Nothing in this world is more important than the guarantee of the eternal Salvation of the soul. Jesus said: What is the use of conquering the whole world and losing one’s soul? It is impossible to conquer and maintain it without the effective participation of the Holy Spirit. He alone is able to teach, guide, strengthen, sustain, and uphold the followers of His Son along the Way.
Every branch that does not bear fruit is cut off. Only the branch that bears fruit remains on the tree. The Holy Spirit is the Sap that gives life to the branch. Without Him, it withers away.
I have seen many people being healed of various sicknesses and diseases; freed from all sorts of evil spirits; conquering a stable financial life; in short, obtaining wonders by faith, only to then abandon it altogether. Unfortunately, most people forget that, if by faith we conquer, by doubt we lose. Faith needs maintenance, otherwise it evaporates.
Only those who are sealed with the Holy Spirit have remained firm. They are the true “called and chosen ones.”
God has been calling many, but only a few have been chosen. Is it Divine injustice? No, not at all! Just as the salvation of the soul is offered to everyone, so is the baptism with the Holy Spirit. The problem is that not everyone is willing to sacrifice their own life; in such case, what can God do?
Every material asset requires maintenance. The same is true in regards to the greatest spiritual asset: the salvation of the soul. The Holy Spirit is the Flame that prevents one’s faith from going out. He is the Warranty seal of eternal life.
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you shall be My witnesses …”
