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.
