Born Again

Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3

Are you Born Again? What?  Many people call themselves “Christians” but Jesus said unless you are “Born Again” you will not see the Kingdom of God, so what does “Born Again” mean?

but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.” Genesis 2:17

First, we must understand that we are sinners, meaning we “rebelled against God”, Adam and Eve decided to disobey God and listen to Satan, which allowed sin and death to enter the world. The curse of sin and death was inherited down to us all

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23

We are all Sinners, and the penalty for our Sin is death. You may say “Well I’m a Good Person” , have your ever told a lie? Have you ever stolen anything? Have you ever used Gods name in vein? Yes these are all sins and we are guilty of sin. We have broken the Ten Commandments (Gods Law)

And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone. Mark 10:18

Jesus himself said that NOBODY is Good except God alone, this is why we need a Savior! Thankfully God has sent us a Savior!

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45

BUT There is good news (Gospel) because of Gods love and mercy, he became a man (Jesus Christ) and took the penalty for our sins at the cross. Through Jesus Christ you can be redeemed for your sins and inherit eternal life. So what do you have to do?

Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:38

Repent meaning “Turn away from your sin” Be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ and you become “Born Again” meaning filled with the Holy Spirit.

for “WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.” Romans 10:13

So who can receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior? Everyone! You also can be saved through Jesus Christ

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16

Even though we are sinners Christ died for us so we can inherit eternal life, this is true love. If your not sure where to start with your relationship with God, just say this prayer below

Heavenly Father, I am a sinner, please forgive me for my sins, I confess that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior, give me a new heart and spirit in Jesus Name Amen!

You Are Mine!

But now, thus says the LORD, your Creator, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine! Isaiah 43:1

Have you felt lost and alone in this world? Well think about this the Creator of the Heavens and Earth, your Creator, who formed you. He has called you by name and declares you are his! Its that an amazing thought?

Most religions are very impersonal, where God is far away or unapproachable, however Christianity is totally the opposite. Our God is calling us by name to come closer to him! Now you might say “This is not a Christian scripture”! Wrong, the entire Old Testament is about the coming of Jesus Christ, to bring us closer to God

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. John 14:6

God is calling you home and wants a personal relationship with You. However we cant get to God because we separated because of our sin! However we can come to the Father God through his only begotten Son Jesus Christ

Come running back like the prodigal Son or Daughter, your Father, your Creator is calling you by name and declaring Your are Mine in Jesus Name Amen!

Cleanse The Temple

and to those who were selling the doves He said, “Take these things away; stop making My Father’s house a place of business.” John 2:16

Before the Passover Jesus went to the temple and cleansed it from the evil that was being performed there. Instead of people coming to the Temple to worship God and offer a sacrifice for their sins, they were making a profit in Gods name. Today we see this all throughout Christianity. People are making millions of dollars in the name of Jesus with no real motive to serve or worship God. Its time to “Cleanse the Temple”!

And He made a scourge of cords, and drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen; and He poured out the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables; John 2:15

Jesus didn’t go to the temple and ask them would you please stop blaspheming Gods name. Jesus went in and took care of business, many try to portray Jesus as some hippy who just traveled around giving hugs. No Jesus came for justice and righteousness, evil won’t be tolerated in Gods Kingdom

Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 1 Corinthians 3:16

Just as Jesus was cleansing Gods temple for Passover, its time for us to cleansing our Temples (us) for Christs return! Get rid of any sin or immoral behavior, Jesus is coming again and hes not going to apologize!

Christian Churches you need to “Cleanse your Temples” also, get rid of any blasphemy or evil that has invaded the Church, Judgement is coming! If you know its wrong, call it out! Cleanse your Temple in Jesus Name Amen!

New Things

“Behold, the former things have come to pass, Now I declare new things; Before they spring forth I proclaim them to you.” Isaiah 42:9

We always have Hope, because of Jesus Christ! Currently this world looks dreadful. There is a lot of suffering and death. However these “Former Things” will come to pass! God is making all things new through his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ

Sing to the LORD a new song, Sing His praise from the end of the earth! You who go down to the sea, and all that is in it. You islands, and those who dwell on them. Isaiah 42:10

It goes on to say “Sing to God a New Song” meaning this is no reason to dwell or complain about your current condition. This world is broken and evil, this is why we need a Savior! However if you truly believe and trust in Christ, Sing a New Song! Not a song of worry and defeat because Christ has overcome the world

 

And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” Revelation 21:5

Jesus confirms He is making all things New! Just as God promised with the New Heaven and Earth, where there will be no more mourning, pain, or death. God is making all things new because the former things have passed away! God is declaring New Things in Jesus Name Amen!
