Introduction

Thousands of religions claim to be the true path to God Almighty (Yahweh). Some have several gods. Some religious groups perform strange rituals to connect with their gods. Some people worship trees, animals, stones, objects and dead people.

Most religious groups worship objects and use magic mirrors to connect with their gods to fill their emptiness. If people can perform evil rituals to a god they don’t know and cannot see, what should we do as Christian believers?

It’s time to know the Holy Spirit. Knowing the Holy Spirit helps you in many ways. You will know whether you are in the right or evil way. Knowing the Holy Spirit assures you that you are following the right person.

You must not follow the Holy Spirit blindly. You cannot follow a god or spirit blindly. Knowing his Character, temperament, and personality would be best. His character, temperament, and nature assure you that you are not with a traitor, deceiver, or murderer.

People can deceive by their looks, words, and actions. However, people will not easily fool you if you are one with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of prophecy. He knows the future.

The Holy Spirit has several fruits. In this article, I will share with you the nine karpos (fruits) of the Holy Spirit. There is no way an orange seed will germinate a pawpaw fruit when planted. The seed determines the fruit.

The fruit will reveal your seed. The Holy Spirit has several seeds and fruits. Knowing these seeds and fruits will help you uncover the Holy Spirit. Below are the nine biblical fruits of the Holy Spirit. Check out my previous article for more profound revelations about the Holy Spirit.

 

The nine characters of the Holy Spirit

nine fruits of the Holy Spirit

…the fruit of the Spirit [Holy Spirit] is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Galatians 5:22-23 KJV (Emphasis added)

 

1. The Holy Spirit is the foundation of agape

Agape (pure, unconditional, and divine love) is the first fruit of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit does not have love. He is the manufacturer, producer, creator, and source of love. Without the Holy Spirit, love will cease to exist.

We have different kinds of love. You can read my series of articles on love or get my book (what is love?) for more profound revelation. The Holy Spirit is not a Spirit of hatred and confusion.

Wherever you see love, the Holy Spirit is present. As stated, we have different kinds of love. The love I’m describing is unconditional and divine love. This love empowers you to pursue God, the Church, and anything that brings glory to the kingdom of God.

Monitor a man who is full of love. That man is one with the Holy Spirit. Question any man who claims to know the Holy Spirit, yet that man cannot show agape. When the Holy Spirit is active in a man, that man shows affection for weak, strong, poor, rich, animals and other creations of God (except the devil and his minions). The books are free on my blog.

When a man is full of the Holy Spirit, he builds the Church with all his heart. Because the Holy Spirit is love, when you become one with Him, He fills you with the seed of love. Any man that constantly creates division, holds grudges and finds it difficult to forgive has no fellowship and relationship with the Holy Spirit.

If you know the Holy Spirit, you will have sympathy. You will love people unconditionally if you are one with the Holy Spirit. You will be interested in the Church and anything that brings glory to God because the Holy Spirit will influence you through agape. The community and people express love (agape) when the Holy Spirit is present. When the Holy Spirit is absent, war, confusion, jealousy, and evil dominate the environment and the people.

 

2. The Holy Spirit is the pillar of chara

One identifying mark of the Holy Spirit is the virtue of joy (chara). The Holy Spirit makes us cheerful. Wherever you see and feel joy, the Holy Spirit is present. The Holy Spirit is calm and cheerful.

Anyone claiming to be one with the Holy Spirit yet lacking joy, cheerfulness, and calmness does not know or have the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit enters your life, He fills you with joy and serenity.

This joy is unexplainable. Most often, you will feel joyful in your heart. This joy has no external influence. It comes straight from your heart because of the presence of the Holy Spirit. In times of confusion, you remain calm and cheerful because of the presence of the Holy Spirit.

You are expressing chara signals that the Holy Spirit is in you. Chara makes you glad in all situations. Whiles the unbelievers complain you will be joyful because of the Holy Spirit. Monitor a man who is always lonely, depressed, and hopeless. Such a man does not know the Holy Spirit.

A man that knows the Holy Spirit will be full of joy. Despite the storms, the man remains calm and joyful because of the presence of the Holy Spirit. Remember, the Holy Spirit is present when an environment is full of unexplainable joy.

 

3. The Holy Spirit is the giver of eirene

The Holy Spirit is not the author of confusion. He is the creator of eirene (peace). The Holy Spirit charges an atmosphere with rest. He is the carrier of wealth. This wealth does not bring pain.

When the Holy Spirit blesses you, he adds no sorrow. Some people have money. However, they don’t have peace. They are always in pain. They cry day and night. These people cannot enjoy “their wealth” because the Holy Spirit is absent in their lives.

When the Holy Spirit is with you, He surrounds you with prosperity. This prosperity brings peace and health to your body, soul, and spirit. You enjoy your sleep when the Holy Spirit is with you.

He makes your environment, business, and Church conducive for increase. Wherever the Holy Spirit is present, the place becomes pleasant, peaceful, and prosperous. Like Joseph, his master became prosperous because of his presence. Joseph became prosperous because of the presence of the Holy Spirit. The presence of the Holy Spirit made the house of Potiphar prosperous.

 

And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.

Genesis 39:2 KJV

The Hebrew word for prosper is tsalach. That word means profitable. Joseph was prosperous (profitable and fruitful). He could push forward. Joseph could break out easily. What other servants in Potiphar’s house found challenging, Joseph did it quickly because the Holy Spirit was with him.

Sometimes people think prosperity is all about money. Money is an aspect of prosperity. Prosperity is more than money. When the Holy Spirit is present, he makes the people and the environment prosperous.

The people and the place become profitable because of the Holy Spirit. People produce things easier. That’s one identifying mark of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit comes with peace, prosperity, and rest.

 

4. The Holy Spirit is the seed of makrothumia

One virtue that makes a sportsman play for a long time is stamina. A footballer with weak stamina often gets tired, injured, and substituted. In the same way, the Holy Spirit is the giver of stamina (energy and life).

The Holy Spirit comes with patience to help us stand the storms of life. He supplies us with the fortitude to walk through the storms of life. When a man is full of the Holy Spirit, he has the seed of makrothumia (longsuffering).

Because of the Holy Spirit, we can bear accusations and persecutions. Like the unbelievers and “some Christians” who cannot stand persecution and accusations, we (Christian believers) can stand this negative energy and demonic arrows because of the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of patience. When he takes control of a man, he makes him patient in all circumstances. Whiles the unbelievers are dying for temporal things, the Christian believer will have the patience to wait for the blessings.

Whiles the unbelievers are killing each other in quarrels and disputes, we will be enduring and triumphing over conflicts. We will be living in peace. That’s the seed of the Holy Spirit. He makes us patient.

The Holy Spirit gives us the stamina to stand and triumph over darkness. Nobody can stand the storms (attacks) of the devil without the makrothumia of the Holy Spirit. Makrothumia gives us the grace to live successfully with wicked people and unbelievers.

This virtue makes us the light of the world. Monitor people and places with the seed of makrothumia (longsuffering, patience, and fortitude). They live above the wind of the enemy. Remember, the Holy Spirit is present when you see makrothumia in people and places.

 

5. The Holy Spirit is the root of chrestotes

Wherever the Holy Spirit is present, you will find chrestotes (gentleness and excellence). The Holy Spirit makes people morally upright. Any man that is morally upright, gentle, and kind to people and God’s creation knows the Holy Spirit because it is one of the virtues of the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is not corrupt. He is kind and gentle. There is no way you will see someone claiming to be one with the Holy Spirit yet lacking the virtue of gentleness, kindness and excellence.

The Holy Spirit makes people and places useful. He refines our character, temperament, and personality. When a man becomes one with the Holy Spirit, he becomes morally upright. His sinful nature depreciates whiles his divine nature appreciates.

The Holy Spirit grows the seed of kindness, gentleness, and excellence in a man when he becomes one with him. Question anyone claiming to know the Holy Spirit yet lacks moral integrity, compassion, and gentleness. If the Holy Spirit is truly active in a person and place, chrestotes dominate.

 

6. The Holy Spirit is the supplier of agathosune

The Holy Spirit does not bring people down. He brings people up. The Holy Spirit empowers people to do great things for God. He does not discourage people from doing the work of God. The Holy Spirit comes with a force that makes us pursue God.

This force makes us unstoppable and untouchable. This virtue shields our hearts and builds our love for God and humanity. The seed of agathosune (goodness) makes us knowledgeable. We become a light to others because of agathosune.

Our presence makes people desire God and the Church. When the Holy Spirit takes control of a place, he makes the people desire the work of God. This virtue builds our inner virtue and empowers us to work for God tirelessly.

You might not see the benefits. However, the seed of agathosune pushes us to work with all our hearts. This virtue makes us persuaded by the truth. The unbelievers will find it challenging to divert our calling and faith because of agathosune. Anytime you see places and people with intense energy to work with God and the Church, the Holy Spirit is present.

 

7. The Holy Spirit is the producer of pistis

Without faith (pistis), you cannot walk with God. It is the Holy Spirit that fills people and places with faith. Monitor a man whose hope and trust are in the Word of God. That man is full of the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit makes us believe in the birth, ministry, death, and resurrection of Christ Jesus. Wherever the Holy Spirit is present, Christ Jesus is exalted. An environment that hates Christ Jesus, the Church, and Christian believers have no dealing with the Holy Spirit.

Because the Holy Spirit is absent in such places, the environment becomes enemies to Christ Jesus, the Church, and Christian believers. However, if the Holy Spirit is present, he makes the environment desires the Church's growth and kingdom activities.

When the Holy Spirit is active in a place, kingdom activities such as evangelism, prayers, fasting, and revivals take place. As far as a man has faith in Christ Jesus, the Holy Spirit is present.

When people exalt the majesty, salvation and teachings of Christ Jesus, the Holy Spirit is active. The Holy Spirit comes with faith. He assures us of our heavenly inheritance. There is no way the Holy Spirit will make us lose faith in Christ Jesus and the Word of God.

If you want to know whether the Holy Spirit is active, observe the activity, actions, and aspirations of the people within a community. When Christ Jesus is exalted, the Holy Spirit is present. When Christ Jesus and the Church are rejected, the Holy Spirit is far from the people and place. Remember, the Holy Spirit is present wherever the Word of God rules.

 

8. The Holy Spirit is the exact representation of praotes

Humility is one identifying mark of the Holy Spirit. Anyone claiming to know the Holy Spirit yet living in pride does not know the Holy Spirit. Pride is the identifying mark of the devil. The Holy Spirit comes with the seed of praotes (meekness).

When an environment is full of proud people, the Holy Spirit is not there. Proud people have no regard for the Church and the Word of God. The Holy Spirit reveals himself with humility.

He is a gentle Spirit. That’s why the Holy Spirit identifies himself with a dove. Christ Jesus identifies himself with a lamb, whiles the Heavenly Father identifies with a lion. The lion is humble.

However, people see them as proud. Study lions from childhood, and you will realize they are humble. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal some mysteries about lions. You will recognize that they are humble.

The dove and the lamb are humble. In summary, the trinity is humble. The Holy Spirit does not come with pride. He comes with humility and gentleness. Humility means dependence on God and His Word for strength and direction, whiles pride is dependence on self for strength and direction. Remember, the Holy Spirit speaks authoritatively. However, his voice is full of humility and love.

 

9. The Holy Spirit is the seed of egkrateia

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of egkrateia (self-control). He does not easily get annoyed when provoked. This virtue makes the Holy Spirit endure the ignorance, weakness, wickedness, and evil of people.

If you are one with the Holy Spirit, you will not quickly get annoyed when people provoke you. I have many reasons to stop the ministry of God because most of my friends and loved ones are having fun (rat race).

I am laboring for Christ Jesus and the Church. People intentionally provoke me. However, the Spirit of God helps me control myself. People tempt by evil. However, the Holy Spirit empowers me to control myself.

While the unbelievers struggle with sin, we (Christian believers) easily triumph over evil because of egkrateia. Any man professing to know the Holy Spirit yet cannot control himself has no relationship with the Holy Spirit.

When the Holy Spirit is active in a place, the people withstand the enemy’s attack. You have power and authority over sin because of egkrateia. Comportment, chastity, and celibacy rule when the Holy Spirit is present in an environment.

Do you know the Holy Spirit?
