Jude 1:20 (Expanded Bible)
20 But [ you] ·dear friends [beloved], ·use your most holy faith to build yourselves up [or build yourselves up on the foundation of your most holy faith; C the whole body of true Christian doctrine and practice], praying ·in [in dependence on; or as directed by; or according to the will of] the Holy Spirit. 21 Keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ ·to give you [that leads to] ·life forever [eternal life].
Last night as I was praying, I said, “Lord, there are so many in pain and hurting and are crying out for peace and help but they don’t really know how to receive that help. What can I do Jesus?”
His words came through loud and clear, “Build yourself up in your most holy faith, praying the Holy Spirit.”
“Ah,” I said, “Of course.”
Jesus told his disciples and his mother, as well as the other women in their group, to tarry (wait) in Jerusalem, until they were endued (endow with some gift, quality, or faculty, to put on, to clothe) with power from on High…He was going to send another comforter (The Promise) to them.
Luke 24:48-50 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
The Holy Spirit is our comforter, our healer, our teacher, our helper, our deliverer. He is the Spirit of God!
Seek Jesus…ask Him to be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit…He is willing and ready to fill a clean vessel, a vessel that has accepted Jesus, as the only begotten son of God. The Holy Spirit comes to reveal Jesus to us and helps us walk in the spirit so we will not fulfill the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life. (Three areas Satan tempted Jesus with in the wilderness and tempt us with today.) (Read Matthew 4: 1-11. and I John 2:16.)
Believers, brothers and sisters in Christ, you’re going to need that power in your life if you’re going to survive what’s coming…
He is that same power that raised Christ from the dead; He will give you discernment and the power to live in this world so that you will not be deceived.
Ask Jesus for the infilling of the Holy Spirit…and then, build yourselves up every day in your most holy faith…praying in the Holy Spirit. Amen.
