Jesus Christ the Fiery Serpent

Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent's root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.

JOHN {3:3} 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. {3:4} Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second timeinto his mother’s womb, and be born?

AM I BORN AGAIN
Only begotten Son Of God

Genesis {41:32} And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice; [it is] because the thing [is] established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass. 1.Begotten first Spiritual, and then the 2.Flesh is given a new Spiritual body at the rapture. The two parts of becoming "BORN AGAIN".

I Corinthians {15:50} Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.


John {3:8} 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.

( REALITY CHECK ) Are you like the wind, are you born of the Spirit, where you can be heard but not seen. Or are you Flesh and blood AND UNABLE TO INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD, UNTIL THE BEGOTTEN SPIRIT IN YOU CAUSES YOU TO BE "BORN AGAIN", at your rebirth.


Jesus talked with Nicodemus, He said, “‘I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.’ ‘How can a man be born when he is old?’ Nicodemus asked. ‘Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb to be born!’ Jesus answered, ‘I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, “You must be born again”’ (John 3:3-7). The phrase "born again" literally means "born from above." Nicodemus had a real need. He needed a change of his heart—a spiritual transformation. New birth, being born again, is an act of God whereby eternal life is imparted to the person who believes (2 Corinthians 5:17; Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 1:3; 1 John 2:29; 3:9; 4:7; 5:1-4, 18). John 1:12, 13 indicates that being "born again" also carries the idea of "becoming children of God" through trust in the name of Jesus Christ. The question logically comes, "Why does a person need to be born again?" The apostle Paul in Ephesians 2:1 says, "And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins" (NKJV). To the Romans he wrote, "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). Sinners are spiritually “dead”; when they receive spiritual life through faith in Christ, the Bible likens it to a rebirth. Only those who are born again have their sins forgiven and have a relationship with God. How does that come to be? Ephesians 2:8-9 states, "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast." When one is saved, he/she has been born again, spiritually renewed, and is now a child of God by right of new birth. Trusting in Jesus Christ, the One who paid the penalty of sin when He died on the cross, is the means to be "born again. "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation: the old has gone, the new has come!" (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Acts{2:38} Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

I Peter {2:21} For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

John {1:33} And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.

Luke {9:1} Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. {9:2} And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.

The Word Gospel is an old English word meaning goverment.

Kingdom: is also an old English word meaning goverment.

II Peter {1:4} Where by are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

I John {3:1} Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God:therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. {3:2} Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

I John {3:9} Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

Philippians {3:20} For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: {3:21} Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

Revelation {1:14} His head and [his] hairs [were] white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes [were] as a flame of fire; {1:15} And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. {1:16} And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance [was] as the sun shineth in his strength.

Colossians {1:18} And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; { BORN AGAIN} that in all [things] he might have the preeminence.

Corinthians {12:13} For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether [we be] Jews or Gentiles, whether [we be] bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

Galatians {4:26} But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.

Hebrews {12:22} But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, {12:23} To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

Ephesians {4:14} That we [henceforth] be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, [and] cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; {4:15} But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, [even] Christ:

I Peter {1:22} Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, [see that ye] love one another with a pure heart fervently: {1:23} Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. ( Not of the sperm of man, but of the SPIRIT )

Those called now have been begotten by both “corruptible” seed (human sperm), which led to a physical birth, and “incorruptible” seed (the Holy Spirit), which will lead to a spiritual birth if one continues to grow in the womb.

I Peter {2:1} Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, {2:2} As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

( BORN AGAIN )

Isaiah {26:16} LORD, in trouble have they visited thee, they poured out a prayer [when] thy chastening [was] upon them. {26:17} Like as a woman with child, [that] draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, [and] crieth out in her pangs; so have we been in thy sight, O LORD. {26:18} We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; ((John 3:8)) we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.

Isaiah {26:19} Thy dead [men] shall live, [together with] my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew [is as] the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead. {26:20} Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. {26:21} For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.


Consider. All through the Bible, pregnancy is depicted by the expression “with child,” not “with fetus” or “with embryo.” (Abortionists, take note!) This sets up our discussion of the Greek word gennao (the word Christ used when speaking to Nicodemus). Gennao can be translated either as “to beget” or “to be born.” Both are technically correct. We will learn why. Let’s examine several different Greek-English dictionaries (lexicons) definitions: Strong’s: “gennao: to procreate (prop. of the father, but by extension of the mother); fig. to regenerate: — bear, beget, be born, bring forth, conceive, be delivered of, gender, make, spring.” George Ricker Berry’s: “gennao: to beget, give birth to, produce, effect; pass., to be begotten, born.” Young’s: “gennao: to beget, bring forth.”

Liddell and Scott’s: “gennao: to beget, of the father; to bear, bring forth, of the mother; II, to generate, produce.” (Webster’s defines generate: “to beget;procreate.”) Thayer’s: “gennao: 1. properly: of men begetting children. Matt. 1:1-16;Acts 7:8, 29; foll. by ek with gen. of the mother, Matt. 1:3, 5, 6; more rarelyof women giving birth to children. Luke 1:13, 57; 23:29; John. 16:21, etc. 2. a. univ. to engender, cause to arise, excite…d. peculiarly in the Gospel and 1st Ep. of John, of God conferring upon men the nature and disposition of His sons, imparting to them spiritual life i.e. by His own holy power, prompting and persuading souls to put faith in Christ and live a new life consecrated to Himself.”

Eleven different Greek-English lexicons show that the word gennao can either refer to begettal by the father (begotten) or birth by the mother (born). We checked five more, not on this list, and found the same definition. Gennao can either be translated “born” or “begotten,” depending on context. Gennao is actually found 97 times in the New Testament. Here is a breakdown of how it is variously translated: begat, 49; be born, 39; bear, 2; gender, 2; bring forth, 1; be delivered, 1; is born, 1; been born, 1; was born, 1. It has been said that the English language is the best language for an author to use because it has an extremely large number of words, which carry very subtle differences in meaning and nuance of meaning. The vast majority of people read the Bible in English. It is our responsibility to primarily make its meaning clear in this language, before translating to others.

While the Greeks had one word that encompassed the entire process from begettal to birth, English carries two different words. One, begettal, starts the process—another, born, depicts its completion. It is natural for Englishspeaking people to think of conception and begettal as having happened, without yet having a birth. This would be foreign to a Greek-speaking person of 2,000 years ago. He would think of begettal as the primary meaning, with the entire rest of the process, that culminated in the birth, as the secondary meaning. Those who speak English talk of one’s birthdate as when he separated from the womb. This would carry a different meaning for one who spoke Greek, because he would see the birth as part of a nine-month process from begettal, but would still have only the word gennao to represent all of the process.

Defining “Beget”

It would be helpful to briefly explain the English verb “beget,” or its adjective form, “begotten.” Webster’s Dictionary definition of beget is: “1: to procreate, as the father: sire. 2: Cause.” Above, I quoted the definition from the New English Dictionary of Historical Principles: “begetting, the action or process of generating or producing…”

The Roman Catholic church believes that their church is the kingdom of God. The Protestants have generally accepted their assumption, but believed that the kingdom is primarily Protestantism. Others believe that the kingdom is something established “in men’s hearts.” All of these ideas reinforce the assumption that one can be “born again” in this life—and, therefore, “enter into” the kingdom now. Most of these problems have arisen because of improper translation of verses in which “born” should have been rendered“begotten.” How can your boby be born again, and be in the Kingdom of God, in the church?. REMEMBER: I Corinthians {15:50} Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

The following verses should be translated begotten, not born:

NT:1080 gennao (ghen-nah'-o);from a variation of NT:1085; to procreate (properly, of the father, but by extension of the mother); figuratively, to regenerate:KJV - bear, beget, be born, bring forth, conceive, be delivered of, gender, make, spring

John {1:13} Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

I John {2:29} If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.

I John {4:7} Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

I John {5:1} Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

I John {5:4} For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, [even] our faith.

Here are some examples of where gennao is correctly translated in the King James Version.

I Corinthians 4:15 states, “For though you have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have you not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten youthrough the gospel.”

Hebrews 1:5 also contains another correctly rendered passage using gennao: “For unto which of the angels said he at any time, You are My Son, this day have I begotten you? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to Me a Son?”

The Resurrection—Christ’s Second Birth

Romans 1:3-4 states of Christ, “Concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.”

Most have heard that Christ was the Son of God, but He was only “declared to be” the Son of God, in the fullest sense, “by the resurrection from the dead.” Certainly He was already the begotten Son of God prior to His birth into the kingdom at the time of His Resurrection. But He was only fully “declared to be Son of God” at the resurrection—after He was born! Grasp this!

Romans 1 shows that Christ was physically born of Mary, descending from David “according to the flesh,” and spiritually born a Son of God “according to the Spirit…by the resurrection of the dead.” Plainly, Christ was born twice, once of Mary, and the second time as the “firstborn from the dead.” By returning to Romans 8, we will better understand why. Recall what we learned about Christ’s second birth, and how other sons follow Him: “For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren” (vs. 29).

The birth of a firstborn son does not preclude the birth of additional sons (and daughters) to the same family. I have two sons—only one could be firstborn— and am myself a firstborn son, having a younger brother. My father was a secondborn son, having an elder brother and so on. This should make the point clear. Christ is merely the first born again Son of God. “Many brethren” (all true Christians) will join Him at His Return. This absolutely astonishing understanding is known to only the few called today (John 6:44, 65).

To Inherit “ALL THINGS”

The book of Hebrews reveals God’s awesome purpose with crystal clarity. The context begins in Chapter 1. The picture that unfolds is truly awesome! Examine the introduction to Hebrews: “God, who at sundry times and in diverse manners spoke in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds…For unto which of the angels said He at any time, You are My Son, this day have I begotten you?” (vs. 1-2, 5).

The Whole Creation Groans Waiting

Before continuing, consider an important verse about another related aspect of salvation few understand. We have seen that Christians await a truly awesome salvation. But the whole creation also intensely awaits the appearance of many new Sons to be added to God’s Family. Carefully read the following: “For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God; for the creation [all things in the known universe] was subjected to futility, not of its own will but by the will of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and obtain the glorious liberty of the children of God.

Romans {8:19} For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. {8:20} For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected [the same] in hope, {8:21} Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. {8:22} For we knowthat the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. {8:23} And not only [they,] but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, [to wit,] the redemption of our body.

All future “children of God” will liberate a creation now in bondage. A decayed and wounded Earth, moon and stars will soon be renewed and returned to a state of beauty, harmony and tranquility under the leadership of Christ and God’s other children. This is part of your calling.

Continuing in Hebrews 2, notice that Christ “is not ashamed to call them brethren [the other many sons—US]” (vs. 11). Truly, the begotten Christian has been called to “glory” and to be one of “many sons.” Christ’s suffering and sacrifice allow Him to be the “Captain of their salvation”—and potentially yours. What an incredible future for those whom Christ “calls…brethren.” Notice again: “For both He that sanctifies [Christ] and they who are sanctified [begotten Christians] are all of one: for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brethren” (vs. 11). There will be no difference between Christ and His younger brothers and sisters, except that He will have greater authority. Do you see what is described here? The Christian goal is to be born into the kingdom of God—to become a spirit being ruling with Christ. What could be more wonderful—more glorious—to look forward to?

John {17:17} Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
