Born Again

by
Born Again: Zeal

Iam sure we are all aware of the term "born again" but few fail to grasp the deeper understanding of this belief in which Jesus mentioned in scripture stating, "In order for one to enter the kingdom of heaven they must be born again of water and spirit.

Water symbolizes cleansing, purity, refreshment, thus if we reflect back to the story of Noah and the great flood, one will understand the deeper meaning regarding how water is symbolized.
Being born again of water and spirit would ultimately be purifying, refreshing the spirit, through the holy spirit.

Water is also symbolized as spirit.
It's but a mere analogy, revealing the vastness, the formless, and the pure nature reflected.
When Christ states, "In order to enter the kingdom of heaven, one must be born of water and spirit, it would best be interpreted as in order to enter the kingdom of God, one must be born again into his spirit, the holy spirit, which cleanses the sinful pollution within our individual spirits making it pure.

A renewal of the mind, which transforms us into a new creature, developing a new character, the very character of God.
"Born again", correlates with the sole purpose that Jesus manifested himself, and was crucified.
The crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus is merely a direct reflection, of being born again.
In order to be born again we must die too self, and ressurect in him.
