One of the roles of Holy Spirit is to reveal the Son of God and help us know Jesus. Holy Spirit is also a wealth of wisdom, love, joy, peace, power and helps to develop our character.
We, if we are believers in Jesus as Lord, are invited to live by the Spirit and not after the flesh.
The flesh represents the carnal nature of mankind. The flesh tends to be selfish and self focused. The mind of the flesh wars against God. The character of the flesh, carnal nature, is quite immature and self centered.
One of the ongoing classes in Holy Spirit University is character development. Though God loves us as we are, the intention is not to leave us the way He found us.
The invitation to salvation is more than keeping us from hell, it is an invitation for heaven to live in us and transform…

If you are a born again believer, then you are the temple God resides in. He is omnipresent. Meaning God can be in more than one place at the same time. His Spirit resides in those who are born again. He takes up residence in us.
We are body, soul, spirit:
We see a body. When we look at people we see flesh. Yet we are more than flesh. We are body, spirit, soul (mind, will, and emotions). They are all connected. The Spirit empowers the body. The spirit, our human spirit, is purified at conversion. We are told to be led by the Holy Spirit.
The body (flesh) is not perfected. The soul is being renewed, transformed, and made more like Christ. Scripture to support this.
I urge you…

If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan opposes himself and is divided, he cannot stand; his end has come. In fact, no one can enter a strong man’s house without first tying him up. Then he can plunder the strong man’s house,~Jesus (Mark 3:24-27).
Hello sweet friends. I hope you’ve been enjoying this series on the spiritual house. I started it because I’ve seen the good fruit of inner healing. I’ve also peer counseled several over the years who had issues of the soul, sins they couldn’t seem to break free from, and though their spirit was free and in Christ, their soul was sick and afflicted.
The Bible says, “Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers

Psalm 85 King James Version (KJV)
1 Lord, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.
2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.
3 Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.
4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.
5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?
6 Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?
7 Shew us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation.
8 I will hear what God the Lord will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.
9 Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.
10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11 Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12 Yea, the Lord shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.
13 Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.
So..I was praying this morning and God gave me an awesome revelation!
I was praying against the Church comparing ourselves one to another. He brought to mind these verses:
Matthew 9:37-38 King James Version (KJV)
37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;
38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
This really hit home for me because I have been called as an Intercessor and sometimes I would rather be out in the world doing something else when God has other plans for me in the prayer closet. Who doesn’t want their own platform on the world scene preaching for Jesus? But look…
This is a perfect example of the importance of the calling of an intercessor. We may not be on the front line in the flesh, but in the spirit we are taking down mountains and destroying the enemy’s camp. We are helping out The Brothers and Sisters who are going forth to bring messages in the world with our prayers. We are praying for their minds, clarity, and further understanding. We are praying for their boldness and their protection. We are praying for a Mighty move of The Holy Ghost and for the hearts of people to be tilled and ready to receive the Gospel seed and whatever it is that they need today from The Lord. Hallelujah!
Every calling in The Lord is Special! Every calling is Beautiful! I have shared just one example today. I pray this encourages you! I encourage you to start your day out with The Lord. Seek Him and see what He has for you today. Here am I send me.
God bless today and always! 🙂
