take stock: heed the three essentials for connecting to God

End times churches are urged to take heed of what Jesus has declared, the three essentials on how humans can connect to God. There is really no other more important thing but to now take stock of the spiritual conditions of the sheep we have brought into Jesus’ fold. Have they these three essentials?

1. “You must be born again, of water and the Spirit.” (John 3:5)

2. “You must worship God in spirit and truth.” (John 4:24)

3. “Out of your heart will flow rivers of living water.” But this He spoke concerning the Spirit…(John 7:38, 39)

The apostles and prophets explained further on the above essentials, all about the Holy Spirit essentials for man connecting to God:

On born again – a compulsory inward change: “having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,” (1 Peter 2:23)

On worship in spirit and truth – an compulsory upward worship: “what is the conclusion then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will also pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding.” (1 Corinthians 14:15)

On river of living water – a compulsory outward flow: “And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the lamb. (Revelation 22:1)

“And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live, wherever the river goes.” (Ezekiel 47:9) rivers of living water
