THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THE LIFE OF A RIGHTEOUS CHRISTIAN

To understand what it means to have the Holy Spirit in you , it will help if you keep the following in mind:

1) It is not easy to describe The Holy Spirit. So take your time to learn who the Holy Spirit is and experience the work of the Holy Spirit in you.

2) The more you study your Bible and the better you become in obeying the Commands of God and Jesus, the more you experience the work of the Holy spirit, the more you know the Holy Spirit.

3) All other human made religions are dead, they are external regulations and rituals and ceremonial actions, leading to absolutely nothing, but The Holy Spirit makes the Christian’s faith alive.

4) The Holy Spirit makes your faith come alive. Believing in Jesus and in God of the Bible and living a righteous life, the Holy Spirit in you transforms your faith from only believing to a live relationship with Jesus. It is as if Jesus is still in this world to help you to become what God wants you to be, to be able to enter the Kingdom of God.

5) With The Holy Spirit, you as righteous Christian can live your faith.

6) With The Holy Spirit in you, you have the promised new covenant in you.

7) THE NEW COVENANT IS ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT. JESUS CAME INTO THIS WORLD TO IMPLEMENT THE NEW COVENANT.

It means that Jesus received the Holy Spirit and was led by The Holy Spirit and by obeying the Holy Spirit He did what God wanted Him to do. The same with you , you will also be led by The Holy Spirit in doing what God wants you to do and The Holy Spirit will direct you in not doing things Jesus will not be pleased with. The Holy Spirit will lead you to a righteous life.

JESUS IS THE MEDIATOR OF THE NEW COVENANT Heb8:6 But in fact the ministry Jesus has received is as superior to theirs as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one, since the new covenant is established on better promises. Heb9:15 For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance–now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.Php2:8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death– even death on a cross!

8) The new covenant is the covenant God is making with you that if you believe in His Son and has received Jesus as your Savior , you have been born again- it means been born of the Spirit , His laws will be written in your mind by The Holy Spirit and written on your heart by The Holy Spirit ,He ,the God of the Bible, will be your God, and you will be His son/ daughter,

9) You will become one of “a people” or “His people” destined to enter the kingdom of God .

10) The Holy Spirit receives from Jesus, who is in Heaven, to make known to you what He ,Jesus , wants you to know or do or be

.

THE PROMISE OF NEW COVENANT:

Jer31:31 “The days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah.

Jer 31:32 It will not be like the covenant I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband to them,” declares the LORD.

Jer 31:33 “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the LORD. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.

Jer 31:34 No longer will they teach their neighbor, or say to one another, ‘Know the LORD,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest,” declares the LORD. “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.”

Heb8:8 But God found fault with the people and said: “The days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah.

Heb 8:9 It will not be like the covenant I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they did not remain faithful to my covenant, and I turned away from them, declares the Lord.

Heb 8:10 This is the covenant I will establish with the people of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.

Heb9:15 For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance–now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.

JESUS RECEIVED THE HOLY SPIRIT

Mar 1:10 Just as Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove.

Mar 1:11 And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”

Mar 1:12 At once the Spirit sent him out into the wilderness,

THE MINISTRY OF THE NEW COVENANT IS THE MINISTRY OF THE SPIRIT AND IS THE MINISTRY THAT BRINGS RIGHTEOUSNESS

2Co3:8 will not the ministry of the Spirit be even more glorious?

2Co3:9 If the ministry that brought condemnation was glorious, how much more glorious is the ministry that brings righteousness!

Joh 16:7 But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.

Joh 16:8 When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment:

Joh 16:9 about sin, because people do not believe in me;

THE REASON GOD SENT THE HOLY SPIRIT TO BE WITH US IS BECAUSE JESUS COULD NOT STAY LONGER IN THIS WORLD TO TEACH US ABOUT RIGHTEOUSNESS. GOD SENT THE HOLY SPIRIT TO TEACH US HOW TO STAY HOLY AND RIGHTEOUS -TO BE LIKE JESUS. GOD RAISED JESUS FROM THE DEAD AND TOOK HIM BACK INTO HEAVEN TO RULE FROM HIS THRONE AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD THE FATHER.

Joh16:7 But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.

Joh16:8 When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment:

Joh16:9 about sin, because people do not believe in me;

Joh16:10 about righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer;

2Co3:3 You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.

1Jn4:13 This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit.

Rom8:11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.

Act 5:32 We are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him.”

Rom 8:14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.

Luk1:17 And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the parents to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous–to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”

Rom8:9 You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ.

Joh 3:5 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.

Joh17:23 I in them and you in me–so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.

Eph1:10 to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment–to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.

Eph4:3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.

Eph4:13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

Col3:14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

Col 1:8 and who also told us of your love in the Spirit.

Col 1:9 For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives,

Col 1:10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,

Col 1:11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience,

Col 1:12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.

Col 1:12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.

IT IS ALL ABOUT JESUS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS IF YOU WANT TO ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

The Holy Spirit will help you to stay righteous. You must obey the commands of Jesus and of God in The Word of God. You must always listen and obey the Holy Spirit.

Rom6:13 Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness.

Rom6:16 Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey–whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?

Rom6:18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

Rom6:20 When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness.

Rom8:10 But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness.

1Pe4:18 And, “If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?”

WITH THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS IT WILL BE THE RIGHTEOUS CHRISTIANS WHO WILL BE TAKEN UP TO MEET HIM IN THE AIR .

1Jn3:2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.

Php3:21 who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body. 1Th_4:17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.

Mat13:49 This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous

Mat25:46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
