Apostle Dr. Walker noted that the glory of the Holy Spirit is no different from that of the Father and Son and that every believer needs the Spirit of God to reside in him or her to make the right decisions in life.
“When the Spirit of God comes upon us, He does not just come for us to blow in tongues but leads us to be skillful in whatever field of work we do. It is the Holy Spirit who fills us with the ability to do,” he reiterated.
The PUC Rector further noted that the purpose of being baptized in the Holy Spirit is endow the believer with power and boldness. He said the baptism of the Holy Spirit also makes the believer an effective witness in proclaiming the gospel message of Christ, enhances their sensitivity to sin and increases their desire for righteousness.

“When we are filled with the Holy Spirit, we are able to live to the glory of God. And once you have the salvation of Christ, then the power of the Holy Spirit will be your portion, “he proclaimed.

This, he explained, signifies that the believer have been baptized, helps them to speak supernaturally to God, enables them to have a better relationship with the Holy Spirit and also it also edifies their Spirit.
“Speaking in tongues is not just the end. It is an initial sign of the baptism of the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit comes, we must not only speak in tongues but signs and wonders must follow us,“ he emphasized.
Concluding his message, Apostle Dr Daniel Otchere Walker admonished the youth to fully possess and rely onthe Holy Spirit fully for guidance especially when making important decisions in their academics, financial life, marital life and spiritual life.
