How do you recognize if a person is a true Christian, or what is a Christian? “

Mat 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. 24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

TOO MANY HAVE A WRONG DEFINITION OF WHAT A REAL CHRISTIAN  IS.  AND THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A PARTIAL  CHRISTIAN WHO REJECTS THE ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
.
To be a Christian is based on the Greek word anointed one, Christos, a person in whom  we can see the anointing of the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ.. Jesus Christ himself also was baptized with the Holy Spirit, The word “Christ” is a transliteration of the Greek word christos, meaning “the Anointed One.
.
(Acts 10:38 KJV)  How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
 .
Now  the anointed one- Greek for Messiah (anointed one) is Christos, Christ in English. Thus, “Jesus Christ” joins a name and a title, and means Jesus the Messiah. Christ, Messiah, Anointed One. The title “Christ” or “Anointed One” Gk. Christos “Cristov” occurs about 350 times in the New Testament..
.
 The word christos means a person HOLY SPIRIT anointed . The Greek name for an individual “Christos” rendered “Christ” in Scripture, the basic of the term Christian now as well, comes from the Greek word “chrio” means to anoint with oil, the symbol of the Holy Spirit,
.
 Luke 4:18-19 (Wey) [Jesus:] “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to proclaim Good News to the poor; He has sent me to announce release to the prisoners of war and recovery of sight to the blind: to send away free those whom tyranny has crushed, to proclaim the year of acceptance with the Lord.”But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth. . . .
.
As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit–just as it has taught you, remain in him. 1 John 2:20, 27;
.
The word christos means a person so anointed and the word chrisma refers to that by which a person is anointed. John uses chrisma in these two verses, not speaking of the object being anointed but of the instrument of anointing. Additionally, we find a word christianos in Acts 11:26, which means “one belonging to the Anointed One,” just as Herodianos would mean “one who belongs to Herod.” As the ultimate Prophet, King and Priest, Jesus Christ was anointed when he began his earthly ministry. This anointing was predicted by Isaiah in Isaiah 61:1 when he said that the Spirit of the Lord would come upon the Messiah. In God’s time, when Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist, we are told the Holy Spirit came upon him when he came up out of the water. In other words, he was anointed by the Holy Spirit, and that without measure.
.
When Jesus quoted Isaiah 61:1,2 in the synagogue of Nazareth, saying, “The Spirit of the Lord is on me,” he was announcing to the people that he was the Messiah prophesied by Isaiah long ago and that the anointing of the Holy Spirit was now resting upon him.
.
Not only is Jesus Christ anointed, but the Bible tells us that every believer in Jesus Christ is also anointed. We are kings, priests, and prophets under the Priest, Prophet and King, the Lord Jesus Christ. We find references to this in many places. John the Baptist said there was another person coming after him, mightier than himself, who would baptize people in the Holy Spirit and fire.
.
 In Acts 1:5 the Lord Jesus Christ himself speaks of this, saying, “For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” This was fulfilled on the day of Pentecost, as we read in Acts 2:4: “All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.” The Greek word for anointing is chrisma, from which we have the word chrism. Chrisma appears several times in 1 John 2:20 and 27. It comes from the root word, chriô, which means to rub something or someone lightly with a substance like oil or lotion. Thus, when John writes in 1 John 2:20, “But you have a chrisma, an anointing,” he was referring to the coming of the Holy Spirit upon every believer.;
.
(1 John 3:21 KJV) I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: 2 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire. The word “Christ” is a transliteration of the Greek word christos, meaning “the Anointed One,    Jesus was the anointed one. Jesus is the Messiah and  the transliteration of the Old Testament Hebrew word pronounced maw-shakh, meaning Anointed One, which when translated into the New Testament Greek is Christos. Matt. 3:11, “As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”
.
and by the way these people who clearly hate, reject, abuse the Holy Spirit by offering their false definition of Christian   really do need to relook at the definition of a Christians, as they clearly are not Holy Spirit anointed  Christians even.. they are not real Christians..  So one can tell if any person is a Christian cause they also can see the evidence of the holy spirit’s anointing.. so now we all can be anointed one inspectors of all Christians now too.
.
So can we  see the anointing of the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ in you..

.

Fishers of men”…”believers”…”Christians”  These are  names that describe the  people who have been redeemed by Jesus and Baptized in the Holy Spirit, had committed themselves to live fully for Him

.

God who is love demonstrated it to the world in Christ Jesus John 3:16 but is experienced by the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. Now as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.

.

Jesus abided in the love of God, the holy spirit, so should we all

.

(John 14:21 KJV) He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. 23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. 24 He that loveth me not keepeth “not” my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which “sent me”.John 14:23-24 King James Version (KJV)

.

He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.John 12:48

.

Matt 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

.

ASK JESUS CHRIST THE BAPTIZER IN THE HOLY SPIRIT TO BAPTIZE YOU WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND FILL YOU WITH THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH IN JESUS NAME,

.

Eph. 2:10. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.
 .
We are not saved by the observance, or keeping of law, but we are saved and helped, equipped by the Holy Spirit to be obedient and to keep the law, which rather  is God’s Character! So now do be also continually filled with the Holy Spirit. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/09/19/the-false-demotion-of-the-holy-spirt-jesus-2/
.

We have now in Christendom have one faith, One Bible, one God, one Jesus Christ, one Church, One Holy Spirit, but we seem to have many different personal definitions of what a Christian is.. and why is that now? but in reality a Pentecostal Christian is the only valid, true definition of what a Christian is. Many persons believe in Jesus Christ but does that now make them even Christian? (Mat 7:13 KJV) Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leaded to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

.

I know of three essential Christian truths for a start
1: sinful, unrepentant man is going to hell
2: Jesus Christ saves, heals, delivers, etc., all those who come to him on his terms.
3: Jesus also baptizes us with the Holy Spirit.

.

(Luke 4:18 KJV) The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

.Mat 10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

.

Like in all Major Christian issues, the Full Gospel, Salvation, Healing, Prophecy, Baptism of the Holy Spirit, tongues, Spiritual gifts, Faith, Giving Alms to the poor and even the Tithing are now too often not being Biblically, being fully, honestly presented in most places, in most churches, on the net too.

.

Forget that the word Christ, Greek Christos is the historical basis of all believers being now called Christians for 2000 years.. add your own man made definition, biblical misinterpretation of what a Christian is and thus you do not have to agree with God’s definition ehh.. and what no one wants to admit that now is more unaccepted lies, perversities too.

Some people now do not believe in the Baptism of the Holy spirit as a second separate experience but may even belive in evangelism a word, incidentally, not found as such in the Scripture This tends to shows how they and you pick and chose what you will believe sill too? But still Salvation is multidimensional. Its basic and primary meaning includes sozo, healed, saved, delivered, the manifestations of the charismatics gifts of the holy spirit.

.

(2 Cor 1:21 KJV) Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;

.

Acts 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

.

Acts 11:19 Now they which were scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about Stephen travelled as far as Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to none but unto the Jews only. 20 And some of them were men of Cyprus and Cyrene, which, when they were come to Antioch, spake unto the Grecians, preaching the Lord Jesus. :21 And the hand of the Lord was with them: and a great number believed, and turned unto the Lord. 22 Then tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in Jerusalem: and they sent forth Barnabas, that he should go as far as Antioch. 23 Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord. 24 For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost and of faith: and much people was added unto the Lord. 25 Then departed Barnabas to Tarsus, for to seek Saul: 26 And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. 27 And in these days came prophets from Jerusalem unto Antioch. 28 And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar. 29 Then the disciples, every man according to his ability, determined to send relief unto the brethren which dwelt in Judaea: 30 Which also they did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.

.

ANTIOCH was the second most mentioned city in the Acts of the Apostles and the third city of importance in the Roman Empire; This landmark of Syria, because of its location, size and importance in the Roman Empire, moved to be the second center of Christianity.

.

Now previously they called each other, “brethren”, “disciples”, “apostles”, “servants”, “believers”, “followers”, “the faithful”, “the elect”, “the called”, and “saints;. “bondservants”  of Christ. It is noteworthy that our Lord Jesus Christ he never gave any name to his people; he called them disciples, which signifies pupils, learners. The apostles have applied to the Church, the Christians various terms, such as “church of the living God;” “church of God;” “church of Christ;” “the church;” but gradually they became know under the name “Christians,”

.

(Christian) occurs but three times in the New Testament,;; SEEN ALSO IN

(Acts 26:28 KJV) Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.

1 Peter 4: 14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. 15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters. 16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. (KJV)

.

The disciples owned their dependence upon Christ, and all of their receiving from him; not only that they believed in him who is the anointed, but that through him they themselves had the anointing,

.

1 John 2:20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. 21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. 22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. 24 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. 25 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life. 26 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. :27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man

.

And God is said to have anointed us in Christ,
2 Cor 1:21 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; 22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

.

Remembering that the believers in Antioch spoke Greek and any reference to Jesus would be used in its Greek form, Christ. The suffix “ian” is actually Latin, implying that it was the Roman officials who first took the Greek, Christ, and added a Latin ending to the term and began referring to the followers of Christ as Christian.

.

but some even so called Christians they do still chose parts of the Bible that they falsely pick over other parts and they chose what they will belive and still say they are Christians while neglecting the full gospel of Jesus Christ. They like you them are deceived. So as who t now realy were now do you speak in tongues, and have you learned to listen yet to voice of God as well.. or are you merely still using their mind, or listening , parroting what others say

.

The many professing Christen Biblical contradictions firstly do lie in the own clear Biblical ignorance and the clear lack of a real DEPTH, lack of a real personal relationship with God, Jesus and the holy spirit firstly. Pretentious Christians they are too much of a fool still to even now try to correct me or try to bash, me teach others.. for if they say they are Christ like then they have been anointed with the Holy Sprit like Christ our example was in acts 10:38. and thus they and you can pray, speak in tongues, as well as lay hands on the sick and they will recover..

.

JESUS ALSO RELIED FULLY ON GOD’S HELP, LEADING. (John 5:19 KJV) Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.(John 5:30 KJV) I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

.

I really do rightfully get upset with any and all of the Bible distorters, legalists, Judaizers, Seventh day Adventists who try to mislead God’s Christians and others. They clearly and falsely use the flesh, pride to try to attain their spiritual things, their accomplishment while Jesus clearly had said (John 15:5 KJV) 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. I rightfully do have very little respect for the people who come even here now and even do demand that we follow after their teachings, that obey the law as they define it too

.

Too many persons now re are listening to the devil over me, Jesus the Holy Spirit and God, another false self centered persons, an attention seeker, cause they seem to have a big void in your life, that troubles them, they do not have the love of God, the holy spirit in their big god shaped vacuum,
So accept Jesus Christ as Lord, get Baptized in the Holy spirit, pray in tongues and get real joy like i did I see you talk too much and do very real listening now to God.. no wonder you are ill, lost, unsaved. MT 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

.

Now when I see people start to use Jewish titles for Jesus, being ashamed to mention the name Jesus the Christ directly, I realy start to belive that they too now have gone of the deep end.. THEY ARE GRASPING AT STRAWS LOOING FOR PERSONAL HAPPINESS

.

I see many people talk too much and do very real listening now to God.. no wonder they are ill, lost, unsaved too

.

RATHER TOO OFTEN can see still another false self centered persons, an attention seeker, and not a true Christian cause they still do have a big void in your life, that troubles them, for they do not have the love of God, the holy spirit in their big god shaped vacuum, they all must accept Jesus Christ as Lord, get Baptized in the Holy spirit, pray in tongues and get real joy like I did

.
Matt 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

.

ASK JESUS CHRIST THE BAPTIZER IN THE HOLY SPIRIT TO BAPTIZE YOU WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND FILL YOU WITH THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH IN JESUS NAME

.

Salvation is multidimensional. Its basic and primary meaning includes sozo, healed, saved, delivered, the manifestations of the charismatics gifts of the holy spirit. but some they do chose parts of the Bible that they falsely pick over other parts and they chose what they will belive and still say they are Christians while neglecting the full gospel of Jesus Christ. They like you them are deceived. And do you speak in tongues, and have you learned to listen yet to voice of God as well.. or are you merely still using their mind, or listening , parroting what others say.

.

The many professing Christen Biblical contradictions firstly do lie in the own clear Biblical ignorance and the clear lack of a real DEPTH, lack of a real personal relationship with God, Jesus and the holy spirit firstly. Pretentious Christians they are too much of a fool still to even now try to correct me or try to bash, me teach others.. for if they say they are Christ like then they have been anointed with the Holy Sprit like Christ our example was in acts 10:38. and thus they and you can pray, speak in tongues, as well as lay hands on the sick and they will recover..

.

OFTEN DO NOTICE THAT MANY PEOPLE DISTORT THE BIBLE TO TRY TO MAKE THEMSELVES FIRSTLY FEEL BETTER
ARE YOU A DISTORTER OF GOD’S WORD AND YOU DO THAT CAUSE YOU NOW ARE A VERY UNHAPPY, TROUBLED PERSON WITH A GOD SHAPED VACUUM STILL. .

.

.(1 John 1:9 KJV) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

.

MANY PREACHERS WEAR EXPENSIVE CLOTHS LIVE IN EXPENSIVE HOUSES DRIVE EXPENSIVE CARS ON THE MONEY YOU GIVE THEM CAUSE BASICALLY THEY ARE REALY MISERABLE, LOOKING FOR A HAPPINESS THEY WILL NEVER HAVE CAUSE THEY REJECTED GOD’S WAY.. WHEN I AM HAPPY I LIKE TO WEAR CASUALS

.

YES I have often wondered why so many people add to or try to take away from what the Word of God, the Bible, Jesus and the Holy Spirit do Say.. Now are they really listening to the voice of God or to the voice of the devil now? why do they listen to the devils voice over God is it due to their false, selfish pride, the need to do one’s own thing? it sure seems so.. It falsely still appeals to one’s flesh one being able to earn one’s salvation or to add to it.

.

One of the first thing I want you now also to notice is that Jesus and the Apostles confirm all the essential doctrines from the old testament in the new testament.. those not mentioned by them are not basic essential Christian doctrines.. and not rather past traditions or past opinion of mere men.. and most honest Biblical scholars would need to agree to this? http://comeholyspirit.wordpress.com/2010/11/08/a-sabbath-rest-or-a-godly-rest/
