233 If It Is the Work of the Holy Spirit, You Should Accept It

Verse 1

The Jews read the Old Testament,

and therefore they all knew

of Isaiah’s prophecy that a baby boy

would be born in a manger.

So since they knew about this,

why did they persecute Jesus?

It was because of their rebellious nature

and their ignorance of the Holy Spirit’s work.


Verse 2

The Pharisees thought the work

of Jesus was different from

what they knew about the prophesied baby,

and the people now reject God

because the work He does in flesh

does not fit with the Bible.

Is this not the same rebelliousness towards God?

Can you accept the Spirit’s work without question?


Chorus

If it’s the work of the Holy Spirit,

then it surely must be the right stream.

You should accept it with no misgivings;

you should not pick or choose

what to accept.


Verse 3

If you gain more insights from God

and are more cautious towards Him,

does not all of this become wholly uncalled for?

You don’t need to check the Bible;

if it is the work of God,

then you have to accept it.

You believe in God so you should follow Him,

so you should avoid investigating Him.


Bridge

Do not seek more evidence

to prove that He’s your God.

You should be able to tell if He helps you.

Nothing’s more important.

And even if you find

irrefutable proof in the Bible,

it can’t bring you fully before Him.

Your life would be bounded

by what the Bible says,

and not before God;

the Bible can’t help

you to know Him,

nor deepen your love

for Him.


Verse 4

In each age God’s work is constrained

to the work of the current age;

He won’t do work in advance from the next stage.

Only in this way can the work

of each age be emphasized.

Jesus only spoke of the signs of the last days,

how to be patient and saved,

how to repent, confess and endure suffering.


Pre-chorus

Never did Jesus speak of how man in the last days

should achieve entry or fulfill God’s will.

So isn’t it absurd to search in the Bible

for God’s work in the last days?

What is there to see with the Bible in your hands?

No matter who explains the Bible,

who could have predicted today’s work?


Chorus

If it’s the work of the Holy Spirit,

then it surely must be the right stream.

You should accept it with no misgivings;

you should not pick or choose

what to accept.
