TEXT : ACTS 2 VS 1 – 4, 1 VS 13.
As we know that this month of January is our month of divine Empowerment, and we have been learning and looking into the scriptures what precedes Empowerment and also what are we suppose to use the power for after receiving it, and what are the results that we expect after we have been empowered.
These are the things and questions that should be running through our minds.
We have commonly say that Expectation is the mother of Manifestation. If we have been expectant and diligent in our teaching so far, I want to believe that God has no limit to which He will bestow this power upon us, if only we purpose to use the power the right way.
The Holy Spirit that has been promised is not a racist as we can read in Acts 2 vs 17, the Bible records that He will pour out of His Spirit upon ALL flesh.
The Holy Spirit is for everybody that is able to fulfil the conditions of receiving Him. There is no racial or gender difference.
Before the power came upon the disciples they were very expectant, as the bible records that they were in one place in one accord Acts 2 vs 1. That is putting themselves in a position and condition that is favourable to receiving the Holy Spirit.
As soon as the Holy Spirit came upon the disciples, they were all transformed from the natural to the supernatural, they begin to do uncommon and unusual things that were so obvious and miraculous to the whole world.
Examples include, healing the sick Acts 5 vs 15, delivering the oppressed/possessed Acts 16 vs 16-18.Setting the captives free Acts 16 vs 26. bringing the lost to Jesus Christ for salvation of their soul Acts 16 vs 28 -30.Raising the dead Acts 20 vs 9 – 12.The blind receiving their sights, the lame walking Acts 3 vs 2-9.to mention but a few.
The same power is available to us today, if only we can satisfy the conditions for receiving the Holy Spirit baptism.
My prayer is that as many of us that is thirsting for the Holy Spirit baptism before the end of the service we shall receive in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
He is available for us today and that flame of fire as was sitted upon the disciples on that day will sit upon everyone that sincerely desire in Jesus mighty name.
Never failing to mention that salvation is the first step to receiving this power,so you must be born again.
