The Holy Spirit is God. He is not an “it.” He is not a divine influence. He is not a fleecy white cloud. He is not a ghost or a concept. He is not a fire; He is not a wind. He is not oil or a dove. He is a person possessing a will, intellect and emotions. He is God with all the attributes of deity.
He is the third person of the Trinity. He is co-equal with God the Father and God the Son. There is only one God, but He manifests Himself in three persons, whom we call the Trinity. The trinity is the same in identity, but different functions.
The Holy Spirit came to enable you to know Christ through a new birth reality and to give you the power to live and share the abundant life which Jesus promised to all who trust and obey Him. The Holy Spirit came to glorify Christ and to lead believers into all truth. He is the one that proceeds from the Father and bears witness in our hearts that we are His children.
He must start His work inside of you first because everything in Life starts from the Spirit, from the inside out. This requires a child-like faith. Just accept the gift and begin to enjoy the out workings of God’s Spirit in you.To receive this outpouring and the infilling of the spirit, there must be an unusual hunger, passion and drive in your heart. You must empty yourself from within. Never reach the point of being content with what you have until you receive this outpouring.
First, The Holy Spirit will fill you inwardly and then the power will fall on you outwardly, then you will miraculously receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence to speak strange and unknown prayer language and henceforth you possess the abilities both to LIVE for God and also SERVE Him.
HOW YOU CAN BE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT NOW [15 Minutes]
(Get A Bible and Read Acts 1:8, Acts 2:1-4, 1Corinthians 14:2-4, Ephesians 6:18 and Jude 1:20) PLEASE READ IT WELL AND STUDY IT CAREFULLY, IT IS A MUST.
STEP 1: Make sure you are in a private place, acknowledge and confess your sins [if you have any], Ask Jesus to cleanse your spirit, soul and body with His Blood and His Word. Then believe you are NOW a new creation, and your sins are forgiven, you don’t need to feel. Salvation is by faith alone, not by feeling. [5minutes]
STEP 2: Spend quality time by asking The Holy Spirit to fill you NOW, Be more serious with it by paying full attention. Lock your door, close your eyes and lift up your hands towards heaven and never be distracted. [5minutes]
STEP 3: Then begin to speak forth and pray in other tongues by faith NOW. You begin say it louder and faster as you can. Spend time saying it. Don’t doubt, don’t quit, don’t be distracted, fix your mind. The more you say it out, the more the Spirit releases Himself to you and the more clearer the utterance becomes. [5minutes]
MAINTAINING A SPIRIT FILLED – LIFE
The Infilling of the Holy Spirit is God’s great gift to us, but maintaining a Spirit – filled life is another greater dimension of God’s reality we must awake to. Many believers who have received the baptism of the Holy Spirit still find it difficult to know God’s will for them in some certain areas.
Ephesians 5: 18 … And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but BE FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT. The Greek words for “Be filled with the Spirit” as explained by Greek Bible Scholars in the verse above connotes that “Be BEING filled with the Holy Spirit”
In other words, we are to maintain a constant experience of BEING (a present continuous tense reality) filled with the Holy Spirit. The will of God for the New Creation in Christ is that we experience the overflowing measure of the Holy Spirit.
God wants you to fan the fire into flame, He wants you to maintain the glow and be fervent in the Spirit. You put this into action by spending much time in the studying of The Word and also praying more often in other tongues.
The more time you spent speaking and praying with your prayer language, the more divers and various kinds of new tongues will be made available to you by the Spirit. This is God’s ultimate plan for you. This is one major secret of Christian growth and ever increasing faith lifestyle. Jude 2: 20. As you make up your mind to create time for fellowship with the Holy Spirit, He is ready to teach you and grant you comprehension beyond this realm.
