How Do You Know If You Are Born Again?

If I were to take a poll among the Christian population.

I know I would get many variations as to how to become born again.

Now I believe there has to be only one way to become born again.

What is it?

You are only born once. Was your mama pregnant for you twice? No. Only losers need to be born again and it is not a real birth. Just a figure of speach. Going to jail? Messed up on drugs? Beat your wife? Well just get yourself born again and you good!!! Yeah right. Religion is for fools and weaklings.

Oh Lord God if they are telling a lie here
Please rebuke them and punish them for it so as to maybe save their soul. Oh Lord God I beseech thee to give me all the blessings that you have given to this soul and their family that they do not use to bless and honor your name with. And I shall do so with them.
Amen

There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. 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. 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? 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. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?(John 3:1-9)

Here we see Nicodemus asking Jesus what it means to be born again. He didn't understand being born again because there is only one natural birth. So, Jesus explains to him that being born again is not a natural birth (that only happens once) its a spiritual birth. He goes on the explain that people who are born of the spirit can be likened to the wind. You can feel the wind blow (you can feel the spirit, joy, goose bumps/chills), you can see the effects of the wind blowing (you can see the effects of the spirit such as a true life change) and you can hear the wind blow (when someone is born in the spirit there will be a sound). After this Jesus went on to teach his disciples everything they needed to know to make it to heaven. Peter on the day of Pentecost preached this exact message...

Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.(Acts 2:36-39)
Here we see Peter preaching to the people, they asked him what they must do and he told them just what Jesus commanded. Repent, and be baptized for remission of sins (born of water) ad they would receive the Holy Ghost (born of spirit).

Now days you hear people talking about it ring the end of days and that all this was only for the day of pentecost and men f that time but that isn't so..
But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:(Acts 2:16, 17)
This is proof that His Spirit is still being poured out today.

Now you can take it or leave it. It's all in black and white and the scripture is not contradictory. I've showed scripture and broke it down. I pray that ur eyes be opened to the truth. That Gid would unblinded your minds in Jesus name.

THE " VERSE QUOTING " CHRISTIANS

These Christians are the kind you try to avoid.

If they go to swat a fly...they quote a verse.

I love the verses of Truth

but if you cannot talk to me with your own words

from your own heart...

I DO NOT HAVE NO USE FOR YOU.

The verse quoters are like the devil was to Jesus.

to justify their actions and to condemn yours.

AND MORE TIMES THAN NOT...THEY THEMSELVES DO NOT

OBEY EVEN THE VERSES THEY QUOTE TO YOU.

I do not mind the verses of the bible

I mind the people that quote them.

They use them to hide themselves from you.

They use them to hide themselves in the evil they

do and to shine the Light on the evil you do.

The Scriptures of Truth are Holy.

To be used in the Name of The Lord.

It makes me sad to see the Scriptures of Truth

used and polluted with the silliness and stupidity

that I see being done to them now days.

I'm not sure I understand your prayer here? Is this not an honor to God? Not only did I give you scripture to answer your question. I explained it so there would be no confusion.

God gave us scripture as a guide on how to live. I certainly do not quote a scripture for every instance such as swatting flies, but it is plain here that scripture is the only thing that will teach u to be born again. It's not by works lest any man should boast. But I do take this scriptures and hide them in my heart and I'm trying my best to have a wonderful relationship with God and know him more than I've ever known him. I am blessed that God found me worthy to die on a cross for my sins, I am blessed that God gave me knowledge of te scriptures, I am blessed beyond measure to know truth, and God can bless you too but my blessings belong to me!

How did I do evil? And how will the Lord rebuke me for speaking His truth and Word? I'm not here to fight. I come with peace. His people will be known by their fruit. God is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith.

You can't curse what God has blessed. Bitter and sweet water do not flow out the same fountain. There is a reason God's word is called the Good News

You do not know God.

You do not know Jesus.

You are not born again.

And you are already cursed.
