The exquisite power of forgiveness produces the spiritual energy required for sustained spirit growth. As you unconditionally forgive sin against you, your carnal mind dies. This is the crucifixion of your carnality. The death and decay of this loathsome adversary then becomes the mulch that feeds your new spirit man. The embryonic Son of God that pulses inside you will grow, only as your carnality is killed. Forgiveness is not a trait of the carnal. It is a power given only to God and his Sons. Forgiveness is agape-love made visible, and these two are the keys to the Kingdom of God in you. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
After his resurrection, Jesus Christ comforted and strengthened his newly conceived brothers. To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God. Just prior to his departure, Jesus instructed his disciples to wait for the Holy Spirit. But wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. With these final words Jesus Christ concluded his earthly pilgrimage, and stepped out of the created realm. And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. Jesus had victoriously achieved his own perfection. He came to earth as a feminine spirit of Elohim, and left with all the fullness of God. And all this accomplishment he left behind in the seeds of spirit life planted into his Elohim-Adamite brothers. Jesus Christ magnificently finished all that his Father sent him to do. I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. The next time he visits planet earth in bodily form, he will no more be a maturing spirit, but will manifest the astonishing galactic ministry of a spiritually begotten Son of God.
After Jesus’ ascension the disciples waited just ten more days, when suddenly the Holy Spirit fell upon them like rain. Suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. After your spiritual conception, the Holy Spirit comes to dwell in you. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. The Holy Spirit is the water of God, sent to germinate your new spirit seed. After that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise. This tutor moves into your nursery, to act as personal mentor for the child of God in you. Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees him not, neither knows him: but ye know him; for he dwells with you, and shall be in you. His job is to encourage and educate the infant Son of God that dwells within your mortal frame. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth. This Spirit is your source of revelation and instruction. As the guide for a journey, the Holy Spirit follows a map, steering the spiritual infant within you through life’s successes and failures. Without this guide you may be all dressed up, but you are going nowhere. God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.
The Holy Spirit is a spiritual force from God, a down payment of hope, and the proof of your promised inheritance. If you have not received this earnest, you have no inheritance. Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession. The Holy Spirit is a personality of power, a supernatural guide sent to the heirs of salvation. As a tireless worker he arranges the circumstances of your life, to affect the purpose of God for you. His work encompasses all that enters your life, and ranges from cuddling comfort to ruthless destruction. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me. This word witnesses is the Greek word martus, from which comes the English word, martyr. The Holy Spirit brings you the power to become a martyr. He empowers your willing surrender unto self-sacrifice. By this you can mature the seed of life within you and become agape-love, even as Jesus Christ demonstrated. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. When God orders a fire, the Holy Spirit lights the match. With searing blasts he will consume the dross of your carnality. His resources are limitless as he devises hammers, anvils, and a fiery forge, to temper the mettle of Christ in you. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost.
The abiding presence of the Holy Spirit is God’s reassurance to you that all is well in the unseen realm of the spirit, even while he unravels your earthly life. If you stay spiritually healthy his work will continue in your life, until your carnality is destroyed, and your spiritual Son is birthed. Jesus Christ is the emergency exit from the dark realm of carnal mortality. I am the light of the world. Only through him can you depart the incomplete, corruptible existence of Adam. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. Jesus Christ poured out his life for you, in selfless agape-love. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. Now he has further arranged that you shall possess this same love as your own character. Jesus Christ became the distributor of God’s masculine spiritual life. If you want it, you must get it from him. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Those who obtain the life of Christ, and conceive, and bring this life to maturity, will become what Jesus Christ is. They will become the Sons of God and eventually dwell in the self-sufficiency of autonomous immortality. And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. This is the only process that can produce eternal life in you. Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. Amen.
