False Fire and Eventual Apostasy without the Holy Ghost

Without a passion for holiness and the infilling of the Holy Ghost, the most passionate evangelism is just false fire and eventual apostasy.

Jesus Christ sent the Holy Spirit for a reason.

You can try your hardest, and have great character and intentions, but you cannot achieve the perfect will of God without the Holy Ghost. Why?

Simple. The Holy Ghost’s desire is to glorify Jesus the Son extremely and magnificently and completely. It takes God to glorify God, so in order to do this He needs to find a human that He can influence 100% of their soul. His earnest envy is to possess our souls completely.

John 16: 13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

James 4:5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?

Lust and envy are usually bad words. But when it’s the Holy Spirit, His lust and envy is to dwell within us humans completely so that He can glorify the Son to the maximum.

3 people you don’t want to partner with in ministry, unless it involves teaching, preaching, and giving them MORE of the Holy Spirit:

people that resist the Holy Spirit (Acts 7:51). They don’t believe in the Holy Ghost and choose to hold on to a dead man/system from the past instead of the living, speaking, gift-giving God of today. They identify themselves by a name brand rather than Jesus. This can happen in any type of church, even Spirit-filled. For some people the Holy Spirit is someone they watch but they don’t touch.

people that claim to be filled with the Holy Ghost; but despise holiness. God is Holy because His purpose is transcendent and it is comes from Himself. The iPad gets its purpose from Apple. The Mustang gets its purpose from Ford. God gets His purpose from within Himself, because He IS Holy. Anything else that wants to be holy must be “separated to Gods purpose and glory.” the iPad that is used strictly for evangelism and ministry is a holy iPad. The mustang that Paul used to ride around and push the gospel and is a holy Mustang. The fish that was used to feed Jesus Christ is a holy mackerel.

People that despise the idea of every decision, action, relationship being separated from sin unto God’s purpose are people to avoid partnering with. If someone thinks that holiness is too extreme they are useless in the kingdom of God.

people that have the Holy Ghost; but have desires that are different than what the Holy Ghost desires. The Holy Ghost desires 100% obedience for the glorification of God. A packed out building with halfway obedient souls is useless to the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is not out to make fans, He’s here to possess souls and create disciples that burn for the Son of God. Making lots of money but not saying what God wants said is a loss, not a profit.

The moment you decide not to say the difficult thing that the Holy Ghost wants said in order to keep the favor of man is the moment you become useless and detrimental to spiritual progress.

3 people you want to be, partner with, and fellowship with in ministry:

People that desire gifts and movements of the Spirit, use them, and are not ashamed of them. I’m not talking about crazy unbiblical stuff, just the things that are used to glorify Jesus.

people that love the Holy portion of the Holy Spirit. People that love unbelievers and spreading the gospel and love, but still know how to be separate in lifestyle and avoid agreement with unbelievers in fellowship and ministry. People that don’t mind turning the TV or the movie or the music off when it’s unholy and doesn’t fit within Gods purpose.

people that desire what the Holy Spirit desires. People that believe harder for revival fire than for profits and applause. People that will say yes to what God wants and reach a few with the whole truth rather than reach many with the half truth. People that put the honor of God only above the honor of men, and are willing to look like failures to obey God rather than successfully half-stepping.

What God Wants:
The Holy Ghost would rather have 100% of 5 people than 50% of 5000 people. Because the 5 people will produce after their own kind, and spread the fire of God. It’s a cold world, and any soul less than 100% full of the Holy Ghost will eventually go down to 0. Spiritually it’s just like the 2nd law of thermodynamics.

But God is rich in grace and loves to give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him, because Jesus paid the price and He wants us to be fully His.

This is the Good News:

Our Father doesn’t give the Holy Spirit based on the ministry brand name, He gives the Holy Spirit to those that ask and do not resist:

Luke 11:13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

The Word and the Spirit Work TOGETHER to Glorify Jesus Christ

Without the Holy Ghost you are spiritually blind as a bat, no matter how many bible scriptures you know. Without revelation of the Word you are leading people to destruction, no matter how anointed with the Holy Ghost, or gifted you think you are, or how many people listen to you.

Jesus is the Word, and He is the passion of the Holy Spirit. Eyes on Him keeps you going in His direction forever.

The Beauty of Holiness without Bondage

The Beauty of Holiness without Bondage

The Balance of the Word of God and the Spirit of God with Eyes on Jesus Christ helps you to walk in Holiness without legalism and bondage to the precepts of men.

Jesus warned us of religious leaders who teach their principles and precepts as doctrines (Matt 15). There are many teachers who aren’t filled with the Holy Ghost, so they try to force the principles of the word without the Spirit of the Word. The bible says that the letter killeth, but the Spirit gives life (2nd Corinthians 3).

When you focus on the heart of God, you meditate the Word and the Spirit of God. You are not averse to the supernatural elements of the Holy Spirit – dreams, visions, tongues and interpretation of tongues, prophecy, word of wisdom, word of knowledge, healing, special faith, etc… because you know that God is pouring out His Spirit on all flesh. However, you judge all spiritual circumstances by the Scripture.
The Scripture helps you with the Spirit, and the Spirit gives life to the Scripture so that you can walk in love with God and your neighbor.
If you don’t have the Holy Spirit helping you obey scripture, all you have is dead principles, failure, and abuse.
If you don’t have Revelation of the Scriptures, all you have is your ignorance and foolish disobedience, with satanic deception.
You need the fullness of both the Word of God, and the Spirit of God to walk in the Beauty of Holiness without Bondage, and the Truth will Make you Free to Walk in the Spirit of Liberty and UNSTOPPABLE LOVE.
Clear Spiritual Vision, Effective Faith through trials, and the Pure and clean Righteousness of Jesus Christ will be in your possession if you pray for it (Revelations 3:18).
The earth is waiting for the True Sons of God to show up! They won’t be making excuses and cop-outs, but they will manifest God’s Judgements, Love, and Powerful Faith in the earth. Even in suffering, they will be the glorious fragrance of Christ’s Victory.
Romans 8

4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

The Fire, The Wind, and The Rain: Holy Ghost on YOU!

The Fire, The Wind, and The Rain of the Holy Ghost on YOU!

What did God do at The Call? He did a whole lot… it won’t be until we get to heaven till we find out the full impact of what happened.

Many times supernatural miracles will be visible, but there is always a spiritual application as well. As a matter of fact, the spiritual component is often much more important. I’m so excited about what is soon to come, because spiritual violence always works. If we all continue to do the things that God dropped on our hearts at The Call, our cities will be transformed very soon – with the Fire, the Wind, and the Rain of God.

The Fire of God Fell:

– one men’s bible study I know decided to do a 3 day fast every month hereafter.

– one guy I know in another city decided to do a corporate fasting and prayer event.

– one group I know decided to do a 24 hour prayer meeting several times a year

That’s fire! That’s the fire of the Holy Spirit giving people a passion to seek God first. God’s fire is consuming His people.

14 Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them. Jeremiah 5

Winds of the Holy Ghost are blowing:

– I know people that were called to move geographically.

– I have a friend who is starting a tri-city bible study.

– Many people are moving their ministries to the next level, or to a new place.

The wind of the Holy Spirit is blowing, and He is sending people into the place that He has called them! Lot’s of God’s people are making moves and changing.

8 The wind bloweth where it listeth , and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh , and whither it goeth : so is every one that is born of the Spirit.  John 3

The Rain of the Holy Spirit:

– The rain of God dropped on everyone present. Everybody that I know was there had a noticeable refreshing of God.

– Many people were encouraged to step deeper into ministering with their gifts, and their vision was refreshed.

– I heard a testimony of one person who’s whole household was saved the day after the Call. He wasn’t even there. He’s a secular rapper and he just decided to call on Jesus and get saved.

19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted , that your sins may be blotted out , when the times of refreshing shall come *from the presence of the Lord;  Acts 3

Rain Brings Corn, Wine, and Oil

23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. 24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil. Joel 2

The Rain of God represents the vision, and the words that He drops on your heart. When you recieve it, it leads to growth of corn (sometimes called wheat), wine, and oil in your life. The Corn represents the teaching and instruction that comes from the Holy Spirit. The Wine represents the joy and confidence that comes to your emotions when you meditate and process the instruction from God. The Oil represents the boldness and power to accomplish what God has shown you.

14 That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil. Deuteronomy 11

Let’s keep it moving for the King! May God continue to send Fire, send Wind, and send the rain of His Spirit.
