|What Being Born Again Means|
Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden and as a result of that, sin entered the world. Every man born after Adam was cursed with death and that meant that everyone born after Adam would die and go to hell. This disobedience changed the nature of man (people) to become sinners (just like the nature of a dog is to bark, whether or not it is barking, it is still a dog). That means that sin became the nature of man and whether they lived right or not man was still a sinner.
This continued until Moses had to deliver the children of Israel out from Egypt to the Promised Land. It is then that God gave Moses the 10 commandments for the children of Israel to live by, and anyone who would have kept/obeyed the law would live and see the Kingdom of God (in brief they would go to heaven if they obeyed the law-which was the 10 commandments).
It was so difficult for the children of Israel to obey the law until God sent Jesus to come into the world to walk under the law and take our place as sinners. Jesus obeyed and fulfilled every requirement of the law. He became our substitute, died for our sins (redeemed man) and he gained dominion over death when He rose again. He then abolished the law and through His resurrection we were declared not guilty because the price had been paid with His death. This resurrection made it possible for everyone in the world to enjoy His victory, and the only way to enjoy this victory is through salvation.
Now salvation means to be born again (change of nature from sin to righteousness, through Christ Jesus), and to be born again means "to believe that Jesus came to the world and died for my sins, and that God raised Him from the dead for my justification". If you confess (say it out with your mouth) Jesus as the Lord of your life then you are born again. That’s all it takes. There are no stories of your dress code, your conduct or anything of that sort. It has to do with the recreation of your spirit to become a new creation with the nature of God. When Jesus died, He died for everybody in the world and all He requires of you to go to heaven is to just say YES to what He has already provisioned for you. You do that by accepting His Lordship over your life, through the salvation prayer below.
Once you are born again then you are a child of God and God hears your prayers and He guards over your life. From there you learn His principles of life and you become a champion in everything you do. Feed yourself with the Word of God from there to know Him more.
All it takes to enjoy this victory is to say the salvation prayer and immediately your nature is changed.
Through His Son Jesus, God showed us His love by making Him an offering for our sins to reconcile us to Himself. Through His death He showed us the way to fellowship with Him, and now He wants us to receive the divine life which Jesus made available so that He can reveal Himself in us, and through us.
Today, you can receive the life of God into your spirit, and become a brand new creature in Christ, so that God's beauty and power can be seen in you. All you have to do is say this prayer of salvation and mean it with all of your heart; and God will hear you.
Prayer of Salvation (below):
Please don’t just read this prayer in your mind, literally say it with your mouth, even if it’s under your breath. The instruction is for you to confess (speak) it with your mouth.
O Lord God, I believe in Jesus Christ, your Son who died for me and was raised from the dead for my justification.
Your Word says in Romans 10 vs. 9 & 10 "...that if thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shall be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
Therefore I confess Jesus Christ as Lord of my life from this day forth. I receive remission of sins for my soul and I receive eternal life into my spirit.
I am saved! I am born-again! Thank you for making me your child.
