“And you shall lay hold of dynamic ability to perform or to execute or to achieve by applying the Lord’s inherent abilities after the Holy Spirit has enabled you.” Read Acts 1:8. Let us kill a sacred cow in the room; the Holy Spirit is not speaking in tongues, neither is it shaking rattling rock and roll., and it is most definitely not a doctrine.
Who then is the Holy Spirit? The Holy Spirit is the inherent power of God, in other words, the Holy Spirit is a person. Scripture tells us, the Holy Spirit is a member of the God Head (God the Father, and God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit). Some school of thoughts posit, the Holy Spirit being the third person of the trinity is lesser in authority, ability and power. Seriously, really, let us look at what the book of Matthew 28:19 says “Go ye therefore and teach all nations baptising them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost.” Jesus was clearly stating from this verse of scripture; the equality of the Holy Spirit in the same position as the Father and the Son.
Genesis 1:1-3 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said…” Walk with me on this, only when the Spirit of God was present, did God speak; “and God said”, indicating the Holy Spirit does the work of an executioner, a fixer (selah: pause and calmly think).The Holy Spirit takes the spoken words of faith and sees to it that the instructions are carried out signed sealed and delivered
A lack of understanding of the person and out working of the Holy Spirit has caused a lot of controversy doctrinally and theologically about the person and the role of the Holy Spirit in the 21st Century Church.
The Holy Spirit is not an errand boy, show some respect.
