HOW TO COMMIT YOUR LIFE TO CHRIST AND BECOME BORN AGAIN, A TRUE CHILD OF GOD AND A TRUE CHRISTIAN
Beloved, this is the first step you need to take to be able to say the prayers on this blog and get results. You dare not face the devil or use the Name of the Lord Jesus when you are not a part of His Heavenly Father’s household; the devil will laugh at you and viciously attack you as he did to the sons of Sceva who tried it as recorded in the Book of Acts, 19:13-16…
13Then some of the itinerant Jewish exorcists took it upon themselves to call the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, “We exorcise you by the Jesus whom Paul preaches.” 14Also there were seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, who did so. 15And the evil spirit answered and said, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?” 16Then the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, overpowered them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. Acts 19:13-16
Now, according to the Lord Jesus, this is what it means to be born again –
Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. John 3:3-5 NKJV
This new birth is crucial becos all human beings are born with the tendency to sin which we inherited from Adam, the progenitor of all humans. God created the earth and put man into it to be the boss over everything but the first man, Adam, fell into Satan’s deception in the Garden of Eden and Satan then took control of the earth and everything on it!
How do we get it back from him? We do not have that power because of our sin nature, so God sent His sinless Son to get it back for us by paying the price for sin which is Blood; and that was why Christ died and shed His Blood for all mankind at Calvary 2000 years ago.
He then set up His Father’s Kingdom on earth and called it My Church. Mark you, the Church is not a building but the gathering of a people whom God called out of the world to Himslef; a people who have renounced satan by willingly committing themselves to follow Jesus Christ, the Son of God. The Kingdom of Christ also comprises of the homes of all Christians and any place on earth that has been snatched back from wicked Satan with warfare prayers.
But we can’t enter God’s holy Kingdom and be called Christians, His Children, unless we accept the sacrifice of Christ as our ticket, our visa into the Kingdom – that is what being born again means; and you get that ticket, that visa by faith through saying a simple prayer called The Sinners’ Prayer which is at the end of another teaching which you access through the link attached to this short teaching below. The Lord then comes to live in our hearts with His Holy Spirit; and, as He is the Light of the world, He chases all darkness away from the lives of His followers!
Gradually as we read the Bible daily and fellowship with others in Church and pray to Him daily, we begin to change in our thinking and our ways and others will notice and say “Oh he/she is a born again Christian too!”
Being a Christian gives you victory over the battles of life because the Holy Spirit of God comes to live in you and He teaches you how to use the Word of God to war and also empowers you to overcome and live in victory. So it is imperative that you read the Bible daily and memorize parts of it as this is the only way to learn how to use the Word as a weapon of war. Reading the Bible also helps you to know God and learn His ways as a holy God and also as a God of War.
Here is the link to the teaching on prayer, including The Sinner’s Prayer; and it is on this same Pen of The Ready Writer blog….
Welcome into the Household and Kingdom of the Most High God and King, Beloved!
