Before you read this writing and study please pray this prayer.
Heavenly Father in Jesus Name I praise You. I come to you right now asking you to open my eyes that I may see and understand Your bread in this light that I am about to read. Holy Spirit quicken this light to me. Cause me to see what the Spirit of the Lord is teaching and unveiling in this study. Build me up in its truth and goodness. For this I give you praise and thanksgiving Father. Amen....
Being born again or born of God is a new creation reality. It is not of the flesh so get your mind off of that, but of the spirit of man, put your thinking now on that. Put your mind in this study on your real you, your inner self, YOUR SPIRIT, the man or the part of you that lives on beyond the grave. (You do have one you know, that is (a spirit) and he (your spirit) lives forever.
Just as the scriptures say that we must believe that God exist and that God is a Spirit (Hebrews 11:6 & John 4:24), even so we must believe we to are and have a spirit within(James 2:26). You must believe that you have a spirit and that God is the Father of spirits and God rewards the spirits that diligently seek Him and that God longs for His children to worship Him in spirit and in truth, see Hebrews 12:9,23) (2 Corinthians 7:16-17).
Spirits walk, and talk. and commune with spirits in similar ways like flesh to flesh do. Our spirit was created by the Lord in the beginning, to be the spiritual thing and the heavenly place in man, within us, within these bodies where God, who is a Spirit, would fellowship and talk with us and dwell with us by His Spirit in our inner man (John 4:24)....that Christ may dwell in your heart by faith....and again , it is written, Strengthened with all might By God's Spirit in your spirit, your inner man....REMEMBER? Ephesians 3:16-17. Jesus had unhindered, unquenched, ungrieved comminion, conversation, and communication with the Spirit of His Father within his body when on earth. See John 14:19,23, John 5:19-20,30.

Jesus said YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN. Jesus Said, that which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit (John 3:6). Jesus said this is a heavenly thing, it is the spirit of man that is the Lord's primary focus in (John 3:9-12). It is about the SPIRIT IN MAN, in us, not our flesh (See 1 Thessalonians 5:23 mans 3 parts).
Jesus said, A man must be born again. Jesus called our spirit, A MAN. Paul called our inside self, our spirit "THE INNER MAN "(2 Corinthians 4:16). Peter called our spirit, the hidden man of the heart (1 Peter 3:4). Your spirit must be BORN AGAIN Jesus said (meaning recreated). He did not say your spirit needs to be born. It already existed (See James 2:26). (John 3:3,5) He said it needed to be BORN *AGAIN*. Again being the key point, meaning changed, meaning recreated. Changed and transformed in it's own resurrection. The NEW BIRTH, Being BORN AGAIN is John 5:21, 24,26 fulfilled of and IN THE SPIRIT OF MAN. Jesus was not speaking here of the bodies resurrection in the end of time. He said of this scripture CONCERNING THE TIME FOR THIS, he said, The TIME for this resurrection NOW IS. IS RIGHT NOW. That is the REDEMPTION OF OUR SPIRIT.
Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 5:16 that from now on, those of us who are In Christ, we do not identify or know one another anymore after the flesh, referring to/bringing our focus to/our attention to knowing one another after the spirit, after OUR INNER MAN, OUR SPIRITS newly born again. Then he said in vs 17 the reason why. He wrote,... for if any man (meaning the hidden man of the heart 1 Peter 3:4, mans spirit, see also James 2:26, and Luke 8:54-55), for if any man be IN CHRIST, he (his inward man, his hidden man of his heart, his spirit) is A NEW CREATURE or NEW CREATION. He said of this new man that all of it's former things are gone and everything of this man is new and all this new is of God. 2 Corinthians 5:17. Paul was in the spirit speaking after that which is born of the Spirit for such is spirit and not flesh. Did you get that last sentence before this one? Very important light there just spoken. If not, then go back and read that sentence one more time.
Now we all know that Paul is not referring to the outer man above as a new creation for that is evident. We all have the same ol flesh, the same ol wrinkles, or scars, or aging physical body after we are saved and born again as we had when we were living in darkness separated from He that is the light of life. It, the bodies re birthing will take place, yes, but that will take place by the power of God later down the road in the future when it is changed in the twinkling of an eye at the coming of the Lord and in the resurrection as spoken of in (1 Thessalonians 4:14-18 & 1 Corinthians 15:50-54 & Philippians 3:20-21). No Paul is heavenly minded (John 3:12). Paul in this new creation born again light, is spiritual now in his wisdom and not carnal. Paul is inward man minded. Paul is out of the mind of the flesh and in the spirit. Paul is walking in the spirit not in the flesh (Galations 5:16-17). Paul is inside spirit minded as Christ was (See John 6:63). We need to be so as well or we will fall short of understanding much of Paul's revelations as revealed in Ephesians 2:1-10) and of other SPIRITUAL TEACHINGS that the flesh does not profit from.
Paul preached, If any man be In Christ he is a new CREATURE. He that is a new creature in Christ, scriptures have been fulfilled INSIDE HIM (Important Point There). He, in his inner man, in the heavenly place of the kingdom of God within, in the hidden man of his heart has been BORN AGAIN, changed in his spirit man, re created in his invisible thing, in his invisible man, in his spirit (See Colossians 1:14-17). The scriptures that have been fulfilled in him, fulfilled on the INSIDE OF HIM IN HIS INNER MAN, IN HIS SPIRIT are these. Read them, study them all, John 3:3,5,6 & John 5:24 & John 6:63 & 2 Corinthians 5:17 & Galations 6:14-16 & Ephesians 2:1-10 & Ephesians 4:23-24 & Colossians 1:12-14 & Colossians 2:10 & Colossians 3:1-4 & Colossians 3:10-11 & 1 John 5:1-4 ( John 3:1-2 & Colossians 1:27).
Well now that we have you inside minded. Now that we have wet your spiritual appetite. Now that we have you spirit of man within minded, we will stop this section of the light and ask that you study the scriptures listed all thru this writing. Familiarize yourself to them. Feast on them until their light dawns.
Friends Jesus taught us about heavenly things. He opened our minds to Spirit and spiritual realities, things and about spirit beings. He even told us that GOD IS A SPIRIT, that Angels are spirits, that demons are spirits. And He taught and has revealed to us that Man He created with 3 parts as revealed in 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24, it reads.....And the very God of peace sanctify all your parts; and I pray to God that your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. vs 24) Faithful is the Lord that has called you, he will do this.
Friends we all are spirit beings. We presently live inside these physical bodies. Our spirits are the mystery life force to the blood, James 2:26. Our soul is the place in us of our minds and emotions and reasoning faculties. If the spirit is not saved. If the spirit is never born again or re created in Christ Jesus which is always God's creating place so to speak (See John 1:1-3), then ALL IS LOST FOREVER of that person. That is why Jesus so seriously emphasized that YOU MUST, YOU MUST, YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN.
All of Christ glory that they beheld of him (John 1:14) when he walked on earth that made him stand miles and miles above all the rest, was He and the Fathers Heavenly Spiritual Realities so Greatly Manifested, and their Spirit Power, their Spirit Light, their Spirit Love, their Spirit Holiness, Mercy, Compassion, Wisdom, Power and Glory thru the GREAT ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT WAS WITHIN AND UPON JESUS WITHOUT MEASURE (John 3:34 & Acts 10:38 & John 14:10)....and this God, who is a Spirit. Our God, our Almighty Heavenly Holy Father has done a great thing of Himself to OUR SPIRITS that are born again in Christ Jesus. Stay tuned to find out. Much more to come about this very subject......Glory to God in Jesus Name, Amen......Love you In Christ Jesus......deno.....please share freely
