The Holy Spirit In The Now!

The next day, John saw Jesus coming toward him and cried out, “See, recognize, discern and perceive the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the whole world! “This is He of whom I said would come after me in time, but is actually superior to me because He existed, as He is, in the now. He was before me, because He is before me.“I myself did not recognize Him at first, but now that I can see who He is, I am baptizing with water as a means to reveal Him to the nation of Israel.” Then John went on to say, “I saw the Spirit come from the eternal realm, like a dove that appeared to fly down out of the limitless sky and light on Him. And it, or He, remained on Him and filled Him, making His home in Him. “And that is how I recognized Him, because the One who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is He who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’"
(John 1:29-33 – JITN)




But on the final and most important day of the feast, Jesus just stood up right where He was, and without any timidity or self-consciousness at all, began to yell out at the top of His lungs these words: “Let anyone who is thirsty come to Me and drink! Whoever believes in Me, as the Scriptures have stated, living rivers of life will continuously and freely flow from within their inner beings!” This was His way of introducing them to the ministry of the Holy Spirit, whom those who believed in Him would later receive. The era of the Holy Spirit had not yet begun at this time, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.
(John 7:37-39 – JITN)



“If you really love Me, keep these commands of mine. And I will ask the Father to send you another Helper, just as He sent Me to you. And this Helper will be your Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor, Standby, and He will never have to leave you as I have to leave you now. He will be with you indefinitely…forever. He is the Spirit of Truth, and the world at large cannot comprehend or accept Him at this point, because it has no perception of His reality. But you already know Him, because He has been living with you, and as soon as I am released from this physical manifestation, He will begin to live in you. Just because I will no longer be seen by you in this incarnation, does not mean that you will be orphaned by Me. I will come right back to you as My Spirit-self. In a few hours the world will no longer see this flesh-man, but you will still see Me with your spiritual eyes. You will not be limited any longer to only seeing this Jesus, but you will be freed and released to see this Christ! And because I will transcend and outlive the physical, you will also transcend and outlive the physical. When all this comes together for you, you will realize that I am in My Father, and you are in Me, and I am in you…all together…all connected…all one! And whoever holds on to My commands and does them, proves that they love Me. And those who love Me will experience the reality of the Father’s love for them, and it will ultimately reveal to them who I really am and who I have been all along.”
(John 14:15-21 – JITN)



“I have told you as much as I can while I am still with you in the physical realm. But this Advocate/Helper that I’m telling you about – the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My behalf – will teach you all of this. He will remind you of everything that I have said to you and will make it all make sense to you. So don’t be unsettled about these mysteries. I don’t want to leave you in a state of turmoil."
(John 14:25,26 – JITN)



“If you find that the promoters of this world-system hate you, don’t take it personally. Remember that they hated Me first, and their intense dislike is more about Me than it is about you. If you blindly followed the rules of the religious world-system, its proponents would love you. But you are non-conformists and iconoclasts like Me, so the people who feel threatened by you will hate you. People who do not walk in the light always hate and fight what they don’t understand. So don’t forget this: A servant is not greater than his master. If people mistreat Me, they will mistreat you. It comes with the territory. But if they have done what I told them, then they will do what you tell them to do. Basically, people will do to you exactly what they did to Me, because you belong to Me and they don’t know the One who sent Me. If I hadn’t been so open and candid with them, they would not be guilty of the sin of closed-minded unbelief. But now they have no excuse; from now on there is no excuse for anyone refusing to walk in the light. But the bottom line is that whoever hates Me, hates My Father, also. You surely must realize that I have done things that no one else has ever done, and I have done them right before the eyes of the general public. If I had not been so visible – if I had not made the truth so accessible – they would not be guilty. But many of them have seen and heard it all and still hate both Me and My Father. That is why the Scriptures are true when they say, ‘The people hated Me for no good reason.’ But when The Helper comes, whom I will send from the Father, He will be revealed as the Spirit of Truth, and He will tell you all about Me. He will fill in all the blanks for you and will make all of this make sense to your spirit and to your mind. Then you will be empowered to also easily tell others about Me, because you have been with Me from the beginning and you will know exactly what to say." (John 15:18-27 – JITN)



“But you need to realize that this is really a new beginning for us all! It is to your advantage that I go away, because if I do not leave this fleshly incarnation, the Holy Spirit cannot come to you. But if I leave this realm, I will personally be able to send Him to you. And when He comes, He will show everyone around the world the truth about sin and God’s justice and about how judgment works. The Spirit will show them that they were wrong about Me – that it was a sin to reject Me and not believe in Me. He will show them the truth about righteousness, and they will be able to understand it then, because I will be with the Father and you won’t see Me in this present incarnation again. And He will show them the truth about judgment, because God has already judged the so-called ruler of this world. I really have so many more things to say to you, but I think that you are already saturated and a little overwhelmed with all this. But don’t worry about it. When the Spirit of Truth is finally revealed, He will guide you into all the truth that there is. He will not speak on His own and tell you something different than what I have told you. He will only tell you what He has heard from Me, and He will give you the insight to know what is ahead so that you can actually see into the future. The Spirit will glorify Me, because He will take My message and make it global and universal. And He will declare it to you, directly. Everything that the Father has is mine. That is why it is so important that the Spirit takes My message and integrates it into your consciousness. In just a short while you will not be able to see Me with the natural eye, but then you will be able to perceive Me by the Spirit, because I am returning to the Father in the now.”
(John 16:7-16 – JITN)




Once again He said to them, “Peace be to all of you; just as the Father sent Me into this dimension, now I am sending you to all the people of world.” Then He took a deep breath and began to breathe and blow on them, and into them, in the same way that God had breathed into Adam in the creation. As He continued to blow on them, He began to say, “Receive…receive…receive the Holy Spirit. Receive the power to forgive sins; if you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you refuse to forgive them, they are unforgiven. You now have the same power and authority on the earth that I have had, not just to heal diseases, but to forgive sins, as well.”
(John 20:21-23 – JITN)




Be filled with the Spirit today!

Bishop I say this with the utmost respect for you. You say things and have said things that have truly changed my outlook about God. But even as good and filled with as much wisdom as your words are, when you put Jesus' words on the post today, well,...He just simply can't be outdone.

These are scriptures that I have loved and continue to grow in.

The wording in JITN makes them even more real and inspiring.

Today at 2:00 pm I will be attending the funeral of a blessed man of God under whose ministry my mother, father, younger sister and I all recieved the baptism of the Holy Ghost at the same time at an AOG revival meeting around 1967.

This man was also instrumental in our family growing to understand the gifts of the Spirit from a point of view beyond our Southern Baptist influences.

I am happy that I can honor him as someone who has grown in understanding even farther because of his ministry of the Word early in my life.

The Holy Spirit in the Now is ever reminding my heart to embrace all things good. Memories are good if we use them as benchmarks of growth and do not hold on to them as facts for today. Desire is good if it provides a clear goal for development and does not cloud the plan for today. The very best of all things good though is to know the Holy Spirit is with you right now.

Thank you for that, Bishop.

Remember the Wilburn Fisher family with me today.

Hello Buddy (Holy Spirit),
Thanks for being my leveler and my friend. You are always welcome in my place and in my space.

I pressed a bit too hard, hoping to make Body Builders this morning, until it was divinely clear being there was not in my destiny today. And all is well.

Gosh, Bishop, the picture alone got me going!

Bountiful Blessings to all,

Dennis Caldwell said...

Holy Spirit of Christ,
Grace me today with the continual baptism of your presents. So that I will be more like Jesus Christ and so be Christ to those that I meet and interact with today. But not just like Jesus, but a new creation born from your fertilization of the spirit within me. That new life would grow out from within as I become a unique son of God with the qualities and characteristics that are unique to me mixed with the power that only you have. To go out into the world and be that part of the body of Christ that you have created me to be. I am not exactly like Jesus or anyone else and that is good. Though others will see the similarities they will also see that uniquely new creation that you have created me to be. That you might use me to touch lives in a way and a work that only I can fulfill in the part you have given me in your perfect plan. Oh great helper of the helpless, help me to be that part of Christ that I am. Amen

Dennis

Kettly said...

Dear Bishop,

Once again I need you to know this, not that I don’t appreciate you. I do, it just that I do not want you to say “I am just a man”! I know, God knows, I know that. But the spirit of God is so very strong in you that even the way conduct yourself change. Not a bad thing. But, a good thing. A great thing.

Thank you so much, for listening to me, and for taking an interest on what I was saying. I feel like I was walking a dimension since I’ve been a member in the Church. Yesterday, I told someone that I can see myself changing. Because of the way I used to judge people that were around me. And now I feel like everyone has a right to choose their gender and to work out their own salvation with fear and trembling towards God. So, who am I to judge what you do, when no one else is judging what I do.

“IT’S BEEN SAID: THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS LOVE.

LOVE IS THE GIVING OF YOU FOR THE GOOD OF ANOTHER. THEW GREATEST EXPRESSION OF LOVE JOHN 3:16, “FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE AN EVERLASTING LIFE. “THE FRUIT OF LOVE IS AN EXPRESSION THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD’S OWN NATURE OF LOVE.AND THE QUALITY OF THAT LOVE IS DESCRIBE BEAUTIFUL IN 1CORINTHIANS 13:4-7.

LOVE IS PATIENT AND KIND. IT DOES BOAST, IT IS NOT PROUD.

AND THAT’S WHAT SHOW IN YOU TODAY. LOVE AND PATIENT!

THANK YOU FOR MAKING ME, FEEL THAT I WAS PART OF THE MIDST.


LOVE YOU & GOD BLESS.

In a hurry today, I stopped to ensure the contractors knew what work needed to be done. Had no idea a gift was waiting.

It came in the form of a man I just met that wanted to tell me about his 6yr old son. He went on and on…and on. Early on I thought "oh man! I gotta go!" then just as quickly the memory of today’s word, "be filled with the Spirit". okay???
As the stories went from one to another, he says, "He wants to be just LIKE me."
And then I knew.

Y,ALL--This guy’s joy in his son was HUGE! Especially in his desiring to be like his dad. He recounted his son’s successes, listed the things he loves to do, laughed at his misunderstandings and fears but especially loved his “I can do it, Daddy, you show me!”

Deep y’all, really deep.

I hope I reflected back at least a small part of what God gave me through that Dad.

Whoa, Johnny! Say THA-A-AT!
Memories are good:
as "benchmarks of growth...
and...not...facts for today."

Desire is good:
"provid[ing] a clear goal for development...
and...not...the plan for today."


Honoring W.Fisher for the Christ he nurtured in you for us.

Sahib,
Got this from a friend of mine. Extremely heat depreived

Just as you would not want to do business with someone you can't trust, this law simply stated is:

When you can completely trust the process of the universe and life, you will be supplied abundantly and you will be able to make your life work just the way you want it.

And the trust you give and have must be 100% or it is zero.

It cannot be given under one condition and not under another.

There are many things we trust with our lives and have no concern about.

Such as: the sun will come up every day;

the law of gravity works all the time;

the pilot who pilots the plane we fly on, is competent;

our garbage is picked up on certain days.

If we could not trust the things we take for granted will occur without any effort on our part, the fear for our well being would be so great we would not be able to enjoy our lives.

Can you imagine what the world would be like, if we could not trust the food we buy, the water we drink or that the people we depend on would not manipulate or harm us?

But the only way we can expect others to trust us is, we need to be trustworthy ourselves, and especially to ourselves. Unfortunately, many people don't trust themselves and the judgments and decisions they make.

Therefore, they experience disharmony with their lives and their world.

~Sidney Madwed


Trusting all is well

Erik said...

We The Created, in order to continue perfecting our union with each other, God, The Holy Spirit and The Christ, and ourselves; we each use our own words and intent to edify the rest of creation we come into contact with, while not diminishing ourselves. All of creation has certain, unalienable rights for Love, Joy, Peace and right standing with each other and God. The right to live under the authority of Love.

We, The Created, enjoy first looking to ourselves, our family, our community, our church, our country, our culture for change and to make amends, before we look for it from extended selves, cultures, communities. Our power is first within each of us, we speak truth only in love to each other, without limits on forgiveness or encouragement, since we know we are anchored in The Creator.

Any situation we want to change, we first look to see what we did to get there, and what we can do differently going forward. We exhaust all of our own efforts changing ourselves, the change we inspire in each other with our faith, love, transparency and trust in God, The Source of all creation.

The Holy Spirit breathes through us, We The Created, breathe out this perfecting as The Holy Spirit testifies through us, to us, all flesh. We are, and we are transformed.

Hey All

Just thinking about what happened last Fri. Yvonne & I came to prayer & afterwards we went to find my mothers grave. I hadn't been there for about 15+ years. I knew we were close but really wasn't sure where because the area had changed a lot. One road split off the main road & I thought I saw a graveyard in the split. I turned around but to my surprise there was no graveyard. We drove a little more and saw a funeral home . I went in and asked for directions. All I knew that it was a graveyard with a military section. The man inside kept asking if it was near a church but I was sure it wasn't He told me there were only 2 graveyards in the area without a church one was on Tara Blvd. but I knew that wasn't it. The other he said was 2 lights up turn Left and on the right was the graveyard. As I drove into the graveyard things started to look familiar. I drove around and stopped where I thought my mom was buried. I didn't want to get out because I wasn't really sure. We went to the office and sure enough we were in the right place & I stopped right at my mom's grave site. I got the info I needed to bury my dad. All I have to pay for is the burial. I really feel The Holy Spirit showed me the way to the grave site.
How Cool Is That

"Don't you see the nail prints that are also in your hands my children, where you were crucified with Christ, don't you see that you are resurrected with Christ to be seated with him in the Heavenly realms, I long to hear your praises, I cup my ear to hear your voices pouring your hearts out before me, my heart sings, my heart makes melody with you, my Family. The fire is always burning and the light is always on and I am forever ready to receive you."

Thank you Father, You are the melody, You are the Symphony in our hearts!

the Holy Spirit is a 'smooth operator'. The more I listen, the more I learn.
The warning signal, which is ALWAYS an extreme gut feeling, has revealed on numerous occasions situations and/or people our children were involed in or with. Resulting in outcomes that have not always been pleasant.
Knowing God is in control and somehow he would work it out is the only consolation.

'Rough seas' in my marriage has been revealed by the Holy Spirit by means of this 'gut feeling'. Oh the times I recognized the 'symptoms', but refused to (at first) accecpt the reponsibility of the battle. For I have learned this feeling generally is not for a short term situation. It's a
b a t t l e! My God is faithful and true to his word. That is my battle gear.

Thank you Father for your Gift to us, the Holy Spirit!!!

That green nearly gave me a heart attack at 2:30am. Feel like I'm in the 'Outer Limits.' First time for everything, so EEEWWWWWW, Bish, EEEWWWWW! (sorry)
Missed church tonight... (last night)... whatever. Running around like crazy, and didn't even eat dinner till 7:30. Pulling an all-nighter. Seeing my sis at the 'rents' on Sat to celebrate her B-day & Mother's Day. Gotta get this scrapbook done. Bad thing about being an artist is that you want EVERYTHING to look artsy. It's coming along nicely, but MAN! Much more to do. Thought I'd take a quick peek at the blog. Hope you all have a fabulous Thursday. Have a hunch I'll be sleeping most of the day... zzzzzzzzzzzz...

GOOD MORNING FROM MY UNIT AT THE HOSPITAL. I AM LESS BUSY, SO I DECIDED TO BLOG ON THE HOLY SPIRIT.
THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE POWER OF THE CHURCH AND THE STRENGHT OF EVERY BELEIVER. MY GREATEST DESIRE FOR THE BODY OF CHRIST AND CITN IS NOT ONLY FOR THE ABIDING PRESENCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT BUT ALSO FOR THE MANIFESTATIONS OF THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AS PROMISED IN ACTS 1;8. IT WILL ONLY TAKE THE ANNOITING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT TO WAKE UP THE NATIONS FROM THE DEEP SLEEP OF SPIRITUAL DEADNESS. THE WORLD NEED US, THE SICK, THE RAPISTS, ADDICTS, REJECTED, PRISONERS,PROSTITUTES, DRUNKARD, HOMELESS, HIV INFECTED, SINGLE SUFFERING MOTHERS,AND WIDOWS ALL NEED TO SEE THE MANIFEATATION OF THE ANNIOTING OF GOD. LIKE IN THE DAYS OF ELIJAH AND IN THE DAYS OF PETER WHERE HIS SHADOW WAS HEALING PEOPLE. WHAT IS OUR EXCUSE, THE SAME GOD YESTERDAY, TODAY AND TOMORROW. I AM DEEPLY CONCERNED, CAN ANYBODY HELP ME MAKE SENSE TO WHY THE POWER OF GODS SPIRIT IS LESS IN OUR DAYS. FORGIVE ME IF I AM WRONG. TOO MUCH TALK, CRUSADE UPON CRUSADE, SEMINARS UPON SEMINAR BUT WHERE IS THE LORD GOD OF ELIJAH WHO HAS CALLED US INTO A BETTER COVENANT WITH HIS SON JESUS CHRIST. THIS ARE SOME OF THE QUESTIONS MY SICK AND DESPERATE PATIENTS ASK ME SOMETIMES. I KNOW THAT GOD IS ON THE THRONE, AND THE RAIN OF PRAYERS WILL OPEN US TO THIS HIGHER MOVE OF THE SPIRIT. SO COME OUT FOR FRIDAY AM PRAYERS AND JOIN CITN INTERCESSORS TO BRING GODS POWER ON CITN. THROUGH PRAYER CITN WILL BE A POOL OF HEALING STREAM AND A TABERNACLE OF DELIVERANNCE WHERE WE AS SONS OF JACOB WILL POSSESS OUR POSSESSIONS. I WILL NEVER FORGET LAST YEAR WHEN GOD SHOWED ME IN A DREAM A MENTAL CASE MAN WHO RAN INTO CITN AND WAS INSTANTLY HEALED. WE HAVE TO PUT OUR FAITH IN ACTION, COME IF YOU CAN TO PRAY. JESUS PRAYED, THE EARLY APOSTLES PRAYED SO WE AT THIS DISPENASTION NEED TO PRAY TRAVAILING PRAYERS FOR UNTO HIM THAT ANSWERTH PRAYER SHALL ALL FLESH COME. TALK TO ME, LOVE YOU MERCY.

Another masterpiece!
That should be titled, "Creation's Bill of Rights".
"...we use our words and intent to edify the rest of creation we come in contact with, while not diminishing ourselves." That's powerful. We can't be diminished as long as we build others up because we are built up in the process.
"Any situation we want to change, we first look to see what we did to get there."
Man, talk about self-responsibility. Taking 100%responsibility for everything and everyone and every situation that enters our lives is most direct route to healing of any sort. Not only healing for ourselves, but for the person or thing or situation that invades into our experience.
When you can, Google: ho'o ponopono. Ho'o(to make,create)ponopono(perfect,perfection) is an ancient Hawaiian disipline centerd around responsibility and forgiveness leading to healing. Very powerful stuff.

Thanks for your wisdom.

Strike "onto", as in invades "onto'..., from the record and add an "e" to centered. Just makes better sense that way. Nothing like looking like a second grader when you're trying to have revelation.
