Luke 12:32 So don’t be afraid, little flock. For it gives your Father great happiness to give you the Kingdom.
Matthew 17:5 But even as he spoke, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy. Listen to him.”
Listen to Jesus. The time of the law & prophets is over. Now it is time for Grace & Mercy.
The role of the Holy Spirit is to glorify Jesus.
John 15:26-27 “But I will send you the Advocate—the Spirit of truth. He will come to you from the Father and will testify all about me. And you must also testify about me because you have been with me from the beginning of my ministry.
Testify – eyewitness account.
The Holy Spirit gives us an eyewitness account.
What does the Holy Spirit testify?
Your sins – past, present, future – are all forgiven
Hebrews 10:15,18 And the Holy Spirit also testifies that this is so. For he says, And when sins have been forgiven, there is no need to offer any more sacrifices.
Holy Spirit saw what Jesus endured on the Cross. He knows it is all under the blood.
You are a child of God
Romans 8:16 For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children.
God is not holding the kingdom back from us.
Don’t be afraid to ask God for your needs.
God loves you
Romans 5:5 And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.
Understanding how much God loves us is a work of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus is fulfilled when we receive His love.
John 14:27 “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.
Your default mode is peace. The Holy Spirit will bring you back into peace.
Rest is not no activity but Spirit directed activity.
2 Timothy 1:6-7 This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you when I laid my hands on you. For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
When you get out of peace, activate the gift of Tongues. Tongues is the only Spiritual Gift we can fan into flame. When you pray in tongues power, love and sound mind will be ours.
2 Corinthians 3:18 So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.
Spirit transforms us into the image of God.
