THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THE BLESSING!.

Nov 29, 2021

Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth…Genesis 1:28

God created man and gave him dominion over everything on the face of the earth.

He blessed him because it was the blessing that had the power to make him fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, subdue and dominate.

However, man could not manifest this blessing alone. He needed help.

The LORD God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”…Genesis 2:18.

The help God referred to was not just the help of a woman. It was the person of the Holy Spirit.

Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the HELPER will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you…John 16:7

He is the friend who sticks closer than a brother. ( Proverbs 18:24)

He is the revealer of the deep things (the secrets) of God, and the things to come. ( John 16:13, 2 Corinthians 2:9-11, Daniel 2:18-19)

He will never leave us and is always available in times of trouble. ( Hebrews 13:5, Proverbs 18:24, John 16:7)

The Holy Spirit brings divinity (the life of God) into our natural. He is the super in our natural, making us live like gods here on earth. ( 1 Samuel 16:13).

He empowers us for our destiny and makes us a wonder, and enables us to fulfill the destiny of God in our lives. ( Isaiah 8:18, Luke 4:18, Joel 2:28, Zechariah 4:6)

He is the Spirit of truth who leads and guides us. ( Luke 3:21, Luke 4:1, Romans 8:11).

He is the author of the word and is responsible to ensure that the word of God manifests in our lives. ( 2 Timothy 3:16-17, Luke 1:35, John 14:26).

He takes the things of God and makes them a reality in our lives. ( John 16:15, Matthew 12:31, Ephesians 1:3, 1 corinthians 2:9-12).

He is the hand of God. The creator of all that God speaks forth in our lives. God speaks and the Holy Spirit manifests it. ( Genesis 1).

Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.

God created man to live by revelation. Not by His senses or knowledge. He was created to live by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit ( breath of God).

But there is a spirit in man, And the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding…Job 32:8

Man was intended to live by the Spirit of God.

When man fell he started living by knowledge, possessions, and material things. This reversed his understanding of what the blessing is.

The real blessing is not material possessions but a divine empowerment to prosper. ( Genesis 27:25-29).

The blessing man received from God was the very life of God in His Spirit ( what made him like God) that gave Him dominion over all things.

Genesis 1:26-27 Then God said, “Let Us make man in our image, according to our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His [own] image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

If you have the life of Jesus you are the most blessed person. It is the life of God, ( the Holy Spirit within you) that empowers you to prosper in this .

The Holy Spirit is the power of God to enable you prosper.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU. PASTOR BEN OCHOLA.
