We Died To Our Old Nature (Kenneth Hagin)

We Died to Our Old Nature

By Rev. Kenneth E. Hagin

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.(2 Cor. 5:17)

When we were born again, we died to our old nature. We died to our diseases. And we rose in the fullness of life, free from our sins and diseases.

I was reading a sermon by a Methodist minister once. In his sermon, he shared the following story:
  “I was in bondage to tobacco. I was in a large city at a Methodist conference and wanted a cigarette. So I went into the back alley and smoked a cigarette.
[If any of the brethren had seen him, they would have taken his ordination papers away from him.] Afterwards, I felt so condemned.

“I said to the Lord, ‘Lord, I’ve done my best. I know that I don’t need that and I shouldn’t be bound by anything. And yet, I’m under bondage. I’ve prayed and fasted sometimes as long as two weeks and I still go right back to it.’

“Then I heard the Lord say, ‘That’s the problem. You’ve tried to do it yourself. Don’t you know that I delivered you from all bondage at Calvary?’ I said, ‘Yes, that’s right. You did. Thank You, Lord. I’m delivered!'”

From that day on, he never wanted another cigarette. You see, he accepted God’s deliverance and was set free!

In the area of healing, many people are struggling and trying to be healed. They don’t realize that Jesus already delivered them from all sickness and disease at Calvary and that all they have to do is accept it and thank God for it.

Confession
Thank You, Father, for delivering me from sickness and disease at Calvary. I accept it and thank You for it!

    Mike:

    Jesus was made sin with with your weaknesses. You cannot defeat sins with “commitment”. We overcome because Jesus was made alive from becoming dead in our union with satan.

    Confess Him (Jesus) as your Lord, and confess your crucifixion with Him and the power of those sinful desires will die. “Get real” intent on this and your mind will change.

    Fight the passions of your body with God’s Word of Jesus’ work and His Blood. It will weaken as satan’ grip on you must let go.

    Love in Christ,
    JR MENDA

    Once a person realizes that they cannot live the Christian life in their own strength, and totally depends upon Jesus the sin bearer they will truly walk in total victory. (2 Co.5:21) For then the Holy Spirit will lead and guide them in the truth of God’s Word, which says He (Jesus) TOOK our sins, borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows. And then it says He was wounded for our transgressions, and bruised for our iniquities and the chastisement of our peace He took (pass tense) on the Cross. (Isa.53:4-5)In (Rom. 8:1-2) It states: There is therefore now no CONDEMNATION to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the LAW of the Spirit of Life has made me FREE from the LAW of sin and death. The entire chapter of Romans teaches believers how to walk in victory over sin and the flesh Amen! God Bless Rev. Stuck

    Just above you can read my simple story of failure.

    God has tremendously changed my life.

    After my Ordaination on August 28, 2011, the Senior Pastor at City Of Refuge Church in Donna, Texas spoke with me over lunch about renting her Church on Tuesday nights to hold my own
