The Holly Spirit And His Holly World

1263 words - 5 pages

The natural world which mankind inhabits is visible to physical eyes. Tangible objects fill the scenes of this earthly realm. The world and its components are familiar and open to humanity and as a result most are comfortable with their natural environment and with what they can physically see. Yet, man is a two-fold being in that he is a spiritual being as well as an earthly one. Man possesses a soul, and that soul will live eternally. Of course, the soul of man pertains to the spiritual side of mankind where the spirit world play an integral role in the decisions he makes, the influences he is subjected to, and where the soul of man will ultimately spend eternity. The invisible spirit world is full of spirits which aid every soul in choosing their final eternal destination. It is this world that most are neither familiar nor comfortable with considering or giving much heed. However, if a soul is to successfully reach heaven then it is of vital importance to consider the spiritual side of man and what it entails.
A spirit is an immaterial, intelligent being. A spirit can also be described as the disposition of the mind or intellect. People are the result of the spirit to which they lend themselves. Jesus expressed to the disciples in one instance that they were not aware of the spirit influencing them. There are many different spirits that influence people. The bible names the spirit of wisdom and understanding. There are spirits of fear, jealousy, fornication, and countless others. In order for a man to enter Heaven he must be born of a particular spirit, the Holy Spirit (John 3:5). The Spirit of God will bring the right influences into the heart of the truly converted soul. David asked God to renew in him a right spirit (Psalm 51:10). The Holy Spirit will bear the fruit of spirit which is love, joy, peace… (Galatians 5:22). Men and women must realize they manifest the fruit of their spirit.
The Holy Spirit, however, does not have the primary spot in most hearts. “The prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience,” is the ruler of most individual hearts. Spirits come from two distinct sources. Every spirit that confesses Jesus Christ is of God, and every that does otherwise is not of God. The spirit that is contrary to Christ is antichrist, which is in the world today (I John 4:1-3).
The world today is ruled by the devil who is the one that works in the children of disobedience, disobedience to God and his word. All disobedience is sin, and sin is the root of man’s problem. The evil in the world today is not the result of mental illnesses, or deep psychological problems. Sin is the problem of man. Men have yielded to spirits which have driven them to commit sin, sins such as adultery, fornication, murder, lying, stealing, cheating and many others condemned by righteous principles. The fifth chapter of Galatians specifically names out the works of the flesh and shows clearly that such works are...
