As I stated in a previous post on the Holy Trinity, the Holy Spirit is the 3rd person in the Trinity, distinct in character but the same and equal as God. Again, the Holy Trinity is a mystery and I did try to clarify it in that post so you can read it up there for enlightenment.
Within the Word of God (the Bible), the Holy Spirit is called different names – the Paraclete, the Comforter, the Helper, Breath of the Almighty God, Power from the Highest, Eternal Spirit, Spirit of the Father, Spirit of Christ, Spirit in the Son, Spirit of life and so on and so forth.
When He had almost completed His mission on earth, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ told His Apostles in John 14:15-17, “If you love me, you’ll obey my commandments. I’ll ask the Father (God) and He will give you an additional Helper, who will stay with you forever. He is the Spirit who reveals the truth about God.
The world can’t obtain Him, since it can not see Him. But you know Him, since He remains with you and is in you.”
Jesus was referring for the Holy Spirit here and He produced a clear distinction that only those that obey His commandments would obtain the Holy Spirit who will reveal the truth about God.
Jesus goes additional to say in John 14:18-21, “When I go, you’ll not be left all alone; I’ll come back to you. Within a tiny although the planet will see me no more, but you’ll see me; and simply because I reside, you also will live. When that day comes, you’ll realize that I am inside the Father and which you are in me, just as I’m in you.
Whoever accepts my commandments and obeys them may be the a single who loves me. My Father will adore whoever adore me; I too will love him and reveal myself to him.”
Once more Jesus is referring towards the Holy Trinity (God the Father, Himself, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit).
We clearly infer from Jesus’ statement that any person who does not obey His commandments will not love Him and His Father (God) loves those who obey Jesus’ commands and Jesus loves and reveals Himself to them.
So the Holy Spirit of God only comes to those who obey Jesus’s commandments. Jesus fulfilled His promise of the Holy Spirit to His Apostles on Pentecost Day, ten days following He ascended to Heaven (Acts two:1-12). The Holy Spirit has guided the Physique of Christ (the Church) via the ages, revealing the truth about God till this present day.
We see this in Jesus’ words to His Apostles in John 16:12-15, “I have significantly a lot more to tell you, but now it will be as well significantly for you personally to bear. When, nevertheless, the Spirit comes, who reveals the truth about God, He will lead you into all truth. He will not speak on His personal authority, but He will speak of what He hears, and will tell you of things to come.
He will give me glory, simply because He will take what I say and inform it to you. All that my Father has is mine; which is why I said that the Spirit will take what I give Him and inform it to you.”
Certainly, any person who sincerely obeys Jesus’ commandments would possess the guarantee from the Holy Spirit as a guide for the truth about God. People who disobey Jesus’ commandments can’t have the promise in the Holy Spirit. They are the ones Jesus refers to as the globe that can not see or obtain the Holy Spirit.
How does a person know if he or she has the Holy Spirit in him or her? Is it by claiming to know God or Jesus Christ? The Word of God clarifies this issue in Galatians five:16-26, “What I say is this: let the Holy Spirit direct your lives, and you will not satisfy the desires of human nature.
For what our human nature desires is opposed to what the Spirit desires, and what the Spirit wants is opposed to what our human nature desires. These two are enemies, and this implies that you can not do what you would like to do. If the Spirit leads you, then you aren’t topic towards the law.
What human nature does is fairly plain. It shows itself in immoral, filthy and indecent actions; in worship of idols and witchcraft. Folks turn out to be enemies and they fight; they turn out to be jealous, angry and ambitious. They separate into parties and groups; they are envious, get drunk, have orgies, and do other issues like these. I warn you now as I have prior to: people who do these issues is not going to possess the Kingdom of God.
However the Spirit produces really like, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, and self-control. There is certainly no law against such issues as these. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have put to death their human nature with all its passions and desires. The Spirit has provided us life; He must also handle our lives. We should not be proud or irritate one yet another or be jealous of a single yet another.”
These qualities in the preceding paragraph would be the fruits of the Holy Spirit that manifest in those who adore Christ Jesus and obey His commandments and whom the Holy Spirit will come into their lives.
Dear reader, it really is essential to note right here that our Lord Jesus Christ also loves those who usually do not obey His commands, but the adore He has for them is what made Him die on the cross for mankind’s sins to reconcile mankind to God over two,013 years ago. Jesus, who is God and the creator of every thing in Heaven and on earth knows the starting in the finish.
He knows that anybody right here on earth who’s not obeying His commands is living a dangerous life and doesn’t have the Holy Spirit as a guide to the truth about God. If such person dies and leaves this earth in sin, that person’s soul ends up in hell FOREVER without any other opportunity for repentance. The chance for repentance is only right here on earth and NOW when we are nevertheless alive.
ONLY those that obey Jesus’ commandments would make it to Heaven after they depart this planet because the Holy Spirit will often be with them here on earth to lead them to the truth about God as Jesus promised and as continues to happen till today.
Jesus produced hell for Satan and his demons but many people continue to sin by disobeying Jesus’ commands and die to finish up in eternal torment in hell with Satan. A lot of souls die each and every single day in sin and are presently in hell undergoing torment.
Jesus continues to weep everyday for this reason very sad truth and in His really like and mercy as our Father He has taken several folks to show them the realities of hell with perished souls there in eternal torment and heaven with its astounding beauty and returned these witnesses to earth having a warning to mankind to repent of sins and turn to Him (Jesus) as the ONLY assure of acquiring to heaven.
Satan now continues to laugh since he and his demons are presently tormenting the souls of those who died in sin in hell. Satan will get his own punishment when hell and death are cast in to the lake burning with fire and sulphur, that is the second death (Revelation 21:eight).
As I write this message, this really is an chance for you personally, dear reader, and I as we’re nonetheless alive to examine our lives cautiously and repent of our sins, turn to Jesus Christ and accept Him as Lord and Saviour of our lives and ask for His Holy Spirit to direct us for the truth about God.
I plead with you not to harden your heart as you read this message. Don’t allow Satan to deceive you while right here on earth. People who did within the past and have died are regretting it now in hell fire but it is also late to repent there. The opportunity to repent is only right here on earth and the time for you to repent is NOW, not tomorrow or inside the future simply because nobody knows the day the end would come for him or her.
God bless you as you listen to His voice today, accept this message of life, act on it sincerely and share it with other people you know are genuinely in need. May the Lord bless you abundantly as you comply in Jesus’ Mighty name, Amen.
