Holy Spirit

Good Morning all. As I have previously told you, God is doing some changing and most of the changing is on me. But if you read or listen then the change is on you also. I will start putting out more of God's Word. We are still in Exodus and we are still learning more of God's Word and how to really apply it to our lives. Now where I am going in the Scripture, Jesus has already been crucified and rose again. I am starting out in Acts 1:4. 4-And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, "which" He said, "you have heard from Me," 5- for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now." Ok guys not only do you get a water baptism, you must also receive the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is our guide. He is our conscious. He directs in the right path. He cries out when we don't know what to cry out for. We also need to remember that Jesus, himself, told the disciples that He would send the Holy Spirit when He went away. Turn to John 14:15-18. 15-"If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16- And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever- 17- the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him, but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. 18- I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you." Jesus said the Holy Spirit is our truth. This is also where we can get wisdom and knowledge in understanding all the words of God. Not what we think it means but what God says it means. Now back to Acts. They were still worried about the restoration of Israel. And as of this day, Israel is still not fully restored. But we need to remember, that all will hate Israel. And let's pick up in verse 7- And He said to them, "It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority." Stop right there. We will not know everything. All we have to do is trust and obey God's commands. Hence the study in Exodus, it is our foundation. 8- But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." We are to be witnesses of Jesus. The world can not know the Holy Spirit but if you say you belong to Christ, then you have all the powers of the Holy Spirit. We do not know when Jesus will return, but we must be ready and working. God's message has really stopped going forth. And when all in that upper room received the Holy Spirit, the crowd outside thought they were drunk. I am here to tell you that when you live in the Holy Spirit, people will avoid you and make fun of you. They will talk about you. They will call you names. It is no different in our day as it was when Jesus sent the Holy Spirit. We are meant to be different. We are meant to see the world different. We are meant to spread the One True Word of God. And the reason that I say it like that, is we have One God, One Jesus, One Holy Spirit which means they are not arguing with each other they are all together. And where are we Christians, we are arguing about what the word means and how to apply it to our lives. We all need to get humble and ask God what the Word means, not according to our traditions or our denominations but to God. Look at the Word of God as something you have just heard about and forget what you have been taught. Look at it with child like eyes. Turn to Matthew 18:1-5. 1- At that time the disciples came to Jesus saying, "Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" 2- Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, 3- and said, "Assuredly; I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children; you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. 4- Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 8- Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me." Pray for a revival of the Holy Spirit in our souls. Then let's become child like and just follow Christ. Let's stop arguing and get on working. I don't want Jesus to come and not find me working. Have a blessed day and Rise up in the name of Jesus.
