The Holy Spirit Is Our Guide
Living in the Spirit offers a comprehensive compilation of perspectives concerning the person and ministry of the Holy Spirit. George Wood’s ability to express orthodox Pentecostal theology in creative and refreshing ways is unique. He lucidly expresses his desire that Pentecostals resist being content with memories of powerful past encounters with the Spirit and instead seek to be overwhelmed by the Spirit and demonstrate the enduring evidence of His fullness.
Leading practitioners of Spirit Baptism from the Trinitarian Pentecostal Tradition share Biblical and practical reflections on the Spirit’s empowering. Special care is taken to address ministering Spirit Baptism in diverse contexts and age groups. An unprecedented resource for Pastors and prayer ministers.
The first Christians “turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6) shaking the gates of hell even in the face of severe persecution. The result: People all around “were filled with wonder and amazement” (Acts 3:10).What can give Christians today the same impact?
God’s Holy Spirit is ready to answer that for us in an awesome way, as Henry Blackaby and his son Mel Blackaby make clear in Experiencing the Spirit. You’ll see how the proof of the Spirit’s presence is our awareness of God’s personal assignments for us, plus our supernatural enablement to carry out those assignments.You’ll find essential clarification on the difference between natural talents and spiritual gifts. You’ll explore the dynamics of being filled with the Spirit through intimate relationship with Him, committed obedience, and radical departure from sin.
Instead of considering what you can do for God with your abilities and talents, you’ll be encouraged here to seek what God wants to do through you supernaturally by His Spirit, empowering you beyond your personal competence and capacities. Release the Holy Spirit’s work at the very core of your experience of the Christian life – as He releases you to serve God as never before.
This Book is a story of how the Holy Spirit works in the life of a committed Christian. Walking arm in arm with the Holy Spirit is a mystery to be sure, but it’s a wonderful mystery of how to experience more of God more of the time. In this semi-autobiographical novel, Paul Chambers seeks to experience more of God more of the time in his everyday life. He tries as hard as he can, through his own powers and spiritual passion, to stay near God on a consistent basis but keeps coming up short. It isn’t until he allows the Holy Spirit to teach and empower him through divine appointments, visions, revelations, and conversations with Christian friends that he is transformed from the man he wants to be into the man God wants him to be.
˃˃˃ What pastors are saying.“Arm In Arm with the Holy Spirit by Patrick Day is more than an engaging story; it is a theological narrative on the presence and leading of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer. Those who are looking for a better understanding of what it means to be led by the Holy Spirit and hearing the voice of God will learn, along with the book’s main character Paul Chambers, to grow in the pursuit of a Holy Spirit directed life.” Pastor Bill Hicks
“Reading this book will draw you closer to God as you experience, through the main character Paul Chambers, the role of the Holy Spirit in your life. Understanding your own part in this walk of faith is even more helpful. My eyes were moist as I read the final pages.” Pastor Bruce Schoeman
For anyone seeking to live at the center of God’s purposes, this well-loved book points the way to new spiritual vitality in the church and in your own life.
A classic must-read for readers looking for hope and transformation in the church today, Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire shows what the Holy Spirit can do when believers get serious about prayer and the gospel. As this compelling book reveals, God moves in life-changing ways – calling us back from spiritual dead ends, apathy, and lukewarm religion – when we set aside our own agendas, take him at his word, and listen for his voice.
Pastor Jim Cymbala knows from personal experience. Back in the early 1970s his own church, the Brooklyn Tabernacle, was a struggling congregation of twenty. Then they began to pray, God began to move, and street-hardened lives by the hundreds were changed with the love of Christ. Today, they are nearly ten thousand strong.
In this twentieth anniversary edition, Cymbala updates the classic stories, including that of his own daughter, Chrissy Cymbala Toledo. He talks about how the church has grown and how God helped the church move from its location on Flatbush Avenue to a larger facility that the growing church couldn’t “afford” as God continues to dramatically reshape the life stories of so many people who encounter Christ and the power of the gospel. This message of hope and transformation continues.
Goes through the Bible book by book to provide a complete look at what the Bible teaches about the Holy Spirit and His work. Includes subject and Scripture indexes.
Christians who want to take the next step in their faith walk need look no further. It’s time to ante up and go all in with God.
The Gospel costs nothing. You can’t earn it or buy it. It can only be received as a free gift, which is compliments of God’s grace. It doesn’t cost anything, but it demands everything. It demands that we go “all in,” putting all that we have into God’s hands.
But why do so many Christians hesitate to do that? And when did we start believing that the Gospel is an insurance plan? We’re afraid that if we go all in that we might miss out on what life has to offer. But Jesus did not die to keep us safe. He died to make us dangerous.
So, let’s step out of spiritual no man’s land and kneel at the foot of the cross of Christ and surrender to his lordship. It’s time to dethrone yourself and enthrone Christ as king, and Pastor Mark Batterson is here to show you how.
Using his customary vivid, contemporary illustrations, as well as biblical characters like Shamgar, Elisha, Jonathan, and even Judas, you will be challenged to trade what Batterson calls “inverted Christianity” for true discipleship as you strip away your excuses and inhibitions and follow God completely.
It’s now or never. Are you ready to go all in and all out for God?
