Summary: Speaks on the Power of the Baptism of the Holy Ghost.
DO YOU HAVE THE
POWER OF THE SPIRIT?
Ephesians 5:15 - 20
The Power of the Holy Spirit is how we posses that power that the apostle’s had back in Jesus’ day!!! In order for us to be that light of the world for Jesus, we have to posses this power.
After Tonight, hopefully you’ll have a better understanding, of how you can be filled with the Holy Spirit!!
First of all you can’t grieve the Holy Ghost!
Nor can you quench this spirit!
You have to begin to walk in the spirit!!AMEN
Church we have to learn how to tap into this power. Now don’t get me wrong I know we all had the Holy Spirit within us, and leading us in order for us to be saved to start with!!!!
But how do we draw from this power??
How do we make ourselves open, to the working of the Holy Ghost?
How do we receive the full dose?
We can answer all the above by looking at tonight’s scripture.
You already know that as a believer, you already have the Holy Ghost living inside.
We don’t need any other type of power!
We don’t need to ask God to give us his spirit again and again, because He’s already given his Spirit to us.
We already have everything we need to have the insight, the comfort, the power, and the courage and the wisdom.
Here’s what you do!!
Look in your bibles at vs. 18 where it says and be not drunk with wine wherein, is excess!!! But be filled with the Spirit AMEN!
This verse gives us 2 commands a negative and a positive.
The 1st we’re given, tells us not to give ourselves over to something that’s gonna have control over how we’ll act, speak, or just function in general!
Everybody knows how alcohol can affect us.
Someone on alcohol just don’t act right!!
They can’t walk straight, they can’t talk without slurring and,
Someone who is normally shy will be a big mouth, and someone who usually has good sense about them, suddenly becomes as stupid as they come!!!!!
This person is no longer in control of their actions.
The alcohol has taken over.
Now plainly putting it, is they’re drunk,
But I like to think of this command as, applying to anything that would cause us to act against our normal behavior, like Drugs, lust, Greed, physical desires, or anything of the flesh that causes us to do or say things that we normally wouldn’t!!!!!AMEN
Galatians 5:19 tells it like this:
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness.
Vs. 20 goes on to say:
Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like:
If there are any of these things that posses you in your life, or are in control of you, in your life, You must put a stop to them, immediately if not sooner, The Apostle Paul has told us this here in Galatians!!!!!
The other command He gives us, is to be filled with the Spirit!!!!
You have to begin to walk in the Spirit!!!
Galatians 5:25 says:
If we live in the Spirit, let us
also walk in the Spirit!!!
This ain’t no suggestion, and it’s not even a casual statement,
People The Bible says it’s a Command!!!!AMEN
