New Creation Realities
Pastor George K. Annan
Man is a spirit having a soul and living in a body. If a person gets Born Again it is not your body or mind but your spirit that is Born Again. Why spirit? The transgression of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden resulted in a spiritual death or second death.
Romans 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
When we get Born Again our dead Spirit is regenerated and given a new life called Zoë in Hebrew meaning the life of God.
John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
God forgives our sins and accepts us as new creatures.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new.
Even though the Born Again experience is a spiritual one the changes that takes place are so real that it affects our relationship to heaven and how we influence the earth with spiritual principles. They are referred to as New Creation Realities and are categorized as follows:
1. Our position or who we are in Christ
2. Our potential or what we can do in Christ
3. Our possessions or what we have in Christ
