WASHED by the WORD

 

1 Peter 1:23

King James Version

23 Being born again, 

not of corruptible seed, 

but of incorruptible, 

by the word of God, 

which liveth and abideth for ever.


We don't need spells.

We don't need incantations.

We don't need any other ritual.

We only need GOD's WORD.

That we may know JESUS, and be saved.

And be washed from our sins.

For JESUS is the WORD.

John 1:14

King James Version

14 And the Word was made flesh, 

and dwelt among us, 

(and we beheld his glory, 

the glory as of the only begotten 

of the Father,) 

full of grace and truth.


We are washed by the WORD.

Ephesians 5:25-27

King James Version

25 Husbands, love your wives, 

even as Christ also loved the church, 

and gave himself for it;

26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it 

with the washing of water by the word,

27 That he might present it to himself 

a glorious church, 

not having spot, 

or wrinkle, 

or any such thing; 

but that it should be holy 

and without blemish.


That's why JESUS said we HAVE to be BORN AGAIN.

That we may be BORN of WATER, and of the SPIRIT.

John 3:5-7

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water 

and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.


The WORD has REGENERATING power.

Titus 3:4-5

King James Version

4 But after that the kindness and love 

of God our Saviour toward man appeared,

5 Not by works of righteousness 

which we have done, 

but according to his mercy he saved us, 

by the washing of regeneration, 

and renewing of the Holy Ghost;


For GOD is the FOUNTAIN of LIVING WATERS.

Jeremiah 2:13

King James Version

13 For my people have committed two evils; 

they have forsaken me 

the fountain of living waters, 

and hewed them out cisterns, 

broken cisterns, 

that can hold no water.


He is the LIVING GOD.

Jeremiah 10:10

King James Version

10 But the Lord is the true God, 

he is the living God, 

and an everlasting king: 

at his wrath the earth shall tremble, 

and the nations shall not be able to abide 

his indignation.


His SPIRIT gives LIFE.

2 Corinthians 3:6

King James Version

6 Who also hath made us able ministers 

of the new testament; 

not of the letter, 

but of the spirit: 

for the letter killeth, 

but the spirit giveth life.


LIFE can only come from the LIVING GOD.

Which He gave us, through His Son, JESUS.

John 3:16

King James Version

16 For God so loved the world, 

that he gave his only begotten Son, 

that whosoever believeth in him 

should not perish, 

but have everlasting life.


It is time to LISTEN to the WORD of GOD.

And to LIVE by FAITH.

Romans 10:17

King James Version

17 So then faith cometh by hearing, 

and hearing by the word of God.


And to revere the WORD of TRUTH.

2 Timothy 2:15

King James Version

15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, 

a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, 

rightly dividing the word of truth.


For the days are evil.

Ephesians 5:14-16

King James Version

14 Wherefore he saith, 

Awake thou that sleepest, 

and arise from the dead, 

and Christ shall give thee light.

15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, 

not as fools, but as wise,

16 Redeeming the time, 

because the days are evil.
