John MacArthur's "Blueprint for Being Born Again"

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.

John 3:3-8 
King James Version

Those are Jesus' very own words about what we need to see the kingdom of God.

Spirit also led me to the wonderful John MacArthur video above, on what it means to be a born again Christian.

Finally, you get to know what it means to be one, how you are transformed from thereon, and the points of focus if you are to really love and worship God.

All of Jesus' ministry has always focused on our loving His Father.

I created this blog purposely to document my own findings and path, and the many treasures I discovered along the way. 

As John MacArthur says:

"Profession, without possession."

Listen to the video as pastor MacArthur explains things in his usual, clear, and unapologetic manner.

When you live by Scripture, you will be happily transformed, sitting at Jesus' feet, listening to Him with all your heart and being, absorbing all of His teachings, and eager to do His Will alone.

No other path can be more beautiful.

I don't know about you but it was my time to become born again on 6 September 2019. All my life had been preparation for that moment.

After which, I ended one blog, and created the one you're reading now.

God also led me to read the Bible -- His Book.

From which, I took down notes, and have many notebooks and index cards of my findings, which eventually led to my writing short fiction books on 24 November 2019.

It became my foundation for my books and all my thoughts and work now.

My 22 books on spiritual warfare -- written in a remarkable, intensive period of 36 days -- can all be now found on Amazon.

I don't know how I did it, I merely did it -- as prompted by the Holy Spirit each day.

That's what being born again did to me. 

If you choose to serve God, He will work with you in a way He had originally designed. 

May you seek God with all your heart, too, and let Him shower you with His Grace.

In this season of the end times, it is time to re-connect with God in a way He had always wanted to.

By ourselves we know nothing.

Only God makes us something.
