Believers Who reject The Power Of God
The Power of God 3
I was in a trance, in the early hours of this morning, and the glory of God came down and manifested in form of cloud. The Lord spoke to me and said, “ it is not wise to reject God.” The Lord’s message was about believers rejecting the fullness of the Holy Spirit. He has been training me on how to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Being filled with the Holy Spirit is a Scriptural command from God, however, a lot of believers overlook and ignore this holy command.
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. Ephesians 5:18
Unbelievers reject God completely and believers also reject God but in a different form. It is a subtle, unsuspecting and partial rejection of God. Whenever we refuse to be filled with the Holy Spirit, we are rejecting God. Our hearts are His temple and He eagerly wants to live there in His fullness and all of His glory.
He is constantly knocking at the door of our hearts, for us to open up our hearts, so that He can live there in His fullness, by filling our hearts with His life blood and manifest presence. He wants us to eat with us. Eating signifies fellowship and deep intimacy. He wants to eat with us and He also wants us to eat Him and drink Him. To eat Him and drink Him means to experience and taste His glory or manifest presence.
Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me. Revelations 3:20
May God, the source of hope, fill you with all joy and peace by means of your faith in him, so that your hope will continue to grow by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. John 6:53
Believers think that the fullness of the Holy Spirit is not important or that chasing after faith will improvise. Faith, hope and love come from the Holy Spirit so they are fruits, products and works of the Holy Spirit. They come through levels of grace given by God and are supernatural works of His grace. They can never replace the Holy Spirit who is the giver. We are called to chase and pursue the bridegroom not the presents or gifts. The more He filled us up, the more fruits that we will manifest.
When we reject the fullness of the Holy Spirit, we reject the fullness of His fruits and products. We leave ourselves unprotected and can be subject to afflictions. He is our life, provider, healing and protection. He is the miracle giver and wonder working God. Without Him, we can do nothing. It is great wisdom for us to realize this and never be distracted by shadows and subtle deceptions. We must stop chasing the wind and chase after God. He alone is worthy.
When Jesus told the woman with the issue of blood that her faith made her whole it was her faith in God and the anointing that He was manifesting through Jesus. It was not her faith in her own faith. She never read all the thousands of books on faith that people read today. It was a simple childlike faith. She saw a Prophet of God who was highly anointed by God and said, “if I touch His garment, I will be made whole.”
Her faith was in the power that Jesus carried with Him. That power is the manifest presence of God. Faith must be in something. People want to twist that Scripture around and make it look like her faith alone saved her like some god. No, it was not her faith alone, it was her faith in the power of God not her faith in her faith. Biblical faith is faith in God and His power.
Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. Matthew 22:29 NIV
Jesus replied, “Your mistake is that you don’t know the Scriptures, and you don’t know the power of God. Matthew 22:29 New Living Translation
Knowing the Scriptures is different from knowing the power of God. True knowledge of the Scripture leads you to know or experience the power of God. Head knowledge of Scripture is different from knowing the fullness of the Holy Spirit. Those who have head knowledge of the Scripture but do not know the power of God do not have their spiritual equations right. Their equation has not balanced and they must make it their aim to balance the ultimate spiritual equation – your knowledge of Scriptures must lead to knowledge and reality of the power of God. Anything else is subtle deception introduced by the devil to confuse us and cheat us of our birthright which is the fullness of the Holy Spirit.
It is His manifest presence that makes us whole not faith. Our faith should be in His manifest presence. The anointing breaks the yoke. It is not by power or might but by His Spirit. When you start believing that your faith makes you whole, you start developing faith in your faith and begin to depend on your faith. Your faith then turns into an idol. However, if you believe that the manifest presence of God alone makes you whole, you begin to depend on that manifest presence and your faith in Him and His power grows. It is that faith what will motivate you to constantly seek His face for the fullness of the Holy Spirit, and His daily infilling.
The right conviction leads to action that yields positive result. That result is the fullness of the Holy Spirit. If you are not seeking the fullness of the Holy Spirit aggressively, begin to review what you believe. The violent take the Kingdom of God by force and the manifest presence of God is the Kingdom of God. That kingdom of God is within us and we must be filled with His glory.
May we always seek the Lord’s face and wait upon Him daily for fresh and constant infilling of His Holy Spirit. May we always be led by Him and hear His divine counsels.
It is God’s blessing to us to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
Yes, such a glorious blessing 😊
Thanks a lot for the encouraging response. Blessings 🙏❤️❤️❤️
Thanks Laura. I’ve been reading a couple of books by Jack Deere on this area. They have truly encouraged me to seek Him in this regard. Since saved by the Lord five years ago, I’ve attended two Baptist churches, and I wasn’t aware of His power, e.g. miraculous gifts were still available to us today until reading Jack Deere’s books. Then within the hour after your email of this post (and before I saw the email) I checked the gotquestions.org web site, which doesn’t believe these gifts are common today. So, your post was an encouragement with excellent timing. Any other thoughts on this topic, as well as how to aggressively seek the Lord’s “face” and what that means would be much appreciated. I’ve been praying and praising Him more and I enjoy this, as well as asking Him what He is doing in different areas I encounter daily in life and trying to remember to let Him know I’m available for His use. Thanks Sister for your posts, and love in Christ.
Thank you so much for the inspiring response. The Holy Spirit is one and I’m so glad that He made you read this post just at the right time. He knows that you are thirsty and hungry and that is a key prerequisite for being filled with the Holy Spirit.
On the subject of how to aggressively seek His face, our desire, hunger or thirst must be expressed in form of asking. We need to constantly ask Him for His Holy Ghost Power to fall upon us and fill us. Our prayers will typically include Bible reading, praise, thanksgiving, worship and petitions. We enter into His presence with worship and then ask for the fullness of His Spirit.
I have noticed that midnight prayer is very effective so we can incorporate midnight prayer on nights that we do not have to go to work in the morning. However, if it is not possible to pray at night we can express our desire to Him during the day.
It is that desire and passion that moves Him. He wants us to acknowledge our need for Him in petitions and to earnestly and ardently desire His presence. He has described it to me as crying for a long time and calling His name for a long time. We must also persist and not give up until we experience Him. It is a spiritual journey that culminates in the reality of His presence. Blessings 🙏❤️❤️❤️
Thank you! 😌
You were in a trance state? I don’t believe trance states are from God as the Apostle Paul adjures us to “hold fast to the mind”. I’ve had supernatural experiences and every one–whether a vision (once) or other such supernatural events–I am always totally aware of my environment. I never do, or have lost, control of my conscious mind.
Thank you Laura for your loving inspiration. Reminding us to have faith. I have complete faith in the healing from God, it is know God and Jesus love for us to heal us. Only through prayer which I do, do I receive healing. Blessings to you.
Amen. Thank you so much for the beautiful words. God wants what is best for us including healing. May we never forget to present our petitions to our Heavenly Father who gives good things to those that ask. 🙏❤️
