dispel all of the ideas that people have come up with concerning the purpose and the function of the Holy Spirit the purpose of the functional Holy Spirit is not the jerk gigolos speak in tongues absolutely we share with you what two weeks ago about how the Holy Spirit

is evidenced by speaking in tongues but I'm saying that the purpose of the Holy Spirit is big and we got to quit trying to pick just these these things these areas out that define him he has come to do a job in you and in me and he

has come for a specific purpose and he has come for a specific reason and we need to know what that reason and purpose is now all the things we talk about that's great man if you feel some chills you know go with it you know if you feel

like you want to run around the dome good look I'm just saying that we need to understand with precision what has he come to do and that's what I want to want to deal with the night now of course he's come to help us to live our Christian

lives this is gonna be pretty fascinating as far as I'm concerned so the Holy Spirit's come to tell you and me everything we need to know to walk in the fullness of God's plan for our lives he will assist you in discovering the plan for your life he

will assist you in discovering the will of God for your life he will assist you in discovering the path that you're supposed to take in your life everybody in here has a plan and a purpose and a will of God for your life everybody the biggest thing in

life is discovering it so you don't a lot of your life going on you know around in circles not knowing what's my purpose why am I here what am I supposed to be doing so on start off in second Corinthians and let's look at first Corinthians scuse me

first Corinthians chapter 2 and verse 9 I don't want to spend a lot on the lanta foundation tonight I need to get into this real quick first Corinthians chapter 2 and verse 9 I'm gonna read out of the King James and then the Amplified Bible first Corinthians chapter

2 and verse 9 he says but as it is written eye hath not seen nor ear heard neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love him verse 10 but God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit for

the spirit searches all things of God yay the deep things of God now let's put these two scriptures together he says I had seen ear hadn't heard go back verse 9 that your heart hadn't begin to perceive anything but but God I it is written eye has not

seen ear has not has not heard neither have entered into your to the heart of man it has not come to you you you can't see it you can't hear it it hadn't entered into your heart what hadn't entered into your heart the things which God has prepared

for you you who love him there are some things that God has prepared for you who love him that you can't see it now you can't hear it now it hadn't even entered into your heart first ten No what's this but God has revealed them to us by

his Spirit so by the Holy Ghost you can expect revelation knowledge concerning what you can't see what you can't hear and what has not you entered it into your heart concerning the things that God has prepared for you and he said it is going to be revealed to

you so the things you don't know yet will be revealed to you it is going to be revealed to you the plan of God for your life is going to be revealed to you your purpose for your life is going to be revealed to you you're gonna find

that the battle gets a it's not it's not that you know you're not gonna have any more trouble once God reveals your plan but it's gonna be a whole lot easier knowing you're going the right way alright instead of every time something happens you like I wonder if

I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing in the first place once that's settled it's just it's just a fight that you win every time if the devil come in your path you like I know I'm supposed to go here you and my way I'm going to run

you over okay but here's the thing I want to see but God has revealed them unto us by spirit so by the Holy Spirit you can expect Revelation by the Holy Spirit you can expect revelation for the spirit searches all things of God so the Holy Spirit that

you have the day you got born again lives on the inside of you to reveal those things that God has planned for you so the day you got saved the Holy Spirit moved in Romans five and five he poured the love of God into your heart first thing

and he is there to reveal to you what you're supposed to be doing if you understand that same n now remember that because we're gonna come back to that and just show you some things now look at this in the amplified real quick first Corinthians chapter 2 9

and 10 in the amplified and then I'll go to Matthew chapter 16 and 13 the amplified says but on the contrary as the scripture says what I has not seen and and ear has not heard and has has not entered into the heart of man all that God

has prepared made and keeps ready he prepared some things for you he made some things for you and he's keeping it ready just like your mama keep your dinner ready he's keeping it ready for you so I don't know what you might be doing that's causing you not

to get what you need to be but he says I'll keep it ready for you all right now watch this I'll keep it ready for those who love Him who hold to him in affectionate reverence promptly obeying him and gratefully recognizing the benefits he has bestowed upon him

what is he saying here I'm holding it for those who have a relationship with me because all that comes as a result of a relationship with God it's just not playing church if you have a real relationship with him when you're not here you have a relationship with

him you talk to him when you're home you talked to him in your car you know him and he knows you you have a real relationship with him he ain't playing on Church you just you don't have you don't know God you know because you're scared you're gonna

go to hell you really really have a relationship with him and then in verse 10 he says yet to us God has unveiled and revealed them by and through the Holy Spirit through the Spirit the Holy Spirit who searches diligently in exploring and examining everything even sounding the

profound he'll start sounding the profound and the bottomless things of God the divine councils and the things hidden and beyond man's scrutiny he says the Holy Ghost living in you knows everything that needs to be known and you walking around with it you're walking around with the Holy

Spirit who knows all things including what you're supposed to be doing alright now let's look at Matthew chapter 16 Matthew chapter 16 and let's start at verse 13 Matthew 16 and 13 now so revelation knowledge is the objective of the Holy Spirit to reveal some things to you

let me show you how revelation knowledge works let me show you the ultimate revelation that is going to come to you so here's the situation here when jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi by he asked his disciples saying whom do men say that I the Son

of Man am that's the question verse 14 and they said some say thou art John the Baptist some Elias and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets that's how they responded 15 he said unto them but whom say ye that I am talking to his disciples who do

you say that I am I now watch carefully then Simon Peter answered and said so the question was who the men say damned who do you say I am so Simon Peters getting ready to answer the question who do you say I am he said thou art the

Christ now Christ is not Jesus's last name Christ is it means The Anointed One so when he said thou art the Christ he says thou art the anointed one the Son of the Living God not everybody knew that thou art the anointed one the Son of the Living

God I know what's this verse 17 and jesus answered I hold on I don't recall Peter asking go back to verse 16 I want to show you something here Simon Peter answered we know what the question was who do you say that I am he answered thou art

the Christ the Son of the Living God verse 17 and jesus answered we gotta back up see what what was Jesus responding to he answered and said unto him blessed thou Simon bar Jonah for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee but my father which is

in heaven to rebuild it over thee now here's what I believe happened Jesus says who do you say that I am Simon opens mouth Papa said you're the northern one the son of the Living God mmm what just happened what did I just say because he didn't say

that out of his intellect he didn't say that out of his mind he didn't say that out of learned knowledge that did not come out of his mouth because of his studies of Sunday School quarterly he it was revealed to him have you ever had something to go

past your mind and you said something great and said know where that came from but and jesus answered and said unto him so he's answering him he's telling what happened he says you are blessed now simon barjona is a hebrew way of saying son of Jonah so his

his name was Simon son of Jonah and I'll show you why we call him Peter his name was Simon son of Jonah he said flesh and blood you'll min your mental capacity what you learned in school it didn't reveal it unto you that that this was the Anointed

One the Son of the Living God he says this information came from heaven this information came from heaven now I'm telling you right now some of you are gonna get some information that came from heaven it's gonna be stuff revealed to you that you didn't know in the

world you you would have been able to know all right now watch this verse 18 and I also say unto thee that thou art Peter now Peter here was not his name Peter here was he was describing him as a fragment of rock I believe the Greek translation

is Petros awesome he said thou art a piece of the rock so he uses the word Peter which in original language is translated a fragment of rock and he says thou art Peter now and upon this rock I will build my church let's back up and translate he

is saying you are now more solid and sound because of the revelation of who I am the rock is referring to a revelation of Jesus so he says to Simon you are now solid because you have a revelation of Jesus oh my god something happens when you get

a revelation of Jesus he says and upon this revelation of Jesus I will build my church I'm gonna build my church on a revelation of Jesus I'm not gonna build my church on you know self-help books I'm not gonna build my church on you know life coaches I'm

not gonna build my church on nothing else but this revelation of Jesus you now see me as I am a lot of people were around Jesus but they didn't know him they didn't have revelation of who Jesus was alright now watch this and he says people who have

a revelation of Jesus the gates of hell shall not prevail against the revelation of Jesus when you can see Jesus and have a revelation of Jesus all of the junk that comes your way won't work now that goes back I hadn't seen here hadn't heard it had enter

into your heart you know what he's talking about now he's talking about a revelation of Jesus they were not able to see Jesus they were not able to hear no revelation of Jesus he says but with a revelation of Jesus the gates of hell shall not prevail against

him now look at verse 19 and with the revelation of Jesus he says I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven so what comes

with a revelation of Jesus authority I know who Jesus is so i bind this in the name of Jesus and I lose this in the name of Jesus watch this cause I can see who he is and thus I'll see who I am so it won't cause me

to get beat up all the time cuz I can see some stuff and I can hear some stuff and I know some things now there's everybody follow me here and in verse 20 he goes on and he says he charged his disciples that they should tell no man

that he was Jesus The Anointed One now how does this fit with what the Holy Spirit the Holy Spirit's referee you know it was it was the Father in Heaven that revealed to Simon who Jesus was he had revelation of who Jesus was the whole New Testament is

about this revelation of who Jesus was and the Holy Spirit has been sent to escort us into this revelation of Jesus now what's the problem the problem is a lot of us cannot see Jesus because we have a veil of condemnation over our lives can I talk to

you now when you're full of shame and guilt in condemnation it's hard for you to see Jesus because you you're trying to get over the stuff that you you're trying to get over all that other stuff you your eminence scripture talks about the blood of Jesus has come

to set us free from dead works so we can serve the Living God you know what you do when you don't see Jesus you you serve dead works you constantly try to do something to deserve something most of Christianity is about I need to do something to deserve

God's love I need to do something to deserve God's blessings I need to do something to deserve God's favor and the Holy Spirit has been sent to give you a revelation of Jesus and his finished works so you can be free from condemnation so you can be free

from dead works so you can be free from the shame now I want to I'm gonna dig in that a little bit and I want to relate to you because sometimes you don't understand the stuff that's keeping you back the shameful act that you might've did 20 years

ago it keeps coming up the condemnation that you just beat yourself up to condemn something's like somebody condemns a building you think it can't be used anymore you for some reason you don't think you're useful why don't you think you're useful because you don't have a right you

can't see Jesus you can't see who he really is he's not just some dude in a painting with curly hair he's the guy that came paid the price so you can be set free from the condemnation and the shame if you could see the guilt that's in this

room tonight and it's not many of us here tonight but but guilt dams and blocks what Jesus has prepared for you you can't hardly do what he's trying to get you to do because you're always dealing with the condemnation you're always dealing with the guilt the shame I

mean you feel good if you can just go to bed without having to deal with a shameful act and these are things that we need to start talking about in church because it's like most people are coming to church is try to just feel better and I'm telling

you you have the Holy Spirit and if you can see the day you get a revelation of Jesus and his finished works condemnation shame and guilt will just float right out of your life and even if you do something stupid after that you're gonna say I'm still the

righteousness of God and gonna keep on doing what you got to do but what in your life is causing you the guilt what in your life that causes shame shame and guilt are a little different you might be guilty for what you do but shame tells you that's

what you are change says you're no good saying shame talks about who you are it shame attacks your identity let's look at one more scripture before I dig into this looks like you're digging in and already yeah we're gonna dig in this look at Galatians chapter 1 verse

11 and 12 the Apostle Paul said something here Galatians 1 11 and 12 now here's a man who was a murderer Paul he reap havoc in the church he just started stuff and he thought he was doing the right thing the reason why he thought he was doing

the right thing because you know he served the law and you know when you didn't do right you should be punished you should be killed you should be stoned he's just doing what the law said but then on the road to Damascus he got a revelation of Jesus

and all of that changed I now watch this he said but I certify you brethren that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man verse 12 for I neither received it of man neither was I taught it but by revelation of Jesus Christ so Paul

see what I'm preaching about this grace no man gave this to me this is a revelation of Jesus it's not just a revelation from Jesus the gospel of grace is a revelation of Jesus the gospel of grace is the good news about the unveiling of who Jesus is

grace is not a subject grace is not a curriculum grace is a person the day the Holy Spirit can reveal Jesus to you condemnation fear guilt shame has to cease because you can see Jesus so the Holy Spirit has a specific purpose here listen to me carefully when

Jesus ascended the Holy Spirit and one of his major works in our lives is to remove the veil that once obstructed our view so our eyes can see so our ears can hear so our hearts can fully comprehend the specific special plans that God has meticulously prepared for

each of us Jesus the sins the Holy Spirit comes down his number one work is to remove the veil now I've been in church awhile and I hear people talking my devale I don't know they tell me Jesus was raised from the dead he rent the veil in

two I thought was he is a cloth that he rent what's the veil I want to give you a definition of the veil issue and then from this point on tonight we're gonna start referring to it in its simplest form so in context what is the veil today

it is condemnation that comes from the law that says they don't measure up to the standard they are deserving of punishment and they are deserving of a cursed life they don't measure up to the standard they are deserving of punishment they are deserving of a cursed life and

one word what is all that condemnation its condemnation so the Holy Spirit has come to remove condemnation he has come to let you know that you deserve what Jesus has done for you that you're no longer cursed that you are blessed and that you have a purpose and

a will for your life so the Holy Spirit's job is if I'm gonna get you to that plan for your life I gotta get you to see Jesus so you can be delivered from the veil from the condemnation from the guilt and from the shame the Holy Spirit

is working in you right now and everything you feel guilty and shameful about Jesus has paid a price and when you can see Jesus clearly you'll see he's taking care of that through his blood he's dealt with that through his blood that's been washed away through his blood

you keep holding on the stuff that Jesus has already taken care of so whatever stupid thing you've done it has been forgiven it has been taken care of he's working in you right now to cause you to lose the taste for it are you tired of going through
