As we live in the Last Days, it is more important than ever to understand and walk in the power of the Holy Spirit. There will be strong deceptions—false signs and wonders performed by Satan’s power, sent to deceive—if possible—even the elect. We must be equipped to discern what is true and what is not. To walk safely through the difficulties ahead we need the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit to guide and protect us. So, let’s consider the Holy Spirit’s role in the Last Days.
Who is the Holy Spirit? Why is the Holy Spirit important in your life? Possibly you’re a new Christian or maybe you’re new to the Spirit-filled life, and these are some of the questions you’ve asked. It’s possible that your background involves religious training that avoided speaking about the Holy Spirit. Maybe as a new Christian you’ve never even heard that the Holy Spirit exists or is relevant in this day. But I assure you, the Holy Spirit is critically important for you to live a successful Christian life—especially in the Last Days.
One of the most important aspects of living the life of a Christian is to understand the significance of the Holy Spirit in your life. Understanding how the Holy Spirit helps you, can make the difference between mediocrity or success. It can also mean the difference between life and death. Jesus, the Son of God, relied on the Holy Spirit to fulfill His earthly ministry. How much more do we need that superior guidance and power?
Jesus illustrated the importance of the Holy Spirit to His disciples when He explained why it was important for Him to leave them when He said, “Nevertheless 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 depart, I will send Him to you” (John 16:7). If you continue reading through verse 16 you understand more clearly how important it was for the Holy Spirit to come and what He provides believers. Jesus knew that every believer needed the Holy Spirit to comfort, counsel, convict, empower and guide. The Holy Spirit is the One who distributes God’s gifts and empowers believers to endure and overcome in their Christian life.
You may be thinking, Well, I received the Holy Spirit when I got saved, so there’s nothing more I need to do, right? Yes, the Holy Spirit is the One who convicted you of sin and of your need for a Savior. He is also the One who gave you a new spirit when you were born-again. We cannot become a Christian without the trans-formative power of the Holy Spirit in our life through the new birth. However, in addition to this supernatural event, scripture teaches us that there is a deeper filling that all Christians need in order to walk in overcoming power.
The disciples were saved when they believed on Jesus as Messiah. However, we see a marked transformation in their lives and ministry following the baptism of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost (Acts 2:1-18). God sent the Holy Spirit to earth to dwell in fullness in every believer in order to empower them with God’s power (John 14:15 -17).
The purpose of the Holy Spirit in a Christian’s life is to:
“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.” (John 16:13-15). The Holy Spirit teaches you about the things of God. He brings to mind and enlightens Scripture and brings deeper understanding of all spiritual things.
Guide and Help you
Even when you and I don’t know how to pray or how to handle certain situations, the Holy Spirit knows. He is the One who helps you beyond your personal capabilities. When we require supernatural guidance, it is the Holy Spirit who provides what we need. “Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.” (Romans 8:26).
In the last days more than ever, we will need to rely on the Holy Spirit for protection, as well as guidance and understanding of what is true and what is deception. We need His power to overcome. Start today to rely more on the Holy Spirit. Learn to hear His voice and sense His promptings. Be quick to respond so that He will continue to communicate with you.
Reveal truth to you
The Holy Spirit protects you from being led astray from the teachings of Jesus. “But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you [a]will abide in Him” (1 John 2:27). One of the primary ways the Holy Spirit reveals truth is when we read God’s Word, which is a supernatural, living communication from God. As you feed your spirit with God’s Word, the Holy Spirit will teach you, correct doctrine, give guidance and alert you to truths you need to know.
No matter what situations come your way, the Holy Spirit strengthens you and gives you the power to handle whatever you face. “…that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man…” (Ephesians 3:16). The power of the Holy Spirit enabled the disciples of Christ to turn the world upside down with the powerful preaching of the gospel. They could not have accomplished this in their own strength. Jesus promised that when He departed, He would send the Spirit to live within them and empower them in a miraculous way. “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8).
We want to encourage you today. Know that wherever you are, whatever you are dealing with, you are not left alone. The Holy Spirit is with you and desires to help you. Begin thanking God for sending you the Holy Spirit. Invite the Holy Spirit to be active in your life. Fully surrender your life to Him and give Him control. He will only go where He is sincerely invited.
Thank Him for helping you through each day. Thank Him for teaching you and revealing truth to you. Thank Him for giving you power to overcome. Whatever God has called you to do you can do because… with God nothing is impossible.
