The word of God…

The word of God clearly states that without the spirit of Christ, you do not belong to God (Romans 8:9). Yes, Jesus loves you, he loves everyone, but that doesn’t mean you belong to Him. 
– What is the spirit of Christ?
The spirit of Christ is the Holy Ghost which was prophesied by the prophet Joel (Joel 2:28-32).
There aren’t three separate spirits. God is a spirit (John 4:24) and Jesus also prophesied that he will send a comforter, John 14:16. Some believe that there is a ”Trinity”, but Jesus said ”I will come to you”, when he spoke of the Holy Ghost (John 14:18). 

Unfortunately, some churches don’t believe you have to receive the Holy Ghost to be saved. Which is contrary to what Jesus said. Jesus told Nicodemus that he must be born of water (Jesus name baptism) and be born of the spirit to enter the Kingdom of God (The infilling of the holy ghost), John 3:5-7

How do I know when I have the Holy Ghost? 
In Acts 2, we see the very first time God poured out His spirit on man, in the upper room. They were in one place and on one accord, showing us that God works mightily when there is unity (psalm 133). ”And suddenly there came a sound from Heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.”(v2.). There must be an initial sound when one receives the Holy Ghost. 
Some preach you know the holy ghost is there when you produce the fruit of the spirit. False. You cannot live holy without first having the spirit of God in you. 
When men received the holy ghost in the Bible, they spoke in tongues:
· Acts 2:4
• Acts 10:44-46
• Acts 19:6
After you have those initial evidence, then you can claim you have the Holy Ghost inside of you, but don’t stop there. Now, you must produce fruit. You know the Holy Ghost is ACTIVE in you when you produce the fruit of the spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). 

If your church preaches that you don’t have to speak in tongues first, then obviously they’re false, according to scripture. Yes you may genuinely love God, you may have even confessed him as Lord and tried to turn from sin. However, Romans 10:9 isn’t the plan of salvation, Acts 2:38 is!

Confession is made UNTO salvation, confession isn’t salvation. 

Have you Acts 2:38 since you Romans 10:9? 

God bless!

I absolutely love Jesus, and I am unashamed to say that. I'm just a young man with big dreams, but my main purpose in life is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

  1. Man oh man!!! When I tell you my soul is rejoicing right now after reading this post!! I was just showing my mentor some of your posts and telling her how I’ve never met anyone else young like me that not only declares, but lives holiness according to the word of God!! It just warms my heart to see another young person really loving God in His absolute truth!!!
    P.S. I’m a new follower which is why I’m commenting on older posts…not a stalker LOL

    1. “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.”
      ‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:9‬ ‭
      The book of acts shows that everyone who received the spirit of Christ spoke in tongues. The fruit of the spirit is never the initial sign. No one expects to see fruit the day the seed is planted.

  2. Do you lose it? The baptism of the Holy Spirit? If you so happen to backslide and then return do you need to get baptized in the Holy Spirit again? And if so how do you do so?

    1. It may be possible, but I won’t say that because I know that bible says we are sealed by the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 4:30). However, the Bible does mention Saul’s rebellion led to God taking away His spirit. Romans 1 mentions how God allowed the people to be left up to a reprobate mind because of their blatant rebellion to His plan. So it is possible to be a believer and turn away, like judas.
      The Bible says that we should die daily to our fleshly desires (1 Corinthians 15:31). So if we are supposed to be dying daily, we should be reliving our born again experience daily I would say. So everyday we need God to give us a fresh anointing and fresh blessing (i.e. give us this day our daily bread). So the way you initially got filled should be the same way the next time.
