Living By Faith

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!

THE UNSEEN CONNECTION

Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him:  but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. (John 16:14)

 

“Every person can have a relationship with the Holy Spirit.” – Mark Hankins

 

You have a partner to walk out your new life with in Christ. His name is the Holy Spirit or the Holy Ghost. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth. If you would listen to Him, He would keep you out of a lot of trouble — trouble in business, in relationships, and in church.

In John 16:14, Jesus describes the work of the Holy Ghost as the Spirit of Truth. You may be thinking, “Truth doesn’t excite me.”  What does? The casino?  Remember, they didn’t build that place with winners! They are even glad when you win because you will stick around and lose another $5,000. Then you will go to church and not even pay your tithes. You need a slap on the head!

As you read your Bible, you need to invite your Holy Spirit partner by saying, “Holy Spirit, let’s read the Bible. Help me and guide me into all truth. Show me something, Holy Spirit.”  Since the Holy Spirit wrote it, He ought to know what it means!

 

Confession: The Holy Spirit is my partner. He will help me to walk out my new life with Christ. He will guide me into all truth!

HONOR THE BLOOD OF JESUS

Through the blood of his cross…you are reconciled to God by Him…In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in His sight. (Colossians 1:20-22)

 

“We, as believers, are accepted into the presence of God, having perfect fellowship with the Father God because of what Christ has done for us.” – Mark Hankins

 

We honor the blood of Jesus as we lift our voice in faith declaring what it has accomplished and what it is accomplishing. The spoken Word of God is the voice of the Blood Covenant. Every Word has blood in it. The blood must be applied by faith.

According to your faith so be it unto you. There is no such thing as passive faith.  Faith acts like the Bible is true. Live by faith and continually apply the blood.  There is power in the blood.

God sees us in Christ. We have full assurance of faith to go right into the very presence of God because we have been washed in the blood of Jesus. We are in Christ by faith in the blood of Jesus. Let us honor the blood of Jesus and confess daily who we are and what we have in Christ Jesus.

 

Confession: I have faith in the blood of Jesus. In Christ I have redemption through His blood! (Colossians 1:14)

IN CHRIST: ACCESS TO THE FATHER

And the veil in the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom. (Mark 15:38)

 

“God sees us in the blood of Jesus and welcomes us into His presence.” – Mark Hankins

 

When Jesus was crucified, the veil in the temple that separated man from the Holy of Holies was torn from the top to the bottom. This signified that the Holy Place was open for every man to enter into the closest fellowship with God. In Hebrews, the Apostle Paul says that veil was the body of Jesus. When His body was broken for us, we were granted access into Christ. When His blood was

shed, we were accepted in Christ. In Him we have the closest fellowship with the Father God. The veil in the temple was the body of Jesus and we are in Christ. When He was wounded we were engrafted into Him. Now we are new creatures in Christ.

Through the blood of the everlasting covenant you will be made perfect in every good work to do His will. You will be launched into a new level of victory and blessing as you apply the blood constantly with boldness and full assurance of faith! (Hebrews 10:19-25)

 

Confession: I have been granted access to the Father by the blood of Jesus. I am the righteousness of God in Christ!
