30 Questions in 10 minutes

1. How do I know if I will go to heaven after my physical body dies?
  • If you're born again [baptized with water & Holy Spirit]
  • If you love God with all your heart, mind, strength and soul
  • If love your neighbor as yourself
  • Because the word of God says that you will, since you are born again and are walking in love  
2. How do I know if I have been baptized with the Holy Spirit's [fire]?
  • You will speak in tongues when the Spirit give you the utterance. These tongues are not the same as the gift of tongues. These tongues require the Holy Spirit to give you the utterance.
  • Some people will feel it (e.g. being electrocuted, Holy fire, and the like)
  • You will be able to resist temptation. Without the Baptism of the Holy Spirit fire, you will not be able to overcome sin, it will rule over you because you wouldn't have a new heart needed to speak with God.
  • Please note: the baptism I am speaking about are both spiritual. Do not let anyone burn your physical body with fire to baptize you.

3. What sin sin? How do we repent?
What is sin?
  • Disobedience to the truth, which is the word of God and the Holy Spirit. We gradually grow into obedience to the truth. Thus, we are accountable for doing the better that we know how to do. As we continue to grow spiritually, and get familiar with the word and the Holy Spirit, he will reveal to us through the word, circumstances, sermons, and born-again believers what we need to change [Read James 4].
In order to be obedient to the truth we have to know what it is; this means we have to read the word of God, and get to know the Holy Spirit.

How do we repent from sin?
  • All repentance starts with a change of heart. What this means is that we have to decide in our heart that we never want to do that sin again. This doesn't mean that we have to know how to change from it. After we decide in our heart that we never want to do that sin again, we have to ask God for forgiveness. BTW, just because we decide in our heart that we never want to commit that sin again, doesn't mean that we will not commit the sin after our decision. However, what it does mean is that we following the lead of the Holy Spirit to eliminate the sin all together. Lastly, we have to ask the Holy Spirit for help to stay true to the repentance.
What happens after we repent from sin?
  • Jesus Christ will never remember the sin that we've repented from anymore according to Hebrews 8:12. God never discipline us due to repentant sin, we must believe that in our heart. We should not allow the devil to make us feel guilty or ashamed. Just because we have repentant to God for a sin, doesn't mean it eliminates us from repenting to anyone impacted by our sin. We are still accountable for asking others for forgiveness when we've done wrong.

    19. How do I know if I received the Holy Spirit or an evil spirit when I was born-again?

    25. Can I be born again and sin?
    • You can. However, you should not because if you truly believed the word of God, you'll believe that you've been set free from sin and it's power.
