The Presence of the Holy Spirit

One may ask who is the Holy Spirit? He is the Spirit of truth. He’s God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Each operation has many functions.  The Holy Spirit is a person.  When we talk about the Holy Spirit, we are actually talking about God and His Son, Jesus Christ.  When Jesus ascended to Heaven He said He would not leave us comfortless, but He will send us another comforter or helper.  If you have been born again, (given your life to Jesus) the Holy Spirit now dwells on the inside of you. He will lead and guide you by His Spirit.  He will never leave you or forsake you; He’s with you all the time.  The Holy Spirit came to complete us.  Holy.Spirit.1.The Holy Spirit enables us to know the truth and to live the truth. The Holy Spirit will convict us of our sins. And when we allow our lives to be control by the Holy Spirit we will have the power to live a life that is pleasing to God. In creation He was called the breath of God or the wind of God.  The Holy Spirit is very sensitive and He will make us sensitive to the Word of God. The Holy Spirit will help us to do the Father’s Will for our lives if we listen and follow His leading.  Romans 8:10-11 says And if Christ is in you your body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of Him that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He that raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit that dwells in you.  Romans 8:14 says for as many as are led by the Spirit of God they are the sons of God.  John 16:13 says Howbeit when He the Spirit of truth is 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. The very presence of God Spirit lives on the inside of every born again believer and He is called the Holy Spirit. He is a person not an “it” He is more than just a mere influence He is the infinite God residing within our hearts.  According to 2nd Corinthians 4:7 (World Wide English version) it reads, this is something of great value within us, but we are like pots made of earth and clay.  This power is greater than any other power but it comes from God not from us. The Holy Spirit reveals Jesus to us according to John 16:13-14. The Holy Spirit is a Comforter, Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, and Standby (John 16:7). Paul said in 1st Corinthians 2:4-5… And my speech and preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power. It is that power of the Holy Spirit that’s working on the inside of you that Paul is speaking of here. When you give the Holy Spirit free course to move in your life it is not about your ability (what you can do) or your intellect (how much you know) it is about being led by the Spirit of God. Romans 8:14 states, for as many are led by the Spirit of God they are the sons of God.  In order to be led by the Spirit of God you must know God.  And that come by way of spending time in the presence of God. Developing an intimacy relationship with Him through the Word of God, Prayer, Praise, Worship, and Thanksgiving. The Holy Spirit is a Teacher. 1 John 2:27 states, But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you, but as the same anointing teacheth you all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you ye shall abide in him. Holy.Spirit.2The Holy Spirit is so much more. However, the reason why many believers of God do not experience the power of the Spirit though He actually dwells in their hearts is that they lack reverence.  We must trust the Holy Spirit the same way we trust Jesus the Son and God the Father. Because it is God’s desire for each believer to be filled with His Spirit to the fullness.  The plans God has for your life can only be revealed through the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 2: 9-11). God has prepared things for you before the foundation of the world. And the Holy Spirit knows God’s plan for your life. Only through a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit will you discover all God has prepared for your life. No one knows the things that God has already prepared for those that love Him. It’s very vital for you to get to know the Holy Spirit for yourself. We thank God for your Pastor and those in leadership positions but your pastor cannot be replaced for the Holy Spirit.  Spending personal time in His presence will grant you access to the Holy Spirit. You’ll be more in tune to hear His voice and follow His leading when you’re not sure about some things.  Also, you must be careful not to grieve the Holy Spirit. For example, the Holy Spirit is grieved when He shows up to bless you or impart to you but He finds blessing blockers in your life. Such as un-forgiveness, strife, pride, fornication and so forth. These things are blessing blockers and will grieve the Holy Spirit. Without the Holy Spirit you are living another life. Without the Holy Spirit you are busy doing things you were not born to do. Without the Holy Spirit you are misusing time, talents, and gifts. The secrets about you is in the Holy Spirit. Only the Spirit can reveal the secrets about you. The Holy Spirit will reveal the revelation about you and who you were created to be. The Holy Spirit will tell you the truth about you even when you don’t won’t to hear the truth. In the Presence of the Holy Spirit you’ll find peace, joy, and happiness. I encourage you to get to know the Holy Spirit for He will be your best friend for life!

Why Win Souls?

It started with Adam and ended with Jesus. Romans 5:12(AMP) says, “Therefore, as sin came into the world through one man, and death as the result of sin, so death spread to all men, [no one being able to stop it or escape it’s power] because all men sinned”. Adam’s sin separated us from God in the beginning. “For just as by one man’s disobedience, (failing to hear, heedlessness, and carelessness), the many were constituted sinners, so by one Man’s obedience the many will be constituted righteous, (made acceptable to God, brought into right standing with Him)” (Romans 5:19 AMP). We were helpless in getting back in fellowship with God, so Christ came at the right time for the ungodly (Romans 5:6). God showed His love towards us while we were still sinners Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). Go ye.png

God’s purpose is to bring man back into fellowship with Himself. James 5:20 states “let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins”.

God has given the believer the ability to be an effective soul winner through:

  1. The Holy Spirit, which gives us the power to be, witnesses. (Acts 1:8)
  2. The Name of Jesus, which gives us the authority. (Philippians 2:9-11; Matthew 28:18-20).
  3. The Word, which gives us the knowledge.

We are a part of changing people’s eternal destiny (2 Corinthians 5:18, 19). The harvest of souls is great and the laborers are few, so we must pray for more laborers (Matthew 9:37, 38).

Therefore, we cannot allow anything to hinder us from winning souls even our negative thinking. Let God use you to change nations for the Glory of God!

YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN

There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born [a]again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter    the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” John 3:1-18 TO BE BORN AGAIN YOU MUST COME THROUGH JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF! John 14:6  6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. Romans 10:9-10  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead,attention thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:13  13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Know that your mommy can’t save you. Your daddy can’t save you. Your friends can’t save you. You got to give your life to the Lord today. He’s the only way. He’s the only one that can help you. He’s the only one that can deliver you. Jesus is the “only” way to the Father. There’s no other way. He can do it for you if you trust Him. If you believe Him. If you confess Him. If you give your life to the Lord today. He’ll walk with you. He’ll talk with you. Give your life to the Lord today. And when you give your life to the Lord. You don’t have to be in fear. You don’t have to be in fear of anyone hurting you. You don’t have to fear anyone abusing or misusing you. When you give your life to the Lord He will help you. He will remove the fear. He will remove the doubt. He will remove the hurt, the pain, the disappointments, and so forth. He wants you to be sold out to Him. He wants you to walk in Holiness. He wants the best for your life. He wants you to lay it all down at the Altar and surrender all to Him so He can help you. He wants every spirit of Heaviness to be stripped off of you. Let go of the disappointments. Let go of the pain. Let go of the Hurt. Let it go and lay it down at the Altar so He can refine you to be meet for the Master Use. When you’re going through different things, trials, and situations in your life and you don’t know what to do or what to say. That’s when you got to get desperate and cry out to God. You got to be desperate! You got to say SAVE ME JESUS! Save me Lord! Desperate faith says, I’m tired of this devil messing with my mind. I’m tired of this devil trying to destroy my family. I’m tired of this devil trying to destroy my marriage, my children. I’m tired. I don’t know what to do, what to say, which way to go, I don’t know what’s going on in my life. Save me Lord Jesus! I’ve tried to do it on my own and I just can’t do it. I’ve tried to do it my way but my way isn’t work. I’ve tried the rest now I’m ready to try to best! Save me Lord Jesus. Here I am Lord. I give my life to you. You got to cry out just like Blind Bartimaeus. He said Son of David. Have mercy on me. They tried to tell him to be quiet. He got even louder and cried out even the more. Son of David have mercy on me. And in Mark chapter 10, Jesus said go your way your faith has made you whole. In Luke 8: 43-48, there was a woman who had an issue of blood for 12 long years. And she pressed her way through the crowd and said if I can just touched the “Hem” of His garment I know I will be made whole. How many you need a touched from the Lord.  Surrender all to Him. Better yet, learn the faith of the Canaanite woman in Matthew 15. She cried out saying have mercy on me O Lord, Son of David. My daughter is severely demon possessed. Jesus said, it’s not good to take the children bread and give it to the dogs. And the woman said Jesus, Son of David, even the little dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master table. (Paraphrase) She said, I know you was sent to the children of Israel, and I know you’re the Son of God but you got something we need. We need you Lord. These demons are tormenting my daughter and YOU GOT THE POWER! And Jesus said, O Woman! O Woman! GREAT I YOUR FAITH! GREAT IS YOUR FAITH.  Let it be to you as you desire! And her daughter was healed that very hour. YOU GOT TO PRESS IN ON JESUS AND GIVE IT ALL TO THE LORD. LAY IT ALL DOWN! LET HIM SAVE YOUR LIFE TODAY! GIVE YOUR LIFE TO THE LORD! YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN! Deuteronomy 30:19 He said 19 This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live. This day you must choose. This is the season. This is the time. Jesus is coming back and you don’t won’t to be outside the Ark of the Covenant when He return. And you must choose what side you’re going to be on.

  1. The Lord side or the devil side
  2. Righteousness or UN-righteousness
  3. Holiness or UN-holy.
  4. Darkness or Light.

Choose whom this day you will serve. He is the Savior of the World. He is the light of the World. When God said let there be Light (who is God); and Light (who is God) became. And He who is the “Light” saturated Himself all over the World because He is the Light of the world and the darkness comprehend it not! This world can’t function without God. YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN! And when you get born again. You have to work out your own Salvation. Meaning you got to get in the Word of God every day. You have to study the Word of God every day. You have to fast and pray. You have to watch and pray. You have to work out your own salvation. God is not going to make you read the word of God. He’s not going to make you pray. He’s not going to do it.  You are a free moral agent. You Choose.  You got to pick up your bible and read it so you’ll know what God is saying to you. But this is what happen many times. We get save and we leave it at that thinking we can live in this world and this devil not whoop our tail. The enemy will rip you a part if you don’t know who you are. And the only way you can know who you are is by spending time in the Presence of the Lord. Read your Bible, Pray, Fast, lay in His Presence and fellowship with Him. Stay in the Word of God until you become the living Word that can be read by any man. It’s your manual of instructions. You got to eat it, chew it, swallow it, and digest it.

Prayer of Salvation: Say Lord, here I am, standing in the need of Salvation. Take me as your own. I need you. My life is nothing without you. I can’t make it without you Lord. I cry out to you right now. I repent of my sins. I asked that you forgive me. According to Romans 10:9-10 I believe in my heart and confess with my mouth that you raised Jesus from the dead and He is the son of the Living God. And in Romans 10:13 you said whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. I thank you Lord for saving me and accepting me as your beloved child. In Jesus name! Amen!

VoyageATL - Image. Rewriting the Trailblazers

What should we know about Outreach International Foundation Ministry and Tamike Brown Ministries? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
And what set me apart from others. My heart burns for the things of God. My heart burns to help God’s people by reaching out to bring them into the Kingdom of God using whatever method possible the Lord will allow me to use as I’m led by the Holy Spirit. And one of the things the Lord told me is to preach out of passion for the souls. Preach as though I see the people coming into the Kingdom of God. So sometimes, when I’m preaching or teaching so hard I’m preaching and teaching out of love and compassion for the souls! It’s rooted!
