REGENERATION

Mat 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Mat 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

DEFINITION OF THISTLES 1) a thistle, a prickly wild plant, hurtful to other plants

Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

Eph 5:9 (For the fruit of the Spirit [is] in all goodness and righteousness and truth;

Today in most peoples lives/ calling themselves Christians, there is No Evidence of any FRUIT, ZERO fruit in 95% of their lives, or what is called BAD FRUIT. Mildew, Spoiled, uneatable Fruit.

            

The WORD tells us Plainly/ By Their FRUIT ye shall know them/ the Next Scripture says that just because you are Calling JESUS Lord/ or calling yourself a Christian, dose not mean you are going to Heaven. Then the Word Thistles tells us that these UNFRUITFUL, Un Regenerated people called thorns, are causing HURT to the Rest of the BODY.

            

So How have we gone so FAR from the TRUE STANDARD.?/ How can People who have NO FRUIT in their own Lives/ even think they are Born Again.? These are issues we are going to EXPOSE and show you the Scriptural Truth on what being Born Again means/ Not what the watered down, secular version means/ THE MEANING of REGENERATION/ which is where we get the term Born Again. IT is the REGENERATION of the Holy Spirit.

Tts 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

That is how we are SAVED!!! The HOLY SPIRIT REGENERATES us by Water By Spirit.

Jhn 3:5 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.

Mat 19:28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Here Jesus tells us that the REGENERATION is something we DO. We FOLLOW HIM. THis is an ACTION/ Where the Believer Becomes a DOER of the WORD/ YOU have to be ACTIVELY FOLLOWING JESUS. JESUS is always MOVING forward, PRODUCING RESULTS that are Destroying the works of the devil.

Now I want you to READ the Definition of this WORD REGENERATION/ which is Where the Term, Born Again comes from.

3824 nt strongs Regeneration

1) new birth, reproduction, renewal, recreation, regeneration

a) hence renovation, regeneration, the production of a new life consecrated to God, a radical change of mind for the better. The word often used to denote the restoration of a thing to its pristine state, its renovation, as a renewal or restoration of life after death

b) the renovation of the earth after the deluge

c) the renewal of the world to take place after its destruction by fire, as the Stoics taught

d) the signal and glorious change of all things (in heaven and earth) for the better, that restoration of the primal and perfect condition of things which existed before the fall of our first parents, which the Jews looked for in connection with the advent of the Messiah, and which Christians expected in connection with the visible return of Jesus from heaven.

In Other WORDS/ the FRUIT you need to have in your Life/ if your Claiming to be a Christian, who is Born again/ IS A RADICAL CHANGE// RADICALLY RESTORED/

NEW LIFE must be Evident/ and FRUIT must Abound/ FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT.

            

FRUIT unto RIGHTEOUSNESS

Eph 4:24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

Eph 5:9 (For the fruit of the Spirit [is] in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)

Definition of Righteousness / 1349 strongs

1) righteous, observing divine laws

2) innocent, faultless, guiltless

3) used of him whose way of thinking, feeling, and acting is wholly conformed to the will of God, and who therefore needs no rectification in the heart or life

a) only Christ truly

4) approved of or acceptable of God

Our Lives are Suppose to GLORIFY GOD/ there is no way to GLORIFY GOD when you have NO FRUIT/ or BAD FRUIT/ You are Going to be Known to All/ but more Importantly, to God, By your FRUIT.

What is your LIFE PRODUCING? Do you have any FRUIT that Produces Evidence of you being REGENERATED?

If there is NO FRUIT in your Life/ you have not been Born Again.

Gal 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

IF you SOW to your FLESH/ you will have NO FRUIT unto RIGHTEOUSNESS. YOU are all Going to REAP what you are now SOWING/ You can not REAP SPIRITUAL FRUIT by SOWING anything but GODS WORD into your Life.

Gods Word is what Produces FRUIT of the SPIRIT. YOU can not Live like the World/ and Bear Fruit of the Spirit.

You can not Call yourself a Christian/ and have NO EVIDENCE OF FRUIT IN YOUR LIFE.

Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Rom 13:11 And that, knowing the time, that now [it is] high time to awake out of sleep: for now [is] our salvation nearer than when we believed.

PROPHETIC WORD

*********************************************

Speakers of the Mystery

1 Corinthians 2:6-8
However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, 8 which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. NKJV

A spiritual language is coming forth from those who are mature among those who are mature. It is a language that cannot be comprehended by the mind but must first be received within the spirit of an individual. Words are spirit and life and are received as spirit and life without the need for analysis and man's wisdom to understand. There is NO understanding apart from the Holy Spirit bringing revelation to what we are given. He alone unveils truth within us. We simply receive from the Holy Spirit and by faith receive understanding of the revelation as we receive it as truth.

Our language today in Christianity has been diluted with man's wisdom and too often we have developed a Christians babble that does not hold any substance for change. We talk and talk but have no power in our words because the source of our words comes from our own carnal understanding, our mind, and our wisdom. We talk empty words full of our substance and void of the substance of Christ Jesus in them. He is the Word and the perfecter of the Word flowing through us. We speak Him. We teach Him. We prophesy Him. He is the Living Word in us. It is not words that we speak. It is Him that we speak.

We are to be speakers of the wisdom of God in a mystery. Is not that what it says above in that verse? That mystery, when spoken, is the unveiling of Christ in us, the hope of glory. Him we know and Him we speak. We are taken out of the equation for there is no good in us. That is fact. Our wisdom is to be extracted as our words are perfected in Christ. Our understanding is to come from the Holy Spirit and not our own natural senses. Have we forgotten that? Paul said it quite simply.

1 Corinthians 2:1-5
And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. 2 For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. 3 I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. 4 And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. NKJV

Where are the speakers of the mystery of God found in Christ? This mystery of Jesus Christ has been ordained before the ages for our glory. Kingdom people will arise and are arising NOW with the mystery of Christ in their spirit. God Himself will give us the freedom of utterance NOW and in the coming days to bring forth the Kingdom with a Spiritual language.

John 6:63
63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. NKJV

The Body of Christ desperately needs those who speak forth the mysteries that are found in Christ. Why is this necessary? As the speakers are perfected in Christ and in the very words they bring forth in power and authority, the Body will mature. Therefore we will then be able to say as Paul Himself said so clearly.

Colossians 1:24-29
I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church, 25 of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God, 26 the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. 27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. 28 Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. 29 To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily. NKJV

We are called as leaders to present every man perfect in Christ Jesus, to present every man as whole and mature, growing from the Living Word that is being perfected in us in the Perfection of Christ Jesus. Let us put aside childish things and press onto maturity. It is time.

THE BRIGHT AND MORNING-STAR

Re 2:28 And I will give him the morning star.

Re 22:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, [and] the bright and morning star.

Lu 1:78 Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the day spring from on high hath visited us,

Lu 1:79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and [in] the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

2 Pe 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.
