“And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.” (1 Jn 5:8) They agree in Salvation. “This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.” (1 Jn 5:6) “But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.” (Jn 19:34) “And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.” (Jn 19:35)
Did you know the Spirit, and the water, and the blood represents Salvation? Repentance is representative of you dying out to you sins or death, being baptized in Jesus name is representative of being buried with Christ where the body of sin is destroyed, and the receiving of the Spirit is representative of the likeness of Christ’s resurrection where we are promised that we too will be caught away when the Lord comes to meet us in the air.
“Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin.” (Rm 6:3-7) “But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.” (Rm 8:11)
