Taking Action – Receiving and Operating the Gifts and Power of Holy Spirit by Reinhard Bonnke
The Father gave us two gifts, both personal and equal first His Son and then His Spirit. Jesus ranked the Spirit alongside Himself, describing Him as another Comforter. Christ said it was better for the Spirit to come than for He Himself to be with us in the flesh. The Holy Spirit’s commission is to take the place of Christ. Jesus healed the sick, for example, and the Holy Spirit follows the pattern of Christ. How do we know who the Spirit is? The Holy Spirit is God in action. Whenever there are supernatural operations, they are by the Spirit. All divine manifestations, such as the gifts, are always by the Spirit. When God moved on the world in the beginning, it was by His Spirit. The Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. The Father’s will is spoken by the Word and performed by the Spirit. He is the executive of the Godhead.
