The Kingdom of God
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. (John 3:3 KJV)
Jesus Christ is speaking to Nicodemus in this scripture verse. When He speaks of being born again, He is not making a reference to new physical birth, as that would indeed be impossible! He is speaking of new spiritual birth. Unless a man has the Spirit of God living in his heart, he is found to be dead in trespasses and sin rather than existing spiritually alive in Christ.
Any man who is not able to spiritually know or discern the Truth of God and is existing without spiritual knowledge has not been born into the kingdom of God but remains dead in his sin. Being born again is a spiritual matter of a person being quickened alive and having the Spirit of God alive and thriving inside his softened heart. It is a robust and spiritually healthy heart condition.
Being born again allows a man to be both spiritually alive now and for all eternity through the supernatural power of God at work in his life.
