Proof no. 4
- When the Holy Spirit comes upon you it is indeed an act of God and a consistent changing of appetite away from sinfulness towards rightousness occurs.
In the epistle 1st John the author who is assumed to be John himself speaks about keeping the word of God and in doing so this is proof of knowing Him. Not just knowing about Yahweh, but actually knowing Him personally. John then goes on to say,
” I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake. I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father. I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.”
1 John 2:12-14 KJV
This is John giving us an example of how we all go through a process of change or, transformation of the Mind. We go from little children to young men to being fathers and so he is speaking to each knowing that this letter will find people in different phases of transformation.
Indeed no one goes from being human to being Jesus-like over night. So when the spirit abides in you, although the change begins suddenly, It is not complete quickly. But you KNOW it has happened because a no doubt change begins from the inside out…. in which we must be patient knowing that God is with us.
If this is not occurring within you then pray for it because it is indeed a proof. Now I know there will be naysayers, but I assure you from my own personal experience that THIS is the truth.
And so now I pray for all who read this to be filled with God’s spirit and helper just as I have been so that you will know the truth as well.
