Footprints Toward our Salvation

Ssh! Alas. I have had education as well in university. While at university and fierce turbulence to pave my way in any situation a blend of wide-ranging skills has been my module to succeed in academics, as well as in other disciplines. My ostensibly insights and foreground not only leads me into probing but also guides me on cutting-edge modern day schemes that involve different basics; with these apt and depth of creativity, I often set off heavenly to be the limit. Covering my transition into higher education the principles of a relatively low tone, accuracy couple with a discernible state or any combination thereof greatly distinguishes me among others. Well about everything is to where, and with whom, and also when I will match these traits studied.

That life was only ephemeral as I was bound to my sins from the sole of my feet to the top of my head intact in my heart. With a contrite spirit guilty of the 12 sins, the Ten Commandments as well as the 613 detailed statutes of the Law, I then began my findings to the truth of this burdensome problem of my sins from the saving grace of the promised Word of our Lord; until I met the gospel of the water and the Spirit. All at once these sins got remitted when I believed that Jesus Christ bore our sins on His head by being baptized by John, shed His blood on the Cross, died vicariously on that Cross, resurrected after His dead,  ascended to Heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father and His second advent. These chain of events built my foundation in the gospel of the water and the Spirit. Even so, my future sins plus those committed after being born again of the gospel of the water and the Spirit were also all at once taken care of likewise. It is in my keeping this brief souvenir outline about my novice, before and after being born again of the heavenly gospel of the water and the Spirit. I just wanted to inform you that I myself have not forgotten the episode in my life yet!

But what about if I continue to spill sin and act lowly in my deeds even after being born again of the gospel of the water and the Spirit—that is, born from above, being born-again from the faith in Jesus' shouldering our sins at His baptism by John the Baptist at the Jordan River and His bloodshed on the Cross? Certainly it is very true, too, even with the born-again. Yet, in fact, those born again of the gospel Word of the water and the Spirit drink the water springing up from the fountain into everlasting life given by Jesus Christ in the Lord-spoken Word of the gospel of the water and the Spirit.

Let me illustrate this with what the Bible says. By trying to retreat his ministry, after knowing Jesus as the Messiah to come and the Son of God from the witness in John 1:29-36 and of Matthew 3:17 from God the Father when he passed all the sins of the world by baptizing Jesus and then Jesus accepts and receives His baptism being given by John the Baptist; John the Baptist himself a witness bearing testimony of Him, while he was in prison sends forth all the two of his disciples, namely John and Andrew, whom by then hadn't acknowledged this Messiah and Savior Jesus Christ to properly educate them and to let them to know this Jesus. In order to so on account of that was for them to hear from Him first-hand. To reveal the Lord Jesus to Israel, John the Baptist even said, "He [Jesus] must increase, but I must decrease" (John 3:30). For example, thus, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, clearly was first of all John's disciple, before he followed the Lord after hearing of Jesus' witness by John the Baptist (John 1:40).

The truth is you and I remain insufficient even after being born-again and should never ever be intimidated by such mistakes. But tangible enough is our prayer of confession for these lowly sinful acts of the flesh and insufficiencies to God instead. The Holy Spirit for cert fills in this gap to form a life like a tree with good fruits. Rather than the erroneous prayers of repentance practiced by most Christians nowadays, which parallels the faith of the circumcisionists in the Early Church age.

Aha, this is correct: Do not decide to drop several amauterisms which are handy for the gospel of the water and the Spirit because one can't make it better elsewhere. Why? You can end up doing nothing! Even to believe in the blessed gospel of the water and the Spirit (John 6:29). I repeat the gospel of the water and the Spirit is the authentic Truth. Drop handy amauterisms which are works of the flesh to possess the fruit of the Spirit. You will not end up doing nothing! Amos 3:3 says, "Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?" In other words, like a pig with gold earrings in its ears and a diamond ring in his nose; with these adornments in its huff, does it make it different from a pig? Capital No. It is as it is written, "As a ring of gold in a swine’s snout" (Proverbs 11:22). For it would ordinarily oink and be fed and salvage from the stench of his waste only to be dragged and be slaughtered. Born-again you too become fickle with the dot. But Christ's coming was to fulfill and not to abolish the law, which acknowledges us of our sinfulness. Even so, let's keep waiting as He promised His second coming.

Now, who wants to cork the new footprints, the Truth of the gospel of the water and the Spirit? 'If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink,' says the God of gods and the Lord of all hosts. Hallelujah!
