How does the Holy Spirit change the inner man? (A) Conviction of sin, availability of righteousness and judgement. People cannot change their lives unless there is a conviction by the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit is in you, you will know which battles to fight. God will fight for you. When the Holy Spirit is in you: 1. We find true repentance 2. The old life loses its grip 3. Guilt and condemnation are removed (B) The Holy Spirit guides us to all truth. The truth is the word of God. Through the word of God: 1. Deception is broken 2. The Believer is set free 3. The believer enters into divine living
When we have a new experience with God: 1. We will have access to the things that we were not able to access before 2. We will be able to control the things that we were unable to control before, for example bad habits, rebellious children. The devil targets first born's because he knows that if they succeed they pave a way for the ones that come after them. Be the first born in your family (being the first in your family to do things e.g. get married, education)
A New experience is the capacity of an issue to be solved without the conventional way. The Holy Spirit will carry you to a new experience - be ready to be covered by the Holy Spirit like Mary (mother of Jesus). Never stop to confess because of the past/yesterday experiences. People have different experiences: your experience is not mine.
The Holy Spirit is the presence of God in our lives, which propels us to our destinies and introduces us to our capabilities. It is through Him that we align with our purpose in God. We can thus only go as far as we allow Him to take us. Through our level of sacrifice and obedience to God, He can mould us to becoming new people to advance the kingdom. Integrity and sacrifice is a necessity to becoming the reflection of God.The voice of God is simple but powerful, that is how He leads us to and from the place of wilderness, which is why fellowship with Him is necessary.
