In what we know as the Christian world there is the familiar expression of "born again".  We hear the
phrase of "born again Christian" when someone is speaking of another person, or of himself.   

We read in the Bible in many places where it is speaking about being born again.  Many think that being
born again occurs during ones lifetime in this world.  Others maintain that this birth takes place after one
dies and that he will be resurrected (brought back to life) at a certain time in the future, and this will
constitute the new birth.

We will look at some scriptures and the definition of the Greek word that is translated into the English
word "born".

1 Peter 1:23 Being born again <anagennao>, not of corruptible seed but of incorruptible , by the word  of
God , which liveth and abideth for ever.

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born
<gennao> again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

The Greek word translated 'born' is "gennao".  This word can mean and does mean the whole birthing
process from conception until the delivery of the baby.  It can mean conceive or begotten, according to
the subject or context.  (1080.  gennaw  gennao,  ghen-nah'-o  
from a variation of 1085; to procreate (properly, of the father, but by extension of the mother); figuratively,
to regenerate:--bear, beget, be born, bring forth, conceive, be delivered of, gender, make, spring).

When we read In Peter about being born again, we can tell by the context that he is speaking about being
conceived again, because he goes on to say 'not of corruptible seed, (corruptible = perishable), but of
incorruptible or imperishable seed.  When a person is conceived in the mother's womb it is with the
sperm or 'seed' of the father which penetrates the egg of the mother and starts growing.  First it starts
dividing into cells which are called stem cells, then a fetus, but it is not a baby at the time when it is called
a 'seed'.  It develops in the womb until it has become a mature baby and ready to enter into this physical

Jesus was speaking of a spiritual birth when He said that one must be born again to see or enter the
kingdom of God.  The spiritual birth follows the same pattern as a physical birth.  First there is conception
when the seed is united with the egg, then the period of growing to be a fully developed fetus or human
being, then the time when the baby comes out of the womb into this world.  So is the spiritual.  First there
is the conception when the imperishable seed (the Holy Spirit) is united with the egg (human mind), then
a period of growing (overcoming the wrong desires of the flesh).  Then at the resurrection of the just, the
just being those who have repented and received the Sprit of Yahweh (Holy Spirit), and have endured to
the end (of their lives) in growing in grace and knowledge and overcoming.  At the resurrection they
enter into the spirit world, or the kingdom of God and are the sons of God.  They follow the pattern of a
fully developed human fetus that enters this physical world and the kingdom of man and is the son of man.

Yahshua (Jesus) further said in John 3:4 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?
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he
cannot enter the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit 7 Marvel not that I
said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
8 The wind blows where it will and thou hear the sound thereof, but cannot tell from where it cometh, and
where it goes, so is every one that is born of the Spirit..

We know by the context here that Yahshua is not speaking of conception, but of .the time when one
comes out of the womb and as the expression is in Italian, "comes to the light" , because Nicodemus
asked Him how it was possible to enter a mother's womb and be born again or come out again.  Yahshua
showed that He was talking about a spiritual birth when He told Nicodemus:

John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Marvel not
that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.  8 The wind blows where it wills, and you hear the sound
thereof, but can not tell where it comes, and where it goes: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

Here He was telling Nicodemus the difference in being born again of the spirit and being born of the
flesh. When one is spirit, or a spirit being after being born of the spirit, he is invisible, just like the wind.
Here is a plainer translation of this

verse: 8 The wind blows where it wills, and you hear its voice, but you do not know where it comes from
or where it is going. So it is with every one who has been born of the Spirit."

He is saying that those who enter the kingdom of God (the spirit world) will have power to effect things
and circumstances on this earth, but no one would be able to see them do it, or know how they did,
unless the born again one chooses to reveal Himself.  But the important thing that Yashua is saying is
that there is a physical birth and a spiritual birth.

As long as one is flesh and blood he cannot enter or see the Kingdom of Yahweh (God)    (God):  1Co 15:
50 I tell you this, brethren: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable
inherit the imperishable.

Those who claim that they are born again do not understand the scriptures, nor the plan and purpose of
Yahweh.  According to Jesus, one must be born again in order to enter the kingdom of God, and God's
word says that flesh and blood cannot enter it.  If someone who is flesh and blood claims that he is born
again, he in affect is saying that he is in the kingdom of God.  This contradicts the scriptures.  

God (Yahweh) is creating a family, that is one reason Jesus called Him the Father.  Not only is He the
Father of everything that exists, because He created all, but because He is creating sons:   Joh 1:12 But
as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God. {power: or, the right, or,

When one repents and is baptized, and receives the gift of the Holy Spirit, he is considered a Son of God.  
It is like the physical conception when a woman becomes pregnant, the growing fetus in her womb is
considered a son or daughter of the parents.

1 Jo 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but  we know
that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

Just as a son or daughter growing in the womb of the mother, they do not know what they will be like
when they are finally born, or come to the light, so the scripture above is saying that those who will enter
into the spirit world at the resurrection of the just do not know what they will be like, only they will be like
the resurrected Yahshua.

Ro 8:29 ¶ For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestine to be conformed to the image of his Son, that
he might be the firstborn among many brethren.   

1Jo 3:2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we
know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.

It shows in this passage that those who have been impregnated with the Holy Spirit are considered the
brothers of Jesus, who went through the process of being a human being, of dying, and then resurrected
into the spirit world, with a spiritual body. He was the firstborn of many more who will experience the
same process. Being born into this world as a human being, then dying, then to be fully born again, or
come to the light of the spirit world, at the resurrection, with a spirit body, just as Jesus has now.

God has allowed Satan to deceive the whole world. Most people in the world believe that when they die
they will go to heaven. They call it "The happy hunting grounds" or "Nirvana" or some other name, but
essentially it is a place of happiness.

Re 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives
the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

This deception has blinded the eyes of men so they cannot understand the Truth.

Ro 11:7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeks for; but the election hath obtained it, and
the rest were blinded

2Co 3:14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remains the same veil untaken away in the
reading of the old testament; which veil is done away in Christ.

2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of
the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
