The Role of the Holy Spirit in the lives of the servants of God

"But as it is written, Things which eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, which God has prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. For what man knoweth the things of man except the spirit of man within him? So no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. But we have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things freely given to us by God. Which things also we speak, not with words of human wisdom, but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. Now the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness, and can not understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. But what is spiritual judges all things, and he is judged of no man. " 1 Corinthians 2:9-15
We can not imagine all that God has in store for us in this life and in eternity. The Holy Spirit comforts us, cares for us, this is our situation. But for that to happen requires a dedication to God and His will simply assuming the faith. Hebrews 11:1 "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."!
For God to act in our life, must first believe. If we do not open our hearts with faith, believing that God will do what he wants us, and if there is no unconditional surrender to Him, nothing happens.
The unconditional surrender to God is responsible for breaking the inertia of unbelief to faith in the liberating spirit. No surrender to faith is subtracted, with the delivery faith is multiplied. The delivery represents a supernatural manifestation of faith, whose result is the strength and character building for a live centered on God's purpose, and enables us to receive the inheritance reserved for those who believe. And the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives depends on our delivery. And a courageous delivery. By means of delivery can grow from faith to faith, ie, move from one level to another.
Abraham relied on God, "Abraham believed the Lord and the Lord reckoned - to him for righteousness." Gen.15: 6.
For the purpose of God be fulfilled in Abraham, required him to surrender to the Father Abraham was sent to distant lands, giving God a future that was uncertain to the human eye, but actually part of the purpose of God. And the delivery had its biggest test when God asked the sacrifice of Isaac.
Isaac on the altar consciously surrendered without argument, he knew he would die. The act of surrender at the altar is more advantageous than unbelief because of the results. In all the experiments are the false and true. The delivery of Isaac on the altar was irrefutable proof that when man truly give God's providence and comes with dealing with their children.
Our sacrifice today is summed up in a total surrender to God, taking away the things of the world and approaching the heavenly things. "Present your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God which is your reasonable service." Romans 12:1 is to leave things in the world and seek God in spirit and in truth.And the way we think about the work of the Holy Spirit must be reviewed each time. God wants to reveal as great an intimacy with the Holy Spirit, but it is necessary to believe in him and let us be guided by Him, "For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God" (Romans 8:14) When we are guided by the Holy Spirit, He leads us to amazing experiences. But that only comes with the opening of our heart and with the prayer of a priest (pastor), that with the imposition of hands releases the authority of the Holy Spirit upon us.
The imposition of hands is the penultimate move of the Spirit before the times of refreshing. The Devil has held that principles of the doctrine. To all who Jesus healed, touched them first.From the beginning, God used the laying on of hands as a point of contact supernatural creative power of the Holy Spirit was upon him and this made it flow healing, transformation and awareness. God touched Adam and he slept deeply, his work resulted in a deep sleep genuinely formed by God. Abraham on the occasion of a new pact passed by a deep sleep after he fought against birds of prey. Elijah went through profound experiences in dreams with angels of God. More was Daniel who had more experience with laying on of hands, and Isaiah. (Is. 6:1-3).
We can not distort the reality of the existence of the complete man: spirit, soul and body. Often we do not know what's going on in the world of the human spirit. As much as we can feel what goes on in your psyche. For the Holy Spirit work in us, we must be ready for the spiritual experiences that God has set aside for us. And it often goes against what we learn and ultimately affects our faith, making us doubt the work of the Holy Spirit upon us and deprive us of just know this beautiful experience. But the Holy Spirit has always acted in their children, and this divine operation is different in humans and the supernatural.
1. Some give themselves up to the altar unconsciously, as Isaac (Gen. 22:1-10).2. Others fall of awe and power of God's word (John 18:6).3. Others do not bear the brunt of the anointing and fall into deep sleep (Dan. 10:7-17).4. Others fall in spirit, as John (Rev. 1:10).5. Others sleep deeply as Adam (Gen. 2:21).6. Others fall because they give off many virtues because of the effort, as Abraham (Gen. 15:11). Throughout the day he was driving away the birds of prey, types of demons. Usually happens with pastors after expulsion of many demons.7. Others fall by recognizing its weakness, as Peter (Luke 5:8).8. Others fall possessed, not all fall over, as it is not true that only possessed the fall.
This spiritual activity can reach as many believers as a way of comfort, relief, care, but also to some degree can reach unbelievers, for deliverance, healing, and etc ...
1. Unbelievers:Practice areas: Body and soul
a) Fall - They are conscious at times.b) Effective Area - Body.
2. We Christians:Area - Body and Soul
a) Fall conscious (Dan. 10:7-17). But listen to what happens around him as Daniel.
b) In his spiritual being something happens: Healing, cleansing, forgiveness, etc.. Most of those who fall are not taught individually. Many ministers do not finish the work that only begins to show the pride that has the "anointing to bring down people." It is necessary that the minister continue to pray for those who fell for God to act through.
3. Consecrated (pastors).Practice areas: Spirit, soul and body.
The "consecrated", here are those that are doing some kind of prolonged fasting, another type of special service to the Lord.The experiences are deeper, as was the case of John the Evangelist.
a) "fell dead."b) Two cases: Rapture rapture of the soul and the soul and the human spirit.
These cases are deeper spiritual and generate better results.
The cases of Daniel and John are interesting because they both saw a person and had the same results in different dimensions.Daniel fell physically, and John fell in body and spirit (Dan. 10:8 and Ap.1 :13-15), since it was in the Spirit, while his body was dead on Earth.
There are other passages in the Bible where the Glory of God has caused many to be ground by the power of God:
"It happened, leaving the priests of the sanctuary, a cloud filled the house of the LORD. And the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud, for the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD. " 1 Kings 8:10-11
"It happened, when they uniformly blew the trumpets, and singing, to make themselves heard with one voice in praising and thanking the LORD, and they raised their voice with the trumpets, cymbals and other musical instruments, and praising the Lord, saying: Because he is good, because his mercy endureth forever, so the house was filled with a cloud, namely the house of the LORD 14 And the priests could not stand, to minister because of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD filled the house of God. " 2 Chronicles 5:13-14
"The Lord is the same yesterday, today and forever" Hebrews 13:8, so why not believe that he acts the same way you acted before? The only difference is that the people at that time God gave more freedom to do what he wanted on it. Today, we put purely carnal thoughts and questions before the work of the Holy Spirit. If we see someone fall because the Holy Spirit is the taking, just launched our weak mind (because we do not have the mind of Christ, 1 Corinthians 2:16 "For who hath known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. "), and then question what belongs to God, to him alone, let it be spiritual, and therefore not discern spiritual things (But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God, because are foolishness to him, and can not understand them, because they are discerned espiritualmente.1 Corinthians 2:14).
To know and live the action of the Holy Spirit is necessary to have the mind of Christ. Want to live with Him and understand Him.
Let yourself be touched by the Holy Spirit.
It may take as it can be fast. But believe, in time it will take you to an unforgettable experience!
"Let us know if we follow on to know the Lord ...!" Hosea 6.3
