God’s Word Reveals the Promise of the Holy Spirit and Works with the Spirit

God’s Word Reveals the Promise of the Holy Spirit and Works with the Spirit

From the Series – the Power of God’s Word – by Michael Fackerell

God’s Word was given by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit over 1600 years through different men. So the Holy Spirit is really the author of the Bible. And it is the Scriptures which reveal the Promise of the Holy Spirit referred to by the Lord Jesus Christ in John 16, Acts 1:4,5,8 and in other places in the Scriptures.

“Let me assure you, it is better for you that I go away. I say this because when I go away I will send the Helper to you. But if I did not go, the Helper would not come.” (John 16:7)

Jesus also said about the Holy Spirit: “I have so much more to tell you, but it is too much for you to accept now.  But when the Spirit of truth comes, he will lead you into all truth. He will not speak his own words. He will speak only what he hears and will tell you what will happen in the future.” (John 16:12,13).

Referring to the promise of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit Jesus said, “Wait here until you receive what the Father promised to send. Remember, I told you about it before. 5 John baptized people with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 1:4,5 ERV)

It is the Holy Spirit who comes to live in believers. He is the down payment for us of the full blessing of the Kingdom of God. It is He who makes Jesus real to us. He works with the Word of God in us and through us to fulfil God’s good purposes.

We need to realize that the Holy Spirit is the One who works together with the Word of God to give spiritual life to people. The Holy Spirit loves to take the pages of the Bible or the spoken message of the Bible and make it work its wonders in human hearts and human lives. So the more we take the written Word of God out to people and plant it in people’s hearts, the more the Spirit of God will be at work.

This is another reason I urge you to become active in spreading God’s Word yourself, and to finance organisations like Bible League International, which are planting God’s Word around the world so that people meet Jesus.

Conclusion

Much more could be written about the power and value of the Word of God. I pray that as a result of this simple booklet you are inspired to take up, read, study and meditate on the Scriptures. I pray the Scriptures will build up your faith and that you will receive from God the fulfilment of as many promises in the Bible as your remaining time on earth permits.

I also pray you are motivated to do something to finance the spread of God’s Word to the many people around the world who are hungry to receive it, but do not have access to it.

 

May the Lord richly bless you.
