The HOLY SPIRIT and FIRE !


I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance.
but HE+ that cometh after me
is mightier than I,
Whose+ shoes I am not worthy to bear:
HE+ shall baptize you
with the HOLY SPIRIT,
and with
fire:
.
.
Whose+ fan is in His+ hand,
and HE+ will thoroughly purge His+ floor;
and gather His+ wheat into the garner;
but HE will burn up the chaff
with unquenchable fire.
Matthew 3: 11, 12

If you want the blessings of The LORD to attend your way, then you must ask yourself: What have I done for JESUS CHRIST?

Paid your bills? ....Commendable, but millions of pagans and Buddhists and Moslems and Hindus pay their bills.... but they won't get into Heaven.
.
Didn't ever drink, smoke, or do drugs? ... lots of people haven't done these things. But that's not a ticket into Heaven either.
.
.
Fed, clothed, and raised your children to be decent, law-abiding, productive citizens? .....Now this is simply your un-abdicatable duty; you will be dreadfully accountable if you don't do this. Again, the above millions of peoples do this very same thing... yet they do not follow the Living Savior, Our LORD JESUS CHRIST,... so Heaven will be closed to them also.
.
.

Kept the 10 Commandments? (i.e., no stealing, no killing, no "cussin' using The LORD'S name, no adultery, doing ONLY Holy things on the sabbath, have not coveted after [lusted after] anything or person I've seen, etc.)... Aha, you say, I've kept all these things from my youth up because my parents made us live holy and righteous lives... but, that's not enough to get you into Heaven. If it was, the Bible could have stopped at Exodus.
.
Like JESUS Himself+ said, those commandments are right things to do and indeed, are simply the basic requirements of all.. Nothing beyond basic duty here... although you will reap better fruits if you do these right things than if you do not!
.
BUT, it still won't get you into Heaven.
.
Why?
.
Because you haven't been cleansed from your past sins...
and your present tendency
to hide your sinful nature from GOD.
.

However, HE+ sees you as you REALLY are.
HE+ loves you...
but an uncleansed sinner simply doesn't enter Heaven.
.

HE+ will not change the rules for anyone,
including me or you.
.

If you don't believe this now,
REALITY awaits you
when you open your eyes
in death.
.

So, what must I do to be saved from the punishment
certainly ordained for each person who dies in their sins?

JESUS
says you MUST (no option here) ... yes, MUST be born again in order to see Heaven. You must be born from above, through water and by the HOLY SPIRIT.
.
And...
.
here is the scary part...
.
you can't control the HOLY SPIRIT...
.
HE+ does!
.

HE+ Who+ loves you MOST, knows you BEST.
.
You cannot hide anything in the secret place of your heart;
HE+ sees you in there.
.

So HE+ waits.
.
HE+ waits for you to come clean
and confess your sins...
all of them...
to HIM+.
.

If you confess and turn away from your sins
AND WANT TO LIVE ONLY FOR JESUS,
HE+ will know it!
[ HE+ will also know it if you
don't want to live only for HIM+ .]
.

HE+ will bring you that new birth from above [through water and the HOLY SPIRIT] and make you into a brand new creature...that new creature in CHRIST that The Word talks about. And you will be clean and have help to STAY clean until it is your time to leave this world for the Heavenly realm.
.

So, if you want the reality of blessings, then do it HIS+ WAY... repent, be cleansed, and come and follow JESUS... in spirit and in truth.
.
Then... and only then... you will be able to DO SOMETHING FOR JESUS... something that is acceptable unto a Holy LORD and not a pitiful humanistic endeavor.
.
Then --- and only then---
will The LORD JESUS CHRIST
send forth His+ blessings
for this year and all the years to come.
.

Believe me, you'll get nothing from participating in a superstitious chain letter ...except another sin to be accountable for on the day of judgment.


JESUS said,
"I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life;
no one
comes to the FATHER
except through ME+."
.
HE+ meant it.
.
This was written in response to a superstitious chain letter sent to me. It had a portion of the LORD'S PRAYER on it. It said to say it and then immediately send the chain letter to 20 people to receive [health, wealth, etc.] for an entire year... with no problems!
.
.
At the bottom, we were informed it was a Roman Catholic novena. Upon research, I discovered its content originated in 1952 out of Mother Teresa [see "novena Wikipedia"]. But, Mother Teresa refused to give the poor dying ones the simple GOSPEL message that JESUS saves repentant sinners.
.
I'd stick to the Word!
