The Holy Spirit does not stay in an unclean heart, but He is the one that will clean the heart. So, before calling Him to come live in your heart, first call Him to come clean(purify) your heart. The scriptures says it is the Holy Spirit that purifies the heart and gather all the sinful things in the heart and burn them with unquenchable fire~Matthew3:12. This implies that before asking the Holy Spirit to make you a consuming fire, you should first request that the consuming fire of the Holy Spirit descend on you to consume everything that will deny you access to the His Spirit.
In Malach3:3, the scriptures says; And He(the Holy Spirit) shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and He(the Holy Spirit) shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness. This scriptures clearly explains that it is the Holy Spirit that purifies our hearts from all forms of sin, for our hearts to be conducive for Him to live. So, we depend on the Holy Spirit to purify us and also depend on the Holy Spirit to live in us, and work through us.
We will stop here on Wisdom Bank. But go with this truth; THE FIRST THING THE HOLY SPIRIT WANT TO DO IN OUR LIVES IS TO PURIFY US BEFORE HE COMES TO LIVE WITHIN US. BECAUSE UNTIL WE ARE PURIFIED, HE CANNOT COME AND LIVE WITHIN US. THEREFORE, BEFORE YOU CALL THE HOLY SPIRIT TO COME AND LIVE IN YOU, FIRST CALL HIM TO COME AND PURIFY YOUR HEART ..BE WISE…!!!
