Confession of Sister Aneka Simons

I am truly thankful to have been born again of the water and the spirit, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again of water and the spirit, he can not enter the Kingdom of God.” (John 3:5) Thanks to our lord Jesus Christ, for perfectly completing salvation “But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever sat down at the right hand of God,” (Hebrews 10:12). I am so thankful that by taking upon Himself the sins of the whole world, by being baptized by John the Baptist “Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” (Matt 3:15) and by shedding His precious blood on the cross, suffering death and being resurrected, He has paid the wages of our sins forever “For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)

I praise Christ who has blessed me to become a sinless child of God and have the Holy Spirit in my heart, through faith in His righteousness “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God”(Ephesians 2:8). I can now stand before my merciful father, blameless and ever joyful to have been born again of Water and the Spirit.

The Gospel of the Water and the Spirit is the perfect and only truth “one Lord, one faith, one baptism;” (Ephesians 4:5) and it is my heartfelt desire and duty as a bondservant of Christ, to lay down my life for the preaching of this true gospel.

 

Right now I am reading Paul. C. Jong’s ‘How can you strengthen your faith’ based on the sermons of Hebrews.

Hebrews is one of my favourite books of the Bible as it explains what true faith really is “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1). Using as examples the faith of saints such as Abraham, Noah and Moses, it is a fact that without faith it is impossible to please God “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6), and as I look back on my walk of faith it is this very lesson, which fills me with such appreciations and joy.

When I was first born again about five years ago, I was happy to live for God so long as I could still live for my own pleasures equally, if not more so. But as I grew in faith I started to hear the Holy Spirit clearer, telling me the reasons why my heart wasn’t settled “For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” (Romans 8:6). It was purely because I knew this was the truth but wasn’t quite ready to let go of the world.

It came to a point when I knew it was either Gods way or my way, and after suffering much in my heart, I knew it would be truly foolish to cast aside the love of God for the passing pleasures of this world “ And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.” (John 2:17) So I determined in my heart to believe in Gods true word and trust that He will guide me, and so with the spiritual guidance of my mum and those ahead of me in faith, my shepherd strengthened my faith and allowed me to submit to His righteousness instead of my own. I am forever thankful to our lord for shining His true light and love on me.

“Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation on you I wait all the day.” (Psalms 25:5)

    Hallelujah, praise the Lord! I too will be forever grateful that God blessed you with the faith in the gospel of the water and the Spirit.
    God bless you for making the wisest choice in your life! May many others also, by having the correct knowledge of the gospel of the water and the Spirit. (Hosea4:6) "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children"
