Discovering Your Gifts -Introduction

Acts 2:17-21
Acts 1:8
John 20:21-22
Deut. 2:31
Deut 1:8

In the last days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people.(the anointing) In those days I will pour out my Spirit on those who are serving me

But YOU will receive power (the anointing) when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.”  And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.

I have given you this land. Go in and take possession

. “I have begun to give… begin to possess.”

Joel 2
Acts 2

In the last days I will pour out my spirit (Anointing) Fresh infilling of Holy Spirit

Turn to someone and say: “IT’S ALL ABOUT THE SPIRITUAL

“On earth as it is in heaven”

We first breakthrough in the spiritual real

Then we see it in the physical realm

Anyone know? “theybies”

  • Growing trend in families
  • Raising children “gender neautral”
  • Allow children to make their own choice
  • Know as “gender fluidity”
  • Refer to son or daughter as “they and it” (rather than he, she, him or her)
  • “Kids” rather than boys and girls
  • “It’s all about the spiritual”

We continue “Living in the Power of the Holy Spirit”

We said

The Spirit filled life is filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. It is moving daily in the power and will of God which is to impact every area of our life.

It releases the supernatural power  of God that releases “His Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven”

Turn to someone and say-

God needs you!

It’s time for VICTORY in your life

We saw the

Doorway to “Living in the Power of the Holy Spirit 2018”

“Be filled with the Spirit”

Overview Being filled with the Holy Spirit

  • When we accept Jesus we receive the Holy Spirit
  • (salvation) (Water Baptism)
  • There is a second experience with the Spirit in the Baptism Holy Spirit  (Acts 1:8;2:3)
  • (service/empowering)
  • Then there is a need to receive additional infillings of the Holy Spirit (Eph 5:8)
  • (anointing)

We said the Doorway to
Living in the Power of the Holy Spirit is

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit

WHAT IS THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT?

The baptism in the Holy Spirit is an empowering for ministry that takes place in the life of the Christian (Acts 1:5,8).

It brings us into the fullness of the Spirit’s life and power.

WHY DO WE NEED THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT?

We need a power beyond ourselves to establish the “Kingdom of God. (Personally, marriage, family, job, future)

Is essential  in dealing with the power of the enemy. (those things that rob our life.)

We looked at

Benefits of receiving the Baptism in the Holy Spirit

Last time

  How to receive / refire The Baptism in the Holy Spirit

I said

  • I’ve had the opportunity over the past years of ministry to lead hundreds of people into the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. Both one-on-one and in large meetings,
  • I’ve seen the transformation of lives and families.
  • Today I want to give you the steps to which the encounter of the BHS takes place so it can be helpful to those who are pursuing the Lord.
  • Also to those who need REFIRING
  • I shared my story

We looked at

Next
AFTER we’ve received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit

What’s next?

The purpose of the Baptism and Anointing of the Holy Spirit is to

Empower

Acts 1:7-8

He said to them: …But you will receive POWER  when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Luke 24:49

“And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised. But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and EMPOWERS you from heaven

Important

The Lord has set your destiny and has equipped you personally for that destiny

1 Peter 2:9

But you are chosen, you belong  to God, that you may declare Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light

The equipment for your destiny is

The “Gifts of the Holy Spirit”

Let’s begin our study Gifts of the Spirit

1 Cor 12:7-10

Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit the word of wisdom, to another the word of knowledge by means of the same Spirit,  to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit,  to another miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another speaking in tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues.

Let’s look at

Foundations (Bible based evidence) for the Gifts of the Holy Spirit for the “Spirit Filled Christian”

And why they are so important for you today

Foundations for the
Spiritual Gifts

  • Every Christian has been given spiritual gifts

(no exclusions)

Enemy thrives on Christian’s  lack of knowledge

Only for selected group

Rom 12:4-6

Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function,  so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. 6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given us.

Natural Unspiritual useà Worldly Gain

Christian Useà For the Lord -> Spiritual Gain

  • We are told to know about spiritual gifts

Most Christians are powerless

Unaware of what the Lord has given us

Dealing only in our abilities and not taping into HS power

1 Cor 12:1

Now about spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be ignorant.

 

  • We are to use our gifts

When the Gifts are acknowledged they become a natural part of our lives

Word of Knowledge, Wisdom, Faith, Healing

1 Tim 4:14

Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through a prophetic message when the body of elders laid their hands on you.

Next week

 

  • We are told to know our  spiritual job description

Confidence in who you are

“If you don’t know who you are –life dictates to you

2 Thess 1:11

Therefore we also pray always for you that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power

Foundations for the Spiritual Gifts RESULTS

  • We will  grow in  the Lord (power, authority, victory over the enemy in our lives and others)

Everyday becomes a learning and growing experience

God gets bigger life’s problems get smaller

Eph 4:14-15

Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.

  • Your “sphere of influence (ministry) will be impacted

They need you

1 Thess 5:11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up,

Heb 10:25  but let us encourage one another

Col 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another

Gal 6:2-3 2 Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the message of Christ.

  • The Lord will be glorified

When you move in the power of the Holy Spirit there is no denying that “Jesus is Real” in your life and others.

1 Peter 4:11

If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever.
