Jesus was the greatest revolutionary of all time. He took a hand full of disciples and used them to turn the world upside down.
You are part of His revolutionary army, the priesthood of kings (1 Peter 2:9). After the resurrection of Christ, He met with His followers. They were anxious to start their ministries, but Jesus knew they needed the power of the Holy Spirit for success. After all, they would face demonic principalities, powers, and spiritual forces of wickedness in heavenly places. Like you, they would battle the spirit of religion, witchcraft, Jezebel spirits, and anti-Christ forces. He had already taught them much on the ministry of the Holy Spirit as read in this Scripture.
“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine and shall show it unto you.” (John 16:13-14)
Notice the Holy Spirit as:
- Guide into truth
The Holy Spirit also empowers you to manifest the Kingdom of God with the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit. As already said, Christ’s world changers were eager to get started in ministry, but Jesus told them to wait for the “promise of the Father”, the Holy Ghost who would endue them with overcoming power.
“And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence” (Acts 1:4-5).
This Holy Ghost promise of the Father would empower Christ’s disciples to invade, occupy, and turn the world upside down for Christ.
“But ye shall receive power after that the Holy Spirit is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth” (Acts 1:8).
I encourage you to be baptized in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. This gift is for you right now.
