1. Being Born Again.
I am not looking for abstract meanings like turning to God. Believing in Jesus etc.
What is the exact act of Being Born again.
2. Through Jesus.
I hear many say you must go "Through" Jesus. What is the exact act of going Through Jesus
This is just an attempt to answer this, though many others can answer much better than I can.
1. You repented of your sins meaning you turned away from them. You asked Jesus to be your savior, and you put your trust in him. You have been baptized allowing the Holy Spirit to guide you, and help you turn from your sins.
It is hard to explain to someone who has not experienced it. It has happened to me, and I have seen it happen to others. Your personality begins to change for the better. There were things you use to love to do that you knew were wrong. Then after asking God into your heart, you get little thoughts, nudges, and/or feelings that convict you about what you are doing that are wrong. Eventually you get to the point where you do not want to do the bad things you use to do before. Sometimes it happens instantly, and sometimes the change takes place over a long period of time.
Being born again is being renewed in your mind and spirit. It is a cleansing process God takes you through.
2. Technically, you can't go through him. You need to accept Jesus as your lord and savior, and accept his free gift of salvation. It basically means that the only way to heaven is by accepting his gift of salvation. Jesus is the only one who can wash our sins away, so we can enter into the presence of God the Father.
Being Born, is the process of order to the flesh in a particular way so that it can be useful. This usefulness gives us a similitude of Life....But it is not Life because it is still imperfect.
So we see the two combining into One with its Order.. or government as seen in the body uniting it members under one Head. Now the body has what is called Life because of this unity...But because of the imperfection of it... It dies the death...which proves it was not Life in the first place, but Death.
Being Born again is the same process.
Where the two becomes One except, the unity which occurs is perfect because Death has been put into It place where it is most useful...Thus it becomes impossible for it to reign over the Unity Which in itself is Life....
Being Born again is not an act in itself for all actions are limited to the body and it without power to bring about the unity required....
It is a realization of the mind...And once the mind see this Unity it will of its own self Strive to after it to completion..
The completion comes not by actions...but by the same way it occurs initially, by realisation.
So those who boast about being born again, they Strive against what they call the world because all they have to go by is Actions of the body...
So infact what they do is condemn that which was established for their Life but instead they see it as death forever blinding themselves from seeing that which was meant For their Life.
So they remain Carnally minded and in the came death the seek to eliminate.
for in this world you would see two men walking together both doing the same things (Actions) yet One belongs to Life and the other belongs to death.
The one that belongs to Life is Born again because He knows all actions are His fruitless an serve the purposes of death unless it is Tried by His realisation of Life.
And also All actions Are meant for and will be Used Unto Life...but unless realisation comes to that one, It will be death unto himself.
Being a former Christian, Deborah, what did it mean to you?
Additionally, people are supposed to pray to God thru Jesus, and end every prayer with something like, "In Jesus Name, Amen."
I'm detecting a trick question here and Deborah is just waiting to catch us out. I'm not playing.
To first be born according to the order of water, that is the water of the womb, to be a human. That birth results and is complete in death, unless that same human is born into Life --which swallows up the death and all its parts,.
As blood is life to the body, the Spirit is life to the whole. Spirit gives life to spirit, then to mind and finally the body itself. When the spirit in a human comes to Life, it overpowers death and fulfills the purpose of the imperfection, the corrupt: to be made incorruptible; to be made perfect.
Only then can anyone enter the kingdom of Eternal Life.
Born again is having a turning point in the life; as if one is one is born on that day; satrted a new life

There is no option to the Christian life, but that of carrying the cross. Jesus said: 'If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.' Matt 16:24. Paul said, 'I am crucified...
