DOES THE HOLY SPIRIT INDWELL YOUR SPIRIT?

The spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord, searching all his innermost parts. Proverbs 20:27

This Scripture indicates that spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord. What is missing until we are born again by the Holy Spirit is the oil to fuel the lamp. In fact, our spirit cannot function as God intended without the Holy Spirit. A lamp needs oil to provide light.

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16

Andrew Farley shares New Covenant promises that will assure you of your union with the Spirit and address whether you need to ask for more spiritual blessings. Old Testament references to a double blessing or double anointing of the Holy Spirit might leave you wondering if you have all of the Spirit. Should born-again Christians today ask for more of the Spirit, a fresh anointing, or worry about the Spirit of God coming and going? Andrew provides the answer in this short video.

LET US BE THE LIGHT TO TRANSFORM OUR CITIES

The world is in darkness

As prophesied there would be a great falling away in the church in the “last days”. Already, apostasy is rife across denominations (more like demonations). When answering the disciples questions on His second coming, Jesus said, “Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.Matthew 24:11-12

“We know that we are from God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.” 1 John 5:19 

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12

Jesus is the light of the world!

Jesus fulfilled Isaiah’s prophecy “the people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light and for those dwelling in the region and shadow of death, on them a great light has dawned.” Matthew 4:16

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” 2 Corinthians 4:6

In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” “Jesus cried out and said, I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness.’’ John 1: 4-5

Again, Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life.’” John 12:468:12

Venerate Jesus by releasing His kingdom of light on earth!

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord.” Ephesians 5:8-10

The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armour of light.” Romans 13:12 

We are to be mature, steadfast, joyful, spiritual watchmen with our eyes fixed on Jesus so we see and align with what our Heavenly Father is doing.

“But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” Hebrew 5:14 

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”  Romans 12:21

Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? 1 John 5:5

For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.” 1 John 5:4

Let us be the light to transform our cities.
