‘Welcome Holy Spirit!’

images-5

Hello again children of God.. I trust you are enjoying the manifestation of Gods power in your life!! .. Today I’d like to introduce you to someone that we have not yet spoken of, someone that we all need!. His name is the Holy Spirit.

Genesis 1: 1 -2

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 

As we read this scripture, we see that the Holy Spirit was in the beginning when God created the earth. And if we look at John 1 :1 it says:

John1:1

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

So we can now see that the word was also in the beginning when God created the earth . And who is the Word? Lets go to :

John1:14 

” And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”.

The Word is Jesus Christ, for He was made flesh and is the only begotten son of God. Now lets go back to our opening scripture, in Genesis 1:1-2 , it says that “in the beginning the earth was without form and void”, which means there was nothing on the earth. But it says that the Spirit of God (Holy Spirit) moved upon the face of the deep and if we look at

Genesis 1:3 it says :

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light! 

The Holy Spirit and the Word, Jesus Christ caused the light to appear. We can now see from reading the scriptures, that the Holy Spirit makes things to move, brings things alive together with the Word Of God .

John 4:24 it says :

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

The truth here is the Word of God , Jesus Christ in  John 14:6 it says : ” for I am the way, the truth and the life “. So we can see that the Holy Spirit and the Word works hand in hand. You can’t have the Word of God without the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit without the Word of God. Without each other they are dormant, ineffective and dead! The Holy Spirit is the One that causes Gods divine power to manifest. So we need the ‘Holy Spirit’. Previously when we learnt about Now Faith , speaking in the Now Faith declaring that ” I am rich ,I am healed”. It is the Holy Spirit that is the One, who brings to life the words that we speak through Faith.

Lets go now into more detail of who the Holy Spirit is, and what He can do in our lives….

Remember our previous scripture that we looked at, concerning Now Faith , where in Romans 8:6  it talks about being spiritually minded and carnal minded. I then gave you a verse that tells us that God is Spirit.

2 Corinthians 3:17

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 

We can now already see that God is Spirit. So that tell us that the Holy Spirit is a person, He is apart of God . He has a personality and we need Him for our lives to change! If He is apart of God then He has a personality of God , He has the character of Christ.

John 14:26

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Wow so when Jesus Christ was leaving, He told his disciples that they must not worry because the Holy Spirit will come in His name and will remind them all that He taught them. So what is Jesus Christ saying here? He is saying that the Holy Spirit will take His place, which means the Holy Spirit will do what Jesus Christ did. Which is teaching us to prophesy, heal the sick, casting out demons and performing miracles.

How many of us want to prophesy, cause miracle money to appear, bring that dead business alive?!! … I’m sure all of us do!! Well here is the good news, we can do what Jesus Christ did!! The Holy Spirit is our ingredient, His our helper ..

Acts 2:17

And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.

Look what the scripture says, it is saying on ‘all people ‘ which means not on some but on all flesh God has poured his Spirit (Holy Spirit) . And all of us shall dream dreams and prophesy. Isn’t that amazing?!!! Now we can see how important the Holy Spirit is and why we need to have a relationship with Him.

Let’s look at the Gifts of the Holy Spirit:

1 Corinthains 12:8-11

For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

Wow wouldn’t you love to pray more than an hour or speak in tongues and interpret tongues, to be able to touch that man or woman on the streets and immediately their life changes, to bring that man out of a drug addiction?! I would !!. And with the Holy Spirit in us we can , but we need to build a relationship with Him. We need to spend time with Him just as in the same way we need to study the Bible (Word of God) to know God. We need to invite Him in our everyday  life. When the Holy Spirit came upon Mary for Jesus Christ to be born, Mathew 1:18, there was nothing in Mary’s body for her to conceive. But when the Holy Spirit came upon her , He caused her to give birth to our Savior Jesus Christ. Oh how much more will the Holy Spirit do to that marriage that is dead, that business that is not moving , your spiritual life that dormant, dead!! The Holy Spirit changes Lives , the Holy Spirit causes things that are not working to work. Without the presence of the Holy Spirit, the Word of God can not come alive . The Holy Spirit does the work of God . He causes you to walk in dominion, when you receive the Holy Spirit you will do things that you never thought you could do!!!!..

As you receive the Holy Spirit Prophesy to that business that is not moving, believe that you can heal that person from sickness. And you will start to see your life be filled with the Power of God .. 

Hallelujah enjoy living in Gods power!!!!!!

‘Living Faith’

strong-faith-Copy

Beloved hope you enjoying this ride with me on the adventure of Faith Revival. There was something I read in the Word the other day, I came across Now Faith. I would like to share this with you. We are now going to go on the journey of looking at what kind of Faith we need….

Lets start with reading : Romans 8:6

For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

To understand this, lets reflect on what we have learnt so far. We started off by speaking about What is Faith then we learnt how to apply Faith by allowing Jesus Christ present in our life. As we see that Jesus Christ is the author & finisher of our Faith . OK so now we know what is Faith and how we can apply it and have Faith. Lets go back to our opening scripture Romans 8:6, the scripture talks about being carnally minded and spiritually minded. Now in order for us to know if we are spiritually minded and carnally minded , we need to look at what it means to be spiritually minded and carnally minded…

Hebrews 11 :1

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

From reading this scripture we can see that having Faith is being in the spiritual. How do we know this? Because it says that Faith is the substance of things hoped for and evidence of things unseen. Faith is believing in things that you cant see in the physical. It is walking in the spirit. So having Faith in God is to be spiritually minded and people who don’t have Faith in God are carnally minded, you live in flesh. This is not of God , He is spirit and works in the spirit .

2 Corinthians 3:17

Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 

This means God is not flesh, He does not work according to the flesh but in the spirit. So if He is spirit we are spirit, because the bible says we are made in his image, therefore we must act in the spirit. To be carnally minded (think in the flesh) is against God that is why in Romans 8:6 it says : ” To be Carnally minded is death” . Living in the flesh causes lack of peace, you are always focusing, believing on the things that are tangible (things that are touchable) rather then believing in the promises God has given you. Now lets move on to the deeper part of the scripture, Hope you are still with me!!! ….

In Romans 8:6 after God tells us about being carnally minded He starts to tell us, in detail what the answer to Life is. He says “To be spiritually minded is Life and Peace” . The Peace God is talking about here, is ‘contentment’ , being filled with joy no matter what situation, circumstance or challenge you are going through. You have Peace, you are content because you know that all things that God has promised are available to you Now!!

This is when you are activating the Now Faith. This is one of the greatest thing to have as a child of God. This is when you see that being a child of God is really being in favor everyday. You may ask What is Now Faith?? .. Now Faith is to bring the promises of God to Life, it is to address them and speak of them in the ‘NOW’! Not in the future but in the Present. Because that is what activates the promises of God to happen in you life. NOW FAITH is what brings things to life, because by applying Now Faith, you are already envisioning yourself  living in that reality that you desire, (that mansion, marriage, business, prosperity)  you are believing that the promise of God has already come to pass .  And as a result of Now Faith you will see yourself living in the instant reality of what the word of God says! Because in Heaven things already are are! So why not in you Life?! If it is available and it already exists in Heaven, then the type of Faith we must operate in is the NOW FAITH!!

now_faith

Now Faith is aligning your mind with the present reality of Heaven! Now Faith makes you confidently restful, when others are panicking you are rejoicing!! It is looking at your pocket that is empty and saying my pocket is FULL , my business is moving, my ministry is growing, I AM RICH , I AM STRONG..

Psalm 28:7

The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.

Now Faith is removing the reality of what we see with our eyes and replacing it with the heavenly reality. So the only effective Faith one can have is the Now Faith. Now Faith is bringing things alive that was dead or stagnant  in your life. Because things in the spirit are given Now and are available Now!.. Remember what Romans 8:6 says “To be spiritually minded is Life” . So walk in the Now reality! Walk in the Now Faith. By walking in the Now Faith you are living according to the will of God. That is why Jesus says in Mathew 17:20 , that” if you have Faith and you tell that mountain (problem) to move it shall be removed”. So it is the will of God for you to live in Now Faith.

That job you been looking for, that business that has been dead for many years, that ministry that is not growing , start to Confess NOW that you are Rich , you are FAVORED because the word of God says:

Proverbs 10:22

The blessing of the LORD, it makes rich, and he adds no sorrow with it.

HALLELUJAH!!! …….

Starting from today begin to live in the Heavenly Realm of God!!!!!

 

What is Faith?

Before we can go on our journey on reviving our faith, We need to understand what is Faith?

In Hebrews 11:1  it says “Now faith, is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”. What does this mean? This means faith is not seeing, it is things that are hoped for before seeing the manifestation. It is believing in things that the eye naturally cannot see, and it brings that Hope into manifestation.Whatever the translation , faith deals with the activity of the Spirit realm. e.g. When a woman is single for many years, but by faith she believes she will be happily married. She has not met the guy, she doesn’t have a ring on her finger but by faith she believes she will meet the man of her dreams and be married to him. Now because of her faith (strong belief) she receives that marriage.

In Mathew 8:5-13 , it tells a story of a Centurion who had mighty faith. First he calls out to Jesus and tells him that his servant is paralyzed. Jesus asks him, shall I come and heal him? and the centurion says “No my Lord I do not deserve for you to come under my roof, but just say the word and my servant will be healed. Now first of all it is unusual in that the centurion actually prevents Jesus from coming to his home. Would you turn down an opportunity to entertain Jesus at your house? But when this man did, he had this mighty faith that Jesus does not even need to touch his servant. All he needs is Jesus to say a word and it shall happen. The Centurion believed that there is healing power in every word that Jesus speaks. He had that mighty faith (strong belief) and because of his faith his servant was healed. Praise the Lord!!

Faith is a trust. It is trusting in our Lord and Savior, that no matter what situation you are going through, He is able to turn it around. Nothing is impossible to God  Mathew 19:26, without faith(belief) nothing can be done. Faith is a gift from God, faith gives you power, the ability to endure and overcome your hardships and tests. Faith in Jesus is made up of two realities, God and his Word. When you read and hear the word of God your faith grows. We cannot receive anything from God, if we do not believe that He  is able to provide for our needs. Faith does not doubt! It is sure!  Hebrews 11:6.

So you see beloved, we need faith to live a life full of God’s promises. It says in John 3:16, “God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. ” Which means that whoever has faith in Jesus Christ, you will have a life of joy (victory) . Faith gives us the ability to see beyond what is happening around us . We need to walk by faith and not by sight 2 Corinthians 5:7.

So who’s ready to fight this good fight of faith!!
