God bless you.  This is a great site and an even greater discussion.  May God anoint you with the power you are entitled to when you are obedient to His word.

There isn't enough teaching on the Holy Spirit. Many of us don't know what the Spirit actually is let alone the power of it.

I have two major concerns in regards to the general understanding in the Church today of the work and evidence of the Holy Spirit in our lives. The first being that the work of the Holy Spirit has been trivialized by some by placing the emphasis on speaking in tongues. Some Christians say "THE" evidence of the Holy Spirit is speaking in tongues. My second concern is what I perceive to be the ignoring of the Holy Spirit by some Christians in their lives and/or ministries. This is a subject that has concerned me for nearly as long as I have been a Christian.

Speaking in tongues is a real manifestation of the Holy Spirit, but it is not "THE" evidence of the Holy Spirit in your life. The emphasis should never be placed on speaking in tongues. As a matter of fact, as you read 1 Corinthians 14, you cannot help but come away with the feeling that speaking in tongues is, at best, the LEAST of all God's gifts. Nonetheless, I along with the Apostle Paul wish that all would speak in tongues. When it comes to my weakness, and when words begin to fail me -- I thank God for tongues.

Now to address my second concern of ignoring the Holy Spirit in our lives and/or ministry. Let me take you to Acts 1:4-5, "And gathering them together, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the Father had promised, ‘Which,' He said, ‘you heard of from Me; for John baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.'" In these verses, Jesus commands His disciples not to leave Jerusalem, but wait for the Holy Spirit.

When we seek to be God's witness to someone, and/or seek to make disciples, we gather all kinds of books and other material ourselves for help -- but do we wait on the Holy Spirit? Have we gotten so wrapped up in the techniques of witnessing, and discipleship, that we do not even think about asking the Holy Spirit to empower us anymore? When we go out to witness to others, do we concentrate on the witnessing handbook, or the Holy Spirit? Is your church lacking? Do you look for a consultant to tell you how to grow the church, or do you look for the Holy Spirit to guide your pastor, leaders and members? It is important that we ask ourselves these questions or, as we will see, without the Holy Spirit all of our efforts will be in vain.

Even John the Baptist had to be filled with the Holy Spirit in order to prepare the way for the Lord through the baptism of repentance. The road to Jesus can only be paved with repentance. There is no other way to get to God!

Have you ever been around some people, and for no reason at all, they hated you; just your presence made them uncomfortable? Well, that's evidence of the Holy Spirit being with you, and on you, because it's the Holy Spirit's job to make them uncomfortable -- to convict them of sin, hopefully unto salvation and it doesn't have to be anything you say or do. In Acts 6:15 & 7:1-60, Stephen with a face of an angel, and filled with the Holy Spirit, caused the council to be cut to the quick, and they began gnashing their teeth. In this case, the evidence of Stephen being filled with the Holy Spirit was their hatred of Stephen unto his death. Yet in reality the council were not gnashing their teeth at Stephen, but at the Holy Spirit. If you are really, truly being obedient and prayerful and your relationships are suffering, ask God to reveal the reason . . .

Sorry, you can't chat.  It's just a board for posting and responding to messages. Sometimes you might be online the same time as another poster and get immediate responses, though.  Keep posting, we need more participation.  Thanks for your support.

What seems right to man will eventually bring death, but with the Holy Spirit's leading -- the truth makes men free.

Only the Holy Spirit could have saved three thousand souls on the day of Pentecost. That's the evidence of the Holy Spirit I want to see in my life.

What would have happened had Moses tried to figure out what was needed to accomplish God’s command? One of the biggest arithmetical miracles in the world was required in the desert. Moses led the people of Israel into the desert….Now what was he going to do with them? They had to be fed, and feeding 3-1/2 million people required a lot of food. According to the U. S. Army’s Quartermaster General, Moses needed 1500 tons of food a day, filling two freight trains, each a mile long. Besides, you must remember, they were cooking the food. Just for cooking this took 4000 tons of firewood and a few more freight trains, each a mile long and this is only for one day (not to mention for keeping warm, and if anyone tells you it doesn’t get cold in the desert don’t believe them!). They were for forty YEARS in transit!!! Let’s not forget about water, shall we? If they only had enough to drink and wash a few dishes (no bathing?!), it took 11,000,000 gallons EACH DAY--enough to fill a train of tanker cars 1800 miles long. And another thing! They had to get across the red sea in one night. Now if they went on a narrow path, double file, the line would be 800 miles long and require 35 days and nights to complete the crossing. So to get it over in one night there had to be a space in the Red Sea 3 miles wide so that they could walk 5,000 abreast. Think about this; every time they camped at the end of the day, a camp ground the size of Rhode Island was required, or 750 square miles. Do you think that Moses sat down and figured out the logistics of what God told him to do before he set out from Egypt? I doubt it. He had faith that God would take care of everything. Let us have courage, we share the very same God! Source unknown

The Holy Spirit is available to all, but receiving it is not done through experience, devotion or prayers of repentance. It is gained by waiting on God's promise. Read Acts 2:38-39

It doesn't come through people's efforts or spiritual achievement and especially not through ability to shout, rant, and rave, but by the will of God.

Some people think the Holy Spirit makes a sound like the wind blowing when it occurs. This misunderstanding comes from confusion over the Word. That sound coming from some, may actually be a demon working on their soul pretending to be the Holy Spirit. Some people think they can receive it through begging, but that's not true either. God says we are destroyed by lack of knowledge in Hosea; and the first thing we need to know to receive the Holy Spirit is the Truth of the Word.

The Holy Spirit eventually exposes people who are not real, but even then it is not our place to judge. If people were REALLY in tune with the Holy Spirit, there would be a lot less confusion in the world, especially the church. We could be having discussions like this one instead of talking about others and who won American Idol.

I need help, so I read the Bible and look for information that will feed my spirit. I don't know why more people don't use sites like this. Do the church members even know they have it? The Holy Spirit probably led someone to create it.
