Return of the Supernational Church: Nelson Hopkins

Hebrews 6:2 tells of the doctrine of baptisms. Plural. There are at least three baptisms in NT Scripture.

1. Baptism OF the Holy Spirit – Into the Body of Christ
2. Baptism BY disciples of Christ – In water
3. Baptism WITH the Holy Spirit by Jesus

All are unique in their purpose.
#1&3 are spiritual (invisible).
#2 is symbolic. (visible)

#1 is New Birth and Promise Completion
#2 is New Identity by Public Confession
#3 is New Power to Proclaim the Kingdom of God

In restoring the Supernatural Church , #3 is imperative. Without the power of the Holy Spirit enabling the Church to be His witnesses, believers are nothing more than another philosophy. And just like all other philosophies only as convincing as the intellect and charisma of the speaker.

Unfortunately, #3, the most necessary for advancing the Kingdom of God in the earth is the most neglected, debated and incorrectly taught of the three. Tongues for speaking directly to God and not man, power to be His witnesses and confirmation of the Gospel of Christ and His resurrection are not welcome or taught in many “churches” today.
But it is and always will be taught and practiced by true Bible believers.
Jesus IS restoring the Supernatural Church.

My Heavenly Harp: theunfetteredpreacher

I am pleased to have acquired this harp from an old, no name, baby grand.

If you recall I once had the shell of a different baby grand as a lawn planter. (It was not repairable).

It finally fell too far apart, and cost too much to keep it filled with plants. (Exit piano.)

I now have this new, (old), harp, and have finally placed it where it belongs. (My sweet wife will come to love it. lol).

Soon the Confederate Jasmine should begin to weave itself through the strings and cast iron.

It smells and looks so good, when in bloom.

I am a Happy Man.

Thanks for visiting.

We all have the relationship we desire with the Lord. My desire is for a more intimate one.

The LORD looked down: theunfetteredpreacher

Psalm 14: 2.

“The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.”

He is looking, what does He see?

Thanks for visiting,

In Whose Name? Theunfetteredpreacher

In Whose Name?

In The Name: If a rose by any other Name…

We believe in some Names.

For me if Clint Eastwood’s Name is in the credits, I am sure I will enjoy the movie.

For others it may be Spielberg, or Pixar, Disney ot Tom Hanks, that gets the blood flowing.

Just the Name conveys confidence that we can trust and rely on the experience we will have.

It’s the same with Churches, Baptist, Methodist, Full Gospel… the Names all have an implied meaning.

We would feel betrayed, if we walked into a Full Gospel Church and found a Methodist order of service. The reverse would also be true.

We depend, trust, and rely on the Name, to guide and direct us, we can’t Worship there, they don’t believe like we do.

We make many choices because of a Name, a brand of gas, a can of beans, a bag of chips. We make choices based on a Name.

In the book of Acts, the lame man from the gate beautiful was healed, the people gathered and Peter explained.

It wasn’t John or I that healed this man, only Jesus.

Acts 3: 16.

And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.”

Acts 3:16 (AMPC)

And His name, through and by faith in His name, has made this man whom you see and recognize well and strong. [Yes] the faith which is through and by Him [Jesus] has given the man this perfect soundness [of body] before all of you.”

Faith in His Name. JESUS

Faith through His Name. JESUS

Faith by this Name. JESUS

That is a Name we can trust, rely and depend on.

Do we? Really?

For Healing? Comfort and Joy? Salvation?

Turn around, are there signs and Wonders following? If not, the Lord said we do not believe.

Have we lost, our Faith in His Name?
