the spirit of holiness

The manifestation of  THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, even tongue speaking  or Salvation evangelism  are not an an acceptable alternative for the spirit of holiness now as well… as too many even Pentecostals falsely believe..
   
Now according to some persons in the last many centuries there have been many different Christian religious movements, amongst them the separate holiness movement which today is not as prominent or influential as it has been in times past.. the holiness, sanctification movement initially is more associated with old time Methodists and the older Pentecostals rather than the newer ones, but it is still associated with the present Catholic Christian charismatic renewal movement..
  
1: Whereas the Pentecostal Movement was for the most part a separate movement outside the mainline denominations, the Second Wave or Charismatic Movement,   Second Wave 1960- 1982 was very much a mainstreaming of Pentecostal theology. The Charismatic Movement differs from old line Pentecostalism in several significant ways including a rejection of the necessity of speaking in tongues as a sign of the baptism of the Spirit. However tongues speaking does remain a very important element in most Charismatic Pentecostal circles.
 
 “Two popes have acknowledged the Catholic charismatic movement: Pope Paul VI and Pope John Paul II. Pope John Paul II stated that the movement was integral to the renewal of the entire Catholic Church. Pope John Paul II (as well as then Cardinal Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI) acknowledged good aspects of the movement while urging caution, pointing out members must maintain their link to the Catholic Church
 
“Pope John Paul II situates the whole programme of Christian activity for the Third Millennium (and therefore of the Renewal too) in the context of our call to holiness.  “First of all, I have no hesitation in saying that all pastoral initiatives must be set in relation to holiness… Once the Great Jubilee is over, we resume our normal path, but knowing that stressing holiness remains more than ever an urgent pastoral task… The objective gift of holiness is offered to all the baptised. But the gift in turn becomes a task, which must shape the whole of Christian life: ‘This is the will of God, your sanctification’  (1Thes.4:3)”.  The Pope goes on to declare, “Since Baptism is a true entry into the holiness of God, it would be a contradiction to settle for a life of mediocrity, marked by a minimalist ethic and a shallow religiosity… The time has come to re-propose wholeheartedly to everyone this high standard of ordinary Christian living: the whole life of the Christian community and of Christian families must lead in this direction”. In other words, holiness, in the power of the Spirit, is intimately linked with our bearing abundant or more fruit.  To many Christians in today’s world, Paul’s testimony to being ‘crucified with Christ’ becomes almost nonsensical. Jesus’ call to forsake everything, to ‘hate one’s own life also’ (Lk.14:26), and his charge that he who would save his life must lose it (Mk. 8:35-36) simply do not make sense to people who live by this vision of the good life. But we must remember that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Jesus, and he always directs us to the Crucified One and thus to the Way of the Cross. The Spirit forms in us the character traits to follow that way. The Spirit implants in our hearts the strength to follow the way of weakness, the power to receive and care for the powerless, the peace to endure and absorb hostility”. (Remember the example of the Saints, Francis of Assisi, Ignatius of Loyola, Teresa of Avila, Don Bosco, Maximilian Kolbe, etc., and Mother Teresa as well!) The   Charismatic Renewal: A New Pentecost?  St.Paul also teaches about the need for God’s People in every generation to witness to this “new life” (by showing they have changed from a worldly to a holy lifestyle):”  http://www.holyspiritinteractive.net/columns/fiomascarenhas/scripturallyspeaking/22.asp
 
2: The doctrine of Spirit baptism as a second work of grace supposedly to some grew directly from the  soil of the second-blessing  protestant “holiness” sanctification movement of the nineteenth century. Many holiness teachers in the eighteenth century rejected the orthodox doctrine of sanctification as a lifelong process of spiritual growth, in which sin is never completely eradicated in the believer. Methodist holiness teachers taught that Christians could receive a “second blessing” which gave the Christian in one moment “entire sanctification.” The sinful nature was supposedly completely eliminated in the believer. And, thus, the believer was perfect and sinless. The second blessing doctrine of entire sanctification, or sinless perfection, not really true “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves; and the truth is not in us” (1 Jn. 1:8).  (Eccl 7:20 KJV)  For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not. 21   Also take no heed unto all words that are spoken; lest thou hear thy servant curse thee: 22   For oftentimes also thine own heart knoweth that thou thyself likewise hast cursed others.
  
 3: The Holiness-Pentecostal tradition . “The majority of authors identify  Pentecostalism  father as England’s John Wesley, the founder of Methodism.  Wesley preached about the baptism of the Holy Spirit (or “second blessing”) which he claimed was an intense personal experience confronting the Christian with the presence of God.  The theological roots of Pentecostalism supposedly lie in the Holiness Movement pioneered by John Wesley (1703-1791). Wesley promoted the idea of “Christian Perfectionism” which he defined as freedom from self-will and a desire for nothing but the holy and perfect will of God. Charles Finney (1792-1875) later equated the idea of Wesley’s second work of grace with the concept of the baptism of the Spirit.  In time, Wesley’s Methodist sect became more mainstream, and Pentecostalism branched off into different areas. 
 
The original Pentecostals next supposedly took the second blessing doctrine one step further and taught the “baptism of the Spirit”   accompanied by the gift of “tongues.” as a third blessing. Although most Pentecostals eventually next had rejected the idea of entire holiness or sanctification. (2 Cor 4:7 KJV)  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God, and not of us. Instead they are  concentrating on overcoming sinful self they emphasized rather the latter rain doctrine, doing great things for God, or salvation evangelism like many evangelicals also do… and  the main stream evangelicals wrongfully tend to neglects personal  sanctification generally altogether these days.
 
The Lutheran Church charismatic renewal movement  was influenced by charismatic Episcopalians and Catholics but was also part of the wider charismatic movement, Catholic charismatic movement too, which emerged out of the Pentecostal movement, all of which flowed out of the holiness movement, pietism, and all renewal movements dating back to the early church.  In the 1960’s many Lutheran clergy and laity encountered a spiritual experience they had not known before, that is, the “baptism of the Holy Spirit.”  These people whose lives were thus changed became known as “Charismatics,” those who promote the use of the gifts of God as described in 1 Corinthians 12.
 
The Third Wave Charismatic, Pentecostal, or Signs and Wonders Movement, latter rain movement, originated supposedly in 1982 with John Wimber (1934-1997) when he left his association with the Calvary Chapels to pastor a church in Anaheim, CA, called “The Vineyard.”
 
Some professing fundamental Christians falsely do people try hard to downplay, discredit the spirit of sanctification, this holiness emphasis even today, falsely claiming they are new historical movements rather.
 
From the time of the church’s beginning, as recorded in the Book of Acts in the Bible, through out history as well,  in Methodist Holiness Movement to the Catholic Charismatic renewal in the 1960s and to the Pentecostal revival in Pensacola, Florida in the mid 1990s, the staggering growth of the Holliness, sanctifcation, Pentecostal, Charismatic movement has certainly impacted the world.
 
While all 3 of these Holiness movements, the Methodist, Pentecostal, Charismatic  religious movements bear some similarities, and they also do differ, there still clearly is a need to revive the Holiness, sanctification theology, the  need to be personally holy today by the power of the holy spirit in all churches and in all Christians too.
 
But sadly it is also true that some of  the Charismatic and the Pentecostals believers too have been led astray by their leaders, by their false down playing of the importance of obeying, following daily the  words of God himself..
 
There is no better description of the purpose of Pentecost,  than this text. (Acts 1:8 KJV)  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Since THE HOLY Spirit Baptism is a true entry into the will, and the holiness of God. The coming of the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Jesus Christ, upon us is to enable us also to live, no longer for ourselves but for Him, our Father God! The whole of the Acts of the Apostles confirms this, describing well what Pentecost meant in practice, namely, obtaining the PERSONAL inner experience of God’s love, and the outward ability to live it, to share it in  steadfast ways, to help others as well.  Our personal Salvation and Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit himself, his empowerment to do great things,  are the first indwelling and permanent Gifts that real Christians do receive. (Luke 10:20 KJV)  Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. We become “sons and daughters” of God and  a “new creation” (2 Cor. 5:17) states clearly  we become “sons and daughters of God” and “co-heirs with Jesus Christ” (Rom. 8:15-17), and are now  “transformed, daily, ongoing, degree that by degree, one can be changed into the full image of Jesus” (2 Cor 3:17 ).  It is this ongoing personal spiritual transformation by the Holy Spirit and by the word of God, which makes it possible, empowers also  for us to live non self-centered lives, doing great works in the footsteps of our God, and Elder Brother, Jesus, and so we too can  bear more good fruit, fruit which will last.  St. Paul also teaches about the need for God’s People in every generation also to personally receive,  witness, follow  to this “new born from above life”  (consciously continually changing from a worldly to a holy lifestyle): “But I say, walk by the Spirit, and do not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh; for these are opposed to each other, to prevent you from doing what you would… But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control” (Gal. 5:16,22). St. Paul points out that whereas the desires of the flesh “prevent you from doing what you would”, the word of God and indwelling Spirit, the fruit of the Spirit enables the disciples to overcome the flesh and to live unselfish lives, and so bear the good fruit, for God’s glory. (Psa 119:11 KJV)  Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. How does the spirit even accomplish all this in one’s life..  He the holy Spirit still  uses God’s words to us to change us. (Rom 10:17 KJV)  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
 
(John 15:4 KJV)  Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
5  I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
6  If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
7  If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
8  Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

One Response to the spirit of holiness

  1. Sanctification and Holiness

    While God will do his part even now related to the the issues of overcoming sin, sanctification, carrying out God’s plans, or on our being able to live a holy life we also must do our own part, cooperating with God and his word… Eph 4:24 KJV) And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. (Rom 6:19 KJV) I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness. (Luke 1:75 KJV) In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life. (Isa 35:8 KJV) And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
