In our experience every day, Holy Spirit will speak through our pure conscience when our mind starts to stray from the truth (potentially making our spirit defiled). Whether it’s unclean thoughts or bad prejudices that make us disappointed, worried, afraid or anxious.
John 16: 8 (NKJV) And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
1 Corinthians 2: 12 (NKJV) Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.
James 4: 5 (ERV) Do you think the Scriptures mean nothing? The Scriptures say, “The Spirit God made to live in us wants us only for himself.
Ephesians 1: 13-14 (NKJV) In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.
1 Corinthians 6: 19-20 (TLB) Haven’t you yet learned that your body is the home of the Holy Spirit God gave you, and that he lives within you? Your own body does not belong to you. For God has bought you with a great price. So use every part of your body to give glory back to God because he owns it.
How important it is that we build full awareness that ourselves and our lives are belong to the Holy Spirit. We have been redeemed and bought at a price! We belong to Holy Spirit wholly. Like property, we are a house that has been redeemed from sin, devil and death. But now Holy Spirit is the master of our house. Therefore, it is appropriate for us to listen to His voice and obey Him. Because it is an important part that we must do (as living stones). Thus the process of complete overhaul or renovation of our minds (Romans 12: 1-2) can take place quickly. So that we will become a temple of the Holy Spirit fully.
So as the temple of the Holy Spirit, our lives no longer have (no more divert or flirt with the spirits of the world) the unclean thing, negative emotion, worry, anxieties, and fear. If we detect any of things that begin to cross our mind and feeling, we have to reject, not accept it or cleanse them up from our mind and heart by focusing on the work of the Spirit and Word (meditating and speaking the Word). So that we receive various spiritual dimensions that awaken, strengthen and fill us with His divine love and bring order and harmony with the truth of God’s Word.
In principle, we must reject all things that is ‘strange’. We as the temple of the Holy Spirit must function as strongly spiritual radars, so we can recognize and distinguish accurately the various spiritual dimensions that come. Anyhow, everything that is unclean and make our emotion become negative (afraid, worried, anxious, disappointment) and everything that is opposites with Philippians 4:8 is a SIN that we have to reject! If we are passive, we as the ‘property of the Kingdom of Heaven’ will be sabotaged and tilted into the instruments of unrighteousness! That will destroy ourselves and the lives of many people!
Always remember that our lives are the TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT (love Holy Spirit with all our heart, soul and strength). Function as the TABERNACLE OF GOD (blameless and faithful to Him – Revelation 21) which flows the TRUTH, PEACE, AND ETERNAL JOY! That’s kind of life that restores the lives of many! #ILoveGod
