Repent and Believe in The Way!
All my life I went to Church. When I was a baby, my parents had me “baptized” into the Catholic church. I attended the Catholic church as a child until about the age of 6. Then I went to a Baptist church for about a year. Then I went to a Christian Reformed Church for approximately 13 years while attending a Reformed Christian School, grades 6-12. Then I went to a bunch of Non-denominational Churches for several more years. All told, after 33 years of going to myriad churches I felt there was always something wrong in ALL of them. Something was missing. I didn’t ever feel comfortable. None of the churches ever felt like home. I just didn’t know why I felt this way. So I kept searching. And searching. And searching. Always looking for that “something” that was missing.
That “something,” I’ve come to discover, was The Truth. God drew me to Himself and revealed Himself to me by showing me The Way, The Truth, and The Life–Who is Jesus Christ, the Good News. [John 14:6]
My whole life I never heard THE TRUTH of the gospel. In all the churches I attended, in all the famous ministers' tapes I listened to, in all the bible studies, from all the pulpits, from all the stadium outreaches, I never heard the true gospel of Jesus Christ.
But in February of 2006 I heard the truth for the first time!!! And the truth has set me free. This life God leads in and through “this flesh” will never be the same. This Web site is testimony to this fact.
This Free Gift of the True Gospel (or Good News) is the most valuable gift you will ever be given. Listen carefully if you have been drawn, and hear with your spiritual ear, and see with your spiritual eye.
THE GOOD NEWS!!!
You can have eternal life and have all your sins forgiven, and be perfect in God’s eyes–right now! And it is a free gift...but you have to believe to receive it!
#1. You must repent (have a changed mind) and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.
"And saying, 'The time is fulfilled , and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent, and believe the gospel. [Mark 1:15]
So, at this point you might be wondering how I didn’t hear this in the churches before, since some of them preach this. Okay, fair enough, but they don’t go any further than this. I was taught that all I needed to do was to accept that Jesus died for me and that was it–I would go to heaven. I go on living my own life but go to church every Sunday, be good to people, do bible studies, get sprinkled with water, maybe even go to seminary and be a preacher....etc. This is NOT the way to salvation!
To believe on the Lord Jesus Christ means that you believe God the Father gave His only born Son, Jesus Christ to pay the penalty for your sins on the cross. This means, Jesus took upon Himself all your sins.You died there 2000 years ago on that cross too. You must believe this or you will have no power over your flesh!
But if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him; "
You must believe you no longer live.
When Jesus was raised from the dead, you too were raised from the dead, but not you—Jesus Christ in your flesh. [Romans 6:11] This is what it means to be “born again”. When you believe, Jesus (the firstfruits of the New Creation) sows His seed “sperma” (greek) in you and you now have the Spirit of Jesus Christ. No longer are you “you”.
"Jesus answered and said to him, 'Truly truly I say unto thee, Except one be born from above,he cannot see the Kingdom of God." [John 3:3]
"I have been crucified with Christ; and no longer I live, but Christ lives in me, and what I now live in the flesh I live by faith which is in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself up for me." [Galatians 2:20]
It is by faith that you believe.
Now, Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. [Hebrews 11:1]
This newborn spirit of Jesus (seed) in a believer's flesh can now begin to grow.
To believe on also means that you believe His Word. What’s His Word? The Bible is His Word. What does the Word say to new believers????
#2. Be baptized in water. Just like Jesus did. Baptism is God’s way of helping us to start acting upon His Word in order to show us through outward signs and symbols what is going on inwardly in our spirit. When you, the believer go down into the Water (symbol for His Word), you die. When you come up out of the water, the water has cleansed you and you are raised to New Life. That New Man who is Christ Jesus comes up out of the water, the old you, dead selfish, fleshy, pleasure-seeking, sinful, corrupted man/woman is left behind.
"Or are you ignorant that all we who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? We were buried therefore with him through baptism into death that just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, thus we also might walk in newness of life. " [Romans 6: 3,4]
Many Churches do infant baptism, sprinkling....etc. This is all NOTHING to God. It is simply man’s dead religion that has no life and no salvation, and it is not the Truth that sets you free.
Remember, the actual act of baptism is just a symbol for you to help you believe. It does not save you in and of itself. But by faith you now live as Christ, having put to death the "old you" with the water of His Word.
When you are baptized, it is very important that you are baptized by someone who believes this true gospel and who possesses Spiritual Gifts. By spiritual gifts, I mean, speaking in tongues, prophecy, healing, miracles....etc. The supernatural gifts of the Father. 90% of the churches don’t teach this either!!! But find someone who does believe and does have these gifts so you can be prayed over to receive:
#3 The baptism of the Holy Spirit and Fire.
Jesus also, when coming up out of the water was baptised by the Holy Spirit who descended “as a dove” and “in bodily form” upon Jesus. [Luke 3:22] This is the POWER of God the Father-His Spirit. Just like Jesus had His own personal Spirit, He also, upon being baptised had the Holy Spirit. Two Spirits.
The true believers in the beginning of the church at Pentecost also received this gift of the Father, His Holy Spirit. The Father knows how to give good gifts to His children!!! [Acts 2]
So too, a TRUE BELIEVER gets both a born again Spirit of Christ Jesus and
the gift of the Holy Spirit.
If you have one and not the other, you need them both in order to carry out the process that God has ordained.
Process??? You mean to tell me God has conditions and a process to work out salvation in and through us??? Yes!! He does. And it is His Work by His Grace (free gift).Man cannot claim anything of his salvation. It is all God. So rest in Him.
"For he that is entered into His rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from His." [Hebrews 4:10]
#4 Be Sanctified.
[Or the baptism by fire that burns up the Old Man from the inside out] Jesus Christ is coming IN YOUR FLESH–the Manifestation.
"For many deceivers are entering into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist."
[2 John:7] (Note: In the original Greek "is come" for this verse uses the tense of present action--should be in English "is coming". Notice it is not past tense. )
When you are “born again” and given the gift of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit of God begins His perfect work in you both to will and to do the will of God the Father. For it is only in His Will that you are truly free, thus the only “free will” is God’s. The natural Man/Woman has no free will, he is only a slave to Satan, sin, and death, whether he knows it or not.
Sanctified means a continual separation from sin unto God until the believer is made perfect.
"For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: till we all come into the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the age of the fullness of Christ." [Ephesians 4:12-14]
The Law (Ten Commandments/Animal Sacrifice) only gave forgiveness for sins. In the New Testament, Jesus completely took sin away. [Hebrews 10:8-12]
When you believe and are converted, you are accounted righteous by faith and now are no longer a sinner, but saved.
Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference." [Romans 3:22]
LIES OF THE WHORE (ORGANIZED CHRISTIANITY/JUDAISM/UNIVERSAL CHURCH)
LIE: “You’re a sinner saved by grace”
TRUTH: Once you’re a believer in the true gospel of Jesus, “You WERE once a sinner, NOW saved by grace.” A believer is no longer a sinner, the old man is dead. Christ in you cannot sin. Jesus became sin on our behalf. We are now righteous. We accept this. The antichrist gospel says christ took away their sin, but they’re all still sinners. [2 John 7]. Jesus Christ is coming in the flesh. He’s coming in the flesh of His body (which is all true believers). God rises up in you and conquers your enemies and flesh.
LIE: “Just accept Jesus as your personal savior and you’ll be saved”
TRUTH: The above statement IS NOT the true gospel. That doctrine is sending more people in the Churches on a fast track to Hell than any other. God has set forth conditions for salvation. This is a race we run. We must not just say we believe and then sit down, thinking everthing's okay. "Don't you know that they who run in a race, everyone runs, but only one receives the prize? So run! That you may obtain. [1 Cor. 9:24] The prize is the incorruptible crown of Life--Jesus Christ fully matured in a believer. Some will never fully mature having collapsed or given up, or never run at all.
LIE: “The gifts of the Holy Spirit ended with the Apostles”. i.e. the speaking in tongues, healings, miracles, casting out demons, prophecy, raising of the dead, unable to be poisoned..etc.
TRUTH: The Holy Spirit has been in ALL true believers throughout history and ALL of them manifested the same POWER as the apostles in the New Testament. Today, all true believers exhibit the POWER of the HOLY SPIRIT. It is a GIFT from the Father that has NOT been taken from us. We MUST do the works of Jesus and we CANNOT without the Power of the Holy Spirit guiding us. [Mark 16:16]The 95% of Churchianity who deny these gifts are spoken of in the Bible here: "Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." [2 Timothy 3:5].
LIE: “Once saved, always saved.”
TRUTH: Your name can be blotted out of the book of the living. You can be reprobated and lose your salvation. "Examine yourselves, whether you be in the faith; prove your own selves. Don't you know that Jesus Christ is in you, except you be reprobates?" [II Corinthians 13:5]
"But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. "[1 Corinthians 9:27]
"Lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turns away this day from the Lord our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations; lest there should be among you a root that beareth gall and wormwood. And it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this curse, that he bless himself in his heart, syaing, I shall have peace, though I walk in the stubborness of my heart, to add drunkenness to thirst. The Lord will not spare him, but then the agner of the Lord and his jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the curses that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and the Lord shall blot out his name from under heaven." [Deuteronomy 29:18-20]
HE THAT BELIEVES AND IS BAPTISED SHALL BE SAVED, BUT HE THAT DOES NOT BELIEVE SHALL BE DAMNED.
AND THESE SIGNS SHALL FOLLOW THEM THAT BELIEVE; IN MY NAME SHALL THEY CAST OUT DEVILS; THEY SHALL SPEAK WITH NEW TONGUES; THEY SHALL TAKE UP SERPENTS; AND IF THEY DRINK ANY DEADLY THING, IT SHALL NOT HURT THEM; THEY SHALL LAY HANDS ON THE SICK, AND THEY SHALL RECOVER. [MARK 16:16-18]
