New Birth

The New Birth is not a Christiain doctrine, nor church membership, nor a set of rules, nor a system for change, nor observing religious duties, or observing the "golden rule," or doing good deeds, or being moral, or being cultured and refined, or doing your best. 

Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, He is the atoning sacrifice for the sins of the whole world (1 John 2:2). 

Being born again is an event that happens to a person.  It is not a belief, or a mental acceptance of the truth of Jesus Christ, it is a heart conversion.

When a person accepts the fact that he or she is a sinner and asks Jesus Christ to forgive them of their sins, and invites Him to come into their lives, that person is born again at that moment. Jesus Christ enters that persons heart to live forever (Ephesians 1:13,14). Born again means you become a new person with a new spirit that is alive towards God.

Most people don't understand how they've been made.  The Bible tells us that we humans are a spirit, with a soul (mind, emotions, will), and we live in a body. Did you know that?  That is written in 1 Thessalonians 5:23.  We can say that our body is our earth suit that makes it possible for us to live on earth, but the real you is a spirit being.

That explains how we are created in God's image, God is a Spirit. God has a soul, he has emotions, he feels things just like us. That is why we have a soul with emotions. We are created in the image of God.

We were born a spirit, we have a soul, and we live in a human body.  Each of us were also born with a nature prone to sin.  We become sinful, but God is holy, sinless, so we no longer have a relationship with God.  That is why we must be born again, born with a new spirit that loves God.

Matter of fact, because of our sinful nature, we become hostile towards God. The Bible tells us that the sinful mind is hostile to God, it does not submit to God's law, nor can it do so. Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please  God.  That's written in Romans 8:7,8.

In the New Birth here is what happens. God says, "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you. And I will put My Spirit in you."  

That is what the New Birth is all about, God giving us a new heart and spirit, and Him putting His Spirit in us. We become a new person with new desires.

God loves us, but there is a dominion of darkness that is out to rob, kill and destroy as many humans as possible. John 10:10 tell us that.

The Bible tells us that "The god of this age has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the message of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:4 tells us that.

Satan is not against good morals, he is against Jesus Christ.  Satan knows it is easy to get people trusting in their own sense of goodness

But his lies cannot stand up to the truth of Jesus Christ.

If you cannot understand the message of Jesus Christ it is because Satan, along with the spirits and demons of darkness are blinding your heart and mind.  They are making sure the message of Jesus Christ is foolishness to you.

Click here: Now you need to understand who Jesus Christ is and what He accomplished in order to understand this New Birth.

You are captive to sin, you're a sinner and a prisoner under the dominion of the kingdom of darkness.  You need someone to set you free from your prison.  Haven't you noticed how dark the world is? Greed, hatred, cheating, war, murder. A ransom had to be paid for your freedom, and God paid that ransom for you.

The Bible tells us that, "God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him." That's in John 3:16,17.

A ransom had to be paid for the sins of mankind, and it had to be a price that no man could ever pay. Why?  So that everyone will have the same opportunity to be ransomed.  No favoritism.  The dumb and the smart, the rich and the poor, the same ransom was paid for everyone. Everyone has the
same chance because Jesus Christ leveled the playing field. 

Jesus Christ was that ransom.  He said, "I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me."  That is written in John 14:6.

Jesus Christ is the ransom, and He is the only way for anyone to be included into the family of God. Read Epesians chapter 2 for an explanation of that.

After He has provided purification for our sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven, and He is always interceeding for us. That is written in Hebrews 1:3, Hebrews 7:25, & 1 John 2:2.

He died on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins.  He was raised from the dead as the winner over the dominion of darkness.  Jesus Christ defeated the powers of darkness so that anyone who believes in Him will be rescued from the dominion of darkness and brought into the kingdom of Jesus Christ. That is written in Colossians 2:12 & 1:13.

Everyone has the same opportunity to be free from the dominion of sin and darkness through faith in Jesus Christ. If you're interested in this, read Romans 3:21-26.

Let me say it again, in the New Birth we are given a new heart, a new spirit, and the Spirit of God is sent into our lives.  At the same time, we are transfered from the dominion of sin and darkness into the wonderful kindgom of light (Colossians 1:13). 

And God lavishes His love upon us. Wow! What a life! (1 John 3:1) Life can be fun becasue you
are now God's child -- 1 John 3:1.

There is one more thing I want to mention: The New Birth cannot be duplicated because God created each of us as an individual. Vicki has experienced things I will never experience and I've experienced things she will never experience.  The same is true for you. God knows everything about you, and He cares for you with a deep, deep love.  He know's what's going on in all of our lives, and He knows what needs to be changed and how to make the changes.

An Invitation: If you haven’t accepted God’s free gift of eternal life, but you would like to, simply pray this prayer: “Jesus Christ, I believe you are the Son of God and that you died on the cross for my sins.  I admit that I’m a sinner, please forgive my sins and come into my life; I want to be born again.  Please show me how real you are. Also baptize me with your Holy Spirit. Thank you for accepting me.”

If you’re still a skeptic: “God, if this is true, please help me understand so that I can accept the gift of New Birth you purchased for me."
