What it Means to Be Born Again

 

John 3:5 

King James Version

5 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.


Have you any idea how vital it is for us to be born again?

That we might understand the WORD of GOD?

So we can precisely discern Scripture?

These verses will explain more:

Matthew 3:11 

King James Version

11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance

but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, 

whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: 

he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, 

and with fire:


John 3:1-8 

King James Version

3 There was a man of the Pharisees, 

named Nicodemus, 

a ruler of the Jews:

2 The same came to Jesus by night, 

and said unto him, 

Rabbi, 

we know that thou art a teacher come from God: 

for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, 

except God be with him.

3 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.

4 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?

5 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.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.

8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, 

and thou hearest the sound thereof, 

but canst not tell whence it cometh, 

and whither it goeth: 

so is every one that is born of the Spirit.


John 4:24 

King James Version

24 God is a Spirit: 

and they that worship him 

must worship him 

in spirit and in truth.


Romans 8:9 

King James Version

9 But ye are not in the flesh, 

but in the Spirit

if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you

Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, 

he is none of his.


Romans 8:14 

King James Version

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, 

they are the sons of God.


Romans 8:26-27 

King James version

26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: 

for we know not what we should pray 

for as we ought

but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us 

with groanings which cannot be uttered.

27 And he that searcheth the hearts 

knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, 

because he maketh intercession for the saints 

according to the will of God.


1 Corinthians 2:10 

King James Version

10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit

for the Spirit searcheth all things, 

yea, 

the deep things of God.


1 Corinthians 2:14

King James Version

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.


1 Corinthians 3:11-15 

King James Version

11 For other foundation can no man lay 

than that is laid, 

which is Jesus Christ.

12 Now if any man build 

upon this foundation gold, 

silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: 

for the day shall declare it, 

because it shall be revealed by fire; 

and the fire shall try every man's work 

of what sort it is.

14 If any man's work abide 

which he hath built thereupon, 

he shall receive a reward.

15 If any man's work shall be burned, 

he shall suffer loss

but he himself shall be saved; 

yet so as by fire.


2 Corinthians 5:17 

King James Version

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, 

he is a new creature

old things are passed away

behold, 

all things are become new.


Ephesians 4:30 

King James Version

30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, 

whereby ye are sealed 

unto the day of redemption.


Colossians 3:1-4 

King James Version

3 If ye then be risen with Christ, 

seek those things which are above

where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on things above, 

not on things on the earth.

3 For ye are dead, 

and your life is hid with Christ in God.

4 When Christ, 

who is our life, 

shall appear

then shall ye also appear with him 

in glory.


1 Peter 1:23 

King James Version

23 Being born again, 

not of corruptible seed, 

but of incorruptible, 

by the word of God

which liveth and abideth for ever.
