As I stated in a prior post on the Holy Trinity, the Holy Spirit may be the 3rd individual of the Trinity, distinct in personality but the identical and equal as God. Again, the Holy Trinity is actually a mystery and I did try to clarify it in that post so you’ll be able to read it up there for enlightenment.
Within the Word of God (the Bible), the Holy Spirit is called various names – the Paraclete, the Comforter, the Helper, Breath from the Almighty God, Power from the Highest, Eternal Spirit, Spirit in the Father, Spirit of Christ, Spirit of the Son, Spirit of life and so on and so forth.
When He had virtually 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 will ask the Father (God) and He will give you yet another Helper, who will stay with you forever. He is the Spirit who reveals the truth about God.
The globe cannot get Him, since it can not see Him. But you understand Him, because He remains with you and is in you.”
Jesus was referring towards the Holy Spirit here and He produced a clear distinction that only people who obey His commandments would receive the Holy Spirit who will reveal the truth about God.
Jesus goes further to say in John 14:18-21, “When I go, you will not be left all alone; I will come back to you. Inside a tiny while the globe will see me no a lot more, but you’ll see me; and because I reside, you also will reside. When that day comes, you will realize that I’m within the Father and that you simply are in me, just as I am in you.
Whoever accepts my commandments and obeys them will be the 1 who loves me. My Father will really like whoever love me; I as well will love him and reveal myself to him.”
Again 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 anyone who doesn’t obey His commandments will not love Him and His Father (God) loves those that obey Jesus’ commands and Jesus loves and reveals Himself to them.
So the Holy Spirit of God only comes to people who obey Jesus’s commandments. Jesus fulfilled His guarantee of the Holy Spirit to His Apostles on Pentecost Day, ten days after He ascended to Heaven (Acts 2:1-12). The Holy Spirit has guided the Physique of Christ (the Church) by means of 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 a lot more to tell you, but now it will be too a lot for you to bear. When, nonetheless, the Spirit comes, who reveals the truth about God, He will lead you into all truth. He is not going to speak on His personal authority, but He will speak of what He hears, and will inform you of items to come.
He will give me glory, since He will take what I say and inform it to you. All that my Father has is mine; that is why I mentioned that the Spirit will take what I give Him and tell it to you.”
Certainly, any person who sincerely obeys Jesus’ commandments would have the promise from the Holy Spirit as a guide towards the truth about God. People who disobey Jesus’ commandments can not possess the guarantee of the Holy Spirit. These are the ones Jesus refers to because the globe that can not see or get the Holy Spirit.
How does someone know if he or she has the Holy Spirit in him or her? Is it by claiming to understand God or Jesus Christ? The Word of God clarifies this concern in Galatians five:16-26, “What I say is this: let the Holy Spirit direct your lives, and you won’t satisfy the desires of human nature.
For what our human nature wants is opposed to what the Spirit wants, and what the Spirit desires is opposed to what our human nature wants. These two are enemies, and this implies that you can’t do what you want to do. In the event the Spirit leads you, then you aren’t topic to the law.
What human nature does is quite plain. It shows itself in immoral, filthy and indecent actions; in worship of idols and witchcraft. People 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: those that do these things won’t 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 items as these. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have place to death their human nature with all its passions and desires. The Spirit has provided us life; He should also control our lives. We should not be proud or irritate one an additional or be jealous of one yet another.”
These qualities within the preceding paragraph would be the fruits in the Holy Spirit that manifest in those that adore Christ Jesus and obey His commandments and whom the Holy Spirit will come into their lives.
Dear reader, it really is crucial to note right here that our Lord Jesus Christ also loves those that do not obey His commands, but the love He has for them is what created Him die on the cross for mankind’s sins to reconcile mankind to God over 2,013 years ago. Jesus, who is God and also the creator of everything in Heaven and on earth knows the starting from the end.
He knows that any person right here on earth who is not obeying His commands is living a harmful life and doesn’t have the Holy Spirit as a guide towards the truth about God. If such individual dies and leaves this earth in sin, that person’s soul ends up in hell FOREVER without any other likelihood for repentance. The likelihood for repentance is only here on earth and NOW when we are nevertheless alive.
ONLY people who obey Jesus’ commandments would make it to Heaven after they depart this planet since the Holy Spirit will always be with them right here on earth to lead them towards the truth about God as Jesus promised and as continues to occur till these days.
Jesus developed hell for Satan and his demons but many people continue to sin by disobeying Jesus’ commands and die to end up in eternal torment in hell with Satan. Plenty of souls die 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 a number of 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 with a warning to mankind to repent of sins and turn to Him (Jesus) as the ONLY assure of getting to heaven.
Satan now continues to laugh because he and his demons are presently tormenting the souls of people 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, which is the second death (Revelation 21:eight).
As I write this message, this is an opportunity for you, dear reader, and I as we’re still alive to examine our lives carefully 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 to not harden your heart as you read this message. Do not allow Satan to deceive you while here on earth. Those who did in the father the son and the holy spirit past and have died are regretting it now in hell fire nevertheless it is too late to repent there. The likelihood to repent is only here on earth and also the time for you to repent is NOW, not tomorrow or within the future because no one knows the day the end would come for him or her.
God bless you as you listen to His voice right now, accept this message of life, act on it sincerely and share it with other individuals you realize are truly in require. May the Lord bless you abundantly as you comply in Jesus’ Mighty name, Amen.
