He Glorifies Jesus
The Spirit Of The Lord
4. He Speaks About Jesus and Glorifies Him
The Holy Spirit who reveals the truth about God glorifies Jesus. Jesus said that the Holy Spirit will speak about Him. This means that anyone who claims to work with the Holy Spirit must glorify Jesus .
If we go through the Scriptures, we will see that Jesus is referred to as the way, the word, truth, life, glory, power, mercy, resurrection, light, wisdom, grace. These are all spiritual qualities. When the Bible refers to God as the father of mercies, grace, glory, light etc it means that God is the source, author and only giver of mercy, Life, grace, wisdom etc
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit that will always glorify the word of God, the truth of God, the wisdom of God, the mercy of God, the grace of God, the way of God and the power of God.
The mercy of God is the death of Jesus on the cross. The Holy Spirit will always magnify, speak about and exalt the death of Jesus on the cross as the only sacrifice and way into the mercy of God.
The Holy Spirit will magnify God as the only way to life and will never present alternatives that contradict the word of God. The Holy Spirit will magnify the Power of God and not encourage man to depend on himself, others or demon idols. The arm of flesh fails man.
This is what the LORD says: “Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who draws strength from mere flesh and whose heart turns away from the LORD. Jeremiah 17:5
This Scripture is not referring to man as only relying on others, when you rely on yourself and refuse to depend on God’s power and mercy, you defeat yourself. The word of God said so, not me. The truth is that if man could save, there won’t be people with terminal illnesses.
Someone might says, “hey Laura, I depended on myself and my efforts to pass many though exams and obtain a great job and build a large business empire.” Ok, I get that but what of when you develop a terminal illness and the doctor fails? Is that not evidence that man does not have power? Power belongs to God alone and it is only the Holy Spirit that glorifies the power of God and teaches us to depend on God’s power instead of the flesh or demon idols.
Any other teaching you hear out there telling you how great and powerful man is, is a lying and deceptive spirit. The false teachers are mostly wealthy because the devil has given them wealth to deceive.
Do not be deceived and think that because the teacher of a false doctrine is rich so you will be rich by believing in his misleading teachings. It is all the more you look, the less you see. It is a big scam. It is all about scammers catching and scamming the impure.
He catches the wise in their craftiness, and the schemes of the wily are swept away. Job 5:13
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness”; 1 Corinthians 3:19
I know someone who believes in The Secret and the Law of Attraction. I warned him by telling him that it does not work. The teachers are wealthy but the followers are misled. So many people I know who believe it kept believing it and some died poor and sick and never benefited from the law of attraction.
I said to him, “ It works for those who have powers or demons in their aura. When they confess, it comes to pass because the powers bring the confessions to reality – simple. It is power that matters in life, the mind is limited in it’s ability. It is only power that can enable a man to confess and it will come to pass not wishful thinking in the mind.
Another acquaintance of mine confessed to me that when she started reading ’The Secret’ all the time she always wished things and those things came to pass. She said to me, “it’s magic and I was so scared.” I said to her, ’you must have some powerful family idols,’ and she told me that I must be right because all her life she always wished things and saw results except that ability became very pronounced when she started reading The Secret.
She said she was so sacred that she threw the book away. It worked for her because she already had demons in her aura. The secret just taught her how to tap deeper into the demons. Others practised ’The Secret’ and it did not work because they were clean and had no demon idols in their aura. It is also possible that some end up possessed by reading the book and some don’t. That is why it works for some people and fails others. However, the percentage of people it works for is very small.
We must be very careful. Power belongs to God alone. Christians who practice magic have deserted Jesus for harlotry. Any Spirit and teaching that does not glorify the power of God and the blood of Jesus is not the Holy Spirit. It is only the Holy Spirit that glorifies and speaks of Jesus, the power and wisdom of God.
So let us be mindful of all sorts of false doctrines out there and only listen to the one that glorifies Jesus.
But to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 1 Corinthians 1:24
He will give me glory, because he will take what I say and tell it to you. John 16:14
The Helper will come—the Spirit, who reveals the truth about God and who comes from the Father. I will send him to you from the Father, and he will speak about me. John 15:26
