Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional September 25th – Poured Out On All Mankind!

(The Holy Spirit Is Available To Everyone Today)

TO THE BIBLE: Joel 2:28 NASB
“It will come about after this that I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; and your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.”

LET’S TALK
“Ronny, I found out something really interesting in the Word as I studied my Bible,” Marcia excitedly shared. “1 Corinthians 12:3 says no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit. I just saw that and it made me shout!”

“Hmmm, that means when we say, “Jesus is Lord,” the Holy Spirit is the reason we can say so!” Ronald wondered.
“Wow, that’s amazing, guys!” Phil added.

No one can confess the Lordship of Jesus or decide to serve God, except drawn by the Holy Spirit. When the Bible says the word of salvation is in your mouth and heart (Romans 10:8), it’s the Holy Spirit that puts that word in your heart.

Right from when someone declares the Lordship of Jesus for salvation, it’s the Holy Spirit already working in his or her life.

God, knowing that everyone needs the Holy Spirit to believe the Gospel, said in our opening verse, “…It will come about after this that I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind…” (Joel 2:28 NASB).

So, the Spirit has been poured out on ALL MANKIND; this is the reason anyone today can hear and receive the Gospel. In Acts 2, the Bible says a large crowd of Jews came from different nations of the world to celebrate Pentecost (Read Acts 2:9-12).

As Peter ministered the Gospel to them, three thousand of them gave their hearts to Christ. The next time Peter ministered, it was five thousand souls that got converted (Acts 4:4).

Before long, there was a multitude of believers in Jerusalem! Why? The Holy Ghost had been poured out on all mankind, as promised in Joel 2:28.

This is why we preach the Gospel, because we know everyone has the capacity to accept the Word of God. The Holy Spirit is all over the world, working, convicting the world of sin and drawing men to righteousness. Glory to God!

Speak:
I’m a partner with God in changing the world; His partner in soul winning. What an honour it is to preach the Gospel to all men upon whom the Holy Ghost has been poured out! All men are into the light of Christ in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
