CHARACTER OF THE SPIRIT BORN

KEY SCRIPTURE: John 3:8 KJV “The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

After the Lord had stated clearly that every man, wishing to see the kingdom of God must first be born again, He went on to explain the agents of this new birth. Now he describes the character of the man who is born again. The Lord compares him to the wind. He said the wind blows from wherever it wants, and goes to wherever it chooses. One may here It’s sound but can’t tell where it is coming from. The Lord meant anyone born of the Spirit is

 1.Unpredictable

2. He or she is unlimited. This also means nothing is impossible to him.

I wish to say that as Christians we should not live according to the experiences of men, but to match every experience with the word of God. If our experience falls short of scriptural standards, then we must stretch our faith further to match up.

The Christian or the Saint of God should not be dominated, manipulated or victimised under any condition. He is saved to be free. From every satanic, worldly or fleshly domination. Amplified Bible, Classic Edition put Philippians 4:13 this way ” I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency]. Hallelujah! Apostle Paul declares he has learnt to be sufficient in all things because of the Spirit of Christ in him, who strengthens him. One’s reaction in a particular situation determines whether he is being victimised or not.

 If a person rejoices in whatever situation he finds himself, then he is free from the tormenting effect of that condition.

We realised from our initial discourse that, the man born of the Spirit is not limited or restricted by whatever Satan may raise. It could be anything meant to destroy him, yet He stands and overcomes them. The life of our Lord Jesus demonstrated a man who could not be limited or restricted by anything whatsoever. No disease could stand before Him. The waters could not prevent Him from getting to His disciples (Matt 14). Death had no power to restrain Him. A man dead after four days was not enough to get Him, worrying or wondering what to do. He called the dead man back to life without touching or shaking the dead and bound man. Jesus expressed the real life of a man born of the Spirit. Throughout history there has been many men who have likewise demonstrated this life of a man born of the Spirit. Smith Wigglesworth, the uneducated plumber, turned preacher, was a man who proved that, this life of the Spirit is for real. Archbishop Benson Idahosa of Africa, also proved it. Many men of God in our times are proving it.

 It is not an impossible state to walk in or prove.

Let’s accept the word of God, and prove that, the life of a man born of the Spirit is a reality for every child of God.

 It is an indictment of the reality of the power of God for a man of God to be scared of coronavirus.

Indeed, a man born of the Spirit cannot be limited by any of these diseases.

THOUGHT:  YOUR DOGGED STANDS OR TRUST IN THE WORD MAKES YOU UNLIMITED.
