Who Can Be Born Again And How Does It Happen?

Jesus replied to him: Truly, truly I tell you, unless a person is born from above [or born again] he cannot see the kingdom of God. (Jhn 3:3)

Mat 19:28 And Jesus said to them: Verily I say unto you, that you who have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit down upon his throne of glory, you also shall sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Tit 3:5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.

Jhn 3:3 Jesus answered and said to him: Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4 Nicodemus said to Him: How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born, can he? 5 Jesus answered: Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”

Jesus tells that a man must be born from above, and also from the water and the Spirit. “From above” refers to the Holy Spirit of God. ‘Water’ refers to the word of God. The Bible says according to Jesus: Rev 21.6 … He said to me, It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give freely to him who is thirsty from the spring of the water of life. 22:17 … And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.

Rom 8:9 You, however, are not of the flesh but under the control of the Spirit, since God’s Spirit lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to him.

1 Cor 3:16 Don’t you know that you are a temple of God, and that God’s Spirit lives in you? 1 Jhn 3:24 “The person who keeps his commandments abides in God, and God abides in him. This is how we can be sure that he remains in us: he has given us his Spirit. – These verses speak of both the Spirit of Christ and the Spirit of God. The question is, in fact, the Spirit of God, which Christ promised to send upon ascending into heaven; When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of Truth who comes from the Father, he will testify on my behalf. (Jhn 15:26)

Rom 8:11 And if the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, then the one who raised Christ from the dead will also make your mortal bodies alive by his Spirit who lives in you.

Act 5:32 We are his witnesses of these things; and so also is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him. Rom 8:9 You, however, are not of the flesh but under the control of the Spirit, since God’s Spirit lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to him.

2 Cor 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old things have passed away. Behold, all things have become new.

When receiving the Holy Ghost, the believer also receives the fruits of the Spirit! When the believer receives the Holy Spirit, he will also be born again. The final seal of the rebirth is received at the resurrection, because the chosen can renounce their faith and lose the Holy Spirit. Those who endure in faith until the end receive from the angels in their forehead, the seal of God, and will be guarded in the trials of the end-time tribulation.
