The power of the Spirit of Promise came over Abraham, later over Isaac, then over Jacob, over his son Joseph and also over Moses, Joshua, Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David and the prophets.
Up to that point, only the children of Israel possessed such strength. But when God Himself came in the Person of His Son Jesus, the Spirit of Promise was expanded to include Gentiles, or non-Jews.
From that time on, the Spirit of Promise came over the apostles and anyone else that believed and surrendered to the Lord Jesus Christ with all their strength, with all their understanding and with all their heart.
Each of these believers became a symbol in his age and manifested the glory of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel.
Each one of them made a difference in their respective eras.
They died, but the Spirit of Promise has not.
Just as each of them was replaced over the centuries and millennia, TODAY, the Spirit of Promise is searching for someone to replace His heroes of faith of the past in order to manifest the same glory in the present.
He wants to possess people of character…
People who are not afraid to stand up for their faith…
A faith that contradicts religiosity and personal interests and is ready to sacrifice the kingdom of this world for the Kingdom of God…
People who believe in the eternity of their souls and are willing to give up this world for eternal glory.
Who longs to surrender body, soul and spirit and be possessed by the Spirit of Promise?
Who is ready to do anything for his faith and love for the Lord Jesus Christ?
That’s right. Whoever wants to be, and to make a difference has to go against the behavior of the society we live in.
Who is ready to give up ownership over your own life and be a servant of the Lord of Promise?
Who longs for this?
Note how knowledge of the promise does not guarantee its fulfillment.
You have to be possessed by the Spirit of Promise in order to take possession of it. But to have Him you must pay the price.
