The Indwelling of the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit dwells inside each Christian that has hands laid on him in the baptism of the Holy Ghost. This Holy Spirit stirs inside each of us as Jesus Christ and the LORD God have Works for us to perform for Them.

When the Holy Spirit moves inside us, we become tools for Him. An effective Christian is able to empty himself of himself when the Holy Spirit moves. The more the Christian is able to remove self-focus, the more filling is accomplished by the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit moves greatly, and fills the Christian with an extraordinary large amount of Himself, it is done to complete an important Work that He Wills done.

This large filling is a temporary condition, done until the completion of the Work intended. When a Christian does not fight the process, wonderful Works of the LORD God are produced, and effects change among many.

When I am preparing a Bible Study, I separate myself from worldly influence, and most importantly, myself. When it is His Will, the Holy Spirit greatly fills me and accomplishes what He Will. When I am finished with that task, or my physical and mental being is not able to sustain, His presence inside me relaxes, and I return to a normal state of being. He is still inside me, but the powerful filling is lessoned to allow me to recover for another day.

Once the Holy Spirit returns to a normal being inside me, for a while, I sometimes become disorientated, depressed, frustrated, disappointed, sad, or wanting to cry. When I was a young Christian, I thought that meant that I was sinning somehow. Now, after many, many years of experiencing this condition, I understand it completely. If we have the power of the LORD God and Jesus Christ in us so strongly that our very selves disappear, then certainly, when that dwelling subdues, we are faced once again with our pathetic human condition. That transition between powerful use by the Holy Spirit, and becoming once again just a human, and the journey from a spiritual high place of great filling of the Holy Spirit to face my lowly nature once again is difficult but necessary so His Works can always continue to be directed by Him.

1 Corinthians 2:6-16 AV

“6 ¶ Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, [even] the hidden [wisdom], which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known [it], they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 10 But God hath revealed [them] unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned. 15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.” (1 Corinthians 2:6-16 AV)
