HOLY SPIRIT: OUR REVEALER

TEXT: 2KINGS 6:8- 13
The ministry of the Holy Spirit is inseparable from the lives of believers. When Jesus Christ was ascending, he said he will send us the comforter that will teach us all things and will remind us of everything he had said to us. For any believer to be able to function and dwell in the will of God, Holy Spirit must be active in his or her life.
The scripture says in Amos 3:7 that God does not do anything without revealing it (through the Holy Spirit) to His prophets. The ministry of Elisha was successful because he walked hand in hand with the Holy Spirit. In our text; the king of Aram was at war with Israel, he was planning to set up a camp in a particular place for the king of Israel, while he was still planning this, the Holy Spirit had revealed the plot to prophet Elisha.The prophet sent word to the king of Israel to keep off from the place.
In 2kings 6:30-33, the king was angry with Elisha and he vowed to kill him, Elisha was sitting in his house with some elders. The king sent a messenger to him, but before he arrived, the Holy Spirit had revealed the king's plan to Elisha.
The Holy Spirit also revealed the bad that Gehazi did when he went back to Naaman to collect the gift rejected by Elisha, after Naaman’s healing of leprosy (2 Kings 5).
In Acts of the Apostle 21: 10-11 The Holy Spirit revealed to a prophet named Agabus what will happen to Paul in Jerusalem. He used Paul’s belt to describe how he would be bound in Jerusalem for preaching the gospel. Though Paul went, but he already had the knowledge of what will happen to him there.
The disciples were able to preach the gospel successfully with the help of Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit accompanied them everywhere they went to preach, and He tells them where to go and where not to go.
As believers; we need to constantly live in the Spirit, we should be filled with the Spirit always. The Holy Spirit is more than able to reveal to you ideas that will change your life forever, he can reveal to you the plan of the enemies. He is able to tell you what will happen in the future, he is capable of revealing to you the solution to long standing problem.

Holy Spirit can only dwell in a holy place, for the spirit of God to dwell in us; we need to purge ourselves of any unholy things. Ask the lord to cleanse you and endue you with the Holy Spirit today.
