“Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever” (1 Peter 1:23).
Jesus said in Luke 8:11 that the Word of God is seed. That means you were born of God’s incorruptible seed when you were born again. The word “seed” is translated from the Greek word “sperma.” That’s where the English word “sperm” came from. So the opening scripture should actually read: “being born again, not of a corruptible sperm, but of incorruptible, by the sperm of God which liveth and abideth forever.
Understand that when you’re born again you’re born of God’s sperm–His Word. This is what makes you indestructible. The life in you is sickness, disease and death resistant. You have the very life of God, and that makes you supernatural. The same life that makes God Who He is what now flows in your spirit, soul and body. Your life is no longer dependent on the blood that flows through your physical body.
The blood of man is the life of His flesh (Leviticus 17:11), but when you become a child of God by being born again you become a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17); your blood ceases to be what sustains your life.
No wonder the Bible says, “…as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (John 1:12-13). You’re born of God; you have the life of God in you. Therefore you cannot fail, you cannot be poor and you cannot be destroyed. The life in you is not susceptible to sickness, disease or infirmity.
Jesus said, “… nothing shall by any means hurt you” (Luke 10:19). He’s letting you know that you’re indestructible. Nothing, absolutely nothing can hurt or destroy you when you’re conscious of who you are in Christ.
