Appendix A

God's Terms of Salvation

"If any man would be saved, he must believe that Jesus Christ is both Lord and God. Again, you must confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, that is, Ruler and Master. You must cheerfully become His disciple, follower, and servant. You must confess, 'He is my Master; He is my Lord. I intend to be a soldier under Him. He shall be to me Leader and Commander; God has made Him such, and I accept Him as such.' You are vocally to own Jesus; you are definitely and distinctly to say with your tongue, your mouth, your lips, that he is your Lord and Saviour.... With my mouth I do again confess the Lord Jesus, for I believe Him to be very God of very God, my Master, My All." 

C.H. Spurgeon

"Your lying professions mock Him.... If you have never believed in Him and repented of sin, and yielded obedience to His command, if you do not own Him in your daily life to be both Lord and King, I charge you lay down the profession which is so dishonouring to Him. If He be God, serve Him; if He be King, obey Him; if He be neither, then do not profess to be Christians. Be honest and bring no crown if you do not accept Him as King." 

C.H. Spurgeon, 

A Treasury of Spurgeon on the Life 

and Work of Our Lord, 

Vol. 6, p. 410 [Matthew 27:29]

1. Except as noted, quotes extracted from Quoting Spurgeon, Bake Book House, 1994 (Used by permission).

"Submission to the will of God, to Christ's lordship, and to the guiding of the Spirit is an essential, not an optional, part of saving faith. A new, untaught believer will understand little of the full implications of such obedience, but the spiritual orientation of his new nature in Christ will bring a desire for submission to God's Word and God's Spirit. A person who does not have that desire has no legitimate claim on salvation." 

John F. MacArthur, Jr.

"The baby sucks, instinctively; and the born again person also feels a hunger for spiritual food first the milk and then the meat of God's revealed Word (1 Peter 2:2; Hebrews 5:12-14; 1 Corinthians 3:2). He listens to the Word preached and taught and discussed; he reads it in his Bible; he asks questions about it; he meditates on it, memorizes it, chews the cud on it, labours to squeeze all the goodness out of it. 'Oh, how I love Thy law! It is my meditation all the day.... How sweet are Thy words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!' (Psalm 119:97,103). Constantly to crave for God's Word and to want to go deeper into it is thus a second sign of being regenerate... Regeneration is no more (and no less!) than the work of God in our hearts which leads to the gospel being whole-heartedly received. 2. If only God would make us simple enough to see this and, having seen it, never to lose sight of it! Then the Christian world would be a very different place."

All New! A Brief Testimony Re: APPENDIX B

Prayers Compiler Pleads With Fellow Christians to Make

a Part of Their Daily Private Prayer Life:

When you wake in the morning pray:


"Father, render me dead to sin.1" Cleanse me by the blood of Jesus. 2 Fill me with Thy Holy Spirit 3 and lead me by Thy Holy Spirit 4 this day and all the days of my life. Likewise, may this prayer apply to all of Thy people. In Jesus name I pray Amen" 5


"Father, give me the grace right now to consider myself dead indeed unto sin6 but alive unto Thee through Jesus Christ my Lord. Shout in the ear of Satan that You sent the Lord Jesus Christ to expose Satan and all the demons to be shattered, empty and defeated in Jesus' own triumphant victory at the cross where he shed His precious blood for the sin of the world. 7

Appendix C

APPENDIX C

There is a real consensus among the great pastor-teachers that these are the five most marvelous prayers in all of Scripture. The editor pleads with all Christians to consider making these a part of their daily private prayer life!


"Oh, my brethren, you will not do better than to quote Scripture, especially in prayer. There are no prayers so good as those that are full of the Word Of God." 

C. H. Spurgeon


John 17:17-26 

17 Sanctify them through Thy truth: Thy word is truth.


18 As Thou hast sent Me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.


19 And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.


20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on Me through their word;


21 That they all may be one; as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in Thee, that they also may be one in Us: that the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me.


22 And the glory which Thou gavest Me I have given them; that they may be one, even as We are one:


23 I in them, and Thou in Me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that Thou hast sent Me, and hast loved them, as Thou hast loved Me.


24 Father, I will that they also, whom Thou hast given Me, be with Me where I am; that they may behold My glory, which Thou hast given Me: for thou lovedst Me before the foundation of the world.


25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known Thee: but I have known Thee, and these have known that Thou hast sent Me.


26 And I have declared unto them Thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith Thou hast loved Me may be in them, and I in them.


Ephesians 3:14-21 

14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,


15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,


16 That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man;


17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,


18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;


19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.


20 Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,


21 Unto Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.


Ephesians 1:15-23 

15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,


16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;


17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him:


18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,


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.


Philippians 1:8-11 

8 For God is my witness, how greatly I long after you all in [the affection and tender mercies of Christ Jesus Himself].


9 And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment;


10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ;


11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

 

Colossians 1:9-12 

9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;


10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;


11 Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;


12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us fit to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light.
