YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN


Born again
Preached BY APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENATHE SON OF MAN THE KINSMAN REDEEMER AT THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD, ONITSHA ON
SUNDAY, 27TH JANUARY 2019

“ONLY THOSE WHO HAVE ALREADYMADE THEIR MIND THAT THEY WILL DWELL WITH GOD ETERNALLY WILL BE FREE FROM THE LAST DAY’S POLLUTION. EVERY OTHER HEART MUST BE POLLUTED,
EXCEPT THE TRUE HEART.
“GOD IS LOOKING FOR A TRUE HEART, NOT A FALSE HEART THAT WILL COME TO GOD WITH HIS LIPS BUT HIS HEART IS FAR AWAY FROM GOD. WITH THE HEART HE STRANGLES GOD; WITH HIS MOUTH HE IS PRAISING GOD. HE IS RENDERING SERVICES, BUT HIS LIFE AND CHARACTER IS CHALLENGING GOD”.

WHEN YOU REJECT THE WORD, YOU REJECT YOUR SALVATION
1.          Now, God has given Me the strength of a lion and I will use the strength to serve His interest and the interest of the Elects of God worldwide. Pay attention!
2.          The totality of everything we are trying to do is to espouse you to THE WORD of His testimony wherein you will be sanctified and have a place among them that are saved.
3.          I gave you the Message titled THE WORD, having one aim. That you will use your own hand, use your own wisdom to look into it and know that THE WORD is nothing but THE ALMIGHTY GOD HIMSELF.
4.          And you will know exactly what God is expecting from you. When you are rejecting THE WORD, you know you are rejecting your salvation, for you are rejecting God.
5.          Whatever blasphemy is THE WORD. Whatever evil-speaking is THE WORD. Whatever hypocrisy is THE WORD. I have come to the realization that the Name of God is THE WORD OF GOD. In the beginning, THE WORD. At the middle, THE WORD. In the end, THE WORD. Thank you!
6.          I have overheard some Brethren making some dirty references to some religious proselytes when they pass by, “Nnaa! These are the born again people. Do not mind those people. Born again group.”
7.          Just like my relation, whom you know very well. He is a member of Assemblies of God and he belongs to their Deacons Board. They appoint them every two years.
8.          He went about telling people that I belong to a secret cult called The Seven Thunders, challenging the people using his years in the Assemblies of God to brag, telling them that anything he never knew in the Scripture does not exist and that Sunday belongs to a secret cult called The Seven thunders.
9.          So one day, he came to My shop and I challenged him with the rumours he was peddling. He said he was not peddling any rumour and that he will say it in My face. That he said it in the market place and everywhere that I belong to a secret cult called Seven Thunders.
10.      I said, “Thank you! Now I believe you were the one. If I show you seven thunders in the Bible, will you believe?” He said, “It is not there. Sunday, you lie a lot. You know everything but you do not know this one. It is not in any book in the Bible. Where is it then that my eyes have not seen it?”
11.      I said, “Poly, keep quiet. Give Me audience. If I show you seven thunders in the Scriptures, will you believe?” He said, “Why would I not believe? I am a Bible student. Show me.”
12.      I have three translations of the Bible in My shop. I brought them out and said, “Sir, I will quote and you will read. Read Revelation 10:1 – 7.” He said, “Revelation? Jesus Christ?” I said, “Yes! Read!” He read in King James version.
13.      He got to verse 7, “In the days of the voice of the seven thunders shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished as He revealeth to his servant the prophets.”
14.      I said, “What? Read it again.” He read it and said, “Seven thunders!” He collected the Bible and looked at it.
15.      I said, “What are you trying to see?” He said, “I want to know whether it is your own church Bible.” I said, “OK. Tomorrow, come with your own.”
16.      The following day, he came with his own. He said, “Sunday, if not that I am senior to you, I would have knelt down. I am sorry. I am sorry. Even my wife repented last night. All my children.”
17.      I said, “Poly, do you know what you will do? Go home, stay in that same market, tell them that I believe the Scriptures and that I do not belong to any secret cult called Seven Thunders.”
18.      Then I began to speak to him on the revelation of the seven thunders. That was what brought him to Fellowship here.
19.      So when you say Born Again, Born Again, the way you use that slang, somebody might be thinking that you are ridiculing him.”Nnaa, I do not believe in this born again.”
20.      Now, the truth of the matter is this: The problem you are having, both in your family and in your work place with the Faith and with eternal life is because a good number of you are not born again.
21.      YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN BEFORE YOU ARE CONVERTED. I have given you the Message in Volumes 1 and 2, IS YOUR HEART CONVERTED? YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN BEFORE YOU ARE CONVERTED.
22.      So, Bro David, come forward with your group.
23.      A Deacon ought not to be lazy. A Deacon is a helper. Check your Scriptures. The qualifications for a Deacon is the qualifications for a Bishop and the qualification for every true child of God. True or false? But once you are a Deacon, it is an express ticket to paradise, if you perform well.
24.      All office holders should strive to know the demands of the offices they are holding. If you know the demands of those offices and pursue them, definitely, the gate is open to you.

Brethren can we understand something from there. Repentance will only help you to do what? Preach the truth, you acknowledge the truth, you can even testify, and you can even defend the truth but yet, the life of the truth is not there because you are not converted. Yet your heart is not converted. Conversion means transforming a black object into a white object, and that white becomes its permanent nature. When the black is bleached, white automatically becomes its permanent nature.

YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN (1)
1.          I want to speak to you on a short exhortation titled, YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN. I say, YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN.
2.          I do not care the way you have been hearing this Message before now. I will not read new Scriptures. But I believe that the Spirit of God will inject life into these Scriptures. Although you knew them in time past, they will become new, FRESH AND ACTIVE once again. I want to inject life into a popular Scriptures.
3.          John 3:3-5 Jesus replied, “With all the earnestness I possess I tell you this: Unless you are born again, A MUST!
4.           You can never get into the Kingdom of God.” “Born again!” exclaimed Nicodemus. “What do you mean? How can an old man go back into his mother’s womb and be born again?”
5.          Jesus replied, “What I am telling you so earnestly is this: Unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God.
6.          Men can only reproduce human life, Men can only reproduce what? ...human life but the Holy Spirit gives new life from heaven; The Holy Spirit does what? Gives new life from heaven. 
7.          This is because the Holy Spirit is from heaven. New life! We are only reproducing human life, but God wants us to reproduce NEW SPIRITUAL LIFE and not mere human life that is of human origin, where a child resembles either his father or his mother. And you want these people to go to Paradise. You are a joker! YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN.
8.          Men can only reproduce human life, but the Holy Spirit gives new life from heaven; so don’t be surprised at my statement that you must be born again! LB  
9.          Jesus answered him, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that unless a person is born again (anew, from above), he cannot ever see (know, be acquainted with, and experience) the kingdom of God.
10.      Nicodemus said to Him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter his mother’s womb again and be born? Jesus answered, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, unless a man is born of water and [even] the Spirit, he cannot [ever] enter the kingdom of God.  
11.      What is born of [from] the flesh is flesh [of the physical is physical]; and what is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not [do not be surprised, astonished] at My telling you, You must all be born anew (from above). AMP
12.      You must all be born anew from above. Pause a little. Two essential ingredients were mentioned for one to be born again. Number one: WATER. Number two: SPIRIT.
13.      Please, I want all of you to have before your eyes these two elements, WATER and SPIRIT. From the Scriptures, I will show you what water is. From the Scripture I will show you also what Spirit is, for you to know when you have been born of water and spirit, for you to be regenerated, get transformed from the natural human being to the supernatural human being. Then, you have the hope of eternal life.
14.      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.
15.      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?
16.      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.
17.      That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. KJV
18.      John 1:12-13 11-12 Even in his own land and among his own people, the Jews, he was not accepted. Only a few would welcome and receive him.
19.      But to all who received him, He gave the right to become children of God. All they needed to do was to trust him to save them.  All those who believe this are reborn!
20.      All those that believe this are what? They are born again. 13All those who believe this are reborn! —not a physical rebirth resulting from human passion or plan—but from the will of God. LB
21.      12 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name—
22.      13 Who owe their birth neither to blood nor to the will of the flesh [that of physical impulse] nor to the will of man [that of a natural father], but to God. [They are born of God!] AMP
23.      They are born of God spiritually. Physically, they can claim to be from anywhere. As they have their earthly parents, so they have their heavenly parent, THE ALMIGHTY.
24.      So, can a man change from natural to supernatural? The answer is Yes! What will he do? HE WILL OBEY, TRUST, CONFIDE, RELY, WELCOME, RECEIVE CHRIST REVEALED IN HIS DAY.
25.      AND THE MOMENT IT IS DONE, HE IS REBORN. HE CHANGES FROM NATURAL TO SUPERNATURAL; FROM FLESH AND BLOOD TO WATER AND SPIRIT.
26.      12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. KJV
27.               1 Peter 1:23 23 For you have a new life. It was not passed on to you from your parents, for the life they gave you will fade away. This new one will last forever, for it comes from Christ, God’s ever-living Message to men. LB
28.      23 You have been regenerated (born again), not from a mortal origin (seed, sperm), but from one that is immortal by the ever living and lasting Word of God. AMP
29.      23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, You see the meaning of regeneration? Reborn, not of what? Not of corruptible seed, but of what? but of incorruptible,
30.      When you are born again by the Word of God, which is incorruptible, nothing will ever corrupt your heart. Nothing will ever corrupt your life. If peradventure, you dare corrupt the Word of God, He will hand you over to corruption.
31.      That is why the Bible said, “The only way you can corrupt the Word of God, the Temple is by false doctrine.”
32.      You are born again by the incorruptible seed, which is the Word of God. You will know what it will produce in you, because it liveth and abideth forever. It does not come and go. It comes in. It settles there. When the Spirit which is the Word descended upon Christ, it abode.
33.      The reason why your heart cannot retain the Truth is because you do not have believing heart to retain the Truth and to believe the truth.  
34.      23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. KJV
35.      By what? THE WORD OF GOD WHICH LIVETH AND ABIDETH FOREVER. I want you to see what water and spirit is all about. I am coming further.
36.      Anything that is created incorruptible, do you not know that that thing is already perfect? Am I making sense? If you have a heart that cannot be corrupted by anything;You know what it takes for your hard disk to be corrupt or for a CD plate to be corrupt. It will not be active again. If your handset is corrupt, every information is wiped off.
37.      And your heart is the hard disk where the Word of God is stored. The moment it is corrupt, it goes to show that it is made of corruptible word or seed. But if it is made of incorruptible Word, nothing can corrupt it.
38.      Even if you try to corrupt it, your conscience will say NO! Even if you disagree with your conscience and act otherwise, you will not sleep until you make it right.
39.      1 John 3:7-9 7Boys (lads), let no one deceive and lead you astray. Let no one deceive you or lead you astray.
40.      He who practices righteousness [who is upright, conforming to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action, living a consistently conscientious life] is righteous,...
41.      Have you heard it? Whoever that does what is right in the sight of God is righteous; consistently doing it. Consistently, he is always on the right, doing the will of God. What is righteousness? Is it not doing the will of God at all times? Consistently and constantly; You are not erratic.
42.      7Boys (lads), let no one deceive and lead you astray. [He who practices righteousness, who is upright conforming to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action, living a consistently conscientious life] is righteous, even as He is righteous.
43.      [But] he who commits sin [who practices evildoing] is of the devil [takes his character from the evil one], for the devil has sinned (violated the divine law) from the beginning.
44.      The reason the Son of God was made manifest (visible) was to undo (destroy, loosen, and dissolve) the works the devil [has done].
45.      No one born (begotten) of God [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practices sin, Why? The Incorruptible Word of God is in there. No one born of God deliberately...
46.      No one born (begotten) of God [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practices sin,... KNOWINGLY AND HABITUALLY PRACTICES EVIL.
47.      ...for God’s nature abides in him... What? GOD’S NATURE ABIDES IN HIM. That is what I want to strike. THE ONLY TICKET TO PARADISE. FOR GOD’S NATURE IS ALREADY IN HIM. FOR GOD IS THE WORD OF GOD, WHICH IS INCORRUPTIBLE AND LIVETH AND ABIDETH FOREVER. You see the protection of every seed of God.
48.      When you have this settled, you are completely immunized against all forms of evil. That is where you will stand and say, “I AM NOT IGNORANT CONCERNING THE DEVICES OF THE DEVIL.” No matter the trick he wants to play, you are always on the alert. Am I making sense at all?
49.      How can you tell Me you have received and welcomed the Incorruptible Word and yet, you are corrupt? You are making God a liar. That you are still corrupt is a sure sign you are an unbeliever. Better accept this Truth.
50.      And every corrupt-minded fellow comes from the Devil. He makes practice of evil deliberately and knowingly. He is the one that commits unpardonable sin. That is exactly where I want to land.
51.      HE MAKES CONSTANT PRACTICE OF REJECTION OF TRUTH SO THAT HIS OWN WILL STANDS. HE CAN NEVER WALK IN GOD’S PLAN. RATHER, HE WILL LIKE TO BEND GOD TO HIS OWN SIDE, ATTEMPTING TO BEND SOMETHING THAT IS UNBENDABLE.
52.      That is why the Bible said that turning of things up-side-down will destroy you. Turning of things up-side-down, trying to make the Creator to obey the creature.
53.       No one born (begotten) of God [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practices sin, for God’s nature abides in him [His principle of life, the divine sperm, remains permanently within him];...  
54.      His principle of life and the divine sperm remains permanently within him. Tell Me where that room exists for the Devil. Tell Me where the room exists for unbelief, for that corruption, when something greater than the Devil is permanently stationed there.
55.      You see why every seed of God is stable. If you are not stable, you are not a seed of God. Check for yourselves whether you have been born again. You that ridicule people that preach born again, though they preach due to lack of understanding, have you been born again by the Word?
56.      Can you stand up and tell the whole world that what is dominating your heart is permanent and is Christ and Christ alone. How many have been born again among us before we begin to talk of conversion? Whether your heart will be converted or not, since you have not been born again.
57.       ...and he cannot deliberately practice sinning because he is born (begotten) of God. AMP
58.      Oh, dear children, don’t let anyone deceive you about this: if you are constantly doing what is good, it is because you are good, even as He is. But if you keep on sinning, it shows that you belong to Satan, who since he first began to sin has kept steadily at it. But the Son of God came to destroy these works of the devil. 
59.      9The person who has been born into God’s family does not make a practice of sinning... If you have been born into God’s family, you cannot make a practice of evils, sin and unbelief.
60.      ...because now God’s life is in him;... What? God’s life is now in him. He is the one that will dwell with God eternally. Whatever God hates, he hates. Whatever God loves, he loves. He is always on God’s side and on the side of Truth, come what may.
61.      Deep calleth deep. If that is your nature and it is My nature, is there any room for disagreement? Who then will accuse the other? Will I accuse you? Will you accuse Me? OK o.
62.      ...so he cannot keep on sinning, for this new life has been born into him and controls him—he has been born again. LB
63.      He has been born again. He now has a permanent nature. No longer the nature of your community, your father, your mother. HAVE YOU BEEN BORN AGAIN?
64.      Remember the topic. The Lord Jesus said to Nicodemus, “YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN” and except you are born again, forget about the Kingdom of God. So, the Kingdom of God is far from many, even as I am talking to you now.
65.      Whoever that says that the Message of these last days is making him weaker is not understanding it.
66.      The reason why he cannot make practice of sin, unbelief, evil is because the Word of God liveth and abideth in him forever. It is permanent there. Nothing influences him away from the Truth, for he himself is a Representative of the Truth; Ambassador of Truth. I hope I am not wasting My time.
67.      HAVE YOU BEEN BORN AGAIN? GOD’S NATURE IS OUR TICKET TO PARADISE ON THE BASIS OF THIS TRUTH. I go further.
68.      Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
69.      He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
70.      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. KJV
71.      1 John 5:18-20 18 No one who has become part of God’s family makes a practice of sinning, for Christ, God’s Son, holds him securely,... What?  
72.      No one who has become part of God’s family makes a practice of sinning,... Have you heard it? HAVE YOU BEEN BORN IN TO GOD’S OWN FAMILY? If you have been born, you can never for one day, make a practice of sinning, unbelief, evil thoughts that leads to evil characters. Why?
73.       ....for Christ, God’s Son, holds him securely,... Who holds him? Christ. God’s Son. The Anointed One, the Messiah, the Saviour. You see why I gave you the Message, THE WORD as a teaching.
74.      Once you understand, by revelation, what THE WORD is all about, that is what exactly upholds every true seed of God. If the lizard leaves the tree, it must surely be captured by the dog.
75.      IF YOUR ANCHOR IS NOT THE WORD, YOU ARE IN THE HAND OF THE DEVIL. THAT IS WHY, ANYBODY THAT IS NOT CONTROLLED BY THE WORD, IS NOT OF GOD, FOR THE WORD OF GOD IS THE SPIRIT OF GOD.
76.      SO IF YOU ARE NOT LED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD, YOU ARE NOT A SEED OF GOD. THE WORD OF GOD, CHRIST IS THE SURE ANCHOR THAT HOLDS EVERY SEED OF GOD AGAINST ERROR, AGAINST SIN, AGAINST EVIL, AND THAT IS, WHEN THE WORD IS ABIDING IN YOU. THE WORD BECOMES YOUR POLICE MAN.
77.      ONLY THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN BORN AGAIN WILL EXPERIENCE THIS NATURE. THIS IS A PRINCIPLE OF LIFE FOR ALL THAT HAVE BEEN BORN AGAIN.
78.        1 John 5:18-20 18 No one who has become part of God’s family makes a practice of sinning, for Christ, God’s Son, holds him securely, and the devil cannot get his hands on him. 
79.      19 We know that we are children of God and that all the rest of the world around us is under Satan’s power and control. 
80.      20 And we know that Christ, God’s Son, has come to help us understand and find the true God. And now we are in God because we are in Jesus Christ his Son, who is the only true God; and he is eternal Life. LB
81.      IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN BORN AGAIN, CONFIRMING THIS TO BE TRUE IS TO YOUR CONDEMNATION. THIS WILL ONLY APPLY TO YOU WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN BORN ANEW, NO LONGER COUNTING ON YOUR FLESH, BUT ON YOUR SPIRIT.
82.      18 We know [absolutely] that anyone born of God does not [deliberately and knowingly] practice committing sin, but the One Who was begotten of God carefully watches over and protects him [Christ’s divine presence within him preserves him against the evil], and the wicked one does not lay hold (get a grip) on him or touch [him].
83.      19 We know [positively] that we are of God, and the whole world [around us] is under the power of the evil one.
84.      20 And we [have seen and] know [positively] that the Son of God has [actually] come to this world and has given us understanding and insight [progressively] to perceive (recognize) and come to know better and more clearly Him Who is true; and we are in Him Who is true—in His Son Jesus Christ (the Messiah). This [Man] is the true God and Life eternal. AMP
85.      18 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. 19 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
86.      20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. KJV

Whoever that God sends speaks the Word of God. For God is with Him. If you believe that I am sent by God, and in Me whoever is the Deity, whoever is that God, in Me, He is made known to all of you. In other words, He tabernacles in Me, using Me as an instrument to reach you. So, I am the Divinely ordained instrument sent to you for your salvation. Be it known to you that this day, salvation has come to you, if only you will accept it.
THE WORD; Preached on 13th January,

THE THREE WITNESSES

1.          1 John 5:8-12 6-8 And we know he is, because God said so with a voice from heaven when Jesus was baptized, and again as he was facing death—yes, not only at his baptism but also as he faced death. And the Holy Spirit, forever truthful, says it too.
2.          So we have these three witnesses: the voice of the Holy Spirit in our hearts, the voice from heaven at Christ’s baptism, and the voice before he died. And they all say the same thing: that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
3.          We believe men who witness in our courts, and so surely we can believe whatever God declares. And God declares that Jesus is his Son.
4.          Pay attention. I AM THE RESURRECTED BODY. These three witnesses can never tell lies. And since God cannot tell lies, whether we like it or not, of a necessity, we must be born again.
5.          If you watch the three witnesses, there is no iota of deceit in their witnesses. THE AUTHOR OF ETERNAL LIFE IS TELLING US WHAT IT WILL TAKE FOR US TO HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. WHO THEN WILL DOUBT HIM?
6.          [Lifting the King’s Cup] I have this cup as a gift. And you need it. It is essential to your existence. I stipulate conditions for which you will collect it from Me. If it is a fact or a necessity for your existence, what you will be thinking of is how to pay the price to collect it. How to meet My demands. No more. No less.
7.          AND WHEN I HAD ALREADY SWORN AN OATH THAT I WILL NOT REDUCE ONE BIT, NO NEGOTIATION AGAIN, YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN. IF IT IS WAS NOT ESSENTIAL, THREE WITNESSES WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN INVITED TO BEAR WITNESS
8.          10 All who believe this know in their hearts that it is true. If anyone doesn’t believe this, he is actually calling God a liar because he doesn’t believe what God has said about his Son.
9.          11 And what is it that God has said? That he has given us eternal life and that this life is in his Son. 12 So whoever has God’s Son has life; whoever does not have his Son, does not have life. LB
10.      and there are three witnesses on the earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree [are in unison; their testimony coincides]. If we accept [as we do] the testimony of men [if we are willing to take human authority], the testimony of God is greater (of stronger authority), for this is the testimony of God, even the witness which He has borne regarding His Son.
11.      10 He who believes in the Son of God [who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Him] has the testimony [possesses this divine attestation] within himself. He who does not believe God [in this way] has made Him out to be and represented Him as a liar, because he has not believed (put his faith in, adhered to, and relied on) the evidence (the testimony) that God has borne regarding His Son.
12.      11 And this is that testimony (that evidence): God gave us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 12 He who possesses the Son has that life; he who does not possess the Son of God does not have that life. AMP
13.      And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one. If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.
14.      10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
15.      11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. KJV
16.      Ephesians 5: 26-27 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it,... He will sanctify, cleanse it by what? ...with the washing of water by the word,
17.      SO THE WATER IS THE WORD. THE WATER DOES THE CLEANSING. THE WATER DOES THE SANCTIFICATION. IS IT NOT TRUE? AND THE WATER IS THE WORD. So, you must be born again by the Word, which is the water. Cleansed by the word.
18.      Jesus said, “You are cleansed by the Words I have spoken to you.” That is for as many as welcomed the Word. He said, “Sanctify them by Thy Word, for Thy Word is Truth.” To sanctify is to make holy.
19.      So, when you heard, “You must be born by water and by spirit”, it is the same Word. The same word said, “The Words I speak unto you, they are spirit. They are life”
20.        26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. KJV
21.      1 John 1:7-10 But if we are living in the light of God’s presence, just as Christ does, then we have wonderful fellowship and joy with each other, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from every sin.
22.      If we say that we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and refusing to accept the truth. But if we confess our sins to him, he can be depended on to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong. And it is perfectly proper for God to do this for us because Christ died to wash away our sins.
23.      On this matter, there should not be any self-justification. If you say you have not sinned, you are a liar. And you make God to be a liar. You are involved. I am involved. So, there is no way you can look sideways on this matter. You have to personalize it.
24.      Now, the Grace of God that bringeth salvation has appeared, He has created room for you to open up and make your confessions to God and turn away from your iniquities, YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN.
25.      WHEN THE WORD OF GOD HAS COME AND SETTLED IN YOUR HEART, YOU ARE COMPLETELY INSULATED FROM FURTHER ATTACKS. SIN BECOMES A THING OF THE PAST. OLD THINGS HAVE NOW PASSED AWAY.
26.      You cannot be sitting with the old things, manifesting old things, only to be reading Scriptures telling Me they are passed away, when they are all in you.
27.      When did they pass away? So, make no mistakes about it. Let us address this matter squarely as it affects us.
28.       10If we claim we have not sinned, we are lying and calling God a liar, for he says we have sinned. LB
29.      7But if we [really] are living and walking in the Light, as He [Himself] is in the Light, we have [true, unbroken] fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses (removes) us from all sin and guilt [keeps us cleansed from sin in all its forms and manifestations].
30.      8If we say we have no sin [refusing to admit that we are sinners], we delude and lead ourselves astray, and the Truth [which the Gospel presents] is not in us [does not dwell in our hearts].
31.      9If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own nature and promises) and will forgive our sins [dismiss our lawlessness] and [continuously] cleanse us from all unrighteousness [everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action].
32.      10If we say (claim) we have not sinned, we contradict His Word and make Him out to be false and a liar, and His Word is not in us [the divine message of the Gospel is not in our hearts]. AMP
33.      7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
34.      8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
35.      10If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. KJV
36.      John 6:63 63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. KJV
37.      The Words I speak unto you, they are what? Spirit. They are life. Have you now seen what it takes to be born again by water and by the Spirit?
38.      To be cleansed by the water is to be sanctified by the Word. THE WORD, THE SPIRIT, THE WATER, THEY ARE THE SAME. AND THESE ARE THE THREE MAJOR WITNESSES, ALL POINTING TO ONE THING. THE WORD. THE WORD IN YOU, THE HOPE OF GLORY. YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN.
39.      63 Only the Holy Spirit gives eternal life. Those born only once, with physical birth, will never receive this gift. But now I have told you how to get this true spiritual life.  LB
40.      63 It is the Spirit Who gives life [He is the Life-giver]; the flesh conveys no benefit whatever [there is no profit in it]. The words (truths) that I have been speaking to you are spirit and life. AMP
41.      I am about to go. Deuteronomy 18:15-19 The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;
42.      16 According to all that thou desiredst of the Lord thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not.
43.      17 And the Lord said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken. 18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.
44.      19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him. KJV
45.      15 “Instead, he will raise up for you a prophet like me, an Israeli, a man to whom you must listen and whom you must obey. A MAN, WHOM YOU MUST LISTEN TO AND ALSO OBEY.
46.      16 For this is what you yourselves begged of God at Mount Horeb. There at the foot of the mountain you begged that you might not have to listen to the terrifying voice of God again, or see the awesome fire on the mountain, lest you die.
47.      17 “‘All right,’ the Lord said to me, ‘I will do as they have requested. 18 I will raise up from among them a prophet, an Israeli like you.
48.      I will tell him what to say, and he shall be my spokesman to the people. 19 I will personally deal with anyone who will not listen to him...
49.      I will personally deal with anyone who refuses to pay heed to Him for any reason, best known to that person….. and heed his messages from me. LB
50.      Acts 3:22-23 21-22 For he must remain in heaven until the final recovery of all things from sin, as prophesied from ancient times. Moses, for instance, said long ago, ‘The Lord God will raise up a Prophet among you, who will resemble me! 
51.      Listen carefully to everything he tells you. 23 Anyone who will not listen to him shall be utterly destroyed.’ LB Amen.
52.      22 Thus Moses said to the forefathers, The Lord God will raise up for you a Prophet from among your brethren as [He raised up] me; Him you shall listen to and understand by hearing and heed in all things whatever He tells you.
53.      23 And it shall be that every soul that does not listen to and understand by hearing and heed that Prophet shall be utterly [a]exterminated from among the people. AMP
54.      22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
55.      23 And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. KJV
56.      Exodus 20:18-20 18 All the people saw the lightning and the smoke billowing from the mountain, and heard the thunder and the long, frightening trumpet blast; and they stood at a distance, shaking with fear.
57.      19 They said to Moses, “You tell us what God says and we will obey, but don’t let God speak directly to us, or it will kill us.”
58.      20 “Don’t be afraid,” Moses told them, “for God has come in this way to show you his awesome power, so that from now on you will be afraid to sin against him!” LB
59.      From now on, you will be what? You will be afraid to sin against God. From now on, you will be afraid to act contrary to the teaching you have received. And the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.

LET THE WORD OF GOD DWELL RICHLY IN YOUR HEART THAT YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO PROVE THAT WHICH IS GOOD, WHICH IS PROPER, WHICH IS PURE, WHICH IS PERFECT AND ACCEPTABLE WILL OF GOD......ALLOW THE WORD OF GOD TO CONTROL YOU. ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF THE PROPHET, IF YOU ARE A CHILD OF THE PROPHET, HE IS LOOKING FOR ONE HE WILL CONTROL BY HIS WORD.

YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN (2)

1.          Deuteronomy 5:23-29 23 But when you heard the loud voice from the darkness and saw the terrible fire at the top of the mountain, all your tribal leaders came to me 
2.          24 and pleaded, ‘Today the Lord our God has shown us his glory and greatness; we have even heard his voice from the heart of the fire. Now we know that a man may speak to God and not die; 
3.          25 but we will surely die if he speaks to us again. This awesome fire will consume us. 26-27 What man can hear, as we have, the voice of the living God speaking from the heart of the fire, and live? You go and listen to all that God says, then come and tell us, and we will listen and obey.’
4.          28 “And the Lord agreed to your request and said to me, ‘I have heard what the people have said to you, and I agree. 
5.          29 Oh, that they would always have such a heart for me, wanting to obey my commandments. Then all would go well with them in the future, and with their children throughout all generations! LB Amen.
6.          The moment the willingness is there to obey; you have changed your heart and you have become born again, they are no longer stiff-necked, God said, “All shall be well them and their children and their generations.”
7.          23 And when you heard the voice out of the midst of the darkness, while the mountain was burning with fire, you came near me, all the heads of your tribes and your elders;
8.          24 And you said, Behold, the Lord our God has shown us His glory and His greatness, and we have heard His voice out of the midst of the fire; we have this day seen that God speaks with man and man still lives.
9.          25 Now therefore, why should we die? For this great fire will consume us; if we hear the voice of the Lord our God any longer, we shall die.
10.      26 For who is there of all flesh who has heard the voice of the living God speaking out of the midst of fire, as we have, and lived?
11.      27 Go near [Moses] and hear all that the Lord our God will say. And speak to us all that the Lord our God will speak to you; and we will hear and do it.
12.      28 And the Lord heard your words when you spoke to me and the Lord said to me, I have heard the words of this people which they have spoken to you. They have said well all that they have spoken.
13.      29 Oh, that they had such a [mind and] heart in them always [reverently] to fear Me and keep all My commandments, that it might go well with them and with their children forever! AMP
14.      23 And it came to pass, when ye heard the voice out of the midst of the darkness, (for the mountain did burn with fire,) that ye came near unto me, even all the heads of your tribes, and your elders;
15.      24 And ye said, Behold, the Lord our God hath shewed us his glory and his greatness, and we have heard his voice out of the midst of the fire: we have seen this day that God doth talk with man, and he liveth.
16.      25 Now therefore why should we die? for this great fire will consume us: if we hear the voice of the Lord our God any more, then we shall die.
17.      26 For who is there of all flesh, that hath heard the voice of the living God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived?
18.      27 Go thou near, and hear all that the Lord our God shall say: and speak thou unto us all that the Lord our God shall speak unto thee; and we will hear it, and do it.
19.      28 And the Lord heard the voice of your words, when ye spake unto me; and the Lord said unto me, I have heard the voice of the words of this people, which they have spoken unto thee: they have well said all that they have spoken.
20.      29 O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!  KJV
21.      Joshua 1: 16-18 16 To this they fully agreed and pledged themselves to obey Joshua as their commander-in-chief. 17-18 We will obey you just as we obeyed Moses,” they assured him,... “We will obey you”, they pledged. They took counsel together and agreed that they will obey the Man God has placed before them; Joshua, the son of Nun.
22.      We will obey you just as we obeyed Moses,” they assured him, “and may the Lord your God be with you as he was with Moses. If anyone, no matter who, rebels against your commands, he shall die. So lead on with courage and strength!”
23.      16 They answered Joshua, All you command us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go. 17 As we hearkened to Moses in all things, so will we hearken to you; only may the Lord your God be with you as He was with Moses.
24.      18 Whoever rebels against your commandment and will not hearken to all you command him shall be put to death. Only be strong, vigorous, and of good courage. AMP
25.      16 And they answered Joshua, saying, All that thou commandest us we will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us, we will go. 17 According as we hearkened unto Moses in all things, so will we hearken unto thee: only the Lord thy God be with thee, as he was with Moses.
26.      18 Whosoever he be that doth rebel against thy commandment, and will not hearken unto thy words in all that thou commandest him, he shall be put to death: only be strong and of a good courage. KJV
27.      John 3:31 31 “He has come from heaven and is greater than anyone else. I am of the earth, and my understanding is limited to the things of earth. LB
28.      That was John the Baptist testifying about the Lord Jesus as a heavenly messenger who came with a heavenly message. John was making comparison between an earthly messenger and an earthly messenger.
29.      Just like William Branham said, that he is an earthly messenger and that He that must come after him is a heavenly Messenger.  
30.      Pay attention! Moses was an earthly messenger. Joshua, an earthly messenger. John the Baptist, earthly messenger. William Branham, earthly messenger. All that disobeyed earthly messengers were destroyed without mercy. They were all sentenced to hell, for disobeying earthly messengers.  
31.      31 He who comes from above (heaven) is [far] above all [others]; he who comes from the earth belongs to the earth, and talks the language of earth [his words are from an earthly standpoint]. He who comes from heaven is [far] above all others [far superior to all others in prominence and in excellence]. AMP
32.      31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. KJV
33.      Hebrews 2:1-4 1So we must listen very carefully to the truths we have heard,... We must do what? We must listen very carefully to the truths we have heard.
34.      What we are hearing since morning, are they Truths? That you must be born again or else, you will not smell the Kingdom of God. Is it true? Is it true? Are there three witnesses to it? The Son of Man is confirming it.
35.      1So we must listen very carefully to the truths we have heard or we may drift away from them. For since the messages from angels have always proved true and people have always been punished for disobeying them, 
36.      what makes us think that we can escape if we are indifferent to this great salvation announced by the Lord Jesus himself and passed on to us by those who heard him speak?
37.      God always has shown us that these messages are true by signs and wonders and various miracles and by giving certain special abilities from the Holy Spirit to those who believe; yes, God has assigned such gifts to each of us. LB
38.      1Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
39.      For if the word spoken by angels was steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of reward;
40.      How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;
41.      God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with diverse miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will? KJV
42.      Is there anything we read there which God has not done in our midst? Has God not confirmed this Message with signs and wonders? With miracles? With Supernaturals?
43.      Brethren, from now henceforth, we are without excuse. YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN.
44.      1Since all this is true, we ought to pay much closer attention than ever to the truths that we have heard, lest in any way we drift past [them] and slip away.
45.      For if the message given through angels [the Law spoken by them to Moses] was authentic and proved sure, and every violation and disobedience received an appropriate (just and adequate) penalty,
46.      How shall we escape [appropriate retribution] if we neglect and refuse to pay attention to such a great salvation [as is now offered to us, letting it drift past us forever]?
47.      For it was declared at first by the Lord [Himself], and it was confirmed to us and proved to be real and genuine by those who personally heard [Him speak].
48.      [Besides this evidence] it was also established and plainly endorsed by God, Who showed His approval of it by signs and wonders and various miraculous manifestations of [His] power and by imparting the gifts of the Holy Spirit [to the believers] according to His own will. AMP
