Discussion for John 3

  • Alex on John 3:6
    Comments by Alex on John 3 : 6 Jesus said that which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the spirit is spirit thus we see 2 kinds of creatures but 1 is God ,Thats y Jesus said God is spirit and them that worship him must worship him in spirit and truth for the father seeketh such to worship him . I.E. means spirits can be born in us via his seed the Word ,which are the Children of Promise ,the H.G. plural .The FATHER seeks such to worship him .i.e the FATHER wants us to birth a new innerman which is the H.G. th spirit of truth. The Israel of God which are Spirits . The babes and sucklings Jesus spoke of . Romans 9 v 8 says that flesh and blood are not the children of God ,Its the Children of PROMISE that are counted for that GOOD SEED which is the H.G. OUR NEW INNERMAN that is born of the spirit in US, he is the Promise seed , We are just a joint heir with the H.G. That new creature , new to us but old to God simply b/c he was with God before the world was. Remember Jesus said they will bring forth things new and old outa of their treasure ( our hearts ) Which are the babes and sucklings that are gonna be born in US SINNERS . Remember a little child is gona lead them which is the H.G. Thats y the new birth is so important simply b/c the Kingdom is gona come via a birth within US . Outa of the mouths of babes and sucklings ( THE Children of PROMISE ) thou has perfected PRAISE, A lil child is gonna lead them which is the H.G. THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH that is gonna reprove the WORLD of sin and Judgement,Any time ya read of Judgement its always b/c of the H.G. AND FIRE As our God is a Consuming fire Judgement . Thats y Jesus said I come to bring Fire on the earth ,which is his baptism of fire and the H.G. WHICH IS JUDGEMENT . Who shall abide the day of his coming , Who shall stand when he appears ( 2 nd coming ) for he shall be as a REFINERS FIRE and fullers soap meaning a cleansing fire that we sooo need as our God is a consuming fire. thank ya Jesus.
  • Anthony Fidelis on John 3:6
    The flesh is everything that represents the Law of moses which was abolished by Christ and will take anyone to hell since no man can keep the Law - James 2:11 : but the spirit represents christ himself who said : the word I speak to you are spirit and Life - John 6:63 .
  • Delisa on John 3:6
    John 3:6 Highlights how very different our flesh and spirit are. We can never percieve spiritual things by any means of the flesh - we can only percieve spiritual things by receiving the word of God and having faith.
  • Jim on John 3:6
    Though the flesh will die, and we all surly will, it's comforting to know that our spirit man will live forever and one day we'll all be reunited...and God will wipe away all tears.
