Flying By the Seat of my Pants
Why is it (merely a rhetorical question) that as soon as God does anything in engaging us, making Himself known to us that we immediately try and make it fit into a natural mind set?
Jesus said to Nicodemus, “You must be born again,” to which Nick says, “Are you saying I have to go back into my mother’s womb and be born all over again?”
Or when Jesus engaged the Samaritan woman, here is some of that conversation. “Our fathers worshiped in this mountain and you people say that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship." Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe Me, an hour is coming when neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father.”You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. "But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.”God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."
Is there now through the re-birthing a “new me, a new you,” that most of us are totally unfamiliar with, and yet this “new” person we have become is in sync with knowing and hearing the voice of this living God who has become our Father?
The natural minded man does not receive the things of God, hear or understand this reality that has invaded us in being re-birthed.
Without a continued revelation (man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that flows from the heart of our God and Father) is it any wonder that what Jesus is building (His church) has been through the carnal natural minded man turned into a grotesque and hideous monstrosity that so many flock to.
