The subject of the Holy Spirit is one of the most misunderstood and misinterpreted subjects among Christians and non-Christians.

Many people are afraid to hear sermons about the Holy Spirit because of incorrect teachings they may have received in the past.

The topic of speaking in tongues and the gifts of the Spirit are often shunned as a result.

However, the Holy Spirit is real. He desires to work through you so that you can experience the power that God ordained every Christian to have and use in these last days

Gaining an understanding of who the Holy Spirit is, and who He is not, is critical in order to experience His presence and power. The Holy Spirit is not a feeling or an emotion.

Although His presence can stir up emotions within you, He actually is the third person of the Trinity God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

When you receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, the Holy Spirit comes to live in your heart; it becomes His dwelling place. As you learn to yield to Him, you will find yourself walking out God’s plan for your life. In addition, you will experience supernatural power and breakthrough like never before.

Jesus explains the function of the Holy Spirit in John 16:7, “Nevertheless I tell you the truth: It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.” Jesus knew He would have to leave in order for the Holy Spirit to come to the earth. Now that the Holy Spirit is here, and dwelling in every member of the body of Christ, the power of God can flow to an even greater extent than when Jesus walked the earth!

The Holy Spirit is the motivator, energizer and operator of every revealed plan or vision from God. He is also the revealer of the hidden treasures of the Kingdom of God and holds the key to the inheritance of the saints. He is the most valuable asset to Christian living, and yet many times, Believers don’t know enough about Him to really take advantage of what He can do in their lives.

Since we are living in the Last Days, it is going to be imperative that you know how to distinguish the Holy Spirit’s voice. That “hunch” or inner feeling you have inside that is either directing you or telling you not to do something is the Holy Spirit. You can develop a discernment of His voice through studying and meditating on the Word of God. He will never say anything to you that doesn’t line up with the written Word, so studying the Bible is essential to your recognizing His voice.
