Receive the promise of the Spirit

It is God who supplies the Spirit to you, and you receive the promise of the Spirit through faith, Galatians 3:14.

You receive the Holy Spirit through faith in Jesus Christ our Lord who has redeemed us that this blessing may also come upon you.
The Holy Spirit has already been poured out into the world. Peter said, "Therefore being exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He poured out this which you now see and hear," Acts 2:33. So He already has been poured out as a drink, and now is the right time for you to receive him. 
Who receives the Holy Spirit?
The Holy Spirit was poured out, or sent from heaven to be received by you and me who believe in the gospel of Christ and us who want to worship God in the spirit of Jesus Christ. The Father Himself promised and He has already given us His Holy Spirit.
How do you receive Him?
Since the Holy Spirit has already been poured out from heaven. He is meanwhile hovering around until you’ve received Him.
You receive the Holy Spirit through faith in Jesus Christ our Lord, "For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation," Romans 10:10. Remember, "without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him," Hebrews 11:6. Believe that God has filled you with the Holy Spirit - and trust it is the Holy Ghost he is giving you.
Now, Jesus said, "Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full," John 16:24. He said, ask anything in my name, I will do it. Now, what are you asking for? It is that you may receive or be filled with the Holy Spirit. He said, "how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!" Luke 11:13. Everyone who asks good gifts receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. So it’s up to you now to receive Him, and you receive him through faith.
How much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?
The LORD granted you your petition before you asked of Him. It’s His will to give you the Holy Spirit.
So after you’ve asked, start thanking him that He has given you the Holy Spirit. Say Father, thank you for feeling me with the Holy Spirit. 
Why do you need the Holy Spirit?
Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His, Romans 8:9. Plain truth. 
Jesus said, "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me..." Acts 1:8. 
Paul says, "But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all,” 1 Corinthians 12:7. It is that you may be given edification, exhortation and comfort, both yours and for the church. It prepares you for battle.
I said, "the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all." When you’ve been given the spirit, there will be also be a manifestation of the same, and this I choose to call the fruit of the spirit. Paul says, "Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy," 1 Corinthians 14:1. Meaning, if you are zealous for spiritual gifts, let it be for the edification of the church that you seek to excel.
There are diversities of gifts and different ministries distributed to each believer as the spirit wills; like wisdom, revelation knowledge, teaching, prophecy, faith, healings, miracles, tongues, and other fruits of the spirit too. You can express your desire for these spiritual gifts, but this remember, pursue love so that the ministry of the spirit will be more glorious.

What is the conclusion then?
To conclude, Paul said, “Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty," 2 Corinthians 3:17. There is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control prayerfulness and making melody in your heart to the Lord.

Grant, O Lord, thy protection!

Reverend LC Muzembi May the Lord keep you safe. May he  shelter, cover, shield and defend you from harm all through your life. May you visibly see that he is doing so, not hearsay. Don’t even guess, but know for children who are under the protection of their parents don't even guess, but they know that their parents are keeping them safe. " If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? " How Luke 11:13. He's already given you the Holy spirit. " How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? " Hebrews 9:14. There's protection for you in the blood of Jesus. " If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little fait

Is the day of Christ at hand?

Jesus is coming back soon, but before Christ is come, a falling away is first. "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition" 2 Thessalonians 2:1-2. It is obvious that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming soon, and that we all shall be gathered together to him, but he shall come on a day we not aware of. May the Lord please direct your heart "into the love of God, and into the patiently waiting for Christ." Waiting doesn’t mean you should stop your day to day work. Paul said, "Neither did we eat any man's bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that

Experience God's peace!

Reverend LC Muzembi  "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things" Philippians 4:8 KJV Yes my friend, stay true to the Lord, remember he is coming soon. If you do this, you will experience God's peace, and it’s peace which will keep you through this journey.  The Lord said, " Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you " John 14:27. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. And the Apostle said, " Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you " Philippians 4:9. In short, read your bible, study it through, receive its truths with open heart or the hearing of faith, acknowledge
