Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17.
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. Romans 8:14-17.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
Today I would like to talk with you about being a new creation in Christ and by the time I finish you are all going to want to be one!
What does it mean to be “a new creation in Christ?” It means coming back into your rightful heirship.
Let Me explain. It has to do with adoption. When a child is adopted by a parent that is not his biological parent that child loses his heirship rights in his natural family and becomes the legal heir of his adoptive family. He is no longer recognized as a child of his biological parent but as a child of his adoptive parent. As far as the law is concerned the child only belongs to his adopted family. The biological parent has no right any longer to act in the child’s life. Legally it is as if the child had never been born to the biological parent. And yet, in reality, the child cannot really lose that biological connection with the natural parent.
I think you are catching on to where I am headed.
When Adam rejected Me and submitted to Satan, he died to Me, to My Spirit—My bloodline so to speak because life is in the blood, and My life is in the Spirit. Satan received Adam and became his new father in the sense of adopting him. Adam transferred his line to that of the devil. He was not born of the devil, you are in My image, of My kind, but he transferred his allegiance to the devil and became legally of his family. That is why My Son told the Pharisees that they belonged to the devil as their father, and that they wanted to carry out their father’s desires, which were murder and lies. John 8:44.
In order for the biological parent to get a child back who has been adopted by another, the parent has to adopt the child away from the adoptive parent. Readopt so to speak. And if it is an adult adoption, the adult has to agree to the adoption.
When you transfer your allegiance to Me, that is, take Jesus as LORD, then you authorize Me to adopt you back into My family. Ephesians 1:5. You become an heir of Mine, a joint heir with Christ. Romans 8:17.
I adopted the Israelites by faith, with the law as their guardian until the fullness of the time came, and then I sent forth My Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, to redeem those who were under the Law, that they might receive the adoption as sons. Galatians 4:4-5. David understood this when he wrote: “Beautiful indeed to me is my inheritance!” Psalm 16:6. He was adopted back in advance, on credit so to speak. So was Abraham. But the adoption was not completed until Christ died to put you back in the Bloodline.
With Me it is not just a paper adoption. It is a new birth. You are born back into My family. This is because it was more than an adoption you went through with Satan, you died to my Spirit and were born into darkness. When I take you back I birth you again so to speak, in My image, which you dulled, corrupted, and distorted by sin. You are born again, it is a new birth from death to life in the spirit. It is as if a child died and then the parents birthed him again to bring him back to their family, a completely new life.
I call the Holy Spirit the Spirit of Adoption because it is by My Spirit that you are born again by water and the Spirit. Romans 8:15.
The Spirit witnesses with your spirit that you are children of God. My life, My Spirit, is in you again. That is how you are My child. That is how you are in My image, of My kind– by My Spirit in you. You are spirit, soul and body—a triune being like Me. My spirit only dwells in the spirits of men—male and female. (When I say “men” I mean mankind, including the male and the female.)
A new creation in Christ. Adopted back. Born again in My love. And an heir of Mine, a joint heir in Christ.
It means all I have is yours.
Do you understand what I just said? That is why I not only am pleased to give you the Kingdom, but I must. It is rightfully yours as My heir. Heir of the world is what I call Abraham and I think you understand what I mean. Romans 4:13.
That is why I gave man dominion over the earth and why I am preparing a mansion for you in Heaven.
The Law of Moses was your monitor until Christ came. An heir is not an heir until he is of age. That is what My servant Paul writes about. He understood this. You will note I did not teach anyone to call Me “Father” until Christ came and was filled with My Spirit.
Come and agree to be adopted by Me. Give your allegiance back to Me, your real Father. The devil cannot keep his hold on you if you come back to Me for I have paid your ransom with a price. People say adoptions are expensive but no one has ever paid the price I paid to adopt you back. I paid with the sinless, spotless Blood of My Son. He paid with His life. My heart is yearning to have My children back. I stretch out My Hands to you all the day.
Jesus told you that unless you eat His flesh and drink His Blood you have no life in you. Just as Adam ate from the tree of the Law and died, so you now must eat from the tree of Life—the broken body of Jesus upon the tree of the Cross—and have the abundant eternal life He came to give you. John 10:10. The Blood of Jesus puts you back in My bloodline. The pure blood of the imperishable seed of My Word and not the corrupt blood subject to sickness and disease of Adam’s perishable seed. It is only in Christ, My Word made flesh, that you become a new creation. It is only in Him that you receive back your rightful heirship.
Come to Me. I want you back in My line because that is who you really are. Even though a child is adopted, he never really loses who he is. There is always something within him that wants to know his real parent even when he was adopted as an infant. I am the One you are looking for. No one else can ever replace Me in your life, for I am your real Father and I want you back. You only have One Father and that is Me. Matthew 23:9.
I love you. You are Mine. Come home to your Father’s house. You will find everything there you are looking and longing for. And you will find that as you turn towards Me, I run to meet you and embrace and kiss you, Luke 15:20, with My left hand under your head and My right hand embracing you. Song of Songs 2:6. And in My left hand are riches and honor and in My right hand there is eternal life. Proverbs 3:16.
