10 Warning Signs The Holy Spirit Has Left You[ For Sure.]

Have you ever wondered if the Holy Spirit has left you? And the signs the Holy Spirit has left you to look out for in your life if you suspect that is the case?

This is what this article will address today as many people including Christians want to know whether the Holy Spirit is still present in their life or has left them.

Without wasting much of your precious time, here are the 10 signs the Holy Spirit has left you that will clearly show that God’s Spirit is no longer present in your life.

10 Signs The Holy Spirit Has Left You.

Below are the 10 signs to look out for if you suspect and worry that the Holy Spirit may have left you so that you can do something about it.

  • No More Conviction When You Sin.
  • No Fruits Of The Spirit In Your Life.
  • Evidence Of The Works Of The Flesh.
  • Loss Of God’s Presence.
  • No Longer Interested In God’s Word.
  • No Longer Love The Truth.
  • No Longer Interested In Prayer.
  • No Desire To Fellowship With Other Believers.
  • You Will Love Sin.
  • No Desire For Spiritual Things.

1. No More Conviction When You Sin.

One of the signs that will show the Holy Spirit has left you is that the conviction you once had when you sin will no longer be there which is why you will indulge in willful sin.

This is why even when another believer in Christ tries to warn you of your sinful lifestyle, it will no longer matter to you as you will see no issue with the kind of sinful lifestyle you are living in as you will be filled in your own sinful ways (Proverbs 14:14).

It’s the Holy Spirit that is responsible for convicting us of our sins and acts as a watchman to help us not to stumble into sin but when that watchman is lost, you will have nothing to remind you that you have sinned and need repentance which is why you will continue in sin with impunity.

2. No Fruits Of The Spirit In Your Life.

Another sign that will show the Holy Spirit has left a person is that the 9 fruits of the Spirit Galatians 5:22,23 talks about will nowhere to be seen in the life of such a person or a believer who has backslidden or fallen back into sin.

Instead, the works of the flesh found in Galatians 5:19-21 are what will now manifest in your life as now a different spirit is now controlling your life that makes you walk after the sinful desires of your sinful flesh.

This will be so because the Holy Spirit that helps any believer to walk after the Spirit and not fulfil the sinful lustful desires of the flesh will no longer be there to help you do that.

3. Evidence Of The Works Of The Flesh.

The works of the flesh Galatians 5:19-21 talks about are what will now manifest if God’s Spirit is no longer present in your life to help you walk after the Spirit and not the flesh.

This is why you will now indulge in all manner of sins such as sexual immorality, drunkenness, strife, lasciviousness and so on, which you never indulged yourself in when the Holy Spirit was still present in your life.

You can only overcome the works of the flesh by the power of the Holy Ghost and not by your own strength, which is why you will find it impossible to live a godly life that’s above sin if the Holy Spirit has departed from you because of you backsliding into sin.

4. Loss Of God’s Presence.

You will also lose the presence of God in your life if the Holy Spirit is no longer present in your life because it’s God’s Spirit that is responsible for attracting God’s presence in the life of any believer.

Since God’s presence cannot dwell in the midst of sin just like the Holy Spirit, it, therefore, follows that when the Holy Spirit leaves a person due to the presence of sin in the life of that person, the Holy Spirit will leave, too.

This is why 1 Corinthians 6:19 tells us that our bodies are temples of the Holy Ghost that is why you must not defile your body with sin if you don’t want the Holy Ghost to abandon you because the Holy Ghost cannot dwell in bodies that are defiled by sin.

5. No Longer Interested In God’s Word.

A person who no longer has the Holy Spirit in them will no longer be interested in reading God’s word anymore as they will now find God’s word boring and uninteresting.

On the other hand, if the Holy Ghost is no longer present in your Christian life, you will now be interested in the mundane things of this world, which please the flesh and not God as the flesh cannot please God as Romans 8:8 wonderfully put it.

If you no longer have the Holy Spirit in you that makes one thirst and hunger for God’s word, which nourishes your soul, you will love pleasure instead which is why going to parties will now be more interesting than going to church, which you will assume it’s for old people.

6. No Longer Love The Truth.

Jesus Christ said in John 16:13 that He will send us the Spirit of truth that will help to guide us into all truth and protect every believer from the deception of false doctrines which are rampant nowadays in many churches.

But if the Holy Spirit responsible for this truth the Lord Jesus Christ talks about in the above verse that protects every believer or true Christian from falsehood is no longer in your life, you will now start finding the false teaching you abhorred appealing now.

This is why you will no longer be able to endure the sound doctrine of the bible as Paul says in 2 Timothy 4:3 as you will find the unadulterated truth of God’s word offensive now because the Holy Spirit to help you love the truth and hate falsehood is no longer present in your life.

7. No Longer Interested In Prayer.

Prayer is one of the important backbones of every Christian as prayer is what helps you fight and win spiritual battles through the pulling down of the mighty strongholds as well as your spiritual growth as a Christian.

You must remember that it’s the Holy Spirit that helps every believer pray according to God’s will as He’s the one who gives utterance (Romans 8;26,27) so that we don’t make prayers that are full of vain repetitions and vain words.

However, if the Holy Spirit is no longer in your life, prayer will no longer be attractive in your life anymore, as you will find it burdensome. If you used to pray for one hour daily, it will now be zero if you no longer have the Holy Ghost in you to energize you in prayer.

8. No Desire To Fellowship With Other Believers.

If you no longer have the Holy Spirit in your life, you will no longer desire to congregate and fellowship with other believers in Christ Jesus as you will see no benefit of doing that.

This will be because you now have a different spirit controlling you that is different from that of a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. Hebrews 10:25 tells us not to forsake that assembling of each other as believers of the same faith as it’s very beneficial to the body of Christ as a whole.

Instead, you will now prefer to associate with sinners or other backsliders who are just like you who have abandoned and forsaken their Christian faith because of the same spirit that you all have in common.

9. You Will Love Sin.

You will also love sin if the Holy Spirit to convict you of your sins is no longer present in your life. Since God’s Spirit is holy and hates sin, there is no way you are going to love to sin if the presence of the Holy Spirit is in your life.

However, if God’s Spirit is no longer in your life that the Lord Jesus Christ imparts in you when you become truly saved that makes you hate sin and love righteousness instead; you will now love sin and hate holiness as 2 Thessalonians 2:10 says.

This will be seen in the kind of sinful lifestyle you now live which is why you will now justify and defend your sinful lifestyle now which you once condemned before you backslid.

10. No Desire For Spiritual Things.

Last but not least, if the Holy Spirit has left your life, you have no desire for spiritual things or conversations about them because they will now be foolishness unto you as 1 Corinthians 2:14 wonderfully put it as natural man can’t perceive spiritual things that are spiritually discerned.

The only time you will think about church is when you are going there. You find yourself looking at your watch during worship services and sermons because you can hardly wait until they’re done.

Instead, you will now be interested in the things and pleasures of this world that pleases your flesh, which can’t even give you eternal life by the way. It is why you will rather spend time watching sports or going to parties than going to church or reading God’s word.

Conclusion.

I hope that the above 10 signs the Holy Spirit has left you will help you now examine yourself if you are still in the faith so that you can be sure that  God’s Spirit hasn’t left you due to sin or if He has, repent so that His presence can be restored into your life.

      • I know there is unforgivable sins. I was scared God left me for good because I offended him. I was so convinced. But it was a lie. So if you feel that way I encourage you. It may be a test but God will never leave you. I sought him and I felt his Holy Presence. 139:7. But it didn’t happen instantly. And it takes time to train your soul so don’t be embarrassed about your bad habits/ thoughts. Just because you make a mistake or get distracted doesn’t mean you’re no longer Gods child. It’s in your DNA that you’re a child of God. Get help and prayer from someone who truly loves the Lord. That’s what I did and when that person prayed for me I felt the Lords presence. It was a scary hopeless feeling and my mind was so full of doubt and evil I thought God left. I prayed, fasted, read my Bible, and praised him but I felt nothing. But when I got help and was prayed for I felt God. You’re Gods child. It’s a relationship. He won’t lock you out his love. He’s always waiting for you. Think of the Prodigal Son story. Think of the story where God called people from highways and byways. God is always there waiting for you. God likes doing hide and seek. And he may just enjoy you seeking him so he’s hiding but he didn’t leave. Maybe he doesn’t want you comfortable in your spiritual level he’s calling you higher. But I know it feels scary. God didn’t leave. Reach out to me if you want help.

          • Noted but you also need to pray for yourself as well so that the Lord helps you remove any sin in your life that may be responsible for the Holy Spirit’s departure in your life. God bless.

          • Hi Jacob, I just want to say firstly, we should not rely on our own feelings or understanding to tell us what God is doing. We know, sin is not of, from or a part of God, and is lawlessness, resulting in judgement and death, so we cannot excuse any sin. It cost the Lord His precious life. Yet we must also be quick minded to remember that God has an arch enemy, satan, who literally is doing everything he can to destroy your soul, attack your faith (make you choose to unbelieve without consciously knowing, thereby doubting the sure promises of God and insulting His honor and character). Satan will use scripture to condemn you and curse you, that will try press you to believe the lies. You need not.

            I’ve been struggling with the unforgivable Sin for months on end now, it is torturous. Some days I feel some of God’s grace and truly believe He is working through it all to bring me To Him, other days I am sunk into fear and despair, because I remind myself that I’ve not felt conviction from the Holy Spirit for a very long time. My heart feels hardened and its all my fault, its been my choices.

            After I was regenerated, I was so messy and careless, I did not sit down and grow any faith. Whenever I read the Bible I believed I believed it.. Only 3 years later I now know I did not. I would have the Holy Spirit convict me of sin or when I was about to sin, and would be in so much despair (through wrestling with thoughts of God not hearing me, me not being able to get close to Him, Him being far off etc).. And would give in to the sin. It just happened more frequently, the joy of the new birth slowly went away and I became more anxious and fearful, living in habitual sin. I was always sharing memes, clips, watching sermons etc but never truly believed (but was deceived into believing I did). If only I had believed I’d of seen my foolishness. Somewhere in 1 or 2 John we are told that In Him is no darkness and if we live in darkness and say we have fellowship with Him we are liars. I read this and thought I believed it, yet I was living in darkness. That is contradictive.. Now I see it and realise God’s word was showing me that I was lying, and had to truly place my faith in Him, that was my ticket out the darkness I was in.. I was living in unbelief (which is a really serious sin that was at the root of all my habitual sinning). If anyone died in a state of unbelief, they cannot be forgiven for they do not believe in the only One who can forgive then of that which condemns them to hell. This is what happened to Adam and eve, they were unbelieving, satan done it by placing doubts in their mind about the word of God. They ended up believing a lie. This is still what he is doing today.

            Forsake listening to yourself, stop trusting your own thoughts and feelings. Examine yourself biblically and believe what you read to be true without a shadow of doubt.

            Head over to this forum to see some replies to a similar issue.. There are loads of comments but if you keep reading some can be very useful.

            If we fall away from faith, then it’s impossible to be brought back. If you have faith, it is from God, not from ourselves. If we leave God then we lose faith for He is faithful, not us. When He is with us, we experience faith and can grow it.. Its a beautiful harmonious synchronisation of God sharing His faith with us, and us almost feeling like its ours.. Yet He is the author and finisher of our faith.. Notice the words here.. He is the “author”.. And “finisher” of “our” faith. It seems contradictive doesn’t it.. We know better with God that it’s not. The author of a book, like scripture, is God, yet who did He allow to write it? The faithful… The same way the faith is His, but He allows us to apply it in ourselves to grow closer to Him. Like a mother who is baking cakes, and her little 4 year old wants to help. She knows her child will slow her down, make a mess, but allows her to help, when her husband gets home, she allows the child to present the cakes to him and tells him that it was her who made them..

            There is nothing I desire more than to live in faith to the Lord. Yet I have let Him down tremendously, I rejected His tender and loving Spirit through unbelief and self righteousness. I am unworthy, and cannot do or offer anything to Him to help me.

            Yet I must also note that it’s not 100% despair, thank God for it. The enemy wants me to despair without pause and to finally die and join him. Yet there is grace and hope that peers through me, giving me some sort of hope that God is working even in such a horrible wretched man such as me.

            I wish that nobody would have to experience the grace of God in this way, to seek and clutch at the very same Spirit that I was driving away from me, while being overcome with emotive waves of feeling abandoned by God etc, is just foolish. God id was working right there in those precious moments where I unbelieved and rejected His work. It is sad that I cannot recall just how deeply I grieved Him, I just know it was horrible, terrible enough for me to believe I was lost, after having grace dawn inside of me. I can’t think of a worse person than me.

            I may be wrong, but the desire I have to be restored to the Lord, to obey Him through faith, to understand His word and to share it with the world. The desire to change and to forsake myself, I cannot see how these things can originate from me, I am death and failure. It gives me a hope that I can obey the Lord in the faith I could of grown in 3 years ago.. And truly get to know Him, and to mourn properly in His presence for the pain and sickness I forced on Him.

            The Lord is willing.. He has done immeasurably miraculous things for us all. Some thing’s just so great and so loving that by itself, hardens us by seeing just how disgusting we are to be blind or impartial, or indifferent to it. Like me with the magical work of His Spirit.

            All I know I can do, is see myself more and more as the depraved soul I am.. How helpless I am.. How evil and incapable I am. It makes me desire Him more. Confess my sins to Him, there are so many over such a long time it is difficult to have such a deep godly repentance over then, as I just feel so far from God, but at the same time, shouldn’t I? Nobody should expect that God should be waiting at the door after living the way I had.. Unbelief… Dishonoring His very character, His essence and will.

            Head to this forum, it contains much comments that might help you. Some are great comments but there are loads so take your time. – https://www.christianforums.com/threads/help-it-feels-like-the-holy-spirit-has-left-me.8096991/

            If you pray, and because are far from the Lord. Don’t sit in the dark and sulk with your sins. Truly expose them, see then as they are.. Try ponder and then scrutanize what they have cost you.. Think what it’s done to God.. Place them beside His will and His character.. You want to confront yourself (if your heart is hardened) with more and more of your frequent sins.. But not only if them alone.. This is the enemies goal. But to then think about the Lord, His word, His grace and His sacrifice for you. Make a frequent of it.. Slowly it will begin to make you truly see yourself for what you are apart from the Lord, and will over time make you seek and appreciate Him, and to
            forsake yourself.

            If you are seeking forgiveness, might it just be the Lord who is seeking to forgive you, even after all you’ve done? Think about that for a moment.. meditate on it. Let it sink in. Who are you or I, to forgive, or desire to forgive? are we wretched sinners, asides from the forgiveness in us, that is a strong point? I say not.. I say we are wretched sinners with nothing good in us, that the Lord is good.

            Did we love Christ? In fact we hated Him. Yet we love Him because He first loved us.

            If we desire to know Him. Is it not His desire for us to know Him?

            Just because we fail to define or imagine what work the Lord could be doing, does not mean work is not underway, in fact He never stops or rests unlike us.

            If you can begin to see the deeper work of God behind the veil of unbelief, hardness of heart.. You will see His glory in a new perspective. A glory that works even for the lowest of the low, for those who are so blinded by unbelief that they sobbed for Him while He was holding their hand. Its hard to imagine a greater blindness. If the Lord does not give up in us… WHO could He? Could it be believed anymore that the Lord could ever give up on anyone?

            If we live in habitual sin, its dangerous. Wilful sin, its dangerous. I, maybe you and many others know this. God is love but is a Holy judge. The scripture shows us both sides of Him and His justice and mercy. How many more days would I of went, before I had completely given over to my unbelief? How am I actually able to Not completely give over to it? If I was living in it for so long then why have I remained to this day, seeking/ desiring the Lord? Is it because whilst living at enmity with Him, while rejecting Him.. Being blind to Him, I somehow had strength of will, or of faith to hold onto Him blindly? Or is it more likely that through all of that, the Lord did not let go of me? Scripture speaks of us falling away, it speaks of the unforgivable Sin. Being unable to be renewed to repentance. If we get to the stage where we are completely taken over by our old ways, then we can get so far from the Lord that His hold on us, is treated as something else.. We notice not the hold He has in us, even if He is hanging on to us by the unforgivable Sin.

            This is a deep thing to think about. I began to truly fear when I pondered commiting the unforgivable sin, losing the Lord (who I’d already thought I’d lost and never been able to get close to) this almost awoken something in me, a little bit of faith that the Lord has so graciously kept with me, for this moment. This is the battle I am in, and it will require faith to be won. It exposed me for the last 3 years, I then knew that the faith u thought I had was false, I knew the Lord had been with me, I knew He would of heard my prayers had I believed and had faith.. All these things that had hindered me since regeneration, suddenly were seen as the lies and darkness they had always been. How did this happen? I have only my own interpretation, that the Lord.. Having no other way that I can think of, to reveal His grace, His presence to me, remained with me, and through the fear of losing Him, the faith that remained because of Him, awoken to see the darkness and depravity of myself and the lies and unbelief I had been living in.

            I couldn’t do it without faith. I couldn’t have faith without the Lord.

            If we are fallen away, there is no chance of faith, for it comes from the Lord, His Spirit. That means there is no chance of forgiveness for forgiveness cones from the Lord and we only know Him by His Spirit. There can be no repentance for the divine knowledge and guidance required for repentance comes from the Holy Spirit. This is another thing I’ve struggled with.. So in some ways I know the Lord has not gone.. Yet I feel I cannot repent properly as I’ve not been convicted, and dint feel sorry enough, I rarely cry. Yet the Lord makes it clear and makes sense of it. How can someone living so far from God, in habitual wilful sin, after so long without being in communion with the Spirit.. Receive the grief of the Spirit? We used to feel grieved because He was right with us, right by us.. But we pushed Him away, and surrounded ourselves in darkness, He cannot dwell in darkness, for He is light, beautiful life giving light. Tender light, merciful light, Holy light. We cannot weep or grieve as He does, but as we can without Him, this again should only show us how sick and depraved we are that such abominable living barely budges our hearts. This is truly our natural ways toward God. Anything moving, anything that brought that beautiful heartfelt repentance came from the Lord, His Spirit, it as Him sharing the heavenly effects of sin to the disobedient children. Do not be sunk in despair if you feel you cannot repent. It will come, it has to. If you truly seek the Lord, want to be forgiven and forsake all your own ways, repentance will happen, just don’t expect the heavenly version. Expect the depraved human kind.

            An example in my case, is this. I no longer drink alcohol which I was drinking every day almost. I was smoking cigarettes, watching porn and occasionally having sex. These were part of my habitual life of sin. This didn’t include all the pointless movies, TV shows, selfish purchases etc that filled up the rest of my time. However when this fear arose about the unforgivable Sin, and this little bit of faith arose, I instantly forsook all these things. Why? These were things that truly I thought I was in bondage again to. But it was all false, built in unbelief and lies, as soon as I had. A little bit of true faith, even though it came from a deep fear, that fear caused me to think I might of lost the Lord forever and I believed what it said… Then faith arose. True faith works repentance they are inseoersbke thus is evident by my unbelief.. If I ever repented after regeneration, why did I sink into deeper darkness and sin? Because it was not repentance through faith. The faith was missing. I was deceived thinking I believed but if I had, I wouldn’t of fell gradually into a lifestyle of sin. So it’s testimony of God’s word again that the moment I had true faith, I forsook the lifestyle. The Lord had given me understanding about my unbelief.. I am blind, and the Lord is the teacher. I am the student, I teach myself nothing but the ways of death and destruction. The Lord however knows all things that can lead us back to the narrow path so although I was not experiencing the Holy Spirit in the way I thought I should if He hadn’t left me, He was very much still at work from further away.

            I was given knowledge of my sin (unbelief, fornication, drunkenness, idolatry – placing myself in God’s position, etc)… This knowledge received in faith, along with the word of God, made me forsake them, and to seek the Lord.

            But I cannot say that its smooth or final. I still battle with it even today, I wish nobody had to experience these things and the truth is they don’t need to.

            Do not give up. Treat Him faithfully, don’t doubt Him, doubt yourself and use that doubt as motivation to seek Him. Pray, pray, pray and keep praying even when you don’t feel like you are heard. Keep praying, read the word. Don’t sink in despair for the Lord is in the light not the darkness. And He can see in the darkness but we cannot. Go to a good church, if your heart is hardened then it may be a little more difficukt, you may be anxious etc but trust me. Its better to go, and get familiar with God’s people be honest with then don’t try deceive them. Ask questions, make friends, listen intently to sermons, keep going don’t give up after one or two night through fear, instead persevere, the Lord can use that but He can’t do much if we give up! Reach out to chat if you want

          • What a wonderful testimony. Indeed our feelings can deceive us and we must only rely on God’s word to know if we are saved or not.

          • Just truly repent and give your heart fully ot God and all will be well and stay away from sin as far as possible. God bless.

        • Thank you for your share Cassara. I agree with you 100 %. During my struggle with this same trial/feeling that God left me, including the Holy spirit, I have always fallen back on God’s promise to never leave me or forsake me…The fact that the Holy Spirit will NEVER leave a believer is also seen in Ephesians 1:13-14 where believers are said to be “sealed” with the Holy Spirit, “who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.”
          So yes, I agree with you. But mostly I rely on and believe in God’s promise as seen in Ephesians 1:13-14.
          God bless you and yours!

          Reply
          • My understanding is the.Spirit being referred as a “seal” is simply a spiritual marking that identifies that the person belongs to Christ now but doesn’t mean the Spirit can never depart. If someone can be blotted out of the Book of Life, removed from the Vine (no fruit/stop abiding) choked out by sin (thorns) fall away during suffering (stony soil/no root of maturity) or stop repenting/renewing the mind and walk according to the flesh (life of disobedience/rebellion against God) then all of these things will lead to spiritual death/apostasy/Spirit departing. Sin is what caused the fall and required Christ’s sacrifice. God hates sin so much He punished Christ because of our sin, and saved us from sin so that we would live a new life in Him in righteousness and holiness. His grace cost His life and it costs the believers life in that they need to die to sin and live for Christ. The Spirit is given to regenerate the inner man (heart) with new desires, will, mind of Christ, affections, gifts etc and to help the believer overcome sin and temptations and trials and endure until the end and lead a holy and righteous life on the inside which will produce outside life as well. God cannot dwell with sin and if the temple He is dwelling in (believer) becomes corrupt and rebellious then He cannot remain. This is why few enter the kingdom. Not simply because people never repent but many who do repent and born again won’t make it until the end. This is what so many of the parables are teaching. Jesus said if you don’t understand the parable of the seeds and soil you won’t understand the others. I think the promises of God are not meant to be taken as unconditional guarantees but are true and guaranteed if the believer remains faithful, if the sheep continues to listen to and follow Jesus and walk/obey by faith. His promises are meant to be held onto and produce in the believer a desire and motivation to remain loyal, devoted, and obedient to Christ by faith so that they will be obtained. Salvation is only obtained to those born again who remain faithful and endure until the end.

          • Just pray for God’s grace to overcome sin and you will be fine and the Holy Spirit will never leave you or will return to your life if you truly forsake your sinful lifestyle. God bless.

        • I back slid for quite a few years. I don’t know why I didn’t feel. conviction then. my worst sin was formication. I even married an unbeliever. well my husband died 2 years ago. he did say the sinners prayer and always asked me to pray for him. I love him very much and miss greatly. I am heavily grieving. after that I still committed formication with someone I was with 20 years ago. now he also died. a little after that I felt deep conviction for my sins. I returned to the lord and seek him every day. the only problem is the additions I was delivered from like smoking came back. now even after prayer for help nothing. I never feel the presence of God . no more visions or dreams like I had during the first time I was saved. I have lost hope. I have trouble getting out of bed. Is there any hope for me ? I want to serve the lord for the rest of my days. I told the Lord I am very weary and need of help now.

          Reply
          • Yes, dear, there is hope if you truly repent and return to the Lord with all your heart which I hope and pray you will do as soon as possible before it’s too late. God bless and pray that you will be restored quickly. God bless.

  1. I’m having a hard time right now cause I don’t want to sin against God and I won’t but the holy spirit feels far from me. I backslid for about a year and I just want to continue walking with the lord more than anything…I still feel conviction of sin but when I read my Bible it feels as though it’s too late…but even with that thought of feeling like it’s to late I still don’t want to sin against him so I’m having a hard time right now

    • It’s not too late dear brother the fact that it shows you want to walk with the Lord even when you backslid before shows that there is still hope for you for full restoration and that God’s Spirit is still at work in your life. Just don’t give up and vow to sin no more and you will be fine in no time. Stay blessed and hope my reply was of great help to you. Satan is the one who want you to think that it’s too late when in fact it’s not.

      • I am like some of the others here. I feel like I have sin so much that I don’t feel the holy spirit any longer. I use to feel the spirit if I said or done something wrong but not now and I don’t won’t to die and go to hell. I believe Jesus died for my sins and I know he’s son of God. What can I do to to feel the holy spirit again? I listen to preaching every night and I still can’t feel the holy spirit even when u pray to the Lord. Please pray for me .

  2. First off you cannot lose the Holy Spirit when you are saved you are sealed to the day of redemption this is a false hope if your saying the Holy Spirit can be lost yes you can grieve the Holy Spirit but never lose it he that starts a good work in you will finish it without the Holy Spirit you would have no salvation and there wouldn’t be no regeneration there is nothing we can do to lose the Holy Spirit unless it is by works to keep it the only requirement is to be born again by grace through faith in Jesus death burial and resurrection and we are promised eternal life and the Holy Spirit to the day of redemption there is nothing else we can do to keep our salvation we don’t follow Gods laws or are we saved by works when Jesus went to the cross you took all of our sins from past present and future there is power in his blood God bless all my brothers and sisters in Christ ❤️✝️

        • Darling, have an honest talk with God. Speak from your heart, if you have to start off by saying what you think you should be praying about, eventually, if you focus on speaking, God will give you the words. When that line of communication is opened, the holy spirit will flood through!

        • It depends on the apostate state of the person. Most cannot come back not because God doesn’t want them saved but because many out of their own free will have chosen to reject God which is why many apostates don’t return as they couldn’t care less about God. Hope this helps God bless. If you fell like returning to God then, it shows you are not a true apostate because if you were, God wouldn’t matter to you anymore.

          • I’ve returned to God after 30 years. I am having a hard time with receiving gods forgiveness. Please pray for me. I know I rejected God, but I have repented.

          • That’s good to hear, dear sis in the Lord. As long as you have truly repented with all your heart, everything should be ok in the end. God bless and may the Lord fully restore you in Jesus name. Amen.

    • Hebrews makes it very clear that Jesus is the final and once for all sacrifice for sins but future sins are only forgiven so long as they are confessed and repented of. This is why Jesus says to pray every day and confess/ask for forgiveness and in 1 John and continue to repent with the intent of stopping the sin/running from it. There is no forgiveness without confession and repentance even for the believer. That is true when someone is first saved and for being saved (ongoing). Jesus saves people and puts His Spirit in them to live a new life (thinking, speaking, actions, decisions) to glorify God and die to self. Jesus is now their Lord and Savior. The believer must continue to forsake sin or it will lead them to hell. You’ll see this is the gospels and letters which is why believers are commanded not to grieve and quench the Spirit. If someone is quenching the Spirit they are drifting away from Christ and in danger of blasphemy and rejecting Christ because the Spirit starts to dissipate and isn’t providing as much conviction and power over sin and His voice becomes faint. When this happens the believer is in danger of presumptuous sins/willful and blasphemy Christ and waling away.

      • Hi, read my previous comment. (same day August 5th 2023)

        I am like you, and Andrew. After regeneration I was living in unbelief and did not realise it until around 2-3 years later when I began to fear I’d committed the unforgivable sin.

        We must realise how serious unbelief is, its a root of many other dangerous sins, unbelief can be the source of almost every sin. Its what caused the fall and the same way Satan deceived Adam and eve is the same way he deceives us now. He doesn’t say the words God is a liar, He uses deception but it brings about the same end, he calls God a liar. We wouldn’t believe the first, but the second is easy to fall for if you are in spiritual darkness. Which none of us need be when we are regenerated all we need to do is have faith.

    • You would likely know if you never had the Holy Spirit. If you never born again then you can’t fall away from Christ if you never possessed Him and knew Him to begin with. The Spirit would have given you new life and start changing your heart on the inside and a living relationship with Him. If you never had this, then you need to repent and believe the gospel and ask God to give you His Holy Spirit so that you can love Him and follow all that He commands and are willing to leave your old life behind to gain new life in Him.

  5. These 10 signs have not been seen in my life for the past 10 years I remember the day the Holy Spirit left my heart It was the most terrifying day of my life Ever since he left my life has been dark gloomy I’ve lived in despair depression anxiety fear hopelessness I feel I have no direction no answers from God no guidance no leading from the Holy Spirit empty. The 1st 12 years of my walk with God. I continued watching pornography pornography smoking marijuana marijuana very angry, mean. ,lusting, sexual immorality. Until one day in prayer the Lord spoke to my spirit and told me that if I can that if I continued and will for sin that I would go to hell. Until one day I decided to smoke some marijuana after the 1st hit right when I inhaled I heard him say to me that I made my choice and his Holy Spirit left my heart I felt the spirit leave my heart And has never returned up to this day I can’t repent no matter how much I try No amount of fasting praying or reading the word of God I feel condemned abandoned and forsaken I’m doomed. Not even in church do I feel his presence his people don’tWant anything to do with me I feel rejected by everyone even his people.. 1st John 5:16 says that there is a sin that leads to death I believe that is where I’m at now with no expectation of salvation only of hell fire. He says in his word that he’ll never leave you nor forsake you, that is true he will never do it not of his own accord, but if we continue to sin he will depart, He We’ll give you over to a reprobate mind.

  7. I realized about 5 years ago that I am not saved. I thought I was all these years because I have a reprobate mind. When I was 18-19 I was constantly going against what the Holy Spirit was convicting me to do. I never really repented of my sins just kept asking Jesus to save me. One night after I had just moved my boyfriend in with me (I was separated but not divorced from my husband) I was laying in bed with him and I felt my conscience (the Holy Spirit) go out like a light. All of the sudden the guilty feeling I had had in my stomach for so long went away. Since then I had a quiet sound in my head. Hardly any thoughts, nothing to talk about nothing to be passionate about, no convictions and not really any feelings. I thought all these years that I was just depressed and I didn’t realize that I was not saved and I don’t have the Holy Spirit or Jesus. I dont understanf how I could have done that. I don’t know why I didn’t realize I was losing God and that I was going to be eternally condemned. I am so scared. I can’t live life. I lay in my bed all day long and try to pray but I know it’s too late for me. I have been reading about how some are made for destruction and to be the product of His wrath and I am so sad that I was not chosen as one of the elect. I heard about Jesus all my life and I don’t know how I didn’t do it right. Why would I refuse a Savior and not want to walk through life with the Holy Spirit and all the children of God. I thought I had a mental illness and that was why I couldn’t connect. That’s not it it’s because I have no Holy Spirit or conscience. I keep hoping there is some way out and some way to change my life but I know there isn’t.

I believe what I did by not listening and never repenting is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. I can not remember a time when I made the right choice even once and I always lived with that guilty feeling in my stomach until the day it just went away. I have read everything I can in the Bible and I don’t believe I am one of Gods chosen people.

Don’t listen to the lies of the enemy who falsely wants to convince you that you are done. Thanks and God bless.

        • Hi Thami, I realized that the Holy Spirit has senses of a man even though He is God in everything and everyway. Meaning that you can talk to Him about anything, He does get angry and go silent but I am telling you one thing He’s not far from you. Look at it this way, if God asks a man to forgive a person 70 x 7 (if not mistaken) How much more can God forgive us? Its not too late for you, you just need to receive all that God has for you (forgiveness, love, mercy and many more) and if you are struggling to receive it talk to the Holy Spirit about all of it, remember He’s our helper He will help return to God, if you lack faith He will give you that faith, it is not us its Him who is doing all the work you just need to ask Him to help. It was His work that you realized you are not saved, others die without even realizing. God was gracious to you in opening your eyes that you were walking in deceit. He is inviting you again, you just need to accept the invite.

    • Hi Kathryn, don’t you think maybe you became religious and neglected a relationship with Christ? Matthew 11 28-30 msg says “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take real rest. Walk with me and work with me-watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” May the Holy Spirit minister to you with this word, Jesus wants a relationship with you, He wants you to look to him and be his friend. He wants you to learn from him and rest in his finished works. Remember we cannot earn salvation or his love with our works, we were not saved by works but by His Grace. I love you and God love you even more:-)

  10. The wording of this article is very misleading. If you have truly received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, the Holy Spirit, will NEVER leave you! Please read Ephesians 1:13-14. The seal indicates possession and security. The presence of the Holy Spirit, the seal, is the believer’s guarantee of the security of his salvation. Clearly, we can grieve the Spirit (Ephesians 4:30) and quench the Spirit (1 Thessalonians 5:19), but He will never leave you. Please do not be misled by the wording of this article. I would encourage you to make sure you have truly confessed Jesus as your Lord and Savior. If you have, you have no fear of the Holy Spirit leaving you.

    • I think you are mistaken, dear and I am sure you believe in an OSAS false doctrine from hell. There is no such thing as eternal security as God’s Spirit can leave you if you condone sin in your life as He can’t dwell in dirty and defiled temples Also, the above scripture you have quoted only applies to true believers who choose to remain faithful and steadfast to God till the end and not those who backslide into sin. I hope that helps and God bless.

  12. Hello Everyone, I have known the Lord since March 23,1977 and I was 30 years old at the time. My relationship with the Holy Spirit was so wonderful, I heard His still small voice and I heard His audible Voice one time which sounded like a great waterfall roaring up from deep inside my being. I remember so vividly when one day I was crying out to Him because I had gross sin in my life and I confessed it to Him many times asking for forgiveness and help but on this particular day as I was crying out to Him, telling Him that I can’t do this I heard Him say to me “You can’t but I can ” My relationship with Jesus stayed alive for many years and in 2001,my husband of then 35 years died suddenly. I was totally alone with 2 of my 6 children still to raise and since my husband died on the same day that he signed his retirement papers, I lost his pension as well. I had no income except for what I made working as a Nanny for Professional parents. I should have been peaceful and with no fear of the future because I KNEW the Lord and His Word but for whatever reason, I began doing what I saw to be right in my own eyes. I never made an intentional decision to ignore the Lord but intentional or not, I did and made a slow slide downhill and away from Him. Now I am 76 years old and just like I have read here, I cannot hear Him or sense His Presence and I read the 10 ways that you can tell if He left you and some of them I can identify with but others, I don’t have or haven’t experienced. I never have lost my desire to please Him but then I get distracted and wind up just acting as if I wasn’t saved, not so much in any gross sin anymore but still neglecting my salvation and my Savior. I have had a stroke a few years back and I have possibly had another one recently. My thinking is a bit messed up along with my memory but I really need someone to pray for me to be restored to the place where I used to be with my Lord and Savior, I miss Him so much and it has been over 10 years like this ,I am miserable and scared, please pray for me, Carol

    • Will be praying for you dear sister in the Lord but ensure that you remain steadfast in Him and contend for the faith once delivered to your as the early Christians despite their hardships they went through. I know, dear, it can be hard losing your loved one but as long as your hubby died in the Lord don’t worry but be more determined that you will meet him on the other side of eternity when you finish your Christian race. Indeed, as long as you live in this fallen world, you will have trouble, suffering and tribulation but be of good cheer and count it all joy when your faith get tested as great will be your rewarded in heaven if you don’t give up on the Lord of course. God bless.

If you want to build a strong relationship with God, I encourage you to do daily quiet time and read your bible daily so that you can grow spiritually. Also, associate yourself with other serious true believers in a bible-believing church that teaches the whole truth of God’s word who are serious with God and can help and edify you to grow in the things of the Lord. Hope my answer helps and God bless.

    • I hear you, dear. It’s common to feel that God cannot forgive you in such a situation but if you are truly repentant, He will not reject you. If you want full restoration, just come to the Lord in full repentance and mean it in your heart that you want nothing to do with sin anymore and Christ will fully restore even better than you were at the beginning before you backslid. No matter your past sins, the Lord will receive your back as His own as He died for you but make sure your heart is truly repentant and vow not to return to your older sinful lifestyle. For more help on how to submit to God, kindly read the two post below and I hope they will be of good help to you. God bless.

    • It’s good that you are worrying about your spiritual life. If you want proof of the Spirit’s present in your life, you need to fully give yourself to the Lord and lay aside any sinful habits you may be in and be truly born again if you are not yet so to attract the Holy Spirit’s presence in your life.

Yes, the Spirit will never leave a believe as long as they continue in the Lord but if they backslide and willfully go back to sin despite many warnings from God, that’s a different story and I hope you have not been deceived by the false doctrines of Calvinism leading many precious innocent souls to hell who thought they can never lose their salvation even if they continued in willful sin.

    When I read the 10 signs the only one missing is gods presence however I think I’ve committed apostasy because I was saved at 19 but fell away into disbelief for decades but now want to come back to God but read Hebrews 6 and it seems I can’t return but whenever I ask a pastor or anyone who is spirit filled they all say I can return. My question is can you be saved more than once and can the holy spirit come back to you after you cause him to leave . Thank you

  22. Has anyone actually had the holy spirit restored? If so how long did it take? I lost the holy spirit through wilful sinning and never repented of it for a few months. I’ve tried repenting over and over but haven’t had any luck. It’s hard to focus on God when you have the feeling of being condemned. I went through stress, anxiety, fear when I realised the spirit had departed from me. Problems give you wisdom, I learned all the things I shouldn’t do too late. I still watch other believers on YouTube, I haven’t really picked up my Bible that much though and my prayer life is pretty much non existent unless I’m repenting with the hope of coming back to God. I’m pretty much doing the opposite of what I should be doing. Any help will be appreciated.

    • Yes, you can be fully restored if you truly repent right now with all your heart. All you need to come to the Lord in true repentance and everything will be ok. Hope that helps.

  23. Hi ! Feel i lost the Holy spirit, i felt a fear overcoming me. After deliverance that was really bad! I looked at my children i suddenly feeled scared the things coming back. And then I feelled something enter me.
    Since I feel lost despair forever going to eternal fire. I am not myself empty. The word is comdeming me. I think it was i wish this was all a dream!
    Torture to the worst! I see Gods work everywhere and I dont feel part of it anymore. I used to have everything He always blessed me. Now im standing a chnage to loose everything even my life. I ask for mercy I cant even pray anymore! I think I did not think the work is vomplete during deliverance and wanted to feel free as the people described. And i was scared. I think God removed His spirit. I see God everywhere now! I feel i am lost and do know what to do. Feels like repenting is not going to work .

  24. It’s been almost 40 yrs that I rejected the drawing of the holy spirit. He convicted me for 6 months but my pride in front of family and church people kept me from walking the isle. I’ve always read magazines, his word, and listened to sermons since then but I knew (after the fact after I learned about the unpardonable sin) that I crossed that point. I’ve been empty since snd lived in fear. Once that’s committed, God doesn’t give you another chance?
