Die to Live and Live to Die
May 8, 2019
I Am the Way, the Truth and the Life – ALL must go through Me if they are to be received by My Father. How do you go through Me? By believing and receiving Me as your Lord and Savior – to believe and receive is to live in faith who I am and what I have done – I have given new life, in exchange for the old. In this new life, no longer are there chains to the human flesh or where it (your flesh) has voice that you must obey. These are no longer your life – they are dead for all who will bury them in the grave I have made for them. For it is no longer you who lives – but I who lives in you, and no longer is your master the devil.
My life is lived in all who are willing to die. It must be so. You cannot have it both ways, to live as never been born of the Spirit – is death, and at enmity with God. Understand that anyone who lives for themselves, becomes My enemy! And why many live defeated lives! The devil is often rebuked, but I say what needs rebuking is one’s own flesh! There is only one life to live and is Mine and can be lived only when there is death of your old life.
I call all those to follow Me in what I have done and to die to live and live to die. Only then, will you walk in My Spirit and power and begin to change into My Image and likeness.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6
Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.” Luke 9:23
