Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate. Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach. For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.

When I read your TFM on “One Way”, it went along with what I have been thinking all day about the simplicity of the gospel and how much I love it. About 90% of all divisions among God’s people could be cleared up if they just knew one thing: When is a person born again? Or, to put it another way, when are sins washed away? I wish more of God’s children knew what He did for them when He gave them the holy Ghost. For the most part, they don’t even know they have been born in to a new world when they are baptized with the holy ghost.
It is hard for me to imagine not understanding what He did for me when He gave me the holy ghost. I have had an anointed man from God to teach me and guide me in the right direction, and I have had others that have walked this walk to encourage me along the way in right things. Thank God for the people He has put in my life! You know, it really is simple. Just knowing who is in the body and who is not will let a person cut out most of the problems concerning who and who not to listen to. And if you pay attention to the Spirit, you will learn how to discern who is in the body -- and who is who in the body as well!
When I first received the holy ghost, I could not read the Bible and understand what I was reading. I needed help from someone that God was working through to teach me. I also needed to stay prayed up and hungry for the truth. It is very important for someone to hear the truth, but on their end, they need to be able to receive “the love of the truth” because many have heard the truth and believed a lie and are not with us anymore. God sent them a strong delusion. So, I have learned that if I don’t know something, or I read something in the Bible that I don’t understand, I should never try to make up something to make it fit what I think, because it takes a revelation from God to know anything about His kingdom. If we need to know it, He will send it. That is as hard as it gets.
I love this way, John.
And it is obvious, Stuart, that this holy way of Jesus is loving you.
