MY BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT - MY TESTIMONY

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

"Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it" (Zechariah 12:2-3).

"There is definitely healing in the atonement, in direct opposition to the carnal assertions of the Cessationists, who have not the Holy Spirit, and who know nothing of his ways, yet healing in the atonement is also not in the manner of healing in the way the Charismatics and Pentecostals pervert it, who likewise have not the Holy Spirit, and who likewise know nothing of his ways, not of the true Holy Spirit of the Bible, the Spirit of Christ. But we do, however, have plenty of examples of how healing in the atonement actually works in the Scripture, such as the following passage, which gives us the precise mechanics of how healing in the atonement is actually deployed by those who are filled with the Spirit and walking perfectly before God: "And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother's womb, who never had walked: The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, AND PERCEIVING THAT HE HAD FAITH TO BE HEALED, Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked" (Acts 14:8-10). Paul, by the Spirit, was able to discern that the man possessed that supernatural faith which is required in order for God to work. This is also how Jesus operated when he was in the flesh, albeit Jesus also possessed the ability to give supernatural faith to whomsoever he pleased, whereas neither Paul nor Peter nor John nor any other man or angel in existence can do the same, but must rather depend on the Father and Jesus to dispense that faith, that supernatural faith, and then by the Spirit the believer may discern it and thereby act according to the Spirit's leading, as Paul did above. That is what healing in the atonement is, and nothing less. And the dispensing of faith - supernatural faith - is the key. As a man, Jesus alone possessed this unique ability to dispense supernatural faith whenever he willed, as he himself testified: "For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will" (John 5:21). This quickening is simultaneous with the reception of supernatural faith. This quickening, which is the very life of Jesus himself, is the seed that infuses and sprouts this supernatural faith. When a man born of the Spirit, who is walking perfectly before God - that is, walking without known, unconfessed sin, and with a wholesome prayer life, a prayer life by which he has acquired POWER in the Spirit, for the kingdom of God is not in word, but in POWER (1 Corinthians 4:20) - observes and by the Spirit discerns another person who by God has been given faith to believe, supernatural faith to believe savingly, or faith to be healed, supernatural faith to be healed miraculously, so that that believer himself is spontaneously led by the Spirit to speak the words of saving faith or healing faith to that person by the POWER of the Holy Spirit, then - and only then - is biblical salvation or biblical healing manifested and deployed. The key is supernatural faith, supernatural faith bestowed by Jesus Christ upon whomsoever he will. This is healing in the atonement, exactly as with Paul above. This is how Jesus operated when he was in the flesh. That is, Jesus observed and discerned those whom the Father had given faith to, and upon those persons Jesus operated. When Jesus perceived that the Father had not given supernatural faith to a man, then Jesus didn't operate on that man, such as in his own home town of Nazareth, as it is written: "And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them" (Mark 6:5). Jesus grew up in Nazareth, and so most of the people were offended by him for claiming to be the Messiah, for they had known him all their lives, and thus such people were not given supernatural faith by God from above, so Jesus did not operate on them. Of course, Jesus could have bestowed supernatural faith on them by himself, but Jesus never operated outside of the will of his Father, and that's why the Scripture declares that he could do no mighty work there, because his Father had decreed that no supernatural faith be bestowed on those people. This is what Jesus meant when he said: "Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works" (John 14:10). Jesus possessed perfect discernment when he was in the flesh, and he could tell when the Father had bestowed faith and when he hadn't, when it was the Father's will to heal someone, and when it wasn't. In that vein, so later on did Peter and James and John and Paul and other mature believes in the Holy Spirit acquire this same type of supernatural discernment. And so does this supernatural discernment continue to this day in those who are born of the Spirit and mature in his ways. This is healing in the atonement, and the key is faith, supernatural faith, faith bestowed from above, supernatural faith bestowed from above, by the Father and the Son and the Spirit. Those who deny this are either unregenerate themselves, or woefully ignorant and immature of the Holy Spirit and his ways. But make no mistake about it: there is healing in the atonement, even as it is written: "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed" (Isaiah 53:5). The key is faith, supernatural faith, bestowed directly by Jesus from above. If you want water, you go to the man who dispenses water. If you want faith, you go to the man who dispenses faith."

"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.)."

"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...
