To Enter Heaven You Must Be Surely Born Again

0 Comments


You cannot be a citizen of the world and enjoy the rights and benefits of Heaven. You must be a citizen of the kingdom of God here on earth and a candidate of the kingdom of Heaven, before you can be qualified to enjoy the benefits and protection of Heaven.

There is No dual citizenship in Heaven, and there is No middle way.  You cannot sit on the Fence, it is either you are in or you are out. Either you are in the Kingdom of God or you are in the Kingdom of Satan; either you are in the Kingdom of Light or you are in the Kingdom of darkness. It is either you are for Jesus Christ or you are for the world; there is no half citizenship.

In Matthew 6:24, Jesus said that no man can serve two masters: it is either he will hate one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. That we cannot serve God and mammon.

Just like there are criteria here on earth for anyone to become the citizen of a country, likewise there are criteria for becoming a citizen of the Kingdom of God here on earth and a candidate of the Kingdom of Heaven. And the number one criterion is that you must be Born Again.

This is repenting from all your sins and accepting the sacrifice Jesus Christ made for your sins on the cross by believing that he is the Son of God, that Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. He ransomed his life for yours on the cross because the Word of God made it clear that all have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God.

It also states that the wages of sin is death because every soul that sins must die. So the only way out is to accept the life of Jesus Christ in exchange for your life because as far as God’s law is concerned, you are already dead by sin. This is what born again is about; you have to believe with your heart that Jesus is the Son of God and confess him openly with your mouth to the renewing of your Spirit man.

Man is a spirit who has a soul and lives in a body. And because of sin, the spirit of man died spiritually, that is to say, it fell from glory where it has the same status as God and for man to be redeemed, God has to restore man to his original status as the son of God by sending His only begotten Son Jesus Christ to die for the sin of the world; that whosoever believes in him should not perish according to the law of sin and death, but have an everlasting life in Christ.

Atonement for sin is done by blood because the only way you can redeem a life from death is by another life. The purer the blood the more effective the atonement: since you cannot atone for the life of a prince with a slave; it is of course the life of a prince for a prince or a king for a king. Better still, a king for a prince.

So to atone for the sin of the world once and for all, it required a special and the purest blood there is, and there was no other blood pure enough to atone for the sin of the world, but the Blood of the only begotten Son of God himself, our Lord Jesus Christ.

You Must Be Born Again To Become The Candidate of Heaven

This why Jesus has to come and die for you and I to have God’s kind of life back again which we lost the day Adam sinned. That is why Jesus says in John 3: 3-6, that without any argument except a man is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Being born of water and of the Spirit is the only criterion to enter into the kingdom of God, because that which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

God is spirit and anyone that wants to worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. So man needed to be born of the Spirit and purified by the Word of God in order to be able to worship God appropriately.

Therefore, anyone aspiring for heaven’s citizenship must be born into the family of God (the kingdom of God) by the washing and purification of incorruptible Word of God, Jesus Christ (accepting him as the Son of God and living by his Words and commandments as your Lord and Saviour), and must obtain the certificate of adoption into sonship, also known as heavenly passport (the Holy Spirit).

And must abide in the Word of God and the Word of God abiding in him till the end (the commandments and precepts of God which is the constitution of heaven for its citizens); in order to remain the citizen of heaven and receive the crown of glory. That is as the Bible says it in 1 Peter 1:23, being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

No action, thought or secret is hidden from the Almighty. Our ways are bare before God, and He wants His children to always love and obey his Word, Jesus Christ. This is because the only way we can truly know Him and what what is in His mind (His thoughts, Plan and Will) is only through what He tells us, through His Word.

God wants our total loyalty and commitment because there is No dual citizenship in heaven. If you want to be for God, then be for God and if you want to embrace the world, then embrace the world, do not be a hypocrite because God hates hypocrisy. It is either your are in or out, do not be an unregistered citizen: either you are hot for God or cold for the devil.

You cannot site on the fence because God will reject you and throw you out. So be wise and make the right choice today while there is still time. Jesus says in Revelation 3:15-16, I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I would that you were cold or hot. So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth.


 

BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY

Romans 8:1-14 says that, There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.  

Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. For if you live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if you through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, you shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 

The Word of God says in Galatians 6:7-9be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap. For he that sows to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that sows to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Also in Romans 12:1-2, the Word of God says, I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
