What a series of teachings we have in our hands guys. If we do well to pay attention to the things I have been sharing and will share during the course of this series, I believe strongly that we will break into a whole new dimension of realities.
The Holy Spirit is the Carrier and Possessor and Distributor of the Power of the Age to come, and with Him on your side and actively engaged, you are about to experience the best seasons of your life. This is really exciting!!!
Today, we go further in exploring the details of the Assignment of The Holy Spirit. Last week, we deconstructed the first layer; Reproving the World of Sin. There, we made it clear that the way The Holy Spirit achieves this is through the believer who is yielded to Him.
This is the most dangerous dimension of the Holy Spirit, especially to the kingdom of darkness. While Jesus was alive, He was One Man, in One Place at One Time doing One Thing. The damage He could cause to the kingdom of darkness was limited to his 3 dimensional presence per time. If the mad man in Gadara needed Him, He would have to go over by sea which will take some time and when He eventually gets there, it automatically means, the lame, the blind and the dead in Capernaum could not access Him and therefore would have to wait till He returned from Gadara.
The devil thought that the “good” Jesus was doing was bad enough to his empire as it was literally disrupting the norm and dogma of the day engineered chiefly by the Pharisees, so guess what he does? He attempts to end that trend by killing his “competitior” who is suddenly thriving in the “Soul Market”, a market he had dominated for eons. In his bid to end that competitive threat, he crucified Jesus and hoped His influence would die with Him… but alas, that singular occurrence gave rise to his worst nightmare; The Holy Spirit. The Anointing Himself, The One who wields this Dispensation and Navigates its courses.
The One who is not limited by time, space or matter. Moses experienced a foretaste of that Glory, when the Lord took of his spirit and anointed 70 men with it… 2 men who were not even in the company of the 68, caught that spirit right in the tent and started prophesying. The devil has no idea what he is in for… as he attempts to put out a fire in one, 5000 others are getting filled and baptized in the Holy Ghost. As he attempts to threaten Peter, he only empowers them to pray for boldness and thereafter preach the Word fearlessly, then 3000 souls!???? Then he picked out Stephen and got him matyred, only for that event to spark a revolution that would move the MOVE to Samaria, Philippi and Corinth… I wonder why he still attempts to stop the believer and The Church, ???? he should have figured out by now, after 2000 years of valid historical data that every of his attempts only works in favour of The Christ and His Church!
This is the capacity of The Third Person of The Trinity, Whom we now examine. He is like nothing you have ever experienced. The Bible says He would Reprove The World of Righteousness… What does that mean? What that means is that He will wield the believer as an instrument yielded unto Righteousness and begin to use that believer to set up standards in every sphere of human endeavours and all the 7 societal mountains! Don’t be religious about this, The Holy Spirit is about to invade every sphere of human experience with His Presence through the Believer.
And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. 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 shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
Romans 6:13, 16 KJV
13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. 16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
Daniel is a classic example! Daniel yielded his members as instruments of righteousness and God used that instrument to establish His dominion in a strange land to such a degree that 3 dispensations of kings couldn’t ignore him. What is an instrument? A tool or device used for a particular purpose; especially designed to do a careful and exact work.
The interesting thing about an instrument is that it will need someone to wield it, someone has to use it, usually an expert or technician. Musical instruments for example don’t play themselves, neither does any kind of instrument. Now imagine yourself as an instrument of Kingdom Purpose and Agenda, wielded by the Holy Spirit to advance the Work of God here on earth. Imagine for a moment, the Holy Spirit playing the piano, just think about the unreal level of proficiency He will demonstrate with the keys and chords. That is exactly how the Holy Spirit wants to use you, and when you are completely yielded to Him, oh how beautifully and skillfully He would use you!
He doesn’t only use people to preach, because He has far more use for His Power, Creativity and Grace than Preaching! Remember how He filled Bazaliel with all kinds of wisdom and understanding about all kinds of craftsmanship and complex manipulations? He still does that today! He fills people with amazing computer and coding skills, crazy musical skills, unreal dancing skills… The Holy Spirit still fills folks with gifts that have relevance in other contexts apart from the Church, however they must yield it to Him for the furtherance of the Kingdom. For Bazaliel, he submitted his giftings to be used in building the Temple as received by Moses on the Mount. He used his gift to advance the kingdom. He submitted his members (body, mind, brain, hands, legs, eyes, everything) as instruments of righteousness. One of the Pastors at PowerPoint, where I Pastor is a typical example of the 21st century Bazaliel, his name is Itoro Nehemiah. He is a Financial Analyst, Musical Prodigy, Graphics Designer, Business Owner and a host other things that keeps unfolding with time. The good thing is that he has used these gifts in amazing ways to further the kigdom of God.
This is how the Lord wants to use you to reprove/convict the world of righteousness. People will through you understand how governance must be done, how to run a business, how to inspire a generation! Because you have submitted your members to Him. This is really profound guys! There is a right way to Judge, a right way to do Ministry, a right way to stay married and God wants to demonstrate His right way of doing things on the earth through you as you continue to seek Him.
When you seek Him with all your heart, He will show you blueprints, frameworks, dreams, visions, ideas and solutions that will become industry specific novelty in the earth. Righteousness at this level is communicated ONLY to seekers. You don’t stumble of this kind of wisdom, you get it by asking and seeking. The Holy Spirit has many things to show you and bring you into, if only you will renounce your confidence in the flesh and seek Him above all else.
He will make you a wonder and an instrument through which He establishes His Kingdom extensions on earth.
Follow me through the course of this teaching series and let’s deconstruct this very juicy subject area together.
Have a remarkable February!!!
