Believing is great and necessary, the scripture says in John7:38-39, He that believeth on me as the scripture hath said(Jesus talking), out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.(but this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him SHOULD receive: for the Holyghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.) the Holyghost could not come and dwell in us until Jesus ascended back to heaven, but you should receive it if you believe on Him as the scripture has said!

The Holy Spirit abides in all Christians just not as defined by Pentecostals. So the answer would have to be with a question. How do you define Holy Ghost. The answer might be no according to you definition or it could be yes according to your definition. There is just so much misunderstanding of what the Holy Ghost or Spirit is. This would also be related to what is the unpardonable sin. Which is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. How do you determine this when people are so confused as to what the Holy Spirit actually is?

John 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18 I will not leave you comfortless I will come to you. Jesus was with them but promised to come and dwell in them. Vrs26 but the Comforter which is the Holyghost, whom the Father will send in my name(Jesus), he will teach you all things and bring all things back to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you! As for blasphemy against Holyghost I let God be the judge of when a person has done that, only He knows the Heart:) I believe the Holyghost is God dwelling in man! And believing is the first step to salvation!

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is simple.

DEATH, BURIAL, RESURRECTION
Jesus Christ died for our sins, paving the way for us to BE BORN AGAIN, was buried, and was then resurrected the third day.

Not only did Christ die so that we could go to heaven, but so we could have full access to him, 24/7, because when he died, he tore the veil that kept us from being able to connect with him on an Intimate level. That level is called the HOLY GHOST.

The SECOND HALF of the Gospel is OUR Death, Burial, and Resurrection: Dying to our selves(i.e. repenting, or turning away, from our sins), Being Buried in the wonderful name of Jesus Christ, and Being Born Again, walking in newness of life through the gift of the Holy Ghost.

It is a GIFT that God wants to give to each of us. It IS your ticket into heaven. The saddest thing is to see good people who don't believe they need that ticket to enter into God's kingdom.

In II Thessalonians 1:7-9 we read that, "When the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power."

If this isn't clear that we are supposed to be baptized and recieve the holy ghost, I don't know what else to say to clear this up. But it's as clear as day.

If you're asking if you have to get it because you think it's hard, I promise it's not. Getting the Holy Ghost and having God in your heart at all times is the most wonderful treasure. Believe me.

Hopefully this answers your question clearly!
Have a great day!

If u have received Jesus in your heart and you have allowed him to enter your heart and wash you of your sins you will get into to heaven, the Holy Spirit is present in all true Christians so I would say yes, but I do not believe you have to jump and flop and scream, etc to receive the Holy Spirit I believe all Christians receive the Spirit in their own ways but instead of asking everyone it is all in red, black, and white called the Bible :)

    What must I do to be saved?  Here are some
Scriptures that relate the word "Lord" to salvation.   
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord
shall be saved" (Romans 10:13).  "But
we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be
saved, even as they" (Acts 15:11).    "And
Crispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all
his house; and many of the Corinthians hearing believed, and were baptized" 
(Acts 18:8).  "That if thou shalt confess with
thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath
raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.    For with
the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession
is made unto salvation" (Romans 10:9-10).  We must be
willing to confess that Jesus is Lord in order to be saved.

someone actually gets it . Good job because my opinion on some of the misunderstood quotes I seen here make me believe id rather set in a room full of atheist for a chance to convert them with truth than to set in a church with a congregation full of warped reality . Atleast atheist are void of GOD & know it . All denominations claim their particular way is correct & has butchered GODs word beyond even the translators . I commend you in making it known as "spirit" as this is truth . Ghost is a bed sheet over someones head .

Well put.
I've not read any or all post on this one, but I can only imagine.
What is amazing, is how so many who know the very idea of ghost is supernatural, what to tell people how to get "it" by doing something physical.:)
Plus you're right, it is easier to help convert an atheist, then a very religous person.

Simple as this.
Actually, being born of the water is referring to being in your mother's womb. Being born of the spirit is when you ask God to save you and come into your heart. Therefore, you do not have to be baptized to go to heaven. Just ask God into your heart. He will not say no.

You say be baptized in Jesus name?
I agree, if you must be physicaly baptized to go to heaven,then what name you're baptized in must also be essential!

Problem? Jesus Himself, said to go bapitzing in the name of the father the son and the holy spirit, did He not?

Either way, it kinda makes me wish I could have been the thief on the cross, not the one who railed at Jesus, but the other one, who just realized he was getting what he deserved, then realized who Jesus was.

I don't think, they took him down, so that he could go to church for a sec.:)

No, instead they went out to break his legs, and to break all their legs, to speed up their death!

Oh, but wait, when they got to Jesus they never broke Hid legs, as it was written, becouse He was already dead.

The momment someone dies, their will and testament is in effect,right then!

Kinda like if granny dies, and leaves me her house.
I may not be living in the house at the momment she dies, but the house is mine the very momment she dies.

Yes Jesus said to baptize in the name of the father, son, and the holy ghost i too once debated over this until God gave me understnding.

there is one God his name is Jesus
the father , son and the holy ghost these 3 are one

Jesus acts 4:12 neither is there salvation in any other for there is none other name gien among men whereby we must be saved

John 14:6-12 Jesus explains that he and the father are one

so the NAME of the father ,son and the holyghost is Jesus
Acts 2:38 baptism in Jesus name Luke 24:47 preached in his name
Mark 16:16 on baptism

and Jesus rose from the dead defeating death hell and the grave

In no way shape or form is baptism a commandment for salvation. Its a wonderful thing to do but NOT a requirement. I heard everything baptist preachers can throw at ya & their best is a half of verse they try to express as a commandment. The bottom line is JOHN 3:16 that is what it takes for salvation, without this all other futher words in the book will only be seen as words in a book.

i underserstand that you have to make it crystal clear to counter act baptist forceful teaching with a minute point of truth for sake of bringing it into to light but you shouldnt even have to . NO LAW was done away with . Blood sacrafices were done away with because CHRIST was the ultiment sacrafice for 1 & all time but all 10 COMMANDMENTS still exist ! HE states HE did not come to change 1 jot or 1 iota of the law but instead came to fulfil the law. My point is the word has never changed from the beginning ( he did not add any new stipulations for salvation ) CHRIST came to fulfil HIS destiny for all to have a chance. Baptism is wonderful & SYMBOLIC much like the washing of the feet is SYMBOLIC which Christ performed Himself . Preachers use this like holding a gun to their congregations head so they keep coming back or never reach heaven. To me GOD always has this job of judgement only & HE will decide who is accepted.

I agree, yet He did say that we may KNOW we have eternal life.
I have no problems with baptizm.
Even if I agree with them, that one MUST be baptized, in order to be saved like so many did in acts, I then ask then what?

Is that person saved from that point on by grace?

They don't believe so.
Each group has "their" list of other stuff one must do.

Christ came to fullfil the law, and He did just that.

Plus who were the 10 commandments given to?

I was never a jew.

A person can KNOW where they are going, as far as rewards and losses for a christian, that will be made know at the judgement seat of christ.

The white throne judgement is where the lost go, to be read off their works, before sent to hell.

Many try to combine the two judgements, but they are not the same.

Many that may be christians, that stay in these works based churches will only look at thrmselves.

It is a full time job and then some trying to measure up to Gods standards, if one believes Jesus Christ was not enough
it is impossible.
