  • While I'm not totally clear what Paul is talking about here, maybe some Jewish tradition, IDK it's unclear.

    At first I thought You can not come to the Father but through the son and the believer was that avenue, it just wasn't sitting well.

    After a lot of prayer and a lot of digging, two words came to me. Born again. You must be born again to get to heaven. How do you do that?

    You should understand who Jesus is, the Son of God, that you are a sinner in need of a saviour, and believe (what Jesus did).

    (The Gospel)

    1 Corinthians 15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;

    2 By which also ye are SAVED, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

    3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

    4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

    Believe the Gospel and you will recieve the Holy Spirit, God's mark on your soul, and be saved.. You can not lose it.

    Call out to Jesus, thank him for his life saving sacrifice!

    Greetings in Jesus name, Mike.

    If I may, please allow me to offer some correction.

    Jesus Christ told Nicodemus in John 3:3 that a man must be born again to SEE the kingdom of God. 1 Peter 1:23 is how one is born again, being convicted by the word and knowing they are a sinner and who Jesus is and what He did.

    Jesus then told Nicodemus in John 3:5, a man must be born of water and the Spirit to ENTER the kingdom.

    Acts 2:38 is how one obeys the gospel of Jesus Christ and is born of water and the Spirit: repenting & being baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost which will cause you to speak in an unknown tongue.

    You see, there's a big difference between seeing something and entering it. I can see a ferrari on the street, but that doesn't mean I'm in it.

    Obeying the gospel of Jesus Christ is how one is able to enter the kingdom of God.

    Yea, Paul preached the gospel of the Death, Burial, & Ressurection of Christ.

    Acts 2:38 is how one obeys the gospel & has their (past) sins remitted and the blood applied to their life.

    Repentance = Death (dying to the flesh & the old man)

    Baptism in Jesus' name = burial with Christ

    Receiving the Holy Ghost = resurrection in the Spirit and power to walk after the Spirit & not the flesh

    Praise the Lord.

    I pray you can receive these important truths.

    Sincerely,

    Andrew
