"Born Again"???? Says Who???
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation.” 2 Corinthians 5:17-18
Every truly born again believer knows he is saved. He has no doubt that Christ has made him a completely new creature. If there is any doubt or confusion about whether or not you have been born again, this indicates that you have not been and should seek God to find out how this happens because Jesus said that it is a “must.” No one will be saved from hell due to their own good works, or religious activity or standing. Christ said “Ye must be born again.” (Jn. 3:7)
“He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.” 1 John 5:12-13
The Bible tells us that “God is love” and NO ONE needs divine mercy and love more than this writer! Can you relate? The Bible tells us that we have “all sinned” against our Maker and Judge and are guilty in His holy eyes….we have all lusted, stolen, lied, had other gods before Him, coveted, hated (murder), not honored our parents, etc….oh but that’s not the end of the story…This writer is prone to sinfulness just like you - the reader. – Aren’t you glad that Jesus had you on His mind when He was shedding His holy, sinless, and precious blood for you on that cross? (Matt. 26:28; John 19:30; Rom. 3:23; 6:23; 5:6, 8, 9) “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners of whom I am chief.” (1 Tim. 1:15) Do you know Him? Have you been born again? Go here (links below) and see what it means to truly have a relationship with the LORD and be “born again.” Why is this important? Jesus declared that “except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God….ye must be born again.” (John 3:3, 7) You cannot and will not go to Heaven unless you go God’s way and He plainly told us that His way is to be “born again.” It’s not about religion, it’s about relationship, and this is what being born again is all about. Only the LORD Himself can do this miracle and He desires to do such for you.
John 3:16 says that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son - NOT SOME RELIGION!
Most people who claim to be Christian are eager to say "I am a Baptist" or "I am Catholic" or "Protestant." But being religious will not save you from eternal damnation in hell - only Jesus Christ can do that. So, I want you to think about the very words of your own mouth when religion or spiritual things come up because Christ said "Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh." (Matt. 12:34) In other words, what comes out of your mouth reveals what is really in your heart. if your words have been anything resembling the "I'm a baptist, catholic, presbyterian, etc." it is because you do not know Jesus. Your identity is in an organization of mere sinful men. Jesus Christ is not a religion nor did He come to the earth to start a religion. The Son of God is a divine Person and He came to shed His sinless blood to bring you into relationship with Him and the heavenly Father. This is what allows you the blessing of Heaven, otherwise hell is what lies ahead for you - an in hell all your feelings, faculties, and consciousness will still be there - forever (Mark 9:42-49; Luke 16:19-30).
