YOU’RE NOT A NATURAL MAN .

But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him… (1 Corinthians 2:14Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)).

The natural man is the man that’s not born again; the life in him is the ordinary human life; that’s what makes him a natural man. However, when you’re born again, you’re not by any means a natural man, because your human life has been supplanted by God’s divine life. Jesus said in John 3:6Open in Logos Bible Software (if available), “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”

The one who’s born again is born of the Spirit by the Word: “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever”(1 Peter 1:23Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)). You’re born of the Word the same way Jesus was born of the Word; the life in you is the life of the Word. This is the reason you’re indestructible. We just read it: the Word that gave birth to you—the Word from which you came—is indestructible; it lives and abides forever.

Being born again, you’re the heavenly man; the God-man from heaven, with the life of Christ. Refuse to see yourself as human; you’re divine! As Jesus is, so are you in this world (1 John 4:17Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)). You might ask, “Won’t that be going too far?” No; it’s the truth!

Psalm 82:6Open in Logos Bible Software (if available) says, “I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.”The Lord Jesus quoted the very same scripture in John 10:34-36Open in Logos Bible Software (if available). Until, and unless you see yourself, not as a human being, but as a god in the earth, you’ll suffer what human beings suffer.



You’re not an ordinary person. Recall the words of Jesus in Mark 16:17-18Open in Logos Bible Software (if available): “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”

Anyone who can do the things Jesus outlined in the portion of the scripture above is certainly not human; and that’s you. You’re the believing one; a divine personality, with the same life and nature with God.

CONFESSION

Blessed Father, how great and glorious you are! I celebrate your life in me, which gives me the nature of righteousness and dominion over this world! As Jesus is, so am I—full of your glory, power, and love. Hallelujah!*

John 1:12-13Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)* But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

1 Corinthians 2:14-15Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)* But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned. 15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
