“The NT Born Again & ‘OSAS’ – 101”…Blog.

*** (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. [Ephesians 1:13-14]
Question: “What happens when One, is Born Again”…?
*** (1Corinthains 12:13) For also by one Spirit we are all baptized [John 7:38-39 & Acts 15:8-9] into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free, even all were made to drink into one Spirit.

The Simplest Explanation: is that… “Holy Spirit is Salvation”…! IF One does “NOT” have the Holy Spirit… “Romans 8:9”… they are “NOT” Born Again…! Salvation is “NOT” walking a Church Aisle or Joining a Church Denomination…! It is “NOT” saying the Sinners Prayer… or Praying to Receive Christ into your Heart…! It is ONLY… A “Divine Transaction” between the Sinner and GOD…! An easy way to Check about “Biblical Salvation”… is to see what the “SCRIPTURES” Say… and “NOT” what someone tells You…! Christ Jesus “PROMISED” Salvation… [John 7:38-39]… for a “Correct” belief in Him and His Finished Work of Redemption…! Can You Quote… that Bible Verse”…? His Promise was “CONDITIONAL”… on True Scriptural Belief…!

(Acts 15:9) And He put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.
(Acts 15:10) Now therefore why do you tempt God by putting a yoke on the neck of the disciples, a yoke which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?
(Acts 15:11) But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, according to which manner they also believed.
*** (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,
(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.

(Eph 2:9) NOT of works, lest anyone should Boast.
(Eph 2:10) For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them.
*** (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,
