Moth to #Flame

One of the most telling blows that the #enemy ๐Ÿ‘ฟ ever struck at the life of the #Church โ›ช๏ธ was to create in it #fear ๐Ÿ˜ฑ of the #HolySpirit๐Ÿ”ฅ. No one who mingles with #Christians โœ๏ธ in these times will #deny that such a #fear ๐Ÿ˜ฑ exists. Few there are who without #restraint will open their whole #heart ๐Ÿ’Ÿ to be #blessed #Comforter ๐Ÿ•Š. He has been and is so widely #misunderstood ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿฟโ€โ™‚๏ธ that the very mention of His #name is some #circles ยฉ๏ธis #enough to #frighten many people into #resistance ยฎ๏ธ. The #source ๐ŸŒ of this unreasoning #fear may #easily ๐Ÿคช be #traced, but it would be a #fruitless ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ“‰ #labor๐Ÿงฐ to do it #here ๐Ÿ“Œ. #Sufficient ๐Ÿ“ˆ to say that the #fear ๐Ÿ˜ฑ is #groundless โ˜๏ธ. #Perhaps perhaps we may #help to #destroy ๐ŸŒช Its #power ๐Ÿ’ช over us if we examine that #fire ๐Ÿ”ฅ that is the #symbol โ™Ž๏ธof the #Spiritโ€™s ๐Ÿ”ฅ Person ๐Ÿ•Š& #Presence ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคณ.

The #HolySpirit ๐Ÿ•Š is #first ๐Ÿฅ‡of all a #moral ๐Ÿ‘ค #flame ๐Ÿ”ฅ. It is not an #accident ๐ŸŒช of #language ๐Ÿ—ฃ that He is #called ๐Ÿคณ the #HolySpirit ๐Ÿ•Š, for whatever else the #word ๐Ÿ—ฃ #holy may mean, it dies #undoubtly #carry ๐Ÿ’ช with it the #idea โ˜๏ธ of #moral #purity ๐Ÿฃ. And the #Spirit ๐Ÿ•Š, being G-d, must be #absolutely and #infinitely ๐Ÿ” pure ๐Ÿ‘ค. With Him there are not (as with #men ๐Ÿง”) #grades ๐Ÿฅ‡ & #degrees โ„๏ธ of #holiness ๐Ÿ•Š. He is #holiness๐Ÿ•Š Itself, the #sum ๐Ÿ’น and #essence ๐Ÿ’Žof all that is #unspeakably๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿฟโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ—ฃ #pure๐Ÿ‘ค.
