15. THEN & NOW, IN REVIVAL, THERE IS A SENSE OF JOY IN JESUS FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT, MUSIC AND REJOICING FLOOD FROM OUR SOULS...
When a person is Spirit filled, the Spirit FILLS OUR LIVES WITH SONGS.
Often, I wake up in the morning with a song on my heart. I begin to sing it over in my mind, and when alone, I sing it out loud (usually in the shower, or in the car when I am alone... LOL). Often, I find there is a reason for that song, it is worship and truths that I will need for that day. It amazes me how the Holy Spirit does that.
The Holy Spirit loves music and singing. We should enjoy the melodies that He inspires. Don't sing the songs of the world, enjoy singing about Jesus.
"BE FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT, SPEAKING TO ONE ANOTHER IN PSALMS AND HYMNS AND SPIRITUAL SONGS, SINGING AND MAKING MELODY IN YOUR HEART TO THE LORD."
The Holy Spirit filled person finds that RELATIONSHIP is POSSIBLE. The often singing, the often rejoicing, the often worship and prayer in the prayer language, the desire for the ministry from the Word of God, is all evidence of the presence of the Holy Spirit within us.
The Holy Spirit is needed to unite us to Jesus. The conviction of the Spirit brings us to repentance. Jesus then forgives us, and brings us to the Father. Then we have a relationship with all three of the Trinity. Without the conviction of the Holy Spirit, we would not feel the need of repentance. The closer you are to the Holy Spirit, the more sensitive you will be to the faults, failures and sins in your life. The proud and self righteous reveal by their attitudes that they are not in tune with the voice of the Spirit.
The relationship with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit is awesome, and impossible to verbally relate. It is like the old saying... 'you have to be there'.
Some others have torments, turmoil, strife, and aggravation... but trusting in the Holy Spirit, enjoying His guidance, love, and power is beyond understanding of those who have demon spirit influence instead of Holy Spirit filling. We have a song in our hearts, if we are Holy Spirit filled.
