Putting on the New Man

Of late, I have been sharing with my e-mail list some rather heady messages about the way of Entropy vs the way of Negentropy. This is much the same message, but from a biblical perspective. In other words, this is for the Christians who like to have some scripture references.

I have shared with you how changing your STATE OF CONSCIOUSNESS is how you change YOUR SPIRITUAL CLOTHING, even PUT ON that which you need to enter THE WEDDING FEAST, and that this is done (basically) by you walking that path that Paul walked, the Paul who said, “I die daily” (1Corinthians 15:31), and the Paul who wrote…

“That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; and be renewed in the spirit of your mind; and that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.” (Ephesians 4:22-24)

It’s quite apparent that Paul was willing to go through the difficult and painstaking process of EXAMINING HIMSELF (inwardly) throughout his trials and putting off that which he found to be unacceptable – out of alignment with Christ. He was willing to let his carnal self die (on a daily basis) because he understood that that was the very thing getting in the way of him fully KNOWING (fully experiencing) Christ. In other words, Paul understood that in order to enter “the wedding feast” he had to “put on” the wedding garment (Matthew 22:12) of THE NEW MAN, the new state of consciousness. Here is how Paul described this “new man”…

“And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created him.” (Colossians 3:10)

So who was it that created this new man? It was none other than CHRIST who created the new human which all people have the potential to PUT ON and thereby enter the kingdom of Heaven, and so, THIS NEW MAN can be described simply as A STATE OF MIND, namely, THE MIND OF CHRIST, or to be more specific; a Being who has been renewed in his knowledge and understanding and perspective to the extent that he has been fully conformed (in heart) into the likeness and image of Him who created him.

Beloved, when you allow the states of consciousness which are tied to your carnal mind to fully die off, then you will understand the true meaning of being “born again.” Most Christians today think that being “born again” means to simply declare Jesus Christ to be the Lord and Savior, but there is no outer declaration that can make you reborn in Christ. To truly be “born again” means to allow the mind of Christ to be fully formed in you to the extent that your perspective of EVERYTHING is of that mind. That which is “born of the flesh” is not simply the physical body, but also THE HUMAN STATE OF CONSCIOUSNESS (the carnal mind) which cannot recognize the Living Christ even when it stands before him. This, of course, is what Jesus was getting at with Nicodemus, and why Jesus later said of those who were then still blinded by their carnal minds…

“And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive.” (Matthew 13:14)

An application of this verse for us is that if we do not recognize the Presence of Christ within us, or even recognize this Presence within the Christ-given messages which are shared with us in this day, then we TOO are still blinded by the carnal mind and are still stuck in the carnal state of consciousness which will not allow us to be FULLY CLOTHED in Christ – to be fully “born again.” This unborn state (for lack of a better way of putting it) is why most Christians today look for an OUTER kingdom and for an OUTER salvation instead of them realizing that salvation (the way to inheriting the kingdom) is about THE JOURNEY THROUGH THEIR OWN HEARTS – about them dying to all low vibration thoughts and emotions ON A DAILY BASIS so that they can ASCEND unto the mind of Christ and PUT ON the garments that they NEED for the wedding feast, something that they all hope (and many wrongfully presume) that they’ll soon attend.
