The Work of the Holy Spirit - 1

The Holy Spirit does his work on earth in diverse ways and by numerous expressions of his ministries. He works in human lives by touching , changing and using them individually or collectively.
I give thanks to God for the work of the Holy Spirit as a Counselor and Comforter in my life and the lives of humans beings world wide.
What would life have been like without the presence of the Holy Spirit here on earth? Awful and frightening.
When we arrive at those cross-roads in life; when we are confused and don't know which way to turn to; where do we go?
How can any human know the truth about the will of God for the present and the future ? When we need to make life -changing decisions and are desperate for vital advice and insight to calm our fears and frayed nerves; who do we turn to?
Do we call or run home to Mum or to our spouses for advice? Or consult our friends , pastors or Bishops for the answers ? Nothing wrong in doing this.
However, the arms of flesh could fail you at those crucial moments.
Great men are not always wise; neither do the aged understand judgement. Job 32:9
For solutions, millions rely on their knowledge, experience, academic qualifications and technological gadgets .
Recent global events have proved that the wisdom of men is unreliable.
That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men , but in the power of God
1 Corinthians 2:5
In times of need or confusion,even some church -goers rely on seers , palm-readers , fortune -tellers and star-gazers for guidance, consulting these mediums and paying huge amounts for their services.
But the Bible says: No man can serve two masters....Ye cannot serve God and mammon Matthew 6:24.
There is a way which seemeth right to a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Proverbs 14:12.

Happy is the man that finds wisdom!
Priceless joy and immense relief comes after a challenge is sorted out.
So where can we find wisdom for solutions "in the day of battle"?
Which is the reliable,tried and
tested truth, freely given to us by God ?
The Truth can be found in the wisdom from the Holy Spirit- the Spirit of Truth .
He guides believers to the knowledge of the will of God as revealed in the Holy Bible. With the counsel of the Holy Spirit, we are able to receive revelations of the will of God for our lives in our present and future
The Holy Spirit bears record in heaven with the Father and the Son.
And these three are one. 1 John 5:7.
So, the Spirit searches and knows the deep things of God and he reveals them to those who believe in him. 1 Corinthians 2:10
He , also bears witness of God's will with the water(the word) and the blood(of Jesus) on the earth. And these three agree as one. 1 John 5:6

In this present era, the power and anointing of the Holy Spirit is vital in our lives as believers. What would we become and what could we achieve and attain without the presence and power of the Holy Spirit counselling and guiding us ?
Can you image an automobile without its engine?
The holy bible describes this day and age as "perilous times...; abounding with lovers of their own selves ,lovers of pleasure than lovers of God, reprobates, blasphemers,unholy, despisers of those that are good ....". 2 Timothy 3:1-end .
It also mentions that evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse .
Not a pleasant time now or in future for the peoples of planet earth.
It is an an era during which " by strength shall no man prevail.." 1 Samuel 2:9.
However , Bible-believing Christians shall prevail because we have the Spirit of the Most high God dwelling in and with us.
Mountains before us shall come tumbling down ; not by power nor by might but by the Spirit of the Lord. Zechariah 4:6.
