John 3:3-5

“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith 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? 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.”

So many of the discourses Jesus had with close friends and individuals seeking His counsel offer us key insights into the most important subjects in Scripture. One of these conversations is that of Jesus with Nicodemus, one of the more integratable Pharisees. They speak on an intimate level about the most important subject of all, the New Birth.

We can talk of the Godhead, but without the New Birth we do not have access to the eternal dwelling with God that we so eagerly desire. We understand doctrine, but without being born anew in God’s love, doctrine means nothing. We can attempt to live righteously in an outward way, but without a new birth we cannot be counted as righteous from within. Every Believer must have the New Birth. Because of this the devil fights the confidence of your rebirth more than anything else. Constantly you can question, “Am I really born again?”

When the enemy does this the best way to combat him is to revisit your experience with the Lord. The worst thing you can do is complicate the doctrine. The best thing you can do is to allow the Holy Spirit to revisit in your heart that experience that was without words, without commotion, and without mankind intervening. Revisit that supernatural experience whereby you repented, were baptised in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ as the disciples baptised upon Jesus command, and whereby you sanctified your life and were filled with the Holy Spirit. Revisit that supernatural experience of when who Jesus Christ is became a personal reality to you.

Don’t let the enemy plague you with doubts and fears. If you aren’t sure, then make your election sure between you and Christ (Ⅱ Peter 1:10). If you are sure then revisit the beauty of your experience with Him. Allow His presence to wash away all fears.

58-0619B - “Ye Must Be Born Again”

So the borned again experience tells what we are. It doesn't mean that we... I believe in shouting and all the manifestations and demonstrations of the Spirit, but yet that's not it yet. See? It's something different from that. It's a--it's a new creature, something in the heart. And I wonder if we ministers, both man and women, if many times we don't just say the word, "You must be born again," and take it over the head of the people like that. When we've got to come back to the spot and let them know what a birth means. See? It's got to come back to something more than words; it's got to come back to a--a fundamental fact, and that is this great experience of being borned again and what it produces for us. See?
