What and who we are when we are born into this world is not always who we will remain. We are born into this world spiritually dead, we have no connection with God on any level. If nothing changes we will slip off into eternity and never get to meet Jesus. It is never God’s will for any man to go to hell, He tasted death for all men. God has arranged for all men to hear the Gospel so they can choose for themselves a place in eternity. There is one exception:
Romans 2:14 When the gentiles who have not the law, do by nature the things in the law, become a law unto themselves.
Every human will have an opportunity to be saved and spend eternity in heaven. Some men will claim they never heard the Gospel. The Lord will respond to them something like this, “I sent you My Word but you would not listen to Me.” God loves us just the way we are but He loves us too much to leave us that way. No man will reach his full potential until he changes his heart convictions.
John 3:3 Jesus said, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
The kingdom of God is the place where God performs His works, it is the supernatural power of God. But many of those who are born-again never get to fully peer into this realm. They do not grow past the new birth for a variety of reasons, none of which are valid.
1 Peter 2:2 As new born babes, desire the sincere milk of the Word, that you may grow thereby.
Some folks remain babies all their lives, they do not choose to grow in Christ. They want to be treated like adults but they act like babies because they are. The entire purpose of being born-again is to become an entirely new creature. God has a place in His kingdom for all of His people, but the positions call for adults to fill those spots. It’s never hard to grow up but it can be a little difficult to act like you have.
Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, then you will prove to yourself what the good, acceptable and perfect will of God is.
We grow up in Christ when we allow God to change our way of thinking. Anyone can think natural thoughts but only a babe in Christ can think like God. When you get transformed you perceive things the way Christ perceives them. You see what He sees without judgement, it is a much different world. The more we change the greater blessing we become to people and the Lord. We can go through such a drastic transformation that the devil can’t even recognize us.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Old things are passed away, and all things are become new.
I am so relieved that all the stupid things I did in the past are wiped out and forgotten. It is very difficult to start a new life if we are saddled with baggage. God makes us new creatures for a new life. The first thing I noticed was that God began to call me son, He never used to call me anything, but now I am son.
I know the grace of God,
it came from His love for me.
Jesus was a wealthy man,
but the curse made Him poor so I could be increased with wealth.
Jesus is my Passover,
I eat His body and drink His blood.
I have His life within me,
a life of peace and abundance.

PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
