1 CHART OF THE SEVEN MEN AND THE TWO NATURES THE Secret OF VICTORY OVER SATAN AND POWER WITH GOD By David F. Gray 1957 (Compiled from the original printed material by Stan Hallett)

2 Oftentimes young Christians become discouraged when they discover that even tho they have received the Holy Ghost, they are still tempted and prone to fail along certain lines. They had thought that they would never be tempted again! As a result the devil puts doubts in their minds as to whether they are really saved. Questions fill their minds such as: Why am I battling all the time against sin and the world? Am I really saved? Is so, why do these temptations keep coming? Maybe I didn t really get the Holy Ghost. If I did, why do I have all these temptations and desires? THE REASON THEY ARE DISCOURAGED IS BECAUSE THEY FAIL TO SEE THAT THEY NOW HAVE TWO NATURES TO DEAL WITH. FIGHTING FOR POSSESSION OF THE SAME BODY. Galatians 5:16.17 This study will help us to understand what happens when we are saved, and how to OVERCOME so that we will be ready when Jesus comes for His Bride. Let us start our study by looking at the SINNER. In Scriptures he is called the ---

3 NATURAL MAN Galatians 5:19-21 Ephesians 2:1-3, 12 1 Corinthians 2:14 Ephesians 4:18 John 3:5,6 Genesis 5:3 Jeremiah 17:9 Mark 7:21-23 Matthew 12:33-37 WE ARE ALL NATURALLY LIKE THIS But when the NATURAL MAN turns to God, repents, and is baptized in Jesusʼ Name, he loses his sin and becomes a---

4 REPENTED MAN Matthew 1:21 Luke 13:1-3 Acts 17:30 2 Peter 3:9 Proverbs 28:13 Romans 2:4 Luke 24:47 Acts 2:38 1 Corinthians 10:1-2 Colossians 2:8-13 Ezekiel 18:20-23, BRANCHES OF SIN WILL SOON REAPPEAR IF HE DOES NO GO ON TO RECEIVE THE HOLY GHOST. Matthew 12:43-45 Romans 7:15, But when he receives the gift of the Holy Ghost he truly becomes a---

5 BORN AGAIN MAN John 3:3-5 John 7:37-39 Herein is comprehended the Gospel GODʼS PLAN. He is the Author of Salvation. Romans 1:16 Colossians 3:10 1 John 3:9 The NEW NATURE graft in is the Nature of our Lord Jesus Christ. Colossians 1:27. 3:9,10, 1 John 3:9 This is what we receive in the Holy Ghost. Romans 14:17 Ephesians 4:22-24 Acts 1:8 2 Corinthians 5:17 THEREFORE, THE BORN AGAIN MAN HAS TWO NATURES, THE NATURAL (shown by the trunk of the tree), AND THE SPIRITUAL (shown by the engrafted New Nature).

6 NOW EVERY BORN AGAIN MAN HAS A CHOICE Galatians 5:17 Romans 8:12-13 Romans 6:16-19 CHOICE NO. 1 HE CAN LIVE IN THE OLD NATURE, AFTER THE FLESH AND BECOME A---

7 CARNAL MAN 1 Corinthians 3:1-4 Hebrews 5:11-14 Romans 8:5-8 THE CARNAL MAN HAS DROPPED RIGHT BACK INTO THE OLD LIFE HE LIVED BEFORE HE WAS SAVED. HE IS LIVING ACCORDING TO THE DESIRES OF THE FLESH, THE OLD NATURE. Eventually the engrafted NEW NATURE will be smothered out and die, and will become a---

8 REPROBATE MAN 2 Corinthians 13:5 Romans 1:21, Peter 2: Thessalonians 2:10-12 Romans 8:13 1 John 5:16 Ephesians 4:19 THIS IS THE UNPARDONABLE SIN Hebrews 10:26-29 Genesis 6:3 Hebrews 6:4-8 Proverbs 29:1 Matthew 15:11-14 THIS MAN IS DOOMED!

9 BUT THE BORN AGAIN MAN HAS ANOTHER CHOICE Galatians 5:16-17 Romans 8:12-14 CHOICE NO. 2 HE CAN LIVE IN THE NEW NATURE, IN THE SPIRIT, AND BECOME AN---

10 OVERCOMING MAN Colossians 3:5-10 Romans Peter 2:2 Matthew 18:8-9 Hebrews 12:1 Romans 6:11-19 Luke 21: Corinthians 9:26-27 Ephesians 4:22-24 The OVERCOMING MAN crucifies the flesh with its affections and lusts, and by the Sword of the Spirit, the Word of God, cuts off those branches of carnality, which would sap the life of the tree and destroy its spirituality. This pruning process must continue or the sucker growths of the Old Nature will sprout out when least expected. The NEW NATURE will now grow, and he will become a---

11 SPIRITUAL MAN John 15:4-8 Psalms 1:1-3 Acts 1:8 Jeremiah 17:8 1 Corinthians 2:9-16 Ephesians 5:18 1 John 4:4 Ephesians 3:20 Hebrews 5:13-14 Hebrews 6:1-3 The truly SPIRITUAL MAN is constantly pressing onward, never feeling that he has already attained, but always aware of his own need of vigilance. He is continually seeking God for more of Godʼs Spirit to fill his life, and thus brings much fruit to perfection.

12 Now we see why so many fail. They do not know how to deal with the TWO NATURES WE ALSO KNOW THE SECRET OF VICTORY THIS I SAY THEN, WALK IN THE SPIRIT, AND YE SHALL NOT FULFILL THE LUST OF THE FLESH. ---Galatians 5:16 WHERE ART THOU?
