Our 1st birth is flesh via water of the womb(sin nature)2nd birth or being born again , is spiritual,Thus born by water & Spirit.(flesh means sin)(the flesh cannot be saved or born again)it is a spiritual birth by God,flesh cannot enter God's Kingdom.1cor.15:50
In These last days,it is very important that you know why you need to be be born again, and especially HOW to.
Religion will teach her own self righteous religious way to be born again, leading you unto her (Religion) and not unto God at all.(Matt.23)
First off, looking at in the beginning how Ishmael was the bad one, who did not please God,(remember this)it is how the world is today. and Isaac did please God........so you do see the 2 brothers across the whole world today(Good & Evil)
All have sinned, not one single person on the face of this earth EVER was ,is or who will come into this life,will be without sin....Romans 3:23 For (ALL) have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;Jesus was God in the Flesh, and never sinned,He became our once & for all sacrifice.(1Cor.5:7)
God is Holy & He cannot look upon any sin.In the Old test. the Jews had to go once a year & sacrifice an animal & be forgiven for their sins,BUT,they were never set free.(they just continued in their old ways of serving sin & the devil ,carved images and other gods)
God had to make a new way for us, so we could be back in relationship with God(which was by God Himself becoming Flesh :1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness:(God was manifest in the flesh) justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
Also see John1:1-14 how God thru Christ Jesus' Body became flesh and see 1Cor.5:7 how that body of Christ is our Once & for all sacrifice.
how only by the shed Blood of God,which was shed from that body of Christ for our sins(Acts 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed "he church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood."see this(God's Own Shed Blood)(we are only forgiven & set free by the power of the shed Blood of God through Christ Jesus.and this only happens as we truly receive Christ as Lord over our life.
Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Romans 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
As sinners, we broke our relationship with God...and so by being born again, it reconciles us back unto the Father so we have relationship with almighty God, by walking & talking with Him, by praying to Him in Jesus' Name.Now see 2 Corinthians 5:19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation............so you see, by being born again in Christ by His shed Blood, we are reconciled back unto God.This is important...nobody teaches this anymore, and for this; many are lost & God also is angered' being born again does mean we have everlasting life in Christ, our life(soul) will not ever perish in hell & the lake of fire, BUT the best reason (which no man teaches anymore) is to restore our relationship or reconcile us back unto the Father.God is angry that people have done away with teaching the true meaning of salvation,which is to put us back into relationship with Most Holy Father God.
God put us here for His good pleasure, so He can walk & talk,(dwell) in us & through us & with us!!!look at this:Isaiah 59:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.........
John 9:31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth. Doing God's Will is to believe God & to receive Christ as Lord & savior over your life & to therefore become a true Worshiper of Most Holy Father God,it is a Spiritual Birth
Being born again , means letting Christ come in & dwell in us .see:Colossians 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of (his mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:)Chirst dwells in us!!!
There is nothing at all you can do to be born again, except to believe God & receive Christ as Lord over your life, by asking Him in Rev 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.Watch this:the Door is our Heart,knock ,is hearing the Word of God, or the Gospel,hearing His voice is; belieivng God ,opening the door , is asking Christ into our heart to be Lord(King) over our life.
At this point of believing God & asking Christ in is being born again, a brand new Spirit in Christ Jesus; in Christ is our redemption & by His Blood the forgiveness of all of our sins Eph.1:7/
Now,the Lord(our King) seals us with the Holy Spirit unto the day of our redemption :Ephesians 1:13 (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), Ephesians 1:14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.Jesus is the sealer, Holy Spirit is the seal & we are the sealed!!!.............Now Holy Spirit in us,draws us, or leads us unto repentance,which is to no longer want to serve the sin(what ever the sin may be)we will point out later on..we turn away from the sin or sins unto Christ Jesus : Luke 13:3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.(This means the soul that sins(unrepentant)will die in hell & the lake of fire and be nomore (Hell:mark9:45,46 & the Lake of fire ,destruction, Rev.20:10-14).(.***.Ezekiel 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die***................ Now Holy Spirit in us leads us to confession of all our sins to God, and in Godly sorrow as God only hears & knows our hearts ,and so we confess to God & to God alone & none other : , 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness....cleanses our souls from all sins by the Power of His Shed Blood!!!at which point , now all of our sins from the past are forgiven at the point of our salvation!!1 John 1:10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
God let me see a vision one day, that I want to add on here. I saw a Christian person,who said she was born again,leafing through a pornograpy magazine,I saw she was talking dirty & behaving in a sexual immoral way.I then saw Jesus coming on a white horse for His Church/Bride (rapture)or caught up ( 1Thess.4:13-17)see, now she was serving sin,death & satan. Well, Jesus passed her by. She was left for Great Tribulation. Matt.24:21.............playing with sin,death & the devil is not at all worth everlasting death in hell & the lake of fire.Mark9:45,46 & Rev.20:10-14
if a born again believer should slip and sin,that is to fib,gossip,maybe cuss....Holy Spirit immediately pricks our conscience,(
we immediately repent away from ,and confess unto God immediately what we did, asking for His forgiveness.
A true Born again believer, walks & talks with God,serving God... so you cannot serve 2 masters (God & Satan) 1John3:6-10...........Even Jesus said, these honor Me with their lips while their hearts are far from Me (unto religion,spirits other then God,religious works,things of this life & not of God.
many sinners say , no they do not sin, that God made them that way, or it just is not sin.All have sinned.(We must know God & Know His Word, do not be deceived by religion example Matt.23)
This is all there is to being born agan, believing God,receiving Christ into our hearts,repenting away from all sins & confessing them unto God & being forgiven by God & cleansed (by His shed Blood) from all unrighteousness , or sins...so now, because we believe ,received & have repented & confessed to God & are forgiven (for this ) now we are baptized, it is as a testimony to all family,friends & church family.........how we have chosen to live for Christ now, and to pick up our cross daily , no matter what, and follow Jesus Christ!!I will give you scriptures on baptism:Jesus was baptized at age 30!! He was not a sinner, He was sinless, He was God in the flesh!!!Matt.3:16, He let us see how to, and He received the Power of Holy Spirit :Matthew 3:16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:Matthew 3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.!!Jesus then began His Ministry here on earth for you & for me.Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.(see, you must Believe 1st (as I have walked you through)then we are baptized as testimony of our faith in Christ , and that we are saved!!Acts 2:41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.see, 3,000 heard & believed & received Christ as Lord & were baptized!!!Gladly received his word(they heard & believed)Acts 18:8 And Crispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his house; and many of the Corinthians hearing believed, and were baptized.(HEARING...BELIEVED...and were BAPTIZED.
Galatians 3:27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.Now we are fullly clothed in Christ and are no longer naked(sinners) before God,without Christ.
Now,why do we have to be born again?
God is so Holy, He cannot look upon sins.......here are the abominations to God, that WE absolutely must turn away from.:1 Corinthians 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators,(sex without marriage) nor* idolaters,(anyone or anything you put ahead of God, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, Nor homosexuals nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 1 Corinthians 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.;even religion serving religion and not God=idolatry ,asking other spirits and not God This is serious,He will say,depart from Me I never knew you also see Gal.5:19-21.........Being Born again in Christ by His shed Blood as we have talked about, has set us free from sin:we no longer serve sin,death,hell , the grave & lake of fire(satan)but now we serve God & His Righteousness.See there are 2 masters(God & Satan)everyone belongs to one of these 2 & serves them see:***1 John 3:6 Whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. *** 1 John 3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.*** 1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. *** 1 John 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. *** 1 John 3:10 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.So, you can begin to see clearly now, why we MUST be born again and how!!!
I asked God one day,what do you mean,narrow is the gate & FEW enter there in..(example)He said, imagine there are 7 billion people on this earth, say only 1 billion will enter into My Kingdom.These are they who know Me through Christ and are the sealed,unto redemption.;and are under the blood of Christ.
Matt.7:21-23 many profess Jesus Christ & are not saved at all, just saying you believe is not enough to save you apart from genuine REPENTANCE (Luke13:3)turning away from all sins.These will cry Lord let us in, and He will say depart from Me you cursed into everlasting destruction, for I never knew you.(SEE:we believe In Him Not About Him!!(you cannot do away with any part of the word of God,if God instructs us, to change, that is to turn away from , or to repent away from sins,or ELSE (Luke 13:3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish...........this means,if you continue to serve sin & the devil, and you die, your soul will perish in hell & the lake of fire...........God has nothing whatsoever to do with sin. the Reason why...we (must) be born again
You can see according to 1cor.6:9,10 no sin will ever enter into God's Kingdom, EVER.
Now, the devil will make you feel, that by following Christ & dying to sins (Rom.6 & Rom.8 & Col.3) you will not have anymore fun. This is false...sin & death are not fun. Livng for God, having life & fellowship with God is life & having fun!!!The devil talks backwards...by this, you can know them by their fruits, what comes out of their mouths comes out of the abundance of their hearts...Religion calling sinners unto her ( for salavtion & forgiveness) is of the devil & not of God at all. God gave us Christ Jesus(our Once & for all sacrifice,not a church!!!no church can save you, no religious acts can save you, only God draws you unto His Son for His salavtion & His forgivess by His shed Blood see John1:13***(John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.He gave His Son, not a church, we are the church,(born again Spirits in Christ)...Now look at Matt.23 ,study it......................Jesus paid it all for you by his shed Blood, just believe God & receive Christ, your Once & for all sacrifice 1cor.5:7 Jesus said,,,, it is Finished...no works........believe & receive and Repent & confess!!!
Right here & right now, you can believe what I am telling you & showing you according to scriptures from the Word of God (Holy Bible)...so right now, you can (in your heart believe & confess Jesus as Lord & be born again!!)Just by saying a simple prayer to God asking Him for His salvation & His Forgivenes & asking Christ into your heart to be lord over your life (as seen in Rev.3:20) and confessing it Rom.10:9,10...............you cannot get right before receiving Christ, you cannot do it alone, only by belieivng & receiving Him can you ever be born again.( .spiritual birth) .John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.So, we are made in His image,spirit , dwelling in these created earth bodies,these bodies are not our life..these bodies will die & go back to the dust of the earth, so the flesh body cannot be born again or saved!!!Thus, no religious act can save you nor any religion...it is all about God & not at all about man.WE are to live for God thru Christ Jesus .UnRepentant sinners,not worshiping God through Christ..will not see heaven (
Ezekiel 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: ***the soul that sinneth, it shall die***.Lastly, please know, if Christ should come today for us(God's Purchased Church. or Bride,and you are not walking with God, you are not connected to God Through Christ & His shed Blood by His Spirit in you, you are not His, you are not Born again,He will not receive you into everlasting life, oh how you must see this,please know,being Born Again(John3:3 & John14:6 is departing away from sin ,the devil,death , hell & the grave,and being reconciled back unto the Father,walking in relationship with God in Jesus' Mighty Name see :John 14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.See, this is resurrection to life(should your earth body die and (you are truly born again )Jesus will receive your born again Spirit to everlasting life) Now I will show to you Resurrection to death:Rev.20:10-14 God will resurrect all death & hell & Judge it all into everlasdting destruction , the lake of fire , this is the 2nd death, hell ( mark9:45,46 is the 1st death.if you serve sin(1Cor.6:9,10...Gal.5:19-21.......anything against God's Laws...you are NOT Born Again...........and are headed to hell & the lake of fire.Being Born Again in Christ by His shed Blood, you do not strive to sin, you strive to do God's Will,to live for God & to Worship God through Jesus Christ by His Spirit!!!This is the bitter part of the Mystery of the little Book in Rev.(sin,death,hell,grave,lake of fire) (we can not ever be perfect..the flesh does war against our born again Spirit)but by the power of the shed Blood of Christ who dwells in us col.1:27,and by the power of Holy Spirit in us,Eph.1:13,14 we can resist the devil & his temptations, we now can choose not to serve that sin but to stay with the Lord,keeping our eyes fixed upon Jesus,plesasing God, by doing His Will and not serving the sin, but serve the righteousness of God,amen!!!
Let me point out to you, when Christ was on the cross , He had all of our sins on that body, being nailed to the cross....and so God had to leave..God is too Holy & cannot look upon any sin.......so the Lord cried out, Father, why hast thou forsaken me?Then He gave up His Spirit to the Father ,it is so important that you learn from this Blog, what being born again is....#1 being set free ,repented of all sins,confessing to God all sins ^ & Being forgiven,cleansed by His Soul cleansing Blood from all unrighteousness heb.9:11-15 & rom.3:25 , This is the real reason for us having to be born again(This is the Sweet of the mystery of the little Book in Rev. see :.John 3:3 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. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Jesus is the only way & not by eating a wafer(false teaching)nor by being baptized (false teaching) if this were so, then Christ did not have to die for you & me, and shed His Blood for you & me, nor is there any such place as purgatory(false teaching) no 2nd chances after you die, you are what you are when you go & your sins(works) will follow You & you will be judged by them Rev.20:12,13this is what it means to be born again
Being born again, being a brand new spirit or creature, in Christ, means we love God & receive Christ & want to follow Him & the Rightesousness of God, not sin & death of the devil. Being Born again, means we no longer serve sin & the devil, but we serve God & His Righteousness.
Religion has made being born again a religious act, which cannot save anybody.(Matt.23)
Finally,being Born again (John3:3)you do not strive anymore to sin, and you must die to all sins , all lusts & desires of the flesh Rom.6 & Rom.8 & Col.3(working out our salvation with God in trembling & fear............sin cannot ever enter into God's Kingdom(New Jerusalem , above)(1cor.6:9,10)
Do not think, you can say with your lips, yes I believe , and continue on sinning, if you sin, your master is still the devil, if you indeed are born again in Christ by His shed Blood, you no longer serve sin 1John3:6-10 die to all sins 1cor.6:9,10 if you serve sin, you are NOT born again, and if you should die, Christ will not receive you...This is vitally important, last day message from God, as He lays it on my heart to get this bitter sweet message out to you in these last days.(See the bitter is that sin does lead to death & hell & the grave, and pastors fail God today by not teaching this message,They fear teaching what sin is & its' consequences.)BUT the Sweet message is the shed Blood of our Lord & Savior,forgivensss of all sins,everlasting life in Christ & a Personal relationship with Most Holy Father God,and our worship of Him,Praise His Holy Name. Sinners are the unrighteous and have no relationship with God, in fact He knows them not ,they cannot enter in Matt.7:21-23 on
