Engaging The Power Of The Holy Spirit

8

How do you interact with the Holy Spirit after being baptized with the Holy Spirit ? To be baptized with the Holy Spirit, you will personally desire to be baptized with the HOLY SPIRIT though Jesus was born of the Holy Spirit with regards to His biological conception thus "And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. 31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. 34 Then said Mary unto the angel, HOW SHALL THIS BE, seeing I know not a man? 35 And the angel answered and said unto her, THE HOLY SPIRIT SHALL COMPE UPON THEE AND THE POWER OF THE HIGHEST SHALL OVERSHADOW THEE: THEREFORE ALSO THAT HOLY THING WHICH SHALL BE BORN OF THEE SHALL BE CALLED THE SON OF GOD" (Luke 1:30-35 kjv) yet Jesus desired and made the move towards john the baptist at the river jordan to be baptized with water and the Holy Spirit "Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. 14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? 15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. 16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: 17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." (Matthew 3:13-17 kjv) when a human being sincerely desires to have a genuine relationship with the true living God by hearing the gospel and believing in Jesus death on the Cross and His resurrection, the Holy Spirit can baptize you even before the water baptism as the case of Cornelius and his household in Acts of the Apostles chapter 10. then the water baptism comes later. After the Holy Spirit baptism, the next important thing is to recognize that HE HAS NOW COME INTO YOUR LIFE, removed the *old-man/flesh* by grace through faith in Jesus death and His resurrection then replaced *our old-nature/flesh* with the FULL PERSON/LIFE OF JESUS CHRIST CRUCIFIED whom He controls to submit and manifest the perfect-will of God the Father in all things both in the secret-thoughts and external behaviors just like Jesus earthly days of 33-years hence IT IS NO LONGER BUSINESS AS USUAL Before you engage in anything, you ask THE HOLY SPIRIT; MY LORD/MY OWNER/MY CONTROLLER, WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO THROUGH THE LIFE OF JESUS NOW LIVING IN THIS MY MORTAL-BODY NOW ? HOLY SPIRIT MY LORD, what would you have me do in this situation ? When you open the holy bible to read, you ask HIM; "Holy Spirit, My Lord; what did you want me to understand when you wrote/said 'For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.' (John 3:16 kjv) Because you believe this word "when the Holy Spirit comes, He will teach you ALL THINGS" AND Because He is the SPIRIT that prompted men to write the words contained in the HOLY BIBLE thus "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but HOLY MEN OF GOD spake as they were MOVED by the HOLY SPIRIT." (2 Peter 1:20-21 kjv) when you now want to pray, it is no longer *following the prayer patterns as you were taught by any religion or doctrine or denomination* but "HOLY SPIRIT, now that YOU HAVE COME AS A PERMANENT RESIDENT WITHIN MY MORTAL-BODY; PLEASE HELP ME TO PRAY because You taught me that I do no know how-long to pray, what to pray and the utterance to use in prayers but you will help my infirmities to pray for me and any other believers(the saints) in groans and utterances acceptable to the perfect-will of the Father, PLEASE HOLY SPIRIT QUICKEN AND HELP ME TO PRAY ACCORDING TO THE PERFECT-WILL OF THE FATHER THROUGH THE PERSONALITY OF CHRIST JESUS CRUCIFIED WHO IS NOW THE LIFE EXPRESSING HIMSELF THROUGH MY MORTAL-BODY TO THE GLORY OF THE FATHER..." (Romans 8:26-27, Psalm 80:18, 1 John 5:14) As it concerns every plan, schedule, educations, business, jobs, careers, relationships, habits, desires, friendships, travels, dreams, passions, fantasies, aspirations, ambitions e.t.c. that I used to be involved with before the HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM, I will now submit them to HIM; ASKING HIM; LORD DO YOU WANT TO CONTINUE WITH ANY OF THESE PREVIOUS THINGS NOW THAT YOU HAVE COME.... "Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come." (John 16:13 kjv) He will give you definite answers of YES OR NO OR SILENCE; Any answer that He gives to you, ask HIM FOR HIS MERCY AND GRACE to submit to THE CHRIST LIFE WITHIN YOU TO OBEY AND MANIFEST THEM IMMEDIATELY AND EFFORTLESSLY. Acknowledging HIM and asking FOR HIS PERMISSION/CHOICE in ALL THINGS whether secret-thoughts or external behaviors/activities/decisions is what it means to *engage HIS PRESENCE, POWER, PERSONALITY, ANOINTING in OUR LIVES* and the TRUE MEANING OF A FULFILLED HUMAN EXISTENCE. HOLY SPIRIT, NOW THAT YOU HAVE COME, please reveal to me what is sin, righteousness and judgement as you wrote in this passage "Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 Of sin, because they believe not on me; 10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; 11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. 12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. 13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come." (John 16:7-13 kjv) The HOLY SPIRIT will never *neglect any of your discussion or questions or interactions with HIM* THE HOLY SPIRIT is more closer to us than OUR HUMAN SKIN THE HOLY SPIRIT is MORE REAL than anything we can see, think or imagine THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE SPIRIT OF GOD THE FATHER AND THE SON THE HOLY SPIRIT IS A PERSON AND AT THE SAMETIME; THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE PERSON OF GOD THE FATHER AND GOD THE SON; YET THESE 3-PERSONS IS 1-GOD. THE HOLY SPIRIT is OUR PERMANENT RESIDENT TEACHER who even reveals scriptures that we have never read to us and uses it to solve any issues or circumstances that concerns our life in all spheres of human existence namely academics, health, politics, ICT, industries e.t.c. whenever we live our lives without acknowledging HIM, we are grieving HIM, we are making HIM NOT TO BE ACTIVE IN OUR LIVES and we are hurting ourselves, degrading ourselves and operating outside HIS mercy, love, grace, protection and provisions as well as inflicting ourselves with HIS WRATH. The HOLY SPIRIT BAPTIZES US WITH THE REVELATION OF THE PERSON OF THE SON OF GOD; JESUS CHRIST CRUCIFIED ALONE. The HOLY SPIRIT POWER is not for *manifestation of our own drama, arbitrary demonstrations or personal credence* but to infuse our hearts with *compassion for the salvation of every human being through faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ Crucified* thus "But ye shall RECEIVE POWER, after that the HOLY SPIRIT is COME UPON YOU: and YE shall be WITNESSES unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." (Acts. 1:8 kjv) you might have received water baptism but you might not have received the Holy Spirit baptism: Have you come under strong conviction in your heart with or without preaching about your personal sins, the old-nature/flesh every human being received from Adam's disobedience ? Have you come to appreciate GOD so much about His love for you and for all human being by offering HIS SINLESS SON; JESUS CHRIST TO PAY FOR OUR ETERNAL DAMNATION ON THE CROSS OF CALVARY ? Have you come under the strong conviction to *communicate this love of God to every human being in this universe whether they are believers or unbelievers so that every one of them will hear-afresh, get convicted by the Holy Spirit, repent and receive salvation by grace through faith in Jesus* whether online or offline through the unadulterated gospel of Jesus Christ Crucified ? Have you come under a strong conviction to deny yourself any pleasure, ambition, relationships, careers, or desire just to *obey the perfect-will of Christ now living in your mortal-body* immediately ? Have you come under a strong conviction to love righteousness by faith in Jesus Christ Crucified to the uttermost and hate sin or any appearances of sin to the uttermost ? Have you come under a strong conviction in your heart to love the general body of Christ (the church) on earth without denominational-sentiments ? Do you manifest the fruits of the Holy Spirit according to Galatians 5:22-23 ? If you have not received the Holy Spirit baptism, desire and ask Jesus to baptize you with His Holy Spirit and Fire sincerely from now "I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: HE shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:" (Matthew 3:11 kjv) "For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence." (Acts 1:5 kjv) "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. 7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil. 8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones." (Proverbs 3:5-8 kjv) "For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God." (Romans 8:14 kjv) "Now may the God of peace [Who is the Author and the Giver of peace], Who brought again from among the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood [that sealed, ratified] the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament), 21 Strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will; [while He Himself] works in you and accomplishes that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ (the Messiah); to Whom be the glory forever and ever (to the ages of the ages). Amen (so be it)." (Hebrews 13:20-21 ampc)
