“The ‘Simplicity & Complexity’ of Salvation in Christ Jesus – 301” …Blog. [3/?]

“The ‘Simplicity & Complexity’ of Salvation in Christ Jesus – 301” …Blog. [3/?]

3.    Principle Three: “The Holy Spirit… What about Biblical “REPENTANCE”…?

True Biblical REPENANCE: is a Function of the Holy Spirit… and the Command of God! In reality, ALL: “Conviction of SIN/SINS”… comes from the Holy Spirit of God…! When we speak the Holy Word of God, to others, the Holy Spirit can take the… “The Sword of the Spirit: The Word of God”… and convict those Hearers. Do You remember the Stoning of Stephen, “Acts 7:57”…? And HOW they… “Stopped their Ears”…? It was Truly the Holy Spirit, taking the testimony of Stephen and Convicting them of the Death of Christ! So it is today, when speaking with other Christians [?], that some will be Offended by the Words You… “Share & Speak”. None Truly Born Again, are offended by the Holy Word of God. IF they have “Unconfessed Sin” or “Practicing Sin” in their Lives: they will be Offended at your words! Simply SPEAK His Holy Word as You are led [Romans 8:14] and allow Him to do the rest!

*** (Jeremiah 1:8) Do not be afraid of their Faces; for I am with you to deliver you, says the LORD Jehovah.

*** (Ezekiel 2:7) And you shall speak My Words to them, whether they will hear or whether they will forbear, for they are [most] rebellious.

*** (Ephesians 6:17) And take the helmet of salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, The… Holy Spirit: “SWORD of the SPIRIT -> the Word of God”…!

·       The heart of the person under conviction will respond this way… Acts 9:6.
·       Belief and Confession… bring forth Salvation… Roman 10:9-to-13.
·       Immediately that Salvation is evident by the Holy Spirit… Ephesians 1:4-to-17. Acts 15:8-9…
·       Immediately the Holy Spirit comes to resided in that person… 1Cor 12:13 & Romans 8:9

Holy Spirit Conviction - 101

4. Principle FOUR: “The Holy SpiritGIVES: “CONVICTION & REPENTANCE”… to the Unbeliever…!

*** (2Timotny 2:25-26) in meekness instructing those who oppose, if perhaps God will give them Repentance to the acknowledging of the Truth,
(2Ti 2:26) and that they awake out of the snare of the Devil, having been taken captive by him, so as to do the will of that one.

*** (2Peter 3:9) The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that ANY should perish, but that ALL should come to Repentance.

*** (Acts 17:30-31) And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now [Strictly] Commands ALL men everywhere to REPENT:
(Acts 17:31)  Because He has appointed a day, in which He will judge the world in righteousness by that man [Christ Jesus] Whom: He hath ordained; whereof He hath given assurance unto ALL men; in that He [God] has raised Him [Jesus] from the dead. [John 10:17-18]

*** (1Timothy 2:4) Who will have All men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the Truth [John 17:17].

*** (2Peter 3:9) The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that ANY should perish, but that ALL should come to Repentance.

*** (Luke 3:8) Therefore, bring forth Fruits worthy of Repentance; and do not begin to say within yourselves; We have Abraham for our father. For I [Jesus] say to you; that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones.

5.    Principle FIVE: “The Holy Spirit is… How we live our “New Life” in Christ Jesus!

*** (2Corinthians 4:7) But we have this Treasure [Romans 8:9] in earthen [our human bodies] vessels; that the excellency of the [His Holy Spirit] Power; may be of God; and –> NOT’ of us.

*** (Zechariah 4:6) Then he answered and spoke to me, saying, This is the Word of the LORD Jehovah to Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the LORD Jehovah of Hosts.

*** (John 4:24) God is a Spirit, and they who worship Him must worship in Spirit and in Truth.

*** (Ephesians 5:9) For the Fruit of the [Holy] Spirit consists of every form of Goodness, Righteousness, and “TRUTH”. [2Peter 1:1-to-10]

“The Fruit of the Holy Spirit – 101”…Blog. [1/7]

*** (2Corinthains 4:16) For this cause we do Not faint; but though our outward man Perishes, yet the inward man is Being Renewed = Day by Day. [John 15:1-2-3].

*** (Luke 6:46) And why do ‘you’ call Me [Jesus] = Lord, = Lord; and do ‘Not’ do - what I [Jesus] say? [James 1:22]

“Is Christian ‘Obedience’… Optional? – 101”…Blog.

*** (2Timothy 2:15) Do your Best to present yourself to God as an Approved Worker, who has Nothing to be ashamed of, Handling the Word of Truth with Precision.
(2Tim 2:16) However, avoid pointless discussions. For people will become more and more ungodly,

Christ Jesus [Messiah] is Our PASSOVER LAMB of GOD, & Christ Jesus [Messiah] is Our SABBATH [Rest] -> Matthew 11:27-to-30...!
… The TRUE WORSHIP of GOD... is a Function of the HOLY SPIRIT [Rom 8:9] in our Hearts and NOT... of the Day of the Week...! AGAIN…

… TRUE Christianity is “NOT A RELIGION”…! It is a Relationship with GOD, by the “FINISHED WORK of Redemption”… by Christ Jesus [Messiah] the Passover Lamb of GOD [1Corinthains 5:7] The LORD of Lords, and KING of Kings…!

*** (Hebrews 10:12) But this Man [CHRIST JESUS], 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.

QESTION: Is there any Good in You…? Answer: “NONE”…!

*** (Romans 5:10-11-12) For if when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.
(Rom 5:11) And not only so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the reconciliation.
(Rom 5:12) Therefore, even as through one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin, and so death passed on all men inasmuch as all sinned:

We ALL need a Savior… because we are ALL: “Born Sinners”…!  “SIN is the Root”… & “Sins are its Fruit!” No one has to be TAUGHT how to LIE, Cheat or Steal! It is all part of our Sinful Human Nature. Have You ever read thought the book of Romans? As one studies the Holy Word of God: it is revealed just how sinful we really are! NO One can Keep the Laws of God! Old Testament COVENANT Israel did NOT keep the Law of God, and neither can Modern Man!

*** (2Corinthians 4:7) But we have this Treasure [Romans 8:9] in earthen [our human bodies] vessels; that the excellency of the [His Holy Spirit] Power; may be of God; and –> ‘NOT’ of us.

*** (Luke 18:18-19) Then an official asked Jesus, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
(Luke 18:19) Jesus said to him, Why do you call Me good? Nobody is good except for “One” –> “God”. [Genesis 18:25]

“None good but ‘One’ [God] -101” …Blog.
*** (Ephesians 2:8-9-10) For by such grace you have been saved through faith. This does not come from you; it is the gift of God
(Eph 2:9) and NOT the result of works, lest anyone boast.
(Eph 2:10) For we are his masterpiece, created in Christ Jesus for good works that God prepared long ago to be our way of life.

*** (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,

*** (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.
