Jesus never intended for His church to be powerless or penniless. [Luke 24:49; Acts 1:1-26] Just as the tithe is the Lord’s provision for material supply, so the baptism in the Spirit is His provision for supernatural supply. Neither is forced on anyone, but when believers come into obedience, watch out! The “windows of heaven” open wide! Through the baptism in the Spirit, Jesus pours out gifts that will manifest as signs and wonders for the sake of ministry to someone He wants to bless. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Doing Ministry There’s nothing like doing the thing, especially when what we are doing is something we can be sure that Jesus is doing right along with us! The real Minister, the true Servant, is there on the inside wanting to get out into that hurting, lost world through us His chosen vessels. The secret to kingdom success is letting Him do ministry through you. Practice His presence as you learn "The Care of Souls," "The Art of Listening," "The Heart of a Servant," and "How to Give Talks and Lead Ministry."
Scriptures on Ministry audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
'So we, numerous as we are, are one body in Christ (the Messiah) and individually we are parts one of another [mutually dependent on one another]. Having gifts (faculties, talents, qualities) that differ according to the grace given us, let us use them: [He whose gift is] prophecy, [let him prophesy] according to the proportion of his faith; [He whose gift is] practical service, let him give himself to serving; he who teaches, to his teaching; He who exhorts (encourages), to his exhortation; he who contributes, let him do it in simplicity and liberality; he who gives aid and superintends, with zeal and singleness of mind; he who does acts of mercy, with genuine cheerfulness and joyful eagerness. [Let your] love be sincere (a real thing); hate what is evil [loathe all ungodliness, turn in horror from wickedness], but hold fast to that which is good. Romans 12:5-9 AMP
In summary, God The Holy Spirit. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
We believe the third Person of the Godhead is the Person of the Holy Spirit [Acts 5:3,4]. We believe that God the Holy Spirit is every Christian's Teacher and Guide in life [John 14:26], and that His role is that first of a Convictor of sin, and Convincer of 'righteousness' [John 16:8-11], then that of Comforter [John 14:16], and Intercessor when a Christian prays [Rom 8:26,27]. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
The Holy Spirit provides gifts to born again Christians for the distinct purpose of winning people to Jesus Christ, and the edification of the local church [Acts 8:20; Romans 1:11; 11:29; 12:6-8; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31; Corinthians 13:2, 8, 27-31; 14:1,12; Ephesians 4:7, 8, 11,12; 1 Timothy 4:14; 2 Timothy 1:6; Hebrews 2:4; 1 Peter 4:10,11]. He is the 'power' through which we are 'in Jesus'. [John 14:19-21]. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Thank you in advance for returning, September 19, 2019, when as the Lord wills, we will continue and finish our studies, looking at the 'manifestation gifts'. Continue to be encouraged, in the Lord! Amen. Amen.
