How Do You See? -Rodna Epley

Believers in Christ have access to both the old and new natures. The old nature is blind and deaf. It sees darkly and its outpouring is negativity, sin, and death.

The new nature walks in the Spirit, in the light; it operates in glory. It sees light and its outpouring is everlasting life and words of reconciliation, which are words that restore people to the Father in Christ; they are words that restore us to glory.

1 Corinthians 15:45 Thus it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit.

John 6:33 For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.

The new nature is a life-giving spirit (1 Corinthians 15:45) and the words it speaks are Spirit and life (John 6:33). It is optimistic, confident, and courageous. It can see the way past a problem to the other side where it overcomes, where the glory of the Father is released through our words and works that match the Holy Spirit’s, turning every negative condition into light. This happens through speaking the promises of God that we received revelation on. These words cut with precision in a spiritual “laser light surgery” that refuses the evil and chooses the good, separating the precious from the vile, and bringing glory to the Father through a manifested work by His Word that came to pass.

“But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says: “Wake up O sleeper, arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” (Ephesians 5:13-14)

“Curds and honey He shall eat, that He may know to refuse the evil and choose the good.” (Isaiah 7:15)

“For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12)

“Therefore thus says the LORD: “If you return, Then I will bring you back; You shall stand before Me; If you take out (separate) the precious from the vile, You shall be as My mouth. Let them return to you, But you must not return to them.” (Jeremiah 15:19)
