Another Look @ John Chapter 3 - Part 1

Dearly Beloved,

I perceive the Lord is opening ancient gates/portals of understanding pertaining to The Kingdom unto his saints, therefore the likes of the following/attached transcribed message that challenged my perception of God, His Life & Kingdom.

Pls notify me of your willingness to receive some of such transcribed ministrations from Eternal Glorious Fountain Ministries (an itinerary teaching ministry) where I have been privileged to have drank from in the last decade.

Do have a Graced Reading!

Jn. 3:3-5 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. 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? 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
·         The first born again mentioned here pertains to the quickening experience of the HUMAN SPIRIT at new birth (Acts 2:21/Eph.2:1) for the sole Purpose of SEEING THE KINGDOM, while the second experience relates to the SOUL with a purpose of ENTERING THE KINGDOM

Acts 2:47 …And the Lord added to the church (i.e. salvation of the human spirit) daily such as should be saved (i.e. salvation of the soul)

Acts 13:48 … and as many as were ORDAINED/CALLED to Eternal Life (i.e. end of faith/faith of the Son) BELIEVED (i.e. beginning of faith/faith towards God)

·      We can see here that, contrary to the prevailing mindset, the reason for the new birth is not about ‘making it to the present heaven but about ‘making it to the kingdom of God. It’s about our seeking the kingdom first while we are here on earth and all we do at the expense of this remain a distraction, no matter the results that come with such. 

·         By virtue of our translation at new birth, our human spirit became an entity of the kingdom, but our soul was ONLY given the potential to SIGHT the kingdom and then ultimately yield to the demands of ENTERING IT. 

·         The first Born again experience is only a Foretaste of a higher unknown experience that is superior and everlasting i.e. Entering The Kingdom
·         The Day Enlightenment of The Eyes of Your heart begins, that’s the day You Would Realize That The Actual Purpose of The New Birth Is To See The Kingdom - Eph. 1:17-18

·         The Lord Jesus talked about two New Births in Jn. 3. The born again experience (an event) that gives you the POTENTIAL TO SEE OR PERCEIVE THE KINGDOM and being born of water & the spirit (an ongoing process) that administers ACCESS/ENTRANCE INTO THE KINGDOM – 2Pet. 1:11

·   Elijah, John the Baptist, e.t.c all made it to heaven, but didn’t inherit the kingdom life

·       Elijah made heaven without Jesus dying on the cross, so making it to heaven isn’t a New Testament goal or promise.

·         If the least in the kingdom (i.e. he that attains the kingdom life) is better than John, then there is something about the kingdom that the Lord would have us comprehend while on earth.

·         Your human spirit got into heavenly places (Eph. 2:6) when you got born again, but your soul didn’t but would only if it Overcomes The World (Rev. 3:21)

·         Angels are in heaven but can’t enter into the kingdom of God because they can’t partake in the process of being BORN OF GOD like the Son was, like man is called to be – Heb. 1:5/1Pet. 1:23

·   Many have gotten into heaven and not participated in God’s kingdom, because of a lack of perception of how God’s kingdom operates while on earth.

·      John’s message was that ‘the kingdom of God is at hand’. The Jews missed it by thinking that the kingdom would follow that earthly pattern, and since that day, the kingdom suffered violence because fallen spirits made up their mind to change how they dominate men and so that mankind would never have a chance to consider entering the kingdom

·         The preciousness and degree of what you are looking for would determine the tribulation God would endorse to come your way - 1 Cor. 10:13

·     Satan has designed a life that can hinder the comprehension needed to see the kingdom and that is the life we are meant to overcome!

·       The Wisdom of The World is a system that kills and Satan is the prince of it. Jn. 14:30

·      We were all raised by a worldly system and became worldly (i.e one with the world) so God had to love us in that state to reach us. For God So loved ‘them that loved the world’, that he sent his only begotten Son…. – Jn.3:16

·      The New Testament commandment is to teach men how to love something that is real or true

·     What makes man to perish is the love of the world! The curriculum of believing and Enduring To The End is therefore designed to stop men from perishing – Heb. 10:22

·         When you believed at new birth, eternal life was introduced into your spirit to slow down the course or pace of perishing. There are many other BELIEVING programs which we must subscribe to that would lead to KNOWLEDGE as we journey to the end of faith. This is the secret of escaping the corruption (perishing) that worketh in the world through lust – 2Pet. 1:4

·     A saint is someone that is anointed/separated so that the software of death can be annihilated in his soul.

·      When a saint is feeding from the lamb (Christ), he stops perishing because the lamb’s words are preservatives 

·         When a soul is leprous/sticks, God can’t allow such to come near him, so God said, take Christ first, get your spirit separated and your heart sprinkled and mind washed! – Heb. 10:22/Eph. 5:26/Rom. 12:1
·         They shall speak with new tongues – Mk. 16:17 i.e. they would have access to speak mysteries which their mind won’t understand, they would talk to God supernaturally

·         When you are speaking in tongues, your understanding (heart/mind) of such a high communion is unfruitful because your spirit is participating/talking with God

·         Our infirmity according to Rom. 8 is that ‘we know not’. We have an inability TO KNOW and are therefore left at the mercy of the Holy Spirit
·  When you breakthrough in the spirit, your mind would be able to comprehend kingdom things

·      New birth equips you with the potential to comprehend the kingdom and next level is to SEE, which this is the job of the 5 fold ministry, to change the sight of believers which was formerly under the control of the kingdom of darkness – Acts. 26:18

·         Not all preachers have been delivered from the power of Satan. You may be physically well and still be under Satan’s dominion because of his laws of Sin & Death in the  heart and mind, which is higher than demonical operation. Fallen spirit (Eph. 6:12) supervise the power of Satan upon men and rule men neatly Without Them Knowing

·         When You Begin To See How Men Can Live Differently From How Man Has Been Raised To Think Or See, Then You Have Been Engaged In The Process Of Being Set Free Indeed – Jn. 8:32

·         When you are wrestling dominion from Satan, then you have begun to walk in the Spirit, walk against the course of the world, disobey fallen spirit and have therefore engaged the warfare of Eph. 6:12.

·       Believing gets your spirit born again, but turning (Acts 26:18/Dan. 12:3) takes place afterwards by the unveiling of Christ to the soul through he hearing of a higher/deeper faith.

   The kingdom is not in meat and drink, but RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE & JOY, WHICH ALL MEANS NOTHING TO MANY BELIEVERS!

·         ­­­If preachers keep preaching the carnal/natural life (what man would eat etc…), then purpose is defeated. Preachers are called to give life by unveiling the life of the kingdom.

·         An evil eye (Matt.6:22-23/Mk. 7:22) is that which was given to man to seek the fallen life, therefore another eye need to be given to you. Then motive for living would change.

·         There are very many messages being preached that isn’t dealing with the love of the world in the hearts (souls) of men

·   Believers needs to engage the lights of the epistles that turn from the power of Satan unto God, from darkness unto light – Acts 26:17-18

·       God needs to change your sight to see eternal things

·    There is no SEE and an ultimate ENTRANCE into God’s power except the eyes of our heart/understanding is opened. According to Eph. 1:17-18, Knowing God or receiving the ability to look at him is a powerful experience, it pertains to the salvation of the Soul

·   All the hope of man that the world can identify/hype with is actually nothing. Solomon called it Vanity! There is a hope that God has called man to subscribe to, which is his true future of man in Christ Jesus

·    The power of the world to come (Mk. 10:30/Heb. 2:5/6:5) is that which wants to work in our favor to bring us into God’s hope for man. Such power does not work according to our prayer life, but because we are heirs of salvation. When you haven’t known it, it is already working, how much more when we begin to know it…

·  It’s the power of the kingdom and you can’t live it without being empowered by the Gospel of Christ (Rom. 1:16)

·  Entrance into the kingdom is entrance into The Power of God packaged in the Gospel/Epistles – Rom. 1:16

·      The power of God is that which keeps us and we need to KNOW IT. We only BELIEVE IT

·         1Pet. 1:5 … who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

·    Jesus operated with a Lesser Power while on earth, so he had to sow himself to get an Eternal Power. He was sown in weakness, but raised in power. We also must follow this path. 1Cor.15:43

·         When you access the kingdom, angels would commence activity upon you and your household, you would become a kingdom embassy upon which angels would find a rest, would be ministering regularly. Jn. 1:51/Matt.13:32
