Understanding the new creation reality is so vital to an overcoming Christian life. If you don't know who you really are, you can never experience the fullness of abundant life in Christ.
We've heard it preached our entire Christian lives, "You are a new creation! Old things have passed away and all things have become new!" But do we really understand what this means? When we come to Christ, does God just make us better versions of ourselves? Or does something much more profound happen?
A Divine Fusion Takes Place
Recently God gave me a vision of what happens to us at salvation and it radically altered the way I see myself. I saw the moment God encountered Mary in Luke 1:31-35 telling her she would bear the Christ Child. I saw the person of the Holy Spirit overshadow her. I saw Mary's DNA and the Holy Spirit's DNA. I saw them intertwine and become one, creating Jesus in her womb, fully God and fully man.
Then the vision shifted to me. I saw myself at salvation. I saw the Holy Spirit overshadow me and fill me. My body became the temple of the Holy Spirit. I also saw my spirit man's DNA and the Holy Spirit's DNA. I saw them intertwine and become one.
I saw the Holy Spirit wrap around my human spirit like two DNA strands coming together as one, just like when the DNA from a father and mother mix together to form a new baby. It looked like the Double Helix. As the Holy Spirit wrapped around my human spirit, they fused together, becoming one and forming a brand new creation. This fusion of Holy Spirit and my human spirit formed Christ in me!
Heavenly DNA—Divine Nature
1 Corinthians 6:17 declares, "But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with Him" (MEV). This revelation was in Scripture the whole time! I became one spirit with the Holy Spirit and I now have a new holy, divine nature.
This is Christ in me, the hope of glory (Col 1:27, 2 Pet 1:4). Divine DNA from God was fused into my human spirit causing me to become a partaker of God's divine nature! I was truly a brand new creation. As Holy Spirit became one with my human spirit, I was "born again" and Christ was formed inside of me. I was much more than a better version of myself. I was something brand new!
When you receive Christ as your Savior and the Holy Spirit takes up residence inside of you, He actually fuses Himself together with your spirit. You become one with God! You have His divine nature inside of you. You are a brand new creation, with new desires and a new life. Your core identity is completely transformed. Christ's very nature and identity is now completely formed in your spirit. It's a glorious transformation! This is why you are holy, righteous and clean!
I have so much more to teach you on this amazing subject. I have just put together a teaching series called Divine DNA—New Creation Reality. I think it's one of the most important teachings I have ever done. Having divine DNA in your spirit has so many effects on your life as you become transformed in your spirit, soul and body.
I encourage you with all my heart to sow this teaching into your mind and heart today and learn who you really are! Once you know who you are, the devil will never be able to lie to you again and you will walk in power, victory and freedom.
