Spirit of Truth

The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. 1 Corinthians 2:14

How can we understand God? How can we comprehend the One who created time, space, and matter? How can we explain The Creator who spoke the Heavens and The Earth into existence? There is only one who can help us understand, and it’s the Holy Spirit

As Paul explains here somebody who if not filled with the Holy Spirit will obviously never accept God because they don’t have the understanding that only the Holy Spirit can give us

the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. John 14:17

Jesus revealed the Holy Spirit would be coming to his disciples. And notice he describes him as the “Spirit of Truth”. The Holy Spirit reveals the mysteries of God to us, if we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. The Holy Spirit will live inside us , to guide, comfort, and teach us.

Does all the wisdom and understanding happen overnight? No,  but you allow the Holy Spirit to mold you into who God has designed you to be, you will see a transformation over time.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; Proverbs 3:5

None of this is possible though without Jesus Christ, once you are redeemed by the blood of Christ, then you will become baptized by The Holy Spirit in Jesus Name Amen!

Poured Out

“‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.  Acts 2:17-18

Are you filled with The Holy Spirit? The prophet Joel foretold about the coming of The Holy Spirit 800 years before the day of Pentecost. The day of Pentecost was the great day promised by Jesus, that God would send his Holy Spirit and pour it out upon everyone (Acts 1:4)

But make no mistake about it, the Holy Spirit is still with us today and God wants to pour him upon you. As the prophecy is foretold, the Holy Spirit is not limited to anyone, men and women, young and old. If you receive Christ as your Lord and Savior you will be baptized by the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:11)

Jesus taught us about the Holy Spirit as the comforter, the advocate, and helper. (John 14:16) Paul teaches us about the gifts (wisdom, knowledge,faith,healing,miracles, distinguish Spirits, prophecy,tounges)   of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians) and the fruits (love, joy,peace,patience,kindness,goodness,faithfulness, gentleness, and self control) of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22) God wants to fill you up with the Holy Spirit, are you willing to receive him?

Don’t fight the good fight unequipped. We are fighting a Spiritual Warfare and Satan is looking to devour us like a Lion. But we have the same power that rose Christ from the dead living inside of us (Romans 8:11) let God fill you up with his power in Jesus Name Amen

Peace and Strength

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13

Where do you get your inner strength from? Where do you get inner peace? There comes a time for all of us, when we realize we can’t do it on our own. That the world gets too hard for us to overcome by our self. But the good news is we have a Savior (Matthew 1:21), his name is Jesus

We can overcome the world because Jesus has already overcome the world (John 16:33), because greater is he living inside of us than he that is living in the world (1 John 4:4) There is no greater power or force in this world than the power of Jesus Christ, who can break every chain (Psalm 107:14) and make the crooked path straight (Luke 3:5)

Jesus is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6) through him you can have the peace of God in your heart (Philippians 4:7) Just as the angels declared when Jesus was born, Jesus brought good will and peace on Earth (Luke 2:14) Even though the world is in chaos around us, we can have the Peace of Christ inside us

Those who hope in Jesus will renew their strength, they will soar on wings like Eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint (Isaiah 40:31) Are you looking for this Peace and Strength today? Look no further than Jesus Christ, ask him into your heart and be filled with the Holy Spirit Amen


Peace of God

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6

So are you having a bad day today? Worried about your family? Worried about your bills? Maybe worried about your health? Whatever it may be, God is saying Don’t be anxious about “anything”

Right now that may seem impossible, but if in every situation we pray to God about our concerns, he will give us peace. We can spend lots of time “spinning our wheels” trying to come up with our own solution, when God has a simple solution for us, pray. Cast your cares to him

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7

And when you display your faith, and cast all your cares to God, he will bring you peace. Isn’t that something we all need right now? All the Holy Spirit will guard your heart and mind, from the chaos that’s going on right now.

A lot of times Satan is playing mind games with us, making us believe the problem is impossible or bigger than what it really is. When you leave it up to God he will give you the peace of Christ.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things. Philippians 4:8

Finally focus on the good things in life, not the bad things. There are always going to be problems, but we have been blessed already. Thanks God for your spouse, your children, your job, your home, your health, whatever you have been provided for. Don’t let a bad day bring you down, let the blessings from God bring you back up in Jesus Name Amen

Comfort of Christ

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me.” John 14:1

Jesus is preparing his disciples for his departure; he’s telling them just because he’s not living here on Earth anymore he’s alive in Heaven waiting for them.

This is great comfort, not only knowing that Jesus is alive and waiting for us but also  Jesus reveals a little about Heaven and what we can expect on our journey there.

My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? John 14:2

Jesus is telling us Heaven has plenty of room for us; you won’t be turned away by lack of vacancy. Jesus promised to his followers he is going to prepare a place for you, question is are you one of his followers?

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. John 14:3

Not only has Jesus giving us eternal life, promised to prepare a place for us in Heaven, but also he promises to come get you on that day to your Heavenly destination.

God has promised to never leave us or forsake us and he is holding on to that promise. When you leave this Earth , Jesus is coming for you, just as he promised.

“You know the way to the place where I am going. Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way? Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:4-6

Do you know the way to Heaven? If your not sure don’t feel bad because Jesus disciples were not sure. But Jesus clarifies it that he is the only way to Heaven. We are not worthy to stand before God without being washed in the blood of Jesus.

If you lost a loved one or are worried about the future, take comfort in the words of Jesus. He has laid down his life for you and he has prepared a place for you, trust in Jesus and don’t let your heart be troubled anymore Amen
