Born, Again!

Written by Joyce C. Lock


Continued from page 1

1.) We were saved, 2.) we are being saved, and 3.) we will be saved. We are all creations of God and all God's children; some in bondage and some free, 1 Cor. 12:14. But for all, our reservations have already been made, Peter 1:4. And, in being born again, we come to know 1.) Who God is, 2.) Whose we are, and 3.) who we are ... and, finally, defeat Satan. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us fromrepparttar love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come untorepparttar 147161 knowledge ofrepparttar 147162 truth. 1 Tim. 2:4 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust inrepparttar 147163 living God, who isrepparttar 147164 Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe. 1 Tim. 4:10

Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory. For this cause I bow my knees untorepparttar 147165 Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whomrepparttar 147166 whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according torepparttar 147167 riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit inrepparttar 147168 inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what isrepparttar 147169 breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to knowrepparttar 147170 love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with allrepparttar 147171 fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according torepparttar 147172 power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory inrepparttar 147173 church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. Ephes. 3:13-21 But, before discovering who we are, and even, perhaps, before we can receive it ... we need to know just how lost we really are, as sheep ... and, maybe even, seerepparttar 147174 truthfulness of filthy rags we call 'righteousness'. And then, we can welcome our final baptism ... being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, byrepparttar 147175 word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever ... To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you. 1 Peter 1:4, 23

For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to passrepparttar 147176 saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 1 Cor. 15:53-54

And then ... Pentecost, restoration, Garden of Eden, Heaven on Earth, ALL things new!

And as concerning that he raised him up fromrepparttar 147177 dead, now no more to return to corruption, he said on this wise, I will give yourepparttar 147178 sure mercies of David. Acts 13:34 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. Rev. 22:12

Never discount any portion of God's word, Proverbs 30:5. If we think to see contradiction, we only understand in part and that which is perfect has not yet come. Romans 11:25

Be at Rest

Continued from page 1

I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Many waters cannot quench love, neither canrepparttar floods drown it: if a man would give allrepparttar 147160 substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned.

The Lord thy God inrepparttar 147161 midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.

Who shall separate us fromrepparttar 147162 love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us fromrepparttar 147163 love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. For God hath not given usrepparttar 147164 spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Blessed isrepparttar 147165 man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receiverepparttar 147166 crown of life, whichrepparttar 147167 Lord hath promised to them that love him.
