When The Spirit Moves (2)



Group Members Reading: Numbers 11:29; John 16:7; Acts 10:38; John 16:13; Romans 8:26; John 16:14-15; Ephesians 1:18-19; Deuteronomy 29:29.



Holy Spirit denotes action!


Genesis 1:1-2, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”


When the Holy Spirit moves upon the Believer there should be action involved! The prophet Joel wrote about the Holy Spirit 800 years before Pentecost. In fact, Moses spoke about the impartation of the Spirit of God in Numbers 11:29!


The Book of Joel focuses on two main New Testament topics that Jesus endorsed throughout His ministry - What were these two topics?


1. __________ -  Jesus preached “repent and believe the gospel”! “Repent” is used 6 times in the book of Revelation!

What is the danger of the church not preaching repentance?


2. _______ __ ___ ____ ______ - Jesus, in His last days, spoke about the baptism in the Holy Spirit nine times!

Why do you believe is the reason for churches avoiding this biblical topic?



Read Joel 2:28-32



Why do I need the Baptism in the Holy Spirit? (John 16:7)


1. The Holy Spirit Anoints with _____!

Why is this important to you the Believer?

He gives “Power” to live a Christian life - It’s supernatural!

He gives “Power” to grow into the likeness of Christ!

He gives “Power” to give authority over the enemy  - the hedge of protection! Authority over sickness,  over stressful situations, over finances,

All this power is determined by the depth of our relationship with God! (Acts 10:38)


2. The Holy Spirit ______ the Believer!

Why is this important to you the Believer?

God gives us the Holy Spirit to aid us in understanding His Word, which is like a road map that gives direction! (John 16:13)

We need direction every day - Daily walk!

The Holy Spirit knows your needs and He intercedes for you! (Romans 8:26)


3. The Holy Spirit Administers God’s ______!

Why is this important to you the Believer?

We have the legal rights to God’s divine riches through the Holy Spirit! (John 16:14-15)God holds everything that we will ever need, but we must cultivate an intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit to receive these blessings!

The church needs the Holy Spirit, He is irreplaceable, without Him we would be lifeless and powerless! (Ephesians 1:18-19)



4. The Holy Spirit Reveals ______ _______!

Why is this important to you the Believer?

The Word of God has hidden secrets that only the Holy Spirit can reveal! It is only for those  who seek them that find them! (Deuteronomy 29:29)

The gifts of the Holy Spirit are to aid the church in understanding God’s Divine Direction!

The prophetic word for today is to be ready, for the Lord is about to return! We are seeing Matthew 24 play out before our eyes!



Close: Andrew Murray, “Men ought to seek with their whole hearts to be filled with the Spirit of God. Without being filled with the Spirit, it is utterly impossible that an individual Christian or a church can ever live or work as God desires.”
