What future awaits a true born again?

What makes a true born again?

SPIRIT helped me scour Scripture, and here's what He led me to find:

Proverbs 19:20-21

King James Version

20 Hear counsel, 

and receive instruction, 

that thou mayest 

be wise in thy latter end.

21 There are many devices in a man's heart; 

nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, 

that shall stand.

Jeremiah 29:11-12

King James Version

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, 

saith the Lord, 

thoughts of peace, and not of evil, 

to give you an expected end.

12 Then shall ye call upon me, 

and ye shall go and pray unto me, 

and I will hearken unto you.

Matthew 24:39-42

King James Version

39 And knew not until the flood came, 

and took them all away; 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40 Then shall two be in the field; 

the one shall be taken, and the other left.

41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; 

the one shall be taken, and the other left.

42 Watch therefore: 

for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Mark 16:16

King James Version

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; 

but he that believeth not shall be damned.

John 3:3-7

King James Version

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.

John 3:16

King James Version

16 For God so loved the world, 

that he gave his only begotten Son, 

that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, 

but have everlasting life.

John 14:2-4

King James Version

2 In my Father's house are many mansions:

 if it were not so, I would have told you.

I go to prepare a place for you.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, 

I will come again, 

and receive you unto myself; 

that where I am, there ye may be also.

4 And whither I go ye know, 

and the way ye know.

Romans 8:17

King James Version

17 And if children, 

then heirs; 

heirs of God, 

and joint-heirs with Christ; 

if so be that we suffer with him, 

that we may be also glorified together.

Romans 8:18

King James Version

18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time 

are not worthy to be compared 

with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Romans 8:21-23

King James Version

21 Because the creature itself also 

shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption 

into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth 

and travaileth in pain together until now.

23 And not only they, 

but ourselves also, 

which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, 

even we ourselves groan within ourselves, 

waiting for the adoption, 

to wit, the redemption of our body.

Romans 8:28-30

King James Version

28 And we know that all things work together for good 

to them that love God, 

to them who are the called according to his purpose.

29 For whom he did foreknow, 

he also did predestinate 

to be conformed to the image of his Son, 

that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, 

them he also called: 

and whom he called,  them he also justified: 

and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

Romans 8:32-33

King James Version

32 He that spared not his own Son, 

but delivered him up for us all, 

how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? 

It is God that justifieth.

Romans 8:34

King James Version

34 Who is he that condemneth? 

It is Christ that died, 

yea rather, that is risen again, 

who is even at the right hand of God, 

who also maketh intercession for us.

Romans 8:35-39

King James Version

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? 

shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, 

or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

36 As it is written, 

For thy sake we are killed all the day long; 

we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors 

through him that loved us.

38 For I am persuaded, 

that neither death, nor life, 

nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, 

nor things present, nor things to come,

39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, 

shall be able to separate us from the love of God, 

which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

1 Corinthians 15:51-54

King James Version

51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; 

We shall not all sleep, 

but we shall all be changed,

52 In a moment, 

in the twinkling of an eye, 

at the last trump: 

for the trumpet shall sound, 

and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, 

and we shall be changed.

53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, 

and this mortal must put on immortality.

54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, 

and this mortal shall have put on immortality, 

then shall be brought to pass 

the saying that is written, 

Death is swallowed up in victory.

2 Corinthians 4:16-17

King James Version

16 For which cause we faint not; 

but though our outward man perish, 

yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

17 For our light affliction, 

which is but for a moment, 

worketh for us a far more exceeding 

and eternal weight of glory;

Philippians 1:6

King James Version

6 Being confident of this very thing, 

that he which hath begun a good work in you 

will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

Philippians 3:20-21

King James Version

20 For our conversation is in heaven; 

from whence also we look for the Saviour, 

the Lord Jesus Christ:

21 Who shall change our vile body, 

that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, 

according to the working whereby he is able 

even to subdue all things unto himself.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

King James Version

16 For the Lord himself 

shall descend from heaven 

with a shout, 

with the voice of the archangel, 

and with the trump of God: 

and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17 Then we which are alive and remain 

shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, 

to meet the Lord in the air: 

and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 5:9

King James Version

9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, 

but to obtain salvation 

by our Lord Jesus Christ,

James 4:14-15

King James Version

14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. 

For what is your life? 

It is even a vapour, 

that appeareth for a little time, 

and then vanisheth away.

15 For that ye ought to say, 

If the Lord will, 

we shall live, 

and do this, 

or that.

1 Peter 1:3-5

King James Version

3 Blessed be the God 

and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 

which according to his abundant mercy 

hath begotten us again unto a lively hope 

by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

4 To an inheritance incorruptible, 

and undefiled, 

and that fadeth not away, 

reserved in heaven for you,

5 Who are kept by the power of God 

through faith unto salvation 

ready to be revealed in the last time.

1 John 5:4

King James Version

4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: 

and this is the victory that overcometh the world, 

even our faith.
