The Gifts of the Spirit in the Last Days
For Those Who Want To Know About the Need For the Gifts of The Spirit in the Last Days.
Discover the beautiful truth that God loves you and has a plan to save you! God has a plan to save you by giving you the Holy Spirit and the Gifts of the Spirit, so that He can guide you through the perils of the Last Days, and help you on your way to Heaven. He wants to help keep you from falling into error, if you will just yield your heart completely to Him, believe, and let Him give you the full outpouring of the Holy Spirit! Yes, you need this for yourself! Do you want it?
The purpose of this book is to explain the need for the Gifts of the Spirit in the Last Days, which we are now living in, and why we must have them. It is not enough to “know the truth”, or to make an assent to the truth, we must have the Spirit of Truth in our heart in order to not be deceived, and to be ready and willing to serve God effectively, with a vibrant Christian life in these last days, with love and great joy. In order to live a successful Christian life which God approves of, we must have His Holy Spirit in our heart at all times, and the gifts He longs to give us! It is not enough that someone we know has the Holy Spirit, or someone who we believe in in the past had the Holy Spirit, because we all need the Holy Ghost in our heart for ourselves! Having the Holy Spirit cannot be done by proxy. No one can live a Christian life for another, and the only way we can live a good Christian life, is if God’s Holy Spirit is dwelling fully in our heart, the Spirit of Truth, the Spirit of Righteousness, the Spirit of Love, Faith, Hope and Joy, which the world cannot receive, because it doesn’t know Him! John 14:17. It is our goal, dear reader, that you would want to possess this Spirit of Love, Faith, Hope, Joy, Truth and Righteousness for yourself, and would not stop confessing your sins, praying, and allowing God to change you, until you receive the Holy Spirit in full! Oh what joy! This is what all Christians were meant to have! It is what God has promised to all who love Him and want to obey Him! If you will just get to know God, you will fall in love with Him, and all of these promised blessings can be yours!
The Bible clearly states that we all must be born again in order to enter the kingdom of Heaven (John 3:3, 5), and God has promised to give the Fruits of the Holy Spirit, and the Gifts of the Spirit, to those who ask, believe and truly love Him. And Jesus promised us that the Holy Spirit would lead us into all truth (John 16:13), instead of having to have someone else tell us the truth, or what the Bible means. When you read the Bible, under the divine illumination of the Holy Spirit, it will be very clear to you, and will be understood, because those who love God and want to obey Him, will be given the Spirit of Truth, the Holy Spirit, whom the world cannot receive, because they do not know Him (John 14:17), to guide them and teach them all truth. All who really “know God” are truly born again, and will be given the Spirit of Truth, and will possess the Fruits of the Spirit, and will have been given at least one Gift of the Spirit.
We cannot serve God, or please Him without His divine aid.
We need to be able to read the Bible for ourselves and understand it, that way we can know if others are speaking or living the truth or not. If we do not have the Holy Spirit, we will place the wrong emphasis on some things, and will probably ignore the most important things, like love, kindness, mercy, and complete obedience! God can never accept any of our righteousness, because it is not. There can be no righteousness without love, for love is righteousness. There can be no love without righteousness either.
We all are in such a desperate need for God to save us from sin and guilt. What can be done to wake people up to their greatest need of having God’s Holy Spirit dwelling in their heart? This is the purpose of this book, to wake up people to their need of having God in their life, our need to be filled with His Holy Spirit.
The purpose of this book is to also show you that we should not rule out the more apparent “supernatural” gifts of the Holy Spirit being given, like *healing and prophecy, because God can and will give these gifts to people until the end of time, at His discretion, the Bible is clear on this, as we shall see in this book! No human being is in the position to declare what God can or cannot do. It is also clear that all of the Gifts of the Spirit are supernatural! Not one of them does any human being possess by themselves! It is not a good thing to doubt that God can do what the Bible declares He can do. There were some people in the Bible days too, who rejected the messages that God tried to send them through His prophets, and rejected His messengers as being from God, and the leaders of Jerusalem rejected Jesus as being the Son of God, and rejected His disciples as having power and authority from God too. They accused Jesus of working His miracles by the power of Beelzebul, the ruler of the demons! Mark 3:22; Matthew 9:34. People in our day are as ready to doubt in the power of God, as they were in the Bible days, but we hope this book can wake up as many people as possible to the love and power of God to save, and work miracles in our day too, when it is His will to do so. “Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.” Hebrews 3:12 KJV. “And in this place again, if they shall enter into my rest. Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein [to God’s rest], and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:” Hebrews 4:5-6 KJV. Therefore let us not doubt that God can still give all of the Gifts of the Spirit in our day too, seeing that there is no place in the Bible that says that it cannot be continued to be given until the end of time, as we shall see in this book. Let us therefore not have a heart of unbelief in the power of God to do what He says that He can do.
* We will not deal specifically with Bible proofs on whether God can still give the Gift of Healing in our day in this book, although we will cover it briefly in the texts regarding the Fruits of the Spirit.
It is our prayer, dear reader, that you would have a new life from God, and that you would have great joy in serving your God, whom you love, and that you would greatly desire to have His Spirit in your heart at all times and always obey God, not depending on someone else to have the life with God that you must have for yourself. It is also our prayer, that you would understand the Bible for yourself, and that you would possess both the Fruits of the Spirit, and have the Gifts of the Spirit that God wants you to have. And that you would have the most wonderful experience of your life, as you serve God, and have the great joy that we were all meant to have, and that you would bear much fruit for Him. Amen!
