What does it mean to be reborn by water and spirit?
Water is the Word and the spirit is the holy spirit, in other words, the spirit of God. It means to be reborn by God’s seed (Lk 8:11) and God’s spirit. (Jn 3:5; 1 Pt 1:23). It is not the rebirth of a flesh.
Jesus spoke about rebirth, because the Israelites at that time were not reborn by God’s seed but by the inherited seed of Satan. However, the Jews of Israel did not realize this fact and thought that they were born of God as His chosen people and family, and they thought that God was with them.
Jesus and the Jews argued about this in John 8. Jesus testified that Israel and the Jews were not the children of God, but the children of Satan. The Jews claimed that they were descendants of Abraham, God’s children, and the chosen people.
Let us briefly look at the words of Jesus and the words of the Jews.
<Jn 8:37-47> 37 I know that you are Abraham’s descendants. Yet you are looking for a way to kill me, because you have no room for my word. 38 I am telling you what I have seen in the Father’s presence, and you are doing what you have heard from your father.” 39 “Abraham is our father,” they answered.
“If you were Abraham’s children,” said Jesus, “then you would do what Abraham did. 40 As it is, you are looking for a way to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things. 41 You are doing the works of your own father.”
“We are not illegitimate children,” they protested. “The only Father we have is God himself.”
42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me. 43 Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. 44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! 46 Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me?
47 Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”
Jesus told the Jews that he knew they were descendants of Abraham in flesh. However, he told them that, in spirit, they were children born of their father, the devil. Not all of Israel was Israel, and not all Jews were Jews. This was because the kind of spirit one receives determines whose spiritual children they will become. In other words, the outside and the inside are different. Just as Jesus said (Jn 8:37), Israel and the Jews at that time were physically descendants of Abraham. However, the spirit that was in them was the devil. That is why Jesus said, “Flesh gives birth to flesh, but spirit gives birth to spirit” (Jn 3:6). He talked about the spirit not the flesh (Jn 3:5). Because Abraham’s descendants, the Jews, were like Adam and Eve, born of Satan’s seed of the word and Satan’s evil spirit, Jesus told them to be reborn by God’s seed and God’s spirit.
Up to now, we have talked about the reality of the situation 2,000 years ago. Another 2,000 years have passed, so what is the reality of today? Let us look at the prophecies that are recorded and their physical reality. Please listen carefully.
God and Jesus said in the New Testament—Revelation 6, Matthew 24, and Revelation 18—that the sun, moon, and stars will darken and fall (Mt 24:29; Rv 6:12-14), that not one stone here will be left on another (Mt 24:1-2), that all nations have fallen because they have drunk the maddening wine of adulteries, that all nations have been led astray and married to the spirit of the devil (refer to Rv 18:3, 23). At night (spiritual) when the sun, moon, and stars have darkened, the Son of man will come on clouds and will send his angels with a loud trumpet call to gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other (Mt 24:29-31).
Jesus prophesied about this event in the New Testament, and today, this event has come upon us like a thief in the night (1 Thes 5:1-9).
Today, when this kind of event occurred, the Christians are claiming that they are the chosen people who believe in God and Jesus. How are they different from the Jews at the First Coming? Aren’t they the same? Today, the world of believers, all nations, have been led astray, all nations have fallen and married to the evil spirits (Rv 18). Receiving the maddening wine of adultery (words of commentaries: fruit of the knowledge of good and evil) is marrying the spirit of Satan. Where? In one’s own church.
That is why the churches have crumbled, not one stone is left on another, and all nations have fallen. Without being born by God’s seed and God’s spirit, can they enter heaven? Please answer.
Even though these events occurred, aren’t they thinking and believing that they are God’s pastor and God’s children, like the Jews who thought that they were the descendants of Abraham? Aren’t they like the sun, moon, and stars that lost their light (Mt 24:29)? There is no one who knows and believes in the New Testament, is there not?
What are the New Testament prophecies that Jesus promised about? What did he say that he will do? Is this not the end of the churches of the chosen people? The sun, moon, and stars are the chosen people (Gn 37:9-11). When the sun, moon, and stars fall from heaven, they have become sinners who betrayed and are no longer the chosen people. The work of the spirit has returned to flesh, like the way Adam and Eve returned to flesh. Despite this, would one still act like they know, self-righteous and holy?
The end of age that God and Jesus spoke about, the end of age that the disciples spoke about and the New Testament spoke about is referring to the end of the churches of the former-heaven. Why do you not believe in the words of the promise? They do not even believe and do not know. They have become complacent and corrupted. Like Physical Israel, they have become the family of the dragon (refer to Mt 7:15-20).
The world of religion has become like this at the time of Jesus’ second coming, so with no exceptions, everyone must be reborn of God’s seed and the holy spirit. One must be sealed with the words of revelation today, become part of the 12 tribes purchased by Jesus’ blood (Rv 5:9-10), which is the promised kingdom, the promised temple, and the promised pastor. That way, one can become part of the people of heaven in God’s new kingdom.
Today, at the end of Spiritual Israel, one must follow the promised pastor to receive salvation. This is the promise of salvation, the New Testament. Why do you not believe in the words of the promise?
Just like how Israel’s Solomon at the Old Testament Era worshiped gentile gods (1Kgs 11), the Christians in Korea worshiped the emperor of Japan during the era of Japanese colonization. And as pointed out in the 7th Forum by the Korean Christian Media Association (April, 2008), Christian denominations, majority of them Presbyterians, were brought together to support the change in Korean constitution to extend the repeated presidency of the Korean president at the time (year 1969). From this gathering emerged the Christian Council of Korea (year 1989).
Also, the Stewardship Education Institute that was established around the Presbyterian denomination (year 1980), controlled the Christian churches in Korea with the political power from the world. And now, the CCK, because of money and authority issues, is divided into twos and threes, calling each other a cult, are they not? Like the First Coming, they claim that they are orthodoxy, and they will call anyone who do not belong to them a cult.
What they teach is not the Bible. They combined the Bible with what they have brainstormed to form commentaries. This is the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil, the maddening wine of adulteries, the venom of serpents, and the poison of cobras (refer to Mt 13; Rv 17, 18)
Because this is the reality, we must be born again. If one is not reborn by God’s seed and God’s spirit, he/she cannot go to heaven. You know that this world is sown with two types of seeds (Mt 13), and you will be able to tell who is born by which seed by their actions, their fruit. Can they call themselves people belonging to God? Look at the 12 tribes of heaven. Are they not different from them?
Come. This is heaven. God is here.
