Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.
I find it interesting when I hear the complex prayers people devise to get someone saved. And then they have a second event to have them receive the Holy Spirit.
1 John 4:4 (KJV)
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
1 John is pretty clear. Whoever confesses... God is in them.
Holy Spirit, the third person of the trinity lives in us the moment we confess our belief. There is no other step to take. There are no classes to attend or special prayers to recite. God abides in us. And God is the Father, the son, and the Holy Spirit.
And our spirit and Holy Spirit are one unique spirit. It is the same Holy Spirit in each believer but the combination is unique to each believer.
Our spirit does not have to be trained for the Holy Spirit knows all things and was sent to teach us and to work through us to touch others.
So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh
Our soul and our carnal mind needs the teaching. As we trust our unique spirit to lead us more and more we stop depending on the carnal mind to have all the answers. We let our spirit take the lead.
