Look, I don't know how much clearer I can make this, in fact I don't think it is possible to make it any more clearer than I already have. God's Holy Spirit is in me! I have prophesied, interpreted visions, and had visions, and His Holy Spirit has moved in me and moves in me every day. I read His word almost daily (yes almost, on some days I do not have the time to do so, however I do try to make time for it), and when I do He leads me in what to read, and when I read I get a unique message from Him, and it is always relevant. I pray to Him daily and He comforts my soul. I have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in me, and you sir have no authority to say otherwise.FredFlanders wrote:
Because you believe in Christ does not mean you have the Holy Spirit. There is more God has to give you must you must ask and seek for it.
There are many examples in scripture that will show you people who believe in Christ and God that do not have the Holy Spirit.
Receiving the Holy Spirit is a separate event to repentance and baptism. Acts 8 is a perfect example of how people were believed in Jesus, were baptised, had joy in Christ, were healed in the name of Jesus and had demons cast out of the yet had not reived the Holy Spirt until Peter and John prayed with them to receive the Holy Spirit.
Excuse me? I seek the fullness of Christ and seek His Kingdom first and always, and I will not be satisfied until I am in Heaven with Him. I study scripture, I have forgiveness of my sins, and not being perfect, when I do sin I do feel sorry and repent for what I have done. Why do I? Because of the conviction of the Holy Spirit.As you know many denominations water down the Gospel where there is no repentance, no baptism, no receiving of the Holy Spirit, no study of scripture. Lets make sure Gab seeks the fullness of Christ and does not stop where he is at the moment.
Look if you don't want to believe the Holy Spirit is in me, then don't. You are wrong, God has shown me beyond a shadow of a doubt that I do. You do not know me, you do not know what has gone on in my life, and you certainly don't know my spiritual experiences from the Holy Spirit. If you did, you would know the truth. I am not a new believer to the faith, and I am not a man with weak faith, I have an unshakable faith that has been built up by God over the years.
Gab did you study Acts 8 as in my last post to you or are you still in bed??
There are many good people like yourself in the NT that believed yet had not yet received the Holy Spirit.
