The Ministry of The Holy Spirit?

13 09 2011

Christian radio and television promotes the Holy Spirit to such an extent, that Jesus Christ has been “evicted” off the screen. Everything seems to revolve around the work, the ministry, the gifts, etc etc of the Holy Spirit! We can attend Holy Spirit Seminars and Holy Spirit Conferences. So much emphasis is put on this Special Person of the Godhead, and yet Jesus Christ explained the true role of the Precious Holy Spirit. Let’s look at what He said:

Joh 15:26 KJV (Jesus speaking) But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

Who will the Holy Spirit testify of? That’s right. Jesus Christ!

Joh 16:13-14 KJV 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 shew you things to come. (14) He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

John says that the Holy Spirit will not speak of Himself! How different this is to what we are seeing on Christian Television? He then goes on to say that the Holy Spirit will glorify Jesus Christ and not Himself!!! Once again, how different this is to what we see in the media?

The Holy Spirit is so sensitive and gentle and He will not “over-power” man-made idiosyncrasies. He has been sent by Jesus Christ to reveal Christ in us, to us. That is His main focus. This is why Jesus says in the following verse, these precious words….

Joh 14:17-20 KJV 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. (18) I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. (19) Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. (20) At that day (on the day of Pentecost) ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
