These notes are from my husbands message on the Help of the Holy Spirit. (not full notes, these are my notes)

John 14:16-18 The Holy Spirit is a gift to the believer from Jesus. He said He would ask the Father to send us another Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Strengthener, & Standby)

The Holy Spirit is a person & He response to direct faith when it is properly placed in what Jesus did at the Cross.

VS 26 He will teach you all things & brings all things to your remembrance, what so ever I have said unto you. 

The Holy Spirit can not fail, so if you have His help you can not fail. 

Gen. 1:2 The Spirit of God moved on… Just as when we give our hearts to Jesus & believe on what He did for us, The Holy Spirit moves on us. The Holy Spirit honors faith placed in what Jesus did for us. The Help of the Holy Spirit is guaranteed to anyone who will place their faith in what Jesus did at the cross. 

The Holy Spirit did not carry out the price paid by the Lord Jesus Christ at Calvary’s Cross, but even then the Holy Spirit functioned in every capacity of the master’s life & ministry. 

Conception- Matt. 1:18

Ministry – Matt. 3:16 Luke 4:18-19

Cross – Heb. 9:14

Resurrection – Rom. 8:11

Fallen man can not produce anything, that is why we need the help of the Holy Spirit. 

Proper work will not produce proper faith. But proper faith will produce proper works. When we place our faith in what Jesus did at the cross, that gives the Holy Spirit latitude to help us.

The Holy Spirit will not leave us. He is our helper. He holds us up. He makes intercession for us. He pleads on our behave. (Rom. 8:28) He teaches us about Jesus. He leads us to the Father. 

The Holy Spirit is practical. He can warn us & prepare us to what is coming. The Holy Spirit is personal, available, adequate, dependable, & wise. 

1 Cor. 2:14 The natural man can not receive the things of God, but the Holy Spirit helps us to receive & understand the word.

No one comes to Jesus unless the Holy Spirit draw him. 

The Holy Spirit reveals our sin to us. He will show us things that do no belong in our lives. 

The Holy Spirit will remind us of the faithfulness of God. 

People say that experience is the best teacher. The Holy is the best teacher. Sometimes your experience is deceptive & sometimes leads you away from God & what He wants for you. 

The Holy Spirit gives us power to live like we are suppose to live. He will only work in the confines of what Jesus did at the cross. Our faith place in Jesus & what He did give us the power of the Help of the Holy Spirit to live.

These last days are hard & will get even harder. The bible says that men’s hearts will fail them for fear of the things they see happening on the earth. 

We need the Help of the Holy Spirit. I encourage you to study and learn about the Holy Spirit and why you need His help. God has provided all we need to be over comers. Walk in Him, believe what was done for you and receive the help of the Holy Spirit.

There are many types of Fear. There are over 180 different types of Fear.  

Fear of People, Fear of death, Fear of the unknown, Fear of the future, fear of the past, fear of going crazy, fear of loss, fear of failure, and much, much more. 

The origin of fear is the same, satan. The results of fear can be many different things. Fear is so big in these las days that many will not have the courage to continue. Many will even commit suicide. The bible says in Luke 21:26 that men’s hearts will fail them for fear.  So weather that means they will commit suicide or their heart will stop beating, the results of fear are the same. SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT MAKE IT TO THE END. (The bible says those who endure to the end shall be saved. 

Fear is an emotional response to threats and danger. Fear is often related with pain, you may have fallen in the past, so you are afraid of heights. Or you were hurt by someone or something, so now you are afraid of things and people. 

Research shows that people can get sick from fear. They even say that death can come from fear. Even healthy people have been known to be “scared to death”.  Fear often starts out a being concerned about something and can grow into where you are so afraid even to move. Your heart starts racing and you become sick. You can become fatigued and experience many physical symptoms in your body because of fear. 

People see all the things that are going on in the earth and that fear will overcome them if they submit to it. Luke 21:9 says that people will hear (the other verse said see or looking) & they will fear, but if tells us not to become alarmed & panic stricken & terrified: for all these things must take place first…

For Christians we should have great joy because we know that Jesus will be coming soon to take us home. So rather than being terrified of what is happening in the world, we should confidently & joyfully await the return of Christ. 

So in the last days DON’T QUIT, DON’T QUIT QUITTING! DON’T QUIT TURNING BACK TO GOD! DON’T QUIT REPENTING! SIMPLY DON’T QUIT.

Next, another result of fear is bondage.

Rom. 8:15 For [the Spirit which] you have now received [is] not a spirit of slavery to put you once more in bondage to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption [the Spirit producing sonship] in [the bliss of] which we cry, Abba (Father)! Father!

People are slaves to fear. They even serve fear. There are people who can’t even move or do what they want because fear has such a hold on them, they can only move as fear moves them. Fear imprisons, fear paralyzes, and much more. 

Fear has torment.

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

Fear respects no one. Many people from all walks of life live in fear. Fear strikes the mind and holds it captive so you will not be effective for God or man. Fear can paralyze someone so much that they will not do the things God has planned for them. Fear breaks communion with God. A fearful person cannot live in the presence of God. And that is satan’s ultimate goal, is to get you so fearful that you will not be with, experience, or even turn to God at any moment in time. 

Men in the bible had results of fear, but they knew if they turned to God, they would be set free. See here that it made him suffer in his body. 

Isaiah 21:3-5 

 3 Therefore are my loins filled with pain: pangs have taken hold upon me, as the pangs of a woman that travaileth: I was bowed down at the hearing of it; I was dismayed at the seeing of it.

 4 My heart panted, fearfulness affrighted me: the night of my pleasure hath he turned into fear unto me.

Fear NOT, for I am with thee:

Isaiah 35:4

Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense; he will come and save you.

Isaiah 41:10

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Isaiah 41:13

For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.

Isaiah 43:1

But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.

Isaiah 43:5

Fear not: for I am with thee…

Isaiah 44:8

Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.

We will talk more at another time what our response to fear should be, but just remember that Fear is a Spirit, it is from Satan, & God does not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. He wants you to walk with Him without any hindrances. He wants you free. That is why Jesus came. Without Jesus you do not have any hope. 

Ephesians 2:12

That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world…

So do not act like you are like those without hope. You have the one who created the world behind you and in you. He is your strength! He is your hope! He will not leave you, not forsake you!! Look to Him!! Be FREE!!

Why does satan use fear? 

When people fear they revert back to their old nature. Fear is not a part of your born again nature. Your new nature is of God.

2 Cor. 5:17 Therefore if any person is [engrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!

When you give your life to God & except what Jesus did at the Cross you no longer walk as one in darkness. We do not follow after the flesh (the old Adamic nature). 

Satan wants you to walk in the old nature to be like him, not God. He will lie to you, deceive you, and try to make you fear so you will be like him and not like God. 

Rom. 8:1 THEREFORE, [there is] now no condemnation (no adjudging guilty of wrong) for those who are in Christ Jesus, who live [and] walk not after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit.

Satan wants you to walk in fear so condemnation will come upon you. He wants you to walk in fear so you will live & walk after the dictation’s of the flesh. Satan wants you to be controlled by the flesh. But when you are born again the Holy Spirit comes to your aide so you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. 

Rom. 8:5 For those who are according to the flesh and are controlled by its unholy desires set their minds on and pursue those things which gratify the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit and are controlled by the desires of the Spirit set their minds on and seek those things which gratify the [Holy] Spirit.

Satan wants you not to have peace. Vs. 6  Now the mind of the flesh [which is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit] is death [death that comprises all the miseries arising from sin, both here and hereafter]. But the mind of the [Holy] Spirit is life and [soul] peace [both now and forever]. But we can have peace in God. We do not have to fear life and what life holds. 

Vs 7 The carnal mind is hostile to God. Satan tries to put fear on you so you will revert back to your old ways. Carnal thinking, walking in the flesh is all hostile & against God. 

Satan wants you in bondage. Rom. 8:15 For [the Spirit which] you have now received [is] not a spirit of slavery to put you once more in bondage to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption [the Spirit producing sonship] in [the bliss of] which we cry, Abba (Father)! Father!

Fear paralyzes you so you can not cry Abba Father. 

Satan wants you to make decisions according to the flesh. Fear causes you to make wrong decisions. You become stupid & all you have learned of God does not flow from you. 

Your flesh will control you, unless you are controlled by the Holy Spirit. Fear is a Spirit and it controls you if you let it.  And God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power & love & a sound mind. Fear has torment and it takes away your power. 

Gal. 5:16 But I say, walk and live [habitually] in the [Holy] Spirit [responsive to and controlled and guided by the Spirit]; then you will certainly not gratify the cravings and desires of the flesh (of human nature without God).

Satan knows that if he can get you to walk continually in fear you will have your part in the lake of fire(Rev. 21:8) And you will be separated from God forever.

Fear causes anger, bad feelings towards others, slander, lying lips, & much more from the flesh. Satan wants you destroyed. He does not want you to walk with God in peace. Fear takes faith from you & without faith it is impossible to please God. 

Fear causes you to look at self. You do not look at God and what He can do, you only look at your shortcomings and what you can do in the flesh. Fear stops you from living and Jesus came so you might have life and have it more abundantly. He came to destroy the works of satan. 

The devil is a destroyer and he wants to destroy your peace, your joy, & every aspect of your born again life and your walk with God. 

Fear causes you not to hear God’s voice. God wants to walk with you and talk with you. He does not want you to fear. 

Ps. 62:8 Trust in, lean on, rely on, and have confidence in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts before Him. God is a refuge for us (a fortress and a high tower). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

Ps. 115:9 O Israel, trust and take refuge in the Lord! [Lean on, rely on, and be confident in Him!] He is their Help and their Shield.

Ps. 23 1 THE LORD is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack.

   2 He makes me lie down in [fresh, tender] green pastures; He leads me beside the still and restful waters.

    3 He refreshes and restores my life (my self); He leads me in the paths of righteousness [uprightness and right standing with Him–not for my earning it, but] for His name’s sake.

    4 Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort me.

    5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my [brimming] cup runs over.

    6 Surely or only goodness, mercy, and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, and through the length of my days the house of the Lord [and His presence] shall be my dwelling place.

Is. 12:2 Behold, God, my salvation! I will trust and not be afraid, for the Lord God is my strength and song; yes, He has become my salvation.

Ps. 46:1 GOD IS our Refuge and Strength [mighty and impenetrable to temptation], a very present and well-proved help in trouble.

God is here for you. You do not need to fear. Satan is a liar and the father of all lies. Trust God and walk with Him. Resist all that satan would try to put on you. Do not let fear have a place in your life. Walk in the Spirit and you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. You can do it with God. All things are possible in Him. Do not fear!! Trust!! God is not going to tell you about tomorrow, he wants you to trust Him. Though things change and you don’t understand, God knows all. He already knows what will happen one minute from now, one hour from now, one year from now, and He has it all under control. So don’t let fear control you or have any part of your life. FEAR NOT!! TRUST HIM!

Matt10:28 And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; but rather be afraid of Him who can destroy both soul and body in hell (Gehenna).

God does not want us to fear people. Others do have influence over us if we let them. Others can make you feel things and do things that God does not want for you. It is important that we see things the way God wants us to see. Do not Fear men!

John 8:20 Jesus said these things in the treasury while He was teaching in the temple [[c]court]; but no one ventured to arrest Him, because His hour had not yet come.

He said His hour had not yet come, so no one had power over Him, save only that which is given by the Father. NO ONE has power to do anything to us, unless God allows them to. Do not give others power over you because of FEAR. 

Heb. 13:6 So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me? 

I will not fear what man can do to me!!!! 

PS. 56:4 By [the help of] God I will praise His word; on God I lean, rely, and confidently put my trust; I will not fear. What can man, who is flesh, do to me?

2 Tim. 1:7 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.

God has not given us a spirit of fear. It is the enemy that uses fear to control people. 

Rom. 8:15 For [the Spirit which] you have now received [is] not a spirit of slavery to put you once more in bondage to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption [the Spirit producing sonship] in [the bliss of] which we cry, Abba (Father)! Father!

Fear brings bondage. God wants us to be free. He does not want us to be in bondage to nothing or no one. 

Rev. 21:8 But as for the cowards and the ignoble and the contemptible and the cravenly lacking in courage and the cowardly submissive, (THE FEARFUL & UNBELIEVING) and as for the unbelieving and faithless, and as for the depraved and defiled with abominations, and as for murderers and the lewd and adulterous and the practicers of magic arts and the idolaters (those who give supreme devotion to anyone or anything other than God) and all liars (those who knowingly convey untruth by word or deed)–[all of these shall have] their part in the lake that blazes with fire and brimstone. This is the second death.

WOW, The fearful are listed with the murderers, sorcerers, etc… will have their part in the Lake of fire which burneth with fire… & liars (in word & deed)

Fear breeds unbelief. Why do we fear man??? When fear comes we cowardly submit to whoever & what ever has brought the fear, therefore giving it power over us. But great is He that is in us that he that is in the world. We must submit to Jesus & what He did for us. (…he that the Son set free is free indeed) 

Is. 8:12-13 Do not call conspiracy [or hard, or holy] all that this people will call conspiracy [or hard, or holy]; neither be in fear of what they fear, nor [make others afraid and] in dread.

    13 The Lord of hosts–regard Him as holy and honor His holy name by regarding Him as your only hope of safety], and let Him be your fear and let Him be your dread [lest you offend Him by your fear of man and distrust of Him].

Do not cause others to fear. Do not spread fear. Honor God and Him only. Fear Him and Him only. 

Phil. 1:28 And do not [for a moment] be frightened or intimidated in anything by your opponents and adversaries, for such [constancy and fearlessness] will be a clear sign (proof and seal) to them of [their impending] destruction, but [a sure token and evidence] of your deliverance and salvation, and that from God.

Do not let others intimidate you. They only want destruction and they want you to be side tracked from what God has for you. If you have fear He will deliver you!!!

Ps. 27:1,2,3,5,13,14 – THE LORD is my Light and my Salvation–whom shall I fear or dread? The Lord is the Refuge and Stronghold of my life–of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even my enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though a host encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, [even then] in this will I be confident. For in the day of trouble He will hide me in His shelter; in the secret place of His tent will He hide me; He will set me high upon a rock. What, what would have become of me] had I not believed that I would see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living! Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord.

We do not have hope without God!!!

Ps. 118:6 The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?

Deut. 31:8 It is the Lord Who goes before you; He will [march] with you; He will not fail you or let you go or forsake you; [let there be no cowardice or flinching, but] fear not, neither become broken [in spirit–depressed, dismayed, and unnerved with alarm]. 

Is. 8:11-15 The people were in fear of an invasion. Their enemies were very close. Isaiah told them to fear God only. Fear is an enemy of faith. Fear takes away your peace. It can rob you of your trust in God. God is our shelter & hiding place. Ask God to not let you fear people & fear Him only! Fear not. DO NOT FEAR. The Lord will fight for you. Just as He did for the children of Israel. He brought them out of Egypt to the Red Sea & had them camp there, fully knowing that the Egyptians were coming. When the Israelites “saw” the Egyptians they became exceedingly frightened, they did right at first, they cried out to the Lord. But then fear took over & they became forgetful of all the miracles & all that the Lord had brought them through. Long story short the Lor went between the Israelites & the Egyptians. Ex. 14:20 (so that one came not near the other all night) vs. 14 “The Lord will fight for you, & you shall hold your peace & remain at REST.”

 vs 13 Moses told the people:

1) Fear not

2) Stand still (firm, confident, me undismayed)

3) see the salvation of the Lord

Which He will work for you TODAY!

Be on the watch. DO NOT fear people. If we let fear of people stop us we will not receive what God has for us. 

Rev. 3:11 I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one may rob you and deprive you of your crown.

Rom. 8:35-39 Who shall ever separate us from Christ’s love? Shall suffering and affliction and tribulation? Or calamity and distress? Or persecution or hunger or destitution or peril or sword?

    36 Even as it is written, For Thy sake we are put to death all the day long; we are regarded and counted as sheep for the slaughter.

    37 Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us.

    38 For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers,

    39 Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

We must not let anyone take rob us of our crown. No one can separate us from God. We must stand firm. We must not fear what man can do to us. Hold fast to your convictions and to your faith. Man is nothing compared to our God. Do not let anyone manipulate you into believing them or fearing them. You are a child of God. He will fight your battle and you will have battles. Be of good courage!! We are overcomers!! Look to Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. DO NOT FEAR MAN!!!! BE NOT AFRAID!! What can man do??? NOTHING!!!! We have might God. Serve Him and Him only. Fear Him and Him only. Do not let anyone have any power over you!!!!!!!!!!! Fear has torment! God is love and perfect love cast out fear. Serve God and Him only! Fear God and Him only!
