In today’s message Bro. Leo continues our study of God’s Holy Spirit by looking at the ministry of the Holy Spirit to each and every individual, the responsibility and accountability of each and every individual.
Bro. Leo covers these four points today:
1) How to receive direct divine revelation from God.
2) The direct revelation from God to an individual will be personal, specific and detailed.
3) An individuals ability and capability to receive direct revelation from God.
4) The individuals responsibility and accountability for seeking divine revelation from God.
