Understanding the ministry of the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is responsible for supernatural shifts in all realms of life

WHO IS THE HOLY SPIRIT?
The Holy Spirit is the third Personality of Divinity (1John 5:7; Gen. 1:1-3; 2Cor. 13:14; Luke 3:21-22)
THERE ARE THREE DISPENSATIONS:
1. The dispensation of the Father: The Father operated from creation and was fully in charge until the Son of God was born.
2. The dispensation of the Son: The dispensation of the Son was from His birth to death and resurrection
3. The dispensation of the Holy Spirit: From the day of Pentecost, the dispensation of the Holy Spirit commenced and it shall continue until rapture.
We are in the dispensation of the Holy Spirit and you must be on fire in the Holy Spirit!
HOW DIVINITY OPERATES (THREE-IN-ONE):
1. The Father oversees/determines (John 5:30)
2. The Son proclaims/declares (John 1:1)
3. The Spirit executes/delivers (Zech. 4:6)

The form of the Sun is like the Father
The Light of the Sun is like the Son
The Heat of the Sun is like the Spirit
