In Today’s world, many are confused about The Bible Teachings of The Holy Spirit.
When did The Holy Spirit first come upon Believers? This confusion has led to much trouble in the Body of Christ.
Today’s work of The Holy Spirit is grieved by many, because of misunderstandings of Him and how He
Perhaps one of the most misunderstood Bible truths, is the Baptism of The Holy Spirit.
In the Church today, there are great battles being fought with the devil, “the prince of the
power of the air.”
Notice I said, “power of the air.” The enemy of God has his “power” and he wants to keep The Church of The Living God — powerless!
Throughout many years, since Jesus commanded in Luke 24,:
“…. Tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high” Luke 24:49b
Much confusion has surrounded these “words of Jesus.” What did Jesus really mean by this command?
Is it so complicated that great men have stumbled over it, or is it “obscured from understanding” by
the arch-deceiver himself, to deliberately attempt to stop the advancement of God’s Church?
You will discover, as you study The Truth about this Bible Doctrine, clearly and carefully taught so that even a child could understand it.
I do not hesitate in the smallest degree nor shrink from this subject, just because of the great controversy surrounding it.
I will be true to the principles of true Bible study, and expound upon this truth, comparing scripture with scripture.
I will rightly divide the Word of God, being careful not to twist the Scripture.
I believe that this is one of the most important studies any Christian can undertake, because if he is wrong in his belief about this important subject, then he is rendered powerless, and fails in his witness to lost mankind.
Jesus said that the purpose of this “Baptism of The Holy Spirit” was for power to be witnesses.
In another study to be added later, I have listed “My Own Testimony” about and experience of the difficult path I personally have come over before Receiving myself the Baptism with The Holy Spirit.
I have received personal Spirit Teaching and encountered much that The Holy Spirit has taught me…. as I have come “out of the desert” of confusion.
Many people do not even believe in the present work of The Holy Spirit because they have been led to believe in the false teaching that certain Spirit work has ceased after the death of the Apostles and is no longer even offered to the Believer today. [Cessation Doctrine of Man – Look for another study coming soon about what the Cessation teaching is and why it is so wrong.]
I am like the Apostle Paul when he said concerning where he received his understanding, and degree in the knowledge of these things when he said:
”But I certify you, brethren, that the truths I have received IS NOT AFTER MAN. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST.” (Galatians 1:1-11)
The Holy Spirit is a Person, and His Work today is very real. (Please understand that without The Spirit we do not receive Revelation Knowledge.)
He is the teacher, guide, and Comforter of all Believers, and will teach all things he has heard The LORD say.
“But the Comforter, which is The Holy Ghost, whom The Father will send in My Name — He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” John 14:26
All must understand that The Holy Spirit REVEALS the Scripture and that “Natural men” do not receive because they have no Spirit understanding. See: 1 Corinthians 2.
“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” 1 Corinthians 2:9-14
It should be noted then that the Baptism with The Holy Spirit is entirely necessary to move and work in the Power of The Holy Spirit which comes in greater enablement when the Baptism is received.
Without the Baptism then it will be most difficult to fully be witness to the Lost World in an effectual way.
