The Season of Rebirth
August 30, 2020
As I am writing this, God has given me this song by Andra Day called “Rise Up.”
A few nights ago I had a dream where I was walking down a street with buildings on either side. The street was narrow and straight and was filled with water. As I walked down the street, the water rose higher and higher. I did not care how high the water was but still walked even though it rose higher and higher till it covered my head. I continued to walk deeper and deeper into the water and I realized I needed a breath. I breathed in air even though I was fully engulfed in the depth of the waters. Soon I wasn’t walking any longer but I began to glide deeper into the depths. I came to the bottom of the water and hit the water’s floor and transitioned into the ground beneath the water. I realized that I had swam through the waters into the ground itself. Then I kept going through the ground and emerged out of the ground only and immediately I was in the heavens peering out at the universe. It was as though I arched my back as if my head was being pulled out like a newborn baby when delivered from it’s mother. I seen the planet Saturn and other stars in the expanse in the region of the heavens. When I looked at the process it was like my body was being pulled through the water, then into the depths of it and then out of the ground with the earth pushing me out.
What I Actually Seen
What I was experiencing and seeing was the entire process of “rebirth.”
Matthew 18: 3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
We have been taught that rebirth happened in a moment. That being reborn comes first, then the process begins. But we have it backward. We cannot be reborn without process first.
What is process? a series of actions or steps taken in order to achieve a particular end.
We cannot see the kingdom of heaven, before the process, because the process is needed in order to see it. The process brings perception correction. This process helps us understand the kingdom of heaven so that we can see it. The process is what we need in order to process. Adam and Eve ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Therefore we must process this knowledge and establish that which is good and which is evil.
The kingdom of heaven is likened to a field. The field is the Word of God. The enemy plants weeds in the kingdom. However not many are able to tell the difference between the wheat and the tares. They look alike. The process reveals to us which is the Word of God and which is tares, the word of Satan. The sons of the kingdom or the sons who have become His word are the wheat and the tares are the words of the enemy or sons of the Devil. Process is needed to be able to distinguish between the two. Those who are His angels, His messengers who do His will are the ones that will gather the tares. However one cannot gather tares if you have not gone through the process. It is by rebirth that one is able to see the Kingdom of heaven, because it is the process that reveals it and those who belong to it. However, without the entire process of rebirth, we remain blind to know the difference. See Wheat and Tares
We are to teach to turn darkness to light, the difference between good and evil and the difference between clean and unclean.
Acts 26: 17 I will rescue you from your own people and from the Gentiles. I am sending you to them 18to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those sanctified by faith in Me.’
1 Kings 3:9 Give me an understanding heart so that I can govern your people well and know the difference between right and wrong. For who by himself is able to govern this great people of yours?”
The Awe-Ha™ of Rebirth:
To be reborn of God’s Holy Spirit, we must be born out of the Holy Spirit, or in other words, The Holy Spirit must provide the way to give birth to us.
John 3: 3-8 Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again2 he cannot see the kingdom of God.” 4 Nicodemus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” 5 Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.3 7 do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 the wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
What was the water?
The water signified “living water’ because I was able to breath in the breath of life. It was the water of the Holy Spirit or life-giving water. The water of life contained all scripture and words breathed and spoken out of the mouth of God. Thus the living water represented the Word of God, cleansing as one is led and pushed through the scriptures. One recognizes that cleansing is occurring when one is able to realize how wrong they were about the things of God that were misconceived and misperceived. In the dream I was going against the current. We must put ourselves into the position of humility and ask God, where have I mistaken you. Where have I agreed with the popularity of the preacher instead of you? Where have I gone against the grain of the world. When God calls you, the Holy Spirit pulls you through the water, the sea of people and immerses you into the water of God’s Word.
In the dream I ended up gliding through the water. Like a dolphin in a slipstream, I glided as it pulled and made a way for me to cruise through the water with great ease. To glide is to make a smooth continuous motion in silence or little noise. The energy that propelled me forward while being towed by the Spirit of God was the motion of the Holy Spirit pulling me through. Though I didn’t know where it was going to take me, I did not fight where He was leading me to.
John 3:8 the wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
The cleansing by the Holy Spirit begins slowly like a walk through the pages of scripture, and the more God’s Word is accepted as Truth, the easier the walk became, even to the point of gliding through the water.
The Place of Death and Decision
In the dream, as I went with the water while going against its current, and was lead to the foundation beneath the water. The current has flooded God’s voice to the point God has been muffled. The flood represents the place of testing of whether or not you will believe what God has revealed to you. It goes against the current of most things you have been taught. God has never changed, but we have changed His Word by the motives we have used to interpret His Word. The foundation beneath the water represents the firm foundation of His Word and His throne of righteousness and justice.
Psalms 29:10 The LORD sits enthroned over the flood; the LORD is enthroned as King forever.
God’s throne of righteousness and justice is set in the environment of mercy and love. In my dream the continuous motion that caused me to glide, led me into the place of death. Therefore it is beneficial for everyone to be at the foundation of His throne, for this is the place where the Holy Spirit sets you in the place of repentance. Therefore, before His throne you are fully aware of the difference between what God said and what He did not say. This is the place of true repentance. Your willingness of heart of whom you agree with will determine your choice. It is the place where you are fully aware that now that you know the difference between God’s Word and slander as your conscience testifies against you. It is the place where you are able to see what has caused you to serve the enemy. This is the place where God allows you to see yourself who you thought you were and who you are not. It is the place where God either sees you as one willing to serve with a pure heart and to be a true heir of His own. It is the place where having the True knowledge of Him, causes you to choose to deny your old life and pick up your cross or mix your old life with the cross. One decision resulting in life and the other resulting in death.
The Birth Canal-The Place of Death & Delivery
The place of death is the birth canal to the eternal life.
John 17:3 states that Eternal Life is knowing our Father in heaven. Without process we will not know Him and therefore will not see the kingdom of God. If we do not glorify Him, then we are agreeing with the death of God’s wisdom instead of our own by replacing His desires with our own. Thus by default, we honor Satan instead of God our Father.
Death is the canal place we emerge out of to see the kingdom of God. It is the chamber where we rest in the True knowledge of God. It is the place where we have the chance to rest and fully digest what He has given us, with no impurities or tares in His Word. It is the place where we prepare to arise with the knowledge of The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. It is where we know Him and are able to accurately identify Him and His Word. We have been formed and fashioned according to the plan of Salvation and are equipped to do it with the Father’s approval. The birth canal is filled with the Water of Life. We are filled with it while being carried along by it. Even the earth cries out as it helps push us out of the process with the help of the earth’s birth pangs or contractions. The dictionary says that a canal is a passage way or a watercourse. In other words it is a place that flows water through it. Better stated it is a conduit or a passageway for the flow of water.
38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” 39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.
Without the process we will not be a conduit to those who are thirsty for the Word of God. Without the rebirth process we cannot receive the Spirit of God, because to receive is to agree and do the Word as taught by the Spirit.
1 Corinthians 2:13-15
13And this is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom, but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words. 14The natural man does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God. For they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15The spiritual man judges all things, but he himself is not subject to anyone’s judgment.
Rebirth Brings Rest
In the dream upon rebirth, I was able to see the heavens. Specifically, I saw Saturn and the stars. The planet Saturn in Hebrew is seen as the planet of ‘rest.’ It is where the word Sabbath is derived from. In this rest we no longer need to be afraid of the devil and his tactics. We end up knowing who we are and whom we belong to because of what has been revealed to us through the process. We have been shown what doesn’t belong to Him and the blasphemy that had caused our break from God and our brokenness. We understand why we had to die to the root of these things, for without the death we would have never entered into His rest. The Holy Spirit has led us into All Truth and we have come to know it while revealing the lies. We have no doubts as to what God has spoken from His mouth and is backed by His intention; for in the canal we have come to identify His character. We know His interpretation of scripture instead of man’s ideas and opinions and distortions of the Lord’s Gospel.
When we go through the process of rebirth, we are formed and fashioned by the word of God. He owns our blueprint, the plans (the process)that forms us into belonging to Him alone. The process of rebirth is not to harm us but to move us along to an eternal future without false hopes. It is to put you in the position where He wants to answer your prayers.
Jeremiah 29:10 For this is what the LORD says: “When Babylon’s seventy years are complete, I will attend to you and confirm My promise to restore you to this place. 11For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a future and a hope. 12Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.
At rebirth He looks at what He has created and says “Perfect and Wonder-fully Made.” That is because we are in Him and He in us. Rebirth is the time of introduction to all creation. Just as when Jesus showed us the example of how we are to be reborn, the Holy Spirit descended on Him and the Father introduced Him and said “This is My Son, in Whom I Am Well Pleased. Those who know God will hear God introduce you as well if you are reborn. He does this so that others can hear the Father through you as they witness the Word and the Spirit create awe and wonder in those who witness your rebirth.
When we are reborn we kill off the bloodline of Satan and enter into the bloodline of the Godhead. We are then born, reborn of the Spirit of God, and wait for the redemption of our bodies. We must wait to be clothed with the body that He has prepared for us.
Romans 8:23 And we believers also groan, even though we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, for we long for our bodies to be released from sin and suffering. We, too, wait with eager hope for the day when God will give us our full rights as his adopted children, including the new bodies he has promised us.
God wants us to rise up, so that He can rise up in our hearts so that He can glorify Himself in us. He wants us to rise up so that He can get the glory from His people. We uphold His Word just as Jesus did. All creation is standing on tiptoes to see the unveiling of God’s true sons and daughters. All creation is waiting to see the ‘light show’ upon the earth. They are waiting to see those who perceive like God and agree with His rule. They are looking to see who actually sees the kingdom of God with the wisdom of God.
Romans 8:19 The entire universe is standing on tiptoe, yearning to see the unveiling of God’s glorious sons and daughters! 20 For against its will the universe itself has had to endure the empty futility resulting from the consequences of human sin. But now, with eager expectation, 21 all creation longs for freedom from its slavery to decay and to experience with us the wonderful freedom coming to God’s children. 22 To this day we are aware of the universal agony and groaning of creation as if it were in the contractions of labor for childbirth.
Will you rise up and go through the process? If you have never known what rebirth is, then you must go through the process. The process is worth seeing the Kingdom of heaven. Without the process, we cannot move mountains with Him. It is by clear thinking and understanding that we can truly believe. It removes false hopes and reveals the power that works within us. If we are not strong and courageous then, we remain double-minded, without power and unstable in ALL our ways; resulting in lives that are lost and full of fear.
It’s time to do the things of God correctly and adhering to His Word accurately. God wants us to be protected from Satan’s lies that allow Satan to keep claiming you as his own. But God wants you as His Sons so that when you cry, He will hear you like newborn baby. He wants to give you things from His Word and wants you to live with a life and mind that is harmonious with Him. God wants to pull you to Him. Just trust Him as He forms you through the process so that you can be reborn of His Spirit and you will be able to do even more in a manner that glorifies Himself. He needs you to glorify Himself. There is no greater purpose for a man other than that.
John 6:44“No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day. 45It is written in the Prophets: ‘And they will all be taught by God.’ Everyone who has heard the Father and learned from Him comes to Me
