Why most believers do not receive the Holy Spirit
Most professing Christians do not have the Holy Spirit. They never receive the Holy Spirit baptism. The reason is that they do not realize that in order to follow Jesus Christ and be in relationship with Him, we need the Holy Spirit.
The apostle Paul wrote in Romans 8:14 "those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God," they are the children of God.
Most professing Christians believe that they only need to believe in Jesus Christ. They believe that if they belong to a church and they confess Jesus Christ and they have a Bible and they quote scriptures, then they will be saved. But they are deceived.
If we do not have the Holy Spirit and we do not follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit then we have no communion with God and Jesus Christ will say yo us:"Go away I never knew you, you worker of wickedness."
If we have not received the Holy Spirit and we do not follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit we cannot be IN Christ, we cannot be in His WILL. We cannot do the works that He has prepared for us to do. We cannot be part of His kingdom, we cannot serve Him as Lord and King if we have no communication with Him. We need the Holy Spirit to be children of God. Jesus Christ promised His Holy Spirit to be IN and WITH those who OBEY Him, who SEEK Him.
Most professing Christians are not willing to obey the words of Jesus Christ. You have to REPENT, turn away form sin, submit yourself to Jesus Christ, be baptized in water, be pure and holy and live in obedience to His words and then He promised to baptize you in the Holy Spirit so that the presence of God, of Jesus Christ Himself, the Holy Spirit, will be IN and WITH us to teach and guide us.
Most professing believers do not have the Holy Spirit. they do not want the Holy Spirit because they think they do not need the Holy Spirit. They think they are saved but they are deceived.
Have you received the Holy Spirit? If you do not OBEY Jesus Christ, REPENT and be BAPTIZED in water, you WILL NOT receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit because the baptism in the Holy Spirit and the presence of the Holy Spirit in you, is only for those who truly WANT to follow Him and who OBEY Him. If we do not OBEY Him then we cannot serve Him and we will not receive the Holy Spirit.
Many have received the Holy Spirit but they disobey the Holy Spirit. They grieve the Holy Spirit. they do not bear fruit and they are cut off and they are burned, yet many believe that they are saved because they once had an encounter with Jesus Christ. We need to experience Jesus Christ every day. We need to follow Him every step of the way. We need the presence of the Holy Spirit in and with us every moment and we need to follow Him until the very end, or else we will perish.
Have you received the Holy Spirit and do you follow the guidance of the holy Spirit?
May Jesus bless you.
