Good morning all. Brendan was reading this passage today. It is very appropriate as we head into Holy Week. All over the world Easter is celebrated. May the Holy Spirit move all over the world this year 2022.
John 14 v 15
If you love me, you will obey my commandments. I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, who will stay with you forever. He is the Spirit, who reveals the truth about God. The world cannot receive him, because it cannot see him or know him. But you know him, because he remains with you and is in you.
“Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. My Father will love those who love me; I too will love them and reveal myself to them.”
Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, “Lord, how can it be that you will reveal yourself to us and not to the world?”
Jesus answered him, “Those who love me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and my Father and I will come to them and live with them. Those who do not love me do not obey my teaching. And the teaching you have heard is not mine, but comes from the Father, who sent me.
“I have told you this while I am still with you. The Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and make you remember all that I have told you.
Jesus was talking to his disciples at his last supper with them.
The Holy Spirit that Jesus promised has come to the earth. He has come to every believer in Jesus. He teaches us the truth about Jesus. The Holy Spirit will make us remember all he has told us. He wants us to obey Jesus teaching.
If you have experienced the Holy Spirit in your life in the past this post is for you. Perhaps you have not continued to obey Jesus commands to love God and love one another. God gave Moses ten commandments for the people of Israel. Jesus didn’t come to make Moses commandments useless. They are condensed in this one command that Jesus gave.
I hear some Christians say, “I’m an adult. I have choices.” A Christian does not have his own choices. Is his lifestyle one of obeying Jesus. He needs to obey Jesus.
Come back to God today . Return. The devil has trapped you on your journey with Jesus. He is holding you captive through sin. Release yourself and ask Jesus help.
The devil stops people receiving the Holy Spirit. If you do receive Him the devil will come to make you doubt and not continue to believe. We have had two years of not meeting together. Our souls have become dry. One can feel like giving up. Today is a new day Like Paul said to Timothy stir up the gift within you. Pray in the Spirit again snd don’t let the devil stop you. Resist him and he will flee from you in Jesus name.
Do a check list. Look back and remember when did you heart grow cold? Return to God . Jesus healed everyone who asked him when He was on earth. Ask today for healing. He is the same yesterday and forever. Ask for The Holy Spirit. God will not give you a snake or a st
