He lived a modest life, never owned a car and preferred the old black dial phone that he was given by his Grandfather, back in 1958.
He would go outside for his daily walk, tipping his hat at the ladies and saying “good morning” to all he met.
He would walk slowly to the local coffee shop, on 4th St, to drink his daily cup of coffee and watch the people as they walked by.
He had a secret that nobody knew about. He was a multi-millionaire, who had been given instructions by his grandfather, who made the family fortune.
His secret was this: Starting when he reached the age of 65, he was instructed to purposely be kind to all, greet all he met and the individual who stopped to talk to him, would be given a million dollars.
Sadly, twenty years later and now at the age of 85, nobody had taken the time to stop to talk to him.
Most would smile, nod and continue walking on by. Everybody knew him, or so they thought, but nobody took the time to stop to even talk to him for a moment.
The old man slowly walked home, grieving, because he could not bless anybody on yet another day.
So it is with the Holy Spirit and MOST in the professing “body of Christ”. We smile, nod and continue walking on by . . . busy with our lives and don’t take time to know Him, to talk to Him and listen to Him, even though we profess He lives within us.
The Holy Spirit has gifts, blessings, guidance, direction, wisdom, warnings and is waiting for each person who will heed what He whispers in their hearts, or through the Bible, or in dreams and visions. . . . but sadly, MOST people keep walking on by. . . grieving the Holy Spirit, because they don’t want to take the time to stop and truly know Him.
Ephesians 4:30 –
“Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.”
It is a VERY dangerous thing, my friends, to grieve the Holy Spirit. If we continue in that state of rebellion, we WILL bring judgement upon our heads.
Isaiah 63:10 – “But they rebelled And grieved His Holy Spirit; Therefore He turned Himself to become their enemy, He fought against them.“
PLEASE . . . Daily ask the Holy Spirit to search your heart and show you any area that is unpleasing to the LORD . .. REPENT where you need to repent.
FORGIVE ALL who have sinned against you.
SEEK THE LORD JESUS, OUR SAVIOR, YAHSHUA, WHILE HE STILL MAY BE FOUND. . . For the day is coming when each person who reads this post . . . And all who are alive right now. . . . . Will be stepping into eternity. . . READY OR NOT.
