because I love everyone!
It is very simple to become Born Again.
It is accomplished through belief and prayer.
There are several things you must first believe.
Then you must pray about those beliefs.
It is that simple.
The hard part is believing, and once you believe you pray.
Once you pray Jesus will handle the rest.
Jesus will make you become Born Again.
As you pray Jesus will fill you with His Mind and His Holy Spirit.
Jesus will change you and give you a repentant heart and a repentant mind.
Jesus will seal you FOREVER.
Jesus will save you FOREVER.
Jesus will change you into a New Creature, or a new being, SPIRITUALLY.
That is what it means to be Born Again!
And, once you are Born Again you will learn to KNOW that Jesus Christ is the Lord God Almighty.
Jesus will move you from just believing He is God to KNOWING that He is God.
Praying to Jesus opens up doors of KNOWLEDGE!
Jesus opens up those doors when you pray to HIM!
Let’s cover what you need to believe, first.
Believing is not the same as knowing!
You must first accept the fact that you are a sinner.
You must accept that you must repent of your sins.
You must believe that Jesus is God.
You must believe that Jesus is the Son of God.
You must believe that Jesus is the Christ.
You must believe that Jesus was sinless, perfect, and never made a mistake.
You must believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins on the cross.
You must believe that Jesus arose from the dead.
You must believe that when you pray that Jesus will fill you with His Mind and His Holy Spirit.
As I said above, as you pray Jesus will take care of everything for you.
All you have to do is believe those things above and then pray.
Now let’s cover the praying part.
Praying is simply talking to Jesus.
You can also talk to Jesus by just using your mind.
Praying is believing that Jesus is hearing you.
Praying is believing that Jesus will respond to you as you communicate with Him.
Jesus always responds, and He responds in many different ways.
Praying is having a personal relationship with Jesus.
Here is a prayer that you can pray to Jesus to become Born Again.
You don’t have to pray this exact prayer.
You can use your own words.
This is just an example, but you are welcome to use my prayer.
When you pray to Jesus to become Born Again make certain you pray with all your mind, all your heart, and with all your strength and power!
Dear Lord Jesus!
I come to you now not knowing exactly what I am doing.
I come to you asking you to make me Born Again.
I come to you asking you to make me a new creature.
I believe that I am a sinner in need of your saving grace.
Please give me a repentant heart.
I believe you have never sinned, and that you have never done anything wrong.
I believe you are the Lord God Almighty.
I believe you are the Son of God.
I believe you are the Christ.
I believe you died on a cross for my sins.
I believe you arose from the dead.
I believe that you are about to save me from myself, my sins, and eternal death.
Lord Jesus please save me, and let your shed blood cover my sins and iniquities.
Lord Jesus, please forgive me for my sins.
Lord Jesus, please make me a new creature.
And, Lord Jesus, please fill me with your Mind and your Holy Spirit.
Thank you Lord Jesus!
Now if you prayed that prayer believing in your heart, then Jesus just saved you!
Jesus just made you a new creature, or a brand new being, SPIRITUALLY!
Jesus just forgave you for your sins!
Jesus just filled you with His Mind and His Holy Spirit!
You are a new creature, or a brand new being, SPIRITUALLY!
You now have Jesus Christ living inside of you!
Now you have the God of the universe living inside of you!
All things have become new with YOU!
I am rejoicing with you NOW, because you decided to become Born Again!
YOU JUST TRUSTED JESUS, AND THAT IS AN AWESOME THING!
JESUS LOOKS FOR PEOPLE TO TRUST IN HIM!
As you walk with Jesus you will begin to learn to hear Jesus.
He has said my name, and I heard Him with my ears, and He has a still small voice.
However, Jesus usually communicates in the spirit, as He does with me all the time.
Jesus usually communicates through “KNOWING“.
Knowing is a more direct form of communication than hearing.
Knowing is much faster than hearing.
Knowing can take less time than a micro-second.
Hearing by comparison takes much longer for us to assimilate.
God bless you, and I pray your walk with Jesus grows and blossoms!
I have included some scriptures on being saved and Born Again.
As a new creature you should read and study the Holy Bible every single day.
Jesus will talk to you through His scriptures, as well as in your heart and mind.
One very important thing you should know, and obey, and do is repentance.
Repentance is a five-fold process which you should do.
You should first accept you are a sinner.
Then you should WANT to turn from sin.
And then, ultimately, you should turn from sin.
Here are the five stages for repentance:
- Accepting that you are a sinner.
- Hating your sins and your sinful behavior.
- Desiring to stop sinning.
- Attempting to stop sinning.
- Stopping sinning completely.
Stages 1-3 are required to become Born Again.
Stages 4-5 come after you are Born Again.
Many people try to accomplish stages 4-5 without Jesus, but truly, it is nearly impossible without Jesus!
If you are coming to Jesus to be saved you should hate sin and hate sinning, and you should desire to stop sinning.
Wanting to turn from sin is needed for Salvation, and then Jesus will change you to stop sinning, and if a certain sin keeps popping up, come to Jesus for forgiveness and deliverance.
Jesus delivers some people from sins immediately, but most people are not completely delivered from some of their sins for many years, and some people are only delivered from some of their sins when they die.
Repentance alone cannot save you.
Only Jesus can save you, and only Jesus can change you so you don’t sin, and even then your flesh will continue to want to sin!
Many people have stopped sinning some of their sins and yet they still went to hell, because they did not trust in Jesus to make them Born Again.
Only Jesus can save you, and Jesus will give you a repentant heart, but you must put forth the effort to not sin!
You must ask Jesus to save you from yourself.
If you already asked Jesus to save you before you read this part about repentance, that is perfectly OK, because Jesus gave you a repentant heart when He made you Born Again!
Once you are Born Again you will automatically begin to hate sin, and you will automatically start trying to not sin.
Jesus makes this possible by changing your mind and your heart so that you will learn to not sin, and in many cases we learn to sin less and less if certain sins keep bothering us.
When you are Born Again the more sins bother you the less you do them!
Even so, your flesh was NOT changed, and it will fight you until you die!
Your flesh will DEMAND that you sin, so you must run to Jesus in prayer and ask Him for strength, and the will, and the desire to not sin.
As I said earlier, you must put forth the effort to NOT sin!
Also, Jesus desires that we should be baptized by being completely submerged into water.
You should get baptized with your whole body being submerged into water.
You should be baptized in the name of Jesus.
The “NAME” of the Father, and the “NAME” of the Son, and the “NAME” of the Holy Spirit is “JESUS”!
I LOVE TO SAY THIS STATEMENT TO PEOPLE:
The Lord Yeshua Jesus Christ is The Lord God Almighty Jehovah Yahweh!
And, finally, find some Christians to share your life in Jesus.
We are commanded by Jesus to fellowship with other Christian brothers and sisters.
We absolutely need to fellowship with other Born Again Christians!
BORN AGAIN SCRIPTURES
John 3:3-7 KJV
3 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.
4 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?
5 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.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
Ezekiel 36:22-29 KJV
22 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name’s sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.
23 And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.
24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
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.
27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
29 I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.
1 John 5:1-13 KJV
1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.
7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.
10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
Romans 10:8-15 KJV
8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
1 Peter 1:1-25 KJV
1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,
2 Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
10 Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:
15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:
18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.
22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:
25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
2 Corinthians 5:17-19 KJV
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
Romans 6:22-23 KJV
22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Ephesians 2:1-9 KJV
1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Galatians 3:26 KJV
26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
Titus 3:3-7 KJV
3 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,
5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
John 3:14-21 KJV
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
1 Corinthians 2:9-16 KJV
9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
John 1:10-13 KJV
10 He (JESUS) was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
John 6:32-69 KJV
32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.
33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.
34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.
35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.
37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
41 The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.
42 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?
43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.
46 Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.
47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
48 I am that bread of life.
49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
50 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
52 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.
54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.
60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?
61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?
62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.
65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.
69 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.
Romans 8:5-11 KJV
5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
