Eight different keys the Holy Spirit uses to communicate with us by Apostle Emmanuel Makarios.

Apostle Emmanuel Makarios,the Head Pastor of Christ Nation Embassy, Nigeria has given us eight different keys the Holy Spirit uses to communicate with us.
Read below:
1. The Inner Witness:
[Romans 8:16] The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God.
[Romans 9:1] I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost.
This is the number one way that the Holy Spirit will communicate to us in this life. The Holy Spirit will transmit the knowledge He wants you to have on something as a strong, inner knowing. When the Holy Spirit communicates something directly to you through this inner witness, it will be a knowing without any shadow of a doubt. When you receive one of these for the first time, you will know that it has come directly from the Holy Spirit due to the strength and conviction of it. After you start to receive these kinds of inner knowings from the Holy Spirit, you will soon learn how to discern when one is really coming in from Him, or when one is just coming in from your own natural imagination and emotions.
A true, inner witness from the Holy Spirit will come out of your spirit: it will not come out of your head, your imagination, or your emotions

2. The Word of God: Another way that the Holy Spirit will communicate knowledge to you is sometimes by giving you a direct verse from Scripture. All of a sudden, you will see a Scripture verse float up right in front of your mind’s eye.
And when you see this particular Scripture verse, you will see the meaning of the verse and how it will answer the particular problem or dilemma you may be dealing with.
The Bible is loaded with an unbelievable amount of spiritual truths, and many of these spiritual truths will be the answer to many of life’s problems that we will all encounter.
This is why it is so important for each and every Christian to spend as much quality time as they can in loading up their mind with the Word. If you do, then the Holy Spirit can bring back up to your remembrance certain Scripture verses when you may need them because you have already done your part by getting the Bible verses “in you.”

3. Leadings:
[Romans 8:14] For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
The Holy Spirit can also give you leadings on what to do and what not to do. When you get a real strong leading to do something specific, it will feel like God has His big hand on the small of your back pushing you forward. You will feel the wind at your back to move in that certain direction. You will feel or sense a very strong unction, a very strong prompting to move in that direction. However, if God does not want you to move in that certain direction, then you will feel or sense no leading at all from the Holy Spirit.

4. Quickenings: Another way Holy Spirit will use to communicate something to us is through an actual quickening. A quickening from the Holy Spirit is when He will “jump” something at you. For instance, if you are reading the Bible, you may find a verse or two that will jump off the pages at you and hit you right between the eyes.
Whenever the Holy Spirit quickens something like this to you, this means you are to grab a hold of it and examine it to see exactly what the message is that He is trying to convey to you. You can also have words from preachers jump at you. You could be driving down the road in your car listening to a pastor teach on the radio when all of a sudden something he says jumps right out at you through the radio.
And again, when this happens, this is the Holy Spirit’s way of bringing you knowledge He may want you to have on something specific.
Another area where this could occur at is at your local Christian bookstore. You will be in the bookstore browsing all of the books in there when all of a sudden a particular book will jump off the shelf at you.
When that happens, there is a very good chance that is the Holy Spirit quickening that particular book to you.

5. Visions:
[Joel 2:28-29] And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
You should notice that vision is directly connected to the Holy Spirit Himself.
There are two basic types of visions that you can receive from the Holy Spirit. One is called an open vision, and the other is closed vision. Open Vision is when you receive a vision with your eyes wide open. Many of these visions will be in actual 3-D and if God should allow it, you can actually be a part of that vision itself.
Closed Vision is when you receive a vision in your mind’s eye. Although closed vision does not seem to be as heavy or as dramatic as an open vision is, do not let that fool you. They are both visions and a closed vision is just as powerful and just as dramatic as an open vision is.
You will have to learn through a process of trial and error when a vision is coming in from your own natural imagination or when it is coming in direct from the Holy Spirit.

 What you don’t know is that your dog has just knocked them underneath your bed.
What you will have to learn on this is how to discern when a picture in your mind’s eye is really coming in from Him, or when it is coming in from your own natural imagination, since your own natural imagination has the power and the ability to draw up its own pictures in your mind’s eye.
One of the ways that you can tell when you are receiving a closed vision from the Holy Spirit is how it will come in on you. Many of the times these visions will come in out of the blue.
You may not really be thinking about anything specific or you are not using your own imagination to draw up any kind of picture’s in your mind’s eye. And then all of a sudden it will come in very quickly and very suddenly.

6. Dreams: The Holy Spirit can communicate something specific to you is through dreams.
In other words, you can receive a dream direct from the Holy Spirit. Another word for dreams is that they are “visions of the night.”
If God is giving you a dream direct from Himself, then there will be a personal message in there for you.
Your job will be to get it down on paper and carefully examine and analyze it for what that personal message may be.

7. Prophecies: The holy spirit can communicate again directly to you by prophecy. One of the nine (9) gifts from the Holy Spirit is the gift of prophecy.
The gift of prophecy is when you receive a direct word from the Lord. Every word that you receive in the prophecy will be direct words from the Lord.
