  1. I’m engaged to a beautiful Christian woman who is a successful superstar and celebrity and I’m an ordinary Jewish man who loves her as a person, not by age, race or religion. I was told that if I want to marry her I need to be reborn. What is the right answer?
    I already believe in God and Jesus what is next.

  2. Many “believers” have not taken “the step of faith”, (washing away the “old man” in full immersion baptism, as Jesus gave the example), therefore they have not been born again*** and given the Holy Spirit, so the vast majority of “believers” in the world are led by man and their fleshly impulses. (The Greek word for baptism is “baptidzo”, Hebrew is “MIKVEH” – literally means to “dip” or to “immerse”.)

    … Baptism is to be a step of faith (a choice) so that the “old spiritual person” chooses to die …leave their old spiritual self behind in the water so that the Holy Spirit can come upon them to provide a new spiritual life.

    Baptism … whether it be in a river, a pond, a lake … or even under a shower … let the “old man” be washed away! This step of faith follows a decision made (only when a person is mature enough to decide) that yes, God our Father and Lord Jesus have freed me, I want to be anointed with His Holy Spirit and be Father’s child and become as Christ Jesus is … a joint heir.

    Taking the step of faith and receiving the Holy Spirit and allowing Him to direct your life means .. John 16:33.. in Me (Christ Jesus, the Vine) you may have [perfect] peace {and} confidence. In the world you have tribulation {and} trials {and} distress {and} frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]

    As a branch of the Vine (John 15), rest in Him and moment by moment you receive all that is needed to bear His fruit …. The fruit being .. Gal 5:22 -24 But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness, gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law [that can bring a charge].

    As a branch of the Vine, rest in Him…1 John 4:17 In this [union and communion with Him] love is brought to completion {and} attains perfection with us, that we may have confidence for the day of judgment [with assurance and boldness to face Him], because as He is, so are we in this world. …. and as He was on earth, total trust and reliance on the Holy Spirit.

    1. Hi Brian! All the way from a train to Amsterdam in Holland I want to salute you in Christ. Wishing His Spirit is alive and strong in you. Satan has achieved that waterbaptism as a believer is many times omitted in text on the web on the spiritual birth. While everything else in there rings of the truth. But we know the Lord and also His jealousy for us, right. I have had to cut of several ‘limbs’ in the past 21 years as a new creation. I think you know what I mean. Wishing that I could talk to you in person, I say:God bless you dear brother. Let us perse vere in Him and surely meet eachother on the lovely new earth to come! Love in Him,
      Sebastian, Bas in Dutch.

  3. I USED to be one of those who give their lives to God on Sundays and take it back on Mondays. The only difference is that I take mine back a few hours after service on that Sunday. I would sin and know I am sinning. I know the way out of the temptation to commit that sin; it is looking at me right there. But I refuse to take that path and go ahead with the sin. I would be sinning and something inside of me would tell me that I know fully well that what I am doing isn’t right. Yet, I would go ahead with it. I would deceive myself and say this Sunday would be the last Sunday I would give my life to Christ over and over again. Yet, the next Sunday, I would be present for altar call. I would give myself a timeline and deceive myself with the idea that I have this amount of time to myself to do as I like, after which I would give my life to Christ finally. Still, nothing changed. After reading this podcast, I have decided I want this to be final. No more giving my life and taking it back again. I have surrendered fully to God. I am a born again for real. I am a new creature. Remember me in your prayers to be strong to resist temptation and grow daily in Jesus Christ. Thank You

    1. I understand your condition,you must know that born again is something that happened once in our life,you cannot be born again over and over let me explain a little what is born is simply believing in what Jesus Christ has done for you with all your heart, that’s what we call enternal is the life of God in you,his righteousness in you, his holiness in you,his nature in you,all this is a gift of God we received through Jesus Christ,you cannot merrit it by living a good life,so sin and death is no longer our problem, alleluia,we are no living a good life so that we Will go to heaven but we’re living a good life to appreciate him for what he has done for us.let me tell you the truth.our spirit man is saved,our soul is been save,then our body shall be saved, what so ever that is happening in soul and body doesn’t affect our spiri man,the biggest problem we have now is our mind, that is why Bible tells us to renew our mind with the word of God and that’s only way we can take care of our body.

  4. Becoming born again is to be born of God, or born from above. It’s solely God’s work to raise the spiritually dead sinner. We are passive in the new birth

      1. Acts 2:28.
        If you want to appreciate Jesus His suffering on your behalf, ask God to show you why He had to take your place, as He took mine too. I cry sometimes about what it took to save me. Man, was I dirty in His eyes and I didn’t even know it.
