We need to realize that the Holy Spirit is living in us. And the more we empty ourselves of self, the more he will be in us. Only the fact that we will refuse to let go of our old character can hinder him. I say hinder, but if God wants our full attention just like he did with Paul on the road to Damascus. Then nothing will stop him and what a privilege that is for us.
This means that the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords will visit us and reveal himself to us. The purpose of all this? is to give us his character. What is his character? look up the fruits of the Holy Spirit in Galatians chapter 5. There you will see the character of Jesus.
