Water saves no one, God saves the lost. Water here in John 3 is a symbol for cleansing. "Born of water and Spirit" Here Jesus referred not to literal water but to the need for "cleansing" (Ezek. 36:24-27). When water is used figuratively in the O.T. it habitually refers to renewal or spiritual cleansing, especially when used in conjunction with "spirit" (Num. 19:17-19: Ps. 51:9,10: Is. 32:15: 44:3-5: 55:1-3: Jer. 3:13: Joel 2:28,29). Thus Jesus made reference to the spiritual washing or purification of the soul, accomplished by the Holy Spirit through the Word of God at the moment of salvation (Eph. 5:26: Titus 3:5) a requirement for belonging to His kingdom.

Nana,
I understand the importance and significance of baptism.

The conversation between Jesus and Nicondemus was not about baptism.

Did you read it all the way through as a simple narative? Did you consider how Nicodemus (sarcasticly) asked Jesus if he could go back into his mothers womb and be reborn? It was to this question Jesus answers "...Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit" To be sure Nicodemus understood, Jesus himself gives the meaning of this in the next sentence "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit."

In this context, in this conversation, "born of the water" = "born of the flesh".
---Bruce5656 on 8/30/11


Bruce5656,
Paul declares,
"Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?"(Galatians 3:3)
Peter said after that the "gift of the Holy Ghost" was poured on Cornelius's household,
"Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?"(Acts 10:47)
Was Peter being foolish? Mind you that Peter understands it is not just water with baptism (it is not 'doing laundry'), 1 Peter 3:21
"The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of
a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:"
---Nana on 8/30/11


Nana,

Look at Nicodemus's question (v.4). See how Jesus' answer speaks to that question. See how Jesus takes advantage of his question to use natural birth as an illustration. It becomes a conversation about the distinction between being born into a human family and born again into God's family.

A question is asked and a direct answer given that relates to that question. Jesus says the same thing twice for emphasis. v.v. 5 and 6. Again, the conversation is about being born (natural vs spirital) not being baptized.

Just because the word water appears in the passage does not mean that baptism is being referenced.
---Bruce5656 on 8/26/11


Bruce5656,
According to you, I am "making the asumption that Jesus meant baptism"
yet you declare that "what Jesus meant when he said born of the water"
was the sac of water in the womb. That is not stated, are you not also
making assumptions? You are I say.

As for the "context" bit:
JOHN 3:
22 After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judaea, and there he tarried with them, and baptized.
23 And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized.

Was John a midwife there?
---Nana on 8/26/11




Rob, If your wife is righteous, then Yes, she is heaven and very glad to be there.
---Eloy on 8/26/11


Nana
You are making the asumption that Jesus meant baptism when he spoke to Nicodemus about being born of the water. There is nothing in the context to support that.

In the womb we are enclosed in a sac of water. This is what Jesus meant when he said born of the water.

Look at the context: Not understanding Jesus comment on being "born" from above, Nicodemus asks "Can we go back into the womb and be born a second time?" Jesus responds "Unless you are born of the water (human birth - of the water, or of the flesh) and of the spirit(supernatural re-birth, born from above) you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven."
---Bruce5656 on 8/26/11


Eloy:

When I challenge your unsubstabtiated assertions, it is not primarily for your benefit, because I know that you have no respect for anthing anyone else says if they disagree with you, whether they are right or not.

Rather, it is for the more benefit of others on these blogs, who may end up believing mistaken claims if they are not challenged.

I have often asked you to provide two or three witnesses for your claims (as the Bible requires), yet most of the time you just repeat your claims, provide nobody else to corrobrate them, and hurl abuse at anyone who disagrees with you.

By seeing how we both deal with the truth, hopefully others will be able to decide who better represents it.
---StrongAxe on 8/26/11


Eloy, if you are here to minister and redeem the time wisely, why do you condemn your wife in front of world? Is it to show how righteous you are and how sinful she is? Why do you condemn others for disagreeing with you? How can you possibly be at the right hand of Christ when you are here bringing false doctrines? Speaking against the Gospel of Christ by introducing different ways into heaven. How can you see what is in the heart of others? You have no powers, and if it by their fruit, what about your fruit? Is your sin not sin and the reason you tell everyone you are sinless?
I didn't think it was possible for anyone to believe what you say, but I was wrong, you have supporters who like what you say.
---Mark_V. on 8/26/11


markv, the righteous judgment that I have set for strongax, I likewise exercise my liberty to use this selfsame Christian judgment to you. For I am here to minister and to redeem the time, and not to use the time unwisely.
---Eloy on 8/26/11




strongax, you are bent on continuing to dishonor my request. Therefore you leave me no choice, but to not reply to any of your postings to me.
---Eloy on 8/25/11


Bruce5656,
The Scripture says 'born again of water and of the Spirit'.
You claimed that your birth into this world was the water part
and that I refute on account that Jesus then said, "born again".

John 3:23 "And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim,
because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized."
Even Jesus was baptized by John, was he wasting his time?
Acts 10:47 "Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized,
which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?"
---Nana on 8/25/11


Nana,
"Scripture speaks of a man, not a child. 56 years ago you were not
born again."

I never claimed to be born again 56 years ago. I said I was born of the flesh 56 years ago.
---Bruce5656 on 8/25/11


Nana, you gave some great passages of Truth and then threw in condemnation with them when you tell Bruce5656,
"Scripture speaks of a man, not a child. 56 years ago you were not
born again."

How can you possibly know Bruces heart whether he is saved or not? Are you also the Father? Can there be three Fathers? Are you also seated with Christ and able to see the hearts of people?
---Mark_V. on 8/25/11


Eloy:

Whenever you make a statement on a blog, that statement is made to everyone. When such a statement is questionable, it must be challenged, whether you like it or not.

If you make an assertion and claim it to be true, the burden on YOU is to prove it is true by providing evidence of it - witnesses, references, etc., and not to just accuse anyone who disagrees with you and of being unsaved, blasphemers, in great error, etc.
---StrongAxe on 8/25/11


Bruce5656,
Lovers of truth and men of good and noble hearts are those who sought and who seek him and God:
John 3:21 "But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God."
Luke 8:15 "But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience."
Matthew 21:32 "For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him."

Scripture speaks of a man, not a child. 56 years ago you were not
born again.
---Nana on 8/25/11

Not even the disciples have ascended to heaven yet, only the few who were chosen men of God that were taken in body back to God the father alive to be with him.

No one can tell you the fate or fortune of anyone living or dead because we are not Christ, ONLY HE will open the book of life, in judging, he said he will have mercy on whom he will have mercy therefore any thing other than this biblical, truth is a lie.
---Carla on 8/25/11


Eloy, I accepted the Truth the reason I'm answering you wisely and politely, to expose false teachings and I find you are doing that on a day to day bases. I also answer others to do the same. I gave you Scripture and broke it down for you and all I got from you was that I'm not saved. So now that you know I am, why don't you answer? Are you God the Father? Since Jesus is seating at the right hand of the Father, or are you seating on the left handside of the Father? Or are you the Holy Ghost?
---Mark_V. on 8/25/11


markv, I politely asked you before to please stop addressing me, until that time that you are prepared to accept the truth. Until then, you are not using the time wisely.
---Eloy on 8/25/11


strongax, the same admoinition is for you: please stop addressing me, until that time that you are ready to receive the truth, else you are not using the time effectively.
---Eloy on 8/25/11

Nana,
"When is a man born of water, when of Spirit, and how do you know?"

Read v.v. 1-6. Jesus talks about being born in the flesh (born of water v4. Born of the flesh v. 6) vs being born of the Spirit v.v. 5 & 6. In order to make his point about being born from above (the litteral tranlation of "gennao anothen") Jesus contrasts natural birth (flesh) to receiving God's gift of Eternal Life (Rom 6:23) Life from above - life of the Spirit

So, do I know when I was born of the flesh? Yes 56 years ago. Do I know when I was born from above? Yes I remember the experience vividly. I was very young at the time when I confessed my need of a saviour and accepted God's gift of eternal life.
---Bruce5656 on 8/24/11


Romans 3:9-11 we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin, 10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 11 there is none that seeketh after God.

Eccl. 7:20 For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.

Psalms 53:2,3 God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God. 3 Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy, there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
---Bruce5656 on 8/24/11


Eloy, I don't know the definition of dissing, but do know that you are tired I having others correct you. Why? Because you are wrong at least 90% of the times. Just look at you telling others there is another way into heaven. Your doctrines are not from God so I don't know how God would first visit you at home to talk to you and later left to finish making mansions in heaven, and then visit you again and took you to the Great White Throne of Judgment so that you could see your wife been condemned to hell. And by the way you were seating next to Him. That is the biggest bull I have ever heard from anyone. You are so dillusional that it stopped been funny. I don't think Jim Jones even taught that and he was insane.
---Mark_V. on 8/24/11


Eloy:

You are so used to quickly hurling accusations of "great error" at anyone and everyone who seems to disagree with you in any way, that you accidentally slandered Nana who was, in fact, agreeing with you.

Perhaps you should be less quick with your judgments, lest you occasionally misjudge (as you have done here), despite your constant claims to always executing righteous judgment.

Remember that the bible is very clear about the severe wrongness of bearing false witness, which such erroneous accusations do!

It is very common for sinners like Bruce to twist the holy scriptures in order to support falsehood. Scripture details the three kinds of heaven-bound souls:
1) the Righteous by Nature- Mt.23:35+ Mk.2:17+ Rm.2:14,15,26,27.
2) the Born-again Christian- Lk.14:27+ Jn.1:12,13+ II Cor.5:17+ Gal.3:26-29+ 4:6,7.
3) the Repented- Mt.18:1-4+ 21:28,29+ Lk.7:36-50+ I Jn.1:9.
---Eloy on 8/24/11


markv, I already corrected you.
---Eloy on 8/24/11


Eloy 2: "go and learn what this means" is a phrase commonly used as a rebuke for those who did not know something they should have known, like you should have known. The verse Jesus cites is (Hos. 6:6, 1 Sam. 15:22, Mic. 6:6-8) which emphasizes the absolute priority of the law's standards over the ceremonial requirements. The Pharisees tended to focus on the outward, ritual, and ceremonial aspects of God's law- to the neglect of its inward, eternal, and moral precepts, in doing so they became harsh, Judgmental and "Self-righteously scornful of others" So, no, their is no righteous by nature but self-righteous are many which reminds me of what you do.

John 3:10 "Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?"
And of course you know, Bruce5656? When is a man born of water, when of Spirit, and how do you know?
---Nana on 8/23/11


Eloy, I cannot believe you would think that the Pharisees were righteous people. Jesus reserved the worse comments to them. Jesus repeated the same criticism in (v. 12:7). The context of the passage that you gave is found in Matt. 9:13, but if you read what was happening you would know you are completely wrong. (v.11) shows the Pharisees talking to the disciples and Jesus overheard what they ask. He even said go and learn what this means, You did not learn what He meant. "For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" He was talking about the Pharisees, who were "self-righteous" You made a whole doctrine of one misinterpret passage.
---Mark_V. on 8/23/11


Eloy says: "Three kinds of people go to heaven: the righteous by nature who never heard the gospel, the born-again Christian, and the backslider who repented or returned to the Lord."

"Doesn't that tell you that He did not come to anyone who was righteous because no one is?"
Mark_V.

No, it does not.

"There is no other way into heaven Eloy, if there was, He would not have said He was the only way."

And, do you think he is going to carry you on His shoulders to Heaven? No, rather He said,
Matthew 7:26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
Also,
John 6:63 "...: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life."

The law and the prophets, so simple, accessible to every man. (Matthew 7:12).
The wise and the foolish have always been.
---Nana on 8/23/11


Markv, Not so, for that is totally false doctrine which is found in many so-called Christian churches. The context for why Jesus says this is, that the religious folk questioned why Jesus communicated with and sat down and ate together with sinners, rather than remaining with the righteous and obedient folk like they themselves. And Jesus says to them, "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the Righteous, but Sinners to repentance." Mk.2:17.
---Eloy on 8/23/11


Eloy, if He came to:

The Lord himself says: "I came not to call the Righteous, but Sinners to repentance."

Doesn't that tell you that He did not come to anyone who was righteous because no one is? There is no other way into heaven Eloy, if there was, He would not have said He was the only way. Even the Words of Christ you do not believe. So who is posting falsehood? You.

There is no righteous by nature. Jesus Christ is the way, the Truth and the life. There is no other way into heaven. There is only One Way, Christ Jesus. Anyone trying to enter heaven through another way, God will tell them, "Then I will declare to them, I never knew you, depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness" Matt. 7:23.
Because "all sin and come short of the glory of God."

Nana, when you read a passage read it from the context. 1 Cor. 10:5,6 is not speaking of salvation. Those people that died in the wilderness were disobedient, just like all the lost. Only two were allowed to enter the promise land. No mention of heaven. The two who were allowed to enter the promise land were Joshua and Caleb. All others died including Moses and Aaron who were disqualified from entering the Land. It is an example so that we should not lust after evil things as they lusted. Another lesson for Christians like all the other lessons in the New T.
---Mark_V. on 8/19/11


Here Mark, once more, this is why:

"Paul clarifies,
1 Corinthians 10:5_6 "But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.
Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted."

As for Esau, you can't separate the man from his deeds (actually your cult can and does), God has shown that
he does not:
Hebrews 12:16 "Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright."

Another of your delusions is that God separated you from before time, but the word says YOU WERE NOT HIS,
Romans 9:25 (if it is that you now are...)
---Nana on 8/18/11


Nana, your wrong when you said that God has mercy on whom He wills is because,

"And why did he so say? because Moses pleaded for ALL the people, for God to spare them ALL"

The reason given in Scripture is, because Paul had just said,
"And not only this, but when Rebecca also had conceived by one man, even by our father Isaac, "for the children not yet being born, nor having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works but of Him who calls, it was said to her, "the older shall serve the younger" as it is written, Jacob I have loved, but Esau I have hated"
So He has mercy on whom He wills to have mercy on, Jacob over Esau.

He says to Moses, "I will have mercy on whom I have mercy and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion"

And why did he so say? because Moses pleaded for ALL the people, for God to spare them ALL. And why did God not
concede to him and spared ALL?

Paul clarifies,
1 Corinthians 10:5_6 "But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.
Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted."

God was not pleased with the will and exertion of some and that is why he overthrew them.

Tommy3007, many have conjured different ways to enter heaven. The wicked want to enter heaven without been born of the Spirit, entering heaven carrying their own sins. Nothing forgiven. Rejecting Christ so they argue that no, Jesus is not the only way. It makes God unmerciful. It has to fit what their own mind sees as right. God Word says, "What shall we say then? Is there injustice on God's part? By no means! For He says to Moses, "I will have mercy on whom I have mercy and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion" So it depends not upon man's will or exertion, but upon God's mercy."
Your right, Jesus is the way, the Truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but through Him.
---Mark_V. on 8/17/11


tommy3007 ,

Your argument on the other hand would speak of Christ and God as unmerciful which they are not.
FYI, not all people have the ability to "accepts Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour".
The very young, the very old, the feeble, the less abled and those who have not heard.
FYI, there is no credit fairy and neither a personal saviour.

hallowed be your name."

"forgive us our debts"

Nana, Again I say, your argument is invalid, unless this woman or ANY other person accepts Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour, they will NOT go to Heaven.

"To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord". Does not mean that when you do you go to heaven. It means that there are people who can look past their infirmities and get their focus on God, some can't.

1 2 Corinthians 5:1 our earthly house of this tabernacle
2: 2 Corinthians 5:2 to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:

Mima, It's true "no one can snatch a Believer out of the Father's Hand". Meaning Satan cannot, no other fallen angel, no holy angel, no animal, and no other human being. But, you yourself are still indwelt with FREE-WILL. You yourself can choose to turn from GOD and from His Holy Ways, because GOD does not force people to do things, to live in His Ways, WITHOUT our first choosing to obey. For, His perfect Will is that you'd NEVER sin. Yes, His Grace, Mercy and Forgiveness is greater than our sin, repented of, but, that does not discount the truth that GOD would have you NOT to sin. Therefore, HE is not forcing you, nor "controlling" you. So, you still have free-will.

---Gordon after reading your qualifications for Rob,s wife to meet it occurs to me that you're placing all the obligations on her. Now I would like to inquire if the Lord himself has any obligations in this matter.
Does not the Bible say something like this, no man can snatch you out of my hand, if so it would appear that it is God who does the holding.
---mima on 4/1/11


Blogger9211, If Rob's wife received Salvation through the Son of GOD YAHUSHUA (JESUS CHRIST), and lived for Him in Love, Truth and Obedience as best she could, allowing imperfections under GOD's great Grace and Mercy,...and if she died in this saving Faith, as it certainly seems that she has,...then, she is in Heaven. And, she remembers her husband and two daughters very well, and will be reunited with them, if they remain in YAHUSHUA, in GOD, until they die. It's that simple. Not easy. But, simple. The Love is naturally, infinitely greater in Heaven. So, her love for her family left behind is greater.

Ron, it is regrettable that you lost your wife and your daughters lost their mother, people will give you pleasant platitudes as to where you wife may be currently but all they are just wishful thinking and platitudes. If you wife is among the elect she will be destine for eternal life at a time in the future when the resurrection of the dead and judgment has occurred. Then she will be an inhabitant of the new Jerusalem to be established here on Earth. Currently her soul and spirit are dead she has no concept of passing time or what may be happening on Earth. But just as YHWH created the universe, He will create a new body for your wife suitable for eternity.

I am sorry for your loss.If she accept Jesus as lord and savior into her heart,then yes she is in heaven. It is only through Jesus that we can go to heaven. She is happy in heaven and in no pain. If you have accepted Jesus into your heart,then you will one day see her again. Nana,you are wrong. If you read the new testament in romans 10:9-13,you will see that you have to confess that Jesus is lord and into your heart to get to heaven,and not by what you said. God loves us all,he made us all. But in order to get to heaven we have to accept Jesus as our Lord and savior into our hearts and sincerely mean it.

rob, again i am truly sorry for your loss. to be honest, no one here can answer your question with surety...only conjecture and theory.

our only Hope is in Jesus Christ. raise your two girls in that hope and let them know that Jesus is just and life is in His Hands.

God will bring you the comfort and strength to overcome and help others in the same situation.

Be careful of the candy kisses that can only bring false hope.

God bless you.
---aka on 3/31/11


Rob, I believe that your wife is greatly looking forward to seeing you again in Heaven. It's possible for the LORD to allow your wife to see you and your two daughters, to observe how you're doing. But, I'm not certain that it's happening in this case. But, she wants you and your girls to enjoy what she is now experiencing, more than you even do. For the level of Love in Heaven is greater.
---Gordon on 3/31/11


Nana

Be glad to debate you on that false notion on another thread,

But out of respect I will refrain for now.

God Bless, Paul
---paul on 3/30/11


Whether God allows your dear wife to know about how you and your daughters are doing is something known to Him alone. But there is no reason to believe that she is not interceding for you before the face of God.

We DO know for certain that there is NO cancer in the World to Come, and God Himself will wipe away all tears from her eyes.

May He Himself likewise comfort you in your loss.

Rob...I am so sorry for your loss of your wife and your little girl's mommy. The Bible describes Heaven very well. It is such a happy place and your wife is no longer in pain. If your wife was a Christian she is certainly in Heaven. We don't know whether people in Heaven can see us or not, but we do know that we can see them after our own deaths if we too are Christians. The Bible does not say that anyone can travel to Heaven unless they have passed away. We will pray for you and your daughters.
---KarenD on 3/30/11


My sympathy to your and your young girls. Losing a loved ones is never easy. We all have been there.I would love to say yes to your question but we have no way of knowing,specifically. Was she a born again christian when she passed? Had she placed her faith in Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior? We do not have all of the answers when it comes to heaven and hell. This is why we are to place our faith in Jesus Christ.That is what faith is. A belief in something greater than ourselves, without seeing it.If we continue to hold onto our faith(in Jesus Christ) until the end of time(Jesus' return) we shall be saved.
---Robyn on 3/30/11


i am sorry for your loss. To go with scripture no man has entered heaven ,except Gods son whom came from heaven. Only when all are ressurected may we enter Gods kingdom. She is resting peacefully until jesus comes to call all home. I am not saying this to be mean, but following scripture. I am not agreeing with everyone because Jesus isnot wrong when saying no man has gone to heaven(as of yet)Just know she is at peace ,no longer in pain.

"Sorry for your loss, if she trusted Christ for Salvation she indeed is in Heaven and in the presence of the Lord where their is fullness of joy."
paul on 3/30/11

I am sorry too but I believe a bit differently than "if she trusted Christ for Salvation she indeed is in Heaven"

God has shown many times that he will bless those who are loved, regardless. The love of Moses had God spare a people.
The Love of Christ have brought the offer of salvation to the whole world.
She is in heaven just because you and your girls love her so.

ROb based on what I know about you I believe the answer is yes to both questions. Rob I believe you love the Lord, therefore while it is impossible for us to understand now, this has happened to you for a reason. And God will work it out for you and your girls best interest.
---mima on 3/30/11


Rob, I'm so very truly sorry for the loss of your wife. That must be heartbreaking, my deepest compassion and sympathy goes out to you. I would encourage you to get a copy of Jesse Duplantis's DVD called Close Encounters with the God Kind. He describes his visit to heaven and what is going on there, etc., Was your wife saved? Did she know Jesus as Lord and Savior? Then she is alive and in heaven fellowshipping with other Christians and worshipping Father God and Jesus.
