It is written, "No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him" (John 1:18). How perfectly did Jesus reveal the love of God to us! How perfectly did Jesus deliver us! What perfect Truth of salvation is the gospel of the water and the Spirit! We have never regretted receiving our salvation through our faith in Jesus, who came by water and blood (1 John 5:6). I hope that all of you believe in Jesus Christ who has revealed the love of God, keep the faith in His love in your hearts, and live daily for the sake of spreading that love. I hope that you will acquire the blessing of the remission of sin by meeting with God through the gospel of the water and the Spirit.

  • The Love of God Revealed through Jesus, The Only Begotten Son (I)
    Moon Sahotra, Pakistan

    In this book, I learned about God`s love as revealed through His only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
    God loved us so much that He sent His Son into this world for us. Jesus Christ came to this world in the flesh of man and made us sinless by the gospel of the water and the Spirit. Thus, He has made us into His own people. Our Lord has given us the gospel of great blessings. Our lord Become Immanuel to us. “Immanuel” means “God with us,” and the name “Jesus” means “He who will save His people from their sins”. John 3:16 says about Immanuel Jesus the following: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Because God so loved us, He took the flesh of man and came into this world to meet with us. When we believe in Jesus who came into this world by water, blood and spirit, we are born again.
    There are many so-called pastors in this world who teach their congregations many false ways of being born again: they say when one lives his life in holiness, fasts, prays for repentance every day, he will be being born again someday. Also, if one gives a lot of donations, he will receive many physical blessings as well as the blessing of being born again.
    They misinterpret the following passage according to their personal views: “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes.” They say that no one knows the exact time of being born again, not even they themselves know when one is born again.
    But we must born again of God. We have to be like that, “who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”
    How then can we be born of God? We are born again when we have the following faith: "O God, I am a sinner who was born into this world with 12 kinds of sins. I was destined to burn in the fire of hell. But you loved me and sent your only son into this world. He was born of the Virgin Mary. He took all my past, present and future sins upon himself by being baptized by John the Baptist. He was taken these sins to the cross and He shed His blood to pay the price for all my sins. Now I am sinless. I am a righteous son of God. The Holy Spirit dwells within me. Hallelujah!”
    We must believe in Jesus who came by water, blood and The Holy Spirit. To believe in Jesus is equivalent to believing in God the Father. Believing in Jesus as one’s true Savior is only possible when one believes in the gospel of the water and the Spirit, which is the Truth that delivers us from all our sins. Believing in Jesus is the way to the remission of sin and to eternal life.
    When we believe in Jesus without any doubt, miracles happen in our lives. And we are filled with physical and spiritual blessings as well as eternal joys. Just as happened at the wedding at Cana of Galilee.
    Jesus cares about all the problems in our lives. As, He turned water into wine at a wedding in Cana of Galilee.
    All we need to do is submit to His commandments and follow Him. Just as the servants obeyed Him without any doubt and carried the water and presented it to master of the feast which had turned into a fine wine.
    Those who have invited Jesus in their lives are the ones who have accepted Jesus and believe in Him. These people have happiness like guests at a wedding banquet. Our Lord has indeed blotted out all our sins completely. “As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up” (John 3:14). Believing in Jesus’ baptism and His death on the Cross, is the very salvation and the only way of being born again. This is the Truth of being born again of water and the Spirit, which our Lord has told Nicodemus (John 3:5).
    Jesus is speaking clearly to Nicodemus, “Unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” As Jesus said this, Nicodemus asked in return, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Again, Jesus said to Nicodemus, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.”
    When Jesus was about to be baptized by John the Baptist, Jesus said to John, “Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness” (Matthew 3:15). Here the phrase “thus” means: 1 proper; 2 appropriate; and 3 no other way but this. The baptism Jesus received from John was in the form of “laying on of hands.” As you may know, the laying of hands on the head of the scapegoat by the High Priest was to pass over the sins of the Israelites all at once to the sacrifice. Therefore, when the hands of John, the representative of all mankind, were laid on the head of Jesus, the sins of the world were transferred onto the body of Jesus once and for all. So, the next day of Jesus’ baptism, John the Baptist cried out seeing Jesus coming toward him, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”
    God the Father sent His Son as the Savior of mankind, and He had His Son accept our sins through John the Baptist. And since the wages of sin is death. He shed His precious blood on the cross for our sins. This is very being born that our Lord wanted to teach Nicodemus.
    Now that we have been born again, the only purpose of our lives is to preach the gospel of the water and the Spirit. We are so blessed that God loves us and has entrusted us with His precious work. We have to be faithful to these works.
    I thank God that He loved me so much that He gave me His only son. And He deemed me worthy to do the His work.
