    What does passing from death to life have to do with being born from above?

    And once born, should you feel God's presence everyday until death
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    There is only ONE new birth, but the sanctification process is messy.

    Jesus said,

    But what do you think?

    A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, ‘Son, go, work today in my vineyard.’ He answered and said,
    ‘I will not,’ but afterward he regretted it and went.

    Then he came to the second and said likewise. And he answered and said,
    ‘I go, sir,’ but he did not go.

    Which of the two did the will of his father?Matthew 21:28-31 NKJV

    "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just
    • to forgive us our sins and
    • to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9 NKJV :clap:

    A persons spiritual birth happens when they trust in Jesus The promised Messiah (from the Tanakh) for Eternal Life. They then become a child of God the spiritual birth.

    Now will they stay a child by remaining in sins grip or grow to an adult child of God by growing in their spiritual life.

    In being born from above one passes from death to life. And I'm not sure if one feels God's presence every day until death. Try making God feel your presence every day until death. It might help.

    I remember once I was in a severe disagreement with someone and a little bit of money was involved in it. I had heard time and again about people asking God for a sign of whatever or another. I helped settle the dispute by paying money I didn't think I owed. I prayed to God "this is my sign to you that this thing is settled".

    If we can ask God for a sign what's stopping us from offering Him a sign?

    I'm not speaking of a sign, but to me...in my thoughts on scriptures is His promise.

    What do you mean there is only ONE new birth? Where is that in scripture?
    Because if I'm dead in my trespasses and sin and I am made alive...as you say ["if I confess"] then are you saying I will never fall into sin and be dead in trespasses and sin, again"? What if I stopped walking in the light? Am I still alive from the dead?

    Please assure me with a scripture that I can be regenerated only "one" time...tks

    The two are similar. One might ask for a sign from God, while also asking to know God's presence. Another offers a sign to God while showing God their own presence.

    In the Matthew verses above, both were sons, so that relationship was established.

    The first one erred, but repented. That was Jesus' point. As long as we abide in Jesus, including repentance when necessary, we have nothing to fear. (And the Holy Spirit has been given to us to encourage that repentance!)

    There are other verses that say we can't be Born-Again again, but we can keep trading on the first time as long as we are inclined to do so.

    You can only be Born again once according to Heb 6:6.

    However any believer who claims they have no sin is a liar.

    1 Jn 1:8
    8 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.…

    We are completely forgiven but becoming more righteous.

    We can stray away but never so far that He cant bring us back.

    You lost me, and my intent...
    My thought is...if Jesus came that we may have life and
    have it more abundantly.
    Should we then feel His presence all the time? Please offer a scripture reference and your understanding of it.

    Hebrews 6;6 doesn't say that at all.....
    Are you referring to another passage?

    I'll read the context... Because it seems you may be reading more into it then which it represents. Even still, we should abide indeed!

    Read the Gospel of John but if you need a verse.

    Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.

    Heb 6:
    4For in the case of those who have once been enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have been made partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6and then have fallen away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance, since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame.
