A man on Genesis chapter 1 only go there and ask chapter 2, I want to talk about pentacles this morning. You know the Holy Spirit today is more ignored than he is denied relegating him to a back room somewhere. If there's any tongue speech seems like people feel like they have to explain themselves. I think pastors do that.

It breaks my heart. I think about when Jesus went into the temple and he saw them selling animals for sacrifice resolve the dishonesty that was going on but he also sold them K Jean Dobbs, would you think about that for a moment caging a dove a dove representing the Holy Spirit and I believe that's what angered him and the Bible says he release those doves and he began to take a whip and drive them out of the temple so the Holy Ghost is important to God's house and to the warship of Almighty God. A man and all the talk about the Holy Ghost is marked Genesis chapter 1 verse one so glad you're here of your visitor. Thank God that you're here a minute. This is the greatest church on the planet. In my book so so glad you're here.

Genesis chapter 1 verse one in the beginning God was a baseball fan a man. This is the beginning all right in the beginning God jump God created the heaven and the earth.

Verse two and the earth was without form and void. The earth was empty. It was void and darkness was upon the face of the deep and the Spirit of God jump, the Holy Ghost moved upon the face of the waters, and in the next verse. I like this one, he said, let there be light, and light was, but he did create the sun, moon or stars until they number four, a man so I want you to see how the spirit of God moved upon a dark empty void situation and brought life and light to it that I think about John wanted one works is in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the word was God the same was in the beginning with God without him wasn't anything made that was made in him was light and that light was the light life was the light of men. And the light shines in darkness and the darkness comprehended it not. So the very low-cost the expression of God Amen was the spirit of God being declared even in the beginning when the spirit of God moved on the water. It brought life and light to this people, planet, and that's the same thing that happens in your life. Maybe there's darkness in your life.

Maybe it is a cloud hanging over your head may be your past seems to drag on your coattails, but aren't you glad that we have the Holy Ghost meant that he doesn't only have to come upon you, but he can live on the inside of you.

Praise God exchequer to go there with me asked to John here we go I'm ready. I'm telling you, ask chapter 2 verse one and let's read together.

We know this Dunkley and when the day of Pentecost was fully come, Pentecost intimating 50th this was the 50th day after the Passover. The Passover being the Lord having the last supper with his disciples, and of course the next morning he's put on a Roman cross die for the sins of the whole world.

He resurrected's shall he's alive. He walked this earth for 40 days and did 10 days later we have the day of Pentecost 50th. All right, also called the feast of weeks feast of firstfruits, but here we are. Men Jewish men and women coming together from all corners of Judeo and that the Roman Empire coming together for the feast of Pentecost when it was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place who relate that's the disciples that's the hundred and 20 that he told to Terry until you be endued with power from on high. I like what he said in acts 146 is being assembled together with them, he commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the father.

Now when we think about weight we think we just need to stop and watch and wait. But when the like.

The Scripture says they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength they shall mount up with wings like eagles run and nothing really walk and not faint.

We think that may just be patient and wait, but know what weight means is like a waitress you're serving your worshiping your honoring. Yes, you may be waiting for. But while you're writing your serving and worshiping and praising and praying the living God. And that's what they were doing and he says for John truly baptized with water, but it you verse five. Acts one shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. I like that shout baptized, not just filled with the Holy Ghost, but baptized with the Holy Ghost. That was the promise that he told them to wait for so we go to chapter 2 in verse two they were in one mind and want to court help me realize that in order for us to see a move of the spirit we have to be one mind, one heart and one according to unity together. It's hard to be in unity with one another when you're mad at people. It's hard to be in unity when you carry offense in your heart toward somebody there's people sitting at this church right now your Holy Ghost filled the talk in tongues you worship and magnify God but your holding offense toward somebody and the Lord cannot and will not accept her sacrifice of praise in order for the spirit of God to move on this situation move upon this church move upon the new work that we want to do in Winston-Salem.

We have to be in one mind and one accord with one vision, one mission, one cell is hard for the things of God you believe that shout yes all right, verse two, and suddenly shot suddenly suddenly moment you just need God to do it right now is God you been waiting for a long time manager about telling you when you get your mind and heart set on the things of God and you go after him.

Despite your circumstances are suddenly moment it could happen at any time, and suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind. Jesus said in John. Talking to Nick Nicodemus. He said the wind blows where it wishes nobody knows where it comes from or how it comes or how it goes.

Same as the spirit of God coming upon your heart and give her talk to somebody and it was like talking to a wall. You try to tell them about Jesus, but that they just don't get it.

They just don't see it but just can't understand how God would become a man die on a cross resurrect to give you and I life the reason I don't understand.

That is because they are blinded to it. The Holy Spirit has to unveil. That's why anytime you're witnessing to somebody talking to your family, coworkers, whoever they are.

You must you must be anointed with the Holy Ghost. In order for anything to happen in their lives.

I don't care how smart you are, how much scripture you can quote eye movement of God "books of the Bible. They got letters by their name so big it looks like alphabet soup, but when they did an appropriate there a six-foot tall icicle Caitlin anybody to Christ.

And here's the reason why because they don't have the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Are you saying I needed to go to heaven. Absolutely not. But if you want to do kingdom service in this last day you must have a fresh power from on high ministry there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind all the house where they were sitting. You know I don't understand everything about the Holy Ghost, which I did.

I read several books on my goodness, look at my Bible here. I've been there a timer to heaven. I but I still don't understand everything about them.

Just know he loves me. I know I've grieved him, I've upset him by the way I've lived where I've went what I've done what I've looked at the decisions I've made and I also know that he was right there with me the whole time because he will never leave you nor forsake you. But he will be with you.

Hallelujah. Notice the word wind their members. When you look at the word spirit in the Old Testament you have rock which is the breath of God, the very breath of God when he created Adam out of the dust of the ground. The Bible says he breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul. At that moment in time.

By the spirit in the presence and power of God to rule out the window.

God, a man hallelujah and filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it set upon each of them until I read that verse I think about Isaiah form verse four that calls him the spirit of burning hallelujah the spirit of burning Malachi 3 says is like a refiner's fire.

First Peter 17 that the trial of your faith be much more precious than gold that parishes let me try by fire might be found in the praise, honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ. First Peter four.

Think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you like some strange thing is happened to you the fire of God purges doesn't it's all what you imagine these men and women with tongues of fire literally sitting upon their head representing the flame and power of the Holy Ghost.

I think about Jeremiah when he said this word of God is like fire shut up in my bones that I could not stay a man in a Pentecostal fever didn't hunt.

Olivia blurted verse number four and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost not to think about something because Jesus said that they would be baptized but here the Scripture says that they work feel with the Holy Ghost, but I want you to understand that it's the distinction of being feel with the spirit and being baptized in the spirit there's a lot of people sitting here today I believe your filled with the Holy Ghost, the spirit of God, but I don't know if you're baptized you. So how do I know let's read and began verse four to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. I want to think about this. There was assigned to the covenant of God here, with the promise of the Holy Spirit, the baptism of the spirit accompanied by wind, fire and tone speech you say why I don't know why, so we did to the Scriptures and we think about scriptures like the power of life and death is in our tone proper starting to make chili good by the fruit of his lips by what he says what comes out of his mouth. Jesus said that every idle word that comes out of your mouth you will give an account for on the day of judgment.

James chapter 3, James tells us that there's one part of the body that we cannot ever tame and a little spark from that little tongue will cause a force fire. That's what he said you can control your mouth you dried average in because what is in your heart is going to come out of your mouth.

Now they were seeking God they will they work but not it just wasn't casually seeking him, they were seeking him with their whole heart, with everything within them to see a move of the Spirit to experience the promise of the father and as they were praying as they were worshiping. That's when the spirit of God came into that place and filled them with the Holy Ghost, and they spoke with tongues. We go to acts chapter 10 we see that Peter is sent to the household of Cornelius and he's there to preach the gospel to the Gentiles. Little did he know that while he was preaching in acts chapter 10 the Bible says the Holy Ghost fell on them about.

I love you I love the old-timers and they say Holy Ghost fall on me. I used to beg myself.

What these are my present. How does he fall on you and show me something in the Scripture that not only is he on my prison, but he has a manifest presence that would be so well makes everyone a standard that manifest presence we would be like Isaiah when he said I am a man of unclean lips somebody forgive me of my sin, we would be like John the Revelation say were falling out in the spirit is a biblical being slain in the spirit isn't in the Bible alive beg to differ because John the river later saw the glory of God.

He said I could not stand in his presence beg to differ. Some of you just got your tone with.

I want you to stick your whole food and get knee-deep really stayed over your head and be what Jesus said in the last thing a great day of the feast vitamin coming to me and truly believe upon me, as the Scripture said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living in a dry and thirsty time in my life.

The spirit of God will I'm trying to do this cordial I am. Every Sunday I did appear awesome to have a nice little sermon chillout but I am who I am a man I got it loud, I'm just excited about what God is doing.

A man so little did Peter know is is preaching and asked him that the Holy Ghost would fall on the when the Holy Ghost fell. The Bible says they begin to speak with tongues, and magnify God. So it wasn't relegated just to the apostles. It was for every party limited acts 19. The apostle Paul. He goes to Ephesus and John the Baptist as disciples of their and he goes to them and he says well I know your saved you been baptized with John's baptism, which was the baptism of repentance receiving Christ as Lord and Master, but he says have you received the Holy Ghost since you believed in their response to him was we didn't even know that there be Holy Ghost you talking about.

You see the early days of Pentecost. Here's what they did you see the day of Pentecost. Fast-forward to about the 19th century. You have a band of Baptist brothers in the Appalachian mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee and they get together. They say you know what there's got to be something more to what were experiencing the everyday dry religion that we experience every Sunday and they got together.

They said you know what would I have a prayer meeting and they begin to pray and seek the face of God. And suddenly, just like in the book of acts. They record that a sound from heaven touch that place and they were finger would baptize with the Holy Ghost, and spoke with tongues, and magnify God.

Fast-forward 20 years later.

That group called the Christian Union became the church of God, of which you and I are affiliated with today started up in the boom box of Appalachian North Carolina and it still flourishing the bay with some 6 million people adhering to a couple Baptist brothers got together and said I just want to see a move of God. We see throughout the 20th century. In the 50s and 60s. You see the healing revival of men like AA Allen and William Brenneman to yell loudly and RW sandbox sitting tents all over this country seen people healed, set free saved by the power of God through healing miracle signs and wonders in the 1970s and 80s.

Pentecostals took it to television Trinity broadcasting network Christian television swept this country have been in the 90s and the 2000 you see Pentecostals being called Negro Pentecostals because they want to get away from mainline denominations who are legally listed. All they want to do is seek God and be holy and be righteous.

I want to live a little bit so I got a little loose and started independent works all over this country and now you have them everywhere and the problem with that is there's just no accountability any man can say what he wants to say when he wants to say. I would argue that you need somebody to help you and put you in live when you but in the early days, they took the message of Pentecost to the towns. Now we want to go to cities. That's what everybody is back in the day they come to King was a Moravian church of the street, a Baptist Church of the street for five Baptist churches at the street, a Methodist Church of the road. Presbyterian Church in town Church of the Nazarene. The Catholic Church, so these Pentecostal brothers that would come to town and they would preach the message of Pentecost. The message of the Holy Spirit, but we got away from preaching the message and now we went to methods for biology to try to get people to come to church and then when they get here were so scared were going to offend them by the Holy Ghost because you might get excited and take a lap around the diffuser dance a little jig or speak with tongues. I've made up my mind go ahead and do it God just do it. I want life. I would much rather have wildfires in the far and I don't say that cautiously anymore.

Amen. Next in the Holy Ghost failed will feel the Holy Ghost spoke with tongues, acts 19 they said we haven't heard that there be Holy Ghost in the Bible says that Paul laid his hands upon the end, they received the Holy Ghost. And guess what they did spoke with tongues, and magnify God.

They would ask chapter 8 and we read about Philip the evangelist. He goes to Samaria and he preaches the gospel to the and the Bible said there was a man there who followed them around by the name of Simon who was a sorcerer who did great magic and sorcery in front of the people he got saved and all the people sought and they said man. This is surprising because he was one of the biggest sorcerers in town but now he's renounced that given his heart to Jesus Christ didn't stop there. Peter and John heard about this revival in Samaria all the way in Jerusalem.

I just I got a text so they headed down to Samaria and when I got there they said the boys received the Holy Ghost and the Bible says they laid hands on them and they received the Holy Ghost, but it does not say they spoke with tongues, but here's what it does say that Simon the sorcerer saw something when he saw them being healed. He already sold that maybe saw the devil Castelli already sought maybe saw people just giving your heart to Christ crying forgot dorsal. What do you think he saw because the Bible says, he said I want that gift I want to live rightly hands on this event receive lot in the Bible says he tried to buy the gift of God with money at slick son and apostle says you can't buy this gift with money. What do you think he saw his life and I think he saw what happened and ask chapter 2 I believe he saw what happened in acts chapter 10 I believe he saw what happened in acts chapter 19th and you say, but I can see you believe that speaking with tongues is the evidence of the spirit baptism all yes I do and I put it to you like this I would not want anything less that what happened in acts chapter 2, I don't want anything less than what happened in acts chapter 10 I don't want anything less than what happened in acts chapter 19 I believe that it's not asked to verse 12. After this happened the men from all the Judean area of the Roman Empire came and they heard them speaking in their own language magnify.verse 12.

They were all amazed and worn down, saying one to another. This is me. Others mocking said, these men are full of new wine. These are just a bunch of drunks.

But Peter, standing up with the 1111 lifted up his voice and said unto them, you made of Judeo and all that dwell in Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words, for these are not drunk, as you suppose.

In other words, he is saying. The other girl is what he said is is yes there drunk, but not like you suppose not like your used to because it's only the third hour of the day it's only 9 o'clock in the morning buddy, but this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel and it shall come to pass in the last they say. If not, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and daughters sons and daughters in here.

They shall prophesy, and declare the works of God. Men will dream dreams. Let me tell you something to drink something. Why don't you believe God to fill this place up with those who are hurting and die and destitute in need of a Savior.

Young men shall see visions upon my servants and handmaidens, the lowest of the low in the highest of the high will I pour out my spirit upon them. Was he say he was saying this is for everybody know many of you if you spoke with tongues. 20 years ago, but you haven't since it's time to freshen filling your a man. I know a lot of fun to get baptized again and water. Maybe they went away from God, and they recommitted and they want to show the world once again that they belong to Jesus. I believe we should do the same thing with the baptism of the Holy Ghost. A man maybe it's been a long time. Amen.

Freshen filling shut.

I Want Our Pl., God let's go to verse 36 therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God hath made that same Jesus.

Now Peter starts preaching a sermon, I want to think about Peter for a moment. This Peter was a coward. He denied the Lord three times.

He cussed out a little girl said he didn't belong to Jesus, but he was Jesus's right-hand man, but here he is, after receiving the Holy Ghost.

He's got the boldness to stand up and declare the gospel. Notice what he says the same Jesus, God has made the same Jesus, whom you crucified Lord and Christ. Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and the rest of the apostles, men and brethren, what shall we do then Peter said unto them repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost for the promise is unto you and to your children.

The promises only to the apostles and those who lived during the apostles time so he said the promises to everybody that lives before the Bible was put together. That's what I've heard none of his promises unto you to your children and to all that are far off even as many as the Lord our God shall call, and he's called you I'm telling you nobody is ever been born to be lost. Nobody is ever been born that could not be saved every man, boy and girl that is ever been born on this people plaintiff has the opportunity to come to Jesus Christ and be born again.

They came to him in darkness and less than like they came to him in slavery and left and son ship. They came to them in bondage and left in freedom.

They taper maleficent (they came from and the powers of iniquity left and the power of righteousness. They came time to sit and they left him and he horrible as your hands and praise him from verse 40 and with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, save yourselves from this untoward generation than they that gladly received him and his word were baptized in the same day were added about 3000 souls that started the church right there with God.

A man could ask for closer ventless. Something powerful happened on this day of Pentecost because it commemorates the giving of the law on Mount Sinai 50 days after Moses put the blood on the door posts in the wind into the wilderness walk through the Red Sea on dry ground there in that wilderness. 50 days after that, he goes up on Mount Sinai and he receives the tablets of stone with the 10 Commandments and you know the Bible says in the book of Exodus that 3000 people lost their lives that day because of the power and majesty of God, and he said don't come to this mountain, but look at the converse of that annex. Chapter 2 the Holy Ghost now puts the law on our heart and 3000 come to the faith.

Something powerful happened on that day, a man you want to be a powerful witness for God. You need the Holy Ghost you want an effective prayer life. You need the Holy Ghost because it's only sometimes you don't know how to pray you don't know what the will of God is. But the Bible says that he will make intercession for you and through you with groanings that cannot be uttered. Languages you don't even understand where you can't even bring forth it may be assigned a mold acquirer time God knows exactly what it is you know why because the Holy Ghost is playing the perfect will of God for you and through you and you said yes X number four will close with this email. My daughter is my wife was that he mean when he says his closing and she looked at her and said doesn't mean a thing in the world.


All right raised doing good here. Ask for verse one. Now Peter and John there fired up for the Holy Ghost and is expected of the people the priest and the captain of the temple and the Sadducees came up on the being grieved that they taught the people and preach to Jesus the resurrection from the dead and they laid hands on them and put them in hold on to the next day put them in jail for the night. Britt was now eventide, howbeit many of them were which heard the word believed and the number of the men was about 5000 shot a man and it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers and elders inscribed in Annas the high priest and Caiaphas and John Alexander has many as were the kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem. And when they had set them in the midst, they asked by what power or by what name have you done this, then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, that yes he is in and say yes I said unto them, you rulers of the people and elders of Israel.

If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole. Referring to chapter 3. Be it known unto you all and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him that this man stand here before you whole. Hallelujah to be Pentecostal means that you place preeminence on the Lord Jesus Christ Pentecost being Pentecostals more than talking into it's more than a shout to dance being Pentecostals means that you declare the Lordship of Jesus Christ and that he is the center of your witnessing your preaching or teaching Jesus Christ, amen. That's what Peter was doing. He said it's in the name of Jesus Christ. This man stand here verse 11. This is the stone which was set at naught of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other. All about to shout, for there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be so in a Pentecostal believer understands that that Jesus Christ is the truth of my was 14 and holding the man which was healed standing with them. They couldn't say a word.

Let this place Philip let people start getting healed, set free from addiction and bondage and call me crazy all they want to but I can't deny what's happening in people's lives. A man hallelujah they can't deny we will not be a church that's dying.

We will not be a church that's dry and cold and it all starts with you that starts with a sacrifice of praise from the mouth lifting it up to God claiming that Jesus Christ is our hallelujah and collaborates on finish up your counsel convert verse 16 say what shall we do to these men for that indeed a notable miracle has been done by them is manifest all them that dwell in Jerusalem, and we cannot deny that you were somebody to say that but that it spread no further among the people. Let us straightly threaten them, but they speak henceforth to no man in his name and they called them, he commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus or somebody told you that. But Peter and John answered and said unto them, whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you the God judge me for that. I don't care for. We cannot but speak the things which we have seen and I heard he was saying.

I'm so full of the Holy Ghost. I can't help but talk about Jesus Christ was 23 being let go. They went to their own company and reported all that the chief priests and the elders said unto them, jumped on verse 28 for to do whatsoever thy hand by counsel determined before to be done, and now Lord, they hold their threatenings and great under thy servants that with all boldness they may speak byword. Hallelujah, by stretching forth thine hand to heal and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of the holy child Jesus in verse 31 and when they had prayed, the place was shaken by God in heaven.

Are you reading what I'm reading, yes, they were baptized in acts chapter 2, but I look back to next chapter for just a couple of weeks later and there being field again.

The place was shaken. They were simple together and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost and speak the word of God with boldness and this is my prayer for this church and the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and one soul. Neither said any of them that had all the things which he possessed was his own, but they had all things common. Verse 34. Neither was there any among them that lacked standing to free hallelujah there watching by Internet listed by podcast, we challenge you today that you would simply surrender your life to Jesus Christ and I believe that God through Jesus Christ will baptize you in the Holy Ghost today.

I believe that if either by the Starbase to stretch her hand for the camera back there legibly got to do it right now. Father in the name of Jesus as they accept you and surrender their lives. I pray that you would give them a fresh and filling our first baptism of the Spirit and let them feel your anointing in your power, right where they are in Jesus name, filled them with the Holy Ghost. Given the light gift of speaking with tongues in the prayer language in Jesus name. Everybody shout yes thank you for watching and listening.

Praise God
