"The Helper"

“The Helper”



When the Helper comes, He will prove to the people of the world the truth about sin, about being right with God, and about judgment.  He will prove to them that sin is not believing in Me.  He will prove to them that being right with God comes from My going to the Father and not being seen anymore.  And the Helper will prove to them that judgment happened when the ruler of this world was judged.        John 16:8-11


The Helper, the Holy Spirit, has a three-fold ministry to mankind.  First, He proves to mankind, the TRUTH about SIN.  He brings CONVICTION and GUILT or He exposes SIN to a person’s mind showing them the TRUTH about SIN’S folly, and its CONSEQUENCES, and He shows them the TRUTH about the RIGHTEOUS and HOLY GOD and His plan for mankind.   SIN is rebellion against God.  The GREATEST SIN, today is the REJECTION of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Mankind has suppressed the TRUTH about God, therefore, it is NECESSARY for the Helper, the Holy Spirit, to CONVICT and CONVINCE mankind of their transgressions (SINS).


Secondly, the Helper, shows mankind the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Jesus Christ.   The Jewish people believed Jesus to be UNRIGHTEOUS, because of His crucifixion.  He was hung on a tree.  They thought He was cursed by God.  Galatians 3:13b, states. It is written in the Scriptures, ‘Anyone whose body is displayed on a tree is cursed.’   However, this was God’s plan to bring SALVATION to a LOST and DYING world.  And the RESURRECTION and ASCENSION of Christ vindicated Him as a RIGHTEOUS, HOLY, OBEDIENT SERVANT of the ALMIGHTY GOD.   


Thirdly, the Helper, shows mankind God’s JUDGMENT.  It is coming!  Jesus, by His death on the cross, has already DEFEATED the devil, and his execution is coming.  He has already been judged and found GUILTY!!  Those who are still in their SIN, rebelling against God Almighty, NEEDS to take NOTICE of the fact that Satan has been DEFEATED by Jesus and  JUDGED by God, the ONE who holds the POWER to JUDGE.  One day, Satan and those who are REBELLIOUS against God will meet their fate, which will be an ETERNITY in Hell, the place of UNENDING torment, torture, pain, agony, heartache and despair, with NO WAY of ESCAPE.


When the Helper, the Holy Spirit brings CONVICTION upon a rebellious person, they NEED to HUMBLE themselves and come before God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING their SINS to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL their HEART, that Jesus died for them and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for them, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and if YOU are that REBELLIOUS person, then you need to do this NOW, while you still can.  He is waiting and coming SOON!!!
