Pastor Andy Anderson:      Bible Study - Jesus Speaking About Eternal Life

From The Book of John 3:3-3:6, we focus on Jesus sayings:

Jesus speaking to Nicodemus: "Jesus answered and said unto him, Truly 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 again when he is old, can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born over again?”

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. That which is born of the Flesh is Flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit.”

In all of Jesus’ known statements that have been written, this is one of the most revealing and important. It confirms that there is life after physical death. That you can be born again, transcend from a Flesh Being to a Spiritual Being, and ascend from the Earthly Realm of life, to the Celistial, Spiritual realm of life within the Kingdom of God.

When Jesus mentioned being born of water, He is referring to a terrestrial, earthly, flesh birth. If you studied biology in school, you know that the human body is composed of 70% water. During your earthly flesh life, God gives every human being an opportunity to enrich their life by learning spiritual wisdom, becoming righteous and benevolent in their character, and strengthening their faith in God.

When Jesus mentioned being born of Spirit, he is referring to a celestial, spiritual body birth, which is being reborn from a terrestrial earthly death and entering into the celestial Kingdom of God and dwelling there for eternity.

Let’s try to understand specially what Jesus meant in his answer to Nicodemus:

When a human being experiences an earthly death, their physical terrestrial earthly body dies and returns to being dust of the Earth from whence it came. The Human Soul, however, is a living celestial temple that contains a person’s identity, their character and their life essence; it is eternal and never dies.

All human beings upon their earthly death, their soul will ascend or descend into a celestial resting place until the final Day of Judgment. On that day, all human souls will be judged regarding their belief, reverence and love for God, and for their depth of faith, their acts and degrees of immorality, and their level of repentance.

While you are in your celestial place of rest, the Christ, (Jesus) the Spiritual Born Son of God will come to you, to forgive you of your sins, baptize you with the Holy Spirit, and clean your soul of all immoral impurities, as a Bride is made ready for the Groom.

Therefore, those souls that have believed in God, and have repented from their wrong doings, that have had love, humility, compassion and forgiveness within them, the Christ, The Son of Man, shall come to them and say, you have the light of God within you, all your immoralities are forgiven, and I shall clean and purify your soul.

However, for those souls that did not believe in God and did not repent from their wrong doings and had no humility, compassion or forgiveness within them, the Christ, The Son of Man, shall come to them and say, I do not know you, you do not have the light of God within you, therefore, I shall depart from you, and you will exist with all your immoralities which will remain embedded in your soul, and they shall torment you for eternity.

The second birth or the spiritual rebirth shall come at the day of judgement. Those souls that were made pure by the Christ, the Son of Man, God shall resurrect their bodies from the dust of the Earth, the depths of the seas and from the ashes of fire, and make each of their bodies new and God shall reunite their soul, which He has saved, with their body, which He has resurrected and made new.

And to each one of them, God shall give immortality and He shall make them pure and clean and shall remove all knowledge of evil from their intellect, and God shall mold their bodies to be perfect, whole, clean and pure of any blemish, and their bodies shall have celestial beauty, as like unto an Angel, and their bodies will glimmer like that of a precious diamond, and God shall make it so their bodies do not age or suffer any decay, they shall never toil or weep and they shall feel no pain and they will never thirst or hunger or feel any discomfort, and will enter into God’s Heavenly Kingdom and dwell there for eternity.

This is the rebirth of Spirit that Jesus spoke of, that will enable you to enter into the Kingdom of God.

Sadly, however, for those souls whose sins were not forgiven by the Christ, and their souls not cleaned and purified, they shall not have a spiritual rebirth, but rather, will remain bodiless with their immoralities forever embedded in their soul, and shall dwell in ethereal darkness outside the kingdom of God for eternity.

For those who have an ear, let them hear.
