Have you ever thought about being “FILLED” with God’s spirit?
I was listening to a sermon tonight by Art Braidic entitled: “Being filled with God’s Spirit” this link will allow you to hear it also.
What was brought to my mind is the fact that the 5 of the ten virgins made it through the Great Tribulation and into God’s Kingdom because they had a reservoir of God’s Holy Spirit (oil). While the other 5 did not. Brethren the reason some make it and some do not, is the amount of God’s Holy Spirit that we have inside us.
Notice that the Laodiceans believe that they have need of nothing! Could they as a group represent those 5 foolish virgins who did not have a reserve of God’s Holy Spirit.
(Rev 3:17) Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
God tells us to be filled with His spirit this is His Will for us.
(Eph 5:17) Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
(Eph 5:18) And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
Christ says ask and it will be given you. We need to show God that we want to be filled with His Holy Spirit. This is God’s will for us. And I beleive that s a key to God the Father as to who is able to be taken to a place of safety and for those who will have to draw on what Spirit they have to get through the Great Tribulation successfully.
Ask, and It Will Be Given
Mat 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
Mat 7:8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
Mat 7:9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
Mat 7:10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
Mat 7:11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
God wants us to want His spirit, to Know and Know that we Know that our success depends on the help that God gives us via His Holy Spirit.
Listen to the link that I provided to the sermon and let’s all start working on getting more of God’s Spirit while there is time.
