Jesus told Nicodemus, you must be born-again, but Nicodemus did not understand and replied, "must I enter into my mothers womb and be born"? This birth is of the spirit and not the flesh, and this book highlights the reason and necessity for this spiritual rebirth and outlines the stages of this birth process using the natural process of conception, birth, infancy, childhood, youth and maturity. The practical or natural things are shadows or parables pointing to the spiritual world. Therefore the author uses scriptural references from the bible to support the fact that to be spiritually born-again suggest the process of conception, birth and growth as in the practical sense. Pregnancy follows process and stages, Infancy and Childhood follows process and stages, Youth follows process and stages, Maturity follows process and stages. The spiritual process and stages are not readily understood and there is often no practical parental guidance to usher the spiritual babe through the process into maturity. This book should help to recognise the stages, and sheds light on the level of understanding expected in a very practical way. The author shows that as born-again Christians we have a dual citizenship and references the natural process of birth registration and acquiring a passport to show citizenship as a shadow of the spiritual citizenship of the Kingdom of Heaven.
