(No Transcript)
Dwelling Place for God
  • Heaven is My throne, And earth is My footstool.
    Where is the house that you will build Me? But
    on this one will I look On him who is poor and
    of a contrite spirit, And who trembles at My
    word. Isaiah 611-2

Gods Ways Keeping Gods Presence
  • If I have found grace in Your sight, show me now
    Your way, that I may know You and that I may find
    grace in Your sight. If Your Presence does not
    go with us, do not bring us up from here. Exodus

Gods ways Keeping his Presence
  • Do not cast me away from Your presence, And do
    not take Your Holy Spirit from me. The sacrifices
    of God are a broken spirit, A broken and a
    contrite heart--These, O God, You will not
    despise. Psalms 5111-17

Gods Ways Keeping his presence
  • Now as He drew near, He saw the city and wept
    over it, saying, If you had known.. in this your
    day, the things that make for your peace! But now
    they are hidden from your eyes. For days will
    come upon you when your enemies will level you…
    to the ground … because you did not know the
    time of your visitation. Luke 1941-44

Quenching the Spirit
  • Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise
    prophecies. Test all things hold fast what is
    good. Abstain from every form of evil. 1Thes
  • Sources
  • Fear of Gods presence
  • Cant see if its God/fear getting involved in

Quenching the Spirit Solutions
  • Embrace His Presence - Long for it
  • Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for
    righteousness, For they shall be filled. Matthew

Quenching the Spirit Solutions
  • Be pure in heart to see God
  • Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see
    God. Matthew 58
  • Can anything good come out of Nazareth? …
    Jesus said, Behold, an Israelite, in whom is no
    deceit! Nathaniel said, How do You know me?

Quenching the Spirit Solutions
  • Jesus answered, Before Philip called you… I saw
    you. Nathaniel answered, Rabbi, You are the Son
    of God! Jesus said, Because I said to you, I
    saw you under the fig tree, do you believe?
    John 146-50

Quenching the Spirit Solutions
  • Fear of receiving a wrong spirit
  • If a son asks for bread from any father among
    you, will he give him a stone?… If you then,
    being evil, know how to give good gifts to your
    children, how much more will your heavenly Father
    give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!
    Luke 1111-13

Resisting the Spirit
  • Our fathers had the tabernacle of witness in the
    wilderness, (then) David… asked to find a
    dwelling for the God of Jacob… However, the
    Most High does not dwell in temples made with
    hands, as the prophet says Heaven is My
    throne, And earth is My footstool. What house
    will you build for Me? says the LORD, Or what is
    the place of My rest?…

Resisting the Holy Spirit
  • You stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and
    ears! You always resist the Holy Spirit as your
    fathers did. Which of the prophets did your
    fathers not persecute? And they killed those who
    foretold the coming of the Just One, of whom you
    now have become the betrayers and murderers, who
    have received the law by the direction of angels
    and have not kept it. Acts 744-53

Resisting the Spirit Problems
  • Stiff-necked stubborn, obstinate
  • Go up to a land flowing with milk and honey for
    I will not go up in your midst, lest I consume
    you on the way, for you are a stiff-necked
    people.Exodus 333
  • Uncircumcised heart hardness of heart

Overcoming Resistance
  • What does the LORD require of you, but to fear
    the LORD, to walk in all His ways and to love
    Him, to serve the LORD your God with all your
    heart and with all your soul, and to keep the
    commandments? … The LORD delighted only in
    your fathers,… and chose you above all peoples.
    Therefore circumcise the foreskin of your heart,
    and be stiff-necked no longer. Deut 1012-14

Testing the Spirit
  • All who were possessors of lands or houses sold
    them, and brought the proceeds, laid them at the
    apostles feet and they distributed to each as
    anyone had need. Barnabus having land, sold it,
    and brought the money and laid it at the
    apostles feet.

Testing the Spirit
  • But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira
    his wife, sold a possession. And he kept back
    part of the proceeds, his wife also being aware
    of it, and brought a certain part and laid it at
    the apostles feet. But Peter said, Ananias, why
    has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy
    Spirit and keep back part of the price of the
    land for yourself?

Testing the Spirit
  • While it remained, was it not your own? And
    after it was sold, was it not in your own
    control? Why have you conceived this thing in
    your heart? You have not lied to men but to
    God.… Then Peter said to her, How is it that
    you have agreed together to test the Spirit of
    the Lord? Acts 434-59

Grieving the Spirit
  • Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was
    great in the earth, and that every intent of the
    thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
    And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on
    the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. Gen

Grieving the Spirit
  • How often they provoked and grieved Him in the
    desert! Yes, again and again they tempted God,
    And limited the Holy One of Israel. They did not
    remember His power. Psalms 7840-42

Grieving the Spirit
  • When your fathers tested Me They tried Me,
    though they saw My work. For forty years I was
    grieved with that generation, And said, It is a
    people who go astray in their hearts, And they do
    not know My ways. So I swore in My wrath, They
    shall not enter My rest. Psalms 959-11

Grieving the Spirit
  • But they rebelled and grieved His Holy Spirit So
    He turned Himself against them as an enemy, And
    He fought against them. Isaiah 6310

Grieving the Spirit
  • Then He said to them, Is it lawful on the
    Sabbath to do good or to do evil, to save life or
    to kill? But they kept silent. And when He had
    looked around at them with anger, being grieved
    by the hardness of their hearts. Mark 34-5

Grieving the Spirit
  • Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth,
    but what is for edification, that it may impart
    grace to the hearers. And do not grieve the Holy
    Spirit of God… Let all bitterness, wrath, anger,
    clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you,
    with all malice. And be kind to one another,
    tenderhearted, forgiving… Eph 429-32

Sources of grieving
  • Intent of the heart is only evil
  • Tempted God by not believing his power
  • Rebellion dont know Gods ways
  • Hard hearted
  • Treating each other unkindly

Results of Grieving
  • Destruction in Noahs day
  • Not entering rest
  • Limiting what God wants to do
  • God fights against us

Grieving the Spirit Solutions
  • Deal with the rebellion and evil in our hearts
  • Deal with our unbelief
  • Dont be hard hearted to change
  • Treat others in a godly way

Being filled with the Spirit
  • Early church cried out for it
  • And when they had prayed, the place where they
    were assembled together was shaken and they were
    all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke
    the word of God with boldness. Acts 431

Being filled with the Spirit
  • Pauls instructions
  • Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one
    another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
    singing and making melody in your heart to the
    Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God
    the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
    submitting to one another in the fear of God.
    Eph 518-21

Walking with God
  • Amos 33 Can two walk together, unless they are
  • Galatians 525 If we live in the Spirit, let us
    also walk in the Spirit.
