Part 2: God Has Given you A Spirit of Power [Mp3 Format - 90.8.mb]


Did God Really Give Me Supernatural Power?
How Do I Obtain The Power That God Said I Have?
Why Do Christians Suffer So Much?
How Come God Doesn't Answer Me
What is the Secret to A Christian's Power?
How Do I "Do the Works that Jesus Did - And Even Greater Works"?
  


Scripture Reference:
"And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh (people): and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath" [Acts 2:17]

   


God Is pouring Out His Spirit:
Our Heavenly Father is pouring out His Spirit upon All people - and He wants you to receive Him in such measure that you are literally a walking powerhouse that is supernaturally empowered to do not only the works that Jesus did - but even greater works!

Why is God pouring out His Spirit instead of just doing things according to previous generations? Acts 1:8 tells us exactly why: "You shall receive power, after the Holy Ghost is come upon you - and you shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth."
   


Power for What?
Let me tell you plainly what scripture says instead of what tradition and many denominational doctrines teach.

Acts 1:8 tells us the primary reason why God is pouring out His Spirit is so that WE can walk in the power and victory that we have Christ - and it is thru our example that we can be an effective and powerful witness to the world about the truth of the Gospel and the Power of God! 


A Powerful witness:
As Paul the Apostle said, we are not supposed to just have a bunch of words and fine arguments that are designed to convince people of the truth. We are supposed to be able to present the Gospel in Word and in Power!

"And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God." [1Cor:2:4-5]

"For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost...." [1Thes:1:5]


We are a Church of Miracles Signs and Wonders!
God has promised us that not only would we have His Holy Spirit living IN us - but that He would show wonders and do mighty miracles THRU us by the Power of the Holy Ghost that dwells in us.

Speaking of the Coming Church Isaiah boldly stated [Isa:8:18]: 
"Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwells in mount Zion." (the church - see Heb:12:22]

Speaking of the Coming Church Jesus Said:
"And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." [Mk:16:16-17]

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father....And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
Even the Spirit of truth;"
[Jn:14:12,176,17]

Speaking of the Present Church Paul the Apostle Declared:
"Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ." [Rom:15:19]


The Power of the Spirit:
Brethren, the Power of the Spirit of God is available to EVERY born-again Child of God. "You shall receive power, after the Holy Ghost is come upon you. 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 1:8 Acts 2;39]

It is only when the believer, acting in faith steps out and begins to demonstrate the power that dwells in him/her that God Jesus' promise comes into manifestation: "the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do..." [Jn:14:12]


It's For Us:
Even more exciting is the fact that Jesus wasn't just talking to the disciples - but he was speaking to us as well. 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]

Lack of Knowledge:
Unfortunately most Christians today have little or no knowledge of the Holy Spirit other than believing He exists - and consequently they have no idea as to HOW to access the power that God desires to release In them and THRU them. "My People are destroyed because of a lack of knowledge" [Hosea 4:6]


Part 1 of a New Series:
Many in the body of Christ have never learned how to access and walk in the Supernatural Power of the Holy Spirit. This is why we have put together a very special series on this subject. 

This in-depth study is designed to teach you the ministry of the Holy Ghost in the believer's life and how to access the Supernatural Power that is available to you by faith. Find out what belongs to you and how to obtain it.

I encourage each of you to learn the truth about how God has provided the means to supernaturally enable each of us to walk in His divine power in way that will bring forth the signs, wonders and miracles that Jesus promised that each of us could - and should show forth as a witness to a lost world.

Take the time to listen to the entire audio message and any following messages - and for those who receive the instructions and apply them you will begin to see the power of God manifested in a way that you never dreamed could be yours.
