Holy Spirit

John 14:16-17 (AMP)
And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby), that He may remain with you forever
17 The Spirit of Truth, Whom the world cannot receive (welcome, take to its heart), because it does not see Him or know and recognize Him. But you know and recognize Him, for He lives with you [constantly] and will be in you.

Many Christians read the above Scripture with a ‘that’s nice’ attitude. We have so little respect for what Jesus is saying here! We just don’t get it. Holy Spirit.
It is time for the Holy Spirit to “come out of the closet”. Most Christians have  limited knowledge and experience of and with Him, and He is so powerful! As Jesus is a person, so too is Holy Spirit; He is God.

A great intercessor, Rees Howells, related what the Holy Spirit said to him:
"As the Savior had a body, so I dwell in the cleansed temple of the believer. I am a Person. I am God, and I am come to ask you to give your body to Me that I may work through it. I need a body for My temple (1 Corinthians 6:19 AMP). but it must belong to Me without reserve, for two persons with different wills can never live in the same body. Will you give me yours?(Romans 12:1 AMP)But if I come in, I come as God, and you must go out. (Colossians 3:2-3 AMP)  I shall not mix Myself with your self."

Does this sound rather harsh to you? Holy Spirit wants to kick you out of your body? . . . Or does He want the things of the world, the sin parts, the negative things that are a part of you to be kicked out? God cannot live with sin, anymore than fire can live next to paper; it would  burn up. So sinful things must go.

Righteousness is not perfection, it is desiring to be always in right standing with God. We choose to live a righteous life and to submit our will to the will of the Holy Spirit. The next choice is to allow Him to indwell us and do His work in us. Then His Holy Spirit power will work for us and in us. . . an exciting life is the result!

He said in my spirit: I love you totally and completely. Once I indwell your cleansed body, I will always be with you to walk through every storm, to face down every enemy. I am your Rear Guard, your Advocate, your Guide, your Protector, and your Helper in every difficulty. When you invite me in, know that I come to fill you with My life, to live My life in your body. (1 Corinthians 6:19) I expect your worldly life to leave. I ask you to sacrifice your body to me ~ allow me to use your body for my work. (Romans 12:1) I am God and I will bless you with more than you can imagine when I indwell you.

With time hurtling through our lives so hastily now, we truly need to find what purpose God has for our existence here and now. Use time to achieve what God has designed for our lives, for He most definitely has a plan. it is Holy Spirit Who helps us see the plan, and we know from Jeremiah 29:11 it is a good one for us. If you feel like you are wondering aimlessly though space and time without direction, now is the hour to stop and pray. Ask God to open your eyes to see His purpose for you. Ask Him to open your ears to hear, and then listen.

Grab on to His truth and do not let it fly past. Seek God’s heart; seek an intimate relationship with Him. Make knowing Him your foremost desire, and He will take you to a depth you have never before known. Just make knowing Him your top priority!

There is no greater experience in life than having this close relationship with your God. It will fill your life and leave no emptiness. It is Holy Spirit who will guide you to, in, and through this lifetime journey.
