You NEED the Holy Spirit
It is absolutely essential for a believer to have the Holy Spirit of Christ dwelling in them. Jesus Christ, our Master, was crucified and He died, but after three days the Holy spirit raised Him from the dead. The apostle Paul writes that if that same SPIRIT that raised Christ from the dead dwells in you, then that SPIRIT, the Holy Spirit, will also quicken your mortal body, will also raise you from the dead. It is therefor vitally important that we have the Holy Spirit of Christ dwelling in us.
Jesus Christ GIVES the Holy Spirit in those who OBEY Him. He promised the Holy Spirit that will teach us and will guide us into all truth. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Christ, Christ WITH us, Christ IN US, guiding us, comforting us, encouraging us and leading us into a life that is pleasing to Him, into fruitfulness, into doing the will of God and if He dwells in us and remains with us until the very end then He will also raise us from the dead.
The Holy Spirit was promised for every one who believes in Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit was given on the day of Pentecost. The requirement for receiving the Holy Spirit is that we OBEY Jesus Christ, that we SUBMIT to Him, REPENT, and be BAPTIZED IN WATER and SEEK Him with all our heart. Seek that infilling with the Holy Spirit, Christ dwelling in us and He will baptize us in the Holy Spirit like He did to the first believers on the day of Pentecost and thereafter. They spoke in other tongues. He gave miraculous tongues by which they can speak mysteries to God and the Spirit of God can pray through them and in them. Also that the Spirit will guide them and give them power to be witnesses, to endure and do the will of God, to remain with Him and IN Him until the very end.
It is the will of Jesus Christ to let His Spirit dwell in us. It is Emmanuel, Christ in us. If we do not have the Spirit of Christ, the Holy Spirit, then we are spiritually dead. we have to be born again of water, through baptism, and of the Spirit of God, through the Holy Spirit baptism. Then we have to FOLLOW the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit must ABIDE in us, stay in us. we must RESERVE ourselves as a temple of the Holy Spirit for Him to dwell in and we have to go after Jesus every day, seek His guidance, follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit and endure with Him until the very end or else we do not have life in us.
We need the LIFE GIVING Holy Spirit of Christ. We cannot go without Him.
May Jesus bless you.
