Good Morning Precious and Dearly Loved Child of Our Abba Father!
“When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, The Spirit of Truth who goes out from the Father, He will testify about me….. 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….. But when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on His own; He will speak only what He hears , and He will tell you what is to come.” John 15:26 to 16:13.
“And I will ask the Father and He will give you another Counselor to be with you forever—the Spirit of Truth. The world cannot accept Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you know Him, for He lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me.” John 14:16-19.
“But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. ‘Peace I leave with you; my Peace I give to you. I do not give as the world gives. Do not let you’re your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:26-27.
There is so much fear in churches today about the Holy Spirit!!!! The only reason there is this fear, is because of a lack of revelation of who He really is in the hearts of men! Why would anyone want to fear a Counselor and Guide from the Father who will teach them what Jesus has said? Jesus said that it was better for all people that He leaves and the Holy Spirit is sent. To be afraid of Holy Spirit is to be afraid of the Father and Jesus because He is the Spirit of the Father and Jesus!
The Holy Spirit only testifies about Jesus and the Father! He is our personal Counselor and Guide, who only speaks Truth to our hearts! He doesn’t speak about Himself, He only glorifies the Father and the Son! Holy Spirit is a GIFT from the Father; why would we be afraid of a gift from God? “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights…” James 1:17. The Holy Spirit is the best Gift, a part from Jesus, that He given to mankind, and yet much of the church is afraid of Him!
Jesus was only one physical man, but in the sending of Holy Spirit to man, Jesus and the Father live and dwell with each and every one of us 24/7. Holy Spirit doesn’t speak on His own, He only speaks what the Father and Son saying and it is 100%Truth! He is your very own and personal Counselor! “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in a accordance with God’s will.” Romans 8:26-27.
The Holy Spirit prays for us, intercedes for us, groans for us, the perfect will of God for our lives! What is there to fear about that? The Father is always speaking to us through the Holy Spirit! The Father speaks, and the Holy Spirit is the one who communicates and releases it to us! “How precious also are your thoughts towards to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I count them, they would outnumber the sand.” Psalms 139:17-18. The Father is always speaking to us, His kids, and He speaks us through the Holy Spirit! When we limit the Holy Spirit in our life, we limit the ability for God to speak to us personally, as our very own Counselor!
Jesus said, “Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid”, because the gift of the Holy Spirit is His gift of Peace to us! The Holy Spirit is not of the five worldly senses, and this is the reason the world cannot know Him or accept Him! Are you ready to receive and fellowship with Holy Spirit as He is Jesus and the Father with and in You speaking and comforting you with all Truth? Do you want your very personal Counselor who is with you 24/7? Do you want Him who prays and intercedes for the perfect will of God for you? Do you want to hear God’s voice more clearly?
Holy Spirit is your best friend and the ultimate Lover of your soul! “God has poured His Love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given to us.” Romans 5:5. God pours His Love into your heart through the Holy Spirit! Perfect Love casts out fear!!!!!! SHALOM!!!!!!!
