Born Again (Regeneration - Indwelling of the Spirit)

God's Promise To Believers:
God Promised To Pour His Spirit Upon All Flesh:
Joel 2:28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:

Sinners Are Spiritually Helpless:
We Are Spiritually Helpless:
Rom 5:6 For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly./ Rom 8:6-7 / 1 Pet 1:2
Man Cannot Enter Into a New Relationship Without God's Help: John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. / Eph 2:4,5
God Makes Spiritually Dead People Alive: Rom 4:17 as it is written, "I have made you the father of many nations" --in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist. / Joel 2:28

Indwelling Of The Spirit Means New Life / Eternal Life:
We Must Receive The Holy Spirit To See The Kingdom (Born Again-New Birth):
John 3:3 Jesus answered and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.
New Birth: 1 Pet 3-4 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and into an inheritance than can never perish, spoil or fade - kept in heaven for you (NIV)
Eternal Life Is Sealed In You: Rom 8:11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. 2 Cor 5:5

The Holy Spirit Is Given By Faith:
The Holy Spirit (Eternal Life) Is Given By Faith Not By Works:
Gal 3:2 This is the only thing I want to find out from you: did you receive the Spirit by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith?
The Holy Spirit Is Given To All Who Believe: Rom 5:5 and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. 1 Cor 2:12 / 1 John 3:24 / 1 John 4:13
Jesus Promises The Holy Spirit (Living Waters) To Those Who Believe: Jn 7:38-39 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, "From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.' But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified. / Jn 6:35

Indwelling Of The Spirit Means New Relationsip With God:
He Has Become Our Father, We Are His Children (New Relationship):
Gal 4:6-7 Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, Abba! Father! Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.
Indwelling of The Holy Spirit Means God Dwells In Us: 1 Cor I 3:16 Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
Because The Holy Spirit Abides In Us Our Body Is Not Our Own : 1 Cor 6:19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? 1 Cor 6:20

The Holy Spirit Reveals God's Truths (Without Him We Cannot Understand):
Holy Spirit Guides In All Truth:
Jn 16:13 But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. 1 Cor 2:9-10 / Matt 16:15-17 Ephesians 6:17 / Rom 3:2 /John 14:17
No Truth Without The Spirit: 1 Cor 2:10 For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.

Those Without The Holy Spirit:
If You Do Not Have The Holy Spirit You Do Not Belong To God:
Rom 8:9 However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.
The Man Without The Spirit Cannot Understand Spiritual Things: 1 Cor 2:14 But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.
