~John 8:47 He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
~Romans 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
~John 3:5-7 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
Let God’s Word speak for itself. If you go to church and follow the church rules, yet you disregard what the Word of God, the Bible, teaches, you must question if you are a child of God. The Bible teaches that it is not following rules or man’s teachings that will get you to Heaven. One must be born again! The Holy Spirit enters one’s heart at that point and lives within him. One is then born of the spirit and the water of the Word, the Water of Life!
~Revelation 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
