Salvation comes in three tenses


We are a three-part being consisting of a spirit, a soul, and a body.


Genesis 2:7
 ~And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground [BODY], and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life [SPIRIT]; and man became a living SOUL.

All aspects of a man need to be saved/delivered

1 Thessalonians 5:23
~And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The SOUL from the Penalty of sin;
The SPIRIT from the Power of sin; and
The BODY from the Presence of sin.

2 Corinthians 1:10
~[Christ] Who delivered us [our SOUL] from so great a death, and doth deliver [our SPIRIT, i.e., thinking with transformed, renewed mind]: in whom we trust that he will YET deliver us [our BODY];

For more understanding on the three aspects of salvation, consider this ~3-minute teaching by bro Ron Knight.

God's own commentary


Words matter, and every word in God’s word of truth (as found only in the King James Bible for English-speaking people) says what God means, and means what God says! 

Matthew 4:4
But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by EVERY WORD that PROCEEDETH OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.

2 Timothy 3:16-17
ALL SCRIPTURE IS GIVEN BY INSPIRATION OF GOD, and is profitable...That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furniches unto all good works.

And to make sure we can gain edification and understanding of it, the Holy Ghost will teach us, and the Lord has promised to give the understanding.  Yea, let God be true…

1 Corinthians 2:13
Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which THE HOLY GHOST  TEACHETH; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

2 Timothy 2:7
 Consider what I say; and THE LORD GIVE THEE UNDERSTANDING IN ALL THINGS.
  
With that in mind, consider the understanding Pastor Ron Knight shares in these two studies on the way the Holy Spirit differentiates the use of these terms: 
Spirit of God
Spirit of the Lord
The Holy Ghost
The Spirit of Christ


The Spirit of God, the Spirit of the Lord, and the Holy Ghost



The Spirit of Christ

A Personal note from Bro Ron…


UPDATE AUGUST 2017
Many thanks to all those who have submitted questions to us to share/answer on our Sunday FaceBook live Q&As.*  We truly appreciate you and praise the Lord for you! Keep 'em coming:-)!

Also, for all those who are asking about our Southern California trip, thanks for your patience. We are narrowing down a place/date/time (most likely Sunday, September 10th). We will keep you posted. The plan is to have a live teaching session and Q&A. And yes, our plan is to broadcast it live, and record it and post it for all those outside of SoCal to watch as well. So, if you live in SoCal, make your plans (and let others know). We look forward to seeing you all soon!!

Romans 1:9-12
For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers; Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you.  For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established; That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.


Grace and peace. 
Bro. Ron Knight

*All Sunday FaceBook Live Q&As are uploaded to the Norcalgrace YouTube channel , as well.

Don't Cater to the Lost





The lost need the Lord, not coffee bars, donuts, rock concerts, and the such to entice them in the doors, and to entertain them in order to keep them.  They need a clear presentation of the gospel by which they can be saved: Paul's gospel (Romans 2:16; 3:20-26 KJB)!

~Whom we PREACH, WARNING every man, and TEACHING every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:   [Colossians 1:28 KJB]

'Filthy' defined

When we know what the words in the King James Bible mean ACCORDING AS GOD HAS DEFINED THEM, that is when we can understand what God actually means to convey for our understanding and edification.   Confusion occurs when we apply man's definitions, particularly according to the contemporary and cultural definitions of men who do not rightly divide.

We know from scripture that it is the Holy Ghost, Himself, that teaches the diligent student of the word by comparing the verses.  

~ Which things also we speak, NOT IN THE WORDS which man's wisdom teacheth, but [the words of scripture] which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.  [1 Corinthians 2:13 KJB]

Does Speaking in Tongues Have a Place Today?

Is the gift of tongues still operational in this, the dispensation of the grace of God?  There is much confusion as certain religious denominations say yes.  However, we are exhorted by Scripture to not hold what man says above that which is written (1 Corinthians 4:6; Psalms 118:8, 9; Romans 3:4)

In this Q&A, Bro Ron Knight brings clarity and understanding of what the written word of truth, rightly divided, has to say, thus dispelling the confusion.

Are you struggling with sin?

Do you need a word of encouragement?  

Take heart!  God is a God of process...and patience...as you seek to grow in your sanctification.
