Have you received the Comforter?

The unbeliever, the person
who is not born again of the Spirit of God, has no relationship with
Jesus Christ. He cannot sense Jesus, He cannot hear Him and He cannot
see the kingdom of God, but Jesus promised the Comforter, the Holy
Spirit, to be with and in those who believe in Him and who obey Him;
those who obey the gospel of Jesus Christ repent and are baptized in
water and who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Master. Jesus
promised to give in them the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, to be with
them forever, to guide them and to teach them.
The world, the unbeliever,
cannot receive the Holy Spirit. It is only those who obey Jesus
Christ that can receive the Holy Spirit, the presence of Jesus, His
Spirit with Him forever, to guide and teach and coach them, to tell
them things to come, to make them fruitful for the kingdom of God. If
we do not have the Holy Spirit, then we do not belong to Jesus
Christ. Many have received the Holy Spirit, but they have grieved the
Holy Spirit and therefore they do not sense the presence of God
anymore. They do not experience His presence anymore because they've
gone their own way. They disobeyed Him they disregarded Him. They
have cut themselves off from the presence of God. If they repent of
His sin and of their wrongful ways and go back to Jesus with remorse,
with a contrite heart, then He will restore them to His presence, but
if we keep on grieving the Holy Spirit then we will end up in
damnation with the children of disobedience. Most believers never
received the Holy Spirit. Many of them do not even know about the
Holy Spirit, the Comforter, that Jesus promised to those who love Him
and who obey Him. He did not promise us a Bible or other people to
comfort us. He promised His own spirit, the Holy Spirit, to be with
us to Comfort and to guide us.
Have you received the Holy
Spirit? Are you being comforted and led by the Holy Spirit? Those who
are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God.
They are led by the Comforter. They experienced Jesus Christ, the
presence of God, with them all the time. Have you received the Holy
Spirit? Does the Comforter abide with you? Does He live with you? Do
you listen to Him and do you obey Him? Do you experience the presence
of Jesus with you all the time?
May Jesus bless you.
