Did you know Christians are "Partakers of the Holy Ghost?" Yes, Christians taste the heavenly gift of right-standing with God. Christians are given a new nature that's clean and moral. To partake in the Holy Ghost means God puts something within the heart of man that has an experience with Christ. That something is holiness of character that comes from the power of God's Divine Grace. Yes, God puts within man a holiness of heart and conduct that fallen man cannot produce without trust in the redemptive work of Christ. That holiness of character is the outflow of Calvary in the heart and life of a believer in Christ. Men are enlightened to Christ when they hear the truth of the Gospel message.
Heb 6:4-5...For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,
Men and women who believe and trust in the person of Christ "partake" in a holy nature produced by the Divine Grace of God.
2 Peter 1:4...that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature,
That's why the Bible calls Christians, "Holy Brethren and partakers of the heavenly call".
Heb 3:1...Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling,
The holy heart is received when man finds forgiveness for his sins through the death of a Saviour on the cross. The holy heart shows man's recognition and subjection to the authority of a living Christ in the Throneroom. The holy heart is a God given nature that far outweighs the sinful nature of man because the power of God is behind it. Christ is behind the divine nature as He regenerates the soul and gives man the God given power to do right. That God given power to do right by far outweighs the power to do wrong because Christ's holiness is behind it! Behind fallen man is a sinful nature that man inherited from the fall of Adam. Behind a saved man is the power of God that created the world, Promised a Saviour, the raised Christ from the dead! Yes, God given holiness of heart from the new nature is far greater than the unholy nature of fallen man. The Holy Spirit says so and so does the Bible!
1 John 4:4..."greater" is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
This writer advocates enlightenment to Christ by the preaching of the Gospel according to the Prophets! This writer advocates holiness and purity of heart in a religious world that does not believe Christians can live without sin! God honors heart purity and right living! Many people do not realize that Christ can provide man with enough power from salvation to live holy and right in the eyes of God. Christ is behind the clean heart! Christ is behind holy living! The Spirit of God that we partake in teaches holy living! The Bible teaches holy living! So does this writer! That's the purpose of this Blog!
God bless you all! I love you!
