1 Timothy 4:1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; How can this prophecy happen? Is this the warning below of how it can occur? 2 Corinthians 11:1Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me. 2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. 3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him. I would like to know how believers interpret this prophecy and this warning, because preaching to receive the Holy Spirit "again" after a sign is the same thing as preaching another Jesus, spirit, and gospel to receive as if you had not received Him yet. Is it not utter hypocrisey to receive the Holy Spirit again when He is already within you as promised for coming to and believing in Jesus Christ? If you do not believe this is applicable towards receiving the Holy Spirit "again" after a sign, then what is? What falling away from the faith is there that is happening in the churches in these latter days that fits the prophecy and the warning above? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ What further reproofs are there that one cannot receive the Holy Spirit "again" after a sign? 1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. This is the testimony that all believers had that drink of the one Spirit. There is no other drink. John 6:35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. Jesus promised that after we had been saved, there will be no more need for another filling. Colossians 2: 5 For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ. 6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: 7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. 8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. 10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: Paul says for all believers in regards to the faith that they are complete in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 4:4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. Paul says there is only one hope of our calling and thus one baptism with the Holy Spirit that comes by faith in Jesus Christ. There is no other invitation to heed to move away from your resting place in Jesus Christ. It is the fact that one feels the spirit coming over them when the real Holy Spirit is in us is proof it is not of God. 1 John 4:1Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world....4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. Doesn't that testimony produced by the supernatural phenomenon make it as though the Father did not give us the Holy Spirit the first time? What other point would Jesus say this below for? Luke 11:9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. 10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? 12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? May God help you to see that just by asking to receive the Holy Spirit again is the same thing as if making it look as though the Father did not give you the Holy Spirit the first time when you were saved by coming to and believing in Jesus Christ. It's time to repent and return to our first love, the Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, Whom is called the Bridegroom, to keep us from being seduced by spirits.
