Please click the links below to Isaiah 63:
Yet they rebelled and grieved his Holy Spirit.
So he turned and became their enemy and he himself fought against them.
Isaiah 63: 10
This chapter is about God's future judgment on an ungodly world. "Edom" represents all those opposition forces against God. Christ's robe is pictured as "dipped in blood" as he returns to the earth to destroy the wicked in Revelation 19: 13. Isaiah describes how God's people grieved the Holy Spirit after all those miraculous acts God showed forth His might power.
My Spiritual Journal
What I receive from Jesus is: You grieve the Holy Spirit!
Have you thought of that? You grieve the Holy Spirit!
Yes, lots of time because of our sinful nature, our rebellious and our lack of faith we grieve the Holy Spirit. I have been in deep grieving the past six months seeing how the Deceiver comes in to steal and kill and destroy as describes in John 10: 10 to AMiA. I also rejoice to see so many of our brothers and sisters stand firm in this huge storm knowing that God is in total control. After all, this is just a "pruning" time and we so need "pruning"!
The keyword I received in the Winter Conference is "REVEAL"! Everything will be revealed and we will know soon what is really happening. Let us honor each others even we are walking apart for different routes but we still work for God's Kingdom! Let's not grieve the Holy Spirit anymore!
Dear Holy Spirit,
Open our eyes to see things we are not able to us and reveal to us the truth we so need. Help us to strive forward for you Kingdom's sake. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
