Christians are “partakers” of the Holy Ghost

Did you know Christians are “Partakers of the Holy Ghost?” Yes, Christians taste the heavenly gift of right-standing with God. Christians are given a new nature that’s clean and moral. To partake in the Holy Ghost means God puts something within the heart of man that has an experience with Christ. That something is holiness of character that comes from the power of God’s Divine Grace. Yes, God puts within man a holiness of heart and conduct that fallen man cannot produce without trust in the redemptive work of Christ. That holiness of character is the outflow of Calvary in the heart and life of a believer in Christ. Men are enlightened to Christ when they hear the truth of the Gospel message.

Heb 6:4-6…For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,and who have fallen[a] away, to be brought back to repentance.

Men and women who believe and trust in the person of Christ “partake” in a holy nature produced by the Divine Grace of God.

2 Peter 1:4…that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature,

That’s why the Bible calls Christians, “Holy Brethren and partakers of the heavenly call”.

Heb 3:1…Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling,

The holy heart is received when man finds forgiveness for his sins through the death of a Saviour on the cross. The holy heart shows man’s recognition and subjection to the authority of a living Christ in the Throneroom. The holy heart is a God given nature that far outweighs the sinful nature of man because the power of God is behind it. Christ is behind the divine nature as He regenerates the soul and gives man the God given power to do right. That God given power to do right by far outweighs the power to do wrong because Christ’s holiness is behind it! Behind fallen man is a sinful nature that man inherited from the fall of Adam. Behind a saved man is the power of God that created the world, Promised a Saviour, the raised Christ from the dead! Yes, God given holiness of heart from the new nature is far greater than the unholy nature of fallen man. The Holy Spirit says so and so does the Bible!

1 John 4:4…”greater” is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

This writer advocates enlightenment to Christ by the preaching of the Gospel according to the Prophets! This writer advocates holiness and purity of heart in a religious world that does not believe Christians can live without sin! God honors heart purity and right living! Many people do not realize that Christ can provide man with enough power from salvation to live holy and right in the eyes of God. Christ is behind the clean heart! Christ is behind holy living! The Spirit of God that we partake in teaches holy living! The Bible teaches holy living! So does this writer! That’s the purpose of this Blog!

God bless you all! I love you!

To partake…
1 : to take part in or experience something
2 : to have a portion
3 : to possess or share a certain nature or attribute

About rickroehm

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord. This personal walk with the Lord I speak of turned into extensive Bible studies and later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at holy.sermon.net, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation. At Southwestern Ohio Fishing Blog I also publish favorite recipes for those who enjoy eating and cooking as much as this writer does. Thanks for sharing your time and life with this writer at the Blogs. Here's more access to my ministry and fishing Blog if you'd care to check them out further.

    Thanks, Rick, for laying it on the line and standing up for righteousness–the right standing we receive from Him through belief in what He has done for His people through the resurrection. I appreciate this exhortation.

    Praise God that it is the Holy Spirit that gives us confidence reflected in Philippians 1:6
    “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”.
    It is the Holy Spirit that sustains us from the day we invite Him into our lives till the day we die when we finish our course on this earth.
