MESSAGE "Transformers" Part 1


"You are being transformed.  You are changing.  The old is becoming new.  It is a metamorphosis.


Just as the butterfly emerges from the cocoon, so is the new birth.  As you come out from your *old self *,  you then will begin to soar.  You will be lifted high on the currents of Heaven's air.

The new birth is fragile at first ... vulnerable ... easily broken.  Yet, it (also) is free! ... fresh! ... bold! ... fearless! ... full of hope! ... seeing for the first time! ... hearing in a new way! ... having brand new hopes, dreams, visions!

The *new man* (new person) has begun a virgin journey, as yet unknown (to him.)  He has *no clue* of what will be ... he just knows he is on a different path.  He has chosen the new way, the path of repentance, of turning to God.


This change, this new birth, this *upheaval*, this *emergence* ... will be fast and quick at times, and slow and steady (at) other times.  It is a processive thing ... step-by-step, line upon line ...a building upon a foundation.  (Christ is your foundation, your cornerstone, your *sure thing*, your anchor, your solid rock!)


When you are *born again* -- or *born anew* -- you will be a new creature ... a new man (or woman) ... (of) a different spirit ... one who FEELS a change!  >>"In Him is life...".<<

The old becomes new ... your past has been forgiven ... you are offered a new chance --a new life --- another chance!

God becomes your Father now.



You are no longer a slave to sin .. nor to Satan.  Your old, former ways can now begin to change.

Change is now truly possible!  There IS hope!  There is real hope --- for even the most vile, the worst offender, the hopeless case, the most evil, the proud, the atheist, the agnostic, the stubbornly religious -- and the hardened rebel.

Change *CAN* occur .  You can be a new person ... with a new identity.  You can now be *hidden* with Christ.  You can be *dead to sin* ---- dead to your past ... and alive to a whole new life!

>>> Corinthians 5:17    "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."  (Writer's note:  "all things are becoming new...")



Listen!  Be aware!  Open your heart(s) to this.  There is a way to change ... to be free ... to be free-er than you've ever been!

>>>  II Corinthians 3:17    "Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty."


Where the TRUE God is, there is TRUE liberty, REAL freedom, REAL change ... it is undeniable!


There *IS* victory available:   over sins, addictions, mental problems, hopelessness, suicidal ideas, fears, fear of death.  (Etc.)

God can do it.  He is able.  He is willing. 

>>>  II Peter 3:9b  " (The Lord) is ... longsuffering (extremely patient) to us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." 

(Writer's note:  He wants ALL of us to come to Him ...
He does NOT want ANYONE to perish in Hell!)

This is not some empty talk ... and it's not a simple *pep talk*.  This is *REALITY*.  Take it or leave it:  it's *YOUR* choice every time.  (Every time you are able to hear the truth;  the opportunity of new life in JESUS.)


Love can change you.  Yes, it can!   >SPIRIT SMILE<    Love can touch the most hardened, deadened heart ... it can melt the iciest personality.

Love can give hope to the most miserable ... to the loneliest .. to the *outlanders* ... to the *outcasts* ... to the *leperous* .... to the rejected, abandoned ones.

God -- your Father in Heaven -- hears you.  He hears you now ... right now.  He hears your anger, your frustration, your fear, your silence.

He sees your situation(s), your stressful nights, your tense days, your days of affliction, your burdens of work ... your heavy burdens of life.  He sees it all ... all of it.

He hears your sighs ... your moaning in distress ... your cries of grief... your curses of exasperation ... your rants of frustration ... your yelling in rage ... your mistaken vocalizations (said in anger, but soon regretted.)


>>>Psalm 46:10a  " Be still, and know that I am God ..."


>>> Psalm 113:2  "Blessed be the name of the Lord ... from this time forth and for evermore."

Let the praise of God come upon you ... let Him become your conversation ... let Him be your *talk*,  your new expectation ... every day!

He can bring new insight, new solutions, new ideas ... into your mind(s). He can solve problems ... He can give you another outlook ... another perspective.

He can guide you, as you begin to learn of Him.

>>> Matthew 11:28   "Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."

It is by HIS SPIRIT that you will know Him, and will know His SON.  These Three work together, as One.  They will make Their habitation within you and will manifest (make known) Themselves to you.



How does this happen? (you ask)  It is spiritual.  The sin nature, the carnal man -- the *old* self -- is replaced with the  SPIRIT of God.  He indwells them (you) ... as you give your life to Jesus Christ.

He (Jesus) gives you His life ... He comes to live in you ... His Spirit makes Him (Jesus, Yeshua, Messiah) real to you . It is an experience like none other!



So is this *experience* the same for all?  Do all new believers act the same way?  Do they all feel the same things?

Yes ... and no.  Yes, all *sense* and feel the new birth ... but, not all in the same manner. Some feel more intense manifestations, while others sense a more gentle change.


{{Jesus speaking here? of the Father? of the Spirit?}}

I deal with each person individually.  I meet them where they are.  I reveal Myself in the way I choose, for each person and for each situation.


To each ... I give a measure of faith.  Every human being is given a certain amount of faith. I give *ALL* people a chance to know Me... a way to change .  I leave no one out."
