You Must Know - Part 1
Updated: Mar 19, 2018
YOU ARE BORN SPIRITUALLY DEAD
1 Corinthians 15:22
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
For sure you must know certain facts which can set you on a higher platform of life. I hereby remind you an important truth which common man neglects. Because the common man does not receive the meaning of the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
1 Timothy 2:3-4
For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
1. You are born spiritually dead
In the medical profession, they call still birth for a baby who has no foetal heartbeat.
The Bible says, whoever born naturally, is not eligible for eternal life. The reason is due to the ignorance of carnal and spiritual nature. An ability to reason out and check the difference between soul and spirit. A lack of understanding due to the spiritual blindness caused by the god of this age like how Eve was deceived by Satan.
“... A deceived heart has turned him aside; And he cannot deliver his soul, nor say, “Is there not a lie in my right hand?”
SPIRIT IS DORMANT FROM BIRTH
The effect of Adam’s sin made man a sinner by birth. A sinner means one who is separated from God. The relationship between Adam and God was separated. The order of man’s structure - spirit, soul and body became body, soul and spirit. Due to sin, man’s spirit became dormant within him.
“That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”
The spiritual separation by Adam has a spiritual inheritance to all human beings. No one could reverse it by good works or seeking God more in different methods or faith. Natural birth is joyful for human beings. However, a spiritual sadness fills heaven as God looks at the nature of the spirit which is born is dead. On earth it is a joyous occasion, but in heaven, it is a sadness.
FOOLISHNESS OF PHILOSOPHY
According to the social understanding, everyone is worshiping one God but through different faith. They say we all are going to one direction, which is not true as per the Scripture. Whether Jew or Gentile, everyone is born as spiritually dead.
“Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, in Isaac shall thy seed be called. That is, they which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.”
Romans 5:12 “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned—”
First man Adam sinned and brought separation. Last man Adam tasted the death or separation so that whoever believes in Him shall be saved.
“But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that He by the grace of God should taste death for every man.”
BE WISE - ONE LIFE TO LIVE
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
Children of God means children who are born from God
“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”
