Is The Presence Of God Abiding In Your Heart?
But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. (1 John 2:27 KJV)
The Holy Spirit abides or dwells within any person’s heart who genuinely accepts God’s free gift of salvation. Not only does He abide within, but He shutters up the doorway to his heart, not ever allowing the god of this world and his minions to enter inside.
Regenerated man’s heart has the presence of God’s Spirit abiding within him. However, In the Old Testament the Holy Spirit came and went from man’s heart according to the will of God. Nonetheless in the New Testament His Spirit comes to dwell and take up residence inside the softened and regenerated heart of man forever.
