Topic: WHAT THE HOLY SPIRIT DOES

God wrote the Bible for every person. Every believer inevery denomination has a right to know what God has given the mass  members of His church. None are to be denied the power of the Living God in this dark generation in which we are living.

All God’s children have a right to know and experience God’s power.
Jesus spoke in the first chapter of Acts about the power of the Holy Spirit. We need to believe what the Lord Jesus says. Do not make void the Word and commandment of God by what your religious tradition says.

God is wanting to pour out a mighty revival of the power of the Lord Jesus that restores the church to what it has lost through the centuries.

Jesus spoke clearly about being born of the Spirit. He said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdomof God”
(John 3:5).

Jesus also talked as clearly about being baptized in the Holy Spirit, about receiving the power of God, in the verses I
quoted previously. When He said, “You shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit,” He was not stating a doctrine for any
particular denomination. This is simply a Christian doctrine, a command of Jesus, who is the Supreme Head of the church.
Just because we are born of the Spirit in salvation does not mean we do not need Jesus to baptize us in the Holy Spirit.
Just because you get a “well” of salvation does not mean that you do not need to be baptized by the Lord Jesus Christ and
have “rivers of living water” flowing out of you to a needy world (John 4:14; 7:38).

In salvation, the Holy Spirit does something to you. He regenerates your spirit and makes you a new creation. Every
believer in Jesus has the presence of the Holy Spirit in their spirit. “Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is
not His” (Romans 8:9). Every believer has the Holy Spirit witnessing with his spirit that he is a child of God (Romans
8:16).

In the baptism of the Holy Spirit, Jesus does something to you. John the Baptist declared, “I indeed baptize you with
water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I amnot worthy to carry. He will
baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire” (Matthew 3:11). You should not be afraid of what Jesus will do to you or for you.
