The Spirit

Hi there everyone, welcome to another edition of who’s going to be a millionaire, Just kidding. Once again it’s about our Lord and savior Jesus Christ of Nazareth, it’s all about sharing the Good News. So basically, welcome to another edition of my Blog “theslicingsword” where I share my thoughts, views, opinions on the word of God, trying to        convey a massage which most times only gets clear to me after I finish writing. However we all know that it’s not by power nor by might, but solely through the gift of the Holy Spirit.

 

I must confess that the coming chapter was a tough bone to crack, I find that the revelations, messages of the Bible are there in plain sight to see but yet so well hidden and locked away that they can be easily overlooked, not understood or rather misunderstood. At least that’s how I felt while reading this chapter, trying to understand it and catch the revelations behind it. Sometimes when one studies a normal book the knowledge just flows in, and is all sucked up. However, sometimes one just stares at the book after reading a few lines and is like “huhhhh!” Well, for me that’s how it sometimes is. One knows that there’s something there to grasp, it seems to be so clear and reachable but yet still so far away, it’s like trying to get something out of a locked box without the correct keys, like trying to grasp a sufficient amount of water with one’s bare hands while it keeps on dripping away. The logical thing to do, in such a situation would be to get the explanation from someone else who is knowledgeable in that area, read up on other books, which have better explanations, goggling it, you-tubing it and so on. However the secret to understanding the Bible, hence the mysteries of the kingdom is quite different.

 

Revelations Chapter 4 verse 1-2:

1 After this I looked, and, behold,

a door was opened in heaven: and

the first voice which I heard was as

it were of a trumpet talking with me;

which said, Come up hither, and I

will shew thee things which must be

2 And immediately I was in the

spirit: and, behold, a throne was set

in heaven, and one sat on the throne.

 

Note that in chapter one our father in heaven instructed St. John to come, in order to show him what will be and immediately after that he was in the spirit. To me this means that when one is in God’s presence, when one opens the Bible in search of God’s Voice. One has to be in the Spirit just as written above to be able to hear Gods voice and catch the revelation. For the Spirit of God is constantly taking to us sending out massages constantly but unfortunately even the best of us are too dense to catch the revelations.

 

Proverbs Chapter 8 verse 1-4:

1 Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding

put forth her voice?

2 She standeth in the top of high

places, by the way in the places of

the paths.

3 She crieth at the gates, at the entry

of the city, at the coming in at

the doors.

4 Unto you, O men, I call; and my

voice is to the sons of man.

 

Nevertheless I now ask myself such questions like: what does the spirit of God entail and how does it work. To be honest, I can’t say, neither can I claim to know the workings of the Holy Spirit. However the one thing I am 100% sure of, is that the spirit of God, in this Endtime has been poured upon mankind in abundance. It has been given freely to us, it’s just left for us to separate ourselves and seek out the Holy Spirit earnestly in faith, meekness of heart, Joy and also with wisdom and one may just find him or herself being on cloud nine, getting Goosebumps and having the urge to just start saying something, anything even if it sounds like gibberish and isn’t in anyway coherent. Just like what happened to the Disciples of our lord Jesus Christ on the day of Pentecost.

 

Acts of Apostils chapter 2: vers 1-4

1 And when the day of Pentecost

was fully come, they were all with

one accord in one place.

2 And suddenly there came a sound

from heaven as of a rushing mighty

wind, and it filled all the house

where they were sitting.

3 And there appeared unto them

cloven tongues like as of fire, and it

sat upon each of them.

4 And they were all filled with the

Holy Ghost, and began to speak with

other tongues, as the Spirit gave

them utterance.

 

The chapter also goes ahead to once again confirm the importance of the Holy Spirit in relation to the Endtime.

 

Acts chapter 2: verse 16-20

16 But this is that which was spoken

by the prophet Joel;

17 And it shall come to pass in the

last days, saith God, I will pour out

of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your

sons and your daughters shall prophesy,

and your young men shall see

visions, and your old men shall

dream dreams:

18 And on my servants and on my

handmaidens I will pour out in those

days of my Spirit; and they shall

prophesy:

19 And I will shew wonders in

heaven above, and signs in the earth

beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour

of smoke:

20 The sun shall be turned into

darkness, and the moon into blood,

before that great and notable day of

the Lord come:

 

As I said earlier I myself can’t claim to understand the workings of the Holy Spirit but in my opinion the fastest way to get the presence of God or to the Holy Spirit is through praise and worship with joy in our hearts. For if you go on further to read chapter 4 of the book of revelations to the end you will see praises and Worship is one thing our father in heaven loves and which can connect us directly to the throne of grace. Have a blessed day.
