MY BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT - MY TESTIMONY

THE REILIABILITY OF THE BIBLE - A SHORT DEMONSTRATION 

"Jesus could have easily settled the question of his Godhood and Messiahship by appearing to his killers right after his resurrection. Indeed, had Jesus marched into the temple at high noon on that Sunday resurrection day, showing himself alive before the eyes of the Sanhedrin and the soldiers of Pilate and the screaming crowds that had cried out for his execution, the whole world would have known that Jesus is the Messiah. But the Scripture states unequivocally that Jesus confined his appearances strictly to his disciples, to those few people who had believed in him before his crucifixion (Acts 10:41, et. al.). And so it is today. Jesus currently manifests himself only to his elect, even as he testified beforehand (John 14:21-23). The false Jesus of modern professing Christianity may be fawning and fretting about trying to make converts, but the true Jesus of the Bible is not the least bit concerned about it. The true Jesus of the Bible is not the least bit concerned about bringing his elect into his fold, as he himself testified (John 6:37). For not one single soul that the Father gave to Jesus from the foundation of the world will fail to come to Jesus, to come to Jesus savingly, exactly as Jesus said, for the true Jesus of the Bible saves whom he will, when he will, where he will, just as easily as he turned a mad and raging Saul into a gracious and believing Apostle called Paul, without even breaking a sweat. Likewise, the true Jesus of the Bible continues to save every single soul he pleases just as effortlessly as he saved Paul. There are no exceptions, for whoever Jesus decides to save, he orchestrates the means whereby it is accomplished (John 5:21, John 6:44, et. al.). John Bunyan in his treatise, Christ A Complete Saviour, knew this truth just as personally as I do, and just as personally as Paul and every other genuinely born again Christian everywhere on the planet and in heaven knows it: "The reason why men are so careless of, and so indifferent about, their coming to God, is because they have their eyes blinded, because they do not perceive his glory. God is so blessed a one, that did he not hide himself and his glory, the whole world would be ravished with him. But he has, I will not say reasons of state, but reasons of glory, glorious reasons why he hideth himself from the world, and appeareth but to particular ones."  Modern professing Christianity is wholly without the Holy Spirit and consequently knows nothing of this truth, nor of what Jesus really meant when he testified about how FEW will actually be saved, comparatively speaking (John 7:14, Matthew 22:14, et. al.). But those who have actually experienced the baptism of the Holy Spirit in the supernatural resurrection miracle of the new birth do know. Intimately. Just as Jesus manifested himself only to a few after his resurrection, so Jesus manifests himself only to a few today, to his elect few, and so accordingly will only a few be saved, precisely as the true Jesus of the Bible so emphatically testified. Reading the Scripture or hearing a sermon and having the lights go on suddenly is not a manifestation of Jesus. Not even close. Not even remotely. Jesus manifests himself by the Holy Spirit, just as he did throughout the book of Acts, and no other way. Turning to a belief and faith in Jesus wasn't enough for the Samaritans. Peter and John had to come down from Jerusalem and pray for them to receive the Holy Spirit before they were genuinely born again (Acts 8:14-17). Nor will it be enough for you, for that example of the Samaritans is a warning from the true Jesus of the Bible to all, so that there will be no excuse, and thus unless you likewise receive the Holy Spirit, supernaturally, miraculously, just like in the book of Acts, no matter how much you profess faith in Jesus, nevertheless, apart from the supernatural baptism of the Holy Spirit, Jesus will himself disown you in the day of judgment, and you will not set foot in his kingdom (Matthew 7:22-23, Romans 8:29, et. al.). Friend, the blood of Jesus is applied only by the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and no other way (Titus 3:5, 1 Corinthians 12:13, Ephesians 4:4-5, et. al.). Accordingly, if you have peremptorily ruled out the supernatural actions of the Holy Spirit similar to the way he operated in the book of Acts, by replacing the Holy Spirit with the written word perhaps, which is the habit of most denominations today, or if you have become prostituted in your mind by modern counterfeits of the true Holy Spirit of the Bible, which is also the habit of many groups today, so that if these words above therefore don't bother you in the slightest, then your presumption and arrogance due to the hardness of your heart and the callousness of your ears and the blindness of your eyes may very well have already sealed your fate for all eternity. Truly. For as Bunyan also knew and also stated, this world is overflowing with people who have already passed their day of grace. Wait and see if the Lord Jesus wasn't accurate when he stated categorically that only a FEW find the strait gate (Matthew 7:14). Yes, wait and see, if  you dare. On the other hand, if these words greatly trouble you and make you terribly uncomfortable, then there is perhaps hope for you yet. Jesus may very well perhaps hear you when you cry to him from your heart of hearts, and thus fulfill his promise to manifest himself to all whom the Father has given him from the foundation of the world."

"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...
