A New Creation…

But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. For neither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. (Galatians 6:14-15 NASB)

A new creation…

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. (2 Corinthians 5:17 NASB)

A new creature…

“Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. “I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances. (Ezekiel 36:26-27 NASB)

A new heart and a new spirit…

God’s Spirit placed within us and God causing us to walk in His statutes and to be careful to observe His ordinances…

For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. (Colossians 3:3 NIV)

For you died…

and if He rescued righteous Lot, oppressed by the sensual conduct of unprincipled men (for by what he saw and heard that righteous man, while living among them, felt his righteous soul tormented day after day by their lawless deeds), then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment,  (2 Peter 2:7-9 NASB)

Righteous Lot, that righteous man, felt his righteous soul tormented, the Lord knows how to rescue the godly…

“Behold, all souls are Mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine. The soul who sins will die. (Ezekiel 18:4 NASB)

The soul who sins will die…

We know that no one who is born of God sins; but He who was born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. (1 John 5:18 NASB)

For what I am doing, I do not understand; for I am not practicing what I would like to do, but I am doing the very thing I hate. But if I do the very thing I do not want to do, I agree with the Law, confessing that the Law is good. So now, no longer am I the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me. (Romans 7:15-17 NASB)

No one who is born of God sins…

(I can’t help myself – I must shout “Hallelujah”!!!)

So now, no longer am I the one doing it (sinning), but sin which dwells in me…

(Again, I can’t help myself – I must shout “Hallelujah”!!!)

Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. (Romans 8:1 NASB)

Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. (1 John 3:9 KJV)

The soul who sins will die…

And he answered, “YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND; AND YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.” And He said to him, “You have answered correctly; DO THIS AND YOU WILL LIVE.” (Luke 10:27-28 NASB)

Do this and you will live…

so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. (Romans 8:4 NASB)

The requirements of the Law (Romans 2:26) have been fulfilled in us…

There will be tribulation and distress for every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek, but glory and honor and peace to everyone who does good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. (Romans 2:9-10 NASB)

Glory and honour and peace – Praise You Jesus… 🙂

So if the uncircumcised man keeps the requirements of the Law, will not his uncircumcision be regarded as circumcision? (Romans 2:26 NASB)

Worship You Lord – I just can’t help myself…

so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him. (Hebrews 9:28 NASB)

Without reference to sin… 🙂

Praise You Jesus… 🙂

Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat! But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells. (2 Peter 3:11-13 NASB)

And although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach– (Colossians 1:22-23 NASB)

Holy and unblameable and unreproveable in His sight (as the KJV of Colossians 1:23 states) – holy and unblameable and unreprovable – if we continue on firmly planted in our belief – in our faith – in the gospel – which is our only hope of glory – and we will because He who called us is Faithful and He will also bring it to pass – as the scripture says (1 Thessalonians 5:24) – Hallelujah!!!

May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.  The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it. (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 NASB)

We will not let go of our faith in the Gospel – and what I have shared above is the Gospel – the Good News…

But, beloved, we are convinced of better things concerning you, and things that accompany salvation, though we are speaking in this way. (Hebrews 6:9 NASB)

Here it is in a nutshell…

Jesus (God in human flesh) died in our place and we all died with Him – He became sin on the cross and was punished with the Wrath of God for our sin that we might become the Righteousness of God in Him…

He gave us – those whom He had chosen – a new spirit, a new heart, a righteous soul, the gift of faith and repentance – and in response to our faith (which He gave us as a free gift) in the Gospel – He deposited His Spirit into our new (righteous) spirit and He – the Holy Spirit of God – lives and abides in us forever…

For the sake of His Elect…

We, those whom He has chosen, are holy and righteous…

We, those whom He has chosen, do not sin…

We are a new creation…

Because we do not sin – we died and our life is now hidden with Christ in God – we are no longer under condemnation and we are also no longer under the Law…

But just in case the Law was a problem our righteous soul, our righteous spirit and our righteous heart fulfil the requirements of the Law by loving the Lord our God with all of themselves…

We also have the Mind of Christ – so our minds also fulfil the requirements of the Law…

So which ever way the enemy turns he has nothing on us…

He cannot condemn us…

Our new self is incorruptible as it is produced from incorruptible seed…

It is created in all holiness and righteousness of the truth…

And it will never die…

The soul that sins will die…

But our souls (our righteous souls which feel tormented by the lawless deeds which they behold) will never die…

Because they are righteous and don’t sin…

Not only are we forgiven and cleansed and pardoned with the Blood of Jesus but we are literally made new – caterpillar/butterfly – metamorphosed into the Image of God – we (our new creations) are eternal…

And as such our physical bodies should be filled with light…

But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. (Romans 8:11 NASB)

Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace. (Romans 6:12-14 NASB)

This is the truth of the Gospel and as the Holy Spirit reveals this truth to our new mind, our new soul (our new heart) and our new spirit we are transformed into His Image and become practically what we are – a new creation – a whole new type of humanity – men and women made after the Prototype (the First Fruits) – Jesus Christ – and living like He did in the world – for His Glory and for the Furtherance of His Kingdom… 🙂

By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world. (1 John 4:17 NASB)

For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. (1 Corinthians 6:20 KJV)

Hallelujah!!!

We belong to God… 🙂

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Principal Structural Engineer, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew
