Rediscovering The Person Of The Holy Spirit
The Power of the Holy Spirit
Acts 1:1-8 • October 13, 2019 • John Anderson
The early church had little in the way of possessions, prestige or privilege, but they were filled with God’s Spirit and turned their world upside down with the message of Christ! Why is it that today’s church has much but accomplishes so little for the kingdom of God? Could it be we are missing the secret of power with God and success with the souls of men?
Strengthened By the Spirit
Ephesians 3:14-21 • October 6, 2019 • John Anderson
Our culture always puts the emphasis on the external, but the emphasis in the Christian life is always on the internal, the hidden man of the heart. The only way to change the inner man is through the power of the Holy Spirit. What does that look like in our lives?
Praying in the Holy Ghost
Jude vs. 17-21 Ephesians 6:17-20 • September 29, 2019 • John Anderson
How’s your prayer life? That’s a good question for the child of God to ask frequently. Is it possible to pray in the will of God, aided by the Spirit, aware of God’s will in all matters, and see specific answers to those prayers? It is, when we pray in the Spirit.
What About Speaking in Tongues
2 Timothy 2:15 • September 15, 2019 • John Anderson
There is much confusion today about speaking in tongues for the modern-day Christian. Let’s see what God’s Word says about the purpose for tongues, who the practice was for, and what exactly this verbal miracle of communication was in its essence.
Are We Living in the Apostolic Age?
Ephesians 4:11 2 Corinthians 12:12 • September 8, 2019 • John Anderson
Are there still Apostles of the Lord among us and active in the church? What does the scripture have to say about the requirements and responsibilities of an Apostle? Here is a search through the New Testament that will provide answers to these very questions.
The Giving Of Spiritual Gifts
Ephesians 4:7-12 • August 11, 2019 • John Anderson
Everything the local church needs is provided by God through the giving of spiritual gifs to His children. Each of us has a gift that is to be used in His body, the church, so that the church functions properly and impacts this world.
Sinning Against the Holy Spirit
Genesis 1 • July 28, 2019 • John Anderson
The Word of God teaches us that there are several sins that can be committed against the person of the Holy Spirit, both by unbelievers and by believers. Why would we as God’s children want to offend and sin against our best friend, the One who made our dead spiritual nature come alive in Christ?
Do You Want An Upgrade?
Ephesians 5:18 • July 21, 2019 • John Anderson
This command to be "filled with the Spirit" is often overlooked by God's people. Our lives are to be permeated, influenced in every part by the Holy Spirit as we yield our lives to His control. It is not a "feeling", but rather a "filling."
