DO NOT GRIEVE THE HOLY SPIRIT – PART IV

Dear Holy Spirit, as we come to know what grieves Your precious heart and help us come to You with a repentant heart and seek the forgiveness of God the Father in Jesus, let us not vex and grieve You anymore.. In Jesus name Amen. 

And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. – Gen 6:6 

GOD LOVES YOU

Just after the Fall of man, we see how God’s heart is grieved to man’s sin and the Word of God declares God’s heart was grieved. He was sorry, but now He has reconciled man to Himself through Jesus and yet we grieve Him. He is our Father, Friend and God above all, He’s seeking us to live in a way He created us to be … to fulfill His will and walk in righteousness and not in the lust of the flesh, eye and pride of life. 

How God grieves when we sin against Him, He is speaking to His chosen people who have the Word and still continue to sin – 

GOD IS WEARIED  – But you have burdened Me with your sins, You have wearied Me with your iniquities. – Isa 43:24

You have wearied the LORD with your words; Yet you say, “In what way have wearied Him?” In that you say, “Everyone who does evil Is good in the sight of the LORD, And He delights in them,” Or, “Where is the God of justice?”- Mal 2:17

God will judge those who continue to reject His correction and blaspheme His name through immoral living. 

But they rebelled and grieved His Holy Spirit; So He turned Himself against them as an enemy, And He fought against them. – Isa 63:10

THE SIN OF GRIEVING THE HOLY SPIRIT ARE – 

23.  REJECTING GOD’S WILL – God has a plan and purpose and His thoughts are higher than ours. He has a mind infinitely wiser and greater than any human being that ever was. What we see from Solomon’s wisdom is a small and tiny portion of His wisdom. For God is Wisdom, Knowledge and understanding. He doesn’t get it from somewhere, He is Wisdom! We all have a plan chartered out by God which is more adventurous than you can imagine, there is the price to be paid, there is also sweetness in it! When He magnifies His servants its beautiful. God’s will is for His kingdom to come, to overthrow satanic influences. When He tells something, He knows your circumstances, He knows the place, condition and problems that you face, He knows everything. So don’t give excuses, Seek Him and His heart and mind to do it. To accept it, when you reject His will , you are walking in darkness, the pleasures and happiness is short-lived. For some it is total darkness, there is only pain and suffering, He is a very loving Father and cares for you, but as an obedient son or daughter receive His instruction that are life for you. You will hear His voice when you give up yours.For it is God who works in you both to will and to do His good pleasure – Phil 2: 13, “Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’ But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you. “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming. – Matt 25:11-13,

Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able.  When once the Master of the house has risen up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock at the door, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open for us,’ and He will answer and say to you, ‘I do not know you, where you are from,’ 26 then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets – Luke 13:24-26

JESUS BRIDE IS WITHOUT SPOT, WRINKLE AND BLEMISH, HE IS COMING FOR SUCH A BRIDE WHOSE HEART SAYS YES TO GOD’S WILL.

24.  DO NOT QUENCH THE SPIRIT – Do not put off the voice of God every time you hear it, do not run away from God. DO NOT IGNORE GOD’S CORRECTION. God is everywhere. There is no place that He can’t see or far from Him. Do not quench the Spirit – 1 Thes 5: 19. 

These sins have been highlighted for you to forsake it. God doesn’t condemn us but wants us to realize what grieves His Spirit. His Spirit is gentle and yet Mighty! He is the Power of God. No power is greater than the power of Holy Spirit. God is here for a purpose and in due time , the Trumpet will sound and Holy Spirit will ascend. He is gathering the church to meet the Lord in Glory, Pray we all are prepared to meet the Lord in His Glory. For the day of the Lord Jesus is at hand, Only HE knows when. We are to watch and pray. Let not satan deceive you, let not the cares and riches of this world put you to sleep and you walk away.

To those that are backsliding, God is willing to take you back – repent and turn away from sin.

God is mercy and He is love. He is also Just Judge, let the Holy fear of God lead you in Holiness. The fear is not of bondage it is of liberty. You have rebelled and live in defeat and satan has lied to you that you have no chance, God has forsaken you. God will not forsake you – you come back to Him who ever you are. He will abundantly pardon. God will embrace.

REPENT TODAY AND TURN AWAY FROM YOUR SINS ! 

Seek today the presence of God in your life. Seek the Lord your Creator.

Why are you sad in heart? It’s because He Isn’t with you. You need Him.

Come Spirit of the Living God,
We give you all the Honor and Glory
We worship and Bow down to you
As you led the children of Israel out of bondage, out of wilderness into the Promised land
Lord be with us , the Church of Jesus

Prepare us to be saints
Prepare us to be ready

Teach us to live in Christ Jesus
To be satisfied in Jesus alone O Lord

Help us to hear Your voice when you speak

Make us wiser than the wolves around us,
Empower us to tread the serpent underfoot
Let the mouths of lions be stopped.

O Lord, Put this song in our heart  – I am willing , I am willing to carry the cross
To deny self!

Let our hearts receive the commandment of God
Let the bride put on Her choice clothing
Let us shine in Your vineyard
Let our sweat fall in the vineyard of the Lord
Let us labour and rejoice
Let us sing as we are faint and weak
Let us uphold the weak and needy
Let us cry out for mercy and justice for the oppressed

Come Holy Spirit,
Thou great Lord, the Holy Person of the Trinity
O God, Come upon us

Teach us not to neglect the gift of God
O Lord forgive us for grieving the church
O Lord forgive us for allowing satan to blaspheme the name of God because of our sins
O Lord Forgive

Teach us to live for Jesus , to honor and love Him
Come Jesus , come Jesus, Come Jesus

Come O Father in Heaven, Glorify Your name

We welcome Holy Spirit

Wash us today afresh in the Holy Blood of Jesus Christ

Let us enter in Boldness in the Holiest under the Blood of Jesus for the veil has been rent

Father we come running to you, 

Embrace us in Mercy.

Father in Heaven, Let us turn away from the sin of grieving God the Holy Spirit. I pray that we are built in Christ Jesus and do not weary You with our sins, that we bring the flesh under subjection and our spirit man be cheerfully submitted to God the Holy Spirit and walk in the light of God, I pray enlarge our hearts to run the course of Your commandments. Let the fire for the love of Jesus and Your Holiness burn our hearts always and forever. Create in us a humble heart and break deception of satan in Jesus name, To God be the Glory for ever. Amen. 

Love

DO NOT GRIEVE THE HOLY SPIRIT – PART III

Dear Holy Spirit, touch us in our hearts and melt every hardness of heart towards the voice of God and towards the will of God, In Jesus name amen.

GOD WEEPS OVER OUR SINS

We do not willingly grieve Holy Spirit, but yes many of our actions, thoughts and deeds grieve the Lord. A believer must know and change the ways that are not right in the sight of the living God. Holy Spirit is the mighty person of the Trinity and He is in us. Jesus could not bear the sight of dove sellers and made a whip and threw out every one who defiled His glorious temple. It was sin that angered the Gentle Son of God.  Now, our body is the temple of God and we are COMMANDED BY GOD to keep it holy. Our heart must be completely yielded to God alone, there cannot be idols in our hearts.

LET”S PUT OFF THE SINS THAT SO ENSNARES US – 

17. BEING GLOOMY – Without reason and for everything when you are gloomy, sad and grumpy – you do not honor God. Sometimes we are sad, but when Joy, happiness and laughter is in you – why are you sad? Why do you grieve Holy Spirit ? There may be thousand reasons to remain sad, but there are more than ten thousands reasons to be merry! You are merry because Jesus lives in you. Draw nigh to Him, ,He will fill you with Joy inexpressible! He is JOY, HAPPINESS. Be joyful not because you have money or other things you own and people around you. Jesus is above all. He is Joy. Bring smile to others, Be of Good cheer. Rejoice always – 1 Thes 5:16. Being Happy in God is a place of resting in Him. When you are down, remember His grace is sufficient for you. 

18. PRAYERLESSNESS – How often prayer is neglected because of business in this world. Every morning He waits for you to fellowship . You are not doing God a favor, but He favors you. He is the Delight of nations, He is the desire of all nations ( meaning people) He is the Alpha and Omega, HE is the beautiful Saviour, the angels surround Him with songs of praises, they stand in awe of Him. He has thousands of saints worshipping Him in Heaven. He is a rewarder to those who diligently seek Him. If you wonder why you are failing – it is because you don’t fellowship with Him. For fools say in their heart – why should we pray? But the children of God always seek Him. He loves to fellowship with you. He is your friend that hears every thing you say, you friend or your girl or boyfriend, spouse, and family – will miss out on your hearts cry, but not Him. He loves when you speak to Him, because He loves you. He will empower you in prayer to get through every day life and be a victor and live in righteousness , to glorify His name. pray without ceasing – 1 Thes 5:17 , Pray for others in need, pray for the lost and for your brethren, elders and nation. Call to God to have mercy, Pray for every thing that you know needs God to intervene. There are lot of causes, but it needs Him – Brethren, pray for us – I Thes 5:25

19. BEING UNFRUITFUL IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD – you are building your self everything that you need, family, friends, and career , fame and richness and reputation , for everything you ask people, pastors to pray for you. You are there in every miracle meeting ? God is rewarding you because He is faithful! What are you doing to build the kingdom of God ? Are you labouring in His vineyard for His gospel? Is someone receiving the comfort that He gave you or He sent someone to comfort when you were down? God doesn’t need our help, He is not dependent on you – don’t be mistaken. God honors us by partnering us with Him. To allow us to be called Joint heirs with Christ. Because We are His children, We do His will! God wants us to bring forth fruits of righteousness, love, long-suffering and kindness . Being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God – Phil 1: 11 , Only let Your conduct be worthy of the Gospel – Phil 1:27

DENY YOUR SELF, TAKE UP YOUR CROSS AND FOLLOW ME!

20. NOT WILLING TO SUFFER FOR CHRIST’S SAKE – Sometimes when we are rejected and go through fiery trials for Jesus name, God allows such trials to form us that we through suffering might be made whole as Jesus suffered, so must His disciples. It isn’t about inflicting pain on self, whipping self, or doing self – harm. It is understanding that when the Truth is spoken, those that dwell in darkness will rebel against you, will fight your words and put you to shame. God is with us and wants us to trust Him as He said to Paul the apostle – when you are weak, My Grace is sufficient for you. His grace strengthen us. Don’t be afraid, give your fears to Him and He will strengthen you, make you bold for the righteous are as bold as lions. For it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake. Phil 1: 29, Faith is built when it’s difficult to cross over, when it seems impossible and we look unto Him in faith believing for things unseen.

But if you will not hear it, My soul will weep in secret for your pride; My eyes will weep bitterly And run down with tears, Because the LORD’s flock has been taken captive.- JERE 13:17

21. BEING PROUD, HAUGHTY –  God hates pride, Pride is the sin of heart where the heart is lifted above God’s desires and will. Pride will blind a person to grieve the Holy Spirit. Pride causes divorces, friendship is broken, pride will stiffen you, you do not receive correction because there is pride, you don’t have peace because you didn’t yield. Pride will isolate you, pride will bring you down suddenly. God looks from afar at the haughty. Pride is the deadliest sin because you don’t hear anyone’s voice when they speak with you. You hear you own voice which deceives you. You have blotted out God in pride, you mocked His prophets, His servants, His children. You hurt others and receive hurt. Pray today that your pride be broken by God, otherwise you will be broken and destroyed. In pride you reject God’s will, your prayers go unheard, you surround yourself with false prophets, teachers and guides for they satisfy your wicked desires, they say what your itching ears want to hear! You don’t humble your self to God, the Almighty will show who He is by humbling you. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,  who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God,  but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men.  And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,  that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. – Phil 2: 5-11

DO NOT GRIEVE THE HOLY SPIRIT – PART II

Dear Holy Spirit, pray many are touched and the sin of grieving the Holy Spirit is broken, In Jesus name Amen.

WHAT GRIEVES  THE HOLY SPIRIT – 

Holy Spirit is Spirit of God the Father and God the Son Jesus Christ, He reveals the hidden truth of God to His children, however what hinders the relationship is existence of sin, as much as we want to know Jesus, He is more than willing to reveal Him to us. When Jesus said those who follow Me, must deny themselves, take up the cross and Follow Me. Only those who abide in His Word, have deeper walk with God and God corrects us to mold us into the image of His Son Jesus Christ.  Indifference to sin existing in our members will not eliminate it, but will hinder and be a road block to our fellowship with God. Today is a day to repent and change and turn back to God. 

Cry out for His mercy, Help! 

 

8. UNFORGIVENESS – Unforgiveness is the reason for no growth in Christ Jesus. As long as unforgiveness is in your heart, there is unforgiveness of your sins in the Sight of God, God is just . The Lord’s prayer  simply states – forgive us our sins as we forgive those who are indebted to us. Healing is a process, let go today and see God heal every heart that is wounded and broken and thrashed by people. God loves you and don’t let unforgiveness grow. And be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you – Eph 4: 32.

9.  FORNICATION – Don’t play with your body for it is the temple of the Living God, He is in you when you allow your mind, body to wander and commit deep sins against God. He is watching and what you sow of the flesh, will of the flesh reap corruption. God isn’t mocked!  God is Holy. He will help when you confess. Put away every sort of addictions that is perverse in nature. There is power in the blood of Jesus to cleanse every addiction and remove it’s power and satanic influence. Don’t enjoy sin and then seek forgiveness. Resist the devil, He will flee from you. But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness , let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints – Eph 5: 3. your body is the temple of Living God, As the soul and spirit of man belongs to God, even your physical body. God has power over your body to build or destroy, continuous sins causes satan to control.  Jesus has purchased your body with HIS OWN BLOOD, and your BODY BELONGS TO HIM. 

10. FOOLISH AND FILTHY TALKS – you cannot have one foot in the world and one with God. It is two separate kingdoms. God’s kingdom is full of grace and truth and Holiness and the world is corruption. Not everything is bad, but there are things that are abominable in God’s sight. There are habits that are not fitting for saints. Like filthy and double meaning jokes, you may not say it – but are you listening and enjoying? Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks – Eph 5: 4. Do not mock, insult someone. Do not laugh at those who do not know the Truth of God. Do not put down people when you are in power, authority. Seek to be gentle and loving. Enjoy life in Christ Jesus in a way that is acceptable to God.

11.  FELLOWSHIP WITH DARKNESS – The Word is our guide, Holy Spirit enlightens where there is darkness. For the light shines in darkness. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them, for it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret – Eph 5: 11-12. Do not consent to evil , though it appears naïve and harmless, inside is the wicked scheme of satan to destroy you.

12. DO NOT SLEEP – Awaken your spirit man , and let the spirit man be subject to Holy Spirit. Do not let the flesh and its desires rule and reign you. Crucify what is fleshly. The hour is here, when the bride is preparing to meet the Lord. Don’t forget your true identity as you run each and every single day with your earthly responsibility, remember He who does not bear His cross is not worthy of the LORD JESUS CHRIST. Its not about the symbol that you are wearing around your neck ! It’s living for Him and denying self and saying no to the lust of flesh, eyes and saying NO to pride. Therefore He says – Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light – Eph 5″ 14

13.  NOT KNOWING THE WILL OF GOD – Be wise, learn from Holy Spirit , spend time and know the purpose and will of God for yourself and work towards it. Let your desires be surrendered to know His perfect will for you. Live for Him, let Christ live in you. Do not get your options and ask God to select one and declare this is the will of God, God can select something OUT OF YOUR OPTIONS! What you see, God doesn’t see like that! For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts. – Isa 55: 8-9There fore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is, and do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit. – Eph 5:17-18. 

14.  DISCORD AMONG BRETHREN – Do not be divided, stand united in Christ Jesus, don’t just fellowship with those who are of same church, be willing to reach out to those to whom God leads you, break all barriers of divisions. Do not put down your own brethren, do not be hostile, Do not point out faults, but be loving! Speaking to one another in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs , singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord – Eph 5: 19

15.  UNTHANKFUL – Did you thank God truly from your heart today? Did you thank God for being alive? For salvation, for every good thing you own and have. We are blessed because of not things and people around us , it is surely is a blessing from God, the greatest blessing from God is to be under His grace and receive His forgiveness, to know that with open hands He wants to welcome us when we return home. Do you thank Him for all the prayers He answers? He protects you when you walk , sleep and keeps the fiery darts away from you. Don’t see what you don’t have, you will accomplish them in Christ Jesus., but look at Him whom you have and is able to meet all your needs. Giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ – Eph 5: 20 / in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. – 1 Thes 5:18

Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

16. DO NOT DESPISE PROPHECIES  – Seek the Lord when a prophecy is uttered to you, God will not always use the prophet you know, He can bring His prophets from the ends of the earth.  Don’t reject and despise i.e, hate,abhor a prophecy because you don’t agree with. Seek Holy Spirit, for the prophet speaks or sings under the inspiration of God, it is the breath of God flowing through that person. It is the voice of God for you, do not let the wrath of God come on you by rejecting a true prophet of God. Turn to Holy Spirit and ask Him to know whether this prophecy is from God. Do not despise prophecies ,  Test all things; hold fast what is good – 1 Thes 5:20-21
