You Must Be Born Again
You Must Be Born Again (cont.)
3. Know ye not, that so many of us were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? ( Not speaking of a water baptism, but a Spiritual Baptism) 4. Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 5. For if we have been planted ( united) together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: 6. Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed (rendered inoperative), that henceforth we should not serve sin. 7. For he that is dead is freed from sin. So Romans 6:3-7 takes the sinner that has been baptized into the death of Jesus Christ back 2,000 years when Jesus Christ died on the Cross, the believing sinner died with Him, when Jesus Christ was buried, the believing sinner was buried with Him, when Jesus Christ rose from the dead, that believing sinner rose with Jesus Christ in a new source of life. Who that sinner use to be is now dead, buried, and risen with Christ in a new source of life. II Corinthians 5:17, reads, Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is an new creature (creation): old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. Now that who you use to be has died with Jesus Christ, buried with Him, and risen with Him in new source of life, you are not the same person on the inside, your have been recreated ( Born Again; A Spiritual Birth) on the inside. You are the same on the outside. You have been Justified by putting your Faith in Jesus Christ and what He accomplished for all who will simply believe and put total dependence on His Finished Work at Calvary's Cross. Justification By Faith means you have been declared not guilty or innocent of past, present, and future sins. The slate has been washed clean by the Blood of Jesus Christ, His spotless righteousness has been imputed to you! When you sin you must always do what 1 John 1:9 requires us to do. If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and cleans us from all unrighteousness. ( Unconfessed sins to God is sins unforgiving).The Holy Spirit baptizes the sinner into the Death of Jesus Christ. Romans 6:3-7 explains what happens to a sinner when he or she is Born of the Spirit.
The Apostle Paul wrote in Romans 1:17, For therein
Whosoever rejects Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of their life, God The Father has a time and place for them to be Judged at the Great White Throne Judgment! (Revelation 20:11-15). 11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away, and there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God ;and the books (record of all who rejected Jesus Christ) were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works (what they did and what they didn't do). 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14 And death and hell were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the Book of Life ( a book with the names of all Christians) was cast into the Lake of Fire. I pray you make heaven your Home. It's Your Choice!
