“Truly, truly I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God…unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.” -John 3:3, 5
This is probably the most interesting or most challenging conversation which Jesus initiated.
Imagine the reactions of Nicodemus when he heard it. Boiling point of the mind.
In the churches worldwide nowadays we are so familiar with the concept. “Of course one must be born again to be saved, sanctified and inherit eternal life.” Yet if we look up closely this conversation, we’ll see that Jesus opened a whole new horizon and totally different dimension of our salvation-bringing the power of the eternal life here and now.
The moment we get saved we become part of something much greater than ourselves-the kingdom of God which is revealed, manifested and advanced through the Church!
Therefore, each person that gets saved has unique spiritual position in heaven and when all of the heavenly hosts look upon that person they greatly cheer and rejoice.
At the same time the principalities of darkness acknowledge the same things and they will try in every way possible to shake one’s position so the function is weakened, role diminished and calling overlooked. These spiritual forces of darkness are creating an atmosphere of pressure around the believer in order to shake his position because they know how important is the position.
It’s crucial to know and be aware that since we got saved we are transferred into a realm of spiritual laws and principles which if violated consequences follow.
The moment we come out from the domain of the Holy Spirit’s leadership we enter another domain where the principles of God’s Kingdom don’t apply.
So, the resounding conclusion is that we need to remain watchful of the Holy Spirit ‘s lead and intention. To know Him more and more. He is always our security.
