There are those like Nicodemus out there right now, men and women who are Pharisees, who are very well versed in The Law, and traditions of the Jewish faith.
My heart goes out to you this morning, because like the Nicodemus in John 3:1, you are searching for the truth, you believe in God and want to obey Him and please Him, but you don’t understand who Jesus is and why He came and what He did for you.
Why is Jesus important?
Some look at Jesus from afar knowing that He was a teacher come from God because no man could do the miracles that He did, but you don’t understand the difference between the old and new covenants, and why a new covenant was necessary.
The LORD, says to you today, “My People, oh My People are stuck in the old, they need to come into the new. The Spirit is new.
They must pass over, they must pass through the veil. They must see Me anew. I love them, but they have not come to Me.”
“Jesus answered and said unto him (Nicodemus), Verily, verily , I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see The Kingdom of God….
….. Except a man be born of water and the Spirit He cannot enter into the kingdom of God,”” John 3:3,5.
“Search the scriptures, for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me, But ye will not come to me, that ye might have life,” John 5:39-40.
“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved,”John 3:14-17.
God Bless You, you are in my prayers
