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.

Wysheid

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.

Volle Oorgawe

Rom 12:1 Ek vermaan julle dan, broeders, by die ontferminge van God, dat julle jul liggame stel as ‘n lewende, heilige en aan God welgevallige offer dit is julle redelike godsdiens.

Daar is twee defnitiewe voorwaardes vir ‘n lewe van oorwinning:

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.

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.

WHAT DO I DO NOW?

WHAT GOD HAS DONE FOR YOU

When you received Christ as your Saviour, several things took place in your life.

1. YOU BECAME A CHILD OF GOD.
"But as many as received Him, to them gave He power (or right) to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name." John 1:12.

2. YOUR SINS WERE FORGIVEN.
"To him give all the prophets witness, that through His name whosoever believeth in Him shall receive remission (forgiveness) of sins." Acts 10:43 .

3. YOU PASSED FROM DEATH UNTO LIFE.
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth My word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation but is passed from death unto life." John 5:24.

4. YOU RECEIVED ETERNAL LIFE AS A GIFT.
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23.

5. YOU SHALL NOT COME INTO CONDEMNATION.
"There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit." Romans 8:1.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO FOR HIM

Eternal life is a gift received from God by faith. You cannot buy it, you cannot earn it, neither can you work to keep it. It is all by grace.

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God; Not of works, lest any man should boast." Ephesians 2:8-9.

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

1. YOU SHOULD BE SCRIPTURALLY BAPTIZED.
"And He commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord." Acts 10:48

"Many of the Corinthians hearing be-lieved, and were baptized." Acts 18:8

"Buried with Him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with Him through the faith of the operation of God, Who hath raised Him from the dead." Colossians 2:12

2. YOU SHOULD READ THE BIBLE DAILY (King James Version)
"As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the Word, that ye may grow thereby." I Peter 2:2.

"Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom." Colossians 3:16.

"Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth." II Timothy 2:15

3. YOU SHOULD PRAY DAILY.
"Evening, and morning, and at noon , will I pray, and cry aloud: and He shall hear my voice." Psalm 55:17.

"Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak." Matthew 26:41

"Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God." Philippians 4:6

4. YOU SHOULD CONFESS YOUR SINS DAILY.
"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." I John 1:9

5. YOU SHOULD TELL OTHERS ABOUT CHRIST.
"Ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem , and in all Judaea , and in Samaria and unto the uttermost part of the earth." Acts 1:8

6. YOU SHOULD KEEP YOUR HEART AND THOUGHTS CLEAN.
"If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me" Psalm 66:18.

7. YOU SHOULD ATTEND A BIBLE BELIEVING CHURCH REGULARLY.
"Not forsaking the assembling of our-selves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another; and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching." Heb-rews 10:25.

8. YOU SHOULD WORK FOR THE LORD.
"Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord." I Corinthians 15:58.

9. YOU SHOULD LOOK FOR THE SOON RETURN OF THE LORD.
"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord." I Thessalonians 4:16-17.

Distribute gospel tracts. Go on visitation for your church, attend all the services on the Lord's Day, remember prayer meeting during the week. Give at least a tithe of your income to the Lord. Be a witness for Jesus wherever you are. Put Him first in your life.
