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.

"We are never so high as when we are on our knees..."

Testimony - Wian Gerber Print E-mail

Dit is altyd vir my wonderlik om te vertel wat die Here Jesus vir my kom doen het. Ek is gebore in sonde soos almal op aarde gebore is . Ps. 51:7 Kyk, in ongeregtigheid is ek gebore, en in sonde het my moeder my ontvang.

In baie opsigte kan ek nie se soos baie Suid Afrikaners sê ek is in ‘n godsdienstige huis gebore nie. Nee ek is in ‘n evangeliese christelike huis gebore , in ‘n sending familie. Ek  het vandat ek kan onthou gereeld gehoor ek moet die Here Jesus aanneem as my Verlosser en Koning. Ek het ook gehoor dat as ek nie Jesus in my lewe het nie ek eendag in die Hel sal eindig.

Ek het vroeg in my lewe al bewus geword van die Here  en dat hy my soek om my te red. Ek was drie jaar oud toe ek by my eerste kinderdiens reeks wat ek bygewoon het besef het ek het die Here Jesus nodig in my lewe. Ek het reageer om die Here Jesus aan te neem maar ek was nog nie oud genoeg om alles te verstaan nie. Ek het wel van toe af bewus gewees van die Here Jesus wat met my praat.

Dit was eers agt jaar na die kinderdiens reeks dat ek werklik met die Here Jesus ontmoet het. By my eerste jeugkamp het ek onder ‘n diep sonde besef gekom en het die Here Jesus het my gewys hoe ek lyk in Sy oë met my eie geregtigheid maar vol sonde. As gevolg van wat die Here Jesus my gewys het was ek vir drie maande in diep berou en ‘n erg sonde besef. Ek het in die tyd die Here begin soek vir redding.

By my tweede jeugkamp het die lig deurgebreek en het ek die wonderlike sekerheid gesmaak wat Hy belowe en gee vir die wat Hom soek met hul hele hart. Dit was wonderlik om te weet dat  ek  weet dat  ek weet ek is NOU Sy kind en my sonde is vergewe en my skuld uitgedelg. Joh. 3:8 “Die wind waai waar hy wil, en jy hoor sy geluid, maar jy weet nie vanwaar hy kom en waarheen hy gaan nie. So is elkeen wat uit die Gees gebore is.”

My lewe het radikaal verander. En al was ek ‘ n soet seuntjie en al het ek nie regtig lelike dinge gedoen nie. Ek was ‘n sondaar  ‘n kind van die duister en nou het ek ‘n bloed gewaste geword ‘ kind van die lig.2Kor 5:17 “Daarom, as iemand in Christus is, is hy ‘n nuwe skepsel; die ou dinge het verbygegaan, kyk, dit het alles nuut geword.”

Ek was van nature skaam en het nie graag voor mense gepraat nie. Niks van mondeling gehou nie. En self die eerste keer net na die Here Jesus my gered het en ek op die kamp getuig het , het dit nie eintlik geklink of ek gered geword het nie. Dis hoe bang ek was dat  ek skoon deurmekaar gepraat het.

Maar toe ek die Maandag by die skool kom het ek vir die eerste van my klas maats vertel dat  ek die Here Jesus die naweek wat verby is in my lewe ingenooi het. Ek het hom vertel dat  ek nou ‘n kind van die Here Jesus was. Dat Jesus my sonde weg gewas het met sy bloed. Ek het ook nie lank na dit in ‘n Engelse mondeling vertel wat met my gebeur het en dat ek vir die Here Jesus gaan werk eendag.  Rom. 10:9 As jy met jou mond die Here Jesus bely en met jou hart glo dat God Hom uit die dode opgewek het, sal jy gered word;

Maar die Wonderlikste van alles is nie dat Hy my gered het nie maar dat  ek nogsteeds Sy stem hoor en Hy met my praat. Ja , dat  Hy nog vanoggend met my gepraat het. . . . .
