In John 3:3 from Bible Jesus talks about importance of being born again. To be born again means transform your life and give your life to Jesus. This means a significant change brings believers into relationship with God. Like Nicodemus a highly respected religious Jewish man asked Jesus Christ privately, what to do to be saved. He asked Jesus if he had to crawl back into his mother’s womb to be born again. Jesus answered, rebirth is repentance from all sins to ask for God’s Mercy, Grace, Compassion Forgiveness of sins in humility. This spiritual change of inner spirit reconnects in tune with God through Jesus Christ the Saviour.
Jesus said the Kingdom of God has come through Jesus, the disciples plus other chosen prophets and proclaimers of the word of God. Athough all human beings are God’s creation by nature, salvation into God’s Kingdom only comes through accepting Jesus Christ. This means that those who accept Jesus become GOD’S CHILDREN. So God’s Kingdom is not automatic entry but personal agreement with GOD’S Plan to live with God. This is because God is so Pure and Holy only those cleansed by the Blood of Jesus are allowed to be in GOD’S Kingdom. So all must come with attitude of rejecting sin willing to embrace God wholeheartedly. The Bible says that all have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God. The sin against God means that nobody is without sin. Generational sin of Adam and Eve passed to all people on earth. Being born again means accepting God’s plan to be delivered and saved from punishment of sin all born with.
Furthermore, people deviate from God’s standard expectation so need Christ to restore them back to God. This implies every person on this earth needs GOD’S Forgiveness not to perish. To be born again is a necessity not a choice because all those who reject GOD’S Forgiveness face GOD’S Wrath. To be born again is a fresh birth process new beggining as new born baby in Christ. Being born again is receiving the cleansing power of the Blood of Jesus to be redeemed from sin to be forgiven by God.
Born again is not rapture transfomation of the flesh into immortality. So do not wait for rapture to be born again, this is not what Jesus told Nicodemus. For the Kingdom of God is already here among us in our hearts. Jesus is Key to qualify to enter God’s Kingdom. God demands that He Will Only Accept those who accept Christ. So born again means start afresh like an innocent baby is nurtured by the mother, spoon fed, learns to sit, stand, crawl, walk, taught to speak, learn to read and write. So stages of Christian growth requires baby steps to learn about Godly Values. Like human life one never stops learning so in Christian life a born again Christian develops spiritual faith muscles to grow into mature Christian. They start with pureed baby food to meat eventually.
A born again believer needs to continue to study the word of God. To become more aware of GOD’S words and to gain better understanding of Christian Truth. As a result born again believers have to fellowship with similar minded people for support. To focus on Christ Jesus the Head of the Church and God by loving God and loving people.
Another important thing to remember is the born again Christian is translated from the kingdom of darkness into Kingdom of the Glorious Gospel of Light of God. Though heaven REJOICES for the born again Christian the devil is furious for losing person. So begins to put impediments in way of the born again believers to discourage them. So be aware and stand strong by faith.
It can be a challenge to hold on to faith in Christ. It is true the first love blissful moment in Christianity is so wonderful as carried by older believers. But there comes a time to be weaned like a baby to begin to grow spiritually. God’s peace and knowledge reassures the believer so calms the nerves to rest in the promises of God. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new” 2nd Corinthians 5:17). Now the life I live was not one that was
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new” 2nd Corinthians 5:17). Now the life I live was not one that was Your focus shifts from depending on yourself to become committed to GOD’S Will. Desire intimate relationship close to God by access to surrender all areas of your life to God. A born again believer is under new management of Christ the Master and LORD. All future plans has to be submitted to GOD’S Approval in line with GOD’S words. So no longer free spirit floating around on every wimp but set free indeed by Christ from sin. Whom the Son of God Jesus sets free is free in Christ.
There is now no condemnation for the believer. Every shame, guilt, punishment is removed as far as the east is from the west. God does not remember or recall your sins. Forgive yourself and walk in the rest of God. So never alone for the Father God is always with you in Jesus Name. The world continues to have so many troubles but Jesus has already conquered this world. So hold onto God by faith trusting Jesus to come for you in eventual rapture in Jesus Name. Read the whole of John 3 on this conversation clarified by Jesus and Nicodemus for specific details on need to be born again in the Spirit. Then publicly acknowledge declaration of being born again by water baptism to confirm new birth and dedication into the Kingdom of God. There is no water baptism during the rapture in the cloud, so become born again then wait for Jesus to come in the rapture into heaven before GOD’S Full Wrath is unleashed on earth. To be born again is a serious life and death matter into GOD’S Kingdom so do not treat it lightly. Jesus died to save your life so respond to GOD’S LOVE in Jesus Name.
