We Must Receive The Holy Ghost. PERIOD!


Shared by Apostle James R Winfree Sr,/ I Owe you All GOD'S Love and The Truth Of Jesus Christ.


We can only receive the Holy Ghost in Jesus Name, and we must Obey Him. The Bible notes several roles the Holy Spirit plays in the lives of Jesus Believers today. First, the Holy Spirit provides conviction of sin to all Believers and Sinners. John 16:8 notes, "And when He [The Holy Spirit] comes, He will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment."


For Believers in Christ, the Holy Spirit works in additional ways. One of these roles is to serve as a Helper and Comforter. John 14:16-17 records Jesus saying, "And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him." The Greek word translated as "Helper" or "Comforter"  refers to one who is called alongside another, providing the idea of a guide or encouraged during times of need. This takes place as GOD'S Spirit indwells the Believer in Jesus Christ from the point of Salvation (Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20).


An additional role of the Holy Spirit is to guide the believer into truth. John 16:13 reads, "When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth." Rather than depending on our human reasoning, we have a Supernatural Teacher guide in the form of GOD'S indwelling Holy Spirit.


Further, the Holy Spirit helps Christ Believers to glorify the Lord. John 16:14 reveals, "He will glorify Me, for He will take what is Mine and declare it to you." We have a desire to worship the Lord because GOD'S Holy Spirit lives within us as Believers in and on The Lord Jesus Christ.


For Believers, the Holy Spirit also gives special gifts. First Corinthians 12, Romans 12:3-8, and 1 Peter 4:10-11 reveal the names of many gifts GOD'S Holy Spirit provides to Jesus Believers. Each Believer has at least one (1 Corinthians 12:7), and each child of GOD is specifically gifted for the acts of service GOD has prepared for him or her (Ephesians 2:10). The gifts are given to allow the church to work together to meet needs, make disciples of Jesus Christ Only, and glorify GOD our heavenly Father.


Yes, GOD'S Holy Spirit also enables Jesus Believers to produce the fruit of the Holy Spirit. Galatians 5:22-23 shares, "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things, there is no law." Without GOD'S Spirit, people are unable to produce fruitful lives that reflect the desires of GOD our Father in Jesus Christ.


The Holy Spirit indwells us as Jesus Believers. In addition to the many roles He plays in our lives, He seals us as belonging to Christ our LORD (see Ephesians 1:13-14). The Holy Spirit is the person is Jesus Christ in Spirit who lives within us in our time on earth and teaches us to truly know and follow Jesus Christ for in Him All His Fullness Dwell. Amen.


We Are Leading All Souls To GOD Our Blessed Savior!
