Christians are those of Adam's race who have been born the second time. . . Spiritually. The fact we require a second birth indicates something was not right with our physical first birth. It points to how procreation began and to the original sin between Eve and the Serpent, a man-like creature before God changed his form and put him on his belly.
Eve disbelieved God, and when Adam took her back he forfeited our birthrightdominion over earthto Satan. God's penalty upon all who come under Satan's dominion by unbelief in His Word is death. As a consequence we are all formed in iniquity, conceived in sin, born into a world ruled by Satan, and separated from the Presence of God.
Sin is UNBELIEF in the revealed Word of God. Unlike Eve we did not choose to sin but were born under nature's fallen state, so God made a way whereby we can be redeemed.
The word "god" means "object of worship". He requires our worship, so sin or unbelief in His will is an affront worthy of death. The worship God requires is not a public expression like church attendance and hymn-singing, which we should do. He requires we worship by manifesting our faith or understanding of His will so His revealed Word "lives" through us for all to see.
We are inheritors of death through Satan when we should be heirs of Life through God. That Life Adam lost by taking Eve back could only be restored if a man born of woman who conceived by faith in God's Word (not lust) voluntarily surrendered His righteous life in our behalf. Such a kinsman Redeemer would necessarily be the firstborn of a virgin in order to be the acceptable substitute for our lives as foreshadowed by the firstborn lamb Israel offered to God.
In the six-thousand years since Adam, only one Man has met these requirements. His Name was Jesus Christ. He was born, ministered and sacrificed his life, then rose again from the grave precisely as foretold by all the prophets, shadows and typesand even the stars of heaven.
In His death and resurrection, Jesus identified His righteous life with undeserving, underserving man so that we by faith may voluntarily identify with His Life, dying to the desires of our mortal spirit and corruptible flesh, and living according to God's Word. This is the "new birth" by which the Word that once dwelt in the flesh of one Man, our Lord Jesus Christ, now lives and reigns in the flesh of many Christian men and women, boys and girls.
Faith is a clear understanding of the will of God recorded as His Word, the Holy Bible. Christians are they whose lives manifest the Word prophesied for THEIR day. The only part of His Word God can bless and fulfill in our lives is what He foretold for our day.
How can I be Born-Again?
A First you must see Jesus Christ is God manifest in the form of a virgin-born Man to pay sin's penalty for you.
You must recognize Him not as a second, third or any fraction but the fullness of the nature and character of the One Person of God expressed in a Man.
This revelation or understanding is called "justification by grace through faith." And to show that faith is genuine you must repent of your past unbelief and wrongdoing, taking scriptural water baptism by immersion in the Name of the LORD JESUS CHRIST for the remission of past sins.
B Second, you must live your life according to His Word. Up until now youyour soulhas lived to serve the
desires of your mortal spirit and flesh. From here on you must live to serve God's Word.
You will become better acquainted with His will as you familiarise yourself with His Word. Not by learning It, good as that is, but by understanding what It MEANS. The better you understand Him, the more you will please Him as you modify your life to conform with His Word.
Wherever your life does not match His Word, quickly you repent and determine that in future your life will reflect His holy will. Correction is an ongoing experience of Christian growth instilling "sanctification" or scriptural holiness.
C Third is the baptism with the Holy Spirit which is the "new birth." When you recognize the Word for YOUR
day, and see It automatically coming to pass in YOUR life, you know you are born-again. A written epistle, read and known of all men.
According to Jesus Christ, the infallible evidence of the new birth is a clear understanding of the Word for YOUR day and of future events that will come to pass in YOUR Age (John 16:13).
To commence, I suggest you download and SAVE "Unveiling The Mystery of the GODHEAD" to a directory on your HDD. The most important of all revelations is the Supreme Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, clearly set forth Scripturally on this PowerPoint presentation.
