Day 105 John 3:1-12

Thanksgiving: Thank the Lord for the Wind, for its mystery is like His Spirit! Thank The Lord for discernment, For even those who are teachers were still blind! Thank the Lord for a deep love, for the Thirsty shall never just tread the waters of the Spirit!

 

It is Written, “Now there was a Pharisee, a man named Nicodemus who was a member of the Jewish ruling council. He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the signs you are doing if God were not with him.” Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.” “How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!” Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” “How can this be?” Nicodemus asked. “You are Israel’s teacher,” said Jesus, “and do you not understand these things? Very truly I tell you, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony. I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things? John 3:1-12

 

Prayer: My Prayer Lord is that the revelation of the Spirit be revealed to those who are under name sake Banner!

 

Day 23 John 3:5-8

“Is Water Enough?”

“Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of Water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to Spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, “You must be born again.” The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”(John 3:5-8)

.

“Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of Water and the Spirit.” When speaking about John, Jesus said that he was the greatest man ever born from a woman. This by any means is a great honor for anyone to have bestowed upon them, But Jesus also said that John was the least of men who would come after him. So, you may ask how does someone who is the greatest of men ever born and then consider the least after him? For John Baptized by water for the forgiveness of sins, but Jesus; whose scandals John was not even fit to tie, came to baptize us in the Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit that is much greater than the water baptism. As for John, he was considered the least of men because he died prior to receiving that promise from Jesus. “Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to Spirit.” It is only by the Spirit that you will receive the Baptism of the Spirit.

“You should not be surprised at my saying, “You must be born again.” The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” Understand, to be truly born again, you must be baptizing in the Holy Spirit. There is truth and revelation that man can not receive unless he has been born again. Let’s not limit our thinking to believe that water is enough. If forgiveness of sins was all that we needed, then John would have been to the greatest of all men, but even he know that Jesus would come with another baptism. The light shall open your pathway to a greater understanding of God’s Word.
