His Internal Ministry – The Pertinence Of The Holy Spirit – Sensing Sins

Bible Audio Blog

With great #power comes great #responsibiity – Uncle Ben.  What are some things we are warned about concerning the #HolySpirit?  What six sins against the Holy Spirit are both Believers and unbelievers told about in the Bible?  Everyone has resisted the Holy Spirit to some degree in the past and many still are.  What is the end result of perpetual resistance?  What is the unpardonable sin?  What is the paradox of wondering whether or not you have crossed the line of the unpardonable sin?  What are the evidences of it?  How can we grieve the Holy Spirit?  What does that tell us about Him?  What does it mean to quench the Holy Spirit as opposed to grieving?  

Hopefully, you have enjoyed this series on our helper, the Holy Spirit.  Next week, Lord willing, we will start a series on our enemy, the Devil.

Peaceful Thoughts


from Barbara's Bible

“Who #said that?” is a phrase often repeated today. It seems everyone wants to repeat what was told them via a #friend, #enemy, #internet, or #news outlet. I am amazed at the distortion of verbiage. It reminds be of the whisper game where one person whispers a thought into the ear of the person next to him and then they pass it on from one to another. The last recipient then says aloud what he heard. The announced sentence was so distorted from the original that it seldom made sense. Sound familiar? This is why I turn to the Bible for truth which comes directly from His Word. Jesus said, “I have not spoken of myself; but the Father who sent me, He gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. I know that His commandment is life everlasting; whatsoever I speak even as the FATHER SAID UNTO ME, SO I SPEAK.” John 12:49,50 Are you listening? “COMFORT YOU MY PEOPLE, SAID THE LORD ” Is.40:1 How is this possible if you have not befriended Him? “We have seen strange things today…even a tax collector named Levi…and HE SAID UNTO HIM – FOLLOW ME” Luke 5:27 Who are you following now? Isaiah 66;23 lets us know God’s Words are true in the past, present, and future…”It shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another shall ALL FLESH COME TO WORSHIP BEFORE ME, SAID THE LORD” Be careful little ears what you hear!

His Internal Ministry – The Pertinence Of The Holy Spirit – Giving Word Gifts

Bible Audio Blog

Last week, we learned about #work #gifts from the #HolySpirit and this week, we are going to learn about what Brother Tommy calls #word gifts (not to be confused with the Fruit of the Spirit).  What is discerning of spirits?  Interestingly, the Bible says discerning of spirits and not people.  What can we do to build this word gift?  Is it possible that more of us Believers have been given the gift of evangelism than we are aware?  What is involved in the gift of exhortation?  What is the gift of interpretation and how does it need to be present before the use of another gift?  Who showed us the gift of the word of knowledge in the Bible?  Music, although not specifically defined as a gift, is presented throughout the Bible.  Do you desire the gift of prophecy?  Good, Paul said you should, but it may not look like what you think it does.  Teaching is a more often seen gift, but it is still too rare.  Is there a more controversial gift than speaking in tongues?  What about wisdom and how does it differ from knowledge?

Peace instead of Problems


from Barbara's Bible

“Boy, does she or he have a big #mouth!” Have you ever said that phrase or heard it #spoken about someone? I am appalled by the #garbage that is spewed out of the mouths of both men and women on TV and on line today! Gutter talk seems to get them the attention which they are craving and they think it makes them tough. Well, not only am I sickened and ashamed for them, but what does our Heavenly Father think about ‘your mouth’ when we are made in His image? In Deuteronomy 8 it is written that the Lord our God humbled the Israelites for forty years in the wilderness while observing their willingness to keep His laws and to teach them v.3″that man does not live by bread alone, but BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD DOES MAN LIVE...6.therefore, keep the commandments of the LORD GOD, to walk in His ways and to respect Him” Do we show respect to anyone in authority today ? GOD shows love for us even while we are sinners. Is.53:9 “GOD made His grave with the wicked, and with the rich in His death; because He had done no violence, NEITHER WAS ANY DECEIT IN HIS MOUTH” Our Living Savior, Jesus Christ humbled Himself to carry the burden of all our sins away forever if we turn to Him. “Repent, I will come quickly, and WILL FIGHT AGAINST THEM WITH THE SWORD OF MY MOUTH Rev.2:16 “The glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: FOR THE MOUTH OF THE LORD HAS SPOKEN IT…..the grass withers, the flower fades: but the word of our GOD shall stand forever.” Isaiah 40:5,8 My prayer: “May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength and my redeemer” Ps.19:14
