The Holy Spirit is the executor consummator of the Godhead: This person of the Holy Trinity also called "the Comforter" by Jesus Christ. He is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. The human body is His temple but He must be invited to indwell in us.
God is the source of all power and all things. Jesus is the Word the Wisdom and the power of God and the only way to Him.
The Holy Spirit is to lead a child of God into all truth. He shows how the Holy Word applies to our daily living. He makes Jesus a living and breathing reality every minute and hour of the day. Without the Holy Spirit, one is unable to accomplish God’s eternal purpose for his life. Jesus is the right hand of the Father, waiting to shed forth His great gift for His bride, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit for the power, love, and boldness to accomplish the Father's will.
The Holy Spirit is powerful He:
Creates comforts, renews, give joy, convicts us of sin, gives discernment, baptizes us, bears fruit, guides us, anoints us, empowers us for life, teaches us, sanctifies us for the father, makes intercession for us, bears witness for us, reveals to us things of God, and illuminate our minds.
The Gift of the Holy Spirit has a fourfold purpose:
- The control of the whole person, the Holy Spirit controls the tongue to the extent of using it to speak an unlearned language, certainly indicates complete surrender. Jesus did not speak in tongue at His baptism because He is the author of languages and His tongue was never unruly, He spoke the truth.
- The Holy Spirit for a sign, (1 Corinthians 14:22) multitudes came to hear the preaching of the gospel for they heard the language of tongues.
- The Holy Spirit speaks to God, it is not mentioned that they all spoke in known tongues or that they spoke in tongues all of the time or just when the crowd gathered. There is no way that speaking unto God can be wrong, or evil, or from the devil! Jesus is the Baptizer, speaking in tongues was His choice, not man’s and to reject or despise this is to reject and despise Jesus Christ's gift for His bride. The Holy Spirit has used the human mouth to speak through during the Old Testament period in the Language of God speaking as a spirit in the individual speaking to God. He is the author of Language, not the devil. He gave Adam a language; He separated the people at Babel; at Pentecost, He united the people again with tongues and He will give every inhabitant of heaven a new language that will be spoken and understood by all immediately.
- The Holy Spirit is edification. God’s child is surrounded by sin, sinners, temptations, trials, and the fiery darts of the adversary, this is one reason why we need the Holy Spirit, to protect us. The human body and mind with the Holy Spirit's help should be able to withstand. Paul said, “I then my God, I speak with tongues more than you all, “and he withstood the most persecution (2 Corinthians 12:10)
The Holy Spirit and having the gift of speaking in tongues it the wonderful works of the Lord.
Father, I accept Your Word and purpose, the will of God within my inner self, without rejection of the Holy scriptures, and I pray to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit which is the promise to me and my children and them that are far away and as many as the Lord our God invites and bids to come to Him. In Jesus Name AMEN
