Jesus said: "Amen, amen I say to you, unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Spirit he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God."
(John 3:3-8)

"Who believes in Him and is baptised, comes not into judgement, but has already passed from death to life."
(Mark 16:16; John 5:24)

"Who is joined to God, is one spirit with Him."
(1 Corinthians 6:17

He said, "I shall pour out My Spirit on all mankind. Your young men shall see visions and your old men shall dream dreams: And your young sons and daughters shall prophesy."
(Joel 2:27-32)

"You shall love the Lord your God with your whole heart, mind, soul and all your strength, and your neighbour as yourself."
(Luke 10:27)

The most beautiful experience to be had in this world is the moment of being filled to overflowing with the Spirit of God's Holy love.
Suddenly, you are overwhelmed with a love for everyone and everything.

For each of us our spiritual soul is the living spirit of our own personal identity as a human person - born to discover first oneself - and from there, to press on to discover the fulness of who we are to become.

In the end, it boils down to whether we remain in our original state of soul, or whether we undergo a supernatural transformation, a 're-birth' experience of being 'born again', when the soul is infused with God's own Holy Spirit, which He wishes to pour into every one of us.

If we do not accept His call to us to be 'born again' in this way - now joined to Him with His own Holy Spirit living within us - when we die, we shall forever remain separated from Him, never to know and love Him as Our Father, in His inexplicable Awesome Wonder and Majesty.
So, this is our choice:
Do we remain in our original state of being - a spiritual soul without His Spirit - or do we become truly His children - with His own Holy Spirit now living within us? With His Spirit comes capacity "to know Him fully, in the same way as we are known by Him." (1 Corinthians 13:12) And, at our death, He will carry us into His eternal Heavenly Kingdom-home to share in the 'forever-love' and awesome wonder of His own Eternity. (1 Corinthians 15:35-57)
It should be noted:
That to die without His Holy Spirit living in us, will be to die 'empty' of His 'Goodness' because:
"There is only One Who is Good, and that One is God." (Luke 18:19)
It is our hearts God wants, and these shall govern our destiny. He made this clear when He said, "When you seek Me with all your heart, I will let you find Me." (Jeremiah 29:13-14) In that instant, hearts shall be filled with His Eternal Holy Spirit of Love - but this happens only in consequence of our seeking Him - If we don't seek Him we shan't find Him. So, to die without His 'Only-One-Good-Holy-Spirit-Presence' within us, is to risk knowing only the 'emptiness' of where His 'fullness' should have been, to find "even that which we have has been taken away." (Matt. 13:12; 25:29) For these souls is threatened the "living 2nd Death" (Apoc.20:14-15) of eternal unrelenting remorse 'for having proved deaf' to His call for us all to be 'born-again' - filled to overflowing with His Spirit in unending awesome wonder and joy for all eternity.
(It took 10 years of searching, for me to find Him in a 'Damascus Moment' of dazzling light.)
