Consider the following before you begin your study:
If you are a born-again believer, you are commanded to be filled with the Spirit.
Be filled with the Spirit. (Eph 5:18b)
If we acknowledge [name and cite] our sins, He is faithful and righteous, with the result that He forgives us our sins [known sins] and purifies us from all unrighteousness [unknown sins]. (1Jo 1:9)
If you are an unbeliever, the issue is faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. You must be born again.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (Joh 3:3)
“Believe on the Lord Jesus, and you shall be saved.” (Act 16:31)
The Word of God is meant to be taught according to isagogics (historical background), categories of doctrine (comparing scripture with scripture), and exegesis (the study of the original languages—Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek).
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. (Eph 3:20-21)
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Phi 4:6-7)
