Just because we ‘have’ The Holy Spirit of G-d does not mean we live by The Holy Spirit of G-d.
To CHOOSE to live otherwise, as a nominal ‘believer’, is to live according to the ‘lamp of the wicked’. The ‘lamp of the wicked’ also has seven (complete/filled) manifestations. You will find these in The Book of Mishlei (Proverbs). Are these manifest in you at this point?
It will either be our resistance or submission to the Holy One that determines our progression along The Way of LIFE, or along a path HE never intended for His Image-bearers. HE instructs us to ‘CHOOSE LIFE’ at all times. This is what it means to ‘walk in The Spirit’.
Don’t be tricked by the darkness. LIVE IN THE LIGHT OF HIS BLESSING=LIFE!
Where there’s a COMMAND, there’s a BLESSING OF ABUNDANT LIFE that is ‘coming down’. Psalm 133 (one of many Scriptures) reveals that ‘The Place of YACHAD’ (UNITY in His Spirit) is where HE COMMANDS HIS BLESSING, HIS ABUNDANT LIFE!
Much of our plight is self-inflicted because we are RESISTING the HOLY SPIRIT of GOODNESS.
If we could more fully comprehend that G-d wants something FOR US (as opposed to something ‘from’ us), we would quit RESISTING and BEGIN RECEIVING.
This is exactly WHY the COMMAND to ‘love ADONAI ELOHEINU with our ENTIRE MIND’ (b’kol–levavkha lev=mind/heart) in Deuteronomy 6:4-9 comes FIRST.
Only through our SANCTIFIED UNDERSTANDING will we KNOW HIS GREAT LOVE and decide TO AGREE that what HE wants is ‘good, satisfying, and able to succeed’ (Romans 12:1-2).
Yeshua said concerning Himself, His Word:
‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by EVERY WORD that proceeds from the Mouth of G-d.’
‘Sanctify them in Your Truth, YOUR WORD IS TRUTH’ (John 17, the High Priestly Prayer about ONENESS IN THE FATHER).
But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
And Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone.’”
Yeshua was quoting Deuteronomy 8:3 in these passages.
Let us pay attention to ‘IT IS WRITTEN’.
It’s up to us whether we WASTE or INVEST a day HE’s made FOR us.
