CHAPTER 4 – The NEW SAINT IS IMPUTED the DIVINE NATURE of GOD {Gods’ DNA – DIVINE NATURE of the ALMIGHTY}.

What is DNA {Deoxyribonucleic Acid}? Why is it important in our lives? All of the federal and state crime labs, crime dramas on television, in the movies, and in written novels, etc. use something called “DNA” to identify a particular person(s) involvement in the investigation of a missing person or a crime. It can also be used to link and identify numerous persons {DNA fingerprinting} to a particular genealogy or ancestry of a family tree. All living creatures have DNA! But one interesting fact is that while all living creatures have DNA and some are similar, each species has its OWN peculiar DNA. What is interesting to me is that man cannot accept the fact that because each species has its own DNA, it MUST indicate the involvement and presence of God in His physical creation of all the species.

Some really interesting God imputed miracles happen to a NEW CREATION in Christ! Only those who are truly “Born Again” will partake in the “Divine Nature {of the Almighty.” God’s spiritual supernatural DNA} – the very spiritual character of God. The following different translations of the same verse express this same thought.
2 Peter 1:4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises {some 37,000}, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. NIV
2 Peter 1:4 And by that same mighty power he has given us all the other rich and wonderful blessings he promised {some 37,000}; for instance, the promise to save us from the lust and rottenness all around us, and to give us his own {spiritual} character. TLB
2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new {spiritual} creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and {demonic} spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new {moral and spiritual condition} has come!” AMP

What “old” demonic spiritual stuff was replaced by what “fresh and new” Godly spiritual stuff? The Bible states that your old “spiritual condition” has passed away.
Colossians 3:8-10 But now you {as a new creation} must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. 9 Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices 10 and have put on the new {spiritual} self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the {spiritual} image of its Creator. NIV

What was the fresh and new spiritual condition that replaced your old spiritual nature? Does God have a way to impute to you His spiritual DNA? Does your new “STANDARD”/spiritual profile develop in you its imputed spiritual characteristics of God’s divine nature – His new characteristics that enable you to live your daily life as found in the “Fruit of the Spirit.”
2 Peter 1:4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. NKJV
1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world–the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the lust of the eyes [greedy longings of the mind] and the pride of life [assurance in one’s own resources or in the stability of earthly things]–these do not come from the Father but are from the world [itself]. AMP
2 Peter 1:5-11 Fruitful Growth in the Faith. But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, 6 to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, 7 to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. 8For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.
10 Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; 11 for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. NKJV
Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the {spiritual} work which His presence within accomplishes] is love {Agape – unconditional love for God and others}, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness, Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law [that can bring a charge]. AMP
Your new divine nature of the “Fruit of the Spirit” also has “works” which will be implemented and reflected in your life according to the Golden Rule and the Royal Law of Christ. The proper implementing of the “Fruit of the Spirit” will bring to fruition in your life a shield of faith that will extinguish all of the flaming darts of the enemy.
Luke 6:31 And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise. NKJV
Galatians 6:2 Bear (endure, carry) one another’s burdens and troublesome moral faults, and in this way fulfill and observe perfectly the law of Christ (the Messiah) and complete what is lacking [in your obedience to it]. AMP
James 2:8 If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well; NKJV
Matthew 22:37-40 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” NKJV
Ephesians 6:13, 16 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. NKJV

Not only are all truly “Born Again” Saints imputed with the SAME “STANDARD”/spiritual profile of God BUT we also partake of the SAME spiritual supernatural DNA! Can you see the spiritual supernatural development that is taking place within you? ALL of us truly “Born Again” Saints have the SAME spiritual supernatural “STANDARD” and the SAME spiritual supernatural DNA which gives us new spiritual supernatural characteristics that shapes the way we conduct and live our lives physically and spiritually in the world giving us a spiritual supernatural “ONENESS” with God and with each other within the Body of Christ that is beyond our comprehension.

As we continue with our new spiritual “STANDARD,” we will see something that is absolutely phenomenal in our relationship with God. As a new spiritual creation in Christ, we are immediately seated on the right hand of Christ Who is seated at the right hand of God the Father on His Throne. We have a new eternal “spiritual residence” in the Kingdom of God.
Ephesians 1:20 Which He {God the Father} exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His [own] right hand in the heavenly [places] {Kingdom of God}, AMP
Ephesians 2:6 And He {God the Father} raised us up together with Him {Jesus Christ} and made us sit down together [giving us joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere {Kingdom of God} [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed one). AMP
