What is the Holy Spirit?
The Holy Spirit mediates
between fears and the love of God. His function is to bridge the
gap between your fears and the love of God. Forgiveness leads to
God, through the grace that God has given the Holy Spirit, His gift
to everyone who turns to Him is Love. When you cross the bridge
that He provides he will carry your fears to the truth, to be dispelled
before the light of Gods love.
Your Holy Mind
be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new
man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
Fulfil ye my joy,
that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord,
of one mind.
Let this mind
be in you which was also in Jesus Christ.
The Bible says, “You were…created to be like God, truly righteous and holy.” That is why God gave us Christ's vision. It is the Holy Spirit's gift to us, God's alternative to the belief in sin, guilt and death. When you have achieved total relinquishment of your fears as Jesus was teaching; you will be of one mind and your vision will be that of Christ. There will be no need for sin, because sin and guilt derive themselves from fear. Fear is the belief in lack and what God creates is eternally whole. The problem you seem to have is that you are unconsciously holding onto guilt and shame and the assumption that you need to punish yourself for this act of wrong mindedness. If you truly desire God and forgiveness, you will allow The Holy Spirit to see your sins. You need not feel guilty or shameful, but take the opportunity to see that you were fearful. Another word for sin is error, or missing the mark. You miss the mark because you cannot see clearly what is your aim. Simply allow the Holy Spirit to shine the light of truth upon your darkened fears. This will give you the strength to look deeper within and to remember your holy mind.
God is not the author of fear, but of peace, as in all churches
of the saints.”
are afraid to look up on your fears, because you believe they are
real. Fear is F-false, E-evidence, A-appearing , R-real. The seeming experience of fear is painful, but as you look closer
with the Holy Spirit you will see how you have been hiding, and
your fears must be brought to the light if you are to follow the
teachings of Jesus.
Function of the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the only part of the Holy Trinity that has a symbolic function. He is also described as something "separate", apart from the Father and from the Son. Jesus himself said, "If I go I will send you another Comforter and He will abide with you". His symbolic function makes the Holy Spirit difficult to understand, because symbolism is open to different interpretations.
And Jesus knew
their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against
itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided
against itself shall not stand: And if Satan cast out Satan, he
is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?
The Holy Spirit is your Guide
in choosing. He is in the part of your mind that always speaks for
the right choice [peace], because He speaks for God. He is your
remaining communication with God, which you can interrupt but cannot
destroy. The Holy Spirit is the way in which God's Will is done
on earth as it is in Heaven. Both Heaven and earth are in
you, because the call of both is in your mind.
Would you be hostage to fear or host to God? You will accept only whom you invite. You are free to determine who shall be your guest, and how long he shall remain with you. Yet this is not real freedom, for it still depends on how you see it. The Holy Spirit is there; although He cannot help you without your invitation. And fear is nothing, whether you invite it in or not. Real freedom depends on welcoming God's love, and of your guests only the Holy Spirit is real. Know, then, Who abides with you merely by recognizing what is there already, and do not be satisfied with imaginary comforters, for the Comforter of God is in you. And with this choice you make together with the Holy Spirit you see your sinlessness, your everlasting Comforter and Friend beside you, and your way secure and clear.
The children of light cannot abide in darkness, for darkness is not in them. Do not be deceived by the dark comforters, and never let them enter the mind of God's Son, for they have no place in His temple. When you are tempted to deny Him remember that there are no other gods to place before Him, and accept His Will for you in peace. For you cannot accept it otherwise. By following the right Guide, you will learn the simplest of all lessons: By their fruits ye shall know them, And they shall know themselves.
