Wisdom & Expansion 2020

Kenneth Copelands Word for 2020.

An increase in visions and dreams

Great changes that would come because of insights, ideas and concepts for the church through the Holy Spirit – How laws of the spirit work governing increase and financial prosperity; laws of the spirit that release miracles and divine healings and manifestations of His almighty power on earth.  New conceptsof His love; insights into the true power and strength of His joy.

 

AMP Eph 5:15 Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people),

NKJV 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be unwise, but understandwhat the will of the Lord is. 18 And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord,

 

Col 3:16 Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

 

THE HOLY SPIRIT WORKS WITHIN OUR HEART (SPIRIT)

 

YLT 2 Cor 6:11 Our mouth hath been open unto you, O Corinthians, our heart hath been enlarged! 12 ye are not straitened in us, and ye are straitened in your [own] bowels, 13 and [as] a recompense of the same kind, (as to children I say [it],) be ye enlarged–also ye!

 

WNT 11 O Corinthians, our lips are unsealed to you: our heart is expanded. 12 There is no narrowness in our love to you: the narrowness is in your own feelings. 13 And in just requital–I speak as to my children–let your hearts expand also.

 

THE WORDS STRAIGHTENED OR NARROWNESS MEANS: TO HEM IN, TO RESTRICT

 

JUST LIKE THE ACORN HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE A GIANT OAK TREE, WE WERE CREATED WITH A CAPACITY TO ENLARGE.

 

MSG 2 Cor 6:11 Dear, dear Corinthians, I can’t tell you how much I long for you to enter this wide-open, spacious life. We didn’t fence you in. The smallness you feel comes from within you. Your lives aren’t small, but you’re living them in a small way. I’m speaking as plainly as I can and with great affection. Open up your lives. Live openly and expansively!

 

FOR US TO INCREASE AND EXPAND WE MUST INCREASE AND EXPAND IN HEART FIRST.

 

ONE OF THE MAIN THINGS THAT RESTRICTS YOUR HEART, KEEPS YOU FROM RECEIVING IS A HARD HEART.

 

BEFORE SOMETHING CAN BE ENLARGED OR STRETCHED IT HAS TO BECOME FLEXABLE AND PLIABLE.  IF IT’S HARD IT CAN’T EXPAND.

 

Eph 3:16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.

 

GOD CREATED US WITH THE CAPACITY TO BE FULL OF GOD.

 

1 Kings 4:29 And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore.

 

NIV God gave Solomon wisdom and very great insight, and a breadth of understanding as measureless as the sand on the seashore.

 

MSG God gave Solomon wisdom—the deepest of understanding and the largest of hearts.

 

BEFORE THERE CAN BE AN OUTPOURING THERE HAS TO BE A RECEPTICAL TO RECEIVE IT.

THE MORE NARROW YOUR HEART THE MORE SELFISHNESS AND FEAR

THE BIGGER THE HEART THE MORE FEARLESS YOU ARE AND SELFLESS

 

Mark 8:15-22 Jesus rebuked the disciples for hardness of heart.

 

Matt 18:3 “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

 

WE NEED TO BE TENDERHEARTED.  THAT’S A KEY TO EXPANSION.

 

Eph 4:17 So this I say, and affirm together with the Lord, that you walk no longer just as the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of their mind, 18 being darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their heart; 19 and they, having become callous, have given themselves over to sensuality for the practice of every kind of impurity with greediness. 20 But you did not learn Christ in this way, 21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus, 22 that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, 23 and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.

 

Mark 8:17 Do you not yet see or understand? Do you have a hardened heart? 18 Having eyes, do you not see? And having ears, do you not hear?

Spiritual Things Pt 9

The Holy Spirit and Glory

 

Zch 4:6 Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts.

 

Eph 3:14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory,

 

IN THE OLD TESTAMENT ONE OF THE MEANINGS FOR GLORY IS HEAVY

 

THE GLORY OF GOD IS THE GOODNESS OF GOD (Exodus 33)

 

DAVID SAID, “You will receive me to glory” Ps 73:24

 

THE GLORY OF GOD IS THE MANIFEST PRESENCE OF GOD.

 

Eph 3 IS REALLY A NEW TESTAMENT PRAYER FOR GLORY

 

THE GLORY OF GOD CONTAINS EVERY CONCEIVABLE GOOD.

 

ONE COMMENTARY SAID, THERE IS REALLY NOT ANY GOOD ENGLISH WORDS TO DESCRIBE THE GLORY OF GOD.

 

Philippians 4:19 And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

 

GLORY; MEANS WEALTH, COMMERCE, NUMBERS, WISDOM, REVELATION, POWER, PROMOTION, DIGNITY, SUPERIORITY, AUTHORITY, NOBILITY, SPLENDOR, VALOR.

 

Psalm 29:3 “The God of glory thunders”… Vs 9 “Makes the deer to calve”  CONCEIVE

 

Vs 9 “In His temple everything say’s glory”

 

Eph 3:16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man,

 

Amp May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality].

 

MOST OF OUR PRAYERS ARE ABOUT EXTERNAL THINGS.  THIS PRAYER IS ABOUT INTERNAL THINGS.

 

IN THE GLORY, IS WHERE WE ENTER THE REALM OF REVELATION, BUT WE ALSO ENTER THE REALM OF TRANSFORMATION.

 

Eph 3:16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love,

 

18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.

 

Amp that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!

 

20 Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us,

 

John 7:37 Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink.

 

38 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’”

39 But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

 

Job 29:23 And they wait as [for] rain for me, And their mouth they have opened wide [As] for the latter rain.

(Ps 81:10)

Spiritual Things Pt 8

A Holy Spirit Christmas

 

YOU CANNOT BE ANY CLOSER TO JESUS THAN A VITAL RELATIONSHIP YOU HAVE WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT

 

Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. 3 Then God said,

 

TO MOVE MEANS; TO BROOD, BROODING, TO HOVER OVER. 

 

NOUN – SITTING ON THE EGGS TO HATCH THEM… A BREEDING TERM.

 

VERB – TO THINK DEEPLY ABOUT SOMETHING THAT MAKES ONE HAPPY.  

 

“He that dwells in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of The Almighty.”  (Ps 91:1)

 

Ps 23:6 through the length of my days the house of the Lord [and His presence] shall be my dwelling place.

 

GOD WORKS THROUGH THE INCUBATION PROCESS TO CHANGE THINGS.

 

Luke 1:30 The angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God. 31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David; and 33 He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end.” 34 Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I am a virgin?” 35 The angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy Child shall be called the Son of God.

 

37 For nothing will be impossible with God.”

 

Luke 4:17 And the book of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him. And He opened the book and found the place where it was written, 18 “The Spirit of the Lord is UPON Me,

 

Acts 2:1 When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. 2 And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves, 4 and they rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance.

 

WHAT MAKES THE HOLY SPIRIT BROOD?

 

THE BETTER YOU KNOW THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE MORE YOU WILL KNOW WHAT MAKES HIM COME AND WHAT MAKEs HIM GO.

 

  1. YOUR DESIRE FOR HIM AND TO FELLOWSHIP WITH HIM.  DAILY!

 

THE MORE YOU KNOW HIM THE MORE YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU DO IS NOT SO MUCH ABOUT; IS IT RIGHT OR WRONG BUT DOES IT PLEASE HIM OR GREIVE HIM?

 

  1. THE HOLY SPIRIT RESPONDS TO WORSHIP…

WORSHIP IS SINGING SONGS TO HIM… NOT ABOUT HIM.
IN THE INCUBATING ATMOSPHERE CHANGE TAKES PLACE… LIVES ARE TOUCHED,
WE ENTER THE REALM OF TRANSFORMATION BY THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

THIS IS THE SECRET OF KING DAVID. 

Psalm 27:4 One thing I have asked from the Lord, that I shall seek:

That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,

 

HOW DO WE KEEP THE HOLY SPIRIT BROODING OVER OUR LIVES?

 

MAINTAIN AN OFFENSE FREE ENVIRONMENT.
IF IT OPENS THE DOOR TO DARKNESS IT’S OFFENSIVE TO THE HOLY SPIRIT.
WHAT PLEASES THE HOLY SPIRIT DEFINES WHAT IS RIGHT AND WRONG… NOT A LIST OF DO’S AND DON’TS
THIS IS GOING TO INCLUDE NOT OFFENDING OTHERS.
YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO DO YOUR BEST TO AVOID SELFISHNESS AND YOUR OPINIONS. JUDGMENTAL ATTITUDES, ARROGANCE AND PRIDE
BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SPEAK INTO YOUR ENVIRONMENT

HOW DO WE KNOW WHEN HE IS BROODING OVER US?

 

  1. YOU WALK IN DIVINE FAVOR…

 

  1. YOU SENSE THE DESTINY ON THE INSIDE OF YOU… HIS WILL SEEMS TO BE MORE CLEAR.  ASSINGNMENTS ARE REVEALED

 

OUR GREATEST CONFLICT WILL BE TO GET US OUT OF THE BROODING

 

HOWEVER MUCH OF A PRIORITY HE IS TO YOU WILL BE HOW MUCH OF A REALITY HE IS THROUGH YOU.

 

THE ENEMY KNOWS IF HE CAN GET YOU OUT FROM UNDER THE BROODING YOU WILL START TRYING TO FIGHT YOUR OWN BATTLES.

 

HOW DO WE KEEP HIM BROODING? 

 

  1. PURSUE WHO HE IS MORE THAN WHAT HE DOES.

 

  1. OBEY (FOLLOW) HIS INSTRUCTIONS… YOU ONLY GO AS DEEP INTO HIM AS YOUR LAST ACT OF OBEDIENCE

 

  1. DON’T MAKE FRIENDS WITH HIS ENEMIES…

 

A FRIEND OF THE WORLD IS AN ENEMY OF GOD

James 4:4 You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

Overcoming Fear Pt 13

Overcoming with Hope

 

Matt 6:25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?

 

27 Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?  28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

 

31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’

 

ASKING A QUESTION IN UNBELIEF AND FEAR IS NEVER OK…

 

James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting (WAVERING)

 

YOU CAN ASK IN FEAR AND YOU CAN ASK IN FAITH.

 

“WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO,” LACED WITH FEAR IS NOT OK…

 

AMP Matt 6:31 Therefore do not worry and be anxious, saying, What are we going to have to eat?or, What are we going to have to drink? or, What are we going to have to wear?

 

Luke 8:49 While He was still speaking, someone *came from the house of the synagogue official, saying, “Your daughter has died; do not trouble the Teacher anymore.” 50 But when Jesus heard this, He answered him, “Do not be afraid any longer; only believe, and she will be made well.”

 

Psalm 16:8 I have set the Lord always before me; Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will rest in hope.

 

WE LIVE AND MOTIVATE THROUGH LIFE BY FAITH

 

Psalm 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?

 

13 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the Lord In the land of the living.

 

Psalm 42:5 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted (disturbed) within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him For the help of His countenance.

 

11 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; For I shall yet praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God.

Spiritual Things Pt 7

The Holy Spirit In Our Life

 

1 Cor 12:1 And concerning the spiritual things, brethren, I do not wish you to be ignorant.

 

1 Cor 2:9 but just as it is written, “Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him.”10 For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.

11 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God,

 

HE IS A PERSON, HE IS GOD, HE IS LORD, HE IS OMNIPRESNT, HE IS OMNICIENT, HE IS OMNIPOTENT, HE IS ETERNAL, HE IS THE FATHERS CHANGE AGENT

 

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

 

5 “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

 

THE MOMENT THE HOLY SPIRIT COMES INTO YOUR LIFE A NUMBER OF THINGS MUST HAPPEN.

 

  1. Isaiah 32:15 Until the Spirit is poured out upon us from on high, And the wilderness becomes a fertile field, And the fertile field is considered as a forest.

 

WHEN THE SPIRIT IS POURED OUT UPON YOUR LIFE YOU WILL LIVE IN THE LAND AS A FRUTIFUL BELIEVER.

 

THE PRESENCE OF GOD ALWAYS CREATES FRUITFULNESS (John 15)

 

Ps 68:6 He brings out the prisoners into prosperity; But the rebellious dwell in a parched land.

 

Isaiah 32:15 “The field is as a forest”

 

THE SPIRIT WANTS TO TAKE YOU FROM THE FIELD TO THE FOREST.

 

  1. Ezk 36:27 I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances.

 

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE ONE WHO HELPS YOU LIVE LIKE A CHRISTIAN

 

Phil 2:12 work out your salvation with fear and trembling; 13 for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.

 

THE ONLY WAY TO AVOID FLESH LIVING IS TO WALK IN THE SPIRIT.  (Gal 5:16)

 

Rom 8:13 for if you are living according to the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live.

 

  1. Ezk 39:29 I will not hide My face from them any longer, for I will have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel,” declares the Lord God.

 

WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT COMES IN YOUR LIFE GOD’S PRESENCE WILL BE MANIFESTED TO YOU.

 

John 14:21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”

 

  1. Prov 1:23 Turn to my reproof, Behold, I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.

 

WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT COMES YOU WILL GAIN UNDERSTANDING IN THE WORD

 

Eph 1:17 the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened

 

  1. Dan 6:3 Then this Daniel began distinguishing himself among the commissioners and satraps because he possessed an extraordinary spirit, and the king planned to appoint him over the entire kingdom.

 

WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT IS MOVING IN YOUR LIFE HE WILL BRING EXCELLENCE INTO YOUR WALK WITH GOD.

 

AMP Matt 5:16 Let your light so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven.

 

  1. Isaiah 63:11 Then His people remembered the days of old, of Moses.

Where is He who brought them up out of the sea with the shepherds of His flock? Where is He who put His Holy Spirit in the midst of them, 12 Who caused His glorious arm to go at the right hand of Moses,

Who divided the waters before them to make for Himself an everlasting name, 13 Who led them through the depths? Like the horse in the wilderness, they did not stumble; 14 As the cattle which go down into the valley, The Spirit of the Lord gave them rest.

 

WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT COMES INTO YOUR LIFE HE WILL GIVE YOU REST

 

Matt 11:28 Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

 

  1. 1 Sam 10:6 Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you mightily, and you shall prophesy with them and be changed into another man.

 

WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT COMES ON YOU HE WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE

 

1 Cor 14:31 For you can all prophesy one by one, so that all may learn and all may be exhorted;

Overcoming Fear Pt 12

Hope vs Dread

 

Job 3:25 “What I feared has come upon me, what I dreaded has happened”

 

FAITH HAS HOPE… FEAR HAS DREAD

 

NEVER LET YOUR PAST COLOR YOUR VISION FOR THE FUTURE.

EVERYTHING WE BELIEVE FOR HAS AN EXPECTATION TO IT

EVERYTHING YOU FEAR AND DREAD HAS AN EXPECTATION TO IT AS WELL

 

Prov 10:24 What the wicked fears will come upon him, But the desire of the righteous will be granted.

 

IF YOU HAVE FAITH, YOU WILL HAVE HOPE.

 

Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

 

YOUR EXPECTATION; THAT’S WHAT YOUR FAITH IS WORKING ON….

YOUR EXPECTATION; THAT’S WHAT YOUR FEAR IS WORKING ON

 

Rom 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

 

GOD WANTS US ABOUNDING IN (CONFIDENT EXPECTATION) HOPE

 

1 John 3:1 See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 2 Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. 3 And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

 

Eph 2:12 remember that you were at that time separate from Christ, excluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.

 

Heb 6:17 In the same way God, desiring even more to show to the heirs of the promise the unchangeableness of His purpose, interposed with an oath, 18 so that by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us. 19 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil, 20 where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.

Spiritual Things Pt 6

When The  Spirit Comes

 

1 Cor 2:9 but just as it is written, “Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him.”10 For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.

11 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God,

 

John 16:7 But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.

13 But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.

 

John 14:16 I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever

 

17 but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.

HE CAN BE IN YOU AND WITH YOU… (LIKE OXYGEN)

 

WHEN JESUS LEFT THIS EARTH IT WAS IN HIS LIMITED HUMAN FORM. WHEN HE RETURNED IT WAS IN HIS UNLIMITED FORM AS THE HOLY SPIRIT.

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE CHANGE AGENT

THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS POWER TO RESTORE.

 

3 THINGS WERE CORRECTED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT IN Vs 2

NO MORE CHAOS – NOW IT’S BEAUTY AND PERFECTION

NO MORE EMPTINESS – NOW THERE IS FULLNESS AND ABUNDANCE

NO MORE DARKNESS – NOW THERE IS LIGHT

 HE IS A PERSON… HE HAS AN INTELLECT.  (A MIND)

 

Rom 8:27 and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

 

TPT God, the searcher of the heart, knows fully our longings, yet he also understands the desires of the Spirit, because the Holy Spirit passionately pleads before God for us, his holy ones, in perfect harmony with God’s plan and our destiny.

 

AMP 26 So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance.

THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS A WILL.

1 Cor 12:11 “But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills.”

THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS EMOTIONS.

Romans 15:30 “Now I urge you, brethren, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to strive together with me in your prayers to God for me…”

 

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS GOD!

Isaiah 6:8 And Acts 28:25

THE SAME PERSON THAT ISAIAH CALLED “THE VOICE OF THE LORD” PAUL CALLED “THE SPIRIT”.

 

Acts 28:25 “The Holy Spirit rightly spoke through Isaiah the prophet to your fathers, 26 saying, ‘GO to this people and say, “You will keep on hearing, but will not understand; And you will keep on seeing, but will not perceive;

27 For the heart of this people has become dull, And with their ears they scarcely hear, And they have closed their eyes; Otherwise they might see with their eyes, And hear with their ears, And understand with their heart and return, And I would heal them.”’

 

Heb 1:1 God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, 2 in these last days has spoken to us in His Son…

 

1 Pet 1:21 for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.

 

Psalm 95:7 For He is our God, And we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand. Today, if you would hear His voice, 8 Do not harden your hearts, as at Meribah, As in the day of Massah in the wilderness,

 

Heb 3:7 Therefore, just as the Holy Spirit says, “Today if you hear His voice, 8 Do not harden your hearts as when they provoked Me, As in the day of trial in the wilderness,

 

Acts 5:3 But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back some of the price of the land? 4 While it remained unsold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not under your control? Why is it that you have conceived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.”

 

2 Cor 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

 

AS GOD HE IS OMNIPRESENT

Psalm 139:7 Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? 8 If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there. 9 If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,10 Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me.

 

OMNIPRESENT: HE IS EVERYWHERE AT THE SAME TIME.

 

AS GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT IS OMNICIENT: ALL KNOWING

Isaiah 40:13 Who has directed the Spirit of the Lord, Or as His counselor has informed Him? 14 With whom did He consult and who gave Him understanding? And who taught Him in the path of justice and taught Him knowledge And informed Him of the way of understanding? 15 Behold, the nations are like a drop from a bucket,

And are regarded as a speck of dust on the scales; Behold, He lifts up the islands like fine dust.

 

Mark 12:29 Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is one Lord

 

OUR GOD IS ONE GOD, BUT HE EXPRESSES HIMSELF IN THREE DIFFERENT FORMS. 

 

AS GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT IS OMNIPOTENT: ALL POWERFUL

Luke 1:35 The angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy Child shall be called the Son of God.

 

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS ETERNAL

Heb 9:14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
