John 3:16-17

King James Version

16 For God so loved the world, 

that he gave his only begotten Son, 

that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, 

but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world 

to condemn the world; 

but that the world through him 

might be saved.

What does it take, to believe in JESUS?

What does belief do?

What happens when you don't believe?

SPIRIT led me to Scripture for the answers:

Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.

Mark 16:9-11

King James Version

9 Now when Jesus was risen early 

the first day of the week, 

he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, 

out of whom he had cast seven devils.

10 And she went and told them that had been with him, 

as they mourned and wept.

11 And they, 

when they had heard that he was alive, 

and had been seen of her, 

believed not.

Mark 16:12-13

King James Version

12 After that he appeared in another form 

unto two of them, as they walked, 

and went into the country.

13 And they went and told it unto the residue: 

neither believed they them.

Mark 16:14

King James Version

14 Afterward he appeared unto the eleven 

as they sat at meat, 

and upbraided them with their unbelief 

and hardness of heart, 

because they believed not them which had seen him 

after he was risen.

Mark 16:15-16

King James Version

15 And he said unto them, 

Go ye into all the world, 

and preach the gospel to every creature.

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; 

but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Mark 16:17-18

King James Version

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; 

In my name shall they cast out devils; 

they shall speak with new tongues;

18 They shall take up serpents; 

and if they drink any deadly thing, 

it shall not hurt them; 

they shall lay hands on the sick, 

and they shall recover.

John 3:16-17

King James Version

16 For God so loved the world, 

that he gave his only begotten Son, 

that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, 

but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world 

to condemn the world; 

but that the world through him 

might be saved.

John 3:18

King James Version

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: 

but he that believeth not is condemned already, 

because he hath not believed in the name 

of the only begotten Son of God.

John 6:35-36

King James Version

35 And Jesus said unto them, 

I am the bread of life: 

he that cometh to me shall never hunger; 

and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

36 But I said unto you, 

That ye also have seen me, 

and believe not.

John 6:40

King James Version

40 And this is the will of him that sent me, 

that every one which seeth the Son, 

and believeth on him, 

may have everlasting life: 

and I will raise him up at the last day.

John 7:38-39

King James Version

38 He that believeth on me, 

as the scripture hath said, 

out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, 

which they that believe on him should receive: 

for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; 

because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

John 8:24

King James Version

24 I said therefore unto you, 

that ye shall die in your sins: 

for if ye believe not that I am he, 

ye shall die in your sins.

John 11:25-27

King James Version

25 Jesus said unto her, 

I am the resurrection, 

and the life: 

he that believeth in me, 

though he were dead, 

yet shall he live:

26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me 

shall never die. 

Believest thou this?

27 She saith unto him, 

Yea, Lord: 

I believe that thou art the Christ, 

the Son of God, 

which should come into the world.

John 14:1

King James Version

14 Let not your heart be troubled: 

ye believe in God, believe also in me.

John 14:6

King James Version

6 Jesus saith unto him, 

I am the way, the truth, and the life: 

no man cometh unto the Father, 

but by me.

John 14:7

King James Version

7 If ye had known me, 

ye should have known my Father also: 

and from henceforth ye know him, 

and have seen him.

John 14:8-9

King James Version

8 Philip saith unto him, 

Lord, show us the Father, 

and it sufficeth us.

9 Jesus saith unto him, 

Have I been so long time with you, 

and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? 

he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; 

and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?

John 14:10-11

King James Version

10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, 

and the Father in me? 

the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: 

but the Father that dwelleth in me, 

he doeth the works.

11 Believe me that I am in the Father, 

and the Father in me: 

or else believe me for the very works' sake.

John 14:12

King James Version

12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, 

He that believeth on me, 

the works that I do shall he do also; 

and greater works than these shall he do; 

because I go unto my Father.

John 14:13-14

King James Version

13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, 

that will I do, 

that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, 

I will do it.

Acts 16:31

King James Version

31 And they said, 

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, 

and thou shalt be saved, 

and thy house.

Romans 10:4

King James Version

4 For Christ is the end of the law 

for righteousness 

to every one that believeth.

Romans 10:9-10

King James Version

9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth 

the Lord Jesus, 

and shalt believe in thine heart 

that God hath raised him from the dead, 

thou shalt be saved.

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; 

and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Romans 10:11-12

King James Version

11 For the scripture saith, 

Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

12 For there is no difference 

between the Jew and the Greek: 

for the same Lord over all is rich unto all 

that call upon him.

Romans 10:13

King James Version

13 For whosoever shall call 

upon the name of the Lord 

shall be saved.

Romans 10:14-15

King James Version

14 How then shall they call on him 

in whom they have not believed? 

and how shall they believe in him 

of whom they have not heard? 

and how shall they hear without a preacher?

15 And how shall they preach, 

except they be sent? 

as it is written, 

How beautiful are the feet of them 

that preach the gospel of peace, 

and bring glad tidings of good things!

Romans 10:16-17

King James Version

16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. 

For Esaias saith, 

Lord, who hath believed our report?

17 So then faith cometh by hearing, 

and hearing by the word of God.

Ephesians 1:13-14

King James Version

13 In whom ye also trusted, 

after that ye heard the word of truth, 

the gospel of your salvation: 

in whom also after that ye believed, 

ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance 

until the redemption of the purchased possession, 

unto the praise of his glory.

Ephesians 1:19-23

King James Version

19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power 

to us-ward who believe, 

according to the working of his mighty power,

20 Which he wrought in Christ, 

when he raised him from the dead, 

and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

21 Far above all principality, and power,

 and might, and dominion, 

and every name that is named, 

not only in this world, 

but also in that which is to come:

22 And hath put all things under his feet, 

and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,

23 Which is his body, 

the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

1 John 5:1

King James Version

5 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ 

is born of God: 

and every one that loveth him that begat 

loveth him also that is begotten of him.

1 John 5:4

King James Version

4 For whatsoever is born of 

God overcometh the world: 

and this is the victory that overcometh the world, 

even our faith.

1 John 5:5

King James Version

5 Who is he that overcometh the world, 

but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

1 John 5:6-9

King James Version

6 This is he that came by water and blood, 

even Jesus Christ; 

not by water only, but by water and blood. 

And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, 

because the Spirit is truth.

7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, 

the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: 

and these three are one.

8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, 

the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: 

and these three agree in one.

9 If we receive the witness of men, 

the witness of God is greater: 

for this is the witness of God 

which he hath testified of his Son.

1 John 5:10

King James Version

10 He that believeth on the Son of God 

hath the witness in himself: 

he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; 

because he believeth not the record 

that God gave of his Son.

1 John 5:11

King James Version

11 And this is the record, 

that God hath given to us eternal life, 

and this life is in his Son.

1 John 5:12-13

King James Version

12 He that hath the Son hath life; 

and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

13 These things have I written unto you that believe 

on the name of the Son of God; 

that ye may know that ye have eternal life, 

and that ye may believe on the name 

of the Son of God.

1 John 5:14-15

King James Version

14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, 

that, if we ask any thing according to his will, 

he heareth us:

15 And if we know that he hear us, 

whatsoever we ask, 

we know that we have the petitions 

that we desired of him.

1 John 5:19

King James Version

19 And we know that we are of God, 

and the whole world lieth in wickedness.

1 John 5:20

King James Version

20 And we know that the Son of God is come, 

and hath given us an understanding, 

that we may know him that is true, 

and we are in him that is true, 

even in his Son Jesus Christ. 

This is the true God, 

and eternal life.

Let the LORD JESUS have the last WORD.

For those who believe:

John 15:26

King James Version

26 But when the Comforter is come, 

whom I will send unto you from the Father, 

even the Spirit of truth, 

which proceedeth from the Father, 

he shall testify of me:

For those who don't believe:

John 8:44-45

King James Version

44 Ye are of your father the devil, 

and the lusts of your father ye will do. 

He was a murderer from the beginning, 

and abode not in the truth, 

because there is no truth in him. 

When he speaketh a lie, 

he speaketh of his own: 

for he is a liar, 

and the father of it.

45 And because I tell you the truth, 

ye believe me not.

What I unearthed


1 Corinthians 12:31

King James Version

31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: 

and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

What have I found, as I "unearthed" self?

What have I found, as I searched for the "core" of my being?

What have I found, as I searched for ABSOLUTE truth?

All these, I aspired to on 24 November 2018.

That's 51 months ago.

GOD made me born again 41 months ago.

And the 10 months in between?

Ah, that's where the waiting happened.

Why this proclivity for numbers?

So I can keep track.

And I think GOD likes that.

That we pay attention.

Ideally, to EVERYTHING.

What we think, say, and do.

What others think, say, and do.

Looking for patterns.

Looking for an order to it all.

Only finding out, as born again, that what GOD thinks, says, and does, is all that matters.

In 2018, I merely searched for the "core" of my being.

What was I made of?

What was I good at?

What did GOD create me for?

What work was I cut out for?

What was absolute truth?

I was like a very hungry kitten.

Wanting to devour all milk on sight.

Again, GOD likes that.

He likes the hungry heart.

He knows it's not just cerebral.

He knows my heart's waking up.

He knows my mind will make sense of it all.

And organize it into some order, that I may share with you.

He knew all that.

He knew what I'm all about.

He knew what I was up to.

He let me be.

So I may find my way about.

I listened to my soul, every single moment.

Through dreams, work, people, clues, prompts.

I just didn't know it will take another five months to cement my resolve:

To sin no more.

With that resolve "cemented", GOD finally "showed up" on 6 September 2019.

He made me born again.

My life has gone forward, spiritually, since.

There was no more talk about money, debt, income.

All I cared about was getting to the CORE of GOD's TRUTH.

That's how it progressed.

From self, to GOD.

Everything became for His purpose.

1 Timothy 2:4

King James Version

4 Who will have all men to be saved, 

and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

Based on His timing.

2 Peter 3:8

King James Version

8 But, beloved, 

be not ignorant of this one thing, 

that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, 

and a thousand years as one day.

ALL for His Son, JESUS.

Colossians 1:16-20

King James Version

16 For by him were all things created, 

that are in heaven, and that are in earth, 

visible and invisible, 

whether they be thrones, or dominions, 

or principalities, or powers: 

all things were created by him, 

and for him:

17 And he is before all things, 

and by him all things consist.

18 And he is the head of the body, the church: 

who is the beginning, 

the firstborn from the dead; 

that in all things he might have the preeminence.

19 For it pleased the Father 

that in him should all fulness dwell;

20 And, 

having made peace through the blood of his cross, 

by him to reconcile all things unto himself; 

by him, I say, 

whether they be things in earth, 

or things in heaven.

The world whittled away in comparison.

JESUS was all that mattered.

Without Him, we can do nothing.

John 15:5

King James Version

5 I am the vine, 

ye are the branches: 

He that abideth in me,

 and I in him, 

the same bringeth forth much fruit:

 for without me ye can do nothing.

When you know all these, as born again, how can we ever stray from the LORD?

Hebrews 10:26

King James Version

26 For if we sin wilfully after 

that we have received the knowledge of the truth, 

there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

Scripture's got everything covered.

It was the book I only need learn from.

For the blood of JESUS covers His faithful.

1 John 1:7

King James Version

7 But if we walk in the light, 

as he is in the light, 

we have fellowship one with another, 

and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son 

cleanseth us from all sin.

And JESUS is the WORD of GOD.

Revelation 19:11-13

King James Version

11 And I saw heaven opened, 

and behold a white horse; 

and he that sat upon him 

was called Faithful and True, 

and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, 

and on his head were many crowns; 

and he had a name written, 

that no man knew, but he himself.

13 And he was clothed with a vesture 

dipped in blood: 

and his name is called The Word of God.

It's all these wonderful clues, and connections, that please my soul.

Enjoying every moment with GOD.

Being instructed by His SPIRIT.

Being heard by JESUS.

Being given an answer.

Sharing with you my findings.

I pray to JESUS, whenever I have a question.

Or when I seek clarity about a verse.

It all becomes so easy when you have SPIRIT in you.

It's a gift from heaven that I shall always be grateful for.

Thanks to the LORD JESUS.

He prayed to the Father, that we may receive the gift.

John 14:16-17

King James Version

16 And I will pray the Father, 

and he shall give you another Comforter,

that he may abide with you for ever;

17 Even the Spirit of truth; 

whom the world cannot receive, 

because it seeth him not, 

neither knoweth him: 

but ye know him; 

for he dwelleth with you, 

and shall be in you.

Surely, GOD took pity on this persistent soul.

All those decades of searching.

Scouring all other books, but His Bible.

He knew I'd come around.

And when I did, He also knew I'd be forever His.

It was all predestined.

Ephesians 1:5

King James Version

5 Having predestinated us 

unto the adoption of children 

by Jesus Christ to himself, 

according to the good pleasure of his will,

I finally found ultimate truth.


Everything I've unearthed so far, you'll find here:

GOD's GLORY blogs

GOD's GLORY articles

BORN AGAIN classics

I say "so far", for the Bible is rich with GOD's truth.

So much so, that apostle John declared this:

John 21:25

King James Version

25 And there are also many other things 

which Jesus did, 

the which, if they should be written every one, 

I suppose that even the world itself 

could not contain the books that should be written. 


Thank you for making time here.

The process may be long.

The process may be short.

Searching for self, is searching for the GOD within.

Even if you don't know that, in the beginning.

I didn't.

All I did, was take it a step at a time.

A day at a time.

Searching, praying, waiting, listening, watching.

Until GOD made me born again in 2019.

Then all things became clear.

That's pretty much the "archaeological" process for me.

It's all so worth it.

This trying to find truth.

Whether it's personal truth.

Or the world's truth.

It's a process.

A journey.

An adventure.

Go through the process GOD allotted for you.

And the learning will stick.

It's always GOD's WILL anyway.

That was a lesson shown by JESUS Himself.

John 6:38

King James Version

38 For I came down from heaven, 

not to do mine own will, 

but the will of him that sent me.

Shown the day He prayed to GOD.

The very same day He was betrayed.

And yet, all He thought about was GOD.

And us.

John 17:5-9

King James Version

5 And now, O Father, 

glorify thou me with thine own self 

with the glory which I had with thee 

before the world was.

6 I have manifested thy name unto the men 

which thou gavest me out of the world: 

thine they were, 

and thou gavest them me; 

and they have kept thy word.

7 Now they have known that all things 

whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.

8 For I have given unto them 

the words which thou gavest me; 

and they have received them, 

and have known surely that I came out from thee, 

and they have believed that thou didst send me.

9 I pray for them: 

I pray not for the world, 

but for them which thou hast given me; 

for they are thine.

SPIRIT in us


Job 33:4

King James Version

4 The spirit of God hath made me, 

and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.

When the SPIRIT of GOD is in you, you will be a changed person.

You will want to know the Bible.

You will want to be born again.

You will want to know everything about JESUS.

You will want to know everything about GOD.

You will want to know GOD's truth.

You will want to obey GOD's will.

You will not want to sin anymore.

There is delight in obeying GOD's laws.

There is a desire to know how JESUS loved.

There is a looking forward to serving GOD each day.

There is gratitude for what SPIRIT teaches each moment.

There is awe at the power and magnificence of GOD.

There is understanding of the ways of the world.

There is the intention to share the gospel.

You will become a new person in CHRIST.

Ezekiel 11:19-20

King James Version

19 And I will give them one heart, 

and I will put a new spirit within you; 

and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, 

and will give them an heart of flesh:

20 That they may walk in my statutes, 

and keep mine ordinances, 

and do them: 

and they shall be my people, 

and I will be their God.

Romans 6:6

King James Version

6 Knowing this, 

that our old man is crucified with him, 

that the body of sin might be destroyed, 

that henceforth we should not serve sin.

Romans 13:14

King James Version

14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, 

and make not provision for the flesh, 

to fulfil the lusts thereof.

2 Corinthians 3:18

King James Version

18 But we all, 

with open face beholding as in a glass 

the glory of the Lord, 

are changed into the same image from glory to glory, 

even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

2 Corinthians 4:16

King James Version

16 For which cause we faint not; 

but though our outward man perish, 

yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

2 Corinthians 5:17

King James Version

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, 

he is a new creature: 

old things are passed away; 


all things are become new.

Galatians 5:16

King James Version

16 This I say then, 

Walk in the Spirit, 

and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

Galatians 5:22-26

King James Version

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, 

joy, peace, longsuffering, 

gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: 

against such there is no law.

24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh 

with the affections and lusts.

25 If we live in the Spirit, 

let us also walk in the Spirit.

26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, 

provoking one another, 

envying one another.

Ephesians 2:13-16

King James Version

13 But now in Christ Jesus 

ye who sometimes were far off 

are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

14 For he is our peace, 

who hath made both one, 

and hath broken down 

the middle wall of partition between us;

15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, 

even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; 

for to make in himself of twain one new man, 

so making peace;

16 And that he might reconcile both unto God 

in one body by the cross, 

having slain the enmity thereby:

Ephesians 4:24

King James Version

24 And that ye put on the new man, 

which after God is created in righteousness 

and true holiness.

Colossians 1:11

King James Version

11 Strengthened with all might, 

according to his glorious power, 

unto all patience and longsuffering 

with joyfulness;

Colossians 3:10

King James Version

10 And have put on the new man, 

which is renewed in knowledge 

after the image of him that created him:

1 John 3:9

King James Version

9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; 

for his seed remaineth in him: 

and he cannot sin, 

because he is born of God.

1 John 3:24

King James Version

24 And he that keepeth his commandments 

dwelleth in him, and he in him. 

And hereby we know that he abideth in us, 

by the Spirit which he hath given us.

A born again is naturally drawn to Scripture.

That's how he comes to know GOD's laws.

Once he knows, he shall never turn to his old ways again.

Hebrews 10:26

King James Version

26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received 

the knowledge of the truth, 

there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

Only because there is now a deep awareness, and gratitude, at being saved from sin.

How can anyone turn back to the old ways after that?

Especially after you have tasted GOD's mercy.
