His Internal Ministry- The Performance of the Holy Spirit in Impartation, Initiation, and Implementation

Bible Audio Blog

 

Let’s talk about #Pentecost.  How did it happen?  When did it happen?  What happened?  Has it ever been repeated?  Is there a difference between the event repeating and the experience being repeated?  Is the Holy Spirit imparted to all believers equally?  What was the significance of the signs of wind, fire, and tongues that accompanied the initiation of the Holy Spirit’s ministry on Earth?  How was the Church born the day the Holy Spirit came down?  What does that mean for the governance and guidance of the Church?  All this power that was given to believers was meant to be implemented to witness.  What proves that witnessing in our own strength is fruitless?

THE LIVING GOD IS GRACIOUS

Have you ever been awe struck?  It might have been at a time when you meet a dignitary or saw the first love of your life.  Did it shiver your timbers?  Then reality set in when the awesome personality simply was not gracious!   I was hosting a respected individual for dinner at a 1854 farmhouse, when he abruptly proclaimed -“Best thing to do for this place is tear it down”  I said nothing, but respect flew out the window.  We all have opinions, but some are best unspoken when they injure others.  To be gracious is a gift from the Lord, because it is not self centered.  What did Jesus say as recorded in Rev. 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door and knock:  if any one hears my voice, and opens the door, I will come into him and will sup with him, and he with me.”  There is one whom we will always praise as He thankfully invites us to come into His presence .  “Praise the LORD, I will praise the LORD with my whole heart in the assembly of the upright and in the congregation.  The works of the LORD are great, sought out of them that have pleasure therein.  His work is honorable and glorious; and His righteousness endures forever.  He has made His wonderful works to be remembered:  THE LORD IS GRACIOUS AND FULL OF COMPASSION.  He sent redemption to His people: and commanded His covenant forever: holy and reverend is His name.” Ps.111  May we all be taught by our gracious Living God.

His Internal Ministry- The Performance of the Holy Spirit – in Communication, Conviction, and Conversion

Bible Audio Blog

 

Last week, we heard about the role of the #HolySpirit in #history.  This week, we hear about the current role He plays in our lives.  How does the Holy Spirit communicate to us today?  How do we know that the Bible is unique amongst all the other literature in the world?  Where inspiration ended, illumination began.  How does the Bible present differently to the critic and the one who is seeking?  What is the difference between conviction by the conscience and that of the Holy Spirit?  Is righteousness achieved by doing right?  What choice does the Holy Spirit show us?  Whose kingdom is finished and days are numbered?  Whose work convinces us to ask ‘what must I do to be saved?’  Is it ever up to us to convert others to a saving belief in Jesus Christ?  What role will the Holy Spirit play in the resurrection and glorification of believers in the future?

THE LIVING GOD IS OUR HELP

DO YOU NEED #HELP?  At sometime I believe we all need #assistance.  With #catastrophes constantly being shown in real time before us on world news via #internet and #tv, we see death, destruction, and chaos evident all around.  It seems to me that the entire world is in upheaval with hurricanes, floods, fires, tornados, earthquakes, rockets, wars, invasions, murders, and crimes.  So what can I do?  “They helped every one his neighbor; and everyone said to his brother, ‘Be of good courage for the carpenter encouraged the (workers) with the nails and rebuilding.”Is.41:6  There are many charitable organizations that give assistance and even numerous loving individuals that provide support, but the devastation has to be faced.  How?   I think it is a personal one on one encounter which determines the battle.  How?  Ask GOD!  “In my trouble, I cried to the LORD, and He answered me” Ps.120:1  “My help comes from the LORD who made heaven and earth.  The LORD IS YOUR KEEPER” Ps.121:1-5  “GOD is our refuge and strength, a VERY PRESENT HELP IN TROUBLE.  Do not fear though the earth be removed and mountains carried into the sea…the heathen rage, the kingdoms removed…He makes wars to cease unto the end of the earth…Be still and know that I Am GOD..the LORD OF hosts is with us” Ps.46  The word of God is truth..Is.41:10,13 Fear not; for I AM with you; be not dismayed for I AM YOUR GOD:  I will strengthen you, I WILL HELP YOU, yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness...I THE LORD YOUR GOD will hold your right hand, while saying to you, “FEAR NOT, I WILL HELP YOU”  Choose today who you call for aide, but as for me- I will call upon the LORD.  God has a 24 hr. helpline!
