PROCLAIMING THE EMPOWERMENT of THE HOLY SPIRIT

real

Romans 5:6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly…. 8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
.
But Jesus Christ did much more than that for you and me now.. He left us His Holy Spirit empowerment so we can live fully the Christian life and not rather be always defeated by the devil!
.
1 John 3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. 2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, …we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
.
2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Romans 8:11 11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
.
(1 John 3:21 KJV) 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: 2 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.;
.
Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
.
The Christian life is  personally impossible,   it is impossible without the Holy Spirit –on our own. Trying to live the Christian life by your own efforts is like a ship trying to sail on dry land…;
.
John 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
.

John 16:7 “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.”

.

“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you” (Acts 1:8).

.

Though all Christians are indwelt by the Holy Spirit, not all Christians are filled (directed and empowered) by the Holy Spirit and why is that? Well mainly it is their ignorance of the New Testament  teaching still…It is the Holy Spirit who renews, transforms, redeems  our perceptions, beliefs, emotions, and physical bodies and who gives us the wisdom, discernments, insights. as “I have been crucified with Christ: and I myself no longer live, but Christ lives in me. And the real life I now have within this body is a result of my trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20).;   Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John: 15    Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:16    (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)17    Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost. Acts 8:14 -17  

.

All believers are indwelled by the Holy Spirit; however, not all believers are firstly now “filled” with the Spirit and His power, otherwise God would not have to command us to be. The lack of spiritual power is all too evident among believers. Being filled with the Holy Spirit is Not an option. If you have already received Christ, in Ephesians 5:18 God commands all believers to be filled with the Spirit; therefore, we know it is God’s will for everyone. Again it is really a command from God and really not an option.

.

The Holy Spirit is real and he can be real to you too.. Jesus Christ himself also was baptized with the Holy Spirit. The “baptism of the Holy Spirit” is given to those persons who obey God, follow after and do his will.. it requires our initial personal involvement, willingness, obedience. The “baptism of the Holy Spirit” involves being covered with, immersed in, empowered by the Holy Spirit. Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a term used to describe a movement of the Spirit upon and/or within a believer usually at salvation but often after the person is saved. Actually it is likely that many people accept Jesus Christ intellectual but do take some time to make him fully the personal lord of their life next. We should be careful to not confuse Baptism in the Holy Spirit with the various other ministries of the Holy Spirit.
.
The filling of the Holy Spirit is how He empowers and controls us (Acts 4:31; Ephesians 5:18). The indwelling of the Holy Spirit is God the Holy Spirit taking up permanent residence in our lives (John 14:17; Romans 8:9-11; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:19; 1 John 4:4). The sealing of the Holy Spirit is God marking us as His permanent possession (Ephesians 1:13-14). Baptism in the Holy Spirit is related to these other ministries of the Holy Spirit, but at the same time, it is separate from them. Have you been Baptized with the Holy Spirit? If you’ve repented of your sins and asked Christ to be your Lord and Master, then He responds with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, and the gifts of the Holy Spirit; “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water (hudati), but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit (en pneumati hagio)…. But you will receive power (dunamis) when the Holy Spirit comes on (epiechomai) you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:4, 5, 8; see 11:15-16);
.
And there are several Scriptural steps are most certainly initially involved.
.
1:  In preparation for The Filling of the Spirit, Confess known sin and seek and receive forgiveness for all sin even by reliance on the  related completed work of Jesus Christ on the cross for our sins. The Scriptures teach that God works in those who lead a humble, broken, contrite heart.
.
2 In further preparation for The Filling of the Spirit, one must become a confessed believer in Jesus Christ as Son of God who has made the full payment for our sins. Without this act, an acclamation of faith, one cannot be filled with the Holy Spirit, for biblically, the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God and of Christ.
.
Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.  Matthew 10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. 33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
.
3: Read examples of people being filled with the Holy Spirit in the new Testament. Such as Acts2:4, Acts10:44-46 and Acts19:1-6  – Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
.
4: Pray for,  Desire, seek  to be fully controlled by the Holy Spirit, to be under the full influence of the Spirit or to be constantly led by God..  Personally Claim the promises of God that he will reveal himself and fill you  with the Holy Spirit. .John 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. Acts 17:27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.  Luke 11:13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? 
.

By faith claim the fullness of the Holy Spirit, according to: God’s command  Be filled with the Spirit. “And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians  and His Promise – He will always answer when we pray according to His will. “And this is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked of Him” (1 John 5:14, 15)

.

Pray “Dear Father, I admit I am a sinner, I do need You. I acknowledge that I have been directing my own life and that, as a result, I have sinned against You. I thank You that You have forgiven my sins through Christ’s death on the cross for me. I now invite Christ to again take His place on the throne of my life. Fill me with the Holy Spirit as You commanded me to be filled, and as You promised in Your Word that You would do if I asked in faith. I now thank You for directing my life and for filling me with the Holy Spirit.

.

Next your life will demonstrate more and more of the anointing of of the Holy  Spirit ( acts 10:38)   and you will reflect, be more and more conformed to the image of Christ (Romans 12:2; 2 Corinthians 3:18). Your prayer life and study of God’s Word will become more meaningful. You will experience His power in witnessing (Acts 1:8). You will be prepared for spiritual conflict against the world (1 John 2:15-17); against the flesh (Galatians 5:16-17); and against Satan (1 Peter 5:7-9; Ephesians 6:10-13). You will experience His power to resist temptation and sin (1 Corinthians 10:13; Philippians 4:13; Ephesians 1:19-23; 2 Timothy 1:7; Romans 6:1-16).;

.

Why aren’t more Christians filled with the Spirit?
.
Simply because of unsubmitted, un confessed  sin. We choose to disobey god. This can take the form of pride: doing and wanting things our way. Living a self centered life, and We don’t give God control of our finances; we’ve worked hard for our money and it’s ours now. We don’t give God control of our relationships, associates, choices too;. We don’t give God control of our personal morality; that’s nobody’s business but our own—not even God’s. (Proverbs 3:34).  [God] mocks proud mockers but gives grace to the humble”  Proverbs 29:  23    A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.24    Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul: he heareth cursing, and bewrayeth it not. 25    The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe. 26    Many seek the ruler’s favour; but every man’s judgment cometh from the LORD. 27    An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked. Or the “Fear of man will prove to be our  snare…” (Proverbs 29:25). Is there something that God wants you to do, but you haven’t done it because you’re afraid of what people will think?
BEING RELIGIOUS AND/OR KNOWING THE BIBLE IS NOT THE SAME AS KNOWING PERSONALLY GOD, JESUS CHRIST, THE HOLY SPIRIT.. GOD, JESUS CHRIST, THE HOLY SPIRIT;
.
God the father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit are all alive, real, individuals who care about you personaly too and desire now to fellowship with you too if you do now meet their requirements, conditions as stated in the New Testament. Or are you falsely still relying in your own flesh in following Jesus Christ, God, the Holy Spirit? … Did you know that the Bible teaches us that human nature will always deny Jesus Christ. We all first must come personally to Jesus Christ in order to receive the baptism of Holy Spirit as well.. Now without the Holy Spirit of Jesus in ypour life, heart, you can only know, experience, darkness, demons and not God.
.
Our boldness comes from being with Jesus, the Holy Spirit and our knowledge, application of God’s word. We can’t change one thing about ourselves or others without the SPIRIT of GOD.
.
(Luke 4:1 KJV) And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,;
.
Now still there are much too many imposter, pretenders, non Christians. Thus we all do still do need to know as to what is a real Christian?
.
There is major ,major misunderstanding even in the church as to what it really means to be a Christian. We need to look at what the Bible itself says here firstly too.. To be a Christian is based on the Greek word anointed one, Christos, a person in whom we can see the anointing of the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ.. do we see yours easily? or do you like bullying others too much still? doing your own thing? (Acts 10:38 KJV) How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.;  The word “Christ” is a transliteration of the Greek word christos, meaning “the Anointed One, Jesus was the anointed one. Jesus is the Messiah and the transliteration of the Old Testament Hebrew word pronounced maw-shakh, meaning Anointed One, which when translated into the New Testament Greek is Christos. Jesus was the anointed one. Jesus is the Messiah and  the transliteration of the Old Testament Hebrew word pronounced maw-shakh, meaning Anointed One, which when translated into the New Testament Greek is Christos. Matt. 3:11, “As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”;
.
Generally non-believers, non Christians  are clearly still  totally ignorant the work of the Holy Spirit. One clear way to see if a person is a real Christians is to see if they know about the Holy Sp[irit personal, talk and preach about him as well.   (Rom 8:14 KJV) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.;( Luke 12:10 KJV) And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.; Apostle Peter next told all of his  convicted hearers, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit”. Beyond the show of a doubt the devil himself firstly really hates any references to the Holy Spirit, the anointed ones, the idea that Christians do have now empowering to overcome the devil too…and so now the devil even  uses any of his followers, even those in the fundamental religious circles too now, to now lie, twist, distort the truths about God, Jesus, The Holy Spirit, the Bible too.;
.
Many professing Christians are still not real Christians now, these days too, because Most people have never even firstly had studied, read what the Bible actually says nor have they been taught by the Holy Spirit firstly, not even many preachers.
.
The  baptism of the Holy Spirit, the gifts of the Holy spirit, the Anointing , Tongues, Prophets, Apostles, Miracle workers, tithing   have become unarguably the most neglected,  misunderstood, misinterpreted, contentious terms in the news media, in the non Pentecostal and in the Non Charismatic arenas, especially in the fundamental evangelical religious circles and now all even because many of these people are mostly still serving self, doing their own thing, looking up to mere man and not unto God;   As they clearly do not have God’s understanding of these subjects cause they do not have the Holy Spirit.. so they are none of His for a start, they have let unrepentant sin continue in their lives still too. It’s the frequent and methodical strategy of those people not Holy spirit filled, those carnal, people walking in the flesh that they do bash, recite against anyone who has evidenced the Holy Spirit anointing still too, but we all can still see these false professors own false, unscriptural doctrine and practice for what it is , demonic. It’s now is also a charge of their “blasphemy of the Holy Spirit” and their disobedience of “touch not the Lord’s anointed.” Unlike the fundamental evangelicals Christians  the Pentecostal Christians  tend to rightfully  believe that one’s Salvation by Jesus Christ is still  a continuing process.  Very few would say that you are eternally saved after you receive Jesus.
.
While   a person is “Saved” upon confessing one’s sin. accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and  the infilling of the Holy Ghost as  evidenced by speaking in other tongues, that person will still really not go further in the Kingdom of God now unless they do also sow good things, apply the Word of God to their own lives, continue to pray, and to apply holiness to their daily lives, and continually, daily learn to live after Jesus. In other words, if all you do is get saved, baptized and filled with the Holy Ghost, but don’t live a real Godly, holy Spirit filled separated life, then your salvation becomes definitely become world, satanic, sinful,  stagnant, and unless you do something to fix that stagnation, you are very  likely to backslide, or walk away from God and end up in hell. You always have a free will, It is your choice, you reap what you sow.
.
So Keeping your Salvation means walking with  God, talking to him, knowing and following solely after His will,  being continually filled by the Holy Spirit and this in prayer, thus living righteously by  and   living  a separated life form the ungodly world, persons. If you do not know the Holy Spirit at all it is for sure you are not a real Christian. The anointing is sacred, the anointing is the Holy Spirit, and all believers in Christ must have the anointing of the Holy Spirit. We here must be careful what we say about our anointed  brothers and sisters in Christ.;
.
(1 Chronicles 16:22-24 NKJV) Saying, “Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm.” {23} Sing to the LORD, all the earth; Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day. {24} Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.”;
.
(1 Corinthians 3:1-3).  “A natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised” (1 Corinthians 2:14). But “He who is spiritual appraises all things…We have the mind of Christ”  (1 Corinthians 2:15).;
.
Beyond the show of a doubt the devil himself firstly really hates any references to the Holy Spirit, the anointed ones, the idea that Christians do have now empowering to overcome the devil too… and so now the devil uses any of his followers, those in the fundamental religious circles too now, to now lie, twist, distort the Bible truths.   Time also more Christians read their Bible instead of the fictional books, bad commentaries now too. Really! So they will not end up falsely Denying the present role, works of the Holy Spirit, and see the need for their own tangible good works by faith, and deal with their still too often unloving acts towards the others.
.
Matthew 10”22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
.
Jesus did not say you as a real partnering Christian might be, could be hated, he said you will be hated.. especially by both the Jews, and the Unrepentant sinners;
.
But the still Carnal Christians still cannot experience the Abundant and Fruitful Christian Life  Carnal Man (One who has received Christ, but who lives in defeat because he is trying to live the Christian life in his own strength. “And I brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to carnal men, as to babes in Christ. I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able, for you are still carnal. For since there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not fleshy, and are you not walking like mere men?”;
.

Also “I believe that one of the biggest reasons that the body of Christ hasn’t made a greater impact on our generation today is because of our failure to operate in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Without a doubt, Jesus and the first apostles used the gifts like a bell, calling men to their message and confirming that God was truly the One speaking through them”. Andrew Wommack

.

Hebrews 2:3-4 says, “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?” The Lord bore witness to the accuracy of their message through miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit.

.

In Mark 16:17-18, Jesus said all true believers would flow in the miraculous: “And these signs will follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”

.

The vast majority of preaching  and Christian living done in the name of the Lord today is still really without the power of the Holy Spirit manifest through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. This was,  is not the way the Lord Jesus Christ had intended it to be.for sure..No one can have an effective life or ministry without the power of God’s Holy Spirit working in him or her. This fact can’t be argued by anyone who truly believes the Bible is God’s Word. The Scriptures are replete with proof that it is “not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the LORD of hosts” (Zech. 4:6). It is  true that the Holy Spirit is still willing to move as in biblical times  then there is no excuse for living lives so far removed from that great  victory portrayed in God’s Word.

.

If a Christian’s life isn’t full of the personal supernatural, it’s a pretentious one rather. Now  the gifts of the Holy Spirit are always flowing.as  God doesn’t turn them “on” and “off.” We are the ones who turn them  “on” or “off.”   The Lord Jesus Christ  is always ready to flow through us in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. No one has received everything that the Holy Spirit has for them. Therefore, the Lord is always seeking to release more to us through His supernatural gifts. Whenever we put ourselves in a mode to be His channel, His gifts will flow

.

Most  churches have fallen away from ministering in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The gifts that operate even in in most “Spirit-filled” churches are simply words of exhortation or prophecy. There is much more even here . that should be manifested.

.

1 Corinthians 12:31, “But covet earnestly the best gifts.”

.

1 Corinthians 14:1, “Desire spiritual gifts.”

.

 You do also still  have to seek these gifts with all your heart (Jer. 29:13).  Thhs that  also includes the nine Gifts of the Holy Spirit and  the Spirit of Truth, Holiness, Wisdom, of the Fear of the Lord, of Counsel, Spirit of Grace and the Spirit of Knowledge. 

.

There are nine Gifts of the Holy Spirit. “For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing(s) by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:” (1Corinthians 12:8-10)

.

There are still nine Gifts of the Holy Spirit today even.  So seek after and learn to sue them all, The nine Gifts are often separated into three groups.

.

The first group is commonly referred to as the Power Gifts.  They are called the Power Gifts because they DO something.  They are:  The Gift of Faith, the Gifts of Healings and the Working of Miracles.

.

The second group is commonly referred to as the Revelation Gifts.  These are Gifts that REVEAL something.  They are:  The Word of Wisdom, the Word of Knowledge and the Discerning of Spirits.

.

The third group is commonly referred to as the Utterance Gifts.  This is because they SAY something.  They are:  The Gift of Prophecy, the Gift of Tongues and the Gift of Interpretation of Tongues.

.

Of course you can expect the devil and his followers to try to mislead you, distract you, turn you away from your seeking.. just perish on forward in it.The truth is that denial of the Holy Spirit’s  ministry and power of the Holy Spirit is the devil’s  theology along with his other lies now too such as that alcoholics are not responsible for their actions, depression is a chemical imbalance, and homosexuality is genetic.

.

No true Christian who has received Jesus Christ as lord and their personal savior now  can say that they now have no gift of the Spirit from God. God has given all believers gifts; some have several but also now everyone can be equipped, completed, with these 9 gifts. These 9 non optional gifts of the Spirit are given not solely  for the believer usage  but are to be used  for the Body of Christ. It is to make the Body complete. These gifts are intended for the church to edify it, to strengthen it, to feed it, to exhort it, to encourage it and to have the Body of Christ empowered to do the work of Christ. These gifts are always to exalt Christ, to witness of God’s  power, to build up the Body, and to work in the Body of Christ  world wide too;

.

Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

.

Hebrews 13: 8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

.

Acts 1:8, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”

.

My life also wasn’t always  perfect  and still isn’t now. But receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit opened up a whole new, dynamic relationship with the Lord  My life was transformed instantly. Before the baptism of the Holy Spirit, I was in fear; afterward, I was as bold as a lion (Prov. 28:1). and noext now  It wasn’t me living anymore, but Christ was living through me.

Luke 11: 13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

.

Matthew 7:7,  “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:”

.

Part of this package means receiving  by faith continually and freely at all times  also the fruit of the Holy Spirit

.

Galatians 5: 16    This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17    For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18    But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. 19    Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20    Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21    Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22    But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23    Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24    And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25    If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

.

Each and every Born again, Spirit filled Christian is clearly a part of “… the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. And God has placed in the church first of all apostles (no longer in this church age), second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? I Cor. 12:28-31 .

.

Now as you pursue your own Ministry and earnestly desire the greater gifts“ I also now do pray you not only seek after all of the Holy Spirit gifts,lacking in none of them too  and that  you will utilize them all next  to the strengthening of the whole Body of Christ, of  which you are a part.

.

We do not emphasize the baptism in the Spirit and speaking in tongues to a greater extent than all of the other essential New testament doctrines such as the New Birth from Above (salvation), dying to self, the Lordship of Jesus Christ,  and water baptism. All the teachings of the New Testament even about  tongues have  the same priority as it is in Scripture.
.

There are now many, many Christians who give testimony to a new, dynamic and personal, life-changing experiences as a result of their  relationship with the Holy Spirit 

.
(Mark 16:17 KJV) And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall s…peak with new tongues;18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. (Mat 10:1 KJV) And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.(Luke 10:19 KJV) Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. (Luke 12:5 KJV) But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him (Acts 1:8 KJV) But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. (Acts 10:38 KJV) How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. (Rom 15:19 KJV) Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ. (1 Cor 2:4 KJV) And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: For God expects us all personally also to live the full Gospel… for there needs to be a real personal evidence, sign of it in our own life continuously too..
