|New Life in Christ - New Walk in the Holy Spirit|
Monday, April 27, 2015
“God wants to save and heal,” said Pastor Allan as he began to minister. The hearts of the world are hardened by sin, and because of their hardness, often curses are passed down and carried to the next of their flesh. Many are bound because of being born into poverty, alcohol, drugs and perversion, as were some of you today.
However, God knew you even before you were born and has made a way for freedom. We are here today to reach out and receive all that God desires for us.
Earthly parents want the best for their children, and our heavenly Father has good plans for you.
In the beginning man was created for fellowship with God. Adam and Eve broke that fellowship. Through Jesus Christ provision for fellowship with God is restored by the Holy Spirit. Jesus was a Jew and all history was lined up to fulfill his coming and all that followed.
Some wonder who or what is the Holy Spirit? Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In the Father God’s plan, He sent Jesus to be the sacrificial Lamb. It is the Holy Spirit who enters our heart and releases us from sin. We can now fellowship with the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
Don’t be scared or afraid of the Holy Ghost, because it is through Him come miracles and healings. Holy Spirit You are Welcome in This Place.
Fire is associated with the Holy Spirit at Pentecost when those in the upper room were baptized. On earth, the Holy Spirit took over the ministry of Christ Jesus through believers. Peter quoted the Prophet saying, “Your sons and daughters shall prophesy and old men will dream and have visions.
John also prophesied, “I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
This Holy Spirit was promised by Jesus in Acts 1:8. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses
Pastor Allan stated that his vision for this church is to build up and ground individuals in both the Word and Holy Spirit to become an army ready to step out into our city and world. We must have the power of the Holy Spirit to fight the battles ahead.
Supernatural events should be happening everyday. All we need to do is walk uprightly and be obedient. The Holy Spirit reverses who you once were. You are not that same person who lied, cheated and did worse.
The mainline church today is not comfortable with the Holy Spirit. You have heard old time stories about a move of God and those “Holy Rollers.” We talk about the good old days, but we are now looking forward to something greater.
The flesh cannot inherit God’s way; we must be walking in the Spirit. The Word says we can judge by their fruit. Do they have love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control?
Babies may not have these attributes, but as we grow up in Christ we mature.
Always be sensitive to the Holy Spirit. He is a gentleman and is easily grieved. Be open to listen, receive and obey.
The Holy Spirit desires that we walk in revival every day of our lives. Revival is walking in the Spirit 24/7. The latter rain is coming. We already see just a sprinkle, but there will soon be a flood over this region.
Thank you Father God for the change you are making in lives today.
Thank you Jesus for your shed blood and your resurrection power.
Thank you Holy Spirit for the Boldness and direction you give as we walk 24/7 in your presence.
