Receive the gift of the Holy Spirit!

"And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance" Acts 2:4 KJV.

What does this mean?

Speaking in tongues is a demonstration of the wonderful works of God, indicating that these are the last days, "saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh...before that great and notable day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved" Acts 2:17-21

God publicly endorsed the ministry of Jesus by by miracles, wonders and signs, which he did through him. In our days God also said he will cause extraordinary proofs to happen, some unusual signs of course, before that great and notable day of the Lord arrives. But do not be misled, not all would be of God.

"Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant" Paul says, I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying. He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church" (ref: 1 Corinthians 14:4-5).

Speaking in tongues is not the only evidence that you are filled with the Holy Spirit, "For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will" 1 Corinthians 12:8-11.

Paul said, desire spiritual gifts; "Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues" 1 Corinthians 14:39.

As soon as Jesus was crucified, he died and rose again to life, and ascended in heaven, and being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he poured out upon us.

But, we know also, that these are the last days, that antichrist will come, even now are there many antichrists, "For many deceivers are entered into the world....This is a deceiver and an antichrist" 2 John 1:7. We know them because they transgressed, and they abide not in the doctrine of Christ. Beware of evil men, beware of the man of sin. "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world" 1 John 4:1. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

What should we do?

"Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call" Acts 2:37-39.

Christ promised the Holy Spirit to each one of us, we need to just ask and receive this gift of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus is Rejected at Nazareth!

Then Jesus left the wilderness of Judea, where Satan tempted him for forty days, and " returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and news of Him went out through all the surrounding region. And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all. So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read. " Luke 4:14-16 NKJV. Before, full of the Holy Spirit, he spent forty days in the wilderness being tempted by the devil, and now he returns to Galilee, in the power of the Spirit to begin his ministry. He taught in other synagogues, being glorified by all, but here in Nazareth, where He was brought up, is rejected. They handed to him the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written: " The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To

Who are you really working for?

I’m here to help you figure out who you’re really working for, because if you know you will provide great service for him/her, or them, no matter what you do, you need to know who they are and what they’re looking for. Someone is saying I am working for God, but that could be a blanket statement my friend because working for God means feeding His lambs, and is how you offer His sheep the best service possible. For some of us it is more clear cut than for others. I can’t tell you who you are working for, it would be wrong to assume that you’re serving God, men or yourself, etc, but I can help you identify who you’re really working for, and how you can do it with all of your heart if you find it well. Why we serve! We serve God for different reasons, but the work of the Lord couldn’t be same as the work of men or of the world. His is light, with no darkness at all - pure religion! The angel said to the church in Thyatira, “‘ These things says the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of

The Wedding at Cana

This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him, John 2:11 KJV. The first time Jesus performed a miracle (revealed his glory) was at a wedding in Cana. Jesus' mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the celebration. Wine ran out, and Jesus' mother told him, " They have no more wine ." She went to him anticipating a miracle, and Jesus said, " Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come " John 2:4. But she tells the servants anyway, " Whatever He says to you, do it ."  This you should also know my friend, tell him your need anyway, and " Do whatever he tells you ." But be fully aware of the divine timing also. The timing by which waters are stirred up or the spirit moves is set by the Father. Jesus said to them, " Fill the waterpots with water. " And they filled them up to the brim. And He said to them, " Dr
