How to Demonstrate the Power of the Holy Ghost?

Have you ever felt the desire to flow in the power and the gifts of the Holy Spirit?

If you’ve ever been in a service where the power of God was operating freely, where people were encountering Him, being healed, delivered and set free – for many of you, you would have experienced a deep yearning to minister like that.

For those of you who have a desire to flow in the supernatural and to see the power of God flow through your very life, I want to encourage you to continue reading…

Two Ingredients to Unlock His Power

1. Revelation and Understanding

First – it’s important to realise that in order for you to demonstrate something, you first need to have experienced it yourself.

You cannot demonstrate to someone how to grow a business, or fix a car, unless you have first done it yourself.

The same applies with the Holy Spirit.

The
 supernatural power of the Holy Spirit 
must 
first be 
experienced and understood before you can demonstrate it.

The Holy Spirit is not only the Spirit of God, and part of the trinity, but He is also the Author of the Word of God. This is why those who aren’t filled with the Holy Spirit will struggle to understand the Bible – and certainly, will not be able to get revelation.

To be a mature and healthy believer, you need a balance of both the Word of God and the Spirit of God. You cannot have one without the other, because they complement each other.

Therefore, to be filled with the Holy Spirit, and in a place where you can demonstrate His power to those around you, you need revelation and understanding of the Word of God.

Revelation and understanding will separate you from quoting scripture mechanically to speaking with the authority of heaven, where souls get saved and demons tremble.

“Behold, I send you the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high”
Luke 24:49 (NKJV)

 

This word “endued” literally means to be clothed with power. This power also includes knowledge and divine abilities. It literally means to receive God-like ability and knowledge.

2. The Presence of God

This is where relationship with God is so crucial, and is one of the keys which separates Christianity from any other religion.

It’s one thing to know God’s Word and to be able to recite Bible verses – many can do this, yet nothing is changing in their lives. The determining factor in whether something will change when we speak is locked up in knowing God.

The presence of God is a necessity to effectively impart the Word of God and His power to another person. The Word must come out of His Holy Presence.

When
 we
 have
 an 
experience 
with 
God’s supernatural 
knowledge and ability, and are divine carriers of His presence and glory, 
we 
can now begin to describe, 
teach, 
and 
impart 
it 
with 
precision, confidence and demonstration.

This is when we begin to see transformation in the lives of those around us.

“The things concerning Jesus of Nazareth, who was a Prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people…”
Luke 24:19 (NKJV)

 

It
 is
 not enough
 to
 have
 the
 right
 words alone. Many can talk the talk. We
 need
 the
 actions,
 the
 concrete
 works, and the demonstration of power to correspond with
 what
 we
 preach.

Many assume that the power of God is simply being able to heal the sick or raise the dead, and all of these are indeed the power of God, but there is nothing more dangerous in the Kingdom of God than a person who is filled with the Word of God, revelation and understanding, carrying an atmosphere of His presence with them, and then moving in a realm of supernatural power.

Three Steps to Demonstrate His Power

I am going to briefly share with you the 3 steps to accessing the power of the Holy Ghost in your life, just as I have.

From the day I began to apply these keys, I experienced a drastic turnaround in my personal life, in my walk with God, and in my ministry.

“And
 I,
 brethren,
 when
 I
 came
 to
 you,
 did
 not
 come
 with
 excellence
 of speech
 or
 of
 wisdom
 declaring
 to
 you
 the
 testimony
 of
 God.
 2 For
 I determined
 not
 to
 know
 anything
 among
 you
 except
 Jesus
 Christ
 and Him
 crucified.
 3 I
 was
 with
 you
 in
 weakness,
 in
 fear,
 and
 in
 much trembling.
 
4 And 
my
 speech
 and
 my
 preaching 
were
 not
 with
 persuasive words
 of
 human
 wisdom,
 but
 in
 demonstration
 of
 the
 Spirit
 and
 of power,5 that
 your
 faith
 should
 not
 be
 in
 the
 wisdom
 of
 men
 but
 in
 the power
 of
 God.

1 
Corinthians
 2: 1–5 (NKJV)

 

  1. The Method to Demonstrate His Power?

First, it’s very important to realise that it’s the supernatural power of God that distinguish Christianity from any other religion.

When you can pray for someone and they feel His presence for the first time, or they get healed, or they receive a Word of Knowledge that you could possibly never have known – suddenly you have their attention.

A demonstration is never linked to theory alone, but to application of that theory.

“God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will.”
Hebrews 2:4 (NKJV)

 

Therefore, the method to manifest and demonstrate the power of God is that it should speak to the five senses of the person to who you are ministering.

For
 example,
 the
 blind
 can
 receive
 their
 sight,
 the
 deaf
 can receive
 their
 hearing,
 those
 oppressed
 by
 demons
 can
 be
 set
 free
 and experience
 release
 from
 bondage,
 and
 those
 confined
 to
 a
 wheelchair
 for years
 can 
be 
healed
 and 
walk 
again – 
all 
by 
the 
power 
and
 love 
of 
God.

They will be able to physically and tangibly experience the power!

2. The Condition to Demonstrate His Power?

As I mentioned at the start of this article, it’s important that we 
understand 
that
 before
 the
 power
 of 
God 
comes
 upon 
us, 
we need to receive revelation of 
His 
Word.

When 
God
 sends 
His 
Word 
and someone
 receives
 it
 through
 revelation,
 He
 backs
 it
 up
 with
 His
 power.

“So 
shall 
My
 word 
be 
that
 goes 
forth 
from 
My
 mouth;
 it
 shall 
not return
 to 
Me
 void, 
but 
it 
shall 
accomplish 
what 
I
 please…”

Isaiah
 55:11 (NKJV)

The
 condition
 for 
manifesting 
supernatural 
power 
is 
the revelation
 of 
knowledge. 
Without 
a
 demonstration, 
the revelation
 has 
no 
credibility.

Every
 spiritual
 reality
 should
 be
 demonstrated
 in
 the
 natural. Afterall, this is the differentiating factor between Christianity and any other dead religion.

If
 what
 we preach
 is
 as we say it to be, then we should be able to prove it – through demonstration!

 3. The Need and Importance of Demonstrating His Power?

I will give you six of the main reasons why Christ so desires for you to walk in His power.

A.  To show that Jesus is alive – here and now. – Acts 3:11-16, 2 Corinthians 4:10-11
B. To demonstrate that Jesus never changes; He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. – Hebrews 13:8
C. The power of God is proof that Jesus will return – Acts 1:11
D. To confirm that the Word of God is true. – 2 Samuel 7:28, John 17:17
E. The power proves God’s integrity. – Numbers 23:19, Mark 16:20
F. Because 
the 
power
 confronts 
and 
subjugates 
Satan; 
it 
is 
the 
proof
 that his 
occupation 
on 
earth 
has 
ended
 and 
the 
government 
of 
God
 has been 
established. 
The
 kingdom
 of 
God 
pushes 
out 
the 
enemy 
and 
his kingdom
 of 
darkness
 wherever 
they 
seek
 to 
gain 
control.
 – 
Luke
 10:19; 
11:20; 
1
 John 
3:8.

If the enemy has ever lied to you that you aren’t deserving of the power of the

Holy Ghost, and that the ability to operate in the supernatural power of God is only reserved for those in full-time ministry, then these few points above can completely annihilate those lies.

Whatever has been limiting you from operating in the power of the Holy Spirit, I declare and decree that it will be dealt with right now, in Jesus Name!

As a Prophet, I declare that a hunger for His Presence and His Word shall be ignited on the inside of you like never before.

May the Spirit of Revelation and Understanding come upon you, His presence begin to increase like never before, and for His Power to flow forth from your life. In Jesus Mighty Name, Amen!
