THE New You & The Holy Spirit
For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.Acts 2:39
That includes you and I.
You know, Scripture talks about how believers will receive power after the Holy Ghost has come upon them (Acts 1:8). I know many Christians who are saved but powerless, and it’s this separate experience of the Holy Spirit that makes all the difference. Before I had the baptism of the Holy Spirit, I was charging hell with a water pistol. After I received the Holy Spirit, boy, it was like having a fire hose!
And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptised? And they said, Unto John’s baptism. Then said Paul, John verily baptised with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. When they heard this, they were baptised in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spoke with tongues, and prophesied.Acts 19:1-6
Here is a perfect example of what I’m talking about. Paul asked believers if they had received the Holy Ghost. That would have been a dumb question for people who couldn’t receive any more of the Holy Spirit than they already had. Can you see that?
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.Acts 2: 2-4
If we could ensure people were not only saved but also filled with the Holy Ghost, the devil would be in trouble! This is one of the reasons I emphasise the baptism of the Holy Spirit at many of my meetings. It is super important that we have this gift and begin to speak in tongues.
