Teachable or Born Again

Teachable or Born Again

Let us first understand, our walk with Christ first starts in the flesh and finishes when we are Born Again and then walk in the Spirit, by His spiritual example.

So, then the question, or desire, is not that we remain teachable, but to become Born Again by the Indwelling of Christ.

 

For to remain teachable we remain in the flesh. But when we become Born Again, we become teachers in by and through the Holy Spirit of Christ. Of whom it is written;

Matthew 10:20 (KJV)
20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaks in you.

 

So, now let us see Christ’s Truth of this. In the Old Covenant we are told to seek Him to;

 

Psalm 25:4-5 (KJV)
4 Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.
5 Lead me in thy truth and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.

 

Psalm 25:8-9 (KJV)
8 Good and upright is the LORD: therefore, will he teach sinners in the way.
9 The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.

 

We plead for God to;

 

Psalm 27:9-11 (KJV)
9 Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.
11 Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.

 

Psalm 51:12-14 (KJV)
12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
14 Deliver me from blood guiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

 

We confess;

 

Psalm 119:11-14 (KJV)
11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
12 Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.
13 With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.
14 I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.

 

We are instructed;

 

Proverbs 9:9-10 (KJV)
9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

 

Proverbs 16:21-23 (KJV)
21 The wise in heart shall be called prudent: and the sweetness of the lips increase learning.
22 Understanding is a wellspring of life unto him that hath it: but the instruction of fools is folly.
23 The heart of the wise teaches his mouth and added learning to his lips.

 

And we receive God’s promise of the New Covenant;

 

Jeremiah 31:31-34 (KJV)
31  Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32  Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:

33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

34  And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.


And Jesus echoes the Words of the Old Covenant on which the New Covenant is built;

 

Matthew 5:17-19 (KJV)
17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

 

And warning is given;

Matthew 15:7-9 (KJV)
7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias (Isaiah) prophesy of you, saying, 8 This people draws nigh unto me with their mouth, and honored me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

 

But the Holy Spirit of Christ reminds us that;

 

1 Corinthians 2:12-14 (KJV)
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Ghost teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14 But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

 

Galatians 3:23-26 (KJV)

But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

 

But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

 

And the Holy Spirit Chastises us;

 

Hebrews 5:12-14 (KJV)
12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
13 For every one that uses milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
14 But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

 

However, we can only reach that skillful use of the Word when we become Born Again;

 

And what does the Holy Spirit of Christ say about being Born Again?

 

John 3:3, 5-7 (KJV)

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

 

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

 

Born Again in that Spirit of Christ;

 

Ephesians 1:11-14 (KJV)

11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: 12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.

 

13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, 14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

 

For;

 

1 John 3:9-11 (KJV)

9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remained in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

 

10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

 

11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.

 

1 John 4:6-8 (KJV)

6 We are of God: he that knows God hears us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

 

7 Beloved let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God and knows God. 8 He that loveth not knows not God; for God is love.

 

1 John 5:1-6 (KJV)

1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and everyone that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. 2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

 

3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

4 For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.

 

5 Who is he that overcomes the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? 6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.

 

1 John 5:17-19 (KJV)

17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.

 

18 We know that whosoever is born of God sins not; but he that is begotten of God keeps himself, and that wicked one touches him not. 19 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
