Gathering in Christ

John 6:47
Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes I  Me has everlasting life.

Holy Spirit, salvation, and eternal life are interchangeable terms. “Holy Spirit” is the experiential name for eternal life working in human beings here and now. The only thing that makes eternal life actual is the entrance of the Holy Spirit by commitment to Jesus Christ. Our beliefs will mock us unless something comes into us from God, because nothing has any power to alter us except the incoming of the life of God. The Holy Spirit is the One who makes experientially real in us what Jesus Christ did for us.

The Holy Spirit is the deity in proceeding power who applies the atonement to our experience…. Jesus Christ came to redeem us, to put us right with God, to deliver us from the power of death, to reveal God the Father. When we receive the Holy Spirit, He will make experientially real in us all that Jesus Christ came to do… the New Testament says we must receive Him (see Luke 11:13). Are you powerless in your life? Then get at reality! Ask God for the Holy Spirit, that is, His eternal life, and you will begin to manifest in your mortal flesh the life of Jesus.
