Jesus promised us the most wonderful gift A gift that would put us into the presence of God
constantly and that gift dear friends is the Holy Spirit
He promised it as the baptism in the Holy Spirit
which was given on the day of Pentecost
to ALL of those who believe in Him
It was promised, the promise is to you and to me so that we can be with our Lord all the time
that we can see the Kingdom of God
because the Spirit of God is living in us
He will open our ears and our eyes so that we can see the Kingdom of God
as Jesus said to Nicodemus in John 3:3-7 You must be born of water and of Spirit and then you can see the Kingdom of God
You can see Jesus on His throne and you are in His presence constantly
That is the Holy Spirit my dear friend, that is promised to you and me
But we need to RECEIVE that Spirit we need to RECEIVE that gift
and we need to be RECEPTIVE we need to WANT IT
We need to want Jesus above everything
and then He will pour out that gift on us the Baptism in the Holy Spirit
I read from John 16:7
Where Jesus said to the disciples, but I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper shall not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.
And Jesus went away and He send the Helper and He came on the day of Pentecost
What does He further say about Him
John 16:13 He says "But when He, the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.
:14 “He shall glorify Me, for He shall take of Mine and shall disclose it to you.
Dear freinds, isn't that a wonderful promise
That is promised to you, that He will guide you into all truth
and He will take from Jesus and give to you, He will tell you what is to come
He is your constant guide You are constantly in the prsence of God
because you have been connected through His Holy Spirit that He puts into you
Dear friends, Jesus said to His disciples and I read from John 14:16
He said and I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you FOREVER;
He gives the Holy Spirit to be with you FOREVER
FOREVER you can be in the presence of God
if you receive the gift of the Holy Spirit
:17 that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not behold Him or know Him,
Dear freinds, the world cannot receive the gift of the Holy Spirit
It is reserved to those who OBEY CHRIST
Those who follow Jesus with all their hearts
As Peter said on the day of Pentecost
In Acts 2:38 He said REPENT and be BAPTIZED and you WILL RECEIVE the GIFT of the HOLY SPIRIT
Dear freinds, we've got to comply with the REQUIREMENTS of CHRIST
We've got to repent of our sins
We've got to be baptized in water
and we have to cleanse ourselves We must prepare the ground for the Holy Spirit of God
to come into us. He will not enter an unsanctified vessel
Dear freind, you knowledge of the Bible will not carry you
what you need is the Holy Spirit of God You need to be Baptized in the Holy Spirit
so that you receive the power of God and He will guide you
And the Spirit of God will be with you FOREVER
You need the Baptism in the Holy Spirit my friend
so that you can see the Kingdom of God
Jesus said, My sheep know My voice, they listen to Me Do you hear His voice?
Is He constantly revealing Himself to you?
Are you living in the presence of God?
Is He real to you?
Are the gifts of the Holy Spirit operating through you?
You need in the first place to be Baptized in the Holy Spirit of God, dear friend.
And then He will guide you into all His truth
and He will put the other gifts into you
so that you can SERVE in His Kingdom
so that you can be an effective SERVANT in the Kingdom of God
Dear freind, sanctify yourself
remove every hindrance Seek Jesus with alll your heart
focus on Him Be utterly holy
and He will put His Spirit into you
Sanctify yourself unto Him
Dedicate yourself and present yourself unto Him
as a holy and acceptable offering
and He will accept you
And He will pour His Spirit onto you
He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit
as He did with all those who believed
on the day of Pentecost and many there after
He gave them the gift of the Holy Spirit with tongues
He gave them a Heavenly tongue
so that they can communicate with God
so that they could speak MYSTERIES TO GOD in their spirit
You need it my freind
Many people don't want it, they will not receive it.
They will not LIVE in the presence of an Almighty God
because they don't want it
Do you want it?
Do you YEARN for the HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD?
Then prepare the ground Open your heart to Jesus
Go spend time in His presence
Praise Him, seek Him, yearn for Him with all your heart my freind
and He will pour it out on you like He did on the day of Pentecost
They were in one accord they were waiting on God
they were yearning, they were waiting for the gift as promised

Are you yearning, are you seeking?
If you seek, you will find.
