12 08 i believe in the holy spirit

  2. 2. Apostle Creed I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth: And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary: Suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, dead and buried: The third day he rose again from the dead: He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty: From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead: I believe in the Holy Spirit: the holy catholic Church: the communion of saints: The forgiveness of sins: The resurrection of the body: and the life everlasting. Amen.
  3. 3. I Believe in the Holy Spirit
  4. 4. BREAKTHROUGH IN EARLY Acts 2:1-4 CHRISTIAN CHURCH A Sound Like a Strong Wind When the Feast of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Without warning there was a sound like a strong wind, gale force––no one could tell where it came from. It filled the whole building. Then, like a wildfire, the Holy Spirit spread through their ranks, and they started speaking in a number of different languages as the Spirit prompted them.
  5. 5. IMPACT OF PENTECOST Pentecost began with an original nucleus of 120 within 24 hrs, 3000 were added when Peter preached Soon, 5000 men plus women and children were added There was great multiplication Religious leaders were converted
  6. 6. Samaritans came to know Christ An Ethiopian was saved entire towns turned to Christ A Roman pro consul believed Large multitudes of Jews and Greeks accepted the faith Churches increased in numbers daily
  7. 7. Prominent women followed Jesus Acts 17:12 The word of God grew mightily and prevailed Acts 18:8 to a point that Paul says that he has no place to preach the gospel anymore and have to go to Outermost part of Asia to preach the gospel. John 14: 12- 14 ' whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do, and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. John 14: 15-21 If I go away, I will send a helper/ comforter, Spirit of Truth.
  8. 8. Lessons from Feast of. Tabernacles John 7:37-39
  9. 9. John 7:37-39 On the final and climactic day of the Feast, Jesus took his stand. He cried out, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Rivers of living water will brim and spill out of the depths of anyone who believes in me this way, just as the Scripture says." (He said this in regard to the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were about to receive. The Spirit had not yet been given because Jesus had not yet been glorified.)
  10. 10. Lessons from Tabernacle Gives life and sustains life in the desert places Gives strength and power in the desert Refreshes Satisfies us with His Goodness and enable us to serve others (Exo 17:6 , Ps 110:3)
  11. 11. Some Honest Questions How many Christians suffer from a spiritual life that is dry and mechanical? How many serve a Jesus whom they know about from the bible but who is not a living reality in their experience? And do we wonder why the Holy Spirit interventions are so rare among our congregations? Could it be that we're missing out on some wonderful blessings planned for our lives and churches because we're not properly acquainted with the person and work of God the Holy Spirit? When church services lack life, do we grasp at so many methods to try to generate excitement?
  12. 12. The Promise of the Holy Spirit “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. 5 For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” ACTS 1:4-5 Acts 1:8 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
  13. 13. THE WORKS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT Holy Spirit Convicts me Jhn 16:8 Holy Spirit guides me Jhn 16:13-15 Holy Spirit comforts me Jhn 14:16 Holy Spirit grants me gifts 1Cor 12 Holy Spirit renews me Titus 3:5 /2Cor4:16
  14. 14. Christ Centred life Empowered by the Holy Spirit Effective prayer life Understand God's Word Experience the fruits of the Holy Spirit Fruitful for Christ
