Who Is The Holy Spirit?

Who Is The Holy Spirit?

Sunday Message Summary, 14 March 2021

Who is the Holy Spirit? The Holy Spirit is power. The Holy Spirit gives us divine power to cause dynamic activity and make change in our lives. Every miracle that Christ performed while on Earth was empowered by the Holy Spirit. If the Holy Spirit could use Moses’ rod, which was essentially mere dead wood, to part the Red Sea (Exodus 14), how much more can His power do with us who have Him within us? When we doubt ourselves, we doubt the Holy Spirit within us. As children of GOD, we can do nothing without the Holy Spirit, for we have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer us who live, but Christ lives in us (Galatians 2:20). We should therefore never underestimate ourselves, thereby underestimating the power of the Holy Spirit.

The humble Person of the Holy Spirit is the gentle breeze that we cannot see who comes to live in us. Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 3:16-17), so GOD is in contact with us all the time, and we need to take care and nurture this temple, taking the Word of God to put it into practice. We should examine our lives because if we are still harbouring anger, unforgiveness and bitterness, where is place for the Holy Spirit? We can become an obstacle for the Holy Spirit to work in, with and through us if our hearts are not right. Furthermore, when we have sickness and disease in our bodies, we should use the authority that we have been given us to enforce that nothing of Satan belongs in the temple of the Holy Spirit.

Why do we need the Holy Spirit? The Holy Spirit is our Comforter, He leads us, He protects us from all evil, and He is the Mouthpiece of GOD. The Holy Spirit knows us better than we know ourselves. We should never be complaining but should live a joyful life because when the Holy Spirit came into us, He brought the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23), which are the qualities of GOD. When we have the Holy Spirit living in us, there should be a transformation. We are a new creation, and therefore should be changed, because if we want to be Christian, we should be Christ-like. We must therefore look at our relationship with GOD because the Holy Spirit has come here to take charge of our lives, but we miss Him and all that He is for us when we do not acknowledge Him.

We can do nothing without the Holy Spirit, for we have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer us who live but Christ lives in us.
