  1. Christ died for us and we died with Him. Rom 6:2-7; 2 Cor 15:14-15.
  2. We died and rose into a new position, a new environment and became part of the new creation. 2 Cor 5:17.  We are seated with Christ in heavenly places.  Eph 2:6.
  3. Having arrived at our new position we still need to be saved, sanctified and transformed from our old selves into a new man or new creation person.Example of man who has moved from Cuba to America and been given a house, a drivers license and money in the bank, he still does not understand American law, language, culture, or how to live as an American, not anymore as a Cuban.  He must go thru some things to come to a new way of thinking that is totally foreign to him.
  4. Experientially we must die and rise with Christ daily and also be daily born again into a renewed mind. Thru suffering, daily repentance and contrition, must put off the old man and nature and put on the new man or new nature.  Eph 4:22-24; Gal 2:20; Luke 9:23-25; 1 Cor 15:31.
  5. Suffering is brought to us by Satan.God does not ever directly cause suffering but He uses the suffering directly caused by Satan.  He uses it always for a good purpose, like cleansing, pruning, sanctification and transformation.  The cross is the key to all mysteries.  God did not cause His Son to suffer and die.  Satan did.  But God used Satan’s own actions to defeat Satan.  Satan always defeats himself.  God wins battles by indirect, not direct, power.  Satan is thus caught in his own snare, he is taken in his own craftiness and falls into the pit that he digs.  Satan brings the fire of God’s wrath, a fire which destroys the unbeliever but saves the believer.  1 Cor 3:12-17 @v15.
