Blessed From The Womb

For he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will also be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb. (Luke 1:15 NKJV)

A lot of Christians struggle so hard to be filled with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is in every believer but every believer is not filled with the Holy Spirit. The Bible talks about being filled with the Holy Spirit, being led by the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit upon and the Holy Spirit with a believer.

Do not get drunk with wine, which will only ruin you; instead, be filled with the Spirit. Ephesians 5::18

The prophets of the Old Testament had the Holy Spirit. Remember Joseph and Daniel. Who gave them abilities to interpret dreams and see visions? The Holy Spirit did. The Holy Spirit in John made Him a great prophet and he was great in the sight of God. This same John told us that we will be baptised with the Holy Spirit and fire.

I baptise you with water to show that you have repented, but the one who will come after me will baptise you with the Holy Spirit and fire. He is much greater than I am; and I am not good enough even to carry his sandals. Matthew 3:1

A lot of people struggle to be filled with the Holy Spirit but John was filled with the Holy Spirit from the womb. This shows that being filled with the Holy Spirit is a gift and a promise. It is not for the unclean and idol worshippers. John’s parents were clean and God chose them to give birth to John. We can see that our bloodline is very important in life. We need to lay good foundations for our children.

Bad foundation of idol worship can make an innocent child to be filled with evil spirits from the womb – poor child. He will come into this life battling and wresting with giants simply because His parents were disobedient and not wise. As for John, he came into this world blessed. There is no greater blessing than the blessing and favour of being filled with the Holy Spirit.

A person that is born filled with evil spirits usually experiences fear, torture, hardship, failure, difficulties and illnesses while a person that is filled with the Holy Spirit will experience love, joy, peace, and all the fruits of the Holy Spirit. He will manifest the gifts of the Holy Spirit and be healthy because the Holy Spirit gives life. Anyone who is consistently filled with the Holy Spirit will experience the fruits of life not the fruits of death.

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 2 Corinthians 3:17

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control (Galatians 5:22 – 5:23 NKJV)

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

it is he who made us capable of serving the new covenant, which consists not of a written law but of the Spirit. The written law brings death, but the Spirit gives life. 2 Corinthians 3:6

All of us, then, reflect the glory of the Lord with uncovered faces; and that same glory, coming from the Lord, who is the Spirit, transforms us into his likeness in an ever greater degree of glory. 2 Corinthians 3:18

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. Romans 8:11

So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. 1 Corinthians 15:45

We can learn from the example of John to keep our bloodline pure and Holy so that our children do not inherit demon idols, evil spirits and afflictions. We can also determine within ourselves to run into the blood of Jesus for cleansing power. Regardless of the how many demons or afflictions that we inherited from polluted bloodline, the blood of Jesus and the Holy Ghost power is greater.

The Bible says that we are blessed in Christ Jesus. All we need is to activate the power of God through the blood of Jesus and the fullness of the Holy Spirit. We do this by seeking the face of God and waiting upon Him. Once that happens, and we persist, our spirits and aura will become cleansed and we will experience liberty and freedom.

The blood of Jesus is powerful and active – stronger than any and every affliction. May we taste Him and drink Him like the Israelites. When His glory appears, we will be filled by Him like John the Baptist.

    Thanks be to YAHUAH for He has provided the means to be delivered of generational curses. It’s been only in the last few decades that this was brought back to the body of Messiah by His Spirit in order that they could receive deliverance and healing without which as you point out they’d be beset lifelong with the effects of these curses not knowing why nor how to rid themselves of them. As to your comment about learning from the example of John and his parents. I just posted on my blog, a relevant and complementary post that also ties in with this one of yours – and to think I had no idea you’d be posting this LOL

      Thanks for the lovely comment. We thank God for His great mercies that delivers from generational curses. Will check out the complementary post. It always brings a smile to my face anytime I see this Scripture that that said John the Baptist would be filled with the Holy Spirit from the womb. ❤️🙏😊

      I am reading your post gitardood. It is an uplifting one. Cheers!

    He came in the form of man, yet he was a spirit. He died for life to begin. He was wounded for us to be set free. He ascended in heaven to prepare a place for us who are HIS believers. He gave us power when we accepted HIM……

    Pleasure, Laurabon. Keep the faith.
