Why Would Anyone Reject The Holy Spirit?

 

Why would anyone reject God. Why would anyone reject the Holy Spirit?

Jeremiah 2:12-14 Be astonished, O ye heavens, at this, and be horribly afraid, be ye very desolate, saith the LORD.  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.  Is Israel a servant? is he a homeborn slave? why is he spoiled?

Why would the children of the King of kings live below their privilege? Because they listen to ungodly counsel. That ungodly counsel tells them that the power of God is a thing of the past. Ungodly counsel says that God does not speak. It says that God does not communicate with His people, and God's people need to try to figure out the Bible using their natural minds. (Of course, those minds are at enmity with God.)

Ungodly counsel says that God does not do miracles any more. It makes up all sorts of non-scriptural stories about the gifts of the Spirit. It rejects speaking in tongues or it distorts it. It says that the order of God's church is not important. The pattern of Scripture for the church is not important.

These are broken cisterns. If we memorize Bible verses and try to store them in broken cisterns, they will do us little good. We can end up like the Hebrews who could not even see the Scripture when they looked at the Scripture. They never heard a word from God. They only saw the veil of their own flesh. We need to be led of the Spirit when we read Scripture. We have a tendency to hold to our doctrines that we keep in those cisterns. We hold on so tightly that God can't teach us or lead us. We can become as unwilling as the Hebrew children were. But God says, "There's more."
