What are 'you attracting???

What Are You Attracting?

And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.” John 12:32

 

I recently heard about a young man who has implanted a small magnet into his finger.  He states that this implant gives him the ability to feel electrical currents that are undetectable to the naked eye but ever present. He is very brilliant and attributes his ability to obtain superior knowledge to the energy which is produced from this implanted magnet.

 

Of course, my mind immediately began to compare his implant with the “implant” that we who are believers in Christ have.  The more I heard about the details and effects of those magnetic implants that many people are getting – the more I began to relate them to OUR Spiritual “implant”.

 

Since you, as a believer, have the Holy Spirit living and abiding – “implanted” within you – what are you permitting His power that dwells within you to attract?  Think about it for a minute.  Unlike the magnet’s power which is uncontrollable – we are in complete control of our implant’s ability to effectively function. 

 

Are you permitting the power of the Holy Ghost to attract to you those who could really benefit from your experiences and your love for Him?  Are you attracting those who can assist you and increase you in some fashion; instead of decreasing or attempting to diminish who you are?  Also, have you attracted the attention of the enemy?  Does he regret when you arrive on a scene and stand in wonder of what you are permitting the power of the Holy Ghost in you to do against his kingdom?

 

The question is not if, but what.  We are all attracting something.  However, we must make certain that we are allowing our “ magnetic energies”  to be governed and directed by the Word of God.

 

Colossians 3:16a tells us to let the word of God dwell richly within us.  When we apply this notion we will be certain that we are attracting only what will be beneficial to the kingdom of God….as well as to bring destruction to every diabolical plot, plan and scheme.

 

Some of the synonyms for the word attract are: appeal, fascinate, draw, invite, to catch the attention of, exert a pull on and to be the magnet for. 

 

So again I ask the question, “What are you attracting”?  Consider those in your inner circle, those with whom you fellowship, your business and personal relationships.  What are you attracting?  The power of the Holy Ghost that dwells within us have made available to us an inexhaustible 

magnetic current.  This current has given to us the ability to have the identical effectiveness that Christ had! (With an even greater magnitude!) I challenge you to permit your magnetism to be directed solely by the power of the Holy Ghost. 

 

It’s time that we make our realizations more personal.  I need to remember that in this season God needs to use ME as never before.  Therefore, I must begin to focus more on what I am attracting to make certain that what I am attracting is permitting me to be a total asset to the Kingdom of God. 

 

I’m reminded of the lyrics of an old hymn entitled, “Lift Him Up”.  If we lift up Jesus, then the magnetic power of the Holy Ghost that’s within us, will be used to draw people unto the Father!

 

 

 

Lift Him Up

(Johnson Oatman, Jr., 1903)

 

  1. How to reach the masses, men of every birth, For an answer, Jesus gave the key:
    “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, Will draw all men unto Me.”
    • Refrain:  Lift Him up, lift Him up;
                      Still He speaks from eternity: “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth,
                      Will draw all men unto Me.”
  2. Oh! the world is hungry for the Living Bread, Lift the Savior up for them to see;
    Trust Him, and do not doubt the words that He said, “I’ll draw all men unto Me.”
  3. Don’t exalt the preacher, don’t exalt the pew, Preach the Gospel simple, full, and free;
    Prove Him and you will find that promise is true, “I’ll draw all men unto Me.”
  4. Lift Him up by living as a Christian ought, Let the world in you the Savior see;
    Then men will gladly follow Him Who once taught, “I’ll draw all men unto Me.”

 

I wonder “WHO” will help me lift Jesus??????  (You know that you remember this part!!!)

  • Oh my goodness this was so inpirirng this is one the things that I include in my prayers. I remind Him that he said if we lift Him up He would draw. To be used by God or satan that is the challenge of this message and I have to requote what was said by the writer that really stuck out. 

    Also, have you attracted the attention of the enemy?  Does he regret when you arrive on a scene and stand in wonder of what you are permitting the power of the Holy Ghost in you to do against his kingdom?

     Wow does he regret when you arrive on th escene. Our fruit has to be ripe and ready for the masses to enjoy at all times. I swear this pricked me to the core and remeinded me why my response is more imporant then what is happeneing to me in the moment. 

  • Enjoyed  this reading , and as I sit in think about it I would say that I attract the single young mothers that needs encouragement, someone to let them know that if they give their lives to God and believe and trust in him, they can and will survive, I also attract those that need healing, that want you to stand in agreement that God is a healer and also those that just need someone to tell them that Our God is Everything we need......Glory be to God .....

  • What a great read. What am I attracting? I am attract men who need to be delivered from the darkness of the streets. I attract people who are hurting and are looking for a way out and the way out is Jesus. I attract people who are looking to fill that void.

  • To God be the glory!!!!

  • Amen!

  • THIS IS SOMETHING WE AS BELIEVERS SHOULD STOP AND THINK ABOUT. A TREE IS KNOWN BY THE FRUIT THAT IT BEARS. WE MUST SELF EXAM TO SEE WHAT WE ARE DRAWING TO OURSELVES. THIS IS A VERY THOUGHT PROVOKING ARTICLE. WE MUST TRULY HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT IMPLANTED IN US SO THAT HE WILL LEAD US AND GUIDE US TO PEOPLE, PLACES, AND THINGS THAT HE MAY B GLORIFIED IN ALL WE SET OUT TO DO

  • AMEN, AMEN & AMEN! My God! How to reach the masses? Allow the Lord to draw them. He will "implant" the Holy Spirit within me so that men, women and children will be drawn unto me to teach, preach to and equip them for Kingdom work.

    If we are "implanted" with the Holy Spirit, then we must be careful of what we speak and do while on this journey. Our mouths can get us into so much trouble. In reading this passage, the following scripture came to mind (Matthew 12:34 - 37 AMP):

    34 You brood of vipers, how can you speak good things when you are evil? For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart. 35 The good man, from his [inner] good treasure, brings out good things; and the evil man, from his [inner] evil treasure, brings out evil things. 36 But I tell you, on the day of judgment people will have to give an accounting for every careless or useless word they speak. 37 For by your words [reflecting your spiritual condition] you will be justified and acquitted of the guilt of sin; and by your words [rejecting Me] you will be condemned and sentenced.”

    If we speak unkind and destructive words with the "implanted" breath, then we will attract those who speak in the like manner. I declare and decree that we WILL lift our "implanted" breath (voices) to give HIM Glory and to move by HIS SPIRIT to carry out the MANDATE that HE has for us. We must be careful of what we say and do AND be careful of the "signals" that we give off as they may attract that which is NOT of Christ.

    To God be the Glory for this POWERFUL teaching! We will take care of that which HE has given us to up build the Kingdom.

  • Wow very powerful reading and Who am I attracting? As I sat and pondered on this for a moment I see that I attract broken, torn apart, angered, low self-esteem, in trouble teenagers and young adults. I am grateful for the experiences in my life that allowed the Holy Spirit to be an electrical implanted spirit in my life that attracts those who are seeking and need him.
