How to receive the holy spirit?(The bible way to receive the Holy Spirit. How do we receive the Holy Spirit?, What is the biblical method to receive the Holy Spirit?)We use a manual to use a product properly. I thought if the God exist, he might make a manual for man.
As my small experience, The manual for man is the bible. Although the bible looks imperfect, it¡¯s the perfect way to give god¡¯s message to people. Only if the god make people realize god, people can know his existence.
Man consist of body which we can see and of spirit which we can¡¯t see. Bible says, if the body and spirit are separated, people die.
I fear God. I want to live right and happy. I¡¯ve never studied theology at a school. I try to study the bible following steps. When I was following the steps, sometimes the God told me something. If anyone tries to study the bible in right way, the anyone can talk with the God.
In my experience, if you want to live right and happy and to know bible in right way,
(Do not ask anyone, Do not see any books, Try to do your best with only the bible and prayer.)
Other¡¯s opinion is hard to believe. It could gave you confusion. It could lead you in wrong way if the other didn¡¯t mean it. And you can¡¯t believe yourself. You can just believe the God.
Some store sell Bible Softwares which price are $10 ~ $500. The program will save your time. If you have the program, you don¡¯t have to write down and you can compare with other bibles in other languages. I strongly recommend that you buy a Bible Software.
1.Organize your note about God Jehovah and Jesus while you read bible.
(Jon17:3)And this is the eternal life, that they should know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent.
2.Following the quoted passage of bible about the terms which are important to get holy spirit. Organize the terms and try to do your best. If you feel lead of existence which you can¡¯t see, If something affect you, (voice, vision, dream, revealation, teaching, mind reading and many signs written in the bible) You have to judge whether the something is good or bad. If it's good, it doesn't make you commit a sin. If It's bad, it makes you commit a sin. You can know whether it is right or wrong after you pray and organize the contents of the bible about 'Jehovah God and Jesus' and 'the terms of giving a person the Holy Spirit by Jehovah God'.
(Act5:32)And *we* are [his] witnesses of these things, and the Holy Spirit also, which God has given to those that obey him.
(Act10:34)And Peter opening his mouth said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons,
(Act10:35)but in every nation he that fears himand works righteousnessis acceptable to him.
(Act2:38)And Peter said to them, Repent, and be baptised, each one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ, for remission of sins, and ye will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
(Act2:39)For to you is the promise and to your children, and to all who [are] afar off, as many as [the] Lord our God may call.
(Act11:17)If then God has given them the same gift as also to us when we had believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, who indeed was *I* to be able to forbid God? (Jon7:37)In the last, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried saying, If any one thirst, let him come to me and drink.
(Jon7:37)In the last, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried saying, If any one thirst, let him come to me and drink.
(Jon7:38)He that believes on me, as the scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (Jon7:38)He that believes on me, as the scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
(Jon7:39)But this he said concerning the Spirit, which they that believed on him were about to receive; for [the] Spirit was not yet, because Jesus had not yet been glorified. (Jon7:39)But this he said concerning the Spirit, which they that believed on him were about to receive; for [the] Spirit was not yet, because Jesus had not yet been glorified.
(Gal3:2)This only I wish to learn of you, Have ye received the Spirit on the principle of works of law, or of [the] report of faith?
If you feel your limitation, silently pray for the god with the name of Jesus. He will help you.
It was hard to know ¡®Believing Jesus¡¯ which is the one of terms to get Holy Spirit. I tried to see other Slaves for god. I tried to think if I were a god or if it were a people¡¯s matter.
In trying to practice the bible, God makes people know that the God is real. And God makes people believe that the contents of bible are reality.
The god is getting the bigger infinitely, the smaller people is getting.
And then, classify and organize the bible with some topics which you want to know. I think you can refer to other people¡¯s opinions. You will know that other¡¯s opinions don¡¯t matter but the bible.
If the topic is heaven, use the words; heaven, the kingdom of the heavens, the kingdom of God, kingdom, paradise, hell, death, birth and so on which you think relates to the topic. Then, Use the bible which made of the original language or other language. Pray to god for you to know. After that, organize your note while you read the bible from start to end. Comparing 4 Gospels is good way. And comparing the same contents of New testament quote from the contents of Old testament with the contents of Old testament is also good way to perceive meaning of words. Because the written words are different, they can be good references.
If you can¡¯t judge, try to do your best with prayer. While you are doing like that, the holy spirit teaches you. You could know the realization from the holy spirit.
You will get holy spirit when you believe that Jesus is master of people and Jesus had died and resurrected for remission of Adam¡¯s sin and people¡¯s sin and the law of the contents God said what man have to do or not in the bible except for somethings only for Israel.
And people just try to do his best in his range of realization. Don¡¯t hear anyone¡¯s opinion though the opinion is by me. After the upper 1,2 steps progress a lot, if you will see my writing, refer to the quoted bible¡¯s phrases. Please forgive my shortage and arrogance.
Though someone said or wrote something, the someone is just a people not the God who make laws which are good or evil. People have limitation to lead other people and it could be misleader. Because the teaching of holy spirit and leading are from God, the teaching is right and has power.
3. You follow teaching and leading of Holy Spirit.
(The Holy Spirit will teach you all things)
(Jon14:26)but the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, *he* shall teach you all things, and will bring to your remembrance all the things which I have said to you.
(The Holy Spirit shall guide you into all the truth)
(Jon16:13)But when *he* is come, the Spirit of truth, he shall guide you into all the truth: for he shall not speak from himself; but whatsoever he shall hear he shall speak; and he will announce to you what is coming.
(But you have received the Holy Spirit,* and he lives within you, so you don't need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you all things, and what he)
(1jo2:27)and *yourselves*, the unction which ye have received from him abides in you, and ye have not need that any one should teach you; but as the same unction teaches you as to all things, and is true and is not a lie, and even as it has taught you, ye shall abide in him.
In the effort and practice to know the bible, the god gave me a lot of experience. For example, in name of Jesus casting out demons is from holy spirit's ability. And I couldn't know the god exist. and my life is changed for the God and Jesus.
I just try to do my best, I want to live right and happy as a believer by God's grace.
I pray to bless someone who try to live right with the bible.
(How can Satan cast out Satan?)
(Mar3:22)And the scribes who had come down from Jerusalem said, He has Beelzebub, and, By the prince of the demons he casts out demons.
(Mar3:23)And having called them to [him], he said to them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan?
(Mar3:24)And if a kingdom has become divided against itself, that kingdom cannot subsist.
(Mar3:25)And if a house has become divided against itself, that house cannot subsist.
(Mar3:26)And if Satan rise up against himself, and is divided, he cannot subsist, but has an end.
(Mar3:27)But no one can, having entered into his house, plunder the goods of the strong [man] unless he first bind the strong [man], and then he will plunder his house.
(Mar3:28)Verily I say unto you, that all sins shall be forgiven to the sons of men, and all the injurious speeches [with] which they may speak injuriously;
(Mar3:29)but whosoever shall speak injuriously against the Holy Spirit, to eternity has no forgiveness; but lies under the guilt of an everlasting sin;
(Mar3:30)-- because they said, He has an unclean spirit."But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come
(Casting out demons by the Spirit of God)
(Mat12:28)But if *I* by [the] Spirit of God cast out demons, then indeed the kingdom of God is come upon you.
(Act19:13)And certain of the Jewish exorcists also, who went about, took in hand to call upon those who had wicked spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, I adjure you by Jesus, whom Paul preaches.
(Act19:14)And there were certain [men], seven sons of Sceva, Jewish high priest, who were doing this.
(Act19:15)But the wicked spirit answering said to them, Jesus I know, and Paul I am acquainted with; but *ye*, who are ye?
(Act19:16)And the man in whom the wicked spirit was leaped upon them, and having mastered both, prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.
(Those who live should live for Jesus)
(Ecc12:13)Fear God, and keep his commandments; for this is the whole of man.
(2co5:15)and he died for all, that they who live should no longer live to themselves, but to him who died for them and has been raised.
(Rom14:8)For both if we should live, [it is] to the Lord we live; and if we should die, [it is] to the Lord we die: both if we should live then, and if we should die, we are the Lord's.
(Rom14:9)For to this [end] Christ has died and lived [again], that he might rule over both dead and living.
