When a person is born into this world they are born spiritually dead. They have no connection to God, they inherited this condition from the father of all men, Adam. All natural born people are susceptible to the wiles of the devil. Natural man accepts his place in the demonic world because he does not know any other way. The natural man does not receive anything from the Spirit of God, he is led to believe it’s all foolishness to him. He is not aware of it but he will live all his natural life and his eternal life with his father the devil.
But God is not willing that any man perish and spend eternity with His enemy the devil. In response to all sinners God ordains intercessors who pray in place of the lost. When the righteous pray, the Holy Spirit begins to woo all sinners with the love of God. The Holy Spirit tugs at their heart in an effort to lead them to Jesus and salvation. All men are in a spiritual battle and most of them are not aware of it. The devil wants them and God wants them, they both have a right to them! Sin gives man a divine connection to the devil and the blood of Christ gives man a divine connection to God.
Deuteronomy 30:19 I am now giving you the choice between life and death, between God‘s blessing or God‘s curse, and I call Heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Choose life.
Every man, woman, and child has been given a choice. They can stay with the devil or have the living God as their Father. If man does not choose, he will remain a child of wrath, a child of the devil. God sent His Son as a sin offering for all of creation, whether they accept Him or not, He died for all mankind. Every man that chooses will undergo a miracle, they will be born-again and become a new creature. The new creature in Christ has their eyes opened and they can see where they came from and where they are going. This will provoke the new creature to offer thanksgiving and praise to the one who truly loves them.
2 Corinthians 5:17 If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold , all things are become new.
This new creature is the result of a miracle at t he new birth, in the twinkling of an eye a child of the devil becomes a child of God. This new creature must renew his mind in order to know who he is and to know his Heavenly Father in an intimate way. It is an indescribable joy to discover the attributes of becoming a new creature in Christ Jesus. All your fears begin to fade away and you feel something in your spirit you have never felt before. Anger, rage, and hopelessness depart from you and you become a more optimistic person, you have a contentment you cannot explain.
John 14:16-17 The Father will send you another comforter, the Spirit of truth; you will know Him because He will dwell in you forever.
The Father sends the Holy Ghost to take the place of Jesus, and that’s all He will talk about is Jesus and what the Father gives Him to speak of. How blessed is this new creature that God himself comes and lives within him, and He reveals Himself to His new child.
