You Are A Habitation... Not A Visitation!

Why are we asking the Holy Spirit to come? Inviting His presence is assuming He left us.  Are we asking for a greater presence? I don't get it.  What we should be doing is thanking the Holy Spirit for sealing us and indwelling us. Ephesians 1:13-14 "In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory." 

We are not a visitation, we are a habitation of His presence and glory. So much worship is misguided and even teaching about the Holy Spirit.  You say, "Jerry, why is this so important to you?" Because this misguided truth robs us of the power of our identification in Christ.  How can we fully embrace, "Christ in me, my hope of glory" if we believe we have to invite Him another time to visit us? Why is this misguided truth taught?  Because we are depending on our emotions.  We want to feel His presence. What we need to do is release His presence that is already inside of us! Our emotions can be deceived. Our flesh is so dependent on what we feel.  But God's truth is not based on our emotions.  

Will we feel a release and surge of joy and praise?  Absolutely!  When we embrace the truth of His indwelling us fully and making our "spirit man" totally complete and holy in Christ already, we will often express it with emotional release. But that comes through our declarations and manifestations of His indwelling presence already inside of you. Walking in the Spirit results in "speaking to yourself in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs" continually. Our "spirit man" will literally transform our mind and body in the perpetual joy. Celebrate His presence already inside of you.  He is fully alive in you!  You have been raised with Him in His resurrection.  How great it that!  "If the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead, dwell in you, He will quicken your mortal body, by the same Spirit."  If you really want to feel alive in Christ, began to declare with your mouth this truth and see what happens!  Remember, Christ is already inside of you with all his power and glory.  "Christ in me.. my hope of glory".  Watch this short video if you will please.
