Author Jack Holmes has been following the leading of the Holy Spirit since his mid-20s. At age 92, that makes 6 ½ decades of living a Spirit-filled existence—a life he says he can't imagine others would do without.
That's especially true, Holmes says, in the chaotic world in which we live today.
"I am always praying that the Holy Spirit will help people to really see that is about Jesus today and that we are supposed to be doing what He did," Holmes told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. "The way He lived, that's how we are also supposed to live. Jesus must be our model.
"The Holy Spirit filled Him with His Father, and now the Holy Spirit will fill us both with the presence of the Father and the Son. That will help us battle the things that are going on in today's world.
"I think we're in the battle of the end of Revelation, and our government is so filled with demonic presence. ... But what do we have? We have Jesus, and He was a total manifestation of His Father. We're supposed to be doing the same thing today.
"If you look at the heart of the country, it needs to be changed. The Holy Spirit needs to be working through the churches. For 50 to 60 years, my prayer every day is that 'Lord, I'm on the cross with You today.' And being crucified with Jesus is probably one of the most important messages we need for people to be changed into the image of Jesus."
