"His messengers are flames of fire" - so how can we continue to be His messengers and servants if we are not aflame with His Spirit, and burning with passion for all that is of His Kingdom.
Jesus promised that because He left this earth the Father would send His Spirit. So, to walk in the ways of God we must be walking in and with the Spirit of God.
How can we live in Pentecost?
How do we come to find this place as natural as breathing so that we truly 'live and move and have our being' in You Lord?
Are we in deeper than we know, or are we still just splashing in the shallows?
We can never be completely filled with the Holy Spirit as long as there is any selfish craving for our own will, for it is His will that is to be done. As long as we remain adept at maintaining and ministering to our flesh then how can we say that we walk and live by His Spirit?
Smith Wigglesworth gave a warning cry many years ago. From a man who moved in the power of God's Spirit for the very great good of others, we should perhaps take careful note of this comment.
"Unless Pentecost wakes up to shake herself free from all worldly things and comes into a place of the divine-likeness with God, we will hear the voice of God saying "Come out", and He will have something far better than this."
It is not enough to call ourselves pentecostal - it becomes merely a name if we do not live it moment by moment and day by day.
We need to remember that in His greatness and holiness God doesnt settle for near enough or second best, they are not part of His make-up, for He is perfect in every way. He doesnt ask us to be perfect in our own strength, but He does say (Rom 8:14) "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God."
If all creation eagerly awaits the appearing of the Sons of God, then it would seem good to ask the Lord to bring us to this place!
