You cannot fake the Holy Spirit Guidance
There is one requirement that makes you a son of God, a child of God and that is, that you must be led by the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ said:"My sheep LISTEN to My VOICE and they FOLLOW Me." The apostle Paul wrote in Romans 8:14 "Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God."
In order to be a child of God you must FOLLOW the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Many believers claim to have the Holy Spirit. Many claim to have been baptized in the Holy Spirit but very few FOLLOW the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Many will tell you that "God told me this" and "God told me that," and they want to influence other people to support what they claim God told them but if you follow Jesus Christ then YOU yourself have to be very sure that you have heard from Him, that you are being led by the Holy Spirit, because YOU have to OBEY, you have to FOLLOW, you have to DO what the Holy Spirit tells YOU to do regardless of what other people think or say; regardless of the OPINIONS of other believers. If you DO what the Holy Spirit guides you into doing, what God tells you to do then the world would call you CRAZY. Most believers will run away from you, they will call you a heretic, they will hate you. They will fear you, they will despise you like they did with Jesus Christ. They did not believe that He was the Son of God, they did not believe that He was Messiah, they crucified Him! The religious people crucified Him.
If you are indeed led by the Holy Spirit, the religious people will reject you, they will hate you, they will persecute you. You cannot FAKE the guidance of the Holy Spirit. You have to be very sure that you have heard from God and you must make sure that you OBEY Him when He speaks to you because if you do not obey Him you cannot be following Him.
The righteous man will live by faith and if he withdraws God will have no pleasure in him. If you follow Jesus Christ you HAVE to FOLLOW and OBEY the guidance of the Holy Spirit. He who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is not worthy of the kingdom of God.
Are you truly a son of God? Have you received the Holy Spirit? Are you following the guidance of the Holy Spirit regardless of what other people say, whether they support you or not? If you follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit you will find yourself on your own, alone, most of the time because very few people are willing to TRUST and GO WITH Jesus Christ. You cannot fake the guidance of the Holy Spirit. You have to gird your loins and GO where Jesus sends you and DO what He tells you to do, when He sends you. that is what makes you a son of God.
Are you a son of God? May Jesus bless you.
