When the Holy Spirit Reveals
Sample Chapter Excerpts ¬© 1997-2005 Gregg N. Huestis
Chapter 1: What‚Äôs In A Word?
‚ÄúAccording to Proverbs chapter eighteen in the Amplified Bible, ‚Äėwe will be filled by the fruit of our mouths; and by the consequence of our words we must be satisfied.‚Äô This says that if I do not want to be filled and satisfied with evil consequences, then I must pay attention to the words that I speak. Also, this tells me that I am the one who has control over my words, and hence control over the kind of fruit that my words will produce.
We are responsible for the words we speak not God or the devil. God our Father has given us His Word to help us control our thinking and henceforth our speaking. We are not expected to be the ones to do it all alone. He has given these tools to us in His Word, but we must use the tools. God will not force us to change our vocabulary. He has simply given us His Word and left the choice to us.
The Holy Spirit is a gentleman‚ÄĒHe will not come into our lives without our invitation and cooperation...Therefore, I must make wise scriptural confessions. Speak things that agree with God‚Äôs Word/will. God won‚Äôt support confessions that are knowingly against His Word/will. However, the enemy will oblige us by fulfilling our willful desires, so we must be careful to only believe for those things that are in line with His Word‚Ä¶Therefore, we must confess the Word of God and words that are in line with God‚Äôs Word/will in order to receive the definite, godly things that He has told us to believe Him for.
Words have a creative ability about them, but if we are running around attempting to create those things, which God has not already promised in Scripture or privately spoken into our hearts; then we‚Äôre practicing a form of witchcraft. We must be extremely careful about the kinds of confessions that we make. Confess God‚Äôs Word‚ÄĒIt‚Äôs the truth about you.‚ÄĚ
Chapter 5: Waiting In His Presence
‚ÄúWaiting before the Lord will capture God‚Äôs attention, because He will incline to us, and hear our prayer. When God sees His children waiting on Him, He gives them His attention. Why? The Lord wants to ‚Äėknow‚Äô what they want. One‚Äôs willingness to wait on God stirs Him up with desire to meet the need of that diligent person.
Waiting before the Lord captures God‚Äôs attention, because He is moved to lift us out of the horrible miry clay. This symbolizes God lifting us out of the mire of Sin that we sometimes get ourselves into. Once we are willing to BE STILL and wait, God is moved with compassion, thus He delivers us from oppression and destruction in our lives.
He not only rescues us from oppression and destruction, but He also gives us firm footing. He sets us upon a rock (Jesus). Jesus Christ, through the Holy Spirit‚Äôs help is our solid rock foundation...This new song that we receive will encourage others to give their lives over to the Lord. In verse (3) it says ‚ÄėMany shall see and fear and put their trust and confident reliance in the Lord.‚Äô
Waiting will cause us to be a witness to the world of Jesus‚Äô saving, freeing power. People will see the change in us and want to have Jesus too. This is the reason why we have not won the world by now. They look at our failures and us and think they are better off than God‚Äôs children. Daily waiting in His presence will change us and hence change the world in which we live; because, they will see the light of God‚Äôs Presence in our lives.‚ÄĚ
