February 2021 Partner Letter
If there ever was a time when we need the power of the Holy Spirit, it is NOW – in this day and age. God wants every Christian filled to overflowing with His Holy Spirit. Yes, to edify you and empower you and enable you to speak mysteries by the Spirit. But He also NEEDS you. Why would God need YOU? You and I are His vessels upon the earth, His ambassadors and agents. It is through US that He accomplishes His will on the earth.
The disciples had been with Jesus and experienced some limited success, but it was only AFTER the day of Pentecost when they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke in tongues that they turned the whole world upside down (or right side up!).
After His resurrection, Jesus appeared to them and said, “…Receive the Holy Spirit.” (John 20:22) The last thing He said to them before He ascended was, “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you…” (Acts 1:8) They were told to wait in Jerusalem for this to happen, and the outpouring and infilling happened on the day of Pentecost. “And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” (Acts 2:4)
Now some have said that this was only for a certain few, the special, the disciples who had been with Jesus. It is not necessary for today. If we don’t need all the power of the Holy Spirit now, when will we???? Look at Acts 2:39 (AMPC), Peter said: “For the promise [of the Holy Spirit] is to and for you and your children, and to and for all that are far away, [even] to and for as many as the Lord our God invites and bids to come to Himself.”
Study it for yourself through the book of Acts. It was the power of the Holy Spirit working through men and women that accomplished the miracles, signs and wonders. And it is through the power of the Holy Spirit that we are being called upon today to accomplish the works of God on this earth. There is a great spiritual revival that has begun! If you have never received the infilling of the Holy Spirit and spoken in tongues, NOW IS THE TIME! Allow the Holy Spirit to fill you and flow through you. Begin speaking in the language of the Spirit. Speak mysteries unto God and as you pray under the unction of the Spirit, you will be calling to pass the will and purpose of God in this earth!
RECEIVE YE THE HOLY SPIRIT!
Your Partner in Christ,
