In this chapter you will learn about the foundation for marriage. The Bible is very clear in who you are to marry. We are not to be unequally yoked. Is the man you want to marry really Godly? God knows. It is important to be asking God for direction and follow His leading.
One of the sweetest verses in the Bible. Heaven's court of perfect justice declaring that condemnation is removed for all who are in Christ Jesus and walking in the Spirit. Here is justification, sanctification and union with Christ. All of which are only possible through Christ.
What does the Bible tell us about the baptism with the Holy Spirit?
BAPTISM BY THE HOLY SPIRIT INCLUDES ALL BELIEVERS.

BAPTISM with THE HOLY SPIRIT BRINGS THE NEW BELIEVER INTO UNION WITH CHRIST.
BAPTISM with THE HOLY SPIRIT DOES NOT DEPEND ON SOME OR OTHER EXPERIENCE.
BAPTISM BY THE HOLY SPIRIT IS SOMETHING DONE BY THE HOLY SPIRIT.
In Romans 7:1–6, the apostle Paul speaks about the believer's release from the law and his union with Jesus Christ. Pastor Paul van Engelenhoven preaches the point of Romans 7, the picture of marriage, the believer's release from the law, and the believer's union to Jesus Christ.
"Likewise, my brothers, you also have died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to him who has been raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God."
This perseverance of the saints depends not upon their own free will, but upon the immutability of the decree of election, flowing from the free and unchangeable love of God the Father, upon the efficacy of the merit and intercession of Jesus Christ and union with Him, the oath of God, the abiding of His Spirit, and the seed of God within them, and the nature of the covenant of grace; from all which ariseth also the certainty and infallibility thereof.
