We are in Christ now. Regenerating, spiritually renewed, revived, refreshed. Born again forever. Brand new creations. The testimony we have, is not about who we were, but who we are now. Filled with the springs of living waters!

Ps 16:11  Now you've got my feet on the life path, all radiant from the shining of your face. Ever since you took my hand, I'm on the right way. MSG


Psalms 16:11 Because of you, I know the path of life, as I taste the fullness of joy in your presence. At your right side I experience divine pleasures forevermore!  TPT

2 COR 5:17 Now, in the light of your co-inclusion in his death and resurrection, whoever you thought you were before, in Christ you are a brand new person! The old ways of seeing yourself and everyone else are over. Acquaint yourself with the new!  MIRROR  ↕↕↕

2 Cor 5:17 Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life burgeons! Look at it!

 MSG  ↕↕↕

2 Cor 5:17 Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!  AMP

Galatians 6:15 Whether a man is circumcised or uncircumcised is meaningless to me. What really matters is the transforming power of this new creation life.

16And all those who live in agreement with this standard will have true peace and God's delight, for they are the Israel of God.  TPT

COL 3:10 We stand fully identified in the new creation renewed in knowledge according to the pattern of the exact image of our Creator.

11 The revelation of Christ in us gives identity to the individual beyond anything anyone could ever be as a Greek or a Jew, (American or African), foreigner or famous, male or female, king or pawn. From now on everyone is defined by Christ; everyone is represented in Christ.  

12 You are the product of Gods love; he restored you to his original thought. You belong to him exclusively. It is like changing garments. Now that you have gotten rid of the old, clothe yourselves with inner compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience, (Just like you were once identified by your apparel, the characteristics of these qualities define you now.)

John 3:3 Jesus answered, Nicodemus, listen to this eternal truth: Before a person can even perceive God's kingdom, they must first experience a rebirth.

4Nicodemus said, Rebirth? How can a gray-headed man be reborn? It's impossible for anyone to go back into the womb a second time and be reborn!

5Jesus answered, I speak an eternal truth: Unless you are born of water and the Spirit, you will never enter God's kingdom.

6For the natural realm only gives birth to things that are natural, but the spiritual realm gives birth to supernatural life!

7You shouldn't be amazed by my statement, You all must be born from above!

8For the Spirit-Wind blows as it chooses. You can hear its sound, but you don't know where it came from or where it's going. So it is the same with those who are Spirit-born! TPT    ↕↕↕

John 3:3 Jesus said, "You're absolutely right. Take it from me: Unless a person is born from above, it's not possible to see what I'm pointing to to God's kingdom."

4 "How can anyone," said Nicodemus, "be born who has already been born and grown up? You can't re-enter your mother's womb and be born again. What are you saying with this 'born-from-above' talk?"

5 Jesus said, "You're not listening. Let me say it again. Unless a person submits to this original creation the 'wind hovering over the water' creation, the invisible moving the visible, a baptism into a new life it's not possible to enter God's kingdom.

6 When you look at a baby, it's just that: a body you can look at and touch. But the person who takes shape within is formed by something you can't see and touch the Spirit and becomes a living spirit.

7 "So don't be so surprised when I tell you that you have to be 'born from above' out of this world, so to speak.

8 You know well enough how the wind blows this way and that. You hear it rustling through the trees, but you have no idea where it comes from or where it's headed next. That's the way it is with everyone 'born from above' by the wind of God, the Spirit of God."  MSG

Eph 4:22  Strip yourselves of your former nature [put off and discard your old unrenewed self] which characterized your previous manner of life and becomes corrupt through lusts and desires that spring from delusion;

23 And be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude],

24 And put on the new nature (the regenerate self) created in God's image, [Godlike] in true righteousness and holiness. AMP


Ephesians 4:22 And he has taught you to let go of the lifestyle of the ancient man, the old self-life, which was corrupted by sinful and deceitful desires that spring from delusions.

 23 Now it's time to be made new by every revelation that's been given to you.

24And to be transformed as you embrace the glorious Christ-within as your new life and live in union with him! For God has recreated you all over again in his perfect righteousness, and you now belong to him in the realm of true holiness. TPT

Lam 5:21 Turn us to Yourself, O Lord, and we shall be turned and restored! Renew our days as of old!   AMP


Lam 5:21 Bring us back to you, God we're ready to come back. Give us a fresh start. MSG

Psalms 80:3 Revive us, O God! Let your beaming face shine upon us with the sunrise rays of glory; then nothing will be able to stop us.  TPT

Psalms 80:18 Then we will never turn back from you. Revive us again, that we may trust in you.

19 O God, the mighty Commander of Angel Armies, come back and rescue us! Let your beaming face shine upon us with the sunrise rays of glory. Then nothing will ever stop us again!  TPT

JN 4:14 Whoever drinks from the source of this water that I shall give will never thirst again; because the water that I give becomes an artesian well bursting from within, defining the life of the ages!  MIRROR

John 7:37  On the final and climactic day of the Feast, Jesus took his stand. He cried out, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink.

38 Rivers of living water will brim and spill out of the depths of anyone who believes in me this way, just as the Scripture says."

39 (He said this in regard to the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were about to receive. The Spirit had not yet been given because Jesus had not yet been glorified.)  MSG

Zech 14:8 And it shall be in that day that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem, half of them to the eastern [Dead] Sea and half of them to the western [Mediterranean] Sea; in summer and in winter shall it be.

9 And the Lord shall be King over all the earth; in that day the Lord shall be one [in the recognition and worship of men] and His name one. AMP

REV 22:17 The Spirit and the Bride beckons, Come! And let everyone in whom this bold bidding resonates, extend the same urgent invitation, Oh yes, come! This is for the thirsty to come and quench their deepest longings by freely drinking from the water of life!  MIRROR


Rev 22:17 The [Holy] Spirit and the bride (the church, the true Christians) say, Come! And let him who is listening say, Come! And let everyone come who is thirsty [who is painfully conscious of his need of those things by which the soul is refreshed, supported, and strengthened]; and whoever [earnestly] desires to do it, let him come, take, appropriate, and drink the water of Life without cost.  AMP
