The Holy Spirit is the revealer of Jesus to the believer, in the believer and through the believer. Jesus revealed to the believer by the Holy Spirit He shall glorify me: for He shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you. All things that the Father hath are Mine: therefore said I, that He shall take of mine and show it unto you. John 16: 14 & 15 No one knows Jesus, as well as the Holy Spirit. He was with Christ when they both pre-existed with the Father through eternity past, He was with Him throughout His earthly ministry, through the sacrifice of the cross and the glorious resurrection. The Holy Spirit reveals the nature and character of Jesus to the believer. Through the work of the Holy Spirit, Jesus comes alive to us. He walks out of pages of the Gospel and becomes real and alive in our hearts.
Jesus revealed in the believer by the Holy Ghost But when it pleased God, Who separated me from my mothers womb, and called me by His grace, to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the heathen….. Gal. 1:15 & 16 The main purpose of the plan of redemption – Jesus giving His life – was to restore man to the image of God, as he was before the fall of Adam. After you be come born-again (John 3:3), the Holy Spirit’s desire is to place Christ’s nature and likeness in your heart, (and the heart of every born-again believer), by revealing Christ in you.
As the Holy Spirit is allowed to work in your life, you will have the Fruit of the Spirit, as mentioned in Gal. 5:22 & 23; and you will grow daily into the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ (Eph. 4:13). We need a daily revival in our lives. We need God’s power, His nature and His glory revealed to us and in us so that we can show forth His Glory, which is His desire for us. This is a process which continues in us until we see Him face to face – growing and changing – be coming more like Him every day. Jesus revealed through the believer by the Holy Ghost Mark 16:20 says that they (the disciples) went forth and preached everywhere and God confirmed the word with signs following. What was actually happening was the spirit being revealed through the believers, as they yielded to the Holy Spirit, as willing vessels. Jesus said that the believer would do the works that He did and greater works, because He was going to His Father (John 14:12). Through the believer, the Holy Spirit wants to show the world that Jesus Christ is the same – Yesterday, Today and Forever. What He did in bible days, He will do today. The Holy Spirit wants to demonstrate through you the living Lord Jesus. He is alive and He is working in the earth today through you and me! Our prayer for you is that Christ be formed in you (Gal. 4:19), so that you can be all that He wants you to be! Remember: To you – at the new birth In you – which is an ongoing process through out your Christian walkThrough you – as He demonstrates His power to a lost and dying world.
Rodney, my name is Joe Harrington. Last year in November at the Sunday morning meeting, you prayed for me. The doctors gave me 6 months to live. I had congestive heart failure and hepatitis B. Today I to no congestive heart failure and I do not have hepatitis B and they can not explain how this happen and do not understand why, but Rodney you prayed for me and I am healed, praise God! Joe H.
It was my first time going out on the streets, I started out being very nervous. After a couple times watching my partner I warmed up! Out of 20 people, 13 said yes to the Lord. Also, a bus load of kids came up to me and asked me to pray for them.
Praying is so powerful. “If My people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14) God is looking for a generation who will pray. A generation who will cry out for their land.
An important thing that I have learned from sitting underneath Dr. Rodney and Adonica Howard-Browne’s ministry, is that when we pray God hears us. They encourage us that God is just waiting for the man or the woman who will call out to Him. And, when He answers, obey the call. That’s what they did. They cried out for America. And then they came to America to obey the call.
Everytime that I pray to God, He answers, one way or the other. He is just waiting for us to ask Him.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” (Matthew 7:7-8)
“Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.” (Psalm 2:8)
So what are we waiting for? Ask God whatever you desire. Ask Him for your city, your town, your village, your nation, as Dr. Rodney Howard-Browne has, and see the miracles that God will perform.
Some of you are waiting on God…but really, He is waiting on us! SO ASK!
These past 6 months going on the Great Awakening Tour with Dr. Rodney Howard-Browne, I have really had a great revelation of what faith really is. The Bible says that faith is a substance-it’s the substance of things that are hoped for (things you want but don’t have yet in the natural), the evidence (actual proof) of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). Have you ever read through the Bible and realized that everything from Genesis to Revelation is supernatural? God is a supernatural God. He is just waiting for the man or woman that will believe Him for the supernatural. If you will only believe, everything in your life can be supernatural. Who you marry, what job you have, direction, provision, anything and everything.
Did you know that when God speaks to you to do something it usually makes no sense in the natural? Why? If it was something that made sense, it would require no faith whatsoever. But because it makes no sense, and there is no way that you in your own self could ever do it, your whole reliance and dependance is on God. God spoke to Noah to build an ark, when it had never rained before. For 100 years he preached that there was a flood coming, and many mocked him. But he held fast to what God had told him. He was a man just as we are and I am positive that he had thoughts and doubts from the devil that tried to come in and call him crazy. I’m sure the enemy said, “you didn’t hear from God, what is rain?, you’ve lost your mind!” But, thank God that he did not listen, because now we have an excellent example to follow. Just as God had said, so the flood came.
Faith is that evidence. Faith believes with no proof in the natural. Faith takes the Word of God and knows that it is true. There is a realm beyond this natural realm…it is the supernatural realm that we can tap into. To where we have whatever we ask because we keep His commandments (1 John 3:22).
Look at Abraham and Sarah. They were promised a child in their old age–in their 90’s. Imagine you grandmother and grandfather giving birth to a child! Does that make any sense whatsoever?…NO! But you know what, they waited for the promise for 25 years and received the promised child: Isaac.
What has God spoken to you and promised you? What promises in the Word are you standing on? It shall come to pass. Only believe. It doesn’t matter what the natural tells you. Faith is what you hope for and evidence of what you do not currently see. Even though you do not see it with your natural eye, start to see it in the spirit. Start to picture it and actually believe. That’s when your breakthrough will come.
I prayed with 43 people in the cafeteria of the nursing home. 81 people got saved!
Feb 6 2008: GREAT AWAKENING TOUR CITY #23 PORT ST. LUCIE, FLORIDA Testimony:
I led 110 people to the Lord in 2 days. My goal was 100 per day. In the nursing home I met a man who was very angry & at first did not want to talk to me. As I softly spoke to him his face changed and his voice changed. He agreed to listen to me then he softened and received Christ.
