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!

Good Fruit

“Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit. John 15:2
Your faith is like a tree, the word of God is like a seed, when you accept Gods word for truth and learn and grow from it, you grow stronger in your faith.

Jesus said we would know false prophets “By their fruits” (Matthew 7:16) if we don’t produce “Good fruit” then eventually God will cut us off (John 15:2), so what is Good Fruit? Lets look at the Fruits of The Holy Spirit

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. (Galations 5:22-23)
If your actions don’t match those qualities of the ones above, then your actions are not from God but from the flesh. Its important we remain lead by The Holy Spirit and not by our own flesh.

Second God says “We will be pruned so we can bear more fruit “ (John 15:2) Some might wonder as a Christian, why would God allow you to suffer? Sometimes our pain and suffering is to prepare us and grow us “Good Fruit”

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. (James 1:2-3)

Don’t be misled by the fake “American” “Prosperity” Gospel, for anyone who loves this world and things of it, God is not in them (1 John 2:15) As a Christian there will be trials and tribulation, but know in the end we have the ultimate victory by the Blood of Christ in Jesus Name Amen!

Like A Dove

And the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.” Luke 3:22

Why did the Holy Spirit descend in the form of a dove? Was this a prophetic sign from God?

In Hebrew the meaning of the name Jonah is Dove. There was a reason the Spirit came down in the form of a dove, it was a prophetic sign from our Heavenly Father about the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth Matthew 12:40

Jesus prophesied about this later also in his ministry. He mentions Jonah who spent 3 days and 3 nights in the belly of the whale. Jesus was prophesying about his death and spending 3 days and 3 nights in the heart of The Earth. Just as Jonah rised out of the whale after 3 days and saved Nineveh, Jesus rose from the grave and conquered death and sin.

Just as the dove left Noahs Ark and returned to send the message that the world has been saved (Genesis 8:11) Jesus has saved the world from our sins, look for the signs from our Heavenly Father in Jesus Name Amen

What Spirit are You?

And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, will you that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elijah did? Luke 9:54

With all the evil in the world, sometimes we feel like the disciples did. When people reject Jesus or even blasphemy his name, its normal to feel some anger. However, we learn from this event that Jesus doesn’t want us to be looking for judgement but to share the mercy of God through Jesus Christ.

In this particular event, the Samaritans rejected Jesus and this obviously made his disciples angry. We see a lot of evil and sin in this world that makes us angry, how do we react? Are we condemning people or praying for them?

But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, You know not what manner of spirit you are of.For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to savethem. And they went to another village.
Luke 9:55-56

The disciples wanted God to consume the Samaritans with fire, like Elijah had done with the followers of Baal. Jesus rebuked them. So what was the difference? Well Jesus has brought a new covenant from God, filled with grace and mercy paid by his blood at the cross. Consuming sinners with fire would negate the reason Christ died for us.

This same covenant is still here today; God is still granting mercy to sinners through Jesus Christ. So as Christians our job is not to condemn sinners but to lead them to Jesus. Is this easy to do? No, of course not but we must not be a roadblock to someone’s salvation.

As Jesus said to the disciples, what manner of Spirit are you? Are you lead by the Holy Spirit or are you lead by a false Spirit of Satan? You don’t need to save the world, we already have a God who has done that in Jesus name Amen

Spiritual Wisdom

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people and his incomparably great power for us who believe. Ephesians 1:18

The gift of Spiritual Wisdom is one of the 7 gifts giving to us by The Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12) Can we truly know God and understand Jesus without the guidance of the Spirit? I don’t believe so

Without the Holy Spirit The Bible couldn’t have been written for it tells us in (2 Timothy 3:16) All scripture is God breathed. The original Hebrew word for breathe was “ruach” means spirit.

Jesus said anyone who blasphemies against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven (Mark 3:29)  I think it shows you the importance and seriousness of The Holy Spirit


That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. Ephesians 1:19-21

The same power that rose Jesus from the grave is living inside of us (Romans 8:11) That’s the Holy Spirit living inside of you, the Power of God. I know I use this scripture a lot but I think its important to understand and believe this.

Notice the end of this scripture it tells us Jesus is not only King now but he will be the King forever. The Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. He’s sitting on the throne right now awaiting the appropriate time to restore Gods Kingdom and rule with a rod of iron

And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way. Ephesians 1:22-23

Jesus is the God Head of The Church, the cornerstone. No man or government has authority to change his Word or ways. As Jesus is the same today, yesterday and forever. Any church that changes Gods laws is blasphemy and a false religion.

Don’t get misled by false doctrine, Jesus is the Truth and the only Truth. He taught us in John 14 he would send his “Spirit of Truth” which is the Holy Spirit to guide us. Tell the Holy Spirit you are welcomed here in Jesus Name Amen

God Lives In You

You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. Romans 8:9

If you truly are a Christian then the Holy Spirit lives in you. The same Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead, is the same powerful Spirit that lives in you. God said he won’t leave us or forsake and he doesn’t thru the power of the Holy Spirit.

But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness.  Romans 8:10

Make no mistake about it, you are still mortal due to the sin of Adam. The time will come when your body will fail you, however because of the redemption of Jesus, you will be risen from the dead just as Jesus was.

And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. Romans 8:11

The Spirit of God is living in you and will give you eternal life thru the atonement of Jesus Christ. Jesus defeated death on the cross and crushed the head of the serpent. The grave can hold you no longer.

However to receive the power of the Holy Spirit, you must accept and confess Jesus as your Lord and Savior. You must also confess and repent your sins, for we are all sinners and have fallen short to the Glory of God.

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

Whoever believes in him should not perish, I promise from God your creator. Everlasting life can be yours, follow Jesus he is the truth, the light, and the way Amen

Spirit of God

And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. Romans 8:11

The Power of God that raised Jesus Christ from the dead, can also be living in you by the Holy Spirit.   How do you view yourself? Defeated or Victorious? Weak or Strong? Cursed or Blessed? What if I told you God wants to fill you also  with this powerful life force?

Satan wants you to live in fear, but fear doesn’t exist when the Spirit of God lives in you. For this same spirit healed the sick, cast out demons, and our greatest victory raised Jesus Christ from the dead

(2 Timothy 1:7) “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

Satan wants to control you with fear, but fear does not come from God. Fear is a method used for control, think about how Satan controls lives thru addictions, diseases, abuse, and death.

But the Spirit of God thru the blood of Jesus Christ breaks those chains. With God there is nothing to fear but The Lord himself, for he is the Almighty Creator, the beginning and the end.

(Isaiah 11:2) “And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;”

This scripture Isaiah prophesized about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Notice he mentions several times the Spirit of God is filled in Jesus. It’s only thru the Holy Spirit that we gain wisdom, understanding, healing, and become renewed.

We can also be filled with the Spirit of God, accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, pray without ceasing, develop a relationship with our living God.

(Matthew 3:16) “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:”

The same Spirit of God that descended from Jesus can be alive in you also, many people put limitations on God, but all things are possible with God.

What issues are you faced with today? Are you facing them defeated? Or maybe your not even confronting them at all, stand tall and know that the most power force in the world lives inside you, you can do all thins thru Christ who gives you strength in Jesus name Amen
