  • The dictionary lists regeneration as: recovery from decline; a transitive and intransitive verb TO RETURN FROM A STATE OF DECLINETO A REVITALISED STATE, or cause something to do this. Regeneration is the process by which God makes a person spiritually alive as a result of faith in Jesus Christ. It is a re-creation of the person from the fallen state in which we all came into the world. Regeneration becomes a must because, before salvation, a person is degenerate separated from God, in fact subject to the wrath of God.

  • “ All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” ( Revelation 13:8) Propitiation “ My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.” (1 John 2:2) Redemption “ But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.” (Romans 3:21-26) Repentance Positional Sanctification “ By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” ( Hebrews 10:10) “ Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people with His own blood, suffered outside the gate.” (Hebrews 13:12) Reconciliation “ Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.” (2 Corinthians 5:18-19)

    • 3. twentyfirstcenturyromanhighway.wordpress.com © Sabaoth 2013 GOD’S FULL SALVATION REGENERATION • God justifies us through propitiation by Christ Jesus and regenerates us in our spirit with His life by His Spirit. It involves: Redemption, Sanctification (positional 1 Pet. 1:2; 1 Cor. 6:11), justification, faith, repentance, forgiveness, baptism these are the processes of our reconciliation to God. TRANSFORMATION • Freedom from the dominion of indwelling sin. It involves: Freedom from Sin, Sanctification (mainly dispositional Roman 6:19,22), growth in life, transformation, building up and maturing. CONSUMMATION • Redemption of our corrupted body (Roman 8:23) and transfiguring into Christ’s glory (Phil. 3:21). This is the inheritance of God’s Kingdom and participation in Jesus’ Kingship.
    • 4. twentyfirstcenturyromanhighway.wordpress.com © Sabaoth 2013 WHAT IS REGENERATION? TO RECEIVE AN IMPARTED LIFE WHICH MAKES THE RETURN FROM A STATE OF DECLINE TO A REVITALISED STATE POSSIBLE. Regeneration means to be renewed, reformed, or reconstituted; to have a spiritual rebirth (be spiritually reborn) “Born Again”; to cause to be completely reformed or improved and to grow anew (a part to replace one hurt or lost).
    • 5. twentyfirstcenturyromanhighway.wordpress.com © Sabaoth 2013 WHAT IS REGENERATION? Regeneration is broadly made up of three parts; Propitiation (by God); Salvation (by Christ): and Repentance (by man).   Propitiation Points to what God has received from the death of Christ, whether or not a sinner trusts Christ. Salvation Focuses primarily on the blessing the one who trusts Christ receives. Repentance What sinner has to do (by faith) on his own part.
    • 6. twentyfirstcenturyromanhighway.wordpress.com © Sabaoth 2013 REGENERATION “Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” (John 3:5-8) “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” (John 1:12-13) “Among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.” (Ephesians 2:3) “Therefore, as through one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous. Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more.” (Romans 5:18-20). TO RETURN FROM A STATE OF DECLINETO A REVITALISED STATE
    • 7. twentyfirstcenturyromanhighway.wordpress.com © Sabaoth 2013 OUTCOMES OF REGENERATION Peace With God New Life Eternal Sonship “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1). “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit.” (Titus 3:5). “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17). “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” (John 1:12-13).  “For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:26).

COMPONENTS OF REGENERATION Justification (redemption applied) (Romans 3:28; 4:5; 5:1) Reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:18-19) Redemption (Romans 3:21-26) Baptism Acts 2:38 Imputation 2 Cor. 5:19-21; 1 Pet. 2:24 Forgiveness Mark 2.5; Luke 7.47-50
    • 9. twentyfirstcenturyromanhighway.wordpress.com © Sabaoth 2013 COMPONENTS OF REGENERATION God justifies us through propitiation by Christ Jesus and regenerates us in our spirit with His life by His Spirit. It involves: Redemption, Sanctification (positional 1 Pet. 1:2; 1 Cor. 6:11), justification, faith, repentance, forgiveness, baptism these are the processes of our reconciliation to God. Propitiation Propitiation is the work Jesus did on the cross to appease and satisfy God's wrath so He would be able to pardon sinners who trust in Christ. It is God’s way of making amends for our sins. This He does by a process in which the guilt or innocence is transferred from one person (Jesus) to another (man). The guilt or the bad actions of one person is attributed or imputed to another. So that when it comes to punishment, the person who is the substitute bears the brunt, and that the person substituted goes away free. This way God made reparations for our sins by transferring them to Christ’s account as He hung on the cross at Calvary. The absolute sinless life of Jesus Christ makes this transaction possible as His innocence is transferred to those who believe and follow Him. (2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 John 2:2; Isaiah 53:4-6; 1 John 5:6-7)
    • 10. twentyfirstcenturyromanhighway.wordpress.com © Sabaoth 2013 COMPONENTS OF REGENERATION Redemption Redemption is the English translation of the Greek word ‘agorazo’, meaning "to purchase in the marketplace." In ancient times, it often referred to the act of buying a slave. It means Jesus Christ, through his sacrificial death, purchased believers from the slavery of sin to set us free from that bondage. (John 3:3; Ezekiel 36:25-27; Romans 3:21-26; Ephesians 1:7-8; Psalm 111:8-10; Romans 8:1-4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 3:13-14; Titus 2:13-14; Zechariah 12:10; 1 John 5:6- 8)   Justification Justification is the “Act of God” by which He approves us based on His own standard of righteousness. This He can legally do without compromising His divine righteousness because of the finished redemptive work of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on the Cross at Calvary. This justification can only be obtained through the grace of God and not by our works. (Psalms. 49:7-8; Romans 3:10; 21- 22; 1:17; 10:3; John 1:12; Philippians 3:9)  
    • 11. twentyfirstcenturyromanhighway.wordpress.com © Sabaoth 2013 COMPONENTS OF REGENERATION There are two distinct aspects of justification:   Forgiveness This is God’s act of pardoning and releasing us from our mistakes or wrongdoings and actually ‘wiping them off the slate’. (Jeremiah 31:34; John 3:18; 5:24; Acts 10:43; 26:18; Hebrews 8:12; 10:17).   Imputation This is the application of the righteousness of Jesus Christ to us in our sinful state. (Romans 4:4-6; 5:1, 19; 8:1; 10:4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Philippians 3:8-9)
    • 12. twentyfirstcenturyromanhighway.wordpress.com © Sabaoth 2013 COMPONENTS OF REGENERATION Sanctification (Positional) Sanctification that is automatically made available to us (through an entirely work of God) as a result of justification; as a believer (at salvation) is justified, declared righteous in conformity to the image of Jesus Christ. “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the first-born among many brethren” (Romans 6:11-23; 8:8, 29; 10:1-4; Ephesians 2:1-4; Colossians 2:10-15; 3:1-4).   Sanctification (Experiential) Experiential sanctification is the process by which the Holy Spirit works in us (believer) to set us apart from sin; it is a progressive work aimed at spiritual maturity, a progressive work of separating us from the world. Quit opposite from what obtains in the world where maturity means independence from anyone; experiential sanctification is the process by which the Holy Spirit progressively teaches us to be TOTALLY AND ABSOLUTELY DEPENDENT ON GOD. (Romans 12:1-4; 16:19; 1Corinthians 6:12-13; 19-20; 7:23; 2 Corinthians 6:14-17; 7:1; Galatians 5:22-25; Philippians 2:15, 4:8; Colossians 2:6; 3:5-15; 1 Thessalonians 2:12, 4:1-7; 5:5, 22-23; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; 1 Timothy 6:11-12; Hebrews 12:1-4; James 1:24-27, 4:4; 1 Peter 2:11-12, 24).
    • 13. twentyfirstcenturyromanhighway.wordpress.com © Sabaoth 2013 COMPONENTS OF REGENERATION Faith Now faith is the substance (physical reality that can be touched and felt) of things hoped for (a chance that something desirable will happen or be possible), the evidence (something that gives a sign or proof of the existence or truth of something, or that helps somebody to come to a particular conclusion) of things not seen. We can also say that: Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses] (John 3:16,36; 5:24; 6:40; 8:24; 20:30,31; Acts 16:31; 10:43; 15:9; 13:39; Romans 1:16; 3:22-28; 4:3,16; 5:1,2; Ephesians 2:8)   Repentance At the point of salvation (just as in times like Philippians 2:12-13) repentance is the intellectual (mental) and spiritual perception; emotional change of feeling and volitional change of purpose that follows a sinful act. It should be accompanied by deep regret because of the sins committed in the past, and by determination with God’s help to avoid sin and live in holiness hereafter. (Matthew 3:2; 27:3; Luke 15:7, 10; Philippians 2:12-13; Isaiah 55:7; Jeremiah 4:1-2; Ezekiel 18:30-32; Daniel 9:13;)
    • 14. twentyfirstcenturyromanhighway.wordpress.com © Sabaoth 2013 COMPONENTS OF REGENERATION Baptism Baptism is the sacred act of being immersed in water, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; it is a very special moment on the journey of faith; a moment when God's presence and blessing meets us, as we make our personal commitment of faith in Jesus as Lord and Saviour of our life, being grafted into Him, and partaking of the benefits of the covenant of grace and our engagement to be totally His. (Luke 3:16; Matthew 3:13-17; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 3:21, 22; John 1:29-33; Matthew 28:19, 20; Mark 1:4, 5; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; Acts 8:35-38; Acts 16:31, 33; Romans 6:3-6; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Galatians 3:27; 1 Peter 3:21)   Reconciliation to God Reconciliation is the process by which we are brought from enmity with God to friendship with Him. A process through which God (right from creation) had provided for perceived blunders we will make along the way as we fulfil His eternal purpose; a plan to ultimately, bring us to His Glory. It should be noted that God is not reconciled to us, but we are reconciled to our Father in Heaven. (John 15:15; Romans 5:10; 2 Corinthians 5:18; Philippians 4:7; Colossians 1:20-21)
