You Must Be Born Again!-didadi

Spirituality THE SECRET DISCIPLE BY NIGHT In the 3rd chapter of John, Nicodemus (a high ranking Pharisee ruler; and secret disciple of Jesus [19:38-42]) first visited Jesus in the cloak of night. The first thing Jesus said in verse 3, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. At the time, the Kingdom of God (in all the Gospels) was a futuristic event right up there with the Day of Judgment. But many Christians erroneously believe it is interchangeable with the Kingdom of Heaven (only in Matthew); which alludes to something more immediate. However, the .mon assumption in chapter 3 is that Jesus was speaking 2-dimensional. But remember, he did not say, Except a man repent In a chapter where no one understands the encrypted language, how do they properly interpret any element thereof? No one understands because reincarnation is no longer a part of Christian dogma. The word reincarnation is not biblical. But what about the concept? Ergo, the evolution of the spirit via a series of earthly incarnations. This explains Nicodemus response in verse 4, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Contrary to popular school-of-thought, Nicodemus knew exactly what Jesus was talking about! His conversation was closer to 3-dimensional! In order for anyone TO (literally) SEE the Kingdom of God (light-years down the road), they must be born again … and again and again … via a series of earthly incarnations until they achieve that level of awareness! Otherwise, their spirits will not be able to see the Kingdom. And one has to see it before they can enter it! This process really has nothing to do with repentance; it will occur, regardless! This is also one of the main reasons the Gospel of John is considered different than Matthew and the others. THE NAIL IN THE COFFIN The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it .eth, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. Now that were on the proper subject, can you understand the text of verse 8? In analogy to the wind that blows back and forth, here and there and goes to and fro; born again spirits behave in the same manner in their incarnations back and forth to earth. It was the decision of the translators to capitalize the s in the word "Spirit" in an effort to make the subject the Holy Spirit rather than reincarnation. Do Christians go to heaven after they die? If they do, they dont stay very long! And such a place is not exclusive to Christians! But much of the text of Matthew and the other gospels (re: repenting, etc.) is manipulated to create such an illusion. But the following equation might shed a little more light on the subject: Born (Incarnation) + Again (Re) There is a relationship between born again and reincarnation. Broken down, they mean the exact same thing! However, the former is laymans language and the later, scientific! Regardless, does the Bible provide any examples? In Matthew 16:13 Jesus asked his disciples, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? Their response, Some say, John the Baptist; some, Elias (Elijah); and others, Jeremias (Jeremiah) or one of the prophets. With the exception of John the Baptist; Elijah, Jeremiah and all the other prophets lived hundreds of years prior. This is the relevant part of the conversation. Ergo, one of the old prophets had returned via a physical birth. Repent and heaven were not a part of the equation. However, the John the Baptist part of the conversation in Matthew was different. It did not regard reincarnation. On the contrary, many of the people thought Jesus was the resurrection of John the Baptist. According to the story, he had been imprisoned for telling the Governor to repent. He was later beheaded for sport prior to this conversation [Mt 14:1-12]. In a nutshell, the .mon mindset did not regard John the Baptist going to heaven after he died. He either returned immediately via a resurrection or down the road via the born again process. THE WISE MEN In the birth of Jesus story recorded in Matthew 2, one of the main elements is the wise men from the east. Ergo, these men were wise in EASTERN PHILOSOPHIES! One of the most .mon teachings in the east is: REINCARNATION! We are left to assume; after this visit the wise men never laid eyes on Jesus again. Why do you think there is such a large gap between chapters 2 and 3? In chapter 2, Jesus is a very young child no older than 2-years of age. In chapter 3, he is a grown man of about 30-years of age. What happened during those missing 28-years? What are the chances Jesus had a lot of contact and tutelage from those wise men? Who better to teach him? And did John the Baptist with his message of repentance and the Kingdom of Heaven just pop up out of nowhere? Jesus brilliantly used the original idea of born again to simplify the concept. MATTHEW 11:13-14 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. And if ye will receive [it], this is Elias, which was for to .e. In the above text (which actually begins in verse 7), Jesus explained to the multitudes; John the Baptist was the born again manifestation (reincarnation) of the prophet Elijah; and no one freaked out at the notion! He later explained the same thing to his disciples in 17:10-13. However, in John 1:19-24 the Baptist denied he was the very prophet Jesus claimed he was! Then again no one instantly knows their previous incarnations; including John the Baptist. Also, he was being questioned by the same people (or type of people) who often tried to trick Jesus with questions (about heaven, repentance, etc.). Surprisingly, on many occasions Jesus professed to be the born again manifestation of Enoch [Genesis 5:18-24]. In the Book of Enoch (the very first Bible; much of the New Testament is based on), the prophet Enoch is often referred to as the Son of Man and he always spoke in parables. And you thought Jesus was being original! By claiming to be the Son of Man, Jesus inadvertently professed to be the reincarnation of the ancient prophet. And as it turns out, Enoch and Elijah had one thing in .mon; neither one died a physical death. They were each spirited off (to heaven?) under super natural circumstances [2Ki 2:11].
