DAY 2- THE FULLNESS OF THE SPIRIT WITH REV. TOM AMENKHIENAN Highlights 2a Your spirit and the Holy Spirit have become fused together as one. You need to develop yourself to deploy your full potentials and be all that God has made you. Knowledge is vital for this to be a reality in your life! 1Cor 2:12 - Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are 'freely' given to us of God. The Spirit of the world is the Spirit of death, failure, despondency, poverty but we have received LIFE! God does not take pleasure when his children beg or fast to get anything from him. This knowledge is vital; through knowledge the just is delivered-not from Satan but into his inheritance. Col 1:13- we have been translated into the Kingdom of God's dear son. HEALTH has been freely given to us. Is it possible to constantly live in health? Absolutely! (3Jn 2). God's idea is that we should minister healing to others. Poverty is not God's will for his children. When you recieve the Holy Spirit, your life ceases to be ordinary. Weak Christianity will not take you anywhere. You have been filled with the Holy Spirit for a purpose.
THE FULLNESS OF THE SPIRIT WITH REV. TOM AMENKHIENAN Highlights Day1 The Month of March has indeed been The Month of Insight especially for the brethren in Christ Embassy Chicago and Central Group. Our Highly Esteemed Regional Pastor through the word has given us deep insight into the Ministry of the Holy Spirit in our lives at the on-going programme 'The Fullness of the Spirit'. Jn 14:15-17 'If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. The Holy Spirit is all that Jesus is to us and more. He is a person. He is the 'Spirit of truth'. The one who is not born again cannot know Him, see Him or recieve him. The Holy Spirit is another Comforter just like Jesus. (alos parakletos). He is our counsellor, intercessor, Advocate, helper, standby, Strengthner, Comforter. When you know the Holy Spirit you will say like David...'I am marvelously helped'. The Spirit of God helps you to pray. Human words are not adequate/ pure enough to communicate with a Holy God so we need a heavenly language to do so. The believer who is not filled with the Holy Spirit can barely cope with the pressures and challenges of life. We recieve strength through the ministry of the Holy Spirit to win always. While the devil is the accuser of the brethren, the Holy Spirit is our advocate. Our dear Man of God highlighting the diverse ministry of the Holy Spirit in our lives as believers using apt examples stirred in the heart of everyone present a deep hunger to fellowship more with Him. Those present who were not yet filled with the Spirit came foward to be ministered to and gloriously spoke in other tongues! Hallelujah.
