Salvation unfolds a new creation …. in and of the fullness of CHRIST JESUS …. in a process of renewal and regeneration by the HOLY SPIRIT …. through a washing of the water of the (rhema) word.
Ephesians 2:10 (NASB) reads: < For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. >
2 Corinthians 5:17-18a (NASB) reads: < Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. Now all these things are from God …. >
John 1:16-17 (NASB) reads: < For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace. For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ. >
2 Corinthians 4:16 (NASB) reads: < Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. >
Titus 3:5 (NASB) reads: < He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit … >
Ephesians 5:26-27 (NASB) reads: < Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless. >
The washing of renewal and regeneration flows by the HOLY SPIRIT through the Rhema Word of GOD. The end-product of this creative work is a spotless, holy and blameless Bride.
Renewal by the HOLY SPIRIT, that unfolds through the Rhema Word, makes the old new; while regeneration by the HOLY SPIRIT makes what is dead in sin alive and, free from the Law of Sin and Death.
The entire creative process of salvation, through renewal and regeneration, is of the fullness of JESUS CHRIST – communicated into us in substance and witness.
We can pursue this reality of salvation, by praying the Word of GOD, by the HOLY SPIRIT.
Activate / Energize, by the HOLY SPIRIT, the faithful and true Witness of YESHUA (Rev 3:14b) that stands in your mouth and heart (Deut 30:14-15) – in Spirit, Water and Blood (1 John 5:10a, 7-8).
Understand that YESHUA upholds all things – for fulfillment – in the Rhema Word of His Power (Heb 1:3b; Eph 3:20).
Luke 24:44-45 reads: < Then He (YESHUA) said to them, “These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me.” And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures. > Amen!
