Living By Faith

JESUS ON THE INSIDE

All things that the Father hath are mine; therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you. (John 16:15)

 

“The Holy Spirit is your “unseen connection” between heaven and earth.” – Mark Hankins

 

You are in union with Christ by virtue of the Spirit of God. Therefore, whatever is being said in heaven is also said in your spirit. You don’t have the same capacity as God, but you do have the same quality of life that God has. You can enjoy a quality of life that doesn’t come from the Republicans, Democrats, welfare, or social programs. You can enjoy a quality of life that no company can guarantee you, with no special help when you retire. You can say, “It is good because I have the same life in me that is in God right now.”

You don’t have to adjust your spirit’s TV set according to the filth, sin, lust, and violence that are all around you. You can adjust your set to what is playing in heaven: holiness, fire, purity, love, righteousness, and glory. I’ve got my set hooked up to heaven. How? I’ve got an unseen connection: the Holy Ghost. I am adjusting my set right now. It is tuned in. Where does all this happen? It happens in your spirit once you are born again!

 

Confession: By the Spirit of God, I have the same quality of life on the inside of me that God has!

INSIDE INFORMATION

He shall glorify me:  for he shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you. (John 16:14)

 

“When you are full of the Holy Spirit, He will glorify Jesus!” – Mark Hankins

 

If you will spend time with the Holy Ghost, you will learn to hear His voice and He will tell you what is going to happen a year from now, three years from now, or five years from now. He will tell you what is going to happen so you can get ready for it. The Holy Ghost can show you tragedy that is about to come in your life, in your children’s lives, or in someone else’s life if there isn’t a change. He will show you this not to produce fear, but so that you can change it in prayer.  This is one of the new creation benefits. With the Holy Spirit inside of you, you will have inside information!

If things are happening in your life that are not bringing glory to Jesus, you can change them by praying in the Holy Ghost. He wants everyone to see what Jesus has done for God’s own.

 

Confession:  I am filled with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit in me glorifies Jesus. My body is the temple of the Holy Ghost. I have the benefit of the Holy Spirit inside of me giving me inside information about my life, my family, and my future!

REVEAL THINGS TO COME

For he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak. (John 16:13)

 

“If you hang out with the Holy Ghost, He will show you things to come about your life and future.” – Mark Hankins

 

What does it mean, “Whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak”?  Who does the Holy Spirit hang out with? He hangs out with the Father and the Son, so whatever He hears them say is what He says. Verse 13 concludes,“and he will shew you things to come.”

If you want to know what is happening, you do not have to call the psychic network and ask, “What do you see in my future?” I see you going broke if you stay on that line very long! Four dollars a minute, yet you come to church and put in a dollar. You need another slap! You would pay four dollars a minute to talk to a lying devil? If it’s not a devil, it’s a fool who looks under cards! When someone from Louisiana calls they say, “I see squirrel hunting in your future. I see crawdads in your future.”  That’s ridiculous!

Be still and get with the Holy Ghost; talk to Him. Worship God and worship Jesus, then say, “Holy Spirit, help me read the Word. Show me things to come. I don’t want to miss the will of God for my life. Help me.”

 

Confession: The Holy Spirit is my Helper. As I listen, He will show me the will of God for my life!

YOUR HELPER

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth; for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak:  and he will show you things to come. (John 16:13)

 

“The Holy Spirit never brings condemnation. He always reveals the blood of Jesus. He always lifts and helps.” – Smith Wigglesworth

 

The Holy Spirit will keep you from reading the Word with your head alone. He wants to show you the Bible in the light of redemption. He will show you the weightier matters and things that are of first importance. The Holy Spirit will help you read your Bible. He will show you the things that are the most important. He won’t take something out of context and mess your head up with it. The devil can quote the Bible and get you all messed up. But the Holy Spirit will show you the whole picture. He will show you who you are and what you have in Christ.

Every person can have a relationship with the Holy Spirit. The moment you are born again, you pass from death to life, and the Spirit of God comes to live on the inside of you.

 

Confession: Thank God for the Holy Ghost! I have passed from death to life and the Spirit of God is living on the inside of me!

INGREDIENTS IN THE BLOOD

By the blood (that sealed, ratified) the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament). Strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will. (Hebrews 13:20-21)

 

“You will be launched into a new level of victory and blessing as you apply the blood.’ – Mark Hankins

 

When we look at the New Testament, we see a full printout of the ingredients that are in the blood of Jesus. We can see what God sees in the blood. In order to purchase a million dollar life insurance policy, a sample of your blood would be required before you would be approved for the policy. They would send the blood to the lab to study it. Under powerful microscopes they would see what ingredients are in your blood. A few days later you would receive a full-page printout with a detailed description of what is in your blood.

A thorough investigation of the blood of Jesus reveals every necessary ingredient for full salvation. There is righteousness, forgiveness, redemption, sanctification, healing, victory, blessing, boldness, prosperity, and power in the blood of Jesus!

 

Confession: Through the blood of Jesus, I am strengthened and equipped with everything good that I may carry out His will!
