ACCCESS TO THE HOLY SPIRIT; A CLEAN HEART.

      The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of GOD, and GOD will not put HIS Spirit in an unclean vessel, but in a clean vessel. So many of us cannot stand an unclean environment, not to talk of living in an unclean environment, yet we call the Holy Spirit to come and live in our unclean hearts. Please listen, the Holy Spirit won’t come into our hearts until we clean up our hearts. If our hearts are still contaminated by lies, immoral thoughts and immoral desires, back-biting, envy, strife and so on, the Spirit of GOD cannot live in us. 

  The scriptures explain, it says; ” New wine cannot be put in an old wine-skin, otherwise it burst and the wine spills off, but New wine must be put in a new wine-skin~Mark2:22″. Which means that until we have a new heart, the Holy Spirit cannot live in our hearts. The scriptures also says; As many that are led by the Spirit of GOD, they are the sons of GOD~Romans8:14. In other words, for us to manifest the glory of GOD, we need to be led by the Spirit of GOD, and we cannot be led by the Spirit of GOD until we have a clean heart.
  That is how far we will go on Wisdom Bank today. But pray the prayer King David prayed; CREATE IN ME A CLEAN HEART, AND RENEW A RIGHT SPIRIT WITHIN ME~Psalm51:10. THEREFORE, CLEAN UP YOUR HEART FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT TO HAVE ACCESS INTO YOUR HEART TODAY…BE WISE…!!!

YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR RELATIONSHIP!


  While they were worshiping the LORD and fasting, the Holy Spirit said; “Set apart for me Barnabas and Paul for the work to which I have called them~Acts13:2(English Standard Version)
  That the LORD told you that; “that is your wife” or “that is your husband” doesn’t mean it will automatically work. If both of you won’t take responsibility to make it work, it won’t work. So many GOD-ordained relationships have failed, not because they were not meant to be together, neither is it because they didn’t hear from GOD, but because they were not taking responsibilities to do the things that makes relationship work. Think of the example in the anchor scriptures, it was GOD that called Paul and Barnabas to work together, despite that, they broke up. They had great contentions, so great that they went their separate ways~Acts15:39. That is same way so many relationships and marriages GOD called have gone their separate ways.


  Therefore, do not fold your hands and expect things to work on its own accord, thinking because it is GOD that told you that he or she is your spouse things will work on its own. My dear, don’t be deceived, it won’t work like that. You have to take responsibility to make it work! GOD HIMSELF expects you to take responsibilities, which is a prove of your faith that you believe in the relationship, then GOD will be moved to help you make it work. The responsibility to make it work is not only that of the man, neither is it for the woman, it is a collective responsibility. When you are expecting your man(or woman) to take responsibility for everything in the relationship, he(or she) will soon get choked and begin to ask himself(or herself) if he(or she) actually heard GOD say you are the one, or he(or she) heard himself(or herself). The moment such thought begins to come is the beginning of the end of that relationship. So, don’t leave the responsibility to him(or her) alone, but determine to make it work!
  That is how far we will go on the relationship segment of Wisdom Bank, join us next weekend for the next relationship segment of Wisdom Bank. But go with this truth; WHEN GOD SPEAKS, HE EXPECTS YOU TO MOVE, WHICH IS A PROVE OF YOUR FAITH IN WHAT HE SAYS. SO, IF GOD SHOWS YOU YOUR SPOUSE, HE EXPECTS YOU TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITIES TO MAKE IT WORK. DO NOT BE LIKE PAUL AND BARNABAS THAT WENT THEIR SEPERATE WAYS…BE WISE…!!!

THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE GREATEST TEACHER.

   One of the assignment of the Holy Spirit on earth is to teach us. He longs to teach us about GOD and how to please GOD, He longs to teach us about JESUS and how we can live like JESUS. There is no way we can get close to GOD without pleasing GOD, and there is no way we can please GOD without the help of the Holy Spirit. In other words, if we crave to get closer to GOD, we must crave for the Holy Spirit daily. JESUS is our perfect example, we are expected to pattern our lives after JESUS. But no one can truly live like JESUS(especially in this corrupt world) without the help of the Holy Spirit. In same vein, if we crave to pattern our lives after JESUS, we must crave for the Holy Spirit daily.


  The Holy Spirit also desire to teach us about ourselves, how to live right, and how to make maximum use of our potentials. When we surrender ourselves to the Holy Spirit, HE begins to teach us about ourselves, then we will realize that we do not really know much about ourselves, we just used to think we know ourselves well. He will teach us how to make the best use of our lives, how to live peacefully with others, how to make profitable use of our gifts and talents and how to fulfil purpose. The Holy Spirit teaches us how to fulfil purpose by teaching us how to use our time, our energy and our resources for maximum profit.
  Let us stop here on Wisdom Bank, join us tomorrow on the relationship segment of Wisdom Bank. But go with these advice; ALLOW THE HOLY SPIRIT TO TEACH YOU HOW TO PLEASE GOD, HOW TO LIVE LIKE JESUS CHRIST, AND HOW TO MAKE THE BEST USE OF YOUR LIFE. THEREFORE, SEEK THE HELP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT EVERYDAY…BE WISE…!!!

WHAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WANT TO DO IN OUR LIVES.

     There are several things we benefit from allowing the Holy Spirit to live in our hearts. Here are five benefits amongst several others;
1. TO ANOINT US WITH POWER; The Holy Spirit want to empower us to be able to carry out the plan of GOD for our lives~Acts1:8. For without the Holy Spirit, we cannot be empowered, without being empowered, we cannot carry out the plan of GOD for our lives.
2. .TO TEACH YOU THE WORD OF GOD; JESUS CHRIST said; when the Holy Spirit comes, He will teach us all things~John14:26. So, it is the Holy Spirit that teaches us the word of GOD and enhance our understanding, which makes us outstanding in life.
3. TO GIVE US VICTORY OVER TEMPTATIONS; The scriptures says; Walk in the Spirit, and you won’t fulfil the lust of the flesh~Galatians5:16. In other words, if the Holy Spirit lives in us, we won’t fall to temptations.


4. TO FILL US WITH WISDOM AND REVELATION; In Ephesians 1:17, we discovered that the Spirit if GOD is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation. It is the Holy Spirit that reveals the benefits of redemption to us, and gives us the wisdom to live by it.
5. TO ENABLE US FULFIL PURPOSE; You are not here on earth to add to the numbers of people GOD created, you are here on a definite purpose(Jeremiah 1:5), but without the help of the Holy Spirit, you will not be able to fulfil that purpose.
  Wisdom Bank will round up here today on what the Holy Spirit wants to do for us. But note; THE MOST IMPORTANT THING THE HOLY SPIRIT WANT IS TO HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH US AND BRING US TO THE PRESENCE OF GOD. THEREFORE, ALLOW THE HOLY SPIRIT INTO YOUR LIFE NOW…BE WISE…!!!

POINTS TO PROVE THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT IS A PERSON, AND NOT A POWER.

 


The Holy Spirit is not a power, He is a person that has power and can empower us to carry out the plan of GOD for our lives. Here are three points to prove to us that the Holy Spirit is a person and not a power;

1. If the Holy Spirit is a power, we will want to get it. If the Holy Spirit is a person, He will want to get us. The people that thinks the Holy Spirit is a power always crave to get it, not knowing that the Holy Spirit Himself craves to get them, craves to live in them and manifests His power through them.
2. If the Holy Spirit is a power, we will want to use it to carry out our plans. If the Holy Spirit is a person, we will want to surrender to Him to carry out His plan through us. The people that think the Holy Spirit is a power  always want to use the Holy Spirit, not knowing that the Holy Spirit want to use them to manifests His glory and make them a living wonder.


3. If the Holy Spirit is a power, we will be proud to have it and feel superior to those that do not have it. If the Holy Spirit is a person, we will be humbled that the third person of the Trinity chose to live within us. Those that sees the Holy Spirit as a power desire to have it, so that they can see other people as inferior. But if they understand that the Holy Spirit is a person, they will be humbled and feel en-graced that the Holy Spirit chose to live in and work through them.
  Wisdom Bank will stop here today. But note; THE HOLY SPIRIT IS NOT A A POWER (OR A THING) TO BE USED, RATHER HE IS A PERSON TO USE US. WE MUST CHANGE OUR MENTALITY FROM DESIRING TO GET THE HOLY SPIRIT FOR OUR PERSONAL USE, AND ALLOW THE HOLY SPIRIT TO GET US FOR HIS USE, WHICH IS TO OUR BENEFITS. THEREFORE, WELCOME THE HOLY SPIRIT AS A PERSON INTO YOUR HEART TODAY…BE WISE…!!!

THE HOLY SPIRIT

   The Holy Spirit is not a fire, not a force, not a feeling, nor a wind, HE is a person. He is third person of the Trinity(1John5:7), He is the Spirit of GOD, through whom GOD created the heavens and the earth~Genesis1:2. The Holy Spirit is not a power, rather He empowers, and without the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, we will continue to be a prey to the devil. That was why JESUS sent the Holy Spirit to us after HE left the earth, so that the Holy Spirit will teach us and empower us to overcome the challenges satan puts on our way in our quest to fulfil purpose. But the truth is that until we have the true understanding of the Holy Spirit, we cannot know His purpose in our lives, neither can we enjoy His benefits. But I trust that the Holy will reveal Himself to us in this series, as we open our hearts to know Him.

   Though, the Holy Spirit is a person, but He does not have flesh and blood like you and me, rather He longs to live within our flesh and blood, when we allow Him to live within us, we become His body(His flesh and blood), and He manifests Himself through us, thereby making us a living wonder amongst others. The Holy Spirit is a perfect gentleman, He does not, and will not force Himself on you, but He waits patiently till you have time for Him. Having time for the Holy Spirit is to your benefits. Those that don’t have time for Him do not know what they are missing. The truth is; He is always there with you, He never leaves, though if you do not have time for Him, you will never experience His power, nor enjoy His benefits, because you did not allow Him into you, despite that, He is always there with you. The Holy Spirit lives in, and work through those that allow Him to live in them and make them a living wonder amongst people.

  Wisdom Bank will round up with this truth; INSTEAD OF ASKING THE HOLY SPIRIT TO EMPOWER YOU, WHY NOT ASK HIM TO COME AND LIVE WITHIN YOU, AND ALL HE HAS(INCLUDING HIS POWER THAT YOU NEED) WILL BE YOURS…BE WISE…!!!

CLEAR OFF FAITH-KILLERS AND WALK WITH FAITH GIANTS


  Jarius, one of the rulers of the synagogue came to call JESUS to heal his daughter. As they were going, Jarius got a news that he should no longer bother JESUS, because his daughter had died, but JESUS encourage Jarius’ faith. When JESUS got there, there were professional mourners, already mourning the death of Jarius daughter. JESUS told them that the girl was not dead, but sleeping, but they laughed HIM to scorn. JESUS cleared off all the people, because their lack of faith was a barrier to the restoration of the girl. After JESUS had cleared off all the barriers, HE took the girl by the hand and told her to rise up, and the girl rose~Mark5:22-23,35-43.
  Please listen, may be the reason why you have not gotten the miracle you desire is because of the barriers hanging around your life. If only you will clear off those barriers, you will have your desired miracle. JESUS knew that Jarius’ faith was needed for the restoration of his daughter, so when they brought the news that will break down his faith, JESUS encouraged his faith~Mark5:35-36.
  JESUS did not take everybody with HIM, HE only took those that have grown to the level of faith required for the mission ahead~Mark5:37. In same vein, you do not need everyone, but only those that have enough faith to believe you can achieve your goals. Like JESUS, as you pursue your goals, don’t take those that do not believe in your goals along with you. Screen them out, and chose the few people that believe in your goals.
 JESUS also did a test of faith for the people(the professional mourners) HE met in Jarius’ house. When HE found out that they were faithless people and they would break down Jarius’ faith and contaminate the faith atmosphere, HE cleared all of them out~Mark5:38-42. 
  Please know that you cannot continue to walk with faith killers and expect to experience any change of level. They are barriers to your change of level, until you clear them off, you cannot experience a change of level. If JESUS had to clear off those professional mourners(barriers) before the miracle, believe me, you also cannot experience any miracle until you clear off those barriers, those faith killers, those professional mourners in your life…BE WISE…!!!
