Be Filled with the Fullness of the Spirit In the Very Depths of Our Being!!!!!!!

Hello Precious One!                                                                                                         12-12-2017

 

Ezekiel 37: 1-10                 The hand of the LORD was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones.  He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry.  He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I said, “Sovereign LORD, you alone know.”  Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD!  This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life.  I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.'”  So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone.  I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them.  Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Come, breath, from the four winds and breathe into these slain, that they may live.'”  So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet–a vast army.

Ephesians 5:18                   Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit,

 

How do you get drunk or “filled” with alcohol?  Pretty simple, drink a lot of alcohol until your body is full of alcohol!!!!!!  And then a person who is always getting drunk, we call them, alcoholics.  It is the substance of the alcohol that makes them drunk.  They become under the influence of the alcohol.

I was talking to a brother in the Lord one day about this and he said you become drunk in the Spirit by denying your flesh a lot.  I said to him that we become inebriated with a substance by filling our bodies with the substance.  Just denying the flesh is not filling ourselves up with the substance of the Spirit.  There is a sense where we do need to turn off the earthly noise in our hearts, and enter into the realm of the Spirit, intentionally!!!

We need to drink very, very, very deeply of the Holy Spirit, to be filled of the Spirit!  In the verses in Ezekiel, he tells the son od man to breathe from the four winds.  There are only four directions the winds come from, so the Lord is telling the son of man to breathe from the fullness of the breath of the Spirit, from all directions!  Breathe, release into the dry bones, the fullness of the Spirit that they may live!

What if we drank very, very, very deeply of the Spirit, consistently?  The Bible says to live by the Spirit, walk by the Spirit, be led by the Spirit, keep in step with the Spirit and then, be filled with the Spirit.  Jesus said that it is better that He leaves and then the Father will send the promised Holy Spirit!  Holy Spirit is the third person in the Godhead!  How would you like to go to a place that never mentioned God the Father?  How about if they never mentioned Jesus?  Or a place that never mentioned the Bible?  But, many, many places give very little priority to Holy Spirit!!!

Holy Spirit is the presence of God and the presence of Jesus on the earth and in our hearts, today, on the earth!  I believe we are going to see a Great Awakening of the Holy Spirit in all denominations, even denominations that in the past, have been fearful of fully embracing the Holy Spirit!  I went to a place that had had Holy Spirit “Aglow” services once a month.  They said there was freedom in the Spirit in these meetings that they couldn’t have during the Sunday morning service.  I believe this is changing!!!!  The church is waking up to the fact that we need more power of the Holy Spirit, we need to fully embrace Holy Spirit in the very depths of our hearts and in the heart of our churches, to spread the Gospel of the Kingdom over the whole earth!

Why don’t we let this embracing of the Spirit, start with us, in the very depths of our being?  I was laying in bed earlier this morning, and I just felt this need to drink deep, deep, deep….. of the Spirit into my entire being!  We, I, need to live FULL of the Spirit!!!!   We all need to embrace the Spirit in the very depths of our entire being until we are FULL of the Spirit in our entire being!!!!!!  It is sooooooo easy to get distracted with life on the earth!!!  There is a sense where we do deny earthly distractions so that we can live filled and full of the Spirit!!!!  Let us let the Spirit dominate us, not the world and our fleshly emotions!!!!!!!

What if we drank heavily and very deeply of the substance of Holy Spirit?  I have been reading about some of the great people in the Bible, all of them, without fail, it says that they were, “full of the Spirit”, or that “the Spirit came upon them with great power”!!!!

We need a lot help, to live our lives completely full of the Spirit!!!  I believe a good starting place is to simply ask Holy Spirit, the Helper, to help us to live, filled with the Spirit!  This is the Father’s Will for every human being!!!!  We were all created to live in the fullness of the Spirit on the earth, as it is in heaven!!!!!

I Bless you as you embrace Holy Spirit with all of your heart!!!!!!  I Bless you to realize that Holy Spirit is interceding with deep groans to help you in this weakness, so you can walk in the fullness of the Spirit, all of the time!!!!!

HOLY GHOST!!!!!!!!!!     HOLY GHOST!!!!!!!!!!!!     HOLY GHOST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!     HOLY GHOST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!      HOLY GHOST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!         HOLY GHOST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Living, Walking, Being Led By and Filled With the Spirit!!!

Hello Precious One!                                                                                                        12-11-2017

 

Romans 7:6                But now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code.

2 Corinthians 3:6               He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant–not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

John 6:63              The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you–they are full of the Spirit and life.

Galatians 3:2-3          I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by believing what you heard?  Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?  Have you suffered so much for nothing, if it really was for nothing?  Does God lavish His Spirit on you and work miracles among you because you practice the Law, or because you hear and believe?

2 Corinthians 3:17-18       Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.  But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.

Galatians 5:16      So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.

Galatians 5:18           But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

Galatians 5:25           Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.

Romans 8:4        in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.  Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace……..  You, however, are controlled not by the flesh, but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ…….  But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness.  And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.  Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation–but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it.  For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.  For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.

Ezekiel 36:27        I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.  And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees

Isaiah 44:3               For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants.

Ezekiel 37:14            I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the LORD have spoken, and I have done it, declares the LORD.'”

Isaiah 32:15         Until the Spirit is poured out upon us from on high, And the wilderness becomes a fertile field, And the fertile field is considered as a forest.

Ezekiel 39:29              I will no longer hide my face from them, for I will pour out my Spirit on the people of Israel, declares the Sovereign LORD.”

Zechariah 4:6          So he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty.

John 7:37         On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink.  Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”  By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.

Romans 8:26-27        Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.  And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

 

I am not sure how much I have intentionally lived by the Spirit.  Actually, I am pretty sure, I have not intentionally done this, much.  I have done a lot of prayer and meditation and Bible studies, and a lot of other things similar to this, but to intentionally live my life by the Spirit, keeping in step with the Spirit, I don’t think having a relationship with Holy Spirit has been the focus and priority of my life!   I have done a lot of things FOR Christ and His cause, but living by the Spirit, live being filled with the Spirit??????

This is changing in me, radically or drastically!!!!  I am acknowledging the Spirit as much as I can, now, during the day and asking Him, the Helper, to help me stay fixed and focused on Him!  To be focused of Him is also to be focused on Jesus and the heavenly realm.  We connect with Jesus through Holy Spirit!  We connect with the Father and the kingdom of heaven, through Holy Spirit!  God and Jesus are Spirits, the kingdom is a spiritual kingdom, and we relate to them by and through, Holy Spirit!!!!  I am doing this more and more!

I Bless you too as you embrace Holy Spirit and let Him fill your life.  Relating to Holy Spirit on a personal level is different than moving in the Gifts of the Spirit!!!  We can move in the Gifts, and not really live by and be filled with Holy Spirit on a personal level!  So, I Bless you in your relationships with the Father and Son, through Holy Spirit!!!!!
