The Fruit of the Spirit manifested by the Salvation Ministry of God the Holy Spirit at the moment of Salvation.

ROM 9:22-24, What if God, although willing to demonstrate His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction? And He did so in order that He might make known the riches of His glory upon vessels of mercy, which He prepared beforehand for glory, even us, whom He also called, not from among Jews only, but also from among Gentiles.
The NT statement double manifestation of the salvation ministry of God the Holy Spirit at the moment of salvation.
a. The Holy Spirit indwells the body of the believer at the moment of salvation to provide the divine power to offset the continued presence of the old sin nature.
b. The Holy Spirit indwells the body of the believer also as a sign of the Royal family status, which is superior to being in the family of God, as believers in past dispensations were. c. The primary objective of the indwelling of Holy Spirit is to provide divine energy or power to execute the Christian way of life.
ROM 8:29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the first-born among many brethren;
2CO 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.
2CO 3:17-18, Now the Lord is the Spirit [deity of the Holy Spirit], and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty or freedom. but we all, with unveiled face [filling of the Holy Spirit] beholding as in a mirror [the word of God or B.D.]
We look in the mirror to produce a reflection.
The glory of the Lord, or the manifestation of the Shekinah glory who indwells us.
The PPOG transforms the believer into reflected glory of our Lord Jesus Christ as the shekinah glory.
From glory to glory means from the humanity of Christ living in the PPOG to the momentum of the believer in the PPOG.
1CO 3:16, “You are the temple of God”
A temple must have the Shekinah glory as the guarantee of blessing and security.
The Holy Spirit takes our body and makes it a temple for the indwelling of Jesus Christ as the guarantee of blessing in time.
There is a conflict between the Holy Spirit and the Old Sin Nature as to who will control the soul, as per GAL 5:17-18.
You don’t have the ability to destroy the temple which God the Holy Spirit has built in your body.
Health is not the key to your spiritual life, and not the reflection of your spiritual life. Your health is based on your genetics, metabolism, allergies, environment, common sense, mental attitude, but it has nothing to do with your spiritual life.
Unfortunately today, cosmic or worldly Christianity has infiltrated the church and has subtly promoted certain ways in which man is suppose to live to please God.
Christian character is a divine production which is not to be achieved by self-effort but by the ministry of God the Holy Spirit.
Galatians 5:22-23 is the shortest life of Christ ever written, for the fruit of the Spirit is the outliving of the in-living Christ.
“Christian character is not mere moral or legal correctness but the possession and manifestation of nine graces: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance.
Peace is integrity “within” toward self. Goodness is integrity in expression toward man. Temperance is integrity in expression toward God.
Since the Holy Spirit declares that “agape” love is the greatest virtue of all in 1CO 13:13, it is reasonable that it should stand first on the list of the fruit of the Spirit.
Our MA must be cleansed and free from MAS which cause us not to concentrate and keeps us from perception, metabolization and application of Bible doctrine.
Agape loves is a MA love which manifests itself through thoughtfulness of others, good manners, being relaxed around others and avoiding the sins of the tongue.
None of us can really fake this kind of love over a period of time because God brings in all kinds of people which reveal whether our love is genuine and divine.
ROM 5:5 says that this love of God is poured out in us by means of the Holy Spirit and doctrine in the soul.
ROM 5:5, The love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
Doctrine gives integrity, concentration, the royal family honor code, spirituality, stability, which all in effect add up to genuine love.
Agape love is also unconditional. Agape love contains built-in virtue and therefore has capacity for true love in friendship, romance, marriage, and all other human interaction.
Now, you will know that God the Holy Spirit has produced this love in you when you can handle being the victim of others’ mental attitude sins.
The love that God the HS produces in our life is based entirely upon our spiritual integrity, the RFHC, the execution of the PPOG, upon consistent PMA and metabolization of BD resulting in integrity.
