The Governor is a much needed person in our lives. This is why, before King Jesus returned to His Father, He made this statement to His disciples: And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” Acts 1:4-5
Our Governor—the Holy Spirit—is the most vital person on this planet. It is because of Him that we are able to live in God’s Kingdom here in this world. Every Kingdom citizen must have the Governor indwelling inside of them. That is our passport into His Kingdom. Read what ambassador Paul stated to the Thessalonians. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17
Yes, the same Spirit that raised King Jesus from the dead lives in you! He dwells in you as your Governor, your Helper, your Advocate, your Teacher and your Guide. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God. But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. Romans 8:8-11
Also, it is through the Holy Spirit that we are no longer slaves to sin and the world, but children of God, joint heirs with Jesus. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. Romans 8:14-17 King Jesus made this statement, referring to the Holy Spirit. leading up to His transfiguration: Jesus went on to say, “I tell you the truth, some standing here right now will not die before they see the Kingdom of God arrive in great power!” Mark 9:1
While King Jesus was here on earth, He fulfilled His purpose and assignment. Now, having stated that, the Kingdom of the Lord God is within you when the Holy Spirit—our Kingdom Governor—is living within you. When the Governor is taking up residence within you, the Kingdom of Heaven is present on earth. But we must listen and be led by His Spirit. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you. John 16:13-15
According to Dr. Luke’s account in Acts, about one hundred and twenty disciples were present when the Holy Spirit was poured out and fully reinstated on this earth. Please note, King Jesus’ purpose was to reintroduce the King’s heavenly government that had been recalled from earth by mankind’s disobedience and rebellion against the Lord God’s command.
After our Lord and King, Jesus, completed His mission here on earth, He provided a way for the inhabitants to be in right standing again. Then He returned to His heavenly Kingdom. So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. Mark 16:19
After He went back to His Father, then He asked His Father to send the Governor to earth to assist those who believe in Him as Lord and King. And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. John 14:16-17a NLT
Yes, the Holy Spirit—our Governor—is the most vital person on this earth. It is only through Him that we are able to live a Kingdom life. When we allow Him to govern and guide us from within, there is no need for doctrinal bylaws and regulations to control us from the outside.
Everywhere we go, the Kingdom is there!
Remember, your greatest asset is your faith in the King’s Word.
