And are a different people to the ones Peter spoke to on the day of Petticoat; Please read "Now when they heard this they were pricked io their heart' and said nnto Peter and to the rest of toe apostles, Men And brethren, what shall we do? Then Peter said onto, them, Repent, and he baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and e shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost" Acts. 2 37 . Those people bad to repent and be baptised, before they could receive the spirit. They then received the peomise by re penting and being baptised. In this act we have some of those who were born of the water and of the spirit. And the comple tion of this birth and promise to the Jews will be fully accom plished when the restitatirfb of all things are accomplished. And that will be rben this time, comes topasj. Therefore say onto the house of Israel, Thus salLh the Lord God; I do not this for your sakes 0 house of Israel, but for mine holy name.s sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen whither ye went. And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have pro faned in the midst of them and the heathen shall know that I am the Loud salth the Lord God when I shall be' Sanctified ' in you before their eyes, . For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land- i Then will I sprlnk'c clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean; from all your fllthlcess, and from all your idols will I cleanse you.

And I will put my spirit within yon, ard cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judtrment, and do them. Ezek. 36 -2 to 27. The Reader will see that this here NHW Birth is to the Israelites, and that it is the birth to them that Christ spoke of to Nicodeaus, when he said -'ye must be born again." 'mis birtb mast come to tho Jews as a nation, after a sleep of two thousand years in the spirit of slumber, they will be brought forth as life from the dead, by the deliverer who is to come out of Z ion. Giving tbem a new heart and a right spirit. Boing born ogam of the water, 1 and of the spirit As recorded in Ezfkiel as above quoted. They then will have the priviledgo of seeing the kingdom of God. , Wherefore, John being a teacb erto this class of people, although born of God, would say ' It wtf say we have no sin wjc deceive ourntlves." For God. through James explains why -John did this although lie bad been born of Gud, Please read, ''Of his own will begat beus with the word of truth, that we' should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.". (James 1:18.) And as Paul safd, please read; "I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn fon. For though ye have ten thous and instructors in Christ, vet. have ve not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten through the goeple. Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me." (1 Cor. 4-14 15 ltL) ( ... Paul would include himself as . the Father of the family and in clude himself with them, for this reason John did the same. I Those chosen men 1 God, who were the, flrst fruits, of God'j creatures,, the Gentiles. There fore John, included himself in with those who had been born of the water, and the. spirit. And now to conclusion we wish to make a few remarks, so as to be understood. . i, . The nVsby.bJrth we have given above. Those, born of God, are chosen men-o God, men chosen from the foundation of the world: Men like those we have refer ed to,, as ,he first, fruits, the teachers of God's truths Those that were, born of the blood, is those Christ made nigh by His blood, tho Gentiles as above quoted. Those that were born ot the water and the spirit, are those Jews Peter hpoketo on the day oHVnticost, Ahd thotie who received the spirit first and then was 'born, of tho water, was those at the house f Cornelius, And when the Jewish nation re ceives their spiritual birth ssa whole, it will be when God gath ers them from among all nations; then as above stated they will receive the new birth So with those plain facts be fore us, we are confident that our Friend and readers will un- derstnnd the truths For there is just one more birth that I want to speak of, to my friends about and that is our own birth in Christ, at the present time. Faith comes by hear ing and hearing by the Word of God. This then is an impor tant birth to us, it is just out of darkness into light, by the hear ing of the Word. And by becom ing not a hearer only, but a doer of the word. Trustinir our bor may not be in vain, we beg to remain an Obedient Servant to all who read; and thould you with to ask moic questions. please do no.
