NOTHING BUT THE SPIRIT OF GOD
What did Jesus mean when he said, "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me, the works that I do, he will also do, and greater works he will do, for I am going to the Father" (John 14:12)? The Question is what could Jesus not do? Could it be that Jesus could not get his disciples “Born Again,” of the indwelling Holy Spirit of God? Isn’t it because He had not yet risen and ascended to his Father? So, by ascending to His Father, He could then send the Holy Spirit, which was the divine power to regenerate us, into “New Creations” in Christ? So by re-gene-ing us, by His precious blood, into new eternal beings, then causing “old things to pass away, and all things becoming new.” So even a new believer can do greater works than Jesus did by proclaiming the gospel of grace, thereby bringing new believers who are "born again" by the Holy Spirit into the Kingdom of God. Jesus Himself could not do that because He, Himself was the way the door and the entrance into the Kingdom, but that way was not opened until He was resurrected and ascended to His Father. We then could do the same works that He did, but even greater works that He could do.
So the whole purpose of sending the Holy Spirit at Pentecost is to recreate a new race of being with a new identity; new name; new parents; new awareness, and a new eternal life all by the indwelling Holy Spirit of God. Therefore, no outer person, not even the Son of God Himself while on earth, can save us. No outer belief system; no written creed or doctrine; no intellectual understanding; no affiliation with any denomination; no diligent bible reading; no endless prayer-life; no water baptism; nor church-going will suffice or take the place of the indwelling Holy Spirit that God promises to those who trust Jesus. God is a jealous God. He will not know anyone or thing that tries to take the place of His own indwelling Holy Spirit. Only His Holy Spirit will spring up in love and water the whole garden of our being with the glory of His Love-Fire. The gate is narrow, the way is steep and rugged, and is only opened to whosoever will. However, only a few will seek, will knock, and will desperately desire to enter in. There is another way, but it is broad, and many go that way, but it only leads to destruction and death (Matt. 7:13-14).
The Bible says for us to “know no man after the flesh, yea we have known Christ after the flesh, yet NOW henceforth know we him no more” (II Cor. 5:16). But why must we not know Christ after the flesh? The simple reason is that nothing outside of us can save us. Not even an outer Savior, or an outer belief system. Neither can outer doctrines, church buildings, group associations, nor influences save us. Jesus had to go away so that He could send the last and only source of our redemption and perfection; that is, The Holy Spirit Himself. Only the indwelling, Third Person of the Trinity, who is God living in our flesh-vessel, can complete the work of redemption and bring us full circle back to Eden and our lost glory which was stolen from our first father, Adam.
Cain, the first born of Adam and Eve, didn’t please God with his effort-sacrifice in the beginning and human effort will not please God at the end. “Without faith, you cannot please God” (Heb. 11:6). Our best efforts are unbelief and sin. This mentality is none other than the satanic “mind of the flesh.” It is not what the Apostles penned in the divinely inspired scriptures, nor can it justify us, nor sanctify us, nor cause us to know the indwelling Spirit of God.
It is the “carnal mind” which is “enmity against God”, and therefore “cannot please God” (Rom. 8:6-8). Only by the Divine Mind of the Holy Spirit of God, who requires the Blood and Body of Jesus as a Living human sacrifice, can please God. God cannot desire nor be pleased with sacrifices offered from His creature’s effort. For many, like Satan, who worshipped his created form instead of the Creator’s Glory (Rom. 1:25), are actually becoming spiritual anti-christs. Why? Because, by drawing from a false source, they are trying to take the place of the only source of divine life in man, that is, the Holy Spirit.
“ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH SO BE IT!”
The glory of the Spirit’s Love-Fire is that it puts to death any intruder who tries to illegitimately lay with you, causing you to commit spiritual adultery (James 4:4). God’s Love-Fire keeps you from falling into the hands of the Harlot who continually tries to seduce your heart and mind to fornicate with other counterfeit loves and lovers. El Shadah is jealously able to keep you from falling into the arms of false lovers, and powerfully “present you faultless before the presence of His Glory with exceeding joy” (Jude 1:24). Trust the Almighty keeping power of The Holy Spirit! AMEN
