Isn’t the Infilling of The Holy Spirit Something Every Christian Gets When They Are Saved?
Among Christians, evangelical types and charismatic types, some debate about the Holy Spirit. Why? The Holy Spirit is controversial. The Bible says these signs shall follow those who believe (Mark 16:17)
Does that mean if a Christian doesn’t have miracles in their life (such as healing the sick, casting out demon, or even raising the dead) they are missing something? According to the Bible, the Word of God, YES!
When does a Christian Receive the Holy Spirit?
A Christian receives the Holy Spirit when they are saved (Romans 8:9 ). However, the Holy Spirit is a person, He is God and you must spend time with every day. The infilling of the Holy Spirit is when you believe in Jesus as your Lord, the baptism of the Holy Spirit is how Christians walk in power every day.
When you believe God, stuff happens. We know that even out Lord Jesus couldn’t work miracles when He was surrounded by unbelief (Mark 6:5 ).
Jesus was the light of the world until He left this world (John 8:12). He also said that as long as He is in the world, He is the light of the world (John 9:5). But we all know that Jesus ascended to the right hand of the Father after His resurrection (after an additional 40 days of being on the earth). Now believers are the light of the world( Matthew 5:14). How can we be light? We must get on our faces each day. We call it FaceTime. We must get in His presence every day. We must pray and fellowship with Him.
Christians are spiritual batteries. When we get into His presence each day we renew our spiritual strength (Isaiah 40:31). When we don’t fellowship with the Holy Spirit our spiritual batteries begin to lose their power. Most Christians are running on empty and wonder why they don’t have miracles in their lives. Jesus would spend time in solitary places every day. He would go off to be with the Father. Then after that, we see the great teaching and miracles He performed. The Lord Jesus is our example of how we must be renewing our strength by waiting on God.
