You need to acknowledge in your heart and say it with your mouth that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He died for your sins on the cross and all the sins of the whole world, was buried, rose again from the dead on the 3rd day, to reconcile us to God the Father. He took our sins on Himself as a living Sacrifice and gave up His life for us. "He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe in the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him." John 3:36 Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord. Acts 3:19 Open your heart to Jesus. He loves you. He is waiting for you to come to Him with a repentant heart. Will you choose Him today?

Being filled with The Holy Spirit means One allowing The LORD (The Holy Spirit) to help them, guide them, direct them, control them, counsel them and comfort them.
All those who Submit and Surrender their life to The LORD in Repentance for the forgiveness of their sins through the Blood of The LORD Jesus Christ will automatically be filled with The Holy Spirit; that is a promise of The LORD. This is captured in the Book of John 3:8which is written as follows: ‘“The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”’
For they shall have indeed Surrendered themselves before The LORD for Cleansing, Cleaning, Refining, Washing, Purification and Sanctification as the Temple of The Holy Spirit. What remains then, is the eventual manifestation of The gifts of The Holy Spirit (as is determined by The Holy Spirit). What also follows are The Fruits of The Holy Spirit. But one has to be very carefully (through the help of The LORD) that indeed they bear fruits worthy of Repentance (The Fruits of The Holy Spirit).
Meaning that it is possible to grieve The Holy Spirit by returning to sin. The LORD God Almighty who had sent to us the Helper (The Holy Spirit) can then also take Him (The Holy Spirit) away; if we Sin and refuse (fail) to Repent of our Sins. This is very powerfully captured in the Book of Ephesians 4: 30-31 which is written as follows: “‘And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.”‘
The “Seal” is to Repentance (for the forgiveness of sins through the Blood of The LORD Jesus Christ), Righteousness, Holiness, Truth and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ. It is not a “Seal” to a Lifestyle of Sin. The Seal is for the Day of Redemption (The Day of Rapture) when only those who have walked in Righteousness and Holiness and hence have The Holy Spirit will be Raptured into Heaven. If one was Born-again, and has now returned to a lifestyle of sins, and has refused to Repent and Return to The LORD, the “Seal of Redemption” will not be upon them.
Only those who have The Holy Spirit will be Raptured into Heaven; meaning that those who do not have The Holy Spirit will not be Raptured into Heaven. In other words, those who have returned to a lifestyle of sin, and have refused to Repent will not be raptured.
How can the Holy Spirit be taken away? One may ask. If we go back to a lifestyle of sin and refuse to Repent of our sins, The Holy Spirit will be taken away from us. King David returned to Sin, and once he came to his Spiritual “senses” he Repented before The LORD and asked The LORD to have mercy on him, even as he pleaded with The LORD not to take His Holy Spirit away from him. Don’t say that: “scenario of Holy Spirit being taken away” used to apply only in the Old Testament times. Sin is Sin before God, whether it was during the Old Testament Days, or during The New Testament Days. This is very powerfully captured in the Book of Psalm 51:11 which is written as follows: “‘Do not cast me away from Your Presence, And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.”‘
Furthermore, The LORD promises us that the Helper (The Holy Spirit) that He was going to give us was ONLY going to abide with us forever, as long as we (individually) keep His commandments (meaning; as long as we don’t return to a lifestyle of sins). This is very powerfully captured in the Book of John 14: 15-18 which is written as follows: ‘“If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.”’
“Once Saved Always Saved” (O.S.A.S) is a False Doctrine. It is a doctrine of spiritual laziness and lack of Accountability & Responsibility. It is a compromised doctrine aimed at accommodating a lifestyle of Sin. It is a doctrine aimed at encouraging what is described in the book of Proverbs 26:11 which is written as follows:‘“As a dog returns to his own vomit, So a fool repeats his folly.”’
The warning of The LORD to this same false doctrine of Once Saved Always Saved (O.S.A.S) is very powerfully captured in the Book of2nd Peter 2: 17-22 which is written as follows: ‘“These people are springs without water and mists driven by a storm. Blackest darkness is reserved for them. For they mouth empty, boastful words and, by appealing to the lustful desires of the flesh, they entice people who are just escaping from those who live in error. They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity—for “people are slaves to whatever has mastered them.” If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and are overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. Of them the proverbs are true: “A dog returns to its vomit,” and, “A sow that is washed returns to her wallowing in the mud.”’
Being Born-again comes with Responsibility and Accountability: The Responsibility and the Accountability to walk in Righteousness, Holiness, Truth and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ; in Preparing the Way for The Kingdom of The LORD God Almighty in Heaven.
The Eternal salvation that The LORD Jesus Christ promises to His Faithful Sons and Daughters; is exactly that, to His faithful and Obedient Sons and Daughters. Obedient and Faithful; not the Backslidden, who refuse to Repent of their sins. If one backslides, and refuses to wake-up (through the prodding/help of The Holy Spirit; who by the way, gives freewill to everyone) and (refuses to) come back to their Spiritual “senses” then they shall have Fallen. So, Once Saved Always Saved Doctrine (which is a False and Deceptive Doctrine) does not apply to such a person. The LORD will always give room and time for such a person, that such a person may see how far he/she has fallen, and Repent in earnest (before it is too late), otherwise The LORD removes (takes away) The Holy Spirit (The Lampstand) from such a person. This is very powerfully captured in the Book of Revelation 2: 4-5 which is written as follows:‘“Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent.”’
The same is also powerfully captured in the Book of Hebrews 5:8-9, wherein The LORD is speaking about the Obedient & Faithful Sons and Daughters, not the Backslidden (who refuse to Repent). This is written as follows: ‘“Though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered. And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him.”’
The LORD is also referring to the Obedient and the Faithful Sons and Daughters when He says the following as written in the Book of John 6: 39 ‘“This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day.”’
I know the proponents of “Once Saved Always Saved” Doctrine always like “hiding” under (behind) John 6:39 as they misinterpret it to fit into their false doctrine. It is now uncovered and unveiled.
SHALOM!!! SHALOM!!! SHALOM!!!
1st Corinthians 12: 4-11 ‘“There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to anotherprophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.”’
Galatians 5:22-23 ‘“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.”’
Mathew 3:7-8 ‘“But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, “Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance.”’
John 6: 35-40 ‘“And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst. But I said to you that you have seen Me and yet do not believe. All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”’
PREPARE THE WAY FOR THE COMING OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IN ABSOLUTE REPENTANCE, RIGHTEOUSNESS, HOLINESS, TRUTH AND COMPLETE SURRENDER TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (YESHUA/YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH). TIME IS ABSOLUTELY OVER; THE MESSIAH JESUS CHRIST IS IMMINENTLY COMING TO PICK HIS BRIDE!!!
I acknowledge today that you are LORD and Savior of all mankind,
and today I have recognized my shortfall,
I Repent and turn away from all Sin.
Please cover me with your Precious Blood,
and establish your Word in my life,
that I may be found in Righteousness and Holiness
and write my name in your Book of Life
and baptize me with the power of the Holy Spirit
in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
Your Brother in Christ Jesus and a Shepherd of The LORD,
