Revelation in the Holy Spirit

God has prepared many wonders & treasures for the child of God, but these cannot be comprehended by human means.
It is only the Holy Spirit who can unlock & reveal the deep truths, wisdom & mystery of God’s divine plan of salvation.
The Holy Spirit lives in the believer from the moment of salvation & through the new birth (John 3:3-8).
It is through the indwelling Spirit that the light & revelation of God’s truth comes to His children.
This is a Spirit-to-spirit communion & communication which is beyond our human senses, intellect, or intelligence.
Revelation must take place in the heart (spirit) before illumination comes to the brain (head – mind & reasoning). SELAH
We will think further about the revelation the Holy Spirit brings to Christians today.


But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. 1 Corinthians 2:9-12 NKJV


The Holy Spirit is the great revealer, the unlocker & discloser, of the wisdom, secrets & mysteries of the Lord.
That is one of His jobs & functions as He makes known the profound & deep truths of the divine plan & purpose.
The Spirit searches diligently, deeply & dependably the deepest & innermost things of God. SELAH
He then makes them known FREELY to those that truly love the Lord – believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Holy Spirit reveals so that the children of God can receive!! Revelations prepared & made ready for the family!!
The Holy Spirit, & Him alone, takes us out of the place of information & into the realm of revelation. SELAH
The believer is to live & operate with revelation from God rather than just exist with human knowledge & understanding.

The Holy Spirit is continuously exploring (mining) the heart & mind of the Father.
God’s heart intent (passions & desires), deepest thoughts & hidden secrets are only fully understood by the Spirit of God.
Having accessed them the Holy Spirit is then releasing (making available) that revelation to be received by the believer.
The Spirit of God reveals the heart & mind of God unto the child of God. Hallelujah!!!
We live in the flow of spiritual realities & profound truth from our heavenly Father, through the Son, via the Spirit.
All this is made possible by the sacrificial death, resurrection & ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ. SELAH

Having received these great spiritual truths & realities from the Holy Spirit we in turn are to make them known (1 Corinthians 2:13).
We are to speak & declare that the divine plan is plain to see in Christ’s life, death, resurrection, & ascension.
We are to keep proclaiming that Christ is coming back to bring in the fullness of God’s Kingdom & to judge the living & the dead.
It is all made plain & clear in Jesus Christ, God’s Son, our Saviour & the world’s true Lord & King. SELAH
You and I, have the wonderful privilege of knowing Christ so that we can make Him known. Hallelujah!!!
With great privilege comes great responsibility. SELAH

For Reflection

  • In what ways am I living from revelation from God rather than my own knowledge & understanding?
  • How healthy & how intimate is my relationship with the Holy Spirit?
  • Meditate upon the Holy Spirit job of receiving form the father to release to the child of God.

A song related to this theme:


Prayer

Heavenly Father,
Thank you that through the Holy Spirit You reveal Your plans & purposes to me,
Give me strength & courage to boldly & faithfully make them known.
Jesus, thank you that through Your amazing life, sacrificial death, glorious resurrection & wondrous ascension,
I have access to, along with the ability to, receive revelation of God’s heart through the ministry of the Holy Spirit.
Holy Spirit help & strengthen my communion & intimacy with You,
That I may be truly open to receive the revelation You long to give.
This I ask in the mighty Name of Jesus.
Amen
