THE HOLY SPIRIT details logo Open Heavens - Thursday, December 19, 2013
by Pastor E.A Adeboye

It is one thing to receive the anointing and another to keep growing on it. There are people who had the anointing, but today, everything has virtually ebbed out. It is possible to connect with the Holy Spirit and to continue to flow in the power of the anointing even at increasing levels. If this is your desire, then you cannot toy with sin.
“Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.“
Hebrews 1:9
The anointing and righteousness have a symbolic relationship. If you are living in sin, the Holy Spirit will keep a distance from you and so will the anointing. If you are holy, the anointing can easily flow through you. If you want higher levels of the anointing or you want to sustain it, then you must increase your level of holiness and be far separated from sin.

You can say you know of some people who are not living holy, yet they still have the power. I have seen a lot of people who operated under a demonic power, usually their end is disastrous. There are two kinds of power-God’s power and the power of the devil which he stole from man. Goliath is an example of someone with demonic power. If you study carefully, you will find out that like Goliath, the devil uses his agent for a while and abandons them to destruction down the line. Satan has no value for the life of his devotees! He is also not committed to them beyond a certain point. But our God is committed to the end. He will defend His anointed. Whenever His anointed faces the agents of darkness, God is even more present in such situations. Hook up with the Holy Spirit because, of all the personalities in the Godhead, He is the most jealous of His holiness. The word ‘holy’ is not used before the name of the Father or the Son, but the Holy Spirit cannot do without it. This is why He is present with those who value His holiness. Little wonder he is rightly called Holy Spirit.

And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
John 16:8

Hebrew 1:8-9

Bible in one year:
Psalm 91-93

Key point:
Without holiness, there is no relationship with the Holy Spirit. He is uncompromisingly holy.

No doubt, life in a sense is like the sea. A characteristic of the sea is that storms of varying degrees arise, putting the lives of those sailing on it in jeopardy of being drowned. In Jesus’ Name, the storms of life will not be able to drown you, your family and your business. While literal storms are natural...More
