THE HOLY SPIRIT, OUR ADVANTAGE!

Jul 15, 2021

Hebrews 10:23
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

You should holdfast your confession of faith because the enemy wants you to say otherwise!.

When man fell, he stepped from the realm of the Spirit into the dimension of carnality.
He had initially lived from inside-out but was now living from external stimuli.

He had always been directed and dominated by his spirit but was now dominated by his senses!.

Thank God for the cross. It brought us back home!.

It takes discipline, learning, focus and determination to live from your spirit!.
The pressure to draw direction and interpret life by the external stimuli is so strong on a man or woman who is born-again!.

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God…Romans 8:14

To manifest sonship in this kingdom, You must be led by the Holy Spirit.

If you are born-again, but don’t permit the Holy Spirit to guide, lead and direct you, you won’t be able to manifest the born-again life!.

Let the Holy Spirit govern your response to life and the way you do things. Do not be driven by the five senses (Carnality)!.

Many believers are casual because they are driven by the senses. No wonder very few manifest outstanding faith results in their lives. (1 Corinthians 3:1,3)

As we constantly press in towards God with open hearts, carnality is tuned out and our spiritual senses become enlighted!.

We must yield to the Holy Spirit and live from within to manifest His kingdom!

“Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:”… *Colossians 1:13

For this kingdom to find dominion and manifest in every place God has planted you, you must live from within!. The Holy Spirit must become the lead, guide and director of your life!.

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

Your advantage in this world is the Holy Spirit, not human intelligence, natural talent or giftings.

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us… 2 Corinthians 4:7

What the Holy Ghost produces through a man who is fully yielded to him can’t be matched by experience or any level of education!.

They were not able to resist the wisdom and the Spirit by which Steven spoke… Acts 6:10

There is a wisdom that is beyond human comprehension!. It will cause you to stand out but it only comes as you continually commune with the Holy Spirit within you!.

Let us not limit the working of the Holy Spirit to a prayer room and the healing of the sick.

Daniel and Joseph were not so educated but excelled and ruled in foreign lands as Prime Ministers. They were schooled by the Holy Spirit!.

Gen_41:38  And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?

Dan_5:11  There is a man in thy kingdom, in whom is the spirit of the holy gods;

Such dimensions are available in God only if we use the Holy Spirit as our advantage!.
Do not lean on the arm of flesh. All the help you need is in the Holy Spirit!.

Even Jesus could not begin His mission until the Holy Spirit had come upon him!.(Luke 4:1, 18-19). What makes you think you can engage in activities of eternity without the Holy Spirit’s help?

‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the Lord of hosts…Zechariah 4:6

We must go beyond quoting this scripture to practicing it!

Many of us turn to the Holy Ghost after failing. Many of the predicaments and catastrophes we have gone through could have been avoided. Let us permit the Holy Spirit to be and do what He is supposed to in our lives!.

Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner… John 5:19

If Jesus could do nothing on His own but leaned on the Holy Spirit, What about us?
That’s why there is no record of failure in His life!.

As long as you stay in the Holy Spirit, your light will never be hidden. You will always come out on top!.
Your advantage is in the Spirit, not in the head!.

Pay attention to the Ministry of the Holy Spirit. He was sent to us by the Father to help us fulfill the great commission!.

And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— John 14:15-16

Jesus Himself was a helper but here He promises us another helper.

The Holy Spirit is not an option to any believer who wants to shine for God!. Please be sensitive to Him!.

And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage and when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus said unto him, They have no wine…John 2:1-3

Mary knew something about Jesus that no body else at the wedding knew. Jesus had only been invited as a friend, not as a miracle worker but Mary engaged Him until they got a miracle!.

The fact that your filled with Holy Spirit does not always translate in Him helping you!. You must engage Him!.

Let us all learn to take advantage of the Holy Spirit in all aspects of our lives!

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