Category: Holy Ghost and Power

The power to excel and thread on the serpent. The Bible is filled with examples of God’s anointing— a supernatural power from on high—on people. Anyone who studies these examples is naturally filled with a desire for such an anointing.

There will be lots of changes in our life experiences if we choose to pray rather than complaining. Most people tend to grumble on many things. There could be many things that bother our minds at home, in the school or workplaces and in the society that may tempt us to murmur.

When God’s fullness arrives, everyone will know it: “And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit” (Joel 2:29). When the former and the latter rains descend, it will turn into a flood. Those who receive it will be used mightily as the anointing flows upon those all around.

outpouring

Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and will not do you evil.” (Joel 2:12-13)

Thus the great forbearance of God is to lead sinners to repentance. He waits for them for days and for months and perhaps for years! How wonderful that God should spare them. He sent his ministers, his written word, his providences, and to no effect. Finally, he came himself by his own Spirit and has been abused by them in a thousand ways. And even now perhaps you are still indulging in unbelief which is a sin that grieves him almost beyond endurance. If you persist you do it at the peril of your soul.

It is very common to see persons racking their ingenuity to find excuses for their sins. Some are pleading inability to do any better than they do. Others plead their peculiar circumstances, and others still their dependence on the Spirit of God. In short, there is scarcely any plea to which a proud heart can resort to evade the force of truth, which is not resorted to by many, to appease their consciences, and get away from breaking down their hearts before the Lord.

The Lord God is sovereign, who does according to his will and in the Scripture, there has been no one, who is able to resist the will of God (Rom 9:19). Thus every word of the Lord is established and none of the word that goes forth from His mouth; shall return to him void, But it shall accomplish what God pleases, and it shall prosper in the thing for which God sent it (Isaiah 55:11).

There are sins that the Lord hates because they grieve the Spirit of God. Those sins might be seen as little things in the eyes of men or a normal daily scenario but God sees them as an abomination.

Whatever appears as an opposition to the working of the Spirit in the life of man is seen as striving with the Spirit. The flesh and the carnal lifestyle are in opposition to the Spirit and thus strives with the Holy Spirit (Gal. 5:17).

The Holy Spirit is a moral agent, and consequently, he has the susceptibilities and feelings of a moral being, and must therefore be grieved with whatever is naturally grievous to a moral being.

God in us

If a man has the real witness of the Holy Spirit in himself, he will know it and also be able to distinguish it from presumption. It will be clear to him as the light of the day and obvious like the light of a star.

The Holy Scriptures are full of evidence that distinguished the real testimony of the Spirit with our spirit, from damning presumption. We are not left in ignorance of the circumstances which go before, which accompany, and which follow, the true, genuine testimony of the Spirit of God with the spirit of a believer.

The spiritwitness

Understanding or hearing the voice of the Spirit could sometimes be confusing to human comprehension. How often have many vain men mistaken the voice of their own imagination for this witness of the Spirit of God, and thence idly presumed they were the children of God while they were doing the works of the devil!

The time for revival

We need a work of the Holy Spirit of a supernatural kind, putting power into the preaching of the Word, inspiring all believers with heavenly energy, and solemnly affecting the hearts of the careless, so that they turn to God and live. We should not be drunk with the wine of carnal excitement but be filled with the Spirit. We would behold the fire descending from heaven in answer to the effectual fervent prayers of righteous men. Let us entreat the Lord our God to make bare His holy Old-fashioned Doctrine

the divine touch

Get closer to God. Ask for His oil from heaven. Seek the double-portion anointing. Be bold as you prepare to see unprecedented glory just ahead, for our precious Lord Jesus Christ has promised it.
