HOLY SPIRIT TRANSFORMATION

“Live by following the Holy Spirit.”                               Galatians 5:16

“The true children of God are those who let God’s Holy Spirit lead them.”                                                                                    Romans 8:14

HOLY SPIRIT TRANSFORMATION

To simplify this, the Holy Spirit is the Presence of God in our lives, carrying on the work of Jesus. The Holy Spirit grants us all the fruits of the Spirit Galatians 5:22-23.(“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control”). If the disciple teaches, it is the Holy Spirit that teaches the disciple. Luke 12:12 (“For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.”)

If the listener is convicted, it is because the Holy Spirit has penetrated. John 16:10 (“Concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see Me no longer”) If the listener is converted, it by the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 8:11 (“He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.”)

If the new believer matures, it is because the Holy Spirit makes him or her more competent. “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own.”                                            1 Corinthians 6:19

 “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. You know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.”                                                                                                                                                          John 14:16-17

How have you seen the Holy Spirit at work in your own life?

HOW DO YOU RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT?

HOLY SPIRIT TRANSFORMATION

“As I (Peter)began to speak, the Holy Spirit came on them as he had come on us at the beginning. Then I remembered what the Lord had said: ‘John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.  Acts 11:15,16  There are four different ways, which can be used by the minister of baptism:

  1. Laying on of hands: “they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied. ” Acts19: 2-6
  2. Praying : “When they arrived, they prayed for the new believers there that they might receive the Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit had not yet come on any of them; they had simply been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. ”                            Acts 8:15,16
  3. Speaking: “While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message.”                   Acts 10:44-45
  4. Breathing: Jesus commanded that the disciples receive the Holy Spirit, “And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”                                            John 20:22

The most important part of the rite is that the person being baptized in the Holy Spirit be in acceptance:  ” I receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus Christ.”

YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL

THE THREE GUARDIAN ANGELS

Michael O’Brian is a popular Christian novelist, who has published many books. In his biography, On the Edge of Infinity”, page 63, he described what happened to him when he was about to make a drastic mistake by crossing on river ice that was very dangerous. He had been successful in crossing the first time, but on his return, the conditions of the ice changed drastically and he was too tired to notice the difference.

GUARDIAN ANGEL

He had just reached the edge of the river, when a car came along the road and stopped beside him. Inside the car were three young men, in their twenties, who asked “Where are you going?” Come with us and we will drive you to the bridge.”

To Michael the car seemed to come from nowhere and the three men looked unusual.  They were all unusually handsome and their faces were flawless. Their mannerisms were full of politeness and open-hearted goodness. One of them addressed Michael by name, which was by itself surprising. It appeared that God had arranged to come to his rescue at exactly the right time.

GUARDIAN ANGELAre they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister FOR them who shall be heirs of salvation?”                                                  Hebrews 1:14

The emphasis is on the word, “FOR”: your guardian angel will give you guidance and direction concerning the things in your life.

Remember the angel that came and awakened Peter and led him out of jail. They are waiting for you to give them orders just as a waiter cannot do anything for you until you give him the order.

Your guardian angel has many other angels working for your order: “Bring on all the ministering angels for Your glory, God.  I pray to cause all the needed finances be available for Your project, Lord.”

CAN RELATIVES IN HEAVEN HEAR OUR PRAYERS?

CAN SAINTS IN HEAVEN HEAR OUR PRAYERS?

 “In heaven the elders and angels offer up the prayers of the saints [on earth] as incense before the throne of God”                                                                                                                                                      Revelation 5:8; 8:3-4

 This implies that the angels and elders (holy Christians now in heaven) hear the prayers of every Christian on earth, and join their prayer now with ours: they can hear our prayers.

We can indeed ask the angels and saints for their prayers. They can hear us and respond to us by praying for us. This is not idolatry. Idolatry would only occur if one believed that a saint or angel would give you something that our Lord would not.      

God provides everything we need for us to be transformed into the image of Christ in this life.

If we die in the state of grace but before we have been fully conformed to the image of Christ, purgatory will complete that process for us.  The process of purgatory has been compared to the refiners touch. The souls of our loved ones must be saved by prayer from torments .

RELATIVES HEAVEN PRAYERS

LOST IN PURGATORY: the Immortal Soul

“Then in anger his master handed him over to the torturers until he should pay back the whole debt. So will my heavenly Father do to you, unless each of you forgives his brother from his heart.”                                                                                                              Matthew 18: 34,35

Doesn’t that sound like a form of purgatory to you: until he should pay back the whole debt.”?

Message from a soul in Purgatory to a mystic:                                                         “I know when you pray for me, and it is the same with all of the other souls here in Purgatory. Very few of us here get any prayers; the majority of us are totally abandoned, with no thought or prayers offered for us from those on earth Continue to pray; I will repay you later on. When I am released you will see that I will do far more for you than you have ever done for me.”

YOUR LOVED ONES

As we get older, the majority of those we love best are dead. What sort of intercourse with God could we have, if what we love best were not important to Him?                                                            C.S. Lewis

So where does that leave your loved one? You probably never even considered the possibility of purgatory: no thought, no prayers, no hope. You may even have been taught that there is no purgatory, because it has not been mentioned specifically by name in the Bible.

YOUR LOVED ONES ARE TOTALLY HELPLESS.

TEN MILLION ANGELS

TEN MILLION ANGELS
TEN MILLION ANGELS

A  Testimony of Healing and Deliverance

Our Christian mission involved five missionaries who traveled on a 1550 km trip by car as far as Chisasabi located on the east coast of James Bay on the Grand Riviere. As a Catholic, this was the first time that I witnessed deliverance, healing and God’s total presence.

ten million angels Chisasibi

We were told from Cynthia Elias, another missionary, who has the gift of prophecy, that we would be given the protection of ten million ministering angels.

Now you say, that is much too surreal to grasp. Yet, as the trip unfolded and all of our mission goals had been reached, I personally wondered whether we were still under angelic protection.

TEN MILLION ANGELS

Does not God protect His beloved with His angels?

LISTEN TO YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL

 LISTEN TO YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL?

We have been trivializing angels for some time — turning them into good luck charms rather than acknowledging them as the powerful and important forces they are, when we listen. In the meantime, we are oblivious to the advantages to listen to your guardian angel.

Angel in my hair

Angels in My Hair: The True Story of a Modern-Day Irish Mystic   by Lorna Byrne is a Sunday Times Number One best seller that is translated in twenty-six languages: it tells readers that she is surrounded by angels. She explains in what form they appear to her and the ways in which they have helped her and others during difficult times.  This book will definitely change your view of angels and religion: life will be put in a different perspective.

Ms. Byrne writes, “We have become a very materialistic society, and so frequently we look at death and ask, ‘Is this it? I rot away and there is nothing more?’ I assure you there is more — much more. People are given proofs (of angels)while they are alive, but sometimes they have to look or listen very hard to recognize them.”

WHAT’S NEW ABOUT ANGELS?

You probably wondered if angels exist. You probably like to think that you have a guardian angel. You may have caught whispers of the angels at times in your life, and this book will assure you that the whispers are real. We will learn that our guardian angels as well as thousands of other angels are willing and waiting to offer us help if only we ask.  You don’t have to have a particular religious belief to be inspired to contact your own guardian angel.  Eventually, you may catch yourself saying later on in life, “why did it take so long for me to discover God and His angels.”

The angels are spiritual beings who have an intellect that is far superior to ours. People hear the angels talking to them but they frequently think it’s a silly thought and disregard what they are being told what to do.

Lorna Byrne writes about the angels talking to her and appearing to her; she tells us that there are countless angels among us, whether they choose to be visible or not and she tells us how to connect with angels: we all intuitively know how. Just talk to them: ask angels for their protection.

Lorna Byrne has the ability to see heavenly apparitions: angels that foretell the future and give direction. She claims she can see every individual’s guardian angel as “spirals of light”, sometimes hovering three paces behind the one they are protecting. In Lorna’s case, her angel identified a small one line advertisement for a cottage that she and her husband purchased.

Some of messages Lorna shares:
