Regeneration is a lost doctrine. It gets buried under marriage and financial advice, even under justification and faith. It’s sort of tacked on.

This is unfortunate. When we do not understand regeneration we undermine Christ, the cross, grace, God’s creative power and pretty much everything necessary for the Christian life. Here’s the flow of regeneration.

Jesus says in John 8:23, “Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.”

Then He says in John 15:19, “ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.”

Jesus Christ is not of this world, He is from Heaven. People who are born again are placed in Christ and become heavenly people.

You can’t become a heavenly person by working into it, by buying into it, by following some guy into it, by saying a magic formula, or by any other means other than by a supernatural rebirth.

You must be born again. Whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. Without rebirth following Christ, defeating sin, and having victory over this world are impossible. With the rebirth we are more than conquerors. Watch out!

  1. I can never hear that truth enough. He did it all, and we get the benefits of the Kingdom, including everlasting life. Awesome

  2. Exactly, Christians have not dared to believe that what Jesus died to give us is truly what He said it is. Watch out? defiantly – because God is revealing His fullness.
