The Power From On High

  1. The Power From On High

    Luke 24:49And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

    Acts 1:8But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth

    The word "power" is the Greek word, 'dunamis ' , which means "miraculous power, and is where we get our English word 'dynamite' or ‘ dymano’. The power that divided the Red Sea and raised the dead demonstates this dynamic power!

    John 20:21Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. 22And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost.

    When Jesus breathed upon them that could have given them a clue as to what might happen. This was symbolic of what was to take place when the promise of the Father was given.

    Acts 2:1And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

    As they prayed and waited the Fire of God fell on the, and the Breath of God, the Wind of God, blew upon them filling them to overflowing with His powerful anointing.

    Acts 2:3And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

    Luke 3:16John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire.

    When we first come to the Lord we are so close, He is our priority. But after awhile so many become lukewarm in their relationship with Him. Don't let coldness set it. Stay on fire. Stir it up, fan that fire ! When we pray in the Spirit it gets us stirred up and fired up once again.
    We want to be more like Jesus our Lord. The fire burns out anything that is not like Him and we come forth as purified gold.

    Acts 4:31And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

    The place was shaken. Now that's power! The Spirit makes us bold as a lion.

    Acts 2:39For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call.

    Acts 19:6And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied

    When they laid hands on them the anointing and power of the Holy Ghost was transfered to them to flow through them, to do the works for Jesus, and to destroy the works of the enemy. There is much power available to do whatever the Lord calls us to do. The world seems helpless and hopeless because they do not have this power. We need this to take to them, that they can be delivered from the present evils of this world.

    Acts 26:18To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

    Matthew 10:1And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

    Luke 4:36And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.

    It's the anointing that destroys bondages and delivers us from strongholds. There is the anointing that is within us and there is an anointing that comes upon us for service.

    Isaiah 10:27And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.
    Luke 4:18The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19To preach the acceptable year of the Lord

    It's true we do not need to tarry to be baptized with the Holy Spirit today for He has already been given. Once we repent of our sins and confess with our mouth Jesus is the Lord of our life, all we need to do is ask Him and He will baptize us.

    But after we receive we do need to commune with Him, worshipping, waiting in His presence. How can we be filled up if we neglect time with Him? It's like going on a long trip and not filling the tank up with gas. He is the one who fills us. Its not a one time thing but we are to be continually filled up each day.

    Do you want this kind of power? We need dynamic power that can change devastating situation, that can move in our lives and help suffering people. He wants to anoint you with this power.

    Spirit of God fall upon us like the day of Pentecost and fill us to overflowing! Wind of God is blow upon us, Fire of God set us aflame! Receive the power from on high
  2. When pentecost came they were in one place and had all things in common . All they knew about was Jesus . and what He did .

    that's it . the focus has to be on Him in a very simple and childlike manner . in meekness of heart we then enter into the gentle fire of Moses that did not consume the bush and hear the small still voice that Elijah listened to . its about intimacy with God .
  3. This is exactly what the churches in our day need . A hungering and thirsting for more of God and His miracles . He is worthy .... Praise His Name . It is up to us . Seek and you shall find , knock and the door will be opened. Hallelujah for the Lamb !!!!!

  6. Bless you too, InHisLove :smiley90:

  7. And by the way tomorrow is Pentecost Sunday and I expect a great service .
  8. Me too Dusty . i've had expectancy all week .
  9. Amen and amen .... Take the world but give me Jesus .... Hmmm , I think I remember a song like that .

  10. I was just about to mention that :D

    That's why I'm posting this now because this is stirring inside
  11. Pentecost was 50 days after the resurrection of Jesus. The word ''pentecost'' means ''fiftieth day'' It was a fufillment of the prophecy of Joel and the promise of the Father.

    Joel 2:28And afterward,
    I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
    Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
    your old men will dream dreams,
    your young men will see visions.
    29Even on my servants, both men and women,
    I will pour out my Spirit in those days.

    Acts 2:31:He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.
    32This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.
    33Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.

  12. Just look at the transformation in Peter’s life. Before he denied the Lord when a girl mentioned he must have been with Jesus. Now he’s bold as a lion after the day of pentecost and stands up proclaiming all Jesus is and did before the unbelievers from everywhere. They were cut to the heart and asked what they could do to be saved. There were 3000 saved that day.

    Now that was a powerful message straight from the Spirit of God. When we the last time someone asked US how to be saved?
  13. That was great! i'm saving that one .
  14. I like this one even better

  15. Yes I like this one better as well .... Thanks
  16. Mark 16:17
    And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. 19So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. 20And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

    All God's children need to be baptized with the Holy Spirit, the power from on high, to do the works of Jesus. This was His commission to us before He left this earth. We need this power that can deliver, and heal. Its the same power that raised Christ from the dead, and raised Lazethus, the same power there opened the Red Sea.

    Romans 8:11
    But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you
  17. Yes I know who he is and he's one of the greats evangelist winning millions to the Lord! Jeff ( the owner) mentioned him on one of his threads here too.
  18. I see him every Sun. morning on TV before I go to church . God is working through people like this dedicated man of God . Many have been saved and healed through his ministry .

    Praise God .
