RENEWING THE OUTER MAN
2Corinthians 4:16 KJV: For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
2Corinthians 4:16 AMP: Therefore we do not become discouraged (utterly spiritless, exhausted, and wearied out through fear). Though our outer man is [progressively] decaying and wasting away, yet our inner self is being [progressively] renewed day after day.
Here the scripture tells us that though our outward man (i.e. the physical body) is perishing or is progressively aging and decaying, the inner man (the born-again human spirit and soul) is being DAILY renewed.
Now, why is the renewing of the inner man not causing the renewing of the outward man and how can this be done?
The inner man is being renewed by the daily inflow of the life of God into the man by fellowshipping with the Holy Spirit through the Word:
John 6:63 AMP: It is the Spirit Who gives life [He is the Life-giver]; the flesh conveys no benefit whatever [there is no profit in it]. The words (truths) that I have been speaking to you are spirit and life.
2Peter 1:4 NKJV: by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
It is the sin-nature in the physical body (Rom.8.10) that prevents this renewing of the outer man, BECAUSE the spiritual invisible forces of Satan from the air (Eph.2.2-3) impinging on the sin-nature DISTORT OUR GENETIC CONFIGURATION AND IMMUNE SYSTEM AT THE ATOMIC AND SUB-ATOMIC LEVELS!
Romans 8:10 AMP: And if Christ is in you, the body is [spiritually] dead because of sin, but the Spirit is [has access to] life because of righteousness [right standing by the cleansing of the blood of Jesus (1 Jn.1.9)].
So, to renew the outer-man, we MUST CLEANSE OUT THE SIN-NATURE BY REVERSING THE DISTORTION IN THE SIN-NATURE AND CONSEQUENTLY REVERSING THE DISTORTIONS IN THE GENETIC AND IMMUNE SYSTEMS AT THE ATOMIC AND SUB-ATOMIC LEVELS!
This is done by DAILY INJECTING the life of God into the physical body and neutralizing Satan’s power in the air by confession of God’s Word of promise to give eternal life into our physical bodies (2 Pet.1.4, 1 Jn. 2.25, 2 Cor.4.10-11) and praying in tongues and groanings.
1John 2:25 NKJV: And this is the promise that He has promised us—eternal life.
Romans 8:11 NKJV: But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
Romans 8:13 NKJV: For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
Romans 8:26 NKJV: In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.
2Corinthians 4:10 -11 NIV: We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. (11) For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body.
The power of the life of God IN THE AIR AND THE PHYSICAL BODY starts REVERSING THE DISTORTION IN THE SIN-NATURE AND SO RECONVERTS IT BACK TO THE DIVINE NATURE, which in turn reverses the distortions in the genetic and immune systems that cause our bodies to grow weaker and ultimately die physically.
Hence, instead of ageing and gradually dying, our youth is renewed like the eagles and we will experience youth renewal like Abraham, Sarah and Caleb did at the ages of 99, 90 (Rom.4.19-21) and 85 (Josh.14.10) respectively, fulfilling:
Psalms 103:5 NKJV: Who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Isaiah 40:31 NKJV: But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
This will give us DOMINION over physical death: so we will only die WHEN we and God are satisfied (Ps.91.16) and not by sickness, old age or Satanic affliction like the Lord Jesus:
John 10:17-18 NKJV: “Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. (18) No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.“
We also see Paul and Peter dying ONLY WHEN they and God decided it was time to die:
2Timothy 4:6-7 NKJV: For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand. (7) I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
2Peter 1:13-14 KJV: Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance; (14) Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me.
