And They Were All Filled With The Holy Ghost
It’s overwhelming to me how few churches there are that are really Holy Ghost filled. The Great Bible teacher Augustine expressed great sadness in his day because the Holy Ghost was missing. He said, ““For who expects in these days that those on whom hands are laid that they may receive the Holy Spirit… should forthwith begin to speak with tongues?” You could tell by the music you just heard that we are a Holy Ghost filled church. We are not wild and out of control but hungry for God’s presence and totally committed to the full Gospel. Not one sinner can be gloriously converted/Born Again until they are convicted by the Spirit. The Book of Acts is not some outdated scrip of a church model that is no longer Biblical. How ridiculous to think that we have this great picture of the early church right out of the Upper Room and then to dismiss it as no longer valid. It is just not true that God’s power ceased to be part of His Church when all the Apostles were dead. Here is a great church Father named “Novatian” defending this great power of the Holy Ghost baptism. ““This is He who places prophets in the Church, instructs teachers, directs tongues, gives powers and healings, does wonderful works, often discrimination of spirits, affords powers of government, suggests counsels, and orders and arranges whatever other gifts there are of charismata; and thus make the Lord’s Church everywhere, and in all, perfected and completed.”(A.D.258) It’s amazing how far the church in our modern world is removed from the Bible. Please listen to this sermon prayerfully!!!!! If a generation ever needed to be Holy Ghost filled it must be today.
