For belivers in Jesus to be empowered by the fire of the Holy Spirit in their lives to do great things for his glory.


We must have His Power?

There are many claims made by many people who profess trust in God, but they lack any ability within the body to do anything? They will talk to you about the Holy Spirit, they way they see religious things?

Both in the Old Testament and in the New it is the same Spirit at work, but in the old it was given to those chosen for an appointed task! Today all believers in the death and resurrection of Jesus for the final atonement for our sins have the third person of the Trinity within us.

Judges 14:6,   1 Corinthians 2:4,  6:19,  9:13,  2 Timothy 1:7,  1 Peter 1:12.



That is how we should be, jumping for Joy.  That we are saved, that we have the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, that we know God as our Father and Jesus as our Brother and Friend.

What more could we want or have to counter the daily grind of the hatred of the world against us.

Jeremiah 31:4,   Luke 6:22-23.


John tells us what he saw in his vision about the new Jerusalem, our city, our new home.  Revelation 21:12-14.

It is a great city with its 12 gates, representing the twelve tribes of Israel and the 12 disciples.

Numbers Chapter 2,  Mark 3:16-19.


What more can be Said?

One has to wonder after a while of writing if enough has been said on the subject of the Holy Spirit, that is within the confines of the Bible? Many today will or seem to follow many strange ideas about the role of the Holy Spirit that are not found in the Bible and so they end up getting really confused?

This blog has now been running for a couple of years and one has tried to cover every aspect of how God works through each of us believers? Life at times can be extremely difficult and illness to stress can lead to missing out those odd weeks?

It was always our intention to write 366 posts and then limit ourselves to one Bible study per month.

Psalm 107:20,    Matthew 4:4,    2 Timothy 3:16,     1 John 1:1. 


The Crucible.

We are not going to talk about the great game of snooker, but what is created in fire and destroyed by God?

Many today who claim a knowledge of God, cannot face the fact that He will Judge the world and send those who refused to repent to the eternal fires of Hell and separation!

But for us who do know the Lord from being chosen by God and born-again in to the New Life, we will be tested in His fires to be purified and to get rid of all that we cannot take with us into Glory!

Genesis 19:28,  Deuteronomy 4:20,  Psalm 21:9,  Proverbs 17:3,  Matthew 13:42, 50.


Our response to God.

We cannot truly Love God, as He loves us! But we can love the truth of His words to us in the Holy Bible? There is so much emphasis today placed in the Church on what we can get from God, but very little on what we can do for Him?

Love the truth and apply it unto our salvation, care for the widows, orphans, foreigners? Put aside what blocks us off from fanning the flame of the Holy Spirit within us? When we are walking by faith in following God-Jesus we will see our direction and place that we are meant to be in!

2 Thessalonians 2:10,  Job 31:11-12,  James 1:27,  Isaiah 1:17,  Romans 1:27.



The bible tells us that everything has to be tested by the fire of purification and so must we! This should not be a burden that we must go through, but rather a joy that we are sharing in our Lords experiences?

Too many times we are told much about burdens by people who don’t carry them?

What ever God gives to us, is always for our best and our attitude should be of praise, thankfulness and honour?

Matthew 3:11, 1 Corinthians 3:15.



Plants do not grow without roots, even those modern chambers that have no soil! Soil is the place of nutrients, the place of holding on deeper into the earth in the case of the trees.

We too need to be built on the root of Israel, blinded now so that the gentiles have the opportunity  to enter into rest! We are building on that one root and need to be flourish with flowers, seeds and good fruit?

Ephesians 3:17,  Matthew 7:24-25, 13:6,  Romans 11:16, 19, Colossians 1:23, 2:7.


Fruit of the Holy Spirit!

Every born-again or converted believer today has the indwelling of the Holy Spirit within and with this we have fruit! Sometimes one has to pinch ones self to know what we are capable of in the Power of God?

Many things can come to block us from being effective, from people to situations? But we must try to not let these things get us down, rather seek God to help us and apply this fruit daily into our lives hard as it may seem?

Galatians 5:22-26,   Ephesians 5:9-18.



The Spirit of the Lord came upon!

There is a marginal difference between the Old and New Testament in understanding the work and the role of the Holy Spirit! In times past Ha ‘Yehovah Ha’Ruach Ha ‘Kodesh Hayah came upon a chosen or appoint individual for a time. Judges 3:10, 11:29, Numbers 11:25, 2 Chronicles 20:14 and 1 Samuel 16:13.

But today and over the last two0thousands years each believer has received the Holy Spirit and we have at our disposal great and mighty power, that seems not to be used? God is not mocked, if we are born-again we must be fanning into flame the gifts that we have to serve Ekklesia and to reach out to the world with the message of Jesus!

Hebrews 10:26, 29.
