I am led to teach a Series of Lessons on the Subject of Speaking in Tongues. This is the beginning study.
Many today are not receiving and they are really wondering around confused. I hate to say Lost because I do not want to be misunderstood that I am saying they are not saved even or they do not know Jesus. This is not what I am saying. A person can be very much saved and on their way to heaven and still be Lost [confused and wondering as if they did not even know the way].
I am teaching something here that I believe will give some who read it a GOOD SHAKING IN THE SPIRIT. IT WILL JAR THEM. IT WILL IMPACT THEM! I believe that this will
SET MANY ON THE ROAD OF SEARCHING TO FIND A…… MISSING PART.
Many have set out on a Journey not fully equipped for their Trip. They have left behind a very badly provision that is needed to KEEP THEM AWAKE AND TO FOLLOWING THE RIGHT ROAD. The Road ahead of them [the moment they become a Child of the Most High God] is winding through a SPIRITUAL LAND and only those who are EQUIPPED FOR THE TRIP will fully travel it and do so successfully. Many have not put the….
FIRST THINGS FIRST.
When leaving on a Long Trip in your car there are a number of things you will of necessity do. You need to realize that First and Foremost you will need to SERVICE YOUR AUTOMOBILE with proper Gasoline and Oil. You will need to have plenty of Gas to take you the first leg of the trip, and it could be very detrimental to your car and the trip if the Oil is low in the engine. If the oil is low than the motor cold very easily overheat and be destroyed; than you would be stuck on the side of the road. You will need to Check your Transmission Fluid to make sure it is full or else the bands will slip and the transmission could burn up. I think when you read this you will know to what I am speaking. It will not be hard for you to grasp my meaning here. IF YOU BEGIN UNPREPARED FOR THE TRIP YOU COULD NEVER FINISH IT SUCCESSFULLY. YOU COULD BE WALKING HOME.
Well that is the way the Christian Life is now that you are Saved. YOU COULD BE WALKING HOME…. LIMPING….. AND HURT if you do not do THE FIRST THINGS FIRST.
Well what is the First thing following Salvation itself? Now that you are Saved and Born Again NOW WHAT? What do you need now, now that you are saved? Many people art telling you that being Born Again is all you need. Well I will agree that to be Born Again is all you need to Get to Heaven or be acceptable to the Lord when he comes back to earth someday. IT IS THE PLACE ALL MUST BEGIN. Your salvation Journey is like buying the car to make the trip. You must have a Car to travel, so it is that YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN TO START.
But what I am talking about here is the NEXT STEP.
What is the NEXT STEP to take. There used to be a old song that had a line that said…. The NEXT STEP YOU TAKE COULD BE ON STREETS OF PUREST GOLD. Well the step I am talking about is NOT stepping over into Glory and walking on Streets of Gold, yet that is a further step we all are longing for but what I am saying is….. A GOLDEN STEP. It is the most precious of the Treasure Chest of Gods Provisions. IT IS HIS GOLDEN TREASURE RESERVED JUST FOR ALL WHO ARE HIS.
Well what is it Ken? What is the FIRST OF THE FIRST STEPS that you must take to be successful on this Journey of Life with Jesus? What is the GOLDEN WAY you speak of?
Well let me say this, this way was spoken of by Jesus Himself JUST BEFORE HE LEFT TO RETURN TO HEAVEN. He was standing at the moments before he would be Taken up and Disappear in a Cloud into heaven. HE WAITED TO GIVE THIS MOST IMPORTANT INSTRUCTION. He wanted it to be remembered so he said it moments before he left ON PURPOSE FOR ALL TO HEAR. He said:
“4. And being assembled together with them, COMMANDED THEM…. [***NOTICE THIS NEXT COMMAND…] … THAT THEY SHOULD NOT LEAVE JERUSALEM, BUT WAIT FOR THE PROMISE OF THE FATHER, which , saith he, you have heard of me.
5. For John truly baptized with water; but YE SHALL BE BAPTIZED WITH THE HOLY GHOST NOT MANY DAYS HENCE.”
continuing in verse….
“8. But ye shall receive POWER, after that THE HOLY GHOST SHALL COME UPON YOU: and you shall be WITNESSES UNTO ME both in Jerusalem, and in the uttermost part of the Earth” (ACTS 1:4-5 and 8).
Jesus had brought them all UP form the condemnation of the Law and for the first time in the history of man, men stood FORGIVEN AND RECEIVED in the FINISHED WORK OF HIS CROSS. They were Born Again and had CROSSED OVER from sin to salvation. They had received the Blessed Holy Spirit Comforter that Jesus brought back to them and gave them when He breathed INTO them in the Upper Room of His Spirit. They had their EYES OPENED TO SEE AND UNDERSTAND for the first time such as never before. The Old Testament Saints where delivered from sacrifices to THE SACRIFICE. They were invaded by his presence in their hearts. There would be no more doubting but now only knowing. They were totally forgiven in his blood.
THEY WERE READY FOR THEIR JOURNEY.
But…. yet He stood that day and ADDED…..
WAIT UNTIL YOUR RECEIVE THE PROMISE OF THE FATHER… YOU WILL RECEIVE … POWER.
Well folks many have come to this Journeys beginning and the road is stretching out before them BUT, THEY HAVE DRIVEN OFF WITHOUT THE POWER. Yes that is right!!! WITHOUT THE POWER.
The Power of the Holy Spirit Baptism that COMES UPON MEN AND THEY RECEIVED THE MORE. More that will be ABSOLUTELY NEEDED in the Trip ahead. I want to ask you a Question,
***HAVE YOU RECEIVED THE HOLY SPIRIT POWER SINCE YOU BELIEVED?
The Scripture says CLEARLY that on the Day of Pentecost that they did RECEIVE THE POWER. This power is described in ACTS 2. It says in verse 3 you will understand what Happened that day..
“3. And there appeared unto them cloven TONGUES OF FIRE, and it SAT UPON EACH OF THEM.
4. And they were ALL FILLED WITH THE HOLY GHOST AND… BEGAN TO SPEAK WITH OTHER TONGUES, AS THE SPIRIT GAVE THEM UTTERANCE” (Acts 2:3-4).
Now it is plain that in the POURING OUT OF THIS POWER… IT MANIFESTED IN SPEAKING IN TONGUES. Well my question to you is
HAVE YOU RECEIVED THE POWER OF TONGUES?
If you haven’t YOU ARE TRAVELLING THE ROAD … AND YOU ARE UNPREPARED FOR THE ROAD AHEAD.
WARNING….. THIS IS A WARNING…. WARNING… T HIS IS A WARNING!!!!!!!!!!!
