An essential commandment of our Savior is that you must be born again (John 3:7). Without the Baptism of His Holy Spirit, which is when Yahweh dwells within us, Salvation is quite impossible.
Truly, truly, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of Yahweh (John 3:5).
You must be born again enter into the Kingdom of Yahweh. Those who are born of the Spirit are Sealed unto the day of their Redemption (Eph 4:30, John 3:3-8).
Peter spoke of water baptism, unto those who had already received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Water baptism is an outward sign, or confession, of an inward Spiritual transformation (Acts 10:47, Rom 12:2).
Act 10:48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of Yahweh…
Water Baptism is unto repentance, and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is unto the assurance of Salvation through Messiah the Savior who is the image of Yahweh, that was manifest in the flesh (Isa 9:6, Luke 7:29, Acts 19:4).
Luke 3:16 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire
Salvation is quite impossible to obtain before our Savior returns. When the faithful are Saved, (the promise of His Coming is received) they shall be clothed with incorruption and immortality (Luke 21:20-28, 1 Cor 15:53-54).
Gal 5:5 For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith
At Messiah’s second appearing the Elect receive the crown of righteousness (2 Tim 4:8).
Receiving the assurance of Salvation is to put on an essential piece of protective armor. This “Spiritual Protection” is not understood by a sleepy church that has been led astray by wolves in sheep’s clothing.
Mat 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
Those who claim that they are already Saved, are not only mistaken and deceived, but are guilty of self-righteousness (Luke 18:9-14).
The hope of Salvation allows the faithful to endure all things through the power of Yahweh the Savior (Mat 10:22, 10:39, 19:29, 24:9).
When the Spirit of truth comes upon us, we can then understand the teaching of Yahweh regarding Salvation that gives us a sure hope, enabling us to endure until the end (John 16:13).
To be Born Again is a Spiritual Birth
John 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not
The tares cannot receive the Spirit of truth because they do not know Yahweh. But His Spirit dwells within those who are truly born-again (Mat 13:38, John 4:23-24, 14:17).
2 Thes 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks always to Yahweh for you, brethren beloved of Yahweh because Yahweh hath from the beginning chosen you unto salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth
Unless we are born again (with the infilling of Yahweh’s Spirit), we will not experience the kingdom of Yahweh (Rom 5:9, 9:27, John 3:3).
Too many believers are falsely taught that they are born-again, and yet they have never experienced the true indwelling of the Holy Spirit. It is only when Yahweh’s Spirit lives within us, that we can truly hear and believe unto everlasting life (John 5:24, 14:17; 15:26; 16:13; Eph 1:13, Rom 12:1-2).
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of Yahweh, even to them that believe on his name
Those who are truly led by the Spirit of Yahweh are His children (Rom 8:14, 1 John 3:1). These know, or will come to know, the mighty name of Yahweh.
The Elect are the temple of Yahweh, but the Spirit of Yahweh will not dwell in a temple that is unfit for his presence (1 Cor 6:19; 1 Cor 3:16; 2 Cor 6:16).
Eph 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise
The Holy Spirit is a down payment given to the faithful, who trust in Yahweh, and have submitted to his plan for their lives.
Eph 1:14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory
The reward of the faithful is redemption and an inheritance; this is the fulfillment of Yahweh’s contract with his Elect, given at His second coming (Isa 40:10, Isa 62:11).
1 Peter 1:8-9 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory – receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls
There are many reasons why few will ever truly experience the indwelling of Yahweh’s Spirit. The distractions of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and other worldly lusts, make the Word of Yahweh of no effect to those who have a carnal and earthly mind (Matt 13:22, Mark 4:19, Math 15:6-9).
1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him
John 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him
The ability to truly understand Yahweh’s Word, is only possible when His Spirit dwells within us. That is what transpires when we are born again (John 14:17; 15:26; 16:13; Eph 1:13).
