Putting Off the Old

In Christ you learn Christ, assuming you have heard about him AND taught in Him, as the Truth is IN JESUS. The old mind of fallen Adam’s heritage of sin and death and works of the devil is futile minded, dark minded, darkened understanding, alienated from the Life of God because of ignorance of the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, the exact image and likeness of God, due to hardness of heart; calloused, selfish, greedy, full of lust and pride that comes before a fall, licentious debauchery, unclean spirits of lust, pride, anger, hatred, jealousy, envy, covetousness, sloth, gluttony, stealing, killing, and destroying lives (Ephesians 2:1-3, 4:17-19, 5:3-8; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 21:8, 22:15; 1 Corinthians 6:9-19; John 10:10).

Put off your old nature which belongs to your FORMER manner of life and is corrupt through lust and deception, and be renewed in the SPIRIT of your MIND, and put on the NEW NATURE, created after the likeness of God in TRUE righteousness and holiness” Ephesians 4:20-24

REMEMBER in the flesh of fallen Adam you are separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of heaven, and strangers to the NEW marriage Covenant, the fulfilled Promises found IN Christ Jesus; having no Living Hope and without God IN THE WORLD. But NOW in Christ Jesus you who were once FAR OFF have been BROUGHT NEAR in the Blood of Christ. For He is our Peace [in Christ we have Peace; in the world we have tribulation] when we become ONE with Christ; the dividing wall broken down, the veil torn [Christ unveils your mind and heart; unveils your old soul so the NEW mind and heart and will of Christ in God can dwell in you]; the body of flesh abolished in the flesh and blood of Jesus to create IN HIMSELF one NEW man instead of two; reconciling you in the one Body and one Spirit of risen Jesus to God our NEW Abba Father. So THEN you are no longer strangers to God or enemies of the Cross but fellow citizens with the saints, and MEMBERS of the Household of God, built upon the foundation of apostles and prophets, CHRIST JESUS HIMSELF the NEW Cornerstone, IN WHOM the WHOLE structure is JOINED TOGETHER (married, wed, hitched, united) AND grows into a holy temple of the Lord; IN WHOM you also are BUILT into it (the BRIDE who has the BRIDEGROOM; belonging to Christ); a DWELLING PLACE of God in the SPIRIT in you (Ephesians 2:11-22; 1 Corinthians 3:16-17, 6:19-20; 2 Corinthians 6:16-18, 7:1, 13:5; Galatians 4:19).

Put off the spotted old garment of fallen Adam we wear when we are dead in our trespasses and sins, walking conforming to this world, following the paths of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit of error, the spirit of this present dark world now at work in the sons of disobedience to God: the sons of the father of lies, the devil (John 8:43-47). Among these you live in the passion, lust, pride of the fallen flesh of the first Adam, following the perverted, twisted desires of body AND mind, so you are of the OLD nature, children of wrath like the rest of mankind (Ephesians 2:1-3).

“Glory only in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world is crucified to you, and you to the world…a NEW creation” Galatians 6:14-15

“I have given them My Words, and the world hates them because they are no longer OF the world, even as I am not OF the world” ~Jesus in John 17:14

“By God’s GREAT mercy you are BORN ANEW…Do NOT be CONFORMED to the passions of your former IGNORANCE…invoke as FATHER the IMPARTIAL JUDGE according to each one’s choices…KNOW you are ransomed from the futile ways of fallen Adam inherited from your earthly fathers…WITH the precious Blood of Christ without spot or blemish…MADE MANIFEST at the end of times for your sake. THROUGH CHRIST you have confidence in God, who raised Jesus from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are IN GOD. Having purified your souls by obedience to the TRUTH…born ANEW not of perishable seed but of imperishable [SEED OF THE WORD] through the LIVING and ABIDING Word of God [Christ in you]…abiding forever…Good News…GROWING UP in Christ the Living Stone, as living stones YOURSELF, built into a spiritual house [NEW temple of God in  your body with Holy Spirit WITHIN from God]…chosen, precious, a holy priesthood [offering your body in spiritual worship, the acceptable offering at the altar is your living body presented and filled with Christ Spirit, fire, and glory]…People stumble because they disobey The Word, Jesus, the Rock that makes them stumble and fall [falling for the falsehood, deception and manipulation; believing the lies of the god of this world, and disobeying the Word, the Will, and the Spirit of God; in rebellion and lawlessness under the activity of satan]. BUT IN CHRIST you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood of believers, a holy nation, God’s own people, that you may DECLARE the wonderful deeds of God who calls you out of darkness into Christ’s marvelous fire Light of glory” 1 Peter 1:3-25

“Behold the glory of Christ with unveiled faces, and be changing into his likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit” 2 Cor 3:18

Jesus gives you the glory His Father gave Him, so you can be perfectly one with Father and Son (John 17:22-23).

“Be made ALIVE [through the Cross, in risen Christ]…by God who is rich in mercy, out of the great Love he loves us, even when we were DEAD through our trespasses, MADE ALIVE TOGETHER WITH CHRIST (by grace you are saved), and RAISED UP WITH CHRIST, and sitting with Him in the heavenly places IN CHRIST” Ephesians 2:1-6

“Rejoicing IN THE LORD…is SAFETY for you. Look out for the dogs, look out for the evil workers, look out for those who mutilate the flesh. For we are the true circumcision who worship God IN SPIRIT, and glory IN CHRIST JESUS” (Philippians 3:1-3; Romans 2:28-29; Galatians 3:27; Colossians 2:11-15).

“IF THEN you have been raised WITH CHRIST, seek the things that are Above where Christ is, seated at the Right Hand of God. Set your minds on things Above, not things on earth. For you have DIED and your LIFE is hidden WITH CHRIST in God” Colossians 3:1-3

Put to death what is earthly IN YOU: fornication, impurity, passion, evil desire, covetousness, idolatry. On account of these things the wrath of God is coming. IN THESE you used to walk when you lived IN THEM. But NOW put them all away: anger, wrath, hatred, malice, slander, foul talk from your mouth. Do not lie, seeing you have PUT OFF the OLD nature with its practices” (Colossians 3:5-9).

AND put on the NEW nature, renewed in Knowledge of God and his glory; after the image of the Creator and his Lamb. HERE [in Christ and Christ in you] there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free man (Colossians 3:11; Romans 2:28-29; Galatians 3:28-29), BUT in Christ, CHRIST is all, and in all of you [who die to sin and come alive to righteousness; die to death and come alive together WITH Christ; die to fallen Adam and come alive to risen Christ; by the divine Power and precious and very great Promises, partake of divine nature (2 Peter 1:3-4): a NEW creation; brought forth in one moment, one day (Isaiah 66:8-9), now, today (2 Corinthians 6:2), a NEW creature of the NEW creation of the NEW covenant.

“IF any one is IN CHRIST you are a NEW creation, the old has passed away, behold, the NEW has come” 2 Cor 5:17

“Behold, I make ALL things NEW” Revelation 21:5

It is done! To the thirsty I GIVE from the Fountain of Water of Life. You who CONQUER have this NEW heritage. I will be your God; My Son having His spotless Bride. But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the polluted, murders, fornicators, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their lot shall be in the lake that burns with fire and sulphur, the second death (Revelation 21:6-8).

Put off fallen Adam’s OLD garments and put on risen Christ’s NEW garments of salvation, robe of righteousness, and white wedding garment.
