Guarding your heart- covered by the Blood.
You’re not watching alone.
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. If ye love me, keep my commandments. (Watch over my word) And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.”
John 14:12-17 KJV
The Comforting spirit– one who stands on your behalf.
-He brings a security when all things are in upheaval around you.
If you are watching with only your natural eyes and your natural capacity to protect and prepare…than you are not utilizing that which has been given to you.
“So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.”
Mark 16:19-20 KJV
“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.”
Isaiah 54:17 KJV
the purifying spirit
“I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:”
Matthew 3:11 KJV
Not Holy Ghost Fire, but Holy Ghost, and, Fire.
Is fire from the Holy Ghost?
Is fire because of the Holy Ghost?
You receive a set apart (Holy) spirit that causes you to be set apart (Holy) unto God
You cannot be baptized in the Holy Spirit and live a life that is profane.
You were sanctified by the baptism of the Holy spirit. You may have received a gift let’s say (speaking in tongues.) the gifts and callings are without repentance
“For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.”
Romans 11:29 KJV
There is a culture that is created in a Holy Ghost filled Pentecostal church.
That just because your shouting you got it or just because your speaking in tongues you got it. No. If you are not demonstrating the holiness of the Holy Ghost in your life you have not the fullness. You may be baptized in culture but not in that which separates unto God.
You may be immersed in the culture. are simply displaying the Holy Spirit culture
You cannot watch when your spirit’s not awake.
Watch by the Spirit
When the day Of Pentecost was fully come.
It is the spirit that is always watching. The eyes of the spirit man.
Sometimes before you can go you have to terry.
