How To Be Born Again Spiritually

In starting a Natural fire, you need some kind of spark or match. In a similiar manner, to start a Spiritual Fire or REVIVAL, you need a Supernatural Spark. This will come with some understanding of the Heavenly World.


We all had physical parents and were born into this material world. But, that is not all that there is to Life! We need to be Born Again or rebirthed into the Spiritual World. This is what Jesus said: "Truly, Truly, I say to you: EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN AGAIN, HE CANNOT SEE (enter) THE KINGDOM OF GOD!" (John 3:3). And, "Truly, Truly, I say to you: Except a man be born of the water (Naturally) and of the Spirit (Supernaturally), he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. For that which is born of the flesh is flesh; And that which is born of the Spirit is spirit! Marvel not that I say to you--YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN!" (John 3:5-7)


In the beginning, God created Man as an immortal, supernatural being, and, in a manner, something like God Himself (Genesis 1:26-27). But, as the Woman said: "The Serpant (the Devil) beguiled (tricked) me, and I did eat!" (Genesis 3:13). Consequently, Man died spiritually and lost his immortality, becoming a mere Natural, mortal human. For it is written: "For since by a man (Adam) came death (mortallity)...For as in Adam all (now) die..." (I Corinthians 15:21-22). Thus, through Adam, the Power of Sin has a hold on Man, dragging him down to degredation and destruction. Is there no cure or remedy?


Unfortunately, too many people ignore their spiritual sickness. (They seem to think that they will just get better--not realizing that the poison of Sin will continue to tear them down.) Still others try to cover up their destructive disease--thus many religions have been formed in the world, to make people look good. However, it says: "But, we are ALL as an unclean thing; All our righteousness is as filthy rags!" (Isaiah 64:6). Or, even worse: "There is a Way (religion) that seems right to a man, but the end (reults) thereof are the way to death!" (Proverbs 16:25) Consequently, the Holy Scriptures warn us that TODAY is the Day of Salvation (deliverance--cure)! (II Corinthians 6:2)


God demands justice and payment for our Sins! So, someone has to make the payment. This is what Jesus did on the Cross. For, HE said: "I am the Way, the Truth, and the (eternal) Life! No man can come to the Father, but by ME!" (John 14:6) And, of HIM, it is written: "But God commends (demonstrates) HIS Love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died (on the Cross) for us (paying our sins)... For...we were reconcilled (restored--healed) to God by the death of HIS Son..." (Romans 5:8, 10). For the Holy Scriptures teach us: "But, as many as receive HIM (Christ), to them gives HE power to become the Sons-of-God (immortals); Even to them who Believe on HIS Name!" (John 1:12)


Well, logically, you might assume that you can just go to church. But, unfortunately, all too many churches don't preach Salvation or Rebirth. (And, many who do teach it, don't practice it.) However, there are some good Evangelist out there who hold meetings that you can get born again at. And, there are some Evangelical Churches that you can attend and find Salvation. Just be sure that you make an agreement or covenant in prayer with God, there, to accept the sacrifice of Christ on the Cross to pay for your sins. However, that is just procrastinating! Why not do it now? Today is the Day of Salvation! Don't wait.


All right, let me spare you all of the theology. For, it is basicly real simple. Just repeat the following Covenant Prayer out loud (so God will know that you agree to it, personally):

Father God, I confess to YOU that I am a sinner and have done wrongs in YOUR SIGHT.

But, I plead with YOU to forgive me of my sins, because of YOUR Son, Jesus, who died on the Cross, shedding HIS Blood to pay for my sins--as my death by proxy.

I now renouce the Devil, his followers, and all of their wicked ways and command them, in Jesus' Name, to be gone from my life!

Instead, Heavenly Father, send YOUR precious Holy Ghost into my heart and life--to lead me and guide me in following the Ways that are pleasing to YOU.

Yes, that is all there is to it! If you have said this Covenant Prayer, then you are now reborn. Or as some say, saved.

No, this is not the end, it is just a beginning. You now have the match, the spark to get the REVIVAL Fire going. But, now you need the other parts used in building a good fire. So, turn to the next lesson, and take you next step.

Yes, sometimes people like to know more about things, before they get too involved. So, if you are one of those thinkers, and are more studious, then you will probably want to read other and more detailed articles on Regeneration or Rebirth.

Moreover, as it is one of the 3 Main Goals of ZDK to promote the message of Salvation as the first part of the Full Gospel, we have several Web Pages on on being born again. Theologically, this is called Regeneration, though it is more commonly refered to as getting saved or being born again. So, if this Article does not appeal to you, then try out the other ones. Perhaps you will find one that is just right for you? You can look them up in Our Revival Chapel, or use the handy link, below:
