True Reformation pt.7: Except a man be Born Again, he cannot See...(SABBATH BIBLE STUDY 3-15(2018) (John 3:3)JS LOWTHER, June 28, 2018
Part of the True Reformation series, preached at a Sabbath service
Except a man be Born Again, he cannot See... (JOHN 3:3)
In this part 7 of our study of True Reformation we are going to see this return from the curse, unto a sanctified walk: Our Lord taught a very important concept which is often times confused with Eternal life (as is salvation or being saved), and that is the concept of being born again. The Next message, part 8 will focus specifically on John 3, yet for now let it be considered: Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. (Joh_3:3), this verse only deals with one's ability to see 'the kingdom of God', that is God's rule, and God's sovereignty; now one who truly see's it will do all he can to enter if he truly wishes to be saved. But technically, one may see a thing and never enter in, they may consider that the God of the bible is the LORD of all and able to save or condemn the soul in this life and in that which is to come, but they may never walk with God. They like a corrected child may stair at His father deciding if wants to obey, realizing the person of God but not ready to listen to his words of correction, that is to submit to the reasonable service of God, it is at this point further faith is decided, the spirit has brought sight to the mind, but the mind has not yet moved and perhaps never will?
Consider again, the cord created by Grace, Faith and Sanctification:
Grace is the Faithfulness of YHWH God to forgive His Covenant People, which is a gift of mercy bestowed upon them, not of works, nor anything one may do, but it is a free gift which is offered while we are dead in sin to stand up before a Holy and terrible God.
Faith is the Belief or Trust we have in YHWH God, the God of the Bible. the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is God's Word made flesh; Faith acknowledges the Grace which is offered by YHWH Alone for forgiveness and redemption through Christ as revealed by the Word and it's hearing, and that Faith Trusts that the Law of God is perfect, that the Word of God is True and Righteous altogether.
Sanctification is the Holiness of God which comes by the Holy Spirit who is the Spirit of Truth, Truth which comes from God's Creative and eventual Word as well and in conjunction with God's written Word as found in the Bible. The Truth of God's Word, containing His Law, Teaches Christian's by the Spirit of God which works through His Word the Logic of God and thus the Reasonable Service of Christians to walk as Christ by the rule of God's Law for Sanctification or Holiness.
