Blessings to the Body of Christ,

 

I pray that new ministries are being created and the fruits of your ministry have led others to discipleship.  We must continue to pray that others may come to see the deception of false doctrine, denominations and religion, which are created and exists as an excuse and deterrent from having a direct and accountable relationship with God. Our lives must show others how to live as spiritual beings and how to acknowledge the power and presence of the Holy Spirit within them.

He, the Holy Spirit (the Holy Ghost) is always with us because of the sacrifice and salvation of Jesus Christ. The Holy Ghost is the strength and power of the Gospel, the Rock upon which Christ built His church; sent to purify us and make us whole; sent to draw us into the Kingdom and graft us onto the Vine.

Can man make anything Holy? Can man create fertile ground? Can man bring repentance? As disciples, our work becomes fruitless, impotent and in vain without the Holy Ghost. As with Simon, the sorcerer, we see that some people may believe, they may be baptized, but there is no change. There is no change because they receive under their own will, conditions and pride, when it is not their will that must be done, but God's will. We have read in Acts 8:14-23

 

 

14 Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:

 

15 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:

 

16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)

 

17 Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.

 

18 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,

 

19 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.

 

20 But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.

 

21 Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.

 

22 Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.

 

23 For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.

 

 

Today, the world is filled with so much bitterness and the shackles of bondage have been tightened to keep God's people in sin and bondage. As we spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we must be aware that more is required of us to free God's people. Yes, we can sit back and wait upon the Lord and trust the wonder working power of His Holy Spirit. Yes, we believe that His light will shine through us and His power will penetrate the stone walls built up around the hearts of others, remove the scales from their eyes to see their sin and repent.  We want to believe that once others have accepted the Lamb of God, sacrificed for their salvation, they will live in the fullness, abundance and everlasting life promised to them. Yes, belief is needed...patience is needed, also.

 

Yet, God told the apostles at Jerusalem that something else was needed for the Samarians who believed, so, they sent Peter and John to them. The Samarians had been in bondage to idol worshiping and sin for a long time. Action was needed so the seeds scattered would take root. Peter and John took action and prayed for the Holy Ghost to come upon the Samarians.

Will we allow our seed to be blown away, snatched, trampled, wither and die, or will we take action to loose the Holy Spirit to fall upon others? Will we take action: by the laying on of hands; through prayers of supplication, words of edification and exhortation; by walking in the Light and experiencing His miraculous power; by speaking and praying things into existence; by living in the Kingdom to show others the Kingdom; and by humbling ourselves to die daily and live in Christ that we may follow and serve? Upon this Holy Day, this is my prayer for me and the body of Christ. Let us take action with love and faith to increase the Kingdom through the power of the Holy Ghost.


The Holy Ghost is our embedded connection with God, to empower us, that we may empower others. All praise, glory and honor be to God, our Father, who continues to love us so much, having given His only begotten Son up to the cross, so that today, He lives in us and we by faith can abide in Him.

 

When someone asks, “What is God telling you today?” We can answer because we have direct access to the Good Shepherd. We are His sheep and we know His voice. There is no question of who He is, because He is the same today, as He was yesterday.

 

Pray for me as I pray for you. As we serve and worship, let it be in spirit and in truth, so that the power of the Holy Ghost may enlighten and transform, creating a new being in Christ.

 

By the Grace and Mercy of God,

 

Your servant
