John 3:3 Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God."
John 3:5 Jesus answered, "Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.
The new birth has been ridiculed by people on the right hand and the left yet it still stands as the requirement for entering the Kingdom of GOD.
Rejecting the new birth bought and paid for by Christ is nothing less than committing spiritual suicide.
This is the most dramatic experience available to mankind. Nothing approaches this encounter with God for it touches the earth and the heavens at the same time.
People on earth rejoice when a sinner comes home to GOD and the angels likewise rejoice - - Luke 15:10 “In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents."
It is too easy to underestimate the new birth and what occurs in the exercise of being born again. Spiritual death is surgically removed by the Spirit of GOD and New life is implanted from above.
There is an invisible stamp on the reborn that says, “Redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb.”
This stamp provides us with our entrance through the Pearly Gates. This new birth experience is glorious and is “Better felt than tell-eth”.
