The first 40+ years of my spiritual life was centered on… just God. The next 20 was centered on God the Father, and God the Son… that is to say… Jesus. The last 5 or 6 years, my spiritual life has been centered around … God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, that is to say… The Holy Trinity. While I do not ‘pretend’ to understand all the MYSTERY surrounding the Holy TRINITY… I will say, I am now… beginning to put the puzzle together.
The Holy Spirit is like ‘the voice’ of the Holy Trinity. Jesus said in… John 14:1 – “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me.” Then, in John 14:25-26, Jesus concludes, by saying: “All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”
In verse 26; Jesus says ‘very clearly’ that the Holy Spirit is… The Voice… of God the Father, and God the Son. The Holy Spirit is ‘picking up where Jesus left off’ …after His crucifixion. God told us in Hebrews 8:10 – “For this is the Covenant that I will make with the House of Israel after those days, says the Lord; I will put My Laws into their minds, and I will write them of their Hearts. And I well be their God, and they shall be my people.”
This was all done through the Holy Spirit. Having the Holy Spirit ‘directing traffic,’ in one’s life… is like… having a CONVERSATION with God. For others, I suppose, the Holy Spirit came upon them earlier in life. Speaking for myself… I can say with AUTHORITY; Do yourself a “big favor,” and STUDY all you can on the Holy Spirit. DON’T WAIT until you’re 75 years old to “realize” that the Holy Spirit has been working in you since the beginning. But, for me… I was working against Him.
The Holy Spirit KNEW ME, but I didn’t KNOW Him. Knowing the Holy Spirit, will open up a ‘whole new dimension of understanding’ of the SCRIPTURE… giving ‘new meaning’ to your WALK with God. You will SEE THINGS more CLEARLY; things that you’ve not seen before. The Holy Spirit, as true with the Apostles… will open up your heart, mind, and soul; which then becomes the ‘dwelling place, of the Holy Spirit.
By sharing this perspective with you… I hope you don’t wait your entire life to FIND the Holy Spirit, as I did. If your journey ‘on the road to Heaven’… does not INCLUDE The Father, The Son, and THE HOLY SPIRIT… then you are on the WRONG road.
