The Real Holy Spirit - The Production & The Process

The Real Holy Spirit - The Production & The Process

Romans 8:1-4 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but (live) according to the Spirit.

Galatians 5:22 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!

“Love is a fruit of the Spirit and only grows from a cultivated relationship with the Holy Spirit.” Bishop Larry Mask

Before You Can Have Production You Have to Have Process

I Kings 19:19 So Elijah went and found Elisha plowing a field. There were twelve teams of oxen in the field, and Elisha was plowing with the twelfth team. Elijah went over to him and threw his cloak across his shoulders and then walked away.

“Inside upside down Kingdom, where you loose to gain, where you die to live.” Misty Edwards

Matthew 22:37-40 “‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’f 40 The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”

Before You Can Have Production You Have to Have Process

When You’re In Process, You Take More Pleasure in the Pain Because the Pain is What Leads You to Progress

Philippians 1:6 And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.

BIG IDEA: We are Sinful by Nature

But Christ IN us is by the Law of the SPIRIT is MORE Powerful than our Nature

Romans 7:18-25 And I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. I want to do what is right, but I can’t. 

19 I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway. 

20 But if I do what I don’t want to do, I am not really the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it.

21 I have discovered this principle of life—that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong. 

22 I love God’s law with all my heart. 

23 But there is another power within me that is at war with my mind. This power makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. 

24 Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death? 

25 Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord. So you see how it is: In my mind I really want to obey God’s law, but because of my sinful nature I am a slave to sin.
