If you have questions about Holy Spirit then you are in good company. The Apostle Paul found a small group of believer's in Ephesus "and asked them, "Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?" They answered, "No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit." Acts 19:2 NIV
Did you catch that?
They hadn't even heard that there was a Holy Spirit. I can hear lots of questions in that statement.
QUESTIONs I hear often
- What is the Holy Spirit?
- Who it the Holy Ghost?
- What does the Bible say about the Holy Spirit?
- Did I receive the Holy Spirit when I got saved?
- Has being filled with Holy Spirit passed away
- Who should be filled with the Holy Spirit?What will happen when a person is filled with Holy Spirit?
- Will I ask wierd if I get filled with Holy Spirit
- Why should I be filled with Holy Spirit?
- How do I get filled with Holy Spirit?
EVEN HIS NAME, HOLY Ghost in the KJV, Holy Spirit, LEAVES SOME PEOPLE FEELING SPOOKED AND OTHERS CONFUSED.
It seems to me that scripture intentionally cloaked the entire subject of who Holy Spirit is in a great mystery. It seems that God purposefully hid the treasure of this knowledge like gold is hidden in the earth for desperate miners to uncover. The first step to learning is to ask a question, so I love questions. Especially, because when people ask questions that means they aren't just making assumptions. You do realize that jumping to conclusions and making uninformed assumptions robs believers of important benefits. And nobody wants to rob them selves especially when it comes to something this important.
MAYBE YOU HAVEN'T BEEN ASKING THESE QUESTIONS, BUT MAYBE YOU SHOULD...
Who is the Holy Spirit?
Who is the Holy Spirit and why is discovering who He is so important to you? Especially in light of the troubled age we are living in today! I hope you know Jesus as Savior and Friend, that's the first step. I hope you know, really know God the Father as a loving father, protecting, providing and guiding. But don't stop there, you need to experience the communion of the Holy Spirit that Paul talks about in 2 Corinthians 13:14 NIV "May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all." I thank God for the saving grace of Jesus that I enjoy as a believer. I revel in my heavenly Father's love, but we are missing so much if we fail to experience the the power of the Holy Spirit and the strength that a relationship with Him brings.
What is Pentecost?
Is Pentecost another denomination?
Is Pentecost a historical event?
Do I need to know about Pentecost?
Why do I need to know about Pentecost...it happened a long time ago?
The first step to that relationship is discovering who He is. I'd like to help you know who Holy Spirit really is.
The early church was born in the fire and power of the Holy Spirit. If the early church needed power then, don’t we still need it? Did God intend for the church to be born in dynamic fire only to sizzle out? Or has the lid of wrong teaching kept us from receiving the infilling of the Holy Spirit? Has unbelief cut your tap root so your people fail to receive the deep things of God?
