THE TREASURE WITHIN!

Jul 26, 2021

Anyone who is named by the name of the Lord must live a life of deep fellowship and communion with the Trinity.

That’s where we find our life, worth, confidence, and boldness!

We have no confidence in the flesh,…Philippians 3:3
Our sufficiency is from God,…, 2 Cor 3:5

Our confidence and sufficiency are drawn from the place of intimacy and fellowship with the Trinity.

But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him….1 Cor 6:17

We do not live the Christian life by our strength. We need to walk in a supernatural divine fellowship with the Holy Spirit.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me;…Psalms 23:4

For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”…Hebrews 13:5

It is that deep knowing that the Lord is with you that will help you go through hard times and troubles.

I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— …John 14:16

God knew that we are weak so He gave us a helper to see us through this Christian life. We need to actively benefit from the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is a gentleman. It will take passion, and a sincere inner drive to engage His help into our lives.

Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold,…Matthew 24:12

In these last days, it is only those with a strong reliance on the Holy Spirit that will be able to stand against and overcome this stone-cold wickedness.

Thus the need to practice intimacy with the Holy Spirit!.

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us…2Cor 4:7

The greatest treasure, the Holy Spirit is within us!.

“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; …He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you…John 16:12-15

The Holy Spirit is here to guide, teach, remind, and show us things to come so that we don’t end up with wounds and scars that are unnecessary. He helps us prepare for the future!.

We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. …2 Cor 4:8-10

It is the Holy Spirit within us that makes us indestructible. He preserves us from being crushed or in despair.

He gives us the inner strength and ability that are beyond what any natural man can do!. Let’s learn to draw from Him (within).

Christ through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God,…Heb 9:4

The Holy Ghost sustained the Lord Jesus through all the pain and sufferings of the cross. Jesus relied on the strength within because human strength could not endure it!.

This inner treasure (the Holy Spirit) was given to us to enable us hold out through any trials and tribulations. (John 16:33)

It is the spirit that sustains a man, not his soul, brain, or strength during times of adversity. (Prov 24:10, Prov 17:22)

It is through a man’s union with the Holy Spirit in his spirit that the strength of God is drawn.

The life of God was planted in our spirits that we may have fellowship with God through the Holy Spirit. (1 John 4:13, John 3:6-8)

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you;…I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them…Ezekiel 36:26-27

Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure…Philippians 2:12-13

The Holy Spirit is given to us to help us obey God!. We can not do it on our own. ( ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts…Zech 4:6).

It is fellowship with the Holy Spirit that enables us to walk in obedience towards God. You cannot obey God nor sustain His instructions without the Holy Spirit’s help.

Likewise, the Spirit also HELPS IN OUR WEAKNESSES. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered…Romans 8:26

It is the Holy Spirit who empowers us to live a successful Christian life. He also helps in our prayer lives.

The anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and the same anointing TEACHES you CONCERNING ALL THINGS…1 John 2:27

The Holy Ghost knows all things. He teaches us in all things, whether in career, business, or relationships.

Our advantage in life is the Holy Spirit.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me…Philippians 4:13

If we learn to tap in the treasure on the inside of us, we will have no limit. All things will be possible!

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, PASTOR BEN OCHOLA!
