-Why did God give us the Holy Spirit?

So that we might have a both a means of energy to recharge ourselves, and a relationship with the Father, the Great Infinite Intelligence of the universe who created all there is, both seen and unseen. This relationship with the Spirit comes when we leave the ways of the ego and come into the higher consciousness of the Spirit.

This can have a great effect for change of our hearts, as it did in the hearts of those with Emmanuel, as we look at them before and compare their attitudes after His death and upon receipt of the Holy Spirit.

This can have a great energy effect, keeping us charged up, filling up the hollow inside of us, the hollow created by the drain of just being human, the drain which increases the more negative things we encounter.

Peter's example Matthew 26:34 to end of chapter. Even after Emmanuel's resurrection, some doubted:.Matthew 28:17 "And when they saw him, they worshipped him; but some doubted.".They had not yet received the Holy Spirit.

Without the Holy Spirit with you, 'calling' you, a making you aware of, so that you become interested in spiritual concerns, even if Emmanuel himself was there talking to you, you would be like Peter and Thomas and even after they were there for Emmanuel's crucifixion and resurrection.

For spiritual things to 'stick', it takes the action of the Great Infinite One:.John 21:1-3 "After these things Emmanuel shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise showed he himself. There were together Simon Peter and Thomas called Didymus and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee and the sons of Zebedee and two other of his disciples. Simon Peter said unto them, I'm going fishing.(in other words; 'to hell with this, I'm outta here to go and live my life as I darn well deem fit). They say unto him, We're also going with you. They went forth and entered into a ship immediately and that night they caught nothing." John 20:25 "The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he.(Thomas).said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails and put my finger into the print of the nails and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.".(the key of belief)

John 20:30 "And many other signs truly did Emmanuel in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book."

But after the Holy Spirit came, there was change:.1Corinthians 2:12 "Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God.(the true reality).that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God."

After the Holy Spirit came upon Paul, there was drastic change. So it can be in lives today. All one needs to understand God is His Holy Spirit in you. From there one will be guided into an increasing understanding, and in most cases that seems to involve reading the Bible

-Are Christ and the Father both in us? John 17:21

Being in Him or Him and/or the Father 'being in us'.(*).means that we have His holy nature, the primary.component of which is love:.1John 4:8 and verse 16 "He that loves not knows not God for God is love."

In Christ is all the fullness of the Father:.Colossians 1:19; 1Thessalonians 1:1. They are one in Spirit, attitude, outlook and nature and these frequencies indwell.(we have been renewed in mind, now able to stay tuned to His 'station').us individually as hopeful attitudes and we now have an implanted motivation that typifies a genuine concern for others and our emotional makeup and expression of it is one of joy. Our spirit.(1Corinthians 2:11).with theirs is one Spirit.(1Corinthians 6:17), for all is of God:.1Peter 4:11; 1John 4:9.

We are enveloped 'immersed'.(original Greek for 'baptized').into His Holy Nature, now tuned in as it were to receive the same nature, outlook that comes from Him. Our heart has been retuned to pick up 'station love'.

Giving assent to the words of the Great Infinite Oneness enables them to be living spiritual words in our lives:.John 1:1-4; 1Corinthians 2:5.

The Creator never overrides our hearts. We, living at the low consciousness ego level can choose a higher consciousness to function by. Why is this so important?.Ephesians 3:19.

A growing relationship with this Invisible Intelligence we mostly refer to as God,.increasingly brings forth the power and character of this high consciousness realm, increasingly that is, because of your love of others. 

One's love toward others from his or her heart provides strength for daily living, because when love flows out more of it flows into a person and he or she has more than before:.Philippians 1:19 "...the supply of the Spirit of Emmanuel the Christ." Ephesians 3:19 "And to know the love of Christ...that you might be filled with all the fulness of God." Nehemiah 8:10 "...for the joy of the LORD is your strength."

This is growth.(1, 2, 3, 4, 5), necessary because we couldn't make use of all the energy through the Soul all at once while still mostly at the level of the ego:.Ephesians 4:13. Your desire is the key to having more spirit energy in your life, because it leads you to how to go inward to get it.

And here is great power for good:.Ephesians 1:19 "And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to usward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power.".Ephesians 3:16-20.

And what is the regulator of this believing leading to this mighty power?

John 1:16 "And of his fulness.(Philippians 2:5,6; Ephesians 3:19).have all we received.(original is 'taken'; some desire more than others).and grace for grace." Colossians 1:19 "For it pleased the Father that in him.(and we are His body:.Ephesians 1:21-23).should all fulness dwell.".And this applies to all who are persons of the spiritual quality of love.

Colossians 1:10 "That you might walk worthy of the Lord, unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.(2Peter 3:18)." Colossians 1:13 "Who has delivered us from the power of darkness and has translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son." Ephesians 3:19 "And to know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fulness of God.".(note that it's love that enables you to be filled)

So ask for more of the Holy Nature of love:.Ephesians 5:18 "...be filled with the Spirit.".That is where the power is. Your spirit is connected with the Soul of all. It hears. Here is one reason to ask for that which will benefit you..

The Creator will bring circumstances and things to our minds so that more of the Spirit can be able to flow into us:.2Kings 2:9 "And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha: Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me." Philippians 1:19 ".....the supply of the Spirit of Emmanuel the Christ."

If He gave Elisha a double portion, why not you too?  Elisha asked for double and got it! You could ask for triple.or more. Ask for it!:.Romans 15:4 "For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope."

-What does it mean to be."filled with the Spirit".(Ephesians 5:18)?

Once filled, you are filled. You have got it all. Most people having accepted the nature of the Infinite One into their hearts.('accepting Emmanuel' as it is commonly said).fall short in awareness of all the potential they have in Him, especially so, once they become involved in ego level religion; no, not churches and the fellowship with others, but rather the crappy religion that often goes along with it.

John 3:34; Philippians 1:19.

To be filled with the Spirit is to be full and fufilled by the indwelling of that which many of us fail to comprehend effectively, that being Creator's love.(1John 4:8,16).and grace and sufficiency for us without reservation:.2Corinthians 3:5; 9:8; 2Peter 1:2; 3:18.

Once you are filled with this new life, you know there is no need for searching for life elsewhere, as so many youth do in their quest for fulfillment 'out there' somewhere.(friends and adventurous activities).

Some spiritual people believe they have needs that the Creator is not presently meeting. Impossible! He meets all needs on a moment by moment basis; what's impossible with the Creator?. They are just looking in life where they are not yet and seeing negatives in it. The one caveat is that the Creator may presently be using circumstances in one's life in such a way as to bring a person to where his purpose on Earth will be; which is where his passion will be ignited for good for mankind.

Paul is cautioning them here in Ephesians 5:18 regarding this question on being filled with the spirit, not to drink too much to the point of drunkenness, but rather to find fulfillment in spiritual things, such as study and acts of compassion toward others, etc., actions that bring more of the Holy Spirit forth into one's life.
