As I am sitting here in the AC at our house on the Jersey Shore, the weather here has definitely turned hot! Today it is in the low 90’s, which to my OK friends is not that hot. I’ve seen your heat indexes over 105 degrees last week. So, as my wife Kim says to her Okie friends, turn the oven down to 75 for our arrival in 2 weeks.
The Working of the Holy Spirit
The Spirit of God, the Holy Ghost, the Holy Spirit are all talking about the 3rd person of the Godhead! He is a person and we are living in the dispensation of His work that Jesus talked about. That is why it is so important to know the Holy Spirit, how He moves, what His purposes are, and how He is to be involved in our lives today!
In Gen. 1:2, “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.” When we translate this out of the original Hebrew language, this hovering over the waters means like a chicken hovers over an egg to hatch it. In other words, the Spirit of God was just over the earth and in a mode over a vast planet that had no form and was empty.
Then as God spoke, His Spirit started creating whatever He spoke as it hovered over the earth. Today, according to the Word of God, whatever we speak that lines up with the Word of God, will create on the earth, whatever we need to have created, in order to do His will on the earth! Praise God!
What is coming out of your mouth? Are you creating God’s will or are you coming against His will? You are doing one or the other! Used properly in cooperation with His Spirit, we can create here in this life, whatever God needs, in order to reach people with His Word!
Jesus Sends Us the Holy Spirit
According to John 16:7, “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.” Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to the earth for us, so we could accomplish His will here!
See my friend, Jesus had limitations on His ministry here on the earth. One of His biggest limitations was He could only be in one place at one time. So, when He sent the Holy Spirit to the earth, He got rid of that limitation. Now He (the Spirit of God) could be everywhere on the earth at the same time. He got rid of the barrier of distance and time by sending the Holy Spirit to us. Can I get an Amen? Amen!
As I am writing this to you from the Jersey Shore, the Holy Spirit is not only here, but He is there with you as well. He is right now in China, He is under and above the earth. He is everywhere, all at the same time.
God challenged me years ago, to get to know His Spirit better than I can see people with my natural eye. In other words, to be spiritually minded and have a relationship with the Holy Spirit that transcends all of my natural relationships. It is my desire, to know Him, better than I can see you! Glory to God!
So let me encourage you today, spend time with His Spirit and watch your life change! There is nothing better, nothing more important, nothing more needed, than giving His Spirit your time! Build a relationship with the Holy Spirit! When you do, your life will never be the same! Miracles will be the most natural way for you to live as He shows you things to come (John 16:13).
