Holy Spirit Empowerment
By Benny Hinn
It was the Holy Spirit who gave Jesus the power to feed the multitudes, walk on water, and raise the dead, demonstrating that He was indeed the Son of God.
It was the Spirit who helped Him endure the cross.
And it was the Holy Spirit who raised Him from the dead.
The Holy Spirit played a vital role in every phase of Jesus' life---his conception and birth, His boyhood and youth, His mission and ministry, His suffering and death, His resurrection and exaltation.
The Spirit was fully the presence and power of God in Jesus.
Before His ascension, Jesus made an extraordinary promise to His disciples, "Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endured with power from on high," He told them.
"But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me" (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8).
