Reply to all that are seeking the filling of their spirit with the Holy Spirit with all their heart.
All Christians have a measure of Gods Spirit as I do. I was seeking the Lord God in the scriptures and reading about The Holy Spirit was as far as I could go. Only The Holy Spirit can reveal the hidden things of God.
[ all glory be to God ]
And the men, which Moses sent to search the land, who returned, and made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up a slander upon the land, Even those men that did bring up the evil report upon the land, died by the plague before the Lord. But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of the men that went to search the land, lived still
I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.
In those days there was no king in Israel: and in those days the tribe of the Danites sought them an inheritance to dwell in; for unto that day all their inheritance had not fallen unto them among the tribes of Israel.
And the children of Dan sent of their family five men from their coasts, men of valour, from Zorah, and from Eshtaol, to spy out the land, and to search it; and they said unto them, Go, search the land: who when they came to mount Ephraim, to the house of Micah, they lodged there. When they were by the house of Micah, they knew the voice of the young man the Levite: and they turned in thither, and said unto him, Who brought thee hither? and what makest thou in this place? and what hast thou here?
And he said unto them, Thus and thus dealeth Micah with me, and hath hired me, and I am his priest. And they said unto him, Ask counsel, we pray thee, of God, that we may know whether our way which we go shall be prosperous.
And the priest said unto them, Go in peace: before the Lord is your way wherein ye go.
Then the five men departed, and came to Laish, and saw the people that were therein, how they dwelt careless, after the manner of the Zidonians, quiet and secure; and there was no magistrate in the land, that might put them to shame in any thing; and they were far from the Zidonians, and had no business with any man.
And they came unto their brethren to Zorah and Eshtaol: and their brethren said unto them, What say ye?
And they said, Arise, that we may go up against them: for we have seen the land, and, behold, it is very good: and are ye still? be not slothful to go, and to enter to possess the land.
When ye go, ye shall come unto a people secure, and to a large land: for God hath given it into your hands; a place where there is no want of any thing that is in the earth.
And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not. Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
I receive not honour from men. But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.
I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?
A true Christian cannot but seek the filling of The Holy Spirit. The biggest rebellion against God is refusing the indwelling of His Spirit.
Lack of The Holy Spirit is the source of spiritual weakness.
Lack of The Holy Spirit is the cause of having little or no power.
Lack of The Holy Spirit is the source of spiritual blindness.
Lack of The Holy Spirit is the source of spiritual deafness.
Lack of The Holy Spirit is the source of spiritual darkness.
Lack of The Holy Spirit is the source of all our spiritual failure.
Some Christians can take the measure of The Holy Spirit and with personality and position can carnally preach, but if you have ever stood before a group for the first time to speak about the revelations of The Spirit of Truth you had received not from flesh and bones you know another meaning for weakness in the flesh, no power .
Peter preached with enough Power of The Holy Spirit [ all the glory be to God ] on the Day of Pentecost that hundreds were healed and converted.
