From The Heart

The Holy Spirit is the revealer of Jesus to the believer, in the believer and through the believer.


Jesus revealed to the believer by the Holy Spirit

He shall glorify me: for He shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you. All things that the Father hath are Mine: therefore said I, that He shall take of mine and show it unto you.      John 16: 14 & 15

No one knows Jesus, as well as the Holy Spirit. He was with Christ when they both pre-existed with the Father through eternity past, He was with Him throughout His earthly ministry, through the sacrifice of the cross and the glorious resurrection. The Holy Spirit reveals the nature and character of Jesus to the believer. Through the work of the Holy Spirit, Jesus comes alive to us. He walks out of pages of the Gospel and becomes real and alive in our hearts.


Jesus revealed in the believer by the Holy Ghost

But when it pleased God, Who separated me from my mothers womb, and called me by His grace, to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the heathen….. Gal. 1:15 & 16

The main purpose of the plan of redemption - Jesus giving His life - was to restore man to the image of God, as he was before the fall of Adam. After you become born-again (John 3:3), the Holy Spirit’s desire is to place Christ’s nature and likeness in your heart, (and the heart of every born-again believer), by revealing Christ  in you.

As the Holy Spirit is allowed to work in your life, you will have the Fruit of the Spirit, as mentioned in Gal. 5:22 & 23; and you will grow daily into the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ (Eph. 4:13). We need a daily revival in our lives. We need God’s power, His nature and His glory revealed to us and in us so that we can show forth His Glory, which is His desire for us. This is a process which continues in us until we see Him face to face - growing and changing - becoming more like Him every day.


Jesus revealed through the believer by the Holy Ghost

Mark 16:20 says that they (the disciples) went forth and preached everywhere and God confirmed the word with signs following. What was actually happening was the spirit being revealed through the believers, as they yielded to the Holy Spirit, as willing vessels. Jesus said that the believer would do the works that He did and greater works, because He was going  to His Father (John 14:12). Through the believer, the Holy Spirit wants to show the world that Jesus Christ is the same - Yesterday, Today and Forever. What He did in bible days, He will do today. The Holy Spirit wants to demonstrate through you the living Lord Jesus. He is alive and He is working in the earth today through you and me!


Our prayer for you is that Christ be formed in you (Gal. 4:19), so that you can be all that He wants you to be!

Remember:       To you - at the new birth

                        In  you - which is an ongoing process through out your Christian walk

                        Through you - as He demonstrates His power to a lost and dying world
