Holy Spirit ---- The Gift Acts 1-4…… Wait for the Holy Spirit On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: "Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about What is this gift ? The Holy Spirit is not a formula , not a power but a Person . The Holy Spirit is not a reward but He is a gift . Praise God … This gift comes with an extended warranty…. Think about it . We are promised and guaranteed, just like when we purchase a store bought article and the salesman says “ Would you like an extended warranty ? “ Wow , God has a better offer . His has a promise that will never run out . Acts 2: 39 ….. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call." Acts 1:8…… 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." When we have the Baptism of the Holy Spirit ; we are given the courage and patience to enter our Samaria ( The place where God sends us ) whether it be our neibourhood , our city or the world . He will provide for us . With the Holy Spirit we will elevate Christ and draw people to salvation . We will be able to discern false spirits , confront demonic powers , and people will follow Christ instead of Charismatic leaders . Acts 8: 1-8……. Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went. 5Philip went down to a city in Samaria and proclaimed the Christthere. 6When the crowds heard Philip and saw the miraculous signs he did, they all paid close attention to what he said. 7With shrieks, evilspirits came out of many, and many paralytics and cripples were healed. 8So there was great joy in that city.
