The Holy Spirit's Constraining and Protective Power

      Have you discovered that there is something in you that "won't let you" connect with certain people and, with other people, you connect with instantly, without hesitation. Is this "something" the Holy Spirit's discernment, holding you back? Yes, it is His divine protection preventing us from being unequally yoked. (2 Cor. 6:14) What does His light in us have to do with the darkness of deception in some others, keeping in mind that a little leaven leavens the whole batch?
     Being spiritually distant from other people, who you may have once been close to, is part of the cost of following Him, and as time goes on, if their hearts don't turn from suppressing the truth in unrighteousness (Rom. 1:18) to loving and embracing the truth, above all fleshly desires, the distance will only get greater.
     Many today want to claim they love Jesus, and yet spurn His Word, even though Him and His Word cannot be separated.

"For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when He comes in His glory, and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels."-Luke 9:26. and as Jesus prayed to the Father for us before departing from this world, He says in John 17:17-"Sanctify them in truth; Your Word is truth." Again, He is even called by the name in Rev. 19:13-"He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God."

     This separating Christ from the written Word of God is a great deception played by satan Himself, however, if we don't love the truth, (which is Him and the written Word) but suppress it in unrighteousness, we are vulnerable to fall for every scheme of his, and will lose the protective discernment of the Lord.

     We are not to try and build bridges between ourselves and others, when the Holy Spirit in us is keeping us safe  from being infected with their dark deceptions and false doctrines, even though they may present themselves as angels of light. The only way we can be "one" with them is to compromise what we know to be the truth. What is our response to be then?

"Come out from among them and be separate," He states clearly in 2 Cor. 6:17, and then, and only then, will He be our God and we, His people and He will receive us as His sons and daughters. (2 Cor. 6:16-18.) Read it for yourself.
