Word for Today:  August 8


Born Again

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.

Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.  John 3:3,7

What does this mean?

  • Born Again is an Experience.
  • Born Again   is an Encounter.
  • Born Again is a Personal Decision.
  • Born Again is Supernatural.
  • Born Again is Jesus coming into your heart.
  • Born Again is a Work of the Holy Spirit.
  • Born Again is the Impartation and infusion of God’s divine nature into you.
  • Born Again means Changed.
  • Born Again means Repent.
  • Born Again means Like Christ.
  • Born Again means Justified.
  • Born Again means Righteous.
  • Born Again means Holy.
  • Born Again means Separated from the world.
  • Born Again means New Creation in Christ.

It is not religion.  It is not good works. It is not belonging to a church.  It is not being baptized. It is not taking communion.  It is not being sweet and nice and kind and considerate.  It is not being “better” than some Church Members you might know.

On the believers side it begins with Faith and Repentance.  On the God-ward side it results in Regeneration and Justification.  It is a miracle of the First Order and it is the Ultimate Desire of Father God for every living person on earth.  It is a Gift.  And it is free for the asking.

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.   Ro 10:13

Proper Knowledge.

It is important for you to know who you are, what you have and what you can do as a believer.   The devil constantly tempts you to doubt all of the above.   he wants you to doubt who you are (he tried to get Jesus to doubt Who He was) or to wonder who you are or to be ignorant of who you are.  As long as you are not sure of your position in Christ and your authority as a believer, your faith will not work.

You cannot receive what you do not know about.  God has raised up anointed ministries in order to instruct believers of their privileges and rights which are revealed in the Word.   The power of this Truth working in your spirit will produce change in your soul (mind) and in your body.

As you get the Word built up in you, Faith is produced and developed because faith comes by hearing the Word.   As your Faith is perfected you come into fresh revelation concerning your Position in Christ.  God has called, appointed and anointed individuals who are operating in the five-fold ministry (Ephesians 4) in the Body as Master Craftsmen to perfect you (build you up) in ministry.   You are “God’s Building.”

 … ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.  1Co 3:9

Let the Work continue

A Revelation God.

Our concept of God has been somewhat limited and incorrect in the past.  We have been taught that God is mad and mean.  We have often lived in great fear and anxiety because we were told that God was going to get even.  He has been presented as a God of Judgment and revenge and great wrath.

At the same time we were told how unworthy we were and how we were hardened sinners and were therefore under constant condemnation.  The main message from the pulpit was fear oriented and it continually emphasized how hot hell is.

Thank God, times have changed.  Our level of revelation has greatly increased and we have come into a better understanding of the true nature of God.

God is a Giver.  God is a Giver because He is a Lover.  God us a Lover because He is a Father.  God does not kill, murder, take away, hinder, hurt, test, try, make sick, give cancer, cause poverty, or “get even”.

God is Good and He Loves, Gives, Multiplies, Heals, Delivers, Sets Free, Makes Rich, Fixes, Helps, Strengthens, Provides, Protects.

It’s the devil that kills, steals, robs, destroys, makes sick, hinders, hurts, binds, subtracts, breaks, steals your money, your happiness, your joy and your peace.

The devil steals, kills and destroys.


God gives LIFE and LIFE more ABUNDANTLY   John 10:10

God is a Miracle God.  He knows all about miracles.  God likes miracles and God performs miracles.  God delights in performing the impossible for those who love Him.  God wants you to receive your miracle more than you desire to have it…  His desire for you to receive is greater than your desire to get.  God’s ways are miraculous ways.  He declares that:

My ways are higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts…Isa 55:9

The devil hates miracles.  Miracles have defeated and humiliated him in in the past and they will overcome him in the present.  Miracles prove God, reveal God and release God’s Power.  Miracles always defeat the devil and prevent him from fulfilling his mission.  Healing is a miracle.  Deliverance is a miracle.  Salvation is a miracle.  The Holy Spirit Baptism is a miracle.  All these defeat the devil and make an open show of his weakness and helplessness.

The Church needs miracles.  Too long we have operated in our own strength and our own ability.  We have manufactured the ”religious” machine, kept it well-oiled and repaired, painted and polished it, spent our efforts in lowering empty buckets into empty wells and we have grown weary of bringing nothing up.  The church has, in many cases, become nothing more than a man-made organism functioning in the limitations of man’s strength and human ability.

The Church needs miracles.  The church needs challenges that will shake it out of its self-sufficiency and mediocrity.

If we are not doing the Miraculous we are doing no more than General Motors or Chrysler or Ford or IBM.  The Church needs to expect miracles. The Church will never surpass what it can do and get what God can give if it miracles continue to be absent from its ministry.


In today’s church, Miracles are to be the Norm and not the Exception

An Unfailing Anchor.

God’s Word is an Anchor that holds (Heb 6:19).   It is as reliable as God is.  It is as strong as God is.  It is as enduring as God is.  It is as changeless as God is.

The Word proved to be an unfailing Anchor in the lives and experiences of many of the Heroes we read about in the Bible.  It held steady in times of trials and impossibilities.  It gave them security in the times of storms and conflicts.  The Word was an anchor in them that held them secure in the Hand of God.

  • The Word in Moses produced Israel’s deliverance from Egypt.
  • The Word in Joshua drove out the enemy and produced victory in the Promised Land.
  • The Word in David gave him strength in the time of temptation and victory in the time of attack. The result was and is the matchless beauty of Worship and Praise in the Book of Psalms.
  • The Word in Elijah produced water in the season of drought.
  • The Word in Joseph sustained him in prison, delivered him from lies and brought him great favor and promotion as the Prime Minister of Egypt.
  • The Word in Job kept him faithful to God in his loss of everything he loved and treasured.
  • The Word in Elisha raised the Shunammite’s son from the dead, caused the axe head to swim and cleansed numerous lepers.
  • The Word in Daniel stopped the mouths of hungry lions.
  • The Word in Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, cooled the fiery furnace and brought the Son of God from heaven to comfort them.
  • The Word in John the Baptist caused him to launch Jesus into His public ministry.
  • The Word in Peter gave him power to walk on water.
  • The Word in Paul saw him through ship wrecks, stonings, scourgings, imprisonments, rejections and betrayals and produced most of the New Testament.
  • The Word in John gave him a glimpse of the Rapture, the Return of Jesus and the Eternal Perfect State of those who are washed in the Blood.

The Word held them steady in the face of every impossibility.

The Word will hold you in every adversity and trial.

It is our Anchor.

It never fails

Continuing in victory.

Continuing in victory depends on continuing in the Word.  What you do with the Word determines what the Word will do for you.  How you Work the Word determines what the Word will work for you.  Giving the Word first place in your life and making the Word your Instruction Manual is extremely important. You need to learn the Word.  Study the Word.  Know the Word.  Meditate the Word. Speak the Word.  Pray the Word.  Believe the Word.  And, most importantly, Do the Word.

When you get full of the Word, no matter what shakes you, only the Word will come out.  If a glass is full of only water, no matter how badly it’s shaken, nothing but water will come out.   When you are full of the Word, no matter how bad your circumstances may be, nothing but the Word will come out.

Hide the Word in your heart and plant it in your spirit.  Think it and meditate it.  Never turn away from it.  Keep it before your eyes night and day.  Treasure it.  Love it and honor it.  Obey it.  See it as your Source.  It is food for your spirit and protection for your body and healing for your bones…  GET INTO THE WORD and GET THE WORD INTO YOU.


Be fill with all the fullness of God…  Eph 3:19

Get involved.

Spiritual Growth depends on proper teaching.  The only correct teaching is Word Teaching.  The only adequate teaching is the teaching of the Whole Word.  Word Churches teach the Whole Word to the Whole man.

You need to get involved and committed to a ministry that does not compromise the Word… a ministry  and a church that preaches and practices everything that the Word Teaches.  You need to belong.  You need to help shoulder the responsibility of getting the Gospel to the World.  Your family needs the protection and provision of a strong Word Ministry.

It is extremely important that you attend and support and give into a ministry that is doing what the Word tells you to do.  Your love for Jesus is reflected in your love for your church.  Your family needs to know how to get healed and stay healed… how to get rid of devils and run demons off.  Your children need to know how to resist the devil and how to stand on the Word.  Your marriage needs the protection of a strong Word Ministry.  Your business needs the counsel and support of a strong Word Ministry.

You need the challenge of Believing Big and Dreaming Big and attempting the Impossible.  You need to get committed to a Word Ministry.  Have you?  Will you?  If not, why not?  Who do you suppose it is that is trying to talk you out of it right now?

You need to be committed to a strong Word Church with a World Vision that has plenty of work for you to do…  Are you willing and ready to get involved?  Are you available for God to use you?
