As little kids growing up, most of us were taught how to pray. At the end of our prayers, we were taught to always say in the name of the Father, in the name of the Son, and in the name of the Holy Spirit. Mostly everyone knows the ‘Holy Trinity’. Most people have heard of it and they know that God is the “Father”, Jesus is the “Son” of the Father, but many don’t know who is the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is God Himself! United they are not three, they are just one. The Holy Spirit is Jesus! Whenever we say Jesus we are saying Holy Spirit, whenever we say Holy Spirit we are saying God. They are all one.

Jesus said: …He who has seen Me has seen the Father…
John 14:9

When you see Jesus you see the Father, you see the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is not as complicated as people think. When we talk about receiving the Holy Spirit, people expect to see a ghost or to feel something entering their body like paranormality. The Holy Spirit is not the Spirit of a ghost but is God himself, and He wants to dwell inside of you. The disciples had the Holy Spirit by their side, yet whenever they faced troubles and tribulations, they feared. There was a time when Jesus was sleeping in the boat, and there was a raging storm, the disciples got scared and came running to Jesus for help. Jesus had to wake up and rebuke the wind and everything became calm. When you receive the Holy Spirit you don’t fear anything because you have Jesus inside of you and not by your side. 

We are in the 21 days ‘Fast of Daniel’ where in this fast we are seeking the Holy Spirit every single day. You can go into any Universal Church today and you will receive the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. He will guide you, He will advise you and He will bless you so that you don’t have to depend on nobody. You won’t be like a parasite that depends on others to feed itself, you will have your own roots rooted in the Kingdom of God. The ‘Fast of Daniel’ will end on June 9th where Bishops and Pastors will be broadcasting live all the way from the Cenacle of the Holy Spirit, it will be just like the day of Pentecost where the Holy Spirit will come down and baptize His people with the Holy Spirit.

May the God of the Bible bless all of you

Bishop Bira Fonseca
