Accepting and enjoying new life in Christ: Part 1

Advertisement

Dear beloved supernatural saints, good morning.

At first, I laughed at the people who called themselves born again Christians.

Yet, the word ‘born again’ came from the Lord Jesus and nobody else on earth.

At first, I thought it was coined by fanatics and heretics in my ignorance.

I was put to shame when I read from the Bible and saw that it was the Lord Jesus who wants all to be born again.

On this day around 30 AD, the Lord was addressing the church leader Nicodemus, a Pharisee, who had gone to meet the Lord in the night.

He thought all was well with him.

He was disappointed to hear that it was not well.

He could not make it to heaven at all unless he became born again in Christ Jesus and filled with the Holy Spirit. John 3.1-19

He was born with Adamic sin as we all were. Romans 3:23

The sin of Adam nobody would manage personally; to take it out but the Lord Jesus only. 1 Peter 2.24

“Jesus answered and said unto him, verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3 KJV

Without being born again in Christ Jesus, the sin of Adam remains, no matter how good you try to be.

What is this sin of Adam?

This includes pride, greed or selfishness and anger or negative emotions that are natural by birth.

You don’t teach a child to be proud, greedy or angry.

Now, when you receive and believe in the Lord Jesus, humility comes in, replacing pride.

Love, giving or selfless life comes in instead of greed and patience, endurance come in instead of anger.

You must ask yourself questions like: Did my heart change after receiving the Lord Jesus?

Am I truly born again or I still hold on to the heart of stone?

Then, the Lord wants you to be born of the Holy Spirit so that you get the heart transplant to receive the fruit of the Spirit.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” Gal 5:22-23 KJV

This makes God fulfill His word when He says: “Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.” Ezekiel 36:25-26 KJV

Corruption cannot cease if the hearts are not born of Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Without the fruit of the Spirit, corruption would be the norm of the day despite efforts to stop it.

Or else it could work by following the strictly new laws to curb it out of fear.

A nation that makes itself 80 per cent Christians would be free from corruption but the opposite is true.

Why? It is because few Christians are born again with a transformed heart.

“… if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV

In Christ, the drunkard and the thief die, the promiscuous dies, the witch dies, the satanic dies, the demons stop ruling and newness comes in.

Hallelujah! Are you truly born again?

Prayer: “Oh God grant me the shift now from old life and old heart into a new hearted person. I command all Adamic life to break and go as the Lord guide me from today. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.”

God bless your day as you seek and save the lost and make Jesus better known and loved.
