“You cannot have Christianity without the Holy Spirit!”
– John Bevere
“Churches who don’t teach, preach or involve themselves with the Holy Ghost in their services better order more donuts and coffee… your going to need them.”
– Reinhard Bonnke
“The chief danger that confronts the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost, Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration, politics without God, heaven without hell.”
– William Booth
“Many preach messages that never demand demonstrations. Let the Holy Ghost do His job!”
– Gordon Lindsay
The Book of Acts is not just the instruction book on how to live life through the Holy Ghost but also how to be mentored by the Holy Ghost! Christianity’s fraudulent behavior is a direct result of dismissing the Holy Ghost from the church! The Holy Spirit creates a close, mutual association between us and God.
The Holy Spirit took humanity’s disunity and recreated an atmosphere of “koininia”. Koinonia is the Greek word for FRIENDSHIP. It means fellowship, partnership and intimacy. That’s how Jesus became, “a friend that sticks closer than a brother.” The Holy Ghost brought the koinonia side of God into our lives. He also brought the kingdom world of the Father, that which Jesus prayed from and about in Matthew 6:9-13, into everyday realities.
Fellowship with God did not happen through forgiveness of sin, but through a relationship of righteousness. “RIGHTEOUSNESS” made fellowship with God possible. Intimacy is the deep side of of fellowship (2 Corinthians 13:13 MSG).
The Spirit yearns for our attention and fellowship (James 4:5). Let’s not keep Him waiting any longer!
So to all of us… Holy Ghost stay Your steady… and keep us ready!
