Jesus was able to read from the prophets in the synagogue at Nazareth, possibly on a day of Pentecost. From Scripture we learn that the Holy Spirit is God.

'”– Charles Spurgeon. Are we using it in an appropriate manner? Richard Cimino is the founding pastor of Metro Calvary. Bruce. His righteousness came about by a state of mind, a mind that Paul encourages us to acquire through letting us see that difference between the spirit of this world, that humanity has, and the mind of God (1 Corinthians 2:9–15). The Holy Spirit also helps Christians in their weakness and intercedes for them. It is no less supernatural today than it was in the Book of Acts. Paul also encouraged the Ephesian brethren to: “[pray] always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints” (Ephesians 6:18). The need for the Holy Spirit to be present abundantly in our lives is given in terms of one of the most intimate relationships possible—marriage. To attempt to do the work of the Kingdom of God WITHOUT spiritual gifts is pointless and ultimately fruitless. “refuse to do anything which is evil,” or “refuse to act in any way which even seems bad.”. The human brain deprived of oxygen is marginalized. With these words, Jesus encapsulated for His disciples the necessity of the Holy Spirit and the impact it would have on their lives—and by extension on ours. The next question then is: do we have enough? We need to know the Holy Spirit as a person, not a person like we are, but a person, and I say that he's a person because he has all the traits of personality. It is in faith that all those who believe posses the Holy Spirit tha… An understanding of the Holy Spirit is so essential to our faith, yet talked about so little. Paul understood this when he wrote these words to the Christians in Rome: “…that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. As He sat discussing the need for the Holy Spirit, Jesus told those with Him that they would accomplish even more than He had done: “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. He is the God who speaks — The opening chapter of the first book of the Bible we find 10 times — “God said….”. The new believer is "born again of the Spirit". Rather, the New Testament gift of prophecy is reporting in merely human words what God has brought to mind. Paul has given to them a picture of the living, breathing community of believers. THIS is so challenging to me — because it is my LIFE’S WORK to study and teach these very truths. Where do you start a series of the Holy Spirit?

John encourages us with a similar statement: “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

The Holy Spirit Is a Helper Who Teaches and Reminds These include “convict[ing] the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment” (v. 9)—of sin, “because they do not believe in Me” (v. 10) of righteousness, “because I go to My Father and you see Me no more” (v. 11) and of judgment, “because the ruler of this world is judged” (John 16:8–11).

That picture of the church is vitally important today. Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. Stop praying. Isaiah saw the latter function as being a sign of the Holy Spirit (Isaiah 61:1). The church was not only in spiritual disarray — the facility was really small, really old, smelled old and musty. The Holy Spirit. Marriage is a different metaphor than that used by Jesus at the Passover. But that same background has also provided us with a fairly keen sense of what is contrivedSome of you might have a low view of prophecy — or the exercise of spiritual gifts — because you have seen the abuses and contrivances of the gifts in certain nationally known “ministries.” Perhaps you grew up in a church culture that was a microcosm of those ministries. There are some spirits that NEED quenching. "Let the others weigh what is said" (1 Corinthians 14:29). We should not fight against that work of God. If you are going to warn or exhort or comfort someone, surely the ministry of the Spirit and the testimony of Jesus is going to be a part of it. The ONLY way to be kept blameless is to be IN Christ and WASHED by His blood. Stop giving thanks. In fact, the unaided human efforts to live the Christian life are worse than futile. Paul is an excellent example of how knowledge without the application of the Spirit does not work the righteousness of God. Those on the receiving end may not bear witness to it — they might discern that what the person said were their own thoughts and their own inclinations — they were voicing their own desires and claiming that it was a revelation from God! Let’s revisit the concept that praying without ceasing carries that idea of RECURRING prayer. The day of Pentecost was the beginning of the indwelling power of the Spirit living within those He saves (John 14:17; Acts 2:1–4). The man I described earlier had it backwards, as do so many professing Christians today—they desire the gift of tongues without having to produce fruits of the Spirit! It is the declaration of that which cannot be known by natural means." The birth of the church and the advance of the Gospel in the Book of Acts was a work utterly outside mere human capacity. "Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy" (Jude 24). That is why we are not to DESPISE prophecy or hold it in contempt, instead, we’re to be open, weigh it out, put it to the test of Scripture — hold fast to what is good.One of the most needful and common forms of prophecy in a community of believers is TELLING FORTH the mind of the Lord.Valerie and I had just gotten some disturbing news and medical advice from her doctor. But I was able to thank God that our dear friends Michael and Pam Rozell were at Metro THAT night, and I was able to go straight home to be with Valerie after opening the evening in prayer — and they loved on Ashley and brought her home after the service. There is NOTHING in the universe that can touch the joys of being set aside for the master’s use. Once again, Paul reinforces these statements by Jesus Christ in laying out the “fruits of the Spirit” so that we can appreciate them (Galatians 5:22–23). The Holy Spirit is also important because he is the guarantee of your inheritance in heaven. But the Holy Spirit instructs us here to NOT despise such utterances. "– E. M. Bounds, Power Through Prayer, "Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. There’s a part of each of us that is prone to complain rather than rejoice! The Bible teaches that the Holy Spirit is all-powerful and present everywhere. (4) You are anointed “to release the oppressed”. THAT is why Jesus said — You must be born again. However learned, godly, and eloquent a minister may be, he is nothing without the Holy Spirit. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:14–16). Rejoice always — follows verse 15 — "See that no one repays anyone evil for evil. We are so glad that he obeyed the Lord and stepped out in faith and shared it with us in humility and love. H ow does the Holy Spirit manifest in the lives of believers? Prayer gives a channel to the pent-up sorrows of the soul, they flow away, and in their stead streams of sacred delight pour into the heart. Here was a man who wanted to buy the gift that the apostles possessed—but without ever repenting and seeking our Father’s will in his life (Acts 8:18–24)! It begins with the Holy Spirit. Paul even went on to declare that we cannot understand the real nature, role, and purpose of Jesus Christ without the Spirit. The death of the last apostle and the completion of the Canon of Scripture hasn’t changed any of that! And isn’t it GREAT to be used by Jesus? "Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely.". After his conversion, with the insight provided by the Spirit, he became a man driven to give life to people, healing the sick and even raising the dead (Acts 20:9–13). He read from a text in Isaiah noting: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed” (Luke 4:18). That said, I desire ALL of what the Holy Spirit would want to do in the realm of prophecy and spiritual gifts "Pursue love, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy" (1 Corinthians 14:1). But we must not confuse the spectacular with the supernatural. The Holy Spirit reveals God’s thoughts, teaches, and guides believers into all truth, including knowledge of what is to come. We simply see some symptoms. Before being born again — the body and the soul are alive, but because we are spiritually dead, we are incapable of fellowship with God who is spirit. One of the important benefits that come to a Christian when he receives the Holy Spirit is the ability to speak in other tongues. You live in this body. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another” (Galatians 5:22–26). Paul explained this to the brethren in Rome: “Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. Remember “if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you” (Romans 8:11). We “cut our teeth” so-to-speak in an environment where people exercised the gift of prophecy, the word of knowledge, the gift of tongues, etc. Many mistakenly think of speaking in tongues as the primary or even sole external sign of the Holy Spirit, just as it was displayed on the day of Pentecost in 31ad (see Acts 2). Prepare your home – go to confession and make your soul a … The eyes of our understanding are blinded. The Holy Spirit's power was made manifest to a great number of people that day, resulting in the conversion of about 3,000 (Acts 2:41). "Think of the context. In the Old Testament, to disobey a prophet of God was to disobey God. Jesus promised the Holy Spirit so the apostles could be led into all truth (John 16:12–15). It’s important to know that it’s possible to be used by the Holy Spirit in a prophetic way without knowing it. I kept thinking, “Why would I leave CCCM to go to THAT!" They heard all of His teachings in person. It was an essential element for the operation of the Tabernacle and the Temple. You start with the next words of Paul:"Do not despise prophecies, but test everything; hold fast what is good. It comes immediately after the precept, 'Rejoice evermore;' as if that command had somewhat staggered the reader, and made him ask 'How can I always rejoice?' Listen and watch the 2017 Pastors & Leaders Conference. When Adam sinned, he died spiritually. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that [it] may abide with you forever—the Spirit of truth, [which] the world cannot receive, because it neither sees [it] nor knows [it]; but you know [it], for [it] dwells with you and will be in you. Jesus talked about this being accomplished through “abiding in Him,” a concept that involves the presence of the Holy Spirit (John 14:23–26; 15:1–8, esp. Thank you in advance. But the Lord said, "The future glory of this Temple will be greater than its past glory, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. You’re just sharing what the Lord has been doing in your life, or what you’ve been reading, and the Holy Spirit uses your words to reveal the mind of the Lord to the person you’re talking to. He is the Executor, the One Who brings God’s plan to reality and fulfillment. Not only healing, but other gifts of the Holy Spirit begin to flow from the powerful anointing of the Spirit of God in your life. Prayer is like breathing in the sense that an oxygen-deprived life is a marginalized life. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. Knowing the supernatural nature of the Christian life, he instinctively turned to the Lord in prayer for them.
