This is where many ministers fail to tell the full truth. Ministers cannot please God by telling people only how to become dead legally but not how to live spiritually. Don’t preach or teach that somehow the New Creation is one of weakness or that the church is just a hospital with a bunch of sick folk. Nothing could be more demonic.
I JOHN CHAPTER 5
4 For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.
5 Who is he that overcomes the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
That is EVERYONE that is born of God overcomes the world; not just some of them. Remember we are partaker of Christ born again reality. He carries us as surely as a woman carries a Child to birth. He has also proven he would give his life for us. We don’t have to worry about failure as long as we from a pure heart trust in him and HIS WAY. One day at the resurrection we will become life giving Spirits ourselves and will have enormous powers to do as we will because our will has become God’s will of our own accord. At that point in time God will put all things under us in Christ for us to rule over, even angels.
In as much as we have been begotten by God’s Word. Like a man’s DNA begetting a child, it is by the instruction of the Word by which we also grow to that point of birth. Let no one tell you that you can pick and choose the instructions but you must follow them all to be a proper child. Any child in the womb not following the DNA instructions for development can even end up a miscarriage. Now no one can end up a miscarriage in Christ as long as they honestly accept all that Christ says. People who refuse to in honesty accept all the words of God know who they are. This is what condemns and causes a forfeiture of the resurrection birth as Christ explains, “This is the condemnation that light is come into the world and men preferred the darkness instead of the light.
Here is the power that we have now in Christ; faith in him and what he says.
II PETER CHAPTER 1
2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
3 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:
4 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.
5 ¶ And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
9 But he that lacks these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:
Notice the type of things God has provided for us to over come all things. Also notice that those who want what God is offering must choose to actively nurture these things in themselves. This is STILL FREE WILL…Yet since you are legally dead in the flesh already, you don’t have to worry about being condemned as long as you love the truth instead of the darkness of this world. God’s Word (HIS LAW) is truth. What you want to do is use EVERY situation to grow in character because the good things that you are able to attain to in this world will last an eternity for you. You will have taken on Characteristics of God partially because of yourself. You will have also made that decision. During this process you will run into temptations that you may not see how to resist, wither it is Homosexuality or any other hurt filled thing, lustful action like stealing or adultery. Explained below is where the POWER to defeat anything comes in spades.
