"But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren." Luke 22:32
We have talked about doing the works of the ministry, but in order to do that we need to be continually filled with the Holy Spirit. Many are attempting to follow Christ, to live a Christian life, but are not availing themselves of the power of God: His Holy Spirit. It is all just the flesh...or the workings of "another spirit" (II Corinthians 11:4). Now more than ever we need to seek God to be filled and for power to stand against the wickedness of the time in which we now live.
"But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost
is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem,
and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the
earth." Acts 1:8
Take a moment to listen to this message from brother Emmanuel K. on "Receiving the Fire of the Holy Spirit".
"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." Acts2:39
