What believers do wrong.

5. What believers do wrong in the Holy Spirit.

We will now study some of the common reasons why people fail in achieving the spiritual revival of the Holy Spirit. These are presented as sola scriptoria presents them:-

(1) The seeds fall into Satan's world

  • Mt 13:4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
  • Mt 13:18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
  • 19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.

    The main reason why people fail to receive the complete revival of the Holy Spirit, is because the Seeds of Jesus power, falls into Satan's world.

    In fact many people are so deceived, they are tricked into thinking Satan does not exist. Satan is the spiritual head of planet earth.

    Joh 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. 32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

    Satan is the prince of our fallen world, but Jesus is our prince of a redeemed world, if we choose a heavenly Saviour, not an earthly saviour:-

  • Ex 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

  • Ex 20:3 I AM your heavenly power, not you or Satan or other earthly powers.

    So are your Saviours? of heaven ? or of earth ?

  • Mt 13:37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
  • 38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
  • 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil;..

    We need to understand we have two rulers over our soul, Jesus the 'saraph like Being', and Satan the 'saraph like Being'. See studies of the symbol of the Saraph on a Pole.

  • Nu 21:8 And the LORD (Jesus-YHWH) said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent (saraph) and set it upon a pole:...

  • Joh 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
  • 32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

  • 1Ch 21:1 And Satan (satan) stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.
  • Ps 109:6 Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan (satan) stand at his right hand.
  • Zec 3:1 And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the 'messenger'(malak) of the LORD, and Satan (satan) standing at his right hand to resist him.
  • Mt 12:26 And if Satan (satanas) cast out Satan (satanas), he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?
  • 2Co 2:11 Lest Satan (satanas) should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
  • 1Ti 5:15 For some are already turned aside after Satan (satanas).

    The Scriptures has a Hebrew word for this ruler of earth: 'Satan'. The word is spelled exactly the same in the Greek, proving the Greek New Testament is a translation of the Hebrew. Many people seem to think that Satan does not exist. But beware, Satan is a ruler over earth, as Scripture declares. Jesus challenged this ruler and destroyed Satan's claim, by overpowering Satan on the Cross (pole). Zec 3:1 says the 'angel of the YHWH' stood before Joshua, has to be Jesus the 'saraph like Being', opposing Satan, also a 'saraph like Being', these two heavenly Beings are real, and existed long before sin fell upon the earth, because war was in heaven long ago. Satan challenged the very throne powers of heaven.

    Satan and Jesus are TWO Princes wanting you for their kingdom. Which king do you want ruling over you?

    Let's briefly look at common problems for the Seed(Jesus) falling into you (the soil).

    (a) poor sowing technique

    The first major problem Satan throws at us, is our own souls are vunerable to Satanic fowls which rob us of our energy for GOD. Some of these cultural habits were at first epi-genetic habits of our parents long ago. Some of these sinful habits are nurtured as a result of living in the world Satan markets to you. You cannot sow SEEDS if your not FREED. Alcohol, drugs, sugar cane sugar, and pop music are some of the fowls Satan uses to rob your energies in reaching out to GOD.

    Expect poor success if the SEED is not FREED.

  • Ps 66:18 If I regard iniquity (aven - propensities) in my heart, the Lord (Adonay - Jesus) will not hear me:

    Jesus does not hear our prayers if we allow our propensites to continue growing in us. We have to ask Jesus to control and subdue our flesh propensities, our sinful habits, our diseased minds of depravity.

    See studies Jesus is LORD (Adonay).

    See studies of propensities (aven).

  • Mt 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

    Sow Jesus seeds in faith, knowing their power will germinate, claiming their specific seed promise, thanking Jesus for that power in your life, which you have not experienced yet, but will. And thank Jesus for the Seeds of His power. Be fervent, faithful and earnest in your request.

    (b) poor ploughing technique

    The second major problem Satan throws at us, is our NEED for receiving the SEED. We are too proud to receive. Only the weak need the strong. Evolutionaary religion from Satan says, the Strong survive on their own. The weak die. Sure that is a natural law of Mother Nature, the consequences of sin in God's world, but it is not Satan's doing. Satan robs much of what God does and reverses it. Pride and humility are opposites. They are similes of the 'cela' rock.

  • Ob 1:3 The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock (cela),...

    The proud person has a heart like rock. Rock is a simile of pride and a typology of concrete man made rock. If we are high up on the status symbol, we do not NEED the SEED. The higher your education and experience, the less your NEED of the SEED. See studies of pride.

    Shallow soil, or rocky soil, or soil full of pride, opposes Jesus and a relationship with Him. Ploughing in the Scripture, breaks up your pride and makes you humble.

  • Jer 23:29 Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock (cela) in pieces?

    Only by studying Jesus' words, in Scripture, in Nature and in your mind listening to His Words via the conscience, do you become less proud and more humble. Soil is weathered rock, rock broke into tiny pieces. So if your full of pride, or hard headed, or shallow in your thinking, you need lots of Scripture study to allow Jesus to grind your stoney heart to soil.

    One needs to be careful with study....often knowledge leads one to more pride, which is a symbol also of 'cela' rock, that opposes Christ, the 'cela' rock, because you yourself become like 'anti-Christ' opposing the LORD of your life, by becoming Lord of your own power, because you have so much knowledge, education and words. Knowledge does not save you. The Hebrew word for scientific knowledge is 'mada'.

  • Da 1:4 ... and understanding science (mada),..
  • 1Ti 6:20 O Timothy, (avoid) vain babblings, and oppositions of science (gnosis) falsely so called:

    'Mada' does not save you, only 'yada' does. Don't you love the Hebrew puns? Yada is the Hebrew word for 'intimate knowledge', not 'science knowledge', and the difference in meaning is largely because 'yada' is a relationship word. To 'yada' Christ is to be intimate with Him.

  • Ps 100:3 Know(yada) ye that the LORD he is God:

    (c) technology issues

    The last major problem Satan throws at us is technology issues. In the Old Testament, human technology issues dealing with salvation are known as 'idols'. Some people think a better tractor, or a different plough will help in sowing His SEED. These are Satanic traps to bog down the sower with materialism or technology. Humanism does not work with GOD. Materialism does not solve all your problems.

    Only God's power in the SEED is all you NEED.

    Let God's technology be your CREED. Not human traditions and the love of praise by other humans. Or some new book promising newer technological techniques to help us come to GOD. Salvation is really very simple, God does not change, and His salvation has always been available since Adam and Eve times. When Adam sinned, they manufactured leaves into a symbol of salvation that covered their sinning. But God's technology for dealing with sinning is much better and more eternally lasting, only the gift of a part of GOD's power for eternity could satisfy the gift of living that was lost. Jesus demonstrated this as a symbol of a dying animal, and clothed Adam and Eve with a covering that only Jesus could supply, when He restricted an attribute of His power eternally for mankind, by becoming encapsulated in a human body, and dying on the Cross, giving His gift of power to those who will. So be careful with so called Science technology that promises a better sowing rate, an extended quality of life, a better harvest or a better way of growing salvation in your heart. Only GOD knows what to do, and needs no help from you in the technology area. While there is a human work for the Gardener in caring for the SEED in the soil, the actual mystery of GROWING must be left completely in God's hands.

    This is how SEEDS should be sown, with God's tender loving hands around them, every step of the way.

  • 1Jo 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.

    Too many of us are trapped in Satan's world, too busy to listen, too steeped in technology to allow a little SEED into our lives. That is why GOD brought His redeemed out from Egypt, into the desert. There is less distractions in the country, less of Satan's world and more of God's world. Before the worlds of Babylon fall, we should be living out of the technology trap of cities...

  • Re 14:8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city,
  • Re 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her (Babylon), my people...

    Get out of the cities...now...

    On the next web page, we will investigate another factor in what believers do wrong in Revival of the Holy Spirit.
