In this article I'm speaking of a residue of saints that believe there must be a preliminary work of the Holy Ghost in a life before anything spiritual will come to past, whether it be salvation, sanctification, or glorification. We still believe, "Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the LORD of hosts."
Most certainly, we accept the Divine partnership, as Peter tells us, "It seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us." Most always in scripture God uses the human along with the Divine. His way is, "In the mouth of two witnesses." The Spirit being the one, and us the other. But in this narcissistic age we have sacrificed the former for the latter.If the Holy Spirit is absent then there is an absence of life.
To illustrate my point, you'll remember when Andrew found the Messiah, he immediately found his brother Peter and said, "We have found the...Christ. And he brought him to Jesus." But some time later when Jesus asked Simon who He was, his answer was, "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God." And what was Jesus' response? "Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee (Andrew had), but my Father which is in heaven." Man can relate who He is. But only God can reveal who He is."
Christianity is a Holy Ghost religion! And if we are to survive, we had better get back to it. As far as I'm concerned, "Give me that old time religion."
