If any man be in Christ, he is a new creation, the old has passed away, all things have become new! Don’t question it, don’t doubt it. If we have become a new creature, then we have lost all ties to the old. People come to me and I have to tell them, if you have come to Christ, the past is forgiven, it’s dead. That’s what God says. But some people have been told that, because of their past, and also because of their parents and ancestors and what they have done in their past, they are not free. No! This is a lie.
When you come to Christ the WHOLE of the past is dead, gone. Whether you were a drug addict, an alcoholic, or whether in your family tree there was witchcraft or freemasonry – all that is gone! You are literally a new creation by faith in Christ. You do not have a tattered, battered old life, but a NEW life in Christ. By faith in Him, we become sons and daughters of God. It's a miracle!
