Salvation Plan

wow, look what a powerful message on being saved that I found. from way back.
I say anyone who wants to have salvation had best read this and then check out what you are already ‘counting’ on.

The Foundation for salvation
There are commands given to those who are seeking to become a Child of God. There are certain things one must do in order to become a son of God.
Of course the first thing is to come to believe in Jesus Christ, the son of God. Then one must truly repent of their sins. Then we have a COMMAND to be water baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of our sins.
If you reject this much, you will never make it in. You cannot go on to perfection if you are unwilling to do the foundational first steps. You are saying to God that you will not obey his commands as to how to become a child of God. You cannot map out your own plan. You must follow the exact plan which God has already set. The apostles of Jesus taught us the right way to become a saved child of God. No other way is given or accepted by God. So forget all else and obey the message given to this world by the Apostles.
Along with this water baptism, must be given to you the baptism of the Holy Ghost. It must be according to the pattern already laid out in the Book of Acts. There is no other place it is given. If you refuse this baptism of the Holy Ghost, with the evidence of speaking in other tongues, then you will never be placed into the body of Christ. Unless you are placed into the body of Christ, you will never have salvation.
You will remain under the condemnation of the OT covenant and be lost. Here is the proof that the foundation, or our very starting place, is in repentance and baptism:
Heb 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
Heb 6:2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of the resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
Heb 6:3 And this will we do, if God permit.
See that he said the foundation is repentance from dead works, (trying to serve God by the old law, that is the dead works. Sinning is not considered dead works. It is just sin. We must repent of thinking that trying to keep the old law can give us salvation), and of course, faith toward God is part of this foundation. Then we have baptisms, (water and Holy Ghost), and of laying on of hands and of the resurrection of the dead and eternal judgment.
Heb 6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, Heb 6:5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, Heb 6:6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
So, what it the above speaking about? What is the ‘falling away?’ Paul said after you come to Grace, have received NT salvation, the Holy Ghost, if you go back to the law, you fall from grace. This is exactly what it is speaking about here. In Scripture, the law is represented by Briers and thorns. This is showing that after one has been baptized with the Holy Ghost, then turns around and says that they now need to go back to the law of Moses, to reach perfection, they are falling away from Grace, and crucifying Christ afresh and putting him to an open shame. You are saying that he was not able to take you on to perfection, that you have to do it with the dead works of that old law!
But look at the terrible place you put yourself into by doing this. He said it is impossible to renew you again unto repentance. Then look down at verse 8. That which bears thorns and briers is REJECTED and is nigh unto cursing, whose end is to be burned. The thorns and briers mean that old law. You can prove this by studying the meanings of those words, in a good Hebrew dictionary. Why it this nigh unto cursing? Because that law is a curse. It is a curse to be under it. The end of those who return to law, after coming into Christ or the Holy Ghost, is to be BURNED. So this is where you place yourself. No more repentance; no more sacrifice for your sins. All you have left is to be burned in hellfire. So this is a warning to everyone. You must get away from that old law and come into the New Laws of perfecting, taught by the Apostles and Jesus.
Heb 6:7 For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God: Heb 6:8 But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.
