Ye Must Be Born Again!
by David J. Stewart | August 2016
John 3:3, “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
It was estimated that the faithful minister George Whitefield (1714-1770) had preached on the subject, “Ye Must Be Born Again!” over 3,000 times. Someone once asked Pastor Whitefield why he preached so many times on the same subject. He replied, “Because Sir, ye must be born again!” This is what drove Whitefield, a belief that a person was lost without Christ's forgiveness and that the new birth was the most important thing in any one's life. Jesus plainly warned in John 3:3 that unless a man is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Again in John 3:5 we read, “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.”
My friend, being religious won't get you into Heaven. YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!
Getting water baptized will just get you wet. YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!
Joining a religious group will just make you a member. YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!
To join the true New Testament Church, YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!
Calling yourself a “Christian” won't do it. YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!
YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN! YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN! YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!
So how does a person get born-again? It is very easy and simple, you simply BELIEVE the Good News (i.e., the Gospel). What Good News must I believe? You must BELIEVE the Biblical truth that Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for your sins, and that He was buried. You must BELIEVE that Jesus bodily resurrected three days later from the dead. To “BELIEVE” means that you have personally trusted Jesus Christ as your sin payment. If you'll simply receive Christ's sacrifice on the cross as full-payment for your sins, believing that He raised up 72 hours later from the dead, you'll be immediately and forever born-again. Once you're saved, you can never lose your salvation. If saved, always saved! That is God's promise. Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN! Please don't be distracted by the Devil, so that you miss the only bus going to Heaven. Religion will take you down an exciting path, but the long road ends in the Lake of Fire. Religion has always tried to fit men with glasses, to see things from their own perspective, but the Lord Jesus Christ wants to open our eyes. YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN! Water baptism cannot help you escape the damnation of your sins. YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN! There is no other name apart from Jesus Christ of Nazareth, by which we must be saved to enter Heaven (Acts 4:10-12). YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN! YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!
Please don't add turning from your sins to faith, or you will die in your sins and go to Hell. All that is required for our salvation was paid in full by the blood of Jesus Christ (1st Peter 1:18-19). Beware of any perverted Gospel that places the burden of sin upon the sinner's shoulders instead of Christ alone on the cross. Jesus' sacrifice alone is our sin payment! If you ever go to Heaven, it will be solely because of what Christ did to pay for your sins on the cross, and the blood that He sprinkled on the heavenly Mercy Seat (Hebrews 9:12, 24; 12:24; Hebrews 4:14-16; Romans 8:34). We are saved by faith alone! YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!
It's what Jesus did for you, and not what you can do for Him, that gets you to Heaven. It's not what your doing that gets you to Heaven, it's where you're looking... LOOK TO JESUS! Isaiah 45:22, “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.” YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!
John 8:32 and 36, “And ye shall know the
truth, and the truth shall make you free ...
If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
