And I will shake all nations and the desire (or desire of all nations) shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts – Haggai 2:7
There’s coming a time, the heavens and the earth will be shaken. It will not matter what denomination you’re in, or the gods that have been served. If we aren’t rooted in the word of God, and is subject to His word, no matter how many times we attend church, volunteered in different auxiliaries, paid tithes, if His word is not in us, and we’re being subjected to His word, all that we’ve done will be in vain.
I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in Me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing – John 15:5
We allow habits and patterns to develop in our lives, and many of them aren’t helpful, but harmful. We know the areas in our lives that seems to have more control over us than we have over them.
Every word of God is pure (tried), He is a shield unto them that put their trust in Him – Proverbs 30:5
The majority of the time before people find God, they would have tried everything and God is their last solution.
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you – 2nd Corinthians 6:17
A Christian should live a holy life that reflects the nature of God. Holiness, means to be committed to the teaching of the scriptures, the instructions of the Father. As in the natural, children suppose to show some type of sign they belong to the individual who say they are their parents. They should look or talk like them, have some of their characteristics, it’s the same thing spiritually. Anyone who professes to be a Christian, should show attributes of their heavenly Father. As a part of basic beliefs of a Christian, they should separate themselves from actions, influences or people that will contaminate them. The Corinthian church was a immature congregation just as it is today with many churches. Many pastors have stopped teaching on sin and many in the congregation are on their way to hell because they aren’t being taught. Today’s salvation is, if you attend church, volunteer your talent or your body in different areas of the church; give your tithes and offering then you’re Christian. As a Christian, we should do this, but after doing all of this and then live opposite of the teaching of the scriptures, we’re still Hell bound.
According to the Word of God, we must be born again of the Spirit, and the Spirit of God that lives within our being will enable us to live according to the Word of God. It’s the responsibility of the pastors and leaders to lead the people into the promise land, but many of them are too busy and they aren’t spending enough time in the presence of God or His Word to give the people what God is saying.
In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not now how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the heart knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God – Romans 8:26-27 .When we don’t know how to express the words that needs to be prayed, if we allow the Holy Spirit, He will intercede in our prayer to the Father. Many times we pray with the intellect, hitting and missing what God will have us to pray for. In today’s Christian community, many Christians haven’t experienced the Holy Spirit praying through them; some because they aren’t aware the Holy Spirit will pray through them, and others because they haven’t been filled with the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is aware of everything, nothing is hidden from Him. When we have a consistent prayer life, and have submitted ourselves totally to God, the Holy Spirit will prompt our spirit to prayer for certain situations and people. Sometimes He will have you praying with moans and groans because of the severity of the situation. We cannot intercede in the Spirit unless the Spirit of God is indwelling our human spirit. The Holy Spirit will come and live within our human spirit when we have committed ourselves to live according to the Word of God. The Holy Spirit knows the heart of God and He will pray for those things that God desired to be prayed for. He also knows what’s in our hearts and what we desire to pray, but can’t formulate the words to pray.
Jesus told Nicodemus He had to be born again of the Spirit indicating He needed more than just salvation to enter into the kingdom of God (Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God (John 3:5). The Holy Spirit is a gift from God to the believer, all one has to do is be committed to serving God according to His Word and ask for the Holy Spirit (If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him – Luke 11:13). Every professing Christian should be asking the Father for the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit assist us to pray directly to the Father, He will lead and guide us in truth and discernment. The Holy Spirit will also assist us to praise the Father in the Spirit when we cannot think of words to express His majestic. Allow the Holy Spirit to pray, and if you haven’t received Him, ask the Father, and He will give you the gift that will excel your spiritual growth.
You haven’t experienced Christianity until you received the Spirit of the Living God indwelling your physical body. He’s the one that makes the Fruit of the Spirit manifest in us. He’s the one that perfects the gifts God have given to His children. If you haven’t been filled with the Holy Spirit, I advise you to do so by asking the Father; reminder, He will only indwell those who will make a commitment to live according to the Word of God.
