(KJV.) I CORINTHIANS 12:3
(13) Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but the Holy Ghost.
THE BOTTOM LINE IS!
Brethren, when Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, ascended into heaven, he asked our Father to sent down the Holy Ghost unto his disciples; the Father agreed, his request was granted, the Holy Ghost descended upon his apostles on the day of Pentecost, while they were all with one accord, in a place, cf. Acts 2: however, the question is, who is the Holy Spirit? do we fully know him? how he operates among believers, within the body of Christ, from the temples of our hearts throughout the world for Christ? the following scriptures sheds the lights upon the subject; let's ponder on these verses; the Holy Spirit is the spirit of truth, given to testify about Jesus Christ, cf. John 15:26, 16:13, 14:17; he is, the comforter, abiding with believers forever, cf. John 14:16; the teacher, to bring all things into remembrance, whatsoever we study from his words, cf. John 14:26; also, the reprover of the world of sins, righteousness, and judgment, cf. John 16:8; therefore, the Holy Spirit has a greater mission to accomplish in the body of Christ, and the world of darkness; let us not ignore his presence within our hearts.
Per the above text, believers need to understand that no man speaking by the Spirit of our Father, (remember the Holy Spirit came from our Father); could call Jesus Christ disgusting; for his power dwells richly within their hearts; for example, during the ministry of Jesus Christ, John his disciple said unto him; "Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us." what was Jesus's response? "Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me: he that is not against us is on our part. cf. Mark 9:38-40; therefore, as believers, let us be careful not to speak ill of our fellow brethren, rather prove the spirits whether they are of our Father, for by their fruits ye shall know them. cf. Matthew 7:16.
Dearly beloved, no human being can proclaim that Jesus is the Lord, except the Holy Spirit dwells in their hearts; therefore, let us learn to differentiate the Holy Spirit, from the Spirit of Antichrist, for anyone with the Spirit of Antichrist can never give credit to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, for, they work indirectly against him; on the other hand, if anyone proclaims the glory of Jesus Christ, that person is not an enemy of Christ, but a fellow brethren; therefore, let us be careful of how we label others, not to blaspheme against the Holy Spirit, cf. Matthew 12:31-33; rather love and accept one another in the body of Christ, leave the judgements to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen and Amen!
