THE BEGINNING OF THE WAY PT 1
Have you received the Master ~Lord Yahshua Messiah (Christ) as your personal Saviour?
You have made the decision to follow Him? That’s wonderful!
We rejoice with you, dear believer, and the angels in Heaven also rejoice, for this is no small decision you have made! It is the greatest decision you could ever make
YAHWEH the Almighty Living Elohim (God) has been graciously working in your life to bring you to His Way
Your decision has undoubtedly been the turning point of your life, and now you are discovering that everything seems to be new
That is a good sign, for the Scriptures tell us that when we receive Messiah, everything does become new
“Therefore, if anyone is in Messiah, he is a new creation; the old things have passed away; see, all things have become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)
THE NEW BIRTH
When one repents of sin and receives Messiah as his/hers Saviour, he/she experiences what is known as “the new birth.” This is the spiritual birth by which one is born into the family of Elohim (God), and enters the Kingdom of Light
It is also called Regeneration
Before your new birth experience, you were “dead in trespasses and sins.” (Ephesians 2:1) You may have been religious, but you did not have spiritual life
That is why you did not care deeply for the things of Elohim, and you did not know Him in a personal way
But now you have been made alive, and your spirit pulsates with desire to know the Lord and to feed upon Him
The new birth experience is so necessary - for everyone, for, as the Master Yahshua Messiah (Lord Jesus Christ) said; “This is the solemn truth I tell you; no-one can see the kingdom of YAHWEH unless he is born again.” (John 3:3) The new birth is the beginning of the WAY.
