“Do Not Quench the Spirit”

Tuesday, 13 August 2013

Do not quench the Spirit —1 Thessalonians 5:19
 
The voice of the Spirit of God is as gentle as a summer breeze— so gentle that unless you are living in complete fellowship and oneness with God, you will never hear it. The sense of warning and restraint that the Spirit gives comes to us in the most amazingly gentle ways. And if you are not sensitive enough to detect His voice, you will quench it, and your spiritual life will be impaired. This sense of restraint will always come as a “still small voice” (1 Kings 19:12), so faint that no one except a saint of God will notice it.

Beware if in sharing your personal testimony you continually have to look back, saying, “Once, a number of years ago, I was saved.” If you have put your “hand to the plow” and are walking in the light, there is no “looking back”— the past is instilled into the present wonder of fellowship and oneness with God (Luke 9:62 ; also see 1 John 1:6-7). If you get out of the light, you become a sentimental Christian, and live only on your memories, and your testimony will have a hard metallic ring to it. Beware of trying to cover up your present refusal to “walk in the light” by recalling your past experiences when you did “walk in the light” (1 John 1:7). When-ever the Spirit gives you that sense of restraint, call a halt and make things right, or else you will go on quenching and grieving Him without even knowing it.

Suppose God brings you to a crisis and you almost endure it, but not completely. He will engineer the crisis again, but this time some of the intensity will be lost. You will have less discernment and more humiliation at having disobeyed. If you continue to grieve His Spirit, there will come a time when that crisis cannot be repeated, because you have totally quenched Him. But if you will go on through the crisis, your life will become a hymn of praise to God. Never become attached to anything that continues to hurt God. For you to be free of it, God must be allowed to hurt whatever it may be.

How Do I Know God

The Theology of Resting in God

Monday, 12 August 2013

Why are you fearful, O you of little faith? —Matthew 8:26

When we are afraid, the least we can do is pray to God. But our Lord has a right to expect that those who name His name have an underlying confidence in Him. God expects His children to be so confident in Him that in any crisis they are the ones who are reliable. Yet our trust is only in God up to a certain point, then we turn back to the elementary panic-stricken prayers of those people who do not even know God. We come to our wits’ end, showing that we don’t have even the slightest amount of confidence in Him or in His sovereign control of the world. To us He seems to be asleep, and we can see nothing but giant, breaking waves on the sea ahead of us.

“. . . O you of little faith!” What a stinging pain must have shot through the disciples as they surely thought to themselves, “We missed the mark again!” And what a sharp pain will go through us when we suddenly realize that we could have produced complete and utter joy in the heart of Jesus by remaining absolutely confident in Him, in spite of what we were facing.

There are times when there is no storm or crisis in our lives, and we do all that is humanly possible. But it is when a crisis arises that we instantly reveal upon whom we rely. If we have been learning to worship God and to place our trust in Him, the crisis will reveal that we can go to the point of breaking, yet without breaking our confidence in Him.

We have been talking quite a lot about sanctification, but what will be the result in our lives? It will be expressed in our lives as a peaceful resting in God, which means a total oneness with Him. And this oneness will make us not only blameless in His sight, but also a profound joy to Him.

Prayer to God, Jesus Christ And The Holy Spirit Through Daily Prayer

Friday, 9 August 2013

Important Christians might say ''what is this? prayer to God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit through daily prayer, don't people know how to pray to God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit through daily prayer? why will someone spend so much time to write about something as simple as this.'' Well, sometimes, the simple things are the things that need to be writen about for they are often overlooked and yes there are people out there who need to know how to pray to God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit through daily prayer. If you want to criticise or appreciate the writer for a job well done, then do it later, for now read on...
The reason for this article prayer to God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit through daily prayer is to help Christians understand how to do prayer and to lay some emphasis on neglected but very vital areas of prayer if they will need to get results.

Daily Prayer

In its simplicity this is the type of prayer you do daily. This is very important because, in the prayer Jesus Christ himself thought us was ''Give us this day our daily bread.'' So each day, there is a new anointing to carry you through that day. And you don't have to do it in a boring and confusing manner. Do it like this.

Morning Prayer: Pray immediately you get out of Bed
Evening Prayer: Pray before you get to Bed
Night Prayer: Best between 12:00 - 2:00 or any other time convinient for you.
During the day, you can pray short prayers in your heart especailly for other people.
Here comes the often neglected part of prayer. Most believers neglect praying to the Holy Spirit, if you are found here, then you are missing alot. Ever wunder who ressurected Jesus Christ from the grave, it was the Holy Spirit. Yes, that is how important the Holy Spirit is. And maybe it will also interest you to know the Holy Spirit is a person and has an image, you! Pray to him, He wants to hear you too.

Someone who have been in the Christian faith for sometime reading this might say ''this article, prayer to God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit through daily prayer is for new Christians,'' didn't you just learn the importance of praying to the Holy spirit? My friends praying regularly, constantly and consistently will pay off, trust me.

Prayer in the Father’s Honor

Thursday, 8 August 2013

. . . that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God —Luke 1:35

If the Son of God has been born into my human flesh, then am I allowing His holy innocence, simplicity, and oneness with the Father the opportunity to exhibit itself in me? What was true of the Virgin Mary in the history of the Son of God’s birth on earth is true of every saint. God’s Son is born into me through the direct act of God; then I as His child must exercise the right of a child— the right of always being face to face with my Father through prayer. Do I find myself continually saying in amazement to the commonsense part of my life, “Why did you want me to turn here or to go over there? ’Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?’ ” (Luke 2:49). Whatever our circumstances may be, that holy, innocent, and eternal Child must be in contact with His Father.

Am I simple enough to identify myself with my Lord in this way? Is He having His wonderful way with me? Is God’s will being fulfilled in that His Son has been formed in me (see Galatians 4:19), or have I carefully pushed Him to one side? Oh, the noisy outcry of today! Why does everyone seem to be crying out so loudly? People today are crying out for the Son of God to be put to death. There is no room here for God’s Son right now— no room for quiet, holy fellowship and oneness with the Father.

Is the Son of God praying in me, bringing honor to the Father, or am I dictating my demands to Him? Is He ministering in me as He did in the time of His manhood here on earth? Is God’s Son in me going through His passion, suffering so that His own purposes might be fulfilled? The more a person knows of the inner life of God’s most mature saints, the more he sees what God’s purpose really is: to “. . . fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ . . .” (Colossians 1:24). And when we think of what it takes to “fill up,” there is always something yet to be done.

The New Life in Jesus Christ

Thursday, 1 August 2013

We are going to talk about this by answering the question what is the new life in Jesus Christ?'' The writer is not confused talking about the new life in Jesus Christ as most of you must have thought at this point. There is actually a new life in Jesus Christ. ''what is the old life?'' That is the big question now isn't it. Well for those of you who need a clarification, you will get one, don't you worry. The old life is known Biblically as the Worldly life. This is the type of life you live doing things like Furnication, even adaltry (one night stand), smoking, drinking... Just to name a few. while doing all these things, you thought that was life, then came the time when you started looking for love, joy and peace but could not get them because all these things had a temendous negative impact on your person. Because this things will either make you an angry, bitter person or even a hater. If you have come to that stage of your life that you are looking for love, peace and joy, then this is for you, if you have not, then still read on, you will need it later.
 
So, with all that said what is the new life in Jesus Christ? Jesus said ''come to me all that are heavily loaded and I will give you rest.'' Take note of the underlined words because that is where ''The New Life in Jesus Christ'' lies. If you look at the word ''all'' you will notice it is an open invitation, it has no restrictions and you have the right to either accept or decline it. This is the reason it was the first word that Jesus used to address His direct speech to the World. He could have as well said ''I will give rest to all those that are heavily loaded.'' What he wanted to bring to our attention was that, He does not care about our skin colour, nationality... but you will need to accept the invitation, then he can take away your heavy load, and then He can give you rest. Rest here means peace, joy and love and it is exactly what you are looking for. Jesus said ''peace I give you, not as the world gives.'' You will find out that, while you were doing or still doing all those worldly things, there will be some kind of peace, but that is temporary, it will soon leave you.
 
what is the new life in Jesus Christ? It is about Jesus taking away your heavy load in exchange for His peace, joy and love. Isn't that the most lovingly thing you can ever get. No wunder the Bible said ''greater is no love than this that a man will lay down his life for his friends.'' If you do not know, yes Jesus died and ressurecetd to ensure these things come to you. But you will have to accept the invitation first.
