 You Must Be Born Again 

John 3:1-7

You Must Be Born Again (cont.)

.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. 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 Baptism4. 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 sin7. 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 Apostle Paul wrote in Romans 1:17, For therein (through the Cross) is​ the Righteousness of God Right with God) revealed  from faith to faith ("from Faith" relates to God as the Provider and "to Faith" relates to man as the receiver) : as it is written, The Just shall live by Faith. The same Faith that gives us Divine Power to live Godly lives!

When you search for a Church you want one that preaches the object of your Faith must be in Jesus Christ and Him Crucified  alone for Salvation, and  you must maintain the same faith on a daily basis for the Holy Spirit to continue  the ongoing process of Sanctification.  The Holy Spirit doesn't automatically work in the Christian's life, if He did we would never have a failure! He works in the parameters of our Faith exclusively in Jesus Christ and what He accomplished  for humanity on Calvary's Cross. For the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the Law of Sin and Death (Romans 8:2). Now The Holy Spirit can begin bringing our Condition up to our Position, which is Sanctified, Holy, and set apart from the things of the world! With the object of our Faith in the Finished work of Jesus the Holy Spirit can produce the Fruit of the Spirit in our lives (Galatians 5:22-23). Jesus said in John 15:8Herein is my Father Glorified, that ye bear much Fruit: so shall ye be my disciples.

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!
