The Works and The Power of the Holy Spirit

THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND CONTROL OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

DECLARING THE WORD OF TRUTH.

THE POWER AND THE WORKS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT ON EARTH, IN THE CHURCH AND WITHIN A PERSON.

First of all we need to first understand the Holy Spirit who he is.
The Holy Spirit is a person and he is the medium communication of God, Jesus Christ uses to reach to us as believers to fulfill the purposes of God and this should be in accordance with God’s will. He is a guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to and the praise of his glory. Ephesians1; 14. Let’s look at the existence of the Holy Spirit because Christians have not understood the power and the authority of the Holy Spirit on earth, but from the beginning or the Genesis the precious Holy Spirit has been there, I mean from the creation, let’s look into the scripture

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, void; and the spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.Genesis1; 1-2.

This is indeed amazing that from the genesis of this world the spirit of God has been hovering over the face of the earth. Now the problem came about after the fall of Man, when Adam and eve sinned they died in Spirit therefore, we needed the Redeemer who could come with a very big call to make us see again and that big call came through one and the only son of God; Jesus Christ of Nazareth. And this was God’s Plan to reconcile back to him. This was fulfilled in the death and the resurrection of Jesus Christ, from the beginning authority of man had been taken from him by the Devil through their submission to the devil suggestion of eating the tree of life of knowledge to know good and evil. So God needed a big strategy through another man to bring back authority by destroying Death and this was achieved through Jesus Christ who manifested in the flesh and took a share in humanity, so the death and resurrection made so many things or brought so many things back to humanity;

• Authority was brought back through death and resurrection of Jesus Christ which destroyed the sin that Satan was using to control human kind, this is confirmed in Mathew28;18
Then Jesus Christ came to them and said “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the son and of the Holy Spirit.

This confirms to us that authority has been brought back through Christ Jesus and now he has given us that same authority and this can be confirmed in Luke10;19, therefore Authority restored back.

• The Holy Spirit was sent, from the scriptures we see that Jesus Christ promised the helper/counselor who is the Holy Spirit but he said that would happen if he goes away, and this is confirmed in John16;7-14

But I tell you the truth; it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. When he comes he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgement in regard to sin, because men do not believe in me; in regard to righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer and in regard to judgement, because the prince of this world now stands condemned. “I have much to say to you, more than you can bear. But when he, the spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will only speak what he hears and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will bring Glory to me by taking what is from mine and making it known to you. Wow what an amazing promise from Jesus Christ. Of course when heaven promises they fulfill and this was fulfilled in Acts at the coming of the Holy Spirit.

Now when the day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of rushing mighty wind, and filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire and one sat upon each of them and they were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues as the Holy Spirit, as the Holy Spirit gave them utterance.Acts2;1-4.

Now let’s go into the details of the Holy Spirit, indeed Jesus Christ fulfilled by sending the Holy Spirit he had promised in John14, the Holy Spirit since his coming, he came with great power and great works that we shall be looking at with the help of the scriptures. The problem now the church and people, the world has not understood the works and the power of the Holy Spirit. The reason is the world has not accepted him and does not know him; mostly the churches today has pushed him out of the church and have allowed the works of men doctrines and programs of men which has hindered the works of the Holy Spirit today.

The Holy Spirit imagine he has been given immense power to do God’s work through us but unfortunately the church has not yet known him nor understood his great works. But for in the early church he was great and did wonders using the Apostles because they allowed him in themselves and he used them to do great works.

Therefore if this generation today realizes the power of the Holy Spirit, they will do many great works they would not imagine because the Holy Spirit is limitless. it’s unfortunate the church today has not understood why the Holy Spirit was sent to us and Most of them today they have blasphemed him and he has departed from them, others have received but still because they continuously dwelt in sin, he has left them, and also some have received him yet they have not understood him and how he should work in them or for them. Still others have him but they don’t know his work and his power.

As the Christian faith spread throughout out the Roman and pagan worlds, the doctrine of the Holy Spirit came into question by some. They claimed the Holy Spirit was just the influence of God and not a person. One of the more vocal opponents was Arius, who taught the Holy Spirit was only the “exerted energy of God” realized in a created world, his view was rejected at the Council of Nicea in A.D. 325 [1] . The church at the Council of Nicea, proclaimed the following in response, in the Nicene Creed.
And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets. [2]
Controversies and confusion regarding the nature, work and person of the Holy Spirit continue to this very day. We see the active work of the Holy Spirit in the Old Testament, the Hebrew word for Spirit ixwr Ruwach meaning wind or breath. The wind like the Spirit of God, is an unseen and active in the world. He is referred to as the Spirit of God, or the Spirit of the Lord, My Spirit or just the Holy Spirit (Psalm 51:11, Isaiah 63:10,11).
In the New Testament, the Greek word for Spirit is pneu’ma Pneuma, which like the Hebrew is derived from the meaning of wind or breath. The Holy Spirit is also called to as the Comforter or Helper, translated from the Greek word, paravklhtoß Parakletos, meaning one who comes alongside to plead the case before the judge (John 14:16,26;15:26). He is also called the Spirit of Jesus (Phil. 1:19).

The Holy Spirit is God

Both Old and New Testaments testify to the divinity of the Holy Spirit, that He is not merely a force of God, but God Himself. A sampling of the many scriptures illustrates this point.
Old Testament

In the Old Testament times, the Spirit of God was active and selectively filled people, to accomplish the task. God’s Holy Spirit was involved in the creation of the universe; He gave prophetic utterances to the prophets and “filled” the Lord’s servants to accomplish the task at hand (Exodus 28:3, 31:3). Only through the Spirit of the Lord could Samson kill the charging Lion, the Spirit gave him this ability, empowering him, for God’s glory.
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. Genesis 1:2
So Samson went down to Timnah with his father and mother, and came to the vineyards of Timnah. Now to his surprise, a young lion came roaring against him. 6 And the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him, and he tore the lion apart as one would have torn apart a young goat, though he had nothing in his hand. But he did not tell his father or his mother what he had done. Judges 14:5-6

New Testament

In the New Testament, the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God, knows all things and dwells in those who believe.
But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, and the deep things of God. 11 For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. I Corinthians 2:10-11

The Holy Spirit dwelling in the Believer causes our very body to become the Temple of God, since God the Holy Spirit is dwelling there. Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? I Corinthians 3:16
If we strive to understand the Holy Spirit, and how God’s Spirit functions, we can become master sailors in the sea of life, powered by wind of God’s Spirit, rather than our own power and strength. Many Christians try to sail the ocean of life in their own strength and power, they miss the dynamic power of God Spirit, which is within every saved person.

WORKS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

1. Creating
The Spirit of God was with Father and the Son at the creation of the Universe, in Genesis 1:2, “the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters”. Verse 26, God says, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness;”. We are in the image of God, we have the characteristics of God, we create, we love, we have anger and we become jealous. God modeled us after Himself (Genesis 9:6).
When Adam and Eve fell, all mankind fell, though we were made in God’s image, our nature had become fallen. Darkness came upon all the descendents of humanity, God however promised the eventual redemption of humanity through the seed of the woman (Genesis 3:15-17), the Messiah.
The fallen nature of humanity is demonstrated before and after the flood, before the flood every thought of man was continually violent (Genesis 6:13), and after the flood, the descendents of humanity were corrupted again. God’s image, man is at conflict with God’s Spirit (Genesis 6:3) For this reason, God scattered humanity after the tower of Babel, throughout the earth. Our iniquities separated us from God, causing a separation between humanity and the Creator, without God man is completely lost.
God however put a plan of redemption in place, which involved the revealing work of God’s Holy Spirit, who through prophets, proclaimed God’s salvation to the nations.

2. Revealing/Revelation.

Following the fall, our ability to know and understand God, let alone ourselves was damaged and corrupt. Apart from God, we could not even know who we are, or where we came from. This “blindness” is demonstrated by the thousands of different theories and religions, which have developed over the millennia. How did we get here? Where are we going? Both science and religion attempt to find the answers to these questions. Did we come from nothing? Were we created by the Sun? Are we animals? The questions go on and on.
Only through God’s revelation of Himself, could we ever know who we are. Isaiah paints the picture of our lost condition, like blind men we grope along the walls. We are lost and without hope.

Therefore justice is far from us, nor does righteousness overtake us; We look for light, but there is darkness! For brightness, but we walk in blackness! 10 We grope for the wall like the blind, And we grope as if we had no eyes; We stumble at noonday as at twilight; We are as dead men in desolate places. Isaiah 59:9-10

God revealed Himself to us through His Spirit, who spoke through the prophets, Moses through the Spirit of God revealed God’s will to Israel (Numbers 11:17), the people through whom God would work Redemption for all humanity. For prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. 2 Peter 1:21. Without being aware of our condition, our need for redemption, and the provision for salvation, we would remain in the lost state. Not enough, we are still blind without the Holy Spirit’s light. The Holy Spirit leads a lost person to redemption, the Holy Spirit reveals the light, and leads us to it, so we can understand the Word. The Holy Spirit makes us understand our selves, before Jesus Christ came the world was full darkness and the blind were many, through him we have been able to know our selves that through the power of the Holy Spirit, we now know that we are children of God but before the Helper the precious Holy Spirit we did not know who we are. Holy Spirit is all powerful in his work because he shows us and reveals everything.

And my speech and preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this Age or of the Rulers of this age who are coming nothing. But we speak the wisdom of God in mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for Glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory,

But it is written “Eye has not seen nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love him. But God has revealed them to us through his Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes even the deep things of God. For what man would understand the things of a man except by his own spirit, Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the Spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we know the things that have been freely given to us by God. 1corrintians2; 6-12.

Now do you see what I am talking about without the Holy Spirit revealing who we are, we would not understand the right the heavenly Father has given us freely.

3. Redeeming
Before we can be redeemed, we need to know we need redemption. The problem for many, who rely on their own works, is they have a false sense of security. They don’t see their need of redemption, as far as they are concerned, they are not lost.

The Pharisees illustrate this point, being lost and not knowing it, since they relied on their own works and self-righteousness, they saw no need of redemption. Contrast this to the tax collectors and harlots; they knew they were lost, because their works did not blind them.

“Which of the two did the will of his father?” They said to Him, “The first.” Jesus said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you that tax collectors and harlots enter the kingdom of God before you. 32 “For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him; but tax collectors and harlots believed him; and when you saw it, you did not afterward relent and believe him. Matthew 21:31-32

The Holy Spirit has a two-fold part in redemption, first the Holy Spirit convicts us of sin, and then the Holy Spirit leads us to repentance of sins. We can’t repent if we don’t think we need repenting. In the same vain, we limit the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives, once we rely on our own righteousness.
Therefore when we rely on God’s righteousness and mercy, we are led to redemption, this occurs when the Holy Spirit dwells in us.

4. Establishment of God’s Kingdom in us
Once we realize we are lost, and need redemption, the Holy Spirit leads us to repentance, and salvation. Then the Holy Spirit takes up residence in our bodies, because we now have the righteousness of Christ. We are “Born Again” of the Spirit (John 3:3, 6, 8), our bodies are now the Temple of God, because God’s Holy Spirit dwells in us (I Cor. 3:17).

Now with God dwelling inside our earthly bodies, we have the power of the Holy Spirit; we no longer need to rely on our own power. We can now have victory over the flesh, because of the Holy Spirit dwelling in us.

So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God. But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. Romans 8:8-9.

Without the Holy Spirit dwelling in us, we are outside of Christ, we do not have His redemption, and we have only our works. With the Spirit, God gives us the ability to have our lives transformed. When the Holy Spirit has got residence in us because of no sin, he establishes the kingdom in us and builds the Temple of God and we are that temple of God. I always tell most Christians today that without the Holy Spirit, you are like the disco club, and its worse in the church today because they have no Holy Spirit to lead them rather they have shut down his power and made him depart by bringing the sin into the church, I.e. the works of men cannot be together with the Holy Spirit because the Holy Spirit has limitless power and he would want to stretch out and do all works that have been assigned to him by the Heavenly Father.

5. Transforming
When the Holy Spirit dwells in us, why are there different results with different people? After all isn’t God’s Spirit one? How can some people have remarkable transformations, while others struggle? For one, God does not force Himself on us, he requires us to respond with obedience, we need to yield ourselves to His Spirit. Without our yielding, we get in the way of the Spirit; we prevent God’s Spirit to work in our life.

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2 Cor. 3:18 our goal is to reflect Christ; we can only accomplish this when we yield to the transforming power of the Holy Spirit.

Therefore we are supposed to be transformed into the Heavenly body and walk in spirit not in the flesh. The problem this generation has understood the power of the Holy Spirit and why he was sent that’s why they are still struggling in the flesh and have continuously dwelt in Sin for a long time. Without the Holy Spirit you can transform because he is the spirit of truth who convicts the world of sin and leads you to repentance, therefore continuous sinning means the Holy Spirit does not dwell in you.
The result of the transformed life, which is yielded to the Holy Spirit, is a “Spirit filled” life. We have the choice to live a transformed life, filled by the Spirit or a life spiritual stagnation. God gives us the choice to yield to His Spirit or our spirit. .

But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. Against such there is no law. 24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Ephesians 5:18, 22-24

When we are led by the Spirit, our circumstances do not matter, the fruit of the Spirit is manifest in our lives. For example, Paul in Acts chapter 16, was beaten and put in prison, you might think Paul would feel sorry for him, and ask God how He could allow this to happen. Paul on the contrary is rejoicing in the prison, before he is set free.

23 And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely. 24 Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks. 25 But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Acts 16:23-25. The other prisoners listened and the jailer was saved, because the Spirit led Paul.

7. Overcoming
So if we are filled with Spirit, why do why do we still struggle? We are being perfected, not that we are perfect. We are in the process of transformation, day to day into the image of the glory of the Lord (2 Cor. 3:1). Those times we sin, because of anger, lust, pride, covetousness, hate, etc. etc., are times we choose to not yield to the Holy Spirit.

The Spirit gives us the ability to conquer the giants of sin in our life, just like Israel entering the Promised Land, ten spies saw the giants in the land and feared them, two spies, Caleb and Joshua saw the same giants, but knew the Lord was able. They walked in faith, and they alone from all those who left Egypt, 20-years and older were allowed to enter the Promised Land (Numbers 14:29-30). We are at war with the flesh; we have the choice yield to the Flesh or the Spirit.

For the flesh lusts against the Spirit and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. Galatians 5:17-21

After forty-years of wondering in wilderness, Israel was allowed to enter the Promised Land, led by Joshua. After defeating the city of Jericho, Israel was defeated at Ai, why? Because the disobedience of one man, Achan who willfully disobeyed God’s command Israel could not stand. Joshua mourned the defeat. God however, told Joshua to get up and deal with the sin committed by Israel. In the same way, like Joshua, the Holy Spirit gives us the ability to find our sins, and remove them. We cannot just mourn our sin, we need to act, we have the power. (Joshua 7)

Through prayer, and spiritual weapons, we have the power of the Spirit to overcome those areas in our life, which prevent us from “Fullness” of God’s Spirit. By developing a spiritual “Battle Plan” we can overcome the strongholds in our life, through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Since we reflect the glory of the Lord, we are being made into His image; the Holy Spirit gives us the ability to reach out, to the lost world. Jesus came from Heaven to earth to save the lost, like Christ, we are to reach the lost and hurting of this world. The Holy Spirit will give us the power to accomplish the Lord’s work, beyond our abilities, if we yield to His power.

8. Gifting
We are all unique individual souls, each one us has a purpose and a part of God’s eternal plan. When we come to Christ, the Holy Spirit is the down payment or guarantee of our Redemption (Eph. 1:14).
The Holy Spirit also equips the believer, giving each of us our own gifts, so we can accomplish the Lord’s work.

Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and none can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit. 4 There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. I Corinthians 12:3-5

The power and the gifts of the Holy Spirit, allow us to accomplish more than we would ever be able in the flesh. While the world looks at titles and pedigree, the Spirit looks at the heart, searching our real intents. When we are sincere, and pure before the Lord, we can walk in the power of the Lord.

9. Sending
Before Jesus was taken into Heaven, he told His disciples to wait in Jerusalem until they receive the Holy Spirit. What would the Holy Spirit allow them to do? Jesus said they would have power. Power for what? The Holy Spirit would give them power to “witness” about Jesus. Jesus is the focus of not only the New Testament, but the Old as well.

8″But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8

After we come to Christ, we have power, because God’s Holy Spirit is dwelling in us. God empowers us to take the Gospel (Good News) of Jesus to the ends of the world. All we need to do is yield to the power of the Holy Spirit.

We are all commissioned to deliver the Good News; we are in fact, commanded. The closer we are to the image of Christ, through the transforming power of the Spirit, the more clear the command is. The Spirit searches our hearts, and makes intercession according to the will of God (Romans 8:27), now the will of God is for us to reach the lost.
Let’s look at how the Holy Spirit sends Christians to preach the gospel and the word of God.

In the church at Antioch there were prophets and teachers; Barnabas, Simeon called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen (who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch) and Saul (who is called Paul).
While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting the Holy Spirit said; set apart for me Barnabas and Saul (Paul now) for the work to which I have called them. So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off. The two of them, sent on their way by the Holy Spirit, went down to Seleucia and sailed from there to Cyprus. Acts13; 1-4

The Holy Spirit gives us the power to accomplish, His will. In this case Christians are supposed to be taught in the spiritual school by himself the Holy Spirit and after they have known him and his power they can be sent to preach the word of truth spiritual revelation, unfortunately Christians today don’t understand that they are supposed to be trained by the Holy Spirit in order to first Know the Will of God is. That’s why people have remained in the works of the flesh today because they have never sent by the Holy Spirit, therefore there gospel is of the flesh no wonder, the gospel of prosperity rather than the proclamation of God’s Kingdom, that’s righteousness, Holiness and authority over sin. Now I can announce it that, though the Spirit of God is hovering over the face of the earth, the church has neither Holy Spirit nor its believers because if they had him they would know his works and his power.

10. Teleportation;
Teleport means to travel from one space/place to another at an instance; this is physical body literally being moved to a different location. Someone might ask himself that how can that be possible? Is that in the bible? Yes it is possible and we have many records in the bible where the Apostles like Philip was teleported by the Holy Spirit from one place and he found himself in another location. Also we have another example of Elijah and Jesus Christ himself teleported.

Example of Philip being teleported by the Spirit of God in the book of Acts;

Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the Eunuch said See here is water. And what hinders me from being baptized? Then Philip said “If you believe with all your heart, you may”. And he answered and said “I believe the Jesus Christ is the son of God”. So he commanded the chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and he baptized him. Now when they came up out of water, the Spirit of the Lord caught Philip away, so that the Eunuch saw him no more and he went his way rejoicing. But Philip was found at Azotus. And passing through, he preached in all cities till he came to Caesarea. Acts8; 36-40

Now do you see how Philip teleported it was not by own power but the Spirit of the Lord caught him away into other cities to preach the Gospel of Christ. Wow what great power the Holy Spirit.

Let’s see another example of teleportation of the Holy Spirit by Jesus Christ;

On the following day, when the people who were standing on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other boat there, except that which His disciples had entered, and that Jesus had not entered the boat with his disciples, but his disciples had gone away alone, however, the other boats came from Tiberas, near the place where they ate bread after the Lord had given thanks –when the people therefore saw Jesus was not there, nor his disciples, they also got into boats and came to Capernaum seeking Jesus . And when they had found him on the other side of the sea they said to him, Rabbi, when did you come here? John6;22-25

Honestly when you look at the story critically with the Help of the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ teleported because he did not go by any boat, because the disciples had gone with the only Boat on the other side of the sea in Capernaum, so these people were amazed at Jesus Christ how he came to the other side of the Sea yet he did not have any boat, the answer is the power of the Holy Spirit had carried him away and met the disciples there.
The problem with this generation is that they have not known the power of the Holy Spirit that’s why they are still in Despair and still blind and doing their own works rather than the Holy Spirit to do the works to fulfill the will of God.

11. Telepathy,
Telepathy means the supposed communication of thoughts or ideas by means other than the known senses. Or the ability to synchronize the informational processes within one’s mind to those of another individual. This form manifests as a form of direct mind to mind.
Now the sense which we know cannot do telepathy in some ones thoughts and tells you, rather this can be done by the power of the Holy Spirit only but Christians cannot know this can happen but it does happen and this comes with Faith In Christ Jesus, the Holy Spirit does what we think is impossible. Jesus Christ used the power of the Holy Spirit to do telepathy and this can be seen in many scriptures of John both with the Pharisees and his own disciples, Examples in the scriptures.

A little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me. Some of his disciples said to another does he mean by saying a little while you will see me no more and a little while you will see me because I am going to the Father? They kept asking” what does this mean by a little while; we don’t understand what he is saying.
Jesus saw that they wanted to ask him about this, so he said to them, are you asking one another what I meant by a little while you will see me no more and there after you will see me.John16;16-19.

You can see that Jesus Christ used the power of the Holy Spirit to telepathy or to read his disciples and saw what they thinking and bothered about so he told them, in the next scripture verse John16;20.
So if Christian be attentive to the Holy Spirit and accept him and understand he will do for them great works that they would not even know about.

12. Glorifying
We are in the process of transformation, we are not there yet, the Holy Spirit is the guarantee of the redemption to come (Eph. 1:14). We will one day be perfect and glorified in the image of Christ, restored from our fallen state. In the book of Revelation, we see the completed work of the Holy Spirit, when the New Jerusalem, the eternal home of the saved descends from the New Heaven and New Earth.

1Now I saw a new heaven and anew earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” 5 Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.” 6 And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 7 “He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be my son. Revelation 21:1-7

Having looked at the work of the Holy Spirit in the church. Now we are going to look at how the Holy Spirit speaks, controls and directs even so warning the people of the Living God to do his work and his will.

We all know that the Holy Spirit was given all the authority on earth to control all the spirits, infact the Holy Spirit is both in heaven and also on earth this can proved in the scriptures.

For there are three who bear witness in; the Father, the word and the Holy spirit, and three are one; there are three who bear witness on the earth; The spirit, the water and the blood, so these three are in agreement. 1John5;7-8’’ I think now we see the privilege the Holy spirit has both on earth and in heaven, he has all the authority on earth to control all things and all spirits on earth using the mighty power that has been given to him.

Question; how does he control?

When it comes to control, the Holy spirit can pull out any spirit from his place to another place for his own purpose and this how he does it, he controls Satan spirits, people’s spirits who are not upright and make them speak upon someone to bring out information by revealing the secrets and the plans of the devil either this is if the person is a devil agent, he can pullout the spirit of Satan and he brings upon another person who is upright, but you cannot use the power of the Holy Spirit unless you have the Holy spirit, so nobody should deceive you that you can use the holy spirit to control other spirits unless you have him. And an ordinary person who does not have the Holy-Spirit may not understand the works of the Holy Spirit, how he speaks, and his mighty power.

This is how the Holy Spirit controls, he pulls out any spirit of Satan’s Agent either who is not up right with the Living God, he brings his spirit upon someone who is upright and he reveals all the plans of the devil, he also reveals the people who go underground and are using the powers of the devil as pastors. But someone who doesn’t have the Holy Spirit will not understand the power of the holy-spirit, the works of the Holy Spirit, and how the Holy Spirit speaks.

When you have the Holy Spirit of God you can really understand the works of Satan, and his secrets and you will still know the false pastors because God can reveal all the secrets of Satan and his plans against God’s Kingdom or his Holy saints. That’s why it is written;

However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet no the wisdom of this age nor of the rulers of this age who are coming to nothing; but we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our Glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; For had they known, they wouldn’t have crucified the Lord of Glory. But it is written “Eye has not seen it. Nor ear has heard it nor has it entered into the heart of a man the things which God has prepared for those who love him. But God has revealed them to us through his Spirit. For the spirit searches all things, Yes the deep things of God. For what can a man know the things of a man except the spirit of Man which is in him? Even so no one can know the things of God except the spirit of God. The natural man doesn’t receive things of the spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him nor can he know them because they are spiritually discerned.’’

In demonstration about the works of the Holy-spirit, let’s look at an ordinary example of a simple shrine, normally when a person goes to a shrine to a witch doctor to seek help for his evil power deliverance and to find out what disturbs him, so at times that witch doctor can call upon evil spirits or demons to come upon that person then they start speaking through or on her and they give the information, but those demons are controlled by that witchdoctor who is the owner of that shrine, so the witch doctors can use the power of the evil to pull out the spirit of someone and they bring him in that shrines and he speaks but this cannot take a long time because if he delays with the spirit of a person in the shrine, either the other party can go mud, or becomes a foolish person without understanding because of delay, that’s why you see many Mad people in the cities, on streets or in the villages, it means his or her was taken out for ritual purpose and he was delayed and he gets mad or becomes a useless person.

In the same way the Holy-spirit, controls, and pull outs every spirit, from any person, Satan, and every evil spirit and brings it upon someone who is upright and make him speak. The difference here between the Holy-spirit, and the other spirit is that he controls all of them and when he pulls out the spirit of a person to reveal his secrets and of the Devil he will use him as long as he wants without any limitation and the person will not be affected in anyway. But as for the shrines when they pull out someone to use him for ritual powers and delays him for 30 minutes he will be affected by either becoming mad or losing his memory until that person is brought into real anointing where there is deliverance of the Holy-spirit.

All this means that the Holy-spirit has the divine power to control, deliver, direct, reveal, to work miracles, to pray, to preach, to do any kind of work as given by God. The holy-spirit is the medium for the Living God’s communication to his Holy and a righteous person, also Jesus Christ uses the medium of the Holy-spirit to reveal himself and his work. The glory of the Living God should be brought by the works of the Holy-spirit.

We shall look at some examples how God communicates through Holy-spirit to direct the church, to speak to his people, to warn the church against evil deeds practiced in the church, to please his righteous people, to guide, to encourage and fight for his people using holy-spirit. In other words, the Holy-spirit can pull out other people’s spirit at ago and they speak upon someone.

Below we shall look at an example of the Holy-spirit exercised by Pastor Hope of Rubaga Road Church who pulled out the spirit of Pastor Imelda Namutebi who deceive people that they serve the Living God and yet the holy-spirit will reveal all the secrets by using her spirit upon someone who also attends at Rubaga Road Church to know the secrets of the Devil and Devil Agents, how she got into the kingdom of Satan(Lucifer), how she got evil powers to bring the people and take people underground into Satan’s Kingdom including Pastor Kayanja Robert, Pastor Kayiwa, Pastor Manjeri Irene, Pastor Joseph Sserwadda, Pastor Yiga Abizayo, Kakande, Pr.Deo Maganjo, Pastor Ssozi, to mention just a few.

The Holy-Spirit of God brought her spirit and gave the world the whole truth about the false prophets and the plans of Lucifer,

We shall see below the video how the Holy-spirit pulls out Pr.Namutebi’s spirit and made her speak, this was done by PR.HOPE at Rubaga Road Church earlier in 2010

video coming soon to demonstrate

How the Living God use his Holy-spirit to direct, enables and warn the church and this is how it should be in the church that serves him in spirit and truth and who have accepted Jesus Christ as the supreme head of the church.

Firstly let’s look at the ancient days or in the old Testament and New testament’s examples to see how the Holy-Spirit directs, people of the Living God to perform his will and do his work.

Now the spirit of God came upon Azariah the son of Oded and he went out to meet Asa, and said to him” Hear me, Asa and all Judah and Benjamin. The lord is with you while you are with him. If you seek him, he will be found; but if you forsake him, he will forsake you.

For a long time Israel has been without a true God, without a teaching priest and without Law; but when in their trouble they turned to the lord of Israel and sought him, he was found by them. And in those times there was no peace to the one who neither went nor came to the who came in, but great turn moil was on all the inhabitants of the lands. So the nation was destroyed by the nation and city by city, for God troubled them with every adversity. But you be strong and do not let your hands be weak for your work shall be rewarded” and Asa heard these words and the prophecy of Oded the prophet, he took courage and removed the abominable idols from all the land of Judah and Benjamin and from cities which he had taken in the mountains the lord that was before vestibule of the Lord. 2nd Chronicles15; 1-

Now this is how God communicated and it also should be like that in this generation because God has never changed, the Holy-Spirit is still the same so it’s possible and still God communicates through his Holy-Spirit today. But today most churches (99.9%) have gone astray has and thrown the Holy-spirit from the church because of greed for money in the church, abominable things like women wearing trousers, miniskirts and other things which are detestable in God’s sight all the above are hated by God so his holy spirit cannot dwell in the church which has that kind of abominable things because they make God keep silent.

The Living God has now got his revival that must take on the gospel of truth to the entire world because these are end times and this gospel of truth has to reach everywhere in the world, so At Rubaga road church God has started his Revival that he will use to take his people to heaven and they are to spread to all corners of the earth for his truth and true gospel to be revealed.

From the above writing or scripture this is how or what should be in the church of Christ Jesus, for his holy spirit will manifest himself if the church is in order without abominable things in the holy place. This shows that if you still have abominable in things like women wearing trousers, men having plaiting hair, women in Miniskirts, idols, others powers of the devil brought to work miracles and all these the bible condemns so the Holy-spirit cannot dwell in that church for he is holy and he will not work in that church.

Dear brethrens do you see how you are living in destruction in the shrines you call churches, the reason is that the holy spirit of God, is not there, so they are not doing according to God’s will so this make every church that is not led by the Holy-spirit of the Devil. After looking at the example of the work of the Holy spirit who came upon Azariah to encourage Asa, when Asa realized that it was the Holy spirit who spoke through Azariah, he understood that God was speaking he was encouraged , he realized the mistakes Israel had brought in by allowing the abominable things like worshipping idols, Asheras which had kept God silent for Israel for a long time, after knowing all the mistakes he cut down all the idols and he was encouraged and directed by the Holy-spirit. In the same way if the church doesn’t have the Holy Spirit because of abominations God will never speak and you will infact never hear his voice.

Let’s look at how the Holy spirit directed the early church of the Apostles and how God manifested himself to his people in the church through his spirit to direct, to control, to send apostles in different places, to warn and lead the church and this was possible because the early church received and accepted the holy spirit work for them.

In the church at Antioch there were Prophets, and the teachers; Barnabas, Simeon called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen( who had been brought by with Herod the tetrarch), Paul( Saul).

While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting the Holy spirit said, “ set apart for me Barnabas and Paul(Saul) for the work to which I have called them, so after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off. The two of them sent on by the Holy Spirit, went down to Seleucia and sailed from there to Cyprus. Acts13; 1-4

Do you see the work of the Holy Spirit, this is how it should in the church today, because it is the power of the Holy Spirit to prophecise, to preach, to teach, to lead and direct the church. He is the controller of the all spirits in the church. We see how the holy spirit separated Paul and Barnabas and sent them to do the work God had called for them which means it should be the work of the holy-spirit of God to direct us in God’s work in order to do God’s will. But 99.9% of the church today have thrown out the works of the Holy-spirit because of abominable things they have allowed at the altar of the Living God, and have become the head of the church themselves by putting aside Jesus Christ as the Head of church, they have turned the church into business other than preaching the gospel of Christ which has authority over sin in other wards they have allowed the sin into the church which has led the holy spirit of God out of the church.

But the church today is contrary to the works of the Holy Spirit, instead Pastors today have called themselves, they have appointed their Assistant Pastors, they have appointed their own wives to enable them to do works the holy spirit, they have allowed routine programs of Men into the church, they also appoint preachers and pay them to go preach on streets, in the homes of people. But this kind of work is invalid in the church because these people are not chosen by God and are not led by the holy spirit of the Living God. This is a total loss to those who are working not called and sent by God.

The holy spirit was given to us to direct us, the church, guide us, to comfort us, and lead the church services and does all the deliverances but people without the holy spirit of God cannot know the works of the Holy spirit, his power, how he speaks but we know that he should lead in all generations and blessed are those who have received the holy spirit and uses the power of God and have kept him by doing righteousness of God for they have eternal life,

Because the bibles as they are led by the Holy Spirit are called the sons of God. Romans 8:14this also brings another point out that whoever doesn’t have the spirit of Christ is not of Christ and doesn’t belong to Christ. Romans8; 9.

Today Most Pastors are not God’s sent, some were called and have wandered away from the truth and are now serving Satan kingdom so these people have turned the church into Business, some have come to be Pastors because they have houses and have built churches but this doesn’t mean that they are on truth, but they continually strayed the church of Christ and have sold the church of Christ into the powers of the devil commonly known as Satan.

Dear brethrens in Christ Jesus it’s time now to know the truth and test the spirits, there’s a spirit of truth and a spirit of falsehood be careful because the false churches use the evil spirit who you may think as the Holy Spirit but it’s an evil spirit, all this while you have been deceived because there are so many false prophets. This is the time for the Revival the Living God to come up because God is not silent or sleeping, you shall know the truth and the truth will set you free. John8:32.

This is how you will know the church you are in is false and the pastor who is leading or heading is false , if you don’t jump this trap and escape the Hell or destruction you have been living in, you shall perish them because when the

When the Blind leads a blind they will both fall into apit. Mathew15:13-14’’. Because of this scripture your relatives have gone to hell and your families have gone into hell because of Ignorance.

To know your church is false, or your Pastor is false;

Read Psalms51 seven times

Psalms23 three times.

Psalms123 once.

Read John 14 and know about Jesus Christ needs from us and the promise of the Holy Spirit.

For seven times, mean seven spirits of God, they are written in Isaiah11;2

For three times mean; God the father, the son and the Holy Spirit.

But for the above scriptures to work for you, you must flee your church and stay at home and read the word of God from your homes and ask for God’s directions for the right church, he guide into all truth.

Otherwise today churches have been sold to the devil and are not doing God’s will as we know most pastors have appointed themselves , the churches are built on the powers of the devil so all this has annoyed God and his wrath is coming to soon.

That’s why the bible says that;

Not everyone who calls me Lord, lord will enter the Kingdom of heaven except he who does the will of my father in heaven. Many will say on that day Lord did we not heal in your name? Did we not prophecise in your name? Did we not cast out demons in your name? But I will tell them you evil doers go away.Mathew7; 21-22”

In conclusion;
The Holy Spirit has great power which he has been given and has great works to do which he was commissioned to finish in accordance with God’s will. Unfortunately the Christians today have understood his power that’s why the church is sleeping and individuals themselves are working but with no Holy Spirit of God which profits nothing and there will be no reward because the Holy Spirit is our deposit who pays us, who guarantees us heaven and without the Holy Spirit you cannot be raised from the dead, so you can there are so many things that Christians need to learn and bring the Holy Spirit works in the church who will enable them to victory, eternal life, to overcome, to deliverance, to healing and to do other greats works as he may feel, if given permission and assign him our Authority together with the Holy Spirit we shall do great works him and accomplish our Heavenly will and the work Jesus Christ has commissioned the church today.
If we have the Holy Spirit we don’t struggle and we cannot remain in sin because he will convict us to do repentance, but today he is constrained by the disobedience of the Christians to fulfill God’s work.

For the rest of eternity, we will enjoy the presence and blessing of God, today, we are only a shadow of what we will be. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we can choose to have a victorious Christian life, looking forward to the day of our redemption. We have God’s promise. Our fellowship lost at the fall will be restored.

MAY GOD THE FATHER AND JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH BLESS YOU AND GUIDE INTO WHOLE TRUTH. LET THE GRACE OF OUR LORD CHRIST JESUS BE UPON YOU FOREVER AMEN.
