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

GRIEVING OVER LOVED ONES …

Dear Holy Spirit, please guide and mentor me always, Heal every grieving, sorrowful heart and that seeks comfort. Lord You alone can bring deliverance in Jesus, let us receive what You want to give and give to others who need YOU more each and every day, Come Jesus . Amen.

Surely He has borne our griefs

      And carried our sorrows;

      Yet we esteemed Him stricken,

      Smitten by God, and afflicted.  – Isaiah 53:4 

The loss of some one close and dear to you  is very painful and God alone can heal us. It may be a sudden death, sickness, others. What ever the way – once the person is away from us, we feel so much of pain. Even the most faithful believer suffers . Because death is the result of sin and it isn’t what God initially planned for His creation.

As you are grieving, Come to the LORD and let Him heal you. It may take some days and allow Him to put balm where there is pain and grief.

Do not let the LIE OF SATAN get you which says – it Is the will of God for that person to go away. That’s a lie! God never plans to take away someone in their sickness, accident. These are the works of the devil. The bible is clear when God said  – Psalm 91:16 –

With long life I will satisfy him,

         And show him My salvation.

Here, we know God wants to bless us with long life and show us His salvation. That is Deliverance, healing and His mercy, grace.

When people speak to you about the Word of God – receive even if you are weak or too weak to respond. God alone can replace the pain.

Don’t die in your heart. LIVE. For you must be the carrier of joy that He has just given you. Be a comfort for others.

Don’t bury your self in work, in sport or some kind of work. The pain will only be numbed and will remain. Let it be removed.

And He said, “Where have you laid him?”

They said to Him, “Lord, come and see.”

Jesus wept. Then the Jews said, “See how He loved him!” – John 11:34-36

Jesus is not indifferent , His heart is broken even above ours when He see’s the death of His children, He is beside each and every person and loves unconditionally, His love is what heals our heart in time… God is love, God is life, God is joy and God is patient and merciful.

The Parable of Jairus – when His daughter lay sick and he came to  see Jesus and heal his daughter, however it was a test of faith when Jairus saw Jesus busy with others. The woman with the flow of Blood healed and thanking and giving her testimony to Jesus and the crowd pressing to Jesus for healing. Jairus gave up when his messengers came and said his daughter is dead and Jairus turned to go. However Jesus said – Do not be afraid, only believe. He cast out all the wailer and weeper from Jairus house, representing His heart over that issue said, the little girl is sleeping and not dead. He raised her up and gave her something to eat.

Jesus always has the last word to say in our life, even after the death. He is the judge of the living and of the dead. 

He is here on the earth to heal each and every broken-hearted. What ever condition you are and share the suffering of your loved one, there is a Feet where you can cast all your cares. His name is JESUS, because He cares for you. And when you give Him, He will give you His peace. He is the Peace of God, HE is the Joy of God. Come and receive your divine healing.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;  and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. – Phil 4: 6-7.

Receive the Lord’s comfort  – open your heart to be healed and set free, know God cares and loves u.

For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,
And do not return there,
But water the earth,
And make it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower
And bread to the eater,
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

For you shall go out with joy,
And be led out with peace;
The mountains and the hills
Shall break forth into singing before you,
And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree,
And instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree;
And it shall be to the Lord for a name,
For an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.” – Isa 55:10- 13

Dear Father in Heaven, I pray for healing for broken hearts. Those that don’t understand what happened and why it happened. Lord, You know and You were there and can comfort us, only You are able to remove grief and deep anguish of spirit. I pray now stretch out Your hand to heal and restore, bind all depression, negative thoughts. Break every anger, regret, sadness and gloom and heaviness of heart. Fill every heart with a new song , a new and living Hope in Jesus, a smile and strengthen the weak for Your grace is sufficient for us, Let Your Spirit heal… Let the Power and presence of God flow. In Jesus name Amen

Love
