Sometimes I feel like I’m about to explode. Last night after ministry school, I felt the power of God on me so intensely that I had to lay down and simply soak in Him. I’d like to share somethings that Holy Spirit shared with me, but first let me give you a little background on where I’m currently at.
Right now I volunteer at my church’s healing rooms, we have seen some radical miracles there and it’s so awesome to see God’s glory first-hand.
Basically the process for us right now is to really set the atmosphere, so we worship, impart on each other, get hit with His joy and just have a blast together. God becomes so real to us as we simply play in His river of life together. And then the sick and hurt come in and they are dramatically touched and healed by Him.
I’m also volunteering at an online ministry that trains people through Curry Blake. He has trained over 40k people with a ridiculous track record of success (over 70%).
Curry is more focused on the authority of Scripture. He’s not as concerned about setting atmospheres because he believes we should be equipped everywhere and anywhere we go. And we won’t be carrying our worship music with us 24/7 to set atmospheres.
So I’ve been going through two different spectrums.
Focus on the Spirit and what He is doing. And focus on Scripture and what it promises.
Here’s a simple breakdown…
Spirit – Setting atmospheres, being sensitive, words of knowledge about healing, and releasing inheritance.
Scripture – Jesus paid for our healing, He commanded us to heal the sick and cast out devils, sickness is of the enemy not God.
Now – I will say this, Peter walked around and his shadow healed people. He didn’t need to command any spirits out of people. Food for thought.
In light of all these things, I’ve been seeking God for an understanding that ties them both together.
My cry to God is Holy Spirit what are you doing? And how does this align with the authority of Scripture and what Jesus has done?
And last night I felt this come upon my spirit: “Holy Spirit is doing what Jesus the Son has paid for because of God the Father’s great love for the world.”
I believe this is a key.
Notice that it contains all revealed Persons of God.
Holy Spirit is revealing what Jesus has done. He is accomplishing and receiving everything the Lamb’s suffering paid for. In fact, I’d like to show you something radical.
This is a video of a Polish girl who doesn’t know a lick of English, but she is found praying in the Spirit in ENGLISH… So we get to hear first hand an idea of what Holy Spirit is praying through us. And I find this fascinating.
Isn’t that incredible?
I’d like to point out a couple things about this video…
1. Notice Holy Spirit is not preaching the gospel to people, but setting an atmosphere.
2. Holy Spirit is revealing the REALITY of Jesus and who He is.
3. See how fast she prays? She doesn’t even know what she is saying, but Holy Spirit does!
I believe there is a realm that we are called to walk in. It contains both the reality of what Christ paid for and the experience of witnessing Holy Spirit reveal it to us and through us.
John 16:12-15 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.
So, next time you want to know what is Holy Spirit doing? Just look at what Jesus Christ did.
