2-22-2015 “HIS SPIRIT : WITHIN US, UPON US & AROUND US!” part 4 “HE SHALL TEACH YOU!” 1John 2:20, 27


In today’s message Bro. Leo continues our study, of the presence of God, by looking at the teaching aspects of God’s Holy Spirit within us.  God’s Holy Spirit will give us a spirit of discernment if we allow Him to by reading and studying the Word of God.  With this spirit of discernment we are able to make spiritual decisions, which sets us apart from the carnal person we used to be.  If we don’t allow His Holy Spirit to give us a spirit of discernment, by reading and studying the Word of God, we will continue to make carnal decisions.  This means even though we are saved we will miss out on a lot of blessings God wants to give us in this life.  God’s Holy Spirit is our very own personal minister and if we allow Him He will teach us God’s wisdom.

 

Scriptures used in today’s message:

1Jn 2:20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.
1Jn 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

Joh 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Joh 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

Heb 5:11 Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing.
Heb 5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
Heb 5:13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
Heb 5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

1Co 3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.
1Co 3:2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.
1Co 3:3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?

1Co 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
1Co 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
1Co 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

Jas 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

Jas 3:13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
Jas 3:14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
Jas 3:15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

2-15-2015 “HIS SPIRIT : WITHIN US, UPON US & AROUND US!” Phil. 2-12-13, part 3

In today’s message Bro. Leo continues our study, of the presence of God, with this statement: “You have direct access as an individual to experience in a personal way God’s presence by His Holy Spirit.  Don’t ever let a Preacher, Pastor, Priest or a religion get between you and God”.  Our salvation and our relationship with God is simply between us as individuals and God.    One of the roles of the Holy Spirit to teach us God’s truth’s (1John 2:27) and the Preacher’s, Pastor’s and Priest’s are here to help.  An example would be seeking God.  The clergy can only encourage us to seek God, but the Holy Spirit will actually draw us to God (John 6:44, 12:32).  Religion and the clergy can help us with our relationship with God, but at the end of the day our relationship with God is ultimately between us as an individual and God.  The work of His Holy Spirit is: 1) His Spirit comes upon us,  2) His Holy Spirit dwells within us,  3) His Holy Spirit reassures us that we are His (Rom. 8:9-11, 16).

Scriptures used in today’s message:

Php 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
Php 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

1Jn 2:20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.
1Jn 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

Heb 4:14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
Heb 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
Heb 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Heb 10:19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,
Heb 10:20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
Heb 10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

Jas 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

Joh 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

Joh 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

Act 1:5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.

Joh 7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
Joh 7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
Joh 7:39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

Joh 4:10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
Joh 4:13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
Joh 4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

Rom 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
Rom 8:10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
Rom 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
Rom 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

In today’s message Bro. Leo continues our study, of the presence of God, with these three Biblical principles: 1) The reality of Jesus’ presence in us, on us and around us by the Divine entity of His Holy Spirit.  2) Jesus desires us to be conscious of His presence with us.  3)  Jesus wants us aware that He will never leave us alone.

2-1-2015 “HIS SPIRIT : WITHIN US, UPON US & AROUND US!” John 14:18, 20

In today’s message Bro. Leo started a new series on the importance of the reality of experiencing the presence of God through the indwelling of His Holy Spirit.  When God saves us He indwells us with His Holy Spirit (1Co 3:16), which allows us the reality of this supernatural  experience,  being in the presence of the divine entity (God).   We all celebrate our natural birth day and likewise all who are saved should know when we were saved and indwelt with His Holy Spirit.  We may not remember the exact day, but we should be able to remember the season/our age when God saved us.

We also added a Bible study to our website for a more extensive study of God’s presence in us, “HIS SPIRIT : WITHIN US, UPON US & AROUND US!” John 14:18, 20.
