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.
Everyone who is born again must be able to see the Kingdom. Our daily bread is not the food we eat physically but spiritual. Our new birth is defeated and limited with the knowledge of the Kingdom. The essence of Jesus coming is that men might be part of the Kingdom. We need a garment in the Kingdom. To be born is to turn flesh into spirit for the Kingdom is of the Spirit. God is interested in changing our carnality to spirituality; he wants us to partake in the fellowship of the Spirit. A spirit is not mindful of the carnal nature but its own word. Except the church is cleansed of water he might not come into the next face of the Spirit. We might not involve in politics but our act can be political.
That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
Proclaiming a man and woman in church does not necessarily make them one. Oneness is a process to journey to, there cants be ones without the washing of the water and the blood. He has joined himself to Christ which made them one. God is vast in making it one. Jesus only owns the secret of oneness. God made Israel a specimen because there is unity in oneness but when God chose a plan they didn’t do his Will so he handed them over to their enemy. God is so interested in churches in Nigeria so he won’t leave Nigeria and he won’t let Nigeria leave him. The Son of man is in heaven he came to reveal the invisible will to man. Colossians 1:9, ‘For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
It’s God’s intention to have the knowledge of his Will. What is moving is his Will, what is advancing is his Will, and we can’t be filled without his Will. God wants us to be filled with the knowledge of his Will in all knowledge and spiritual understanding. The river that passed through the earth is divided. When we drink the water, we drink the nation. God wants to wash us from our nation unto his nationhood. Revelation 22:1, ‘And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. When the river becomes a crystal river, it becomes one. National blindness has blinded our eyes in Nigeria from good to evil. We are children of destiny here raised by God to bring down his Will on earth but what exists in our entire nation today is idolatry.
Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
We have our own land which is in the spirit where he is bringing us to. God scatters his people who are outside his Will; his intention is that we will be washed in the water to bring up his holiness,
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
The way to love your wife is to sanctify your wife for the woman was made for the man. He is to structure her in his own way. Cleansing by the washing is love and this describes how men should love. The process of cherishing and nourishing is what it takes for washing. After Esther was washed, she appeared and her appearance pleased the king.
And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto Jerusalem; Thy birth and thy nativity is of the land of Canaan; thy father was an Amorite, and thy mother an Hittite.
God was telling them here mystery of their own nationhood. There is water that makes the Amorite nation and Hittites nation etc. God has dealt with the human nature in us and we must be ready to show concern to those who are perishing. The things we need are not far from us; they are written for us to make profit with but we have seen it to be for angels. He has something different and better for us.
1 Peter 3:3
Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
The water is what brought them to excellent ornament; they have been adorned on the inside. It is an adornment that is precious in the sight of God. That is why if a woman is not concerned about being beautiful, something is wrong with her. We can’t live an excellent life except we are washed. We need to be washed and conquered from our nation to get a new identity. All we want to see is to see Christ in all men. 2 Corinthians 5: 17,’ Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
We believe for every hopelessness, there’s hope, therefore we find mercy to yield ourselves for washing by the water of cleansing. Amen!
