Holy Spirit: His Atributes

The Oil Of Joy The Holy Spirit is referred to as the oil of joy. To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified. Isaiah 61:3 In Psalm 45:7, He is referred to as the Oil of Gladness: Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. What this means is that He is the anointing for joy and gladness. Like an injection, He injects joy and gladness into the beneficiary. What is the significance of joy and gladness? The Bible says that "a merry heart doeth good like medicine" (Proverbs. 17:...

Holy Spirit: His Approach To His Mission

The first thing the Holy Spirit did when He came was to bring the disciples out of their hiding place in the upper room. They that were once fugitives became rulers in the land. He announced His arrival, broke the walls that enclosed them and dignified His people. Peter who denied his Master (even before a little girl), now proclaimed boldly, "Jesus Christ whom your fathers killed." The Holy Ghost came to reveal them, to bring them out of darkness and cause their light to shine from obscurity. In no time at all, the disciples became a concern to the entire province where they were living. Authorities in power held meetings because of them. They became the unbeatable winners, speaking and having what they spoke.             They took over the synagogues as though there were no high prie...

The Holy Spirit: His Personality

The Bible makes one thing clear: everyone lives to fulfil his name. When Jesus called the Holy Spirit the Comforter, He automatically revealed His mission – to make men comfortable. The Holy Spirit was sent primarily to establish comfort for God’s people. Jesus had some level of comfort, but He promised that with the coming of the Comforter, the comfort they previously enjoyed would fade into mere insignificance. Let us briefly examine some names in the Bible and their relationship with the bearers. When the angel appeared unto Joseph and said, "...Thou shalt call his name Jesus...", he revealed something about the person of Jesus. The name Jesus means Saviour. His mission: to "...save his people from their sins..." (Matthew 1:21). Bearing the name "Simon", which means "the reed" ...

Who is the Holy Spirit?

He is not a feeling or a falling, nor is He a crying or a wailing. He is no emotion, He is a person. He is a personality in the order of the Godhead! He is the third person of the Trinity. He is in charge of the affairs of the kingdom of God on earth today. He is the Chief Executive of the divine programme on earth. He is the motivator, energizer and operator of every revealed plan (vision) from God. He is the revealer of the hidden treasures of the kingdom and holds the key to the inheritance of the saints. The Holy Spirit is the most valuable asset to Christian living. He is the central figure in any breakthrough in life. "But why all the counterfeits?", you may ask. The simple answer is this: the presence of the counterfeit is a sure proof of the existence of the gen...

Anointing For Breakthrough

Introduction The subject and person of the Holy Spirit is one of the most misunderstood and misinterpreted in the Christian faith. The Evangelicals see Him as the dormant, unannounced guest of the "inside." The Pentecostals see Him as the force behind speaking in tongues and the motivator of spiritual zeal. Often, His presence is heralded with great emotional display. Then came the Charismatics, presenting the Holy Spirit to the world as the operator of signs and wonders, and diverse manifestations, like "falling under the power."
