    What Is The New Birth | Regeneration | Being Born Again – Spiritual Reading

    What Is The New Birth | Regeneration | Being Born Again – Spiritual Reading. Many speak of the New Birth or of Regeneration without any definite conception of just what the New Birth is, and so are never sure whether they themselves have been born again or not. As plain and clear a definition of the New Birth as we can find in the Word of God is given in 2 Pet. 1:4, “Whereby he hath granted unto us his precious and exceeding great promises; that through these ye may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world by lust.”  From these words of Peter it…

    What Are The Results Of The New Birth And What Follow’s When One Is Born Again – Spiritual Reading

    What Are The Results Of The New Birth And What Follow’s When One Is Born Again – Spiritual Reading. 1. The first of these results is found in:  1 Cor. 6:19, where we read: “Know ye not that your body is a temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have from God?” These words were spoken to believers, to regenerated men, and they plainly tell us that when one is born again, the Holy Spirit comes to take up His permanent dwelling in the man and that the man who is born again thus becomes a temple of the Holy Spirit. It is true that we may not always be…

    What Is The Importance Of The New Birth | Regeneration | Being Born Again – Spiritual Reading

    What Is The Importance Of The New Birth | Regeneration | Being Born Again – Spiritual Reading. For just a few moments let us look at the necessity of the New Birth. This is set forth in one of our texts and in the verses following, 1 John 3:5, 6: “Verily, Verily, I say unto you, except a man be born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit.”  We see here that the New Birth is a universal necessity, and we see why it is a…

    What Is The Fact Of The Resurrection Of The Body Of Christ And Our Bodies – Spiritual Reading

    What Is The Fact Of The Resurrection Of The Body Of Christ And Our Bodies – Spiritual Reading. Turn first, please, to II Tim. 2:8, “Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David, was raised from the dead, according to my gospel.” Here Paul explicitly declares that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead according to the gospel which he preached. Now what was raised? Certainly not His soul. That did not die. Turning to Acts 2:27-31, we find that the soul of the Lord Jesus went into Hades, the abode of the dead. These are Peter’s words, spoken on the day of Pentecost, there recorded, “Because thou wilt not leave my soul unto…

    What Will Be The Character Of Our Resurrection Bodies – Spiritual Reading

    What Will Be The Character Of Our Resurrection Bodies – Spiritual Reading. 1. First of all, we know that the body which is raised will not be exactly the same body that it was when it was laid in the grave. This appears from I Cor. 15:35-38: “But some will say, how are the dead raised? And with what manner of body do they come? Thou foolish one, that which thou thyself sowest is not quickened, except it die: and that which thou sowest, thou sowest not in the body that shall be, but a bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other kind; but God giveth it a body even…

    When Will The Resurrection Of The Body Take Place – Spiritual Reading

    When Will The Resurrection Of The Body Take Place – Spiritual Reading. There remains but one question to be considered and we can deal with that very briefly. That question is, when will the resurrection of the body take place? This question is plainly answered time and again in the Bible. For example, it is answered in Phil. 3:20, 21: “For our citizenship is in heaven; from whence also we wait for a Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall fashion anew the body of our humiliation, that it may be conformed to the body of his glory, according to the working whereby he is able even to subject all things unto himself.” …

    What Is The Existence, Nature, Character, Work And Destiny Of The Devil – Spiritual Reading

    What Is The Existence, Nature, Character, Work And Destiny Of The Devil – Spiritual Reading. 1 John 3:8: “The Devil Sinneth.” The Bible doctrine concerning the Devil, his Existence, Nature, Character, Work and Destiny is a fundamental doctrine of the Christian faith, and is of vital importance. The teaching of the Bible on this subject is not a mere matter of theory or dogma. It is a matter of most practical every day importance. Experience shows that if men are in error in regard to this subject, they are pretty sure to be in error on other questions that are fundamental. When men and women begin to question the existence of a…

    What Is Sanctification And Being Set Apart – Spiritual Reading

    What Is Sanctification And Being Set Apart – Spiritual Reading. In the first place let me make it clear that, Sanctification is not the “Baptism with the Holy Spirit.” The two are constantly confused. There is an intimate relation between the two, but they are not at all one and the same thing; and only confusion and misconception can arise from confounding two experiences which God keeps separate. That Sanctification is not the baptism with the Holy Spirit and that the baptism with the Holy Spirit is not Sanctification, will become clear as we proceed and find out from a study of the Bible just what Sanctification is. In the second place,…

    How Can You Be Sanctified And Set Apart – Spiritual Reading

    How Can You Be Sanctified And Set Apart – Spiritual Reading. 1. The first part of the answer is found in our text of this chapter:  I Thess. 5:23, “And the God of Peace himself sanctify you wholly and may your Spirit and soul and body be preserved entire, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” It appears from this verse that God sanctifies men, and Sanctification is God’s work. Both the separation of men from sin and their separation unto God, is God’s work. As it was God who in the old dispensation set apart the first-born of Israel unto Himself, so it is God who in the new dispensation…

    How To Be Victorious And Triumph Over The Devil – Spiritual Reading

    How To Be Victorious And Triumph Over The Devil – Spiritual Reading. Now just for a few moments let me show you from the Word of God, how, in practical every day life, to get the victory over the Devil. There are four things to be borne in mind. 1. Read first: James 4:7, “Be subject therefore unto God: but resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” This teaches us that, we are first of all to surrender to God and then to resist the Devil and that, if we do resist him, for all his cunning and power, he will flee from us. Although the Devil is strong, it is ours…

    Feeding And Drinking – Miracles, Signs And Wonders Done By Jesus. Jesus helps the disciples to catch a great number of fish When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.”5 But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.” 6 And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking. 7 So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled…

    The Power Of Your Words To Create Good Or Bad

    The Power Of Your Words To Create Good Or Bad Words have power immeasurably. They have the ability to change situations and destinies. Words can create or destroy. Words can give life or they can kill. King Solomon perfectly illustrates it with the phrases below: Death and life are in the power of the tongue,And those who love it will eat its fruit.  Proverbs 18:21 He who guards his mouth preserves his life,But he who opens wide his lips shall have destruction.Why else did God give us the senses which many people keep abusing continually? Why do folks think God also provided us the Bible?Words have power.  Proverbs 13:3 A…
