JESUS says, “If a man love ME, he will keep MY WORDS [MY commandments]: and MY FATHER will love him, and WE will come unto him, and make OUR abode with him [in him]. He that loveth ME not keepeth not MY sayings [MY commandments]: and the WORD which ye hear is not MINE, but the FATHER’S which sent ME” (John 14:23-24).

“And hereby we do know that we know HIM, if we keep HIS commandments. He that saith, I know HIM, and keepeth not HIS commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth HIS WORD, in him verily is the love of GOD perfected: hereby know we that we are in HIM” (1 John 2:3-5).

In Exodus 20:6, GOD told Moses that HE shows mercy unto thousands of them who love HIM and keep HIS commandments. This promise of GOD to us is also found in Deuteronomy 5:10.

After GOD’S miraculous deliverance of the nation of Israel from slavery in Egypt, Moses said, “Thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy GOD: the LORD thy GOD hath chosen thee to be a special people unto HIMSELF, above all people that are upon the face of the earth. The LORD did not set HIS love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people: But because the LORD loved you, and because HE would keep the oath which HE had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Know therefore that the LORD thy GOD, HE is GOD, the faithful GOD, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love HIM and keep HIS commandments to a thousand generations; And repayeth them that hate HIM to their face, to destroy them: HE will not be slack to him that hateth HIM, HE will repay him to his face” (Deuteronomy 7:6-10).

In Deuteronomy 6:4-5, it is written, “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our GOD is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy GOD with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.” People who attempt to love the LORD with all the heart, soul, mind, and strength will find it impossible without first entirely surrendering their lives to GOD. This is accomplished by repenting of your life of sin, believing all of the WORD of GOD, and doing what the WORD says.1

JESUS said, “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. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the SPIRIT is SPIRIT” (John 3:5-6). “The natural man receiveth not the things of the SPIRIT of GOD: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Corinthians 2:14). Once you are born of the SPIRIT of GOD, the power will enable you to fully love the LORD and walk in holiness as HE requires.2

You will have to count the cost first and be willing to separate from the things of this world that are not of GOD.3 “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath CHRIST with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of GOD with idols? for ye are the temple of the living GOD; as GOD hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their GOD, and they shall be MY people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the LORD, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a FATHER unto you, and ye shall be MY sons and daughters, saith the LORD ALMIGHTY” (2 Corinthians 6:14-18).

You must be completely immersed in the HOLY SPIRIT. JESUS stated to HIS disciples, “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the COMFORTER [the HOLY SPIRIT] will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send HIM unto you” (John 16:7). After JESUS rose from the dead, HE “commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the FATHER, which, saith HE, ye have heard of ME. For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the HOLY SPIRIT not many days hence” (Acts 1:4-5).

Before JESUS was taken up into Heaven before their eyes, HE told them, “Ye shall receive power, after that the HOLY SPIRIT is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto ME both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth” (Acts 1:8). This came to pass on the day of Pentecost. “Then Peter said unto them [those who witnessed this outpouring of the SPIRIT], Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of JESUS CHRIST for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the HOLY SPIRIT. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our GOD shall call” (Acts 2:38-39). This promise is ours as well.

JESUS said, “It is the SPIRIT that quickeneth [that makes alive]; the flesh profiteth nothing: the WORDS that I speak unto you, they are SPIRIT, and they are life” (John 6:63). So, after being born again, you grow in spiritual strength by receiving the WORD of GOD through searching and studying the Scriptures and meditating on the WORD. This will renew your mind.4

The Apostle Paul wrote, “That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after GOD is created in righteousness and true holiness” (Ephesians 4:22-24). Then you will have the ability through the LORD to give your whole self to GOD and walk in holiness as the LORD desires.5 GOD can then use you to reach out to the lost souls of the world with the truth so they, too, can be saved and find peace with GOD.6 We are commissioned to be ambassadors of GOD to the world (2 Corinthians 5:18-21). JESUS said, “Herein is MY FATHER glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be MY disciples” (John 15:8). Bringing souls to salvation is GOD’S command to all believers, which glorifies the LORD.

Without being immersed in the HOLY SPIRIT, “Ye shall have no power to stand before your enemies” (Leviticus 26:37). CHRIST’S righteousness is transferred into you when you have surrendered your spirit, soul, and body unto JESUS.7 Again, we receive power after GOD’S HOLY SPIRIT, which is our COMFORTER, dwells within us. When we are given GOD’S power for obedience, it is no problem or struggle to have joy and comfort, even in tribulation and persecution.8 The HOLY SPIRIT will lead you, teach you, and show you things to come (John 16:13).

All things are possible when GOD and HIS SON by the HOLY SPIRIT are living in us.9

When talking to the SPIRIT-filled Christians, the Apostle Paul, by the HOLY SPIRIT, said, “So then they that are in the flesh [unsaved] cannot please GOD. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the SPIRIT, if so be that the SPIRIT of GOD dwell in you. Now if any man have not the SPIRIT of CHRIST, he is none of HIS. And if CHRIST be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the SPIRIT is life because of righteousness.  But if the SPIRIT of HIM that raised up JESUS from the dead dwell in you, HE that raised up CHRIST from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by HIS SPIRIT that dwelleth in you” (Romans 8:8-11).

“Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the WORD of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by MY SPIRIT, saith the LORD of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6). Micah tells us, “But truly I am full of power by the SPIRIT of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin” (Micah 3:8). Under the Old Testament, prophets were given the SPIRIT of power to accomplish GOD’S will, but now under the new covenant, all believers have the fullness of the SPIRIT of GOD constantly dwelling within them and working through them.10

Throughout HIS WORD, GOD states that we must be perfect to enter Heaven. The devil’s people, especially his ministers (the fake Christians), say this is impossible. However, GOD never commands us to do anything that is impossible to do. GOD says that it is possible if you live in the HOLY SPIRIT. JESUS said, “All things are possible to him that believeth” (Mark 9:23). If we break one commandment, we’ve broken them all (James 2:10). That’s why you must get in the power—the SPIRIT—now and remain there!

Being a part-time Christian is not enough. JESUS said, “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of MY mouth” (Revelation 3:15-16).

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of GOD, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto GOD, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of GOD” (Romans 12:1-2).

GOD gave HIS all for us. We are required to do the same for HIM.12 The rewards in Heaven for eternity will far outweigh all persecution we must go through for the LORD in this short life.13 “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which GOD hath prepared for them that love HIM” (1 Corinthians 2:9).14
Start your new life and receive salvation now by saying this prayer to GOD:


My LORD and my GOD, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of the living GOD. 2 I believe that HE died on the cross and shed HIS precious blood for the forgiveness of all my former sins. 3 I believe that GOD raised JESUS from the dead by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT 4 and that HE sits on the right hand of GOD at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart, and I invite YOU into my heart, LORD JESUS. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that YOU shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 YOU will not turn me away, LORD JESUS; YOU will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because YOUR WORD, the Bible, says so. 8 YOUR WORD says that YOU will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that YOU have heard me, and I know that YOU have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as YOU command and sin no more.11

After salvation, JESUS said to be baptized, fully submerged in water, in the name of the FATHER, and of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT.12 Then study the King James Version Bible, and, for your benefit and the benefit of others, do what it says.13

CHRIST and GOD the FATHER now live in you through the HOLY SPIRIT. There is a way you can receive a fuller portion of the divine nature of GOD in you. The more the divine nature of GOD lives in you, the more you will be able to stand against the temptations that have so easily moved so many millions of Christians away from salvation. Pray for the baptism in the HOLY SPIRIT.14 For instructions on how to receive the baptism in the HOLY SPIRIT and to receive more of GOD’S holy nature, ask for our literature or call. For without holiness, no man shall see GOD (Hebrews 12:14).

If you want the world saved, as JESUS commands, then don’t rob GOD of HIS tithes and offerings. GOD said, “Will a man rob GOD? Yet ye have robbed ME. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed THEE? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed ME, even this whole nation [and this whole world]. Bring ye all the tithes [a ‘tithe’ is 10% of your gross income] into the storehouse, that there may be meat [Spiritual food] in MINE house [souls saved], and prove ME now herewith, saith the LORD of HOSTS, if I will not open you the windows of Heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of HOSTS. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of HOSTS” (Malachi 3:8-12).
