Human Nature vs Divine Power in Renewed Man

God's plan for humanity is very simple; since the beginning of time God has planned for us to live the God kind of life, an abundant life- a life full of victory, joy, peace and power. In Genesis 1, we read about the creation of man.



God says in Genesis 1 verse 26, "Let us make man in our image after out likeness and let them have dominion... over all the earth."



So, in order for man to completely understand their identity, from a God perspective, we have to find out how God describes Himself: what His nature is like, and the kind of environment He lives in. Although Adam bowed the knee to Satan and forfeited his God given authority, God sent His only son Jesus, to redeem us from this curse.



The Bible says in Hebrews 1 verse 3 of Christ, " Who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person".



Jesus was manifested in the flesh to declare and make known heaven's will for our life.Many believe that Jesus is our example, but really, Christ is the literal indwelling of the anointing of God- resident in every believer. Jesus did not come just to be our example, He came so that He might go to the cross at Calvary, pay the price in full, spill his blood to cleanse our sin and rise from the dead; in order that He might justify us in the eyes of His Father. When Jesus died on the cross, we died with Him according to Galatians 2 verse 20,



" I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me."



This means that the life I've previously lived as a by product of Adam's spiritual decision to come under the rule of Satan, has been completely destroyed by faith through Christ's provision.



The Bible says in Ephesians 2 verse 6, "We have been raised together to sit with Christ in Heavenly places," It also says in Colossians 3 verse 1, "If ye be seated with Christ, seek those things which are above where Christ sits on the right hand of God. Set your affections on things above, not on things on the earth. For you are dead and your life is hid with Christ in God."



This means my new life is hidden in the brightness of the Father's glory, and in the image of Christ.



Luke 5 verse 38 Jesus said, " But new wine must be put into new bottles, and both are preserved."



The abundant life Jesus came to give is a life in the Spirit. The God kind of life is to be full of the Power of God and to cause the glory of heaven to be radiated and transmitted from our inner man where Christ presides to the natural realm; where God intends to reach everybody that does not know Him. In order to be filled with the spirit and the glory, God had to give us a nature of righteousness that has not been contaminated by sin. We have now been justified by faith, meaning 'just as if we never sinned'. Our new identity in Christ is an identity that reveals truth to every part of our being and to the world because we have been born by the spirit, Jesus said. The Holy Ghost is the spirit of truth.



In John 14 verse 6 Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life." The bible also says in 1 Corinthians 6 verse 17, "he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit."



As soon as we received Christ, our spirit man united and became one with the Spirit of Truth and the nature of God.



John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, 'If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.'
