RECONNECT TO HOLY SPIRIT POWER
Jesus Re-Connects us to God!
But you shall receive power
(ability, efficiency, and might)
When the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and
You shall be my witness...to the ends
(the very bounds) of the earth. Acts 1:8
Holy Spirit is God's Spirit
Holy Spirit is God!
A Part of the Tri-Unity of God
God the Father,
God the Son, God the Holy Spirit
DNA, in layman’s terms, is the “blueprint” of inherited genetic molecular material for our unique identities. Our DNA comes from the combination of genes contributed by each of our biological parents. When there is a question regarding a child’s parentage a paternity test, using blood samples from one or both parents, is taken. The results of this test undeniably reveals a child’s biological parents through their similar DNA structure. John 3:6, "Humans can reproduce only human life, but the Holy Spirit gives new life from heaven." When we received the gift of eternal life through our acceptance of Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, God breathed new life into us bringing a spiritual birth. At that moment we received heavenly DNA into our souls in the form of the Holy Spirit. Now, we possess two sets of DNA. One physical set from our earthly parents and one spiritual from our heavenly parent. With God’s DNA inside of us, the divine life of God grows. Now, we are radically different than the rest of the world. We are part of a distinct race. We resemble our heavenly Father as evidenced by our new Christ like attitudes, motivations, perspectives, desires, goals, and new godly value system. We have a deep desire to be a blessing to others as God has been a blessing to us. After our spiritual births we are connected eternally to God in such a way that no matter what happens in our futures, our heavenly genetic link to him will not be broken. How can this be? Think about this: Is it scientifically possible to remove the DNA connection we have with our earthly parents? No, because new scientific breakthroughs in molecular research have proven DNA can't be completely removed or dramatically altered due to its complex structure. Is it spiritually possible to remove God's DNA from our souls once we are born again? No. We are linked eternally to him in such a way that no matter what happens in our futures, our heavenly genetic link to God can't be broken. In other words we won't lose or cut our eternal link with God, but we can break our relationship with him. How? By turning our back on him in rebellion. Similar to what a son or daughter does when they choose to disown their birth family. They may never see their family again, but whatever they do or wherever they go it will never change the fact they have a DNA connection to their biological parents. They are still family members, if only through their shared DNA. So if we ever think we've done something to lose eternal life and our spiritual position as a member of God's family, we need to ask ourselves this question:How can I undo my spiritual DNA or my spiritual birth or my salvation? The answer is: We can't. "My sheep recognize my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one will snatch them away from me, for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else. So no one can take them from me." John 10: 27-29 Holy Spirit? is the promised gift Jesus said he would send after he ascended into heaven. In John 16:7 Jesus told His disciples, "It is actually best for you that I go away, because if I don't, the Counselor won't come. If I do go away, he will come because I will send him to you."
The Holy Spirit is the source of a Christian’s purification, sustenance, revival, renewal, and the satisfier of spiritual appetite. He points to Jesus as the Savior and Redeemer. The Holy Spirit enables our hearts to embrace God as our Heavenly Father and he empowers us to spiritually survive. In John 16:12, Jesus implies that the disciples had been taught so much by Jesus during the 3 1/2 years they were together that they had reached a point of saturation. "There is so much more I want to tell you, but you can't bear it now." It was simply impossible for them to take in any more truth at the time. This presented a dilemma. How would Jesus continue to instruct them after he was resurrected and transcended into heaven? Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to continue what he had begun. In other words, the Holy Spirit communicates whatever Jesus tells him to.
God's Holy Spirit is also: Co-creator of earth.
THE One that points to Jesus as the Son of God and Redeemer.
Lovingly referred to as the ‘Hound of Heaven’ as he searches the ends of the earth tracking down every person who has ever lived, is alive now, and will be born in the future to draw each one to Jesus. He also chases after those who have strayed away relationally from the Lord.
The gift given to every child of God to equip and enable them to walk by faith. Walking by faith is a moment to moment dependence on the Holy Spirit as we trust God regardless of the outcome of any given situation. Galatians 4:6-7, "Because you Gentiles have become his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, and now you can call God your dear Father. Now you are no longer a slave but God's own child. And since you are his child, everything he has belongs to you" Holy Spirit is our Heavenly pacemaker causing our hearts to beat in rhythm with God’s.Counselor and Teacher: As our counselor, he listens to us, gives us advice empowers us to make important life choices, but Holy Spirit won’t force us to make a decision or to make any changes. As our teacher, he instructs us in our spiritual growth.
