Today we continue to look at the Holy Spirit as Another Helper.
He helps you to minister the Gospel and testify the Lord Jesus with fire. Without the presence of the Holy Spirit you can never bring the Living Jesus to others but only historical Jesus.
“But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me,” John 15:26 (NKJV)
Another way the Holy Spirit helps you is correcting you when you do wrong from within your heart.
The sign that you are led by the Holy Spirit is the lack of peace in your soul when you commit any sin. He convicts you. Again you know that He is absent when you enjoy sin and feel highly in doing evil.
The Holy Ghost makes you hate sin and love righteousness in Christ Jesus.
The Lord Holy Spirit will show you that every action awaits its judgment tomorrow.
There is nothing that is not judged after this life. The Lord Holy Spirit will show your tomorrow in every action and you start being driven by eternal perspective.
“And when He comes, He will convict and convince the world and bring demonstration to it about sin and about righteousness (uprightness of heart and right standing with God) and about judgment,” John 16:8.
The Lord Holy Spirit as the Helper is well articulated in this verse from the Amplified Bible. He is the Helper or Comforter, to give you peace and comfort in any turmoil on earth.
He is the counselor, to give you counsel if you really need the mind of God before making a step ahead. He is the advocate, who speaks and stands by you, supporting you in every way of your life if you ask Him.
The Holy Spirit is your committed intercessor, who intercedes for you in groaning, in tongues.
He is also your strengthener, who gives you outstanding anointing for great exploits and true authentic miracles from above.
He is the one who stands by you ready to defend you from any life storms.
“However, I am telling you nothing but the truth when I say it is profitable (good, expedient, advantageous) for you that I go away. Because if I do not go away, the comforter (Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby) will not come to you [into close fellowship with you]; but if I go away, I will send Him to you [to be in close fellowship with you].”John 16:7.
So the Lord Holy Ghost came to stand by you in all affairs of your life. He came and has never gone back to heaven. But unfortunately, He is the most ignored member of the Trinity.
Many families, youths ministers want to do things alone. No wonder many are committing suicide today without a comforter inside them.
The difference between a demon or Satan and the Lord Holy Spirit is that, a demon comes by force, Satan comes by self-invitation while the Lord Holy Spirit only comes by invitation at all times. If you need His support or His help He is there.
Brother Benny Hinn wrote a book titled “Good Morning Holy Spirit.” It would be great for you to get it and read to understand more on who the Holy Spirit is.
The Helper will never force anyone on earth for anything. He will watch and look at you and do nothing when you do not involve Him.
Rather witchcraft powers may derail you in His watching. But He convicts, judges you and makes you righteous only if you need Him.
“…He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in me; of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see me no more; of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.” John 16:8-11
Say your Holy Spirit Personal Prayer.
