Why You Must be Born Again- Not What You Think

When God created you, He created you to live in two worlds. He created you in His image, and your body, spirit, and soul will look just like the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. My goal in this book is to show you how you are a spirit—a perfect spirit joined to the Lord—and how you already have all the things you need for life and godliness inside of you.

 

But let’s go back to the beginning, and I’ll explain to you a little bit more about this subject. God created man in His image, and they were one spirit. When man disobeyed God by eating the tree of knowledge of good and evil man gave authority to Satan and disconnected from the life-giving God. Man’s spirit became connected to the devil, then because of the law of “like begets like” and “reaping what you sow,” every person born after Adam was like his or her new father or master, Satan. Their spirits were dead to God and they were under Satan’s dominion, instead of the God under whose authority they were told to rule and subdue over the devil.

 

This is why a person needs to be born again. When you ask Jesus to be the Lord of your life and you receive the gift of salvation—for which He gave His life—in exchange for your lifetime of sins, you are born again into the family of God and taken out of the family of Satan. Your spirit again has the life of God in it and you are now connected again to God to Father. Let me show you a few Scriptures in reference to this.

 

1 Thessalonians 5:23 Now may the God of Peace Himself sanctity you COMPLETELY and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless.

 

Notice how it says body, spirit, and soul: three different parts. This is the Scripture that shows us most clearly that a human being has three parts. Remember, we are created in the image of God the Father (which is our mind, will, and emotions), Jesus (which is the physical being, the body), and the Holy Spirit (the soul).
