Things that will NOT save your soul!

- Church membership
- Confirmation and Baptism
- The Lord’s communion
- Religious Ceremonial Rituals
- Prayers (Your own or any other’s)
- Almsgiving
- Keeping the “Golden Rule”
- Being good an doing good
- Good works and good character
- Dying for your country or religion
- Lodge Membership
- Half-hearted Assent to any general belief in Christian principles.

Jesus said: “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.”
These words of Christ are final and without exception. It is therefore imperative that everyone inquire diligently, with regard to this experience.

 

You can DRIFT into Hell,
But you cannot DRIFT into Heaven!



Now, what is the food for
the inner man? Not prayer,
but the Word of God;
and here again, not the
simple reading of the Word
of God...but considering
what we read, pondering
over it, and applying it to
our hearts.

Die beginsel van die wysheid is om die Here te vrees, en die vrees van die Here is om te haat wat sleg is (sonde).

If a man be not absolutely determined to give up his sins and evil companions, and have his soul saved at all hazards, and at every expense, he will surely perish everlastingly. This requires a violent earnestness.

John 3;3: …verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God;

Nicodemus, according to the general sense of the nation, thought that when the Messiah came, and his kingdom was set up, they should all share in it, without any more ado; they being the descendants of Abraham, and having him for their father: but Christ assures him, that he must be "born again"; in distinction from, and opposition to his first birth by nature; in which he was vile, polluted, carnal, and corrupt, being conceived in sin, and shapen in iniquity, and was a transgressor from the womb, and by nature a child of wrath; and in opposition to his descent from Abraham, or being born of him, and of his seed; for this would be of no avail to him in this case, nor give him any right to the privileges and ordinances of the kingdom of God, or the Gospel dispensation; see Mt 3:9;

GO ON

J.O. McClurkan

You will only keep the grace you now have by going on and seeking more.  There are heights, depths, and breadths in the great Father’s heart that you know but little about.  Press on to be filled with all his fullness.  (Eph. 3:19.)  If I had but one message to holiness people, it would be, Go deeper – press on to know him in all his preciousness.  Exalt him more and more until your heart is a sea of glory – a garden where all the rich graces of the Spirit bloom, a temple filled with his beauty – yea, the palace from which the royal wealth of heaven’s King shall go forth to bless this old world in a thousand ways.

What Holiness means to me
George B. Ferguson

To say with deep sincerity and out of a pure heart, that, “I praise the Lord for wholly sanctifying my heart”, covers a multitude of expressions concerning holiness. The depth of meaning in the word “holiness” goes to the core of the individual personality; cleansing every root of our being, that we might be fashioned in the image of God.
READ ARTICLE...



Sin must be pardoned, and the impurity of the heart washed away, before any soul can possibly enter into the kingdom of God. As this new birth implies the renewing of the whole soul in righteousness and true holiness, it is not a matter that may be dispensed with: heaven is a place of holiness, and nothing but what is like itself can ever enter into it.

-Adam Clarke

 

VOLKOME HEILIGMAKING
‘N REIN HART GEVUL MET DIE HEILIGE GEES

Met die ondervinding van wedergeboorte (Joh. 3:3)  én die bevestiging daarvan (Rom. 8:16) deur die getuienis van die Heilige Gees, vind ‘n radikale verandering van lewenswyse plaas (2 Kor. 5:17).

Hierna volg ‘n proses van selfontdekking wat lei tot die behoefte aan ‘n dieper innerlike verlossing (vrymaking) en reiniging van die inwonende sonde asook die vervulling met die Heilige Gees.

Press on to Sanctification
(By John Fletcher)

Entire sanctification is an instantaneous salvation – that act of the Holy Ghost, according to our faith, by which sin is entirely expelled from the soul, when the blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth from all sin, and includes an instantaneous power then given, always to cleave to God.

I AM A NEW CHRISTIAN WHAT DO I DO NOW??

When you received Christ as your Saviour, several things took place in your life.
1. YOU BECAME A CHILD OF GOD.
2. YOUR SINS WERE FORGIVEN.
3. YOU PASSED FROM DEATH UNTO LIFE.
4. YOU RECEIVED ETERNAL LIFE AS A GIFT.
5. YOU SHALL NOT COME INTO CONDEMNATION.

However, there are certain things God expects from you now.

3. YOU SHOULD PRAY DAILY.
4. YOU SHOULD CONFESS YOUR SINS DAILY.
5. YOU SHOULD TELL OTHERS ABOUT CHRIST.
6. YOU SHOULD KEEP YOUR HEART AND THOUGHTS CLEAN.
7. YOU SHOULD ATTEND A BIBLE BELIEVING CHURCH REGULARLY.
8. YOU SHOULD WORK FOR THE LORD.
9. YOU SHOULD LOOK FOR THE SOON RETURN OF THE LORD.

The Heavenly Kingdom

There came a day in my life, as there has come to many people in all walks of life, when I heard the call of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the Lord Jesus Christ, and through his mercy and wondrous grace, I accepted the invitation to become a subject of a Kingdom, of which, He said, there would be no end.

Conversion of D. L. Moody

Over the next eleven months, Dwight listened to sermon after sermon from Dr. Edward Norris Kirk. The church itself had been formed twelve years earlier by Bostonians unhappy with the rigid doctrinal exclusiveness of another large city church. Pastor Kirk emphasized the sinfulness of man and man’s inability to save himself. He spoke of Christ’s death on the cross for all mankind, of Christ’s resurrection from the dead, and of Christ’s desire to be the friend of each one who trusted Him. On the other hand, the minister issued dire warnings to all who refused so great a salvation, and he verbally assaulted those who failed to do so.

J. Hudson Taylor, of the China Inland Mission, was saved when a lad, through reading a

that he concluded there was no use in him "trying."

Getuienis van Redding en Heiligmaking

Ek het in ‘n NG-sendingpastorie grootgeword en van jongs af die ware evangelie gehoor.
Ek het egter net lippediens daaraan bewys omdat dit met my innerlike, verdorwe natuur
in botsing gekom het. Ek het in twee wêrelde geleef – dit wat ek behoort te wees en dit
wat ek werklik was. Laasgenoemde was dié deel van my lewe wat ek weggesteek en
toegesmeer het. . .

Redding, Heiligmaking en Roeping Getuienis

Ek kom uit 'n goddelose en stukkende ouerhuis uit, waar 'n gevloek en geskel aan die orde van die dag was en geen liefde nie.  Voor my aanneming en voorstelling het ons eers 'n kamp bygewoon, en by daardie kamp het ek die Here in my lewe ingenooi as my Verlosser.  Toe verlaat ek die skool, en omdat ek so 'n geslote kinderlewe gehad het, en ek vir die eerste keer met die wereld te doen gekry het, was dit vir my lekker.  Die lewe was vir my 'n lied, en ek het my Here agtertoe geskuif en later was ek net soos die wereldlinge.

Everything New

When I turned eighteen and finished school, I joined the Police Force and going to church, reading the Bible and prayer became something of the past. I would still say the occasional prayer but it had no meaning and it was merely words and not true prayer.

Teruggeval

Toe ek egter 'n paar jaar later begin werk het het ek sonde in my lewe begin toelaat wat tussen my en die Here gekom het (eers klein en later groter – Mens val meestal nie dadelik in groot versoekings nie maar swig voor die kleineres totdat jou hart stomp word daarvoor dan kom die groter versoekings) – nie dinge wat die mense in die kerk en in my vriende kring sou agterkom nie.

Ek het gedink ek was weergebore

Ek was ʼn soet kind gewees. Ek het nooit betrokke geraak by enige slegte dinge (soos bv. dwelms) nie, ook nie gerook of gedrink nie, en het goed gedoen op skool. Ek het kerk toe gegaan, en was die laaste paar jaar baie betrokke in ons gemeente – ek gee kleuterkerk, doen voorsang, woon al die dienste by ens. Ek het gedink ek is weergebore omdat ek ʼn liefde vir die Here het en Hom dien deur my werke.

Ek het grootgeword in ‘n ouerhuis waar my pa predikant was, en ons kinders het maar elke Sondag kerk toe gegaan saam my ma, maar ek weet as kind het ek maar elke keer gegaan omdat ek moes. Alhoewel my pa predikant was, het ek nooit enige iets van wedergeboorte gehoor nie.

Conversion to Christ

On a Sabbath evening in the autumn of 1821, I made up my mind that I would settle the
question of my soul's salvation at once, that if it were possible I would make my peace
with God. But as I was very busy in the affairs of the office, I knew that without great
firmness of purpose, I should never effectually attend to the subject. . .

How he entered Canaan

I well remember my own experience when but a boy preacher. I awoke to the fact that
though I had a measure of success in soul-winning, I had doubts at certain times whether
all unholy tempers were gone. When I told it to my brethren, they tried to calm my fears
by saying it was temptation, or infirmities. They said I had the standard too high. During
those six years, I professed to have received the blessing [of holiness] a number of times.

Conversion of John Bunyan

John Bunyan, the world-renowned author of the Pilgrim's Progress, was never a drunkard or a libertine, but was given to profanity, Sabbath-desecration and "heart-atheism." Amidst his wicked career, he had many gloomy forebodings of the wrath to come; and his nights were often scared with visions, which the boisterous diversions of his waking day could not always dispel. He would occasionally dream that the last day had come, and that the quaking earth was opening its mouth to let him down to hell.

Ek het in ‘n Christen huis groot geword. My pa is ‘n predikant en my ma dien ook die Here, so ek het nog altyd die verskil geken tussen goed en kwaad.

I was born into a Christian family. I was the third child preceded by two sisters. Because I had an aunt who had borne six daughters in succession, my paternal aunt was displeased when my mother bore two girls. According to Chinese custom, males are preferred over females. When my mother gave birth to two girls, people said she would probably be like my aunt, bearing half a dozen girls before bringing forth a boy.
