THE HOLY GHOST IS OUR GOD ORDAINED MASTER HELPER AND THAT IS WHY HIS NAME IS CALLED THE COMFORTER
IF YOU ARE FILLED WITH THE HOLY GHOST YOU HAVE THAT EXTRA BOOSTING IN THE REALM OF JOY.
THE GREATEST LOSS OF LACK OF JOY IS LACK OF ACCESS INTO DIVINE PRESENCE. GOD CANNOT SURVIVE A JOYLESS ENVIRONMENT
EVERY CHILD OF GOD IS REDEEMED A BUNDLE OF JOY. WHEN WE GOT SAVED, JOY WAS PART OF THE THINGS IMPLANTED IN US
IF YOU ARE TRULY IN FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD YOU GO BACK WITH JOY – THE JOY OF FELLOWSHIP – BECAUSE YOU HAVE APPEARED IN HIS PRESENCE
EVERY ENCOUNTER WITH THE TRUTH STIRS JOY – THE JOY OF REVELATION AND EVERY ONE THAT IS SURE OF ETERNITY STAYS SUPERNATURALLY JOYFUL – THE JOY OF ETERNITY.
THE CASE OF A BELIEVER CAN NEVER BECOME HOPELESS BECAUSE HE IS JOINED TO THE LIVING GOD
– Bishop David Oyedepo on ENGAGING THE HELP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT 6 at Midweek Communion Service LFC Canaanland 25th October 2023 || Part A
Everybody needs help. The Holy Ghost is our God ordained master helper. His name is called the Comforter which literally means the Helper. Not to think we need help is pride; we are created to need help. May the help ordained for us in the Master Helper not be short circuited. May this help flow through to reach each one of us! 2 Corinthians 1:24.
Everybody needs help. In these great challenging days we need help. We need our joy to remain intact and in place and growing. Our teaching series which is concluding today is, “Engaging the Help of The Holy Spirit.” We all need this helper. We touching on a thing today in our teaching series that is most crucial even for the time that we are living in, that is, the Spirit of Joy.
Many laugh on the outside, they’re crying on the inside – superficial joy. They get to bed and begin to mourn, “what’s happening to me? Is my life going to remain like this?” …and when the heart is broken, life is broken. Proverbs 18:14.
– Today, help us coming!
– Your joy will be inside out! Your joy from henceforth shall be inside out! It will not be smiles on the outside and tears on the inside!
From this day by the ministry of this helper, your joy shall be inside out! It shall remain intact! No storms of life will challenge it! You remain on top!
– Ask God for an encounter with the Spirit of Joy.
Among the divers operations of the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Joy. It’s referred to in Isaiah 61:3 as the Oil of Joy; in Psalm 45:7 as the Oil of Gladness. Luke 10:21 – joy from inside out! It stirs joy from within that cannot be hidden from without. Proverbs 17:22. As a preamble, every child of God is redeemed a bundle of Joy. Can I have you say with me, “I’m redeemed a bundle of Joy.” There is what we call, the Joy of Salvation.
The Psalmist prayed prophetically, “Restore to me the joy of thy salvation…” Psalm 51:12 and we saw that in the listing of the Fruit of the Spirit. Galatians 5:22. They are manifestations of our regenerated spirit so when we are saved, joy was part of the things implanted in us. It’s “fruit” o not “fruits” – fruit of the Spirit – one. Mango fruit – it has seed, back, the flesh, it’s one fruit. So when you’re born again, you’re born with joy. New birth comes along with joy.
They call it the Joy of Salvation and then we have the Joy of Revelation. Jeremiah 15:16. Every encounter with the truth stirs joy. Then we have the Joy of Fellowship. Psalm 84:7; Nehemiah 8:10. So being in fellowship keeps you on the path of joy unspeakable. Psalm 16:11.
So among the takeaways from Fellowship is Joy. If you’re truly in fellowship, not that you came and attended, one of your takeaways is joy. Joy goes back home with you because you have appeared in his presence.
There is fullness of joy, it imparts on your life. Every child of God is redeemed a bundle of Joy. Romans 14:17 – intoxicating joy, the kind that broke loose on the day of Pentecost. “These people are not drunk like you think. It’s the third hour of the day. The bars are not open.” Acts 2:15. Drunken-like – joy that’s what the Holy Ghost gives.
Singing: the Holy Ghost power is moving just like a …
If you are filled with the Holy Ghost you have that extra boosting in the realm of joy. Then we have the joy of eternity. Every one that is sure of eternity stays supernaturally joyful. Hebrews 12:1-2. The joy of eternity kept him (Jesus) smiling on the Cross. “Today, you’ll be with me in Paradise.” You don’t give good news groaning. Christ smiled till he went down to the grave. He rose triumphant at the end of the day. What he saw before him kept him joyful in spite of what was happening.
That’s the kind you’re taking away from here because the greatest loss of lack of joy is lack of access into divine presence. Your God and my God cannot survive a joyless environment and if God be not for you and me, anything can be against us. Your joy is so vital to keep the devil at bay. That’s why so much is invested in redemption to keep you and I joyful.
Why was I just bouncing, jumping, all the time my wife was under siege of death? Singing. Nobody had room to ask me, “What’s going on? How far?”
Daughter was dying, I was on my way to the office. I had good time of fellowship with the brethren and sat down in my office with a smile, “Jesus, there must be a way out.” You can’t access light without joy and you can’t access light, darkness will dominate you.
– You’re going away with something tonight that will live with you for life if you care to walk in it!
This is why every true child of God is immune to depression as long as he keeps walking in the light. I’m yet to sit down once by grace, “Why am I doing what I’m doing?” I’ve not done everything right, yes, but following God has been with utmost joy, unperturbed joy, unrepentant joy, unreserved joy.
Receive that grace tonight! If you know what lack of joy is costing you, you will respond. Psalm 42:5. Depression is a proof of hopelessness but there is no case of a believer that is hopeless. Ecclesiastes 9:4. Your case can never become hopeless because you are joined to the living God. Today is sparking the dawning of a new day in your life!
