The Holy Spirit has often been discussed. Many understandings have been projected onto it and they haven’t always been good. It’s been understood as a kind of chaos, losing control of your will and your mind and your body in this carnival or circus-like atmosphere and you tend to do irrational and random things. It’s been presented in a way that quite frankly scares people. And they love Jesus Christ but when it comes to the Holy Spirit, they’re not so sure. Will they bark like a dog or cluck like a chicken? Am I going to wake up one day and have a crazy impulse to go out and do something wacky?
After enough TV shows and comedians weigh in, the Holy Spirit basically means being mental. But that’s not God, that’s the impostor Satan. He knows if you and I connect with the Holy Spirit, you and I will begin to understand and know the Father and how much he loves his children. And when you and I discover how much God loves humanity, we will be changed forever. You must remember the mission of Satan is to keep all mankind from knowing Jesus Christ, from knowing how much God loves them. But the Holy Spirit is the connection, the conduit, the teacher, the revealer, the person that will teach you and I to know who God is.
God is an architect, a builder. He’s not a God of chaos, he’s a God of order. The House of God has been seen often to be demonstrating this confusion where we fly by the seat of our pants and we do everything last minute so we can move by the Spirit. As if the Spirit has no preemptive ability to set us up for the future.
But that isn’t the Holy Spirit that I see in the New Testament. That’s not the Holy Spirit that is on the Earth to live in and through believers. And if we can get into the understanding of who the Holy Spirit is , we can reveal the lie of the spin doctor Satan who has kept many good Christ-loving believers from wanting to have an A+ relationship with the Holy Spirit, and has kept them willing to live with a C or a C- or D or D- relationship with the Holy Spirit so they don’t do something crazy.
If that’s you right now, I believe the word of God can reveal itself to you and that you can experience the Holy Spirit in a new and great way.
