The Ger becomes an Ezrach at Passover! Is it possible that THIS is the answer to “what does it mean to be “Born Again?” We all have our own religious and traditional ideas. But what is its scriptural basis? We know that it has to predate Nicodemus, since Yeshua (Jesus) rebuked Nicodemus for being a teacher of Israel and not understanding this second birth. Nicodemus, who was a later disciple of Yeshua and a Pharisee just like Paul, had great knowledge and understanding concerning the scriptures, so why do we treat him as though he could not understand a, supposedly, simple concept? Perhaps we have learned many lies and the answer is not as simple as we have been taught?
Is it possible that the scriptural basis of this new birth has roots in history that even predate Yehovah’s instructions given to Moses at Mount Sinai? Is it possible that the journey many people think they have already completed is a far more complex and life changing than most folks have ever imagined?
Please join me as we develop a solid foundation for our faith; and renew our minds to that good, and acceptable and perfect will of Yehovah. Only then we can worship the Creator in spirit and in truth.
In the first portion of this series we saw how a Gentile leaves the kingdom of his first birth and joins himself (and his family) to Yehovah and His other called-out men and becomes a Ger. Please read these 4 articles first.
The Ger Becomes An Ezrach
There is a process which every man must pass through on his journey from being a Ben Nekar (one born in the kingdom of his first birth) to becoming an Ezrach (one born into the kingdom of his second birth). Yehovah’s covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob always concerns two things; the seed and the land. Passover relates to both!
What does it mean to be Born Again? If we are born into some kingdom of the world the first time, what are we born into the second time? Yeshua rebuked Nicodemus for being a teacher of Israel and not knowing the scriptures; where is “Born Again” in the law and the Prophets, the words of Yehovah that never change and endure forever? You might be surprised!
Here is my Sabbath teaching on this subject as well.
2E10 Exodus 12.40-13 and Yasher 80.41-81.1
