The Holy Ghost: The Revealer Pastor Sean Pinder And I will pray the Father, and he shall

give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. (John 14:16-17, 26) This is what I want to talk to you about: The Holy GhostThe Secret Revealer. He is a revealer of secrets. This is Jesus talking in verse 16: And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter The word another right there has significance. It is allon, which means another of the same exact kind. That is powerful stuff. In other words, Jesus was telling the disciples, While Im here, Im your Comforter. But, when Im taken away, the Father is going to send the Holy Ghost. Every single thing I was to you, the Holy Ghost is going to be that unto you. The word comforter means intercessor. What is an intercessor? An intercessor is somebody who pleads on behalf of somebody else. Another word for comforter is consoler, which means someone who comforts others. Yet another word for comforter is advocate, which is someone who speaks in favor of another. You do not have to fight for yourself. Quit trying to argue your way out of it. Quit trying to fight for yourself. So, the word comforter means intercessor, consoler, and advocate. We see an example of intercessor in the book of Romans 8:26: For we know not what we should pray for as we ought That is some heavy stuff right there. Unless the Holy Ghost comes on you and gives you some direction in prayer, what you are doing is just mumbling a bunch of vain babbling before God. Jesus said, they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking (Matt. 6:7). We do not know how to pray. I listen to this foolishness all the time. People will go hug someone and say, Boy, such and-such sure knows how to pray! My frien d, that is not the flesh, that is the Holy Ghost. Romans 8:26 says: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Verse 27 says, And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. Now, let me add something to that right there. 1 John 5:14 says, And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he

heareth us. The Bible just said the Holy Ghost maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. Then, 1 John 5:14 -15 tells us: And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: and if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. Your prayers have already been answered. You are about to step into a manifestation! This is my favorite topic: the Holy Ghost. He is a secret revealer. We do not know how to pray. I dont care who you think you are; you do not know how to pray without the Holy Ghost. The older people had more wisdom than what we have. They used to say, You cant sing right until the Holy Ghost comes. You cant preach right until the Holy Ghost comes. That is why Jesus said in Luke 4:18: The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me If I sing good, it is the Holy Ghost. If I preach good, it is the Holy Ghost. If I pray good, it is the Holy Ghost. That is why Zechariah 4:6 says, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. It is the Holy Ghost. Watch what the end of John 14:16 says: he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever. How long will He abide with you? Forever. Some of you thought, after you got your resurrected body, you were going to be done with the Holy Ghost. How long is the Holy Ghost going to be with you? Forever. That is why the book of Romans 8:11 says, But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. That is why the Apostle Paul said, the trump of God [will sound]: and the dead in Christ shall rise first (1 Thess. 4:16). Who do you think does that? That is the work of the Holy Ghost. So Jesus said in John 14:17: Even the Spirit of truth Everybody wants to prophesy. Everybody wants to declare that they have a word. The easiest way to get a word from Heaven is to open your Bible. 2 Timothy 2:15 says, Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. I am not looking for a word. If I want to hear a word from Heaven, I can open up the B-I-B-L-E / Yes, thats the Book for me. / I sta nd alone on the Word of God, / The B-I-B-L-E. Do you want a word? Read your Bible. That is why the Bible says, in the last days, so many people are going to be deceived because they do not even know what the Word of God says. They get Tom, Dick, and Harry prophesying who have not even been trained. They have not been discipled. They have not been set under a pastor and taught properly, but they want to open their mouths and prophesy. Shut your

mouths, sit your backsides down, and submit to authority until you have been taught by the power of the Holy Ghost! Everybody wants to prophesy and they are doing it out of order. Two or three people want to get up and prophesy at the same time. The Bible says to let two sit down and shut up and let one prophet prophesy. Listen to this. It says to let one prophet prophesy while the others sit and judge it (1 Cor. 14). How many of you got a prophecy, went to your pastor, and said, Pastor, do you think this is the Holy Ghost? That is why there is so much error in the body of Christ. Everybody wants to be in charge. Everybody wants to be the pastor. The body of Christ is set up in order: you have a head, and you have a body. John 14:17 says, Even the Spirit of truth Let me help you with this. Why is He called the Spirit of truth? The Bible says in 2 Peter 1:21: Holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. He is called the Spirit of truth because the Bible was breathed by Him. He is called the Spirit of truth because you can stake your life on the fact that the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is the Word of the living God. He is called the Spirit of truth because He is a Spirit of integrity. He is called the Spirit of truth because Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). Are you listening to me? He is called the Spirit of truth because He is the Spirit of Christ. He reveals the will of God to the Church. This is serious business. So He said, Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (John 14:17). They do not want to receive Him because He brings too much conviction on them. He exposes their sinful attitude. The verse continues: because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him Now, He was talking to His disciples while He was on the earth. He said, You know the Holy Ghost because the Holy Ghost was dwelling in Jesus at that time. He said, He is with you right now because He is in me. But there is coming a day, disciples, when He is not going to be with you; He is going to move into you. That is why it says, When the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly (Acts 2:1-2). It does not take God a long time to do what He has to do. suddenly [the Holy Ghost] cameas of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting (Acts 2:3). But, my friend, it is not good enough for the atmosphere to be filled with the Holy Ghost. The Bible says, And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance (Acts 2:4). I feel the Holy Ghost! He lives in us. John 14:26 says, But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name Now, what does that mean, whom the Father will send in

my name? That means in Christs authority; in His place. What did Jesus say in Matthew 28 when He was raised from the dead? He said, All power [and authority] is given unto me I am about to help you understand this. If the Holy Ghost comes in Christs authority, that means the Holy Ghost is moving in all power and all authority. Now, I am going to ask you another question here. Where does the Holy Ghost live? He lives in you. If the Holy Ghost lives in you, that means all power and all authority lives in you. That is why He said, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts (Zech. 4:6). It is by the Holy Ghost. This is some powerful stuff. Where does He live? He lives in you. Is He allpowerful? Does He have all authority? No wonder we can lay hands on the sick; because the Holy Ghost lives in us. The Bible says, K now ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost? (1 Cor. 6:19). When you lay hands on the sick, the anointing of the Holy Spirit that dwells in your body flows into that body. It drives out cancer. It makes the cripples to walk. It heals the sick, raises the dead, opens blind eyes, and causes the deaf to hear. Do you know what you have in you? When the Holy Ghost helped me to understand that revelation, I said, God, Im ready t o go to the whole world and preach this Gospel because I recognize where all power and authority is. No wonder He said, You can go now. You can go into all this world and preach the Gospel because there is no force on the face of this earth that is more powerful than one child of God that is full of the Holy Spirit. There is no demonic force that can match up to one child of God. Are you listening to me? We received word when we were in Africa in 2002, doing a Miracle Crusade. We got word back fro m the pastors. I like action! Who knows what Im talking about? Isnt it amazing how bossy and bigoty some of us were before we were saved? Then we got saved, and now we come to church and want to act timid. God is looking for some bold folks. He is looking for people who have a bulldog tenacity. That is why Jesus said in Matthew 11:12, And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. The violentthe desperate, the folks who arent playing, the people that are hungrythe violent take it by force. Which force is He talking about? He is talking about the force of the Holy Ghost. That is why Jesus said, upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it (Matt. 16:18). Tell the devil, Devil, Im coming! Yes, we got word back in Africa that the witch doctors were sending messages to each other. I challenged all of them. Those pastors thought I was crazy. I challenged every witch doctor in Uganda. I said, If the power of God doesnt fall, kill us and stone us! Some of you are saying right now, Ooo, thank God I wasnt there! Do you know Who lives in you? Paul says, Christ liveth in me ( Gal. 2:20). He liveth. He is alive.

He is Jehovah Jireh. He is Jehovah Shammah. He is Jehovah Shalom. He is Jehovah Nissi. Are you listening to me? He is the Lion of the tribe of Judah. He says, All power and authority has been given unto me. I told the Africans, If the power of God doesnt fall, kill us and run us out of town! Isnt that what Elijah did? He said, Meet me on Mt. Carmel. Playing church days are over. I would like to take some of you to Africa with me. Do you know what happened when the power of God fell in Africa? The witch doctors were shaking and sending messages to one another, saying, Dont go to the Crusade! Theres too much power! No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper ( Isaiah 54:17). When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him (Isaiah 59:19). Say, Witchcraft, you cant touch me because I have power. Get a piece of my hair or my clothes. Take it to the graveyard. You cant do anything with me; I got power! They cannot do anything with you. All they can do is talk about you. Thats all they can do. Tell someone, All they can do is talk , but they cant touch this because the Bible says, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm (Psalm 105:15). Ye shall not need to fight in this battle (2 Chron. 20:17). The battle belongs to the Lord. In 2 Kings, the king of Syria said, We have to take Israel out. Israel represents the church: the people of God. The king of Syria represents the devil . He said, We have to take the people of God out. We have to cut them down. Are you listening to this devils conversation? He is saying, We have to take them out. I cant stand them. Theyre being blessed going in and coming out. They turn to th e left, they get blessed. They turn to the right, they get blessed. We have to do something about it! So the Syrians said, Were gonna cut Israel off. Their king would meet in his bedchamber and say, Were gonna do Israel in this time. But there w as a prophet in Israel. There was a man of God that was filled with the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost revealed the plans of the king of Syria to Elisha. Then, Elisha sent a message to the king of Israel, saying, Dont go to such -and-such a place because the king of Syria is planning to take you out. Tell the devil, Devil, your plans are being shut down right now. His plans are being shut down right now. The Holy Ghost says, Watch how you walk. Be led by the Spirit of God. So the king of Syria got mad. He got ticked off, as my generation would say. He said, Guess what? We have to cut Elisha off. We have to kill him. So you know what he did? He sent 50,000 armed soldiers for one Holy Ghost-filled man. I feel a bully coming on right here. Now why would the king of Syria, who represents the devil, send 50,000 menarmed with swords, spears, and shieldsfor an old prophet who wasnt

even carrying a penknife? I am going somewhere with this. It was because they knew that man of God was bad. They knew he was dangerous. They knew he was bad news to the devil. They knew he had some power! Are you listening to this story? 50,000 men, armed with swords, shields, and spears, for one Holy Ghost-filled man! Tell the devil, Devil, bring it on. Send the demons! Send them! So the Bible says they were coming towards Elisha and Elishas servant started shaking. He saw those 50,000 men coming with swords, shields, and spears and he started shaking. Elisha looked at this fellow and said, Do you know who youre hanging with? Tell someone, You dont have to be afraid. You dont understand who you are hanging with. Elisha was just sitting back, probably eating a piece of chicken, just like I would do. Elisha said, Lord, open this boys eyes so he can understand who he is hanging with. The Bible says God opened that servants eyes. That was the Holy Ghost right there. That was His work. He opened the servants eyes and the Bible says, when he looked, there were horses and chariots of fire surrounding Elisha. We have the devil outnumbered. There were about a million angels on fire! You know 50,000 demons are no match for 1,000,000 angels! That is why it is so important, in this final hour, that we hook up. It is important because the Bible says one can put a thousand to flight, two can put ten thousand to flight (Deut. 32:30). Three can put 100,000 to flight, and four can put 1,000,000 to flight. Lets hook up! Lets put our differences aside. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity ( Psalm 133:1). Quit being mad at each other. Quit talking about each other. Lets hook up. The devil knows the power that is in unity. There were only 120 people on the Day of Pentecost. When the Holy Ghost realized that they were in one accord, He came in a hurry and the known world got turned upside-down! They didnt even have a television ministry or a radio ministry, but they shook the world. Are you listening to me, Church? The struggle is over. You have been stressed out, but the struggle is over, my friends. Those folks who have been hating on you are about to come and give you a hug in the morning. Those folks who could not stand you on the job are about to start loving on you because those demons that were using them have been subdued by the power of the Holy Spirit. Some of your own family have been hating on you. But the tables have turned today. The tables have turned. The battle has turned in your favor. The struggle is over. The famine is over. It is over. You may have been under demonic attack depression and oppressionbut I feel the fire of God on me. There is a breakthrough headed your way.
