SIGNS OF BEING TRULY SAVED!

SIGNS OF BEING TRULY SAVED!


Some people sincerely believe that they are true Christians because they belong to a certain church denomination by being baptized into the specific church denomination. I heard one preacher say that you can live and sleep in a garage but that does not make you be a car. And in the same way, simply going to or belonging to a certain church denomination does not make a person be a true born-again Spirit-filled Christian that knows beyond any shadow of a doubt that they are saved and that they will receive eternal life in the world to come.

So then, HOW can a person truly know if they are a truly born-again Spirit-filled Christian? How can a person who sincerely believes that they are indeed a Christian know for SURE that they are truly SAVED?

Here are some of the many SIGNS that a truly born-again Spirit-filled Christians will experience in their life. I will list them briefly in no specific order first. And then I will go over them again, one by one, and give you some Scriptures to show you that these are sound Biblical WITNESSES that assure people that they are TRULY saved beyond any shadow of a doubt.


SIGN #1.


You will notice a CHANGE in you. You will notice that there is something DIFFERENT about you. You will not feel the same as you used to feel. You will sense a WITNESS inside of you that lets you know that you are truly saved. The following signs are some examples of what I mean by this.


SIGN #2.


Some Christians feel like a great weight has been lifted from them the very moment they first believe. With other Christians, that feeling of truly being forgiven of all their sins comes later. But with some Christians, they have to fight the good fight of faith until they finally feel that PEACE. It could take days, weeks, perhaps even months before they make that final quality decision to believe God’s word OVER their feelings and THEN that feel of truly being forgiven comes to them.


SIGN #3.


You will notice that you have a LOVE for the things of God. At first, you may only have a deep desire to SHARE with others that you are saved. Something on the inside of you seems to be nudging you to talk to your family and friends about the Bible. You simply have a deep desire for others to have what you just received.


SIGN #4.


And with this LOVE for the things of God some Christians experience a deep hunger to read God’s word. So they will read the Bible. They will read Christian books. They desire to go to church every chance they get. They simply have a HUNGER to learn more and more about God. Now, some Christians doe not experience this deep desire right away. But at some point after being truly saved that hunger to know MORE of God comes to them.


SIGN #5.


You seem to UNDERSTAND what the Bible is saying AFTER you are truly saved then you did BEFORE you were saved. This does not mean that you understand every verse of Scripture that you read. But rather, as you read some of the same verses that you may have read several times before and you did NOT understand what they mean, you now suddenly know what they mean without anyone explaining those verses to you.


SIGN #6.


You will experience a deep desire on the inside of you to PLEASE God. Your flesh may still want to do the same things that you used to do with your friends but something inside of you keeps telling you to no longer do those things. So you will notice that change in you that separates you from the “worldly” pleasures of the world that you once thought were perfectly alright to do.


SIGN #7.


You will also notice that your friends are noticing the change in you. And will some Christians, their flesh does not want to lose that friendship with the worldly pleasures. But the CONSCIENCE is much stronger than it used to be and it is HARDER to ignore than it was BEFORE you were truly saved. You can still fight AGAINST your conscience but there will be a CONVICTION inside of you telling you to stop and repent of doing what you now know deep inside of you is WRONG to do.


SIGN #8.


You will notice that Scriptures keep coming to your mind throughout the day and your mind keeps meditating on those verses of Scripture. It is like God is writing his word on your HEART. You may not recognize that God is actually writing his word on your heart right away. But as you continue to read and study the Bible your mind will have a flashback so to speak to bring to your remembrance of those times when it seemed that all you could think about was God’s word.


SIGN #9.


As you spend more time seeking the things of God the pleasures of the world will fade away. And some of the things that you once thought that you could not live WITHOUT, you no longer DESIRE. And with some Christians, they can no longer “stomach” being around their friends who are still fulfilling the lust of their flesh doing what you used to do and think nothing about it.

SIGN #10.


Not only will you experience a change in your lifestyle of living that is moving away from the sinful pleasures of the world but you will also notice that you are esteeming other people ABOVE yourself. You seem to WANT to help people where before you were saved you AVOIDED doing any more than you HAD to do. You seem to have a TRUE LOVE for other people and that love inside of you does not expect anything in return for what you do for others.


SIGN #11.


You will physically FEEL the PRESENCE of God when you sincerely give God thanks and praise from deep within your heart for saving you. You will have a JOY that you never experience before with any kind of worldly pleasure. It is a joy that brings PEACE and assurance that God LOVES you so very much. It is a joy that you can experience over and over throughout the rest of your life. It is a joy that does not fade away quickly but rather it lingers for days and even weeks at a time.



SIGN #12.


This SIGN is only experienced by truly born-again Christians who are FILLED to overflowing of the Holy Spirit where God’s presence can be physically felt all over you and you begin to speak in another language that you did not learn from any man. That language will rise up from the inside of you and by FAITH you will just seem to know to SPEAK out what is in your HEART. This experience brings that JOY that I talked about in sign number 11. But this experience of being BAPTIZED in the Holy Spirit takes that JOY to even a much higher level. It is a joy that is PERMANENTLY embedded in you that your HEART will never forget. Christians who experience the BAPTISM of the Holy Spirit will ALWAYS know that they are SAVED and that they will, without fail, FIGHT the good fight of FAITH until their last breath or until Jesus returns. They will ENDURE unto the END to receive eternal life in the world to come. They KNOW that they KNOW that they are TRULY saved.


NOW FOR THE SCRIPTURES!


In this section, I will give you Scripture that teaches us of each of these SIGNS that true born-again Christians experience at some point in their walk with God as a Christian. You may not experience ANY SIGN at the very moment that you are born-again. But over time, every Christian should experience MOST of these signs. 

And if YOU have not yet experience ANY of these signs then it is very likely that you are NOT a TRUE born-again Christian. You may sincerely believe that you are a Christian. You may even look, act, and talk like a Christian. You may even sincerely believe that love God with all your heart. But you are NOT a sound BIBLICAL true born-again Christian. But rather you are simply following and TRUSTING in your church denomination to save you. For you see, there are GOOD people even in the many false religions of the world who worship FALSE gods. And they SINCERELY BELIEVE with all their heart that they are on the right path that leads to heaven. But they are sincerely WRONG!

The Bible is the ONLY word of TRUTH that has the words that lead to eternal life written on its pages. And the Bible clearly teaches us of these SIGNS that a TRUE believer in Jesus will experience. So you can either HOPE that you are saved. Or you can KNOW that you are saved. Do you want to just continue on with your life HOPING that you will go to heaven? Or do you want to stop WONDERING and hoping and start KNOWING that you will, without fail, RECEIVE eternal life in the world to come?

If you have ANY doubt that you are truly saved then I implore you to click on the link to the study called “THE SIMPLICITY of the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ!” Pray the prayer in that study and BELIEVE in your heart that God has forgiven you of all your past sins. Do it right now if you have ANY doubt as to whether or not you are TRULY saved. And then come back and finish this study so that you can know the Scriptures to help others who SAY that they are Christians but the LIFESTYLE and what the BELIEVE proves that they are NOT truly born-again Spirit-filled BIBLICAL Christians.

Here are the 12 signs that a truly saved born-again Christians will experience with the Scriptures to show that these are sound Biblical sings to truly being saved.


SIGN #1.


You will notice a CHANGE in you. You will notice that there is something DIFFERENT about you. You will not feel the same as you used to feel. You will sense a WITNESS inside of you that lets you know that you are truly saved. The following signs are some examples of what I mean by this.

 1 John 5:


“If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: (In other words. Having FAITH in the Gospel of Jesus Christ that was TAUGHT to you by your church denomination is a good witness. BUT the INNER witness that come for God is GREATER. And that great witness is the Holy Spirit DWELLING IN you who is ASSURING you that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is TRUE and faithful) for this is the witness of God which he has testified of his Son. 

10.  He that believes on the Son of God HAS the WITNESS IN HIMSELF: he that believes not God has made him a liar; because he believes not the record that God gave of his Son. (In other words, those who do not TRULY believe the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ do NOT have the WITNESS of the Holy Spirit DWELLING IN them. They are Christians in NAME ONLY. They are simply trusting in their church DENOMINATION)

11.  And this is the record, that God HAS GIVEN ETERNAL LIFE, (Speaking of the EARNEST of the Holy Spirit taht dwells in EVERY true born-again Christian with the PROMISE to receive eternal life in the world to come) and this life is IN his Son. (Meaning that as long as a true Christian REMAINS IN the TRUE FAITH of Jesus under the NEW COVENANT taught in the New Testament unto the END will, without fail. RECEIVE eternal life in the world to come)

12.  He that HAS the Son HAS life; and he that has NOT the Son of God has NOT life. (In other words, all those who believe and follow another religion other the Christianity, including the Jews, do NOT have the earnest of the Holy Spirit dwelling in them. They have no promise of eternal life abiding in them. And any Christian who leaves the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ no longer has the Son of God. And without true faith in the Son of God as the ONLY atonement for your sins then you do NOT have eternal life abiding in you. But rather you have a FALSE hope abiding in you. SOME church denominations that say that they are Christians church denominations or organization only give their followers the witness of MEN. So their followers have no ASSURANCE that they are saved right now. But rather they only have the HOPE that they will be good enough to get to heaven after doing all that they can or all that they do whatever their church denomination teaches them that they MUST do in order to be saved)

13.  These things have I written unto you that (ALREADY) believe on the name of the Son of God; that you may KNOW that you HAVE eternal life, (Again, speaking of the earnest of the Holy Spirit dwelling in every TRUE born-again BELIEVE in Jesus Christ as the SON OF the living God who died for their sins)

AND that you may (CONTINUE TO TRULY) BELIEVE on the name of the Son of God.”

SIGN #2.


Some Christians feel like a great weight has been lifted from them the very moment they first believe. With other Christians, that feeling of truly being forgiven of all their sins comes later. But with some Christians, they have to fight the good fight of faith until they finally feel that PEACE. It could take days, weeks, perhaps even months before they make that final quality decision to believe God’s word OVER their feelings and THEN that feel of truly being forgiven comes to them.


Romans 8:1.


There is therefore now NO CONDEMNATION to them which are IN Christ Jesus, who walk NOT after the flesh, BUT (Who walk in obedience) after the Spirit.”


Romans 5:1,2.


Therefore being JUSTIFIED BY FAITH, (And NOT by any WORKS that we can do) we have PEACE with God THROUGH our Lord Jesus Christ

2.  By whom also we have access by faith into this GRACE (Of being JUSTIFIED by God in God FORGIVING us of all our sins simply by BELIEVING the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ) wherein we stand and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”


John 14:26,27.


But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. 

27.  PEACE  (Comfort, assurance that God LOVES you) I leave with you, my PEACE I give unto you: NOT as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” 



SIGN #3.


You will notice that you have a LOVE for the things of God. At first, you may only have a deep desire to SHARE with others that you are saved. Something on the inside of you seems to be nudging you to talk to your family and friends about the Bible. You simply have a deep desire for others to have what you just received.


Revelation 2:2-4.


“I know your works, and your labor, and your patience, and how you can not bear them which are evil: and you have tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and have found them, liars: 

3.  And have borne, and have patience, and for my name's sake have labored, and have not fainted. 

4.  Nevertheless, I have somewhat against you, because you have left your FIRST LOVE.”


Matthew 24:12,13.


“And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall grow cold

13.  But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”


Hebrews 6:8-12.


“But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned. 

9.  But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak. 

10.  For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labor of LOVE, which you have showed toward his name,(When you first believed)  in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister. (But perhaps not as much as to did when you were first saved)

11.  And we desire that every one of you do show the same DILIGENCE (Or your FIRST LOVE of all the things of God) to the FULL ASSURANCE of hope UNTO THE END

12.  That you be NOT slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience (Doing the WILL of Almighty God the Father unto the end)  inherit the promises.”


SIGN #4.


And with this LOVE for the things of God, some Christians experience a deep hunger to read God’s word. So they will read the Bible. They will read Christian books. They desire to go to church every chance they get. They simply have a HUNGER to learn more and more about God. Now, some Christians doe not experience this deep desire right away. But at some point after being truly saved that hunger to know MORE of God comes to them.


Acts 17:11.


“These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”


2 Timothy 2:15.


Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”


Romans 12:2.


And be NOT conformed to this world: BUT be you transformed BY the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, WILL of God.”


SIGN #5.


You seem to UNDERSTAND what the Bible is saying AFTER you are truly saved, then you did BEFORE you were saved. This does not mean that you understand every verse of Scripture that you read. But rather, as you read some of the same verses that you may have read several times before and you did NOT understand what they mean, you now suddenly know what they mean without anyone explaining those verses to you.


1 Corinthians 2:9-16.


“But as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love him. 

10.  BUT God has revealed them unto us BY his Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, yea, the deep things of God

11.  For what man knows the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? (In other words, another person can not know what is in your HEART but YOU can know what is in your OWN heart) even so, the things of God knows no man, but the Spirit of God. (In other words, God knows what is hi his own heart concerning what God has prepared for those who LOVE him. And God has given to every true believer in Jesus and earnest of his Holy Spirit to dwell IN them to be our TEACHER so that we can understand the word of God when we read and study the Bible) 

12.  Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, (Referring the the DECEIVING spirit of Satan who does NOT want the world to UNDERSTAND God’s love for them when they read the Bible. We have NOT that spirit anymore) BUT (After we are saved we receive) the spirit which is of God; THAT we might KNOW the things that are freely given to us of God

13.  Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Ghost teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 

14.  But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. (This is why some Christians who are Christians in name only can not understand what they are reading when they read the Bible. And when the Bible does not make sense to them unless someone EXPLAINS it to them then they are less likely to read and study the Bible on their OWN to see if what they are being taught is the truth or not the truth.)

15.  But he that is spiritual (Or he who is being led by the Holy Spirit as his of her teacher) judges all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 

16.  For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.” 


1 John 2:26,26.


“These things have I written unto you concerning them that SEDUCE you. (Or concerning those who are DECEIVING you by saying that ONLY THEY can correcting interpret the Scriptures. And if you do not follow and obey all that they teach then you can not be saved) 

27.  BUT (They are deceiving you because) the ANOINTING which you have received of him abides IN you, (Meaning that the Holy Spirit that you have received from Almighty God is DWELLING IN you as your TEACHER to lead and guide you into all truth) and you need NOT that ANY MAN teach you: but as the same anointing TEACHES you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it has taught you, you shall abide in him.” 


Romans 8:


“For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit

6.  For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace

7. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be

8.  So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. (Including those Christians in SOME church denominations that are following ANOTHER gospel that Jesus did NOT teach his Apostles under the New Covenant written in the New Testament of the Bible)

9.  But you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, IF SO BE that the Spirit of God DWELLS IN  you. Now if any man has NOT the Spirit of Christ, he is NONE of his. (Even if you belong to a church denomination that SAYS that they are a Christian church but in truth, they are teaching a DIFFERENT gospel that has been PERVERTED by ADDING man-made church TRADITIONS and eevn other books to the Bible that they call scripture but those books are NOT Scripture)

10.  And IF Christ be IN you, (Or IF the ANOINTING of the Holy Spirit is dwelling IN you) the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.”


SIGN #6.


You will experience a deep desire on the inside of you to PLEASE God. Your flesh may still want to do the same things that you used to do with your friends but something inside of you keeps telling you to no longer do those things. So you will notice that change in you that separates you from the “worldly” pleasures of the world that you once thought were perfectly alright to do.


1 Thessalonians 1:4.


“Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as you have received of us how you ought to walk and to please God, so you would abound more and more.”


Acts 5:29.


“Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.” 


Mark 7:6-9.


 “He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me

7.  Howbeit in VAIN do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of MEN

8.  For laying aside the COMMANDMENT of God, (Speaking of the ONE COMMANDMENT in the singular that we MUST obey in order to be saved. And the ONE command is to believe the WORDS of Jesus that he taught under the NEW COVENANT written if the New Testament WITHOUT the ADDING od the TRADITIONS of MEN) you hold the TRADITION of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things you do. (The TRADITIONS of men can be ANYTHING that CONTRADICTS what Jesus teaches us under the New Covenant written in the New Testament)

9.  And he said unto them, Full well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your OWN tradition.” 


This means that some Christian church denominations place what the church denomination teaches as doctrine OVER and ABOVE what the Bible ITSELF teaches. And some church denominations have gone as far to TAMPER with the Bible ITSELF by ADDING words, CHANGING words, and taking AWAY words so that THEIR translation of the Bible better supports what they have INTERPRETED certain verses in the Bible to mean to THEM. I guess they thought, why to argue when you can change the Bible to FIT what you believe?


SIGN #7.


You will also notice that your friends are noticing the change in you. And will some Christians, their flesh does not want to lose that friendship with the worldly pleasures. But the CONSCIENCE is much stronger than it used to be. And thus your conscience is HARDER to ignore AFTER you are saved than it was BEFORE you were truly saved. You can still fight AGAINST your conscience but there will be a CONVICTION inside of you telling you to stop and repent of doing what you now know deep inside of you is WRONG to do.


Read Romans chapter 8 from the King James Version.


Luke 6:22,23.


“Blessed are you, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake. (There is one of those Jesus freaks. True Christian will SHINE as lights in the world and the world hates the LIGHT of God shining in you. So they will MOCK and persecute you. Now the world does not mind Christians who are Christians in NAME ONLY)

23.  Rejoice you in that day, (That you are mocked, persecuted, and your closest friend and even your own family SEPARATES you from their company because of your LOVE for Jesus and for the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ) and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.” 


SIGN #8.


You will notice that Scriptures keep coming to your mind throughout the day and your mind keeps meditating on those verses of Scripture. It is like God is writing his word on your HEART. You may not recognize that God is actually writing his word on your heart right away. But as you continue to read and study the Bible your mind will have a flashback so to speak to bring to your remembrance of those times when it seemed that all you could think about was God’s word.


Hebrews 8:9-13.


NOT according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, says the Lord. 

10.  For this is the covenant (Speaking of the New nad BETTER Covenant that was established in the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross) that I will make with the house of Israel AFTER those days, says the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: 

11.  And they shall not teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. 

12.  For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. 

13.  In that he says, A new covenant, he has made the first old. Now that which decays and grows old is ready to vanish away.”


SIGN #9.


As you spend more time seeking the things of God the pleasures of the world will fade away. And some of the things that you once thought that you could not live WITHOUT, you no longer DESIRE. And with some Christians, they can no longer “stomach” being around their friends who are still fulfilling the lust of their flesh doing what you used to do and think nothing about it.


Hebrews 10:38,39.


“Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draws back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him

39.  But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition, but of them, that believe to the saving of the soul.” 


 2 Peter 2:20-22.


For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, (Or though the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ) they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning

21.  For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment (Meaning the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ) delivered unto them. 

22.  But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog has turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.” 



SIGN #10.


Not only will you experience a change in your lifestyle of living that is moving away from the sinful pleasures of the world but you will also notice that you are esteeming other people ABOVE yourself. You seem to WANT to help people where before you were saved you AVOIDED doing any more than you HAD to do. You seem to have a TRUE LOVE for other people and that love inside of you does not expect anything in return for what you do for others.



Matthew 25:31-

“When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 

32.  And before he shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats

33.  And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 

34.  Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, you blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 

35.  For I was hungry, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and you gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 

36.  Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and you visited me: I was in prison, and you came unto me. 

37.  Then shall the RIGHTEOUS answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we that you were hungry, and fed you? Or thirsty, and gave you drink

38.  When saw we you a stranger, and took you in? or naked, and clothed you? 

39.  Or when saw we that you were sick, or in prison, and came unto you? 

40.  And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me

41.  Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 

42.  For I was hungry, and you gave me NO meat: I was thirsty, and you gave me NO drink

43.  I was a stranger, and you took me NOT in: naked, and you clothed me NOT: sick, and in prison, and you visited me NOT

44.  Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we that you were hungry, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did NOT minister unto you? 

45.  Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as you did it NOT to one of the least of these, you did it NOT to me

46.  And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the RIGHTEOUS  into life eternal.”


James 1:26,27.


“If any man among you seem to be religious and bridles not his tongue, but deceives his own heart, this man's religion is VAIN

27.  Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.”


SIGN #11.


You will physically FEEL the PRESENCE of God when you sincerely give God thanks and praise from deep within your heart for saving you. You will have a JOY that you never experience before with any kind of worldly pleasure. It is a joy that brings PEACE and assurance that God LOVES you so very much. It is a joy that you can experience over and over throughout the rest of your life. It is a joy that does not fade away quickly but rather it lingers for days and even weeks at a time.



Acts 10:44-48.


“While Peter yet spake these words, (Of the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ) the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word

45.  And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost

46.  FOR (Or BECAUSE) they HEARD them SPEAK with TONGUES, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, 

47.  Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we

48.  And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.”


1 Corinthians 14:17-19.


“For you verily givest thanks well, (Or you TRULY do give God THANKS, perhaps better than in any other way by your praising God in other tongues) but the other is not edified. 

18.  I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than you all

19.  YET IN the church, I had RATHER speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might TEACH others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue.”


So be like the Apostle Paul and MAGNIFY God in other tongues at home in your private time of prayer. Or pray in other tongues when everyone there in the church service is filled with the Holy Spirit as well and you have gathered together specifically to make intercessory prayer for others to travail in the Holy Spirit to BIRTH the unsaved into the kingdom of God.


SIGN #12.


This SIGN is only experienced by truly born-again Christians who are FILLED to overflowing of the Holy Spirit where God’s presence can be physically felt all over you and by faith you will begin to speak in another language that you did not learn from any man. That language will rise up from the inside of you and by FAITH you will just seem to know to SPEAK out what is in your HEART. 

This experience brings that JOY that I talked about in sign number 11. But this experience of being BAPTIZED in the Holy Spirit takes that JOY to even a much higher level. It is a joy that is PERMANENTLY embedded in you that your HEART will never forget. Christians who experience the BAPTISM of the Holy Spirit will ALWAYS know that they are SAVED and that they will, without fail, FIGHT the good fight of FAITH until their last breath or until Jesus returns. They will ENDURE unto the END to receive eternal life in the world to come. They KNOW that they KNOW that they are TRULY saved.


John 14:17.  


“Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but you know him; for he dwells WITH you, and shall be IN you.”


The Holy Spirit can be WITH the unsaved but the Holy Spirit will ONLY DWELL IN true born-again Christians.

Every true born-again Christian receives the indwelling of the Holy Spirit the very moment that they are saved. But not ALL Christians speak in other tongues the very moment that they are saved. In fact, this only happened one time in Acts 10:44-48. You can clearly see that these gentile Christians believed the words that Peter spake to them to be saved. And even while Peter was still yet preaching the true Gospel of Jesus Christ these just saved Gentile were BAPTIZED in the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues. And that is HOW the Jewish Christians KNEW that they were SAVED. It was BECAUSE they HEARD them SPEAKING in OTHER TONGUES just like they spoke in other tongues when they were saved. So speaking in other tongues is just ONE of the many SIGNS that you can KNOW that you are TRULY saved. They knew and understood the words of Jesus that the UNSAVED cannot RECEIVE the Holy Spirit.


Acts 10:44-48.


“While Peter yet spake these words, (Of the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ) the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word

45.  And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost

46.  FOR (Or BECAUSE) they HEARD them SPEAK with TONGUES, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, 

47.  Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we

48.  And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.”


Again, if YOU have NOT experienced at least ONE one these signs and you confess that you are a Christian then I implore you to read the SIMPLICITY of the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ and put your FAITH in the TRUE Gospel of Jesus as opposed to putting our faith in your church DENOMINATION and what they have been teaching you as HOW to be saved.
