Sacrifice I

Acts 16:25-26 “Around midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and… Suddenly, there was a massive earthquake, and the prison was shaken to its foundations. All the doors immediately flew open, and the chains of every prisoner fell off!”

While the prison doors are removed from the body and have no contact with the body of the prisoners. The chains have direct contact with the hands and the legs (the body) of the prisoners. Read the rest of this entry

His Sound II

Acts 2:2 “Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven like the roaring of a mighty windstorm, and it filled the house where they were sitting.” (emphasis added)

Every great move of God is preceded by a sound. This season, you will hear both the sound of victory and the sound of freedom in Jesus Mighty Name. The first thing that births the sound of freedom is Praise and Prayer. Read the rest of this entry

His Sound I

Gen.1:1-3 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.” 

Yesterday, we shared the first of two things you need to know about the Holy Spirit. And that is that the Holy Spirit is a person. Did you talk to the Holy Spirit like we said? What questions did you ask Him and what was His response? Read the rest of this entry

He Not It

John 14:16-17 (AMP) “And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counsellor, Strengthener, Standby), to be with you forever—the Spirit of Truth… He (the Holy Spirit) remains with you continually and will be in you.”

Today, I am going to share two things about the Holy Spirit with you which you have to know. Obviously, there is so much to the Holy Spirit but these things you have to inculcate in your walk with God and it will change your life. Read the rest of this entry

The Advocate

Acts 2:2&4 “Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven like the roaring of a mighty windstorm, and it filled the house where they were sitting. 4 And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other languages, as the Holy Spirit gave them this ability.”

 

Please read Acts 2:1-4. The truth is, the Church cannot be the Church without the Holy Spirit. Without the Holy Spirit, we cannot function or be all that God has created us to be. We need the Holy Spirit. Read the rest of this entry

Q & A IX

Gen.18:17, 19-20 “Should I hide my plan from Abraham?” the Lord asked. I have singled him out so that he will direct his sons and their families to keep the way of the Lord by doing what is right and just. Then I will do for Abraham all that I have promised.” So the Lord told Abraham…

What was Abraham’s response when God told him what was about to happen to Sodom and to his nephew Lot? Abraham did not go to town with tomorrow’s news today. When God shares things with you it is privileged information. Read the rest of this entry

Q & A VIII

1 Cor.12:4-6 “There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all.  There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord. God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us.”

Question: At what point are these gifts deposited in the individual – before or after salvation, or during the baptism of the Holy Spirit, or are people born with it? Read the rest of this entry

Q & A VII

Eph.1:17 (TPT) “I pray that the Father of glory, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, would impart to you the riches of the Spirit of wisdom and the Spirit of revelation to know him through your deepening intimacy with him.”

Question: Is there a difference between this tongues Paul refers to in 1 Cor.14 and the tongues that is the prayer language? Read the rest of this entry

Guided?

1 Tim. 3:15 (NIV) “if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God’s household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth.”

The gifts of the Holy Spirit are to be used with diligence, cheerfulness, and faithfulness. Please read Rom.12:6-8; 1 Pet.4:10 -11. Spiritual gifts are to be used in an orderly and fitting way. Read the rest of this entry

The Intent

1 Cor.12:6-8 “God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us. A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other. To one person the Spirit gives the ability to give wise advice; to another the same Spirit gives a message of special knowledge”

The purpose of the gifts of the Holy Spirit is to bless God’s Church, God’s people. It is so that when we gather in fellowship, we can give an accurate Word. As you study the Bible together and share, someone is able to get direction because of the manifestation of the gift of Word of wisdom. Read the rest of this entry
