6. Holy Spirit’s witness and leading.
The Spirit of God must bear witness in you and with your spirit that, now, you are a child of God. He must bear witness with you that your sins are now forgiven you. This, in fact, is what will spring up the Joy of salvation inside you.
If the Holy Spirit has not borne witness with you concerning your new birth, please, check yourself. Without Him, you cannot give your life to Jesus Christ in the first place, He is the One that will witness to your heart that will convict you of your sins after listening to a message of salvation from the preacher. He is the One that will encourage you to answer the alter call. 1 Corinthians 12:3.
1 Corinthians 12:3
3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.
After leading you to the Lord, Jesus Christ, the Holy Ghost will also testify to you that you are now a child of God and must also be leading you accordingly.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
These two activities of the Holy Spirit are confirmation of our new birth.
7. Forsaking of Sins.
8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:
2 Timothy 2:19c
19 …………… And, Let everyone that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
The primary reason you gave your life to Jesus is that you may be able to forsake your sins and live a godly life. If you say you give your life to Jesus and you are still continuing in your smoking, fighting, fornication, ungodly dressing and other works of flesh, it may be that you really have not become born again. It must be noticeable by the people around you that you have become a totally godly person in your dressing, talking, eating, thinking and so on.
8. Concentration on Heavenly Treasure.
Once you become born again, you must consciously begin to be heavenly conscious above everything in life. You must seek the kingdom of God above everything the world can offer.
Mathew 6: 19-21
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
If your heart is always about building treasures in this world, and you barely think of heaven and the coming of the Lord, you may have backslided or may not be genuinely born again, at all.
9. Leading Others to Jesus (Evangelism).
No one genuinely encounters the Lord, Jesus Christ, and keeps quiet about it. How can you keep quiet of the spiritual opening of eyes, turning from darkness to light, from power of satan to God, forgiveness of sins, joy of salvation, and witness of the Holy Spirit that all fall suddenly upon you like a torrential rain. Let us look at a few people who encountered Jesus in the scripture and tell others of their encounters with him.
1. Samaritan woman, (John 4:1-28).
28 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,
2. Apostle Phillip, (John 1:43-45)
45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.
3. Apostle Paul testified to King Aggripa, (Acts 26:12-19)
19 Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision:
This is what the Lord, Jesus Christ, calls the First Love. If you have stopped witnessing Jesus to others, you may be backsliding gradually.
4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
Return to evangelism.
10. Forsaking of Worldliness.
4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
Worldliness is the trademark of all who have not been born again. Check yourself for signs of worldliness.
You need to check your salvation before the trumpet sounds. If you are not sure of your salvation. Go back to Calvary for a fresh encounter with Lord.
Any one born of through intercourse is flesh and such a person cannot enter the Kingdom of God which is a spiritual kingdom. To enter such a kingdom, you need to be born of the Spirit of God. This is the whole essence of the new birth. You need to be born again, now, and be sure of your salvation before the rapture takes place.
1. Lord, Jesus Christ, let me have a fresh encounter with you today.
2. Holy Spirit, lead me to Calvary and wash me deep- inside and outside.
3. Lord, Jesus, forgive me all my sins and write my name in the book of life.
4. Lord, give me the grace to bear all the fruits of repentance.
5. Lord, fill me with the Holy Spirit and the Joy of Salvation.
Are you an elect of Christ? Are you truly saved? Are you on the narrow road? Do you want to make the rapture/heaven? If your answers are yes, then,
• Make all efforts to heed the warnings of Jesus Christ.
• Be watchful. Pay attention to what is happening around the World and see whether they match what the scriptures say.
• Be filled with the Holy Spirit and be in the Spirit all the time.
• Fast, consecrate yourself, run away from sin and worldliness.
If your answers are NO, then you can repent today. Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. Kindly sincerely and faithfully pray the prayer of repentance below and make a determination never to commit sin again.
Prayer Of Repentance
Lord, Jesus Christ, I am sorry for all my sins. I confess them with my mouth and I ask for mercy. Please forgive me and wash me in your blood. I accept you as my personal Lord and Saviour. Write my name in the book of life. Give me power over sins and fill me with your Spirit and Joy of Salvation. When rapture trumpet sounds, let me make it. Thank you for saving me. In Jesus name, I pray.
Begin to read bible. Begin with the book of John. Pray always. Fast regularly (you can begin with once in a week). Look for a bible believing church where they teach repentance, holiness, salvation and fellowship with them. Pray before you go. Always run away from SINS.
