In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld
his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
Jesus Christ was a man just like us. What a man can do, all
people can do. This means we may be born of God, when we give out of God into this
world. We can give out God's ideas, thinking God's thoughts, speak and read the word
of God and do God's actions. This is called being born of God, as opposed to being
born out of this world.
Jesus said in John's Gospel that we must be born again,
that is of God:
1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler
of the Jews: 2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that
thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest,
except God be with him. 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto
thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4 Nicodemus saith
unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his
mother's womb, and be born? 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except
a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is
spirit. 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. 8 The wind
bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell
whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
To be born from above, means that one receives God's ideas and
thoughts which is necessary in order to see the kingdom of God. One is then
unpredictable because one lives to do God's will and God leads one from one need to
9 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things
be? 10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not
these things? 11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify
that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. 12 If I have told you earthly things,
and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? 13 And no
man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man
which is in heaven. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so
must the Son of man be lifted up: 15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish,
but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten
Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world
through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that
believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the
only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into
the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light,
lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light,
that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. John 3:9-21
What comes from above is God and who gets up and down from the sky is man
who has put down his selfish life and instead live for the sake of their fellow
men. The ascent of the son of man to heaven when in silence and stillness spend
time with God. The descent of the Son of Man from heaven is the issue of God's ideas,
thoughts, words and actions. It is by faith that the Spirit can spend time with the
Father and live a life issue that one can have an eternal divine life.
The world can only deliver themselves from a war of extermination by humans who lay
down their selfish lives and living out the divine life.
