The Narrow Way
Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again/above he cannot see the kingdom of God.” ~ John 3:3
We all need to be born again, and again from above, it’s a cycle of Life that brings us higher, that enables us to see more clearly, and to Love more purely.
This birthing process is one that in the womb of our Mother “Jerusalem from above” she will see us through, for she is experienced, and knows exactly how to bring her sons forth.
Your faithfulness continues throughout all generations; You established the earth, and it stands
~ Psalm 119:90
What must transpire is the death to what is against us from our natural birth via the first Adam. This false information must be subdued; this is process, or cycle. Nature over and over emphasizes the cycle being born again, we plant seed to produce a crop, and then use that seed to produce yet another crop. …for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God. ~ 1 Peter 1:23
1 A Psalm of David. The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at My right hand Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.”
2 The LORD will stretch forth Your strong scepter from Zion, saying, “Rule in the midst of Your enemies.”
3 Your people will volunteer freely in the day of Your power; In holy array, from the womb of the dawn, Your youth are to You as the dew.
We must remain within the womb of Zion to be brought forth, it’s here we find this life cycle developed within us, we experience the travail, yet just as a mother looks past the discomfort in hope of bringing her child forth, we must do likewise, trusting our Mother.
7 “Before she travailed, she brought forth; Before her pain came, she gave birth to a boy.
8 “Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Can a land be born in one day? Can a nation be brought forth all at once? As soon as Zion travailed, she also brought forth her sons.
9 “Shall I bring to the point of birth and not give delivery?” says the LORD. “Or shall I who gives delivery shut the womb?” says your God.
10 “Be joyful with Jerusalem and rejoice for her, all you who love her; Be exceedingly glad with her, all you who mourn over her,
11 That you may nurse and be satisfied with her comforting breasts, That you may suck and be delighted with her bountiful bosom.”
12 For thus says the LORD, “Behold, I extend peace to her like a river, And the glory of the nations like an overflowing stream; And you will be nursed, you will be carried on the hip and fondled on the knees.
13 “As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; And you will be comforted in Jerusalem.”
There is great confusion among His children about this birthing process, and we must seek to have our hearts cleared of the misinformation for our formation as sons. We must “seek Truth, purse it earnestly”.
Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. ~ Matthew 7:14
The gates of Zion are the narrow way that leads to life. “The LORD loves the gates of Zion More than all the other dwelling places of Jacob.” Psalm 87:2
This birthing process is found in our submission to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, accept no substitutes.
“Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ ~ Jesus
