The Time is Here Once Again
Upon entering a Christian church service at Christmas time of the year, or at Easter.
The consensus with preachers, is that this is the time of the year that people will go to church.
A general message is given of coming to Jesus, of becoming a Christian.
Year after year, it’s generally the same themes are played out, over and over.
You’ll see the same church types of Christmas, Easter, etc. programs.
I sort of think that for most people, it generally is a time that brings its sadness, a melancholy of how of past events had been. I know that in parts of my life that it is so.
However, we cannot dwell on the past, or of things that others have decided to do.
Or either by the family, friends, neighbors, or work place associates.
The greater truth for me this year is that those who say they are Christians, those that go to church, and of how they justified their ideals about God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
There is only one Protestant Christian Bible Old and New Testament.
All Protestants commonly say they are Christians, and they believe the Bible.
The very same Protestants state they believe in the words spoken and recorded by Jesus, the Apostles, and Evangelists within the Protestant Christian Bible New Testament.
This is the “PROTESTANT TRADITIONS.”
To repeat, each year with all good intentions.
They, under the Protestant Denominations Umbrella,
state they believe and practice ONLY the Bible TRUTHS.
However, when you go to each of these groups and read their formalized, and up to date doctrines, about each major doctrines of the New Testament.
A person soon realizes their doctrines oppose each other, on just about every point.
Except for ONE! They all say they believe in Jesus.
(Note: the Devil believes in Jesus also.)
I have- over the past 40 years- talked with many, throughout the Unites States, Southeast Asia, and most recently Mexico.
I’ve talked with Animists, Buddhist, Hindoos, American Indians, Catholics, Protestants, Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, Moonies, Spiritualists, Communists, Atheist, Deists, (deists are actually atheist).
The White Robed People, these white robbed folks believed they are the actual reincarnation of Jesus, the Apostles, and Evangelists they lived in the deserts of the San Joachim valley in California U.S.
All of these groups NEVER SAY NEGATIVE THINGS ABOUT JESUS!
They all, without exception, give praise to him in one way or the other.
Today, for the most part, people know of the story where Satan tries to tempt Jesus.
So even Satan, wanted this Jesus to be his follower.
Generally speaking, the religions of the world-to some degree- say nice things about Jesus.
The Question is why are Missionary people like me, as well as other Christians saying, to these religions, “TO ALL” those mentioned above and to all others, of their need to repent?
What is it exactly that these, that think and believe they are Christians, who are good, have morals, are law abiding citizens of the world.
What do they need to turn away from that is so evil?
Why are these, the great majority who say they Christians, and those of other religions, for the most part. Why are they all doomed to Jesus’s eternal judgments?
Their rewards, the condemnation of Hell as their eternal resting place.
Jesus is God. The God-man Jesus who now is in His glorified human physical body, that’s at the right hand of God the Father in Heaven.
The Holy Spirit is now upon the earth. (We can read in the Protestant Christian Bible New Testament of how to rightly understand this Spiritual Substance that we call God.
Jesus in His pre-incarnate state created all that we know of. In His pre-incarnte state, created all known universes. Jesus recorded, in His Protestant Christian Bible New Testament writings of His prayers the the Father in Heaven, Jesus states of How the Holy Spirit was sent to the earth after His Death, Burial, Resurrection
Why is the Holy Spirit here on the earth?
Helping all humans to understand this Spiritual Substance known as God.
Jesus made a very simple statement to a very good pious religious man named Nicodemus. Jesus stated that to be His Follower, to become a Believer, to have Christ Jesus within one’s life, a person had to be
“SPIRITUALLY BORN AGAIN”
by the Holy Spirit of God.
From the Protestant Christian Bible New Testament Book of John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
The question arises.
Can man originate is own rebirth? The answer is NO.
Can man be ceremoniously through some religious ordination be spiritually born again? The answer is NO.
Can man make some sort of pledge, promise, commitment, and then be spiritually born again? The answer is NO.
Man can do NOTHING to BECOME SPIRITUALLY Born Again?
The Answer, is YES, Yes, man can do nothing to be spiritually born again.
If man cannot originate, nor instigate his or her, young or old spiritual rebirth, then how is it done?
If I want to join a group, or an organization, I have to meet their requirements.
It is the same with secret societies, or the Elks, Kiwanis, etc.
It is the same with Religions.
They all have a mission statements, of what they intend to do within a society etc.
I heard someone say, that just because you go to MacDonald’s every day, that does not make you a hamburger.
It is the same with any religion or church group, just because you attend doesn’t make you a Christian.
When talking of a spiritual experience, every other person on this planet, can give you their interpretations of what they think that means.
You have two leading lines of thought.
Number one, that through a combination of established religious rituals one can have a spiritual experience.
Number two, that if a person performs enough good acts, that they will gain some sort of higher, or an uplifting spiritual elevation of some sort.
The main force behind these two, and many others, is the force of one’s will, that seems to give one, a sense of fulfillment.
Men, all men, were created by God.
Man disobeyed God, and man had to suffered the consequences of His and Her deliberate willful disobedient actions.
God gave man the hope of being set free from evil and its desires.
Man had a choice to believe for that to happen. Or, not to believe it was going to happen.
In the Past, All the world choose to not believe God, except Noah’s family. All others, were killed by the world-wide flood.
Humanity started again, by believing in God’s promise of the one to come that will defeat evil and sin. Defeat sin-which tries continuously to dominate mankind.
The Jewish people were chosen by God, to bring forth this Savior of the World, the Messiah.
Jesus, the Messiah, was rejected by the Jewish people, as the Savior of the World. Jesus was cast aside by the Jewish nation.
Very few people, in the days of Jesus, and those within the first century of Christendom became spiritually born again, compared to the world population.
Two thousand or so years later, now in 2015.
Much hasn’t changed.
One truth is central, the greatest part of the world’s population do not fear God. And, as it was in the days of Noah, the people of today think they can make their god in any fashion that they believe.
Man has created many religious denominations, and has made their own rules, as to what to do according to their own and created ideals of how they want their god to be like.
All of today’s religious denominations have one thing in common.
By their Christian verbal and stated doctrines, they all, without exception reject the core central truth of Salvation by Grace alone.
Justification by the atoning blood of Jesus and Jesus alone.
They all (with a very few exceptions) reject repentance.
Repentance is the turning of one’s life to obedience of the words spoken by Jesus, the Apostles, and Evangelists within the Protestant Christian Bible New Testament.
The Question is how do you know the true Christian verses the religionists?
Many will say that only God will judge and He, God, is the only one that knows one’s heart.
This is a Lie brought forth by Satan.
If one were to believe this “Lie”, then you could rationalize that those who wrote the Protestant Christian Bible Old and New Testament, their hearts weren’t right. And, the only way to know who really is the truly spiritually born again Christians can only be known by God. So the lie escalates into can the Protestant Christian Bible Old and New Testament be believed as being divinely inspired?
They, that believe the Lie, think that know one can know someone else’s heart.
The truth is easily understood, one that is truly spiritually born again has only one desire, and that is to do the will of the Father in Heaven. God’s Will in Heaven is that all humans will accept the Atonement of His Son Jesus who is both God and Man, and through Jesus’ selfless, sinless life offering of Himself, for the redemption of all humanity.
That whosoever will understand, make the decision of repentance, a life turned to God, and to obedience of the spoken words by Jesus, the Apostles, and Evangelists within the Protestant Christian Bible New Testament alone for life’s daily Guide.
These alone, are the Disciples of Jesus,
“The Spiritually Born Again Christians.”
