SPIRIT OF TRUTH


 STEP 5

RENEWED IN SPIRIT
RENEW A RIGHT SPIRIT WITHIN ME

 Welcome Back!

Psalms 51:10-12
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and
renew a right Spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy Holy Spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free Spirit
.

My friend, it's so nice to have you back again, I love our time together. I'm excited for you about this Step because it's about one of the most exciting things that you can imagine ... The renewal of your spirit!

You've probably heard people refer to this wonderful mystery as being "Reborn" or becoming a "Born Again Christian" and if you're not very familiar with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, then it may be a little confusing as to just exactly what that means.

TELL ME THE STORY OF JESUS

You may have seen "Revivals" where people gather and are "Saved" and it all may seem a little ... Surreal, and sometimes a little too sensational even. Why don't we look into the TRUTH about it then?

One thing you may be wondering, is whether being water baptized is the same as being reborn or born again, and is being saved even different from those things, or what?

THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WATER BAPTISM AND BEING BAPTIZED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT.

CLICK LINK BELOW TO LEARN MORE ABOUT WATER BAPTISM

WATER BAPTISM

Well, you might think of it this way ... The moment you decide to give your life to Jesus Christ is when you are saved.

John 3:16-17
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that
whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life
. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.

When you surrender your life to God and I am placed within you and commit yourself to becoming sensitive to My leadership ... That's when you're renewed in Spirit, or reborn in Spirit, or born again. You might think of being Spiritually baptized by Me as sort of an adoption, just like when a child is adopted, they become part of a new family and take on the name of that family. When you're baptized by the Holy Spirit (NOT WATER)  you're being brought into the family of Christ or the body of Christ and identified as, or named a Christian ...  

Water was used as a symbol of washing away sins, so you could think of baptism as a spiritual cleansing. The ceremony of baptism is just a symbolic celebration of your entering into the family of Christianity, which is why they refer to baptism as Christening or being Christened, but the ceremony isn't the baptism. The cleansing or renewal of your spirit is the baptism.

Let's see how Jesus Himself explained being born again, shall we?

John 3:1-8
There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto Him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a Teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. 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. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. 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.

I give birth ... Or life ... To your spirit.

Sooooooo, can you expect to have an out of body experience, or an unexplainable euphoric feeling, or fall down faint on the ground or suddenly sport a halo when you're born again? Does being reborn happen all at once at a distinct moment, and are you suddenly filled with spiritual wisdom next to that of king Solomon, or are you slowly changed? These may sound like silly questions, but things out of the ordinary have happened to people when they opened the door of their heart to Me. Let's take a look, shall we?

PENTECOST

Pentecost (which means 50th day) was when I descended upon the Apostles after Jesus' resurrection. Just ten days earlier, Jesus ascended into Heaven, but He told them ahead of time to be expecting My arrival:

Acts 1:4-5
And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith He, ye have heard of Me. For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be
baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.

So, here they were, about 120 of Jesus' disciples gathered together because it was a feast celebration, but they had the intent, also, of spreading the Gospel that Jesus taught them. Do you think they weren't a little keyed up? If you think Christians get a little enthusiastic at rallies and such in today's era, can you imagine, having actually seen Jesus in the flesh and having heard His teachings with their own ears, how excited these disciples were to get out and get the world rockin' about Salvation? Sheeez boy!

Okay imagine, now enters ME, the Holy Spirit!

Suddenly the wind kicks up ... Tremendously ... And it fills the house where they're at ... Inside!!! Next ...

Acts 2:3-4
And there appeared unto them
cloven tongues like as of fir
e, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Sounds a little more ... Spiritual ... than what most are used to in today's day and age, but it was REAL! John the Baptist prophesied about the very event!

Luke 3:16
John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: He shall baptize you with
the Holy Ghost and with
fire ...

Now, if you saw this happen at a revival today, say one night on television when you couldn't sleep at 3 a.m., you may be inclined to think it was a bunch of malarkey or that it was all staged, which some very well may be, but in many cases it IS real and most still doubt.

Guess what ... That's what happened then too!

See, at the time I first introduced myself to the Apostles and others, there were foreigners staying at Jerusalem for the feast and they all gathered together when they heard rumor of what was going on, and when they heard the disciples (who were all from Galilee) speaking in a universal language which people from every nation could understand, they became very interested, but others mocked, saying that they were just a bunch of drunks hooting and hollering ... And they may have indeed appeared that way because they were so enlivened, experiencing My power for the first time.

I ask you, is it any different than My presence at a gathering of Christians today and extraordinary things happening? Why do people believe that it happened at Pentecost, but it's hard to believe that I am still HOLY GHOSTING people now? The sad reason is that there are some people who fake it for money or attention, and that makes even the real thing seem in-credible. You'll just have to decide when it's real and when it isn't. Miracles can happen ... And they do.

 John 14:12
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father.

ON THE OTHER HAND

I appeared with fire at Pentecost ... Yet you'll read that thousands upon thousands received Me in other ways, some simply accepting Me in their hearts, some after hearing a man of God preach the Gospel, some after the laying on of hands, and in Paul's case, just for having reached the time of his calling.

The point is ... Relax.

If you don't speak in tongues or find a flame resting on you when you invite Me to infuse your life with the kind of spiritual fire that lights you up to glorify God, that doesn't mean you did something wrong, or that it's not real, or that you're not really saved yet.

It only means that it's different for different people.

Take a look at what happened to Paul when he received Me. First, he was blinded for three days, then a man named Ananias, who was a disciple of the Lord was sent to him:

Acts 9:17-18
And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and
be filled with the Holy Gho
st. And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.

 Now, if anyone tells you that you must have some kind of spectacular experience in order to become a spiritual servant of any value, just tell them about Paul ... Probably one of the most spiritual men of God in history, was blinded for the occasion and there is no mention of these wild things happening when he received Me, except that He could then SEE!

So as YOU CAN SEE, becoming renewed in spirit is a vastly different experience for different individuals. Perhaps it may take you a period of time to develop a renewed spirit. Everyone is unique. Don't compare. When a child is born, you're elated at the miracle of the child, the delivery will soon be forgotten, but the health and happiness and growth of the child is what's important. Some children learn to walk before they're a year old, and others, not until they're much older.

TRANSFORMATION

What can you expect when you're renewed in spirit? You can expect the desire for an increased awareness of the presence of God in your life. You're not living for yourself anymore, you understand.

YOU GET IT

You don't belong to you ... You surrendered that. Your hopes are different, your dreams are different, your intents are different, your motives are different, your mind is different, your opinions are different ... You are a new spirit, You're not the old you ... Remember:

John 3:6-8
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and
that which is born of the Spirit is spi
rit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. 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.

Wave bye-bye to the old you! You'll begin to depend less on what you've learned from the world and from mankind, and more on Me to help you discern spiritual things.

Ezekiel 36:26-27
A new heart also will I give you, and
a new Spirit will I put within y
ou: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put My Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes, and ye shall keep My judgments, and do them.

During your spiritual transformation, you'll realize that you cannot go on living the way you used to, though as Paul explained there will be LOTS of lures.

Your lifestyle will slowly begin to reflect that you are reborn in spirit, and no longer a worldly creature.

It is a ONE DAY AT A TIME change

You will fall, but if you repent and grab my hand ... I will lift you up.

But slowly you will experience a CHANGE in your choices.

YOU WILL STOP LOOKING INTO THE REAR VIEW MIRROR AND BECOME A NEW MAN
(OR WOMAN)

Philippians 3:13
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before ...
Colossians 3:10
And have put on the new ma
n, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created him.

Ephesians 4:23-24
And that ye
put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
 

You learned about Me working in you and also working through you. Another way that I work in you is transforming you so that people recognize by your fruits that you represent Jesus Christ.

Galatians 5:22-23
... the
fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance ...

You have a new cause ... A new purpose ... A new attitude. And I know you'll want to jump in with both feet and save the world tomorrow morning bright and early, but don't forget the world isn't as receptive as you are. Don't lose your enthusiasm, and also, don't become impatient with them. I'll teach you what you need to know.

IT TAKES ONE TO KNOW ONE

You've probably heard the saying "Birds of a feather, flock together." Don't expect people who are not spiritual or don't have the desire to become spiritual to understand you. They will treat you like you are from a different world, and you are ... Well, actually, a different realm. I think that soon you'll find that My friends will become your friends. Edify one another and help each other to stay on the right path in life.  

1 Corinthians 2:9-16
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him. But God hath revealed them unto us
by His Spiri
t: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are Spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.

 
There are so many things that you are going to want to know about, and the more spiritual you become, the more you will understand. If you become frustrated because your spiritual growth is not happening as fast as you'd like it to, again, please be patient and trust Me.
 
Psalms 27:14
Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

Psalms 37:34
Wait on the LORD, and keep His way ...

 
 I can see from perspectives that you cannot see from. God's perspective is eternity ... From eternity, the things that seem important today, don't amount to much. Don't let go of My hand. Talk to Me. Ask Me things ... Keep on asking ... Be curious about your faith ... Investigate it ... Learn ... Share with others. I will help you. I have a specific purpose for you, and My timing is perfect, so when you think things are moving too slow ... Wait ... Because God is moving everything into its proper place. Don't be impatient ... Travel steadily along His path.
 
Can't wait to talk with you again, dear friend!
 
BELOW IS WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO DO TO COMPLETE THIS RENEW A RIGHT SPIRIT WITHIN ME STEP

 


STEP #5

To complete this renew a right spirit within me step ask God, by the Holy Spirit, to renew a right spirit within me. Ask Him what characteristic you have that He would like to see replaced with a new one, or what habit you have that He would like replaced with a different one. Listen for His answer. When you receive His answer, write a pledge in your Personal Spiritual Journal to surrender the old, and replace it with the new. Don't forget to thank Him for helping you to realize how to live closer to the center of God's will.
