While some gave the right path to God, none of that is being born again. I know everyone thinks it is. But it is only bringing one into salvation and a right relationship with God. But that is NOT the being born again.
We do become a new creation in Christ Jesus, after we first believe, then repent of sins, obey Acts 2:38 and be filled with the Baptism of the holy Ghost. Without this, one will not be born again.
Now some say that Jesus said believe and you are saved. No he did not say that. Some say that Paul said believe and confess and you are saved. Again, no. He did not say that either.
It is ‘sloppy’ reading. It is adding to God’s word and leaving out important verses.
Shall be, or shalt be, are FUTURE TENSE VERBS. It does NOT say you ARE, (now ) born again or saved. It says SHALL BE —(FUTURE TENSE) saved.
It means there is a strong possibility that this will happen. Look it up. But, there are many other conditions also listed by which we SHALL BE SAVED, NOT JUST BELIEVING.
Jesus said he that believes and is baptized SHALL BE SAVED.
But these believing-only folks LEAVE THAT OUT OR TAKE AWAY FROM GOD’S WORD.
This means that God will take their names out of his book of life.
Oh, I know they will not read this truth and repent of their lies. They love their lies. Keeps them from having to be baptized the Scripture way and be filled with the Holy Ghost, which they hate.
Every time being saved is mentioned in Scripture it uses this FUTURE TENSE verb…shall be.
It does not mean this is a positive thing. It means IF YOU ENDURE TO THE END, YOU SHALL BE SAVED. Same words, again, see? shall be saved….if you endure all the way to your end. Yet they take this away also.
Now here is the being born again, as taught by God:
Hosea 13: 13 The sorrows of a travailing woman shall come upon him: he is an unwise son; for he should not stay long in the place of the breaking forth of children.
14 I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from mine eyes.
Travailing, means giving BIRTH. How does a HIM travail in birth? Everyone who will be born again must give birth…to a manchild of God, just as Jesus did. We must be a virgin to God…with child…of the Holy ghost.
Then …not stay long in the place of the breaking forth of children = being born. (the womb; coming out of the womb.)
What is that place? Next verse….
I will ransom them from the GRAVE. I will redeem them from DEATH.
Jesus was manifested as a son of God by power, by the RESURRECTION. Romans 1:4.
No one is born again until God brings them out of that grave, into a glorified body. That is the New Birth….like it or not.
Everyone still in this earthly life; mortal body; is still subject to sinning and losing their soul.
Not one single scripture says, believe and you have heaven made, no matter what…..
THAT IS A TEACHING OF THE DEVIL. Look how many here preach the message of Satan.
Lets hear them teach Hosea 13.
