The bible makes us understand that we are a new creation in Christ Jesus, but what does it really mean? Is it just an intellectual concept, spiritual concept, or also a physical living reality?
When we say a new creation it seems some do not fully get the whole truth, so permit me borrow from Science and say we a new specie altogether s , we are not the homo sapiens, it is clear that and we see from scripture that something physical happens to the a man when he gives his life to Christ.
Mark 16:16-17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues. They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Jesus speaking here was pointing out that physically in our bodies we are above certain natural limitations the moment we accept Him as Lord. It is clearly stated in scripture in
John 1:12 – 13 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”
Indicating that the moment we became born again we stopped to take after our biological fathers genes and blood but became partakers of a whole new nature which is of God and this nature is both true of our Spirit and Our physical bodies.
2 Peter 1:3-4 says “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”
This goes to say being partakers of the divine nature, the Christian is more God than man, that’s why our bodies can not hold sickness, that’s why we can operate in divine health, that’s why our minds can process thoughts which are of God.
Remember it was the activity of the Holy Spirit in the Body of Jesus Christ that enabled him raise from the dead, and this Holy Spirit is responsible for transforming our physical human bodies the moment we come into Christ, Romans 8:11 establishes this truth
“But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.”
This quickening of the Spirit kills the effect and desire of sin from our very physical bodies, not just our Spirit.
In ending the natural man, can nor receive the Holy Spirit, the unregenerated man can not have the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit. It is given only to the new creation in Christ Jesus.
Meditate upon this truth and allow it sink into your spirit, till it becomes an intricate part of your person, so you can live the God life here on earth.
