THE MINISTRY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT!!

Jul 15, 2021

The earth was without form and void, and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters….Genesis 1:2

Amid the chaos and confusion, the Holy Spirit was hovering over the surface of the earth!.

And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. … Revelation 22:17

From Genesis (the beginning) to Revelation (End), the Holy Spirit was working. He rested upon men and women, enabling them to demonstrate and reveal God to their generations!.

The transformations, encounters, and guidances in the old testament were all by the Holy Spirit!.

Throughout the old testament, Jesus’s coming was prophecied about. He existed then as the Word. John 1:1

The angel said to Mary, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God….Luke 1:35

When the prophecy of Christ was to be fulfilled, it took God, man, and the Holy Spirit to manifest it.

Every prophecy, word, and vision that God has given will take the Holy Spirit and us (you in particular) to bring it into manifestation!.

Without the ministry of the Holy Spirit, prophecies are never experienced. All the promises that were accomplished through the death of Christ remain theological knowledge but never a practical experience!.

Unfortunately, the body of Christ has reduced the ministry of the Holy Spirit to only prayer yet He is the agent that manifests the revealed and spoken word of God!.

When we embrace His ministry in a more understanding way, we see greater manifestations of His glory!.

When Jesus was baptized; while He prayed, the heaven was opened. And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven which said, “You are My beloved Son; in You, I am well pleased.”Now Jesus began His ministry at about thirty years of age, Luke 3:21-23

Jesus couldn’t fulfill divine destiny without the dressing of the Holy Spirit!. You can’t fulfill divine destiny outside the environment of the Holy Spirit!.

Ephesians 5:18… but be filled with the Spirit,

Being filled means having a daily encounter with the Holy Spirit.
It is not a one-time experience. It is a continuous experience!.

God has given us an agenda, purpose, and design regarding our lives but it takes the ministry of the Holy Spirit to discover and accomplish them!.

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

Everything about our lives has been scripted. Psalms 139
The Father scripted our lives and we are just acting them out!.

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

Our lives have been pre-arranged. That’s why none of us can fulfill destiny without the help of the Holy Spirit. He is the helper that has been sent to help us fulfill our destinies!.

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 of the fear of the Lord…. Isaiah 11:2

The Holy Spirit gives wisdom beyond what any University or College can give!. Because of the Holy Spirit, no born-again believer is disadvantaged!

The key to our success leans on understanding the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Let us endeavor to know and embrace His ministry!.

But we all, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord… 2 Corinthians 3:18

He is the agent of transformation.

“It is finished!” … John 19:30

It is the role of the Holy Spirit to manifest what the Lord Jesus accomplished for us on the cross!.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, … Ephesians 1:3

All the blessings; Salvation, healing, wealth only become physical realities by the ministry of the Holy Spirit!.

Outside the ministry of the Holy Spirit, we are bankrupt.

“ And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication;.. Zechariah 12:10

Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. … Romans 8:26-27.

The Holy Spirit is the general of prayer. He helps us in making intercession!.

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

Our Christian lives are simplified by the help of the Holy Spirit.
He is the helper we need in whatever area we are challenged in!.

Please don’t ignore, quench, or grieve Him!
He is a gentleman. When we grieve Him, He quietly departs.

Please listen to and pray along with this audio. It will help you to learn more and yield to the ministry of the Holy Spirit!

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVOURED, *PASTOR BEN OCHOLA!.
