You’ll never find the Holy Spirit in these end times church houses. They are full of the devil’s spirit, but not the spirit spoken of in 1 Thessalonians 5:19. If you want to be filled with God’s Holy Spirit then you have to spend time in God’s Word, a KING JAMES, not some preachers version of a Bible, not some re-interpretation of the Bible. That “Message” bible (or the NIV?) must have been the beginning of a swarm of twisted books being marketed as “bibles.” -Admin-
Do not quench the Spirit. 1 Thessalonians 5:19 (NKJV)
The fire of the Spirit burns continuously to work the will of the Father. However, His flame is not often seen in our behavior because of a “quenching” of His activity. The Spirit can be resisted. His promptings can be ignored. His inner stirrings can be doused.
How do you quench the Spirit?
The Spirit is quenched when you fail to spend consistent time in God’s Word. The Scriptures were authored by men under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. The primary way that the Spirit communicates to you is through the Bible. How can you hear His voice, understand His ways, or carry out His desires if you neglect His Word?
The Spirit is also quenched when you stubbornly cling to a bad habit, a willful sin, or a carnal desire. The Spirit seeks to make you holy. That is why He is the Holy Spirit. Holiness, however, is not attained unilaterally. It involves your cooperation and your obedience to His cleansing and conviction.
Are you resisting Him at a point? Have you turned a deaf ear to His urgings? His fullness, blessing, and power are yours the instant you obey.
