Just as the days of Noah...


But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Christianity Is a Growth Process How many times have you heard non-Christians, judging one who professes Christ, say in disgust, Well if that's Christianity, I don't want any of it!

How many judge GOD by the way professing Christians live? How many assume that one must live a perfect life, before he can become a Christian?

How many say, If I could give up smoking, I'd become a Christian.

How many think a Christian is supposed to be perfect, never doing anything wrong? Suppose you do see or hear about a Christian doing something WRONG. Does that mean he is a hypocrite that he is not really a Christian, after all?

Is it possible for one to actually SIN, while he is a Christian, and still remain a truly converted Christian?

I suppose many would reply in the negative. But here is a vital point you need to UNDERSTAND! It's hard to believe but TRUE! Few know just what is a Christian. Few know HOW one is converted whether suddenly, all at once, or gradually. Does conversion happen immediately, or is it a PROCESS? IT'S HIGH TIME WE UNDERSTAND!

The TRUTH is that there is a sense in which true conversion does take place at a definite time all at once. But it is also true that in another sense, conversion is worked out gradually a process of development and growth.

Now NOTICE CAREFULLY!

WHEN does one really become a Christian? It is when he receives God's Holy Spirit. In Romans 8:9, we read that unless we have the Holy Spirit, we are not Christ's not Christians.

There is a definite TIME when God's Spirit enters into one. At the very moment he receives the Holy Spirit, he is, in this first sense, converted. Yes, all at once! If he has Christ's Spirit, he is CHRIST'S he is a Christian! He has been begotten as a child of God.

But does that mean his salvation is complete? Is he now fully and finally saved? Is that all there is to it? Is he now suddenly perfect? Is it now impossible for him to do WRONG?

NO! FAR FROM IT! But WHY? What's the answer? Why do so many misunderstand?

Here is the PLAIN TRUTH you need to know.

First, there are TWO conditions to becoming a Christian: REPENTANCE, and FAITH. These two we, ourselves, must perform. Yet no one can, of himself, say, Oh now I see I must repent. All right, I hereby repent. One does not just decide casually, as a matter of routine, to repent. WHY?

Jesus Christ said that none can come to him, except the Spirit of the Father draw him. God grants repentance. God calls one, and convicts the mind and conscience by his Spirit, working on the mind externally. Usually a real struggle goes on within. The person has been shaken to know he has done wrong he has sinned. He is not only sorry he abhors himself! He is brought to real REPENTANCE not only for what he has done, but for what he now sees that he is.

Yet he, himself, must make the decision. If he does repent, surrender to God and in FAITH accept Jesus Christ as personal Savior, then, upon performance of these TWO conditions, God promises to put within him the GIFT of the Holy Spirit. This is the very life of GOD SPIRIT life. It imparts to him the very divine nature!

Then what, at that stage, has happened?

This new convert has only been begotten of God not yet BORN. He has not received the full measure of God's Spirit Christ had he is only a spiritual babe in Christ he must now GROW spiritually, just as a newly conceived fetus in its mother's womb must grow physically large enough to be BORN as a human.

This new convert has now REPENTED, in his mind, from the depths of his heart. HE MEANS IT, too! In all sincerity, in his mind and heart he has turned around to go the other way to live a different life. He is now a CHRISTIAN he has received God's Holy Spirit. He really wants to do what is right to obey God to live GOD'S WAY.

YET HE FINDS HE DOES NOT DO THIS PERFECTLY! Many, at this stage, become discouraged. Some give up even trying to live a Christian life. And WHY? Because of the false notion that a Christian is one who becomes PERFECT at one fell swoop or that one cannot become a Christian until he has broken all wrong habits, and made himself righteous.

It's vital to UNDERSTAND how true Christianity REALLY WORKS! The newly begotten Christian must grow up, spiritually. What would you think of a human baby, who became 6 feet tall all at once. without growing up? The growing up process requires TIME. There is an instant when a person receives the impregnating Holy Spirit of God when he first becomes a Christian. But he is only a spiritual infant. He must grow up spiritually.

The newly converted person, in his mind and heart, sincerely has ABOUT-FACED! He has actually gained contact with GOD and received God's Holy Spirit. God's own divine NATURE has now been conceived within him. BUT THAT'S ALL. It is merely conceived not yet full grown! And his HUMAN NATURE is still there. It has not been killed or removed!

God's PURPOSE in having created humanity in having caused YOU to be born is to reproduce himself. And GOD, above all things, is PERFECT, RIGHTEOUS CHARACTER God is able to create character within us but it must be done as a result of our independent free choice. We, as individual separate entities; have our part in the process.

What is perfect character? It is the ability, in a separate entity, to come to the KNOWLEDGE of the right from the wrong the true from the false and to CHOOSE the right, and possess the WILL to enforce self-discipline to DO the right and resist the wrong.

God's CHARACTER travels in the direction of his law the way of LOVE. It is an outgoing CONCERN for others. GOD has that character! He has an outgoing concern for you and for me. He GAVE his only begotten Son to reconcile us to him, and make the JOYS of his character and everlasting life possible for us. He showers on us every good and precious gift. He even puts within us his DIVINE NATURE when we repent and turn from the WRONG way of THIS WORLD, begin to resist it and turn TO him through faith in Jesus Christ as personal Savior!

God's divine nature is the nature of love of giving, serving, helping of outgoing concern. It is the nature of humility.

Now when one is converted has repented, and turned from Satan's and this world's false WAY and has at once received God's Holy Spirit his HUMAN nature, as I said before, does not flee. It, too, remains. It still exerts a pull. We still live in THIS PRESENT EVIL WORLD, and it exerts a pull. God still allows Satan to be around and HE exerts a pull.

So we now have THREE PULLS to RESIST to OVERCOME! We must now overcome these three Satan, this world and our own SELVES. We have to battle against these three, in order to develop and strengthen RIGHT CHARACTER within US. God says plainly it is THE OVERCOMERS who shall be saved who shall REIGN with Christ!

No human being is strong enough to do this BY HIMSELF! He must seek, and IN FAITH receive, the help and power of GOD. Even with God's power he will not overcome such forces easily, or all at once. IT is NOT EASY! Christ plainly said the way to ultimate salvation is hard, difficult. It's a constant BATTLE a struggle against self, the world and the devil. The creation of CHARACTER comes through EXPERIENCE it takes TIME!

THIS development is a PROCESS. It is a matter of GROWTH DEVELOPMENT. It requires, to become PERFECT, full and right KNOWLEDGE of the very Word of God because Jesus taught that we must live by EVERY WORD OF GOD.

The natural, unconverted mind cannot fully and rightly UNDERSTAND the Scriptures of God. The acquisition of this KNOWLEDGE, in itself, is a procedure requiring TIME. It is the DOERS of this Word, not hearers only, who shall be saved.

But can any man DO, immediately and all at once, this new WAY he now learns about? Can any man, all at once, break all HABITS he now sees are wrong? No, he finds he has a FIGHT against acquired former habits.

He still has this PULL of human nature to overcome. This nature is A LAW working within him. The apostle Paul calls it the law of sin and death.

Paul was converted. Paul was a real Christian. He had repented, accepted Christ and received the Holy Spirit. With his MIND, he wanted with all his heart, and in real intense sincerity, to DO God's WAY! But did Paul DO it perfectly?

Let him tell. LISTEN!

For we know that the law is spiritual, he wrote, but I am carnal, sold under sin. For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I... Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. He is speaking of human nature within him. He continues, ... for to WILL is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. . . . O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? (Rom. 7:14-15, 18-19, 24.) Then he thanks God that GOD WILL through Jesus Christ, and by the power of his HOLY SPIRIT. BUT IT TAKES TIME!

The truly converted Christian will find that he often stumbles, under temptation, and falls down-even as a physical child, learning to walk, often falls down. But the year-old child does not get discouraged and give up. He gets up and starts out again.

THE TRULY CONVERTED CHRISTIAN IS NOT YET PERFECT!

God LOOKS ON THE HEART the inner MOTIVE the real intent! If someone is trying if he or she gets up whenever he or she falls down, and in repentance asks God's forgiveness, and sets out to do the very best NOT TO MAKE THAT MISTAKE AGAIN and to per-severe with renewed effort to OVERCOME, God is rich in mercy toward that person in his or her striving to overcome.

Speaking to CONVERTED CHRISTIANS, John writes, . . .these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin ... (even though he ought not) .. .we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: and he is the propitiation for OUR sins ... (I John 2:1-2). Yes, for the SINS of converted CHRISTIANS. Such people often are under heavier temptation than before conversion. They are STRIVING against sin STRIVING to overcome. But they are not yet perfect. Sometimes they are caught off guard. They may actually sin. Then they WAKE UP, as it were, and realize what they have done. They REPENT. They are filled with remorse truly sorry disgusted with themselves. They go to GOD, and CRY OUT for HELP for more power and strength from God to OVERCOME!

This is the WAY of the Christian!

It is the way of a constant BATTLE a striving against SIN a seeking God in earnest prayer for help and spiritual POWER to overcome. They are constantly GAINING GROUND. They are constantly GROWING in God's KNOWLEDGE, from the BIBLE.

They are constantly rooting out wrong habits, driving themselves into RIGHT habits. They are constantly growing closer to GOD through Bible study and prayer. They are constantly growing in CHARACTER, toward perfection, even though not yet perfect.

With Paul, they say, Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I FOLLOW AFTER. ... Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, FORGETTING those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I PRESS TOWARD THE MARK FOR THE PRIZE OF THE HIGH CALLING OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS! (Phil. 3:12-14.)

But, someone may ask, what if one's life is cut off, and he dies before he has attained this perfection? Is he saved, or lost? The answer is that we shall never obtain absolute perfection in this life.

I said, earlier, that a person who is converted does receive the Holy Spirit at a definite time all at once! Not the full measure Christ had he is not at once full grown spiritually only a spiritual babe in Christ. Yet he is then a changed, converted man changed in mind, in attitude, in the direction he has set himself to strive to travel. Even though he has not yet reached perfection even though he may have stumbled under temptation and taken a spiritual fall as long as, in his mind and heart, he is earnestly striving to travel GOD'S WAY, to overcome and grow spiritually as long as God's Spirit is in him as long as he is being LED by the Spirit of God, he is a begotten SON of God.

If, anywhere along this life's journey, that life is cut short, such a man will be resurrected. It is only the foolish one who deliberately QUITS and GIVES UP who REJECTS God, and God's WAY, and rejects Christ as his Savior-who turns, FROM this direction of GOD'S WAY in his mind and heart in his inner INTENT who deliberately and intentionally in his mind TURNS FROM Christ, who is lost. If; once having been converted, having received God's Spirit, and TASTED of the joys of GOD'S WAY, one deliberately rejects that way, makes the DECISION, not under stress of temptation, but deliberately and finally, NOT to go God's way, then God says it is IMPOSSIBLE to renew such a one to repentance. He would have to REPENT of that decision. But if he WILLFULLY made it, not in a time of temptation, but calmly, deliberately, willfully, then he just WILL NOT ever repent of it.

But anyone who FEARS he may have committed the unpardonable sin is perhaps worried about it and HOPES he has not committed it and still WANTS to have God's salvation no such has committed it. Such a person MAY repent and go right on to salvation IF HE WANTS TO!

If YOU have stumbled and fallen down,, DON'T BE DISCOURAGED! Get up and press on ahead! If you see a Christian do something wrong, DON'T SIT IN JUDGMENT AND CONDEMN that's God's business to judge, not yours! Let's have compassion and mercy WE don't know the inner heart of others only GOD does!
