The Book of Acts

The Acts of the Holy Spirit

The church is birthed, empowered and commissioned through the Holy Spirit in the book of Acts.

While Jesus tells over 500 of His followers to go and wait for the Holy Spirit (after His death but before His ascension), only 120 had a desire to seek more!

Why is it that the Holy Spirit seems to be the most neglected of the Holy Trinity?

Maybe it is because man cannot control the Holy Spirit?

Sometimes the supernatural makes people uncomfortable....

But, God is a Spirit.

We must be willing to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.

And, the Truth is that the Holy Spirit works miracles!

The Spirit of God sets the captives free.

The Holy Spirit speaks through utterances that cannot be spoken by words.

The Holy Spirit heals.

The Holy Spirit teaches.

The Holy Spirit empowers men with Spiritual Gifts!

The Holy Spirit of God is in YOU if you believe.

Read the book of Acts and be set on FIRE for Kingdom work.

Royal Law

Bookmark and Share

James 2:8 (NIV)
"If you really keep the ROYAL LAW found in Scripture, "Love your neighbor as yourself," you are doing right."


What does it really mean to love your neighbor as yourself?

And... who is your neighbor, anyway?
Friend, your neighbor is people!
The Royal Law simply means to treat other people as you would want to be treated.
God loves people.
When we treat others with kindness, love, humility, generosity, healing, encouragement, respect, honor and dignity... we honor God!
Jesus said in Luke 6:26 - "Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also. Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise." (KJV)
