This means that the power of God is domiciled in the person in the Holy Spirit. (Luke 4:14).therefore, every encounter with the Holy Spirit is an encounter with the power of God.

And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesized (Acts 19:6, 8:17). This is the act of receiving the indwelling of the Holy Spirit as a believer (Acts 19:2)

The GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT (I cor 12: 4-10)

The gifts of the spirit can be divided into three major areas and these are:

  • Revelational Gifts: words of wisdom, word of knowledge, and discerning of spirits

  • Inspirational gifts: prophesy, tongues and interpretation of tongues

  • Power Gifts: faith, healing and working of miracles

The purpose of this gift is to empower us to live a profitable life ( I Cor. 12:17)

However, the bible admonishes us to covet earnestly whatever gift(s) we consider most needed by each of us ( I cor 12:31) and this we do by intense supplication and intercession ( duet 32: 24-28)

The three dimensional- empowerment(Isaiah 11:1-2)

 The three areas of needed empowerment include: The spirit, soul and body. I thess 5:23

The seven spirit of the lord as enumerated in Isaiah 11:1-2 include:

 The spirit of the Lord, which is also called the anointing (Luke 4:14&18) or the spirit of people ( ii Tim 1:6-7), the spirit of wisdom, knowledge, counsel,understanding,might and the spirit of the fear of the Lord which is also called the spirit of holiness ( Romans 1:4)

 While the spirit of a man is empowered by both the anointing of the Holy Spirit which empowers him to command signs and wonders and the spirit of holiness which keeps the spirit man alive, “because the soul that sinneth it shall die”

 The soul of man is empowered by four of the seven spirits: the spirit of wisdom, knowledge, counsel and understanding.

The body is empowered by the spirit of might ( Jn 4:6, 31-33,judge 13:24-25,14:6)

 We must seek to experience this true divine empowerment in order to fulfill our mission on earthy in a grand style. True empowerment is the key to all accomplishment.
