TOPIC: You Are Born By The Word (Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministries Thursday, 5 April 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 John 3:2; 1 John 5:1
“Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.” – James 1:18
A Christian is born by the word. He is the offspring of God’s word, in just the same way Jesus is revealed to us as the word of God made flesh (John 1:14). God gave birth to us through His word. So, as Jesus came forth of the word, we also are given birth to in the realm of the spirit to be like Him through the word.
1 Peter 1:23 says, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” As a Christian, your life is the life of the word; you hail from the word. This happened when you received the word of God, the gospel of Christ’s salvation, into your heart to be born again. The promised eternal life was imported to your spirit, and the corruptible human life was supplanted with God’s divine life.
Christ has taken up His abode in you, and you’ve become one spirit with Him. No wonder the Bible says you are a partaker of divine nature (2 Peter 1:4), for as Jesus is –the word made flesh –even so you have been made an offspring of the word. You became an extraordinary person when you got born again. Don’t limit yourself to ordinary things. Let the word of God in you produce amazing fruits, so that your heavenly Father will be glorified.
The Fire Scripture for today classifies us in the present, as children of God by adoption in the covenant of grace through faith in Jesus Christ and also by the testimony of the Spirit. In the future, when the Lord appears, we shall be like Him in His glorious body in immortality, free from all imperfection. What glorious present and future we have in Christ.
You become an extraordinary person when you get born again.
God’s word in you shall produce fruits of righteousness.
1. Heavenly Father, thank You for the entrance of Your word which has enlightened and catapulted me unto higher realms of glory today, in the name of Jesus.
2. I thank You for the great love You’ve bestowed upon me wherewith I’m qualified to be a partaker of the divine nature, in the name of Jesus.
3. I go forth today conscious of my identity as an offspring of the word with the incorruptible life of God in my spirit, in the name of Jesus.
4. O Lord, open my eyes of understanding as I study Your word, in the name of Jesus.
5. My heart is open to Your word, in the name of Jesus.
6. My spirit is sensitive to You, O Lord, in the name of Jesus.
7. Every satanic plan to keep me busy and distracted from God’s word, I destroy it, in the name of Jesus.
