The scriptures make us to understand that men will always need a supernatural help to maximize his life on the earth 1Chr. 12:18,22; Psa. 60:11-12; Jn. 15:5. The Holy Spirit is the true helper of man’s destiny Jn. 14L16-17; Rms. 8:26. The believer must understand the ways the Holy Spirit offers His help to connect to the help of the Holy Spirit Ecc. 10:15; Pro. 21:16.
The Ministry of the Holy Spirit.
The ministry of the Holy Spirit refers to the things the Holy Spirit is ordained to do in the believers life, and they show the ways He helps the believer. One of such is as the Spirit of revelation.
The Spirit of Revelation.
What is revelation? Revelation is the spiritual understanding of God’s word that enables the believer to practically apply scriptures to generate desired result in life Mat. 4:3-10.
What is it about revelation?
i) Revelation is the lifting force in life.
Revelation is the covenant force that moves the believer forward and up in life no matter the opposition Gal. 2:2; 2Cor. 3:18. The more the revelation, the higher the believer will rise in life.
ii) Revelation gives grants access to glory.
The degree of revelation in which a believe walk, will determine the degree of glory he will command 2Cor. 3:18; Jn. 1:5,9.
iii) Revelation grants access to unquestionable dominion.
Revelation refers to light from God’s word Psa. 119:130. Remember, the dominion of light over darkness is instant, unquestionable and eternal Jn. 1:5. In essence, when the believer is illuminated through revelation, he walks in unquestionable dominion over the powers of darkness Jn. 8:12; Lk. 4:33-36; Mk. 1:28-34. When the believer’s life lacks revelation, he remains subject to the forces of darkness.
The Ministry of the Holy Spirit in Accessing Revelation.
From scriptures, we understand that the Holy Spirit is the believer’s helper that gives access to the revelation of God’s word Jn. 14:26; 1Cor. 2:10-13. The Holy Spirit is the messenger of the covenant, who unveils the table of the covenant to the believer Mal. 3:1-3; Heb. 9:1-4. The Holy Spirit is the author and interpreter of the word, hence the only one that can give the believer understanding of true meaning of God’s word, which makes for light from the word Job 33:21-24; 1Jn. 2:20,27.
Requirements to Access Revelation.
There are certain covenant demands essential to connect to the ministry of the Holy Spirit for revelation, without which every effort of the believer will be futile.
Being born again is a must to gain access to the work of the Holy Spirit for revelation Mk. 4:11. This is why when an individual is yet to be born again, the scriptures doesn’t make meaning much or no meaning to him.
Baptism in the experience of being filled with the Holy Spirit Acts 2:2-4. When the believer has this experience, he begins to enjoy the Holy Spirit work of making him to understand God’s word that will lead to ability to generate result with the word 1Jn. 2:20,27; Jn. 14:26.
This is a must for the believer to keep flowing in revelation. Until the believer has put to use the revelation the Holy Spirit gives, he does not have access to fresh one Lk. 6:46-49; Php. 3:16.
In conclusion, there is no reason to be stranded or struggle when the Holy Spirit has been made available by God to help the believer. The challenge is that many believers keep the helper that God has provided aside, while they try to get things done resulting in the struggles and failure. It is time to return to our helper, and we will be surprised what becomes of our lives.
To anyone reading this that will love to give his/her life to Christ, pray this prayer out loud with me from your heart: “Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins; wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me, thank you Jesus for restoring me, thank you Jesus for saving me. Amen!”
