Is the Holy Spirit
* Alive in your heart?
* Alive in your Church?
* Healing the Sick?
* Making the blind to see, the lame to walk, the deaf to hear?
I believe if we do not see theses signs wonders and miracles, the Lord is disappointed.
He said in John 14:12-18
” Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.”
Was Jesus telling tales?
No, we are a people who have failed to recognize and employ the Talents our Master left for us. Some of us have even buried the Talents and claim they are not for today. It’s like the experation date has passed.
Matthew 25 is a chapter about the Holy Spirit:
Wise and foolish virgins: Oil for there lamps.
Those who had no oil are like the Church today…No Spiritual power, because we don’t really believe. We want to, even pray to, but don’t know how to fill our lamps.
The Master and the talents :
Jesus told the story using money for the simplicity of understanding.
Everone knows some who invest, and others, that hoard. The ones who invested were blesed the ones that hid the talent were sent to outer darkness.
The sheep and goats.
The sheep understood the Commandment to Love one another…they fed the hungry, gave clothes to the needy, water to the thirsty.
So how do we fill our lamps, invest out Talents, Love one another?
It is all as plain on the nose on our face. It is Revelation Knowledge. ..will you see and believe or hide in your bed?
Watch this space….The Holy Spirit is alive and begging to to allowed to proclaim the good news.
Lord, open our hearts and minds to see, to act, to glorify Jesus.
