All Do Not Have The Spirit

How often do we hear preachers tell crowds of people, “All of you have God’s spirit living in you?” And yes, they are talking about The Holy Spirit? This is the furthest thing from the truth. The below passages prove it:

Romans 8:9 KJV “But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.”

John 14:17 KJV “Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.”

God makes it plain how one receives The Holy Spirit:

Ephesians 1:13 KJV “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise.”

Ephesians 1:13 says after a person hears the word of truth, and believes the gospel of salvation–truly entrusting themselves and their spiritual well being to the Lord–they become sealed and filled with the Holy Spirit. Everyone has not done this. Just look around you. Most do not believe the gospel that can save them. Most show by their conduct they are on the broad road that leads to destruction:

Matthew 7:13-14 NLT “You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way. [14] But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it.”

Jesus says only a few ever find the narrow road that leads to life. That’s scary. It is wrong to tell people that we all have God’s Holy Spirit dwelling inside of us. Some even say you can activate the God (Spirit) within you through meditation, doing good deeds, learning certain prayers, etcetera. This is all witchcraft. And it reminds me of another lie: telling people that we’re all God’s children:

John 8:44 KJV “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”

1 John 3:10 KJV “In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.”

God makes it very plain who belongs to Him and who is a child of the Devil.

2 Timothy 2:19 NIV “Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.”
