                II Timothy 2:15 

                  Born Again From Above
Born Again from above is a Supernatural Rebirth from God. The Word God is only a Title. Like the Titles Father, Son, Holy Ghost (or Spirit), Children of God and Sons of God. The terminology is Family Orientated so we may visualize our relationship with God. Example: There is a Bride and a Groom. Christ is the Groom, we are the Bride.The Hebrew spelling of the major name of God in the Old Testament translated in most english Bibles as " LORD " or "JEHOVAH." The Bible will interprete itself if we will let it. By the guidance of the Holy Spirit of God. We can always find cross references for scripture. The Old Testament prophecies the New Covenant. The New Testament Scriptures will line up with the Old Testament Scriptures. God does not contradict Himself !The Word of God, Will Not Contradict itself. If there is confusion or a misunderstanding, it is of Our Own ! NOT GOD !
The Supernatural Birth / Flesh and In the Spirit / From God

                   " The Born Again Doctrine "

The Born Again Doctrine is taken from the Book of John Chapter 3. Where Jesus says to Nicodemus.                           

John 3:3 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.

This term, "Born Again" has been so misinterpreted. It is being used as a false doctrine to decieve the world. The Christian Religion uses it as a stamp of completion in the physical body now. They say, they are Born Again and are saved ! They claim, their ready to enter into the kingdom of God, right now in the Flesh ! Many, Christians claim to be saved and just merely Believe in the LORD as their savior. And then continue on living the way they feel is right.......                                                                

This is a DANGEROUS AREA, the [name it] and [claim it] Christianity !  It is the same nature that Lucifer acquired. It is the "Evil Nature". God [DID NOT CREATE LUCIFER EVIL] !Look for the "Nature Study" on the website sub-title list on the right side ? Look under ? "Where Did The Evil Nature Come From"                      

It comes from Self~Will and False~Reasoning !                         [The Human Nature / The Flesh or The Carnal Minded]             In John 3:4 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 ? Jesus then went on to explain to Nicodemus in              

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.                                                                                                              

Jesus is pointing out (2) Births. One is a Natural Birth from the water (the womb of a woman). And the other is a Supernatural Birth (from God above). Jesus said, in  John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Born Again may be translated either "again" or "from above." Perhaps both ideas should be combined here, to indicate the repetition of an act from another source. Different Religious Organized Groups claim to be "Born Again" in different  ways ! 

For example:                                                                                                                          

The Pentecostal's have a Born Again formula for Salvation:                                                                                                      (1.) Repentance                                                                                     

(2.) Being baptized in the name of Jesus Only.                    

(3.) Then you must speak in tongues as a sign of recieving the Holy  Spirit.Then they say, you have been "Born Again" of God from Above ! 

The Baptist  have a Born Again formula for Salvation:           

(1.) Repentance                                                                       

(2.) You must Believe the LORD died for your sin and He then, rose again from the grave on the 3rd day.   

(3.) A PRAYER asking Jesus into your Life ! And then Poof they [pronounce you "Born Again"]. Later you will be told you need to be baptized into the membership of their church (Building).    

And this "Born Again" doctrine they teach only out of the book of John Chapter 3. It becomes a One Verse Plan of Salvation. But, do you wont the Truth ? Then we must make sure it lines up with the scriptures [The Inspired Word of God]. Precept upon precept and line upon line, from the front of the Bible to the back ! How was Jesus "Born Again" ? With the exception He was the Spirit of God Manifested in the Flesh and walked the earth and died for the sin of the world. That we all may be saved, that Believe upon Him.

CHRISTIANS SAY, THEY CALL THEMSELVES THAT. BECAUSE THEY ARE TRYING TO BE CHRIST-LIKE ! O.K, LETS BE BORN AGAIN CHRIST-LIKE THEN. HE SET THE EXAMPLE ! JESUS WAS BORN LIKE US WITH ANOTHER EXCEPTION ! HE WAS BORN OF A VIRGIN WOMAN [MARY]. THE VIRGIN BIRTH WAS A SIGN THAT IT WAS A SUPERNATURAL BIRTH ! SHE CONCIEVED NOT FROM ANY MAN ON THIS EARTH ! BUT FROM THE SPIRIT OF GOD FROM ABOVE ! WITH THAT SAID;                                            

(1.) Jesus was born of a Natural Birth from the womb of a woman.[Like He told Nic.]                                                                    

(2.) Jesus was crucified, He died in the Physical Flesh. (Place in the Tomb or Grave)                                                                                 

(3.) Jesus was Resurrected from the dead by God, [Born Again from God Above] Jesus went from Flesh to Spirit from God Above. When Jesus appeared to the disciples after His Resurrection.                                                                                            

Luke 24:37 But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.                                                                                     

Then in Luke 24:38~39 And he (Jesus) said unto them, Why are ye troubled (or scared) ? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts ?    Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. He has been Resurrected from the dead by God above. And also we have that hope and promise to be Resurrected from the dead. To live with Jesus for Eternity.                                                   

1Corintians 15:20-23 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.

We are the afterward of His coming in that verse from that scripture. The Supernatural Birth is just that, from God above. You can't say, " Poof......."  I'm Born Again or Pronounce anyone Born Again from God above. That is like pulling the rug out from underneath the LORD, while He is standing on it ! That is the work of Our LORD to determine who is and who isn't entering into the kingdom of God. We have professing Christians, asking all these questions of each other. And when one dont believe like the other one believes.  

One Will Tell The Other They Are Not Saved or They Dont Believe Their a Christian ! They have just made themselves God, by saying, and making that judgment. In I Corinthians Chapter 15 verses 35-58 It Tells Us About the Spiritual Body [the one everyone cliams to have now] This Chapter Cross References John Chapter 3. Meaning it teachs a deeper meaning of what the True Born Again Is !                                         

1Corinthians 15:35-40 But some man will say, How are the dead raised up ? and with what body do they come ? Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die: And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain: But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body. All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. 

There are celestial bodies and bodies terrestrial:

Strong's Hebrew and Greek Dictionaries defines them as.                                                                 

(1.) the terrestrial body is worldly (physically or morally):~earthly, in earth, terrestrial.                       

(2.) the celestial body; above the sky: celestial (in) heaven (-ly), high.We are terrestrail being's, of this world (flesh), not celestial (heavenly bodies) this a fact. To say, we are heavenly already. It's Just All Wrong !                                                                     

1Corinthians 15:41-44 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

It will take a resurrection from the dead ! To be Born Again into a Spiritual Body [FROM GOD ABOVE]. HE has the power to do that ! (WE DONT), though, many already tell others if their saved or not saved it will take a resurrection in the flesh                                     

1Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. (Jesus was made the last Adam, a quickening spirit) were not of a quickening spirit yet. You can't cliam it ! Go back to verse 35-36 ?                                                           

1Corinthians 15:46-47 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. 

This is also found in cross referencing with scriptures in John 3:31.                      

John 3:31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.                                          

1Corinthians 15:48-50 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.                                                                                            

This verse also lines up in cross reference with John 3:3 and also John 3:5 John 3:3 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.                                                      

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.

When you find yourself in a struggle ? Ever wonder why ? Your Still in the Flesh ! A Spiritual Body is born from God above is not going to have a struggle living for God !                                                                  

1Corinthians 15:51-53 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

This is Born Again from God above ;      

(Your Incorruptible and Immortal).Your neither one, in the Flesh.......Before we enter into the kingdom of God. We must be made incorruptible. We can't do this ! Only, God can make that Change ! We must put on immortality. We can't do this ! Only God, can give us Immortality (Eternal Life). This is Our New Spiritual Body !                                                            

1Corinthians 15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

But, many teach we already have this victory. What does scripture say ? After this all happens; then shall be brought to pass that is written, death is swallowed up in victory.                                                               

1Corinthians 15:55-58 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory ? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

If we claim to be Born Again and were not....... we are a False -Witness. We have a False~Testimony. We are claiming to be someone were not. This is the same definition also for a Hypocrite as well. We are Acting like we are something that were not. And out of Ignorance, the most damaging thing you over looked !  

We are trying to go around the RESURRECTION or to REJECT the RESURRECTION. Which is, WHAT WE BASE OUR TOTAL BELIEF UPON AS CHRISTIANS !

WE SERVE A LIVING SAVIOR ! To Profess to be Born Again in the flesh is making yourself a FALSE~WITNESS....... What is a FALSE~WITNESS ? A person who gives FALSE~TESTIMONY or tells lies about others in an attempt to UNDERMINE their credibility or slander their character. Such testimony is specifically prohibited by the Ten Commandments;  

Exodus 20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

          Paul WARNED those of his day.......                          

1Corinthians 15:11-18 Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed. Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead ? But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not. For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.  

I'm looking foward to the day, I can be tranformed back to the way God intended man to be. Sinless, Obedient, and live for ever with Him. But, this time around we will get to see God, in all His Glory through His son Jesus Christ....... This message will not be recieved by many ! Because they have this False Sense of Security in the Flesh ! They are ready for the kingdom of God, right now ! But, in Truth and by Scriptures [The Inspired Written Word of God]. It takes a Resurrection from the dead and a touch from God Above to be transformed into this New Born Again Spiritual Body we all cliam to have now....... BE WARNED ! {If We Claim To Be Born Again From God Above} In A Supernatural Body or Experienced Rebirth in the Flesh Now !

(1.) It makes us a Liar

(2.) It makes us a Hypocrite

(3.) It causes us to live our lives in vain for the LORD

(4.) It makes us a False~Witness

(5.) To claim this it shows we reject the Resurrection of our LORD

 I would like to leave you with these last scripture from 1Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

2Corinthians 4:16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

What is Born Again from God above ? It is not Corruptible and Mortal. 1Corinthians 15:44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

May, the LORD our GOD bless you through this study.......

In His Name Give All The Glory

1Corinthians 15:19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.             

What Must I Do To Be 

 Saved ?

I.Repentance:                                                        

Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.                                                                                         

Matthew 4:18-19 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

II.Conversion:                                                            

Psalms 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.                                 

Ephesians 4:23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;                                                                                          

Romans 12:1-2 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.                                                                            

2 Corinthians 5:17-21 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; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.                                        

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 2

Corinthians 4:16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

III. Sanctified (Sanctification):  

Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:                                    

1Thessalonians 4:3-8 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour; Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God: That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified. For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness. He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit. Those sanctified are committed to the Truth of God and serve as wittnesses to His power and grace in the world.......                                                         

John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.                    

Romans 6:11-13 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.                             

2 Timothy 2:21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.      

IV. Justified (Justification)               

Justification; is the act or event when God both declares and makes a person just or right with Him....                                                            

Romans 5:9-11 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. Justifcation is not accomplished by personal merit or good works.......                                                                                  

Galatians 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

 

 

But, by the grace of God through personal faith in Christ.......                                                             Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

 

 

To be justified is to have peace with God and hope for eternity.......                                                                

 

 

Titus3:5-11 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men. But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.

 

 

 

Justified                                                                     

Romans 2:8-16 But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: For there is no respect of persons with God. For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; (For not the hearers of the law are just before God,but the doers of the law shall be justified. For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;) In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

In God We Trust and All Others Make

Sure They Line-Up With The Word of

God.......
