When a man is converted to God, it is done in a moment.
Regeneration is an instantaneous work.
Conversion to God, the fruit of regeneration, occupies all
our life, but regeneration itself is effected in an instant.
A man hates God– the Holy Spirit makes him love God.
A man is opposed to Christ, he hates his gospel, does not
understand it and will not receive it– the Holy Spirit comes,
puts light into his darkened understanding, takes the chain
from his bondaged will, gives liberty to his conscience, gives
life to his dead soul, so that the voice of conscience is heard,
and the man becomes a new creature in Christ Jesus.
And all this is done, mark you, by the instantaneous
supernatural influence of God the Holy Spirit working
as he wills among the sons of men.
Spurgeon’s, “THE OUTPOURING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT”
I love what Spurgeon wrote here and I wanted to add one of the clearest verses and one of my favorite verse in the OT that first of all says, its all God, God said I will, I will and I will and again I Will. God starts salvation and it’s INSTANTANEOUS!!!
Thank you Lord for calling and choosing and saving me, a great Sinner!!
26 And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules.
in Him with love
