How To Be Led By The Holy Spirit

How to Be Led by the Holy Spirit

Since we have opened up this site, we have received many questions from people all across the world. If I had to rank one question that might be one of the most frequently asked questions, it might be the actual title of this article – exactly how am I to be led by the Holy Spirit – and exactly how does the Holy Spirit communicate to all of us in this life?

As we all know, the Bible very clearly says that the sons of God are led by the Holy Spirit in this life. Once again, here is this most important verse:

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” (Romans 8:14)

Now that we know that the Holy Spirit will lead us in this life because the Bible now tells us so, exactly how does He do this? This is where you have to take some other verses from Scripture on this topic and put them all together like you would pieces to a jigsaw puzzle. Once you put these additional Scripture verses all together on this topic, then you will see very clearly the different ways that the Holy Spirit will use to help guide us and communicate to us in this life.

For the record, based upon the revelation that are in these additional verses, we believe there are 8 basic ways that the Holy Spirit will use to not only guide us in this life, but to also directly communicate to all of us from time to time. In other words, you can learn how to hear direct from the Holy Spirit Himself.

If the Bible calls the Holy Spirit our Guide and Teacher in this life, then this means He will attempt to communicate to all of us from time to time. Otherwise we will never be able to pick up from Him exactly what He is trying to teach us or tell us to do.

But before I get into these 8 basic ways that the Holy Spirit will use to communicate to us and lead us in this life, I want to make one more comment on this subject matter. If there are two subject matters that are rarely discussed in many churches today, it has to be in the area of spiritual warfare like we discussed so many times in our articles in that section, and in the area on how to hear from God and how to be led by the Holy Spirit.

ADVERTISEMENTS

My best guess on why most pastors do not attempt to educate their flocks on how the Holy Spirit will lead us and communicate to us in this life is either because they themselves do not have a full understanding on this subject matter, or they are too afraid to open up this subject matter to their flocks for fear that it will open up a door to the spiritual realm, and from there, they could possibly make contact with demonic spirits who will try to masquerade as the Holy Spirit or God Himself.

In other words, they look at this subject matter as being a kind of pandora’s box. They are afraid if they open up their flocks to supernatural communication from the Holy Spirit, then they may also open them up to communication to demonic spirits as well.

Granted, this is a possibility, but just because demons can attempt to counterfeit what God does, does not mean you have to throw out all of the supernatural ways that God will use to communicate to His people.

For example – per the 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit, demons can counterfeit the gift of tongues. But just because demons can counterfeit the gift of tongues does not mean that the gift of tongues from the Lord is still not real and that many of His people can still receive it in this day and age. We just have to be careful and learn how to discern when something is coming in from God and when something is coming in from demons.

Demons can also give false visions, false dreams, false healings, false prophecies, etc. But again, just because demons can do this does not mean that we should totally shut down God in those areas of our life, and refuse to accept the supernatural ways that He still likes to use to communicate to all of us.

Again, if there is one major area that many Christians are weak on because they have never been taught much about it, it has to be in the area of spiritual warfare, and in the area on how to be led by the Holy Spirit and how to hear directly from God themselves.

If you really study the Bible from cover to cover, God was supernaturally communicating to His people on a fairly regular basis. And if God is still the same today as He was yesterday, then this tells us that He still wants to communicate to all of us in those same supernatural ways.

We just have to learn what those different supernatural ways are – and then learn through a process of trial and error when it really is the Lord communicating to us, when it is demons, or when it is just our own natural imaginations and feelings talking to us.

I will break down these 8 specific ways God will use to communicate to all of us under the following 8 captions so you can keep all of these different ways properly sorted out. But before I do, I want to give you some very key verses from Scripture on the Holy Spirit Himself so this part of the walk will not scare you or intimidate you.

Key Scripture Verses on the Holy Spirit

The following verses I will now give you are major key verses on the Holy Spirit Himself, and they will all set the stage for you to be able to receive direct supernatural communication from Him from time to time.

Again, I know some pastors are afraid to open up this supernatural realm to their flocks, but these verses all are all straight forward and they are meaning exactly what they are saying.

As a result, I believe these verses should be taught by the churches so their people will at least know what the Bible has to say about this subject matter, and from there, each person can then make up their own mind as to whether or not they want to tread into these kinds of deeper waters with the Lord.

If God did not want this kind of information and knowledge in our lives, then He would have never put these kinds of verses in the Bible. But since He did, this tells me that He wants His people to have access to this revelation and from there, they can then decide if they want to try and develop this part of their walk with the Lord.

Now onto some very key Scripture verses on the Holy Spirit that will set this kind of stage up for you.

1. You Can Develop a Personal Relationship With the Holy Spirit

The very first thing you will need to know if you want to learn how to be led by the Holy Spirit is that you can develop a direct personal relationship with Him just like you already have with God and Jesus.

If the Holy Spirit is going to start to supernaturally communicate to you in a wide variety of ways, then the first thing you are going to want to do is to make direct personal contact with Him, since you are now going to be working very closely with Him if you want to develop this part of your walk with the Lord.

Here are two very key verses from the apostle Paul telling us that we are allowed to have direct communication and direct fellowship with the Holy Spirit Himself:

  • “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” (2 Corinthians 13:14)
  • “Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit …” (Phillippians 2:1)

The two key words in these two verses are the words “communion” and “fellowship.” And both of these two key words are being tied in direct to the Holy Spirit Himself. In other words, the apostle Paul is telling us that we can have direct communion and direct fellowship with the Holy Spirit Himself.

Put those two key words together and they spell one thing – personal relationship. Not only can we develop a close personal relationship with both God the Father and Jesus Christ, but these two additional verses are telling us that we can also develop a close personal relationship direct with the Holy Spirit Himself.

These two verses will now set the stage for the next two verses.

2. The Holy Spirit is Our Personal Guide and Teacher in This Life

Before you can believe that the Holy Spirit can guide you, lead you, and teach you in this life, you will need the specific Scripture verses showing us that He does have this kind of personal ministry with all of us. And these next set of verses are going to give you that specific revelation. Here they are:

  • “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” (John 14:26)
  • “However, when He, the Spirit of truth has come, He will guide you into all truth …” (John 16:13)

When the Bible tells us that the Holy Spirit will “teach us all things” and “guide us into all truth,” this tells us that the Holy Spirit has the ministry with each one of us as being our personal Guide and Teacher in this life.

And if He is going to be our personal Guide and Teacher in this life, then this means He will start to communicate to us so He can teach us what He wants to teach us. And our part will then be to learn how He will communicate to us so we can pick up that communication when He does start to release it to us.

Put these two verses together with the first two verses above about having direct fellowship and direct communion with the Holy Spirit, and you can tell that God is letting all of us know loud and clear that we can enter into this supernatural realm with the Holy Spirit.

If God is telling us that the Holy Spirit will be guiding us and teaching us in this life, then we can comfortably enter into that realm with Him so He can then begin to do that kind of deeper work with each one of us.

3. Do Not Resist, Rebel, Grieve, or Quench the Holy Spirit

These last set of verses I will now give you will put the icing on this entire cake. Not only does God want us to establish a direct personal relationship with the Holy Spirit, along with allowing us to be led and taught by Him in this life, but now God is going to take it one more step further.

These next set of verses are now going to tell us that we are not to resist, quench, rebel, or grieve the Holy Spirit. In other words, once the Holy Spirit starts to become very active in your life, and He then starts the process of guiding you and teaching you in this life, from there, God will want you to work very closely with Him. God will not want you to resist Him, quench Him, grieve Him, or rebel against Him.

Here are four key verses giving us these four specific words:

  • “But they rebelled and grieved His Holy Spirit; so He turned Himself against them as an enemy, and He fought against them.” (Isaiah 63:10)
  • Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.” (1 Thessalonians 5:19-22)
  • “You stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears! You always resist the Holy Spirit; as your fathers did, so do you.” (Acts 7:51)
  • “And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.” (Ephesians 4:30)

When you really study the intense wording of these verses, you can tell that God the Father is telling all of us loud and clear that once the Holy Spirit starts to move in on you and your life, that He will want us to work in cooperation with Him. God does not want us resisting Him, quenching Him, grieving Him, or trying to rebel against Him. If you rebel and resist the Holy Spirit, then you are rebelling and resisting God Almighty Himself and His Son Jesus Christ. And that is not a place you want to be in with the Lord.

The other thing to pick up on these verses is that they are more proof that the Holy Spirit does have a specific ministry with all of us and that He can become very active in our daily lives.

If the Holy Spirit did not have the job and the ability to become very active in our daily lives, then the Bible would not be using the words quenching, resisting, rebelling, or grieving the Holy Spirit.

If you are quenching the Holy Spirit, then this means He is already moving in on you to try and help you out. Otherwise, there would be nothing to quench. Same thing with the other three key words – resisting, rebelling, and grieving. If the Holy Spirit was not becoming very active in your daily life in the first place, then there would be nothing to resist, grieve, or rebel against.

All 4 of these words are very strong words, once again showing that the Holy Spirit is not only living on the inside of each one of us, but once He is in there, He wants to become very active in our daily life so He can help us complete our divine destiny with the Lord, along with helping us to become the kind of a person God wants us to become in Him through the sanctification process He wants to do with all of us.

You cannot fulfill your true purpose and calling in this life, and become the true sanctified saint God is wanting you to become in Him unless you have the Holy Spirit helping you out with all of this. This is why the Holy Spirit is called “The Helper” in the Bible. This is why Jesus has said that without Him, we can do absolutely nothing in this life.

Bottom line with these first three captions – the Bible is telling all of us very clearly that not only do we have the Holy Spirit living on the inside of us as a result of accepting Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior, but these verses are also giving us additional information that the Holy Spirit has a specific ministry with all of us – and that specific ministry is to guide us, lead us, and teach us in this life.

And if the Holy Spirit has the job of guiding us and teaching us in this life, then this means He is going to try and supernaturally communicate to all of us from time to time. And your job will then be to learn the different ways He will communicate to you – which will now take us right into the next section – the 8 different ways that the Holy Spirit will lead us and communicate to us in this life.

    MY STORY:

    23 years ago when my son was 7 years, I was called into his school and told they believed he was sexually molested and he portrayed all of the signs of a sexually abused child. I myself had been aware of how he was acting and saying things I did not think normal but at 28 years old honestly I was naïve about thinking adults doing things to children. I could not fathom who did it but had one suspicion at that time and it was his stepfather whom I was married to at the time. He was a little unusual and I had begun to think he had homosexual tendencies (although this does not make one a child molester). I just could not imagine who did anything to my son. He never went to babysitters as I never went “out” so he was always with me, his stepfather and of course his daily sitter while we worked that had kept him from age 2 to age 7 when I found out. His sitter he had for all those years was my neighbor and she was also my Sunday school teacher and I gave my life to the Lord in her home. Her husband was church treasurer and sometimes helped with the daycare as he seemed to always be in between jobs. I actually trusted them more than my own family. Well…needless to say, my son’s behavior got so out of control he had to be institutionalized for 3 months at Vanderbilt Children’s Psychiatric Hospital in Nashville as I lived outside of that area. They of course did all the normal “play therapy” but to no avail. In the meantime my husband and I separated and my son and I moved to an apartment. His behavior got worse…he began to also curse the name of Jesus. I had him prayed for, prayed over and everything you can imagine. Once a person came to my apartment and told me that there was a demon of homosexuality after my son. I was not aware back then that people really could discern spirits but I never doubted what he told me. My husband and I did get back together and we moved back home but divorced a year later. At that time, my son at 9 years old tried to commit suicide by taking an overdose of the medication he was on. He was again put in an institution and stayed in patient for 3 more months and then went in the day for 6 more months to their day program. They abused him physically I found out and of course I immediately took him out of the program. During this time they tried to get him to talk about his abuse and he adamantly refused. Period. During this last hospital stay, some other children that were 4 years of age…2 others to be exact, went home from the same day care my son went to all those years and told things that had been done to them that were sexually inappropriate to say the least. We ALL went to the same church. We ALL trusted this daycare provider of course as they were leaders in our church. I was shocked to say the least. I confronted them and asked the wife could her husband possibly have been the one to do something to my child as she had shared with me during our friendship that he had been sexually abused by his father when he was growing up. I was devastated and told them I needed answers. Well…she hung up on me as I had called her on the phone and we NEVER spoke again. They changed churches and I was going through so much trying to get my son help and he never would tell who did what to him so I had no legal recourse against them. He did tell me the day before this suicide attempt at 9 years old that he had to give an adult a “blow job” and adamantly refused to tell me who. He then tried to kill himself by taking an overdose. They eventually closed down their daycare I had heard and that was like I said 23 years ago. My son tried to commit suicide again at 14 and again at 21 years of age. To say he least I have struggled to keep my faith that God would one day take care of this but I NEVER gave up. I kept the faith of a mustard seed most days and some days occasionally a mountain although it was hard.

    Fast forward to Good Friday of 2011. On this day my son beat his 6 year old little boy and left many many marks on his entire back. (He had rarely ever spanked him though before this). I was devastated for the poor child and knew the anger from my son’s sexual abuse was coming to a head. Up till this time my son had become a drug addict, alcoholic and verbally and physically abused his wife. He threatened to burn the house down with her in it on numerous occasions. I did what I should have done and that was I called the Department of Human Services. Life has not been the same since. I was so devastated I told God that 23 years had passed and I needed to know who did what to my son as it was literally killing us all. My son over all these last years’ refused to talk about any of it much less admit he had a problem. I got on my knees and told the Lord that I would seek Him like I had never in my life and would study His word for the truth as I said in my spirit I sensed he was returning soon and I was afraid that my son would to go hell since he cursed the name of Jesus. He used to tell me that there was not a God or all that happened to him surely could not have happened. The Lord told me in my spirit “seek My face and I will fix your problems”…so I got on the internet and got my bible and I typed in the words” God I want to know the truth” and started studying. I told him I needed the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

    As I studied of course my main interest/focus was on the book of Revelation/Daniel and every scripture involved it led me to. I began to read and read and read and read. For hours every night…doing exactly what I told the Lord I would do and He said He would fix my problems. Well…as I began to read different interpretations of scripture I began to get confused on “who” had it right so I just kept studying. God says to ask the Holy Spirit to teach us and even to discern the truth if what pastors teach us as well is his truth. We ARE NOT TO TAKE YOUR WORD OR ANYONE ELSES WORD…we are to study ourselves. About 4-5 weeks into my diligent seeking, I was so confused one day and in my mind thought “is it this way or is it this way”…and as I would think of each direction I started feeling little flutters in my belly. At first I was like…”what is that”…is that you God? Well…I kept studying, seeking, praying and repenting of my sins (God was really cleansing my soul). As I studied over the next week or so He would move in my belly directing me which way to go as far as the last week of Daniel. As you know there are many views out there…and about pre trib, post trib, etc. After a few weeks of this I was truly amazed and still not quite sure what was happening. I went for a ride with my husband one day although I told him I really want to sit at my desk and study and as we were riding I was thinking about everything I had read and to myself asking…ok, is it this way or that way…and God started moving in my belly answering me when I was thinking in the direction He wanted me to go/study. I chuckled to myself and thought to God…Lord, Jack (my husband) will think I am nuts when I tell him you are moving in my belly…and I literally FELT the Lord chuckle back!

    Ok, so over all of last summer I literally repented of sins, ask God’s forgiveness, rejoiced in all that He was doing. As I went through this I would be just thinking certain thoughts in my mind on who did what to my son many years ago and realized that the Lord was ready to give me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth just as I had prayed for. He revealed as I asked questions by literally moving in my belly (to yes and no answers) that my son was abused by his Stepfather AND the babysitters husband. He revealed to me my father was sexually abused (in comes generational sins). I too had done things with my brother at a very young age from about 5-10 years old that were not of God and only of satan and although I had gone to my brother about 5 years ago and talked to him about my memories and had done a lot of healing from this already ….it was one more generation of perversion satan had managed to get his foot in the door…and carried the sexual sin another generation with my son. I did know that since I had gone to my brother that I had broken the chain and prayed the Lord would help me break it with my son and what happened to him.

    My current husband had some pornography issues and had for about 10 years as well but denied it. Well…the Lord revealed to me all that was taking place with him. He actually told me to tell my husband that what he was doing was “detestable” to him and he needed to denounce it. I went to him and gave him the message from the Lord and he of course denied it. I kept studying, seeking, praying and God kept revealing things to me. He revealed to me in advance when my husband would get phone calls from 2 specific people that they were involved in perversion as well…when the phone would ring He would literally move in my belly and I would ask..Lord do they have the same problem…and He moved and moved (weird but true) I kept seeking. He told me again a few weeks later to tell my husband what he was doing was “detestable” and to denounce it. I told him again. He again tried to deny it. I said…I am telling you what God told me to tell you…Well, things started getting evil in my house. Literally one night the Holy Spirit vibrated my stomach so hard it felt like a chainsaw inside! LOLOL!! Again, weird but true, warning me of the evil of something going on with my husband. I prayed for safety, and as I would look in my husband eyes they looked weird, different and evil. That was how I can explain it. Also, I told my son what the Lord revealed to me about his father molesting him. He did not deny or admit it. He said “I don’t understand how God can tell you in your belly”…and I am going to leave the past in the past….”Dad has enough problems with his health right now”…and I don’t remember much but I am moving forward. I told him, David you cannot move forward unless you deal with this. Jesus can help you if you will let him. Now…understand after I called the dept. of human services on him for beating his child he told me I was right, he was wrong and he was going to do everything in his life differently. Well…as I prayed and sought the Lord as I promise, God worked on his end of the deal as I began to sense a change in my sons spirit like you would not believe even before I told him about knowing his father did this. Now…my daughter- in-law thought I had gone off the deep end. I had told her that I felt like shooting my son’s father and she took it literal and told my son…Your mom is going to shoot your dad…they called and told him what was going on. He called me and said “so God told you I molested David”…and I said YEP, he did. He started crying and all he could say was “what about all the good things I did for him”…I told him he needed to repent of what he did to David to God and to his own son for what he did. He was crying so hard…then he hung up on me. That was last September. Now, what this truth the Lord has shown me did was to let my son know…”yes, there is a God” as he did not believe it or the evil/perversion surely would not have happened to him…therefore it was keeping him from believing in Jesus Christ…just what satan would have wanted and David would never give his life to the Lord. So, since my son knew he had never told a sole that his father had molested him, he had to know that the Lord is truly real! Jesus Christ won this battle…

    Then….God said it was time to separate from my husband…the evil was getting worse and I could sense danger (although he was far from a dangerous person).I left him. He begged me not to but I did. The day after I left he got on his knees and prayed for me to come back. He realized after a day that he was praying for the wrong thing and the next day he got on his knees and prayed for God to cleanse him of the perversion ( the perversion he adamantly denied to me) and to forgive him. Well…he told me the Holy Spirit literally vibrated his entire body from top to bottom and he felt the demons leave him. I then understood the “look” in his eyes and the evil presence I felt and that God warned me of the last few weeks I was home. We began Christian counseling and we have actually now reconciled this last week and I have moved home after a 6 month separation.

    But…these past 6 months we have been separated I kept praying, studying, seeking just like I promised God. Never gave up! And…He started showing me many more truths than I ever could imagine. He moves in my belly and lets me know when I am in the presence of evil spirits….in public places, when my husband and I are around each other and they are trying to attack him, he has a son that is very far from God and every time I am around him God warns me of the evil, He warned me when my car was getting ready to break down, He warned/warns me when I make a wrong turn on the highway ( sometimes it takes me a few minutes to realize why He is moving In my stomach but I eventually do). The list goes on and on. He also though still continues to move in my belly when I am studying truths. (the feelings/movements are different for evil vs good/truth).

    Well…this all lead up to my contemplating that I did not think that satan would want us to know about when the covenant was signed and God gave me this dream:

    The Lord woke me in the middle of the night 3 weeks ago as I was dreaming about the 70th week of Daniel, the last 7 years on earth. When I woke, I immediately remembered that God told me we are IN THE FINAL YEARS NOW…to not be looking for any covenant. I ask him “Lord did you wake me so I would remember this dream and he moved in my stomach to FIRMLY and positively tell me YES I DID. I then went back to sleep and dreamed the Lord telling me that I needed to be looking for the abomination of desolation next. He then woke me VERY FIRMLY again by moving in my stomach and I asked him again “Lord did you wake me again so I would remember this dream” and in no uncertain terms he said by moving and moving in me YES I DID. The next morning I woke and prayed and sought the Lord and in amazement asked him to please clarify that it was him waking me and telling me what he did and he absolutely moved in me like he does when he wants to GET MY ATTENTION. Yes, I did wake you and this is what I wanted you to remember.

    I feel so grateful for the truths He has shown me. I am cleansed from the inside out and feel blessed to be able to worship Him so freely. I guess when I asked for the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth he honored my request as I honored my commitment to Him by diligently seeking Him as I promised. As I said, some of the truths are personal and some are not. I believe that the Lord gave me the truths about these final days because I am bold enough to speak it unlike most pastors of today as most are not even studying or paying attention that we are living in the last days as we know it.

      Deb, thank you for sharing your story 28th such truth, courage, and confidence in our Lord. You are a blessing as a deciple. It really is about truth and grace to lovingly lead others to share the relationship that is everlasting life. You are wonderful!

    • Daff - October 24, 2016 at 6:44 am

      Hi Deb, I enjoyed and is blessed with your story. Thanks for sharing. For 2 weeks I have this tummy ache and bloating every dawn that would wake me up for hours. I prayed to God to heal me of whatever it was and thought it might be IBS or cancer. Yesterday as my 2 brothers in Christ was praying for me in the church my tummy from below my navel was moving upward like theres a baby moving so vigorously like I experienced with my daughter some 15 yrs ago. It was really moving that I bent so low because its moving ipward. I thought something is gonna come out of me but no. It was not painful but felt so weird. And intil this morning when I put my hands over my tummy it would move. Something is moving inside. I like it hahha. I believe It is the Holy Spirit. I am a worship leader and I pray God will add more anointing on me. If you have any word for me or if God is speaking to your heart about my situation please let meknow. I am glad there’s someone have my experience too cause I felt silly over this vefore I thought it was just me or something.

    Thanking God for this great work. I am so glad to say this helped me very much..
    thank you bro Mike.
    my prayers for you
    may God bless you through His Holy Spirit richly in Jesus Christ….

  8. Stella Tan - December 1, 2012 at 12:41 am

    This is great spiritual insight for me. I believe God led me to read this article because I have been asking Him to reveal himself to me..It amazes me that the Holy Spirit is such a ‘gentleman’ and needs us to ‘officially’ ask Him to lead us. On the other hand it is a bit scary not knowing what it entails to fulfil God’s purpose for us and reach our destiny. Yes, God I have surrendered to you, asked you to sanctify me so now I just have to let you lead me by trusting and obeying you. Please be merciful and gentle with me!

  9. Lisa Graves Bacaneri - January 4, 2013 at 1:08 am

    Thank- You very much for this article. It was in God's perfect timing that I read it.

  10. Omie Clifford Brown - February 2, 2013 at 8:16 pm

    for me, i have always loved and relied on this website for deeper knowledge and understanding of the word of God. I pray for more immesurable blessings and financial empowerment to all who made this genuine gospel of Jesus Christ ministry freely avilable and acessible to all! I also pray that this ministry will grow to have a free online certificate awarding bible school. Thanks for this wonderful work of charity for winning souls into the kingdom of God.

    Diane says, First of all I thank God that he allowed you to post this web site because so many of us have not been properly taught about the Holy Spirit. We’ve been missed informed, but if you don’t know or know where to go to seek out this information, you’re left in a dismal, it’s like being stuck between a rock and a hard place.I pray that God will lead others to this web site as he has lead me to it. Again thank you very much. God Bless!!!

    Sir, there was a mistake in the scripture reference you quoted on developing a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit. It should have been 2 Corinthians 13:13 and not 13:14 since there is no 14th verse to the chapter 13 of the second book of Corinthians.
    I hope you will make this correction. God bless you.

    Mr Noah
    I too look and test everything I see, read, and hear against the holy scriptures and found there is a verse 14 in 2 Corinthians chapter 13 in the King James Version (KJV). I was reading the comments and my heart could not set still as I read your comment. Keep an open heart and mind for all translations of the Gospel of our Lord.

    and too the Author…
    God bless your work, it has inspired me as well. God Bless.

    Since I was baptised fully in water. 37 years ago. I have have the guidance of the Holy Spirit. God has blessed me so much with knowledge before events happen. It has literally saved my life from abuse.
    Every one has gifts.
    It is God’s wish that we love all people.
    Everything that has happened in my life has made me stronger in faith and spirituality. I am an Earthly angel. I want to be in Heaven with God. I know that Jesus is returning soon. I pray for everyone to have a wonderful heavenly spiritual journey to eternal life. God is everything to me.

    The Holy Spirit is a Comforter. I know that he is always there for me no matter what trial or tribulation I am going through. I know that he sees me through every circumstance and situation. He also shows me things that are trying to come up against me; and how to ward them off in the Spirit. Praying in the Spirit; in un-known tongues; “The Communication between you and God”; what a powerful and beautiful experience this is. I treasure all the intimate time that I spend in the presence of the Lord. To be edified and built up in my most Holy Faith!!

  19. Paulina - February 25, 2015 at 1:32 pm

    How can i know that the demons has counterfeit my tongue and how can get out of this situation ? Another, how can i know that this is a false vision, prophesy or dream ?

    I was spending a lot of personal time with Jesus, the Father. I was glowing ! I went to church I was outside talking to a member about all the things God is doing for me all of a sudden my arms chest and face became a soft warm numbing feeling ,the crown of my head i felt a ring of fire and I was looking up into the sky with so much love for the father. She lead me inside the church into another room it was very bright in there and peaceful in there, some time later the Paster entered I told him about the things God has done for me then we prayed but then I noticed how beautiful blue his eyes were after we prayed I left. 2 weeks later I went back to church met the paster in the hall and I said to him where are your blue eyes? He had nothing to say about that I’m thinking he thinks I’m crazy, So I’m wandering why did God let me see him with beautiful blue eyes? The eyes I saw were much bigger than his in size but very beautiful i actually felt I wasn’t worthy to look. Does anyone know what this means? I’m praying about this. I had asked God to allow me to see into the spiritual world and then this happened. Is it good or bad?

    Hi. I once had an experience about a year ago and I haven’t been able to interpret it properly. About a year ago I was going through a very difficult period in my life and I wasn’t quite myself. I was always highly stressed anxious unhappy fatigued and unable to focus nothing was working for me, and the worse part I couldn’t focus or think straight. So I decided for the first time to pray and fast for a month, even though i prayed every now and then but not enough. What I was going through was to much I knew I had to try something different I knew I had to seek guidance from the Lord.
    1. On the 7th day after I broke my fast and was eating my dinner while watching tv, the tv began to have waves of vibrations coming out of it. it was weird. I kept blinking just in case there was something wrong with my eyes. I place my food aside and after a brief moment it stopped.
    2. And the second scary part is for some reason my dad who was living in his own house away from me, starting panicking and calling me as if he sensed something.
    I’ve never seen him act so scared like that it was weird. My dad is not a christian and to be honest I suspect some sort of unhealthy tie between the two of us which quite frankly I don’t particularly care for. I’ve been praying for deliverance and for the ties between us to be broken, so I can be free to live my life and serve the Lord without any negative influences.
    Can you please help translate what happened to me. Thanks

    Emily from oct 8 2015,

    I know your post is old, but I wonder if your anxiety that prompted you to pray and fast was a warning from the Holy Spirit. If you do indeed have unhealthy soul ties with your father, whatever unclean spirit is living in him could probably sense the breakage occurring, hence the frantic call from him. How are things now?

  23. Kelvin - March 1, 2016 at 11:52 am

    just two corrections on that article.

    First, many pastors understand that their communication with the Holy Ghost is security to their ministries. that is if most members can dial direct(as i call it), then what will be the use of churches and ministries in the first place. it is unbelievably countless things that many servants of God are willing to sacrifice for the sake of themselves in multiple areas, as i believe including tithe(and the law of moses etc). so while this affords them a set of privileges. the problem is always a high-cost of sacrificing or twisting a revelation straight from God. I understand that when you deal with the Holy Spirit honesty is paramount. you can’t twist him because of John 14 which clearly says that he is all- knowing. and the problem is that, this Holy Spirit gives us all this information for a reason. a sacrifice results in a cost.

    Second.

    it is true that Satan so far as communication with the Holy Spirit is concerned is concerned, he attempts to mislead or deceive our minds especially in the area of questioning the message from the Holy Spirit. we should know that doubts are his greatest strategy. so the main idea behind the devil when coming to receiving from the Holy Spirit is not necessarily deception, but rather questioning. as God’s children who are grounded in the power of God we are very much immune to him doing as he pleases(refer to Job). so we could as well scale down that demonic fear some references to accurately explain the process that actually takes place when a Christian is under devil’s attack due to an interactive relationship with the Holy Spirit.
    but wow, nevertheless WHAT A GREAT ARTICLE (I LOVE IT)

    thank you for opening my eyes to some seemingly obvious character qualities of who the Holy Spirit is that I didn’t realize were of Him. I now am able to think of Him & to see Him in a new & wonderfully personal way & I eagerly look forward to communing with Him. God bless

  25. Comfort - March 5, 2017 at 4:05 am

    About five year ago, I used to see myself praying for demon possessed people in my dreams. This led me to want to communicate with God directly. I was hungry and thirsty for him but didn’t real do anything about it… I can say, everything I knew about God was what my mum told us.

    In December, 2015, I started getting involved in church programs and from there I learned a lot about God. Started fasting on my own and on three occasions dreamt of rapture…..it felt so real. I saw people ascending to heaven and I was left behind. God reminded me of all dreams I had and didn’t do anything about. I tried to wake up but couldn’t. A girl who looked like me, more like my twin then said to me, “when we wake up, we will tell people about it. ” I agreed and I woke up all of the sudden. it was like I my soul was thrown back into my body.

    tried to bring people to God through sharing the word but it felt like it wasn’t enough. recently I’ve had this hunger and thirst for God and now being serious about it. I want the Holy Spirit to speak directly to me and want him to work in me. This article has encouraged me to seek the Holy Spirit even more knowing that it can really happen even in these days. Thank you so much.!
