Something happened when you prayed.
Question: What was it?
Answer: You were reborn.
Question: What does that mean?
Answer: It means that the inner "you" who is a spirit that lives in your body
now, and continues to live when your body ceases to function (dies), the
always living, eternal "you," got a do-over. God remade your spirit and He
made it perfect and sinless. If you prayed that prayer with your heart then
you, the spirit, were made whole again.
You were transferred from the dominion of darkness to the dominion and
Kingdom of Heaven.
The Source of all made you so clean that He can now reside in you
without destroying you by His perfection (not because God is an evil
destroyer, but because spiritual darkness is destroyed by God's light--like
sunshine destroys bacteria and mold by its very presence.) In order for
you to be restored to a living relationship with God where you can enjoy
His presence you needed to be freed of imperfection, not in your body,
but in your spirit.
The Source of all life, light and love, the Creator, gives new life, light and
love--eternally--to all those who choose His gift, as you have.
Those who reject the Creator's gift of life remain in spiritual darkness,
separated from love, hope, joy, freedom and true pleasure (because they
are separated from God who is the source of all those things). . . forever.
The God of all love is rejoicing over you that you have chosen true
freedom, and have been made new.
If you died today you would go directly to Heaven. What ever kingdom
you die in, is the one you stay in. If you prayed that prayer from your heart,
you have been transferred to the Kingdom of light and will go there
instantly when you die.
And there is MORE GOOD NEWS.
Jesus said, "I came that you might have life, and that more
abundantly." He came for us to be restored both spiritually and
physically. He demonstrated God's desire to do so by healing all those
who came to Him, by supernaturally feeding people, by demonstrating
and teaching truth, such as "All things are possible to him who
believes," and "I have given you authority over all the power of the
These are radical statements, backed by the power of Heaven. Those of
us who have taken Him seriously and have believed His words, have seen
the miraculous occur in our lives. We have seen miraculous healing,
miraculous leading, miraculous instruction, miraculuous provision and
We have seen that Jesus' words are true and all things really are
possible to the person who believes.
I encourage you to find out what Jesus purchased for you when He died
in your place. Find out what belongs to you as a reborn, righteous, sinless
spirit. Get to know God personally.

It is best to start with the New Testament. This is the part that is all about
Jesus. It is an historical account of His birth, life, death and resurrection
from the dead, all by eyewitness who personally knew Him. His life is also
verified by other historical records outside the Bible.

THE BAD NEWS, or, "WHAT DIDN'T HAPPEN"
What didn't happen, is that all the history of your life, stored in your body
and your brain was not erased, nor was it restored to perfection, like your
spirit. What that means is that, though you know, that you know, that you
know, that you are different in a seriously good way since you prayed, you
also know that something is still wrong. That wrong is that your body isn't
lined up with your spirit.
What that means is you now have a choice to make, on a daily basis.
Either walk from your old history and habit of life, dominated by your
senses and your physical body desires and emotional impulses, OR you
can learn to walk from your new spirit man and live a supernatural life,
filled with the presence of God and His help, direction, provision and
satisfaction. As you do that your physical body will literally change and you
will become freer and freer in your emotions and responses and
