John 3:6Wrench

BACK NEXT

The spawn of flesh are [just rotting, dying] meat, [worm food].
But children of [YAH's] Spirit are [indestructible, immortal] spirit[s].

Rebirth

Note: Humans can reproduce only human life.
The Holy Spirit gives new life from heaven.
A baby is just a body you can look at and touch, born physically from human parents.
But the being who takes shape inside is formed by something you can't see and touch:
the Spirit. A mortal human can become an eternally living spirit.
