Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God (21 Ways) – 2

 

How we grieve the Holy Spirit



 

The Heart of the Holy Spirit

Have you ever wondered why we call the Spirit of God Holy? You might not have noticed the word holy before the word Spirit. The Spirit of God is Holy. That is why we call Him the Holy Spirit.

Again, the Holy Spirit is Holy. He does not identify with unholy things. Wherever you see rampant evil activities, conclude that the Holy Spirit is absent in that place. There are many spirits in the world.

Some pretend to be holy. However, these spirits are not holy. We can call them “good” spirits. However, the Holy Spirit's holiness is pure. The holiness (purity) of the Holy Spirit is white as the snow.

The holiness of the Holy Spirit shines brighter than the sun. When the Holy Spirit manifests, His holiness destroys anything with an iota of evil. The Holy Spirit initiated war in the beginning (meditate on Genesis 1).

War did not break out when darkness (sin) clashed with the Heavenly Father and Christ Jesus. However, when darkness crossed the path of the Holy Spirit, war broke out in Heaven. This is one reason evil cannot reign in Heaven.

In the highest Heaven, sin has no place because of the Holy Spirit. The light emanating from the Holy Spirit is brighter than any light in and outside this world. Without the Holy Spirit, holiness will cease to exist.

The Holy Spirit reveals the nature of the Godhead (the Trinity). This is one reason the seraphims sing holy holy holy unto God Almighty. Without the presence of the Holy Spirit, the sun cannot stand.

The moon, stars, sun, water bodies, trees, and every living creature of God receives its strength from the Holy Spirit. Anything that lives outside the realm of the Holy Spirit is dead. This is one reason darkness dominates the Satanic kingdom.

However, in Heaven, the unquenchable light reigns. Heaven and all their spirits receive their energy from the Holy Spirit. The tress produces fruits because of the energy of the Holy Spirit. The water bodies do not dry up because of the Holy Spirit's energy.

Humankind lives at the energy of the Holy Spirit. This is one reason the body dies when the energy of the Holy Spirit departs (meditate on Genesis 2:7). Without the Holy Spirit's energy, man's soul cannot connect with the body.

Our spirit receives power (life) from the Holy Spirit. When our spirit receives energy from the Holy Spirit, our spirit transfers the energy to the senses of the soul and the body, making us connect with the holy spiritual forces.

This is one reason we can connect with the spiritual realm while operating on the earth. However, if a man’s spirit has no connection with the Holy Spirit, the desires of the soul and lustful desires of the body take charge.

This is one reason the unbelievers love sin. They enjoy the pleasure of sin because their spirit has no connection with the Holy Spirit. They have the spirit of the world. The things of the Spirit look foolish to people whose spirits are not connected to the Holy Spirit because their spirit is blind and dead.

This is one reason some people oppose things of God. They do that because the Holy Spirit has no place in them (meditate on 1 Corinthians 2:12-14, Galatians 5:16-17 and get my book, How to Walk and Live in the Spirit, for more profound revelation). The book is free on my blog.

People without the Holy Spirit often justify sin because their conscience is dead. However, people whose spirit is connected with the Holy Spirit understand God's ways. They give their heart, resources, and strength to support the things of God because the energy of the Holy Spirit flows within them.

Some people, too, have surrendered their souls and body to evil spirits. Because of that, they follow the instructions of the devil and his minions. There are many ways to detect whether the Holy Spirit or the devil is working with a vessel.

I encourage you to download and read my book, the Currencies of the Holy Spirit, for a more profound revelation. The book is free on my blog. In my previous article, I shared seven ways we grieve the Holy Spirit. Kindly check the previous article for a more profound revelation.

Knowing what grieves the Holy Spirit helps us understand how to walk and live with the Holy Spirit. In other words, we will know which bottom not to press to grieve the Holy Spirit. Grieving the Holy Spirit separates us from His influence.

For instance, if you know that playing loud music grieves your loved ones, you will not play loud music. In this way, you will not create an environment that creates conflict in the surroundings.

Sometimes, we do some things unconsciously because it has become part of us. We often do certain things because we see nothing wrong with that. Maybe you don’t like bathing in the evening.

You might think it doesn’t hurt anyone. However, your loved one might hate it. Your loved one may not complain. However, it grieves (hurts) him. If you knew that ignoring evening baths hurt your loved one, you would not do it in the first place.

This is one reason I am sharing how we hurt the Holy Spirit. As stated in the previous article, people often don’t see the Holy Spirit with their physical eyes. They are blind to the feelings of the Holy Spirit because of their weak spirit.

If you are sensitive to the Holy Spirit, you will know how and when the Holy Spirit reacts. Just as we have natural senses, our spirit also has senses. Your spiritual senses might be weak or dead; therefore, you cannot detect the Holy Spirit's grievance.

This is one reason I am sharing some attitudes that grieve the Holy Spirit. Knowing these truths will enhance your walk with the Holy Spirit. I encourage you to download and read my series of books for more profound revelation about the Holy Spirit. The books are free on my blog. Kindly share the link to this article so others can receive the knowledge that brings deliverance. Below are seven ways we grieve the Holy Spirit.

 

Seven ways we grieve the Holy Spirit

What is the meaning of Ephesians 4 30?

1. Position minded grieves the Holy Spirit

Do you care for the flock as a church and spiritual leader? The Church is like a flock of Sheep. The shepherd (pastor) cares for the sheep (church members). The shepherd does not abuse the Sheep.

However, he protects them. Are you in the Church because of your position? The Holy Spirit wants us to take care of the Sheep. He wants us to visit the Sheep. The Holy Spirit wants us to pray for the sheep.

He wants us to encourage the Sheep and feed them the Word of God (the Holy Bible). If you are in the Church because of position, think twice because the Holy Spirit is grieving. The Holy Spirit is more concerned about your care for the Church.

Analyze a flock of Sheep. You will observe that they are vulnerable. Wicked people and hostile animals can harm and kill them! God has made you the shepherd so you can protect them. The Holy Spirit is grieving if you are not covering the Sheep with prayers and visitation.

The Holy Spirit is grieving if you are not feeding the Sheep with the pure Word. The Holy Spirit is grieving if you are pastoring the Church because of what you can get from them. Repent and support the sheep from your heart because the Holy Spirit cares.

 

2. Wrong appointment grieve the Holy Spirit

Most churches operate like businesses because we have lost the leadership of the Holy Spirit. We don’t lead the Church with the principles of the world. We lead the Church with the principles of the Word. We use the Holy Scriptures as our guide (meditate on 2 Timothy 3:16-17).

Today, most pastors appoint carnal people into vital leadership position in Churches. Selecting carnal people to lead the Church is dangerous. Doing that will open the portal for unclean spirits to control the Church.

Appointing people without relationship and fellowship with the Holy Spirit into vital leadership positions harms the Church. People without knowledge of the Word (the Holy Bible) have no place in Church leadership.

It would be best to have loyal people with a strong relationship with the Holy Spirit to lead the Church. People who love Christ Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the flock, and the Word from their hearts are the ones to lead the Church.

However, appointing carnal people to lead Churches because they have money and temporal things grieves the Holy Spirit. Are you appointing unspiritual (carnal) vessels into vital leadership positions?

Think about the Sheep! Are appointing carnal people to lead the Church? The Holy Spirit grieves when you delegate authority to sensual people with no time for the Holy Spirit, the Holy Bible, the flock, and Christ Jesus.

 

3. Possessing a controlling spirit grieves the Holy Spirit

The community of the Holy Spirit is love. The Holy Spirit does not force people to do His will. We have our free will. We are not like robots programmed to do specific jobs. We are humans with desires, hopes, and philosophies.

Anytime we force people to do something out of their will, we grieve the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit leads with love. He does not lead with pressure, fear, and position. If you are the type that forces people to do something without their agreement, you grieve the Holy Spirit.

One thing I didn’t know while leading students at the tertiary institution was the love of the Holy Spirit. I started a Church with the students at the University. However, I used strict authority to lead them.

As I grew in the Lord, I learned that I must lead the Church with the love of Christ Jesus. Using fear, curses, position, and power so people will follow your instruction isn’t the way of the Holy Spirit.

It’s witchcraft! I encourage you to download and read my book, 77 Uncommon Mysteries Behind Witchcraft, for more profound revelation. Naturally, some people have a controlling (Choleric) temperament.

However, if the Holy Spirit lives in you, He will help you with that controlling nature (personality). Do not control people like toys because of your position, power, money, fame, and status.

Lead with the love of Christ Jesus. The world has its own system of leadership. However, when it comes to the Church, we operate in the love of Christ Jesus. Are you dominating people with fear, curses, anger, and worldly systems? Repent because the Holy Spirit is grieving.

 

4. Dark psychology grieves the Holy Spirit

Do you know that deception grieves the Holy Spirit? You might be ignorant that pretense saddens the Holy Spirit. As humans, we sometimes become angry when we find that the people around us are pretending.

If we can become angry because of pretense, how much is the Holy Spirit? Some people study psychology to help humankind. However, some people study psychology to manipulate others. Dark psychology uses mind games, tricks, deception, and the weakness of people to dominate others.

Some people know how to play with people’s emotions and minds. They do that to make people surrender their hearts to them. After getting their heart, they manipulate the people. Some people use dark psychology to steal people’s assets and hard-earned money.

Some people, too, act as if they support you. By the time you come to your senses, they’ve already taken advantage. I encourage you to download and read my book, the 40 Types of People and How to Live with Them, for more profound revelation.

The book is free on my blog. Using seduction, false friendliness, false weakness, fear, abusive words, anger, money, fame, fake news, and power to control others is a dark psychological trick. Some people, too, use lies, gossip, slander, confusion, and conflict to control others.

Giving false prophecies is another way of manipulation. Most often, it’s difficult to detect people who use dark psychology. However, we can detect manipulators with the gift of discernment and wisdom. If you play mind games to control others, stop it because it grieves the Holy Spirit.

 

5. Ungodly segregation and segmentation grieves the Holy Spirit

God created us (human beings) in His image and likeness. Whether the person is an African, American, European, Asian, or Australian, that vessel has the image of God. Some people relate with you based on your status.

For instance, some people do not mingle with poor people. They only connect with rich people. Some people, too, are racists. They have no time for people outside their tribes. If you fall under this category, the Holy Spirit is grieving.

The Holy Spirit is not happy with you for your ungodly segmentation and segregation. There is no way a Spirit-filled vessel will discriminate. However, people who have no dealing with the Holy Spirit devalue the creation of God.

The Holy Spirit sees human beings as souls. This is one reason God sacrificed Christ Jesus for our sins. We are too precious to the extent that Christ Jesus gave us His life so we can reconcile with the Heavenly Father and Holy Spirit.

Stop abusing innocent animals because it grieves the Holy Spirit. If you are a racist, repent because you grieve the Holy Spirit. Value human beings and innocent animals. Don’t look down or ignore people because they have not reached your status.

Both of you are alive because of the Holy Spirit's energy. If the Holy Spirit decides to take His breath (life), you will become a corpse.

I encourage you to download and read my book, the Perfect Wisdom, for more wisdom keys. The book is free on my blog. Repent and value God’s creation because we represent God on earth. Value people from your heart; the Holy Spirit will draw closer to you.

 

6. Total carnality grieves the Holy Spirit

Another seed that grieves the Holy Spirit is witchcraft. Do you know that carnality is a subset of witchcraft? I encourage you to download and read my book, 77 Uncommon Mysteries about Witchcraft, for more profound revelation.

You can request a free copy using this link. Immorality, rebelling against godly authorities, stealing, shutting doors to people in need, and using profane words grieves the Holy Spirit. Some people’s mouths are full of curses and negative words. If you are that type, repent because it grieves the Holy Spirit.

 

7. Selfishness grieves the Holy Spirit

Naturally, a vessel without the Holy Spirit only thinks about Himself. Selfish people don’t think about the welfare of others. They only think about their needs and wants. If you only think about yourself without considering others, the Holy Spirit is unhappy with you.

Consider others in your decisions. When you think about others and search for ways to help them, you become a friend of the Holy Spirit. However, you sadden the Holy Spirit if it’s only about your interest.

Maybe you have enough money and resources to help others. However, you have closed your eyes and ears to those who need your help. Doing that can make the Holy Spirit grieve. The Holy Spirit can close your gates of blessings because of your selfishness and self-interest.

Analyze selfish people. You will see that they don’t have peace. Hardly will you see selfish people doing extraordinary things that benefit the Church, business, organization, and God’s creation.

The Holy Spirit holds His gifts from selfish people because they will use them for their own benefit. Are you interested in your growth without the consideration of others? Think twice because the Holy Spirit does not condone selfish people. I will continue in the next article.
