Many persons do not really know much about what the Bible says about the Holy Spirit. If you personally do want to have an increase of people in your church, or more love, joy, faith, in your own life, and to be able to resist the continual onslaughts of the enemy the devil you need to be now anointed with the Holy Spirit and you need to get to know him and his works better too. Generally the works of the Holy spirit have an initial beginning but they are also continual works, evolving ones. God is complex and so is the work of the holy spirit as well.. 7 is the number of spiritual perfection.. to be perfect we should experience all of God 7 anointings now too..
The Holy Spirit is a person who combines the 7 Spirits of God, EXPRESSIONS OF GOD’S CHARACTER, PERSONALITY OR NATURE
(Isa 11:2 KJV) And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
Isaiah 11:2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him,
– the spirit of wisdom
– and understanding,
– the spirit of counsel
– and might,
– the spirit of knowledge
– and of the fear of the LORD;
-with righteousness shall he judge
– 3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: 4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth: with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
Proverbs 8:12 I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. 13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogance, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. 14 Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength. 15 By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. 16 By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.
Again the Seven Spiritual attributes or anointings that express the character of God
– Spirit of Weeping and Sorrow, Holy Spirit Travail, Anointings,
-Holiness the Spirit of Holiness
-The Spirit of Mercy and Compassion,
-Joy or Rejoicing
-Spirit of Zeal
-Spirit of Power
-Spirit of Wisdom and Truth
1 God’s Spirit of Sorrow
is at the center of intercession. It is travailing sorrow that results in the fruit of deliverance. It is the Spiritual device God uses in the supernatural breaking of yokes. The anointing takes upon itself a focus persons who are lost, in a great need or those who are bound.
Christ is ever touched by the feeling of our weakness or infirmities! The anointing of The Lord’s sorrow is transferred to intercessors who travail for those who have been taken prey by spiritual enemies. While Jesus has and is come to seek and to save those who are lost, the Devil has come and will continue to come, to steal, kill, and destroy. Sorrow as an anointing is manifested by the Spirit giving voice to groaning and deep anguish beyond words. Tears of Godly sorrow brings forth repentance after it has had enough time to complete the Holy Spirit’s work. The breaking and release is signaled by an outrushing of joy or laughter.
One who is yielded to this Spirit of God begins to lament and be sorrowful as the Holy Spirit begins to initiate this anointing within. It can be faked or counterfeited, but then its power and usefulness are lost. Any such act of the flesh produces no fruit.
Though observable, deep anointings of intercession can not be learned.
The anointing of Godly sorrow supersedes all personal cares and feelings. However, The Spirit of God will use personal sorrow as a starting point and turn it into Godly sorrow. Personal sorrow is directed self-ward, but Godly sorrow other-ward. Godly intercession interacts with several anointings; sorrow, joy, warring anger, praise and worship, according to the moving of the Spirit.
At the point of release spiritual sorrow will normally always end with joy and laughter.
Scriptural References to the Sorrow of God “Jesus wept.” ( — John 11:35) > “For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.”( — 2 Corinthians 7:10) “Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.” ( — Isaiah 66:8) “My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,” ( — Galatians 4:19) “And at the evening sacrifice I arose up from my heaviness; and having rent my garment and my mantle, I fell upon my knees, and spread out my hands unto the LORD my God,”(– Ezra 9:5) “Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping.” ( — Psalms 6:8) “The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer.” ( — Psalms 6:9) “For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”( — Psalms 30:5) “And in that day did the Lord GOD of hosts call to weeping, and to mourning, and to baldness, and to girding with sackcloth:”( — Isaiah 22:12) “They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble:” ( — Jeremiah 31:9) “That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.” (– Romans 9:2) “And he (Jesus) took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.” ( — Matthew 26:37) “And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,” ( — Luke 19:41) “Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.”( — Luke 6:21) “Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.” ( — Romans 12:15) “Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.”( — John 16:20) “A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.”( — John 16:21) “For I have heard a voice as of a woman in travail, and the anguish as of her that bringeth forth her first child, the voice of the daughter of Zion, that bewaileth herself, that spreadeth her hands, saying, Woe is me now! for my soul is wearied because of murderers.”( — Jeremiah 4:31) “For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.”( — Romans 8:22) “And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.”( — Romans 8:23)
2 The Spirit of Holiness: (Worship and Holy Fear)
Though there are numerous listings of the Spirit of Holiness it is hard to account it strictly as an anointing.
Where other anointings find expression in action and word, the spirit of Holiness finds expression in inaction and awed reverence. The closer we come to experiencing God face to face the more this power is revealed. God is Holy and so far above all that is human and mundane to be indescribable. The human ‘son of man’ who finds himself or herself in the proximity of God becomes as “one who is dead”. In this state we do not think, we do not speak, we do not carry on with any of the normal human senses, we are incapacitated toward any action but fear and awe. God only releases us to return to the world of flesh and material limitations.
True Worship is encompassed by the Spirit of Holiness. There is little that any created or begotten creature can do in the manifested presence of God other than to fall before him in total “awe-full” submission.
The Spirit of Holiness provides understanding to the phrase “fear of the Lord.” Encounters with the Lord as depicted by Ezekiel, Isaiah, John and others describe the son of man falling as dead in His presence, in the Holy of Holies His awesome power is manifested; no priest can stand to minister; the angels cry ‘holy’.
The elders and patriots bow in surrender the earth trembles before him; every living thing waits breathlessly before Him in silence.
The anointings of God are awaiting believers who desire to move deeper in God. Today many in Christian churches make no separation between the psychological realm of the mind and thought, and the spiritual. It is the power of God that fuels the spiritual while human abilities fuel the efforts of the natural man. Experiencing the Word of God in power is what the apostle’s doctrine urges. God desires to manifest His virtue, thought, and powers through earthen vessels so that the excellence of manifestation may be attributed to God and not man.
The power of God through the Holy Spirit makes the experience of God’s Holy presence a reality and supplies the child of God with a taste of that which is entirely from God. No eye has seen nor hear has heard what God has prepared for those who love Him. But now it is revealed by the Holy Spirit.- – 1Corinthians 2:9
3: The Spirit of Compassion:
The Spirit of Adoption
(The Tender Mercies of God the Father)
For the Lord is Good and His Mercies endure forever! The Goodness of God is the source of all grace and blessing. The Father’s heart of forgiveness and compassion are revealed again and again throughout scripture and are at the center of all Jesus’ ministry. Mercy, compassion, forgiveness; Mercy, compassion, healing; Mercy, compassion, restoration; Mercy, compassion, deliverance. The mercies of God directed to weak and fallible souls is the greatest wonder of the universe!
The simplicity of the phrase “tender mercies” reflects so powerfully the kindness of God, the Good Shepherd who cares for and nurtures his flock. The same father who receives the prodigal and clothes him with a fine robe and prepares the fatted calf for feasting, fills our own cup to overflowing!
The kindness of God is expressed in the ministering hand a friend and comforter.
Agape love is the love which expresses itself in gestures of kindness, in actions of giving compassion.
It is the heart of Jesus’ ministry when He declares, “the Son of Man came not to be ministered to by to minister.” Ministery in the Greek word source means simply to serve.
“How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.” (– Psalms 36:7)
“Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.” ( — Psalms 42:8)
“To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came unto him, after He had gone in to Bathsheba. Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.” ( — Psalms 51:1)
“Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.” (– Psalms 63:3)
“Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.” — Psalms 40:11
“Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;” ( — Psalms 103:4)
“Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for thy law is my delight.” ( — Psalms 119:77)
“The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.” (– Psalms 145:9)
“But though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies.”
(– Lamentations 3:32)
“He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.” ( — Micah 7:19)
“But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.” ( — Matthew 9:36)
“And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.” (– Matthew 14:14)
“Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellow servant, even as I had pity on thee?” (– Matthew 18:33)
“So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.” (– Matthew 20:34)
“But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,” ( — Luke 10:33)
“Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:” (– 1 Peter 3:8)
“For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.” (– 1 John 3:20)
“And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.” “And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.” ( — Mark 1:40,41)
4: The Spirit of Praise and Rejoicing: (The Spirit of Joy )
I have found a surprising spiritual link between apparent opposites, sorrow and joy. The Holy Spirit turns mourning into dancing, heaviness into praise, weeping into rejoicing. There is an ultimate point in the cycle of the Holy Spirit’s travail when tears of sorrow turn into victory and darkness turns into the breaking dawn of hope. Therefore joy and sorrow are bonded pairs and blend into one another.
Again, joy is not a human emotion on this level but an anointed expression of the Spirit. Thanksgiving and praise follow breakthroughs of the Spirit. Holy laughter though ridiculed by those who have not experienced it is part of the richness of the spiritual life. When we are anointed with the Spirit of Joy, a vast separation is manifested between the material and the spiritual world; cares and heaviness give way to confidence. We sense that God is our total victory and that He will never leave us nor forsake us. Our hearts are lifted up to the high places where we all sit with Him in heavenly places!
“Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.”(– Psalms 45:7)
“To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; ” ( — Isaiah 61:3)
“So that the people could not discern the noise of the shout of joy from the noise of the weeping of the people: for the people shouted with a loud shout, and the noise was heard afar off.”( — Ezra 3:13)
“Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; Thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.” (– Acts 2:28)
“Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”( — Psalms 16:11)
“Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: Thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;”(– Psalms 30:11)
“And David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.” ( — 2 Samuel 6:14)
5: The spirit of Zeal The Spirit of Judgment: Spirit of Burning (The Zeal of God is as a Consuming Fire)
The study of the “Zeal of God” encompasses the entire question of God’s anger, wrath and judgment and those upon whom it is directed. In the time of the Old Covenant we see prophets and judges who exercised God’s judgment against the unrighteous nations. These wicked nations served demon gods. Almighty God commanded their destruction. After Jesus’ ministry, the dispensation of the church age began and with church age the focus of this spirit of judgment has shifted. We no longer come against people who are wicked because of the Lord’s example to forgive and bless those who do evil. Yet we do see the Spirit of Judgment and zeal demonstrated by Jesus. It was however, directed against those in the world of religion who withstood the Spirit of God. The cleansing of the temple accounts reflects the zeal of God. We call this kind of anointing righteous anger.
Today our enemies are revealed to be spiritual and not in flesh. Today, prayers of imprecation (asking for vengeance and destruction of our enemies) as spoken by the prophets and psalmist are appropriate only if targeted to spiritual rulership in heavenly places and not against human beings.
“When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.” ( — Isaiah 4:4)
“And for a spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate.”( — Isaiah 28:6)
“But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.”( — Micah 3:8)
“For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.” (– Psalms 69:9)
“Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.” ( — Isaiah 9:7)
“My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words.” ( — Psalms 119:139)
“Thus shall mine anger be accomplished, and I will cause my fury to rest upon them, and I will be comforted: and they shall know that I the LORD have spoken it in my zeal, when I have accomplished my fury in them.” ( — Ezekiel 5:13)
“When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.”(– Isaiah 4:4)
6: The Anointing of Power Strong’s No.1411. dunamis, doo’-nam-is; from G1410; force (lit. or fig.); spec. miraculous power (usually by impl. a miracle itself):–ability, abundance, meaning, might (-ily, -y, -y deed), (worker of) miracle (-s), power, strength, violence, mighty (wonderful) work._
The Anointing of Power
God is a God of Power and Might. By His word the worlds are created. By His word the creation stands. He commands life to be and it is. The greatness of God is fathomless. His power to us who believe is beyond comprehension. What is this powerful attribute of God which raised Jesus from the dead? What is the power which can create the miraculous? With a word He will call the sleeping dead to arise from their graves and will quicken mortal bodies.
Men of power were anointed in Strength:
“And the spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and he rent him as he would have rent a kid, and he had nothing in his hand:.” — Judges 14:6
“And the spirit of the LORD came upon him, and he went down to Ashkelon, and slew thirty men of them, and took their spoil, ” — Judges 14:19
“And when he came unto Lehi, the Philistines shouted against him: and the spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and the cords that were upon his arms became as flax that was burnt with fire, and his bands loosed from off his hands.” (– Judges 15:14)
“But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.” ( — Micah 3:8)
“Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power(dunamai), and coming in the clouds of heaven.” (– Matthew 26:64)
“Now to him that is of power to establish you according to my Gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,” (– Romans 16:25)
“And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:”
( 1 Corinthians 2:4)
“Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.”
( 2 Corinthians 4:14) That I might know Him in the power of His resurrection-” (Phillipians 3:10)
7: The Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding: (The Spirit of Truth)
To truly discern it is to know the mind and heart of God. To know the full reality. To have this heart within you, is a guiding light of wisdom and knowledge that at once, knows the truth. In this anointing we know that God is our Father; that the Bible is his divine voice speaking the word of truth; often that human voices written or spoken, are speaking from personal vanity or from divine revelation.
The Lord Jesus announced to his disciples (Both his original and his current — including our current generation, if we believe on His name) that he would send us a comforter, a teacher. Jesus refers to this helper as the Spirit of Truth. It is this spirit of wisdom, truth, and understanding who is the voice of the witness, the Great Amen, the voice of the Good Shepherd in John 10: v 4.
“And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they may make Aaron’s garments to consecrate him, that he may minister unto me in the priest’s office.” ( — Exodus 28:3)
“And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,” (– Exodus 31:3)
“And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that are wise hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded thee;” ( — Exodus 31:6)
“And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands upon him: and the children of Israel hearkened unto him, and did as the LORD commanded Moses.” (– Deuteronomy 34:9)
“And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;”(– Isaiah 11:2)
“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:” ( — Ephesians 1:17)
“And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever;” ( — John 14:16)
“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.” (– John 14:17)
“But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, He shall testify of me:” — John 15:26
We can clearly see also all of these attributes in real Holy Spirit filled, anointed Christians now as well in the New Testament and following.
Jesus had said that without Him and his Holy Spirit you can do nothing.. nothing everlasting, or significant too. yet people falsely do try to Divorce the Holy Spirit or try to substitute the Holy Spirit with false doctrines, vanities still to dayhttps://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/09/19/the-false-demotion-of-the-holy-spirt-jesus-2/
Acts 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
We all do need the power, the anointing of the Holy Spirit in our life. The Greek word for anointing is chrisma, from which we have the word chrism. Chrisma appears several times in 1 John 2:20 and 27. It comes from the root word, chriô, which means to rub something or someone lightly with a substance like oil or lotion. The word christos means a person so anointed and the word chrisma refers to that by which a person is anointed. John uses chrisma in these two verses, not speaking of the object being anointed but of the instrument of anointing. Additionally, we find a word christianos in Acts 11:26, which means “one belonging to the Anointed One,” just as Herodianos would mean “one who belongs to Herod.”
AND THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A PARTIAL CHRISTIAN WHO REJECTS THE ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT and as to why the Christians were called Christians.. We need to look at what the Bible itself says here firstly too.
To be a Christian is based on the Greek word anointed one, Christos, a person in whom we can see the anointing of the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ.. Jesus Christ himself also was baptized with the Holy Spirit, The word “Christ” is a transliteration of the Greek word christos, meaning “the Anointed One.
(Acts 10:38 KJV) How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
Now the anointed one- Greek for Messiah (anointed one) is Christos, Christ in English. Thus, “Jesus Christ” joins a name and a title, and means Jesus the Messiah. Christ, Messiah, Anointed One. The title “Christ” or “Anointed One” Gk. Christos “Cristov” occurs about 350 times in the New Testament..
The word christos means a person HOLY SPIRIT anointed . The Greek name for an individual “Christos” rendered “Christ” in Scripture, the basic of the term Christian now as well, comes from the Greek word “chrio” means to anoint with oil, the symbol of the Holy Spirit,
Luke 4:18-19 (Wey) [Jesus:] “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to proclaim Good News to the poor; He has sent me to announce release to the prisoners of war and recovery of sight to the blind: to send away free those whom tyranny has crushed, to proclaim the year of acceptance with the Lord.”But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth. . . .
As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit–just as it has taught you, remain in him. 1 John 2:20, 27;
I can understand why the false Christians do not want to be associated with the name of Jesus Christ.. and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit especially when they do not know the Holy Spirit personally
Do you even know the true benefits of speaking in tongues, as to why this gift is so valuable..
“ Here are 10 reasons to prove why we need this wonderful gift.
1. The manifestation that came with the gift of the Holy Spirit was speaking in tongues. It wasn’t the wind, fire, noise or feeling of God’s presence that was evidence of the gift being received but a spirit language—believers began speaking languages of the Spirit they didn’t understand. It was God’s plan for the gift to function as a spirit language for His children (Acts 2:4, 11; 1 Cor. 14:2).
2. Jesus commanded us to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. When Jesus commissioned the disciples to wait in Jerusalem until they received the promise of the Father, He didn’t say, “Do this if you feel led to do so, or if it fits in your doctrinal or denominational beliefs, or if you have the time, or if you are so inclined, or if you feel comfortable about it.” No! Jesus commanded them to wait until they received the gift of the Holy Spirit. Since Jesus put such importance on their receiving this gift, that’s more than enough reason for every Christian to seek God until they receive it too (Acts 1:4; 5:32; John 14:16-17; Eph. 5:18).
3. The Scriptures exhort us to be filled with the Spirit and to pray in the new tongues of our spirit language. Our spirit language enables us to live in the Spirit, walk in the Spirit, be led of the Spirit, have the fruit of the Spirit, manifest the gifts of the Spirit and go from glory to glory until we are transformed into His same image (Gal. 5:22-25; Rom. 8:14; 1 Cor. 12:7-11; 14:15; Eph. 5:18; Acts 19:2; 2 Cor. 3:18).
4. A spirit language is the greatest gift the Holy Spirit can give a believer. Jesus is the greatest gift God could give for the redemption of the world, and the Holy Spirit is the greatest gift Jesus could give to His church. Of all the resources in heaven and the eternal universe, nothing is more valuable, beneficial or important for the Holy Spirit to give the individual child of God than her own spirit language (1 Cor. 12:31; 14:4).
5. Our spirit language enables us to have spirit-to-Spirit communication with God. Humans are spirit beings clothed with flesh-and-bone bodies. While man’s sin deadened the spirit, Jesus brings the spirit back to life by imparting His everlasting life into us. The Holy Spirit gives us a spirit language so we can communicate directly with God (John 4:24; 1 Cor. 15:45; Gen. 2:7; Rom. 5:12; John 3:3-5, 16).
6. Praying in tongues builds and increases our faith. Faith is the medium of exchange for all heavenly things, just as money is the medium of exchange for all earthly things. A major way to increase our faith is to pray in the tongues of our spirit language (Rom. 12:6; Jude 1:20; Mark 9:23; Matt. 9:29).
7. Praying in tongues activates the fruit of the Spirit. It’s vital and beneficial to have each of the spiritual attributes become active and mature in us. Praying in tongues helps us fulfill God’s predestined purpose for us to be conformed to the image of His Son (Gal. 5:22-23; 2 Cor. 3:18; 1 Cor. 13:1-13; Rom. 8:29).
8. Praying in our spirit language is the main way we fulfill the scriptural admonition to “pray without ceasing.” Christians can pray in tongues at any time. If we are in a place where it isn’t convenient or wise to speak out loud in tongues, we can pray with our inner man without making an audible sound (Eph. 6:18; 1 Thess. 5:17; Matt. 26:41; Luke 18:1; 21:36; 1 Cor. 14:15).
9. The Holy Spirit directs our spirit language to pray in accordance with the will of God. Probably the only time we can be assured that we are praying 100 percent in the will of God is when we are praying in our spirit language. God always answers requests that are made in alignment with His will (Rom. 8:27; 1 John 5:14-15).
10. Praying in tongues quiets the mind. When Dr. Andrew Newberg, a neuroscientist, compared brain scans of Christians praying in tongues with Buddhist monks chanting and Catholic nuns praying, the study showed the frontal lobes—the brain’s control center—went quiet in the brains of Christians talking in tongues, proving that speaking in tongues isn’t a function of the natural brain but an operation of the spirit (1 Cor. 14:2, 14). “
Adapted from Seventy Reasons for Speaking in Tongues by Bill Hamon .
It is amazing that many people falsely concentrate on what they or others believe, what mere men and women say on the Subject and not rather what the New testament Bible actually says .. as the devil does not want them to see and admit the Bible truth.. there are so many different and even false interpretations too on what tongues thus is -“that the gift of tongues constituted a type of “ language,” a series of initially unintelligible sounds that are unrelated to one’s own human speech and so they need to be also interpreted. One should pray to have this interpretation too”. These Bible liars and distorters would falsely have you believe that the gift of a “tongue” was simply the divinely imposed ability to communicate the gospel of Christ in a human language that the speaker had not been taught by the ordinary education process. They are really big liars who talk about something they have no idea of what it really is still. God has given to the real Christians, those Baptized with the Holy Spirit, the gift to speak in a language that we do not know by human means. This is a gift of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor 12:10) and therefore of great help to us in praying for our own needs and the needs of others too. Paul said: “Thank God, I speak in tongues more than any of you” (1 Cor 14:18). Through the gift of tongues, the Lord builds us up (1 Cor 14:4), enables us to utter “mysteries in the Spirit” (1 Cor 14:2), and empowers us to thank and praise Him (1 Cor 14:16-17). The gift of tongues in the Church is a sign, also especially for unbelievers (1 Cor 14:22). Still there are different “kinds of tongues” (see 1 Cor 12:10 in the Greek). Apostle Paul taught: “If there is no one to interpret, there should be silence in the assembly, each one praying, speaking only to himself and to God” (1 Cor 14:28). Tongues are either interpreted for the upbuilding of the Church or are spoken in prayers only to ourselves and to God. This second kind of tongues is often called a “prayer language.” One should pray for it’s interpretation also. Yes speaking in tongues proceeds from the abundance of the gift of the Holy Spirit. Tongues were the outward and audible expression of this abundance. Moreover, these tongues, whether spoken in Jerusalem or Caesarea, were in praise of God and primarily directed to God. As Paul was later to say, “One who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men, but to God” (1 Corinthians 14:2).
” There is a river of the Holy Spirit that comes from God whose streams makes glad “believers” and fills them with joy and peace. As a result this river gives them joy and gladness, thanksgiving and the voice of melody. Yes, Joy and gladness are the trade marks of being filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. Christianity is not only to be understood with our hearts and minds and appreciated for its many miracles, signs and wonders but it’s to be experienced through the moving of the Holy Spirit. ”
John 16:7 “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.”
“I believe that one of the biggest reasons that the body of Christ hasn’t made a greater impact on our generation today is because of our failure to operate in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Without a doubt, Jesus and the first apostles used the gifts like a bell, calling men to their message and confirming that God was truly the One speaking through them”. Andrew Wommack
Hebrews 2:3-4 says, “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?” The Lord bore witness to the accuracy of their message through miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit.
In Mark 16:17-18, Jesus said all true believers would flow in the miraculous: “And these signs will follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”
The vast majority of preaching and Christian living done in the name of the Lord today is still really without the power of the Holy Spirit manifest through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. This was, is not the way the Lord Jesus Christ had intended it to be for sure.. No one can have an effective life or ministry without the power of God’s Holy Spirit working in him or her. This fact can’t be argued by anyone who truly believes the Bible is God’s Word. The Scriptures are replete with proof that it is “not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the LORD of hosts” (Zech. 4:6). It is true that the Holy Spirit is still willing to move as in biblical times then there is no excuse for living lives so far removed from that great victory portrayed in God’s Word.
Many even religious persons, people are falsely trying to reach Heaven, serve God in their own efforts neglect God’s provisions for them, God’s spiritual gifts. if you oppose tongues you are not even a Christian led by the holy Spirit. and that is your main problem still.. not being filled with the Holy Spirit.. You do need to learn what sins are holding you back from this
Acts 2:4: “All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.
Beware of the fundamentals who are experts on speaking in toungues but have never sprayed in toungues, who clearly hate the Holy Spirit cause they are still self centered Beware always of men and women, bullies, tormentors, control freaks, persons, civil and public servants, politicians, pastors, leaders, elders, who falsely do, will try to enslave you, oppress you, exploit you while claiming to be helping you
Covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.
(Rom 1:16 KJV) For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
(Psa 127:1 KJV) Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. 2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
(Prov 3:5 KJV) Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
(Gal 5:25 KJV) If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
The Lord wants to infuse you with an anointing, by the Holy Spirit, which will propel you through every line of Satan’s defense. This is how you can overcome every situation as you receive “power from on high!” Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself was full of this power as He withstood the onslaught of the devil while fasting in the wilderness. The Bible records that John the Baptist baptized Jesus, the Lord of Glory, in the river Jordan prior to Him praying and fasting 40 days and 40 nights. At the end of this fast Satan came to Him and tempted Him in His spirit, soul and body to sin against God. But Jesus resisted Satan’s offense with the statement, “It is written!” After this, Luke 4: 14 states, And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about. If Jesus, walking as a man, needed the power of the Holy Spirit to stand against the assault of the devil, I ask you, “How much more do we need the power of the Holy Spirit?” There’s a Holy Spirit revival coming, and it’s can also be coming even through your words, through your hands and through your life!
Would you like to have God’s Holy Ghost Power in your life? If so please pray this prayer humbly. “Dear Heavenly Father. As per your promises in your word, the Bible do next baptize me with your Holy sprit, power. I accept the promise of Acts 2: 38 & 39 and the anointing power of the Holy Ghost. I ask to have the power that Apostles had received even in my life. I also do want the power to overcome Satan everyday, in all areas of life! Jesus you are my lord so by your Holy Spirit, please fill me now and take full control of my life, my body and even my tongue. Let my tongue now also give praises to God the Father and His Holy Son, Jesus in a Heavenly language. I put myself, my all under your full control. Amen!”
(Acts 1:8 KJV) But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Again True Christians even these days Are Holy Ghost Baptized and they know they have received such a personal experience.. even as evidenced by speaking in tongues
Beyond the show of a doubt the devil himself firstly really hates any references to the Holy Spirit, the anointed ones, the idea that Christians do have now empowering to overcome the devil too… and so now the devil uses any of his followers, those in the fundamental religious circles too now, to now lie, twist, distort the truths.
It’s the frequent and methodical strategy of those people not Holy sprit filled, those people walking in the flesh that they do bash, recite against anyone who has evidenced the Holy Spirit anointing still too, we all can see these false professors own false, unscriptural doctrine and practice. It’s now a charge of their “blasphemy of the Holy Spirit” and their disobedience of “touch not the Lord’s anointed.”
The anointing is sacred, the anointing is the Holy Spirit, and all believers in Christ have the anointing of the Holy Spirit. We must be careful what we say about our brothers and sisters in Christ.
(Matthew 12:31 NKJV) “Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men.
In 1 Corinthians 12 Paul lists out The Holy Spirit gifts. Any Spirit-filled Christian can eventually manifest or release any of these gifts as the Holy Spirit directs him.
Word of Wisdom – God’s supernatural perspective on how to achieve His will. God’s knowledge rightly applied to specific situations. Word of Knowledge – “Facts” given by God that are unknowable without revelation.
The Gift of Faith – The supernatural ability to believe God without doubt. Essential to the Gift of Healing and Miracles. The Gift of Healing – Supernatural healing through special anointing of the Holy Spirit. The Working of Miracles – A supernatural display of power that goes beyond the natural to counteract earthly and evil forces. Discerning of Spirits – Spiritual insight into differences between the Holy Spirit, the the spirit of Man, and evil spirits at work in the earth. It is not the discerning of character faults. The Gift of Prophecy – The forth-telling of God’s utterance. It is not of the intellect but of the Spirit. It is divinely inspired and anointed words spoken by a believer. Kinds of Tongues – This is not to be confused with the use of tongues in private prayer or worship. This refers to the ministry of tongues to others. An utterance from a believer to another in a language unknown to the speaker. (Isaiah 28:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 2:4; 10:44-48; 19:1-7; 1 Corinthians 12:10; 13:1-3; 14:2,4-22,26-31; 28:31) Interpretation of Tongues – Supernatural power to reveal the meaning of tongues. Not a translation, but an interpretation. Tongues and Interpretation working together can be the equivalent of prophecy.
The working of these nine Gifts is for the profit and advantage of the Church. They are for the benefit of the Church and are specifically available to every believer as the Holy Spirit wills. (1Corinthians 12:7-11; 14:12). They should all be actively welcomed and expected in your life. (1Corinthians 14:1)
HOW MANY Spiritual, GIFTS from God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit DO WE GET? With the exception of speaking in troupes, which is a Baptism of the Holy Spirit evidence sign, it depend on how we will next use them too?
The Holy Spirit distributes His gifts to each believer severally as He wills. (1 Corinthians 12:11) It is not up to us how many gifts we want or are willing to use but up to the Holy Spirit to give whatever He wants to whoever He wants whenever He wants. It is up to us to appreciate all of them and to allow the Holy Spirit to use us in any of them to minister to others. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is God’s way of empowering us to manifest His love to His Church and to cleanse us and make us holy. We need therefore to acknowledge that love is necessary for the proper use of the Gifts – faith works by love.(Galations 5:6) Love edifies others (1Corinthians 8:1) as God has shown His love for you by giving you faith to believe in and trust in and cling to and rely on Jesus. Repent of anything that would hold you back from experiencing and walking in His fullness through the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. Ask Him for it. Receive it. Freely it has been given to you – now freely give. (Matthew 10:8)
To be led directly by the Holy Spirit even these days is a normal Christian walk. Gal 2:2 KJV And I went up by revelation, and communicated unto them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles
But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth. . . . As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit–just as it has taught you, remain in him. 1 John 2:20, 27 https://comeholyspirit.wordpress.com/2008/11/26/the-holy-spirits-anointing/
Disciples of Jesus Christ were first called “Christians” in Antioch (Acts 11:26) because evidentially their behavior, activity, and speech were anointed, Christ like. (Acts 10:38 KJV) How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
Unfortunately over time, in the often dead, corrupted churches, the real definition of word “Christian” has lost a great deal of its real, original significance and is more often used of someone who is a religious Christian and supposedly has high moral values instead of being a true born again, Holy Spirit anointed disciple of Jesus Christ.
