CELEBRATING THE HOLY SPIRIT PART (2)
- Job 33:4 says, “The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.” Make this confession – I have the breath of God in me. What does the breath of God do? Once the breath of God leaves a man, then comes death. The person may still be breathing but there is no more life in him. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of life. That is why we need to celebrate him. Psa. 104:30-33 says, “Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth. the glory of the LORD shall endure forever: the LORD shall rejoice in his works. He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he touchech the hills, and they smoke. I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.” The Holy Spirit is not only the spirit of transformation but also the spirit of renewal. If you want your youth to be renewed, get excited about your connection with the Holy Spirit. Understand that for as long as the life-giving power of God is flowing through you, you will be renewed; you will be reinvigorated and your youth will be renewed like the eagle’s. The Spirit of God is the spirit of restoration, the spirit of longevity and the spirit of life. As long as the spirit of life is flowing through you, everywhere you enter, death will disappear and every agent of death will submit. That is how to be a transformer; that is how to be a healing agent in a sick world. That is how to be a restorer of bridges. You don’t really need any title to be a planet shaker, all you need is the proper connection to the Holy Ghost; when he flows through you, you will get to the overflow dimension. Your life becomes impactful, the very atmosphere where you operate will radiate life, so much life that sickness and death will vanish at your presence.
- The Holy Spirit as God is omniscient. This means that the Holy Spirit knows everything. He is a knowing spirit and not an ignorant spirit. He is the spirit of wisdom. If you are a child of God, you should be far ahead in the practical demonstration of wisdom than the people around you. Whenever there is a hard issue and someone is needed to proffer solution, you will be sought after, just like Daniel who not only saved his own life but that of the Chaldean magicians because he was connected. He had the spirit of God inside of him and this spirit of God gave him solution to very hard issue as well as understanding. This is because the Holy spirit is the spirit of wisdom, knowledge and understanding, he is the spirit of counsel and might. Even when people don’t like you, as long as you are a solution provider, you will be celebrated. 1 Cor. 2:10-12, “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.” We have not received the spirit of the world! The Church is in great confusion today because of lack of understanding of this simple revelation. There is the spirit of the world as distinct from the Holy Spirit, they are not the same. If you follow the spirit of the world, you might do exploits in the world but you will end up in hell fire. You may build mansions, cities or even empires; the world may celebrate you but your name is not written in the book of life works in heaven. Why? Because everything you did was done in the flesh and anything that is done in the flesh cannot please God.
