*____Here are some facts connected with this New Creation, some of the new things that come to
man through the recreation of his spirit.
____2 Cor. 5:21 "Him who knew no sin, God made to become sin; that we might become the righteousness of God in Christ."
was the Spirit of Christ that was made sin. It is the spirit of man that is righteous with His Righteousness. This new Righteousness that is imparted to the human spirit gives to the human spirit a sense of freedom and liberty with God that man has not had
since the fall. It takes away from man's spirit the sin consciousness that has held him in slavery through the ages.
____Sin consciousness is not of the reasoning faculties. It does not come to
us through the five senses. Sin consciousness; or conviction of sin, comes from the human spirit. It comes because the natural human spirit is not in fellowship with God. The New Birth has recreated this human spirit and imparted to it the Righteousness and

____John 5:24 "He that heareth my word, and believeth him that sent me, has eternal life."
____This is a new kind of life; it does not come to the reasoning faculties, but only to the human spirit. This life is God's nature.
____Romans 5:5 declares

with the Father. This new kind of love is not a thing of reason. It is a thing of the spirit consciousness.
