A New Type of Christianity

What is This New Thing?

We are Redeemed

Lordship of the Word

Equipped of God

This is a Faith Fight

Spiritual Forces Stronger than Physical

Two Kinds of Wisdom

Discerning men and women have been asking for a new type of Christianity.

They do not want a new philosophy or a new metaphysical concept of Christ, but an unveiling of the reality that was seen in Jesus in His earth walk.

We have looked back for it, but it is not in the past.

The early Church did not have the thing for which hearts are craving.

You understand that the early Church did not have the Pauline Revelation of Christ, of His Substitution, of the body of Christ, or of His ministry at the right hand of the Father for us.

They had the contact of the three years of Christ's earth walk.

They were New Creations; they had experienced all that God reveals to us through Paul, but they did not understand.

They knew of His death on the cross. They had seen it.

They knew of His resurrection as a reality.

They had eaten with Him, walked with Him, and fellowshipped with Him after His resurrection.

They had seen Him ascend.

They were present on the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit came to the earth, when the Church was born.

They did not know that they were New Creations, however.

They had first-hand Sense Knowledge evidence of everything that took place. They did not know that they were the righteousness of God in Christ. They had marvelous experiences but did not know what caused it.

They were not walking by faith then. They were walking by sight, by hearing, and by feeling.

John says: "That which was from the beginning, that which we have heard, that which we have seen with our eyes, that which we beheld, and our hands handled, concerning the Word of Life." (I John 1:1).

The early Church walked in the realm of the senses.

God permitted it because the fuller Revelation had not been given.

The Pauline Revelation did not get into the hands of the Church until after the beginning of the second century.

What is This New Thing?

It is the New Man created in Christ Jesus. II Cor. 5:17: "Wherefore, if any man is in Christ there is a New Creation."

This new man will be like Christ.

Eph. 2:10: "We are his workmanship created in Christ Jesus."
