Reader,

1.) Christianity is so very simple.

"The simplicity that is in Christ'..

"Christianity is found In Christ"

"Jesus is Salvation".

So, all Christianity is, is to find Him.....as He is Christianity and we Join Him by "New birth"...born again = Spiritually.

"its by MY Spirit, sayeth the Lord".... (not by water, not by works).

Then there is the Gospel, and there is only one, and we are all called to share it with everyone who needs it, and that is everyone who isn't born again.

2.) Once you become a part of God, as "born again Spiritually" which God causes, ((only because We Trusted in Christ as that is HIS requirement,)) then He then removes our sin, it's cleansed by the Blood of Jesus that makes it GONE.... and then... now being made free from sin, God joins His Spirit with ours and our Spirit is born again, and this is to become a "new Creation"...

This is not hard to understand.... but it could be more clear.

Its not hard to understand that Jesus came to deal with our sin that is separating us from God, and once Jesus Deals with it ALL, God can then take us, and make us His own. And because "God is A Spirit", we become God's own by becoming born again Spiritually.

Its just so simple, this plan of Salvation.

3.) God is Holy, and we are not, and so, God has to deal with the issue that is defining us as SINNER., that is separating us from God.
That's 2 things.
One, we were sinners, and its the Law that defines us as Sinners, ..
So, Jesus lived under the law, and fulfilled it on our behalf, and when we go to the Cross, believing in Christ.... then God takes what Christ has accomplished, both by living a perfect life, and dying for our sin, and applies it to us...as our REDEMPTION.
The application of the righteousness of God, is "imputed righteousness"... its literally the Righteousness of Christ that becomes US, and Christ on the Cross becomes our SIN.

"God hath made... JESUS.....to be SIN,...for...US, so that we might become the Righteousness of GOD, in HIM"...

4.) This is the "Divine Exchange." or the "Great Exchange".., and its both Divine and Great.

Our Sin, our sinful life, becomes Christ's body and death, and His Righteousness and His Holy and pure LIFE, becomes ours and that is us becoming a "new Creation" IN CHRIST".... born again... Spiritually.

See, none of this is really difficult to understand, but trying to explain it, can become too CHRISTIANESE, too "bible nomenclature".. and that causes it to be heard as "what is all that".

What Paul's Gospel does, is bring it into ultra focus, by making it simple.

"Your a sinner, your sin is separating you from God, ... and Jesus died for your sin" "BELIEVE IT"... "All that believe in Jesus shall be saved".

See?
On basic sentence, vs..trying to "bible it"... or explain it, or theologize it.

5.) And here is an interesting verse that Paul wrote., regarding what ive just been doing for you reader..

I just ""preached the CROSS"" for you.. = Paul's Gospel

Notice.. 1 Corinthians 1:21

"""It pleased God, by the foolishness of PREACHING... to SAVE.... THOSE ... THAT Believe"""..

And what is that Preaching? = "The preaching of THE CROSS....is the Power of GOD...unto Salvation, for everyone who BELIEVES"..

How about that..
That is "The Gospel of the Grace of God' and its "Paul's Gospel" that Jesus personally Gave to Paul.

A.) Me , you, us, all.....we can simply tell an unbeliever about The Cross Of Christ, that is God's love for them.. that is Jesus dying for all their sin...., and God will show them why to BELIEVE IT.

One can NEVER trust in God unless they know him in their spirit first....God does bring us initially to believe in Jesus, but to truly know him, our spirit must be Born Again...

We can only know about God via His witness who births our spirit into His, it’s a Living supernatural/ spiritual birth, that only God can do via His Spirit....mind Blowing!!!...Spirit gives birth to spirit.

It’s imperative that we are “ Born Again “ our spirit is in Christ, not our human intellect and understanding.

The human intellect can NEVER trust in Christ, they don’t know him in their spirit, ....you can only trust in God when he gives you the gift of Faith / makes our spirit Born Again via His Living Holy Spirit.

We are Born Again in our spirit not our intellect....just as Gods written word says without His Spirit we are none of His.

Ephesians 2​

New International Version​

Made Alive in Christ​

2 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. 3 All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh[a] and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. 4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 6 And God raised us up with Christand seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved,through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Jew and Gentile Reconciled Through Christ​

11 Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called “uncircumcised” by those who call themselves “the circumcision” (which is done in the body by human hands)— 12 remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
14 For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility,15 by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, 16 and in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. 17 He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near.18 For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.
19 Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. 21 In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. 22 And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.

"My Sheep Know My Voice" - Bible Meaning of John 10:27. The sheep recognize the voice of the shepherd, the one who feeds them, guides them, and protects them. The sheep have learned to trust the shepherd. As a shepherd ensures the safety of his sheep, Jesus shields his people from everlasting damage. Chris Swanson



Discernment is a spiritual gift given by God through the indwelling Holy Spirit. Believers receive discernment by reading and meditating on the Word of God and through the renewal of the mind. The Bible teaches believers to seek discernment in order to grow in wisdom, understanding, and knowledge of spiritual truth.

In the same way that repentance is granted by God (Acts 11:18; 2 Tim. 2:25), faith is also a supernatural gift of God. Ephesians 2:8–9affirms this: “By grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.”

1 Corinthians 12-14

King James Version

12 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.
2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.
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.
4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
14 For the body is not one member, but many.
15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.
19 And if they were all one member, where were the body?
20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.
21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.
22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:
23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.
24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked.
25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.
26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?
30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?
31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

faith is also a supernatural gift of God.

This is Calvins lie.
One of them.
All, His disciples teach it..
And, As you progress into the depths of this Satanic theology, you'll find more of his Theology that you'll present, for as long as a forum puts up with it.
Some have already prevented you, because you kept on with the SAME RANT, 20, 30 times a day, sometimes more, on Threads that were not related to your one obsessive point.
The would warn you, and you would do it MORE., because it feels good to your flesh, to do this..
You dont learn from your past, so you are destined to repeat it.
History proves that.

So, Everything is time, related.

The gift of faith enables believers to rise above pressures and problems that might otherwise cripple them. Faith is characterized by an unshakable trust in God to deliver on God's promises, no matter what. The gift of faith inspires those who might be tempted to give up to hold on.
