The love of God has been poured into our hearts through this Spirit of God dwelling within us. We burst with ALLELUIA!

Receive the Holy Spirt

Chapter Talks

Jesus returns: he breathes the Spirit upon and within us.  The Spirit was already given but now it is given through Christ in an incarnate manner where we know he is ‘flesh of our flesh’.  We ‘know’ in our experience that ‘we move and live and have our being’ in, through and with Christ, the complete manifestation of God.  In the book of Ezekiel we hear God say: “I shall give you a new heart, and put a new spirit in you; I shall remove the heart of stone from your bodies and give you a heart of flesh instead.  I shall put my spirit in you, and make you keep my laws and sincerely respect my observances” (36:25-27).
