In James chapter 4 it talks about submitting to God and resisting the devil. For us to be effective in causing the devil to flee We must first submit to God. This is done by getting closer to God and he in turn gets close to us. We do this by cleansing our hands, purifying our hearts and becoming single-minded on the purpose of being with God. Sin is the beginning of the gospel, it's not the End.
In John chapter 3 Nicodemus is talking with Jesus and Jesus makes the statement unless you are born again you cannot see the kingdom of God. Salvation and being born again is a miracle; it's something we cannot do on our own. It requires God and the work that Jesus did in giving his life.
I want to be born again each and every day so that I might be able to see the kingdom of God.
Our spirit must be renewed that we can see past the flesh and into the realm that God operates.
In Mark Jesus gave the disciples the great commission and he told him that these signs shall follow them that believe One of those was speaking in tongues. Which has been one of the most missed, used and faked demonstrations of religious ability. The new tongue I believe that God is speaking of is declaring the wonderful works of God instead of I did this...
This requires being born again so that we can see the kingdom of God and to declare it and speak it so that it might be made manifest in this earth.
Peter in the book of Acts chapter 9 through his obedience he brought healing to a man who had been paralyzed for 8 years; this caused all of the inhabitants of Lydia and Sharon to turn to the Lord.
Peter was a believer. I desire two to be a believer with signs following this requires being born again so that I can see the kingdom of God and declare it on this earth as it is in heaven.
What are the signs that God has declared, follows a believer?
Is being a believer with signs following possible in your life?
What does being born again mean to you now?
What was the living word that came alive to you in this message?
