If it doesn’t make people say, WOW! when you say you are brand new, then you are not yet brand new. Because if any person is ingrafted in Me (the Messiah) he absolutely is a new creation (a new creature altogether); his old previous moral and spiritual condition has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come causing friends and co-workers to say WOW! what happened to him! 2 Corinthians 5:17.
Remember when you WOWed the world with your changed life? No more dirty talk, no more barroom after work, no more messing around, you were not angry any more, people cussing you out and you just smiled back, you even gave your lunch to a homeless guy, you never complained anymore, and then you were praying over your meal and everybody was saying, “WOW! What happened to him!”
It’s called brand new, yes it’s called born again, but that’s overused now, because religion has misused it.
Simply put: An old natured man left work one day, and a brand new man showed up the next morning in the same body! 2 Corinthians 5:17.
Even simpler put: Heaven invaded another human being by invitation.
If your lifestyle is not effecting people in a WOW way, maybe you are not a new creature in Me yet! If love has not taken over your life, then the God of love has to be missing! Because everyone that loves is born of My Father, and knows Him intimately. 8 If you do not operate in love, then you really do not know My Father; for He is love,” 1 John 4:7-8.
Those who are following Me with all their heart are hearing, “WOW,” “WOW,” “WOW,” everywhere they go!
You WOW them when you heal the sick!
You WOW them with your unspeakable joy!
You WOW them with the gift of knowledge!
You WOW them with your love for them!
You WOW them with your forgiveness!
Everywhere I went, I was WOWing people, and if I AM greater in you than he that’s in the world. You should be hearing the WOWs everywhere you go!
Some of you are saying there was a time when, people said WOW about Me, but no more. This is not unusual, it’s happened to millions, because they exchanged a relationship for religion.
Let’s be truthful here; You have left (abandoned) the fervent love you had for Me, you actually have deserted Me, your first love,” Revelation 2:4.
Remember when you were excited to tell everyone about Me. We spent hours together talking about everything and you were so full of joy. Stop everything for a moment and “remember from what heights you have fallen.
Please Repent (so I can change your inner man to meet Father’s will) and then you can do the works you did previously, when first you knew Me. This is so serious because if you don’t, I will be forced to visit you and remove your lamp-stand from its place, unless you change your mind, Revelation 2:5.
After all we have been through, the thing that would hurt all of heaven the most, is for Me to have to remove your lamp stand!
Right now, Love is calling you back to your first Love, where there is joy and life flowing out of your belly continually! I want to use you to heal people and bring heaven into their lives.
I will start the WOWs again if you make Me the priority over everything in your life, just like old times!
