“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.” Romans 8:2 KJV
As promised in the last capsule I intend to show you that despite the outward similarities between the Old Creations (that is Outcasts and Servants) and the New Creations, they are completely different at the core. Understanding this core difference is what will unlock your understanding of the relationship with the Father which is the New Covenant; the reality that the Old Covenant was a sign posting for, using types, shadows and patterns. The example we used in the last capsule is healing. Whilst the Outcasts and Servants had Healing as a covenant promise, the New Creation have Divine Health (freedom from sickness and disease), and healing if needed. But to really understand the root of the difference we need to first examine the origin of the Old Creation. Man is made of three parts , spirit, soul and body or man is a spirit, he has soul and lives in a body. In summary the real you is your spirit (Genesis 2:7, James 2:7) and this is where the fundamental difference is, 1 Corinthians 15:45-48 ( For a more detailed study on spirit, soul and body refer to capsules 24-31, 2015)
“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: (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.” Romans 5:12-14 KJV
The fundamental difference between the Old Creation and the New Creation is the spirit within. Romans 5:12-15 is a wonderful passage. In summary it says when Adam fell, he became SPIRITUALLY DEAD, his nature became SIN NATURE (there are 4 implications to this but we will only discuss one here). Spiritual death will eventually produce physical death, (sickness/disease is death in SLOW MOTION). From Romans 5:12, we see that this SIN NATURE is a contagion, passing down seamlessly through generations (both Outcast and Servants) and bringing with it sickness and disease.
'Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses' Romans 5:14a (Moses here represents the Old Covenant).
This is why the Old Creation must of necessity have healing ministered from OUTSIDE because his spirit is continually producing death from the inside (remember that lack, sickness/disease, demonic oppression and condemnation of sin are all expressions of death). I hope you are getting the picture?
“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.” Romans 8:2 KJV (Romans 8:1-4 for context)
Now consider the New Creation. Whilst the Old Creation has in its spirit , the law of sin that produces death, the New Creation has in his spirit a Law that is producing LIFE in Christ Jesus. The Old Creation (both Outcasts and Servants) is at core child of the devil! strong words but true (John 8:44). The New Creation is cut from the same spiritual fabric with Christ, the whole of Romans chapter 8 concentrates on validating this truth, over and over. The Old Creation is Spiritual dead, so his spirit can only produce death, it's a law. The New Creation is spiritual alive (life in Christ Jesus), so his spirit continually produces life, that is a law.
“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.” Romans 8:11 KJV
Romans 8:11, is saying the same thing, because the spirit of God dwells in the New Creation, there is a continuous quickening. It is like a dynamo generating life. The New Creation already have the spirit of Christ in him (Romans 8:9-10), it is no longer a prayer or desire, that is who he is, its a done deal (Psalm 51:10).
“He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)” John 7:38-39 KJV
John 7:38-39, also speaks of the truth that the spirit of the New Creation flows outward like a living water, referring to the continuous life supply within . I can show you this over and over throughout the scriptures. I hope you can see the startling and fundamental difference between the Old Creation (Homo Sapiens) and the New Creation, it is not just cosmetic. Why is the modern church not teaching this, why have we completely forgotten who we are when scripture after scripture screams this difference? Most just gloss over this truth as if it does not matter. Until you understand and embrace this truth you will suffer identity crisis, and struggle with a lot of things. With all these in mind, in the next capsule we would look at some 'simple' things we must do to remove this rust, so that you can walk in the reality of who you are as a New Creation. It is time you begin to walk in Health, not just healing, you will not need to struggle with lack, you will be free of demonic influences and condemnation of sin.
NEW CREATION, NEW COVENANT, NOTHING LESS!
I believe even the best of us is barely scratching the surface of who we are as New Creation. For too long we have scratched and begged for scraps, it is time to live like New Creations that we are.
