And He who believes in (has faith in, clings to, relies on) the Son has (now possesses) eternal life. But whoever disobeys (is unbelieving toward, refuses to trust in, disregards, is not subject to) the Son will never see (experience) life, but [instead] the wrath of God abides on Him. [God’s displeasure remains on Him; His indignation hangs over Him continually.]

– John 3:36 AMP

When we receive Christ (believe, accept Him as the Savior, the truth and the life) He gives us eternal life (everlasting life, ability to live after death), we having eternal life is we having Christ in us.

Eternal life is God’s own kind of life which He initially gave to man in the beginning, before the fall of man. Now that we have Christ, we are able to reflect Him (the light) but a point we cannot because an ingredient is still missing (The Holy Spirit).

The bible teaches us that before the fall of man, man hath this life of God, the Holy Spirit didn’t play the role then because God Himself ignite (taught Adam and his wife “Eve”) how to live the life, He himself trained them, this is also why Christ left before the Holy Spirit came in full manifestation on earth because He also taught how to live the life (Eternal life) we now have. Even though we have Christ the life of God in us, we will still be living in the flesh (the life the devil have full access to).

What the Spirit of God does is to teach us, giving us the ability to become children of God (Act 1:8), formally we were not regarded as children of God since we lost this life giving to man in the beginning. So we will still be living in flesh if we are not taught the way and those that are in flesh are not of God, they cannot please God (Romans 8:8-9). The condition to become a son/daughter of God is you having the Spirit of God together with the life of God (Eternal life) resident in you.


The Spirit of God unveils the power and ability to become children of God (The Spirit of God is the guide that will teach us how to walk in this new path, having gotten back the life we ones lost). If we brood the light God have given us through His life the devil cannot comprehend us. Just like a touch light, the devil influences us to turn off the switch (unalign our self, spirit and mind) from the connection of the Holy Spirit and the life so he can come in, gain access to subdue us, possess us and when he does (his first step is completed) he then continue to influence us to remain like that, by doing that, the Holy Spirit like a fan that is switch off gradually lives and he gains full access, control of our life making the everlasting life become deactivated, so we brood darkness by default.

“This i say then, walk in the Spirit and he shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh”

– Galatians 5:16 KJV

1. Walk in the Spirit – meaning after we now have the spirit of God in us granting us ability (right, capacity, might, efficiency) to become children of God, we need to then follow the path of the Spirit (The leading of the Spirit), we need to give our self over to the control of the Spirit.

“For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God”

– Romans 8:14 AMP

What Apostle Paul was saying here is that one evidence, one way of identifying the sons of God is that they walk in the Spirit because they are now Spirit beings (John 3:6).

2. “And ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh” – the lust of the flesh here means the ability to be drawn away from Uprightness with God. So it is not enough to say that we have the Spirit of God in us if we cannot walk in the Spirit. Having the Spirit of God in us without walking in the Spirit is just like having a charged battery in a phone without switching it on. Of what use will it be won’t it be the same as not even having a battery at all? The Holy Spirit will not force Himself on us, God (The Father, Son and Holy Spirit) respect the choice we make. We need to constantly completely surrender our mind (Soul), Spirit, body to the leading of the Holy Spirit, immediately we walk off this path the devil begins to gain access of our life.

“The Holy Spirit is not just the ability to speak in tongues, but anyone blessed with the Holy Spirit can speak in tongues”

One of the evidence of having the Holy Spirit (The first evidence) is the ability to speak in tongues (the language of Heaven). So if you say you have the Holy Spirit in you, you must be able to speak in tongues.

In Conclusion, the first step to accessing all of this is through Jesus (John 14:6) all this will remain restricted from you if you do not know the source. You need to first give your life to Christ, believe He died for your sins that through Him you can be saved (John 3:16). If you are ready to make this decision or you want to rededicate your life back to Him say this “Lord Jesus I believe in you, that you died for me, so I can be restored to Uprightness in the sight of God. Please Lord I ask that you come into my heart today, take over, I am yours and you are mine. Thank You for Saving me, Amen.” If you have done this sincerely I specially congratulate You, YOU ARE NOW SAVED!
