Section 4 Chapters
In this mock demonstration, I want to illustrate what to do when after asking
the person which person on p.
best represents their life, they answer some where in the
middle. This usually means that the person has received Jesus into
their life in the past, but either because of ignorance or self-will
they have retaken control of their life and are no longer walking
with Jesus today. The purpose of this mock presentation is to show
you how to use the Forgiveness Tract titled,
Is The Answer To Your
Needs to bring a Christian back to
Jesus by accomplishing the following five objectives:
Attain, first, a clear indication and confession from the person about how
and when they first received Jesus into their hearts as Savior and Lord.
Second, to give the person assurance of Salvation by going over page
13 of What
Is Eternal Life?
Third, to explain to the person how to release their faith in Jesusí
forgiveness for sins confessed and repented of.
Fourth, to explain to the person how to resurrender the Lordship of their
lives to Jesus and be refilled and stay filled with the Holy Spirit.
And then finally, fifth, to show them how to draw upon Jesusí grace,
strength & power to overcome the problems in their lives that led them
to backslide in the first place and stay strong in Jesus to live an ongoing
victorious Christian life.
After a person states that
they are somewhere in the middle of the two people on
page 11 of
the Salvation Tract
do the following to lead them into the Forgiveness Tract:
Is The Answer To Your
Needs and accomplish the above
Layman Evangelist (LE):
John, which of these two people best represents Your life?
Oh! I am some where in the middle.
Have you ever prayed and received Jesus into Your life before?
How did you first come to receive Jesus as Your Savior and Lord?
When I was in high school, a friend on campus shared with me about
Jesus and with him I prayed and received Jesus into my life as
Savior and Lord.
John, if you did receive Jesus into Your life in the past, He is
still in Your life though He may not be perfectly Lord of Your life.
We know this is true because of His promise given to us in
Jesus said in this passage (pointing to it on
of the Salvation Tract), "I will never ever desert
you, nor will I ever, ever, ever forsake you." This is a literal
translation from the Greek text which has a double and a triple
negative stated: "never ever" and "never, never, never." Jesus wants
us to know emphatically that He will not! leave or forsake
us. The significance of this truth is stated in this
passage above in 1 John
5:11-12. John tells us that God the
Father has given you and I a testimony about what determines whether
or not we have eternal life and will go to heaven. John tells us in
"And the witness of God is
this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His
Son. He who has the Son has the life;
he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life."
John, God the Father tells you and I that what
determines whether or not we have eternal life is not whether we
belong to the perfect Church or whether we have lived the perfect
Christian life, but by whether or not we have His Son Jesus Christ
living in us. Since Jesus said that once we invite Him into our
lives that He will not leave or forsake us and since the Father says
to have the Son is to have eternal life, even though you may not be
in right standing with the Lord in Your life, based on these
promises of Jesus, you can know that you do have eternal life and
that you will go to heaven because Jesus lives in You.
When a person believes he has
lost his salvation over past sins he believed he could not overcome,
he is not going to be receptive initially to your talking to him
about his need to repent and rededicate his life to Jesus.
Therefore, the first thing you need to do is establish with them
that even though Jesus may not be presently Lord over their lives
that He is still in their lives and that because this is true they
do have eternal life. Their knowing this first, which is positive,
will make them then receptive to hear what you have to say about
Jesusí forgiveness for their past and present sins and about their
need to repent and rededicate their lives to Jesus.
John I have another Tract here that I think would better
minister to Your need. It is called
Is The Answer To Your
The book explains how to experience Jesusí
forgiveness on a moment by moment basis.
here explains that the Bible talks about three kinds of
is a person who is motivated and controlled through their
their intellect and feelings, and through their
their appetites and desires. This is a person without Christ and
devoid of Spirit, our means of communicating with and having a
relationship with God. The Apostle Paul wrote about this person:
1 Corinthians 2:14
"But a man who is motivated-and-controlled-through-his-soul
does not accept the things of the Spirit of God; for they are
foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are
discerned through the spirit."
2) is a person who has received Jesus
Christ into his heart as Savior and Lord; and who as a result is
motivated and controlled by Jesus through their human spirit. Paul
wrote about this person:
1 Corinthians 2:15-16
"But he who is motivated-and-controlled-through-his-spirit
discerns all things, yet he himself is discerned by no man. For who
has known the mind of the Lord, that he should instruct Him? But we
have the mind of Christ."
3) is a Christian who because of ignorance or
self-will has retaken control of his life. As a result, like the
Soulish Man, he is again following the leading and motivation of his
his intellect and feelings, and his
his appetites and desires. The Apostle Paul wrote:
Corinthians 3:1-3 "And I, brethren,
could not speak to you as to men motivated-and-con-
trolled-through-your-spirit, but as to men
motivated-and-controlled-through-your-flesh, as to babes in
Christ. I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not
yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able, for
you are still motivated-and-controlled-through-your-flesh. For since
there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not
motivated-and-controlled-through-your-flesh, and are you not walking
like mere men?"
I am not sure I understand what you mean by being motivated through
the spirit? What is the difference between the
Unfortunately in Christendom, very few Christians have ever been
taught or understand the Bibleís teaching about the creation and
constitution of man which is a
verses the secular view of man which is a
and for many only a body. Because this is true, when sharing the
forgiveness tract with a Christian, they may not always understand
what you are talking about when you say "Motivated and controlled by
the Holy Spirit through your human spirit" and "Motivated and
controlled through your soul." Therefore the question will come up:
"What do you mean by motivated and controlled through your human
spirit?" The next several paragraphs explain how to adequately
answer this question.
John, I am glad you asked that question. When God created Adam and
Eve, He created man with a
spirit is the means by which man
has God-consciousness and the means by which he communicates with
and has a relationship with God.
soul is the means by which he has
self-consciousness and relationship with self.
body is the means by which he has
world-consciousness and the means by which he communicates with and
has a relationship with the physical world
When God created Adam and Eve,
His intent and plan for man was that he was to be led, motivated and
controlled, by the Holy Spirit through his human spirit; not through
his soul: his intellect and feelings, or through his flesh, his
body: his appetite and desires. When Adam and Eve sinned, their sin
was choosing to act out of the initiative of their soul and their
flesh. When they did this, the Bible tells us that their human
spirit died. This does not mean it ceased to exist, it means that
its ability to communicate with and have a relationship with God
ceased to function which is the Bibleís definition of spiritual
death. Because Adam and Eve were no longer able to communicate with
God through their human spirit they were left with only their soul:
their intellect and feelings and their flesh: their appetite and
desires to lead and guide them through life.
Because all of humanity were
present in the loins of Adam when he sinned, the Bible tells us that
all men are born into this world soulishly and physically alive, but
spiritually dead, without capacity to communicate with or have a
relationship with God. This is what is meant by being born with
This is also what we mean by
men being in total depravity. The Bibleís definition
of sin is anything we do that is not initiated by Jesusí Holy Spirit
through our human spirit first! That means that anything we choose
to do that initiates from the soul first: out of our intellect and
feelings, and our flesh first, out of our appetite and desires, is
sin. Passages in the Bible which teach this are
which states "ĎWoe to the rebellious children,í declares Yehovah,
Ďwho execute a plan, but not Mine, and make an alliance, but not of
My Spirit, in order to add sin to sin;í" and
in the New Testament which states "But He who doubts is condemned if
he eats, because his eating is not from faith; and whatever is not
from faith is sin." John, the only time we are walking in the Holy
Spirit, walking in faith, and doing that which is acceptable to God
is when what we are doing is first initiated by Jesus by His Holy
Spirit through our human spirit. Anything else is sin.
John, this is also why we
cannot save ourselves. We cannot save ourselves because anything we
do to save ourselves originates out of the initiative of our soul,
not by the Holy Spirit through our human spirit which unsaved man
does not have. Only what is initiated by God by the Holy Spirit
through our human spirit is pleasing to Him and accepted by Him.
This is why in order for us to be saved God Himself had to take the
initiative to save us, and He did by sending Jesus to us through
Holy Spirit conception of the Virgin Mary so that He could die on
the cross for our sins.
When we believe on the Gospel
and pray and ask Jesus to come into our heart as Savior from our
sins and Lord of our lives, Paul tells us in Ephesians 1:13-14 that
as a result of our saving faith in the Gospel, God automatically
gives us His Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit then unites with our human
spirit and brings our human spirit back to life and back into
unhindered communion and relationship with God. This is why Jesus
told Nicodemus that in order to enter the kingdom of God he had to
be born from-above, meaning spiritually by the Holy Spirit.
When we are born from below, from this earth, we are born soulishly
and physically alive, but spiritually dead. This is also why the
concept of reincarnation would never lead to manís salvation,
because no matter how many times a person would be reborn into this
world, they would still be only soulishly and physically alive, but
spiritually dead. Manís dead spirit is his problem, not what he does
or does not do. In order for our spirit to be brought back to life,
Jesus said we must be bornagain, born from above which means that
when we receive Jesus into our heart as Savior and Lord the Holy
Spirit comes to indwell us and regenerates our human spirit and
brings it back to life and back into relationship with God. This
means then we are again able to have a relationship with God and
receive again His will and plan for our lives by the Holy Spirit
through our human spirit. This then is what we mean by being
motivated and controlled through our human spirit. Thus the damage
done in the Garden of Eden by Adam and Eve is reversed and Godís
intended order for man is restored which is to be led, motivated and
controlled by the Holy Spirit through our human spirit, not through
the initiative of our soulish or fleshly desires.
John, being motivated and
controlled by the Holy Spirit through our human spirit, however,
does not mean that we are now zombies without free will anymore than
it did for Adam and Eve.
When we received Jesus into
our heart our spirits were brought back to life so we could receive
from God His will and plan for our lives, but we can still with our
soul choose not to obey Jesusí revealed will to us. This then is
what Paul means by a
he is referring to a born again Christian who is choosing to act out
of the initiative of his soul: his intellect and feelings, and his
flesh: his appetite and desires rather than to submit himself to the
leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit through his human spirit.
Thus a spiritual-man
is a Christian who is choosing to follow the leading of the Holy
Spirit through His human spirit where as a
is a Christian who is choosing to follow his own soulish and fleshly
Now I understand!
Often times, John, a Christian does not know how or when he is
living by the Holy Spirit through his human spirit or just out of
the initiative and control of his soul. This then is the plight of
What Is the Problem with the Fleshly Christian?
problem with the fleshly Christian is that he is trying to live the
Christian life in the power of the Flesh which means that he
is trying to overcome his problems through the strength of the
flesh. The Apostle Paul Himself tried to live the Christian life in
this way.(p. 4)
What was the end result? He wrote in
"For I know that nothing good
dwells in me, that is, in my flesh; for the wishing is present in
me, but the doing of the good is not. For the good that I wish, I do
not do; but I practice the very evil that I do not wish."
Paul tells us that no matter
how hard he tried to live the Christian life in his own strength, he
failed; so much so that he screamed out in frustration:
"Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this
death?" Paul found that trying to live the Christian life in the
strength of the flesh was not possible.
Why Canít We Overcome
the Strength of the Flesh?
The Bible Teaches us that the
flesh is Romnans 7:14
"sold into bondage to sin." When we try to overcome a problem in the
strength of the flesh, we energize the flesh. Because the flesh is
in bondage to sin, when we energize it we strengthen the flesh to
sin. What does this mean? It means that even though temporarily you
appear to be making progress in overcoming the problems of your
flesh, in the end you will find yourself in deeper bondage to those
problems. (p. 5)Why
is this true? The Apostle Paul tells us why, he wrote:
Romans 8:6-7 "For
the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit
is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh
is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the
law of God, for it is not even able to do so; and those who
are in the flesh cannot please God."
Paul explains to us that to
try and overcome our problems in the flesh will not work and will
not please God. Why? Because God knows it will not lead to
overcoming the problems of our flesh. It is a lost cause. God
through Paul instructs us to give it up.
Another reason why we are not
able to change ourselves or overcome our problems in the flesh is
Has no Life
in Itself to
Jesus said in
"It is the Spirit
Then Do We Overcome
The Problems of Our Flesh?
through our strength but through Jesusí strength. The Apostle Paul
wrote in Ephesians 6:10
"Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might."
Jesus does not want us to try and overcome our problems in our
strength but in His strength.
How We Draw Upon Jesusí Strength
by recognizing that we all sin daily.
The Apostle John and Solomon wrote,
1 John 1:8
"If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves, and the
truth is not in us."
Ecclesiastes 7:20 "Indeed, there is
not a righteous man on earth who continually does good and who never
does not give us this truth in His word to encourage us to sin but
so we will face ourselves realistically. No matter how long we know
the Lord, whether we want to or not we are going to sin.
by recognizing that Jesus forgives all sins confessed and repented
of. The Apostle John tells us in
1 John 1:9,
If we confess our sins, He is
faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from
John tells us in 1 John 1:9
that the moment we
confess our sins that Jesusí forgiveness becomes an automatic
We must accept this by faith.
By faith means we believe Jesusí promise to forgive us when we
confess and repent of our sins whether we feel forgiven or not.
Feelings are an organ of the
not the Spirit.
We are not to rely on our feelings but on Jesusí promises. Jesusí
promises are absolute eternal truths.
Confessing our Sins to God,
Making right our wrongs confessed,
And then bringing forth fruit, continued changed behavior, in
keeping with Repentance. (Matt 3:1-12, Lk 3:1-14).
you have confessed and repented of your sins and accepted Jesusí
forgiveness by faith, the
step is to then ask Him to refill you with His Holy Spirit.
The Apostle Paul wrote,
Ephesians 5:18 "And
do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled
with the Spirit."
filled with the Holy
Spirit simply means to
allow Jesus to be Lord of your life.
When Jesus is Lord of Your life, the Holy Spirit is in control of
your life and thus you are filled with the Holy Spirit.
Explanation: why is it that when we
are filled with the Holy Spirit, under the control and leading of
the Holy Spirit that Jesus is Lord of our lives? This truth is
covered extensively in my Advanced Textbook on Evangelism
titled: Relationship With Jesus The Key To Effective Ministry.
For a quick explanation: the reason why this is true is because
Jesus only acts out of the Fatherís initiative and the Holy Spirit
only acts out of Jesusí initiative. The Holy Spirit only does in our
lives what Jesus is telling him to do. Jesus said,
"But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will
guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own
initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He
will disclose to you what is to come. He shall glorify Me; for
He shall take of Mine, and shall disclose it to you. All
things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said, that He takes
of Mine, and will disclose it to you." (John 16:13-15)
Because this is true, when we follow the leading
of the Holy Spirit in our lives, we are actually following the
leading of Jesus in our lives. Thus, we are following Jesusí
Lordship over our lives and thus He is Lord over our lives. In the
same way, when we do not submit ourselves to the leading of the Holy
Spirit in our lives we are actually rebelling against the Lordship
of Jesus over our lives and thus He is no longer Lord over our
You are filled with the

1 John 5:14-15.
The Apostle John wrote:
"And this is the confidence
which we have before Him, that if we ask anything according to His
will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we
ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from
Jesusí Word promises us that
He will answer any prayer that is according to His will and He
states in His Word that it is His will that we be filled with the
would You like to pray right now and ask Jesus to refill you with
His Holy Spirit and retake control of Your life?
If you would, then in a minute I would like you to pray the
following prayer with me which says the following: (read prayer).
Before we pray this prayer together, John, I would first like to
give you a minute or so to silently confess to Jesus any sins You
are aware of in your life. Why donít you do that right now and when
you are done, you let me know and then I will lead you through this
(A moment of silence while you allow the person

Okay, I am done.
John, repeat this prayer with me: (read a phrase at a time and have
him repeat it after you,. . .):
Jesus, I confess to you that I am a sinner and
repent of my known sins. Thank You for forgiving me according to Your Promise in
1 John 1:9. I now ask You to refill me with Your Holy Spirit, to retake control
of my life and to continue to lead me into your will and plan for my life. By
faith thank You that it is done according to Your promise to answer any prayer

did you just sincerely pray this prayer in your heart?
John, then know by faith that Jesus has forgiven your sins, refilled
you with His Holy Spirit and that He is now again Lord of Your life.
You may not feel any different or you may feel different. Whether
you do or not, know that Jesus is again Lord of your life and that
you are filled with His Holy Spirit because He promised to answer
any prayer that is according to His will. It is Jesusí will that you
allow Him to be Lord of Your life and that you be filled with His

in a day you sin, repeat this prayer and you will stay filled with

Gain Control Over Your
Thought Life. Paul wrote
"But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the
flesh in regard to its lusts" (Phil 4:8, Eph 5:15-17). How do we put
on the Lord Jesus Christ and make no provision for the flesh in
regard to itís lusts? Paul tell us in
that we read on page 5,
that the flesh never did obey Godís laws and it never will. If that
is true, how then do we keep the flesh from sinning? Paul tells us
in Ephesians 5:15-17 that we do this by seeking Godís will and plan
for our lives and then walking in that will and plan. Paul wrote,
"Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men, but as wise,
making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do
not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is."
John, when we are doing Godís
will, our flesh doesnít have an opportunity to sin because our mind
and our flesh are occupied doing Godís will. John, let me share a
past incident in my own life to show you how this works.
When I was in Junior College
many years ago, I went through a degree in Electronic Technology.
This required four hours a day of class time five days a week. We
were allowed a twenty minute break in between that four hours of
class. I remember how difficult it was for me in those days to sit
in a chair for 4 hours. I was so antsy. I used my 20 minute break
every day to go out and share the Gospel with a student. There were
15,000 students on this Junior College campus so I never had any
trouble finding someone to share Jesus with. I would go through a
Salvation Tract like the one provided in this Training Program of
Evangelism. It took me about five minutes to find someone to share
with, ten minutes to share the Salvation Tract with them, and five
minutes to get back to class.
One day I decided instead of
going out and sharing Christ on campus with students to go to the
break room and buy a coke. I went in and bought a coke and sat down
at a table to enjoy it. When I did I looked around the room and
noticed it was filled with beautiful women.
RED FLAG! RED FLAG! RED FLAG!
Lol. That was all it took. My mind was on females and the
gymnastics of my perverted sinful mind went into action. Paul wrote
in Romans 8:7
"The mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not
subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so."
You see our flesh is in bondage to sin (Rom 7:14); therefore, given
the opportunity the flesh will sin. James the brother of Jesus
"Let no one say when he is tempted, ĎI am
being tempted by Godí; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and he
Himself does not tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is
carried away and enticed by his own lust. Then when lust has
conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it
brings forth death."
The saying "An idle mind is
the play ground of the Devil" is an absolute truth. If your fleshly
mind is idle it will gravitate to and sin. How then do we keep the
flesh from sinning? By filling up our time, including our
recreation, with activities according to Godís will. Paul wrote
"But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out
the desire of the flesh." When you are walking in the Holy Spirit,
using your time according to Godís will, which is what it means to
walk in the Holy Spirit, the flesh does not have opportunity or a
chance to sin. When I was using my break to share the love of Jesus
Christ with others, my mind was filled with how to help that person
release their faith in Jesus. My mind and flesh did not have an
opportunity to sin. When I went into that break room and sat down at
a table with my mind idle, like radar it zeroed in right onto its
object of sin without even blinking an eye.
"The mind set on the flesh is hostile
toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it
is not even able to do so; and those who are in the flesh cannot
please God." Therefore the only way you can keep your flesh from
sinning is by walking in the Holy Spirit which means to seek Godís
will in your use of time and then using your time, including your
breaks, according to Godís will. When you do that, your flesh wonít
have the opportunity to sin.
Read, Memorize & Meditate on Godís Word.
. King David wrote
"I have hidden Your word in my heart, that I might not sin
against You." John,
"For the word of God is
and sharper than any two-edged sword, and
as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and
marrow, and able to judge the conscious-reasonings51
and intentions52 of the heart."
John, Godís Word is more than
just words on a page. Paul tells us in
2 Timothy 3:16
"All Scripture is given-by-inspiration-of-God." There is Spiritual
life in Godís Word, When you study, memorize and meditate on Godís
word, it goes into your heart and soul and cleanses you and your
human spirit is strengthened and becomes dominate over your flesh
and restrains your flesh from sinning. Thus, why David said in
"I have hidden Your word in my heart, that I might not sin against
You." For this reason it is very important that you spend daily time
with Jesus in His word, reading, studying, memorizing and meditating
upon the Word of God. Jesus said in
"He who is of God hears the words of God." As you spend time with
Jesus in His word, Jesusí promise is that He will reveal Himself to
You (John 8:47, 14:21) and that He will give You Holy Spirit grace,
strength and power to carry out His will and restraint against your
flesh to not sin (Rom 1:28).
Seek Fellowship with Christians.
The writer of Hebrews wrote:
"And let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good
deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of
some, but encouraging one another, and all the more, as you see the
day drawing near." John, do you have a church?
Do you attend it regularly?
Once in a while.
John it is real important that you attend church at least once a
week, preferably 3 times a week. The reason for that John is not to
get saved, because you are already saved and canít be anymore saved
then you already are. John, the reason you need to attend church is
for the same reason I am sitting here talking to you right now! You
see, John, we are having church right now! And what am I doing? I am
encouraging you to walk with the Lord, I am showing you how to
overcome sin in your life, I am helping you in your walk with Jesus.
That is the purpose of church fellowship. The purpose of church
fellowship, John, is to encourage one another to love and good deeds
and to help each other in our walk with Jesus! John, no one can live
the Christian life in their own strength. We need the power of the
Holy Spirit and the encouragement and support of one another to
succeed in Godís will and plan for our lives and to keep from
falling back into the world and sin! So it is real important that
you weekly attend church. If you are not getting the encouragement
and support you need in Jesus at the church you attend, you need to
find a church where they do love Jesus and will give you the
encouragement and support you need in Jesus. Okay?
, John, in order not to sin,
Ask God for the Power of
the Holy Spirit to Not Sin.
states "Seek Yehovah and His strength; seek His face continually."
If you remember on page
6 I read
the passage Paul wrote in
"Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in
the strength of His might." John, Jesus does not command us to be
strong in our strength, He does not command us to overcome our
problems through the strength of the flesh, He commands us to
overcome our problems through His strength! Therefore, whenever you
start to have a problem in your flesh, find yourself falling to
temptation, the thing you need to do, and you need to not put this
off, is instantly get on your knees and lift up your hands and cry
to Jesus for His Holy Spirit grace, strength and power to not sin.
Get into a private place if you have to. That is why Jesus created
Go to the throne room, the bathroom, and cry out to Jesus and
say "Jesus! I need Your Holy Spirit grace, strength and power to not
sin. Jesus! Save me from this temptation and sin! I need You!" Jesus
says in His word in
"For whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be
saved," and in Matthew
"Keep watching and praying, that you may not
enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is
weak." When you call on Jesus He WILL save and help you from
sin and temptation. That is how you overcome the temptation to sin,
not by trying to exercise will power. Godís word states plainly that
the flesh never did obey Godís laws and it never will, so the only
way you will gain victory over temptation and sin is by drawing upon
Jesusí Holy Spirit grace, strength and power to not sin. Okay?
Okay!!! I didnít know this! Thank
John you can keep this tract titled
Jesus Is The
Answer To Your Needs. Also, if you would allow me, I
would like to give you a copy of these two books I have here. The
first one is titled
JESUS Is The Answer To Your
which has the same title as the Tract but
is not the same content. John, this book has a chapter in it which
will explain to you how to establish a quite time with Jesus in His
word. I would encourage you if you read nothing else in it to read
that Chapter. However, the rest of the content of this book will
also give you assurance of salvation, teach you how to relate to
Jesus for the answer to your needs in prayer, how to know what is
truly Jesusí voice, how to know what is His will and plan for your
life and how to succeed in that plan.
Thank you very much! I appreciate this!
John, one of the reasons Jesus wanted me to give you this book and
why he brought me across your path today was because he has a
purpose and a plan for your life. Because He does, he didnít want
you to be stuck in false condemnation and self-condemnation over
past and present sins. He wanted you to know how to release your
faith in His love and fogiveness when you do sin so that you can
continue to walk in the Holy Spirit and receive the will and plan
that He has for your life! That is why Jesus brought me across your
path today! That is the reason why you need to read this book
JESUS Is The Answer To Your
John, the second book I have here is titled
What this book does is go into a deeper study about what the Bible
teaches on Godís love and forgiveness, how to have victory over sin
and how to draw upon Jesusí Holy Spirit grace, strength and power to
