One Must Be Born Again
“There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: 2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. 3 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. 4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. 8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.” John 3:1-8 (KJV)
We are living in crucial times and sin is abounding. Where sin can continue to abound, people begin to throw off restraints. What has happened to the prophetic vision and the prophetic voices? The eyes and the mouthpieces that God has placed in the earth for such a time as this. Today prophetic voices are going to their grave without leaving the Body of Christ prophetic instructions for this time and season we are living in. We need to know what we must do. The earth is sinning and Christians are getting caught up in the politics and the drama of the earth and have stopped preaching truth because the price is too big to pay.
We have become a people who have gotten caught up in titles and positions and we have forgotten how to die daily. If we do not die we will not live.
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.”John 12:24 (KJV)
Today we see in Scripture that Jesus tells Nicodemus that he must be born again. What does being born-again really mean? Jesus makes it clear:
“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
“Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” John 3:5-6 KJV
To be born again you must allow your flesh to die and not to get in the way. When you are born again you become a new creature in Christ and old things have passed away, and a new life is awaiting you. A life filled with unspeakable joy, miracles, and great triumphs.
I do realize that no one wants to die to their flesh (mind, will and emotions) but to be able to see, we must call our flesh to submit to the will of God. We must allow the Spirit to birth in us the newness that Christ has promised.
Today, let’s look at some Scriptures that will bring us to self-examination.
“If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.” 1 John 2:29 (KJV)
“Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.” 1 John 3:9 (KJV)
“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.” 1 John 4:7 (KJV)
“Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. 2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.” 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. 4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” 1 John 5:1-4 (KJV)
“We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.” 1 John 5:18 (KJV)
I am sure after reading these Sciptures we can understand the importance of being born again. If you are struggling put the old you to sleep (death in the spirit) and allow the new you to have a chance to grow and develop into who God has destined for you.
Allow yourself space to examine yourself and repent and make a decision for God. Look at yourself in the mirror. See the inward you and begin to allow the Holy Spirit to deal with those things you don’t want to see or hear. It looking at this you might come to understand that you are not where you may think you are in God or where you desire to be in your relationship with God.
Do not allow yourself to avoid these issues that you see or others may have shared with you about you. Be truthful with yourself and watch the Holy Spirit begin to work inside of you. Allow the Spirit of God to show you what’s up in your heart and allow him to create in you a clean heart and renew the right spirit within you. Remember, we must be born again if we want to be able to see the kingdom of God.
Today write your prayer to God what you need help with.

Create A New Memorial
Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, he will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build: but ye have no portion, nor right, nor memorial, in Jerusalem. Nehemiah 2:20 (KJV)
One thing about our past experiences negative or positive is that they will create memorials deep down on the inside without any notice. You are not even aware that they have been created until something present causes a response or reflection of your past.
When circumstances and situations have happened in our life they begin to build memories. When memories are birthed they take up space and have a portion of us. This can be a good thing or a bad thing. When we allow anything opposite of God’s will for our lives to build a memorial down on the inside of us the memorial will grow by what we feed it subconsciously or consciously.
Unfortunately, when this occurs we can be forced back in time to a place of bondage, wounding, rejections, abuse and etc. This will then cause our emotions and thoughts to feed our response. One must be willing to rehearse what God says about them regardless of the situations or the circumstances. I choose to believe what God says about me. I make a conscious decision to rehearse what God says about me daily and cause my emotions to line up to His will.
One thing that comes to memory is the story about Nehemiah and Sanballat, Tobiah and Geshem.
Nehemiah 2:18-20 (KJV)
18 Then I told them of the hand of my God which was good upon me; as also the king’s words that he had spoken unto me. And they said, Let us rise up and build. So they strengthened their hands for this good work.
19 But when Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, and Geshem the Arabian, heard it, they laughed us to scorn, and despised us, and said, What is this thing that ye do? will ye rebel against the king?
20 Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, he will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build: but ye have no portion, nor right, nor memorial, in Jerusalem.
Nehemiah was persistent in letting them know that they will not be remembered here in Jerusalem. You must know what is your Jerusalem and what you want to be remembered and celebrated. Therefore, with no memorial, portion or right their behavior and their language against them cannot stand. Putting things in their proper place and dislodging something before it happens fortifies your being in the spirit. From the beginning letting a thought, word or deed know that you are not worth my attention. Then refocus yourself on the assignment that is ahead of you. Do not allow your flesh to get distracted.
Can someone say wow! This is a lot harder than it appears to be easier. But if you practice it – it will work. Do not allow your flesh to run off with an issue that was nailed to the cross. Have a visual. The next time you hear something or something tries to regurgitate itself up on you SEE THE CROSS.
This is a great part of walking in the spirit.
Galatians 5:16-26 (KJV)
16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
Therefore, strive to walk in the spirit by renewing your mind and killing your flesh.
Today spend some time destroy memorials that have damaged you. Begin to create a new memorial on the things that God has spoken about you. Then celebrate with praise!
Knowing Your Purpose
“Excerpts from the Prize Fight”

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, and that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:2
Many people go through life trying to find their purpose. They look in many arenas trying to find one’s purpose. However, true purpose can only be found in Christ Jesus who is the Head all. Only God can give you the meaning of purpose. The world will never actually be able to define what your true purpose and your true calling is.
As saints of God when we do not know who we are, and why God created us a demonic door has the potential of opening up and giving the enemy access to us. We then have the potential of becoming dangerous to ourselves and to others. When I say a demonic door I am talking about a door that we opened and Satan walked right in. Every decision that we make must be based on the Word. We cannot and must not get caught up in our emotions and allow the enemy legal access to us. Without God there is no way of knowing your true purpose.
The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way. Psalm 37:23 – KJV
Making new decisions and moving into new directions can be one of the hardest things one must do. When it’s time for you to move into your purpose and your new now some things that are presently connected to you one must begin to release and let go. You cannot take an old mentality that refuses to embrace your assignment into the new place that God has pronounced prophetically to you and over you. Just like you can’t put new wine into old wineskins.
Take a moment and take a deep new breath. That is a breath you never breath before and you are still here. It did not kill you. You are still standing, and God is still with you. He will guide and direct you into all truth. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He has already gone before you and has paved the way.
Today embrace the new, and let go of the old and step into that place you have never stepped in before. Say no to fear and GO FOR IT! Believe that this new journey is the beginning of something wonderful not only for you but for all those that God will allow you to touch their lives in a new profound way.
Don’t be afraid, God has you covered!

Then said Solomon, The Lord hath said that he would
dwell in the thick darkness. 2 Chronicles 6:1 (KJV)
2 Chronicles 5:13-14 (KJV)
13 It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the Lord, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the Lord;
14 So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God.
2 Chronicles 6:1-3 (KJV)
6 Then said Solomon, The Lord hath said that he would dwell in the thick darkness.
2 But I have built an house of habitation for thee, and a place for thy dwelling for ever.
3 And the king turned his face, and blessed the whole congregation of Israel: and all the congregation of Israel stood.
When we hearken to the voice of the Lord and keep His commands He will always exceed our expectations. We serve a God, who is faithful, and He is faithful to fulfill all His promises that He has spoken over, in and through us.
When the true presence of God comes in the room, it will stop all activity. His presence bombarded them to the point that the priest could not stand to minister. Know that has not changed; when God comes in the room and fills it with His glory; God begins to minister and OUR posture changes to WORSHIP. When the Lord shows up, know He has come to make good on His Word or to release divine instructions.
Know that He says that He would dwell in the thick darkness. Today ask yourself have you truly experienced the darkness of His presence. The place of hiddenness, the place where glory is not covered up or masked. It’s the place where eyes become opened, and we begin to see Him in all of His Majesty.
Because He dwells in darkness know He has the power to penetrate every realm of darkness. He created darkness. Therefore, God is not afraid to come into your darkness to rescue you and bring you out of all your fears.
Today let’s ask God for the real manifestation of His glory that will cause men to stop and experience the magnificence of HIS presence.
