The Holy Spirit

Who is the Holy Spirit?

Author: Linda Dipman

Tori and I had gone to church to pray for healing over her heart. Her doctor warned her that she was endanger of suddenly dying of a massive heart attack. Urgently we had come to church believing that a miracle was her only hope of survival. We sat down in the sanctuary and I placed my hands over her heart. A supernatural warmth flowed into our bodies and ignited my hands turning them red and hot.  I felt a trembling within and suddenly I felt the Holy Spirit take up residence inside my body. The Spirit came lovingly and created a healing power that flowed within Tori's body putting her heart into remission.

Over the years I have recalled many times the day I met the Holy Spirit.  It was a time when God's will became my life purpose. I wanted to know my Heavenly Father and I actively pursued knowledge through my Bible and religious history books. I was changed into a different person who put God number one in my life. In my pursuit to learn about God I read stories in the Bible of how the Holy Spirit worked in people's lives.

            Luke 1:13-15:  "But the angel said to him, ‘Don't be afraid, Zechariah!  God has heard your prayer, and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son.  You are to name him John.  How glad and happy you will be, and how happy many others will be when he is born!  He will be a great man in the Lord's sight.  He must not drink any wine or strong drink.  From his very birth he will be filled with the Holy Spirit,'"

            John was filled with the Holy Spirit from birth because his ministry would proceed the coming of Jesus Christ. I learned that the Holy Spirit filled John on the inside and gave him messages from God to tell the people to make their lives better.  People were cleansed from their sins through the ritual of baptism.  And when Jesus came He was baptized just like everyone else.

Luke 3: 21&22: "After all the people had been baptized, Jesus also was baptized.  While He was praying, heaven was opened, and the Holy Spirit came down upon Him in bodily form like a dove.  And a voice came from heaven, ‘You are my own dear Son.  I am pleased with you.'"

The Holy Spirit came into Jesus' life in the form of a dove and the voice of God.  Jesus immediately began His ministry. The power of the Holy Spirit gave Him the ability to heal the sick, cast out demons and to feed the hungry. It was a Spirit inside of ‘Jesus the man' that taught people all about God and how to surrender their lives to Jesus as their Savior. Jesus talked many times during His ministry about the Holy Spirit and the purpose of the Spirit. He assured his disciples that when he left them they would never be alone, the Holy Spirit would come into their lives and live with them. The Holy Spirit would then teach them God's will for their lives.  The power of the Spirit would give them the ability to heal the sick and do even greater things than Jesus. Most of all the Holy Spirit would give them the strength to overcome the evil's they would face in the world.

Acts 2:2&3: "Suddenly there was a noise from the sky which sounded like a strong wind blowing, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.  Then they saw what looked like tongues of fire which spread out and touched each person there. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to talk in other languages, as the Spirit enabled them to speak."

The Holy Spirit revealed Himself in supernatural abilities to speak languages the disciples and their followers had never learned. They were languages of Praise to God.  The Holy Spirit came with a mission to aid the children of God.  It was a mission that would help them win the battles Satan would fight against them.  It was a ministry that would teach God's children their life purpose.  It was a new way of understanding the world.  It was a knowledge they would need to know in order to win the battles against evil they would face in the world. 

When you study the works of the Holy Spirit, you are amazed at how versatile the Spirit can be. In the Old Testament Moses experienced the Holy Spirit in the burning bush that spoke to him.  Immediately Moses left everything he owned and went to Egypt to free Israel from slavery.  He was given the power to perform mighty miracles before pharaoh that destroyed Egypt.  Moses who was known to stutter became a great leader because the Spirit taught him what to say.  Moses taught the Jewish people the Laws God wanted them to know.  He led them into the Promised Land and gave them a home forever. His life became an example of what the Spirit can do when you surrender your life to God.

 The Holy Spirit has shown even a sense of humor when He stopped Balaam a prophet from cursing Israel.  The Holy Spirit entered into his donkey and it spoke to Balaam like a man, stopping the prophet from his madness. Samson encountered the Holy Spirit through his hair. He was the strongest man alive, but when his hair was cut the Holy Spirit left too. David met the Holy Spirit when Elijah anointed him with oil when he was only fourteen years old. David was given the power to slay Goliath the philistine giant with a small stone. He became the greatest king of Israel, because the Holy Spirit made him strong and gave him victory over the enemies of Israel.

It has been over twenty-five years since the Holy Spirit entered into my life.  The Spirit has stayed with me as I have faced countless battles that taught me valuable lessons of what is right and what is wrong in our world.  I cherish and love the Holy Spirit. He has given me supernatural strength and a determination to do what is right even when the world says I am wrong.  The Spirit is my best friend.  He has rescued me just in time when it seemed there was no hope.  Ask Jesus to let the Holy Spirit come into your life. The Spirit will change you from the inside out and change you into a better person.

Who is the Holy Spirit?  He is God the father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit, all wrapped up in one.  When God is in your life nothing you face in this world is too hard for you to accomplish.  The Holy Spirit will give you the power to overcome the hard things we will go through in the world.  The Holy Spirit is God. Let Him in and He will change your life forever.

It was a defining moment that helped her to look back at what she believed was true about Christianity and find biblical answers to counter the false teachings of the church against homosexuals. It is her true life story and the answers she discovered from the teachings of the Holy Spirit.  She testifies that she survived the trauma of the terrible persecution only because of her deep rooted faith in Jesus Christ as her Savior.

The Way, The Truth, The Life By Mark Baker

John 14:1 "Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.

2. "In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3. "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.
4. "And where I go you know, and the way you know.''
5. Thomas said to Him, "Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?''
6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Jesus said it plainly and to the point so that there could be no mistake about the only way to the Father. He is the way, He is the truth, and He is the Life. There are no other paths that lead to life. Whether we choose to believe this or not is a choice we all must make.

New Age religion and modernists say that there are many paths to God. Basically everyone has their own path to take, and regardless of the path it still leads to God. So regardless of the path taken you're going to get to God anyway, so what's the big deal?

This is not new, it's been around from the earliest times.

Proverbs 16:25 There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.

A serious warning is being given about choosing our own way. The way that seems right to us in the natural is not the way God has chosen for us. He has chosen the way for us to have life, and we must follow that path in order to get it. Our way regardless of how right it seems will only lead to death, wow!

There is something we must also consider. He wants us to have life. He went to great lengths to make His life available to us and He knows the path we have to take to get it. He is admonishing us that there are alternative paths that we could take, but they are not the paths that lead to life. You must know the right path if you are ever going to get to Him. If you don't know the right path then you are simply lost.

God wants us to find Him, that's why He gave us the correct path.

New age religions are saying that Jesus might be your path and He might not be your path.
If this were so, why did Jesus have to come, why did He have to die, why did He boldly declare, I am the way! Peter proclaimed this truth when being questioned by the High priest.

Acts 4:10 "let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole.
11. "This is the `stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.'
12. "Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.''

This is the truth that leads to life and makes men free. I've heard it said by people who probably didn't want to offend anyone that Jesus might be your path but He's only just one of the many paths that lead to God.

If Jesus were only one of the many paths then He Himself is lair, for He said it clearly; I am the way. You can not have it both ways. You can not call something the way and it be a lie at the same time. That just doesn't make sense no matter how you look at it. The truth is the truth and that's that.

These same people who are saying that Jesus is just one of the many ways to God just simply don't see the contradiction, or are ignoring it. There is a great contradiction here that simply can not be overlooked.

Truth is eternal and can not be changed. Again, Jesus said in

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. That's about as clear as you can get.

There is something in everyone that is searching for the truth, a deep yearning that can only be filled by finding Truth itself. Nothing else can satisfy that longing. The point is, there is truth, and God has shown us the way. I grew up in a religious background going to church but I found myself looking for something much more than organized religion in and of itself could give.

I needed something that was real. I began reading a Bible that we had laying around the house and the more I read it the more I realized I had a giant void in my life. The Holy Spirit began to convict me of my life and showed me the reality of Jesus Christ, and that He was the only way to the Father. I had a decision to make at that point. Once truth is received, you have to do something with it. Truth can not set you free until you act upon it. Truth acted upon brings the reality of the New Creation.

John 8:31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.
32. "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.''

I made the decision to give my life to Jesus, and have never regretted it. What a life changing decision. For the very first time in my life I found peace, a real peace that is truly indescribable. My whole life was changed from the inside out. This was something that religion could not do for me. it felt like the weight of the world had been lifted off of my shoulders.

This is why many Christians come across as zealots at times, it's because they've found the truth and its made them free! They found the answer to what they had been desperately looking for, not religion, but life in the most real sense of the word. I'm talking about the life of God manifested in you. Once you have been a partaker of the manifested life of God, you know the truth for yourself. You know that you know, and there is no denying it. You know there is no other way. The Holy Spirit will make Jesus so real to you that there will be no question as to what real truth is.

Christians who have been partakers of God's life just want others to know that they found the way to this life. Their heart cry is to point the way to One who is the author of this life. They just want others to know here's the way, you don't have to look any longer, maybe not realizing that they are coming across a little harsh. Once you've found the truth you just want to share it, know this same truth that has set them free will work for everybody, after all it was for everybody that Jesus came into the world to give of His life.

John 3:17 "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

And you shall know the truth, and the truth (that you know) shall make you free.''

This is why people have to be told, you can not know until you have heard. Hearing is the first step.

Romans 10:14 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?

15. And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things!''

There is a process we all must take to receive God's wonderful gift of life. We all have to hear the truth and we have to make the decision based upon what we have heard.
Going back to Romans 10 starting with vs. 8. we see the direction we have to take in order to receive this awesome gift of life.

Romans 10: 8. But what does it say? "The word is near you, even in your mouth and in your heart'' (that is, the word of faith which we preach):

9. that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
10. For with the heart one believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made to salvation.
11. For the Scripture says, "Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.''
12. For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him.
13. For "whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.''

I would like to let you know it's never too late to start on this journey. If you have said I am one of those who were burned out by religion and don't want to go down that path again, I can honestly say so was I. If you have found yourself wanting something more but are hesitant to try, then let me encourage you. There is hope and real peace in the Lord Jesus Christ.

I would like to invite you to take the next step and invite Jesus into your life. It's a 100% free gift and it's the gift that keeps on giving. God's heart cry is that all will come to Him

-- Living Bible
Deuteronomy 30:19 ``I call heaven and earth to witness against you that today I have set before you life or death, blessing or curse. Oh, that you would choose life; that you and your children might live!

If you're serious and want to experience God's life for yourself, then I urge you to earnestly pray this prayer and invite Him in, and see for yourself that God is good.

Dear Heavenly Father, I come to you in the name of Jesus. Your word says, "and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out." (Jn.6:37),

So I know You won't cast me out, but You take me in, And I thank you for it. You said in your Word, "whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.'' (Ro. 10:13).

I am calling on Your name, So I know You have saved me now, You also said, "that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made to salvation." (Ro.10:9,10).

I believe in my heart that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. I believe He was raised from the dead for my justification. And I confess Him now as my Lord, Because Your Word says, " with the heart one believes to righteousness" and I do believe with my heart, I have now become the righteousness of God in Christ. (2 Cor. 5:21),

And I am saved! Thank You, Lord!
I can now truthfully say, I see myself as a born again child of God!

Glory to God!!!! Amen.

A Day Spent With Jesus

Jesus is so real in my life. I feel His presence so close to me. This is my story about a day I spent with Jesus. Now, don't get me wrong. Jesus is always with me everyday of my life. But this day was a special day. On the morning of June 26,1997. I felt a strong over whelming joy in my spirit. I was at total peace.

I awoke from a good night sleep. I felt fully rested. And I had a strong excitement building within me. All I wanted to do is get alone with God and pray and read my Bible. So, I got on a city bus and rode it to downtown Phoenix, Az.

When the bus arrived downtown I got off at the bus station. I saw a park bench and I sat there and started praying. When I got through praying, I started watching the people. As I watched them I was starting to notice how everyone seemed to be in a big rush. They was almost bumping into each other.

I felt the Lord wanting me to pray for them, so I did.

After praying for them. I felt the Lord wanting me to go for a walk downtown. So I obeyed and headed downtown.

As I was walking I begin to pray. I prayed, Jesus show me what you see through your eyes. Let me hear what you hear. Speak to my spirit and tell me what you see.

And this is my story - A Day With Jesus

It all started off with a car driving by me. And he stopped at the stop sign. And he had his radio cranked up. I tell you the truth. His speakers was thumping heavily. I could feel the sound waves hitting me in the air.

And I heard Jesus say, to my spirit. Those who have an ear let them hear what is written.

Jesus said, that driver is having so much fun. But, he failed to see the first drop of rain fall and hit the ground. Just as the people did in the days of Noah. Those words almost frighten me.

I was absolutely shocked when I heard those words.

As I continued walking. I heard the birds just chattering away. And this verse came to me. God feeds the birds all over the world. And the birds are happy because they don't worry where their next meal will come from. Jesus spoke to my spirit and said, I will never find a bird depressed because of worrying. All I could do was laugh and say, Amen!

As I was walking. I came to a store. I went in and bought me a bottle of water and I walked back out side.

And the Lord spoke to me again. The water I give you, you will never thirst again. I said, Lord I hear you. Keep teaching me more of your ways.

As I was walking. I notice a man pushing a grocery cart. The cart had a lot of plastic bags in it. As I continued walking. I felt the Lord speak to my spirit. He ask me, what do you see? But, before I could say a word He said.

Jesus said, He sees his heart and I see his outward appearance. Jesus said, Judge not and you will not be judged. Wow, how true that is. I was looking at that persons outward appearance. I could not say anything again.

A little further down the street I came upon a New Church being built. I mean this was a huge Church and it was beautiful on the parts of the building that was already completed. And then the Lord speak to me again. He said, the money that it cost to build that building could have fed and clothed many needy people.

And the Lord showed me that is not all. He said, the money that it will take to keep it running after it is finished. Could feed even more people over and over again for many years. And He showed me a shocking revelation. He said, the name on this Church. This group of people do not even believe in Jesus. They only believe that Jesus was only a prophet. They are blind guides. He said, if they don't repent and turn away from their false belief, they will parish in Hell. That shocked me again.

Then I came up on a grave yard. And I heard the Lord speak to me and He said. Life does not end there as a lot of people teach with worldly knowledge. There is eternal life after death either in Heaven or in Hell. The Lord said, they can not try to reason it away by their thinking or wish it away by believing a lie. The fact still remains everyone will face judgement day. No one will escape it.

That was the end of my journey that day. I made it back home by supper time. I will let you know, there was another time in my life, back in 1984 I was called by God to go on a journey like that. It was when I walked with the cross city to city. Sharing the good news about Jesus Christ. I was so blessed by God as I walked on that 375 mile journey. Only God knows who was touched by me obeying His call He wanted me to go on. With the cross.

If you will just pray and listen to your spirit. God will speak to your spirit. Most of the time He reveals verses to you. He shows you what He was saying in the Bible about what you hear and see happening around you.

Rejected Because Of Jesus Christ

The true wisdom from God brings with it sorrows.

Oh my, How do I start this message. I have a heavy burden for those who have not received Jesus Christ as their Savior. My spirit cries out to them in sorrow.

The hardest part I guess to face when you get saved and become a Christian. Is when you are rejected by your friends and family, because you have become a Christian and you love Jesus Christ.

Even in my own walk with Jesus Christ. I have friends and family members who do not care to be around me because I love to share the good news about Jesus Christ. And that hurts me deeply. Like my spirit is wounded.

As I write this article it is just starting to rain. It is like tears from Heaven. Wow, this is so powerful to have witnessed this rain falling as I write this message from the heart. I also have tears in my eyes as I write this article. Because I am moved deeply as I share this message with you all. Because I feel your pain.

I will not mention the names of the family and friends that I have lost. Because of my faith in Jesus Christ. Because I am still praying for their Salvation to receive Jesus as their Savior.

But the fact still remains. I am hurt to the core of my spirit over their rejection of me because I love Jesus.

Jesus told us this would happen. So, why should we be shocked when it happens.

But I will keep on sharing the good news about Jesus Christ with everyone I can while there is still time. That is my calling. And I will stay focused on the mission that Christ has put before me to accomplish no matter what. I know what I found in Jesus is the real deal. And all the other religions are just rubbish.

One night I was in serious prayer. I was alone with God in prayer. I was asking God why don't my family and friends come to receive Jesus as their Savior. And get saved. Why, do they think I am a strange person because I care about their soul. I have been binding Satan and praying that God would open their eyes and hearts to the Gospel.

And then all of a sudden the Holy Spirit spoke to my spirit. And told me the truth that could only be revealed from God Himself. And now I know the truth to this question. Why don't people turn to Jesus for Salvation?

Here is the very words that the Holy Spirit spoke to me. Word for word. I truly believe these are words from Heaven.

(Even Jesus Christ Could Not Save Everyone. And neither will I.)

Wow, I was absolutely speechless by those words. And I wept. How true those words are.

When we get saved and receive Jesus Christ as our Savior and the Lord of our life. We get a new family. The old things have past away. And all things become new.

Even Jesus said, those who do the will of my Father, those are my Mother, Brothers and Sisters.

So, now we know the truth. Yes, with wisdom comes sorrows. But the truth will set us free.

All I can say for us all to do is. Always pray for the Salvation of your friends and family members. But, don't let them distract you from your mission that Jesus has called you to do. And that is to be a witness for Jesus Christ and share your faith in Him with everyone you meet in your life.

A Bumpy Path Ahead For This Year Of 2012

I would like to say, I truly wish everyone of you a Happy and Blessed New Year. May God Bless everyone of you and your families this year of 2012. Wow, can you believe it, it is 2012.

Here is the reason I wrote this blog message. I feel in my spirit that this year will be a rough year for a lot of people all around the world. There will be some things for us to watch for this year.

No I am not going to set dates. No one can know the day and hour of Jesus' return. I am simply going to point out some things that will take place in the not so far away future. And some things will begin to start taking place this year. It is written in the Bible, that we who are born again will notice in our spirit. The changes starting to take place in the spiritual realm. As the time slowly winds down for the old things as we know them today. And the New Heaven and New Earth comes into existence.

I believe that this year, there will be some shaking going on all around the world. Keep your eyes on Israel and the Middle East this year. This is very important. Why?

Because, Israel stands alone against the evil doers who are against them. Israel has their back against the sea. And their enemies are before them. And God stands ready at any moment to show up and defend Israel. And when this takes place the whole world will marvel and say how did Israel defeat their enemies so fast. And we will know that it was God who did it.

No one will get away with mistreating God's people. we only have to go back to just World War 2 and see that God was true to His word. And believe me, God will do it again. Watch and see for yourself. It will happen soon. And the whole world will see it take place right before their eyes.

We need to pray for Israel. Because God said in the Bible. Those who curse Israel, they will be cursed. And those who bless Israel, will be blessed. We as the body of Christ should become prayer warriors for Gods' people. Jesus wept for Israel and so should we. We need to have a heart for God's people. Jesus did and so should we.

I believe this year will be a tough year for many Jews and Christians world wide. I think that we will see Christians being attacked like never before. And the Jewish people will be rejected by more and more countries. As I said earlier, Israel will stand alone against the world, and become more and more isolated as time goes along. And so will Christians.

Listen closely, Now is the time for us to pray wholeheartedly. And get our life in order with the will of God.

Remember to keep your eyes on the Middle East and Israel. And you will also notice that disasters will take place all over the world with catastrophic results. Many people will be shocked to hear and see so much destruction taking place this year. Hold on to your seats, this year will be a bumpy ride for all of us.

This is no joke, this is the real deal.

Pray, and I mean pray, like never before and repent of your sins and seek the face of God. While it is still calm. Because a storm is headed our way. Pray while there is still time.

And one more thing that I would like to share with you, before I end this message. I need to say this, so please listen.

Salvation can not be found in a church building. It can only be found in Jesus Christ. And no where in the Bible are we told to pray to Mary or the Saints. That is the other Gospel that Jesus warned us to not to be deceived by, in the last days. This belief will become spiritual disaster for many people world wide. If they do not come out from among this lie from Satan himself.

Remember, Jesus warned us that broad is the way to destruction and many will find it. But narrow is the way that leads to Heaven and only a few will find it. In John 14:6 Jesus say that He is the way the truth and the life. And no one comes to the Father but through Him.

Notice, Jesus did not say through Mary or the Saints or Angels. So my question is? How can anyone fall for a lie so obvious as this lie from Satan, like praying to everyone but Jesus.

The Bible clearly says. For us to pray to God, in Jesus name, as the Holy spirit prays through us.

Well I will end this message here.

Jesus Loves You
