He is Our Allos Parakletos (Another Helper)

April 22:2019

And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever.
John 14:16 (NKJV)


An extraordinary manifestation of the awesome divine wisdom of God, which He put to work and deployed while Jesus was on the earth, was for Jesus to exit the scene (the earth) so that the Holy Spirit could come and take direct charge of heaven’s operations and agenda.

Satan moved with anger against Jesus to prevent the destruction of his evil works through Jesus’ performance of diverse miracles. He planned to crucify Jesus and put a stop to Him not knowing that he played into God’s hands! None of the rulers of this age knew this; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. (1 Corinthians 2:8).

While Jesus was on the earth He was limited because, even though He was God, He had made Himself of no reputation and therefore was not omnipresent i.e. being present everywhere at the same time. He, thus, could not meet all of man’s needs at the same time.

His death and resurrection made it possible for the Holy Spirit to come to the earth. This made it easier for Jesus to continue His mission of destroying the works of Satan on a larger scale and dimension through His disciples who were spread all over the world. Apart from this, Jesus death and resurrection also gave men access to and the opportunity to use His name.

Today, not only is the Holy Spirit our Help, Succour, Aid and Assistant, He is also our Lawyer and Advocate. He pleads our cause before God and also influences people on our behalf. We can live our lives and pursue the fulfilment of our gifts, destinies and callings with the assurances that we have His help.

Beloved, learn to yield to the Holy Spirit of God, acknowledge His role in your life and accept His help.

Additional Scripture Reference(s): John 16:13 Luke 24:49 John 14:26

Prayer & Confession of Faith

Dear heavenly Father, thank You for the gift of the Holy Spirit. Dear Holy Spirit, I appreciate You and acknowledge the role that You are playing in my life. I will continue to count on Your help in Jesus name. Amen!
