The job of the enemy is to convince you that the Holy Spirit is weird. The enemy understands the power of the Holy Spirit.
God is not the author of confusion.
The pillars of the church- we neglect to talk about the Holy Spirit.
God says, “I’m about to bring some things out into the open.”
Tongues are a sign.
The word speaks for itself.
During the time that Acts was written, 120 people spoke in a language they had never heard.
God doesn’t choose the best, He chooses the willing. He removed the language barrier to unify the church.
Sometimes you have to stay in the process to get to where God wants you to go.
What if all faiths spoke the same tongue? What if we were a unified church?
The devil isn’t scared of a big church, he’s scared of a UNIFIED church!
Tongues allows you to speak what GOD wants you to say, not what you want to say to God.
Tame your tongues.
1 Corinthians 14:23-25
God wants you to do everything in decency and order. He doesn’t want people to see the church as chaotic.
We want the world to come into the church and experience a God that they’re not scared of.
The Holy Spirit will convict if people need it.
Tongues are a gift.
Do you feel like you’re not enough or like you don’t measure up? God compares you to nobody else. He has a plan only you can execute.
Do you need comforting from the Comforter? Pray to God and ask for what you need. He is the great provider.
Have you ever just not known what to say? The Spirit will make intercessions for you. Prayer language is a language that God can understand but the devil can’t.
SEEK SPIRITUAL GIFTS.
Maybe you don’t understand everything or didn’t grow up in church, but God says, “seek me and you will find me!”
It doesn’t always come if you try to force it.
Be careful what you speak over someone’s life on behalf of God because you can’t take it back.
Why was the Holy Spirit sent?
The Holy Spirit is the HELPER.
We’re naturally rebellious.
He makes people aware by drawing them to Him.
God’s spirit is everywhere. You don’t have to be in church to be saved just like you don’t have to be in a funeral home to die.
He’s everywhere, and He’s all encompassing.
He keeps us on the right track.
God doesn’t go anywhere, we go away from Him. Say yes to Him and He will make Himself known.
Righteousness is right-standing with God.
He paid the price for your sin-past, present, future.
God’s already taken care of your past. It’s covered in the blood of Jesus and is forgotten as soon as you ask for forgiveness ONE TIME. It’s your day to let it go.
You don’t have to be who you’ve always been.
Good news: The enemy has been defeated. Jesus said, “It is finished.”
God sees you.
The blood is a covering for all of our sins. We are forgiven.
At the end of our lives, Jesus is going to ask you if you know who He is, not how often you went to church or how many stories you knew about Him.
The Holy Spirit is our helper and our guide.
The bible is the word of life. Ask God for help if you don’t understand it.
