The Holy Spirit Doesn’t Come Upon A Person By Chance!

12892

Hello Everybody! Here’s A Quick Lesson On The Holy Spirit…

Why haven’t I received the Holy Spirit yet? Well, if you are asking this question, at least you have taken a step towards being baptized: you have heard of Him and want to receive Him. However, you can be sure of one thing: He will not come upon you by chance.

The Word of God says:

“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him…” 2 Chronicles 16:9 NKJV

His eyes run to and fro throughout the whole earth. But what is He looking for? What does He need to find in you to seal you with His presence?

Imagine you are a successful businessman that wants to expand his business, but, to achieve this, it is necessary to hire (or promote) people for the position of administrator, manager, etc. If the value of their salary is not a problem, what would be the main characteristics to look for in these people? Besides, of course, the professional experience required for the job, you would certainly look for someone that was determined to help your business grow. In order to do this, the person would need to be confident enough to lead others, but at the same time, HUMBLE enough to learn.

You would want him to share his opinions and bring new ideas to the table, but it would also be necessary for him to be OBEDIENT to follow your instructions.

The investment would be great, but you don’t want someone who is only going to work with you for a few months and then look for a new job. So you look for someone that is FAITHFUL and willing to be by your side in times of glory, as well as times of trouble.

Your vision for the future doesn’t stop there. You want to continue expanding your business and, therefore, other administrators and managers will be needed in the future, so you have to look for people who are not selfish, and are ready to TEACH OTHERS by sharing what they have received from you.

To sum it up, you are looking for people that are HUMBLE, OBEDIENT, FAITHFUL, and ready to TEACH OTHERS.

And isn’t this what God is also trying to find in people so that He can fill them with the Holy Spirit?

He wants people that are humble to learn and obedient to practice His Word. People that are faithful to Him, especially during hard times and temptation, so that they can finish the race, keeping the faith. And of course, people that are ready to share with others what He has given them and, by doing so, His Kingdom can expand.

Therefore, if you are not humble, start being humble. If you are disobedient, start to obey. If you have not been faithful, then start choosing to be. If you are selfish, start sharing – all of these things are choices you make, and the Holy Spirit will help you.

While you seek the baptism from God, don’t expect the Holy Spirit to “magically” come upon you. PROVOKE your baptism with the Holy Spirit by making the eyes of the Lord see these characteristics in you.

And don’t forget: He wants to come upon you much more than you want Him to come upon you.

God bless you.

Living In The Spirit

040413_2134_ThinkLikeGo1

Hello Reader =] Here is your mid week message of Faith…

LIVING BY FAITH!

This is, you live in dependence of the Words of the Almighty. You refuse to allows His promises & His thoughts to come back to you empty.

For as the rain comes down and the snow from heaven and do not return there, but water the earth and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. Isaiah 55.10-11 NKJV

To live in the Spirit is to live in the faith of His Promise, all day, every day. It is to commit to His Word 100% with intelligence. However, those who do not subject their lives to the Word of God, will certainly subject their lives to evil thoughts, which are the words of satan.

Imagine what goes on in the minds of professionals whose thoughts have nothing to do with the Most High? Imagine the freedom that unclean spirits have with these people to urge, inspire, encourage, instill and suggest ideas and thoughts that may be executed by professional authority to cheat, steal, destroy and even kill!

Jesus said that the devil came to kill, steal and destroy. he does this by using the minds of people that are void of God’s Words.

How many accidents have happened because of alcohol? But, who encourages drinking and driving? How many lives have been cut short by indiscretions in traffic? Because of cell phone use behind the wheel? But, who instigates curiosity in a person to look at their smartphone while driving?

How many deaths have been caused by drugs? But, who encourages people to use drugs? How many homes have been destroyed by unclean spirits who cause a husband to turn against his wife and vice versa? How many innocent lives have been cut short by “stray bullets”?

Think of the countless professionals without the Mind of Christ, and that because of this, have been easily influenced by the thoughts of evil spirits to kill, steal and destroy lives! This is when many medical mistakes and premature death arise; the bad and dishonest politicians support social injustice in the public health system, education, security, etc.

Entities from hell have possessed the minds of people who are selfish, incredulous, void of the Mind of Christ and are therefore weak and susceptible to all sorts of diabolical ideas.

As for you, my son Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a loyal heart and with a WILLING MIND; for the Lord searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever.                I Chronicles 28.9

Who has a major influence on your mind, The Lord Jesus or satan?

Think about the last question meticulously. God Bless You

The Path Of Doubts

Dont-be-a-statistic

Allo Mate! How U Doing Reader? Here’s A Quick Message Of Encouragement…

DON’T ALLOW DOUBTS FROM THE devil TO MAKE YOU NOT BELIEVE IN GOD’S WORD, TAKE ACTIONS!

If you choose to live your live, following the path of doubts (the devil) it will always lead to the same destination, DISAPPOINTMENT! You must discipline yourself to resist the negative thoughts and the doubts. I know it is easier said than done but it is possible.

Get into the habit and lifestyle of living by following you faith in the Word of God. Following the positive thought and ignore the negative thoughts. 

Choose to live by faith regardless of what the situation may be and regardless of how you may feel, because the heart is the center of feeling and in the Words of God calls it, DECEITFUL ABOVE ALL THINGS (Jeremiah 17:9 NKJV).
God is FAITH/ASSURANCE/CERTAINTY if you want to be filled by God, receive His favour and blessings, daily you must live by faith. When you live by faith, you conquer the everlasting blessings and the earthly blessing as well.

When we live by faith, we are pleasing God:

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 NKJV

BELIEVE! God Bless =]
