The Bible Does Not Make Anyone Obey God

It is not the Bible that makes a person willing to obey God, it is the Holy Spirit living inside God’s chosen vessel that makes a person willing to obey God. Phil 2:13 God indeed is the (One) working in you both (the) to will and (the) to work according to the good pleasure – English translation of the Greek text.

The “good pleasure” that is spoken of in Philippians 2:13 is, not to practice sin.

In order for someone not to practice sin, a person must be baptized in the Holy Spirit, it is the baptism in the Holy Spirit that makes a person stop practicing sin, it is the baptism of the Holy Spirit that makes a person born from above (born of God).

No one has to say a prayer, confess sin, or be water baptized to be born from above

To be born from above, a person first has to believe that God’s Son Yeshua is the Messiah, and then, God willing, God will baptize the person in the Holy Spirit.

Many people say that a person must first be water baptized in order to be baptized in the Holy Spirit, but that is not true, here is a link to the category on my blog entitled “Baptism In The Holy Spirit” that will explain more about the baptism in the Holy Spirit https://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/category/baptism-in-the-holy-spirit/

Only those who believe Yeshua is the Messiah that no longer practice sin, are born from above.

1 John 5:1 Everyone who believes Yeshua is the Messiah is born of God [born from above].

1 John 3:9 – No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed [the Holy Spirit] abides in him or her; and he or she cannot sin, because he or she is born of God [born from above].

1 John 5:18 – We know [absolutely] that anyone born of God [born from above] does not [deliberately and knowingly] practice committing sin, but the One Who was begotten of God carefully watches over {and} protects him [Christ’s divine presence within him preserves him against the evil], and the wicked one does not lay hold (get a grip) on him {or} touch [him].
