Be Born Anew
be born-anew is to receive the Spirit of Christ into your human
spirit. Christs Spirit bears the life of the resurrected
Christ as the Seed (Greek, sperma) of God the
Father, bearing the life and nature of God our Father, now to
become our new life and nature. In this way we are born anew.
3:6 …that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
1 Cor. 6:17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one
spirit. Col. 1:27 To them God has chosen to make known among
the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery (musterion,
secret that only God can reveal), which is Christ in you…
1 John 4:13 We know that we live in him and he in us,
because he has given us of his Spirit. Romans 8:16
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit,
that we are the children of God:
take Gods Spirit of life into us is very easy.
His death on the cross, Christ shed His blood and accomplished
perfect redemption for us Hes paid for our sins and ego-centric
selfishness that has separated us from Him for so long. So, all
problems between God and us have been fully solved. Romans
5:6 For when we were yet without strength, in
due time Christ died for the ungodly. All there
is left to do is …receive Him.
John 1:12 But as many as received him,
to them gave he power to become the sons of God,
them that believe (trust in, cling to, and rely upon) on
Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus is right now available and
ready to come into each one of us, if we just open our heart to
Him in a simple way. By calling upon Him by name Jesus you
will touch the Lord. The living Spirit of Christ
will come into your human spirit and you will be one
with Him forever never to be separated again.
immediately, deep within, something new will come to birth
Something you have never experienced before. The peace, the
joy, and the satisfaction that is of relationship with the
indwelling Christ alone will grow day by day. Your whole
life will begin to be changed … now around a new center,
Christ within your spirit. At last, your search has
ended - you have become a normal human filled with God within your
human spirit, fulfilled as God intended. Col. 2:10
And ye are complete in him …
can demonstrate that man has been created having three distinct
organs by visualizing man as being made as (3) concentric circles.
Man consists of (3) three principle organs spirit, soul, and body.
The innermost circle is the human spirit of man. As
Christians, we have received and are governed by the Lord as the
Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus Rom 8:2a. He then is
dwelling within, and one with, our human spirit (1Cor 6:17).
Christs spirit proceeds to flow from His abode in our human
spirit, located in the midst of out being (Daniel 7:5, Col
1:26-27, Rom 8:8-10).
The middle circle represents the soul of man, his
self being, which has three faculties - mind, emotion, and will.
The outermost circle represents the human body, the
container of our being, having its five (5) senses.
these three circles as representing the three parts of man, as a
self-soul, (in the middle circle), he is intended to
be ruled from deeper within, from inside his spirit,
where reality and true life reside, not his body.
three concentric circles indicate the proper order of our being;
that we, as a soul self, are to be ruled by the life of Christ
located in our innermost man, our spirit, from inside out.
Thus, the human spirit with Christ in it is to rule our self-soul,
and the submissive self-soul, in turn, is to rule the works and
actions of the body. We may note this proper order of our being
from this verse.
Thes. 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you
wholly (totally, completely); and I pray God your
whole spirit and soul and body be preserved
blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
