The presence of
our holy God seeks your permission to be the Lord of your life. When Holy Spirit draws you, you will desire to be "Born Again in Jesus Christ and to become a new creation. You ask the Holy Spirit to fill your spirit. The Holy Spirit never forces and if you desire to be alone, the Holy Spirit will leave you alone.
Hearing the Voice of the Holy Spirit: Obedience is your choice.
The Holy Spirit will begin to speak to you. There are many ways for a believer to hear the Voice of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit gives revelation knowledge in the Word of God, gives visions, prophesies, dreams, and anointed ministering of healing and deliverance to you and to others through you.
. The Holy Spirit will always speak in agreement with the Word of God--the Bible. Other spirits advise in contradiction to the Bible. Knowing the Bible totally and in context is vital to testing of the spirits.
In contract to other spirits who promise anything you desire, the Holy Spirit promises are in alignment with a holy and just God. Your bad habits begin to get cleaned up if you permit the Holy Spirit to show you how to overcome self indulgent thinking, behaviors and bad habits. Your ego begins to get smaller and presence of God begins to manifest in your life.
In contrast to a spirit possessing your mind and body with fear and torment, the Holy Spirit will give you spiritual fruit and supernatural gifts. You will have peace of mind, the ability to sleep, the ability to care for your body in a balanced way, your life becomes orderly and washed clean of bad habits.
Manifested Presence of God
Sometimes the presence of God will manifest when you worship and praise Him. The presence of God is an awesome and holy manifestation that gives spiritual satisfaction when you cannot hold one drop more of God's presence. God presence is manifested often when a believer is Baptized in the Holy Spirit.
The manifestation of God's presence includes the anointing for spiritual gifts such as healing, prophesy, tongues and interpretation of tongues.
The manifestation of God's presence can be so great that we are " in the Holy Spirit" by falling down under the powerful presence of God. (When this happens the person usually falls backward and their is a Christian assigned to be a "catcher" to be sure that the person falls comfortably to the floor.) Some people may shake or laugh with joy.
Falling under the power of God might begin a cleansing process in which you are in the presence of God and begin to cry but really do not know why at the time. As time passes, the Holy Spirit brings to your mind a experience, hurt, or way of thinking that needs to be changed.
In contract to activity of spirits, the Holy Spirit moves with gentleness and peacefulness. You can always reject these manifestations. A person who truly shows these responses to the presence of God is yielded, obedient and has a strong relationship with God.
Recently, I experienced the presence of God and my reaction was that I fell down in the presence of God. The experience was one of great peace. I felt the touch of a kind, loving, firm but gentle Father who cared for me.
Separation is an option.
You always have control. If you want to stop following God, you are allowed. God does not force you to stay.
