1 Peter · Exegesis of Light

the Gospel invitation to all men…

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: [1 Peter 3:21]

A man must awaken to the reality that this Jesus, having suffered and died as our substitute on the cross, rose up again from the dead. By the power of the Holy Spirit, He was raised up into the full glory of God.

Today, He is alive and seated on the very throne of God. Today, any man who truly sees Him for what He did….and what He is today…has opportunity to partake in His very life, nature and inheritance.

Today, any man who sees Jesus as He is in the light of the word of Grace and declares Him – for what He truly is – Lord!; shall be born again. He shall be stripped off in his spirit the old nature of sin and shall come to truly and literally be born of God…in the spirit…bona fide partaker of His life and nature!

This is the new birth in Christ. this is the gospel invitation to all men…come be born again…come be born of God…come be partaker of His life and nature…come embrace the fatherhood of God and the Lordship of Jesus and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit!
Come receive the inheritance bequeathed to all men by Jesus Christ!

Thank you Lord Jesus!

This is the reality behind water baptism. This is what it signifies.

Dear reader…are you truly baptized….are you immersed into the Holy Spirit…are you born again?…
