Hi, this is Lisa with a message about the Holy Spirit.   

Have you ever wondered why none of the Christians you see today in your local churches, walk around doing miracles and healings, why they don’t raise anyone from the dead or do all the things Jesus Himself did?  Especially since Jesus said we WOULD do these things, if we follow Him. 

Obviously one reason COULD be that there are people who think they’re saved but aren’t, and then there are Christians who don’t believe they’re SUPPOSED to do these things.  Most people really don’t know what the Holy Spirit is for and they have no clue how to get the power that Jesus had, or even if it’s possible. 

Some people even believe sickness and death, depression and failure are things that Christians have to go through to get closer to God, and become better Christians. 

Show me how you get to be a better Christian by walking in weakness and failure!  The apostles and early Christians didn’t do that.  They IMMEDIATELY began living victorious lives of power and joy.  Even Peter’s SHADOW had power to heal wherever it fell as he walked along the street.  Nope, doesn’t sound to me like it was necessary to be sick to be close to God.

The truth is, God wants you to be healed, healthy, victorious in every area, and provided for.  He wants your family to be blessed and everything you touch to succeed, by His mercy and love.  He also wants you to be obedient to His Words.

How do you get the power that Jesus wants you to have?  The secret is in your faith, and in letting the Holy Spirit fill your life.  He is inside you now if you’re saved, but He won’t be on the throne of your life until you PUT HIM there by invitation.  So acknowledge Him as a real person, (He’s not a THING), and know that He is the third person of the Holy Trinity.  (There is God the Father, God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit.)

The Holy Spirit seals you the moment you are saved, and He stays with you forever after that.  (This is your promise of salvation, and NOBODY can take it away from you.) 

But He also wants to lead you and empower you.  To receive this “baptism of the Holy Ghost”, you only have to ask.  Remember when you asked Jesus to save you?  Pray the same way to the Holy Spirit, like this “Spirit of God, please come into my heart and my life, fill me with your wisdom and power.  Please baptize me with your power and be in control of my life!”

You may feel something, and you may not, but you have the PROMISE that if you pray like this, and really mean it in your heart, that you WILL now be under the anointing of God and His power will flow into and through you.  You’re prayers to heal the sick and give help to people will be answered quickly and you’ll have the power of God operating in your life.  Your life will begin to change and you’ll be a light to the world.

You may experience other evidence of the Holy Spirit, such as speaking in tongues, or your hands becoming warm as you pray.  For more complete information on the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, log on to this website when you've finished here, and read the many wonderful lessons there.  Make sure to bookmark my site so you can find your way back to it!

Another thing I REALLY want you to understand is that when you are saved, you are not only forgiven and adopted into the family of God, but you are taken completely out from under the Law that condemns. You are NO LONGER a sinner, no longer capable of sinning.  I don’t mean you can’t do wrong, or do the same things you were doing when you WERE a sinner.  I mean that when you do wrong now, it’s not called sin. 

It is still wrong to willfully sin, and it hurts Jesus.  It hurts the Holy Spirit who is sealed inside of you forever.  But when the devil comes to you through your conscience, and tries to tell you that you can’t REALLY be saved because you have still done wrong at times, you MUST KNOW that he’s a LIAR.  You ARE saved, and Jesus’ blood CONTINUES to wash over you, sprinkling your conscience and your heart daily, 24 hrs a day, and removes every new wrong you do, as you learn how to live and walk in the Spirit.   (It IS still up to you to learn to walk in the Spirit and in love.)

Soon, you’ll be walking with power and doing wrong less and less.  You still have to use your will to CHOOSE what is right over what is wrong, but you can walk without fear now.  You don’t have to be afraid of being accused; you were acquitted, set free and no longer subject to the law of death from sin. 

Walking in fear is one of the biggest reasons Christians have no power. They listen to the enemy say they are sinners and can’t approach God’s throne of mercy because they have dirty hands. 

Jesus says COME to the throne.  Come and be replenished, washed clean every day, and refilled with power and purpose.  He wants you to have a vision of who you are and what you’re doing here.  He wants to walk WITH you, everywhere and all the time.  He wants you to be victorious!

Jesus said, “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”  This is from Matthew 11:30 of the King James Version.

Would you like to be able to look up verses and issues, to see what the Bible says about them?  Would you like to be able to search many different Bibles, and commentaries, to see what other translations of the Bible say?  You can log onto www.biblegateway.com and type in parts of verses or words you’d like to look up.  Choose from many Bibles, ones you’ve never even heard of before.  And this website is FREE.  Use it often!

Keep a Bible in your home; encourage your family to read it.  But make use of every good thing, and the Internet biblegateway site is a great research tool.

The last thing I want to tell you is that there is power in the spoken word. God said He made us in His image, and He created using words.  He SAID, “let there be light” and there was light.  We have the same creative power in our speech that He has.  This is one reason the world is in a real bad mess today.  We are not careful what we say.  We curse and complain, and we express our “faith” in bad things happening.  Have you ever said something like “I believe it’s going to rain before I get these clothes dried” or “She’s going to be raped wearing that outfit!” 

Although you may not have had the faith built up to actually cause it to rain immediately, or for someone to experience immediate harm, but those words are like smoke filling a room, building and turning the balance of the world from good to bad.  They add up and they don’t go away.

Every word spoken that builds people up and edifies, praises God or blesses people and things, tips the balance of the world towards peace, prosperity and long life.  If we can educate everyone we know to speak only good, we can change the world in big ways!  Remember every big thing begins with one person.  If no one will listen to you, there is still YOUR voice that can speak good, bless your family and neighbors and forgive those who have done wrong.

Remember a few paragraphs ago; I said, “How do you get the power that Jesus wants you to have?  The secret is in faith, and in having the Holy Spirit, and letting Him fill your life.”   I’ve already told you how to get the Holy Spirit, but the other really important part of power is FAITH. 

The Bible says “Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.”  What does this mean?  It means if you want to have more power, you need more faith.  To have more faith, you need to hear more Word of God.  That means studying and memorizing verses.

Which verses?  How do you find them?  And when you’ve memorized the verses how do you apply them to your life and make miracles happen? 

I have good news for you.  Pastor Stan Glass of Life Christian Center International in Albany GA gave us two sets of Bible verses that had been turned into confessions.  In other words, where a specific Bible verse has Jesus instructing us to “ask in My name”, in these verses it would read “I ask in Jesus’ name”.  There are 194 verses of faith confessions that you can pray with and repeat out loud daily that will bring about the miracles you’re asking for in your life.

Some are for specific health or money problems; others are worded to deal with general issues.  Once you see how they are written, you can write your own for your special problems and concerns.

I will help you learn more about the specific verses that are promises to us, but in the meantime, read the Bible and read these faith confessions.  USE the faith confessions.  I hope you understood that these Bible promises turned into confessions are anointed and will unleash the power to heal you and fix your problems, when you activate them by speaking them out loud and hooking your faith up to what you speak.

You can also look up the verses mentioned after each one, so you can see what God specifically said.  Not all of the Bible references will seem to make sense to you, but trust and believe.  God will reveal His will and His mercy.  He is your very best friend, and He will NEVER leave you.

At the bottom of this page I’ve typed some of the verses, but if you want to read them ALL, find them on my website at www.blessingmeadowsministries.com/faith_confessions.htm

You are very important to me, and that’s why I’ve taken the time to write this out for you.  I want you to email me when you need to talk.  I want to help you know that you are saved, and get baptized.  I want your life to be like the apostles’, full of power, God’s glory and happiness!  I want you to know perfect peace.  The author of our Peace is Jesus, and His arms are outstretched to each of us now. 

Here are the 3 websites I’ve told you about, again.  Read the verses, pick out the ones that you need, and speak it out loud!  Then write to me and tell me that God IS GOING to do miracles for you, because you’ve asked in His name.  I will stand in agreement with you on these things.
