Know WHY YOU MUST BE Born Again?

Because the truth is that...
YOU simply cannot face God the way you are!

'Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God!' 1 Cor.15

'Except a man is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God!' John 3:3

'... let alone enter it!' John 3:5


Oh No. {gasp} It's too late! You died... 'Unregenerated'

Don't you be one of the MANY who find out (too late) AFTER they die (like this guy did) that each of us ABSOLUTELY MUST be Regenerated - Born Again of Above BEFORE we can be made fit / made right / made holy to live with an absolutely Loving but also a Holy God. For this we Must become Born Again through faith in Jesus Christ, then we will KNOW HIM as we become crucified with Christ, thus receive NEW LIFE from on High to be able to LIVE this Sanctified to the Truth Life unto God!

Jesus says: "You MUST enter in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and there are MANY that go that way: But strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads to life, and FEW there are that find it." Matthew 7:13-14

WE MUST FIND A WAY TO GET OURSELVES OUT OF ADAM....

Wherefore, as by one man (Adam) sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned...Rom 5:12

AND GET OURSELVES INTO CHRIST!!

For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 1 Cor 15:21-22

***********************************

You came here - LKING FOR THE TRUTH - as it is found only in Christ! So what say we just dispence with all the usual formalities, ok? and let's CUT RIGHT TO THE CHASE?....


Hell is scary enough and true, but I would like for you to read the story of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16, for instance, and get some sense of it before we go on....

Today more than ever it seems that no matter who it is that dies (whether they are a self-proclaimed Christian, church goer, cult member, atheist or agnostic), you always hear either how they believe that they just fade away back into nothingness again, or believe that because they've tried hard to live a GOOD life on earth and that all this GOOD they did would hopefully outweigh all the BAD they did, and they were depending on all this GOOD as their ticket to heaven, or Nirvana, or 80 black-eyed beauties, or whatever they think heaven is.

After listening to what others are saying, the dead aren't 'just' in heaven mind you, but they're up there playing golf, ruling a world or two, laying back and sipping a cool pina coloda, even being served by 80 or so black-eyed beauties, or just enjoying their favorite past-times, forever, as they look down and smile upon the rest of us left here to struggle and live the hard life they left behind!

However, the way to be saved is: By knowing and believing Who His Son is and Who The Father says He is, and that Jesus Christ has paid the full price for us and our sins on the cross -- that He died, was buried, and three days later He rose from the dead and ascended back into heaven as God's New Man. From before the foundations of the world, God decided that He would take and have us (who believe) placed in and crucified with Christ, buried with Him, and raised us to New Life in Him when He arose from the dead. Today God is offering the Free Gift of His Son to anyone who wants it. It is this Gospel that must be heard and obeyed by believing.

Upon our Hearing this Gospel, -WE- are the ones who become convinced that -WE OURSELVES- are the very same sinners that Jesus came to seek and to save by dying for, as we cry out to Him to save us!
We become convinced that we have no righteousness of our own with which to stand before God in. Our own rigtheousnesses and goodnesses; the very best that we are and can do, are as filthy rags, as we await the judgement of the accursed and damned, that causes us to cry out all the more in need of God ro save us.

We cry out: "What must I do to be saved?" as we realize that we must be saved and born again... but how? - I know now that I need to know and have Jesus Christ personally as my Lord and Savior through my having a saving knowledge and relationship with the Son of the living God Before I die!

And the answer?: "Come and Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ!"

What God wants us all to know and understand is this:
"God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. Therefore he that has the Son has life; and he that doesn't have the Son doesn't have life." I John 5:11.12

This Gospel is to let us know two things...
1- That God; being Full of Love and Patience and Grace and Kindness and Mercy and Forgiveness gives every man a chance to repent of their sins in making a way for us to come to Him through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ!

2 - That God; being Perfectly Holy and Sovereign, will do everything He says He will, and whether you know it, believe it or not at the time, matters not. Unlike man, the Lord NEVER Lies! So it PAYS to find out, heed what He says, and rightly fear Him!

Every now and then people suddenly get a twinge of conscience (especially after someone close to them dies) and then they go about trying to clean up their act! They do so by trying to be better people, committing themselves to going to church more often, become more religious, get more involved with others, even help those less fortunate, and so on.

These are nothing but "works", and these Self-works are done for the purpose of drawing one closer to God. However, these are the very things done to do away with Jesus and His finished work already done on the cross Those who do them are the same people who (deep down) dread the loss of losing something they never had: "Heaven", and fear the pains of gaining something they don't want: "Hell". So rather than come to Jesus, they instead turn their backs on Him by doing something to help alleviate their guilty conscience, other than knowing the Blood that Jesus shed.

There is nothing wrong with doing these "Good Works", but not if you think they're going to help save you from God's wrath. The ones who have rejected Christ do them as one of several "Methods" or "Ways" they use to try and help save themselves, help cover over their past sins, and / or help score brownie points with their own version of their man-made God. It is in the very doing of these things that makes them feel justified for entering heaven and God's throne, thereby totally avoiding and rejecting the cross. They need to read scriptures as Ephesians 2:8-9.

Because so many today fear the loss of heaven (something they have no idea of) and dread suffering the pains of hell (something they have no idea of), all they end up doing by these "Works" is really ending up trying to "preserve and keep their own Adamic life intact" (by never coming to the Cross) and come out smelling like (in their version of God) the proverbial rose.

Because they are unregenerated they do it all under their own power and strength! Oh sure, many of them may even give up what they consider to be some of the more Obvious and evil habits and works, like smoking, swearing, drinking, kicking the dog, uncaring for what happens to others, etc., done for the bottom line of hoping to gain heaven some day.

The Lord isn't interested in our cleaning up the outside of us while leaving the inside of us filthy and unchanged. "WE" all desperately need to be "CHANGED" - Made Anew! But first we must allow Him to come and clean up the "Inside" - The Sinful Person - First. Then we can help Him clean up the outward Vessel through having our feet washed (John 13:10). (Not the other way around!)

Our "Physical Death" doesn't END the Short Chapters of our lives, it only BEGINS the One Long and Final Chapter... one that will last; either in heaven with God or burning in hell for... Eternity! GOD SAYS: "YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN - OF ABOVE!" We were all born ONCE through fallen, sinful human parents of flesh and blood whose descendants were Adam and Eve. Because of sin, ALL of us were born SEPERATED from God Spiritually. We are VOID of ETERNAL life!

What must we do to be "Saved"? What is the one lone requirement that is absolutely necessary to enable us to live with a Holy, Loving and Righteous God now and after death? It is to "BELIEVE on the Lord Jesus Christ"!

We sin because we were born to sin! Thanks to Adam, when he sinned we acquired the nature of a sinner. Simple! In order to enter into God's Kingdom we must ALL die to the old and become be born-again - only this time born sinless of above, born of God - and when we have been crucified with Christ we will KNOW this ABSOLUTELY. We will KNOW FOR SURE WITHOUT DOUBT that He saved us and that we are His and He is ours! Our one true spiritual need is for each one of us to come to our own personal Faith and Love-filled relationship in the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ who we see is precious beyond any price!

When Peter understood who Jesus really was, is the same moment he recognized himself for who he was as well, and fell down at Jesus' knees and cried out: "Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord." Luke 5:8

We too MUST recognize both natures: Our sinful / unregenerated nature as well as God's Holy / Pure nature and act accordingly to what we see and know is the Truth. It is the "Conviction" found in God's word made alive by the Spirit who gives us recognition and makes us aware of our true spiritually dead, sinfully lost and fallen condition before God!

It's not so much "WHAT WE DO" that matters, but it's "WHO WE ARE"!

So no matter what YOU do or how hard YOU try in order to gain God and heaven, YOU cannot! We ALL need to be put to death with Christ and converted from being "Born A Sinner" to being "Born A Christian", and this "Miracle" is something that the world (with ALL of it's holy rituals, laws, masses and churches) can't give because it doesn't have it to give. Only "Christ" is, has and gives...MY PEACE I GIVE TO YOU - PEACE WITH GOD to those who seek "Him" through faith in Him alone, coming to Him in love out of a real need to be forgiven and made whole, Knowing that it is imperative as to why and the way that they MUST be Born Again!

His FREE Gift of eternal life through faith can only be graciously accepted, for it is given to us totally unearned and unmerited! Therefore, one can only be saved 'Through Faith in Christ alone' apart from any laws (church or otherwise), church memberships, doing religious rituals and works (i.e. taking part in penances, confessions, communion, masses, repetitious prayers, altar calls, signing a card, making a vow, etc.). Christ ALONE saves. Remember, doing any or all of these will save no one.

God is completely satisified with the WORK done on the Cross and the Person of Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son. Throw out everything else! All other works come short of paying the price DEMANDED by the Holy God for sin, and all other persons fall short of God's own Son.

Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name other than Jesus Christ under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Jesus laid down His life as PAYMENT IN FULL for us Sinners and Sins that WE can NEVER help Him pay for regardless of what anyone or any religion may tell you. "JESUS CHRIST" PAID FOR THEM ALL ONCE AND FOR ON THE CROSS (never to be repeated)! As He said: "IT IS FINISHED!" John 19:30 Believe On Him, come, reach out and receive! He did it all! THAT is how much He loves us!

God's New Man is the Lord Jesus Christ who rose from the dead! Now through Christ, God is in the business of Fathering new men, new sons, ALL made in the image of His only begotten Son, All Born Again by the Grace of God by "Faith" (not by works) in Jesus Christ!

The moment a person realizes the workings of the amazing love of God in Him he becomes Born Again realizing that God saved him from the hell fire and eternal damnation he so rightfully deserved. He can only weep and stand in awe, STUNNED over God's amazing love, mercy and grace... in the face of Jesus Christ.

HEAR again God's own Word on, "Why we all Must be born again..."

A: John 3:3 -- Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be bornagain, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

B: John 3:5 -- 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.

C: John 3:6 -- Because that which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit!

D: John 3:7 -- Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be bornagain.

E: 1 Cor 15:50 -- Because flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God!

F. Heb 12:29 For our God is a Consuming fire

G. Isa 33:14 ...Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?

H. John 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be bornagain.

I. And if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

J. 1 Peter 1:23 Being bornagain, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

K. I John 5:10-12
10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

L. Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: *IF* any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

M. John 14:23-24
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, *IF* a man love me, he will KEEP my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
24 He that loveth me NOT keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.***

Now in order to KEEP verse 23, you MUST be Born Again... IF you love Him, you will! Only then will you have received the Power from on High (The Saving Knowledge of Jesus Christ) to be enabled to Live the Born Again Christian Life!

Read My Testimony!

Are YOU born again?

"Seek-and ye shall find! Ask-and it shall be given! Knock-and it shall be opened to you!"

Behold, NOW is the accepted time; behold, NOW is the day of salvation. (2 Cor 6:2) not later


Bottom line:
