Nothing in Christianity Works Properly
Without a Knowledge of the Birthing!
By Warren Litzman
When Jesus said to Nicodemus, “You must be born again,” it was the beginning of the
fulfillment of Ephesians 1:4. Before the foundation of the earth was laid, God had
determined that all humans would never be completed humans until they were put in
Christ (Col. 2:10). Throughout the entire Old Testament never a word was said about
humans being in Christ. That time would come when God raised up the Apostle Paul.
He would be the first to know the in Christ truth and he would give it to everyone
Yet Jesus was the first to mention it. John, in his gospel, is the only one to record
what Jesus said, but when Nicodemus asked how humans would be rebirthed, Christ did
not answer him. This was because Paul alone would be raised up to deliver such an
answer in the final gospel. The essence of the statement is you must be born-again
in order for Christ to be in you. The birthing is what placed Christ in the human
believer and at the same time the human believer was placed in Christ.
While this event of the new birthing was announced by Jesus of Nazareth, it could
not take place until the Holy Spirit came on the day of Pentecost. All believers
on the day of Pentecost were by the coming of the Holy Spirit, baptized or placed
in Christ and this was the prime mission of the Holy Spirit (I Cor. 12:13). The part
of receiving the Holy Spirit and the speaking in tongues was a fulfillment of prophecy
(Joel 2:28) and was important to Israel, as the earthly kingdom was still being offered
The outer signs of the miraculous events on that first day of Pentecost,
coming after the death of Christ on the cross, were a continuation of signs and wonders
given by God to open Israel’s eyes to the need of the kingdom of God on earth and
the acceptance of their Messiah. Such outer signs are not needed in grace because
there is no need to prove the validity of God’s power or Christ being real for He
now lives in the knowing believer. But the coming of the Holy Spirit was absolutely
critical to the grace believers and the final gospel, because as I Corinthians 12:13
plainly says that by one Spirit, the Holy Spirit, every believer is placed into one
body, Christ (I Cor. 12:12).
Today with the Apostle Paul’s revelation of the final gospel, received directly from
Christ, a believer being placed in one body is simply effecting the birthing. Another
important thing Jesus said to Nicodemus when He announced the birthing was that he
could not see the kingdom or enter the kingdom unless he was born again. When Jesus
said this, the earthly kingdom was still being offered, but the truth of it applies
to the final gospel also. There is a kingdom for the born-again and the kingdom is
Christ himself. At salvation, all believers are translated into Christ or birthed
into Him (Col. 1:13). There are many unbelievable truths connected with the birthing
and few believers really understand it all. Yet many are coming to its knowledge.
Nothing in Christianity works properly without a knowledge of the birthing. Coming
to an understanding of the birthing is the purpose of Paul’s final gospel.
