This message just gets bigger, better, and deeper! Remember 1 Corinthians 2:10 (AMPC) “Yet to us God has unveiled and revealed them by and through His Spirit, for the [Holy] Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God [the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond man’s scrutiny].” Last week I said that I was going to tell you some things that you probably haven’t heard before about Holy Spirit and the power He brings with him, which is dunamis.
OK, you need to put Holy Spirit to work! Instead of saying, “Why God, why,” or “I wonder why this is happening?” Send the Holy Spirit to find out! He’ll go out to explore, and he’ll diligently search things out. He’ll even go and get the profound bottomless divine counsels of God. If you need revelation or divine counsel, stop whining (I say whining gently) to God about it. Ask Holy Spirit to go get it. He wants to go get it. He’s there 24/7 and he wants to help you figure out what is going on.
Holy Spirit’s an expert, so let’s lean and rely more on Him. We are all worshiping, praising, and thanking the Holy Spirit for his presence (and that’s awesome), but now let’s put him to work!
When Holy Spirit entered you, he didn’t come alone. He brought power with him. That power is called dunamis.
Holy Spirit isn’t power, he’s a person. He’s the third person of the trinity, and he has the mind of God. (He’s the smarty pants.) But, when He entered you, he didn’t come alone. He brought power (dunamis) with him.
Luke 1 tells us that Mary was overshadowed by the Holy Spirit and power (dunamis) when she became pregnant and had the Christ child. So, Holy Spirit brought dunamis with Him!
Another example, is Acts 10:38 where God anointed Jesus Christ with the Holy Spirit and power, and He went around doing good, healing all who were oppressed of the devil. Jesus was led by the Holy Spirit to do the will of the Father, and when he came across a problem or a healing that needed to take place, Holy Spirit worked through Jesus and released dunamis to cause the miracles to happen.
And this is also for us; Acts 1:8 (KJV) “But ye shall receive power (dunamis in the Strong’s), after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you…” Holy Spirit isn’t alone, He brings power with him. In all three of those scriptures, and in others, that word power is the Greek word “dunamis”.
Holy Spirit has the mind of God, and He understands the will of God. So, whenever you ask him to go explore, search out, and find out what is going on in your life, or get you an answer to a problem or situation, He does. He finds out what the root of that thing is, why that sickness is happening to you, or why you’re broke like a joke. He finds out the answer, and brings you the revelation, and then, he applies this power called dunamis, to that specific place that he’s discovered is the source, or the root of that issue, and fixes it with the power he brings with him.
One meaning of dunamis is: power and influence that belongs to riches and wealth! Right now, Holy Spirit lives in you, with dunamis. You have a tankful of Holy Spirit and dunamis power that never runs out.
You can’t figure out why you are broke; “I’m tithing and doing everything I can, why aren’t I prospering? What is the problem?” Well, there could be sin in your bloodline that you don’t know about, or perhaps you’re not a very good steward of your time and talents. Something is happening, and you can’t figure it out. It’s as 1 Corinthians 2:10 says, it’s beyond your scrutiny, hidden from you. You need Holy Spirit to find the answers for you!
Gadzooks! Out of time again. Next time we will explore why we need Holy Spirit and dunamis power to cause us to have influence.
