DEATH THREATS
Ro. 6:1-4/1 Co. 15:45-49/Col. 3:9-10

Kurt Nordin, of Falun, Sweden opened the morning mail. There wasn’t much to see except life insurance advertisements, monthly telephone and light bills, and a postcard from a friend vacationing in South America.

Then he saw another letter that made him turn pale. It was written on pink-colored paper and read "I’m going to kill you." It was signed Jackie. This death threat had been repeated several times in the past three months. Kurt began to dread the mail.

Finally he advised the police, showing them all of the letters. The police, investigating the case, discovered the truth. The death-threats came from Kurt himself. Kurt Norbin had a split personality.

A number of people suffer the psychological abnormality of two personalities. In some cases, the condition is so serious that one personality is unaware of the existence of the other. Other cases are less severe, although all of them represent grave situations.

We may not have split personalities, but all of us are made human, and within us dwells two powers that battle constantly against one another. Holy Scripture calls this the "old man" and the "new man" or the "carnal man" and the "spiritual man."

The Apostle Paul deals with this theme skillfully in 1 Cor. 15:45 which says "The first man Adam became a living being, the last Adam, a life giving spirit." From Adam’s fall we inherit, besides our human personalities, the tendency to transgress the laws of God. From Christ we glean healthy virtues, and learn obedience to God's laws, elevating our lives above human degradations and depravations.

When we understand that within us dwells the fallen Adamic nature, but that when we renounced the old life and received Christ as Lord and Savior, we reverted to what God intended us to be when He created us. Eradicating the sinful nature within us is the work of the Holy Spirit and it is a life-changing process known as sanctification. It refers to being dedicated, consecrated and set apart for the Almighty, which is what God meant for us to be from the very beginning.

Only Christ can redeem us from Adam's destructive nature. Total regeneration begins when we take on the person of Jesus Christ, and sanctification continues the process as long as we live.
