How to Activate the Presence of the Holy Spirit (7)


Loved one in Christ Jesus, I believe you are growing in the strength of the Lord. In my previous article, I gave out some holiness keys to help you activate the presence of the Holy Spirit. One important truth you must know as a Christian believer is that the Holy Spirit is real.

In my Christian life, I realized that the more I build myself in the spirit, my spiritual senses (discernment, visions, trance, perception, and dreams) increases. I can connect with the voice and leadership of the Holy Spirit because He is my Father, Guide and Helper.

I remember I met a friend on the Legon campus (University of Ghana). As I sat with this friend, I felt a strong resistance in my spirit, soul and body. I felt a magnet pulling me away from this friend.

The more I tried to get closer with my friend; a Spiritual force pushes me away. My heart began beating a little faster as I sat with this friend. I kept listening to this friend and ignored the Spiritual force pushing me away.

I felt in my body that the resistance has stopped as I kept listening to my friend.  Initially, I did not understand this signal. As I grew in the Lord, I realized that the Holy Spirit separated me from this friend.

The Holy Spirit said this brother had a strange atmosphere (spirit) that opposes the church I fellowshipped with. Because of this strange spirit dominating my friend, the Holy Spirit was separating me from his influence.

The Holy Spirit knew the words and presence of this friend could damage my faith and make me weak in the Spirit, so He pushed me away. Child of God, the Holy Spirit is real. It is time to build a consistent relationship and fellowship with the Holy Spirit because He desires us.

In the spiritual realm, the devil and his minions consistently monitor and attack Christian believers who carry greater glory. One vital weapon the enemy uses against strong Christians is a false accusation and lust of the flesh and eyes.

The devil uses these weapons to destroy and kill our faith in Christ Jesus. If you don’t build yourself spiritually, you may give up on the faith and become an unbeliever. Sometimes the Holy Spirit can reveal a vision to you about a friend or loved one so you can intercede for the person.

When you build a strong capacity in Spirit-led fasting and prayers, you will not struggle to operate in the spiritual realm. That is what I have seen in my spiritual life. The more I fast and pray; the Holy Spirit reveals mysteries to me.

Intercede for your loved ones, government, and spiritual leaders because they are the ultimate target of the enemy (Meditate on 1 Timothy 2:1-4). If the devil can trap your leader, he can manipulate you.

In some churches, carnality has taken over. Instead of the Christian believers building themselves in the Word, prayer and church building, they spend all their resources (time, money, and energy) on their business, family and body.


Some Visions about a Church

Some churches are not growing spiritually because the members have allowed the devil's minions to control some aspect of their lives. I remember the Lord showed me a vision. In this vision, I saw myself in an uncompleted church building.

No one was on the pulpit preaching. Inside the church, I saw the people eating and drinking. The Lord said to me, my children have forsaken my ways. They have allowed the spirit of Jezebel to dominate them.

The spirit of lust and whoredom is ruling the congregation. The congregation is full of dead members. They cannot hear my voice because the desires of the flesh and evil spirits have dominated them.  

They have eyes that cannot differentiate my works and the devil’s work because they are spiritually blind. This congregation have sacked the Spirit-filled members and leaders from my house and made my house a den of thieves and gluttons.

They appoint leaders without my leadership and serve me in ignorance. These people are full of themselves. Because of their carnality and hardened heart, I have forsaken them. They think they are serving me.

They have rejected my path and chosen the system of the devil and the world.  The light on them is weak because they know not my ways. They teach to satisfy their greed and corruption. The Holy Spirit kept speaking unto me.

He said, come out from them. Don't dine with them, for they have corrupted my house and forsaken my chosen ones. Because of their evil deeds, many have backslidden. Many have become unbelievers because of their evil deeds and corrupt habits.

My judgment is in the house. I have separated the sheep from the goats. The true sheep will hear my voice and escape for their lives. If the church fails to repent, I will allow the devil to break in. The unbelievers will fight the church because the church has forsaken me.

In the vision, I was disturbed because I didn't understand the mindset of the church members. It looks like the people within the church were comfortable in their blindness and carnality.

Everything in the church looked gracious, but their spiritual gates, altar, and armour were weak and exposed in the spirit. The devil and his minions could break in to attack the church any moment because there was no covering.

The Holy Spirit has left the church making the place corrupt. I believe the Holy Spirit showed me this vision because the church is imitating the world's system. The church has allowed the spirit of the world to dominate the leadership of the Holy Spirit.

The church must repent from dead works because it produces conflict within the body of Christ Jesus. From my spiritual experience, your environment becomes dark if the devil and his agents are present.

When you find yourself in darkness in the spiritual realm, the enemy has set a conspiracy to terminate your blessings. Repent, fast and pray for God's intervention because prayer is one of the best spiritual weapons to break the enemy's walls. You can read my series of books for more profound revelation.

Knowing the systems of the Holy Spirit and the devil will help you walk in victory. In this article, I will briefly share with you how to activate the presence of the Holy Spirit. Activating the presence of the Holy Spirit will sharpen your spirit and soul to understand the systems of the kingdom.

If you want to experience the supernatural and operate in the prophetic realm, develop a consistent relationship and fellowship with the Holy Spirit. You can read my series of books and previous articles (Spiritual warfare label) more profound revelations.


Associating with the Brethren

One crucial truth you must know as a Christian believer is that Christ Jesus is the Holy Spirit. You can study the personality of Christ Jesus and the Holy Spirit and read the book of John chapter seventeen for more profound revelation.

In the book of Corinthians, Apostle Paul made a powerful statement.


Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

2 Corinthians 13:5 KJV   

Apostle Paul declared that Christ Jesus lives in us, which means Christ Jesus is the Holy Spirit. In his letters to the church in Rome, Apostle Paul wrote that Christ Jesus lives in us.


And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

Romans 8:10 KJV

In the book of Galatians, Paul emphasized that Christ Jesus lives in him (includes every Christian believer).


I am crucified with Christ: neverthless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of

Galatians 5:20 KJV

There are numerous verses in the Holy Scriptures that indicate Christ Jesus lives in us. I gave these scriptures to establish a point I am about to share with you. In Matthew chapter eighteen, verses twenty, Christ Jesus made a profound statement.


For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

Matthew 18:20 KJV

From the Holy Scriptures, we know that Christ Jesus is the Holy Spirit, and He declared that “where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”

This means if you want to activate the presence of the Holy Spirit, you must find a brethren (Christian believer) and fellowship with him in the Spirit. When two or more Christian believers join in one heart and calls on the name of Christ Jesus, the Holy Spirit reveals Himself.

In the book of Acts, the Holy Spirit descended from Heaven and filled the disciples of Christ Jesus with spiritual power and anointing when they came together. If you want the Holy Spirit to dominate your presence, find a Christian believer or some Christian believers and fellowship with them.

Through the fellowship, you will experience the Holy Spirit. When your heart and the heart of the brethren is right with God, the Holy Spirit will dominate that place. If you are married, pray in unity, and the Holy Spirit will dominate the marriage and jurisdiction.

If you want the Holy Spirit to dominate the workplace, home, lecture hall, car, hospital, bank, and the place you live in, connect with the people through prayers, bible discussion, spiritual songs and anything that concerns Christ Jesus. When the gathering is about Christ Jesus, the Holy Spirit will dominate that place with His presence.
