WHY BORN AGAIN ??

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 3:7
Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

Why did Jesus say that we must be born again?
Romans 3;23
For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.

When Adam sinned he lost his ability to fellowship with God, he had once walked in that glory, but now, thru sin, he fell short of that, he lost that. He passed that curse of sin down to all of us, the separation was complete between God and man. But God did not leave us there, when Satan mocked at God, and said, what are you going to do now, God? You lost your fellowship with man, he did not know God had a plan from ages past.
That plan was Jesus, and being born again, our spirit comes back to the original state before Adam sinned and we can fellowship with God again.
The glory of God and sin cannot dwell together, that is why we need the new birth.

NATURAL MAN
Without a new born again spirit we are natural men, who cannot know God.
1 Corinthians 2;14
For the natural man recieveth not the things of the spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; neither can he know them, for they are spiritually discerned.
2 Corinthians 4:3,4
But if our gospel be hid,it is hid to them that are lost. In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

BORN OF GOD
The original Greek word for born again literally means born from above.
We cannot get into the kingdom of God any other way, than to be born from above. We cannot tag along on another persons coat tails, we cannot get in because our father is a preacher, we cannot make it by being a good person all the time. No, our way is thru Jesus Christ and His shed blood. You cannot join the family of God, you must be BORN into it from above.

John3:6
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the spirit is spirit.
John 1:13 Which were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh,nor of the will of man, but of God.
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.
1. The glory of God takes no companions, the sacrifice of Jesus no roommates, nothing we can do will give us righteousness in Gods eyes. Only the blood of Jesus will do. We cannot work for it, gain it by our actions, just by faith. No one can boast in His presence, Jesus did it all.

NEW FAMILY
Who can become born again?
John 1:12
But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold all things are become new.
He who comes to me I will in no wise cast out.
Ephesians 2:19
Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners,but fellow citizens with the saints, and the household of God.

As many as receive Jesus as Lord and savior can become born again. To us he then gives power to become children of God. We will be new creatures who can now see and understand God, and fellowship with Him. He will not see our sin, but rather the blood of Jesus, who we accept by our own will and choice. Anyone at all can come and find this new relationship with God. It does not matter what we have done, or what we have failed to do, the love of God is pure, welcoming all.

NEW CREATION
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold all things are become new.
2 Corinthians 4:6
For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ Jesus.
2 Corinthians 3:18
But we all with an open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the spirit of the Lord.
2 Corinthians 4:3
But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost, in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Now we have no veil over our face, we behold the gospel with an open face. When we were lost we had a vail like the bible says of those who do not know Christ yet.
The new creation is a brand new species in the earth. We are not as the nations in the natural state. We have a new spirit inside of us that is divine. We now represent heaven. The holy ghost killed our old spirit, our sinful nature, and now he gives the light of Christ inside of us. Gods glory has shined in our hearts and made us new. We can now read the word of God as if its a mirror, finding the glory in each page. Let it change you, from one degree of glory to another, we can receive more and more of God, from the seed of God inside of us, when we were born again and accepted Christ.
You may be born again right now as you read this little study and are in agreement with it. If that is how you feel just tell God right now, I agree with this, I know it is right by the Holy Ghost witnessing inside of me, and I want to be born again right now God. It is happening as this truth is being revealed to you, its that easy.

NEW CITIZENSHIP
The word conversation is translated in the Greek Polytuma its original meaning is citizenship. Those who live in a certain city. Another translation can mean lifestyle.
Philippians 3:20-21
For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Galatians 4:26
But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.

We now belong to a different planet, heaven. Our names are written in the new Jerusalem in heaven, it is that city where we will live forever, and represent now here on earth.

2Co 5:20 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.

We are ambassadors for Christ. An ambassador represents another country. We represent Christ here on earth, as we are citizens of heaven.

Ephesians 2:19
Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God.

God has a whole new destiny for those who have accepted His Son. We are on the glory road to heaven, and that is where our home is.
