The Mystery Of The Holy Spirit – Series Two


the-mystery-holy-spirit-series-2

In the first series of this teaching we discussed that the Holy Spirit is one Spirit but diverse in operations:

Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit (1 Cor.12:4).

And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all (1. Cor.12:6)

For to one is given by the Spirit of the word of Wisdom; to another the world of knowledge by the same Spirit (1. Cor.12:8)

Part of the things we discussed last week was that the Holy spirit is the spirit of obedience, revelation, excellence, boldness, wisdom, “quickening-spirit,” etc. I also wrote that the subject matter “Holy Spirit” is hardly discussed but it’s one of the most essential subjects in the school of faith. However, today i will be discussing about the spirit of boldness and fear of God.

The Spirit of Boldness

The Holy spirit is the spirit of boldness, It takes boldness to get God to confirm His word. Peter who was a shaking reed before the Holy Spirit came, became Peter, “the rock” after the Holy Spirit has come. Before the Holy Spirit came, Peter could not move an ant, he denied Jesus three times because he was gripped by fear. When the Holy spirit arrived in Acts chapter 2, the giant in him awoke. On the day of Pentecost, Peter preached, about 3000 souls were converted at the spot. Boldness is the key word here, the mystery behind the explosion of miracles in the ministry of the Apostles was boldness facilitated by the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. They were preaching everywhere with confidence and God was confirming His word with signs and wonders (Acts.4:13).

Clarification About Speaking In Tongues

Speaking in tongues and boldness are the only evidences of the baptism of the Holy Spirit found in the scripture (not rolling on the floor as many have perceived). In most cases, those who roll on the floor are this who need deliverance from demonic spirits. Speaking in tongues is not nonsense (as many erroneously believe), it’s speaking mysteries. The devil is confused when you speak in an unknown tongue. It is a good way to outsmart the enemy and build a robust faith.

But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, (Jude.1:20).

The Spirit of The Fear of God

While sin inflicts fear, the fear of God instils boldness. Adam sinned and the first statement he made was “I’m afraid.” The scripture says: the wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous is as bold as lion (Proverbs.28:1).

For instance, assuming that you fornicated last night or let’s say you robbed a bank (God forbid), the following day you went to a church and the preacher asked that if there were fornicators or armed robbers who robbed or fornicated last night should raise up their hands. How many of you reading this would raise hands up in this kind of scenario? Definitely not because you would be afraid. Free yourself from the dungeon of fear by embracing godly living.

Every time you disobey, you’re selling off your birthright, your birth right is too precious, don’t sell it off. The spirit of the fear of God is also known as the spirit of the holy gods. This is one of the spirits found in Daniel.

O Belteshazzar, master of the magicians, because i know that the spirit of the holy gods is in thee, and no secret troubleth thee, tell me the visions of my dream that i have seen, and the interpretation thereof (Daniel.4:9)

Benefits Of Having Spirit Of The Fear Of God

At this point, I will like to emphasis more on benefits of the fear of God – also known as the Spirit of godliness. Where your fear for God stops is where your greatness stops. The level of your greatness cannot supersede the level of your godliness. The journey to your greatness begins with the godliness.

Because Joseph could already saw himself on the throne, he would not allow his destiny to be trashed in Portiphar’s house. He knew where he was going; he knew that Portiphar’s house was only a passage. So, he packaged himself dangerously so that his destiny would not be truncated. He was in the prison, he was like a reigning king in his mind (You can’t have where you are going and not package yourself to get there). Daniel would rather die than to defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat (Dan.1:8); same Daniel was relevant all through the reign of six kings.

But Daniel Purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank; therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself (Daniel.1:8).

Hear this: your tomorrow is determined by the level of your righteousness today. There is this common saying that goes as thus: “if you cannot beat them, join them.” This is a satanic statement, You can’t beat them by joining them, you’ll remain under them. Choose to be different. As a genuine Christian, you don’t belong to the world of bribery and corruption.

Wealth gotten by vanity will diminish with time but he that gather by labour shall increase. Clean prosperity is your covenant right in Christ. It is the blessings of the lord that maketh rich and add no sorrow with it. The fear of God is the gateway to supernatural wealth and flourished business. There are many sicked businesses and business owners today that need the treatment of righteousness. I have been young, and now am old; yet have i not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread (Psalm.37:25).

psalm-chapter-one-verse-one-three

The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon (Psalm 92:12)

Therefore brethren, here is the truth: The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the holy is understanding (Proverbs.9:10). Those who take God for granted are grounded in life. Don’t be bigger than God. Sin ruptured the link between man and God, Man, God’s favourite, became the devil’s meat. Thank God for Jesus who has redeemed us. To maintain the right connection with God with a constant flow of overflowing blessings, The fear of God is a MUST.

So far, i have discussed about:

  • The Holy Spirit is one spirit but diverse in operations.
  • Speaking in tongues is not chanting nonsense, It’s speaking mysteries that edify oneself, church and help us to pray according to the will of God. Also to build our faith.
  • The Spirit of Boldness (it takes boldness to get God to confirm His word).
  • The Spirit of the Fear of God also known as the Spirit of the Holy God – the journey to your greatness begins with fear of God.
  • Benefits of the fear of God (supernatural wealth, flourished business, greatness, and many more).

Experience Is Not Your Best Teacher


Experience Is Not Your Best Teacher

Experience is not your best teacher. The Holy Spirit is your best teacher. You don’t learn by experience; but you learn by revelation. You make the most of our life by rhema.

Don’t waste your life pursuing after mere money. Pursue light instead, and money will follow. It’s the quality of your light that determines the quality of your life and the word of God is the carrier of the light of God. The more you’re word loaded, the more you’re likely to make the most of your life.

The entrance of the word giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple (Psm.119:130).

Life is a lifetime. Time not well managed will be wasted & energy level diminishes with age. Timely discovered purpose is the master key to a fulfilled destiny.

Light is light. It doesn’t matter where you got it from. In most cases, we get our light through the light of others.

For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light. (Psm.36:9)

Don’t be arrogant. The level of your meekness cannot supersede the level of your greatness. The meekest Moses was also the greatest Moses in the land of Egypt.

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 favour 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 in the sight of the people (Ex.11:3).

How To Pursue Light

  • Find people who are in light (you don’t have to know them personally).
  • Collect their materials and study them.
  • Apply and follow the same steps they followed.

Prove Your Humility In

Prayer

The highest form of arrogance is living without praying while the highest form of humility is to seek God in prayer (it shows that you’re humble enough to ask help for God). Don’t be bigger than God. He promotes the humble and demotes the proud. He is the lifter and builder of men.

Promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another. (Psalms.75:7)

He can’t entrust His secret to you than the level of your meekness. The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his ways. (Psm.25:9).

Anybody that can eat and talk can pray. It’s “all men” ought to pray and not to faint; not “all christian-bloggers.” (Luke18:1).

And As He Prayed, The Fashion Of His Countenance Was Altered, And His Raiment Was White And Glistering

Fainting in prayer connotes failing in life. A prayer house is a power house. You can’t lose your voice in prayer and not have a voice in your world. The world will listen to you when you speak. Prayer does not only change things; it changes people.

Prove Your Love By Obeying

It’s not the word that enters you that works but the word that you enter. The body of Christ needs to start talking about our entrance into the word.

But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your ownselves (James.1:22).

Lion is not the greatest animal; sheep is the greatest animal. Because, according to the scripture, “the young lion may suffer and lack.” (PS.34:10). But the sheep will not have to fend for themselves.

Your Journey To Greatness Begins With Obedience

The journey to your greatness begins with obedience. You can’t obey today and not be great tomorrow. Jesus who is our perfect example obeyed God till He died on the cross (He was on the cross & still doing evangelism, ah!) and as a result, God gave Him a name that is above all other names (Phil.2:8 – 9).

The word that enters you holds no value for anyone but the word that you dive into that will produce results anyday, anytime, anywhere.

The Holy Spirit Teaches All Things

Experience is not your best teacher but the Holy Spirit. Let the Holy spirit leads you. What you don’t know, things in your past, present and future will be revealed to you by the Holy Spirit. As a result, you don’t have to go through trauma to learn anything. By the infilling of the Holy Spirit you will escape such horrendous experience.

I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. [13] Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come (John.16:12-13).

Final Thoughts

Revelation is the king. Education without revelation is incomplete. That doesn’t mean that education is bad but people who have education also need revelation to make the most of their lives. Get access to revelation by:

  • Having a close proximity with God & running a consistent prayer life.
  • Thirsting & asking for the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
  • Praying in the Holy Ghost.
  • Walking in Obedience.
  • Engaging in a praise lifestyle.
  • Being sensitive to the nudges & voices of the spirit
  • Submitting to the lead of the spirit.

On thing about the God is that He doesn’t speaks to a deaf ear, if He tells you to do one thing, as crazy as it may look but you refuse; He will not tell you the next thing to do. One step after the other, that is how the spirit leads. Brick by brick Rome was built.

I pray that 2020 will be far better than 2019 for all of us. Happy new year in advance. God bless you💜
