We, are the children of the promise: We have experienced being born of water, and now of the Spirit.
We are Children of the King, with all the rights, privileges, authority and power of Jesus.
We are blameless in the beloved.
Jesus told us, we would do everything He did, heal the sick, raise the dead, comfort the brokenhearted.
If we ask, we will receive. Are we?
Here in lies our problem.
Like a fireman we have hooked up to the source of life saving water.
We are ready to receive the powerful stream of water and change lives.
We wait, the power is not flowing as the Bible tells us it should. What could be wrong?
It is much like Jesus in His home town. In His church, we see no mighty miracles, just a few sick folks healed.
Yet, we marvel at His power, as He shakes His head, and marvels at our unbelief.
If we read Mark 6, we find Jesus leaving His home town, to teach, preach and do signs, wonders and miracles elsewhere.
He healed all that He touched and all that touched Him.
A friend scolded me recently that I have been beating the Holy Spirit too hard, that even those who believe would consider it too much.
Could be that’s true, when first saved I could not understand why so many rejected the Good News of God with us, the hope of glory.
How could they reject Gods perfect gift.
Mingling with mostly Spirit filled people, I never thought to speak of His Baptism. The Spirit was evident in their daily life. (Joy, peace, a positive reliance on the Lord).
Since the Lord brought me to this non-spirit filled Church, I have been trying to bring them the light and I have been expecting them to embrace this truth.
I know they love the Lord, but the difference between those with the baptism of the Spirit and those without is plainly evident.
They do not recognize it, it is foolishness of them. It is Spiritually discerned.
I do not understand how folks can believe in a part of His promises, and reject the tools Jesus promised to do His will.
So yes, I have hit this hard. The Church should, would and could meet the needs of the world, but the need to release the power of their source.
We are connected to the power, and
don’t know how to activate the power.
Like hooking a hose to a fire hydrant, there is a second step. We must turn on the water.
1 Corinthians 2:14
“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
Please saints, ask the Lord to open your eyes to see and your ears to hear.
Ask the Holy Spirit to lead you to all truth.
King James Version (KJV)
“The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.”
He gave us the mission, He sent us the tools and knowledge to complete the job.
JUST DO IT!!! Amen
