GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT – POWER GIFTS


gift-of-faith

 THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT CAN BE DIVIDED INTO 3 CATEGORIES:

1) The Knowledge Gifts (Word of Wisdom, Word of Knowledge, Discerning of Spirits).

2) The Power Gifts (Gift of Faith, Working of Miracles, Gifts of Healing).

3) The Verbal Gifts (Tongues, Interpretation of Tongues, Prophecy).

WE HAVE COVERED THE KNOWLEDGE GIFTS OVER THE LAST WEEK AND NOW WE WILL BEGIN THE POWER GIFTS.

1 Cor. 12:9-10a, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, 10 to another the working of miracles…

WHAT IS THE GIFT OF FAITH?

It is not normal faith.

Each person has been given a measure of faith (Rom. 12:3).

Normal faith came be increased (Rom. 10:17).

THE GIFT OF FAITH IS NOT NORMAL FAITH – IT IS A GIFT!

It is for a moment in time to encourage, strengthen and building people that a SUPERNATURAL RUSH of FAITH surges through you!

LIKE A SPIRITUAL INJECTION OF ADRENALINE FAITH!

You look at the impossible and nothing matters.  You just know that you know that you know that it is completed in Jesus’ name!

WHEN YOU GET THIS MIRACLES ARE RELEASED.  MY PASTORS TAUGHT ME THAT THIS IS THE FUEL TO THE ROCKET OF ALL THE OTHER GIFTS.

Pray for the GIFT OF FAITH to be released in your impossibility and watch that SUPERNATURAL shot of FAITH bring your answer to the impossible!

FREE GIFT from Jesus!


free-gift

Acts 2:38b-39, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.

JESUS HAS A GIFT FOR YOU CALLED THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT!

That gift scares me Pastor!

I am kind of freaked out about people speaking in other tongues!

THE ONE TRUTH TO ABSORB IS SIMPLE….GOD ONLY GIVES PERFECT GIFTS!

James 1:17,  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

WHENEVER JESUS IS GIVING A GIFT BE THE FIRST ONE IN LINE, EVEN IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND IT BECAUSE YOU KNOW IT IS GOING TO BE AWESOME!

So how do I receive this FREE GIFT?

ASK!

Matt. 7:7, Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

ASK IN FAITH!

Everything we receive from heaven is by faith, then the manifestation comes.  Just like with salvation, you had to receive what you could not see before you were saved.  When you are receiving the BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT you have to receive by faith.

LET’S PRAY RIGHT NOW!

Jesus, we thank you for the Holy Spirit and the Baptism with the evidence of speaking with other tongues.  We receive the promise, the free gift by faith and say, “THANK YOU.”  

NOW START SPEAKING IN TONGUES!

The Holy Spirit is going to give you words in your spirit and you simply begin to speak them out loud.  Do not make it hard.  Simply begin to speak those words the Spirit of God is giving you.

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

GIVE THAT BACK!


that_toy_is_mine

HAVE YOU EVER HAD SOMEONE GIVE YOU A CHRISTMAS GIFT AND RIGHT AFTER YOU OPEN IT THEY GRAB IT BACK AND SAY THEY DO NOT WANT YOU TO HAVE IT?

Can you imagine that moment?

WHAT?  Are you crazy?

YOU WRAPPED IT, PUT THEIR NAME ON IT, PUT IT UNDER THE CHRISTMAS TREE AND NOW YOU ARE TAKING IT FROM THEIR HANDS AFTER THEY OPENED IT?

That is sick!

HOW OFTEN DO WE DO THAT TO JESUS?

We give Him our lives – Rom. 12:1, So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. MSG

THEN WE CHANGE OUR MINDS AND TAKE IT BACK!

Maybe not the whole gift, just part of it.  We give Him that area of our lives that we struggle with and then once we lay it at the altar we pick it back up again because we want to play with it.

That sin that so easily besets us!  We surrender it, we give it to Jesus, then temptation comes and we walk over to Jesus and take it from Him and start playing with it again.

MAKE A DECISION THAT THIS SEASON YOU WILL LEAVE IT AT THE ALTAR.

DO NOT TAKE YOUR SACRIFICIAL GIFT THAT YOU GAVE TO CHRIST BACK.

Surrender it fully because it really is not yours any longer, you gave it away!

SURRENDER AND LEAVE IT IN HIS HANDS – YOU GAVE IT TO HIM – DO NOT TAKE IT BACK!

Second Hand Gift


used gifts

HAVE YOU EVER GIVEN A GIFT THAT YOU USED A FEW TIMES AND REALIZED YOU DID NOT LIKE IT SO YOU GIFTED IT TO SOMEONE ELSE AT CHRISTMAS?

Some people might be snickering because they have done that……lol!

OTHERS GASPED AT THE THOUGHT!

OTHERS STILL HAVE BEEN THE RECIPIENT OF THAT USED GIFT.

There is one thing for sure…..that is not nice!

The principle of a gift is that we are giving someone love through a gift.  The old used gift speaks of the care and love that was a second thought (not talking of antique or generational gifting).

SO MANY OF US GIVE JESUS OUR LEFTOVER, USED, RATHER THAN PACKAGING OUR BEST!

Heb. 13:15, Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.

Deut 17:1, You shall not sacrifice to the LORD your God an ox or a sheep in which is a blemish, any defect whatever, for that is an abomination to the LORD your God.

GOD DESIRES OUR BEST – US – NOT OUR LEFTOVERS – BUT – US – OUR BEST!

Rom 12:1-2,  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

IT IS EASY TO GIVE JESUS THE UNUSED TIME, LEFTOVER MONEY, WHAT WE HAVE REMAINING OF LOVE.

He desires our FIRSTS!

Ez 44:30, And the first of all the firstfruits of all kinds, and every offering of all kinds from all your offerings, shall belong to the priests. You shall also give to the priests the first of your dough, that a blessing may rest on your house.

WHAT ARE YOU GIVING JESUS AS YOUR GIFT TODAY?

 

Give Him your BEST TODAY AND SEE THE BLESSINGS FLOW!

HOW TO LEAD SOMEONE TO JESUS!


share Jesus

Salvation Message

Has anyone ever told you that God loves you and that He has a wonderful plan for your life? 
I have a real quick, but important question to ask you. If you were to die this very second, do you know for sure, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you would go to Heaven? 

[If “Yes”—Great, why would you say “Yes”? (If they respond with anything but “I have Jesus in my heart” or something similar to that, PROCEED WITH SCRIPT) or “No” or “I hope so” PROCEED WITH SCRIPT.]

Let me quickly share with you what the Holy Bible reads. It reads “for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” and “for the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord”. The Bible also reads, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved”. And you’re a “whosoever” right? Of course you are; all of us are.

I’m going to say a quick prayer for you. 
Lord, bless (FILL IN NAME) and his/ her family with long and healthy lives. Jesus, make Yourself real to him/her and do a quick work in his/her heart. If (FILL IN NAME) has not received Jesus Christ as his/her Lord and Savior, I pray he/she will do so now.

(FILL IN NAME), if you would like to receive the gift that God has for you today, say this after me with your heart and lips out loud. 

Dear Lord Jesus, come into my heart. Forgive me of my sin. Wash me and cleanse me. Set me free. Jesus, thank You that You died for me. I believe that You are risen from the dead and that You’re coming back again for me. Fill me with the Holy Spirit. Give me a passion for the lost, a hunger for the things of God and a holy boldness to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. I’m saved; I’m born again, I’m forgiven and I’m on my way to Heaven because I have Jesus in my heart.

I tell you today that all of your sins are forgiven. Always remember to run to God and not from God because He loves you and has a great plan for your life.

[Invite them to your church, encourage them to read their Bible starting in the book of John and most of all KEEP ENCOURAGING THEM]
