I will make this as simple as I can,to make it to take up the least amount of time. We either repent of our wicked inherited ways from Adam who lost his anointing of the Holy Spirit that was the union with God and man, beings God is a Spirit seen in Jn.4:24 and we do as Jesus said in Jn 3:3-8 or we too will never be regenerated as required in scripture; there is only two scriptures in the KJV that calls out for man to be regenerated, Mt.19:28 where Jesus talks to the disciples who are soon to be apostles after their awakening or re-birthing called being born-again; also called regeneration by Paul in Tit.3:1Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work, 2To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men. 3For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. 4But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 5Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; 6Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; 7That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. 8This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.
We either live according to the word of God which cleanses us as seen in Jn.15:3 and walk as Jesus walked as called out in Jn.14:6 or we do not come to the Father who lived and worked in Jesus Christ as seen in Jn.14:7-9 for He doeth the works and is greater than the flesh of Jesus, for the flesh is nothing and was created for the sacrifice of the giving of the blood of the Holy Spirit seen in Ac.20:28 which purchased us; if we will accept Jesus and walk as He walked; which is our commandment to do as seen in Mk.8:34-38 or we are none of His yet still unless we receive our regeneration of His Spirit in us as seen in Ro.8:9! That is the only way we can then become perfect as required of God seen in scripture Gen.17:1 and again in Mt.5:48 because God changes not, Mal.3:6 and unless we stay to His words that have been recorded for us in His Holy Bible all of them as called out to us in 2 Tm.3:16-17 or we are not walking in the word of God and not worshipping in Spirit and in Truth as called out for in Jn.4:23-24 and we then will be found out to be liars if we do not walk as Jesus walked as required in 1 Jn.2:1My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 2And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 3And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
We are instructed to give up this flesh and quite allowing it to dictate to us how we are conducting ourselves, we are to live according to the given word of God to us and remove the lusts of the flesh out of our lives; but with man this is impossible; that is why we must be born of the water and of the Spirit because the Spirit of God is the power of the HIGHEST seen in Lk.1:35, and only then can we do what Jesus said to the adulteress and that was to go and sin no more! Just as Jesus told the cripple in Jn.5:14 or a worse thing will come upon you and we all know what that means! With man this is impossible but not when God is living on the inside of you; then and only then do all things become possible for them who are really the children of God seen in Jn.8:47 for only they obey the word of God in their lives! Only they know who Jesus is because He has revealed Himself to them as seen in Mt.11:27; and only they of a pure heart will see God in Jesus reconciling the world unto Himself by Jesus who is God in the flesh seen in 1 Tm.3:16 and who is God with us seen in Mt.1:23 who was shown to us in the days of old by Isaiah in Is.40:3 which John the Baptist fulfilled in Mt.3:3! John the Baptist prepared a way for God! And only when we understand who God is can we truly worship God in Spirit and in Truth, when we know who He is and He must be revealed to us by the Holy Spirit who is the very mind and will of God, which is called out in 1 Cor.2:1-16 otherwise you will never be able to judge the spirits seen in 1 Jn.4:1 unless we understand the word of God by the very one who had it written seen in 2 Pt.1:20-21; who is the very same spirit as seen in verse 19 here who was shown to us by Peter in 1 Pt.1:9-11 who is the Day Star in 2 Pt.1:19! Who is the Morning Star seen in Rev.22:16: It takes all scripture working together put together by God in a proper order in order to understand the mysteries of the Holy Bible seen in Is.28:9-12 or you end us as those in verse 13 here who have received the word yet are fallen backwards because the have not the only interpreter who can bring the scripture to them in the correct order, here a little there a little, line upon line, precept upon precept in the correct way that only God can show you because He had it written for our salvation; from Gen.1:1 to Rev.22:21 it is all about reuniting mankind with his God and about your God coming to live inside of you seen in 2 Cor.6:14-18, which Jesus even said Himself in Jn.5:39; just that simple; we either return to God with us, Mt.1:23 or we perish being in our will; which it seemeth to be right but is the way of death, Prov.14:12 and Prov.16:25!
Only by being justified in the word of God, Ro.3:4 can we be righteous and set apart for His use only if we have a pure heart can we then be used as His vessel, 2 Tm.2:19-22 and we cannot do that unless we are found bringing the true gospel of Jesus Christ as Lord and the Christ seen in Ac.2:36 and who is LORD of ALL (Ac.10:36) seen in a very good book to emulate if we truly want to be saved as Cornelius was as the Apostles were and had the same signs as well; look to verses 44-48; Cornelius had received the Same Holy Spirit with the same signs given in the first place that it was received in Ac.2:1-4, which testified to the council that Cornelius had received just what the apostles had received in the upper room, seen in Ac.11:15-18 which is the repentance of God which is to destroy, wickedness which this world is, seen in 1 Jn.5:19 and to remove sin for Him forever by cleansing Him a peculiar people who are zealous of Good Works which is obedience to His every Word to us or we are not perfect in the only eyes that matter and that is His and we will be found a liar worshipping an idol of god that we have made up in our minds (1 Jn.5:21), which man is trying to do more each and every day by getting us away from the only book that can bring Eternal life to us which is the words of God when we use them in faith believing; we can believe all day as the demons do in Jms.1:19! Belief is not going to save anyone, it is when you put your beliefs in action that it then becomes faith (Lk18:7-8) that is required in Jms.2:1-ff’s. Unless we are found picking up our weaker brothers can we to be found walking in Jesus’ shoes, Mk.8:34-38 which is required if you are going to be a disciple and call yourself by His name, you must be Christ like to be a Christian or you only bring greater condemnation on your eternal soul because we all know how Jesus feels about hypocrites seen in Matthew Chapter 23!
Jesus said if we will keep His saying we will keep the apostles doctrines as well seen in Jn.15:20 and that is exactly how the church of God in Jesus Christ was born on the day of Pentecost shown in Ac.2:38-40 and with many more words did Peter exhort to them, it takes being baptized in Jesus name before Salvation can come, that is how the blood of remission of sin is placed, for there is no other name given by which we must be saved according to scripture, Ac.4:12 and again in Col.3:17 we must be buried in likeness called out in Ro.6:4 and Col.2:12; this is the new age covenant to be seen as justified by the name and by the baptism of the Holy Spirit seen in 1 Cor.6:11! Or you are not saved yet still according to scripture and the word of God!
