Tear Your Heart

When the Person Tears Their Heart and Frees Themself From All That Is Negative Within Them.

Many, at this moment, are sad that they have not yet been baptized with the Holy Spirit. They have not yet experienced the peace and joy that only He can provide. Yet, there is no need to be discouraged. On the contrary, the Kingdom of God requires effort, and only those who sacrifice their own will and heart can enter it. It’s not a matter of merit but of effort. 

“Even now,” declares the Lord, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.” (Joel 2:12)

Conversion is a change of direction. It’s not a feeling but a decision we make when using our heads. Whoever wants to receive the Holy Spirit must put himself in the position God wants, and they must return to Him. 

For this to happen, you must turn your back on friendships, social life, social media, etc. It is necessary to go exclusively towards God, that is, to walk according to His Word.

“Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the Lord your God…” (Joel 2:13)


When your heart is closed, it demands personal satisfaction. The heart wants to rejoice with the desires it carries. 

When someone hides something in their heart, they feel ashamed. They are afraid of being humiliated or judged, so they fill their hearts with resentment. Behaving like this makes it impossible to receive the Holy Spirit.

But when the person tears their heart and frees themself from all that is negative within them. Then, yes, the Spirit of the Most High can dwell in him.

Tear your heart and turn to God, no matter where you are or what you have been doing. When you do this, your life will change because the Holy Spirit will come upon you. The sooner you tear your heart, the sooner the Holy Spirit will come.
