Seeking the Holy Spirit Gifts

Many Christian believers are seeking the Holy Spirit Gifts, some out of  ignorance, others do it for selfish reasons. Many seek salvation, just because they don't want to go to hell. Their motives are not pure and they will receive nothing from God.

Jesus never commanded us to seek His gifts. He promises His gifts freely to those who love and obey Him, those who seek for His kingdom and His righteousness. Jesus will not withhold one single good thing from those who love and follow Him. He even gives before they ask. He knows what we need before we ask and He delights in giving to His children.

Those who believe in Jesus to have eternal life will receive nothing, because they just want salvation. They do not care for Jesus. They do not seek Him, nor to do His will. They just want His benefits for free. They refuse to work for Him and His kingdom. They call it works based salvation, but they forget that faith without works is dead. We do not work for salvation, we work for Jesus and His kingdom because we love and obey Him.

Many church leaders want the gifts of the Holy Spirit in order to attract new members, to build their churches and collect more money from deceived believers. Many believers have been taught that the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues is a guarantee of salvation, which it is not. It is promised to ALL those who seek to follow and obey Jesus and be in close communion with Him. It is however, not a guarantee of salvation. Many who have received Holy Spirit gifts will end up in hell because they turned from Jesus. Many of them operate churches and practice religion but they do not follow and obey Jesus. They are running after their own selfish desires, seeking to gratify and glorify themselves.

God does not take back His gifts that He has given. His gifts and His calling are irrevocable, but those who turn from Jesus will perish.

Jesus requires obedience. He requires that we love Him, seek Him, go after Him, endure with Him and do His will, so that we glorify Him. He freely gives His gifts, His Spirit and His guidance, He makes His power flow through those who truly love and follow Him. They do not seek the Gifts. They seek the Giver, Jesus Christ and He satisfies their soul. He gives them LIFE, streams of Living Water flowing through them, that spring up into eternal life.

Seek Jesus, seek His approval and His communion and you will not want, you will not come short of any good thing. Jesus Christ is the Source, He is Lord, worship and obey Him.

May Jesus bless you.
