The Holy Spirit is the ultimate personal Prophet-Pauline Adongo
changes in life structure require additional expertise or different approaches for
handling life issues. We are in an age of increased demand for life coaches,
psychologists and therapists. Many are seeking mentorship or marketing themselves as
mentors; all of these are prevalent in the church and in daily life. However; the most
experienced expert in life coaching and mentorship has been left out! This is the Holy
Spirit. THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE ULTIMATE PERSONAL PROPHET.
Though readily available to us, the Holy Spirit remains underutilized and has not been
maximized fully within the Body of Christ. Bear in mind that God still wants each
believer to see the unseen, hear the unheard, retrieve treasures and know the secrets
of God. All these can be achieved only by the Holy Spirit. So let’s tap on Him because:
PROXIMITY- The Holy Spirit is ever present in and with us. He is the “Omnipresent”
presence of God in us. When in need of counsel, we do not need to make a call or
schedule an appointment with Him. Since He is permanently close, living and working in
you, make a habit of consulting Him first on all issues. This is the “seeking ye first the
kingdom of God…”. Your personal Prophet is always with you.
ALL KNOWING -The Holy Spirit knows everything. If you recall, He is part of the Trinity.
As three in one in God, the Holy Spirt knows what is in God’s heart concerning you and
also knows your heart. Here are the advantages of this aspects of this mighty Prophet:
(1). He intercedes for us in the Spirit (ii) He relates with us in the Spirit aligning us to
the purposes of God, (iii)As the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit is the one who reveals the
secrets, mysteries and the treasures of God. Call to me and I will answer you and tell you
great and unsearchable things you do not know. Jeremiah 33.3. (iv) When prayer is led by
the Holy Spirit and when we pray and commune with the Holy Spirit, He will show us
the inner things of the Lord as designed by God for us. Also see
1 Corinthians 2: 9-12 NIV)- However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has
heard and what no human mind has conceived the things God has prepared for those who love
him these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things,
even the deep things of God. For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within
them? In the same way, no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. What we
have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may
Given that the Holy Spirit is all knowing and desires to do more and show us more;
welcome the fellowship of the Holy Spirit. Ask Him to show you to reveal and disclose
what you do not know. Learn how He talks or responds to you and be open to the
instructions and the answers He gives you. Yes, the Holy Spirit as a Prophet will not
withhold anything good from you. Caution! Be ready to handle the bad that He will
share also. Whenever the Holy Spirit exposes something bad is to create awareness,
bring us to repentance, it could be something He wants you to let go or pray about. All
of these are meant to mature or refine you. The Holy Spirit is not punitive.
understand what God has freely given us.
ASTUTE FORECAST- Since God sees the end from the beginning, this same Holy Spirit
is able to tell and show us current things and things to come. This is His other role as
the Prophet. Start asking the Holy Spirit for stuff you cannot understand or where you
need help in. He was assigned to provide us as counsel and to help us. That is why we
embrace Him as the Spirit of Counsel in Isaiah 11.2. In addition to counsel, the
following are just as necessary for our daily walk: The Spirit of the Lord, the Spirit of
wisdom, The Spirit of understanding, the Spirit of power (might), the Spirit of the
knowledge(discernment) and the Spirit of the fear of the Lord
It’s all in the asking. Ask and you shall receive. As your daily permanent Prophet, ask
the God to fill with the above daily. You will be amazed at the mentorship of the Holy
PRAYER- Interestingly, prayer is an area most people are not comfortable with or
dedicated to on a regular basis. Sadly, some people have come to restrict prayers and
have limited it to “they can only be prayed for by certain people, namely spiritual
leaders, some have their own prophets on speed-dial whom they call at liberty or during
life emergencies; all while failing to recognize the Mighty Intercessor that is within them
who is the Holy Spirit. How about we call Him “Holy Spirit, our Personal Prayer
Prophet.” The Holy Spirit is also your personal Prophet in intercession, see (Romans
In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray
In order to benefit from this role of the Holy Spirit, He can only intercede through you
during prayer. So pray more in the Holy Spirit and allow Him to flow freely during
prayer. Praying in the Holy Spirit means pray in the language of the Spirit, commonly
known us prayer language or speaking in tongues.
Personally, I have learned to invite the Holy Spirit to guide me or take over prayer when
I start prayer. I simply say “Holy Spirit take over this prayer”. If praying for something
specific, I say,” Holy Spirit we are praying for this (name the issue). When you when
you invite the Holy Spirit to guide you in prayer and to pray with you, He not only prays
in groaning for you but the Holy Spirit also connects your spirit to God’s Spirit in prayer.
When this happens the prayer becomes synchronized to God’s will purpose for you. 1
The prophetic aspect of the Holy Spirit during prayers also occurs when the Holy Spirit
prophesies, shows you or tells you somethings during prayer. This is how the prophetic
aspect of the Holy Spirit functions with you while alone in prayer. When this happens
write down what you see or hear during prayer. Habitually place a note pad and pen
next to you during prayer. Record the prophesies and any other instructions from the
Holy Spirit. If you need clarification, ask the Holy Spirit. He will direct you. If you cannot
find someone to intercede or “agree” with you in prayer, tap on the Holy Spirit your
ever present prayer partner.
for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans
Purpose to make the Holy Spirit your first point of contact on every issue. By doing this,
you would be seeking God’s kingdom first that all may be added to you. Seeking the
Holy Spirit also limits the tendencies to depend on man or things for solutions. This
makes us look up to and trust in God. This also helps us abstain from idolatry. Idolatry
in this context would be any person or thing that we highly value and trust more than
Granted, relying on the Holy Spirit does not negate seeking other prophesy such as
from those with prophetic gifts or those in the office of the prophet. I’m just
encouraging you to also recognize that you have Someone so close to you that you
need to know and start utilizing more of; the Holy Spirit. He is relatable and personal.
He will guide you in all truth, from where you need your nails manicured, to how to
prepare for a job interview, to the house you need to buy.
Get to know your personal Prophet. Learn to know how He speaks to you. He has been
talking. Get acquainted with the Holy Spirit because we are in the season of the
outpour of the Holy Spirit as promised in Acts 2:17. This is happening now as we speak!
Your Personal Prophet is right there in and with you ready to do more in you, for you
and with you!
