RHAPSODY OF REALITIES TEEVO WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 19
(BEING A CHRISTIAN HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH RELIGION)
TO THE BIBLE
John 3:3 “Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
In the Garden of Eden, Adam sinned against God. From then on, darkness came into this world, and man became a stranger to and cut off from the light of God. Ever since, man has longed for a relationship with God, and he’s sought different ways to make it happen; it accounts for all the religions of the world. Religion is man seeking his own ways to contact or communicate with God. Sadly, man hasn’t and can’t find God in religion. Howbeit, God, in His mercy, sent Jesus to the world to reunite man to God; to let us know who He is, what He’s like and what He wants. Jesus Christ is the revelation of the Father’s will; He’s the Father’s love manifested; the expression of God’s personality, and the outshining of His glory
Now, Jesus came into the world with a new terminology, saying you must be “born again.” That’s where it all begins. For anyone to come into the light of God, have His life and nature, and become one with Him, he must be born again. To be born again means to receive Christ into your heart; it means to receive eternal life into your spirit. Eternal life is the nature of God. It’s different from the human life you were born with; it’s the incorruptible and indestructible life of God. It’s what makes us associates of the God-kind! When you’re born again, your spirit comes alive to God, and the Kingdom of God becomes real to you.
Being born again means you’re separated into a life of glory, triumph, success, prosperity, and a blessed assurance. The rudiments of this world no longer govern your life; you’ve been disconnected from the domain of darkness and transferred into the glorious liberty of the sons of God. This is beyond religion. Blessed be God!
John 3:5-7; 1 Peter 1:23
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for demonstrating your eternal love for mankind by sending Jesus Christ. Thank you for the precious salvation I have in Him. I’m a new creation in Christ Jesus, born with the nature of God in my spirit. I function in the higher, transcendent life in Christ, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Revelation 11:1-19, Daniel 1-2
Acts 1:12-26, 2 Chronicles 33
Today, you can get someone else born again. Just turn over to the “Prayer Of Salvation” on page 76, and guide them to say the words there from the bottom of their heart.
