“What is ‘Salvation?’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (John 7:38-39) The one who believes in Me [Jesus], as the Scripture has said, will have rivers of living water flowing from his heart."
(John 7:39) Now He [Jesus] said this about the [Holy] Spirit; Whom those who were believing in Him [Jesus] were to receive. For the [Holy] Spirit was not yet present, because Jesus had not yet been glorified. [Acts 2:1-to-(4 but Wait)-5]
*** (Ephesians 4:30) And do ‘not’ grieve the Holy Spirit of God: by Whom you are ‘Sealed’ until the day of redemption.
*** (Romans 8:9) You, however, are ‘not’ of the flesh but under the control of the Spirit; since God's [Holy] Spirit ‘lives’ in you. And if anyone ‘does Not’ have the Spirit of Christ, he does = ‘NOT’ = belong to Him.
There are ‘Only’ –> “Two groups” of people… living here on Planet Earth. The Holy Word of God is emphatically clear about these. The first group is the most numerous of all. They are the Un-Redeemed. They do “Not” have the Holy Spirit of God! They are “Blinded” by Satan and have no appetite for the things of God. They believe in “No Authority”… but their ‘Own!’ They had no thought about the ‘Future of Eternity’… and are consumed by “Self!” They are on the ‘Wide Road’ that leads to… “Eternal Damnation!” They are ‘continually’ “Rejecting God” and His Holy Word, the Bible! They may even be moral, humanely good people… who may even ‘do good’, to others. They may look no different than anyone else, outwardly. But they have rejected the knowledge of God and His command to –> All mankind, Everywhere… “To Repent!” They may even call themselves ‘Christians’ but are… “Devoid” of His Holy Spirit! One more time… They do “Not” have the Holy Spirit of God!

*** (2Corinthains 4:3) So if our gospel is veiled; it is veiled to those who are dying.
(2Cor 4:4) In their case, the god of this world [Satan]; has blinded the minds of those who do not believe: to keep them from ‘seeing’ the light of the glorious gospel of Christ; Who is the image of God. [Colossians 1:9-to-20]
*** (Romans 1:21-22) For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to Him. Instead, their thoughts turned to worthless things, and their ignorant hearts were darkened.
(Rom 1:22) Though claiming to be wise –> they became fools
*** (Matthew 7:13-14) “Go in through the ‘narrow’ gate. For the gate is ‘wide’ and the road is ‘spacious’ that leads to destruction [Damnation], and “Many” people are entering by it.
(Matt 7:14) How ‘narrow’ is the gate and how ‘constricted’ is the road that leads to [Eternal] life, and “FEW” are the people who find it!”
*** (Acts 17:30-31) Though God has overlooked those times of ignorance, He now strictly commands –> everyone –> everywhere –> “To REPENT”,
(Acts 17:31) for He [God] has set a day when He is going to judge the world with justice –> through a Man [Christ Jesus]: He [God] has appointed, and He has given proof of this to everyone by raising Him from the dead.
*** (Jude 1:19) These be they who separate themselves, sensual: having “NOT” the [Holy] Spirit.
*** (Luke 4:4) And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written that “man shall Not live by bread alone; but by “Every” –> Word of God.” [Matthew 4:4 & Deuteronomy 8:3]
Did “Christ JESUS”… Say: “Few”…? “Some”…? or… “MANY”…?
… He Christ Jesus, said… “MANY”…!
… He Christ Jesus, said… “MANY”…!
*** (Matthew 7:21-22-23) NOT Everyone = who says to Me [Jesus], Lord! Lord! shall enter the kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in Heaven.
(Matt 7:22) MANY = will say to Me in that day, Lord! Lord! Did we not prophesy in Your name, and through Your name throw out demons, and through Your name do many wonderful works?
(Matt 7:23) And then I [Jesus] will say to them = I [Jesus] “Never knew You!” = Depart from Me, those working lawlessness!
False Christians – 101 Blog [1/4]
The Other Group are the Redeemed… who have the “Holy Spirit” –> “Indwelling & Eternally Sealing” them! They have Truly Believed on Christ Jesus… just as He said, “John 7:38-39!” They have “Responded” to the Holy Spirit of God. God made them cognizant of His “Grace & Mercy & Love”… He has for all mankind. Accepted by Few, Rejected by Many! God the Father, Who saw their “Heart Response” to His Love… “Gave them His Holy Spirit”… to “Validate their Belief.” They are the Redeemed: Eternally Forgiven: Regenerate… “Children of the Only ‘True & Living’ God”…! And the Indwelling Holy Spirit… validates God’s Truth to them. The Holy Spirit is simply… God living within Us…! These DO… have the Holy Spirit of God!
“Will ‘You’ be: “Reconciled to God?” – 101” …Blog.
*** (John 6:44) No one can come to Me [Jesus] unless the Father [God]: Who sent Me [Jesus] “Compels” him’ and I [Jesus] will raise him to life [eternal] on the last day.
*** (John 6:37) All that the Father [God] gives Me [Jesus]; shall come to Me, and the one who comes to Me; I will in ‘no way’ cast out.
*** (Ephesians 1:4) according as He [God] chose us in Him [Christ]; before the foundation of the world; that we should be ‘Holy’ and without blame before Him in love,
*** (Acts 15:8-9) God, who knows everyone's heart, showed them he approved by –> ‘giving’ them the Holy Spirit, -> just as He did to us.
(Acts 15:9) He made no distinction between them and us, because He [God] cleansed their hearts by faith.
*** (Romans 8:15) For you have ‘not’ received a spirit of slavery that leads you into fear again. Instead, you have received the [Holy] Spirit of adoption by Whom we cry out, "Abba! Father!"
(Rom 8:16) The Spirit Himself –> testifies with our spirit –> that we are God's children.
(Rom 8:17) Now if we are children, we are heirs-heirs of God –> and co-heirs with Christ, if, in fact, we ‘share’ in His sufferings in order that we may also ‘share’ in His glory.
*** (1Jn 2:19) They went out from us, but they were ‘not’ of us; -> for if they were of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out so that it might be revealed –> that they were ‘Not’ all of us.
Salvation is the Holy Spirit…! Plain & Simple… If ‘You’… do “Not” have His Holy Spirit… ‘You’ do “Not” belong to Him! No matter what ‘You’… “Say or Claim”…! Or even to What: Denomination or Church ‘You’ belong to…! This doctrine [teaching] is the most important one to know. All others will align themselves with this One… Because the Holy Spirit… not only wrote the Holy Word of God… but the Holy Spirit… “Reveals it to US!” Without the Holy Spirit… we could not understand the Holy Word of GOD! He, the Holy Spirit… not only reveals the Mind of Christ… throughout His Holy Word… but writes it upon our Hearts! Did ‘You’ know that the ‘First Fruit’ of His Holy Spirit within us is… “Our Salvation!” He, the Holy Spirit bears witness with our Human Spirits… that we are “Truly” the Children of God. There are “TWO” very important chapters in the Bible. These are ‘Paramount’ for the Child of God. One is… “John 17:All”…! That is the Prayer… that Christ Jesus prayed for “All” that are Truly His –> “Throughout All Time & Eternity!” Yes, before ‘You’ even came to Christ… He Jesus… Prayed that for You! The Other is… “Romans 8:All”…! That shows the True Believer… their “Real Position” in Christ Jesus! May I suggest that ‘You’ memorize these… because of “Psalms 119:11”…?
*** (1Corinthains 2:9) But as it is written, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined the things that God has prepared –> for those who love Him.”
(1Cor 2:10) But God has ‘revealed’ those things to us –> by His [Holy] Spirit. For the [Holy] Spirit searches everything: –> even the deep things of God.
(1Cor 2:11) Is there anyone who can understand his own thoughts except by his own inner spirit? In the same way, ‘no one’ can know the thoughts of God –> except God's [Holy] Spirit.
(1Cor 2:12) Now, we have ‘not’ received the spirit of the world: –> but the [Holy] Spirit –> Who comes from God: –> so that we can ‘understand’ the things that were ‘freely’ given to us by God.
(1Cor 2:13) We don't speak about these things in words taught us by human wisdom; but in words ‘taught’ by the [Holy] Spirit: –> as we explain ‘spiritual’ things –> to ‘spiritual’ people.
(1Cor 2:14) A person who isn't spiritual doesn't ‘accept’ the things of God's Spirit: –> for they are ‘nonsense’ to him. He can't ‘understand’ them –> because they are spiritually evaluated [encoded].
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.
*** (1Jn 2:21) I have not written to you because you ‘do not’ know the Truth; but “Because” you ‘know’ it; and know that -> ‘No Lie’ is of -> the Truth.
*** (2Peter 1:20-21) First of all, you must understand this: No prophecy in Scripture is a matter of one's own interpretation,
(2Pe 1:21) ‘Because’ no prophecy ever originated through a human decision. Instead, men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
*** (Ephesians 5:9) For the Fruit of the [Holy] Spirit consists of every form of Goodness, Righteousness, and “TRUTH”.

May I share some of my Blogs about the Holy Spirit…? Please take some time to Open Your Bible and ‘validate’ these Bible Truths. These are not all inclusive, nor are they meant to be. Simply use them as a… “Starting Point”… to your Spiritual Growth & Understanding of the Holy Spirit. It is my prayer & hope that these will… “Whet your Appetite”… for the ‘Deep Things’ of God!
*** (Deuteronomy 29:29) The ‘secret’ things belong to the LORD Jehovah our God; but the ‘revealed’ things belong to us and to our sons forever; so that we may ‘do’ all the words of this Law.
*** (Mark 1:35) And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, HE [Jesus] went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed. [worshiped]
*** (1Samuel 3:21) And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the LORD.
