We Know No One After the Flesh


 
 

2 Corinthians 5:16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.

Every member of the Body of Christ is a ministry and has a ministry. The ministry is not the person after the flesh, but it is the Christ in the person. To reject a member of the Body of Christ is to reject Christ.

When there is division in the Church, the members are obeying their own fleshly nature rather than Christ. It is sin to fail to discern the Body of Christ. (1Cor 11:29)

Some say that they are in God's will, but they follow a man, an organization, a personality. Some even say they following Christ and will obey no one who has been set by God to oversee the Church. They are not discerning the ministries and offices that God has set in the Church. (1Cor 1:12)

No one can follow Christ without discerning Him in His Body.

So complete is this discernment of Christ that we don't even see our sinful nature as part of ourselves. We don't see the sinful nature of other members of the Body of Christ as part of themselves. If we identify with the sinful nature, we will walk according to the sinful nature. If we see Christ and acknowledge Him, we become like Him and the flesh dies. Note how Paul speaks of the sin that dwells in Him, seeing the reality that he is not that sinful nature.

Romans 7:16-20If then I do that which I would not, I consent to the law that itis good. Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.[Note: this is not a cop out. As a Christian, you are to identify with the Christ Who lives in you rather than your fleshly nature. The Christ Who is in you cannot sin. (1 Jn. 3:4-11) Your fleshly nature cannot be reformed because it cannot do or think what is right.] For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. [see how completely Paul asks us to deny our self and identify with Christ.]

We fully admit that sin dwells in us. We have not fully walked into God's holiness. It's just that you are not the sinful nature if Christ dwells in you. You are the spiritual man, the Christ, Who cannot sin. Your sinful nature can do nothing right. It can't help but sin. Its righteousness is like a filthy, filthy rag. But that is not you in reality. It is so important that you see reality and not listen to the lies of the accuser. You are a son of God, and if You walk into the completeness of holiness, you will rule and reign with Christ.
