Spiritual Life of Nicodemus and of Samaritan Woman Part 2
Everyone who is able to receive the heart of Jesus? Those who don’t trust and believe in themselves, those who have nothing in him to trust and believe in himself it is not that you have to say I believe in the word, it is not that you have to try hard to believe in the word the word will just come and enter inside your heart. Everyone who is the word? It is God isn’t it? In the beginning of the word and the word was with god and the word was god. How do you receive god in your heart? By receiving his word in your heart. By resiving the word of god you are receiving god in your heart. Instead of listening to the word of god which word do you listen to?
Are we not listening to my own word, my own right voice my own justifiable word in my heart. Everyone my word, my heart my thought is the voice of Satan. Only the word of god is true but what is the word of god? We cannot understand with our head with our brain the word of god the way it is. Is that right? It is not that we have to try to understand the word of god sometimes this word of god does not match with our hearts, match thoughts sometimes this word does not make sense but when we receive the word of god the way it is in our hearts, this word of god becomes power, this word of god becomes strength and work inside of us like Genesis 1. This world was without form and void and darkness was in the face of the deep but when the word of God came, let there be light, and there was light. What had changed this world that was covered with darkness and turned it to light? It was the word of God it is not that you have to try to change yourself it is not that you have to turn around yourself.
When you receive the word of god which does not make sense to you which you cannot understand just the way it is in your heart then the word which is the light the word which is god comes inside of you and changes your heart and changes your life. Jesus once again tried to preach the gospel to him and once again he could not understand what Jesus was trying to say that’s why he is rejecting the word of again. Let’s take a look in verse 5. What Jesus how can that thing be? I don’t understand that is nonsense. Right now in verse 9 is nicodemus having the posture of the heart receiving the word of Jesus? Is he receiving the word of Jesus? He’s not receiving the word of Jesus. Why is he not receiving the word of Jesus? Because he cannot understand the word of Jesus. If he does not understand then he doesn’t receive it. How can you be born again, how can you be born of water and spirit?
We are already born how can you be born again do you have to go into your mother’s womb and be born again? How can you be born of water and spirit that is nonsense? But once again Jesus is trying to preach the gospel to him again. Verse 13-16. Once again Jesus preaches the gospel to Nicodemus but until the end although Jesus preaches the gospel to Nicodemus like this he doesn’t understand so he doesn’t believe in the gospel. Everyone here in verse 14 during the time of Moses when the children of Israel came out of Egypt and they were wondering in the wilderness, now the Jews, the Israelites they begun to complain because of food, because of the way god has sent the fairy serpent to bite them right? What happens when the fairy serpent bites them? They die, isn’t it? That fairy serpent in the bible it represents Satan. Satan comes and bites you sateen comes and bites your heart, the temptations of the world comes and bites you, the desires of the world comes and bites you and we are the people who cannot help but die because of the fairy serpent.
Because of the fairy serpent we are bitten by sin we are bitten by worries of this world, we are bitten by the desires of this world, we are bitten by the sin of this world we are bitten by Satan and we were like the Israelites, the Jews who were bitten by the fairy serpent who could not help but die and go to hellfire because of the fairy serpent but Jesus did not leave them alone, Jesus instead gave the children of Israel the bronze serpent upon a pole and Moses he lifted it up and whoever it is no matter how many fairy serpents you’ve been bitten with only those who will look upon the bronze serpent. What happens to them? They live. Is that right? Everyone the one who is lifted up upon the pole that bronze serpent it represents Jesus. The fairy serpent which was biting them and killing them and bringing death upon their lives is sin is Satan. No matter what kind of sin and Satan you are bitten by as long as you look upon Jesus upon a pole as long as you look upon that Jesus who is lifted up above the ground then you are healed and you are able to gain life.
