We cannot talk about the Holy Spirit without mentioning this greatest man of God. Yes John the Baptist who prepared the way for the coming of the one and only Lord Jesus Christ who alone baptizes with the Holy Spirit fire which gives power. We must flee from sexual immorality .Every other sin committed is outside the body; but he who commits sexual immorality, sins against his own body. However all other sins are also a huge hindrance to the Holy Spirit help in truly setting people free, The Holy Spirit is given permission again by the person’s obedience to God’s will concerning a matter. So our bodies must be keep Holy because, as a redeemed of the Lord Jesus Christ. Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit. Note that the temple of the Holy Spirit is not a building but it is you the redeemed of the Lord. And you carry the temple wherever you go, you bring the Kingdom of heaven with you. So the blessing is not in a place but in a person.
The Holy Spirit in us is from the risen Christ our God. Halleluiah! We are not our own, for we were bought with a price, therefore we glorify God in our bodies and in our spirits. Apart from the Holy Spirit we cannot glorify God. The truth is the Holy Spirit is from Jesus Christ who ascended in to heaven for our advantage, in order to send us the Holy Spirit our helper who can only be given by the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin because they do not believe in Jesus Christ and of righteousness because Jesus is gone to be with the father God and of judgement because the ruler of this world is judged. Jesus our Lord even prayed to the father to give us another comforter, so that the Holy Spirit may abide with us forever. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth whom the world cannot receive because the world cannot see or know the Holy Spirit. We who have been baptized in the Holy Spirit do. Baptism comes through trials and tribulation as we receive power to overcome every trial and every tribulation into victory. Victory in Jesus! Halleluiah!
The Holy Spirit in us shows us all truth and guides us because he is the spirit of truth who teaches us and shows us what he hears from the father and what is to come. The Holy Spirit will always glorify Jesus Christ in any Ministry. Watch out for Ministries that do not glorify Jesus by the Lord’s teachings. The Holy Spirit takes what is the Lords and declares it to us. Halleluiah! Praise the Lord our God, Glory to God in the Highest! Because everything God the Father has is the Lords and the spirit helps us to know the heart of the Father God. Praise God Almighty! We can never be in darkness. The light of Christ is our Light.
Consider this, even as evil as the nature of man is, when his children ask for bread, would he give them a snake instead? No, he will not, he will give them the bread. So if man as evil as he is can do this for his children, what more of you who has believed in Jesus, how much more will God the Father give the Holy Spirit to him who ask? Just know that the giving will come with some trials, but be rest assured that the resurrection power of the Christ has your back because so that way you will know for sure that you have the Holy Spirit. If you have never experience any trials, you may still be dancing with the devil of your soul (the serpent). All who ask will receive, all who knock the door will be opened and he who believes as the scripture has said, out of his belly shall Flow Rivers of living water, who is the spirit of Christ, the Holy Spirit.
The Lord promised that he will pour out his spirit on all flesh and the sons and daughters shall prophesy the old men shall dream dreams and the young men shall see visions. The Holy Spirit gives us believer’s power to live a victorious live, as we live a victorious life, we become witnesses unto the Lord Jesus Christ by being a witness of Holy Ghost power. Meaning the fruit of the Holy Spirit in our lives is who we are. The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, faithfulness, self-control. The scripture says against such there is no law. Amen! As we are in Christ, our flesh has been crucified with its passions and desires. So if we live in the spirit we should also walk in the spirit.
Every believer who walks in power, will go through different gates of purification or sanctification to the witness of the power of the Holy Spirit that dwells in them. That is why the Lord commanded the disciples to not leave the cities to go to the villages until they have been clothed with power from on high. Meaning that until Jesus has ascended and sends them the Holy Spirit who cloths a believer with power to process the fruit of the Holy Spirit only then can they do the miraculous in setting the captives free. Being filled with the Holy Spirit we can talk in tongues. Speaking in tongues is a heavenly language that has so many benefits.
Repentance and Baptism are the prerequisites of receiving the Holy Spirit. Being filled with the Holy Spirit is 100% better than the euphoria of wine. We as believers are filled with the Holy Spirit through prayer, and we are able to speak God’s truth with boldness and setting captives free. The apostles in the Bible prayed and laid hands on the people to receive the Holy Spirit. Even when Peter spoke multitudes received the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a gift from the Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit will always enable a believer to glorify Jesus Christ and magnify God. The Holy Spirit is not automatically given to a person when they believe or even when they get baptized. God gives as he pleases. The Holy Spirit is received through prayer and a yielded life.
Living life in the Holy Spirit, is a Kingdom of Heaven Citizen‘s Lifestyle. Christian living is only possible with the help of the Holy Spirit. Praise God of our Salvation. Halleluiah. Glory to God in the Highest, Glory to the Holy Spirit. And we say, have your way Holy Spirit. We will not grieve the Holy Spirit anymore. Have your way in our lives, churches, cities, countries and continents and the universe. The Lord Jesus Christ be glorified for ever and ever. Halleluiah! Praise God for the Holy Spirit and truth which has set us free!!! Shalom! REJOICE YOU ARE FREE! Merry Christmas! Jesus is the reason for the season. Shalom!
