Born of the Water; and the Spirit

Users who viewed this discussion (Total:0)

Greetings in the Lord Jesus.
I can only testify of what happened to me and what the Holy Spirit has ministered to me.
We will be held accountable for what we know.
Where much has been given; much will be required. Amen.

Born of the Water:
Standing under a large tent at revival, I experienced the first open eyed vision from God.
It was closing alter call and everyone stood with hands in the air and eyes closed.
I felt something hitting the palms of my hands and my face. It felt like rain.
My clothes began to feel heavy, like if I was standing in the rain.
I felt my hands and face. They felt wet. I could feel moisture running down my face.
I opened my eyes and saw a "white rain" falling out of the tent canopy.
I was soaked in His sprinkling of rain; which is His blood that was shed for me, purifying and cleansing me; being born of the Water

Born of the Spirit:
I was confessing to God one morning, "Lord, you are in control."
I heard the Holy Spirit ask me, "Would you die for me?"
I said, "Yes, my Lord. You did it for me."

Immediately before my eyes I saw a black sleeve, and a gun was in the hand.
I was shot through the heart at point blank range.
The physical impact, from the spiritual shot, took me backwards 3 steps.
I was going down. God held me up.
I am holding my chest, realizing, I can't breath.
Three hard gasps for air, my breathing was restored whole.

I stand there rattled at what had just taken place.
I said, "Lord, it is an honor."
I had no fear through any of it. God is in control.
I was baptized in the Holy Ghost: By Him, For Him. Amen.

If you are indeed "born of the Water and the Spirit", you are a servant with a testimony.
You carry the testimony of Jesus Christ within you.
Only Jesus can do this for you; not man.
Do you believe in the Son of God.
Know ye not, that we have been given the power to become the sons and daughters of God. Amen.

TESTIFY; ye children of God; the devil (spirit of fear) has shut us up long enough.

Testify; Spiritual blessings and awakenings, that only come from God and is given you; not that you can buy a new car, pay ridiculous payments and say "God blessed me with a new car." If God blesses you with a new car, it is paid for and the keys are freely handed to you. Amen. When God blesses you; it is freely handed to you. Amen. It is His grace and liberty; not ours.

ALL praise, honor, and glory be to God. Amen.


John 3 :5-6
Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. 6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit[b] gives birth to spirit.
  • Born of water = This is your physical birth from your mother (6 Flesh gives birth to flesh)
  • Born of spirit = This is you second or spiritual birth from the Holt Spirit indwelling you (Spirit[b] gives birth to spirit)
Greetings in the Lord Jesus;
Before He sprinkled me with water; I had no understanding or knowledge or wisdom. I was simply doing what everyone else does.
Show up to church, sit on the bench, smile a lot, pretend I am perfect, and go home.
Until I confessed to God, one Sunday heading home; "Lord, is this it? This can not be all there is. I know there is more. If I am to follow you, I want to do it just like you, because I know you did it right."
I did not have a clue what I had confessed to him. Amen

I remember after He sprinkled me with water, soaking me to the bone, I had this most amazing peace about me.
I felt such comfort and love.
I, also, started having more visions and spiritual dreams. The Word began to speak to me a bit.
However, I still was not aware of what it meant to follow in His steps. Amen.

Then, came the baptism of the Holy Ghost.
Oh my, the things I have learned. The Spirit ministers to me almost daily.
I know now, what I had confessed to Him.
He introduced Himself to me and unveiled the scriptures showing me, the way, the truth, and the life. Amen.
So many more visions came and still coming, spiritual dreams and awakenings.
Now, the house made with hands, calls me the devil. And God allows me to see into the spiritual realm as black veils are being placed over worldly preachers, who believe not.

To each their own; but I would recommend; LEAN NOT TO THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING; for you will lead you wrong. Amen.
I remember when I thought the same as you; (water baptism is being born in the flesh)
Very sorry to hear that my testimony offends you. But, I stand in all good conscience with God.
As I hear, I speak. As I see, I testify. As I am ministered unto, I minister.
What He has given me in darkness; I speak in light.
What I hear in my ear; I preach from the roof tops.
If God be for me, who can be against me. Amen.

All praise, honor, and glory be to God. Amen.
