THE NEW BIRTH OF A LOST SOUL IS THE MANIFEST WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. Without the presence and supernatural action of the Spirit no one can be saved. The Son of God made this absolutely clear in St. John’s Gospel. “Ye must be born again” were the beautiful words of Jesus Christ to Nicodemus. Look at the clear words about the Holy Ghost that Jesus used. “Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.” (St. John 3:5-8) We must be “born of the Spirit” or we are eternally lost.

It’s amazing to hear the great portion of evangelical churches denying the supernatural work of the Holy Ghost. The New Testament Church knew how totally dependent on the Holy Ghost they were. One of the noted men of great reputation, “Irenaeus, stated, “We speak wisdom among them that are perfect, terming those persons ‘perfect’ who have received the Spirit of God, and who through the Spirit speak all kinds of languages, and bring to light for the general benefit the hidden things of men, and declare the mysteries of God.” (Irenaeus (A.D. 130-202), Against Heresies, Book V, Chapter 6, Section 1.) How can we expect supernatural results without supernatural powers from God?

If anyone gets truly saved in one of these churches, they certainly would no longer be at home in that place. The New Birth is the greatest supernatural work in the Universe. For a sinner, born in sin and governed by their Adamic nature to become a ‘New Born Child of God’ is a powerful action. The sin nature must be dealt a death blow. The individual must be added to the Lamb’s Book of Life and placed in the Body of Christ. All of their sins have to be cleansed from the soul and spirit and a new nature manifest in place of the old. Joy and a new deep felt peace is flooded over this life and the purity of Jesus Christ is imputed. Such a new born person will be as pure as the blood of Christ is capable of cleansing, which is as a new born baby.

Now if you think this is just walking down a church aisle and saying, “I believe in Jesus,” you are being fooled. If there is no “Radical New Birth” all this sinner will be is a sinning church member. This is why we have a multitude of people saying, “I’m a saved sinner.” That is impossible and these dear souls are being deceived and will be lost unless somebody can get the truth to them. Apostle Paul said it better than I when he said it by the Holy Ghost. I warn you not to argue with the Holy Ghost. Here is what the Spirit said. “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: 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. For he that is dead is freed from sin.” (Romans 6:1-7) Argue with this and you will answer down the road.

This same Holy Ghost anointed Book shows us how imperative the work of His supernatural powers are in our salvation. The Holy Spirit is the power of Christ’s redemption and He alone makes us victorious saints of God. “That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.” (Romans 8:4-9) I love those words, “To be spiritually minded,” or to be anointed in our life by the Holy Ghost. This is life and peace in a supernatural manner.

The Bible called this great work being “sealed with the Holy Ghost.” Even as He promises us the sealing of the Holy Ghost, He also warned us that we must not grieve this third member to the Godhead that does the “sealing.” “And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.” (Ephesians 4:30) This awesome person we call the Holy Ghost can be wounded by our stubbornness and carnality. You can drive Him away and He will remove your name from the Book of Life.

The Son of God gave two great warnings in His seven letters to the Church. “Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.” (Revelation 2:5) Again He said, “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth. (Revelation 3: 15-16) Eternal Security is God’s promise to every soul that will protect the seal of the Holy Ghost upon your heart. Our Father will never make you serve Him against your will. If you want to stubbornly live in your sins and disobedience, He will not break your will for you. As one writer said, “My will is mine to make it Thine.” If your will has been given to Him you will find His perfect grace to keep you until that hour of our great hope. The Holy Ghost will keep all that are His.

  1. Whew, scared me there for a minute in the beginning. I am not a carnal Christian but, I do still think I am a sinner who is only saved by grace. I have no worldly desires yet, I still sin daily. It’s not deliberate but, unwanted. Such as times when my brain is on pause and my mouth is on fast forward. These, I have to ask for forgiveness every single day of my life. My husband talks much about the saints of G-d. I’m like, saint of G-d? Me? No way! He corrects me all the time and tells me this is the way the L-rd sees me. I just smile and say, The L-rd can see me any way He wants to but, as long as I’m in this body, I will never consider myself a saint.

    Great lesson, may the L-rd bless.

  2. Umm I think that you need to go either read 1 John 1:8- 1:10 or re-read those passages. It seems to me that you are saying that we are instantly perfected at the moment of salvation? You seem to be saying that we no longer are able to sin? Umm sorry but you couldn’t be more wrong. We are not to make sin an everyday part of our lives. We are not to wallow in it and play around with it for a long period of time. We sin we grieve over our sin and then hopefully we repent and move on. What you seem to be teaching can cause someone some real harm and you should not do that. Quite frankly if you don’t know what you are talking about then you really should just remain quite. Sorry if this sounds harsh but you can do some real damage and you should really go before the Lord and he’ll help you to understand.

  3. Hello Pastor Chambers,

    This is Brian Davis from Fort Worth, Texas. Our family really enjoyed listening to your radio broadcast this afternoon on the Holy Ghost and salvation! Praise The Lord for His awesome salvation plan! Would you send me a picture of that Lutheran church you were talking about today? I look forward to hearing back from you and I hope you have a blessed day.


  4. Hi Bro. Chambers!

    I’m so glad you are doing a series on the Holy Spirit! I was going to ask you to do just that.

    During your series, can you explain why the Gifts of the Holy Spirit are still for today and did not cease when the canon of Scripture was closed? I spoke to a cessationist on the phone a couple of months ago. I gave him my position and could not convince him that the Gifts of the Holy Spirit are still for today. He had convinced himself. He is influenced by John MacArthur. This person believes that if a person gives forth a prophecy or gives an interpretation of tongues, then this is adding to the closed canon of Scripture. I explained that I don’t believe in adding to or taking away from Scriptures. I told him that a prophecy or an interpretation of tongues has to be spoken within the parameters of the Scriptures (in line with the Scriptures). I explained to him that when the 12 Ephesian believers received the Holy Ghost baptism, they spoke in tongues and “prophesied”. However, the Scriptures do not record what they said, but still they prophesied by the Holy Ghost. Do you agree with my thoughts here? I hope to hear you address this next Saturday on the program.

    I love and appreciate you, Bro. Chambers! You remind me so much of my Pastor from the 80s and 90s. His name is Bro. Leon Morrow. He was an evangelist for over 25 years (1954 – 1979) in the Assemblies of God. You may have heard of him, possibly. He traveled with Evangelist David O. Nunn (Bible Revival Evangelistic Assn., Dallas, TX) for many years.

    God bless you richly!

  5. Dear Joseph Chambers,
    OH NO NO!!! Do not EVER “unsubscribe” me. I ALWAYS look forward to receiving your messages.. Some times I forward them to my son, who is a Pastor in Alabama.
    Joseph, please send me a mailing address one more time.. and I will send a MODEST (very) contribution (the widow’s mite) just to say how grateful I am to be a part of your ministry in this way..and how VERY much I appreciate your messages.
