Holy Spirit

  • The third person in the trinity of God, God the father, the son (Jesus Christ) and The spirit of God
  • Jesus said, It is better I go to my father because the father will send his spirit to live in you to comfort you, lead you the way in the will of God
  • Wherever there is the presence of the Holy Spirit, that is our safest place in terms of living a life up to the standard of the word of God.

Holy Spirit is wonderful counselor

Isaiah 11:2: “And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him,

the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,

the Spirit of counsel and might,

the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.”

• No matter where you are and no matter what you are doing, you can just reach out to him and feel blessed.

• Holy Spirit will never leave you nor forsake you.

• He will strengthen you when you feel weak and helpless.

• When you lay down in pain and agony, he will make you bear your pain.

  • Paul and Silas were severely beaten

• No one on earth will understand what you are going through in life more than him.

• Not even your family, not even your closest friend.

• He is your closest friend.

• He understands everything.

• He is on your side.

• Most of the time, we will fall in trouble when we depend on what is called ‘human counselor’.

• Whether it is a close friend or not, no one can give us the comfort and condolences as the Lord himself can give.

• In fact, they can be trouble when they turn their back on us one day and start gossiping about us.

• On the contrary, the Holy Spirit is a wonderful counselor.

• He will never turn his back on you. He will never let you down under any circumstances. Where shall I find him? Where do I seek him? We will find him when we incline our heart to him. I don’t know how many times we have done that every day.

• The Holy Spirit just speaks to our soul every day in various ways, but we couldn’t listen to his voice.

• We spend most of our time on something that is of no value compared to the life he can give us.

• We never have time to stop for a moment and talk to him in a manner that we can talk and listen to a person.

• But when we do, we know he is so kind, knowing every deep secret of our heart.

Holy Spirit Convicts of Our Sins

Proverbs 3:11-12: "My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline, and do not resent his rebuke, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in."

• But many who have already chosen the road to death wouldn’t want to do that because he will convict them of their sins and they don’t want to confess their sins to him and become forgiven.

• However, his convictions are not like anger full of judgment.

• His convictions bring life rather than death.

• When the devil convicts you of your sins, he condemns you and you will regret it to death.

• But when the Spirit of God convicts your sin, he does that so that you may come out of your miserable life and follow his voice in the light, the everlasting life of peace and love.

• That’s how we know who is convicting us of sin.

• If it is the Holy Spirit, he will lead us into peace.

• More confession to him, we feel more relief and more peace inside.

• Less confession means we are depriving ourselves of this wonderful healer’s peace.

• When the sinner lady cried out her innermost pain and trouble of her life at Jesus’ feet, she was forgiven. Luke 7:36

• But how do we know if we are forgiven?

• It all depends on how much we ask for forgiveness.

• It all depends on how much we forgive ourselves in the first place.

• It all depends on how sincerely we cry out to him with truth and hate for sin.

• God is so much more generous than we can possibly imagine in forgiving our sins.

• So don’t say that your sin is bigger than God’s mercy and forgiveness.

• There is no sin that the blood of Jesus cannot cleanse if we come to him knowing that he is the complete healer.

• He is a healer of a nation and the whole world.

• How come the almighty cannot forgive your sin?

• We have to come to him by faith and by faith we will receive our healing of sin.

• We have to take him as our only option, not as an option.

• I just wonder how the Holy Spirit is represented by a dove when he descended from heaven and testified that Jesus is the Son of God.

• What a good representation of the Spirit of God to us.

• He is peace.

• At some point in his ministry, the Bible teaches us that Jesus felt this wonderful joy inside of him that was not related to any source from outside.

• I wonder if we could experience such a joy in our lives every day, how things could be different.

Holy Spirit is a Living Water

John 4:14 Whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst

Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV): “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”

• The way we talk and love and see things would be completely different.

• That is why we need him so badly.

• We need his voice daily.

• We need him more than anything in life.

• No devil can come between us and the Holy Spirit.

• He may tempt you to go away from him.

• He may tempt you to sin against him.

• But he is just jealous when we establish a covenant relationship with the Spirit of God.

• He just doesn’t know what we are talking about.

• He is really confused when we talk to God in secret through his spirit like a son talks to his father.

• A Christian living without day-to-day experience of this peace and joy from the Holy Spirit is like a fish living without water.

• We are just empty, dry, and a very clear target for the enemy.

• This shall dictate to us how it is really important to live in the presence of the Holy Ghost day by day to avoid temptations,    sin, and the troubles of the world and be led into our eternal blessing and joy to our father through our Lord Christ Jesus. Amen!

Holy Spirit Guarantee of our inheritance

“The Spirit is the guarantee [the first installment, the pledge, a foretaste] of our inheritance until the redemption of God’s own [purchased] possession [His believers], to the praise of His glory.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭1‬:‭14‬

“ And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God [but seek to please Him], by whom you were sealed and marked [branded as God’s own] for the day of redemption [the final deliverance from the consequences of sin].”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭4‬:‭30‬ ‭AMP‬‬

• Come heal my broken heart.

• Come fill me with simple joy that is not related to anything in life.

• Because you are the source of joy that will never run out in Jesus Name Amen!!.
