Listen, NOW, to the Voice of the Spirit
Until the Lord Jesus finished His Work of redemption, the Holy Spirit could not come upon the world.
The mission of continuing the Work of His Son would only happen after the ascension of Jesus.
Then, yes! Those who listened and obeyed the Word of Jesus would be born again and receive the seal of the Holy Spirit.
When God the Son sat on the right hand of God the Father, seven days after His ascension, He fulfilled His Promise and sent His Spirit upon the disciples.
Pentecost was the beginning.
The Holy Spirit did not descend upon the thousands who followed Jesus in those days, just like this also does not happen with the billions of “Christians” nowadays.
Of the thousands, only 120 remained firm while waiting for the Promise: Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high. Luke 24.49
The faith of the 120 who waited for the Promise was honored.
The same faith of those who are participating of the 40 Day Fast of Jesus will also be honored.
Especially because, don’t you think that the Lord sees the sacrifice of those who believe in this Fast?
The Lord is more interested in living in us than we are of needing Him!
God is Spirit. And as such, He longs to dwell in the body of His children, so that, through them, He can reveal Himself in a glorious manner to those who are suffering in this world.
Is this not the fast that I have chosen: To loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out; when you see the naked, that you cover him, and not hide yourself from your own flesh?
Then your light shall break forth like the morning, your healing shall spring forth speedily, and your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard. Isaiah 58.6-8
Right now, as you read this, look for a private and quiet place where you can be alone with Jesus. Challenge Him to fulfill His promise! And the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you and you will be a new person.
You should do this NOW!
