The Baptism in the Holy Spirit will make you a powerful prayer warrior giving you much more power than praying in English or whatever you mother tongue is. In Romans 8:26-27 it states that the Holy Spirit will help our infirmities. From Blue Letter Bible .com (infirmities is referring to the soul and our want of strength and capacity to understand a thing) the Holy Spirit helps us as we don’t know how to pray about everything. But the good news is that the Spirit makes intercession or prayer for us with groaning’s which cannot be expressed in our mother
tongue. (Through the Baptism of the Holy Spirit).
How true that statement is. We just don’t have the capacity to know how to pray for everything that comes our way but the Holy Spirit does and gives each of us a prayer language that the devil cannot understand because it is supernatural. That’s why he has fought it so much through the Body of Christ.
If it was for no other reason than this how wonderful it is to always have the assurance that as you pray in other tongues as the Spirit gives you the words you are praying exactly according to God’s perfect will. How good can it get?
Of course there was a powerful outpouring of this on the Day of Pentecost which was the inception of the New Testament Church and this gift for all believers. There have been other world revivals that have also manifested this gift among God’s people.
In the 1906 there was the Azusa Street Revival in Los Angeles, Calif. William Seymour and others started that revival and it last for approx. 3 years to 1909 nonstop. Once again there was an outpouring of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and creative healing miracles in people’s bodies internally and externally. This revival of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and miracles of God went worldwide.
In approximately 1960 the Charismatic Movement is said to have started at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Van Nuys, Calif. Dennis Bennett pastor of that church shared with his congregation how he had received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. That powerful move of God touched people in virtually every denomination, Baptists, Methodists. Lutherans, Presbyterians and Catholics just to name a few.
It lasted from approx. 1960 to the 1980’s.
But I want you to know that there is an end time worldwide revival that has already started in some countries that is going to make all other revivals on the face of the earth pale in comparison. The wonderful thing about this
revival is that it will not stop until the rapture of the Church. There will be an outpouring of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit that no one will ever be able to stop it. This revival will get more powerful as time goes on. There will be creative miracles, like the dead being raised and arms and legs and other body parts growing out right before the worlds eyes and other creative miracles. In this revival this will be a common thing. The reason for this is that the Lord wants to draw all people to Him through signs, wonders and miracles before the Rapture of the Church.
Please join me next Monday as we look at other powerful weapons that the Lord has given us.
