If a person has a peaceful and just Godlike nature/demeanor, they'll simply "suffer"/endure their own problems instead of take out their frustrations on others (carry their own cross). If they first carry their own "cross",...THEN they will be able to follow Jesus.

Matthew 10:38
"does not take his cross".

The Holy Spirit is not an object that you GET, a Godly nature is what we should HAVE (behavior/attitude).

Living water baptism (John 7:38) of the spirit is not simply "putting on airs".

God is no respecter of PERSONALITIES, He only has regard for a person's true nature (KJV Acts 10:34).

Our behavior/conscience is the stronghold of a Godlike nature/spirit.

If only you would all love the truth (like Mic!). The Bible makes it clear that there is only ONE way you can "receive the Holy Spirit":

"When the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them. When they arrived, they prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit, because the HOLY SPIRIT HAD NOT YET COME upon any of them, they had SIMPLY BEEN BAPTIZED into the name of the Lord Jesus. Then PETER and JOHN placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit." (Acts 8:14-17)

It's only from the Sacrament of Confirmation - "the laying on of hands" - from an Apostolic successor (bishop), that you "receive the Holy Spirit".
---Luke65 on 11/6/08

Leslie: "How to recieve the Holy Spirit - repent and be baptized (Acts 2:38)."

It's unfortunate that most Christians stop at being baptised by water in the name of Jesus. There is another baptism - the baptism of the Holy Spirit. It is this baptism that Christians are able to perform greater miracles than Jesus.
---Steveng on 11/6/08

Some people receive what they think is the Holy Spirit, with signs and wonders and their lives show forth the fruits. Others receive a spirit, but whatever they may think, it is not the Holy Spirit, and their lives do not show the fruits of the Holy Spirit. They are conning themselves. The sad thing is that they never realize it until it is too late. I say this because bible believing people who think they can go on sinning and still have the Holy Spirit, never had the Holy Spirit to begin with.
---frances008 on 11/6/08

Regardless of what sin a christian committs, they will never loose Him, the Holy Spirit. The bible says that we are sealed unto the day of redemption.(Ephesians 4:30)

When a person gets saved he/she baptized(or placed) into the body of Christ. Then there is the baptism of/infilling of the Holy Spirit w/ speaking in other tongues as well as water baptism.
---Rickey on 11/6/08

There are occassions in the life of an RC when he/she is endowed with the Holy Spirit 1 at baptism and the other when being Confirmed with the TRUE Holy Spirit.and lastly to keep the H/S and seek His guidance by going to Confession and receiving The Holy Eucharist Remaining in the state of Grace.Any sin caused, causes the H/S to leave you as The H/S is God and 3rd person of the Blessed Trinity.Your body is a temple of the Holy spirit if you desire to give Him that place of honour KEEP IT CLEAN.
---Mic on 11/5/08

Many people simply hunger for the "bread of life" but really don't have a peaceful and just Godlike nature.

Many people who call themselves Christians will simply 'put on airs' with a Godly personality. God is no respecter of personalities, He only has regard for a person's true NATURE (the KJV accurately expresses this in Acts 10:34).

...but if you truly believe in Jesus

" the scripture has said, 'Out of his heart shall flow rivers of living water" (John 7:38) you will "neither thirst" (Rev. 7:16) because Jesus came by...
1 John 5:6
"water and blood".

Living water baptism is important so that we can learn the "depths of God" (1 Corin. 2:10).
---more_excellent_way on 11/5/08

---Ramon had some good things to say he is last two post.
Especially this statement,"The moment of conversion a person recieve the Holy Spirit. Not the baptism of the Holy Spirit."
The baptism of the Holy Spirit being the gift of speaking in tongues.
---mima on 11/4/08

How to recieve the Holy Spirit - repent and be baptized (Acts 2:38).
---Leslie on 11/4/08

Salvation and Baptism of the Holy Spirit are two DIFFERENT things. There are some people out there that claim to be Christians, but pursecute Christians - this says that either they are NOT saved or that they have NOT been baptized with the Holy Spirit. The Bible says that only spirit understands spiritual things, not carnal man.
---Leslie on 11/4/08

To say that recieving the Holy Spirit at conversion is "Baptism of the Holy Spirit" is incorrect people!!.The Baptism in the Holy is and operation of the Spirit distinct and separate from His work of regeneartion.. Just as the Spirit's sanctifing work complements His regenerating work, so the baptism in the Spirit complments the regenerating and sanctifying work of the Spirit.

The moment of conversion a person recieve the Holy Spirit. Not the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
---Ramon on 11/4/08

#3.One can be regenerated and indwelt by the Holy Spirit, but still not be baptized in the Holy Spirit (Acts 19:6).Acts 3:19- Throughout this present age and until Christ's return, God will send "times of refreshing" (The outpouring of the Holy Spirit) to all who repent and are converted. Note: Acts 4:31- All the believers, including the Apostles who been previosly filled(2:4) are freshly filled to meet the continuing opposition of the jews.

Read Acts 8:14-17.
---Ramon on 8/22/07

Okebaram , If you want to penpal me about this topic that's fine, because I am finished posting on this subject. God Bless!
---Mrs._Morgan on 10/28/06

I've been taught that you receive the gift of the Holy Spirit when you have made a good confession, confessed your sins and are baptized the same way that Christ was baptized.
---Norma7374 on 10/28/06

#2: My life could not have changed the way it did instantaneously had He not entered me when I got saved; the peace, the joy, the change of lifestyle. But it was later before I got FILLED with the Holy Ghost (that is a much greater measure than initially of the Holy Ghost) And like I said, every saved person will be raptured when the church is, they form the church. God bless.
---Okebaram on 10/28/06

(I.)I find that folks that foolishly attempt to minimize the power , the uniqueness in the Blood of a Jesus, and folks that claim "Once Saved Always Saved", seem to flock together, makes perfect sense! They are denying the power thereof (II Tim 3:5). I've seen a website of a false teacher who claims the OSAS false doctrine, AND he also denies that the Blood of Jesus is divine, Totally of the Anti-Christ.

Mrs. Morgan: "Okebaram, Once again there is a difference between the Holy Ghost being WITH a person...and the Holy Ghost being IN a person"

True. The Holy Spirit was WITH me BEFORE I became born-again. This is what happens to the unsaved who are not totally rebellious to spiritual things. He led me and my family to salvation, at which point he came into us...Con't
---Okebaram on 10/28/06

Mrs.M, in Jo 14 the Spirit had yet to be poured out. Jesus said 'for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.'

The Spirit couldn't indwell a believer before Christ's resurrection. In the Acts 19 vs the Spirit HAD been poured out.

'But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.' Jo.14:26

#2. Again, MM, in Jo 14 Jesus had yet to go to the cross.

So how can you link this verse ^ to the Holy Spirit dwelling "with" us as "occuring at the moment of our salvation" *before* Christ even died for our sins?

I was looking around Mrs. Morgan's pastor's web site. (Ernest Angley) Now I see where she gets the partial rapture teaching from. Basicly what she has said is a parroting of his teaching there.

(2.)People will just have to let the Lord lead them in this matter,I follow the lead of the Holy Spirit, not my own reasoning. Jesus told the disciples "For he [the Holy Ghost] dwelleth WITH you and SHALL BE IN you"(John 14:17)These are clearly 2 separate events Act's 19 also proves these are 2 separate events(Acts 19:2). But people will believe what they believe. I'll leave it with that, on my part. Christian's will see for themselves SOON. God Bless!

God expects Christian's to hearken to His Words,Jesus said to TARRY,be ENDUED with power from on high, and thats what Christian's should do. TRUE born-again Christian's are fit to be the temple of the Holy Ghost, they are clean(saved), but the Truth is, most don't go that far, They stop at Salvation(being washed in the Blood of Jesus,having the Holy Spirit WITH THEM, but haven't been baptized by Him. Most ignore Jesus' commandment to tarry.
---Mrs._Morgan on 10/27/06

Mrs Morgan says that a Christian only "has the spirit with them" not in them.

The bible says:1 Cor 6:19, "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?"

Rom 8:8-11, "So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
---Bruce5656 on 10/27/06

But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
---Bruce5656 on 10/27/06

But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you."

MM#2 Baptism in/with the Holy Spirit is more specific. In this phrase, To "baptize," (according to Strongs) uses the frequentative form of bapto, "to dip," (used among the Greeks to signify the dyeing of a garment, or to dip a cup into a larger container, "overwhelming" it.)

John the Baptist said (Mar 1:8) I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.

Just trying to clarify terms here. This is not the same as "being filled with" the Holy Spirit.
---Donna2277 on 10/27/06

MM #3-- Sorry to belabor a point...but note how different the "Baptism with the Holy Spirit" sounds from this description by Jesus (in Jhn 15:5) "I am the vine, ye [are] the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing."
This I think is the difference between being "baptised with the Holy and being "filled". Using the 2 terms interchangeably invariably leads to confusion.

MM#1 -- What scripture says that the Holy Spirit is WITH Christians, but IN only those who are "Baptised in the Holy Ghost"? The term "Spirit Filled" is subject to interpretation. Your understanding of that term is as inexact as anybody else's.
---Donna2277 on 10/27/06

Sue, the Bible tells us how to get the Holy Spirit-Obey God! Acts 5:23

God has given the Holy Spirit to those that obey Him. Interesting that we need the Holy Spirit to obey (1 Pet 1:22) & the Holy Spirit is given to those who obey, but I believe the starting point is to obey what little you know and more will be imparted to you in reward of your faithfulness. Matthew 13:12
---Geoff on 10/27/06

Okebaram, Once again there is a difference between the Holy Ghost being WITH a person(which occurs at the moment of Salvation) , and the Holy Ghost being IN a person(being "Baptized in the Holy Ghost", "full of the Holy Ghost"). Many use the term "Spirit filled" but some don't understand the full-context of the meaning. The devil wants to rob Christian's , he don't want them to understand this. But the Word speaks this plainly, but people must have ears to hear.
---Mrs._Morgan on 10/27/06

(I.)The Rapture is almost upon us, Christian's that dispute this will find out soon. Why would someone want to dispute the importance of being Baptized and being full of the Holy Ghost,yielding to Him daily? Receiving(being endued with)that power from on high, like Jesus said? It most definitely won't hurt, only HELP! The Bride will be ready, not ALL Christian's are members of the Bridal company(The Glorious Church), the parable of the 10 Virgins speaks of that.

I Hope to see you in the Rapture, and in Heaven.
---Mrs._Morgan on 10/27/06

Mis Morgan, there is only two classes of people. The children of God and the children of wrath. There is no other. Where you came out with that is only in your mind. That does not come from the Bible. How can you be saved and not enter heaven? How can you be in Christ and not have eternal life? How silly your teachings. You are inventing new theologies.

Mrs. Morgan that's contradictory. Any person qualified for heaven will be raptured when the event takes place. It is not true that only Spirit-filled Christians will be raptured. Is God trying to punish or condemn the other Christians alittle bit before He saved them? God forbid! (One might as well believe in purgatory, if he/she won't assert grace)
---Okebaram on 10/26/06

Okebaram, I never said that having the Baptism of the Holy Ghost is required for Heaven(Salvation), the Blood of Jesus will wash a soul clean , making one holy, "fit for" God's Heaven. I'm saying that saved Christian's will need to be Baptized and full of the Holy Ghost, and yielded to Him daily, in order to go up in the Rapture. God Bless.
---Mrs._Morgan on 10/25/06

(IV.)Jason you said it right! You said "I believe you can be saved but not be part of the Bride". The Lord revealed that to you! I don't see people speaking like that on these blogs, but it's God's Truth. I assume that you pray and/or have prayed earnestly for godly wisdom, God Bless!

(I.)jason, Some will be saved(but they didn't receive the Holy Ghost Baptism, that precious oil mentioned in the parable of the 10 Virgins), note they were all Virgins(clean/saved) But 5 were foolish, the 5 that were wise had the OIL, (the bride has the OIL).

Ye shall receive power, and after that the Holy Ghost has come(Acts 1:8 )(Acts 19:2). These things are in the Scriptures but so many have stumbled over It...
---Mrs._Morgan on 10/25/06

(III.)Most Minister's are not preaching the Word correctly, because they are not yielding enough so that they can receive God's holy anointings of wisdom. It's really sad, but true. So Jason yes, Christian's that are saved(without the Oil), will be left, and also Christian's that are lukewarm, and cold. It is the commandment of Jesus to tarry, and be endued with power from on High, the power of the Holy Ghost(Acts 1:4-8). God Bless.
---Mrs._Morgan on 10/25/06

Are the ones left behind still christians, saved, born again. Or are you saying because of their sins they lost their salvation. I believe you can be saved but noe be part of the Bride. I have no problem with this. I'm just not completely understanding your terminology. Are the Christains that are left saved or not?
---jason on 10/25/06

Mrs. Morgan has her own def. of what a "Christian" is and she refuses to back down from using that word to describe both the saved (who are Christians) and the unsaved (who call themselves Chrisitans).

Further to this, her words indicate that she does not believe a person is a Christian unless they have bee "baptized in the Holy Spirit".

Mrs. Morgan, my definition of "Christian" is those who are saved, not everyone who calls themselves Christian which is what you are referring to. All Christians (my def.) 'have' the Holy Ghost, but to varying amounts. But it is not true that only those FILLED with the Holy Ghost (though it's a wonderful thing) will enter heaven. What does it mean to be FILLED with the Holy Ghost? Look at Paul, Peter, Stephen, etc. It brings complete transformation plus gifts and manifestations of His power.
---Okebaram on 10/25/06

jason, (I.)You say you need more clarification? What clarification do you need? God's Word is clear on this. Most Christians are lukewarm, some completely cold(having none of God in them)no matter how many Scriptures they can memorize, they still have only "a form"( it's not going to work). Do you think a Christian who is gossiping, or smoking , holding grudges,social drinking, lying, fussing, cussing,etc. at the time of the Rapture will go up? .....
---Mrs._Morgan on 10/25/06

jason, (II.)Do you think that a Christian who says that Jesus was 100% man(with no divine Blood) which is denying the very Deity of Christ, the Virgin Birth, will go up? Most Christian's feel that being blameless and holy isn't necessary,they can't distinguish self-righteousness from God righteousness, because the Truth isn't working in them( the wisdom of the Holy Spirit says that those kinds of reasoning is from the Anti-Christ)....
---Mrs._Morgan on 10/25/06

Jason, (III.)Only the divine Blood of Jesus, and the Holy Spirit can prepare a person for the Rapture. People must be washed in the Blood of Jesus, then continue in His Truth(allowing His Blood to continue to flow in their life) go on to receive the Real Holy Ghost Baptism(as Jesus commanded) and yield to Him(the Holy Ghost) at all times, then they will be ready, Jesus is only coming for His obedient bride, the Glorious Church(Eph.5:27).

Kay, (I.)The Rapture is almost here, people will see for themselves soon. God's Truth is a mystery to most, but that is not Gods fault, but their own, this is a common problem with mankind.

---Mrs._Morgan on 10/17/06

Mrs Morgan, your doctrine is unbiblical. All believers have the indwelling of the Spirit, according to Scripture. Also, no where in the Bible does it say that Christians will have to endure God's wrath on mankind (Tribulation Period).
---Kay on 10/17/06

Even if we don't understand all the mechanics behind the indwelling/baptism of the Holy Spirit, can't we trust Christ in faith, asking our Father for all good things, that the truth may be revealed in us and that we could be counted worthy to escape the great tribulation? Much study is weariness to the flesh, but the simplicity of it all is in faith in God. Doesn't this have some importance in what we don't always understand? (Lean not on your own understanding, but acknowledge God in all your ways).

Sue kathr is wrong. The fullness of the riches in Christ Jesus, even those, will require you to take possession. Salvation is the simplest part to receive. Read Matt 11:12.
Kathr, I know you gave your honest input, I hope you don't take this personal.
Sue, Keep persevering in prayer and faith for the Holy Ghost. if there is anything that is holding you back from receiving Him, the Lord will expose it to you as you do so. No answer on this blog may give you the solution. God bless.

When we become Christians, The Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell within. To say differently is to separate the trinity into 3 deities. That is cultish. We are hidden with God In Christ Jesus. Colossians 3.
The Holy Spirit is God.
One Call does it all! Haven't you heard that commercial before. How much more God.
It's God who works in you, Christ who lives in you. The Holy Spirit never speaks of Himself, but brings you to the Father through His Son Jesus Christ.

First you say you do not believe in a partial rapture now you state catagoricaly: "Christian's without the Holy Ghost on the inside, will not be changed,they will have to endure the Tribulation Period."
