To be born of God is to be born again and again; to be reborn again or born two times. “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.” (Jn 1:12)
In John 3 verse 3 Jesus said “unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” In verse 5 He said “unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.” The key operating words in what Jesus said are “see” and “enter” the spiritual kingdom of God.
In verse 6 He also said “that which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” It means to be able to see and enter the kingdom of God one must be transformed from the physical to the spiritual realm.
The transforming agent is a miniaturized image of God. Jesus is the express image of God. The image of God planted in man can be described as His seed, an incorruptible seed or a Hypostatic Chip.
When a person is born of blood, the will of the flesh and the will of man that is natural birth with eternal death sentence if the person dies in that state.
When one is born again one receives the ability to see the kingdom of God through the implantation of a Hypostatic Chip. This state does not automatically guarantee eternal life. Anyone who dies in this state cannot make it to heaven. “But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified” (1 Cor 9:27).
To participate in church rapture one must be born of water and the Spirit. This is a state of inseparable union between the implanted Hypostatic Chip and the invisible part of man, the inward personality comprising of spirit and soul. Union between the two is attained through fusion of the implanted Hypostatic Chip with the resident spirit and soul of man. The person becomes a son of God with eternal life.
Transformation is the work of the Holy Spirit using what is embedded in the Hypostatic Chip to transform the inward personality to a son of God. Mind renewal is the key to growth in grace from babyhood to maturity in Christ Jesus. “My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you. (Gal 4:19) Hypostatic Chips are brethren of Jesus.
The determination of formation of Christ in any person is at the point of death or church rapture, whichever occurs first. It is at this point that Hypostatic Chips become children or sons of men just as Jesus is the Son of Man and qualify to inherit the earth eternally. “The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’S; but the earth He has given to the children of men.” (Ps 115:16) Hypostatic Chips as sons of God are pure spirit beings who cannot inherit the earth without earthen vessels.
The human body acquired through natural birth has been judged. “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.” (1 Co 15:50) A new body comprising flesh and bones will be fashioned on the day of church rapture and given to resurrected dead saints as well as living saints before being lifted up in the air to meet the Lord in the atmospheric heaven to remain with Him forever. This is eternal life.
Many Christians are born again with the capacity to see the kingdom of God but are not growing in grace to qualify for rapture as dead or living saints. The lamentations of Jesus regarding six of the seven churches of the Book of Revelation attest to this tragic situation. The major cause of this state of affair can be traced to three weird doctrines prevailing in today’s churches.
- Doctrine of the Nicolaitans;
- Doctrine of Balaam; &
- Doctrine of Jezebel
To be born again is good and very essential but not enough to ensure attainment of eternal life. To treat ability to see the kingdom of God as eternal salvation of soul is dangerous. “That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” (Tit 3:7) One must be watered with the Word of God in the power of the Holy Spirit to enter the kingdom of God.
Eternal life is a hope and a promise attainable by those who believe in the Son of God and choose to grow in grace to maturity to the end. It doesn’t happen by chance. “Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” (Phil 2:12 NKJV) Jude verse 20 says: “But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.”
There is a minimum level of growth in grace required to attain eternal life in Christ Jesus. “And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” (Eph 4:11-13 NKJV)
