New Creation Realities:New Man: New Circumcision*
?Natural circumcision is the cutting away of the foreskin of the penis. According to the Bible, God Himself introduced it to Abraham as the sign of the covenant that he made with him. So, it is not just good hygiene.
? And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly…….. And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.Genesis 17:1-2, 14 KJV
?In this special encounter: *God made circumcision as a part of an everlasting covenant with Abram (whose name he changed to Abraham) and all of his descendants including Jesus, who was circumcised too. *He was told to circumcise every male in his household .*God promised, named and gave Abraham, a son with his barren 90 year old wife Sarah whose name at first was Sarai.
? Natural Circumcision was a type of what God would do in the New Man at salvation. Only this time He Himself would do this spiritual circumcision in our flesh! Colossians 2:10-11
?This is exactly what God did when He made me a New Man in Christ Jesus at 15 years old. God circumcised my ENTIRE body as He does everyone who is born of Him, male or female. In this, He totally removed the evil nature, bent or taste for sin from my old satanically perverted human body
?He does this in every one who is born again by removing the law of sin and death from our entire bodies and installing a new law, the law of the Spirit of life in ChristJesus which now rules this spiritually new circumcised body. This body is now alive unto God and does not desire evil or sin but prefers holiness and righteousness. It is now made an instrument of righteousness. Romans 6:13
However, we were not made into robots, and so our souls souls (mind, will and emotions) must daily *choose* to love and obey God and not to take or force our circumcised bodies into sin as they now belong to God.
*Reflect & Repond*
We fully agreed with God in the New Birth for Him to personally circumcise our entire flesh, so that our bodies can be His Holy temples: the Body of Christ. What then is your daily responsibility in this?
*Scripture In Focus*
?And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:Colossians 2:10-11 KJV
?For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.Romans 8:2 KJV
