Second Corinthians 5:17, reveals to us ” If anyone be in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things have become new”. Such a revelation prompts us to ask what is the nature of this new creation? How does it differ from the naturally created person?
In our natural created state the natural spirit is governed and ruled by the senses; the sense ruled mind retains domination over our being. The spirit of the natural person is in union with Satan, subordinating itself to the physical body. In this case, a person’s reasoning faculties cannot perceive of God nor become intimate with the hidden person of the heart.
The nature of the new creation is quite different. The person who receives Christ as their savior is now translated into a God class of being. That new creation receives God’s nature, and, consequently, is dominated by God’s revelation.
People who have been made new creations take on the nature of love; a love which does not proceed from reasoning or emotion. It is this new nature alone that loves and develops faith which gains ascendancy over the senses.
New creation persons have taken on the nature of the hidden person of the heart who governs the reasoning faculties; they become spirit ruled, dominating the senses and the physical body. Taking on this nature means that the Name of Jesus becomes a living reality. We assume dominion over demons, disease, and lack. With this new creation nature, God mindedness becomes a daily reality.
