Acts 2:17 (NET) ‘And in the last days it will be,’ God says, ‘that I will pour out my Spirit on all people, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy, and your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams.
Stephanie was a drug addict before she met Seye who preached the gospel to her and started to disciple her. Stephanie’s testimony was that through the power of the Holy Spirit, she was able to overcome an addiction that no doctor or rehab could solve.
Before the last days, just anyone could not receive the infilling of the Holy Spirit. This was a special preserve for God’s holy prophets who were descendants of Abraham. But according to scripture, one of the markers of the last days will be the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on all people. Today, anyone anywhere can receive the Holy Spirit and become a member of God’s family.
Every time a person is convicted and repents, that is the work of the Holy Spirit. The natural inclination of the heart of [fallen] man is not Godward. So when you see people repenting and having the desire to know the living true God, it is because of the active work of the Holy Spirit. It is because of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit that the required number of people to occupy God’s [vacant] thrones would come into his kingdom. When that number has reached its fullness, the Lord Jesus will return (Romans 11:25-26, Matthew 24:14). Jesus would not rule the universe alone when he returns. He would need functionaries who would be part of His government. The Holy Spirit has been in the world since Pentecost, gathering these functionaries.
One of the most important things the Holy Spirit is doing in the world today is to convict people and bring them to repentance. He is raising an army of God’s sons who will rule and reign over God’s creation for all eternity. By preaching the gospel and making disciples, We (the church) partner with Him to bring people into the kingdom so that the end will come for this current world order. This is how the Spirit and the bride say come(Rev 22:17).
Go into today remembering that it is because of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit that any sinner can become a saint. Determine to cooperate with Him today to bring many people into the family of God.
