How to receive Holy Spirit -what does holy spirit do

Genesis:1:1-2

“1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now
the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the
deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.”

In the beginning when God was forming the earth, the spirit of God was hovering over it. It was the holy spirit of god. Since God created the Man in his image, the spirit of God as well is within us. Our body is the temple of God. Therefore, we must honor it, look after it. Not abuse it by consuming, drugs, Marijuana and cocaine. And other unhealthy stuff.
It is imperative that you maintain your body in best shape by exercising daily.

1 Corinthians 6:19 says “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your bodies.”

What it means is that we were created by God, first through Adam then redeemed through death of Christ on cross by shedding his blood for sins.

God, the Father and the Holy Spirit:

Out of the three The spirit of god, the Holy Spirit is our “helper” He helps us to pray; and prayers through Holy Spirit reaches Father God. But for the Holy Spirit to intercede on your behalf, you must “yield” to him  first.

Jesus died and unless he goes away the Helper or the Holy Spirit will not come. And God specifically said that he was going to send a helper. 

John 14:15-18 ” If you love me you will keep my commands, And I will ask the Father and he will give you another Helper”

The Holy Spirit is omnipresent and will help you 24/7 as the Holy Spirit lives within you. He will direct you and guide you and help you in many other ways. In the ancient times the holy spirit guided the king of Moab Judges 3:10-14

It also says anyone who speaks a word against Jesus will be forgiven, but he, who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven. The holy spirit enables you to understand holy scriptures as he guides you.

When Jesus died for our sins on the cross, the righteous requirements of God was met. And we were freed from eternal death. If you live according to the flesh you will have your mind set on what flesh desires, and those who live according to spirit, have set their mind according what spirit desires. The mind controlled by flesh is death. But the mind controlled by spirit is life and peace.

Tongues, the praying in the Spirit-

On the day of Pentecost, apostles were filled with the Holy Spirit. And they began to speak in other languages as the spirit enabled them. When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, you will be given the same gift, to pray in the spirit or tongues. When you pray in the spirit, your prayers to holy spirit are most effective. And Father hears them. This is a gift God.

John 3:5-8 “Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. 6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. 7 You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”

Here Jesus is saying that unless your born of water and the spirit you can not enter the kingdom of God. What it means is that you must follow this command if you are to receive the holy spirit.

Acts 2:38 says, if you repent and get baptized, you will receive the Holy Spirit.

Yes, for anyone to receive the Holy spirit, he must first repent of his sins, and get baptized by water, and then ask for the holy spirit, saying “oh, mighty Holy Spirit, please come into my heart” and he will reside with you forever.

Then, attend a church that believes in the father, Sin and the Holy Spirit.

How the Holy Spirit, helps us, guide us:

Holy spirit will guide us in our daily activities.

When you need anything, your Father in heaven knows and even before you ask  he will give it to you. This is the power of the Holy Spirit

It also warns you of impending accidents. Many times I, myself received warnings, and by listening to it I changed my plans and it saved my life.

Once, when I was supposed to take a flight from London to Toronto, I was warned by the Holy Spirit not to take it. And it saved my life, as unfortunately it crashed at the Toronto Pearson airport that day.

And when I drive it guides me on the route I should take. It has saved time from getting into crowded streets. It stopped accidents from happening.

One day, I was on my way to work. And I was warned by the spirit not to speed and later, I saw an approaching Police petrol car.

It helped me to select the right clothes, the correct shop to buy groceries. It also guides me to best discounts. It warns me of any impending dangers, whenever I am in public.

It warns me of co-workers who back stab me by sneaking to the boss. It shows who my real friends are. And when I am in the mall, it shows some people who could be a potential threat to me personally. And I avoid them.

It tells me when I play Tennis, my opponents weaknesses. It tells me how to make money. And opportunities. It guides me in the path of prosperity. It shows me my weaknesses and tells me when I should stop a certain task. For example, any exercise while I am in the gym.

He tells me to be cautious about oncoming traffic, the erratic drivers. I use caution. He tells me not to argue with my co-workers, not complain to my boss for everything that is wrong. And he asks me to show mercy on whom I should have mercy.

Conclusion-

The holy spirit is your “helper” in life, when praying and reaching to the father God in heaven. Many times in my life, I faced death. But with the assistance of holy Spirit, I came out unscathed.
