Experience The Holy Spirit The Father’s Glory
Every Christian needs to experience the Holy Spirit. The indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit in you as a Christians should be your greatest desire and experience. This is because He is the best gift from our Father to us. Nothing on earth can compare to the person of the Holy Spirit. He is the promise and the glory of the Father and our glory. What a precious gift the Holy Spirit is.
I know people have different experiences in life but no experience can be great and as sweet as one experiencing the Holy Ghost, Holy Ghost is Holy Spirit. Spirit means ghost. This person of the Godhead is so sweet and wonderful. Holy Spirit my Father, Comforter, Helper, Strengthener, Standby, Advocate, Intercessor. I just can’t imagine my life without Him. He is the Holy Ghost, and His abiding presence in me has completely changed my life, my world and my mindset. This is the Person we all need to experience and keep experiencing everyday.
The Infilling Of The Holy Spirit
“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you…” (Acts 1:8).
The greatest experience anyone could ever have is the infilling of the Holy Spirit. Nothing in the world compares to the Holy Ghost taking up His abode in you, making your body His living tabernacle twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, fifty-two weeks of the year, three hundred and sixty-five days in a year, and three hundred and sixty-six days on leap year.
In John 14:23, Jesus said, “…If a man loves me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” This blessing is for the one who loves the Lord and keeps His Word. Jesus and the Father will set up their headquarters in him! It’s by the Holy Ghost. That’s when you experience His glorious manifestations and operations in your life.
Holy Spirit In You Is The Kingdom of God In You
Having received the Holy Ghost, you carry the Kingdom in you. When you arrive in a place, the Kingdom arrives in you! You’ve become the carrier, as well as a dispenser, of eternal verities. What a life! Prayer, for you, isn’t a religious monologue, but a time of fellowship in the communion of the God-kind. When you pray, even your body responds, currents of divine power surge through your being!
Until you received the Holy Ghost, that never happened! O, when the Holy Spirit fills your life! Recall what happened to the Apostles on the day of Pentecost. The Bible says “…they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting” (Acts 2:1-2).
Afterwards, they became spirit-controlled men and women, preaching the Gospel with power, miracles, signs and wonders.
Honor The Holy Spirit; He’s So Nice
As a child of God, you are the home of God, the tabernacle of the Holy Ghost. Understand this, you are the person in whom the Holy Spirit dwells, honor the Holy Spirit. Honor Him and appreciate His presence and ministry in your life. He’s the One who gives you the power to live for the Master. Your offerings and service to God are not even acceptable to Him except they are presented through the Holy Ghost. (Romans 15:16; Hebrews 9:4).
That I might be a minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering of the Gentiles might be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:16 NKJV
Every Christian Should Be Filled With The Holy Ghost
You need to be filled with all the fullness of God, this is possible only when you are filled with the Holy Spirit. There are Christians who don’t know how important the Holy Spirit is to every born again Christian. Receiving and the infilling of the Holy Spirit is not optional for the Christians. Holy Spirit is a must have for us who are born again. He is the only One every Christians should desire and love, because no success without Him. Holy Spirit is the closest Person to God’s children.
It would be too dangerous for any Christian to think he doesn’t need the Holy Spirit. Living without Him is suicidal and disastrous. Every Child of God should be filled with the Holy Spirit. Becoming born again is not enough, you must be filled with the Holy Spirit. Everyone who is born again has the divine life of God in him on her. When you receive the Holy Spirit, it is God coming in all His fullness to dwell, that is, tabernacle in you to carry out His ministry in you and through you.
A christian without the Holy Spirit is limited
How and why should a Christian think or imagine that he can do anything without the Holy Spirit?. The only reason why many people, Christians inclusive is because they are living their lives everyday without the Holy Spirit. There are people who have received Him but have never been conscious of His indwelling presence. The live everyday without thinking about Him nor talk to Him, He is completely a strange person to them. When you are filled with the Holy Spirit, you become limitless because He becomes your teacher teaching you all truth. God anoints all His children to know the truth by giving us the Holy Spirit to live in us.
Living without Him or living without the consciousness of the Holy Spirit with and in you will limit you in life. It will also limit your progress, advancement, promotion, and many other thing.
I want you to know that the Holy Spirit is the only aura of favour.
Having the Holy Spirit filling you up and tabernacling in you is a greater experience than salvation. This is why we must all be filled with Him, the Holy Spirit.
How To Receive The Holy Spirit
As a child of God, understand that the Holy Spirit is the Father’s gift to all His children.
And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
(Luke 11:9-13 KJV)
How do you receive the Holy Ghost? You can receive the Holy Spirit by asking asking the Holy Ghost to come and live in you. Recognise Him as the Father’s greatest blessing to you, acknowledge Him and ask Him to come and make His abode in you. After you ask Him to come and make His abode in you, begin to appreciate God for His gift. This is the simplest way to receive the Holy Ghost. You can also receive Him by having hands laid on you but I don’t recommend this method except you know very well the person laying hands on you. This is important so that you won’t receive a different spirit ignorantly.
Receive The Holy Spirit Now
If you have not been filled with the Holy Spirit and wants to be full of Him now, pray with me. Father, I thank You for the gift and the blessing of the Holy Spirit. I ask the Holy Spirit to come into my heart and make His abode in me from today. I receive You now precious Holy Ghost, fill me up and remain in me from today and forever. Thank You Father for filling me with the Holy Spirit. Hallelujah! I am filled with the Holy Ghost. You can go on and speak in tongue as the Spirit gives you utterance. Open your mouth now and begin to speak in tongue.
