Hi brothers and sisters,
We need to make sure that we do have a real relationship with Jesus and that we are being led by the Holyspirit.
Jesus promises to be the Shepherd who leads His sheep to good pasture.
He does this through the continued leadership of the Holyspirit.
When leaving earth,Jesus said He would not leave His disciples like orphans but instead would send the Holyspirit to lead them in all truth.
The work of the Holyspirit is to be a constant Shepherd and Teacher to God’s children while they are on earth until the day they leave this earth.
His work is to be a Shepherd.
Whenever a child of God is about to stray from the path the Holyspirit is there to correct them,rebuke them and teach them.
He does not just watch them silently.
He speaks about sin even on things not clearly stated in scripture,the Holyspirit will still clearly tell God’s children not to engage in those sins.
The Holy Spirit will still clearly tell God’s children not to partake of ungodly entertainment.
And at the same time the Holy Spirit also speaks pertaining to false teachings that satan may try to bring in God’s name.The Holyspirit speaks clearly on what is true and what is false because He doesn’t want us to be misled.He wants us to keep walking on the path to eternal life.
We really need the Holyspirit.
He is jealous for us because He doesn’t want us to be defiled by this world but wants us to be holy and pleasing to our Bridegroom, JESUS.
He speaks because His desire is that we should be saved.
The Holyspirit speaks and shows the way in all circumstances because He doesn’t want God’s children to lose their salvation.
But when people stubbornly continue in sin, ignoring the Holyspirit, eventually He lets them have their way, because He cannot force us to obey.
The Holyspirit will not watch God’s children continue in sin and not correct and rebuke them.
That is why when a person receives the baptism of the Holyspirit,the most evident change is their lifestyle.
A person cannot receive the baptism of the Holyspirit yet comfortably continue in their sins.
The Holyspirit is the author of HOLINESS and when He begins the work of holiness in a believer,He wants to make sure He completes that work.
That is why we must make sure we are led by the Holyspirit and not walking in the flesh.
We must not be stubborn to His correction and rebuke.
Sometimes the Holyspirit tells people to quit sin but they choose to ignore because they are comparing themselves to other Christians instead of just looking at Jesus.
Such people will persish in the end because people cannot save us, only Jesus can.
No one can become the Holyspirit for us,there’s no replacement for the Holyspirit.
That is why we must make sure that we develop a relationship with Jesus by staying connected to Him.
Spend time in real prayer from the heart daily,and have a lifestyle of seeking God.
Give God priority in your life.
The Lord will start to teach you and to prune you.
He corrects because He wants to give you eternal life because sin cannot enter the Kingdom of heaven.
The Holyspirit cannot lead and teach you when you never spend time in prayer and just spend time on earthly things.
Start to pray and Jesus will be your Teacher.He wants to.
If you want to clearly know God’s voice,it happens automatically when you have been spending alot of time in prayer.
Seek God and have a real relationship with Jesus.
Make sure you obey the Holyspirit.Do not grieve Him with sin.
