We don’t receive Jesus in our hearts because Jesus is still a physical person. The real Jesus is still in his physical body. Do you want to know the Spirit of God? Then, this is the Jesus that you must know – the One that was here, the One that left, and the One that shall return. Prosper. A.J.Hemstrought

I’m here to influence you and the way you think about the Holy Ghost. If that’s not something you want – someone like me influencing you about who God is, and whether He’s in the earth, and whether He’s a person – then this isn’t the channel for you. Because if you stick around long enough, you will be convinced!
If you do want to know the Holy Ghost as God. If you do want to know Him in the earth. If you do want to know him as a person, then stay tuned. Subscribe to this channel. Like it! Because we’re going down this road.
The Holy Ghost is God in the earth today and you walk with Him by saying words. He is a person. He is in the earth. He is the One that Jesus sent. And He’s the One we’re supposed to get to know and to walk with.
Here are some questions that you must ask yourself and, frankly, get settled.
#1: Is the Holy Ghost God? Now, most people would say, “Yes.” They would just give a casual, “Yes, well, the Holy Ghost is God.”
#2: Is He in the earth? And again, yes. We preach – I have volumes on this – proving that the Holy Ghost is the part of the Godhead Who’s in the earth today.
#3: Is He a person? Is He a divine being, is He a divine “person?” Yes.
You have to ask yourself these questions. It matters! If He’s God and He’s a divine Person then you should be worshiping Him.
I’m here to help. I’m here to influence you in your thinking of whether Holy Ghost is God, whether He’s in the earth, and whether He’s a Person. That’s part of my job, it’s what I do, to influence you and the way you think about the Holy Ghost; and yes we will end up worshiping Him – if you knew him as God you would worship Him.
If you hear what I’m saying and the Holy Spirit starts to minister to you; and then you take that next step because you know He’s God, you know He’s in the earth, you know He’s a person (you should worship God) – if you knew Him as God you would worship Him – if you begin to worship Him, He will begin to rearrange your thinking so that you begin to walk with Him as God in the earth today, and life will be completely different.
I’m telling you, when you meet the Holy Ghost and you know – you have the realization that comes over you – that He is God, you have nothing else to do but worship Him, and learn how to walk with Him.
He the Holy Ghost is as much God as the Father is and Jesus is.
Let me just talk to you about this for a second – have you ever heard of the Apostles Creed? The Apostles Creed is something that all churches today have in their doctrine; this is very fundamental, and regardless of their individual beliefs – whether they believe in baptism, or tongues, or anything else – they still believe in this, do you understand? This is what you have to believe or you’re considered a heretic.
So listen here, the Apostles Creed:
“We believe in One God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible; and we believe in One Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds, light of light, very God of very God, begotten – not made – being of one substance with the Father by whom were all things made…”
And it goes on here to talk about Jesus,
“Who, for us men and for our salvation, came down from heaven and was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the virgin Mary, and was made man. He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered, and was buried. In the third day He rose again, according to the scriptures, and ascended into heaven and sits on the right hand of the Father. From thence He shall come again.”
Now this right here – this is a doctrine that if you don’t
believe it you’re considered a heretic. You understand? So according to this, Jesus ascended into heaven, sitteth (sits, now, presently) at the right hand of the Father in heaven, and shall come again – which means He hasn’t yet. Where is He? Ah, He’s still in there!
“From thence He shall come again with glory to judge the quick and the dead whose kingdom shall have no end. And we believe in the Holy Ghost,” Here it is, “We believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord,” This is your doctrine, “We believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life,”
Can I say that? Can I call the Holy Ghost Lord?
“No, you’re a heretic!” No, I’m not a heretic.
“We believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life, Who
proceeds from the Father; Who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped.”
“We believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord… Who is
You can worship the Holy Ghost.
“The Holy Ghost, the Lord, is worshiped and
glorified, Who spake by the prophets.”
The Holy Ghost is a person. He’s a divine person, He is God as equal
to the Father and the Son, and He is to be worshipped; and frankly, you can call Him Lord.
The purpose of this Creed is to provide a doctrinal statement of correct belief and orthodoxy, and if you veer from it then you’re called a heretic. But here I am telling you that you should worship the Holy Ghost because He’s God in the earth today, and people would say that that’s heresy. They would consider me a heretic because I’m doing what the Word says to do, and what our Creed says to do. I’m worshiping the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life.
So, this is in everyone’s doctrine, and people that do
worship the Holy Ghost are often called heretics. I’m one who worships the Holy Ghost, and I’ve had people say that this is heresy. Is it heresy? Not at all.
Acts 24:14 – “But this I confess unto thee,
that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers.” The God of my fathers. Not only Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, but the God of my fathers from 381AD. You understand? The God of our fathers of the faith.
So if you are one of us, a Holy Ghost worshiper – and there are more, and more, and more of us every day; more people coming into this understanding that the Holy Ghost is God and that you should worship Him – if you are one of us, a Holy Ghost worshiper, then you’re with a group of people who are correcting the wrong that we’ve been living under for so long, of calling the Holy Ghost a power, or an influence, or a force, or a feeling. We’re correcting it! Listen: we’re correcting it, and we’re calling the Holy Ghost God, and we’re worshiping Him – which enables us to fulfill the full dispensational authority of the Holy Ghost; it enables Him to fulfill the full dispensational authority that He’s been limited in. We’ve limited the Holy One.
Jude 1:3 – “It was needful for me to write unto you and exhort you that you should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered to the saints.” Is this making sense? “Well, brother, you sound contentious over this.” I am earnestly contending and pleading with you that you
receive the Holy Ghost as God, and know Him as a person. Worshiping the Holy Ghost is Orthodox. I’m not a heretic when I worship the Holy Ghost; you should do it too.
So, we’ve found that He is God, and He is in the earth. Yes! He’s the One in the earth. Is He a person? The Holy Ghost is not a force, He’s not an anointing – He’s a person. He is God; He is a person; He is in the earth – you should worship Him, and it’s orthodox to do so. I know it sounds strange because you haven’t been taught that, but that’s the fact; and that’s where we’ve missed it.
Your worship of Him increases His personhood towards you. I probably haven’t stressed this enough, but that’s one of the reasons that worship is so important. Yes, God wants your worship, but worship does something to you. When I sit there and I say, “I worship You Holy Ghost,” it does something to me – it says to me that the Holy Ghost is God, that He’s a person – and as I’m worshiping Him it solidifies that fact. If you will worship Him, His personhood will be revealed to you. If you will worship Him, He will come and meet you, and you will meet Him; He will look upon you; He’ll visit you.
“Our mission is to get you to know the Holy Ghost as God in the earth today, and teach you how to walk with Him.” A.J.Hemstrought
The Holy Ghost is God in the earth today and you walk with Him by saying words – speaking in agreement with His words. It doesn’t matter who you are. It doesn’t matter if you are Catholic.

Every week we are bringing you something else that helps you to know the Holy Ghost, that He is God. You understand? He is God in the earth today. The Father is in heaven and Jesus is at His right hand and they both sent the Holy Ghost to be in the earth. And the Holy Ghost… He’s in the earth TODAY! So, our job is to get you to know Him as God in the earth today and to walk with Him.
You can be a “Society Member”, you can belong to “the Society” and listen to these messages if you are any one of those various denominations – listed above. It doesn’t matter what your background, church, or denomination is. The realization has to come to you that the Holy Ghost is the Living God and that He is in the earth and how I get to walk with Him – by saying words. Our job is to introduce you to the Person of the Holy Ghost and to teach you how to walk with Him.
We minister to people from all over the world and from all denominations and we introduce them to the Holy Ghost and how to walk with Him.
It’s a message who’s time has come.
Enoch and the Last Days Church
6 Part Series by A.J.Hemstrought
Enoch’s life was a prophesy of the Last Days Church. If we are to fulfill what God is calling us to in this last of days here on earth, we are going to look a lot like Enoch did. This archived series was a pivotal point in the formation of the Metropolitan Holy Ghost Society and much of our doctrine became influenced by the revelations contained herein. Enjoy.
Enoch 101 – Type of the Last Days Church
Enoch 102 – Initiated part one
Enoch 103 – Initiated part two
Enoch 104 – Testimony of Faith
Enoch 105 – The Holy Ghost Society
Enoch 106 – The New Leisure Class
What if you woke up in a world (much like a video game) and you had to learn how to survive and thrive! Like it or not, you are in such a “game world” where it’s you and the Holy Ghost in the earth and you get to obtain promises, overcome obstacles, accomplish tasks, and complete missions. Learning how to effectively play “the game” with the right rules, tools, and techniques will make all the difference in whether you win or loose. Learn the rules, acquire the tools, develop your faith, and WIN!

Our Faith: the Holy Ghost and Speaking Words by A. J. Hemstrought
What Faith are You?
Many times people ask me this question, “what faith are you?” What most people are looking for is an answer like “I’m a baptist, I’m a pentecostal, I’m Catholic, or I’m Evangelical, etc.” But, in order to answer their question effectively, we first must understand and describe 1Corinthians 2:4.
And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. 1Corinthians 2:4
Here Paul begins by talking about his speech and preaching. The word speech could be interpreted as speaking and the word preaching could be interpreted as doctrine. Both speaking and doctrine should be used when trying to communicate “what faith you are.”
He goes on to say, my speech and doctrine are in demonstration of the Spirit. And…there we have it! Paul’s first definition of his faith. “In demonstration of the Spirit.” The word demonstration could be interpreted “openly showing.” Paul’s faith was a demonstration or open showing of Whom? The Spirit. The Holy Ghost. Paul’s speech (speaking) and preaching (doctrine) was in demonstration (open showing) of the Holy Ghost.
What faith are you? Well, if it’s scriptural, it has to be something similar to Paul’s and should therefore be something that defines your walk with the Holy Ghost. Just like his did.
Paul preached about the Holy Ghost and His power. Why would he do that?
1 Corinthians 2:5 That YOUR FAITH should not stand in the wisdom of men, or the doctrines of men, or what men may think, but in the power of whom? God. God the Holy Ghost.
Scriptural faith doesn’t stand in the doctrines or traditions of men, but in the power of the Holy Ghost. So the answer to the question, what faith are you? Holy Ghost faith. I believe in the Holy Ghost. He is God in the earth today.
Your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the active power—I like to say it that way “active power” because it is God (Holy Ghost) doing things.
This power (Holy Ghost power) is not just having big muscles or because I’m somehow strong and powerful, but it means that I’m actually involved in the doing of powerful things. Active power. My faith, my belief, my religion is in God the Holy Ghost, or the active power of the Holy Ghost—the active power of Him doing things!
My faith is in the active power of God the Holy Ghost doing things. That’s what my faith is. This is my faith.
We have a faith like no other. When we say thing’s like, “we worship the Holy Ghost,” name anybody else doing that. When we say, “the Holy Ghost is God in the Earth today,” I’ve heard others say similar things about the Holy Ghost being God, but they don’t carry it far enough. He’s God in the earth today. He’s the only part of the Godhead in the earth. Our religion revolves around the Holy Ghost being God in the earth today and His active power to do things.
I’m going to repeat many of these principles and say them in a lot of different ways. What is your religion? Your religion is in the active power of God doing things. Doing things what? Where? For you, here and now.
1 Corinthians 2:5 that YOUR FAITH (your religion, your belief system) should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. God doing things. The active power of God the Holy Ghost doing things for you in the earth. Your faith is like no other.
How can you have faith in someone or something you haven’t clearly defined? Much of what we do here at the Society (MHGS.org) clearly defines who God is in the earth today and how to walk with Him.
Jesus sent the Holy Ghost. Few would argue against this. But, Jesus isn’t here any more. So if we are going to have active faith in an active God, who is your faith going to be in? It has to be in the Holy Ghost! Again, our faith, our religion, our belief system is in the active power of God the Holy Ghost doing things for us in the earth.
How can you have faith in someone not clearly defined? You can’t! Many faiths have not clearly defined this. They think the Holy Ghost is a power of God, some kind of a whispery wind, or an after thought of the gospel. He certainly is not the Head of their religion! The Holy Ghost is God and “our faith” has to be in the power of the Holy Ghost doing things in the earth. What’s your faith?—The power of the Holy Ghost.—The active power of God doing things.— Holy Ghost doing things. Our faith is in Holy Ghost doing things. Our faith is in Holy Ghost actively doing things where? In the earth. That’s where He is. Jesus sent Him into the earth. Our faith is in God the Holy Ghost actively doing things for us in the earth. When I say our faith is like no other. That’s what I’m talking about. It’s clearly defined.
Let’s look at some other scriptures. How about Hebrews chapter 11?
Is that a good chapter?—The faith chapter. We’re talking about our faith. Our religion, the way we believe, our belief system should be in the active power of God the Holy Ghost doing things. That’s a big mouthful. Good thing we don’t have to call it that! What’s your religion? “The Faith of the Active Power of God the Holy Ghost doing things for Me in the Earth dot com.”
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him.
Him who? God. God who? God the Holy Ghost.
Hebrews 11:6 but without faith it is impossible to please him (Holy Ghost): for he that comes to God (Holy
Ghost) must believe…
So we are talking about a belief system, a kind of belief system that without it (faith) is
impossible to please Him. Your faith, your belief system, your religion should please God, right? Yes. That’s what we are defining and doing.
He that comes to God (Holy Ghost) must believe that He (Holy Ghost) is. You have to believe that He came into the earth and that HE IS in the earth right now and that HE IS the only God in the earth today. He is! That’s our faith. Our faith is believing that God the Holy Ghost is. Is where? Is in the earth. He is here. Our faith believes the Holy Ghost IS. And…
There are a lot of “ands” in the bible. There are a lot of “buts” in the bible too, but today we are going to talk about the “ands.”
For he that comes to Holy Ghost must believe that He is AND that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
So, we are believing that God the Holy Ghost IS in the earth AND that He rewards us. That is our faith. That is our religion. That’s our mode of operation. That’s what we believe.
That’s our belief system. The Holy Ghost is God in the earth today and He rewards us because we diligently seek Him. That’s about as scriptural as you can get.
How do we diligently seek God? By speaking in agreement with His word and by worshiping Him. These two things I preach on a lot here at the Society. We speak in agreement with His words and worship Him. When we speak in agreement with His words and worship Him, He rewards us. Where do we do this? In the earth. That’s where you are. That’s where He is.
1 Timothy 4:8 godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that NOW is, AND of that which is to come.
Now AND. That’s another “And.”
So, we have to believe that God is. Is where? Is in the earth. AND that he rewards us when we diligently seek Him. How? By speaking the word and by worshiping Him.
Are you getting this? This is our religion.
It is so simple. Stop trying to make it so complex. Jesus left. He sent the Holy Ghost into the earth. He, the HolyGhost, is God. He is in the earth. We worship God and say I worship You Holy Ghost. Then… He (Holy Ghost in the Earth) rewards me as I diligently seek Him—by confessing in line with His written word and worshiping Him.
It’s not that difficult, is it?
This is your religion. This is our faith. This faith pleases God. It doesn’t irritate Him. It doesn’t grate on His nerves. It pleases Him. It doesn’t anger Him. He takes pleasure in it.
Psalms 35:27 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
The Holy Ghost takes pleasure in prospering you because you’re serving Him by speaking His words and by worshiping Him.
Let’s look at a few more scriptures. Go to the book of Job. I know we don’t go there often. I think a lot of people stay away from the book of Job because it could be pronounced job, and job sounds like work. They wouldn’t want anything to do with that, work?
Job 1:9 Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? Vs 10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and his house, and about all that he hath on every side? Thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.
The devil was trying to make an accusation to God against Job. The accusation was that Job was only serving God because God rewarded Job with good things for serving Him. The accusation failed simply because the devil didn’t know that this is how God does things—God rewards those who diligently seek Him.
Does Job fear God for nothing? No. God made Job the greatest man in the east, because he did serve Him. God even called him, “my man Job.”
When we seek God. When we worship Him and He takes great pleasure in prospering us. He rewards us.
Part of our faith, our belief system, is believing that God in the earth today is a rewarder. He is actively doing things to reward us: prosper us, heal us, and generally make things work out to our benefit.
Doth Job fear God for nought? No! Is Job worshiping and serving God for nothing? No! Neither are you.
Job 36:11 If they obey and serve Him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.
We are serving the Holy Ghost and He is a rewarder. This pleases Him. In fact, it’s impossible to please God without serving Him for the reward that He gives to you. It’s all part of the same package.This is our faith.
We worship and serve God the Holy Ghost and we serve Him for the rewards He gives us. Where? In the earth. When? Now, in this life and in the world which is to come.
People would say, “ah, you’re just being selfish.” Ah, I’m selfishly applying scriptures and… pleasing God! Your selfishness pleases God. Can you say that? Sounds a little weird to your ear, but keep going.
1 Timothy 6:17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy.
Charge them that are rich in this world—always a good business model by the way. That they be not highminded, nor trust… What is another word for trust? Faith.
You are supposed to trust—have faith—in the Living God. Who is the Living God? The Holy Ghost. Our faith is supposed to be in the Living Holy Ghost. Who gives us RICHLY all things to enjoy. That’s pretty good.
1Timothy 6:18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate, vs19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come,
Laying up in store… What? FOR THEMSELVES!
How selfish of them, doing what the bible says.
We are supposed to trust in the Living God. The Holy Ghost is the Living God. Our
religion, our faith, our belief system is in the Living God. We trust in Him. Our faith is in Him. That He is what? Giving us richly all things to enjoy. Richly all things. It doesn’t get much better than that.
Now, if you are going to believe “for richly all things”, it’s going to take greater faith in the Living God than not believing richly for anything. One faith is going to please God and one isn’t. Are you getting any of this? I hope so.
My faith is in the Living God—God the Holy Ghost in the earth—richly providing for me, actively doing things on my behalf. This is our faith. What is? The Holy Ghost actively doing things for me. Richly providing things for me in the earth. I’m serving Him. I worship Him. I speak His words and therefore guess what? He richly provides things for me. All things. Now and in the world which is to come. This pleases Him.
“And that He’s a rewarder.” This should be building your faith.
Say this out loud, “The Holy Ghost actively does things for me in the earth today!” That’s your faith. That’s living faith in the Living God. Not a dead faith, or faith that only believes for things when we die and go to heaven.
This is our faith. It’s not a bag of religious garbage. My speech and preaching was not with “a bag of religious garbage” but in the Holy Ghost and His active power to do things for me in the earth. New hipster translation (NHT).
2Chronicles16:9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. kjv
For the eyes of the Lord…Who? The Holy Ghost. Run to and from throughout the whole earth. Where? Earth. Again this is part of our faith. This is what we believe. We serve Him. This pleases Him.
The Holy Ghost has eyes that run and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong, actively doing things, active power, on behalf those whose hearts are perfect towards Him. That’s you when you worship Him and speak His words.
This is your faith. This is in your bible. This is what you believe. I believe in the Holy Ghost actively in the earth doing things for me. The more you believe that, the more you confess that,
the more you act on that, the more you get in line with that, the more you are going to be pleasing to God and the more He’s going to be able to do things for you.
The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth. Where is the Holy Ghost? He’s in the earth. What do we believe? That the Holy Ghost is in the earth. What else do we believe? That He’s in the earth actively doing for me because I worship Him and speak His words.
This is a good message. I’m starting to get happy about it.
I have a faith that’s different than a lot of other people’s because I’m actively worshiping the Holy Ghost and speaking His words KNOWING that He’s the one in the earth doing things for me because I’m walking in agreement with Him by speaking. Are you seeing this?
What’s your faith? That’s your faith.
Speaking in agreement with His words. There’s another word for that. Righteousness. Right standing with God is right standing with Whom? Holy Ghost.
The just shall live by faith. The righteous shall live by faith. If we are walking with God we
must therefore be in right standing with God.
Amos 3:3 How can two walk together except they be agreed.
The word “agreed” here means “saying the same thing.” So our walking with God, our
righteousness of God, or our right standing with God is when we say the same thing as God— also known as the righteousness of faith.
I’m not going to be in the righteousness of faith unless I’m speaking something.
Romans 10:6 says the righteousness of faith SPEAKS.
Romans 10:8 says but what sayeth it? The Word!
So I’m walking with the Holy Ghost who is God in the earth. I am the righteousness which
is of faith when I’m speaking. And what sayeth it? The Word. Why? Because it’s His word and when we say His word we are walking in agreement with Him. What’s the result of that? His ability to do things for you is exponentially increased and it makes Him happy, pleasing Him.
The Holy Ghost is God in the earth today and you walk with Him by speaking in agreement with His words. This is your faith.
Our Faith (system of belief) should stand in the Holy Ghost.
