WORDS OF WISDOM NEWSLETTER
THE HOLY SPIRIT (PART I)
First, I give honor to my Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ. I greet you in this New Year with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude for all you do for the Kingdom of God. Wishing you and your family the very Best of the Brand New Year. A new decade that we have embarked upon by the Grace of God and we are thanking God in advance for keeping you throughout the year.
As a Christian, looking at the world in its present condition (as the Word of God has declared it would be) my question to you is, Are You Prepared for the New Year? Do you have what you need to accomplish your goals? My encouragement as we start out the New Year is for all of us to understand the importance of being grounded in the Word of God as we take steps forward into this new decade of 2020.
If there has ever been a time for us as children of the Most High God to depend on the Holy Spirit, the time is now. It has always been the time, but as we are truly in the last of what I believe is the last days before Jesus’ return, we need the Holy Spirit as never before.
Jesus’ disciples had been with Him day after day for three years. They had seen miracles and the great things that the Lord Jesus had done in their midst. In the hours before He was crucified, He told His disciples that He would be leaving them and returning to His Father in Heaven. But, He didn’t stop there, He told them in the book of John 14:16-17: 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
If you are born again, the Holy Spirit is in you. The same Holy Spirit that Jesus said would be in us as our comforter, guide, helper and so much more. He is in you, but are you in Him? I believe that there are many Christians that don’t understand the ministry of the Holy Spirit and because of that so many haven’t had the full revelation of who He is that is living on the inside of us(born again children of the most High God).
You must understand, The Holy Spirit took Jesus’ place when He returned back to Heaven. He (Holy Spirit) is the one that is doing the work in the earth. Jesus could not be everywhere at one time when He walked the earth. However, He sent the Holy Spirit to be (Omnipresent). He was not only sent to live in us, but to lead and guide us in the path of righteousness for His namesake.
The disciples did not want Jesus to leave them and they could not understand what He was telling them in John 16:7, when He said that it was expedient for them that He go, for if He did not go away, the Comforter would not come unto them. The Word (Expedient is an action that achieves a particular purpose). Jesus had to leave so the Holy Spirit could come. It was vital for us as believers to have the Holy Spirit come, so that He could empower, equip and live in us always. We should acknowledge Him daily and recognize that God sent His Holy Spirit to take His Son’s place here on the earth leading us into all truth.
Mennie and I are grateful and thankful to God for not leaving us alone. We are grateful and thankful for Jesus sending the precious Holy Spirit to live Big on the inside of every believer. Thank you for being a part of a winning team and being an extension of God’s hand through BTBAB Outreach Ministries. Your prayers, support and love mean so much to us and the Kingdom of God. Always remember, You are Blessed To Be A Blessing! Thank you again for your faithful support of BTBAB.
In His Will,
Dr. Joseph Morrison, D.Min
