Priority #4 (Baptism of the Holy Spirit)
Holy Spirit unites My body
Each of the seven feasts I asked Israel to observe referred to and symbolized seven of My highest priorities that I have. One of my highest priorities is to fill you with My Holy Spirit. One of the feasts that I asked Israel to observe was called the feast of Pentecost. It followed 50 days after the feast of Passover. The feast of Passover was symbolized by the separate stocks of wheat that were being waved before Me symbolizing the individual lives of the believers before Pentecost. But I had purposed to turn these individual Christians into a solid body, into a church; My body of believers.
So the day of Pentecost, 50 days later, instead of the single stocks of wheat, the wheat was ground into flour. And it was needed and made into loaves. Now on that day the feast was called the feast of Pentecost where the individual believers were all blended into one. They were all with one accord, they were all blended together. All of those individual disciples were all blended together, My body. (Acts 2:1-4)
The unity that I am bringing today is not a unity of intellect. The unity that I am creating in bringing My great body together in answer to Jesus’ prayer that you all might be one is a unity of My Spirit. When I founded My Church it was like a beautiful pool of men and women living and bathing in the love and light that I provided. But as people moved away from the center and each went his own way towards his own likings, they went into their own pastures and this pool was like a watering hole with fences running out like spokes away from it. And as a result each pasture is labeled now with what they happen to be. But today by the power of My Spirit and by My heavenly hosts, We are moving the sheep back to the pool where there are no fences.
I told Moses to take a vessel of oil and dip his finger into that vessel and put just a little tiny bit on the ear and the thumb and the toe. This indicated the person’s service, walk, thinking, mind and senses. I don’t want people putting more emphasis on the walk then the spiritual life. I then told Moses to take the rest of that oil and pour it out completely on the top of his head to the point it would run down his beard and down upon his clothes. I was revealing the emphasis that I put on the abundance, the joy, the overflowing, and the excitement. (Leviticus 14:28-29)
There’s more of the Holy Spirit for the abundant life than there is for all of these other things put together. And this abundant life is available when My blood is applied. I cleanse a person when they recognize the power of My blood, and then I open the door of heaven and make salvation available to you when your faith is in that blood. My blood makes the power of My Holy Spirit available to you.
Endeavor to keep the unity of the Spirit and the bond of peace. Put up with the faults and the quirks of other people. My love helps you to reach out and accept people. This love that I am producing is slow to lose patience, and it looks for a way to be constructive, it is not touchy, and does not account of evil. My love never knows a limit to its endurance. I am building within you the strength to push back walls, and I will enable you to go a little bit further in loving others than you thought you could go. Love is the bond of My church. It’s the highest priority in this day. Let My nature be formed in your life. (Ephesians 4:1-3, 1 Corinthians 13)
