Jesus Christ was conceived of a virgin by the Power of the Holy Spirit. Our Heavenly Father chose a virgin to have a clean channel that Christ would pass through into this world. This was a super natural conception. Our Heavenly Father formed the body of women, so that at conception and throughout the pregnancy, the fetusí blood does not mix with that of the mothers. Jesus therefore had pure, clean, incorruptible blood coursing through HIS veins.
Jesus therefore was fully human and fully GOD simultaneously. This had to occur that HE might be a proper atonement for the SINS of the world. HE was born to die for our SINS and raised from the grave on the third day according to the scriptures. HE was born to die that we who believe (or put our complete trust in HIM) might be born again or born from above (a heavenly birth). All of mankind, born into the world after the fall of Adam in the Garden of Eden, is born spiritually dead. Jesus said, unless one is born again (born of the Holy Spirit), he cannot see (know, behold, or understand) or enter (come into) the Kingdom of GOD or Heaven.
The following is what happens in the life of a person who has been truly born again:
The regeneration or the new birth is a process by which God the Holy Spirit ignites an explosion on the inside of an individual. The bomb (Holy Spirit) explodes on the inside of a person and destroys or subdues the old nature (sinful nature). The old nature is still in you, but now you have been given a new nature by God. All the things that once were pleasing to the person (i.e. R rated movies, pornography, fornication, drugs, alcohol, vile language, etc.) suddenly, become distasteful, disgusting, shameful, and regrettable. The heart is flooded with brand new desires.
The person develops a strong uncontrollable passion to know GOD intimately. The person develops a drive to read, study, and obey GODís Holy Scriptures. You were once blinded by the prince of this world (Satan), but now GOD the Father, GOD the Son, and GOD the Holy Spirit has opened your eyes to the Truth and you are set free. You come out of the world completely and separate yourself from living as the world lives. A fire is ignited in your belly to serve GOD in any way HE wants to use you for HIS purpose and glory. Your ears are now open to hear the inward voice of GOD, saying be of good cheer your SINS are forgiven; go and SIN no more.
The new man or woman is alive to GOD through Jesus Christ. He or She lives a LIFE which the world knows not of, a LIFE which is hidden with Christ in GOD. GOD is continually breathing, as it were, upon his SOUL; and his SOUL is breathing unto GOD. Grace is descending into his heart; and he continues to send prayer and praise to HEAVEN. GOD raises the SOUL from the DEATH of SIN to the LIFE of Righteousness. To be unregenerate is to be Unsaved, Un pardoned, without GOD, and without HOPE.
