All saving, being done in the earth today is by the operation of the Holy Ghost. The devil has very little he can do about it. The Holy Ghost is God in the earth today and when you worship Him all things shall be added unto you. Prosper A.J.Hemstrought
How To Pray Right
“If you’re in this dispensation, then you aren’t in another.”
My mission here is to get you to know the Holy Ghost and walk with Him as God in the earth today, so of course I’m going to be talking about the Holy Ghost. Why would that be? Because it’s His dispensation and He is God in the earth today.
Question: “Who do I pray to? I’ve been brought up, my whole life, everything revolving around the Father and Jesus, and then here you come along and you’re talking about the Holy Ghost being God in the earth today — how do I do this?”
Many of the things that I say, a lot of people have never heard before. If they’ve never heard it before, how are they going to have effectual prayers in light of that – Holy Ghost as God today – if all they’ve ever heard about is the Father and Jesus.
Acts chapter 19:2. Remember, Paul shows up and he says, “Have you received the Holy Ghost since you believed?” What was their answer? “We haven’t even heard there was a Holy Ghost!”
You’ve got reams and reams of people out there who haven’t even heard about the Holy Ghost, so when I come up and talk about the Holy Ghost being God In the earth today, they say, “Well… well if He’s God, how am I supposed to pray? How am I supposed to do this.”
I’ll clear this up right away: it’s not my doctrine or the things that I’m saying that are confusing you. You were confused, and the things that I’m saying are having a hard time fitting in with your old doctrine that might not be right; and because we’ve been brought up in that doctrine for so long it seems uncomfortable when a new truth comes along and I can’t quite fit it in with your old beliefs. But we’re in a new dispensation – say, “New dispensation,” which requires new believing, new thinking, and new understanding of how to walk with God in the earth today; and this truth that I’m bringing forward is having a hard time fitting in with some of the things that were probably not quite right.
I know this is new and different, and change isn’t always easy, is it? Most people don’t like change. But we have to change. God’s not going to change, so we have to change to walk with Him. (Mal.3:6, 2 Cor. 3:18)
I also find it curious when people will argue for their old way even though it’s been ineffectual.
“I’ve been praying this way for years and years and years.”
“Well, have you had any results?”
“No, but I’m gonna keep at it.”
What I’m going to be talking about today will be effectual — meaning you’ll have effectual prayers because it’ll be in line with the truth, and in line with the Holy Ghost Who is God in the earth today. Our day.
Let’s get this straight: I’m not saying that you can’t pray to the Father, or that you can’t pray to Jesus — but it’s about being more right, more right in our dispensation.
A lot of things are religiously carried over from former dispensations, and they don’t work as well today. I’m not saying you can’t pray to the Father or you can’t pray to Jesus, but it won’t be as effectual as what I’m going to be talking about. It won’t be as right. (James 5:16)
Have you ever heard the word righteousness? Righteousness means being right or right standing with God. Wouldn’t you like to be more right?
James 4:3 says— “You ask and receive not, because you asked amiss.” Meaning you missed it. You asked, but didn’t receive, because I missed it. I asked amiss. We’re going to show you how to not miss it. We’re going to try to get you away from bombarding the gates of Heaven. Have you ever heard that?
“I’m bombarding the gates of Heaven!”
“How’s that working out for you?”
“Ah, not so well.”
Have we done that over the years? Oh, I’ve bombarded the gates of Heaven for years.
“What are you doing?”
“I’m bombarding the gates!”
Why are you doing that? No answer…
The reality is we shouldn’t even be petitioning Heaven.
Now, hang on here, I’ve got a lot to say! You don’t even need to petition Heaven. You see, things are different in our day — the Holy Ghost is God in the earth today.
People in older dispensations had to pray to and petition God – because He wasn’t with them. Who is God in the earth today? The Holy Ghost. Where is He? He’s with you. Are you in Heaven? No. Do you have to petition Heaven to get Him to do things for you? No, we’re in a different dispensation that they couldn’t even understand or access in older dispensations.
This will radically change your view, and your position, and how you pray, if you receive the fact that the Holy Ghost is God in the earth today and He’s with you. (1 Cor 3:16, 6:19)
He’s the One that Jesus sent, He’s the One that the Father sent to be with you — so it’s not upsetting the Father, it’s not upsetting Jesus when we walk with the Holy Ghost — that’s the plan. (John 14:16)
It radically changes your position and view of yourself, that I walk with God. It’s different… it’s just me and God. Jesus is still in Heaven, He’s going to return, but Jesus isn’t with me — the Holy Ghost is with me.
So, the Father is in Heaven, Jesus is at His right hand, and Jesus shall return. If you are in this dispensation… (Acts 2:33)
Keep in mind what we just talked about: did the Father and Jesus send the Holy Ghost? Yes. Is He still in the earth? He is. Where is He? He’s with you.
If you are in this dispensation, the Holy Ghost dispensation…
(This is going to be important. Are you in this dispensation? Yes.)
If you’re in this dispensation, then you aren’t in another dispensation.
Are you here? No, are you actually here in this dispensation? Yes. Then you need to be fully aware of your situation. Most people aren’t. Most people have no idea what I’m talking about. But, you can be fully aware of your situation, and your situation is that you’re in the earth and you walk with (and in) a personal relationship with the Holy Ghost, the one Jesus sent to be with you in the earth.
That’s the scene, man. That’s who you are, that’s how you walk, that’s how you do things. There isn’t all this other baggage that everybody else is trying to include. Distill it right down to its simplest form, that’s who you are and that’s how you walk. It’s just me and the Holy Ghost. Just you and the Holy Ghost. When you wake up in the morning, who is it? You and Holy Ghost.
Is that different than any of the other dispensations? It’s extremely different than any of the other dispensations!
Remember, you just said if you’re in this dispensation then you’re not in another dispensation, an older one — you’re in this one.
If you want to be effective, are you going to be effective in this dispensation or by trying to live in some different dispensation? No, in this one you’ll be the most effective. That is if you’re fully engaged in this dispensation, you and the Holy Ghost.
If I want to have effectual prayers, where are they going to be most effective? In another dispensation? No, in this dispensation.
2 Corinthians 13:14 — “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost be with you.” The communion (the Greek word is ‘Koinonia,’ it means fellowship, it means close and intimate fellowship, it means the kind of fellowship that’s a daily fellowship.
Example: Let’s say you went camping with somebody in a really small tent. Would that be close? Yes. That’s the kind of fellowship we’re talking about. Close and personal.
Who did that verse say that you were going to be up close and personal with? The communion of the Holy Ghost. That’s our dispensation! So we’re in close personal intimate communion with the Holy Ghost – not with the Father, not with Jesus (they’re both in heaven.) Who does it say we’re supposed to be in communion with? The Holy Ghost.
Would that mean – knowing that He is God – we would talk to Him? Would we maybe ask Him some questions? I would think that if you don’t ask Him questions and talk with Him there’s something wrong with you, because He’s God; He has all wisdom, He has all knowledge, He has all power, He has all ability. (Isaiah 11:2)
God the Father (in His infinite wisdom) and Jesus sent the Holy Ghost to be with you, in communion, in close personal fellowship. Would that involve talking? That would be the principle part of prayer wouldn’t it? Talking to. In fellowship you’d have to talk to the person. Right? So our daily, predominantly, communion (talking, praying to/with) every day, every day, mostly, predominantly, first and foremost would be with the One Jesus sent to be with you in the earth, that would be the Holy Ghost.
If you talk to God, could you call that prayer? Yes. What if I asked the Holy Ghost to do something for me, would that be prayer? Sure, just a different kind of prayer. Certainly different than most people are used to.
There are other scriptures (I’ll take you to them later) where He actually helps you to intercede for things. (Romans 8:26, 1 Cor 14:2)
Who are we talking to the most? The Holy Ghost! From the beginning of the morning till you go to bed at night, you’re communing with the Guy in the tent, so to speak. The One that you’re with all the time – Holy Ghost. So, 99.9% of your communication and your prayer should be with the One that the Father and Jesus sent to be with you in the earth.
We know the Holy Ghost is God and we’re supposed to be in communion with Him in our dispensation. They couldn’t know this that I’m talking about in the last dispensation. They didn’t have Him.
In fact, Jesus was very limited in His ability to say things to them “you can’t bear it now” — if I could tell you this, you wouldn’t be able to handle it. (John 16:12)
That’s not us though. We can handle this. There’s been a paradigm shift where now we can receive the Holy Ghost and walk with Him and talk with Him; and it doesn’t displease the Father, it pleases the Father, it pleases Jesus — that was the plan! (Acts 2:38-39)
I’m beginning to think that if you keep going back to an older dispensation, it irritates God. When you’re sitting there and you keep asking them, and asking them, to do something when they’ve already provided the answer for it, and you spend all your time bombarding the gates… I’d be the first one to send an angel out there and say, “Get off the porch. Stop bombarding the gates!”
Do you know you’re in the Holy Ghost dispensation? Seriously. It is the best dispensation to be in. This is a great time to be alive, because we can literally know God and walk with God in the earth.They couldn’t do it before.
Our communion is with the Holy Ghost (“…be with you,” right?) Remember 2 Corinthians 13:14. Can we ask Him things? Can we pray to Him? He’s the One we’re supposed to be in communion with! Talking to, not just talking at — communion – He’s also talking to us.
Now let’s look into why we would ask Him to do things. Clue: He is the One that does things…
1 Corinthians 12:11 — “But all these worketh that One and self same Spirit…” Who would that be? Holy Ghost. “Dividing to every man severally as He wills.” Go back up to verse 6: “There are diversities of operations, but is the same God which works all in all.” What God are we talking about? The Holy Ghost.
“All these worketh that one, self same spirit” (Holy Ghost) “dividing to every man severally as He will.” As Who wills? Holy Ghost. So…
All the things that are done in the earth, because it’s His dispensation, are done by this God called the Holy Ghost. And you’re in close, personal communion and fellowship with Him. Shouldn’t you therefore ask Him to do things? Of course you should.
We need to get over this hurdle; and I’m going to try to take you to some other scriptures to help you along this path, because we think (we were all brought up) that we’re supposed to “bombard the gates of heaven” to the Father in Jesus name, and somehow have them do something for us in the earth.
What they did do for you, already, was send the Holy Ghost to be with you – in the earth. Done. Did it already.
I’m not saying you can’t pray to the Father, I’m not saying you can’t pray to Jesus — but I’m saying it’s not as effectual as you walking daily with the Holy Ghost as God in the earth today.
I don’t say these things to try to irritate people. Really. But I do have to say them, and I’m saying them to clarify things. The reason it irritates people is because they’ve built up so many things on these wrong ideas, based in old dispensations.
Here we see that all these worketh that one and self same Spirit. And that it is the same God which works all in all. (1 Cor 12:11,6)
Let me ask you a question then: if that’s true, that all the things are being worked by that One God – the Holy Ghost who’s in the earth (it’s His dispensation). If He is the One working all of those things, how many things are being worked by the Father? None. How many by Jesus? None. They’re done, they’re finished.
I had this revelation earlier this week: when the Father sent Jesus into the earth, He sat down. (Beginning of Jesus dispensation) When Jesus finished what He did (the Bible says, “it is finished”) what did He do? He went and sat down. Where’d He sit down? At the right hand of the Father. Both of them are seated! Then what did they do? They sent the Holy Ghost. (John 19:30, Acts 1:4)
Who’s the only “One” working in the earth? According to this verse of scripture, unless I’m just making stuff up, that One same God (Holy
Ghost) works all in all. (1 Cor 12:6) Who’s the One doing all of the things, all of the work, all of the answering of prayer in the earth? The Holy Ghost. Who should you pray to? The Holy Ghost.
If so, if He’s doing all of these things, then there is zero action required by Jesus. I have a message on that, it’s called “Zero Jesus Action Required” where I go into detail about these things. The same with the Father. You don’t need any answers from the Father to your prayers! Who are you going to ask for your prayers to be answered in our day and age. The Holy Ghost.
Now don’t get mad at me; I’m just preaching from the Word.
Let’s assume we believe this, that the Father and Jesus are sat down (Jesus at the Father’s right hand) and They sent the Holy Ghost, Right? He’s in the earth – He’s God. Lets just assume I know this — then my prayers become more of saying things that are in agreement with Him than petitioning, because we know that He’s God the earth today, and we know that we walk with Him by speaking in agreement with His Word. (Amos 3:3)
My prayer isn’t so much, “Oh, God Holy Ghost do this for me.” My prayer should be, (quoting scriptural references like) “By Jesus stripes I was healed.” (1 Peter 2:24) and “My God shall supply all my need.” (Philippians 4:19) Our prayer becomes a declaration of things that are in agreement with Him. Things He has already said. It’s less about asking God to do something for me and it’s more about getting myself in agreement with what He’s already said and does for us.
I know this is new, and I know you haven’t been doing it, but this is how you walk with God in the earth today. The closer that you can do it, the closer you can walk with Him, the more manifestations of Him you will see. Him manifesting Himself in your life — either through healing, or deliverance, or prosperity, or whatever it happens to be that you’re believing and asking Him for — you can have it all. This is the way to have it. The way that actually works. Effectually.
If you want to just have some kind of religious something that you’ve been doing for years and doesn’t work, go ahead and do it — you’ve been doing it, I can’t stop you. But if you want to have some actual things work for you, then you’re going to have to get in line with the Holy Ghost and this dispensation, and how He does things. The Holy Ghost is God in the earth today and that’s how we do things.
I used to get somewhat upset (can you imagine that?) I used to get somewhat upset as I was coming into these revelations of Who the Holy Ghost is, that these people – that I looked up to and followed and respected for years – never told me these things. I was like, “What is going on? Why haven’t you told me this?”
I’ve since come to realize that some of them might not have known, because they too were brought up in that old religious thinking. But over all of these years, I never heard anyone just come out and say, “The Holy Ghost is God in the earth today, and you walk with Him by saying words.” So thoroughly scriptural, and these people (highly respected preachers) that should have known better yet have never said it. And I’m like, “Why?” I used to get upset, I don’t get upset anymore.
“You seem upset.”
No, I’m just excited!
It wasn’t their time. They might not know, they might not have known, or they might have known but just didn’t want to go there because everybody would leave. Many of these preachers had messages that they needed to deliver to the body of Christ; it wasn’t their time, and it wasn’t their message — but this is my message. This is my time!
If you are willing to receive that the Holy Ghost is God in the earth today, the One that Jesus and the Father sent into the earth to be with you, it literally changes everything! If it’s true, if the Holy Ghost is God and He was sent into the earth and is in the earth right now (the only part of the Godhead in the earth today) if that is true, then it changes everything, including your prayer life. If it doesn’t change your prayer life then you’re trying to hold on to something else, and old thing is going to drag you down.
This is exactly what the disciples of Jesus could not receive, they couldn’t bear it now (Jesus said that to them) and they couldn’t receive it.
John 7:37 — “In the last day, the great day of feast, Jesus stood and cried…” Who’s saying this? Jesus. “If any man thirst, let him come to me and drink. He that believes on me, as the Scriptures have said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake He of the Spirit, which they that believe on Him should receive…” In the future. Had they received the Spirit? No. Could they receive Him? No. “…for the Holy Ghost was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.” Not yet given.
He was speaking to people present with him in that day, but this message was not for them.
John 16:7 — “Nevertheless I tell you the truth, it is expedient for you that I go away, for if I go not away the Comforter will not come unto you, but if I depart I will send Him unto you.” When is that going happen? When Jesus is not there. He would have departed. Therefore the people He was talking to at this time, the people that He was saying these words to, the ones with him at the time, could not receive what He’s talking about.
This passage goes on to say: John 16:12 — “I have yet many things to say unto you, but you cannot bear them now. Howbeit when He the Spirit of Truth is come, He will guide you into all the truth.”
Could this possibly have been when Jesus was physically there talking to them? No. It was about a future time when He wasn’t going to be there. They would then be able to receive things that weren’t applicable for that time that Jesus was in. He was talking about a different dispensation, one that He wasn’t in.
All of Jesus’s disciples could not – at this time being present with Jesus – receive those things that He was talking about.
But if He says, “You can’t bear them now,” then the opposite is true for us — we can bear them now because we’re in a different dispensation. Does this make sense? He did speak of them, but those things he spoke of were not for those people that were there at the time, until He after he had left. Some of them would have been around when that time came, but they would have transitioned over to a new dispensation, at which point they could have “bore it” then, or received it. But, at the time Jesus was saying these things, he was in a different dispensation.
Everything that Jesus said, when He said it, was not in this dispensation. Every word that came out of Jesus’s mouth was pre- Holy Ghost dispensation. Every word that He said, everything that He did, was not in the dispensation you’re in right now. He was in a different dispensation — we could call that Jesus’s dispensation.
He was very limited in speaking about the Holy Ghost, which we just saw in those verses of Scripture we read. He had to somewhat say, “Well, you’ll be able to handle this later, when the Holy Ghost comes.” That’s a new dispensation; that would be the Holy Ghost dispensation. But Jesus – at the time He was saying it – was not in that Holy Ghost dispensation. Everybody He talked to: all of the disciples, all the people, His whole ministry, was not in this (our) dispensation.
I think we all understand that, but we need to get it straight in our heads because I’m going to read some things that He said, that have nothing to do with the dispensation we’re in, it had everything to do with the people He was ministering to at the time. Not our dispensation.
So, everything Jesus said was not in this dispensation.
He was being revealed as “the Son” of God, so in his day, He had to, of necessity, talk much about God being “the Father.” In Jesus’s dispensation we have a lot of Father-centric language because He couldn’t talk about the Holy Ghost, because the Holy Ghost was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified — and that was a different dispensation. That’s why, if we try to base all of our understanding of how we walk with God on what Jesus said in His dispensation — all the while assuming that we are in that same dispensation — we’re gonna miss it, because we’re not in that dispensation.
Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John was a different dispensation, and we have to look at those scriptures from that point of view to be correct.
Our dispensation began on the day of Pentecost when the Holy Ghost came into the earth — Holy Ghost dispensation. (Acts 1:8, 2:4)
If we’re in the Holy Ghost dispensation, we’re not in the former dispensation. Nothing Jesus did was in our dispensation. Everything He did was accomplished, fulfilled, and finished in His dispensation; in fact, He finished that dispensation! Everything He said was pre- Holy Ghost dispensation.
So many people see themselves in the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) because they consider themselves to be walking around with Jesus. They can see themselves in everything He said — they put themselves right in there. “I’m going to take all of these things in the Gospels and apply them to my walk with God” they say — because they consider themselves to be walking around with Jesus.
Who are you walking around with in our dispensation? The Holy Ghost. Where’s Jesus? Real Jesus is going to return; which means, if He’s going to return, He’s not here: you’re not walking around with Jesus!
If you’re trying to walk around – considering yourself in the Gospels, these things that Jesus spoke before our dispensation – then you’re gonna miss it. So many people see themselves in the Gospel because they consider themselves to be walking around with Jesus… wrong dispensation! They’re walking around in the wrong dispensation.
Remember of all those things I just said (and probably irritated a lot of people). Everything Jesus said was not in this dispensation that we’re in. Now let’s look at the Lord’s Prayer. (Matthew 6:6)
Jesus says, (verse 9) “After this manner therefore pray ye…” Now hold on here with me for a second — who is Jesus talking to? His disciples. Could He be talking to born-again people that were filled with the Holy Ghost? No, because that’s our dispensation, a different dispensation. He’s literally talking to His disciples. None of them were born again, none of them were filled with the Holy Ghost — different dispensation. They were actually Jewish people. (That’s a whole other message and would open a whole new can of worms that I shan’t get into now).
“After this manner therefore pray ye: ‘our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” He told His disciples, in THAT dispensation, to pray this prayer: “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” Was that prayer being prayed in our dispensation? That prayer was being prayed by people that weren’t even saved, born again, in that dispensation.
Hold your finger there, we’ll turn back in a moment — I have much more to say. Hold your finger right there in Matthew 6; go over to Romans chapter 14.
Remember, He couldn’t tell them about the Holy Ghost, or that much about the Holy Ghost, because He’d not been given yet. Romans 14:17 — “For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness…” Or being right. The kingdom of God is being right, and peace, and joy — in the Holy Ghost. Here we see in our day, the kingdom being in the Holy Ghost.
In Matthew 6 He was having his disciples pray, “Father, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” The Father, in our day, answers that prayer, and sends Who? The Holy Ghost. Look here: “For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.”
Being right with the Holy Ghost. Rightness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost, is the kingdom of God. All of the things from the Kingdom of God are coming to you via the Holy Ghost, He’s the only One in the earth today.
Go back to Matthew (in a former dispensation:) “After this manner pray ye: ‘our Father which art in heaven… Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, as in heaven so in earth.’ ” Was this in our dispensation? No. This was in His dispensation; In our dispensation we have the Holy Ghost. He has sent the Holy Ghost, things are different for us — that’s what I’m trying to get across here, things are different for us. Romans says, “The kingdom of God is in the Holy Ghost; righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.” The kingdom is in the Holy Ghost, but to them it was not yet given, they couldn’t bear it or receive it. Are you here?
We no longer pray for His kingdom to come, it came in the Person of the Holy Ghost. So if we’re still bombarding the gates of heaven with, “Our Father which art in heaven, send the Holy Ghost,” then we’re missing it. That is a prayer, (this is my point) that is a prayer from and for a former dispensation — it’s ineffectual for us. We no longer pray to and petition God, Who is far off somewhere, “Send your kingdom. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” That prayer is answered. The Holy Ghost came into the earth. Now we SAY, “Your will BE on earth as it is in heaven. We say it be. Different dispensation. They couldn’t bear it.
A lot of you can’t bear it now, because of your old religious training, but this is the way it is. We no longer pray for God’s will to be done, we say for God’s will to BE done. That’s how we do it in this dispensation, we go from pray to say.
Like I said earlier, they had to pray to God in that day, because God wasn’t with them. You don’t have to pray to God, because He is with you; you simply say what’s in agreement with Him which is His Word. So we go from praying to the Father to send His will, to saying the will of God on the earth because the Holy Ghost is on the earth. What’s He going to do while He’s on the earth? His will as it is in Heaven, if we say it.
I have many other messages where I’ve said, He will do for you whatever you say, He will do it for you, as long as it’s in agreement with His Word. These are all freely available on-line. But, this is how walk with God the Holy Ghost in the earth today.
You can pray to the Father, but what are you going to ask Him for? Think about it; use your noggin. You want Him to send you a savior? He already did that. What are you asking Him? You want Him to heal you? He’s not going to do it. He’s already made the provision for you to be healed. You want to know His will, you want Him to send you a teacher, you want Him to send you someone that it will help you in all the affairs of life — He already did it. Seriously. What are you going to ask Him?
“I’m going to go bombard the gates of heaven!” “Father do this. Father do that.”
What are you going to ask Him? The Holy Ghost is the fulfillment of all these. That’s why He said that the kingdom came in the Person of the Holy Ghost. If the Holy Ghost is the fulfillment of all those things, what are you going to ask Him?
I know this is different than what you’ve been taught, but have you ever thought that maybe you were taught wrongly? I mean, if we’re going to change, that means we’re going to have to change our thinking, change our belief system. And when you begin to embrace the Holy Ghost as being God and start walking with Him, and worshiping Him, there’s a lot of change that needs to happen.
Welcome to the new dispensation! It’s not the same as the old dispensation, and you’re not in the old dispensation — stop acting like it! Stop acting like you’re in the old dispensation.
What are you asking the Father for?
“I wanna pray to the Father, I wanna pray to the Father, I wanna pray to the Father.”
What are you asking Him for? I guarantee it is something He’s already provided for and then sat down. What are you asking Jesus for? It’s already something He’s provided for and then sat down. They’re not going to do anything about it!
You want to whine, “My prayers aren’t being heard.”
They’re already answered and you’re just ignoring the answer. What are you asking the Father for? I guarantee it’s something that He’s already sent; He already sent Jesus, He already sent the Holy Ghost.
“Oh God, I need help!”
One of the names of the Holy Ghost is the Helper. (John 14:16)
People want to pray to the Father. I don’t have a problem praying to the Father; I don’t really have time to go through it, but there’s a whole bunch of scriptures that talk about giving thanks to the Father. You can spend all the time you want giving thanks to the Father, “Thank You” for what He’s already done, but don’t ask Him for anything. He’s already sent everything that you could possibly ever need or want. (Eph 5:20, Col 1:12)
“I need help, I need help.”
Well the Bible calls the Holy Ghost the Paraclete (Greek), one called alongside to help. Who’s He here to help? You.
“I need teaching, I need ability.”
Him, Him, Him, also Him. Holy Ghost. And you start to realize, “Well, that was pretty smart of the Father and Jesus to send the Holy Ghost into the earth.” Yeah, because They didn’t want to hear all your stupid prayers.
Here we go…
You will get no help from the Father! You will get zero help from the Father, you’ll get zero help from Jesus!
(Isn’t this a great message? But you know what I’m talking about now).
Why? Because He has already sent the Helper. He’s already sent His Word and healed you. (Ps 107:20) Jesus sat down, “It is finished.” He’s not doing anything else. You’re not walking with Him, you’re walking with the Holy Ghost Who is God in the earth today.
The Father sat down after sending Jesus, then Jesus sat down after He accomplished what He needed to accomplish in His dispensation. That leaves us with… Who? The Holy Ghost.
The Father’s not doing anything, Jesus isn’t doing anything. The Bible does say a few things like They’re interceding, stuff like that, but it’s all stuff – heavenly. (Romans 8:34)
Then They sent the Holy Ghost; the Holy Ghost is the One doing everything in the earth. He’s the One that we commune with, that we talk to, ask favors of. It’s His dispensation, He does everything; and the more right I am with that, the more righteous I am, and the more I can expect things to happen for me and to me.
We’re going to stop praying, bombarding the gates of heaven, and we’re going to start saying/speaking in agreement with the Holy Ghost. That’s faith.
“Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” What am I doing here with these words? Am I saying, “God, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven, please do that.” Am I saying that? No. I’m saying and declaring “God’s will be!” That’s how we walk with the Holy Ghost in our dispensation.
If you want results, that is. If you don’t want results, go back to the old way without results.
But if you worship Him, the Holy Ghost, and speak His words; you will see results in your life, guaranteed. If you worship Him as God and speak in agreement with His word, you will see results, guaranteed.
There’s nothing He won’t do for you if you worship Him, and there’s nothing His Word won’t do for you if you’ll say it and speak in agreement with it.
This is the age of the Holy Ghost. This is how we walk with Him.
I walk with Him all day long. I worship Him, He is God. I speak in agreement with His word, that’s how you are right with Him.
I spend very little time praying or bombarding Him. Do you like to be bombarded by anyone? Just stop it. Do be like one of those little yippy dogs.
“Yap yap yap yap yap yap yap!”
Nobody wants to be bombarded.
No, we are in communion with Him and we walk in agreement with Him by speaking His word. This is the righteousness of God. (Romans 10:6)
This is a necessary message for most people. It is so much easier just to walk with the Holy Ghost as God, knowing that He’s the one Jesus sent and that Jesus is sat down at the right hand of the Father. They’re done, they’re finished with what they need to do — they sent the Holy Ghost. Now I just walk with Him – the Holy Ghost. It’s easy. It’s not difficult. We walk with the Holy Ghost and we speak in agreement with His word and we get better at it.
Romans 8:26 — “Likewise the…” Who? The Spirit, Holy Ghost, “…also helps” So He’s, what? He’s in the earth, He’s helping our weaknesses, our inabilities.
“God help my weaknesses, help my inabilities!”
One of the most common translations of that word ‘infirmity’ means ‘sickness.’
“God help my sicknesses!”
Is He going to do it? Is the Father going to do it; is Jesus going to do it? No, but the Holy Ghost… “Likewise the Spirit helps our infirmities, for we know not what we should pray for as we ought.” We can put the word “ ‘say’ for as we ought” in there because we’re talking about saying. “But the Spirit Himself intercedes for us” with sayings or groanings that we couldn’t utter on our own. He’s helping you say what needs to be said. Those of us who know, know we are talking about speaking in other tongues. (1 Cor 14:2)
Let me ask you a question here, because I can tell people are thinking this: is the Holy Ghost going to help you ask the Father from heaven to be healed? “Likewise the Spirit helps our infirmities… we don’t know what to pray for as we ought.” So, people think, He’s going to help me to pray to the Father in heaven to send some kind of miraculous healing down here? Does He need to do that? No, He – the Holy Ghost – is helping you to communicate with Himself, the Holy Ghost, who has the gifts of healings.
Have you ever heard of that – the gift of healing? If you had a healing and it was His gift of healing, how did you get healed? The Holy Ghost. You might even have asked Him, and probably did, while you’re praying in other tongues. It says “He’s helping your infirmities; you don’t know how to say for as you ought.”
Verse 27 — “He that searches the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because he makes intercession for the Saints according to His will (or the will of God.)”
Verse 28 — “And we know that all things work for good to them that love God.” Who is God? The Holy Ghost, He’s in the earth today. “And to them who are the called according to His purpose (or who call according to his purpose.)
In our day and our age, in our dispensation — Holy Ghost. Holy Ghost. Holy Ghost; Holy Ghost. Holy Ghost, Holy Ghost, Holy Ghost.
“Doesn’t that irritate the Father; doesn’t that make Jesus sad?”
No, it irritates Him and makes Him sad when you try to live in some other dispensation and try to badger Them into doing something They’ve already done by sending the Holy Ghost. Holy Ghost Holy Ghost Holy Ghost Holy Ghost Holy Ghost — pleases the Ones that sent Him.
You’ll never be able to fulfill what you’re called to do without fully embracing Him as God in the earth today and walking with Him.
Let’s read on, verse 31 — “What shall we then SAY to these things.” Knowing all we know about the Holy Ghost being God in the earth today and that we walk with Him by saying words; knowing that we’re in this dispensation and not some other — what shall we then SAY to these things?
“If God be for us, who can be against us.” Who is God? Holy Ghost. If He’s for you, who can be against you? What are you going to say to the things? Knowing what you know, what are you going to say to the things?
What if there’s a sickness or disease lurking about, what are you going to say to it? Well, you could just say that… “If God before me, who could be against me.” But you can also be more specific with other verses of Scripture. You can say, “Sickness go away, you can’t come near me!” and “By Jesus stripes I was healed.” (Ps 91:10, 1 Peter 2:24)
What are you going to say to an old body part? “Youth be renewed.” What are you going to say to it? (Ps 103:5)
This is where we’re at. I hope I’ve brought you up to this place. We now get to say things. Isn’t this good?
What are you going to say to a bank account that might seem like it doesn’t have enough in it? You’re going to call it full. You’re going to to say, “I have more than enough.” You’re going to say, “My God supplies all my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (Phil 4:19)
Here’s another thing, I’ll just bring this up: what if I keep asking God the Father for some money? He lives in heaven, His currency doesn’t work here. Who’s in the earth? The Holy Ghost. You know what the Father would do? He would send you the Holy Ghost if He could.
There’s a verse of scripture that says, “A good father knows how to give good things to his children, how much more shall the Father in Heaven give the Holy Ghost to those that ask Him. So I don’t care what you’ve asked Him, the answer is Holy Ghost. (Luke 11:13)
“What shall we then say to these things?” This is how we walk with God.
I really hope I’ve gotten this across to you, you will be so much better off when you learn to start saying things and stop praying things; because the Holy Ghost is already with you, you just need to get in line with Him and start saying some things.
