Judging ~ Born Again
Romans 9:1. I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost.
Galatians 1:20. Now the things which I write unto you, behold, before God, I lie not.
The Bible teaches us that there is a natural body and a spiritual body (1 Cor. 15:44). It further teaches us that the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1 Cor. 2:14).
As the book 'A World Deceived' clearly explains, the only way for mankind to be able to understand the Bible is through repentance; to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).
Satan's Kingdom (Matt. 12:26) is divided through literally thousands of different religions and their man-made doctrines and commandments.
Most modern religions also use the Bible as their foundation, but not in truth and in its natural state the spirit of mankind (referred to as the devil) also quotes scripture to his purpose but not in truth.
People use little snippets out of the Bible, but are unable to understand the spiritual meaning. In fact, the Bible teaches us in John 10:1; Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold is a thief and a robber.
Two phrases that the devil likes to use to confuse the people of this world are: "Judge not, that ye be not judged" and "Born Again".
Christ came into this world for judgment (John 16:8). The believers go by hearing (John 3:8; 5:30) and because they can clearly see and know the difference between darkness and light, they are able to judge in all things as it is recorded by Paul in 1 Cor. 2:15; But he that is spiritual judgeth (discerneth) all things.
Their judgment is also true. They do not judge after the flesh and it is not them that actually do the judging but the spirit of their Father which dwells in them (John 8:15-17).
Mankind in his natural state has already been judged (John 16:11). In fact, judgment starts with the believers and the House of God (1 Peter 4:17).
No believer has ever dared to judge him/herself and make the claim of being "Born Again". This is self- transformation, the devil transformed into an angel of light and this kind of self-proclamation is an abomination in God's eyes (2 Cor. 11:13-15; Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Gal. 4:8; Rev. 12:9).
Through religious doctrines, the principalities of this world (Eph. 6:12), have many people believe these days that they are so-called "Born Again", only to find out at judgment day that they have been deceived (Matt. 9:16,17; 22:12).
Nowhere is it recorded in the Bible that people claimed that they were "Born Again". Scripture explains (and as instructed by Christ and the apostles), that a person must be 'Born Again', not of corruptible seed (our natural father), but of incorruptible, by the word of God (1 Peter 1:23).
This is why every person is called to repentance; to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).
The book 'A World Deceived' clearly explains the difference between the natural and the spiritual body (1 Cor. 15:44) and the process of repentance.
