You need the ministry of the Holy Spirit if you want to walk in the supernatural. No man can do anything without Him. He is the source of God’s power. If you want to carry God’s fire, you must embrace Him.
The great generals in the bible couldn’t do anything not until the Holy Spirit came to the scene. Samson was powerless, although he was a Nazarene from birth but he needed the Holy Spirit to walk in the fullness of His destiny. Until the Spirit comes upon him and begins to move him, he was powerless, helpless and hopeless. He remained ordinary man in as much as the spirit was not with him but with the Holy Spirit he walked as gods. You will remain an ordinary, weak, hopeless, helpless and powerless Christian until you embrace the Holy Spirit.
Moses was a man destined to deliverer the nation of Israel but he couldn’t do it without the help of the Holy Spirit. Although, he was trained with the best education of the land, he was a prince of the land Egypt by divine arrangement and adoption. He was courageous (at least he tried to intervene when an Egyptian was fighting an Israelite but ended up being a wanderer). Until he saw the burning bush, he became a coward but after the burning bush experience he became a warrior. Without the burning bush, he ran from pharaoh but after the experience he became a god to pharaoh. Before the burning bush, he was afraid of what pharaoh can do but after the burning bush pharaoh was afraid of what Moses can do.
Beloved, are you afraid about what the future holds? All I ask is please be a friend to the Holy Spirit and see how glorious the future will be.
Who was Elisah without the mantle? He would have died as a successful farmer before prophet Elijah saw him or better still he would have died as one of the non-significant sons of the prophet but thank God for the mantle, the one who has no title became the one who heads those with title. You may not be significant in your family and among your mate, if only your will embrace the Holy Spirit, I guarantee you of being a sought after person by those who don’t recognize you now.
What about David? Who would have thought the last born of the last tribe of the nation of Israel will be the king over them. The father couldn’t imagined it, the brothers would even argued that if someone tell them, the prophet couldn’t even think in that direction but the Holy Spirit chose him among the best and most qualified.
When we are shouting about you developing a relationship with the Holy Spirit, we are not just saying it so that you can cast out demons or heal the sick but we saying it because the fulfillment of your future as a Christian depends on it. As God promised you a glorious future? You need the same God to help you fulfill it. As a matter of fact, in any filed you find yourself, there are a lot of people working so hard towards greater height. Who you know will come to play at one point in your life. If only you know the Holy Spirit enough, you may not know those who control things in your field but you are privilege to know the One who controls the one who control things in your field.
Time will fail me to mention all the great men of the scripture and how they become who they are by the help of the Holy Spirit. Dearly beloved, you also need Him for you to become who He has destined you to become.
Do you know that our Lord Jesus Christ couldn’t do anything when He was physically on earth? Until the Spirit came on Him, He couldn’t do much even though He is the seed of God. But by the time the Holy Spirit come upon Him, He was empowered to do the miraculous that science will fail to explain.
Acts 10:38 “How God anointed Jesus of Nazarite with Holy Ghost and with power, who went about doing good and healing all that was oppressed for God was with Him”
The Ministry of the Lord Jesus couldn’t start in its fullness until the Holy Spirit came to the scene.
The day of Pentecost was a remarkable day for the disciples, a day not to forget for the body of Christ. These guys have not recovered from the lost of their Master. They have given up on all things to follow Him and suddenly He was taken from them. To make the matter worse government clamp down on them and they needed to go into hiding. Although, they had been with the Lord physically yet the Lord Jesus warned them not to depart Jerusalem until they receive the Holy Ghost.
Acts 1:4 “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”
Then in Acts 2:1-4 when the Holy Spirit came on the day of Pentecost, the life and ministry of the apostles had a turn around. You also need the Holy Spirit. You are nothing without Him.
