WHAT MANNER OF MAN IS THE BELIEVER?

WHAT MANNER OF MAN IS THE BELIEVER?

The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

John.3.8

We are not Ordinary! Blood has been shed for us! The believer is a GodMan. 

The believer is a new creature; a never before seen kind of creature, one without any past, he has become a new man in Christ -2Cor.5.17 Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come! (AMP)

The believer does not sin for he is born of God, he shares identity and DNA with God -1John.3.9 – Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.

The Believer is a son of God -John.1.12 – But as many, as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:

The Believer is indwelled by the very Spirit of God, the Holy ghost resides in the believer and he is pleased to be at home in us -1Cor.6.19 – Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?

The Believer is a manner of man that stands on earth as the representation of Christ,  they are Christ on earth 1John.4.17 – Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. 2Cor.5.20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors, God making His appeal as it were through us. We [as Christ’s personal representatives] beg you for His sake to lay hold of the divine favor [now offered you] and be reconciled to God. (AMP)

The Believer is one that has overcome the world, 1John.4.4 – You are of God, little children, and have overcome them because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

We must consciously walk in the reality of who we are in Christ,  we are the needed not the needy, we must let our light so shine that men may be pointed to the way.

Confession: I am a Godman, made to be just like, I walk in this consciousness, and after the manner of man I am in Christ Jesus.
