Nicodemus did not understand when he spoke to Jesus.
"You must be born again, o one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit" John 3:5
Veiled Nicodemus defended Jesus before the Sanhedrin, took perfume to bury the Lord. But we do not know if born again. We do not know if he has integrated the 120 people in the Upper Room.
What I think is that the word of God is living and active. I cried the presence of the Holy Spirit in the mighty name of Jesus and was born again. His spirit came to me as in the Upper Room, and the Spirit dwells in me. I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision. In His strength and power, His glory shone on me and everything around me. Because I was born again, I went down to the water to bear witness to Jesus Christ. I was born again, undergoing a transformation to a new life. I began to know God in a presence that could call God or celestial harmony. Love, love of God, wrapped my being in circumstances seemingly impossible salvation. The Lord gave me her love to know and love His Word. I was born again because his spirit forged in my being a union and likeness of Christ who makes me beloved son, and belong to the family of God's children. It gives me joy that this process you have it, or you can have it.
Jesus Christ today declare to my brethren that You are the supreme love of my life!
"The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going." John 3:8.
The wind blew the Holy Spirit, would blow, within the structures of the Catholic religion. He blew where he lived, in a cassock, white Roman collar, clerical, amid idolatrous images and sacraments and signs without grace, without faith. There in a parish liturgies and ceremonies filled.
Spirit strong wind blew and took me out, I was released, broke a thousand chains and set me free. He blew the Spirit did not know where he came from or where he was going, or where come.
Soon they appeared the signs and signs of the times. It appeared the new preaching we call today, Evangelism anointed with power. Following the Spirit convicted them of sin, repentance came to the thousands who came, experienced forgiveness and the Lord gave us the gift of physical healing. Heal the sick who come in droves. Miraculous healings. When the charismatic group run out of the city to the mountain, about pelonas hills, arid, next to a stinking dump, the Spirit did not stop, more powerfully wrought miracles and wonders.
The Spirit did not blow in the large and rich traditional places of worship, blew in a humble and secluded, as in the manger in Bethlehem where Jesus was born in a stable that smelled. The Lord unleashed a glittering revival here in Atizapan and El Nogal, Atlacomulco, Edo. Mex. But the most wonderful thing was, take off his cassock full and complete sense, renounce the doctrine, customs, laws, traditions and Catholic structures.
My walk today is faith. God has given me his holiness. "Christ I love you, I adore you, thank you for the love you give me, I also love you."
