Meet the The Breath of Yah, The Ruach Hohadesh, The Holy Spirit, who can do it all. He is the Spirit of Yehueh. He has limitless power and wisdom, yet He willingly comes to live inside any person who believes in Yehshua/ Jesus Christ. And that means we have access to His amazing power.

Through the power of the Holy Spirit, believers are saved, filled, sealed, and sanctified. The Holy Spirit reveals Yehueh’s thoughts, teaches, and guides believers into all truth. The Holy Spirit also helps Believers in their weakness and intercedes for them.

The Holy Spirit Is a Helper Who Teaches and Reminds

In John 14:26 Jesus told his disciples, “the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you” (John 14:26, ESV)

The Greek word “Parakletos” in this passage is translated “Helper” in the ESV, “Advocate” in the NIV, and “Counselor” in the KJV. The meaning of this word relates “legal counsel.”

The Holy Spirit provides wise counsel to Christ’s followers. Yehshua knew He would be going away and that His followers would need the Holy Spirit as a helper and an advocate to remind them of His teachings.

Yehshua told Nicodemus that we are born again by the Holy Spirit. “Truly, truly, I say to you,” Yehshua said in John 3:5, “unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” True conversion is the most supernatural thing we will ever experience. When a person puts his faith in Christ for salvation, it is the Spirit who opens the heart and imparts divine life.

He then indwells us, giving us the confidence that we are now children of Yehueh. None of us would be Belivers today if it were not for the regenerating power of the Spirit.

When the Holy Spirit enters the life of a repentant believer, He literally breathes new life into the dead! Just as the prophet Ezekiel watched dry skeletons stand up, grow new flesh, and breathe again (Ezek. 37), people who are dead in sin are resurrected to a new life when they believe in Yehshua Messiah for the first time.

Never forget the raw power of conversion. Of all the manifestations of the Holy Spirit available to us, conversion is the most precious—and the most powerful. Never minimize the Holy Spirit’s power to transform a sinner!
