The Holy Spirit

If I didn’t carry a great destiny, the devil wouldn’t be bothered with me.

If there wasn’t a great testimony for me in the future, I would have a non-eventful life. Remember, an unfruitful tree doesn’t suffer pushing, plucking and stone throwing. I am carrying solutions. I am carrying greatness. Get behind me Satan. You lost a very long time ago when Jesus rose from the dead!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

(2 Corinthians 13: 14)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Holy Spirit is often the most ignored person in the Church.

During a church service how often do you hear the Holy Spirit being mentioned in prayers, hymns or sermons?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And now, behold, I am going to Jerusalem, constrained by the Spirit, not knowing what will happen to be there, except that the Holy Spirit testifies to me in every city that imprisonment and afflictions await me.

(Acts 20: 22-23)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For it has seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us to lay on you no greater burden than these requirements, that you abstain from what has been sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from what has been strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these you will do well.

(Acts 15: 28-29)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Holy Spirit loves people talking about Him and to Him.

Think about it this way. If you knew someone was ever present in your life but you never talked to them and never shared your life with them, you would soon grow distant from them.

And so it is with the Holy Spirit. If you do not talk with Him, or share things with Him, He is not going to respond to you.

But if, on the other hand, you talk to the Holy Spirit every day and ask Him whenever you need His help or guidance He will amaze you by answering your prayers and requests.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Jesus refers to the Holy Spirit 19 times in John 14/15 and 16

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. 

And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.

Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

(Ephesians 4: 29-31)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And whoever speaks a word against the son of man will be forgiven, but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.

(Matthew 12: 32)

With many peaceful blessings

Geoffrey
