Hey Brandan,
What I think you are calling a declaration by God at the new birth I call an enlightenment, a translating from darkness into the light, an understanding of our justification and what Christ did for us. I am not sure why that would be a declared justification (or declaring us just before the law). But maybe I am not understanding what you mean by a declaration.
