THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
November 8, 1998
So you have been saved (born again) and you are happy that some day when you leave this earth, you will be taken to heaven by God's holy angels. In the meantime, you have to live on this earth with all its tribulations. What does the Bible tell us to do, while we are lingering on this planet?
John the Baptist told us that Jesus was baptizing with fire: Matt. 3:11 This had been prophesied 800 years before Christ - Joel 2:27-29. Before the cross Jesus spoke about it - John 7:37-39. After the resurrection Jesus stated what he was going to do - Acts 1:4-8 AND IT DID HAPPEN! Acts 2:14
Jesus had a five fold ministry!
WHAT ABOUT THE
CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST TODAY?
This spiritual authority was also given to the 70 others. Luke
CAN WE FIND THIS IN
THE BOOK OF ACTS? YES, INDEED!
ARE YOU FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT? DO YOU HAVE A FIVE FOLD MINISTRY LIKE JESUS AND THE APOSTLES HAD? Acts 19:1-7.
God is not a respecter of persons. What God does for one believer, he will do for us all. Acts 10:34; Romans 2:11
There is only one requirement from you, YOU MUST ASK IN THE NAME OF JESUS AND YOU MUST LOVE HIM AND YOU MUST ABIDE IN HIM! John 14:9-16; 15:1-5
IS THE PRICE TOO HIGH FOR YOU? Luke 9:23-26
