Jesus, the son of God was born holy and filled with the Spirit

Jesus was born "holy"...Luke 1:35...therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

Jesus was filled with the Spirit "without measure" from birth...John 3:34...For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him

Jesus was led of the Spirit into temptation...Luke 4:1-2...And Jesus being "full of the Holy Ghost" returned from Jordan, and was "led by the Spirit" into the wilderness, Being forty days tempted of the devil.

Jesus was anointed with the Holy Spirit at John's Baptism where the Spirit descended on Him like a dove: after the baptism which John preached;  Acts 10:37,38...How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power:

Jesus was "full" of the Eternal Spirit when He suffered and died in the cross...Heb. 9:14...How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

When Jesus saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him at John's Baptism...He was at the age of thirty which allowed Him according to law (Torah) to minister God's Word. Jesus stated, "Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness"...Jesus was set aside for the ministry...anointed of God and inaugurated into the Priesthood.

Psalm 110:4...The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

Heb. 7:26-28...For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself. For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

God does not blink at sin

God neither blinks at - nor excuses sin or sinful conduct. Man is accountable to God for sin. Christians are responsible to God for every action they take in life.

1 Peter 3:12...For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.

There are many denominations and religions around the world the lead people to believe that sin is OK; or that God blinks when sin is committed. WRONG! When human lust conceives sin is birthed. When sin is committed it separates man from the God of Salvation. (This is why confession is made to God Almighty)

James 1:13-15... Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. Do not err, my beloved brethren.

If you think God blinks at sin you have another thing coming.

1 John 3:8-9...He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin;

God's eyes are on the child of God and they are never closed. The child of God's eyes are to be on Christ and never closed. Sin violates the Law of God and should never be excused. To live right in the eyes of God is the best life you can have on this side of Heaven. Sin grieves God. Your strength and faithfulness makes the Lord happy and joyful.

Nehemiah 8:10...Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.

Denying the Deity of Christ...

In this present evil world there are many religious organizations that deny the Deity of Christ. What is the deity of Christ? The deity of Christ is the fact that He is very God. He was God before He became a man. He was God in the womb of the virgin Mary. He was God in the flesh when He dwelt among us. He is God now in the Throneroom where He rules the heart and life of every child of God!

John 1:1-2...In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.The same was in the beginning with God.

John 1:14...And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,

If anyone ever tells you that Christ sinned...he denies the fact that Christ was God in the flesh. God could never sin nor could Christ ever sin as both are members of the Divine Godhead. Christ was sinless and His sinlessness proved He was very God. God had to become flesh in order to be the Saviour of the world. Without a Saviour there is no forgiveness for humanity.

What proves apostasy in this modern religious world? Denial of Christ being very God. Any religious body that teaches that Christ was a sinful man like you and I... denies the deity of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Any religious body that denies the deity of Christ is a cult. Cults deny the fact that Christ is very God. Any man or religious body that practices or teaches such doctrine is a deceiver that deceives other people.

1 Tim 4:1...Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

Cults are prophetically spoken of in the Bible. Cults turn away from the truth about Christ being God. Cults teach apostasy. God's Word says Christ was God in the flesh.

1 Tim 3:16...And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

Note how the above verse states, "Without controversy" . There is no controversy to the great truth...that Christ is God. Hallelujah!

Genuine Salvation?

A genuinely saved man will not just "quit" wrong to be saved, he we quit wrong because he's saved. He's a new creation made by Christ. He's saved by Grace. He's justified by Grace. He experiences righteousness by faith. Every sin is forgiven and the heart is clean and holy in the eyes of God. There's no more "rejection" of Christ, but acceptance and trust with an everyday consciousness to Christ's Divine presence and authority. There's a transformation made where the clean heart provides a means for the believer to live without sin. I know this state of being is not experienced by everyone, but the fact of the matter is, "Everybody is not genuinely saved".

Genuine Salvation prepares the heart of man for a future Judgment. Every genuinely saved man knows there will be a Judgment day. Every genuinely saved man knows he's saved from wrath of God in Eternal Judgment and every sin is forgiven. A saved man knows holiness of heart and conduct is essential in the life of a believer in Christ. Belief is consent of the human will to God. Belief understands the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross. Belief is enlightenment to the person of a living Christ. Belief brings God's Salvation into the human soul and it becomes a way of life. This is how God prepares a man's heart and soul for the coming of Christ in Judgment. The heart is clean and ready to caught up to meet with Christ in the air. Genuine Salvation causes man to "look" for the return of Christ to call out the Church from Great Tribulation.

It's obvious that genuine Salvation is missed by so many people in this modern religious era. This is so sad and hard for some to acknowledge as the time of Christ's return draws closer and closer. More and more people are turning away from the truth in this fast paced society we live in. The Bible speaks of this unholy crowd. It calls this unholy crowd, "those who perish". Those who perish are deceived by sin as they are overtaken and smothered in unrighteous and unclean living in the eyes of God. Those who perish miss Christ. They reject His love of the truth. They miss the experience of genuine Salvation in a lost world waiting for Christ's glorious return. Because of this unholy and unrighteous state of man...God is going to send upon this crowd that finds pleasure in sin...a strong delusion. This crowd will become so deceived that they become delirious believing in something false. Some even find so much pleasure in their deception they can never come back to God. Their souls are damned for Eternity.

2 Thess 2:10-12...And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Look around today at the people who reject the truth about holiness and right living that only comes from Christ. They reject God's Truth about a Saviour recorded in His Holy Scripture. They reject the fact that Jesus can cleanse the heart from "all" sin. How are these people who are so overtaken with the "deceivableness of unrighteous living" going to be prepared for Christ's coming and His Divine Judgment? What are these people hanging onto? What are these people trusting in? Are these people who are going to perish simply believing in a lie? Yes. This lie becomes so overwhelming that it takes over their hearts and lives. The root of the lie is believing that Christians can continue in sin and live a life in matter what the Bible says. It's happening now! People are so wrapped up in everything but truth, they are consumed and overtaken by the "deceivableness of unrighteousness".

This Salvation I write about is genuine Salvation. Have you got it? If you have, Glory! If you don't have it get it now before its to late. Don't let religion or tradition or human opinion cause you to miss the truth about Christ and Christian living. Get your heart right today through genuine Salvation that comes from Christ our Saviour and Redeemer. Glory! Don't wait! Today is the day of Salvation!
