The gospel of the water and Spirit

  1. The gospel of the water and Spirit

    I know that my topic is long , but this what you gonna read now will change your life forever !!!
    I would like to explain the gospel of the water and Spirit and I also would like to explain what John meant by saying that Jesus came through water, blood and Spirit. (2 John 5,8- "And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water and blood, and these three agree in one.)

    To understand this properly we need to first go back to the Old Testament. In the Old Testament God gave Israel the sacrificial system. When any of the people of Israel had committed sin, he/she should bring a sacrificial animal to the Tebarnacle. He then passed his sins to it by LAYING HIS HANDS on its head , drew it's blood and handed it over to priest. This was the sins offering of the sacrificial system. The Israelites received the remission of sin by offering such a sacrifice. To receive the remission they had to confess their sins to God put their hands on the head of the sacrificial animals and pass their sins to them. Only then could the sins be passed onto the head of the sacrificial animals. So it was by lying their hands on an unblemished sheep or goat that the people of the Old Testament could pass on their sins .This is the method of salvation established by God. ( Leviticus 1,1-4; 4,20 ) . Leviticus : 1, 2: "Speak unto the children of Israel , and say unto them , If any men of you bring an offering unto the Lord , ye shall bring your offering of the cattle , even of the herd, and of the flock. If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd , let him offer a male without blemish : he shall offer it of his own voluntary will at the door of the tebarnacle of the congregation before the Lord. AND HE SHALL PUT HIS HAND UPON THE HEAD OF THE BURNT OFFERING and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him. And he shall kill the bullock before the Lord and the priest s, Aaron's sons , shall bring the blood and sprinkle the blood round about upon the altar ."
    But because God knew that the people of the Israel will sin everyday, knowing our human weaknesses , God permitted the Israelites to offer just one sacrifice in a year. God appointed Aaron (and only his descendants) as a High Priest. The High Priest sacrificed once a year , on the tenth day of the seventh month , to blot out the yearly sins of the people of Israel. This is the sacrifice of the Day of Atonement . On this day , on behalf of all people, the HIgh Priest passed their yearly sins onto a sacrificial animal by laying his hands on it;s head. Redemption is fulfilled when one's sins are passed onto a sacrifice. Then the Aaron drew it's blood , took it's blood into the Most Holy , sprinkled it on the mercy seat above the Ark and burnt it's flesh.
    The entire sacrificial system of the Old Testament is a shadow of the gospel of the water and Spirit that the Lord has given in the New Testament. Jesus the same like the sacrificial offering in the Old Testament was : "Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world".
    How was the sin of the wolrd passes onto Jesus then , who passed the sin of the world onto Jesus and how did he died for these sins ?
    The first thing Jesus did in his ministry was to be baptised by John the Baptist. John the Baptist was a descendant of Aaron the High Priest ( Luke 1,5- " There was in the days of Herod , the king of Judea , a certain priest named Zacharias of the course of Abia and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron and her name was Elizabeth "- They were the parents of John the Baptist , both descendants of Aaron ). And we know, that only the descendants of Aaron could pass the sins onto the sacrifices. John the Baptist was send by God to pass the sins of the world onto Jesus Christ, Malachi 2,1: " Behold, I will send my messanger and he shall prepare the way before me ". John the Baptist was send by God to pass the sin of the world to Jesus , HE PUT HIS HAND UPON THE HEAD OF JESUS AND HE PASSED ONTO HIM ALL THE SIN OF THE WORLD, JESUS TOOK ALL THE SIN OF THE WORLD THROUGH HIS BAPTISM IN THE JORDAN RIVER , THE NEXT DAY JOHN THE BAPTIST TESTIFIED : "THE LAMB OF GOD WHO TAKES AWAY THE SIN OF THE WORLD". The water in the Bible refers to :THE BAPTISM OF JESUS . Before Jesus was baptised, he said to John the Baptist, Matthew 3,15 : "PERMIT TO BE SO NOW FOR THUS IS BECOMETH US TO FULFILL ALL RIGHTEOUSNESS". Jesus Christ , the lamb of God fulfilled all righteousness through the Baptism he received from JOhn the Bpatist.
    HE WAS JUDGED FOR THE SIN OF THE WORLD ON THE CROSS( "The wages of sin is death" ) ---BLOOD

    To receive the remission of sins , you just need to pass the sins of your heart to Jesus by faith, you need to believe that Jesus was baptised to take away your sins, you need to cut off your sins from your heart and pass them onto Jesus through His baptism, that is spiritual circumcision - "SPIRITUAL CIRCUMCISION IS THAT OF THE HEART " ,spiritual circumcision means cut off the sin from your heart through strong faith in Jesus Baptism in the Jordan River, Jesus was Baptised to take away all your sins through the laying of the hand , John the Baptist laid his hands on Jesus head to pass onto Him the sin of the world , and because he had all our sins on Himself He had to be judged for them on the Cross with His precious blood.
    The Water - Jesus was baptist to take the sin of the world , the Blood - He was judged for them on the Cross. THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH , because Jesus accepted the sins , which John the Baptist passed onto HIm , He had to be judged for them on the Cross.
    When you pass your sins onto Jesus you become righteouss, the saint of God, you have no sin and Holy Spirit comes to dwell in your heart. Holy Spirit can't dwell in the heart of those who have sin, God can't live in human being who have not been forgiven for the his sin.How can you imagine God living in sin ? That is just imposible. You must be forgiven for your sins before the Holy Spirit can come to dwell in your heart , only the saints of God have the Holy Spirit living in them . Only! That is why Peter said in Acts 2,38: "Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost" . Repentance is turning away from the sin, passing the sin onto Jesus through His baptism, believing that He was baptised to take the sin of the world and believing that He died on the Cross for your sins and was resurrected to heaven on the third day.

    Jesus Baptism was from heaven , Mark 11,29-31 :"I will also ask of you one question, and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. The baptism of John, was from heaven, or of men? answer me. And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then did ye not believe him?" . John the Baptist testified :"The lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world ". People of Israel knew very well the sacrificial system , they knew that before the sacrifice could die for their sin, first the sins had to be passed onto the sacrifice. Without passing the sin, the blood would be meaningless. But the chief priest didn't want to believe in Jesus Baptism, even though they knew that Jesus took the sin of the world , AS John testified about this:"And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then did ye not believe him?"
    They didnt believe in the words of John the Baptist.

    Jesus started His ministry after being baptised , because of His baptism , he could heal people and preach about the Kingdom of God , Matthew says in chapter 8,17" That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses."

    Jesus said that unless one is born of water and Spirit , he can't enter the Kingdom of God. The water here means His Baptism. The Water . Jesus said in JOhn 8,37-39: "Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive)". If you believe that Jesus Christ took all your sins through His Baptism,you become sinless person , only sinless in heart can receive the Holy Spirit. WHY JESUS CHRIST CAME TO THIS EARTH ? TO MAKE US SINLESS AND BLAMLESS BEFORE HIS FATHER. HE TOOK THE SIN OF THE WHOLE WORLD . THERE IS NO EVEN ONE SIN LEFT . THE SINS OF THE WORLD ARE GONE .IF THERE ARE STILL SINS IN THIS WORLD THAT WOULD MEAN THAT JESUS DIDN'T COMPLETE THE SALVATION. THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN WATER, BLOOD AND SPIRIT WITH THEIR HEARTS ARE SINLESS . THAT'S WHY JESUS SAID: If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you FREE".
    All the prophets of the Old Testament testified of Jesus , they all knew how Jesus will take the sin of the world, let's see what Micah 7,19 says :"He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. "

  3. Greetings,

    I don't agree with everything you said however, I always love to read everyones opinion, and I enjoy those who also love the WORD, and research it. As soon as i have time i like to discus this further.

    ABBA bless you richly,
  4. The water and the blood could also speak of his birth in human form- ever been with a lady when her water broke? The Spirit could also denote His heavenly origin. Just some thougths. Thanks for the post gospelofgod I enjoyed reading your thoughts.
  5. Larry You are correct in your mention of The Water.

    In the Original Greek Language Texts, being "born of water" has absolutely nothing at all to do with baptism in the context of the above passages. Several denominations still cling to that teaching, but it is not accurate as translated from scripture and is a false teaching.

    It only means that unless we are born of water (through the womb) we will not be in the eternity. Use a Strong's Concordance to take those key words back to the Greek Manuscript Texts to verify - don't just take my word for it.

    Remember, the "fallen angels" refused to be born of woman in Genesis 6:1-22 (KJV) and especially Genesis 6:1-5 (KJV). The fallen angels, or as sometimes referred to as sons of God, have already been sentenced to the Lake of Fire because of their actions in leaving Heaven and coming to earth to seduce woman rather than being born OF woman. The fallen angels refused to be born of water (woman) and will NOT be in the eternity.
