Pneuma bagion is usually translated the Holy Spirit. The article "the" is inserted and capital letters are used, representative of the respect for God. The only God, is the God Head, the trinity, Father God, Jesus Christ & the Holy Spirit. All in one God, however all separate as well. In the gospels Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit to the waiting believers to empower them for service. This is described as the third Baptism. Whereas the first is your salvation (baptismal in the blood, His blood shed to save each of us), second is the baptismal in water (this is of man to proclaim your victory over death), then and most people miss this, receiving the Holy Spirit (the baptism of the Holy Spirit directly from Christ). It is the most powerful. There is a difference in being a saved Christian, and an anointed powerful warrior for the Kingdom. See acts 1:8. In Luke 24:49 he calls the coming visitation "power from on high" this power enables us:
1. To witness to the world. See acts 1:8
2. To pray correctly, see Romans 8:26
3. To understand scripture, see Psalms 119:18
4. To understand his will for our lives, see Eph 5:17, 18
5. To make decisions, see John 16:13
6. Do you know how to worship him in spirit and in truth, see John 4:24
7. To be healed, see Romans 8:11
8. To work miracles, see Galatians 3:5
9. To adequately love God, see Romans 5:5
10. To be anointed for fruitful and productive Christian service, see 1 John 2:27
These are a few of the ministries of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is not to influence like the "spirit of 76" or the "team spirit" or the national spirit of a country. The Holy Spirit is a person. He has a personality and is one with the Father and the Son in the Trinity. There are books in print on the "emblems of the spirit" that are informational and inspirational. Some of these emblems are: water, rain, rivers, the dew, the wind, oil, the dove, the holy anointing oil, the seal and the fire.
Being raised by Christian parents exposed to Christian academics and around loving people almost my entire life. This Didn't shelter me from abuse, from neglectfulness, manipulative behavior, among others. Not at all. In fact based in my experience it might have exposed me to more negative? I see it as a blessing because I can see the failures of Christians that are not alive in Christ, not living in the Spirit. I see the damage that people can do, the human condition, worse using Christianity as a weapon. I think the Takeaway for me is wow, what can we do with the power that the Holy Spirit provides. What can we do with the power and the guidance that is in the WORD. There's so much greatness, there so much power, we just have to keep our souls in check (our flesh), pray the hedge of protection around ourselves seeking obedience and stay in harmony with the Holy Spirit. Don't confuse this - it is mans lie that we have to be perfect---- God expects us to sin, to fall, that is okay. It is His Will that we seek Him, seek and have the intended heart to be obedient. That is where harmony comes from. So many of you out there that I know and those that I don't know yet, please let me call you into action. Please reach out to the Holy Spirit, listen to the voice of God, focus on good things, focus on positive, focus on love and the fruits of the Spirit. Together think of the change that we can start. Think of the movement. Think of the impact. Doesn't the world deserve this. I think we do. lOok at this; God himself loved us so much he sent his only son. His son endured more horrific experiences than any mother or father wants to think their child might have to endure, think about it. It is in that message that God is telling us we are worth it. So isn't it time that we believe that we are worth it. TYL PTL TGBTG!!!!
OK we know much of the New Testament contrast man's carnality and flesh nature in contradiction to mans walking in the Spirit. Everything associated with the fleshly man makes him/her a loser. For example: the flesh profits nothing see John 6:63; no flesh can,glory in his presence, see 1 Corinthians 1:29; In my flesh Dwells no good thing, see Romans 7:18; they are in the flesh cannot please God, see Romans 8:8.
By contrast notice the Victorious quality of life in the Spirit: as many are led by the Spirit are the sons God see Romans 8:14; walk in the spirit, and he will not fulfill the lust of the flesh, see Galatians 5:16; it is the spirit that quickens, see Romans 8:11; the Spirit helps our infirmities, see Romans 8:26; you will receive power of the Holy Spirit has come on you and you will be his witness Acts 1:8.
Victory over the flash comes by being filled with the spirit. Jesus promised the fullness of the Spirit to all who would ask according to Luke 11:13. In the English language 151 words start with Pneu- including 101 words which start with Pueum- such as pneumatic, pneumonia and pneumatology. All of these English words traced back to Pneuma spirit. Christianity is not a form, a ritual or ceremony. It is eternal life in breathed into its members by the Holy Spirit Pneuma see John 20:22
How about Refuse To Quit. The secret of any Champion is their refusal to quit trying. People who k ow me, know i say the deffinition of failure is to NOT TRY. Futility is merely a feeling, Conquer it and keep heading toward your goals. Create small successes when the large ones seem impossible.
Quitting does not give you what you really want. Every step away from yesterday is significant progress.
"For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little,"
Notice and Celebrate Those Who Love and support your goals; Recognize those God sends into your life to inspire and energize you. Acknowledge helpful insights with a smile, and resist the temptation to become defensive and belligerent. TYL Find ways to reward those who have made your goals and dreams come true; Those who honor you, deserve the best of your time and energy. Remember it is a true gift to give, more so than recieving.
