The Journey of comfort is a warlike adventure. No compromise should be entertained in the journey of comfort. It is not okay until all comes to right standing. The Psalmist wrote: ‘Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar! My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace. I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.’ (Psalm 120:5-7).
The fact is that people are seeking for satisfaction, security and significance in the wrong place. God said, ‘For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.’ (Jeremiah 2:13)
No one else can lead you to the Comforter than the comforted and the comforted is the Comforter. The Comforter is the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is called a person and is equated with God. See Acts 5:1-4, where the Holy Spirit is identified as a person (because He can be lied to) and where lying to the Holy Spirit is equated with lying to God.
‘But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles’ feet. But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.’
The Comforter that Christ promised to send after He ascended to heaven is the Holy Spirit in all the fullness of the Godhead, making manifest the power of divine grace to all who receive and believe in Christ as a personal Lord and Saviour. There are three persons in one God: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Those who receive Christ by faith and baptized are empowered to live the new life in Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit. ———————To be continued.
