Could being born again mean that we must go back with the Holy Spirit into our past even to the moment of birth----so that we can be healed of all that has come into our life that has kept us unable to really walk in the Presence of God? The flesh or human emotions will want us to protect ourselves from hurt and pain and we will wall our hearts up to prevent our heart or body from being wounded again. To help us be set free from FEAR that keeps us from walking in FAITH---Only the Holy Spirit and His Gifts can take us back to being born, rebirthed, renewed, and HEALED so we can WALK with our Lord.
That crippled man of 38 years at the Pool of Bethsaida ---what was really crippling him? What really crippled the Israelites on their way to the Promised Land? Why are there so many living in addiction that destroy their lives or the temple of God they live in? Are you beginning to see how important it is that everyone MUST be ‘born again’ by the healing power of the Holy Spirit? It is He, Who comes with His gifts of ‘Faith, Hope, Love, Understanding, Knowledge, Wisdom, and Discernment that leads us to the deep realization of just WHO the I AM is! The I AM that Comes with His Peace and Presence within---when the human ‘I am’ comes to know they are LOVED!! Not only loved, but by His perfect Design, in His Hands, we are called and chosen; and very carefully created, molded and shaped over the years and made into His Vessel. By Flesh we became human---by the Holy Spirit we become to know “I AM—a child of God!”
Jesus tells us also we have to become as a child----- to truly enter into the kingdom. We must become the Father’s Child who has to unlearn that human adult behavior that was passed down from Adam.
What is to be the process that we must take to be a child, His child again? Could this be the reason why He said we have to leave parents and family, or cut off the arm, or parts (memories) that causes us to sin? We have to see how much we have been affected by what we were taught over the years. Either by our parents and teachers words, or their behavior---and then later what others would say or do that would influence our life deeply down to the core of our being. Some of us are very wounded--and we don't know WHY!
To know the I AM ---to be born again, to be a child ----first we have to come into a deep understanding of just who I am and how I came to be “ME”.
Why did God lead me to be so fixated on being “Born Again?” Well honey, no sooner did I start to write that new book on how God speaks to us---I became overwhelmed at times with so MANY emotions, so strong that some could say these were an “attack” to oppress and distract.
Thanks to the gift of Discernment, I was led to LOOK at just what emotions were there and where they came from –from the PAST. In order for God to use ME in the FUTURE-- the present and the past had to be ‘birthed again.” It was time for more labor and delivery to bring forth more children into the Kingdom of God and the fulfillment of His plans for their lives. That is what He is calling us all to do--“Bring Jesus into this world—by letting the Holy Spirit be alive in you!”
Working with the Holy Spirit and seeking the help I needed to be renewed, and born again to peace and joy---I was led to look at the baby’s spirit and behavior. Contented, trusting, smiling when smiled upon, excited when experiencing new wonders, and no one ugly emotion YET influencing the child’s life. As the baby grows it seeks the parents' care and love, and the child looks and TRUSTS the parent to care for it.
The more I thought of how a baby acts, a toddler acts and the child up to the age of reason acts—the more I saw what Jesus meant about being born again and entering into the kingdom as a child.
We are told to turn away from the things of the world, and false idols too. So much of what the world offers, and teaches us AS the thing to do---IS NOT OF GOD’s Plan for our life. We cannot live for and in the world for there we are dead. God is asking us to be born again of the Spirit---so that we may live forever---fully alive NOW and for ALL ETERNITY!!!
So dearest children of the Lord God our Father----
“Pray, breathe, slow down Child, focus on Me so that I may help you SEE and Do what I want you to do. Do not get ahead of ME. Take My hand and hold on tight child as we go.”
