Ask For The Holy Spirit

Hi, Jesus loves you

Have you ever felt lonely and desired a friend who will accept you as you are? Or have you ever felt like being alone but still desired to talk to a higher personality? I know who fits well to who you desire to fellowship with; He is the Holy Spirit. This post tells you why the Spirit of God is your best helper.

But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you – John 14:26 (AMP)

However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come- John 16:13 (NKJV)

Once in a while people get to a point where they wish they are like God Almighty: omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient. They wish that with the wave of their hands, everything will align according to their plans. And sometimes, the circumstances will be so frustrating that you won’t want to see another soul for some time. If you are in such a state you need the Spirit of God.

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the trinity (1 John 5:7), comprising God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is the force behind creation (Genesis 1:2) and the administrator of all God’s plans, and is presently full-time on earth to represent Jesus and act on His behalf (John 14:26, AMP).

The Spirit of the Lord is here to comfort you, counsel, help, intercede, advocate and strengthen you. He is also your standby that will never disappoint or fail you. Every other person or thing may fail you but not the Spirit of God, who is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent.

He is the voice deep down you telling you that all will be well. And He being the Spirit of truth (John 1:13) will never tell you a lie or deceive you. You can rely on Him absolutely! He is the perfect guide for He knows the end from the beginning (Revelations 22:13). He will teach you all things (John 14:26), including how to solve that problem and show you things to come (John 16:13), so no need for guess-work or trial and error. (more…)

Holy Spirit empowers you

How The Holy Spirit Empowers You For Good Works

Holy Spirit empowers you

Hi, Jesus loves you

It is good to do good works and glorify the name of God. But how do you ensure that your works are good and acceptable before God? Acceptable works not only imparts lives at the present but also continues to speak long after you’ve gone. This post gives the place of the Holy Spirit in doing great works.

How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him – Acts 10:38 (NKJV)

What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead – James 2:14-17 (NKJV)

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them – Ephesians 2:10 (NKJV)

Jesus Christ was known for His good works and while on earth, He told His disciples in John 14:12, that anybody who believes in Him will not only do what He was doing but would do greater works because He was going to His Father. Christ departed to the father and the Holy Spirit, the Helper was sent to believers (John 16:7, Acts 2:1-4).

What are good works?

Good works comprise your everyday activities, Evangelical and charitable activities and signs and wonders that are good before God. They are not just good deeds but also your daily conduct before God: your thoughts, words and actions. They are things that are pleasing and acceptable before God.

They are your witnesses to the unbelievers, edifying examples to your fellow Christians and ways of representing Christ wherever you may be. They are proofs of your faith in Christ, for faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead (James 2:14-17); and without faith, it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 6:11)

Also, good works are means of meeting the needs of others especially those of the Christian-fold. In addition, they are channels of manifesting God’s love and power. (more…)

Victory Of Jesus A Reality By The Help Of The Holy Spirit

Spirit of God

Hi, Jesus loves you.

Do you desire help in your endeavour? I recommend the help of the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ enjoyed His help tremendously and was able to fulfill His mission on earth successfully and without stress. The Holy Spirit is the administrator of God’s will on earth and so is the best authority to consult in all issues concerning your life. This post tells the impact of His work in Christ’s mission on earth.

How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him – Acts 10:38 (NKJV)

For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure – John 3:34 (NKJV)

And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father. But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” – Acts 1:4, 8 (NKJV)

Jesus started and ended on earth with the help of the Holy Spirit. Redemption was purely master-minded by the Godhead: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit (the Trinity). God the Father planned it (Genesis 3:15), God the Son (Jesus) executed it (Matthew 1:21) and God the Holy Spirit will bring it to completion (Ephesians 4:30).

Long before the birth of Christ, the Holy Spirit through the prophets prophesied (2 Peter 1:21) all about Jesus: His birth, mission, crucifixion, death and resurrection – Isaiah 9:6-7, Isaiah 52:13-53:12, Zechariah 12:10, Psalm 16:8-11 and Psalm 22. He started with Christ on earth from the very beginning, continued with Him till He departed the earth and remained on earth to perfect the redemption agenda. He continued with the disciples of Jesus and is still helping Christian believers today.

Jesus and the Holy Spirit

  • Conception

Jesus was born of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God came upon Mary, and the power of God overshadowed her so that the child born was called Son of God – Luke 1:35. The child was born and He grew and became strong in the Spirit – Luke 2:40.

  • Baptism

At the baptism of Jesus Christ, the Godhead manifested themselves significantly: after His baptism and Jesus came up from the water, the Spirit of God descended like a dove and remained on Him, then God’s voice came from heaven declaring Jesus His Son, in whom He was well pleased – Matthew 3:16-17.

Jesus was ushered fully into His ministry with these baptisms: baptism by immersion and baptism of the Holy Spirit. John the Baptist, in John 3:34 testified that God gave Christ the Spirit without measure, empowering Him to fulfill His mission on earth.

Jesus confirming the importance of the baptism of the Holy Spirit for success in life and ministry, commanded His disciples to remain in Jerusalem till they were baptized also, so they can fulfill their ministry too – Acts 1:4, 8

  • Temptation

Christ, being filled with the Spirit of God after the baptism, was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to prepare for His ministry, and there He was tempted for forty days by the devil – Luke 4:1-15. Jesus resisted every type of temptation the enemy tempted Him with: the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life (1 John 2:15-17). (more…)

The Word of Christ

The Power Of The Words of Jesus

1

The Word of Christ

Hi, Jesus loves you.

Jesus started with the word and will end with the word. An understanding of how powerful Jesus’ words are will give you peace and victory in life. It will make you a master over the enemy and challenges of life.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made – John 1:1-3 (NKJV)

He is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God’s] nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power… – Hebrews 1:3 (AMP, emphasis mine)

And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh – Revelations 19:19, 21 (NKJV, emphasis mine)

Jesus Christ is the Word

John 1:1 and Revelation 19:13 tell you that Jesus is the word of God. You can’t separate Christ from His word. Jesus is the word of God that became flesh and dwelt among men – John 1:14

An understanding of this truth will help you realize that the scriptures from Genesis to Revelation speak Christ. For example the lifted brazen serpent in the time of Moses represented Jesus on the cross – John 3:14. Everyone that looked upon the serpent was healed of the snake bite and lived – Numbers 21:9. So also, anyone who believes on the lifted Christ will not perish but have eternal life – John 3:15

Furthermore, Christ also confirmed it in John 5:46-47 (NKJV), when He said, “For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?” The scriptures and words of Christ are one. Christ is the word of God and all the books of the bible, including the books of Moses, talk about Him. An understanding of this will give you clearer meaning of what is written in the scriptures.

Created the world by His word

God created the world by His word. Throughout the history of creation, you will keep seeing ‘God said… and it was so’ – Genesis 1. God spoke the universe into existence; by His spoken words, everything came to be. All things were made through Christ (the word), and without Him nothing was made that was made (John 1:3), whether visible or invisible, thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him (Colossians 1:16).

I can’t imagine how Christ felt when He came into the world, made through Him, and His very own didn’t receive Him – John 1:10-11. It must have been very disappointing to Him. The nature you see and adore was made by Jesus. This is the reason why, everything created obey His words: the wind, sea, trees, animals, birds and fishes. (more…)
