The Holy Spirit is one spirit but diverse in operations. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of truth, boldness, obedience, revelation, excellence, “quickening spirit,” Godliness, and wisdom. In this last series, I will cover all other aspects of the subject of concentration that I have not covered in the previous series. Just in case you’ve missed any of the previous series, you check them out via these links:
The Spirit of Wisdom
The Holy Spirit is the spirit of wisdom and counsel. While wisdom is applied knowledge, counsel is the application of knowledge of the word of God in solving humans problems. Wisdom and counsel are from the same spiritual ecosystem. You need the wisdom to be stable in this hard and perilous time. Wisdom shall be the stability of thy times..(Isaiah.33:6). Here is what the wisdom Himself (Jesus) says:
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock (Mat.7:24).
Wisdom is knowing the right thing to do from the word of God and doing it. For instance, the scripture says, He that wins soul is wise (Prov.11:30), in other words, he that does not win soul is foolish.
The Quickening Spirit
You can’t be a vessel where the Holy Spirit lives and remain a victim of sickness and disease. The Holy Spirit renews and energizes our strength and strength, in turn, indicates long life. And one mystery about health and wholeness is that they engender wealth. According to this popular saying, “health is wealth.” Very correct. It takes strength, health, and vitality to command exploit in the wealthiest place of the highest.
But if the Spirit of him that raised Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you (Rom.8:11).
The Spirit of Obedience
The Holy Spirit is the spirit of obedience. I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them (Ez.36:27). Obedience is the pathway to all the blessings of God.
…Obedience is the pathway to all the blessings of God
You need the right key to open the right door, using the wrong key will lead to frustration and failure. The day you find the key is the day that the door will open. Obedience is the master key to overflowing blessings. Anything can fail in life, obedience to scriptural injunctions can never fail. You cannot be dedicated today and not be decorated tomorrow; your tomorrow is determined by the level of your obedience today. Let’s take a look at our perfect example (Jesus) from the scripture below:
And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross; wherefore God also hath highly exalted him and given him a name which is above every name (Philippians.2:7-8).
Understand this: the level of your greatness cannot supersede the level of your meekness. The meekest Moses was the greatest Moses. God demotes the proud and promotes the humbled.
Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth (Num.12:3).
And the Lord gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover, the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants, and the sight of the people (Ex.11:3).
A wise man once said, “If you kneel before God in total submission, you can stand in front of any man with authority.” (Pastor E.A Adeboye)
As I digress, Jesus was sent to be great, so also He sent you.
And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David (Luke.1:31-32).
Then said Jesus to them again, Peace is unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so, send I you (John20:21).
In the school of giving, for instance, obedience to the instruction of tithing is the pathway to supernatural prosperity. If your desire is power, subscribe to the demand of prayer and fasting. The service platform (stewardship) guarantees divine health, wholeness, and longevity with good old age. What you have is enough, if you can think enough.
Abraham’s tithing system was cooperative. To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all (Heb.7:2). And if you are children of Abraham, you will do the works of Abraham (John.8:39). The larger your heart for Christ the larger your coast of blessings. Where your heart is, is where your treasure is, your heart can’t be there and your treasure not be there. Prove your love for Christ by buying into the idea of delightsome giving (giving is the cardinal proof of love). For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son…(Jhn.3:16).
The scary thing is that you’re not cursed because you don’t give, you’re cursed because you don’t give delightfully:
Because thou served not the Lord thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things; therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the Lord shall send against thee, in hunger and thirst, and nakedness, and want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck until he has destroyed thee (Deu.28:47- 48).
Obey, Obey and obey. If you don’t want to die as a liability, start taking responsibility. it’s never too late. With the baptism of the Holy Spirit, obedience to scriptural instructions becomes very cheap (Ez.36:27).
His mother saith unto the servants, whatsoever he saith unto you, do it (Jhn.2:5).
The Spirit of Excellence
The Holy Spirit is the spirit of excellence. Every genuine child of God is an excellent child. When you’re empowered by the Holy Spirit you’ll begin to operate on Daniel’s frequency.
As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams (Dan.1:17).
And in all matters of wisdom and understanding that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm (Dan.1:20).
There is no divine content that can be grounded in life, divine contents are fit anywhere (the gospel of Jesus is a universal gospel, it works the same way anywhere, anytime, any day). You’re meant to be sought after, you’re the solution that the world needs. The entire world may lie in gross darkness, statesmen may be confused but the solution that the world needs is YOU. You’re the solution center, you’re the center of attraction. After the order of Daniel, you’re meant to appear before presidents of nations, showing them the way out of stagnation, frustration, and confusion (manifestations of darkness).
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee (Is.60:1-3).
Every authentic covenant child of God is a pacesetter. Whether you’re a student, businessman/woman, or career person, you have a place at the top only if you’re interested and care to pay the price.
And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail, and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearkens unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them (Deu.28:13).
Only Daniel has about five spirits. He has the spirit of wisdom, excellence, dissolving doubts, interpretation of dreams, and fear of God. Remember, greater than Daniel is here.
Forasmuch as an excellent spirit, and knowledge, and understanding, interpreting of dreams, and showing of hard sentences, and dissolving of doubts, were found in the same Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar: now let Daniel be called, and he will shew the interpretation (Dan.5:12).
In this final series, I’ve discussed the following:
- The spirit of wisdom: wisdom is the stability of this hard time. Its applied knowledge and counsel is the application of God’s words in solving humans’ problems.
- The quickening spirit: the Holy Spirit renews our strength and strength indicating health and long life.
- The spirit of obedience: obedience is the road to all the blessings of God.
- The spirit of excellence: every authentic child of God is an excellent child.
Friend, it’s crystal clear that the Holy Spirit is one of our most valuable assets. Just in case you have not been baptized by the Holy Ghost, learn more about Him, ask for Him in prayer (Jesus is the only giver), thirst and crave for Him and you shall receive Him – the Holy Spirit is “He” according to the scripture (John.14:26).
