Acts 1: 8 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Mankind has been known to embark on great exploits, from climbing Mount Everest, traveling to the moon, swimming across the Atlantic Ocean, building the world’s first tallest building and taming the wildest of beasts, all for accolades and recognition. Each achievement has been possible through human strength, intelligence, financial sponsorship, ingenuity and creativity. However, the life of the believer is quite the contrary. While the world spectates at the accomplishments of these great feats, the disciple of YESHUA ignores these worldy decorations and honours in exchange for engaging in soul-saving.

All of our efforts are fruitless when the benefactor – the HOLY SPIRIT a.k.a paraklet or parakletos “an advocate, intercessor, a consoler, comforter, helper”. The Holy Spirit is also referenced as “The Promise”(Luke 24:29) , “The Promised Power” (Eph 1: 13 -14)is not present in our life. Notice how Jesus isn’t RECOMMENDING that we become His witnesses but, COMMANDING that we BE WITNESSES!

The words that Christ instructed the disciples 3000 years ago are the same directives that lead us today, “DO NOT BE MY WITNESS WITHOUT RECEIVING THE HOLY SPIRIT BECAUSE RECEIVING HIM PERSONIFIES AND EMBODIES MY POWER THAT WILL EQUIP YOU FOR MY ANOINTED WORK!”

Power in the Greek is “dynamis” meaning “strength power, ability,
1. inherent power, power residing in a thing by virtue of its nature, or which a person or thing exerts and puts forth
2. power for performing miracles

With the power of the HOLY SPIRIT, your command is to DECLARE, ANNONCE, WIELD the WORD OF GOD to every strategic corner of dirt that He has placed you! That same power is HIS TOOL for miracles, signs and wonders THROUGH YOU! You don’t need a title in the church, a seminary degree, or join a Pastor’s association in order for YESHUA to use plain ol’ Jane and Joe Blow like you, no way Jose!! He is waiting to hear the words, “Yes, send me ABBA, I will go and I will highlight YOUR POWER, not mine for YOUR HOLY GLORY!

If we want to be witnesses, we need to be filled with the Holy Spirit. If we want to break the generational curse of murder in our family, we need to be filled with the Holy Spirit! If we want to be used in healing the sickly boy with cancer, we need to be filled with the Holy Spirit. If we want to cast out a demon out of a girl who is being tormented every night, we need to be filled with the Holy Spirit.The best training program for evangelism is of no spiritual use, no impact to anyone WITHOUT THE FILLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT!
Be filled with Ruach HaQodesh! Ask Him!

In His Name,
