The New Creation Race Being

Discussion in 'Doctrinal Discussions' started by Noblemen, Jun 21, 2016.

  1. If I were to sum up the Christian message for our time in a single statement, I would say that, with Paul, it is the message of the new creation race being.
    We can read this in second Corinthians 5:17. Let me paraphrase: if anyone is in union with Christ, he is a new being , a whole new race of people: the old state of things has passed away, there is a new state of things.

    Christianity is the message of this new race of people. It is the message of a whole new creation, an entirely new being, and a wonderful new reality.

    This world was developed for human being. God the Father ultimately brought this about through the appearance of Jesus of Nazareth. Because of this, the new creation is called a Christ-person or Christian. It is Christ the Messiah, the selected and anointed one, who brings about the new creation race of people and a new state of being. Since all human beings have lived in the old state of things, the question is raised in second Corinthians whether we also participate in the new state of things.
    We have belonged to the old creation but the demand is made upon us by Christianity that we participate and understand our part in the new creation race.
    What exactly is the new creation race being? Paul answers first by saying what it is not. It is neither circumcision nor uncircumcised.
    For Paul and the readers of his Galatians letter, the new creation race being meant something very definite. It meant that neither being a Jew nor a pagan is ultimately important and that only one thing counts , namely, our Union with Christ, in whom is the new reality.
    Circumcision or uncircumcised, what does that mean for us? It could mean something very definite, and at the same time something very universal.
    It means that no religion (Think of any and all religions) produces the new creation race being.
    Only the Father can bring about this new creation race being and only a new state of being matters. That means Christianity is not a religion, it is a birthed person by God the father.

    Galatians 6:15 / 2 Corinthians 5:17

    'A new creature'

    Praise God!
  3. 'A new creature' - NOT - a new race.

    The verses you refer to, @Noblemen, speak of the believer individually, not of a company of believers. To use words of our own devising can only introduce error, it is so much better to stick to the words used by the Holy Spirit.

    In Christ Jesus
    Our risen and glorified
    Saviour, Lord and Head.

    If there was anything we learn the most in the book of Genesis is that "seeds" produce after their own kind. The Lord God in attempt to give Adam a help meet so he would not be alone, created all the animals in hopes that Adam would find fellowship in one. God knowing this would never work out made another being using a part from the original man so this new being (woman) would be made after his (Adam's) own kind, and class.

    If it was not good for man to be alone, it is also not good for God to be alone, as all other spiritual beings created were not created after the image of God, nor do any dwell and live in God like man does. This new "creation", this new spiritual being is created in the same class, and kind as God himself!!!

    1Peter 1:23.. Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

    This new creation person is God's own off spring, and truly his own son's and daughters. True intimacy, and fellowship can only be accomplished when two persons are of the same likeness, and kind. Angels or any other kind of spiritual beings do not have this capacity as only the new creation man has.
