The Ministry of the Holy Spirit
After Jesus’ ascension to heaven, we have to depend on the ministry of the Holy Spirit to live life on this earth.
We have the Holy Spirit dwelling in us. He is our power, and His gifts help us live life successfully. Why should we depend on ourselves when God offered Himself to us, to empower us, help us, counsel us, lead us, live life to the fullest; without sickness and disease, having more than enough all the time?
The Holy Spirit is doing three things in the world. The Holy Spirit convicts the world of one sin, He convinces the world of righteousness, and He convinces the world of judgment.
The first time the Heavenly Father gave birth to your spirit was when you were in your mother’s womb. To be born again means the second time the Heavenly Father gives birth to your spirit. The day you accepted Jesus Christ, the Heavenly Father gave birth to your spirit again. Your spirit became a new creation; you were born again. The old spirit man passed away; disappeared. This happened while your body is still alive and functioning, with your soul still inside. The Holy Spirit recreated the spirit man in your body. This experience is the new birth or born again experience by the Holy Ghost.
