Mike Murdock: The Holy Spirit Handbook (written message0

One of my favorite authors is Mike Murdock, not only for his apparent wisdom that could only have been birthed in the womb of the Spirit's Presence, but also for the conciseness of his style.  He says so much in such few pages.  I'm one of those people who've read, heard, watched enough story lines to not be impressed by 'fluff' or 'fillers'-just get to the point-that's all I want.  Mike Murdock is that type of writer.

The Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Trinity is one of the most vital Topics ALL SPIRIT-FILLED believers must continually seek to understand, acknowledge, experience, obey and gain an ever-increasing depth of revelation concerning.

 What I enjoy about The Holy Spirit Handbook is that Mr. Murdock a presents a refreshingly practical perspective that inspires activity, implementation, engagement!


For example:
 in Chapter 8: The Holy Spirit Loves Conversation, he writes:

The Holy Spirit will talk to you about things in your future.(John 16:12b)

The Holy Spirit will talk to you about those to whom you are assigned (Acts 8:29)

the Holy Spirit will talk to you about the motives of those around you. (Acts 11:12)

The Holy Spirit will talk to you about your specific Assignment (Acts 13:2)

The Holy Spirit will discuss the location and geographical area of your Assignment. (Acts 13:4)

The Holy Spirit knows where your gits are most desperately needed.(Acts 8)

The Holy Spirit knows the very person who can answer the questions that perplex you.(Acts 8)

The Holy Spirit will link you miraculously with those who will celebrate you. (Acts 8)

The Holy Spirit will reveal those on whom judgment is falling. (Acts 13: 9, 10)

The Holy Spirit reveals those who despise you as an enemy (Acts 13:9, 10)

The Holy Spirit will reveal those who are filled with demon spirits (Acts 13:9, 10)

The Holy Spirit will reveal to you the difference between the essential and nonessential issues (Acts 15:28)

The Holy Spirit will talk to you about the place of provision and supply (I Kings 17: 3, 4)

The Holy Spirit will talk to you about problems in the lives of other people.

The Holy Spirit within you will become a Source of agitation to unholy men (Acts 6:10)

You must move away from the voice of others when you really want to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit.

  • Solitude is necessary for intimacy
  • Intimacy is necessary for impartation
  • Impartation is necessary for change
You can only change when the Holy Spirit is talking into your life

[this is how 'praying without ceasing' happens, you begin to acknowledge Him in every aspect of your life, out of love and necessity-paula]
