2 Timothy 2:
15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
I taught these scriptures in Water of Life Christian Training School beginning in September 1983 and I provided free audio tapes for all until 2002, at which time God told me to throw them away. I have learned over the years that Water of Life Christian Training School students and others that received my teaching tapes; how that afterwards, went forth and sinned or continued in sin; exchanged jokes by email, wrote perverse email, exchanged pornographic images, spoke with filthy language to one another, had drunken parties, watched movies of various kinds, engaged in sexual activities; oral sex, sodomy, licking, covetous activities; coveting things, coveting neighbor’s holdings, coveting business which is idolatry; eating, drinking, raising up to play which is idolatry, vacations, using habit forming drugs, adultery, fornication, all while attending my meetings in various crusades in America. These people laid all of their sins upon me. But their sins were not able to destroy me; God upheld me.
Today I have turned a corner. I am on television twice on Sundays in all 50 states, on ten local television stations in ten cities, shortwave, live stream and Roku.
I will not re-teach you this word, but I have provided an outline that I followed in Water of Life Christian Training School. If you want to be free and follow God study what I have taught here;
12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
I will continue in prayer for everyone that Christ be formed in them again.
REPENTANCE FROM DEAD WORKS
#1 REPENTANCE ALL COME TO REPENTANCE
REPENTANCE = CHANGE OF THE MIND (HAVE ANOTHER MIND),
DO THE WILL OF GOD (REVEALED IN HIS WORD)
DEAD WORKS (DEAD DEEDS) = THAT WHICH IS NOT OF FAITH
DEAD = NEKROS, WORKS = ERGON = DEED
17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
2 Peter 3:
9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
4 Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?
44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
1 Timothy 2:
4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
2 Corinthians 7:
8 For though I made you sorry with a letter, I do not repent, though I did repent: for I perceive that the same epistle hath made you sorry, though it were but for a season.
9 Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing.
10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
11 For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge! In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.
12 Wherefore, though I wrote unto you, I did it not for his cause that had done the wrong, nor for his cause that suffered wrong, but that our care for you in the sight of God might appear unto you.
2 Timothy 2:
23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.
24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
REPENTANCE BRINGS TO THE ACKNOWLEDGING OF THE TRUTH
