A GLIMPSE HOPE; THE NEW SPIRIT

A GLIMPSE OF HOPE; THE NEW SPIRIT

Posted by

WELCOME BACK FAMILY. HERE WE ARE ONCE AGAIN DIVING INTO THE WORD, TO DISCOVER WHO WE ARE IN CHRIST JESUSWE ARE STILL ON THE QUESTION “WHY IN THE WORLD DID JESUS COME?”,  AND WE’VE GOTTEN AS FAR AS “GOD’S NEW PLAN FOR MAN; THE NEW SPIRIT”. 

IM SOUL JA, BY THE WAY, AND IF YOU ARE WITH US FOR THE FIRST TIME, WELCOME TO THE FAMILYWE ARE SO GLAD TO HAVE YOU ON BOARD. FEEL FREE TO EXPLORE THE COMMUNITY LOBBY, AND ENJOY SOME OF THE AMENITIES THERE. THE  H.J TRUTHERS FORUMS  ARE ALSO AVAILABLE; LOTS WONDERFUL PEOPLE , AND REALLY INTERESTING CONVERSATIONS,THERE.  IN OTHER WORDS, JUST MAKE YOURSELF AT HOME.

A BRIEF TOUCH UP ON THE LAW

WEVE SPOKEN ABOUT THE LAW THAT GOD GAVE HIS PEOPLE, AND HOW THE LAW COULD NOT MAKE THEM LIVE RIGHT. THE LAW SHOWED THEM THE WAY TO IN, BUT IT DID TO NOT PROVIDE THEM ANY ABILITY/POWER TO WALK ON THE ROAD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. FOR EXAMPLE, ALL THAT THE LAW DID WAS TO TELL THEM THAT ADULTERY WAS WRONG. BUT THE LAW COULD NOT HELP THEM OVERCOME THE LUST OF THE FLESH.

THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN KNOWING THE RIGHT THING TO DO, AND ACTUALLY DOING IT. THEY KNEW WHAT THE LAW SAID, BUT THEY STILL WALLOWED IN SIN AND DESTRUCTION.  JUST LIKE A SMOKER WHO BUYS A PACK OF CIGARETTES AND READS THE WARNING ON THE BOX: SMOKING DAMAGES YOUR LUNGS”, AND STILL GOES AHEAD AND SMOKE. THEY ARE NOT WALKING ACCORDING TO THE KNOWLEDGE. 

GOD’S DECLARATION OF MAN’S FATE

SO GOD SAID TO HIMSELF IM TIRED OF THIS. I AM GOING TO BRING ABOUT A NEW COVENANT THAT WOULD MAKE YOU OBEY ME.”

JEREMIAH 31:33

33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel;  After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts;  and will be their God, and they shall be my people

GOD SAID, THROUGH JEREMIAH(PARAPHRASING)

“BECAUSE OF SIN, YOU CANNOT SERVE ME RIGHT. SO I’M GOING TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. I’M GOING TO TAKE OUT THAT NATURE. I AM GOING TO CHANGE IT. 

THEYR GOING TO KNOW ME NOW, AND SERVE ME, BECAUSE THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE SOMETHING NEW IN THEM.”

WHAT EXACTLY IS GOD TALKING ABOUT? WHAT IS GOD TALKING ABOUT?

YOU KNOW, SIN IS A SPIRITUAL NATURE INSIDE MAN. IT CANT BE SEEN WITH THE OPTICAL EYES, BUT ITS STILL THERE ALL THE SAME

SO GOD SAYS, MORE EXPLICITLY,  IN EZEKIEL 36: 26

26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you:  and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.   27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.   28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers;  and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.   29 I will also save you from all your uncleannesses:  and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.

THE NEW SPIRIT FOR MAN 

NEW SPIRIT OF MANNOW WHEN THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT HEART”, A LOT OF THE TIMES, IT IS NOT REFERRING TO THE FLESHY ORGAN THAT CIRCULATES BLOOD AROUND YOUR BODY. WHEN THE WORD TALKS ABOUT HEART, IT IS NORMALLY REFERRING TO THE HUMAN SPIRIT; THE INWARD MAN. SO GOD IS TALKING ABOUT THE REAL YOU, ON THE INSIDE.  

THE HEART OF STONE IS THE STUBBORN, REBELLIOUS SPIRIT THAT WALK IN GODS LIGHTHE IS TALKING ABOUT THE OLD SPIRIT THAT HAS BEEN CORRUPTED BY THE NATURE OF SIN. 

THEREFORE, GOD WAS SAYING,

I AM GOING TO TAKE AWAY THAT STUBBORN/DISOBEDIENT SPIRIT/NATURE, AND GIVE THEM AN OBEDIENT HEART/SPIRITA NEW SPIRIT, AND NATURE, THAT IS EASILY SUBMISSIVE TO MY WORD.” 

THATS THE CHANGE THAT GOD WAS TALKING ABOUT. HE SPOKE THROUGH THE PROPHET JEREMIAH AND SAID I WILL PUT MY LAW IN THEIR HEARTS.”

WELL IN EZEKIEL, HE EXPLAINS IT IN DETAIL; HE SAYS I WILL GIVE YOU A NATURE THAT IS OPPOSITE TO THE OLD ONE.” BUT THATS NOT ALL. HE SAYS NOT ONLY WILL I GIVE YOU A NEW NATURE, I WILL ALSO PUT MY OWN SPIRIT WITHIN YOU AND MAKE YOU OBEY MY WORD.”

THATS GODS PLAN.  AT FIRST THEY COULD NOT KEEP HIS WORD. THEY COULD NOT WORSHIP HIM AS HE DESIRED, BECAUSE THEY HAD THE NATURE OF SIN IN THEM. THE NATURE PULLED THEM FROM THE RIGHT DIRECTION, BUT GOD IDENTIFIED THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM.  HE SAYS

I AM GOING TO CHANGE IT.”

THE PROMISE OF SALVATION; A NEW SPIRIT, FOR AN APPOINTED TIME

 

HERES THE TRUTH. EVEN THOUGH IT WAS PROPHESIED SEVERAL HUNDRED YEARS BEFORE JESUS CAME, IT DIDNT COME TO PASS TILL HE ASCENDED TO HEAVEN. IT WAS A PROPHETIC MESSAGE REFERRING TO WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN AFTER JESUS HAS DIED, RESURRECTED AND ASCENDED.

BUT WHY IS THAT SO?  WHY WASNT IT SOMETHING THAT WAS TO TAKE PLACE IN THE TIME OF THE PROPHETS?

IT WAS SIMPLY BECAUSE, UNTIL JESUS CHRIST ASCENDED TO HEAVEN, THE SPIRIT OF GOD DID NOT DWELL WITHIN A MAN.  THE HOLY GHOST ONLY CAME TO DWELL WITHIN MEN AFTER JESUS RESURRECTED, AND ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN. HE CAME AND RESTED, FROM TIME TO TIME, ON THE PROPHETS OF OLD. BUT HE NEVER CAME TO DWELL IN THEM; THAT PRIVILEGED ONLY CAME DURING THE TIME OF THE APOSTLES.

THEREFORE, IT WAS A PROPHETIC MESSAGE OF WHAT WAS GOING TO TAKE PLACE DURING, AND AFTER, THE TIME OF JESUS. IT WAS A REVELATION, INTO THE FUTURE, OF WHAT JESUS WAS GOING TO DO. JESUS WAS GOING TO COME AND CAUSE A CHANGE IN THE COURSE OF NATURE; HE WAS GOING TO CAUSE A SPIRITUAL CHANGE IN THE NATURE OF MAN.

HOPE RISING ON THE HORIZON

BUT HOW DID IT HAPPEN? HOW DID HE TAKE OUT THE OLD NATURE?

HE SAYS

I WILL TAKE OUT YOU SINFUL NATURE AND GIVE YOU A RIGHTEOUS NATURE.”

HOW?  IS IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE THE OLD HEART CHANGE FOR A NEW AND OBEDIENT ONE? HAS IT HAPPENED ALREADY TO ME, OR DO I HAVE A ROLE TO PLAY? 

EMPHATICALLY YES!!!!!

IT HAS HAPPENED TO EVERY CHRISTIAN; THE OLD NATURE HAS BEEN TAKEN AWAY!!!!! GLORY!!!!! THERE IS A NEW SPIRIT AVAILABLE TO EVERYBODY.

THERE IS SO MUCH TO DISCOVER, BUT WE ARE OUT OF TIMEHOWEVER, THINK ABOUT ITWE’LL FIND OUT HOW IT ALL HAPPENED IN OUR NEXT VIDEO

TILL THEN, STAY BLESSED,

WALK IN THE LOVE OF GOD,

BE THE LIGHT WHEREVER YOU ARE.

GOD BLESS YOU!!!!!
