MY BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT - MY TESTIMONY

THE REILIABILITY OF THE BIBLE - A SHORT DEMONSTRATION 
THE MAGIC OF EVOLUTIONISM AND MODERN BIBLES

"...ONE Spirit, ONE Lord, ONE faith, ONE, ONE, ONE baptism..." (Ephesians 4:4-6)
...and ONLY ONE... ONLY ONE... ONLY ONE... ONLY ONE...

"... by the SPIRIT, by the HOLY SPIRIT, by the SPIRIT OF CHRIST... the ONE, ONE, ONE BAPTISM, by the BAPTISM of the HOLY SPIRIT in the supernatural resurrection miracle of the new birth, just like in the book of Acts, and no other way whatsoever, not in this world, not in the world to come... "For by ONE SPIRIT are we all BAPTIZED into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to DRINK into ONE SPIRIT." (1 Corthians 12:13)... so that if your EXPERIENCE doesn't match those in the mini commentaries below, if your EXPERIENCE doesn't match the HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISMS as typified in the book Acts, then you are not born again, you are not saved, and you are not heaven-bound... and you have now been warned..."

"In concert with the previous note posted below this one, Philip, being born again himself, was also easily able to discern when other professing Christians were not born again, for even though many signs and wonders had been done in the presence of the Samaritans by Philip in the power of the Holy Spirit - Samaritans who professed to believe in Jesus, and who were water-baptized in the name of Jesus - yet not one of those Samaritans had been born again of the Holy Spirit theretofore. Rather, the very apostles themselves had to cry out to Jesus in heaven for Jesus in heaven to come down upon them by the baptism of his Holy Spirit in the resurrection miracle of the new birth, precisely as it is so PLAINLY, PLAINLY, PLAINLY written in the Scripture, at least for those who possess even an OUNCE of godly humility and understanding: "But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done. Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John: Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost." (Acts 8:12-17). The condition of the Samaritans before Peter and John came down from Jerusalem and bestowed upon them the new birth in the Holy Spirit by their importunate cries to Jesus, is the VERY condition of ALMOST ALL who profess to be Christians today. Indeed, as those of us who are genuinely born again KNOW, and know infallibly by the Spirit and his written word (for both testify of the paucity of genuine believers during this time of the world), so that hardly a single person who professes to be a Christian today is genuinely born again, has genuinely experienced the baptism of the Holy Spirit in the supernatural resurrection miracle of the new birth. Just wait and see, if you dare. Friend, if you possess an iota of wisdom, you had better believe the true Jesus of the Bible when he says that FEW, FEW, FEW will be saved. (Matthew 7:14, Matthew 22:14, Matthew 20:16, Luke 4:23-27, &c.). As for those who would fecklessly attempt to explain away this passage of Philip and Peter and John and the Samaritans (and many other stunningly clear passages in the Scriptures denoting this very matter), and to thereby ignorantly and arrogantly and rebelliously assert that this event in Samaria simply must have been some sort of special manifestation of the Holy Spirit, and not the real new birth, or some such other foolish, unregenerate, ignorant dodge, well, as I said, those who would attempt to characterize this passage as anything BUT the baptism of the Holy Spirit in the supernatural resurrection miracle of the new birth, indeed, such proud, rebellious fools, uncircumcised in heart and spirit, always resisting the true Holy Ghost, are doing nothing but leading themselves and the fools who follow them into eternal ruin. Headlong into eternal ruin, and the harder their hearts become in this willful rebellion, the less likely they will ever be granted repentance unto life, for the Scriptures couldn't be plainer. Indeed, the Scriptures reveal in stunning brightness, brighter than the noon-day sun (at least for all of us who actually are indwelt by the Spirit), that the Samaritans, prior to Peter and John coming down, and prior to their receiving the Spirit when Peter and John came down, were no more born again, and thus no more saved (Romans 8:9, &c.), and thus no more heaven-bound, than a tortoise. Not even close. Not until Peter and John came down from Jerusalem and by them received the baptism of the Holy Spirit in the supernatural resurrection miracle of the new birth, just like ALL, ALL, ALL who are truly born of the Spirit have EXPERIENCED. There are no exceptions. For a follow-up, see the next mini commentary below." Scott Jones, May 13, 2018 2000 EST

"The false gospel of modern Christianity, fully fleshed out by compromising crusaders and pep-rally pastors of the past seventy-five years, has now become so pervasive that genuine Christianity, which is to say, biblical Christianity, is virtually nowhere to be found. Oh, I am sure that the Lord Jesus still has his seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal, but they are scattered far and wide, hard to find, and almost nowhere to be found within plain sight anymore. You certainly won't find them in any of the demoninational churhes, or in the large church ministeries, or in para-church groups. Especially not in the pulpits. I say, EXPECIALLY NOT in the pulpits. Not even close. Today's Christianity is pure flesh, wholly of the flesh, and nothing but the flesh. If you think otherwise, you yourself need to get born again, for you infallibly are not. You clearly are not able to plainly discern the difference between flesh and Spirit because you yourself have never truly experienced the baptism of the Holy Spirit in the supernatural resurrection miracle of the new birth, similar to the numerous examples of people receiving the Holy Spirit and being born again in the book of Acts. As a quick aside, the unregenerate perpetually cry out in studied horror when a regenerate person like myself calls out others for being unregenerate. That's because they themselves don't have the first clue as to matters of the Holy Spirit. For example, ofttimes in regard to this matter they protest that no one can know another man's heart. Apart from that being radically untrue in many cases, yet I don't have to know another man's heart to know whether or not he's regenerate. All I have to know is whether or not that man is indwelt by the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:9), and knowing that is a cakewalk for those of us that are truly born of the Spirit, especially for those of us who have been given the gift of discerning spirits. That's the primary reason the gift of discerning spirits was given in the first place. (1 Corinthians 12:10). To know whether or not another person is truly born again, so that that person may be warned, just as Paul warned the unregenerate disciples when he arrived in Ephesus, for Paul was immediately able to discern that those disciples were not indwelt by the Holy Spirit, and thus not truly saved, and so he warned them, and so they were born again. (Acts 19:1-6). Like I said, a veritable cakewalk for those of us that are truly indwelt by the Holy Spirit, and who possess the gift of discerning spirits. Friend, the book of Acts was not given by God merely as a history lesson for later centuries. Rather, the book of Acts was given by God as an EXAMPLE that Christians are to follow and imitate, given by God to SHOW HIS PEOPLE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE SAVED! AND NOTHING LESS! Accordingly, all who fall short of the examples in the book of Acts will have no excuse in the day of judgment. That is why professing Christians who never actually experience the baptism of the Holy Spirit in the supernatural miracle of the new birth will be judged more harshly than most of the rest of the world, for they had the infallible testimony right there before their eyes, and they professed to study it, yet instead of humbling themselves and crying out to Jesus importunately for him to bestow upon them the new birth according to the actual practices of the Holy Spirit in the book of Acts, thereby bringing their experience up to the level of the Scriptures, rather than bringing the Scriptures down to their pathetic lack of experience, they instead explain it all away, justifying their pathetic lack of experience instead of justifying the Scripture, and thereby rationalize the sacred testimony of the Holy Spirit in the book of Acts into nothing but wisps of smoke from a bygone era, and thus so will their salvation be in the day of judgment... nothing but wisps of smoke for all the remaining eras of eternity, for they possess not one iota of Holy Spirit EXPERIENCE as plentifully exemplified in the book of Acts. Not so much as an iota, which ALL, ALL, ALL who are genuinely born of the Spirit do. There are no exceptions, as Jesus HIMSELF testified: "...so is EVERY ONE that is born of the Spirit... THOU HEAREST THE SOUND THEREOF... so is EVERY ONE that is born of the Spirit." (John 3:8). Just like the book of Acts. EXACTLY like the book of Acts. Friend, dismiss the book of Acts and its doctrines and examples to your own eternal ruin... or don't... rather, believe that Jesus meant what he said about MANIFESTING HIMSELF to his true disciples (John 14:21-23, ad infinitum), just as he MANIFESTED HIMSELF throughout the book of Acts in every case where somebody was indewlt by and given the Holy Spirit, beginning at Pentecost. Believe this, and credit the truth and substance of those Scriptures which testify of these things, seeing the examples in the book of Acts as signposts (for that is what they are, all pointhing to an encounter with Jesus HIMSELF by his Spirit), and then cry importunately for the manna from heaven to come down. Just like in the book of Acts, for Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8)." Scott Jones, May 11, 2018 1800 EST

RECENT QUOTATIONS

"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... Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water AND OF THE SPIRIT, he CANNOT enter into the kingdom of God... The wind bloweth where it listeth, AND THOU HEAREST THE SOUND THEREOF, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is EVERY ONE that is born of the Spirit." John 3:3-8

"If you have been genuinely born again in the supernatural resurrection miracle of the New Birth then no amount of evolutionary teaching or "science" or "proofs" can cause you to lose your faith or stop you from believing wholeheartedly in Jesus Christ... not in any way, shape or form (John 10:28-29, et. al.). It simply isn't possible, as all who have been genuinely indwelt by the Holy Spirit know, and know infallibly (Ephesians 1:13-14, et. al.). There are no exceptions. None. None whatsoever (John 3:8, John 10:14, John 10:27, et. al.). If, on the other hand, you can doubt that Jesus Christ is Lord, if you can doubt that Jesus Christ is Saviour, if you can doubt that Jesus Christ is real, if you can doubt that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh (1 John 4:2-3), then you have never been genuinely born again in the supernatural resurrection miracle of the New Birth, a genuine New Birth which is similar in experience to the numerous examples of the New Birth experiences demonstrated in the book of Acts, beginning at Pentecost, for unless your supposed New Birth experience is similar - similar, not necessarily exact, but necessarily similar, necessarily supernatural - absolutely, utterly, irrevocably, unmistakably supernatural - so that unless your supposed New Birth experience is similar to the numerous New Birth experiences demonstrated in the book of Acts - for in every place in the book of Acts where you read about someone receiving the Holy Spirit, beginning with those at Pentecost, there you are witnessing the New Birth, for these are all examples of the New Birth experience, and nothing less (and any man or woman who teaches otherwise openly prosecutes the murder of souls, wittingly or not) - so that, unless your supposed New Birth experience is similar to the numerous New Birth experiences demonstrated in the book of Acts, then you are not currently heaven-bound. You have been warned (Romans 8:9, et. al.). Whoever will go to heaven, therefore, let him hear, and let him consequently persevere in crying out to Jesus - not to the Father, not to the Spirit - but to Jesus HIMSELF (Matthew 28:18, John 5:21-23, Luke 3:16, et. al.) - yes, to Jesus HIMSELF, so let him persevere in crying out to Jesus HIMSELF until Jesus HIMSELF hears from heaven and HIMSELF rewards you with the supernatural New Birth experience, similar to the numerous New Birth experiences in the book of Acts, thereby washing your sins away and giving you eternal life (for it is only in the supernatural New Birth experience that the blood of Jesus is applied to a soul, and no other way - Titus 3:5), so that unless this occurs, unless your experience matches the Bible's experiences in the supernaturalness of it, in the supernaturalness of the New Birth experience, similar to the numerous New Birth experiences in the book of Acts, then you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven, for many are called, but few are chosen (Matthew 22:14, Matthew 7:14, Matthew 20:16, et. al.)." Scott Jones, October 11, 2015

"Have they that shall be saved, faith? Why, they that shall not be saved may have faith also; yea, a faith in many things so like the faith that saveth, that they can hardly be distinguished, though they differ both in root and branch... Saving faith hath Christ for its object, and so may the faith have that is not saving... Saving faith is wrought by the word of God, and so may the faith be that is not saving. Saving faith looks for justification without works, and so may a faith do that is not saving. Saving faith will sanctify and purify the heart, and the faith that is not saving may work a man off from the pollutions of the world, as it did Judas, Demas, and others. Saving faith will give a man tastes of the world to come, and also joy by those tastes, and so will the faith do that is not saving. Saving faith will help a man, if called thereto, to give his body to be burned for his religion, and so will the faith do that is not saving. Saving faith will help a man to look for an inheritance in the world to come, and that may the faith do that is not saving... Saving faith will not only make a man look for, but prepare to meet the bridegroom, and so may the faith do that is not saving... Saving faith will make a man look for an interest in the kingdom of heaven with confidence, and the faith that is not saving will even demand entrance of the Lord... Saving faith will have good works follow it into heaven, and the faith that is not saving may have great works follow it, as far as to heaven gates... Now, then, if the faith that is not saving may have Christ for its object, be wrought by the word, look for justification without works, work men off from the pollutions of the world, and give men tastes of, and joy in the things of another world - I say again, if it will help a man to burn for [long for, confidently desire] his judgment, and to look for an inheritance in another world; yea, if it will help a man to prepare for it, claim interest in it; and if it can carry great works, many great and glorious works, as far as heaven gates, then no marvel if abundance of people take this faith for the saving faith, and so fall short of heaven thereby. Alas, friends! There are but FEW that can produce such for repentance; and [yet possess] such faith, as yet you see I have proved even reprobates have had in several ages of the church... The discerning of the heart, and the INFALLIBLE PROOF of the truth of saving grace, is reserved to the judgment of Jesus Christ at his coming... to this Searcher of hearts is the time of INFALLIBLE discerning reserved, and then you shall see how far grace that is NOT SAVING hath gone; and also how FEW will be saved indeed." John Bunyan, The Strait Gate

Saving grace is that grace - that saving grace - which is "according to the faith of God's elect" (Titus 1:1)... yes indeed, it must be nothing less than "the faith of God's elect", even SUPERNATURAL FAITH, SAVING FAITH, and not fleshly faith, not carnal faith, not damning faith, not the natural faith you were born into this world with, but SUPERNATURAL FAITH, SAVING FAITH, given DIRECTLY AND SUPERNATURALLY from above by Jesus HIMSELF (Ephesians 2:8, et. al.), even in a supernatural moment and experience of time, and no other way, just like in the book of Acts, where nothing less than "the faith of God's elect" was bestowed supernaturally to all upon whom it fell in the numerous New Birth experiences demonstrated throughout the book of Acts, beginning at Pentecost (Acts 2:2-4, Acts 8:14-17, Acts 10:44-46, et. al.) - for it is ONLY in the supernatural New Birth experience that SUPERNATURAL FAITH, SAVING FAITH, is given, is conferred, and no other way - and thus, it was only that SUPERNATURAL FAITH which correspondingly wrought effectually in all the elect persons upon whom it was bestowed, even that very same SUPERNATURAL FAITH, that SAVING FAITH, that "faith of God's elect", that those elect persons throughout the book of Acts received supernaturally on the spot as they persevered in crying out to Jesus HIMSELF (Luke 3:16, et. al.), and consequently therefore...

"...unless your experience matches the Bible's experiences in the supernaturalness of it, in the supernaturalness of the New Birth experience, similar to the numerous New Birth experiences in the book of Acts, then you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven, for many are called, but few are chosen (Matthew 22:14, Matthew 7:14, Matthew 20:16, et. al.)..."

ONE BAPTISM

"There is one body, and ONE SPIRIT, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, ONE BAPTISM... but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall BAPTIZE you with the Holy Ghost and with fire... one Lord, one faith, ONE BAPTISM... for by ONE SPIRIT are we all BAPTIZED into one body... one Lord, one faith, ONE BAPTISM... [Jesus said to the disciples a few days BEFORE Pentecost] but ye shall be BAPTIZED with the Holy Ghost not many days hence... one Lord, one faith, ONE BAPTISM... for by ONE SPIRIT are we all BAPTIZED into one body... one Lord, one faith, ONE BAPTISM..." (Ephesians 4:4-5, Luke 3:16, Ephesians 4:5, 1 Corinthians 12:13, Ephesians 4:5, Acts 1:5, Ephesians 4:5, 1 Corinthians 12:13, Ephesians 4:5).

The BAPTISM of the Holy Spirit - the ONE BAPTISM of the Holy Spirit - beginning with Pentecost, as Jesus HIMSELF testified, along with the numerous remaining examples throughout the book of Acts - the ONE BAPTISM - the ONE TRUE BAPTISM - the ONE BAPTISM of the Holy Spirit, such as began at Pentecost, as Jesus HIMSELF testified, where each elect soul is BAPTIZED into ONE BODY by ONE SPIRIT in the ONE BAPTISM - so that the ONE BAPTISM of the Holy Spirit is the EXACT EQUIVALENT - I say, and the Holy Spirit HIMSELF says, and the Scriptures do INFALLIBLY say - that the ONE BAPTISM of the Holy Spirit, which began at Pentecost, as Jesus HIMSELF testified, where each elect soul is BAPTIZED into the body of Christ by the ONE SPIRIT in the ONE BAPTISM, precisely as happened at Pentecost, and precisely as happened throughout the book of Acts following, so that the ONE BAPTISM of the Holy Spirit is the EXACT EQUIVALENT of the NEW BIRTH, and NOTHING LESS. Deny that, obfuscate that, rationalize that, nuance that away, to your own eternal ruin, for it is written...
