(KJV.) II CORINTHIANS 4:7-10
(7) But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
(8) We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
(9) Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
(10) Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
FOUNTAINHEAD OF POWERS
Brethren, when souls accept Jesus Christ into their hearts as Lord and Savior, immediately, the Holy Spirit comes to dwell within their innermost spirits; their mortal bodies becomes sanctified vessels, his holy habitations of his lights, holding enormous powers of our Father, for utilization of his manifestations on earth: these works are done miraculously by our Father, through his spirits, not from human self efforts; however, many times, believers pray to receive the Holy Spirit; if we already received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we already have the Holy Spirit; if we do not feel his presence within our souls, we need to double check ourselves, what may be contaminating our spirits, that may be reasons why the Holy Spirit will remain silence within our innermost spirits, at times we grieve him by our actions and behaviors; disobedient to his reproves continuously; in this aspects, we have to pray, ask for his forgiveness, we do not have to stressfully go above and beyond for his powers, he gives gifts according to our callings, and capabilities to utilize them; we just have to be humble under his authorities, teachings, guidances and reproves: we are his earthen vessels from the day of our redemption, he never leaves believers alone in this world of darkness, but seals their lives with his powers until the day of reconciliation with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior in the firmament of glory; also, the Holy Spirit may manifest gregariously or silently when anointing believers among congregations; regardless, he does not forsake them entirely, in other for him to manifest his anointing powers mightily for his glorifications in our lives, we have to acknowledge him as a person, the third party of our Father, the Holy Trinity, open up doors of our hearts unto him through prayers, praises and adorations, surrender our lives unto him, talk with him everyday, for his guidances in our daily decision makings,
One of the major goal of the Holy Spirit, is to transform, regenerate, refurbish souls, guide and seal them until day of reconciliation; after his works are perfectly done: his next agendas in the lives of saved, sanctified believers, are to further his works through their souls, use them as instruments of his glory, to touch unbelieving souls, bring them out of darkness into his marvelous lights: all these are works of our Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, and not from self efforts; that anyone can boast, all glory belongs to our Father: for believers to receive more anointing powers of the Holy Spirit, it is necessary to reverence him, walk in humility and in boldness at same times, know that there is a creator, the Almighty Father, giver of all things, accept facts that, Jesus Christ is our fountainhead of powers, we cannot do anything for him, but without him; for he said, "I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.: (John 15:5); all things are done through his power grace, without the Holy Trinity, believers lives are not completed in him; we need the Holy Trinity, our Father, his Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit in our lives at all times: most believers, receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit, spiritual manifestations right away at the alter, when saved, and speak in tongues; while others do not feel any impact, sensations of holiness at all, but it does not mean that he did come into their hearts or not with them; he is always present, and will forevermore be present with believers,
Brethren, if the Holy Spirit is actively involved in our lives, there are no troubles of this world that we cannot overcome by the blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; regardless of what bewails our souls, as a comforter, the Holy Spirit will strengthens us with faiths, to trust in Jesus Christ, and persevere and overcome difficult situations victoriously, that we may be able to testify of his deliverances; therefore, let us acknowledge his presence within our hearts forevermore and yield ourselves to his purposes,
Dearly beloved, when we set our minds on Jesus Christ, what he went through, his sufferings death on the cross and resurrection from the tomb, for our iniquities, gain victory over the enemy, and was rewarded, given a name above all names, that at the mention of his name, all knees must bow and acknowledge him as Savior of the world; believers, our sufferings are not in vain; regardless of our negative situations currently, blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior conquered it all; we are more than conquerors over our situations as well; and know that no matter what may be going on currently, we are victorious, same way, Jesus rose up from the death, we will rise up again from our present situations, with double portion glories, blessings, victories, peace and joy forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
