Release Date: November 10, 2015
The content of this book is to provide a scriptural basis for overcoming fear of the Holy Spirit. Your level of fear of the Holy Spirit can be measured by your commitment to your spirit and spiritual life. This can be measured by the amount of time spent nurturing your spirit and your knowledge of the Word of God. Your relationship with the Holy Spirit depends on you. He is willing to fulfill all the promises for you. Whatever level of spirituality you currently are at is a result of your openness to the Holy Spirit. As you reach out for more He will reach back and reveal more. By faith look at the scriptures without reservation to see what the Word says. Look at the writers of the New Testament that reached a level of spirituality that you can strive to achieve. Look to God and trust Him to guide you into all truth. Do not be afraid to follow your heart to desire more of God in your daily life. God never intended for you to receive Him as Father and Son and fear Him as the Holy Spirit.
