“And do not grieve the Holy Spirit” Ephesians 4:30

“Do not put out the Spirits fire or do not quench the Holy Spirit 1 Thes 5:19

These are 2 very different things. Do not grieve the Holy Spirit means to cause to sorrow or to be sorrowful, sad, distressed, to make saddened. The Holy Spirit is a person, the 3rd person of the God head and is incredibly sensitive and we can grieve him without even realizing it. In the context it’s talking about our relationships with one another. It says get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, brawling and slander forgive one another. These are the things that grieve him and make him sad. Just imagine how he feels about the church our families when he sees us treating each other in unloving ways

Do not quench the HS or put out the fire of the HS. This can be the result of our unbelief. Jesus was not able to many miracles in his hometown because of their unbelief and were offended with Him. Jesus wasn’t quenched the Holy Spirit was. Why don’t the gifts of Holy Spirit function more in his church. They are freely given. It would be due to our unbelief and our lack of obedience. Our obedience is absolutely essential if we are not to quench the Holy Spirit and put out the fire of the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is quenched when we are not sensitive to the Spirit and what he is saying and then obeying Him. How many times have we quenched him by not obeying those little promptings when he says share the gospel with that person. Pray for healing for this person. Sometimes we just need to repent and ask for forgiveness for grieving and quenching the wonderful person of the Holy Spirit.
