The Pentecostal Experience, the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues was promised to all those who OBEY Jesus Christ, who REPENT and are baptized in water and who seek to follow Jesus Christ. The promise is to ALL who seriously want to follow Jesus Christ. It is the BEGINNING of our walk with Christ because we need the Holy Spirit guidance to be able to follow Jesus Christ and to do what He commands us to do, to do the WORKS that He prepared for us to do in His kingdom.
The problem with most Pentecostals is that once they receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit they believe that they have a guarantee of salvation and they never become DISCIPLES of Jesus Christ, they never FOLLOW Him. They never do the works that He prepared for them to do and that is why most of them will PERISH.
The baptism in the Holy Spirit is only the START of our walk with Jesus Christ, AFTER repentance, after being baptized in water and being filled with the Holy Spirit, only then are we ready to start following Jesus Christ because through the Holy Spirit baptism we come into relationship with Jesus Christ.
Most Pentecostals do not follow after the Holy Spirit, they follow after men and their own spirit and they put up a show. They disgrace the Holy Spirit of God, they make a mockery of God because they do not do the works of God.
We read in the book of Acts that after the apostles received the baptism in the Holy Spirit they went out under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and in the POWER of the Holy Spirit and they preached the gospel of Jesus Christ with signs and wonders, those signs and wonders that He promised would follow for those who obey Him. Most Pentecostals never started following Jesus Christ. They never became DISCIPLES.
Those who are LED by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. We need to be FILLED with the Holy Spirit, baptized in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues and we have to pray IN THE SPIRIT, be led by the Holy Spirit and follow the Holy Spirit where He guides us, not follow men. We have to follow Jesus Christ , listen, obey and do what He prepared for us to do. He called us to DUTY, to SERVICE in His kingdom and we need the guidance of the indwelling Holy Spirit to be able to do those works that He called us to do, to bear fruit in His kingdom. Without Jesus Christ we can do nothing. Without His Spirit we cannot DO those things that are pleasing to Him because we have no guidance. We need the Holy Spirit INFILLING and the GUIDANCE of the Holy Spirit to bear fruit for the kingdom of God.
May Jesus bless you.
Jesus Christ promised the baptism in the Holy Spirit to all those who BELIEVE the gospel and who OBEY Him, who REPENT and who are BAPTIZED IN WATER. We need the Holy Spirit to be able to follow and obey Jesus Christ . The Holy Spirit is the INDWELLING PRESENCE of Jesus Christ in out lives and we have to receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit and FOLLOW the GUIDANCE of the Holy Spirit to be able to DO the WORKS that Jesus Christ prepared for us to do, to be able to SERVE Him and be part of His kingdom.
The PROOF that you have received the baptism in the Holy Spirit is that you WILL speak in tongues as also the first believers did who received the baptism in the Holy Spirit on the day oi Pentecost and there after. If you have received the baptism in the Holy Spirit you will be able to pray in tongues at any time at will. It is your COMMUNICATION with God, praying mysteries in your spirit and the Spirit of God praying with your spirit to God.
If you have not received the ability to pray in tongues then you have not been baptized in the Holy Spirit yet and you need to SEEK Jesus, OBEY Him, EARNESTLY seek the baptism in the Holy Spirit.
We read in Mark 16:15,16 Jesus Christ said that for those who believed and were baptized certain signs would follow. One of those is that they would speak in other tongues. Jesus Christ never changed. Those signs WILL follow for those who BELIEVE, OBEY and FOLLOW Jesus Christ. If those signs are not following it is because we do not believe., we have not received the Holy Spirit and we are not following Jesus Christ.
Seek Jesus, seek the truth, seek the baptism, in the Holy Spirit, be filled with the Spirit, follow and OBEY Jesus Christ. Stay with Him until the very end. We need the Holy Spirit and we need the guidance of the Holy Spirit, every moment, to experience the presence and the power and the kingdom of God.
Have you received the baptism in the Holy spirit? Are you living in the presence of the living God? Do you truly KNOW and follow Jesus Christ?
May Jesus bless you.
The world believes in many Gods but it does not know the REAL God, the TRUE God, the God of the Bible. Sadly most Christians also do not know the true God of the Bible, they do not know Jesus Christ, because they do not OBEY Him. They DENY Him, they disobey His words.
If we OBEY the words of Jesus Christ He will REVEAL Himself to us as He promised. He promised the Holy Spirit, His own Spirit to those who OBEY Him and those who OBEY Him will truly get to KNOW Him as GOD. They will have revelation from Him. Jesus Christ reveals Himself in, to, and through those who obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, His words as recorded in the gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Those who repent from their evil ways and who are baptized in water, who go after Jesus Christ with all their heart, He baptizes them in the Holy Spirit as first happened on the day of Pentecost that we read about in the book of Acts. Most believers have not received the Holy Spirit and that is why they do not KNOW Jesus Christ . He is not revealed in and through them because they refuse to obey Him.
They refuse to repent, they refuse to stop sinning, they refuse to go after Jesus Christ, they refuse to be holy, they refuse to be baptized in water. They deny and reject Jesus Christ and that is why they do not know Him.
If we obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, repent, be baptized in water and go after Jesus, seek Him with all our heart, He will FILL us with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. He will give us heavenly tongues with which to worship and praise God. that is the EVIDENCE of receiving the baptism in the Holy Spirit but most Christians in their own wisdom DENY the Spirit of God. They deny Jesus Christ and that is why they do not know Him. If we obey Him and seek Him we will find Him and we will KNOW Him because He will reveal Himself to us and in us.
Do you know God? Do you KNOW Jesus Christ? Is He revealed IN and THROUGH you? Are you the LIGHT in the world, this dark world where people do not have hope because they do not know God? Do you have HOPE because you know God, because you know Jesus? Do you KNOW the living God, Jesus Christ?
May Jesus bless you.
The world has lost it’s conscience and also it’s consciousness of God. People have no natural love or compassion, they don’t care for others. They don’t know what LOVE is. They are selfish and self-satisfying. Even Christians have no conscience. They have lost their awareness of God. They have no communication with God. It is because their sin separates them from God. they are totally deprived. Their minds are evil. That is why we need to be born again to be part of the kingdom of God. If we are not born again of the Spirit if God we have an EVIL MIND. Most Christians have an evil mind, sinful mind. They justify their sinful minds with psychological arguments and back it up with Bible verses. They do not have the Spirit of God. They are filled with malice and hatred, self-pity, murder, immorality, everything that is wicked. We need a NEW HEART to be able to communicate with God, to come into His presence and to be part of the kingdom of God.
We can only have that NEW HEART that new attitude, that new frame of mind if we invite Jesus Christ into our lives and we turn away from wickedness, if we embrace Jesus Christ and repent of all sin, repent of selfishness and worldliness and submit ourselves to Jesus Christ. He will change us, He will make us NEW inside. We have to OBEY Him and turn our back on the world, on that which is wicked and sinful and invite Jesus Christ into our lives, live holy and righteous, be baptized in water and invite His Spirit, the Holy Spirit into us, into our hearts. Say:”Lord fill me with Your Spirit, with Your love, with Your knowledge, with Your truth so that I can be different, so that I can be part of the kingdom of God.”
Without Jesus Christ we cannot do it. But Jesus will not force us. We have to SEEK Him, we have to SEEK LIFE and we have to reject evil. We have to reject the corruption that is in us and embrace Jesus Christ by our own will. We have to go after Him and keep ourselves pure and holy so that His Spirit can dwell in us. If we embrace wickedness the Spirit of God will leave us and we will be in darkness. Seek Jesus with all your heart. Invite Him into your life, reject evil, obey Jesus Christ, repent, be baptized, seek the INFILLING with the Holy Spirit and preserve yourself for Jesus Christ. Keep yourself pure and holy and let Him dwell in you or else you will also perish like the rest of this world that is doomed. Seek Jesus now before it is for ever too late.
May Jesus bless you.
Very few people who profess to be serious Christians are real followers of Jesus Christ. Most of them are just like Christmas trees. They are religiously decorated but they are fruitless and useless, they are DEAD. They are spiritually DEAD because they do not know Jesus Christ, neither do they follow and obey Him. They are DECORATED, they look like Christians, they have got all the trinkets, they have got Bibles and the attributes, they go to church, they participate in the religious activities and outwardly the world sees them as Christians but they are not followers of Jesus Christ. They are just for SHOW. They are not for real.
The real and true followers of Jesus Christ follow Him every day. They obey His words, they live in holiness and in righteousness. They bear fruit because they are in Christ. They are LIKE Jesus Christ. They speak the words of Christ and they go where He sends them, they do what He tells them to do and therefor they BEAR FRUIT. They bring others to Jesus Christ. They are ALIVE. They are ALIVE and fruitful for the kingdom of God.
Most professing Christians are just for show and they are deceived. They believe that they are saved because they conform to a FORM OF GODLINESS, a PICTURE of Christianity that they themselves have created but they have no relationship with Jesus Christ. They are not led by the Holy Spirit and they do not DO the works of Christ. They do the works of the flesh and they run after the IMAGE of a Christian, that has been created in the minds of those who are deceived and who are PERISHING.
Have we met the REAL Jesus Christ? Are we conformed to His likeness? Have we been changed from dead fake trees to LIVE fruit bearing trees in the kingdom of God. Do we bear the fruits of righteousness, holiness and obedience to Jesus Christ? Are we IN relationship with Him and DOING the works that He prepared for us to do? Or are we just decorative trees, Christmas trees, false,fake Christians like the majority of those who profess to be children of God but they are children of satan because they do the works of the devil?
Let us not deceive ourselves but follow the REAL Jesus and become like Him. Seek to be pleasing to Him and not conform to the world, not to be like the worldly Christmas tree Christians that are doomed and that will perish, that will be burned up like discarded Christmas tree.
Follow Jesus, obey Him and DO what He requires of you. Come ALIVE and be REAL, be a child of God.
May Jesus bless you.
Jesus Christ is the only Savior of the world but the world rejects Jesus Christ and that is why it is in the state that it is in. Even Christians reject Jesus Christ. They disobey Him, they refuse Him, they deny Him and that is why they will perish. Jesus Christ is the SOLE SOLUTION, He can fix every problem but the world does not want Him and the world does not obey Him.
Embrace Jesus, seek Him with all your heart, obey Him and become part of His kingdom or else you have no hope, you have no future and you will perish. Without Jesus Christ we can do nothing.
Many people think that can pray things right. Many Christians see what is happening in the world and they say:”Let us pray.” But they are still living in sin. They disobey Jesus Christ, He is not hearing their prayers.
If we come to Jesus, we come on His terms. We repent, are baptized in water, we commit to obey Him and then He will answer our prayers, He will reveal Himself to us but if we disobey Him and we disregard Him, He will also disregard us. Jesus Christ answers the prayers of those who earnestly seek Him, who humble themselves before Him because He is the GREAT KING, He is LORD, He is GOD ALMIGHTY. Give Him the honor that is due to Him, RESPECT Him, FEAR Him, OBEY Him, let Him be your LORD and He will take care of you. But if you reject Him and deny Him He will ignore you and deny you also. Jesus Christ IS the SOLE SOLUTION but we have to bow down before Him and serve Him, respect Him as Lord. Obey Jesus and you will LIVE, disregard Him and you will perish.
May Jesus bless you.
Sin separates us from God. We have all sinned and we come short of the glory of God and that is why the world is separated from God and doomed to eternal damnation. The only way to be saved is to be delivered of the guilt of our sin and to then come into the presence of God and stay with Him for eternity.
The only way that we can get rid of the guilt of our sin and come into the presence of God is through Jesus Christ, through OBEYING Jesus. We must REPENT, turn away from sin, turn away from going our own ways, TURN to Jesus, plead Him forgiveness for our past sin and He will cleanse us of all unrighteousness. Then we have to further OBEY Him and be baptized in water as a confession of our faith in Jesus Christ and our commitment to follow and obey Him. And then a wonderful thing will happen, He will make us NEW inside. We will be BORN AGAIN to be children of God. He will give His Spirit to come and dwell in us. He promised to baptize us in the Holy Spirit so that the Spirit of Christ will dwell in us and connect us with God, with Jesus Christ Himself and we can be in communion, in relationship with Jesus Christ, but we have to STAY with Him, LISTEN to the Holy Spirit, OBEY Him, FOLLOW Him, be pure and holy and He will guide us into all truth. He will teach us all things because we will live in the presence of God. That is the only way to be saved.
The world believes lies. They have been told that if they only believe in Jesus Christ they will be saved. We have to BELIEVE and OBEY His words, the gospel of Jesus Christ, that which He commanded, that which was also recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and it was fulfilled in the book of Acts when the Holy Spirit was given to those who OBEYED the gospel of Jesus Christ. They were filled with the Holy Spirit and went on to follow Jesus Christ under guidance of the Holy Spirit.
Are you being SAVED? Did you OBEY the gospel of Jesus Christ? Did you repent? Were you baptized in water and did you receive the Holy Spirit as also the first believers did? Do you LISTEN to the Holy Spirit? Do you OBEY and FOLLOW Him? Do you live in the presence of God? Are you BEING SAVED?
Stay with Jesus. Endure with Him until the very end. Listen, obey and follow Him and you will be saved.
May Jesus bless you.
