The Truth

I just had to share with you these “8 New Creations Realities” written by my Pastor, Dr. Christopher Longgrear, www.freshfireministries.org.  He and his wife, Sandy, pastor Fresh Fire Ministries Church in Parkersburg, West Virginia.

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any person is [in-grafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come! AMPLIFIED BIBLE

What this means is that those who become Christians become new persons.  They’ re not the same anymore, for the old life is gone. A new life has begun! New Living Translation

When someone becomes a Christian, he becomes a brand new person inside. He is not the same anymore. A new life has begun! The Living Bible

#1- In Union with Christ Jesus, there is no ‘us’!
We’ve been absorbed into the Father, Son, & Holy Spirit when we received the gift of eternal life!

#2- In Him, we’ve been crucified, we died, were buried, arose with Him as His spiritual seed!
Romans 6/6 & Galatians 2/20 tell us that we were crucified with Him, & now live in Him, through the economy of God in manifesting salvation! Jesus became all that we were in our sinful & fallen state, in His death, so that we could become all that He is in resurrection, when we’re Born-again!

#3- He lives in us via the Holy Spirit!
To receive eternal life literally required the Holy Spirit to place His life into us, which is the divine life of the Holy Trinity! That means that every Christian has been born of God, literally, vitally, & actually! God is in you, now & forever!

#4- We have resurrection life in us!
In the New-birth, you have the same life abiding in you that raised Jesus from the dead! Hallelujah, you are now free from spiritual death completely, & physical death can only be temporary, should you die before Jesus returns from Heaven!

#5- We are human vessels of heavenly power & glory!
2 Corinthians 4/7 tells us that we have heavenly treasure in these flesh & blood temples, so that the excellency of the power of God has a home to dwell in & from which to flow! God in us is dedicated to flow through us, surge over us, & radiate from us, into the lives & hearts of people in the world at-large!

#6-We are already & forever eternally alive!

All that He is, we are also!    Colossians 2/9 & 10 tells us that we are complete in Him & He is complete in the Father & Spirit! In completeness in Jesus, we have eternal life, resurrection life, divine life, and everlasting life! As He is, so are we, now & forever!

#7- In Christ Jesus, we live, move, & have our being!
We’re alive in Him, we thrive, flourish, & flow in Him, & He is the vital & literal source of our eternal being! We can’t lose His life, because it’s divine, eternal, & resurrection life, which has overpowered death & has destroyed the power of sin!

#8- We are eternally born of God & united with Him!
1 Peter 1/23 tells us that we’re Born-again of incorruptible seed, the seed of God, of the Word of God, which lives forever! That means we’re in Him spiritually, & He’s in us spiritually, & personally! We are now the children of God, through faith in Jesus, through the agency of the Holy Spirit! That goes beyond adoption, that produces transformation, for though we once were not the children of God, now we are & always will be!
