December 16, How to Receive the Holy Spirit


How much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
—Luke 11:13
Here is how to receive [the Holy Spirit]. First, present your body to Him (Romans 12:1-2). God can’t fill what He can’t have….Are you ready to present…your mind, your personality, your spirit, your love, your ambitions, your all? That is the first thing….
Now the second thing is to ask (Luke 11:9-11)….He could give [the Holy Spirit] without our asking, but He chooses to have us ask. “Ask of me, and I will give thee” is always God’s order; so why not ask?
Acts 5:32 tells us the third thing to do. God gives His Holy Spirit to them that obey Him. Are you ready to…do what you are asked to do…to live by the Scriptures as you understand them? Simple, but revolutionary.
The next thing is, have faith (Galatians 3:2). We receive Him by faith as we receive the Lord in salvation by faith. He comes as a gift of God to us in power. HTB047-048
The power to sin is one thing, the proneness to do so is another. Sanctification takes out the latter, but leaves the former, which is an attribute or necessity in a free moral agent. SAN041

    The Bible is the book of the knowledge of good and evil.

    The KJV must be rightly divided 2 Tim 2:15 God’s way Isa 28:9-10 with his spirit to understand the Bible.
    God chose a woman like unto Moses Deut 18:18, Num 12:3 to deliver Rev 12:5-6 the true word John 1:1, Acts 3:21-23 that proves the power of God Acts 26:18 as Elijah Matt 17:3, Luke 1:17.

    If you claim that you love God with all your heart, soul and mind then obey his word Matt 4:4 to prove all things and 1 Thes 5:20-2 despise not prophesyings.
    Our heavenly Father will not put any child of his into a hell fire no matter what their sins, whether they repent or not.

    It has not entered the heart or mind of God to ever do such a thing Jer7:31, Jer 19:5 to any child that he breathed the breath of life into.

    God only gives his Holy Spirit to those who obey him Acts 5:32. Only those who obey his word truly love him John 14:15, 23, Luke 6:46.

    If you are not keeping his commandments, food laws and Holydays his way then you do not truly love him Matt 25:12, Luke 13:23-28, 1 John 2:15.

    Search “The Good Tale” on the Internet to find the true Gospel that is delivered to the whole world as a witness Matt 24:14.
