Romans 6:4 “We were buried therefore with him through baptism unto death: that like as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we also might walk in newness of life.”
Some interesting definitions of the word new include; recently discovered or noticed, though existing before; not yet used by anyone else; recently made, created, or invented; not seen, known, or experienced by somebody before and thus unfamiliar; changed, especially for the better; constituting a revived, different, improved, or more advanced form of something; recently produced by change; as a new life; renovated; repaired so as to recover the first state; different state or qualities introduced by change or regeneration.
And the Lord says, I Am He who brings the dead back to life and who creates new things out of nothing. I Am announcing the new thing to you once again even while you have not yet seen the physical manifestation. This new thing of which I now speak is unlike anything you have ever heard or seen in seasons past. My child you have now come out of the place of transition and you have been crossed over into the new. It is only by My Almighty hand that this new thing now springs forth. I say to you that the former things shall not be remembered, neither shall you bring them to mind because it is time to press forward; beloved it is a time of advancing. The enemy of your soul would love to hold you in bondage to fear and doubt, but I say to you in faith, take a step forward into the newness of the new. You will know and experience Me like never before. Have I not declared that because you are hid in My Beloved Son that you are an entirely new creation? By His blood He has washed away your sins, giving you a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. Therefore, you must now yield to this truth and receive the fullness of His resurrection power which lifts you out from among the dead in spirit and firmly plants you into the fullness of the newness of life through My Life-giving Spirit. And beloved if the new has come then surely you perceive that the old has passed. The new and the old cannot operate at the same time. If you should seek to continue in the lukewarmness between the two you will be overcome with doubt and fear and remain stagnate in the place of transition. You must now focus on the newness of the new that is ahead. In order to fully embrace the new you must let go of the old press and beyond the place of transition. Your place of transition is not your place of destination; it was designed as a vehicle in the process of change used by Me in a season of pruning and preparation for the promise. Beloved I have called you to be one of the chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation and My own special people. I have done this so that you can be a declaration of My praise in the earth. You are now the people of God Almighty and I say to you today this brand new thing of which I now speak shall be fulfilled, therefore I command you now, walk in the newness of the new.
Revelation 21:5 "And He Who is seated on the throne said, See! I make all things new. Also He said, Record this, for these sayings are faithful (accurate, incorruptible, and trustworthy) and true (genuine)."
