(Sharing Time) Why we need to be born again


WITHOUT our knowing, we’re all children of the devil. That’s what’s true in the Spiritual about us—humankind. We all inherit the seed of disobedience from our first created parents Adam and Eve, hence, we all belong to the so-called fallen Adamic race. Upon birth, we already have that seed, and, therefore, there’s a need for us to be born again—no longer in the flesh, but in the Spirit. Jesus told Nicodemus: “VERILY, VERILY, I SAY UNTO THEE, EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN AGAIN, HE CANNOT SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD. NICODEMUS SAID 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 AGAIN? 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.”(John 3:3—5)

Jesus was telling them about man’s spiritual reality, that there’d be no Salvation to talk about, unless be born again (no longer in the flesh, as man is born only once in the physical) in the Spirit. Man is simply powerless in obeying the Will of God only, unless given the power (in the Spirit) to enable him to follow the Will of God only. He’ll always be overpowered by the devil who’s a powerful spirit, but can’t match the power of God, his Creator, as well.

The devil was once God’s archangel, the same rank of Michael, God’s another archangel. But, Lucifer became ambitious and wanted to replace God in heaven. It was Michael who fought and drove him away from heaven on orders of God. While Michael obeyed God, and only loyal to Him, Lucifer who was once the angel of light in heaven, disobeyed God, as he wanted to be God, too.

THIS is why we need the power of the Holy Spirit in us, so we can vanquish the devil in our life. This is where we need to be born again, as Jesus taught the people in those days to do in order to achieve Eternal Life, in the end.
