The Word of God says in Joel 2:28 “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.” This is a promise from God, the Father to all who are open to receive.
These are those days on the earth. On the day of Pentecost, His Holy Spirit came to us. He made Himself available for all mankind to receive power from on high. He did His part.
Now what do we do with it? We receive just as we did our salvation. By grace through faith.
Simply by asking Him to fills us with His Holy Spirit. Yes, it’s that simple!
We need the power of the Holy Spirit to lead us and guide us through life and into our destiny, in order to fulfill our assignment here on this earth.
The book of Acts 1:8 tells us, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” This is for all who believe, not just a handful of people nearly two thousand years ago. We need the power in order to go into all the world.
You may not be called to travel around the world preaching, but you’ve been given an assignment to be a witness wherever you are. You need the leading, strength and comfort of the Holy Spirit to accomplish it.
If you haven’t received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, now is the time to do so. Just ask, by faith, to be filled to overflowing with His power and with a heavenly prayer language.
Your life will never be the same!
Occasionally Pastors Eric and Laura will write as the Lord leads them. There may be prophetic words or insights and revelation that have come to them. They share these with the intention that someone would be blessed and encouraged or admonished, something we all need once in a while.
