“But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus3:4-7”
It is erroneous teaching which says that spiritual life can be transmitted from parent to child. The grace of God does not run in human veins but it’s spiritual and experimental in its working. God has children but no grandchildren.
The doctrine of the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit is a glorious doctrine. It sweeps away false hopes. It comes to the one who is trusting in education and culture and says, “Education and culture are not enough. You must be born again.” It comes to the one who is trusting in mere external morality, and says, “External morality is not enough, you must be born again.” It comes to the one who is trusting in the externalities of religion, in going to church, reading the Bible, saying prayers, being confirmed, being baptized, partaking of the Lord’s supper, and says, “The mere externalities of religion are not enough, you must be born again.” It comes to the one who is trusting in turning over a new leaf, in outward reform, in quitting his meanness; it says, “Outward reform, quitting your meanness is not enough. You must be born again.” But in place of the vague and shallow hopes that it sweeps away, it brings in a new hope, a good hope, a blessed hope, a glorious hope. It says, “You may be born again.” It comes to the one who has no desire higher than the desire for things animal or selfish or worldly and says, “You may become a partaker of the Divine nature, and love the things that God loves and hate the things that God hates. You may become like Jesus Christ. You may be born again.”
When the Apostle Paul used the word “regeneration,” he wrote, “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” (Titus 3:5). The difference between our Lord’s use of the word and Paul’s use of it is obvious. Our Lord used it in its widest sense, of the restoration of all things, at His Second Advent to the earth. Paul used it in referring to the regeneration of the individual man, his being born again into God’s new order. This new order is the Church, the Body of Christ (Ephesians 1:22, 23), not an organization, but a spiritual person . No effort on man’s part can bring him into God’s order, for it is “not by works of righteousness which we have done” (Titus 3:5), “Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:9).
The Mistakes about Regeneration Some sincere students of religion have made wrong deductions from the Bible passages which speak of regeneration. Let us examine three erroneous views and then attempt a correct biblical interpretation. First, the mistake that water baptism is regeneration. Our Lord’s words to Nicodemus, “Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God” (John 3:5), have been given widely different interpretations. Perhaps the most dangerous of these has been, and still is, “baptismal regeneration,” the idea that the text is teaching that water baptism is necessary to salvation. But to insist that the new birth occurs as the result of water baptism makes regeneration a matter of external ritualism. Whatever Christ meant by being “born of water,” He most certainly was not referring to an outward ritual. If in His word to Nicodemus our Lord was referring to baptism by water, then it follows that all who have died and were not baptized are lost. This mistaken view would mean, then, that the penitent thief on the cross was not saved, notwithstanding the fact that Jesus said he was. If we accept the erroneous idea that baptism is a means of regeneration, then it would follow that all baptized persons are regenerated. But are they? Simon Magus was baptized, but he was not regenerated. The Scripture does say that “Simon himself believed” (Acts 8:13); however, there is a belief which is followed by regeneration, and there is a belief which might not be followed by regeneration. “The devils (demons) also believe, and tremble” (James 2:19), but such mere belief cannot save one. A person can have an intellectual concept and give mental assent to a truth or doctrine, yet never become born again. When great numbers of Samaritans heard Philip and believed and were baptized, Simon also accepted the facts and came forward to be baptized. But was he ever truly saved? It appears from Acts 8:18, 19 that Simon never did enter experientially into the truth of the Gospel. He lacked the real power of God, so he thought to purchase it with money. “But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee. For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity” (Acts 8:21-23). I interpret Peter’s scathing rebuke to mean that there was a man who, though he was baptized, was never regenerated. The “baptismal regeneration” theory is not merely erroneous but dangerous, because it holds that baptized babies of believing parents are saved, and unbaptized babies who die as such, are lost forever. This is an evil without any authority in the Bible. It is nowhere taught by Christ nor expressed in the writings of the Apostles that infant baptism was believed by them. There is no trace of infant baptism in the New Testament.
Second, the mistake that reformation is regeneration. Human reformation is superficial. Man’s nature is depraved, so much so that God Himself makes no attempt to improve it to make it fit for His holy presence. Most of us have at one time sought to improve ourselves by “turning over a new leaf” and attempting to throw off bad habits. But no matter how far one is able to proceed in the reformation of the old life, no amount of improving the fallen nature can serve as a substitute for the Divine Nature which is given us of God when we are born from above. Dr. William E. Biederwolf once said, “Every creature born into this world has a nature after its kind. You can’t train a bird to crawl, for the same reason you can’t train a snake to fly. True to his nature, a caterpillar crawls, and when we see him fly we don’t say, ‘What an accomplished caterpillar!’ But we say the creature has been changed, it has a new nature, it has been born again; it is now a butterfly. The same thing is true of the natural and spiritual man.” The best reformed person cannot measure up to God’s righteous standards. As to his understanding, he cannot know the things of God (I Corinthians 2:14); as to his will, he cannot subject himself to the law of God (Romans 8:7); as to his affections, he cannot love God (Romans 8:8). The utter inability of the natural man to enter into the Kingdom of God shows the necessity of being born again.
Most of the Christians today avail themselves God’s favor just because they are speaking right things but that is so misleading especially in this modernity we are in. Christians today think that talking about God’s grace in their lives means that their sins are forgiven and they talk anything they want thinking they possess the Kingdom of God by speaking right words.
Let me tell you friend, speaking the truth and you are not moving by the truth is like chasing the rainbows and its misguided and it cannot make you possess the kingdom of God and of Christ Jesus. Grace is not matter of talking the talk but it’s about walking the talk. Grace is not whitewashing of sins by Jesus Christ Blood Rather its utter eradication of sins by the Blood of Jesus Christ. Most people who say they are in God’s grace and therefore have been saved by Grace of God are still living the same life and the Sinful nature life being under the sting of sins which are polluting them and most of them have developed Spiritual cancer and never getting there.
The putting away of Sins by Jesus Christ is not a theory word that should be spoken or it’s not an historical word in the event that happened 2000 years ago. The putting away of sins by Jesus Christ on the cross must be experimental and experiential. Grace is a life changing Spiritual life that must be experienced. It’s like washing your clothes in a basin with any of the detergents and using the soap to make the clothes clean. The way you wash your clothes from dirt is that how the life should be, taking away sins from your life must be experimental it should be eradicated and that is what Jesus Christ came to do and this is accomplished by the power of the Holy Spirit in regeneration and renewal. I think it makes sense if you took your clothes and you washed them using water, Soap and any detergent for washing away dirt. Many Christians do not go for utter eradication of sin from their lives but they go for white washing of sins and that only reveals someone who does not want wash his clothes from dirt by dry washing to make them clean and of which that is covering dirt in the clothes but they have not been removed and the fact will remain that you did not wash your clothes but dried washed them. Therefore regeneration involves of washing away the sins in experienced way and experimental, the people who stare at will see that you are very clean and give a witness. Jesus Christ came to eradicate sins from people’s lives not covering sins in people’s lives. Those who are still living a sinful nature life and are called Christians they are deceiving themselves because it’s a wastage of time and you are only piling up dirt and the end will be for you in ironing the clothe it will be torn then you shall remain naked. It will be bad for such a Christian who wants to white wash sin rather than utter eradication of sin.
I thank the Holy Spirit today for this message about Regeneration and renewal, I will not talk much about Grace because it’s a whole Subject independently but By Grace of God we find we regenerated and renewed in the Spirit by the Holy Spirit through Christ Jesus. Therefore I will define Regeneration that Christians may understand the WORD Regeneration in godly nature it’s not about talking about it but walking in it.
Regeneration is the spiritual transformation in a person, brought about by the power of the Holy Spirit that brings the individual from being spiritually dead to become a spiritually alive human being.
It is the act done by God in the power of the Holy Spirit through Christ Jesus Our Lord and savior and therefore God expects each Christian who has accepted Jesus Christ as the savior and the Lord of his or her to be conformed into a certain image that is divinely in nature by the power of God in other words God wants us to experience his power through Holy Spirit regeneration and renewal after we have received Jesus Christ through his Grace, this will mean change of the heart and inner transformation and the deliverance from the power of sin . The reason why Jesus Christ went to the cross was to kill and eradicate sin from our human nature which had become an obstacle to freedom of Life in Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ did not come excuse a sinner but to deliver a sinner from the power of sin. Forgiveness is not allowance to continue sinning rather forgiveness demands to total abandonment of sin or an end to sin.
Therefore Mercy is not about ignoring deliberate sinners. Mercy says I will forego consequences with the prospect that you no longer act as deserving of them. So the Grace of God helps us to take away our inability of human nature to fulfill the requirement as they demanded. The grace gives us the ability to do repentance, keep righteousness unto holiness. And Holiness is perpetual righteousness, if its repentance then it should be perpetual as well as righteous acts done by the Christians.
Many Christians have received the mercy of God and his grace to receive salvation through Christ and to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit. However the behavior of these Christians living in this modern era only reveal that Jesus Christ died in vain, they do not show regeneration of the Holy Spirit in their lives and this has kept many outside wondering whether Born Agains today are really saved. Surprisingly the Christians who profess to say they are saved are not regenerated by the Holy Spirit because their human nature and sinful nature reveals so. They have undermined the mercy of God continue in the lives of their former behavior which deserves all the consequences of sin punishment.
According to the word regeneration and its meaning, it’s a Spiritual transformation from human nature to godly nature that you may conform to the image of the son. After the fall of man we all became corrupted in human nature and by human nature we are sinners and were alienated from the Kingdom of God and of Christ hence we were strangers in the house of God. By that Gods mercy and by his Grace we have been brought to the great mystery of Christ’s Salvation that we may obtain forgiveness and be regenerated in the Spirit, in the heart, in the mind, in the behavior, in the soul, character and personality and the attitude by the power of the Holy Spirit to conform into the image of the first born.
This subjective change worked in one’s soul by the grace of God is variously designated in Scripture as a new birth, a resurrection, a new life, a new creature, a renewing of the mind, a dying to sin and living to righteousness, a translation from darkness to light.
Regeneration is the “birth” by which this work of new creation is begun, as sanctification is the “growth” whereby it continues (1 Pet. 2:2; 2 Pet. 3:18). Regeneration in Christ changes the disposition from lawless, Godless self-seeking (Rom. 3:9-18; 8:7) which dominates man in Adam into one of trust and love, of repentance for past rebelliousness and unbelief, and loving compliance with God’s law henceforth. It enlightens the blinded mind to discern spiritual realities (1 Cor. 2:14-15; 2 Cor. 4:6; Col. 3:10), and liberates and energizes the enslaved will for free obedience to God (Rom. 6:14, 17-22; Phil. 2:13).
The Must of Regeneration It was not to a social outcast, criminal or drunkard, but to a religious, law-abiding man that Christ addressed the command, “Ye must be born again.” Some persons who possess a certain moral goodness and are therefore self-righteous, do not realize any need of regeneration. They feel that only drunkard, thieves, murderers, harlots, dope addicts, and the like need to be born again. A woman, whose parents were missionaries to India, told me that she did not need to be born again because she was born right the first time and simply needed to continue being good. This is far from the truth. The necessity of regeneration for all men grew out of the depravity of man’s nature. The natural man is “dead in trespasses and sins . . . alienated from the life of God” (Ephesians 2:1; 4:18) because his iniquities have separated him from God (Isaiah 59:2). The need for being regenerated is universal. “There is none righteous, no, not one . . . For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:10, 23). “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” (Genesis 6:5). “The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one” (Psalm 14:2, 3). “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9). The best thing God can do for man is to bring him to knowledge of his sin so that he will realize his need of being regenerated. Our Lord left no doubt as to the indispensable necessity of the new birth as a pre-requisite to entrance into the Kingdom of God.
Heaven may be reached without education, wealth or worldly acclaim, but it will not be inhabited by those who have not been regenerated. It has been said that George Whitfield preached more than three hundred times using John 3:3-7 as his text. When asked why he preached so frequently from these verses, he replied solemnly, “Because ye must be born again.” This is a Divine imperative. “That which is born of the flesh is flesh” (John 3:6), and “they that are in the flesh cannot please God” (Romans 8:8), because in the flesh “dwelleth no good thing” (Romans 7:18). Man’s sinfulness and God’s holiness are opposed to each other so that regeneration is an absolute necessity. Inasmuch as our Lord said, “Ye must be born again,” you better believe it!
The Means of Regeneration Regeneration is the implantation of a new life. The theory known as Spontaneous Generation, that is that life can spring into being of itself is no longer believed by modern day scientists. The evolutionary theory holds that life must come from pre-existing life, but it is at a loss to know where life begins. The basic error of false systems of theology, philosophy and science is the failure to accept the most sublime and comprehensive statement in human language which introduces us to the greatest revelation of truth ever given to mankind. The opening statement in the Bible says, “In the beginning God created. . .” (Genesis 1:1). Here we learn that God is the Source and Cause of all things. Life begins with God. Neither the universe nor anything in it is self-originated. God stands at the commencement of all life. God is life. Man in his original state was the perfect work of God. But man has fallen. His willful sin brought death, both physical and spiritual, so that in his fallen, sinful state he is “alienated from the life of God” (Ephesians 4:18). God is the Source of the new life which is communicated to the believing sinner. Man is unable to impart Divine life, therefore he has no part in the New Birth. All Christian parents would bestow eternal life on their offspring if they could, but they cannot. A man is born again. “not of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (John 1:13). Since only God possesses creative power, He alone can impart life where there is no life. But by what means does God produce the miracle of the New Birth? Our Lord said to Nicodemus, “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” (John 3:5). We have already stated that it is erroneous to assume that one is born again at the time of his being baptized with water. The “water” in this verse does not refer to baptism. But what did our Lord mean by being “born of water”? Whenever we come to a verse in the Bible, such as this one, about which there is disagreement and difference of interpretation, we must be patient and prayerful in our pursuit of other Bible passages which shed light on the subject under discussion. There are occasions in the Scripture where the word “water” is used symbolically, and then the symbolism is not always the same. The following passage teaches that water is sometimes a symbol of the Holy Spirit–“In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink. He that believeth on Me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. But this spake He of the Spirit . . . ” (John 7:37-39). It would appear that when water is used symbolically of the Holy Spirit, it is in connection with drinking purposes.
Water is also used in the Bible as an emblem of the Word of God, and the anointing of God and in such uses it is associated with cleansing or washing, not drinking. Baptism does not avail to cleanse the heart from defilement, but our Lord did say, “Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you” (John 15:3). Is Christ speaking of the water of the word in John 3:5? Let us turn to the Scriptures for the answer. In the second most important passage on the means of Regeneration, we find our answer. The Apostle Peter wrote, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, but the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever” (I Peter 1:23). Here Peter speaks of the use made of the Word of God in Regeneration. The Word of God is the means by which the Holy Spirit accomplishes the New Birth. Here Peter is saying the same as Jesus said in John 3:5.
This is understood more clearly when we realize that the Word of God is both living and life-producing. “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12). The living word came from the living God, and it has power to impart life to all who believe it. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17). And if you are wondering how the Word of God quickens faith, the answer is, By imparting knowledge. Knowledge precedes faith, because faith always has an object. The Word of God presents to us the fact of our sin and condemnation, that without Christ we are without a Saviour and with no hope. The Word of God shows us that the Son of God came into the world to bear the sinner’s judgment through His substitutionary death for the sinner (Matthew 20:28; Luke 19:10; I Corinthians 15:3, 4). The Word of God assures us that all one needs in order to pass from death to life is to believe the facts and receive the Saviour. Our Lord Himself said, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation, but is passed from death unto life” (John 5:24). So you see that without the Word of God a man cannot be regenerated, or born again. This is why people are not being born again in churches where the Word of God is not preached and taught.
The Holy Scriptures are both living and life-producing. The Apostle James attributes the sovereign work of God in regeneration to the living Word of God. He writes, “Of His own will begat He us with the Word of truth” (James 1:18). Our Lord said, “The words that I speak unto you . . . they are life” (John 6:63). “Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you” (John 15:3). He prayed to the Father, “Sanctify them through Thy truth; Thy word is truth” (John 17:17). The Psalmist wrote, “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed thereto according the Thy Word” (Psalm 119:9). These passages of Scripture all lend support to the fact that God’s Word is the Divine means used in the regeneration of sinners, and that the “water” in John 3:5 is used as a symbol of the Word of God. In further support of the water-Word interpretation of John 3:5, the Apostle Paul wrote how Christ sanctifies and cleanses His church “with the washing of water by the word” (Ephesians 5:26). God the Father is the Author of regeneration and His Word the means. However, our Lord said to Nicodemus, “Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God” (John 3:5). The Holy Spirit is the active Agent in regeneration. Just as there must be the human agent in a human birth, so there must be the Divine Agent in the new birth from above. When we came into the world by means of our physical birth, we were born of corruptible (or perishable, dying) seed, because two human parents can beget a child only in their own likeness. Through natural birth they pass on to their offspring their own nature and likeness. “That which is born of the flesh is flesh” (John 3:6).
But on the other hand, “that which is born of the Spirit is spirit” (John 3:6). When we are born again, the Holy Spirit begets new life, Divine life, so that we are said to become “partakers of the divine nature” (II Peter 1:4). The New Birth is brought to pass through “incorruptible seed, by the Word of God, which liveth and abideth forever” (I Peter 1:23), but the Holy Spirit is the Agent who accomplishes the miracle of regeneration.
The Holy Spirit was active in the generation of the physical universe. We read, “And the earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters” (Genesis 1:2). The Holy Spirit was the active Agent in the creation of man. “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul” (Genesis 2:7). “The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life” (Job 33:4).
The Holy Spirit was the active Agent in the conception and birth of Jesus Christ. “. . . Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife; for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost” (Matthew 1:20). “And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary; for thou hast found favor with God . . . The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee; therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God” (Luke 1:30, 35).
From the above passages it is clear that the act of imparting life has been the Holy Spirit’s work from the beginning. Regeneration is in a sense a repetition of that which took place in the first man, Adam; however, the processes are different. Adam, in his original state, was created with the gift of life; this was the implantation of life through the creative process. Today God is implanting spiritual life to believing sinners through the redemptive process. In both instances the Holy Spirit is the Agent.
To be “born of water and of the Spirit” is to be regenerated by means of the Word of God and by the active Agency of the Spirit of God. It is not by the Word of God alone that a man is regenerated, but by the Word and the Holy Spirit, “by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost” (Titus 3:5).
The Mystery of Regeneration That there is something incomprehensible about Regeneration no one can deny. While God did tell us some things about the New Birth, the Scriptures are clear also that as far as man is concerned, there are certain limitations in understanding fully this inexplicable phenomenon. The scholarly Nicodemus, to whom our Lord expounded the New Birth, could not fully understand it. “Nicodemus answered and said unto Him, How can these things be?” (John 3:9).
Our Lord admitted that to the natural mind there is mystery attached to this mighty subject. He said, “The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth; so is every one that is born of the Spirit” (John 3:8). The best trained meteorologists with the latest scientific radar equipment will admit a certain enigma in the movement of the winds. With their finest instruments and technological knowledge they cannot always perceive the current of the air masses. And even when man does know the directions of the wind, he is unable to regulate or control its power. The wind is an invisible and mysterious force; yet its effects are plainly evident. Its unseen power lies beyond the reach of our vision and understanding The wind is sovereign in its movements and silent as to its mystery. It blows where it pleases, and it is invisible, inscrutable, irresistible and inexplicable. The analogy of the movements of the wind to the Spirit’s operation in Regeneration is clear.
In connection with the mystery of the New Birth, there is a verse of Scripture which speaks of the mystery of another Birth. The Apostle Paul wrote, “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh . . .” (I Timothy 3:16). This verse is speaking of the Incarnation of God the eternal Son, His miraculous conception in the virgin’s womb. What a theme! He existed in spirit form eternally before the world was, and still He was born an infant babe, of a woman, having no human father. “God was manifest in the flesh.” What man has understood or explained it? Paul says it is a “mystery,” inscrutable and inexplicable. Christ’s coming into the world was a supernatural event, both the fact and the manner of His coming being a mystery to man. That He came to earth none can deny, but any biological explanation remains a mystery. It is “without controversy,” that is, beyond all question and doubt.
Principles of regeneration
- One may engage in all the outward duties of religion, and yet not be born again. They may advance to a great deal of strictness in their own way of religion, and yet be strangers to the new birth.
- Sharp soul-exercises and pangs of conscience of themselves do not bring about the new birth.
- Regeneration is a real thorough change, whereby one is made a new creature (2 Cor. 5:17). The Lord God makes the creature a new creature, “as the goldsmith melts down the vessel of dishonor, and makes it a vessel of honor.”
- Regeneration is a change of qualities or dispositions. Vicious qualities are removed, and contrary dispositions are replaced.
- Regeneration is a supernatural change. To be born again is to be born of the Spirit (John 3:5).
- It is a change into the likeness of God. “We, beholding, as in a glass, the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image” (2 Cor. 3:18).
- It is a universal change; “all things become new” (2 Cor. 5:17).
In conclusion each Christian who has been born of God then he must be transformed in the heart, in the spirit, in the character, in the behavior, in the mind and thought, attitude if the Holy Spirit in dwelling in that Christian. Jesus Christ is looking for Christian life changing not Christian life talking but no change in the Christian. You could have spent 100 years in salvation as long as you have not conformed into the image of Son that he wants then you are wasting your time. The Kingdom of God is not a matter of talking but it is power and the demonstration of the Holy Spirit.
When a person claims to be a Christian or born again and has not been transformed or changed in the above traits and principles of transformation is liar and the truth is not in that Christian. It’s like hanging mangoes on a popular mango tree to show that it bears fruits yet in reality it’s not fruitful. Many Christians are behaving that kind of life, they want call themselves born again but the fruits are not of born again Christians. It’s better not have been be born again than bringing up big God’s judgment by trampling on the blood of Jesus Christ and insult the Spirit of Grace.
For many boast of being born again in Christ Jesus but they do not reflect the works of the Christians, they are living like the people who have not received Jesus Christ in their lives and therefore God’s mane is being blasphemed by the unbelievers because of who are called we are born again, I here that they say once born again you shall always be born again and this is saying is illusional and delusional to the so called Christians and it’s a here say by the false preachers and teachers who have perverted the great Grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Repent now and be transformed by the Holy Spirit step by step you will produce the fruits of the Holy Spirit. Those who have been transformed produce fruits of the Spirit not of the flesh. Those who produce fruits of the flesh operate in the realm of the sinful nature and most their fruits are these;
Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. Galatians 5; 19-21 and such Christians have not been regenerated by the power of the Holy Spirit, be careful in calling yourself a Christian minus examining your Christian life and the deeds that you produce.
I Asher Namanya the Bondservant of God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ by the guidance of the Holy Spirit and His insight in the word of God Almighty have done my part to deliver what has been entrusted with me to you brethren so it will be upon you to read and organize yourself for the new life or you read and ignore.
I pray the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ help you to be a doer of the word.
Peace of God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. And the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ be praised forever and ever Amen.
