"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: New Birth, Justification, Regeneration, and Sanctification, are by our living faith and by God's Grace. Explanation: Justification, Regeneration, and the new birth (by faith in blood!) Sanctification subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ; through the Word, and by the Holy Ghost. One sad pert in Christian world is that most of us boast ourselves to have faith. One thing, that the faith is not from God, but their own ambitions. Another thing is that their boastings are all but bluff, and have no works behind it. Faith without works is dead. "James 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also."
I have lessons for each word and they are on these links. Please check them out. "Justification", "Regeneration", "New Birth", "Faith", "Sanctification." Thank you.
God Bless You
