YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN

"The whole world lieth in wickedness (1 Jn 5.19)."

We know that "the whole world lies in wickedness" and that every person must be born again (Jn 3.3&7). The purpose of this paper is to explain how a person is born again or becomes a new creature.

The kingdom of God increased by others being born again. This occurs through the preached gospel message. The Apostle Paul wrote, "I have begotten you through the gospel (1 Cor 4.15b)." "In Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God (everyone that has be born again) (Gal 6.15)." Therefore Christ commands us to - "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature (Mk 16.15)." This is His most important command. But this is also the least understood of His commands because it has been misinterpreted to mean that we must tell another that they are a sinner and have them say a prayer to be saved (Please see PRAYER OF SALVATION and THE SINNER'S PRAYER on www.preach-the-gospel.org.). .

How can every one be born again if the gospel is not being preached as it ought to be? It must be preached in person with our mouths, as the Apostle Paul preached it (1 Cor 1.21, Eph 6.19-20 & Col 4.3-4). Radio, TV and Internet do not count. Let me define the gospel according to the scriptures, and how to easily preach it as I do in all my papers: The gospel the Apostle Paul himself received and preached is - "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose again the third day (See 1 Cor 1-4). We can easily preach this gospel to another after asking them, "Did you hear the good news (Gospel means good news)?" I call this the catch phrase (Mt 4.19). Telling another the good news to another in person with our mouth (Eph 6.19 & Col 4.3-4) gives them the opportunity to believe on Christ and be born again (1 Jn 5.1) (See 47 PASSAGES ON BELIEF on www.preach-the-gospel.org that prove that a person is saved by believing on/in Christ.).

The kingdom of God hinges upon us going into all the world and preaching the gospel (Mk 16.15) for this is how others are born again into his kingdom (or family). Teaching them that believe to preach the gospel as well multiplies the seed (Mt 28.20). "This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness to all nations; and then shall the end come (Mt 24.14)." Christ will then return and take us to be with him for ever (1 Thes 4.13-18). This is that blessed hope and glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ... (Tit 2.13).

Please read a one-page paper daily on www.preach-the-gospel.org for encouragement to preach the gospel and to teach them that believe to preach it.
