John 16:8 "Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart I will send Him to you. And when He come He will convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment."
The Holy Spirit is the greatest soul winner there is. He can convict of sin like no other. The last couple of weeks Iíve seen so many sinners responding to the risen Christ but it wasnít result of good preaching but rather a result of the Pentecostal power present to convict of sin. So today I would like to show you how the Holy Spirit helps us with the ingathering of the Harvest.
Boldness, Power and Love
Acts 1:8 "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you and you shall be my witnesses."
The Helper enables us to become great power witnesses of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He also fills us with his unconditional love for others and that Love is the very motivation for our quest after souls.
Math 9:36 "when He saw the multitudes he was moved with compassion for themÖ"
We also become very bold when we receive this glories baptism of the Holy Spirit. Let me tell you, we donít need to be so afraid of what people think about the manifestation of the Holy Spirit but rather expose people to this mighty working power and force of the Holy Spirit.
Please do Jesus a favor and let him expose him self in you and on you with mighty manifestations of POWER AND LOVE!
Miracles, Signs and Wonders.
The Helper wants to work miracles while we are preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As we are preaching Jesus to the lost we can expect him to do miracles as signs to the unbelievers that Jesus is resurrected from the dead and the Gospel is true. This is so simple we donít do anything but preaching the Gospel and He does the miracles.
Act 19:11 "Now GOD worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul"
I want you to notice that God worked the miracles, that takes a lot of pressure from you. All you do is preaching Jesus and await the glories manifestation of Power on your very flesh. And watch God do mighty deeds!
I want you to realize that Jesus is right there with you when you preach to the lost, look at Mark 16:20 "And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word with accompanying signs."
Lets expect mighty signs from this day forward as you witness and preach that Gospel.
The best preacher in the world.
The best preacher in the world lives and resides on the inside of you!
He is the preachers of all preachers and his name is the Holy Spirit.
You can fully rely on his ability to preach through you the greatest soul winning messages you have ever heard.
There is a preaching anointing available for each one of us. Luk 4:18 " The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me to preach the Gospel to the poor"
Did you hear that there is an anointing to preach the Gospel. I must tell that I fully rely on that preaching power to take over as Iím proclaiming that Jesus is alive and wants to save the sinner from eternal condemnation.
You see its not about convincing words or elegant words of wisdom or great messages all that is good but not necessary. All we need is that Power of the Holy Spirit to manifest and touch the sinners so they realize the need they have of repentance and forgiveness of their sins. Remember Jesus said that the Helper will convict the world of sin.
The Gospel of the Kingdom must be preached.
We can not let the cares of this world swallow that divine flame and passion for the harvesting of lost souls. We have to bring the these good news of salvation to the world at any cost. He said the Harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few. It is the same problem today within the church. There are many that say yes Lord. But few that are doing the work of a harvester.
Listen to me, Jesus wants to see the full reward of His suffering but he can not preach himself he need you and me to say here am I send me. You see all he is looking for is a willing soul that he can endue with Pentecostal power from on high and make you and me great soul winners by the power working in us and on us.
So accept my challenge today and expect the Helper to be with you for the sake of the harvesting of souls.
