“Not I, but CHRIST – 101” …Blog.

“Not I, but CHRIST – 101” …Blog.

*** (Galatians 2:20) I have been crucified with Christ, and I live; yet no longer I, but Christ lives in me. And that life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith toward the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself on my behalf. [John 7:38-39]

*** (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.

*** (Micah 6:8) He has shown you; O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you; but to do justice; and to love mercy; and to walk humbly ‘with’ your God?

*** (Isaiah 26:10) Let favor be shown to the wicked; ‘Yet’ he will ‘NOT’ learn righteousness; in the land of uprightness he will deal ‘unjustly’, and ‘Will Not’ behold the majesty of Jehovah the LORD.

*** (Jeremiah 13:23) Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard its spots? Then you also may do good; who are ‘Accustomed’ to: Doing Evil!

Each day I visit some… of the On Line Social Sites. Face Book, Twitter and a few others. Any day of the year, there is someone saying “Something Other”… than the Holy Word of God! The possibly largest topic is: “Water Baptism!” Many or Most churches perform Water Baptism as part of their ministries. MOST do NOT know that WATER cannot possible save “ANYONE!” This is especially true in the Baptist denominations, where Church Membership is dependent on Water Baptism there or a “Letter of Baptism!” from another Church. MANY miss the Scriptures: and go right to that Churches “Denominational Teachings! This in MANY Cases disagrees with Scriptures, the Holy Word of God. “ALL Denominations are “MAN MADE!” And NO, I am NOT singling out the Baptists. Here in Florida, SOME Churches Baptize at the ‘Beach!’ Since we are to be the… “Salt of the Earth” [Matthew 5:13] … why NOT in Salt Water…?  Oh Yes, in case you missed that one, it is a Joke: as there is NO Command in Scripture to use “Salt Water!”


*** 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… with Scriptures…?

*** (1Corinthains 12:13) For also by one Spirit we are all baptized [1Corinthians 12:13] 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]

*** (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,

*** (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.

Water Baptism and Salvation – 101 Blog.      

Salvation, being “Born AGAIN” [from Above] by the Holy Spirit of God… is based on “Several Symbiotic Things!” The Finished Work of Redemption by Christ Jesus, the Passover Lamb of God: “1Corinthians 5:7”…! And the “Grace, Love & Mercy of God!” Many do NOT understand these “Scriptural Facts”! And so, that they easily confuse their Church Teachings: with the Holy Word of God! The Grace of GOD: is NOT based on “Any Human Effort!” What did You DO: to “EARN your Birthday Present”…? Was it NOT: “A GIFT?” Our “Human Depravity” is inherited from ‘Adam & Eve!’ Each one is “Born A Sinner”… and operates as such. The Scriptures teach that there is NO INHERIT Good in any of US! A simple ‘reading & study’ of the ‘Book of Romans’, makes that quite clear. NONE of us… “Comes to Christ Jesus”… on our OWN! He GOD… draws [Compels] us… with the convicting “Holy Spirit Power & Conviction!” [2Timothy 2:25-26]

*** (Romans 3:10-11-12) as it is written: "There is NONE righteous, NO, NOT ONE;
(Rom 3:11) there is NONE that understands, there is NONE that seeks after God."
(Rom 3:12) "They are ALL gone out of the way, they have together become unprofitable, there is NONE that does good, NO, NOT ONE."

*** (John 6:44) No man can come to Me [Jesus], except the Father [God] which hath sent Me draw [Compel] him: and I [Jesus] will raise him up at 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. [John 10:16]

*** (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." [Romans 8:9]
(John 7:39) Now He [Jesus] said this about the [Holy] Spirit, Whom those who were believing in him were to receive. For the [Holy] Spirit was Not yet present, because Jesus had Not yet been glorified. [Acts 2:1-5]

“Rivers of Living Water – 101” …Blog.
*** (Galatians 2:16) Knowing that a man is “NOT Justified”: -> by works of the Law: -> but through Faith in Jesus Christ; even we believed in Jesus Christ: -> that we might be Justified by the faith in Christ: -> and ‘NOT’ by works of the Law. For ALL flesh -> will ‘NOT’ be justified: ->by works of law.

*** (Galatians 3:11) Now it is obvious that NO ONE is justified in the sight of God by the law, because "The righteous will live by FAITH."

May I ask a Simple Question…? Can You take your Bible and… “Defend your Faith”… with “Multiple Bible Chapters & Verses”…? IF: You Cannot… THEN: You are simply Parroting: “What” You have learned from your ‘Church or Denomination!’ Have You ever had anyone remark, “You are judging ME”… after posting Bible verses? That is simply the “Evidence of Holy Spirit Conviction”… which cannot be brought about by any person. Many do NOT understand the Doctrine of the Holy Spirit! And thus have a problem understanding “Salvation in Christ Jesus!” Absolutely “NO HUMAN EFFORT” can bring about Salvation; it is ALL: “THE BLESSED WORK of GOD”…! He Commands: “Repentance & Gives IT”…! [Acts 17:30-31 & 2Timothy 2:25-26] Your response is ONLY to His, “Grace & Mercy & Love”…!

*** (Ephesians 4:30) And do Not grieve the Holy Spirit of God: by Whom you are “SEALED”… until the day of redemption.

Holy Spirit Conviction - 101

*** (Luke 16:30-31) And he said, No, father Abraham, but if one should go to them from the dead, they would repent.
(Luke 16:31) And he said to him, If they do not hear Moses and the Prophets; they will NOT be persuaded, even though one rose from the dead.
*** (Galatians 2:16) Knowing that a man is “NOT Justified”: -> by works of the Law: -> but through Faith in Jesus Christ; even we believed in Jesus Christ: -> that we might be Justified by the faith in Christ: -> and ‘NOT’ by works of the Law. For ALL flesh -> will ‘NOT’ be justified: ->by works of law.

*** (Galatians 3:11) Now it is obvious that no one is justified in the sight of God by the law, because "The righteous will live by FAITH."

“MANY”… miss that the Holy Spirit... “John 7:38-39”... and the Spiritual Baptism... “1Corinthians 12:13 & Ephesians 4:5”... is a “Divine Transaction”: Done by “GOD ALONE!” Did ‘You’ purposely miss.... “Acts 15:8-9”... where GOD sees their “Hearts”... and HE ‘Only’... gives them: His Holy Spirit… “Ephesians 4:30 & Romans 8:9 & 2Corinthains 1:21-22”!

“What is ‘Salvation?’ – 101” …Blog.

*** (2Corintahins 5:10) For we must ALL appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive the things done through the body, according to that which he has done, whether good or bad.

*** (John 12:48) He who rejects Me [Jesus] and does not receive My Words; has One who judges him; the Word that I have spoken; the same shall ‘Judge’ him in the “Last Day”.

*** (Acts 17:11) And these were more noble = than those of Thessalonica, = in that they received = the Word = with all readiness of mind = and = searched the Scriptures = “DAILY” = to see if those things were so [or NOT?].

Love; in Christ, Roger // “Psalms 138:2”…!
