John 3:34 For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit.
Today I’m going to be speaking about this bible verse that God gave me. Not many will like what I’m going to be speaking or writing about; however it’s necessary for us to dwell a little deeper in this section that many don’t even go there. Many churches, minister, worshipers and christian are passive in this. Many believe that the Holy Spirit is a being that is dormant in us; that his only function is to guide us and bring peace in our hearts during a difficult trial. And some believe that you are not supposed to have the Holy Spirit; that the Holy Spirit was only for the disciples and Israelite that were baptized after Jesus was resurrected.
Many american churches and non-american have taken the manifestation of the holy spirit from their churches because many believe that is not actually the Holy Spirit manifesting but the person is acting or it could be a demonic possession. In the bible it is written that after Jesus was baptized in the waters the Holy Spirit descended upon him.
As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him.
The word alight means to settle or stay in the dictionary. After his baptism in the waters he was guided by the Holy Spirit to the wilderness so he could fast for forty days and forty nights. He was tempted multiple times by the devil and he refuse every single offer that the devil made to him. The holy spirit was already guiding him in here for the miracles that Jesus would do after those fasting days and nights.
Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.
Jesus did many miracles after his baptism in the waters and with the Holy Spirit. For example we have the Weddings of Canaan, woman with bleeding flow, the rise of Jairus daughter, we got various deliverance from demonic possessions.
When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak,28 because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.”29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.
30 At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?”
In the bible it those not speak of any miracles of Jesus before his baptisms( in water & Holy Spirit) but it those give account to those after he was baptized. When God baptized his son with the Holy Spirit he gave the Spirit without limit and his son was able to do all of this miracles that made him known through Israel. Another example would be the day of the Pentecost and the baptism of the Holy Spirit to those there.
And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance.
It’s says in the book of Acts that they were speaking in different tongues and those of the nationality of the tongue would understand them speaking about the mighty deeds of God( Acts 2:11) but some would mock them and say the they were “Sweet on Wine”( Acts 2:13).
And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they began speaking with tongues and prophesying.
Another example would be the shadow of peter. It’s written in the bible that by his shadow only people were healed and freed from evil spirits ( Acts 5:15 ) this did not happen because peter had power but because the holy spirit rested in peter. It was the Holy Spirit doing the miracles through peter. Churches, ministers, worshipers and believers need that in their lives. We need that awakening that was in the Old church. we need the prophesying, with speaking in tongues and deliverance of spirits. Did you know that when the Holy Spirit manifest that is a different way for you to speak with God without the enemy knowing. As for deliverance many of us still Christians need deliverance from something that we are holding unto. Because we might go to church and be all christian like inside of church and outside to friends or family members but what about when we are alone in our houses. Are you still watching porn, masturbating, cursing, drinking, fornicating , adultering, being abuse and much more.
I speak through experience many of us got vices that you need to be delivered from if not at the least unexpected moment you will fall back into those addictions and vices. Worship is something fundamental; it’s a way to please and give the honor and glory to our God. But if you have not been baptized what can you give to the people. Are you gonna give them the doubts, blame, shame, hatred and much more that you are feeling in that moment instead of the peace, love, mercy and forgiveness that will be in you when the Holy Ghost manifest itself through you as a vessel.
I will be criticized for speaking the absolute truth but it’s time that people speak up. Don’t you think the Holy Spirit gets sad when he sees that churches, ministers, believers and worshipers don’t want him in their lives and churches. Do you think it pleases the Lord and the Holy Ghost that instead of the church wanting that connection with God through the Holy Spirit during worship are instead focused on the dramas, the skit dances and much more that is inside of churches nowadays.
I believe we have to use different ways to spread the gospel; however that should be done in the streets not inside of our church on top of our altars. The Altar is a Holy back in the days only the high priest was able to enter the Holiest of Holy but nowadays anyone can go on top. The Altar can’t be used as platform for that type of stuff; I believe the creators of this thought they were doing a good thing maybe they have for it to be used in the streets where unbelievers through one of those skit could be saved. However church is a different place; it’s the place where we have come to give the honor and glory to our God and to worship him. To give our absolute attention to him only not who is doing the dance right or playing the character right. You take the attention from God and at the end you left as you came.
That’s why we are seeing passive churches with passive youth and believers because they don’t have the Holy Spirit or they have suppressed him for things that take away his presence and gives in to our wants and desires. When God baptized Jesus with the Holy Spirit he gave it to him without limitations. And Jesus did many wonders and miracles as did the apostles but do you see that in churches nowadays. Our youth are spiritually dead; they can’t pray for more than five minutes if it’s possible less than that. Our churches are more involved in social media and this type of stuff then having that close connection with God. Do you think God wants a passive church or someone that doesn’t believe in the trinity?
So, because you are lukewarm–neither hot nor cold–I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
Are you ready for the coming of Christ? Is the church ready? Are you Hot or Cold? you need to decide if it’s the time to act or to continue being passive at church. We as a church in general need to be ready not preparing ourselves to be ready.
12 Truly, truly, I tell you, whoever believes in Me will also do the works that I am doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in My name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.
