As we live in the Last Days it is important to major in the majors. Every believer on earth has a most urgent need to successfully navigate through troubled waters. it is more important than ever to understand and walk in the power of the Holy Spirit.
There are ongoing 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 and in the Believer’s life.
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 difficult times.
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. Likewise, we need that superior guidance and power to successfully walk in salvation and obedience.
Jesus illustrated the importance of the Holy Spirit to His disciples, when He explained why it was so important for Him to leave. 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. This is why the disciples preached the gospel of salvation and then prayed for new believers to receive the deeper infilling of the Holy Spirit.
“Paul, having passed through the upper regions, came to Ephesus. And finding some disciples he said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” So they said to him, “We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit” Acts 19:1-2.
“Continuing on in verse 6, it says, “And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied” Acts 19:6.
Whether you have been taught about the Holy Spirit correctly or not even heard about Him, the Bible is clear. As you read the book of Acts you see over and over the effects of the Holy Spirit at work.
Being filled with the Holy Spirit is much like our salvation. You have an initial introduction and choice to receive. Then you choose to walk daily in the Spirit. It is your choice–and one we are asked to make as true Christians.
Too often we try to simply “add” Jesus to OUR life. Requiring Him to “stay in His place” and not embarrass us or ask something of us that is uncomfortable. But if we are truly saved, we desire and choose to obey the Holy Spirit’s leading. It is the Holy Spirit that convicts us and teaches us and leads us. If we are not willing to give up sin and selfishness to follow Jesus Christ, we must ask ourselves who is really on the throne of our life.
Spiritual life is different from the world’s life. We cannot shy away because it seem to “kooky” or un-natural. Walking in the Holy Spirit is spiritually natural and He is provided to be the core part of our New Birth life.
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 inside every believer in order to empower them with God’s power (John 14:15 -17) and to convict them of sin and to lead them into paths of righteousness.
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 persevere and 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.
Reveals truth to you
The Holy Spirit protects you from being led away 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 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, gives guidance and alerts 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 the miracles and overcoming life style in their own strength. Jesus promised 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. The Holy Spirit inhabits those who take themselves off the throne, lay down pride and humble themselves. When this occurs, He has a place from which to reign. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Jesus Christ in you.
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.

Thousands of Miscarriages Following COVID-19 Injections Reported in VAERS are Being Censored as an Entire Generation is Being Sterilized
Now that we have a full year of injecting people with an experimental gene altering shot for COVID-19, we can conclusively state that this is most definitely a weapon of mass destruction, as it not only kills and cripples people in the present, but it destroys unborn children in the womb as well, and is most likely making an entire generation of child-bearing aged females infertile. And the facts that support this statement are found in the government’s own database of Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), as incomplete as that data set is. Through December 31, 2021, there are 3,147 fetal deaths recorded following the COVID-19 shots into pregnant women, or into women of child-bearing age who became pregnant shortly after receiving one of the experimental COVID-19 injections (such as ectopic pregnancies). Using the under-reporting multiplier of 41X, the truer number of fetal deaths following COVID-19 injections becomes 129,027 fetal deaths. That’s a 3,834% increase in fetal deaths compared to fetal deaths following FDA-approved vaccines for the previous 31 years, using just the government data reported in VAERS. And if someone like myself just sitting at home behind a computer searching the U.S. Government’s VAERS database can see this, you can be sure that all the scientists and doctors who work for the government that also have access to this data see it too. Stop calling this a “conspiracy theory” and wake up! This is population reduction planning. This is genocide. These are crimes against humanity. THIS IS PURE EVIL!
