Rev. 19:7-8 The bride cleanses herself too. Makes herself ready. Cleans her own clothes. "Clothe herself"!
-Testimony: Pastor Peacock asked God "what should I wear today". God replied: "I'm your Father, not your mommy."
The other day, I read someone saying that only The Holy Spirit can make us a better person. That's lazy Christian theology, that believes that God does everything and we don't have to do anything; and that we can't do anything! It's childish BABYlon theology that believes that we can't do anything!
Ephesians 5:25-27 (Page 209) God cleanses us some at Passover/baptism and ongoing as we continue to repent. But we are responsible to stay clean (live holy) and to learn how to clean ourselves too by removing dirt/leavening/sin and by praying, etc.
Remember at Mount Sinai that God told the people to clean themselves before meeting God later for receiving the commandments and entering into that marriage covenant.
-The Holy Ghost is what is needed to help us, not only The Holy Spirit.
Must not deny The Holy Ghost which is the portion/part of God that rose from the dead and dwells inside of the truly saved baptized people. The Holy Ghost is connected to the human soul, having been born as the Son of Man. The Holy Spirit portion of God never was born or died. Although there's a small measure of The Holy Spirit in all life via the presence of life, but that measure doesn't save. The Holy Ghost is required. The Holy Ghost shows a 2 way relationship. A blending of God and mankind. God and man work together on our salvation and how good we are and what we can accomplish.
But The Holy Ghost doesn't do all of the changing. We must do our part.
-Repentance is on your part. So is all of the following:
reading the bible, praying, fasting, praising, being thankful, being obedient, fearing God, exercising, proper diet, studying,
treating people right, doing your part, doing works, following God, putting God first.
Philippians 2:12-15 (Page 212) Work out your salvation with fear and trembling, although God is also working in us. It's a relationship. It's both ways. Not a one sided relationship!
3:2 Not related to sermon, but just something note worthy for continued teaching. The Apostle Paul calls the people who teach requirement for circumcision "dogs". Jesus and Paul often insulted people for their sins and foolishness, contrary to popular BABYlon thinking.
Passover Prep: Be planning on eating up, using, giving away or storing bread leavening before sunset April 26.
-Also plan your "Night to be Much Observed" celebration for April 27.
-Read again the Passover article and Unleavened Bread article include bread recipe.
-Second chance Passover May 25.
