There can be no doubt that God certainly saves everybody just as he or she is, but it is evident in His Word that God never intended to leave anybody the way He finds him or her. God always intended that after each believer received His gift of salvation that His Holy Spirit’s sanctification process then would change each believer from the inside out!
Today the Holy Spirit is the ONLY One who reveals God’s spiritual secrets (mysteries), including the “key of knowledge” or the true method of understanding God’s deeper Divine Truths about how believing humans enter into the Kingdom of Heaven! Basically, they first must be born again—they must become spiritually alive, before they can know the Truth that sets them free!

Father’s Day celebrates and honors fathers, fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the impact fathers have on society. On this annual day, fathers receive some of the love and kindness they have given, and they receive plenty of genuine recognition and appreciation for all that they have done (and continue to do) for their loved ones.
The ultimate goal of every believer is NOT to make it into Heaven. The ultimate goal of God’s salvation plan is to have every single one of His sons and daughters achieve Christlikeness. The only way to achieve this goal is to work out everything God has worked into each believer—to work God’s Perfect Will out of each believer. God’s Perfect Will in the believer is His Holy Spirit, who is every believer’s Source of power, authority, gifts, practical sanctification, and so forth.
The Holy Spirit’s spiritual excellence (Oil of anointing or divine empowerment) is an invisible, intangible, supernatural preparedness that God freely gives to His true saints. In other words, this Oil of anointing cannot be bought with worldly possessions, because no human can duplicate the Holy Spirit’s spiritual excellence (Oil of anointing or divine empowerment).
