00:00 Hey hi I'm Wes Carosi and I'm going to
00:05 be talking about the joy and triumph
00:07 Holy Spirit brings today why don't we
00:11 pray for a second Heavenly Father we
00:13 come before you in the name of Jesus we
00:15 just thank you for your grace and your
00:17 mercy in our lives we thank you Lord God
00:20 that that you have sent us a promise of
00:24 Holy Spirit Lord got to help us in our
00:27 everyday life we give you praise and
00:29 thanks in Jesus name you make sure that
00:32 this is on okay so how are you guys
00:37 doing okay when when people talk about
00:44 God as the three persons in one Holy
00:48 Spirit is always the most misunderstood
00:51 I always pictured God the Father as the
00:55 mighty creator of all things walking
00:58 through the garden talking to Adam you
01:01 know the fatherly figure and God the Son
01:06 Jesus you know it's obvious to us
01:09 believers because he's a sacrificial
01:11 lamb of God he's our Redeemer he's the
01:16 savior he is our soon coming King and
01:19 he's done all these things for us the
01:21 Holy Spirit on the other hand is
01:23 somewhat mysterious you know Holy Spirit
01:27 so he he brooded over the chaos of
01:32 before the world was formed at during
01:36 creation he descends upon Jesus in the
01:40 form of a dove you know and and remained
01:43 on him during the water baptism he fills
01:47 all of us and gives us new languages and
01:51 gifts and fruits and all these things
01:56 it's a mystery the Holy Spirit is
01:59 actually the spirit of the father and
02:02 the son now you can kind of imagine
02:06 father god I can imagine a picture of
02:13 father
02:13 and and I can definitely see and
02:17 understand who Jesus is you know because
02:21 what he has done for me but Holy Spirit
02:24 takes a little bit more time and faith
02:27 to imagine the fact is he needs to show
02:32 us who he is by doing miraculous things
02:36 in order for us to experience what we
02:40 can't see
02:42 in in first corinthians 2:14 it says the
02:46 natural mind cannot comprehend or
02:49 receive the things of the Spirit the
02:52 Holy Spirit has to reveal everything
02:55 spiritual to us we just can't get it on
02:59 our own and so so it's hard to imagine
03:02 something that we can't see but that's
03:07 why we have faith so on the day of
03:10 Pentecost whenever I think about
03:13 Pentecost whenever it comes to mind I
03:16 think about the Holy Spirit filling
03:18 believers but did you know that Holy
03:21 Spirit was filling people in the New
03:25 Testament the Holy Spirit was filling
03:27 people far before the day of Pentecost
03:30 ever happened number one who do you
03:34 think was the first person in the New
03:36 Testament filled with the Holy Spirit
03:38 Amy who do you think it was no Kris who
03:45 do you think it was no
03:49 first person in the New Testament filled
03:51 with the spirit no it was Mary Mary
04:01 the the mother of Jesus in Matthew 120
04:06 it says this is a Gabriel talking to to
04:11 Joseph he says don't be afraid to take
04:13 Mary as your wife for that which it was
04:16 conceived in her is of Holy Spirit so
04:20 because Jesus was in her Holy Spirit was
04:23 also in her it's kind of a different
04:26 feeling type of thing but in Luke 1:15
04:30 the Gabriel also talked to Zacharias
04:35 about his son John being filled with the
04:37 Holy Spirit and in Luke 144 the prophecy
04:42 of that is actually fulfilled but but
04:45 Luke 141 says and it came to pass that
04:48 when Elizabeth heard the greeting of
04:50 Mary the babe John leaped in her womb
04:54 for joy and Elizabeth was filled with
04:58 holy spirit and she prophesied she
05:01 prophesied blessed are you among women
05:04 and blessed is the fruit of your womb
05:06 when someone is filled with Holy Spirit
05:09 it tends to spill out and in this case
05:14 it the Holy Spirit manifested in her
05:16 through prophecy so even though the Holy
05:21 Spirit wasn't poured out he was still
05:25 manifesting gifts in her in so so
05:30 actually when she was filled with the
05:33 spirit John was filled with the spirit
05:36 that's he received the fruit of joy
05:39 right away so fruits and gifts were
05:42 manifesting right away Luke 226 talks
05:45 about Simeon you know Simeon the old man
05:48 waiting for the baby Jesus in the temple
05:52 and the Holy Spirit it says the Holy
05:55 Spirit was upon him it it says it was
06:00 revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that
06:02 he should
06:03 see death before he had seen the Lord's
06:07 anointed one Jesus so that's you know
06:11 different ways that Holy Spirit comes
06:12 upon us now john the baptist said i
06:15 baptize you with water unto repentance
06:18 but he jesus shall baptize you with Holy
06:23 Spirit and fire is what Luke 3:16 says
06:27 so when Jesus was baptized in water the
06:31 spirit like a dove came and it says it
06:35 remained on him this is what God's plan
06:39 is for us that Jesus would live Jesus
06:42 would die Jesus would be raised from the
06:45 dead Jesus would ascend back to heaven
06:48 and and the Holy Spirit would come upon
06:53 us and remain with us the Father Son
06:57 Holy Spirit are faithful to remain with
07:00 us saying you know in Hebrews 13:5 it
07:03 says that I will never leave you or
07:07 forsake you never in in one place it
07:10 says I will never never never leave you
07:14 or forsake you so we ourselves you know
07:21 even though God will never forsake us we
07:25 ourselves can drive a wedge between us
07:29 and him by engaging in habitual sin I
07:35 mean I mean you have to really work at
07:38 it to get on God's bad side but refusing
07:44 to listen or respond to his call to us
07:46 this this we can choose to distance
07:49 ourselves from him by remaining in sin
07:52 you see God is holy and he will not
07:54 dwell with sin but the cool thing is in
07:59 first John 1:9 it says if we merely
08:02 confess our sins he is faithful and just
08:06 to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us
08:09 from all unrighteousness
08:10 so Holy Spirit can come back and dwell
08:13 upon us
08:14 refill us reunite us
08:16 so in ministry it is absolutely crucial
08:22 that we confess our sins before we
08:26 minister so that Holy Spirit can come
08:27 and help us otherwise we would be
08:31 ministering in our flesh and you know
08:34 that there's no power or authority in
08:37 the flesh God is wanting us to move and
08:40 operate and use the power and authority
08:44 of Holy Spirit to advance his kingdom
08:48 you know and to defeat the devil so we
08:51 need to be fit and we need to be
08:53 prepared to do that now now there are
09:01 different levels of Holy Spirit fillings
09:05 with Jesus you know at in John 20:22
09:12 after Jesus was crucified he rose from
09:16 the dead but before he actually ascended
09:20 to the Father it says he breathed on his
09:25 disciples and he said to them receive
09:29 the Holy Spirit now they didn't ask to
09:33 be filled Jesus just volunteered to do
09:37 that that's one one feeling I didn't
09:40 realize that that had happened until I
09:41 was studying this then later on of
09:44 course we know in in acts 1 4 through 8
09:47 Jesus said wait for the promise you
09:50 shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit
09:52 not many days from now and you shall
09:54 receive power when the Holy Spirit has
09:56 come upon you and you shall be witnesses
09:59 to me so that even though he had
10:03 breathed on them and he said receive
10:06 Holy Spirit there was something more
10:10 that was coming that they needed to wait
10:12 for like another filling you know so now
10:20 in acts 2 1 through 4 the the actual
10:24 output of the Holy Spirit happened it
10:25 says and when the day of Pentecost had
10:28 fully come there
10:30 appeared to them cloven tongues of fire
10:31 and it sat upon each one of them and
10:34 they were all filled with the Holy
10:36 Spirit began to speak with other tongues
10:38 as the Spirit gave them utterance
10:41 they're a baptized immersed in the Holy
10:45 Spirit and fire just like John said they
10:48 would be and the gift of tongues the
10:52 interpretation of tongues and prophecy
10:56 those gifts were almost immediately on
10:59 display you know so so Holy Spirit fills
11:05 Holy Spirit gifts manifest there's just
11:09 almost immediately Peter said in in acts
11:14 2:38 and 39 repent be baptized every one
11:19 of you in the name of Jesus Christ for
11:22 the remission of your sins and you shall
11:25 receive the gift of the Holy Spirit for
11:28 this promise is for you for your
11:31 children and to all who are far off as
11:34 many of as the Lord our God shall call
11:37 so this is important this is for you for
11:42 me for our children for all of us you
11:46 know the promise of Holy Spirit and all
11:49 of his gifts all of his fruits did not
11:53 end when the Apostles died some people
11:56 think that but but not according to the
11:59 Bible the promise is alive and well
12:03 today and is available to as many as the
12:06 Lord shall call so ask yourself am I
12:11 called well how do I know I'm called
12:15 the Bible says that no one can come to
12:17 the Father except you they're called so
12:20 if you know Jesus you're called so if
12:23 you're called Holy Spirit is available
12:26 to you all the gifts all the fruits have
12:29 you received your filling have you
12:32 received your refilling you know so all
12:35 of these things interesting things to
12:37 think about are you operating in the
12:40 gifts you know
12:42 are you experiencing the fruits so then
12:47 a few days later after Peter and John
12:49 had been persecuted by the Jewish
12:51 leaders for healing the lay man at the
12:54 the beautiful gate of the temple the
12:58 disciples got together with other
13:01 believers and they call upon the Lord
13:02 and they said now Lord look on their
13:05 threats and grant to your servants that
13:08 with boldness they that we may speak
13:13 your word by stretching out your hand to
13:15 heal and that signs and wonders may be
13:18 done through the name of your holy
13:20 servant Jesus and when they prayed the
13:24 place where they were assembled was
13:26 shaken and they were all filled with
13:29 Holy Spirit and they spoke the Word of
13:31 God with boldness
13:33 that's acts 4 29 to 31 so these three
13:37 times now okay these three times the
13:41 same people that disciples were filled
13:44 with Holy Spirit the first was when
13:47 Jesus just breathed on them and they and
13:51 he said to them receive the Holy Spirit
13:54 and the second time well yeah and that
14:00 was after he died and rose again but
14:03 before his ascension the second time was
14:05 of course the the promised spectacular
14:08 event when on the day of Pentecost when
14:13 when the rushing mighty wind came and
14:16 and the Holy Spirit fell and everybody
14:18 who was was speaking in tongues then the
14:22 last time after they were persecuted
14:24 they felt the need to ask for for a
14:30 refilling and they were refilled so
14:35 consider this it seems that Holy Spirit
14:39 is willing and able to pour out what we
14:43 need when we need it by filling us and
14:48 refilling us
14:50 when we asked for it he is willing to
14:53 pour out more it seems like all we need
14:56 to do is keep asking so how many times
15:02 can we be refilled and then you know I
15:05 know that when we were filled with the
15:07 Holy Spirit a lot of things happen the
15:10 first thing that happened to to these
15:12 guys is they became well Jesus said this
15:15 that we would become witnesses with
15:17 power and boldness and then in 1st
15:20 Corinthians chapter 12 verses 7 through
15:23 11 talks about other gifts of the Spirit
15:27 that are given by the spirit in in verse
15:30 7 it says but the manifestation of the
15:33 spirit or the making real of the Spirit
15:36 is given to each one of us for the
15:39 profit of everybody so these are the
15:43 gifts the word of wisdom through the
15:46 spirit the word of knowledge through the
15:49 same spirit faith by the same spirit
15:53 gifts of healing by the same spirit
15:55 working of miracles by the spirit
15:58 prophecy discerning of spirits different
16:02 kinds of tongues interpretation of
16:05 tongues but one in the same spirit works
16:09 all these things distributing to each
16:11 one individual individually as he wills
16:15 you know I have a little testimony not
16:21 this morning but last Tuesday morning we
16:23 were praying in the back room there the
16:26 men were and I forget who we were
16:28 praying for somebody so I was stretching
16:31 out my hand and I was praying in the
16:33 spirit
16:33 she bought a la casa you know just
16:35 praying in the spirit and then the guy
16:39 to my left
16:41 Lindo races this is what you're praying
16:45 so he he it was interpreting what I was
16:50 paying in his spirit it was so cool I
16:52 can't remember what it was but but it
16:55 was just cool that he was you know the
16:58 Lord gave him the interpretation for
16:59 what I was I was just praying you know
17:02 it was it was neat so Holy Spirit was
17:07 sent by the father after Jesus was
17:09 crucified and resurrected and ascended
17:11 so that he could empower us to do what
17:15 Jesus did this is a purpose to multiply
17:19 Jesus's ministry by the thousands and
17:22 millions you know God's purpose is to
17:26 have us to go heal the sick baptize them
17:30 in water baptized them in the Holy
17:31 Spirit save them from the fires of hell
17:33 do the works of Jesus and greater works
17:36 John 14:12 says in fact it says truly
17:42 truly I say to you that those who
17:45 believe in me will do what I am doing
17:47 and you will do even greater things
17:50 because I am going to my father now the
17:56 devil thought he got rid of his problem
17:59 when he had Jesus killed you know he
18:02 thought oh yeah it's over you know but
18:06 his troubles were just beginning you
18:08 know what he didn't count on and what he
18:12 could not foresee was the Holy Spirit
18:16 was coming to empower millions of other
18:18 little Jesus's you're a little Jesus
18:22 you're a little Jesus you know he came
18:25 to empower these little Jesus's just as
18:28 powerful just as effective just just as
18:33 as as able to to do the work but in
18:37 multiple places and at multiple times
18:40 now Jesus as powerful and effective as
18:45 he was truly was and had become a man
18:51 you know he had to become a man so that
18:54 he could sacrifice himself when he
18:56 became a man he could only be in one
18:59 place at a time so like for instance
19:04 Jesus was limited by his flesh so so
19:08 when when he when they when gyruss asked
19:12 him to to heal his daughter the
19:16 needed to wait until he got to the place
19:18 and and did that all the people in Syria
19:21 had to come to him and get healed you
19:26 know I'm sure he could have spoken and
19:28 everybody in the world would have gotten
19:30 heal all at the same time but he was he
19:33 was limited in scope by by his his
19:37 physical being being where he was you
19:41 know I mean he had all this power but
19:44 but he chose to inhabit a body but we
19:52 being many having that same power the
19:56 Holy Spirit can do the work efficiently
20:01 because we can be in many places at many
20:04 times and this was God's plan this is
20:07 what God wanted to do this is why Jesus
20:09 said it's expedient for me to go you
20:13 know and so I can send the Holy Spirit
20:16 the devil had no idea how complicated
20:19 his task would become so many Jesuses
20:22 in so many places doing what Jesus did
20:25 you know it's hilarious when you think
20:27 about it remember what Jesus said all
20:31 authority is given unto me in heaven and
20:34 on earth
20:35 so go teach heal the sick cast out
20:39 Devils speak with new tongues all of
20:41 these things he wants us to just go and
20:44 and do the things that that he did now
20:48 let's talk about speaking in tongues for
20:51 a second this is a very unique gift
20:56 because with it we can speak directly to
20:59 God without our intellect getting in the
21:03 way according to 1st 1st Corinthians
21:07 14:14 it says for if I pray in a tongue
21:11 my spirit prays but my understanding is
21:16 unfruitful verse 15 says I will pray
21:19 with a spirit I will pray with my
21:22 understanding also I will sing with the
21:24 spirit and I will sing with the
21:26 understanding also
21:28 Jude 20 says but you beloved building up
21:33 yourselves on your most holy faith
21:34 praying in the Holy Spirit and then
21:38 Romans says likewise the spirit also
21:41 helps in our weakness for we we do not
21:44 know what we should pray for as we ought
21:46 to but the Spirit Himself makes
21:49 intercession for us with groanings which
21:52 cannot be uttered now he who searches
21:55 the hearts knows what the mind of the
21:57 Spirit is because listen to this he
22:00 makes intercession for the Saints
22:02 according to the will of God you know
22:06 1st Corinthians 14:2 he speaks he who
22:11 speaks in a tongue does not speak to man
22:13 but he speaks to God and verse 4 hew
22:18 speaks in a tongue edifies himself so
22:20 what is speaking in tongues do it allows
22:24 me to speak directly to God it allows me
22:28 to bypass my understanding and my
22:31 intellect it allows me to build up my
22:34 faith it allows Holy Spirit to intercede
22:38 for me it allows me to pray according to
22:43 the will of God and it Elif ëismí I'm
22:46 sure there's other things in there that
22:48 it does too but these are just some of
22:51 the things that I found so for myself I
22:55 made a decision years ago to pray in the
23:00 spirit as much and as often as I can
23:04 so if I'm driving in my car by myself
23:08 I'm I'm praying in the spirit if I'm
23:12 waiting at the mall you know because
23:15 Lynn is shopping and I'm waiting I'm
23:19 praying in the spirit you know if I mean
23:22 if I'm walking if I'm walking down the
23:25 street here you know like a lot of times
23:27 when when Lynn and I will go for a walk
23:29 we're both just walking praying in the
23:32 spirit you know what in Thailand when
23:35 you know there were several times when
23:38 we were in the car and it in a taxi or
23:41 transport
23:41 for an hour or two just going from one
23:44 place to another and both Larry Larry
23:47 and I would both be sitting on the seat
23:50 staring out the windows and I could hear
23:53 him praying in the spirit and I was
23:54 praying in the spirit you know it's just
23:56 we're edifying ourselves we're talking
24:00 my spirits talking to God
24:02 you know I'm building up my faith that's
24:05 what would this that's what we're doing
24:07 so you know Bible says to pray without
24:10 ceasing in first Thessalonians 5:17
24:13 I think praying in the spirit is the
24:15 only way to accomplish that you know
24:18 with without when you pray with your
24:21 understanding either you're gonna ramble
24:25 repetitively or you're gonna for me
24:31 maybe 15 20 minutes I'll run out of
24:34 words you know and then am I done
24:38 you know when I pray in the spirit I can
24:40 pray for hours at a time hours at a time
24:43 and you know I'm driving them down the
24:49 road and I see an accident almost always
24:53 up I'll pray in the spirit you know I
24:56 don't know what's going on there I don't
24:58 know if anybody's injured but the Lord
25:00 knows you know so I can I can join my
25:04 faith to that by praying in the spirit
25:06 and because God knows the details of
25:09 every situation
25:10 I'll also discover that singing in the
25:14 spirit is a great way to begin writing
25:17 songs of Scripture what I do is I'll
25:22 choose a scripture promise that I want
25:27 to write a song from and then I'll start
25:29 singing singing in the spirit just just
25:33 make a melody in my heart singing in the
25:36 spirit and then I'll plug in the
25:38 scripture words you know to that same
25:41 melody and sometimes it works and
25:44 sometimes it doesn't but you know with a
25:48 little practice it you know it does work
25:50 so we we linear I we've been
25:55 learning to use the gifts of the Holy
25:57 Spirit
25:59 especially healing prophecy discerning
26:01 of spirits words of wisdom and knowledge
26:03 you know we've got a long way to go but
26:09 we're asking God to fill us with and
26:11 empower us with these gifts you know and
26:15 he is and he's doing that you know so we
26:18 just want to be more proficient at using
26:22 gifts
26:23 we should all be asking to be filled to
26:27 be refilled there's there's no point at
26:31 which the Heavenly Father is going to
26:32 say to you know no more holy spear a now
26:35 yeah he's he's never gonna run out you
26:39 know the we will never be lacking in
26:45 holy spirit power you know the fact is
26:48 that God can create new additions of
26:52 gifts for us you know like new toys you
26:55 know healing new improved healing
26:59 SuperDuper healing you know all kind I
27:03 can do anything he wants like my friend
27:06 Larry learn how to scan people when he
27:11 prays
27:13 he'll scan people was his hinge
27:16 oh well almost like a cat scanner or a
27:21 PET scan you know and and and the Lord
27:24 showed him how to do that or he'll blow
27:27 on them you know I learned how to do
27:30 that too in Thailand you know and and
27:32 and so God is creative you know when I
27:39 was in Thailand I was praying for a lady
27:41 that was dizzy and she she had I don't
27:45 know some kind of vertical thing and I
27:48 prayed you know and nothing happened
27:52 I prayed nothing happened so I said okay
27:56 turn around so you turned around I said
28:01 how do you feel this is I'm still dizzy
28:05 turn around again how do you feel I'm
28:07 still dizzy then and then the Lord said
28:10 okay I ever turn the other way
28:11 she had her turn this way all around and
28:13 the dizziness went away you know it's
28:16 like God has created if he can do
28:19 whatever he wants whenever he wants
28:22 however he wants you know and so all
28:25 these gifts are available for us to use
28:29 in many different fashions I'm gonna
28:33 tell you a little story there was a guy
28:38 who is taken up into heaven and he's
28:42 walking around and and and the angel is
28:46 showing him around and it comes across
28:49 the door and his name is on the door so
28:53 you asked the angel what what's that all
28:56 about is this where I'm supposed to be
28:59 here whatever this is my house and the
29:02 angel says he opens the door and and
29:06 there's a giant warehouse you know and
29:10 all these shelves are in there and
29:12 there's there's stacks of gifts in there
29:18 but then in between the gifts they're
29:20 they're empty spots here and there and
29:23 he says what is this place
29:26 and and he says these are all the gifts
29:29 that the father has prepared for you you
29:33 know and he says the empty places are
29:38 where the gifts were that you actually
29:41 opened and used you know but all the
29:45 rest of them some of them we delivered
29:48 to you and you know you didn't receive
29:53 them you didn't open them and so you
29:57 know return to sender so here they are
30:01 you know so he was blown away from that
30:03 so so God is a giver of all good gifts
30:07 and he gives him freely to us he wants
30:11 he's he's looking for occasions to give
30:14 us more gifts and the more gifts we owe
30:17 the more gifts we use the more he gives
30:20 us and it's a never-ending flow it's
30:24 like the stewards with the ten talents
30:28 the five talents the one talent you know
30:31 you don't want to be the person that
30:33 doesn't open the gift you don't want to
30:35 be the person that just berries the
30:37 berries of talent in the ground you want
30:40 to be the person that says hey well hey
30:42 look I got five five talents so I'm
30:44 gonna gonna go use them and well look I
30:47 have five more you know that's how God
30:50 is he will continue to pour up more and
30:54 more to us the more we used our gifts
30:58 and when we use the gifts the the Holy
31:05 Spirit gifts it glorifies God and it
31:10 advances his kingdom you know and that's
31:15 how we partner with God by advancing his
31:18 kingdom by using the gifts that he gives
31:21 us you know we can't we can't do
31:24 anything in the flesh we can't do
31:25 anything on our own we have to be
31:30 empowered by Holy Spirit but he is
31:33 available 24/7 with gifts for us to use
31:38 you know at any time for any purpose you
31:43 know to advance his kingdom no I I heard
31:47 I heard another testimony from a friend
31:50 of mine and she's a seer she's a
31:53 prophetess and she went to a local
31:56 church and she walked in and lining the
32:02 walls were all these angels ministering
32:07 angels it's thought the ones that are
32:10 about six feet tall and they they have
32:12 white robes and they have like a gold
32:13 band like this that's kind of how they
32:15 dress so that they're all waiting that
32:20 they were waiting to be used to be
32:23 assigned a task you know and and and
32:29 in Hebrews it talks about that that the
32:32 angels are are there to help us
32:36 especially in ministry there that you
32:38 know if you're in ministry you can call
32:40 on the Angelica hosts to help you I do
32:43 this all the time when I'm leading in
32:45 worship I always ask the Lord to send
32:50 angels to help me you know and and they
32:53 do you know I
32:54 occasion I can hear them you know
32:57 they're singing along and but what
33:01 happened at this church it's at the end
33:04 of the service all the angels were still
33:09 standing there no one had asked for
33:12 their help no one had given them an
33:14 assignment nothing they just stood there
33:18 they were the she said it was the
33:20 saddest thing she's ever seen you know
33:22 and I believe her you know so heaven
33:27 heaven is fully equipped heaven is fully
33:30 supplied you know the angels are fully
33:33 prepared the gifts have been wrapped
33:35 they're ready to hand out Holy Spirit
33:38 has received his assignment to come
33:41 alongside us to help you know the the
33:44 question is are we going to ask for help
33:46 you know are we going to ask for gifts
33:50 to use in ministry I think we need to
33:55 learn how to partner with Holy Spirit
33:58 more than we do you know to do the works
34:02 of Jesus we have to be moving in the
34:05 power of the Spirit and to be moving in
34:07 the power of the Spirit to do the works
34:09 of Jesus to be little Jesus's everywhere
34:13 that we go we have to be moving in the
34:18 power of the Spirit and the bet the only
34:21 way I know how to do that is to ask him
34:24 for help you know and every time we were
34:30 in a ministry situation Lord I need I
34:36 need wisdom here and he can give you
34:38 word wisdom I mean I need to know what's
34:42 what's going on
34:43 here you know he can give you a word of
34:45 knowledge you know when I was in
34:50 Thailand there was a there was a lady
34:53 that she couldn't walk very well and she
35:00 was like she had this scowl on her face
35:03 and so so me and AJ my interpreter we're
35:09 praying for her and and nothing was
35:12 happening she couldn't move her you know
35:15 and so so as we were praying that the
35:19 the pastor came up said this lady is
35:23 demon-possessed I said oh okay okay
35:28 she's demon-possessed
35:29 so AJ's talking to her and finds out she
35:37 she's never been baptized in water so we
35:42 immediately you know was like so
35:45 immediately we asked the pastor to come
35:49 back and says I think she needs to be
35:51 baptized in water I believe that that
35:53 was a word of wisdom you know so so they
35:59 whisked her away in about five minutes
36:00 they brought her back soaking wet they
36:05 had found a place to baptize it's there
36:07 so so she's sitting there on a chair
36:09 again but this time she's smiling you
36:14 know and so we pray cast out the demon
36:17 and prayed for her legs and so she's
36:19 walk now she's walking around the room
36:21 and smiling and I mean everything
36:23 changed just just like that everything
36:26 changed so the gift of healing was
36:28 manifest you know the discerning of
36:31 spirits the the all of that was was
36:35 manifest so various different gifts of
36:38 the Spirit so what we need to remember
36:44 like what Jesus what Peter said on the
36:47 day of Pentecost it says the promise of
36:50 Holy Spirit is for you for your children
36:53 and to all who are far off
36:56 many as the Lord our God shall call you
37:00 know we need to be filled with the
37:02 spirit we need to repent we need to have
37:07 our sins forgiven which I can do just
37:10 like that we need to be filled we need
37:12 to be refilled we need to be refilled
37:15 some of you that came in a little later
37:17 I was talking earlier about how how the
37:22 Jesus came and and after he was
37:26 resurrected from the dead but before he
37:28 was actually ascended into heaven he
37:32 breathed on his disciples and said
37:35 received the Holy Spirit
37:37 so this was before the day of Pentecost
37:40 then on the day of Pentecost
37:42 of course the Spirit was poured out and
37:45 everybody was was had tongues of fire on
37:48 them and they in the spoken tongues and
37:51 and and other people were interpreting
37:55 the tongues and then and then Peter was
37:58 prophesying to everybody and then a few
38:03 days later something else happened Peter
38:06 and John were in the temple and they
38:10 healed the lame man and soon after that
38:14 they were persecuted so after they were
38:18 persecuted they they got together with
38:22 other disciples and prayed and asked the
38:25 Lord to help them and it says and they
38:31 were filled with a spirit so this this
38:34 is a same group of people three times
38:37 the disciples Jesus breathing on them
38:41 they received the spirit the day of
38:44 Pentecost they were there filled with
38:48 the spirit and then they were persecuted
38:50 and prayed and they were filled with the
38:52 spirit again so it tells me something
38:54 tells me that we can ask and be filled
39:00 be refilled be refilled be refilled I
39:03 think we need to be refilled because we
39:05 leak you know Holy Spirit was out of us
39:09 you know and so
39:09 you need to be filled up again you know
39:11 so it's like this is if if I can leave
39:18 anything with you is to pursue pursue
39:24 pursue the holy spirit and and in first
39:31 Corinthians chapter 14 it says to pursue
39:34 the gifts you know but especially to
39:37 prophecy because when you prophesy you
39:39 can edify the church but but to pursue
39:42 speaking in tongues and all of that you
39:45 know when you feel with the spirit when
39:47 you know when you get close to Jesus he
39:53 will manifest the the fruits in your
39:57 life to you you you'll experience joy
40:01 love you know long-suffering and all of
40:04 these things so some of you may may not
40:11 have ever received the Holy Spirit if
40:14 you haven't ever been filled with the
40:17 Holy Spirit
40:18 nobody prayed with you if you don't
40:20 speak in tongues you need to you know
40:24 and so if you if you don't then come
40:28 forward and we'll pray for you but even
40:32 those who have come for prayer as well
40:36 as those who are here to minister all of
40:40 us need to be filled all listening to be
40:43 refilled you know I don't know how often
40:47 you need to be refilled I guess it's
40:50 often as you need to be refilled you
40:53 know and as often as you need it he will
40:55 fill you
40:57 let's pray Heavenly Father I just thank
41:02 you for your grace and your mercy and
41:04 your kindness to us look god I thank you
41:07 that that your mercies are new every
41:10 morning that we live Lord that every day
41:14 Lord goodness and mercy follows us and
41:17 Lord God that I thank you that that when
41:21 when you
41:22 sent it to heaven you sent Holy Spirit
41:25 to come and dwell with us to impart to
41:29 us gifts and fruit and to help us in our
41:35 lives Lord to convict us of sin and of
41:39 righteousness as well our God and so
41:42 though we submit ourselves to you and we
41:46 ask you Lord fill us again with your
41:50 Holy Spirit Lord that we would be
41:52 overflowing with the love of Jesus Lord
41:56 God so that we can make a dynamic
41:58 difference everywhere we go so we can do
42:02 the works of Jesus so that we can do
42:05 greater works then you did Lord we give
42:09 you praise in Jesus name Amen god bless
42:15 you
