    PARADOX. Verse 27 ! God will send the Greater than John for our Blessed Lord Christ is Glorfied and seated at His Right Hand in Glory Everlasting Amen indeed. Gods chosen elect Zion will be baptised with the Holy Ghost Speaking in Tongues and once again be united with the Gentile church, throughly purged
  • Bro William
    The evidence of salvation received by the revelation of Jesus Christ is forgiveness and remission of sins. Sin no more lest a worse thing come upon you by accepting the lie that no one born again by the Holy Spirit of God is without sin. "We are all sinners" is not the confession of one who has been delivered from the power of darkness. If any man or woman is a true believer, they "sin no more".

    We don't only believe god exists, but need to believe everything he says. Jesus said we must be born of water baptism by full emersion and of spirit the in-filling of the holy spirit . The evidence of recieving the holy spirit is you will speak in tongues.
