A A fall of God’s power over a church/believer is a game changer (encouragement)
a It is the outpouring of His Spirit that makes us keep going when the well gets dry, waters have grown stagnant, burned out & ready to quit.
b For those who are spiritually thirsty, the rain does come (or you’ll where it is raining) and experience “times of refreshing.”
c God promises His babies an outpouring, Isa. 44.3.
3 'For I will pour out water on the thirsty land And streams on the dry ground; I will pour out My Spirit on your offspring And My blessing on your descendants; Isaiah 44:3 (quickview)  (NASB)
2 When God’s power falls, there will also be endowment. (Gift, pension, legacy)
a He endows/equips the church/Christians to minister & serve.
b Often times revival brings forth these “times of refreshing.”
aa The water level rises and sweeps away all the jams, dry spots, and the river runs once again.
bb The dry places of your life become re-hydrated, saturated with living water once again.
cc Church/individual both can experience revival.
3 Revival is a showcase of what man can do as God breaks through in His power.
1 Endue actually means “to clothe.”
a “Endue” has to do with the visible work of the Holy Spirit.
b You see people’s clothes & you notice when someone doesn’t have any clothes on.
c This enduing is the tangible evidence that God has come upon a person’s spirit.
2 What does the Holy Spirit look like when He clothes someone?
a We’ve talked about gifts (like prayer language as well as other phenomena), but this is not the only gift/manifestation of the Holy Spirit.
b I want you to know what the clothes of the Holy Spirit like, what kind of fashion He brings.
I Physical Manifestations of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
A Trembling or shaking under God’s power.
22 'Do you not fear Me?' declares the Lord. 'Do you not tremble in My presence? For I have placed the sand as a boundary for the sea, An eternal decree, so it cannot cross over it. Though the waves toss, yet they cannot prevail; Though they roar, yet they cannot cross over it. Jer 5:22
a 10 Then behold, a hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees.11 He said to me, "O Daniel, man of high esteem, understand the words that I am about to tell you and stand upright , for I have now been sent to you." And when he had spoken this word to me, I stood up trembling. Dan 10:10-11 (NASB)
