I JOHN 4:13

 

“By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.”

THIS IS A PASSAGE WHICH CAN TRULY ONLY BE UNDERSTOOD BY THOSE WHO ARE ALREADY WALKING WITH THE LORD. JESUS/YESHUA HAD TOLD HIS DISCIPLES THAT AFTER HE LEFT TO BE WITH HIS FATHER IN HEAVEN, THE FATHER WOULD DISPATCH HIS HOLY SPIRIT TO DWELL WITHIN THEM, MAKING THEM ONE WITH FATHER AND SON.

THE HOLY SPIRIT MANIFESTS HIS PRESENCE WITHIN, AND TO, THOSE WHO ARE TRUE BELIEVERS, AND NONE OTHER.

DEPENDING ON THE DEGREE OF INTIMACY, OF COURSE, BELIEVERS MAY KNOW HIS PRESENCE BECAUSE OF LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER, AND OTHERS. BELIEVERS CAN KNOW HIS PRESENCE BY WHAT JESUS/YESHUA REFERRED TO IN JOHN 16 – i.e., that HE WILL GUIDE US INTO GOD’S TRUTH; HE WILL TELL US OF THINGS TO COME, & WILL REMIND US OF THOSE THINGS WHICH JESUS/YESHUA TAUGHT. HE BRINGS SCRIPTURES ALIVE TO US. WE CAN COMMUNICATE WITH HIM & HE WILL RESPOND.

MY OWN EXPERIENCE IS THAT MY AWARENESS OF GOD’S PRESENCE BY THE POWER OF HIS HOLY SPIRIT IS NOT ONLY A SOURCE OF COMFORT & PEACE, BUT MY PERSONAL, PRIVATE TUTOR, COUNSELLOR, AND MY BEST FRIEND. HE IS MORE REAL TO ME THAN MOST PEOPLE IN MY LIFE.
