If you have never struggled with an old flesh (habit, attribute, act, behavior etc) I bet if you can preach the message of the cross properly. If you have never tasted an influencing force that’s making Christian journey a living hell, taking all your liberty in Christ that you don’t even know if you are in faith or not. No one will be able to explain what brother Paul faced that made him to cry out. I want to speak on how the power of redemption separated the works of the soul from the power of the spirit man.
Am sure you knew by now the story of how Adam fell and what died in him. Adam was only not active in the spirit i.e his consistency with God developed a problem. You will noticed God never breathe the breathe of life into anybody apart from Adam which means the law of increase and multiply affected also the reproduction of soul and spirit. What am saying is this whenever a human gives birth there is a reproduction of his soul and spirit. So whatever the state of that human soul and spirit is, the new born baby inherits that.
The birth of Jesus
The birth of Jesus wasn’t hidden according to the rule given by God “Let every creation reproduce according to its kind”. So if God was to rescue humans he has to reproduce according to his kind i.e Spirit because God is spirit, secondly a savior (Jesus) must come with a living spirit for the spirit of everyman is dead and that’s why the holyghost had to be the father of the birth of Jesus. So as a believer you must understand why God is so much interested in restoring the spirit man.
What God looks for in us?
David only ask if there be any seed left in Saul’s lineage that he can bless. The requirement was the seed because that you look like someone doesn’t make you a seed. Would you as a parent accept a child based on appearance or maybe that he talks like you? You see that you have the signs of Jesus or did his miracles or look gently like a dove doesn’t make Jesus to accept you. Am sure there are lots of people that look like mephiboseth but they aren’t a seed of Jonathan. That he was paralyzed doesn’t negate the truth of his bloodline.
Mat 18:8 KJV
Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.
As a minister in the kingdom if you are not careful you will mistaken someone that has two feet for a kingdom seed and cast down a maimed whose only lost his two feet has a non kingdom. How many people are judging kingdom seed because they have lost their feet or hands? Except you understand the seed principle of the kingdom you will mistake many people to kingdom seed. You don’t look like a family to belong to them yet your character might be an issue to your parent but you are accepted because you are a seed.
Becoming a kingdom seed
Jesus speaking “That which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born spirit is spirit”. John 3:6
And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. John 17:19
For if we have planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection. Rom 6:5
The background issues of many believers are answered by these scriptures above. As much as been born again is as simple as believing in Jesus by confession yet there is a process of rebirth, reproduction of the spirit man, moving from death to life. Paul speaking that word of truth that ye heard and believed and hath sealed with the holyghost Eph1:13. So what gets a man born again is not confession rather the spoken word of truth. So the quality of that spoken word guarantees the proper reproduction of the spirit man. And if there be a fault or corruption in the spirit man of the preacher then the spoken word is faulty or corrupted which makes the process of regeneration or reproduction of the unborn again spirit man that hears the corrupted words become faulty. Backup scriptures John17:19 and Jesus said it is the spirit that quickeneth the flesh profiteth nothing: the words I speak unto you they are spirit and they are life. This simply means your spirit and my spirit is the womb/vessel for the reproduction of another born again spirit while the holyghost quicken the pregnancy. Look at this And behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb and bring forth a son and shalt call his name Jesus luk1:31 and that which is conceived in her is of the holyghost Mat1:20. Confession therefore does not get anyone born again rather on what words (believe) did you make your confession. That’s why many Christians do not receive the holyghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues because there is no verification of the spoken words on which they made their confession. Being born again actually happens when the holyghost bruise upon the face of the waters of the word of God being preached by a verified or sanctified spirit. When you make confession without the presence of the holyghost you will not receive a dine of evidence of speaking in tongues. When this mystery was hidden to us we thought infilling of the spirit is the same with being born again. Both are completely different but were mixed up to support those that confessed Jesus without evidence of speaking in tongue. Now does a new born baby cries or not? If a new born baby doesn’t cry what does it mean? Being born again is a new body not infilling, it’s a quickening or awakens into the realms of God, it has nothing with infilling. How many people go to confess on the pulpit without the presence of the holyghost to confirm the words? Very few preachers are spiritual mothers who possess womb that the holyghost can impregnate, when you pass through the womb of mothers you are bound to be a spiritual giants by default, you don’t struggle to understand the scriptures nor roar like the lion of the tribe of Judah. We have reduced this things to mere theology, far beyond is the message of the cross. Jesus himself taught me these things and am sent to tell many that Jesus said except a seed is of my kind will never reign with him. The bedrock of this teaching is who gave birth to your spirit?
