The Holy Spirit is a Powerful Invisible Force that originates with the Almighty God. In the past Holy Spirit was used in creating the stars in the Heavens and the Earth and all life. Isaiah 40:26“Lift up your eyes to heaven and see. Who has created these things? It is the One who brings out their army by number; He calls them all by name. Because of his vast dynamic energy and his awe-inspiring power, Not one of them is missing.” The HolySpirit was used in protecting Israel and the Kings that sat upon Jehovah’s Throne on Earth.
God’s Spirit was upon Moses and Aaron and the plaques on Egypt. God had created a covenant with the people who came through the Red Sea before Mt. Sinai. If the Kings were committed to obeying God’s law and principles, Holy Spirit blessed the people and their fields and herds. Wicked Kings put faith in themselves, their disobedience drove God and His Spirit away. The last king under this arrangement of this was in 607 B.C.E.
The Holy Spirit came upon Elizabeth, Mary, John the Baptist, Jesus and his Apostles and disciples. The Holy Spirit aided Jesus to read the inner thoughts of people like the Samaritan Woman at the well. The Holy Spirit performed all the miracles, healings and resurrections from the dead. The Holy Spirit was upon the Apostles as they went door to door preaching about the New Hope of God’s Kingdom, a government in Heaven that will remove sin and its affects upon us. All the miracles showed that God’s direction was to believe Jesus and hope in this future day when the Kingdom would rule the Earth. When the last Apostle died, the Holy Spirit retreated until the Last Days began.
God’s Spirit has not been upon the Kings or churches of the Dark Ages. They were all part of the Gentile Times, where God has left mankind to govern as they desired. He did this to show that what Satan said to Eve was a lie. Mankind needs God’s moral direction, His structured life will bring peace and unity to the entire human society living on Earth under His Kingdom. The Early rulership of King Solomon is an example of God’s Spirit and its blessing.
Holy Spirit: The Last Days and Gentile Times
In 1914 the Gentile Times ended and Jesus sat upon the Throne of God’s Kingdom. Like in the days of kings and their walled kingdoms, Jesus began cleansing the heavenly part of his kingdom, for many angels had selfish desires apart from loyalty to God and His way for angels in heaven. The world changed when Jesus cast them to Earth in late 1914. Da 4:10-17, Revelation 12:12,
Holy Spirit: From 1914 Down to Today
What was Jesus purpose then? While on Earth Jesus purpose was to lead the Jewish people to believing and hoping in God’s Kingdom. He constructed an organization of Apostles and disciples who would become fellow rulers with him in the Kingdom. There were 144,000 seats to fill. Those Jesus taught preached the Good News of that future government to the most distant parts of the inhabited Earth at that time. After Jesus death, what was to happen? His parting command to his disciples at Mtt.28:19 help us to understand. Matthew 28:19“Go, therefore, and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit,20 teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded you. And look! I am with you all the days until the conclusion of the system of things.” The Holy Spirit and it’s miraculous powers faded away during the Dark Ages as the Apostle Paul foretold at 1 Corinthians 13:8, however the spirit continued to open minds of those really seeking God to spiritual truth. The Holy Spirit denies understanding to those who desire it for self advancement. It is amazing that something can be written on a page, yet God hides it’s deeper meaning from all except those with a proper motive! Daniel chapters 2, 4, 8, 9 and 12 has many verses not widely understood by the world alienated from God.
Holy Spirit: Today
Today the Holy Spirit has continued to gather people on Earth to hope in God’s Kingdom as the solution to mankind’s problems. We see that there is only one kingdom and not several. There was only one Jesus, not several. There was only one Moses and not several. There was only one Abraham and not several. Today there is One Group of people who the Holy Spirit has influenced to preach the Good News of God’s Kingdom in all they inhabited Earth, as a witness to all the nations, as foretold as a sign of the Last Days at Mtt.24:14. “And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” By Holy Spirit aids us in recognizing that only one religious group on Earth today has preached the Good News of God’s Kingdom from door to door in all the inhabited Earth since the late 1800’s. For 144 years Jehovah’s Witnesses have continuously published and distributed the Watchtower Magazine worldwide, increasing in the vernacular tongues day after day until now. The cover page of that magazine proclaims: “Announcing Jehovah’s Kingdom” https://jw.org/en/library/magazines/watchtower-no2-2020-may-jun/…
