The Holy Spirit descended upon Christ and His first message was an assurance of love …not instructions, not power, not a demonstration of miracles … not great and hidden wisdom …but the love of God. Jesus hears God confirm that He is the beloved of God
Mat 3:16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: :17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
“The Holy Spirit as a Divine Helper rekindles hope (Romans 15:13). It is therefore, time for the hopeless to abound again in hope. Because hope makes not ashamed (Romans 5:5), we are trusting God that through this convention, shame will be terminated where found in our lives. The barren shall shall be helped and they shall become fruitful, the sick and the afflicted shall obtain help and shall be healed, help will flow in the direction of the bound and they shall be set free, the forgotten shall be remembered at last, every good thing that might have died in our lives shall come alive again, there shall be uncommon signs and wonders. They shall all be divinely helped.” says Pastor E.A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God.
I was pondering over the lyrics of Josh Groban’s song “ You are loved … which so inspiringly declares …
Everybody wants to be understood …Well I can hear you
Everybody wants to be loved …Don’t give up
Because you are loved.
As the ministry of Christ began, He will begin to teach many things that even today thousands of years later, many still do not understand. He would be despised by men, rejected of men …only to be spat upon and crucified. But He will always remember these important words of the Spirit of God …”This is my Beloved Son…” and these words will burn in His soul as He stood before Pilate, as Judas betrayed Him, as Peter denied Him … as the mob rushed to attack Him. He will remember that God hears all His prayers and loves Him. How I pray someone will be blessed and encouraged by the Holy Spirit not to give up on God. You are loved in spite of all you may see or think. Do not fear Ebola … you are sheltered and loved.
