God The Redeemer

Always turn a negative situation into a positive situation.” -Michael Jordan

Sampson, Israel’s strongest man and greatest warrior had let his guard down. He’d given Delilah, a woman from the enemy’s camp the secret to his strength: his hair.  If Sampson’s hair was cut off then he’d lose his strength, and that’s exactly what happened. Thus the enemy easily captured Sampson.  Thankfully the story doesn’t end there, because while Sampson was in prison his hair grew back, and in one last hurrah he used his strength to bring down the walls of a building to defeat hundreds of his enemies inside.  There are two lessons from Sampson:  First off, never allow the enemy an opportunity to get close to you, AND secondly, you are never too “far gone” to where God can’t redeem you.  God can turn your mistake into a miracle.


And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good for those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them (Romans 8:28, NIV).

  1. IS NATURAL BIRTH ESSENTIAL TO BE SAVED? BY STEVE FINNELL

    According to some, men must be born of natural birth to enter the kingdom of God. There are many who declare that Jesus said you must be born of the water (amniotic fluid) to enter the kingdom of God. What did Jesus say?

    John 3:5 Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.

    Was Jesus saying you must be born of natural birth (amniotic fluid) to enter the kingdom of God? Of course not.

    Men do need to be born of the waters of baptism to enter the kingdom of God.

    On the Day of Pentecost (2:22-41) the apostle Peter preached Jesus as a miracle worker. Peter preached Jesus as both Lord and Christ. Peter told them that God raised Jesus from the dead. When the three thousand believed, they where told to repent and be baptized for the forgiveness of their sins and that they would receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. After the three thousand received Peter's word they were baptized in water and added the the kingdom of God on earth, which is the church of Christ.
    Peter did not tell one soul that they had to be born of natural birth (amniotic fluid) to enter the kingdom of God. The church is the kingdom of God on earth. The requirements for entering the kingdom of God on earth are the same as for entering the eternal kingdom of God. You must be born of water and the Spirit.

    The new birth (Acts 2:38) Water baptism and the Holy Spirit.
    The new birth (Titus 3:5) Washing of regeneration (water baptism) and renewing of the Holy Spirit (born of the Spirit).
    The new birth (John 3:5) Born of water(water baptism), and born of the Spirit (the Holy Spirit).


    BEING BORN OF THE WATER OF NATURAL BIRTH (AMNIOTIC FLUID) IS NOT A REQUIREMENT TO ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
