"I will not leave you orphans"
Written Dec 28, 2016
Peter couldn't help but deny the Lord before he received the Power from on High.
"Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake." John 13:37
"Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied me thrice." John 13:38
Not only can you not TRULY follow the Lord. But your natural man cannot help but DENY Him. You must be baptized with Power.
It wasn't until Pentecost where Peter received the power TO follow Jesus, AND lay down his life. Which he did.
The teachings that there are TWO events of being born again and then receiving the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is FALSE doctrine.
And you need to stop spreading it. You CANNOT prove your position through Scripture. Let it be a sign that you have been indoctrinated by a FALSE TEACHER.
Jesus said to His disciples and to His future disciples.
15. If ye love me, ...
If you love God. That means you understand with your heart what He did for you. If you understand with your heart that He loved you first and sent His Son to die for you and shed His blood for the remission of sin. That He raised from the dead and sits on the right hand of God and is become a "quickening" (eternal Life giving) Spirit. And that He WANTS to send Himself and the Father via His Holy Spirit into your heart. And this can only happen through God's free gift of faith to the believer.
... keep my commandments.
(http://biblehub.com/greek/1785.htm) His prompting you EXTERNALLY (as He isn't in you yet) And you will follow the Words of Christ (He said "my commandments" ie "my commands" or instructions.) And the FIRST thing you need is eternal life through the Spirit of Truth ie the Baptism in His Holy Spirit as instructed to His disciples regarding Pentecost. See as follows:
16. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another
"another" GUIDE BESIDE the WRITTEN external Word on paper! This Guide will be IN US! And Giving us POWER to KEEP God's Word!
"Comforter", (http://biblehub.com/greek/3875.htm) Properly Legal advocate who will guide you from WITHIN (GREAT EMPHASIS). Thus fulfilling the New Covenant ie "I will write the law on the tables of your heart". Jeremiah 31:31-34
"that he may abide with you FOR EVER; "
This is how we will raise from the dead to be with Christ. It is God's Eternal Life!
17. Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18. I will not leave you comfortless: "comfortless" is actually "ORPHAN" in the Greek (http://biblehub.com/greek/3737.htm)
He said He will not leave you an ORPHAN(!!!) Because you cannot be a true child of God without The Spirit of God's Son within YOU
...I will come to you. 19. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. 20. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. 21. He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. 22. Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world? 23. Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. 24. He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.
25. These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
Important. As He had not yet ascended to be able to GIVE the Holy Spirit yet.
26. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. John 14
I prayed to God for the answer to this and He answered me. The King James Version Bible does NOT get this right. it is translated TERRIBLY.
Praise the Lord! I hope this helps straighten out all those who were taught falsely that there are TWO separate events. One becoming born again. And Two, receiving the Baptism. They are both one and the same and you are NOT a child of God UNTIL you receive God's One Spirit through Jesus Christ!

If you have never repented of your sins and become a true child of God and feel the desire to do so now please say this prayer. This is how I was powerfully saved 20 years ago!
"My Lord and my God, Have mercy on my soul, a sinner, I believe Jesus the Messiah died on the cross and shed His precious blood for the forgiveness of all my sins. I believe God raised Jesus from the dead and HE is now on the right hand of God and can hear my prayer at this moment and wants to live through me and give me power to keep His Word. I open up the door of my heart and I invite You into my heart Lord Jesus. Please be my Lord and Savior in every aspect of my life. Thank you God for saving my soul and I vow to serve you with all my heart which is the first and greatest commandment. Amen"
