Awakening 2

You are Born-again

You did die and were born-again in Him, you are brand new, a new creation, one that has never been before… so who are you now?

  • We need to know that there was an actual spiritual event when we chose Christ, we died and were born-again and what is born of spirit is spirit.

  • Jesus replied to him, “Truly, I tell you with certainty, unless a person is born from above he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (John 3:3)

  • Jesus answered, “Truly, I tell you with certainty, unless a person is born of water and Spirit he cannot enter the kingdom of God. (John 3:5)

  • What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is spirit. (John 3:6)

  • Don’t be astonished that I said to you, ‘All of you must be born from above.’ (John 3:7)

  • The wind blows where it wants to. You hear its sound, but you don’t know where it comes from or where it is going. That’s the way it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” (John 3:8)

  • So I got born again, who am I now? (John 3:6) this is an actual event in the spirit, not just a decision of the mind, a very real ‘being born a new’, whether you felt it or not.

  • You are Born again of the incorruptible seed of the word of God (1 Peter 1:23)

  • You are a new creation, (2 Cor 5:17, Gal 6:15, Col 3:11) A life giving spirit, not a living soul, you were a living soul who had a spirit, now you are a new superior type of creation, you are a life giving spirit that has a soul. Your life has been transferred into the spirit, what is the born-again spirit? It is Christ.

  • So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit, (1Cor 15:45)

  • The least in the kingdom of heaven (Christ) is greater than the greatest of this world (Adam) (Matt 11:11, Luke 7:28) Man was made a little lower than the angels, but now the born-again person has Christ’s life and is higher than the angels and will judge them. (1 Cor 6:3)

  • Need to know who you are now, I was changed, I am no longer a soul that has a spirit, I am a spirit that has a soul.

  • You actually are a son or daughter of God, born of Him, His offspring, (Gal 3:26, 4:6, Rom 8:14, 19, Luke 20.36, 1 John 3:1, Phil 2:15, Rev 21.7)

  • Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it does not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as He is (1 John 3:2)

So what was born-again? (I was, born of spirit) 

  • What was done away with? I was, born of soul 
  • What became new? All things 
  • What was crucified? I was, born of soul
  • What died with Him? I was, born of soul 
  • What rose with Him? I did, born of spirit  
  • Who is I? my unique personality, the life was taken out of my soul and hidden in Christ in God, in His life, the new spirit 
  • Do you still have a human spirit? maybe, maybe not, I’m not sure if it is relevant any-more? you have the spirit of your mind, which could be anything from holy to demonic, what I do know is, I know I am one spirit with Him, I have His spirit, Its no longer I who lives, & my life is hidden in Christ in God. I am hidden in Him, inside the old me.
  • The much easier way to look at things is… inner man and outer man, inner man is Christ, outer man is now just a house, its your old soul, body of death and memories. Like Lazarus its just your old death clothes of a life you use to have. There is no old man at the resurrection only Christ, show me your old life at the resurrection and I will believe you have one!

The two main pennies that need to drop here are….

  1. Identity makes all the difference in the world, if the enemy can steal you’re identity/position/status/God’s investment in you, who you really really are now, he can steal almost everything from you. For you will never go further than your identity, its your souls DNA.

    Every Creation in the universe has an identity, an angel has a different identity to a human, what is you’re new identity that goes with the new creation that you are. Identity is part of your heart. 

    Your identity is who you think you are; I am a different creation to what I was, therefore my identity must of changed, so what is it now?

  2. With the first man, God breathed spirit in to Adam and he became a living soul, Jesus was much more than spirit, He was God’s very own essence and He was a life giving spirit.

    The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a life-giving spirit. 1 Cor 15:45 

    Here you must understand that you are no longer the living soul, you are now born again, a life giving spirit. 

    You must see the old soul is not you, it was you, you were the old soul, but now you have a new soul connected to your new spirit. The old soul that you know very well, is just encoded neurons now in the brain and heart. 

    If you think you are still the old soul have a look again… The old soul wasn’t born again, it wasn’t made perfect, all old things have not passed away from it, it isn’t in His image, 

    Soul is like software, its information, desires, will, knowledge, it comes from a spirit, living and interacting in the physical body, this living soul creation was to easily flawed so it was changed to a new type of creation, it is not the same as Adam was when he was new, as we are ‘Kainos’ a new type of creation.

    The life giving spirit also has soul, which is software, knowledge, desires, will, interaction, but it is written from a life giving perspective rather than the old spirit’s perspective. So the man named all the domestic animals, all the birds, and all the wild animals. But the man found no helper who was right for himGen 2:20. God created the first human creation amazing, but maybe it was too self centred, easily fooled, too wayward, liked apples too much?

    Anyway your living soul was crucified with Christ, and your life was translated in to Christ. As you go you will be coding new soul, that comes from new spirit.

    You are not a soul with a spirit you are a spirit* with a soul. (*His spirit, one spirit with Him, His life, His mind, His nature etc…) 

    You really are a child of God, born of Him, when you realise that you are actually essence of His essence, identical to Him, (and not just an adopted soul but a born of God spirit, a new life in your old life), when you realise this your relationship and faith will go to a whole new level.

    1. Soul paradigm = most of bible is gibberish to you

      • e.g. its no longer I that lives but Christ who lives,

      • and all old things have passed away behold all have become new,

      • also as He is in heaven so am I on the earth.

    2. Spirit paradigm = everything falls into place and the light turns on.

    You are God’s seed, born of God, therefore you are essence of His essence, life of His life, do you not know that we will judge angels, (1 Cor 6:3) 

    We are suppose to be dwelling in the Holiest of Holy places with our father, dwelling in unapproachable light, not hiding from Him like Adam. 

    Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differs nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all but is under guardians and stewards until the day appointed of the father. (Gal 4:1-2) Though you be a joint heir with Christ, while you are childish in your thinking you will be no different to a slave, awake sleep no more!

    So awakening 2 is; You are born again, a new superior type of creation, you are not the old you you have always known!!
