Revelations by the Holy Spirit
Chapter Eight (8) of the Epistle to the Romans is replete with key and crucial revelations that can only be perceived, appreciated and embraced through the Holy Spirit.
Revelation One (1)
"There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.” (Romans 8:1 NKJV). Those who believe in Christ Jesus are no longer subject to the condemnation or accusation of the devil. Those who believe in Christ Jesus have no sins conscience and do not struggle with a guilt complex, because judgement has befallen the Lord on the cross. For this reason the sacred Scriptures declare, “Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies..” (Romans 8:33 NKJV). The Holy Spirit reveals this truth to us and helps us to comprehend it. This enables us to face any charge brought against us by the devil and to proclaim that those who believe in the Lord can no longer be condemned on account of the Lord’s intercession for us.
Revelation Two (2)
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28 NKJV) There is nothing that can harm us. Surely mercy and goodness shall follow us all the days of our life. The Holy Spirit affirms that all things work together for our good, including things that, logically, can cause
destruction and damage.
Revelation Three (3)
“He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” (Romans 8:32 NKJV) The Lord will supply all our needs. He is our Shepherd … we will lack nothing. The Lord experienced torture, agony and even death for our sake, how will he not also grant us all things? The Holy Spirit assures us that we will lack nothing and that we will not live in anxiety but in trust and serenity.
Revelation Four (4)
“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.” (Romans 8:2 NKJV) One of the privileges of the believer is freedom from the captivity of sin and the dominion of the old nature. Relying on the Holy Spirit in our struggle against the old nature secures victory (unlike Paul who experienced failure in Romans 7). “Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live." (Romans 8:12-13 NKJV). We are no longer held captive to the old nature.
Revelation Five (5)
"Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us." (Romans 8:37 NKJV) We are not called to live in defeat or accept it as the norm. It is God's plan that we lead the victorious life with defeat being only transient in nature. Even if we go through trouble, hardship, nakedness, danger or sword, we can proclaim that by the help of the Holy Spirit, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?' (Romans 8:35 NKJV) Nothing shall separate me from the love of the Lord, because in all the troubles and adversities I face I will be more than a conqueror through Him who loved me.
For that reason, we need to seek the infilling of the Holy Spirit to lead a life that…
- Experiences these revelations;
- Secures the victory;
- Feels fulfilled and lacks nothing;
- Finds trying circumstances working together for our benefit; and,
- That Satan’s charges against us invariably fail !!
