You Are My God

O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, In a dry and weary land where there is no water.
Psalms 63:1 NASB

Holy Spirit

While it remained unsold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not under your control? Why is it that you have conceived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.” Acts 5:4

Who is the Holy Spirit? Often this has confused many including Christians, but Peter makes it clear here that the Holy Spirit is God. Now to understand this, you need to understand the Trinity doctrine. Those who deny the Trinity doctrine not only don’t have a clear understanding of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, but they are also denying scripture (The Word of God)

but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin “—Mark 3:29

Jesus made it pretty clear, that blasphemy against the Holy Spirit was pretty serious. So why would this penalty be so serious if the Holy Spirit wasn’t to be taken serious? As we go back to our story in Acts, Ananias and Sapphira didn’t take the Holy Spirit very serious and lied to God. The consequences were major, sent shockwaves through the Christian Church.

As a Christian, The Holy Spirit was sent to guide, convict, comfort, (John 14)  and seal you (Ephesians 1) Listen to the Holy Spirit, don’t rely on human intelligence, greater is he living inside of me than he that is living in the world Amen!

Salvation in Jesus

“And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

As the Holy Spirit revealed through Peter, there is only one way to salvation! There is only one way to be saved and nobody gets to God without him, his name is Jesus Christ! Stop following false religions and reading self help books, because they cant save your soul. You will never be able to attain Heaven without Jesus, its impossible.

The religious leaders and the rest of the world cant understand, how can these uneducated men like Peter and John, have so much wisdom regarding God and salvation? Its simple, the truth has been revealed by The Holy Spirit! This truth was confirmed by the healing of the lame beggar at the gate of the Holy Temple. While the religious leaders ignored his cries daily, one touch from the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus, healed the man instantly

Buddha, Muhammad, The Pope, Joseph Smith, not even Abraham can save you or give you salvation. There is only one name under Heaven which can set the captives free, his name is Jesus Christ Amen!

“But the things which God announced beforehand by the mouth of all the prophets, that His Christ would suffer, He has thus fulfilled. Acts 3:18

The second sermon given by Peter revealed how Jesus Christ has been foretold throughout the entire Bible. Even since the book of Genesis all the way through Revelation, Jesus Christ has been revealed to the world. Prophets like Moses, Isaiah , and Daniel all spoke of the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

And even though Jesus was revealed through the scriptures, the people still didn’t recognize him in the flesh. And not only did they reject him but had him tortured and crucified on a Roman cross. The Messiah that was promised by all the prophets through the Holy Spirit, was murdered by his own people

“For you first, God raised up His Servant and sent Him to bless you by turning every one of you from your wicked ways.” Acts 3:26

God raised up his only begotten Son, the suffering servant, who took the wrath of all our sins, so we can be justified before our Heavenly Father. The time has come for everyone to repent, the blood is on all our hands.

Only  Christ, can save us from the curse of death, repent and receive his salvation in Jesus Name Amen!

Gifts from God

Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:38

The first sermon of the Christian Church happened at the day of Pentecost by Peter, during this sermon Peter revealed how Jesus fulfilled the Messianic prophecies of the Old Testament and how the coming of The Holy Spirit also has fulfilled prophecy!

We are living in the “Church Age”, an age that won’t last forever. This is an age where we are to call everyone to repent and receive Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior and recieve the Holy Spirit. But time is limited, when the trumpet sounds and Christ returns again, The Church will be Raptured and these days of salvation will be over

“For the promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call to Himself.” Acts 2:39

The Promise of the Holy Spirit, which was revealed 800 years prior to the Prophet Joel  was finally fulfilled on the day of Pentecost. But before you can receive the Holy Spirit , you must repent and receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, are you saved?

Don’t delay any further,  don’t reject the gifts from God in Jesus name Amen!

Receive Power

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth. Acts 1:8

These are the last words Jesus spoke before he ascended into Heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father. Jesus said “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon You”.

Often as Christians we feel helpless and maybe even forgotten, but God has said he will never leave or forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:6) God has fulfilled this promise by the arrival of The Holy Spirit. Now wherever you go or whatever circumstance you may be facing, The Holy Spirit dwells inside you and you receive his power!

Some might say, “I don’t feel powerful” or maybe you feel totally defeated. Remember we are fighting a spiritual warfare not a physical one.   Think about when Jesus went to the cross, from a physical standpoint, he seemed weak and even defeated. But what the world didn’t realize is on the cross, Jesus defeated sin, death, and Satan! Jesus won the war of our souls and Gods Kingdom

Jesus went on to say “We are his witnesses, not just in Jerusalem but to the entire world”. When you accept Christ as your Lord and Savior and are baptized by The Holy Spirit, you are a Child of God! Its time to be a witness for Christ, this is not optional its an obligation as a Christian!

Spread the gospel to all the nations in the name of The Father, Son , and Holy Spirit Amen!
