In today’s thought let’s answer this question…What is meant by A NEW CREATION? Are you a New Creation?
Yes…God had us on His mind.
- Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
What do we mean – A new creature? 2 Corinthians 5:17 What this means is that those who become Christians become new persons. They are not the same anymore, for the old life is gone. A new life has begun!
We are recreated by the Spirit through the Word.
- James 1:18 In his goodness he chose to make us his own children by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his choice possession.
- 1 Peter 1:23 For you have been born again. Your new life did not come from your earthly parents because the life they gave you will end in death. But this new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God.
The life of the born again Christian is a true believer and a new creation. The prince of this world (Satan), came to Jesus but could find nothing in Him.
And the prince of the world, (Satan), can come to the New Creation and can find nothing in Him. Do you believe? As a believer, Christ is in you and He overcame Satan.
- 1 John 4:4 But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won your fight with these false prophets, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.
The One who raised Jesus from the dead is in you. You have the life and nature of God, the One that is in you is greater than any force or power outside of you!
You have the very life of God in you. The gift of God is in you. You received Him by faith and you will remain faithful by faith.
- 1 John 5:4-5 For every child of God defeats this evil world by trusting Christ to give the victory. And the ones who win this battle against the world are the ones who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.
David knew where his strength came from and so do we. Psalm 27:1 Jehovah is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? Jehovah is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
The New Creation is victorious in Christ Jesus. Why? Because Jesus said, “In My Name you shall cast out demons.” He has given to the believer the use of His Name and “all authority” has been given to Jesus.
“All authority” belongs to Jesus; but the church, the believers, can use “His authority” because Jesus resides in us through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Remember, this “authority” is not ours it is Christs’.
Only as the believer realizes who He is in Christ Jesus and who’s authority it is, “Jesus’s authority” in Him; will He be able to say, “Satan, in the name of Jesus, leave, you have no way with me”, and Satan will have to flee.
Yes, we are victorious! Satan can have NO HOLD on the believer that refuses to accept any part of Satan in this life.
We as believers do have authority over Satan and his work in and over our lives. Jesus came and defeat Satan for all who will believe. Now we have been given that same authority in Jesus Name. Stand firm on God’s Word and take your God given authority over Satan in your life, TODAY.
As always, love in Christ Jesus,
