“The ‘Simplicity & Complexity’ of Salvation in Christ Jesus – 201” …Blog. [2/?]
*** (Hebrews 10:12-to-24) But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right of God,
(Heb 10:13) from then on expecting until His enemies are made His footstool.
(Heb 10:14) For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are sanctified.
(Heb 10:15) The Holy Spirit also is a witness to us; for after He had said before,
(Heb 10:16) "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord; I will put My Laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,"
(Heb 10:17) also He adds, "their sins and their iniquities I will remember no more."
(Heb 10:18) Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
(Heb 10:19) Therefore, brothers, having boldness to enter into the Holy of Holies by the blood of Jesus,
(Heb 10:20) by a new and living way which He has consecrated for us through the veil, that is to say, His flesh;
(Heb 10:21) and having a High Priest over the house of God,
(Heb 10:22) let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies having been washed with pure water.
(Heb 10:23) Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering (for He is faithful who promised),
(Heb 10:24) and let us consider one another to provoke to love and to good works,
*** (Hebrews 5:7-8-9) For Jesus, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications with strong cryings and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard in that He feared,
(Heb 5:8) though being a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered.
(Heb 5:9) And being perfected, He became the Author of eternal salvation to all those who obey Him,
*** (Acts 17:24-to-31) The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of Heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands,
(Acts 17:25) nor is served with men's hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives life and breath and all things to all.
(Acts 17:26) And He has made all nations of men of one blood to dwell on all the face of the earth, ordaining fore-appointed seasons and boundaries of their dwelling,
(Acts 17:27) to seek the Lord, if perhaps they might feel after Him and find Him, though indeed He is not far from each one of us.
(Acts 17:28) For in Him we live and move and have our being, as also certain of your own poets have said, For we are also His offspring.
(Act 17:29) Then being offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like gold or silver or stone, engraved by art and man's imagination.
(Acts 17:30) Truly, then, God overlooking the times of ignorance, now He strictly commands all men everywhere to Repent,
(Acts 17:31) because He has appointed a day in which He is going to judge the world in righteousness by a Man whom He appointed, having given proof to all by raising Him from the dead.
I have seen both the Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris France: & Westminster Cathedral in London UK. Spiritually Dead Churches filled with Spiritually Dead People… pretending to Worship GOD: and leaving off from His Holy Word. “Pomp & Circumstance & Tradition” have replaced the True Worship of God, within those human edifices. Actually OT Israel too was more concerned about the OUTSIDE Appearances, then the “True Heart OBEDICNE” to God & to His Holy Word! Did either of the “Two World Wars”, change their peoples heart…? So Neither did the “9-11” Terrorist Attack on America. QUESTION: “With what two words, can ONE… “Describe Being Born Again & the Finished Work of Christ Jesus”…? The Passover Lamb of God: “the LORD of Lords & KING of Kings”…? ANSWER: The “Holy Spirit”…! In Biblical Reality… the Holy Spirit is SALVATON! “Nothing More & Nothing Less!” It is NOT keeping the Law of God: which even OT Covenant Israel did! It is NOT: “Water Baptism”, which the NT Believers practice. Salvation is SIMPLY: The Holy Spirit! Those WHO have Him, have Salvation! Those who do NOT have HIM: do NOT have Salvation! QUESTION: Can You take your Bible and PROVE OR DISPROVE… that Statement…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”…?
1. Principle ONE: “The Holy Spirit is -> Salvation!”
*** (Romans 8:9) But you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit; if the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone has “NOT” the Spirit of Christ; he is ‘NONE’ of His.
*** (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. [Luke 22:49 & Acts 2:1-to-6]
“Rivers of Living Water – 101” …Blog.
*** (2Peter 3:15-16) And think of the long-suffering of our Lord as salvation; as our beloved brother Paul also has written to you; according to the wisdom given to him.
(2Pet 3:16) as also in all his letters, = speaking in them of these things; = in which are some things ‘hard’ to be understood, = which the ‘Unlearned’ and ‘Unstable’ = “Pervert”; = as also they do the rest of the = “SCRIPTURES”; = to their own destruction. [1Corinthains 16:22]
*** (Jude 1:19) These be they who separate themselves, sensual: having “NOT” the [Holy] Spirit.
Actually, after reading MANY of your Posts & Comments… it is my belief that ‘You’… “DO NOT Understand”… that Salvation in Christ Jesus is based on His Finished Work of Redemption! That Salvation is “Eternal”: because it is based ONLY: on His… “Grace & Mercy & Love: ALONE”… and “NOT” on any human effort or work. IF I were to put the Gospel into several Bible verses, it would be these… “John 7:38-39”…! True Saving Faith is ONLY… “As It Is Written…!” The HOLY SPIRIT is Salvation. Those who have HIM, have Salvation! Those who do NOT have Him: Do Not have Salvation! Why do so very many Argue over the… “Once Saved / Always Saved” Controversy…? Simply it is because they… “Do NOT Know”… the Bible Doctrine of the Holy Spirit…!
“Salvation is Instantaneous – Understanding Grace is NOT – 101” …Blog. [1/3]
*** (Proverbs 4:7) Wisdom is the main thing; get Wisdom; and with all your getting get Understanding.
*** (Ephesians 1:13-14) in Whom also you, Hearing the Word of Truth, the gospel of our salvation, in Whom also believing, [Acts 15:8-9] you were Sealed with the Holy Spirit of Promise, [John 7:38-39]
(Eph 1:14) Who is the earnest of our inheritance, to the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory. [Romans 8:9]
(Ephesians 4:30) And do Not -> “GRIEVE” -> the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you are “Sealed” until the day of redemption.

*** (1Corinthains 12:13) For also by one [Holy] Spirit we are all baptized [Ephesians 1:13-14] into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free, even all were made to drink into one Spirit. [John 7:38-39 & Acts 15:8-9]
*** (Revelation 20:15) And if anyone was NOT found having been written in the Book of Life, he was cast into the Lake of Fire.
*** (John 3:3) Jesus answered and said unto him; Verily, verily, I say unto you: Except a man be born again; he Cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

*** (Galatians 4:16) So then did I become your enemy; speaking to you the “Truth?”
*** (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.

2. Principle TWO: “The Holy Spirit is -> Given by a “God Transaction” & Not a Human One!”
*** (Act 15:8-9) God, Who knows everyone's Heart, showed them He Approved [John 7:38-39] by giving them the Holy Spirit, just as he did to us. [Genesis 18:25]
(Act 15:9) He made No distinction between them [Gentiles] and us [Jews], because He [God] cleansed their hearts by Faith.
*** (Galatians 3:2-3) This ONLY I would learn from you: Did you receive the [Holy] Spirit [Romans 8:9] by works of the Law, OR by Hearing of Faith? [Acts 15:8-9]
(Gal 3:3) Are you so Foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, do you NOW perfect yourself in the flesh? [Galatians 3:10-11 & James 2:10]
*** (Galatians 5:4) Those of you who are trying to be justified by the Law [Torah] have been cut off from Christ. You have Fallen away from Grace.
*** (James 3:12) Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? Either a vine, figs? So can NO fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
Right Away, someone will Quote passages from Acts… where Some received the Holy Spirit; by the Laying on of Hands! Question: Did God still see their Hearts? Answer “Yes!” But Seldom do they Speak About: those same ones being Water Baptized: ‘Twice!’ Once with the Baptism of John the Baptist, and then by the Disciples. I believe that GOD purposely did this so that those WHO would ‘Falsely Preach’… “Water Baptism for Salvation”… would be even “More Confused” with such Lies!
*** Ephesians 4:5 One LORD, One Faith, One “BAPTISM”….!
… Is that One “BAPTISM”… The Holy Spirit Baptism, “1Corithains 12:13”… or is it ‘SIMPLY WATER’, which ONLY gets one Wet…? Please Answer… “Yes or NO”…?
*** (1Corinthains 12:13) For also by one [Holy] Spirit we are all baptized (Ephesians 1:13-14) into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free, even all were made to drink into one [Holy] Spirit. [John 7:38-39 & Acts 15:8-9]
*** (Titus 3:5) NOT by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, [John 7:38-39 & Acts 15:8-9]
*** (1Corinthains 1:17) For Christ did ‘NOT’ send me [Paul] to Baptize; but to Preach the gospel; not in wisdom of words; lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect.
*** (Romans 11:6) But if by grace, then it is No more of works; Otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it is of works, then it is No more of grace; otherwise work is no more work.
