What Hinder's Me From Receiving The Gift Of The Holy Spirit?





Is There A God Appointed Time For Receiving The Baptism Of The Holy Spirit Before Which We Cannot Receive It?

Question : I have been longing to receive the anointing for years now. I have heard so many messages on the anointing and read various articles including the one on your website.

I really don't know what is the hindrance for me to receive the anointing.

One pastor who has helped thousands receive the anointing which I have also witnessed and seen told me there is a time for it and no matter what I do until that time comes I can't receive it.

I'm living a sinful life and long to live a Holy life all the time reading the Bible and being at the feet of God in prayer. I very much know that only the anointing can change my life. And after learning the wonderful aspects and deep truths about the anointing I just am desperate to receive it. I can safely say that almost 90% of Christians do not know what anointing really is. I have heard that DGS, Ps Mohan, Ezekiah Francis and Paul Yonggi Cho and so many other great men of God do just two things which is read the Bible and speak in tongues all the time which they themselves said was their secret to living such victorious or great life or success in their ministry.

I really am so confused not knowing what to do, but I'm sure it is the anointing which is the need of the hour for me.

I want to know when I will receive the anointing or what I should do or if there is someone who can be a link between me and God to get some real answer.

Finally, my message to you could be MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH longer with a desire to tell you how much I want the anointing but it might be very tedious for you to read it.

I would be really grateful to you for a reply.

Thanks in advance.

Answer : Dear Brother, Greetings to you in Jesus name! Praise the Lord! I am glad that you wrote this important thing to get clarity and receive the gift Holy Spirit. To tell you the truth, I have been brought up in a denomination that believes that gift of the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues were not for today because the founder of this particular denomination wrongly believed that God can give love as a substitute instead of tongues which is only lower to it. So they were always skeptical to the speaking of tongues and some of the pastors in this denomination even believed that they were from the devil and discouraged all the believers to ever go for it as they might get a counterfeit of it. What a pathetic lie has blinded them all?

But we know from the Scripture that the gift of the Holy Spirit is for all believers, the power of which we can literally see and hear (Acts 2:39, 33). All those who want the genuine gift of the Holy Spirit must first get saved and then procedurally should take baptism in water immediately to conform their faith before all and be convinced of their new life in Jesus, then seek for the Holy Spirit from the Lord by their faith or through the laying on of the hands of the apostles or men of God who have faith for it (Acts 19:1-6).

Yes the Baptism of the Holy Spirit will give power over sin and will make you a witness in the place where God has called you to work for Him and bring Him glory (Acts 1:8).

The hindrance to you receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit is this lie that some pastor have told you after laying on of hands upon you that, 'there is a time for it and no matter what you do until that time comes you can't receive it". I believe that the pastor might not have practiced enough faith to release the Spirit, or you would have had some hindrance which would have prevented it. I do not blame the pastor alone for it, but the people who believe the Bible lack clarity to audaciously claim this precious gift as theirs by faith to see the manifestation of the truth of the Bible in their lives mostly.

See there is no where God has told us to wait to receive the Holy Spirit after Pentecost but only before it, because the appointed time of God had not come before the day of Pentecost in which God appointed to pour out His Spirit i.e. on the 50th day after Jesus' resurrection (Acts 1:13-14), but once Pentecost happened God promised to "pour out [His] Spirit on all flesh" and do not forget to remember that you are also included in it (Acts 2:17, a). Praise the Lord!

The Bible says that there is no partiality with God (Rom 2:11), in other words as much as God poured out His Spirit upon Bro. DGS, Ps. Mohan, Aps. Ezekiah Francis and Ps. Paul Yonggi Cho and so many other great men of God, that same way He desires to pour out His Spirit on you with the external evidence of speaking in new tongues. Do you believe this? Say, 'Amen!'

Then Jesus says in Luke 11th Chapter to ask for the gift of the Holy Spirit from our Heavenly Father who is more than willing to provide you with this if you ask Him in faith, when you ask in faith our heavenly Father has promised that he will not give a counterfeit evil spirit of idolatrous stone, poisonous serpent or torturous scorpion (Luke 11:9-13).

To pray is to pray in faith, if we will pray in faith we will receive what we have asked for in faith (James 1:4-8). When you ask for the gift of the Holy Spirit, believe that you will definitely receive it because God is a good Father and He will not withhold anything good from you (Mark 11:24), when you believe this truth it will make you receive this gift before even you can realize it. Make sure that you have forgiven everyone in the past and present, so that you can operate in such a present tense faith (Mark 11:25-26). Every time someone is not able to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit it is because of hidden religious pride, fear of receiving counterfeit, unbelief because of wrongly waiting passively until some good day comes, etc...all these are hindrance to receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Paul asked the Church of Galatia, "2 This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?" (Gal 3:2-3). In other words, Paul was telling that no matter how much they work out themselves from so called spirituality to super spirituality by keeping the law, they cannot receive the Spirit by acting like it is by their own effort that they are going to get, but rather by simply believing the promises of God and holding on to it, God freely gives His Spirit as they hear the Word of God and learn to appropriate it by faith alone that increases as they keep hearing the Word of God (Rom 10:17).

Paul also clearly states that "13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”), 14 that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith." (Gal 3:13-14). Christ was cursed so that you could get the promise of the Spirit through faith like Abraham, do you believe this? Say, AMEN!

Do not look for the supernatural and miss naturally to believe and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit in a simple way. God is so desperate to give His anointing of the Holy Spirit than you are desperate to receive it. Say, AMEN!

Read My Testimony of how I received it by faith from God : "SPIRITUAL COKE REFRESHMENT For The Soul AVAILABLE!" and "Are You Thirsty For More of God?" Now believe that God wants to fill you and privately go lift up your hands to God in full surrender and say that by faith I want to receive the Holy Spirit O God, My Father (1 Tim 2:8)....

KEEP THESE 5 POINTS IN YOUR MIND TO RENEW YOUR MIND AND SUBMIT TO GOD YOUR BODY AS A LIVING SACRIFICE (Rom 12:1-2).

1) God who has given His only Son to save you, will He not give you this most wonderful gift (Rom 8:32)? Say it out loud, 'God desires now to give me this most precious gift of the Holy Spirit!' Know one thing for sure, God desires to give you the gift of the Holy Spirit more than you want to receive it.

2) It is your own doubt that have hindered you from receiving this precious gift of the Holy Spirit (James 1:6-7). Say it out loud, ' Lord Jesus, You have never told me to wait until any so called appointed time to receive this gift, but rather have told that all who thirst now to actually come to you to receive it, I realize that you are my baptizer and I receive it by faith (Matt 3:11; Luke 3:16), as you promised me that rivers of living water will flow out of me (John 7:37-38). Amen!'

3) You are the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor 6:19), but this temple body of yours needs to be filled to the full and overflowing, and it will be filled because God has promised that this gift is for you, your children and all those who are far off, as many as will be saved (Acts 2:39). Say it out loud, 'Dear Lord, the gift of the Holy Spirit is for me and you want to fill me with your glory as your filled the temple of Solomon which he built with hands so that no one was able to stand before your glory and were pushed supernaturally to fall back (2 Chron 5:14; 7:2; 8:10-11). I believe you are now filling my life with heavens glory'

4) God is not a partial God to give someone else his gift and not you who is his child, all are equally valuable in His sight (Acts 10:34). Say it out loud, 'O Lord Jesus, you are not a partial God to give men and women of God this precious gift of the Holy Spirit and not me. Sorry for all the days I believed otherwise, now I receive your Spirit and clear all my intellectual reasoning to be filled your Spirit with the external evidence of speaking in tongues like it happened in the house of Cornelius where you filled everyone who believed and they spoke in tongues immediately magnifying and praising you in the supernatural language you had given (Acts 10:44-46). Amen!'

5) When you speak in tongues externally, you know for sure you are already filled with the Holy Spirit internally within (Acts 11:15-18; 10:45-46). Say it out loud, 'Lord Jesus, I do not look for the supernatural manifestation and miss the simple faith with which I can receive the Holy Spirit, I look upon you now and look within my spirit to be filled and for the Holy Spirit to give me the supernatural words to speak....[Now whatever God brings within your spirit,...by faith start speaking with your mouth....it may even just be a syllable or a blabbering lips...keep speaking...now....I believe you are able to look to the Lord in faith now and speak more as He gives more words (Acts 2:4)....! Seek the Lord and He will fill you more and more as you continue speaking in tongues (Jer 29:13).] Hallelujah!!!! Praise the Lord!!!'

To read the Bible and speak in tongues all the time is really the secret to all testimonies of victorious and great life of success in the ministry of many mighty apostolic men and women of God (Acts 6:4). I will be praying to the Lord so that His Spirit will come upon you in power and help you be a witness to many in the coming days.

Much Blessings.....
