The purpose of this article: Speaking to men-unborn!
he power of God is in operation. Some visible and some invisible. However, not in all place and in all people who claim to be serving God. When I talked about the power of God. I am referring to healing, casting out of demonic spirits, getting souls save and the unraveling of Biblical truth still unclear. The first truth to know is this. We are not living in the age of the twelve apostles.
In St John 16:13 Jesus turns the believers over to the leadership of the Holy Spirit. We are in the age of the Holy Spirit. In our age, God speaks to us by the Holy Spirit, through the written word. Now! When the people are sinning against the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit power and works in our lives is null, or limited by our limitation. When a Christians get on his or her knees, pray, and say. “Lord! Provide me a job, heal me of my sickness, provide me a mate, or give me a new car” It is the Holy Spirit that is going to give you the revelation are lead you to the people who can make all this requests of yours comes into fulfillment. Now! Can the Holy Spirit lead you? The person that has the answer, do you want to hear anything from that person? The mate that you been asking the lord for, do you want the person he has for you?
I was a member of a Church in New York. The pastor for the church was praying day after day. “Lord sent us help” “Send us a few deacons” The pastor has several bible collage train people sitting down in the congregation. In fact, the set church he is pasturing was started in a woman’s living room. I was the Bible teacher every Saturday nights and finally it broken out into a church. He was chosen to be the pastor because he is considered dignitary. However, I am not qualified to be his helper. In fact it happen to me more than one times, until the Holy Spirit told me to stop letting people walk all over me. This is one of the reasons why I keep studying until I get my Master’s and doctoral degrees. Now there is nothing I want from them. The people that the Holy Spirit provided for him to use, he will not use them because he is envious of them.
Therefore, he is grieving the Holy Spirit by grieving the people in whom the Holy Spirit dwells. It is not lack of faith why there is no healing. We have faith. It is not lack of faith why people are not getting saved. It is not lack of faith why Christians are losing jobs and cannot get jobs. We are living contrary to the written word. In addition, we are sinning against the Holy Spirit, by sinning against each other.
John 16:13 (KJV) Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. Act 7:51 O stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears! You always resist the Holy Spirit. As your fathers did, so you do.
Greek: (antipipto), fall against or pull against like a backsliding heifer that will not be led (Hosea 4:16; Hosea 11:7).
The Holy Ghost Can Be Sin Against.
Resisted (Acts 7:51)
Tempted (Acts 5:9)
2 Lied to (Acts 5:3-4)
3 4.Grieved (Ephes. 4:30)
5.Blasphemed (Matthew 12:31-32)
6.Insulted (Hebrews 6:4-6; Hebrews 10:26-29)
7.Quenched (1 Thes. 5:19)
We quench the Holy Spirit when we try to put down, side step, or step over a qualified servant of God and put a quack into their places. A few months after I received my ordination. The bishop sent me to help a pastor. The pastor told the bishop he never saw me. As times goes by a new church wanted a pastor. One of that pastor's deacon told the assemble of elders not to sent me to pastor that church because, I just moved from where I was living, and will not want to move again. Then the same deacon came back and told me what has happened, and that it is him “Shag me up” “Shag” is the Jamaican word for. “F"you up” Trying to prevent me from advancing in the ministry.
There is a spiritual covetousness in the church and among religious people, and this is the prime most reason why we do not see more of the power of God.
We have men and women in the church that are hearing from God. I have seen people that can tell you where the pain are, and pray for the pain and it leave. People who can command demons, the demons scream out and fled. People in the same churches run them out.
Psalm 106:16 (KJV) They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron the saint of the Lord.
Matthew 27:18 (KJV) For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.
Genesis 37:18-20 (KJV) And when they saw him afar off, even before he came near unto them, they conspired against him to slay him.  And they said one to another, Behold, this dreamer cometh.  Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into some pit, and we will say, Some evil beast hath devoured him: and we shall see what will become of his dreams.
Acts 7:9 (KJV) And the patriarchs, moved with envy, sold Joseph into Egypt: but God was with him,
Mark 15:10 (KJV) For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy.
8.Vexed (Psalm 78:40; Isaiah 63:10)
Acts 13:45 (KJV) But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy, and spake against those things which were spoken by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming.
Acts 17:5 (KJV) But the Jews which believed not, moved with envy, took unto them certain lewd fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city on an uproar, and assaulted the house of Jason, and sought to bring them out to the people.
Envy Will Not Cure Until We
Philip. 2:3 (KJV) Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
9.Quieted (Zech. 6:8) 10.Fellowshipped or disfellowship with Holy Spirit. (Phil. 2:1)
Rebellious children of rebellious parents of many generations. The Holy Spirit deals with rational souls and works upon the intellectual and moral faculties in order to enlighten, convince, and persuade. If man closes his mind to light, his will to reproof, his conscience to righteousness, and his emotions to his best good, then he reverts to total rebellion and must face the harvest of eternal hardness.
Spiritually Wickedness In High Place.
Ephes. 6:12 (KJV) For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
2 Chron. 7:14 (KJV) If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Eccles. 3:16 (KJV) And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.
Isaiah 59:1-2 (KJV) Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:  But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
I saw them broken up marriages, causes people to trash their faith, and spread rumors. Some even fight right there in church. Then! The people they select as dignitary are the worst ones in the congregation. If you think the church is going to use you because you are spiritual and educated, you had better think again. If you think people are going to seek you out for counsel because you are qualified you better think again.
Every writer have their own style, and ethics, I do not intentionally tries to insults my readers with my style. I pen the way I speaks, this is my style, if my reader find it offensive, I apologizes, and asks my reader to go to plan B.

Do you repent of your sins before God and Man, and do you embraces Jesus as your savior? If the answer is yes! By the power invested in me, by the Church, and by the Holy Ghost.
