The Golden Comforter
“And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.”

We cannot experience the depths of intimacy with God without the Holy Spirit. All the gifts of the Spirit are only released through the Holy Spirit. The Body of Christ will have the gifts of the Holy Spirit in operation as we learn to walk with Him. There is purity of heart that the Lord wants developed in our lives. As we begin to discern the true motives of our own hearts our lives the pure gold of a pure life will become evident in us and through us. The Lord treasures a pure heart. The Holy Spirit is essential developing this purity and to our growth as believers. We need the anointing of the Holy Spirit.
Friends of God
And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
God desires friends. Moses expressed the desire that all God’s people would be prophets and that God would put His Spirit upon them. Prophets are His friends. You cannot be a true friend of God without hearing and acting upon what He has spoken to you. In our friendship with God the Holy Spirit will be our direct connect with the heart of God.
