The Absolute Necessity Of The New Birth -John 3:1-8


“There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:  The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Nicodemus saith unto him, how can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, 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. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Verse 7"Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye; must be born again. 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.”

The Absolute Necessity Of The New Birth -John 3:1-8


The statement and the teaching of he Lord, according to Saints John. The man that came to the Lord Jesus Christ,  Nicodemus , a ruler of the Jews. 

He was a religious man [John3:1] "THERE was a man who f the Pharisees named Nicodemus, ruler of the Jews" verse 2 "The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him". The word Rabbi - Means the master, the teacher, the one that propound the mind of the people. 

For the Lord Jesus knows the heart of all men. He knew what is in the mind of this man called " Nicodemus", after all the expression of his faith, a teacher with authority, with power of understanding, a teacher that has the key that leads us to heaven. EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN AGAIN, HE CAN NOT SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD!

Being born again, born second time, born anew. How can a man be born again? John 3:5 says " Jesus answered, 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". He repeated that because, there is no shadow of doubt. And Jesus began and say, for there is a NATURAL BORN of the Spirit (Spiritual born). What is born of the Spirit is Spirit.

Being born again is for everyone (Adult, children, young, old) everyone that is desirous of coming to the Lord. The Spirit is likening to the WIND - We can only feel the wind and that is the operation of the Spirit of God. In John 3:8"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".

THE ABSOLUTE NECESSITY OF THE NEW BIRTH! The very corner stone of fellowship with God.

1.                   The Unexpected Confusion Of Nicodemus - John 3:1,2; John 12:42,43; Psalms 51:5-13; Isaiah 53:11; Jeremiah 31:31-33; Ezekiel 11:17-20; Ezekiel 36:25. 

The very sure and perfect truth that leads a man from earth to heaven. THE UNEXPECTED CONFUSION. In John 12:43 "For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God". Many people like the praise of men and so, they become timidly and fearfully in whatever people say or think about them. Jesus Christ expect us to believe and trust in Him, NO TURNING BACK. 

There are people in the world that will make you to be ashamed of Jesus Christ Calling you different names. When you decided to follow Jesus Christ, NO TURNING BACK. The Lord love the people that come to Him with compassion. Except a man be born again, he can not see the Kingdom of God!

The sin is not in the heart, feet, flesh, tongue (the organ of the body) ears and your head. In the book if Psalms 51:5 "Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me". The sin is in the nature ,in the heart and the spirit of man . In [Psalms 52:6] "Behold, thou desirest truth in the word parts; and in the hidden part thou judgest". 

The part that needs to be born again is the hidden part. When you are born again your (Though, character, conduct, action,thinking) change from the inside, in verse 7 " Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow". 

Talking about washing from the inside, your heart and soul. Being born again [Psalms 51:10] "Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me". 

CREATE IN ME A CLEAN HEART. Your imagination must be clean. It is the thought in verse 11"Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me". The conversion of sinners (Being born again) confessing with whole heart with something new. 

The oneness that get into the flesh is the SPIRIT of CONVERSION! What is meant to be born of the Spirit [Isaiah 53:11] " He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities". Talking about Jesus Christ, our Redeemer, the one that has the power to change us and cleanse us to be sanctified. Justification by Faith! A the guilt, the condemnation will be taken away. 

Being free from the heart (By his knowledge, shall thy righteous servants judge by many). Your inward part, and your inward man will be renew. Being born if the flesh and live in society. Being born of the flesh is flesh [Jeremiah 31:31-33] - Your inward part,and your inward man will be renewed. The Almighty God himself speaking, talking about Washing us from the inside. 

It is an inner cleansing, in verse 26 "A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of
flesh". When God does that, what a Mighty change that comes upon us.

2. A Universal Conversion Through The New Birth - John 3:3; Hebrews 2:1; Matthew 5:8; 1Peter 1:22,23; 1John 2:3; 2Corinthians 5:17; Ephesians 5:26

"Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."

Assuredly, without any command from angel, except from God EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN AGAIN, HE CAN NOT SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD. In [Matthew 5:20] " For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. Here is Jesus talking the word EXCEPT.

In John 5:8 "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God". Except there is a change, there is transformation of God inside, you can not see the kingdom of God. When Jesus said EXCEPT - It mean the inward heart must be cleanse, talking about the REPENTANCE! Once you repented, cleanse, your life become totally regenerate to the conversion.
The righteousness of the Pharisees can not get into the kingdom. The EXCEPT, is the inner mind that is renewed, transformed for the kingdom of God. We must have the new life and be born again, a new disposition, a new direction that give us destination to the Lord. That also gives us a new hope, a hope for heaven.

Being born again, your spirit and your inner mind,your heart is been transform " DOWEST RIGHTEOUSLY" In [2Corinthians 5:17] " Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things are passed away, behold, all things are become new". He is born again, born a new,born by the power of God(All things are become new). The spirit of God I'd transforming agent and power that washes us from the inside. In Galatians 5:17-21 - For that which is flesh is flesh. Those who are born of flesh are yet to be born again. He specialized in conversion, He wants us to be in Heaven with Him. Whosoever shall call upon the name of God, shall be saved( Being born again). The Confirmation evidence of being born again.

3. An Undeniable Confirmation With Newness Of Life - John 3:8; Acts 2:41; John 8:35-39; John 19:12,17.

He sees the winds - John 3:8
"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".
The winds is coming from His source (God) the creator. 

The winds; power of the spirit that blow away the dirty things " Everyone that is born of the spirit", the winds that blows can only be feel ,it has the same effect. So is everyone that is born of God. If we are born again of the Spirit:
* Our life will tally with the word of God.

* Our Character, conviction, conduct, commitment will agree with the word if God.
If we are born again, so is everyone that is born of the spirit ( Born if God). There is always a change in characters, a change in your disposition, in your conduct. also in your believe.

Being born again;

√ Your life will glorify God

√ Your life will influence other people around you. (So is everyone that is born of the Spirit).

The change, the transform, the judgement of eternal will be born again. (So is everyone that is born of the spirit). When you are born if the spirit, it gives you strength, the ability to continue in the word of God. It brings the newness character, the newness I'm conduct. 

(So is everyone that is born of the Spirit). EXCEPT A MAN IS BORN AGAIN. It is obligatory to everyone to make heaven. YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!
