John Chapter 3 :vs1-21 How can someone be "born again"? (New Living Translation)

After dark one evening, a Jewish religious leader named Nicodemus, a Pharisee, came to speak with Jesus. "Teacher," he said, "we all know that God has sent you to teach us. your miraculous signs are proof enough that God is with you."
Jesus replied, "I assure you, unless you are born again, you can never see the Kingdom of God."
"What do you mean?" exclaimed Nicodemus. "How can an old man go back into his mother's womb and be born again?"
Jesus replied, "The truth is, no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit. Humans can reproduce only human life, but the Holy Spirit gives new life from heaven. So don't be surprised at my statement that you must be born again. Just as you can hear the wind but can't tell where it comes from or where it is going, so you can't explain how people are born of the Spirit."
"What do you mean?" Nicodemus asked.
Jesus replied, "You are a respected Jewish teacher, and yet you don't understand these things? I assure you, I am telling you that we know and have seen, and yet you won't believe us. but if you don't even believe me when I am telling you about things that happen here on earth, how can you possibly believe if I tell you what if going on in heaven? For I, the Son of Man, have come to earth and will return to heaven again. And as Moses lifted up the bronze snake on a pole int he wilderness, so I, the Son of Man, must be lifted up on a pole, so that everyone who believes in me will have eternal life."
"For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God did not send his Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it."
"There is no judgment awaiting those who trust in him. But those who do not trust in him have already been judged for not believing in the only Son of God. Their judgment is based of this fact: The light from heaven came into the world, but they loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil. They hate the light because they want to sin in the darkness. They stay away from the light for fear that their sins will be exposed and they will be punished. But those who do what is right come to the light gladly, so everyone can see that they are doing what God wants."

God's Creation Calls to You

I'm really not exactly sure why I started this blog in the first place ... you know... just kind of 'felt' like it was something maybe God was calling me to do ... My parents don't believe that God 'calls' people to do stuff ... and they are supposedly 'Christians' but who am I to judge?  My dad was trying to finish his degree and become an ordained minister in the Methodist Church .. and he never believed that God had 'called' him to do that ... he just said that it was something good to do ... and in his opinion God 'calls' everyone to think about being a minister .... I happen to totally disagree with my parents' way of thinking ... And I just think that much of the people in American churches today ... most adults even ... most 'moral 'church going Americans ... well ... I believe that yes ... they would agree with my parents ... like just go to your job ... go to church  ... blend in with the crowd ... be a 'good' person ... don't make waves in society  ... and by all means DON'T talk about having a special relationship with God ... when we all know that this doesn't happen to 'normal' people in  the twentieth century ... and if you think that God might be calling you ... just wait for it to pass ... and then go back to the same mundane boring life that you had before ... In my parents' opinion ... God helps us but He does not talk to us ... God gives us guidelines but He does not personally 'guide' us ... and God so loved the world that He gave His only Son to die for our sins .... but apparently  ... according to my parents ... that was  a one time thing ... and if we expect God to help us out with our every little tiny insignificant problem ... then we have got another thing coming ...

I can still almost hear exactly how they would say these things like it was yesterday ....

I talked a little bit about how I've gone through experiences ... experiences that I think are an allegory that help me personally to understand more about God's love and His plan for my life and for all of us ... and I really have a feeling that I also may have gleaned some understanding that could either help and/or encourage other believers ... possibly even help some atheists to relate to my thought process before I found God ... and possibly help them to see that I am a person no better or worse than them ... and a person that hopefully they can relate to and be inspired by to take a chance on God.

After a previous blog where I talked about this feeling of starting this blog and not knowing exactly why ... I came to realize where my name Creation Chick really comes from ... you see ... my life as a little girl was in turmoil right from the start ... and I used to look up at the sky and KNOW that God existed ... some how I just KNEW!  It was like when I went outside .. He was there and He surrounded me and spoke to me ... through His CREATION!  and so ... maybe I do not know everything about Creation Science ... of course I don't  ... However I plan to learn all I can because I know that God has gifted me with both a passion and a talent for doing well in science  ... and though yes ... Ken Ham could of course explain everything better and know all the answers better than me ... any day of the week ... I still want to be the Creation Chick ... because I want to show young people my age who have grown up in the kind of evolution centered environment that I have ... that there is a way to be a Creationist and still survive in this society ... so many of my friends did not agree ... and they went over to evolution's side because they did not want to be argumentative, etc .... and therefor we get all the theistic evolution that runs rampant in our American churches today .... I say ... of course I don't want to be argumentative ... but why should I say the square is blue when I can clearly see that it is red? ... you know ... it's like everything in my mind and my gut is telling me that evolution is totally messed up ... but people don't want to be argumentative we just say 'yah sure you betcha to any new idea that comes along' it's sad really ... but that's what we've come to here in America ...

So back to Creation Chick ... the name ... well .. mostly it is what defines me ... my parents tried to define God for me ... and then God came and spoke to me through His Creation ... and so the reality of the situation is that without Creation .... I WOULD NOT BE SAVED TODAY .... and I KNOW that if God did not Create the world  ... then my faith is NOTHING ... just as if Jesus did not die on the cross and rise again on the third day ... my faith is NOTHING ... Because God is perfect ... EVERYTHING He said in His WORD MUST BE TRUE ... if anyone tries to alter these truths ... they are altering their definition of God ....

I must also note that when I was a little girl my only answer to skeptics in school was that I knew that God's WORD was correct no matter WHAT it said ... and so I had no reason to even THINK about believing in evolution ... because
      THE STAGES OF EVOLUTION are INCONSISTENT WITH WITH THE STAGES OF CREATION in the BIBLE ... and so even as a girl in grade-school I knew that evolution was a lie ...

What is so weird is that have trusted God by faith  ... and somehow ... there is ALWAYS EVIDENCE THAT COMES OUT IN CREATION'S FAVOR . . .   even when it's found by the evolutionists... why?   because it's the real deal, baby  ... that's why!  because creation is the truth. ... that's why ..

People are constantly coming up with new theories about the origin of life ... but does God's Word change on the subject?   Do we revise it to suit the social climate of the times?      Of course not ... the Bible still talks about 'Adam and Eve, the Garden of Eden, the six days of Creation and the calling of Abraham just as it has done for thousands of years ... Yes ... our liberal churches change their interpretations of the text... but the text remains for those who will have the will to read what God is actually telling them no matter what the social climate may be around them ...

And so  ... I just want Creation Chick to symbolize a girl who just looked up at the sky ... at the heavens one day and just KNEW that God was there... and so ... I have so much hope for the world through God's Creation ... because no matter WHERE YOU LIVE or WHO YOU LIVE WITH or HOW YOU WERE BROUGHT UP ... ANYONE ... anyone... ANYONE AT ALL ... can look up at the sky and see God's Creation ... for me it was the beginning to my eternal salvation in Jesus Christ ...

No matter who you are ... God Loves You ... God created you ... God can speak to you wherever you are ... just like He spoke to me.  God is very real and QUITE alive and involved in the world and even in your own life ... even before you know who He is.

I didn't get to everything I was going to talk about ... but I'll end it here ... and leave the rest for another day.

God Bless You all!
May God Bless You with Abundant Life today and Always!

New Year 2010!

Many of you do not know this . . .  but I am married . . .  I was married young and I am still the age of many college students . . .  but marriage and living in the real world has taught me more than I ever learned from school.  I really believe that I have a distinct and unique perspective on life in America and the Christian culture here . . . .  because I believe I have been on both sides of the fence . . . in a way.  I have been on the skeptical side of the fence for many years . . .  I have been on the doubting side of the fence . . .  I have been on the moral and "sophisticated" side of the fence . . . or more like 'moral and successful' side . . . . I have been on the side of the street where girls and boys grow up in gangs and with the only they  . . . and even I could seem to get back at the world was to lash out with words . .  or with raw emotional physical destruction . . . . but nothing can ever really take the pain away from not only having no family  . . .  but also growing up in a violent, abusive, and many times life threatening environment . . . . .  and  . . . I have also grown up with the thought that I did not understand why it was so hard to believe in God . . . or wondering what it was even like to have a spiritual renewal experience of my very own. 

Well sometimes things happen . . .  and GOD happens  . . . when you least expect it  . . .  and just like as in the story with the footprints . . .  you suddenly look back  . .  and you are amazed at the wonders God has performed in your life when you didn't even realize it.

AT this time  . . . right after Christmas  . . . and the new year 2010 already begun . . .  I think about all my Atheistic friends . . .  I think about my emotionally torn past . . .  and I think about my parents . . . not even knowing if they are even saved . . . I worry more than anything about whether I can help the people closest to me to learn about Jesus and be saved . . .  I mean who knows? . . .  The second coming could be any day now . . . . and STILL people come to my site just to mock me . . .  Seriously I am more saddened for them than for any personal attacks they make towards me.  Nothing can be worse than Hell . . . nothing . . . .

And at this time . . .  I also have doubts . . . like what am I even doing anymore . . .  where my life is going . . .  so many times I have even asked myself if I am kidding myself about this 'God thing'  knowing that my parents told me themselves they thought I was crazy . . .

It's weird that the one thing that makes MY life complete . . . is the one thing that separates me from the majority of people on the planet . . .  the majority of whom are not Christians . . . do not take the question of the afterlife seriously, do not think about consequences or purpose to what is going on in their lives at this exact moment  . . .  All they can think about is how their life choices will effect their personal comfort . . .  and THAT is what is accepted in society right now . . . and I'm sure has been accepted for a long long time . . . .

The holidays are very rough on me . . . so I ask that anyone reading this would PLEASE keep me in prayer . . . I am not good at asking this to people face to face right now . . . So I will leave it in God's hands . . . that whoever reads this post and decides to pray for me . . . . I'm sure that is just the right person I need to pray for me . . . .

You see . . .  my marriage to a believing and professing Christian has caused a rift between me and my former friends and family . . .  and it has saved me from an abusive environment . . .  Somehow . . .I believe that whether or not I am able to help close this rift  . .  the least I can do is try to help close the rift between Christians and Atheists here in America and around the world . ..  especially those that I relate to  . . . those who still have the most hope and window of opportunity to come to understand each other . . .  the youth of our generation.

And so I can only pray that someone will reach my own family and friends . ..  but at the moment I cannot . .  and I am not emotionally able to . . .  It has been killing me inside . . . But I'm going to have to leave it in God's hands . .  and perhaps I will help reach someone reach a member of someone else's family that no one else could reach.

The reason I believe so strongly in talking about Creation Science . . .  is because . .  Science is like a god to this world to Secularists and Atheists . . .  and science is something people know to be good and helpful . . .  science is something people can relate to . . .  If we can take this jumping off point and run with it . . .  just like Paul did with the 'unknown god' with the Greeks . ..  perhaps we can reach some people with the truth that has saved us . . . the Saving faith in Jesus Christ our Lord.

Thoughts on Christmas

I've been thinking about Christmas . . .  Thinking about God, Thinking about the too-good-to-be-true  miracle of Jesus Christ, God's only son becoming flesh and walking among us . .  to show us how to live, to relate to our struggles, to show us how to love, and to inevitably die for our sins hung tortured on a cross . .  with nails through His wrists and feet, and pieces of His flesh on His back ripped apart by flogging . . .  pieces of His soul and His dignity,  any His psychological strength and will being ripped away from Him as He was mocked, insulted, lied about, misunderstood, not accepted . . .  and He was PERFECT.  Jesus lived the perfect life.  How horrible and sad He must have felt to know that no matter what He did . .  . people rejected Him . .  how horrible for the world . . that even when someone who was completely good . . . even then a person not go through this life without pain because the world really doesn't like good, kindness, or love, but the world is influenced with deception and evil . . .  the world rejects truth, the world rejects light, and the world rejects the salvation that was given through the blood of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior! Praise Be His Name!

I say "Merry Christmas" to people when I am working (retail) because I believe it is a friendly greeting . .  and in some way . .  I am wishing that even if they do not celebrate Christmas I wish them a good life . .  and a good day on Christmas.  My secret best wish for them at Christmas, however, is that they find real true happiness for this life and in the next . . . and of course the only way this is possible is if they find Jesus  :  )  So I feel I must say Merry Christmas . . it is the least I can do on Christmas.  So many people say "Happy Holidays" but I much prefer to say Merry Christmas . . . If my job had a problem with it then I would have to decide whether to keep saying it or not . .  or else perhaps worst case scenario- lose my job . ..  but as things stand I am not in that predicament . . .  I have been before but am not at this moment . .  and so I choose to say "Merry Christmas" . . .  because every time I say "Merry Christmas" I feel free . .  and every time I have tried to bring myself to say the politically correct "Happy Holidays" I feel like a piece of my soul has died and I feel defeated.  But when I say "Merry Christmas", I feel like I am free to express myself as part of God's Creation!  I know that I am created by God, and so my purpose in life is to give Him glory. 

Some may feel that the 'Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas' controversy should not be a controversy at all . .  but I do not mean to make it a controversy . . . I just mean to express my true nature as a creation of God . . .  just as with being a Creationist, I do not mean to cause controversy  . . .  but I am more afraid of creating controversy between myself and my God . . than "creating controversy" between myself and just people.  God is God and people are just people . . just part of His Creation . .  and so I will say "Merry Christmas" because I can . .  and because it makes me happy to . .  just like it makes me happy to talk about Creation Science . .

I love God and it is in my created nature to say "Merry Christmas" and in some way when I say it . . .  it is like an invite and a blessing to all those who hear it . . so that maybe . . just maybe . .  when they do hear it . . . they will think . .  hmm . . . I wonder what this thing called "Christmas" is all about? . . . and if they would find out the meaning . . . they will find life . . .  eternal life in Jesus Christ . . .  - and THAT is the meaning of Christmas.

And so  . . . though it may even feel like Spiritual Warfare just to get the words out our mouths, "Merry Christmas" I would risk anything to say it . . .  because no matter what job or status I have in this world . . . it is all NOTHING if I cannot acknowledge my Creator especially on the day He gave Himself to us to save my soul and the souls of the whole world.  And so, whatever job or organizations or status or responsibilities I have in the rest of my life . . . I hope to NEVER stop saying "MERRY CHRISTMAS!"

Merry Christmas to you all!  May God Bless You Abundantly,

Hi There . . Creation chick here . . . I just wanted to let everyone know . . thanks for supporting me and friending . . subscribing to me . . etc . . . it's actually been a really good outlet for me to get some of my thoughts out there and share with people who have common ideals as me . . . I really have been encouraged by how many God fearing Christians are in there twenties or around that generation . . just like me . . we really need to stick together . . because we are really going to determine what happens next in this country . . in the world . . in history . . etc . . . I just wanted to give you a little personal insight into my life . . and I know I may be shooting myself in the foot . . . because yes . . . there are always people who take advantage of people who put themselves out there or share personal details . . . I really made the Creation Chick . . so that no one would know who I was . . and I could really say what I thought . . for real . . not just pressured into it . . you see I've had trying times in my life . . . much of it is not easy to understand . . and much of it is not easy to understand even for me . . . which is interesting that people go through things that they do not understand . . well . . I'm one of them . . just like everyone else . . I don't have all the answers for everything . . I have genuine fears . . and I have times that I just simply can't make it anymore . . . that's when God has come in to my life . . but recently . . I have felt that God has been being 'a little tough' on me . . as I have been saying to friends, family, and counselors along the way . . I feel like God is encouraging me to be strong and confident . . . and not have to feel like I am going to die and the world is going to end and I am going to get fired . . etc . . etc . . etc . . every time I lose my keys . . He is trying to help me to have peace in myself and . . of course . . to not lose my keys so much . . hee hee . . . but peace in myself . . wow! that's something that I could go on and on and on and on about . . . I really think that's one of the true reasons that we are put on earth . . to find ourselves . . to find peace with ourselves . . . some try to find it IN ourselves . . but the reality . . the real truth of the matter . . . is that . . . we can only find peace with and for ourselves . . only in Jesus Christ . . . this is something that is difficult to accept .. . because by our very nature as human beings we want to do things ourselves . . . I'm telling you right now . . I have yelled, screamed, cried . . argued with and tried to disobey God . . when He has been showing me something that I need to be doing . . and I am scared to death . . because I am afraid that He is wrong . . that He doesn't understand quite all the angles of the situation . . that He doesn't understand my feelings . . that He doesn't understand my limit of stress or my limit to what I can do at this point in my life . . .that He doesn't understand that I can't afford to lose friends or money right now . . just so I can take a chance yet again on an invisible Harvey-like pal . . who yes . . has always been there for me . . but it has always been on faith . . and what about when my faith is shaky . . and what about the fact that I am secretly scared to death that this might be the one time that He's going to let me down . . . forget about me . .. or be high and mighty . . not care about me . . why should he? . . . I'll admit . . it's difficult . . but can I honestly say that God has EVER let me down about ANYTHING? . . . no . . . He hasn't . . . and that's difficult to say . . because humans are used to being in control . . . and the fact that God always knows best and has NEVER EVER MESSED UP on ANYTHING at all! the fact that He NEVER has a hidden motive like people usually do . . the fact that He NEVER tries to be nice to us . . until the moment of weakness . . and then totally change and use us and take advantage of us for everything we are . . . the fact that he NEVER will even ignore us . . EVEN IF WE KEEP BEING ANNOYING AND PRAYING ABOUT LOST KEYS LIKE 10 TIMES A DAY! . . . I mean seriously .. If God helped me find my keys every time I prayed because I was an emotional wreck trying to find my way around my lonely apartment with No ties to family or friends or any kind of sense of direction or where to turn next . . being constantly plagued by flashbacks . . post-traumatic stress . . feelings of guilt . . shame . . hurt . . insecurity . . fear . . hoplessness . . restlessness . . . suicidal thoughts . . . extreme thoughts of anger toward people who hurt me . . and everyone who stood around and let it happen . . . WHICH WAS EVERYONE in my book . . because NO ONE DID ANYTHING TO HELP ME . . so that means . . EVERYONE let it happen . . . and in my eyes . . I had condemned the whole world . . no chance of love or friendship . . caring . . or anything that involved trust and sharing between people . . . get an apartment all alone . . . go to a job where I don't ever talk to a living soul . . and wait to die . . that was my goal . . and I mean I was a Christian . . the weird thing . . is that I really want to talk about everything that happened to me . . . but if I did . . I wouldn't be about to be sane for work tomorrow . . so I can't right now . . . so please don't guess at what happened or if you know . . don't comment . . please . . it would be too difficult for me to take emotionally . . what I'm saying is that I'm not better than anyone else . . but I'm certainly no less than anyone else either . . and I'm going to state my opinion just the same as everyone else has a right to state there's . . . but what I'm saying is that God has given me new life . . . I have joy now . . where there was none before . . I can sit alone without thinking terrible negative thoughts about myself . . I can relax . . I can relate to actual human beings . . people that I don't even know say I'm sweet or funny . .or kind or whatever . . the reality is that that is the love and the mercy of Jesus showing through me . . I am nothing without Him . . and I have never been anything without Him . . I just thought I was . . before I started to learn about the REAL reason for living . . it's almost like a mystery that has to be unfolded to us because . . this was not the original way things were supposed to be! you know? . . . people who say that there shouldn't be so much pain and suffering in the world . . and that the world seems like the fittest survive and that only the strong and mean get ahead . . . well they are right! . . that is the way the world is going . . and if you look at how the world is going . . you might even think for a second that yes . . perhaps the tragic and uneventful reality is that there never was a purpose for life . . and that all the stories of love . . honor . . bravery . . hope . . purpose . . .kindness gentleness . . . extreme courage . . loyalty and goodness .. . perhaps these ideals . . are just all a mistake and a figment of our imagination . . right? . . . WRONG! we are created by God! He is our Creator, Redeemer, and our Friend . . . and we live in a fallen world! it's like the original connection with the Creator has been lost and we have forgotten our mission here on earth . . in the mean time . . we have gone on having our families and our lives . . but we have forgotten we have a mission! a mission to fulfill! and that mission is to constantly look to our true commander in chief - God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit . . and constantly look to God for direction, guidance, hope, strength, encouragement, will, faith, and EVERYTHING WE NEED TO carry our the smallest tasks . . and to carry out the most awesome and unbelievable missions in His name!

Well .. . please pray for me .. . .I 'm going through some stuff that I can't handle . . . and I really need comfort and support from others . . . unfortunately . . what I'm going through is so personal and painful that I really can't bring myself to talk about it . .. but at least I acknowledged there is something there . . . God Bless You All,

Salvation in Christ Jesus!

Hi there, I'm the Creation Chick! I made this page specifically to let you know that if you are wondering, God does love you . . and he wants to be a part of your life! Please don't hesitate to comment, email me, find me on facebook, PMme, or whatever . . I would love to share with you the love of Jesus whether you agree with me on other subjects or not. I am not worthy to receive God's grace . . . . and so when I help bring other people to Jesus, it helps me to know that I have helped someone else to receive this wonderful gift as well. And truly, that's what it is, A FREE GIFT! Jesus stands at the door and knocks. All you have to do is to let Him in!

If you want to be saved, you need to believe that God is the one true God, and that Jesus was who He said He was, God incarnate, you have to believe that Jesus died for your sins, and you have to admit that you are in fact a sinner and you need God's forgiveness. You must trust in Jesus for your only way of Salvation.

Jesus said "I am the way, the truth, and the light. No one comes to the Father, except through me."

I would encourage you to tell God that you are a sinner and tell Him that you are sorry and thank Him for sending His only Son into the World "so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but shall have eternal life!"

It is true that even the demons know the name of Jesus and shudder, and that there will be many on the day of judgement to whom Jesus will say . . "I never knew you", But to know that you have Salvation in Christ, you must confess that Jesus is God and He IS the only way to Heaven!

It is very simple, and God WILL change you once you decide to make this choice. But make it quickly because no one knows the hour that He will return. Jesus is preparing a place for us in a new heaven and a new earth. There will be no more tears there. He will dry them all and He will comfort us. And we will serve Him forever in perfect harmony.
