Praise the name of the lord both from now and forever … amen!!!
Today on our daily Epistle, we are going to be looking at the ministry of the HOLYGHOST and why every Christians needs the Holyghost for an enviable life of dominion and fulfillment of Destiny.
When Jesus was going to depart, he promise us the release of the Comforter, which is the holyspirit, and there are a lot more that the holyspirit can do beyond what we think we know and beyond what we have always know.
Every realities on the earth were made manifest as by the holyghost, which is the same spirit of God, which the bible says it “Ovals over all the Earth ” and after which, there was avoice “Let there be light, and there was no light, so there is not going to be a voice of God which connotes divine instruction as to how we will navigate our life and destiny on the earth, untill we have the holyspirt living and abiding inside of us.
You must understand that the holyspirit is also the promise of the father to us, and the bible calls him “The Comforter”.
But before we go further, who exactly is the Holyspirit?
The Holyspirit is the 3rd Person in the God-head, for we have the FATHER, SON and the HOLYSPIRIT that makes up the GOD-HEAD.
Why do we need the Holyspirit?
We need the Holysprit because, he comes as a representative of Christ on the earth, Christianity will be without form and void, it will be totally meaningless untill the holyspirit comes.
The reality and the tangibility of the power of God which is embedded in the Gospel of Christ will never and can never be made manifest untill the Holyspirit comes, the holyspirit is what energizes a believer for an ever winning and a ever victorious life on the earth.
His core mission is to help believers through the journey of life. He is to make our lives meaningful, impactful and profitable. The Holy Ghost is the One that makes redemption profitable, valuable, impactful and meaningful.
God’s Word says: The body without the spirit is dead…(James 2:26). So, Christianity without the Holy Ghost is dead, meaningless and valueless. Just like the body without the spirit is dead, redemption without the Holy Ghost is nothing but religious practices which always end up to frustration.
So in the absence of the spirit of God ( Which is the Holyspirit) You are likely going to be frustrated as you journey in life as a believer, his presence is what guarantees God’s glory in the life of a believer.
It is important that l made it clear to you that the HOLY SPIRIT is a PERSON, he can relate with you and he wants to relate with your day to day activity and lifestyle, in everything that you do, the Holyspirit wants to guide you to the end that you will not miss any step, for the bible says Isaiah 30 : 21 – And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
So the Holyghost is a custodian of Revelation and Direction, you can not have him and yet be in confusion in your life again! As a matter of fact, Jesus was able to walk the face of the earth successfully without blemish solely by the help of the holyspirit.
The ministry of our Lord Jesus began when the Holyspirit came upon him, all this while he as been a nobody, just a mere son of Carpenter and of no relevance, but in The bible says, = Acts 10 : 38 – How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
So The Ministry of Jesus came to lime light and began working of Power, move of the spirit and healing by the anointing of the holyghost that came upon him.
If Jesus did Exploits by the empowerment of the holyghost, then we can not ignore it.
What does The Holyspirit does For Believers ?
- Conviction of Sin (Salvation) : This is the work of the Holyspirit, you don’t have the power to save the soul of any sinner, no matter how much you try as a preacher, your words really can not be potent enough to convict a sinner of his evil ways, untill the Holyspirit comes to witness into the heart of the listener, for the Bible says – John 16 : 13 “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.” and the Bible also made it clear in John 16 : 8 – 7 But I tell you the truth, it is for your benefit that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you. 8 And when He comes, He will convict the world of sin and righteousness and judgment: So If you wanna see more souls saved in your services, crusade and meetings, you need to pray down the Holyspirit in the program, to the end that there will always be a conviction in the heart of every sinner in the service.
- Divine Instruction : The End to afflictions, tears, failure, pain, oppression and tears in the life and destiny of a man is Divine Instruction, when you know where you are going, you tend to move faster with a better faster speed, some people are running from pillar to post, they are toiling all night an day with their career; all because that is not God’s agenda for their live, every lifting and progressive step in the life of a man starts with “Thus saith the lord“. Hearing God is ordain to be part f your christian life. The Holyspirit is the custodian of the Voice of God, the bible calls him a “Teacher” it says, he shall teach you all things, John 14 : 26 – But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. So if you have the Holyspirit in fullness in your life, you will not lack what to do in the journey of Life, you will rather always know what to do. Hearing the Voice of God always is an experience of those who have had the Baptism of the Holyghost, it facilitates direction for the fulfillment of Destiny on Earth.
- Passion and Love For God : Its amazing how that we saw the First Commandment to be “LOVE THE LORD THY GOD”, you can not love God the way you love your spouse or your husband, NO!!! Spiritual realities are not birthed by physical actions and steps, you need the spirit of God to help you love God passionately and unending. Every Lover of God emerge as Giants in their days and they fulfill destiny in Grand style, because the bible made it clear that; When a man’s ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him – Proverb 16 : 7. So When you love God, you enjoy peace in Life and it takes the Holyspirit for you to Love and Please God; And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us – Romans 5 : 5.
- Empowerment and Edification of The Saints : We need to be edify and fortified with the power from on high, in this cruel and wicked world, it takes the empowerment from heaven for our Lives and Destiny to be preserve from the enemy, now this can not be achieved without the Holyspirit, for there is a way and how you must live if you must stay edified and fortify with power, one of the ways through which we stay empowerment and edified is the Praying, Studying and Worshiping God in the Spirit, for ye beloveth, building up your most Holy Faith by Praying in the Holyghost! – Jude 1 : 20. So praying in the spirit helps you to build up power and spiritual capacity to stand in the days of trails and in battle warfare. We are bound to have challenges as a christian, but we are never to be defeated, for the Spirit of God that dwells in us is powerful.
- Enthronement : This is very important, our enthronement is always facilitated by the directions and instructions we receives from the spirit of God at work in us. Every Child of God is ordain a child of Destiny, and there is an how – to getting to your place of enthronement, beyond whatsoever a prophetic word, you obedience to the instructions from the Holyghost will take you to your place of enthronement faster than you can ever imagine. Jesus was a normal person on the earth, untill he was baptist, his ministry impacted the world so much that we are still speaking about it today, and therein we were all saved, so the holyspirit is a facilitator of God’s divine agenda.
- Passion for Lost Souls : Longing to see the souls of your friends and unbelievers saved is not by wrong, it’s not a feeling also, this is actually the workings of the spirit of God inside of you, for God wants every man to be saved! So Soul winning is one of God’s priority, for the bible says; there is joy in heaven over one sinner that repenteth – Luke 15 : 7. So The Holyspirit empowers us to be passionate about the souls of the unsaved delivered into the kingdom of Light. and there are whole lot of benefits of saving souls, you will experience God’s order of extra blessing, you are going to be shinning, for the bible says And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever – Daniel 12 : 3 . You will also experience God’s divine health and divine provision.
- Revelation of The Word : The Holyspirit is a custodian of Revelation, it is not enough that you know bible in your head, you must have the revelation aspect of what it is written. The Holyspirit grants our spirit the access to the mind of God in scriptures, don’t read the bible like a news, it can transform your Life, but you must engage the holyspirit for access, and you know, the bible says – With Joy shall ye draw water out of the Well of Salvation – Isaiah 12 : 3. So It takes Joy to access deep revelation and the Holyspirit is a custodian of Joy unspeakable.
- Insight into Deep secrets : This is another specialized ministry of the Holyspirit, he always grant men access to divine secrets and deep things, for the bible says, My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: – John 10 : 27.
- Manifold Wisdom of God :The Wisdom of God is one of the secret of great men among the saints, it is not enough to be knowledgeable in certain field of life, the manifold wisdom will always be ahead of your knowledge, so to access the wisdom of God, you must walk with the holyspirit in prayers and fasting in order to perceive and understand how to do things, how to live, how to win the enemy, how to be great and successful in life and destiny. Even Our nation can be better and transform when the leaders are acquainted with the Holyspirit, they will be able to lead our nation appropriately as by the Spirit of God, they will be able to understand the mind of God for the nation. King Solomon encounter the wisdom of God and by Redemption, we are ordain to be greater than him, so if we will desire and pray for the fullness of the holyspirit to come upon us this day, then we shall be continually victorious in all aspects of Life.
- Utterance in the Spirit For Building up FAITH: This is one of the specialization of the Holyspirit that i so much love, When you encounter the baptism of the Spirit, one of the evidence is your tongue break lose in the spirit, and you begin to speak in Other Tongues (Tongues of men and tongues of angels), spiritually ability begin to break forth inside of you and you begin to see visions, prophecy, pray with such great power, unction and the anointing of the spirit rests upon you, this is what brings men to a realm of walking and people are falling down on their both under the influence of the anointing, that is upon them, and you can not carry such a huge dimension of the spirit like this and be grounded in Life never! This is not possible. The Utterance of the spirit that came out of your mouth will always deliver into your life “What to say” you become so relevant like Joseph, that irrespective of your background, your ideas will worth billions and Kings, Queens, Presidents and Dignitaries will come to hear what you have to say, these are the by-product of the experiences we have in the spirit realm. When you experience the baptism of the holyghost, you may not understand what you are saying, but keep saying it, its an unknown tongue, coming forth as an utterance from the spirit realm, over time as you begin to grow in the spirit, the ability to interpret the tongues will be breaking forth in you. The Bible made this clear in;
Acts 2:2-4King James Version (KJV)
2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
This spiritual breaking experience was what transformed the Apostles from their lukewarm fearful states into a fearless disciples o Christ, and it was amazing that after this encounter, the first church that Peter preached to, they were about 3,000 souls that gave their lives to JESUS, Witnessing for the lord becomes easy when the Holyghost as come.
These are only few out of the numerous ability of the Holy spirit and what he can do for anyone who believers, having the holyghost baptism with the evidence of speaking in Tongues starts right from you believing in the Lord that the Holyspirit is a promise of the father, then you living your life to please him, as a way to ensure you draw his attention to your direction, it can also be experienced by the laying of hands, but i had my own Holyghost Baptism right in room, 1st year in School i was praying for the baptism and it came, i spoke in Tongues and ever since the, my life as never remain the same, i have been a victorious christian ever after….. Praise the name of the lord.
You can also have the Holyspirit in his full manifestation but it starts with Salvation, if you have been saved, you can request in Prayers for the Holyspirit to come upon you and he shall surely come in JESUS name, the lord Bless you all.
