"Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. 2 Corinthians 7:1 ... dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."
I am a retired pastor of
the Church of God (Tennessee).
My name is Isaac Livingston. I am from Neyyoor India.
The declaration is: God may give the holy spirit to those, who repent of their sins and ask God for holy spirit, to live holy. Explanation: They, who has received the holy spirit, are born again or born of the spirit. It is also referred as "sealed by the spirit." They are children of God. The Holy Spirit enables a person to live a holy life, even to grow up to be the bride of Christ. Born again is not the baptism of the Holy Ghost. The term "Born Again" is very common in churches. They call a religious person in a church as born again. But, religiosity has nothing to do with born again. It is to receive the holy spirit as our spirit body, a second body to our flesh body. This spirit body will keep us in the ways of God, to be holy. And, when the flesh body, which came from the dust, returns to dust, this spirit body, which is the holy spirit, will cover us so that we will not be found naked on that day, so that we may go to heaven. If we do not have the spirit, we will be in hell. Please study from these links. "Born Again Video", "Spirit Body", "Born Again Lesson". Thank you.
God Bless You
