In my opinion, the answers to the questions about "birth from above" Bible's topic are the most important in the world. Because it's a matter of eternal life and it's a matter of acquiring the Holy Spirit = the matter of acquiring the Spirit of God = the matter of acquiring the Spirit of Christ = the matter of acquiring Christ = the matter of acquiring Emmanuel = the matter of acquiring the Triune God = the matter of acquiring the Trinity.
What do I see in the Bible about this?
There is a biblical and very brief formula: “Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God." Simple and universal!
Why such a formula is more correct than the generally accepted tradition: "Repented = born again"?
Because it corresponds 100% to what Christ taught about the birth of Above in John 3: 1-21. We have the original source of the Birth from Above Doctrine - The Christ Himself!
I propose for all in the Birth from Above Doctrine let’s stop to be, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to our own way in a study of a Birth from Above Doctrine - then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming according to the elements of the world, according to the philosophies, according to human traditions, the cunning art of seduction, not according to The Christ.
I suggest that you take a great interest in the Birth from Above Doctrine directly from Christ - "we know that you are a teacher who came from God" (John 3: 2). His doctrine is the most powerful Doctrine skeleton for the Body of Christ!
What did I see in the teaching of Christ about Birth from Above Doctrine?
1. Born from above is not the soul, or the body, or combination of the two, - it is our spirit born from above, New Born Spirit! The new spirit who dwells in us from the birth moment is born from the SPIRIT,- John3:6
2. The birth of a new Spirit in human occurs through faith in the fact that Jesus is the Christ.
But there is a problem. The meaning of His Name is not always revealed before believing in His Name.
Let's try to discover it better.
1. God gave us His Son for the purpose that His mission would be accomplished. The name "Christ" bears an immensely important meaning. And the meaning of His name is the Savior of the world. Christ = the Savior of the world. God loved the whole world, -Jn3: 14, 15, 16. On the Cross, the salvation of the human race was accomplished.
2. Whoever believes in His Name (Christ = the Savior of the world), this one accepts Christ.
3. Inn that one person, Christ by His Spirit makes the birth from Above, He creates new creation- the new spirit (John 3: 18, John 3: 6)
Who does NOT NEED it?
Those who has no need of Christ in, who doesn’t go to the Light, i.e. Those who do not recognize themselves as 100% sinner, i.e. they are not Repentant. This Light enlightens everyone, without exception, a person who comes to the world (John 3: 19, 20). It is also appropriate to mention here about John chapter 1.
To whom is it NECESSARY?
To a repentant, i.e. to those who recognized themselves as 100% sinner, i.e. Penitential, i.e. those who go to the Light, and do not run away from Him, that is, those who need Christ (John. 3:21).
To this powerful skeleton (the Teaching of Christ on Birth from Above Doctrine in John3: 1-21), now it is very easy to increment the powerful muscles of the doctrine of the birth from above on the basis of Christ and the Apostles:
1. The Center of Revelation about God becomes the Truth, that He is our Father,- 1John, chapter 2 , and 3.
A father does not exist without children. Children are not without birth. John, chapter 1; Rome.8; 1John, chapter 2, and 3.
2. It is revealed that Christ stands at the door of every human who comes into the world and knocks to their heart. He is waiting to be received.
It is up to everyone to accept Him or not to accept Him,- John1; Revelation 3:20.
And to those who receive Him, He enters to them.
By entering, He commits the birth of the spirit by His Spirit (John 3: 5,6, John 1, Rom. 8.)
Need to mention more about John3:5: “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit.” Water here means Word of God. “For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.” (1Peter1:23). Jesus associates Himself with Word of God and source of water:
“On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, "Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him." John7:37,38.
“The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life. John 6:63.
“I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice, he judges and makes war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God”. Rev.19:11.
Also, you can just work with references for verification by yourself: John 4:10-24; 1Cor10:4; Isaiah 55:10,11;
3. It is revealed that we are saved through this resurrection by Him (Eph. 2)
The question arises: "How can we receive Him?"
Believe in His Name! (John3: 18; 1John 5: 1.)
By this faith, we open the door to Him, and He enters to make a birth from Above.
What is hidden in His Name?
Christ = the Savior of the world. John3: 16.17; In4: 25, In4: 42; In1: 29; 2Cor5: 19
The immediate task of the Church, which is the pillar and affirmation of Truth, is to examine and inform the people of what precious meaning is borne by His Name.
Through His Name, the Truth is revealed that He is the Savior of the world, and in fact the Savior of every soul who has a breath in his nostrils.
Is this fact enough to have eternal life with God after death?
To have a life with God after death, one must become His child = born again.
How to be in the number of His children = born again?
To believe that He saved all those who have breathing in their nostrils, and if all of them, then, without a reason, and you, dear friend.
BY THIS FAITH YOU OPEN DOOR FOR HIM, HE ENTERS, MAKES BIRTH OF ABOVE, AND GIVES POWER TO BE A CHILD OF GOD.
Some time ago I did not focus on the fullness of the Name of our Savior. After the visit of one FB group, another important aspect of His Name was clarified. Yeshua = Jesus = Savior of the soul / souls from their sins. Sin traumatizes the soul. And now I see better that formula of birth from above: Anyone who believes that Yeshua (the Savior of the Souls of His people from their sins) is Christ (the Savior of the world from the wages of sin) is born of God!!! May His Name be exalted above all names!!! Let every knee bow down before His Name!!!!
Two aspects of salvation are revealed. The Spirit is saved by a single offering through our faith. The soul continues until the moment of death
of the body to need the Savior from sins, she groans from them for release (Rom. 8: 19-21), and with fear and trembling we perform the salvation of our soul from sins with the help of the Savior of our souls (Phil.2 : 12-13). Sin traumatizes our souls, so we run to the Savior.

The spook's soul is a mold of the soul of each of us
After reading your article on being born again, I question the fact that you are born from again.
You call the \"born again through repentace\" method - a \"generally accepted tradition.\" When infact Jesus Himself taught the the first thing before anything is \"repent ye, and believe...\" Mark 1:15. John the Baptist, preparing the path for Jesus, taught repentace as the number one step. Matthew 3:1-2.
When Apostle Peter was preaching, the people asked \"men and bretheren, what shall we do?\" And Peter said...have faith in Christ, believe in His name and you will receive the gift of the Holy Ghost! Is that...really what he said? Well, no. Peter said what Christ commended him to say before He departed from this earth. In Luke 24:46-47 it is written \"And (Jesus) said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that REPENTANCE and remission of sins should be preached in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.\"
And so Peter answered the crowd \"Repent! And be baptized EVERY ONE OF YOU in the name of Jesus Christ...\" Acts 2:37-38
Is believing in Jesus, enough to be born again? James writes \"the devils also believe and tremble.\" James 2:19. Jesus came and died for our sins so that we may be saved. By His grace we are saved. Jesus offers us eternal life, but since every person born physically is a sinner, that person needs to realize one day that only at the cross, on his knees, with a repentant heart he can recieve this gift, be born again and live by faith in the name of Jesus Christ.
