Nicodemus a ruler of the Jews…didn’t understand the new birth. Nicodemus did understand the Hebrew’s great deliverance out of Egypt, through the Red Sea….into Canaan.
When God’s deliverance of a complete nation going through the parted waters of the Red Sea is recognized…the mighty hand of the Spirit of God is also recognized in unlimited power.
In contrast to God’s miracle of the Hebrews being delivered out of Egypt…the hand of God can also be seen as a miracle deliverance from the bondage of sin.
The new birth is a very deliverance from the bondage of sin. The new birth is a Spiritual operation of the hand of God that takes people out of sin and puts them into God’s holiness.
Just like God took 600,000 people out of Egypt and put them into Canaan.
The new birth is still not understood today. Many still do not realize the operation of the Spirit of God that “delivers” man from sin. The new birth allows man to receive a new nature that is divine. The new birth is a moral regeneration. The new birth is a great miracle from God likened to the miracle of the Red Sea being parted and a complete nation being delivered into Canaan.
