I was going to write a post about this… but I made a video instead!
Text from the description:
The real baptism of the Holy Spirit comes when Jesus draws a person to His Heart and shows them the truth about their own heart of sin. He brings them to a place of humility in their heart and shows them their own heart in light of Him. When this happens, it causes a person to cry out to Him for forgiveness. There is no other way to get it… nobody in the universe has ever gotten the real baptism of the Holy Spirit any other way… seek Jesus for it until you do. it’s not head knowledge of knowing your a sinner, its heart knowledge. It only comes from Jesus showing a person their own heart. That is the godly sorrow that leads to true repentance. True repentance is the work of God IN His people. God does it IN His people.
It’s not something that just happens out of nowhere. It only comes when Jesus removes the veil and shows you the truth about the VERY CORE OF YOUR HEART. That’s the ONLY thing that produces the humility which brings true repentance. That’s how Jesus draws a heart to Him.
It doesnt come from singing worship music, repeating “hallelujah” or any other magic word. It doesnt come from anyone laying their hands on you and praying… those things will bring on spiritual experiences originating from the flesh.
it doesn’t come with any fear or condemnation. it only comes with truth. Truth about the sin of your heart, the Righteousness of God and the judgment of the cross.
It comes with understanding of Gods wrath being poured out on the cross. THAT IS THE LOVE OF GOD.
It is a different experience than initially coming to Jesus. Jesus draws a person when they come to Him and they have to seek the truth from Him… continually… until Jesus brings their heart to a place that they can receive the truth about themselves…
Truth is different than emotion. Emotion comes from the flesh and truth comes from God. Jesus allows His people to experience the false and teaches us the difference… if we are seeking truth.
Outward manifestations, sensations in your body, and feelings of love and forgiveness are not the same as truth. Those things come from the flesh and they are sensual… Gods Spirit is different.
You must want to know the truth more than you want any spiritual experience.
Dont get discouraged… God is Faithful. Seek Jesus for the truth.
