    If you have been...

    If you have been converted you would simultaneously have been regenerated. In the immediate moments following what was your first realisation.Best viewed with 20/20 hindsight.

    We know that "In Messiah, all things have become new" but I'm specifically asking about the experience of benefiting from a single first realisation.

    If you can't answer the question don't play guessing games, please.
    I know Him, correctly, as Messiah whom you call Christ. Yah Shua whom you call Jesus. Messianists who you call Christians.

    "Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm".

    I refuse, point blank, to speak peace to the unregenerate, hypocrites, religious dogma lovers and those that oppose the following statement:
    A regenerate man trusts in the evangelism of salvation conditioned on the atoning blood and imputed justness of Messiah alone.
    If you are fully persuaded, by experience, of this delightful, beautiful and life giving doctrine then I love you as a brother.

    Anyone who thinks that salvation is conditioned on anything a man thinks, does or says is atheist. I cannot and will not speak peace to him or her.

    I don't make statements online that I wouldn't repeat in front of my Maker, my grandmother or a judge.

    I had many doubts about what was written in the Scriptures but after I was born again the first thing I realized was that all of my doubts had disappeared!

    The first thing the regenerate man experiences is perfect peace. So silent, so forgiving, so new. The enmity is removed. The hatred is dissolved. Wrath is replaced by grace and peace reigns. A peace so tangible it begs the question, "what has happened to me" and recieves the answer, "you have been saved".
    I know Him, correctly, as Messiah whom you call Christ. Yah Shua whom you call Jesus. Messianists who you call Christians.

    "Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm".

    For a few years after my conversion when I got into a conversation with someone that called themselves a "Christian", I would confirm that they had been converted. If they relpied yes I would ask them "where is your peace"? I have only come across four people who evidenced peace and that's over 20 years.
