We’ve said quite a lot about the Dedicated Spirit [Ruach ha’Qodesh, Set Apart Spirit or ‘Holy’ Spirit] on this website. Mention of Him is all over the place on this archival website. It may alarm you that we refer to Him differently. We are simply showing you truth. Part of that truth is how scripture has been subtly manipulated by Satan and his agents. The Set Apart Spirit [Holy Spirit] is dedicated to the disciples of Messiah. He is intimately interwoven in scripture, and a Key Person in the life of each dedicated disciple. He is your Counselor and Teacher. However, some of you may still be wondering, “How do I receive the Holy Spirit?” “How do I know that He is in my life?”
Many teach that He is a Mystery, unknowable, or simply an active force for good. In the world of error that we live in, you may be unable to find others around you that accept Him or that are teaching the rightly-divided Truth of Elohim [‘God’, YHWH]. Do not be discouraged! (“Are You Rejecting YHWH’s Holy Spirit?“; “The Abomination That Causes Desolation“; “Brainwashed“)
“‘He that has My commandments and keeps them, it is that one who loves Me; and the one that loves Me shall be loved by My Father, and I shall love him and will reveal Myself to him.’ Judas said to Him, (not the Iscariot) ‘Master, what has happened that You are about to reveal Yourself to us and not at all to the world?’ Yahshua [Jesus] answered and said to him, ‘If anyone loves Me, he will keep My Word, and My Father shall love him. And We will come to him and will make a dwelling place with him. The one who does not love Me does not keep My Words. And the Word which you hear is not Mine but of the Father who sent Me. I have spoken these things to you, abiding with you; But the Redeemer, the Holy Spirit, whom my Father will send in My name will teach you everything. And He will remind you of everything that I said to you. I leave peace to you; My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be timid.'” – John 14:21-27, ISR98
Since Yahshua [Jesus] ascended, the Dedicated Spirit of Elohim has been available as Counselor to disciples of the Messiah. Scripture speaks about many false teachers and prophets that will teach in His Authority, so even if you have committed your life to Him, you may know little or nothing about the Dedicated Spirit. He assists you in being set apart to Elohim. You need to be actively turned away from your past, seeking to root out strongholds of the world from your mind and heart. Knowing what is or could be hindering you is a large part of your spiritual battle. Scripture and the Spirit are of great value to you. You change from not doing Elohim’s Will to doing what He says. You focus on scripture, of being more like Yahshua [Jesus] while He was on earth in ministry. Being immersed or baptized is a public way to show your change of heart and mind. Once you are seeking the Truth of Elohim, receiving Him as your ‘Life Counselor’ is as simple as asking. (Galatians 5:22-25; Romans 12:1-21; Ephesians 4:11-12; 1 Peter 4:10; 1 Corinthians 6:19; “Being Set Apart Makes You Aware of Sin“; “Ya Gotta Have Roots!“; “Hindered Prayer in Marriage“; “The Armor of Elohim“)
“And I say to you, Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone asking receives, and the one seeking finds, and to the one knocking, it will be opened. And who among you if he is a father, if his son asks for bread, will he give him a stone? And if he asks a fish, will he give him a snake instead of a fish? And if he should ask an egg, will he give him a scorpion? And if you who are evil, you know to give good gifts to your children, how much more your Father from Heaven will give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him.” – Luke 11:9-13, ISR98
Your Heavenly Father is looking for willing people that love Him and want to be part of His family, an heir through Yahshua [Jesus] the Messiah. (1 Corinthians 12:1-31) This is NOT about role playing in the gathering or assembly. It’s about learning to dwell in YHWH’s Spirit so that you learn about what He has for you do within His Will. It’s also about study and prayer.
“And they were all filled of the Holy Spirit, and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave ability to them to speak.” – Acts 2:4
The Dedicated Spirit of Elohim enables you to make difficult changes in your life; to bring healing in your life and the lives of others. You become new through Messiah as agape love fills you to overflowing. (Luke 24:39; Acts 1:8) You are also able to pray in a new tongue while in private to build you up spiritually. (Mark 16:15-20; 1 Corinthians 14:2-4) Get to know the Bible by reading it so that you are not led astray by the world. (Matthew 24:4) You don’t need to take an assessment test, which will say more about your personality than your gifts. Your Counselor will lead you as long as you are willing to listen. Take the time to be still, at least daily, as you study and learn to hear His voice as an active part of your daily walk on the road to life. (Colossians 3:1,10; Ephesians 4:24; 2 Corinthians 5:17)
Please shower me with your Dedicated Spirit to overflowing. I need the discernment and help that He provides. I also want to help others, and He is my Counselor that guides me whenever I need help. Help me to put all of my trust in You and Your Kingdom. Please help me to learn to depend on Him and grow in spiritual maturity. Thank you in the powerful Name of Yahshua [Jesus]. Thank you for bringing my request into reality and showing your most excellent way.
