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.

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 !!

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
