Hi and let me start from the beginning of the PATTERN exlained by Christ and the Holy Spirit !!

#1 First man can not save himself as 1 Cor 2:14 says !!

#2 Acts 16:14 God first has to OPEN THE HEART "

#3 Then Rom 10:9 KICKS IN !!

#4 We then know from Eph 2:8 , that THE GIFT OF God !!

#5 Then , that person is INDWELLETH with Holy Spirit as God did to Paul in 1 Cor 12:3 !!

Then Gal 3:28 says that we ARE / ESTE " in Christ " as the PRESENT TENSE , means it is CONTINUOUS ACTION for ever or OSAS !!
