BORN AGAIN

DID YOU KNOW that to be “born again" means to be regenerated in both the flesh and the spirit through obedience to the Torah (the Law) of YHVH (YAH-WHEY)?

In John 3:3, “Y’hoshua answered and said unto him, ‘Verily, verily I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of YHVH.’ ”

Now, most of us have been taught that all we have to do is say a little prayer and bingo! we are “saved,” or “born again.” Yet, Philippians 2:12 tells us to “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” Then, Titus 3:5 talks about being saved “by the washing of regeneration.” Also, Ephesians 5:26 refers to sanctification and cleansing “with the washing of water by the word.”

These passages clearly teach that regeneration, sanctification and cleansing came by the spoken Word of YHVH through Moses before the Messiah was born. The concepts of regeneration, sanctification and cleansing are part of a process which occurs through our obedience to the Word. This is the same Word that the Messiah obeyed when He walked the earth to show us the way to the Father.

In John 14:2-3, the Messiah talks about going to prepare a place in the Father’s house for His disciples (students of Him). In Verse 4, He said, “. . . where I go you know, and the way you know.” And, in verse 6, He said, “I am the way.”

The Greek word way, #3598, literally means a road, or (figuratively) a mode or means, i.e. way of life. He lived in obedience to the Father’s commandments and told us, in Matthew 7:21, that the ones who enter into the Kingdom are the ones doing the will of the Father in heaven.

Finally, in 1 John 2:6, we are told, “He who says he abides in Him (the Messiah) ought himself to walk just as He walked.”
