Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.” “How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!” Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spiritgives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’ (John 3:3-7)
This Week’s Prayer
Father, it is in the name of the LORD YeHoWsHua* (Jesus Christ) we pray. Oh Father God, hear our prayer in Jesus’ name. We want to be saved in accordance with Your divine will and instructions for salvation. We know that salvation only comes from YOU! No religious institution or clergy can confer salvation upon us. No human agency has the power to save our souls. Our salvation lies solely in You. You said in John 3:3-5 that we would not be able to see Your kingdom until we are born again. And You said that we must be born of the water and of the Spirit in order to enter into the Kingdom of God. Lord, we desire to see and enter into Your kingdom. We desire to be born again. As we die to disobedience and rebellion and submit ourselves for baptism (burial) in a watery grave in the name of Christ Jesus, we ask You to breath into us Your blessed Holy Spirit of promise that our salvation will be sealed unto the day of redemption. Give us the PRECIOUS HOLY GHOST that will teach us, guide us, keep us and help us to mature into saints of the Most High God. In the matchless name of our Lord and savior YeHoWsHua* (Jesus the Christ), Amen.

Footnote: *The Hebrew spelling of the name of Christ is used in this prayer for educational purposes. Yehowshua is often shorten to Yeshua but out of respect for my Lord I chose to use the spelling of His proper name to demonstrate that His name is above every name and that even the spelling of His name is relative to the spelling of The Father’s name – remembering that there were not any vowels in the Hebrew alphabets. Thus, YHWH (Yahweh) and YeHoWsHua (Yahweh is salvation) are grammatically and uniquely related. Notice the Y-H-W-H in both the Father and the Son.
