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.

-Adam Clarke


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.

Wysheid PDF Print E-mail

Wat is 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).  Ons moet kennis van die Heilige hê, hoe meer jy God ken hoe meer sal jy kan onderskei wat sleg is en in groter vrees voor Hom kan wandel.  Wanneer ons Hom dieper ken word ons besef van God se wese groter, en dit dwing ‘n absoluute respek en eerbied teenoor Hom af, en ontbloot selfs die kleinste sondes vir ons.  Hoe meer ons wys word, sal ons alhoe meer onderskeidingsvermoë besit en daardeur ook ahoe meer geestelik volwasse word.

Spr 9:10 Die beginsel van die wysheid is die vrees van die HERE, en kennis van die Heilige is verstand.

Spr 8:13 Die vrees van die HERE is om te haat wat sleg is; hoogmoed en trotsheid en ‘n slegte wandel en ‘n huigelagtige mond haat ek.

Jak 3:17 Maar die wysheid van bo is ten eerste rein, dan vredeliewend, vriendelik, geseglik, vol barmhartigheid en goeie vrugte, onpartydig en ongeveins.

Kosbaarheid van wysheid

Ons moet elke dag bid vir wysheid (Jak 1:5), en waarlik daarna soek. Hier sien ons hoe hoog word wysheid geag deur God, geen aardse rykdom of skatte kan daarmee vergelyk word nie, dit is ‘n lewensboom vir die wat dit aangryp. So mens is gelukkig, hy het lengte van dae, rykdom en eer, lieflike weë en sy paaie is vrede.  Watter wonderlike beloftes vir iemand wat wysheid gevind het!!!

Spr 3:13-15 Gelukkig die mens wat wysheid gevind het, en die mens wat verstand verkry;  want die verkryging daarvan is beter as dié van silwer, en die verwerwing daarvan beter as van goud; dit is kosteliker as korale, en al jou kleinode kan daar nie mee vergelyk word nie.

Spr 3:16-18 In sy regterhand is lengte van dae, in sy linkerhand rykdom en eer; sy weë is lieflike weë, en al sy paaie is vrede. Dit is ‘n lewensboom vir die wat dit aangryp, en elkeen wat dit vashou, is gelukkig.  As ons wysheid bekom sal ons nooit van God se weg afwyk nie, en sal ons Hom behaag en veel vrug kan dra.
