In our first article, we introduced you to a New creature, a new specie of being.
And last week we shared with you that this New creature is the Temple of God and he is born again.
So what does it mean to be born again?
1 Peter 1:23 KJV “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.”
1 Peter 1:23 MSG “Your new life is not like your old life. Your old birth came from mortal sperm; your new birth comes from God’s living Word. Just think: a life conceived by God himself!”
To be born again means you are a born a second time as a new person and the bible explains that this new person is born of God, not of mortal sperm, but of His word, with a new nature and a new life. This happens when a man receives Jesus as Lord. When a man receives Jesus, he receives the power to become a son of God and he is born of God. This is a spiritual rebirth, because man is a spirit, who lives in a body and has a soul. Man is not a body, but a spirit.
John 3:3-5 “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. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”
John1:12-13 KJV “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”
To be born again means to be born again spiritually. And Jesus said unless a man is born again, of the Spirit, he cannot see or enter the kingdom of God. Which is why a man who is not born again does not understand spiritual things, they appear foolish to him.
1Cor2:14 “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
When you are born again, you are born as a child of God and you become Alive to God, having been born again spiritually by the regeneration of the HolySpirit. Not of his own works, but because of Gods kindness and love through Jesus Christ.
Romans 6:11 NLT “So you also should consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and ALIVE to God through Christ Jesus”
Titus3:3-5KJV “For we ourselves also WERE sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 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;”
We were saved by the renewing of the HolyGhost, born again. Praise God. And this new born again man, this new creature, this new specie of being, is born after the SECOND Adam, in righteousness and true holiness. Halleluyah!!!
Join us next week as we reveal to you more about the new creature and the second Adam.
If you are not yet born again, say this prayer below
“O Lord God, i believe with all my heart in Jesus Christ, son of the living God. I believe He died and You raised Him from the dead for me to be made a new creature. I believe He’s alive today as Lord and so i confess with my mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord of my life from this day. Through Him and in His name, I have eternal life; I am born again as Gods child. Thank you Lord, for saving my soul. Halleluyah!!!”
