Comments by Alex about being bornagain of an incorruptible seed EVEN BY THE WORD OF GOD that heavenly bloodline of Christ as we have borne the image of the earthly (our adamic nature ) we must also bear the image of the heavenly ( the nature of CHRIST ) THAT Promise seed a new innerman which is the H.G.( THIS IS REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY BY BEING BORNAGAIN WE REPLACE OUR OLD MAN by that new heart and new spirit the H.G. Not circumcision nor uncircumcision but a new creature which is the H.G. new to us but old to God as Jesus said they will bring forth things out of their hearts new and old.When Jesus told Nic. a jew he had to be bornagain inorder to enter the kingdom thats replacement theology we replace the old man with a newman.Our old man was in rank with satan.Paul was preaching replacement theology when he said its not i that live but but Christ that lives with in me,Saul was replaced but Paul. Just as the old covenant was replaced by the new covenant.If perfection came under the levitical Priesthood what was the need for another priesthood after the order of Melchizedek this was replacement theology. There was none righteous no not one thus the need for a new covenant by the blood of CHRIST.Jesus said outa of the hearts of MAN proceeds all manner of evil, thus the need for a new covenant. what Jesus did at calvary is gona make us all replacement,The H.G. is our replacement, our new innerman which is Christ in us the hope of glory,But Jesus does not do away with the Jewish ppl as all men will be washed in his blood, we will all be bornagain as Jeremiah saw all men in travail and birth pains in the end at the lake of fire which is his baptism of fire that all men will go thru. Who shall abide the day of his coming, Who shall stand when he appears for he shall be as a refiners fire and fullers soap,He is asking a question (WHO) impling WHO WILL ESCAPE THE LAKE OF FIRE,The wraft of the lamb, th blood WHO? implies nobody is gona escape the blood of the lamb.2 ND ADAM.

By the Grace of God, He saved my soul. Not of works I have done for it is His free gift to mankind. He who had no sin died for the sinner. Predestined from the beginning of time to be his, thank you Lord and Master.


Eddie Joyner's comment on 2015-03-14 04:45:40:

This scripture was dealing in regards to the new birth meaning-new birth in Christ and the word ' 'see ' ' in this text means ' 'understand ' '--for example Except a man be born again, he cannot understand the Kingdom Of God. the carnal mind cannot comprehend spiritual things only after one has submitted to the Lord 's will and ways through a true heart of repentance can they be washed with the anointing of the blood of Jesus Christ which will then give them the ability to see in the spirit to behold the Kingdom Of God.

I think that it actually states you must reborn as in reincarnation Jesus did not lie so I beleave there is proof all over the bible that speaks of reincarnation because with God all things are possible !!


Roy's comment on 2014-03-09 09:22:25:

Jesus is saying that if you have never been baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son nd of the Holy Ghost for the remission of sins you will never see the true Kingdom of heaven that simply means obey the gospel because that is the gospel and then learn the life you should live


Valerie Irene VanOrden's comment on 2014-01-11 02:20:10:

Succinct and to the point, topples many an idol, casts out many a foe. Not good works, not Sunday school attendance, though those things are good, that saves us. It is belief that Jesus died for us and rose again and is seated at the right hand of God the Father and will come again. We must become like children and let go of what we know in order to gain what He knows and who He is, what He has done for us, in our place, as our substitute for sin, on the cross. Death, burial and resurrection, all so that we could have fellowship with God.


Moses Kay Turay's comment on 2013-09-09 20:57:16:

When Jesus said, a man be born again it doesnt mean we should go back to our mothers womb and be born again. Born again mean, we must ascept His invitation and live a Christian life. Is also similar to the word Repent; and be an example to other Christian

It speaks for itself. I have nothing to worry about, I'm in a Bible teaching church, Riverview Baptist Church, where I am an active member.


Jeff's comment on 2012-08-04 12:29:18:

Jesus shed his blood on the cross so that we may be reconciled to God. To be born again the bible tells us we must first believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that he died for the sins of the world and rose again on the third day. If you believe this then ask Jesus to forgive you of all of your sins an he will come in to your heart and make you a new creature in Christ. After you accept Jesus, you need to be baptized and you will know without a doubt you have been born again.


Ricky's comment on 2012-07-27 20:12:12:

i once viewed this as a comandment, but its not, its a statement of fact In order to experience the kingdom of god you must be born from above. which no man can do based on his on choosing or doing, its the choice of God according to his gracious election.


ben weaver's comment on 2011-07-24 15:22:32:

V.3. Jesus' statement is a direct response to the ability to do miracles, as stated by Niccodemus. The kingdom of God (where God is king) relates to Niccodemus' phrase "except God be with him". Jesus said, "Except a man be born again (rather "from above") he cannot "see" or "enter" into (V.5) this specific aspect of God's kingdom, namely, the working of miracles. Aparently, Niccodemus was born from above in order to recognize that the miracles of Jesus were from God, although he did not enter into this aspect of performing miracles like the other disciples later on did. Vs. 4,5,& 6, define that this birth is spiritual in addition to the natural birth (of water). I cannot imagine this refers to water baptism.


Matthew's comment on 2011-05-29 22:54:40:

I believe he is referring to a carnal mind cannot view GODDLY things. I think this also goes for people seeking a physical kingdom to come....Do they not see the kingdom now? If not, what does this say for them?
