Being saved by the Lord Jesus means being allowed into the Family of God, not Church!
26th May 2016 (9.18) My .mp3 Thought for Today Audio
I have been sharing my Testimony with Christians since 1977.
How many Christians have responded to my Testimony. That is, questioned me about it and/or shared theirs.
The Answer is 0, that’s right NONE!
John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.
I, as with all who receive the Holy Spirit of God, testify to the truth about the Lord Jesus Christ and His Father.
The Holy Spirit is given to the Saints, those the Lord describes in John 14:23.
Acts 15:8 God, who knows the heart, showed that he accepted them by giving the Holy Spirit to them, just as he did to us.
1 John 5:10 Whoever believes in the Son of God accepts this testimony. Whoever does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because they have not believed the testimony God has given about his Son.
To testify to them of Christ.
The work of the Holy Spirit
John 15:26 ‘When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father – the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father – he will testify about me.
As an evidence of adoption.
Romans 8:16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.
As an evidence of Christ in them.
1 John 3:24 The one who keeps God’s commands lives in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: we know it by the Spirit he gave us.
As an evidence of God in them.
1 John 4:13 This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: he has given us of his Spirit.
Borne against all unbelievers.
Nehemiah 9:30 For many years you were patient with them. By your Spirit you warned them through your prophets. Yet they paid no attention, so you gave them into the hands of the neighbouring peoples.
Acts 28:25 They disagreed among themselves and began to leave after Paul had made this final statement: ‘The Holy Spirit spoke the truth to your ancestors when he said through Isaiah the prophet:
‘“Go to this people and say,
‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding;
you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.’
For this people’s heart has become calloused;
they hardly hear with their ears,
and they have closed their eyes.
Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
hear with their ears,
understand with their hearts
and turn, and I would heal them.” [Isaiah 6:9,10]
Can you see how the Holy Spirit of God is not just some Spiritual Power to called into action like at a time of worship.
How many people have the Holy Spirit?
IT’S TIME FOR EVERYBODY TO GET SERIOUS!
No Testimony of the Holy Spirit means no entry into Heaven.
