A SHEEP IN WOLVES CLOTHING

( DOCTRINE OF THE TWO-FOLD NATURE OF MAN)

TEXT: ROM. 8:1-14

INTRO: *************** READ TEXT **************************

HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE HEARD THAT SAYING OR PHRASE " A WOLF IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING"?

TODAY, WE ARE GOING TO BE DEALING WITH THE EXACT OPPOSITE AS THE TITLE SUGGESTS.

THIS IS IN REFERENCE TO THE MOST MISUNDERSTOOD TRUTH THAT THE BIBLE TEACHES, THE TWO-FOLD NATURE OF THE CHILD OF GOD.

SO MANY CHURCHES TODAY DON'T BELIEVE IN OR PREACH THE TWO FOLD NATURE OF THE BELIEVER AND THAT IS A SHAME BECAUSE, TWO REASONS,..........

1.) THE BIBLE CLEARLY TEACHES IT .............

2.) AND BECAUSE ALOT OF DOCTRINAL TRUTHS HINGE OFF OF THIS BELIEF.

WHEN MISINTERPRETED, THIS DOCTRINE CAN BE VERY DAMAGING TO PURITY OF THE TRUTHS AND DOCTRINES OF THE BIBLE.

JUST TO GIVE YOU ONE EXAMPLE OF MANY,THIS DOCTRINE EFFECTS THE TRUTH OF THE SECURITY OF THE BELIEVER.

ALL THE REST OF THE WORLD TEACHES THAT I MUST WORK FOR OR MERIT THE SALVATION GIVEN BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST AND I MUST CONTINUE SINLESSLY WORKING TO KEEP IT.

BROTHERS AND SISTERS, MY BIBLE TELLS ME THAT THOSE WHO PREACH AND TEACH THIS ARE BLIND TO THE REAL TRUTH THAT MAN IS BORN TOTALLY DEPRAVED AND SEPARATED FROM GOD AND THAT NO MATTER HOW GOOD THEY ARE OR ACT, THEY ARE NOT OR NEVER CAN BE GOOD ENOUGH TO MERIT SALVATION OR EARN IT NOR ARE THEY GOOD ENOUGH OR STRONG ENOUGH TO KEEP IT.

THE BIBLE TEACHES ME THAT MAN IS A TRIUNE BEING CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF GOD.

MEANING MAN CONSISTS OF THREE MAIN PARTS JUST AS GOD, ....BODY, SOUL, AND SPIRIT.

AND THAT MAN, THE EXPRESS IMAGE OF GOD, HAS A CURSE ON IT THAT CAME IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN THAT SEPARATES HIM FROM GOD, BODY, SOUL, AND SPIRIT.

BUT WHAT THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN BLINDED BY SATAN CANNOT SEE IS THE FACT THAT ONCE A PERSON IS SAVED BY THE FREE GIFT JESUS OFFERS, HE STILL RETAINS THAT SINFUL PART THAT IS NOT SAVED OR MADE WHOLE.

SO WHAT PART OF MAN IS SAVED AFTER CONVERSION? **** THE SPIRIT!! *****

THE MIND IS STILL CORRUPT AND THE BODY IS STILL CORRUPT, THE SPIRIT IS THE ONLY THING THAT THAT GOD IS INTERESTED IN AT THE TIME.

THE SOUL, OR MIND, IS TO BE REDEEMED DAY BY DAY, BY THE GROWTH IN GRACE.

Rom 12:1-2

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

(KJV)

AND THE BODY WILL NOT BE REDEEMED FROM THE CONSEQUENCES OF SIN UNTIL THE RESURRECTION OF THE BODY OR THE CHANGE IN A TWINKLING OF AN EYE.

TO PUT IT IN SHORT.......

--------- THE UNSAVED MAN HAS ONE NATURE....SINFUL AND CORRUPT.

--------- THE SAVED MAN HAS TWO NATURES .... THE SINFUL RETAINED AND THE NEW NATURE BEGOTTEN OF GOD.

LET'S LOOK A LITTLE DEEPER INTO THE TWO-FOLD NATURE OF MAN OR " A SHEEP IN WOLVES' CLOTHING".

I. THE NATURAL MAN AND THE SPIRITUAL MAN CONTRASTED..................

A.) DEFINTIOINS OF TWO TERMS...
