KEY SCRIPTURE “John 3:3 KJV” 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.”
After Nicodemus had given his first remarks about Jesus, the Lord who knows the greatest need of man interjected with the following statement.
Joh 3:3 KJV “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. “Most Christians have a very poor understanding about this born-again issue. You are either a victorious or a defeated Christian depending on your right understanding of this born-again experience or either wise.
Man is a Spirit who has a soul and lives within a body.
1 Thessalonians 5:23. When a man leaves the body, he is described as dead. James 2:26 KJV” For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also”. The spirit is the real you. Our parents gave birth to us with a spirit that came through them. That spirit of man, which we were born with is separated (Rom 5:12) from God and so subjected to the influence of Satan. Eph 2:2&3.It is also spiritually dead.
There is also an evil principle that works within our very spirit. It is called the law of sin and death. Romans 8:2. The product of this law is sin, wickedness, diseases of all kinds, fear anger of rage and an absence of peace. This is the state of every man who has not made Jesus Lord of his or her life.
Now when one is born again, his or her spirit is completely recreated or regenerated Titus 3:5, Eph 2:10. Titus 3:5 KJV “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;” At the moment one is born again his Spirit which is the real being is completely made anew or become newly created. The bible describes him or her as as a new creation (2 Corinth 5:17). It is created after the resurrected spirit of our Lord Jesus. Eph 1:19,20. This new man is not a renewal of the old, no. The old was buried with Jesus, and the new is THE SAME AS THE RESURRECTED SPIRIT OF JESUS.1 Corinth 6:17,Rom 6:5 KJV For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: (Read Gal 2:20).
Your spirit which is the life force of your being now comes from above. The word born again means born from above. YOU ARE NOW A SAINT. Your spirit has eternal life. John 3:16,1 John 5:11-13. Death has been abolished from your spirit, but life and immortality reigns in you now .2 Timothy 1:9,10.
Being born again is a miracle that takes place in your innermost being. It is not just turning over a new leaf. It is a complete change of the life force of your being. You become a son of God. Your former spirit was a product of your earthly father and mother, now GOD IS NOW YOUR REAL FATHER John 1:13. You can make the power within your spirit come into force through your faith and bold declaration of the mighty power at work in you. SIN, SICKNESSES, DEMONIC CONTROL ARE ALL THINGS OF THE PAST.
THOUGHT:TO BE BORN AGAIN IS THE REAL DEAL.
1Peter 1:23 KJV “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.”
John 1:13 KJV “Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”
