"The Promise"

 

“The Promise”

 

Words of Jesus: “And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Counselor to be with you forever.  He is the Spirit of Truth.  The world is unable to receive Him because it doesn’t see Him or know Him.  But you do know Him, because He remains with you and will be in you.”    John 14:16-17

 

While He was together with them, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for the Father’s promise. “This,” He said, “is what you heard from Me.       Acts 1:4

 

On the Day of Pentecost, as the Disciples of Jesus were gathered together in Jerusalem, in an upper room, they heard what sounded like a mighty, rushing wind from Heaven, and it filled the whole house.  Then tongues, like flames of fire appeared to them and rested on them. Then they were ALL filled with the Holy Spirit, God’s PROMISE.

 

In my opinion, I believe that the GREATEST PROMISE, that God has given mankind, other than their SALVATION, is the GIFT of His HOLY SPIRIT.  I shudder to think what trying to live a CHRISTIAN LIFE in such wicked surroundings, would be like, if it would even be POSSIBLE. 

 

The PROMISE of God’s Holy Spirit, which indwells EVERY TRUE BELIEVER, is their LIFE-LINE to their Heavenly Father.  It is through the WORK of the Spirit that mankind is drawn to the SAVIOR for the SALVATION of their souls.  And it is the Holy Spirit that brings CONVICTION to the HEART of the Believer.  It is the Holy Spirit that makes it possible for them to be able to have a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with the RIGHTEOUS, HOLY GOD of this Universe.

 

He guides the Believer through a Jungle of Wickedness, Depravation, Rebellion, and Despair, with PROTECTION, CORRECTION, LOVE, COMPASSION and ASSURANCE, all at their beckon call.  Jesus KNEW what it would be like for the TRUE BELIEVER, and PROMISED He would NOT LEAVE them ALONE to try to LIVE in and under such HARSH, and UNBEARABLE circumstances. 

 

Because of God’s IMMENSE LOVE for His Children, those who have TRULY GIVEN their HEARTS and LIVES to Him, by ACCEPTING His Son, Jesus, as their LORD and SAVIOR, they have UNENDING access to His Holy Spirit.  If you are STRUGGLING with your lifestyle, because you have REJECTED Jesus Christ, and in all actuality, are NOT God’s Child, the Child of God is one who has given their HEART and LIFE to Him, and has been adopted into His Family.   In order to do that you MUST be willing to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. Then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and receive His PROMISE of His HOLY SPIRIT.  And start LIVING by the SPIRIT and NOT by the FLESH. And receive HEAVEN as your ETERNAL HOME. Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
