Holy Spirit Reveals What Is To Come

  • John 14:26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
  • John 16:13-15 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.
  • 2 Kings 6:8-12 Now the king of Aram was at war with Israel. After conferring with his officers, he said, “I will set up my camp in such and such a place.” The man of God sent word to the king of Israel: “Beware of passing that place, because the Arameans are going down there.” So the king of Israel checked on the place indicated by the man of God. Time and again Elisha warned the king, so that he was on his guard in such places. This enraged the king of Aram. He summoned his officers and demanded of them, “Tell me! Which of us is on the side of the king of Israel?” “None of us, my lord the king,” said one of his officers, “but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom.”
  • Acts 27:21-26 After they had gone a long time without food, Paul stood up before them and said: “Men, you should have taken my advice not to sail from Crete; then you would have spared yourselves this damage and loss. But now I urge you to keep up your courage, because not one of you will be lost; only the ship will be destroyed. Last night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve stood beside me and said, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul. You must stand trial before Caesar; and God has graciously given you the lives of all who sail with you.’ So keep up your courage, men, for I have faith in God that it will happen just as he told me. Nevertheless, we must run aground on some island.

The Holy Spirit is called the Spirit of truth as He not only guides us into all truth but He also reveals what is to come. He can reveal the enemy’s battle plan to you, give you insight when a trap is set before you, and even give you information about a situation. The Holy Spirit should be your Advisor, your Strategist, and the mole in the enemy’s camp. Jesus always had information supernaturally – information about where to get a colt, when to celebrate the Passover, how to deal with the adulterous situation, what to say about paying taxes, etc. Ananias knew that he could go pray for Paul even though he was known for putting believers in jail (Acts 9:10-18). You too can have information supernaturally as you call on the Holy Spirit as your Helper and Counselor.

How to partner with the Holy Spirit so He can reveal what is to come:
  1. Be baptized with the Holy Spirit as Jesus instructed (Acts 1:5, 8).
  2. Submit to God.   This will put you in a position to be directed by His Spirit.
  3. Fellowship with Holy Spirit throughout the day to develop a deep relationship with Him. Allow Him to lead you.
  4. When you need revelation, ask Him specific questions and wait for the answers. Not hearing is not an option, as John 10:4 and 27 state that God’s children hear His voice. Practice listening to His still small voice inside you.
  5. Put in action the directions the Holy Spirit gives you. Jesus did and the disciples did also. The Holy Spirit always brings us to victory.

Call to action:
Engage the Holy Spirit today to deepen your relationship with Him. Talk to Him as your Helper, Counselor and Teacher and ask Him for guidance. Remember to listen for His still small voice inside you or His leading. It may take a while at first and you may be tempted to walk away but don’t. You’ll be wonderfully rewarded.
