  • Whatever religious upbringingyou have, if it ever, if it made
  • 00:00:07.256 --> 00:00:12.628
  • you afraid of the Bible,something's wrong with it.
  • 00:00:12.728 --> 00:00:15.297
  • ♪ ♪
  • 00:00:15.397 --> 00:00:28.911
  • PASTOR ROBERT: Alright.
  • 00:00:30.312 --> 00:00:31.013
  • I want you toturn to Acts 2.
  • 00:00:31.113 --> 00:00:33.048
  • We're in a series called"The God I Never Knew",
  • 00:00:33.148 --> 00:00:36.418
  • talking about the Holy Spirit,because when I grew up,
  • 00:00:36.518 --> 00:00:38.987
  • I didn't hear much about theHoly Spirit; and what I did hear
  • 00:00:39.088 --> 00:00:42.191
  • about theHoly Spirit was bad.
  • 00:00:42.291 --> 00:00:44.927
  • And so, I was a littlebit afraid of Him.
  • 00:00:45.027 --> 00:00:46.995
  • And so, we've been answeringquestions every week.
  • 00:00:47.096 --> 00:00:49.565
  • This is the thirdweek of the series.
  • 00:00:49.665 --> 00:00:51.333
  • The first weekwas, "Who Is He?"
  • 00:00:51.433 --> 00:00:53.836
  • Who is this guy?
  • 00:00:53.936 --> 00:00:55.237
  • Second week, last week, was,"Is He A Person,"
  • 00:00:55.337 --> 00:00:57.639
  • because some people don'tbelieve He's a person.
  • 00:00:57.739 --> 00:00:59.942
  • Is He a person?
  • 00:01:00.042 --> 00:01:01.210
  • This week, I think I gota great title for you.
  • 00:01:01.310 --> 00:01:04.113
  • Here's the title thisweek, "Is He Pentecostal".
  • 00:01:04.213 --> 00:01:10.285
  • Isn't that a good title?
  • 00:01:10.385 --> 00:01:11.854
  • I mean, because, you know, I'veheard some things about Him
  • 00:01:11.954 --> 00:01:15.657
  • and, "So Pastor, you're tryingto tell us about this guy,
  • 00:01:15.757 --> 00:01:18.427
  • so just lay it on theline -- is He Pentecostal,"
  • 00:01:18.527 --> 00:01:22.397
  • 'cause we know thatJohn was a Baptist.
  • 00:01:22.498 --> 00:01:24.700
  • You know?
  • 00:01:24.800 --> 00:01:27.603
  • This is what the Biblesays, straight out.
  • 00:01:27.703 --> 00:01:29.271
  • John the Baptist.
  • 00:01:29.371 --> 00:01:30.405
  • You know?
  • 00:01:30.506 --> 00:01:31.673
  • So -- okay, so is He -- andthen, we get asked this all
  • 00:01:31.773 --> 00:01:33.542
  • the time, too, you know,are we Pentecostal?
  • 00:01:33.642 --> 00:01:35.644
  • Are we, you know, well --Just to let you know,
  • 00:01:35.744 --> 00:01:38.514
  • we're kind of Bapti-costal,if that's alright.
  • 00:01:38.614 --> 00:01:44.386
  • Alright?
  • 00:01:44.486 --> 00:01:45.621
  • I went to a Baptist school, EastTexas Baptist University,
  • 00:01:45.721 --> 00:01:47.756
  • Bible College, and thankful formy foundation;
  • 00:01:47.856 --> 00:01:51.994
  • but we believe fully in theperson and the work
  • 00:01:52.094 --> 00:01:54.663
  • of the Holy Spirit, as do manyBaptist churches.
  • 00:01:54.763 --> 00:01:57.633
  • But we're not a part ofthe Baptist denomination.
  • 00:01:57.733 --> 00:02:00.235
  • We're not a part of thePentecostal denomination.
  • 00:02:00.335 --> 00:02:02.838
  • We're anon-denominational church.
  • 00:02:02.938 --> 00:02:04.139
  • That doesn'tmake us special.
  • 00:02:04.239 --> 00:02:06.008
  • There are a lot ofdenominational churches
  • 00:02:06.108 --> 00:02:07.709
  • that are great churches, too.
  • 00:02:07.809 --> 00:02:08.977
  • So we're not unique in thatsense of being special
  • 00:02:09.077 --> 00:02:13.882
  • or better than at all.
  • 00:02:13.982 --> 00:02:15.150
  • I don't want youto ever think that.
  • 00:02:15.250 --> 00:02:16.785
  • But let me put it this way.
  • 00:02:16.885 --> 00:02:18.287
  • We believe in water baptism,but we're not part
  • 00:02:18.387 --> 00:02:23.425
  • of the Baptist denomination.
  • 00:02:23.525 --> 00:02:25.727
  • We also believe in spiritbaptism, but we're not part
  • 00:02:25.827 --> 00:02:29.464
  • of the Pentecostaldenomination.
  • 00:02:29.565 --> 00:02:31.533
  • You understandwhat I'm saying?
  • 00:02:31.633 --> 00:02:32.935
  • So when we say "is the HolySpirit Pentecostal", well,
  • 00:02:33.035 --> 00:02:35.304
  • if by Pentecostal you meanthat ladies can't wear pants
  • 00:02:35.404 --> 00:02:42.044
  • and they can't wear makeup,and by the way, I love makeup,
  • 00:02:42.144 --> 00:02:46.782
  • for ladies, for ladies --let me clarify that.
  • 00:02:46.882 --> 00:02:51.453
  • Nothing going on around thehouse that you don't know about.
  • 00:02:51.553 --> 00:02:53.722
  • Alright?Okay.
  • 00:02:53.822 --> 00:02:54.623
  • So, okay.
  • 00:02:54.723 --> 00:02:55.557
  • So, for ladies, okay?Alright.
  • 00:02:55.657 --> 00:02:58.894
  • So, but that's not what I'mtalking about,
  • 00:02:58.994 --> 00:03:02.965
  • and I'm not putting down peoplewho have that belief.
  • 00:03:03.065 --> 00:03:05.467
  • Please don't ever put downsomeone who's sincere
  • 00:03:05.567 --> 00:03:07.569
  • in his or her belief, alright?
  • 00:03:07.669 --> 00:03:08.837
  • Don't do that.
  • 00:03:08.937 --> 00:03:10.806
  • But if, by Pentecostal, wemean the biblical definition
  • 00:03:10.906 --> 00:03:14.109
  • of the word Pentecost, and thatwe believe fully in the person
  • 00:03:14.209 --> 00:03:19.047
  • and the work of the Holy Spirit,and we believe that Pentecost
  • 00:03:19.147 --> 00:03:22.050
  • is the fulfillment of the Feastof Pentecost and we believe
  • 00:03:22.150 --> 00:03:26.088
  • that every believer needs avital relationship with
  • 00:03:26.188 --> 00:03:28.624
  • the Holy Spirit, then yes.
  • 00:03:28.724 --> 00:03:31.960
  • Then yes, the HolySpirit is Pentecostal.
  • 00:03:32.060 --> 00:03:34.730
  • But not according to somehistorical or cultural
  • 00:03:34.830 --> 00:03:39.334
  • or maybe even denominationaldefinitions.
  • 00:03:39.434 --> 00:03:41.637
  • So to answer this question,we need to answer
  • 00:03:41.737 --> 00:03:44.806
  • some other questions.Alright?
  • 00:03:44.906 --> 00:03:46.241
  • So here's the first one.
  • 00:03:46.341 --> 00:03:47.609
  • What is Pentecost?
  • 00:03:47.709 --> 00:03:50.579
  • See, a lot of people don'teven know what Pentecost is.
  • 00:03:50.679 --> 00:03:54.216
  • So Acts 2, lookat verse one.
  • 00:03:54.316 --> 00:03:56.852
  • It says, "When the day ofPentecost had fully come",
  • 00:03:56.952 --> 00:04:01.923
  • And I'll explain to youwhat it means, fully come.
  • 00:04:02.024 --> 00:04:05.193
  • "When the day of Pentecostarrived, they were all with one
  • 00:04:05.294 --> 00:04:09.264
  • accord in one place.
  • 00:04:09.364 --> 00:04:11.433
  • And suddenly there came asound from heaven as of a mighty
  • 00:04:11.533 --> 00:04:15.203
  • rushing wind, and itfilled the whole house where
  • 00:04:15.304 --> 00:04:19.308
  • they were sitting."
  • 00:04:19.408 --> 00:04:20.575
  • Okay, so let me give you alittle bit of explanation
  • 00:04:20.676 --> 00:04:22.878
  • about Pentecost.
  • 00:04:22.978 --> 00:04:24.179
  • There were three majorfeasts in Israel,
  • 00:04:24.279 --> 00:04:27.082
  • in the first month, the thirdmonth, and the seventh month
  • 00:04:27.182 --> 00:04:29.551
  • of their calendar.
  • 00:04:29.651 --> 00:04:30.952
  • And all of Israel was togather in Jerusalem,
  • 00:04:31.053 --> 00:04:33.488
  • and sometimes they gathered atother cities,
  • 00:04:33.588 --> 00:04:35.390
  • but it was to be Jerusalem, andto celebrate these feasts.
  • 00:04:35.490 --> 00:04:38.627
  • And they allrepresented something.
  • 00:04:38.727 --> 00:04:40.262
  • Okay?
  • 00:04:40.362 --> 00:04:41.430
  • Passover represented whenthe spirit of death passed
  • 00:04:41.530 --> 00:04:44.800
  • over the children of Israelwhen they were in Egypt.
  • 00:04:44.900 --> 00:04:48.136
  • Passover was the first majorfeast, Pentecost,
  • 00:04:48.236 --> 00:04:51.340
  • and then Tabernacles.Alright?
  • 00:04:51.440 --> 00:04:53.575
  • Now, within those, youprobably heard the seven
  • 00:04:53.675 --> 00:04:56.578
  • feasts of Israel.
  • 00:04:56.678 --> 00:04:58.046
  • Within Passover, thereare three feasts.
  • 00:04:58.146 --> 00:05:00.282
  • Within Tabernacles,there are three feasts.
  • 00:05:00.382 --> 00:05:02.384
  • And then, you have the Feastof Pentecost,
  • 00:05:02.484 --> 00:05:03.985
  • so that's where you get theseventh.
  • 00:05:04.086 --> 00:05:05.487
  • Within Passover, you havethe Feast of Unleavened Bread
  • 00:05:05.587 --> 00:05:08.990
  • and also theFeast of Firstfruits.
  • 00:05:09.091 --> 00:05:10.992
  • Then you have Pentecost 50days after Passover,
  • 00:05:11.093 --> 00:05:14.830
  • and then you have Tabernacleswhich includes the
  • 00:05:14.930 --> 00:05:16.932
  • Feast of Trumpets and the Feastof the Day of Atonement,
  • 00:05:17.032 --> 00:05:20.102
  • and then Feast of Tabernacles orBooths as it's called sometimes.
  • 00:05:20.202 --> 00:05:23.572
  • And I can explain that, butI don't have time
  • 00:05:23.672 --> 00:05:25.607
  • to go into all that.
  • 00:05:25.707 --> 00:05:26.875
  • Alright, so what is this feastthat they're celebrating?
  • 00:05:26.975 --> 00:05:30.312
  • Pentecost, you need to know,was the celebrating
  • 00:05:30.412 --> 00:05:34.082
  • of the giving of the law
  • 00:05:34.182 --> 00:05:36.218
  • on Mount Sinai.
  • 00:05:36.318 --> 00:05:37.285
  • It happened 50 daysafter Passover.
  • 00:05:37.386 --> 00:05:40.389
  • But let me tell you whatthe word Pentecost means.
  • 00:05:40.489 --> 00:05:42.657
  • Okay, you can probablyfigure it out in a little bit.
  • 00:05:42.758 --> 00:05:44.760
  • Penta means five.
  • 00:05:44.860 --> 00:05:46.928
  • It's from the Greekword, means five.
  • 00:05:47.028 --> 00:05:48.363
  • 'Kay?
  • 00:05:48.463 --> 00:05:49.431
  • Like a pentagon, thePentagon is five-sided.
  • 00:05:49.531 --> 00:05:52.401
  • Gon is a side.
  • 00:05:52.501 --> 00:05:53.935
  • Five-sided, it's afive-sided building.
  • 00:05:54.035 --> 00:05:56.104
  • Okay?Penta.
  • 00:05:56.204 --> 00:05:57.572
  • Cost means tothe tenth power.
  • 00:05:57.672 --> 00:06:02.144
  • So Pentecost means 50th.
  • 00:06:02.244 --> 00:06:06.481
  • And then it says, "When theday of Pentecost had fully come"
  • 00:06:06.581 --> 00:06:09.651
  • This is, what it means iswhen the 50th day arrived.
  • 00:06:09.751 --> 00:06:14.055
  • That's what it means.
  • 00:06:14.156 --> 00:06:14.956
  • Okay.
  • 00:06:15.056 --> 00:06:15.857
  • So the wordPentecost means 50th.
  • 00:06:15.957 --> 00:06:19.060
  • But I want you tothink about this.
  • 00:06:19.161 --> 00:06:20.996
  • How many of us have anegative connotation
  • 00:06:21.096 --> 00:06:23.198
  • of the word Pentecost?
  • 00:06:23.298 --> 00:06:27.569
  • And you know what it means?Fifty.
  • 00:06:27.669 --> 00:06:30.539
  • Okay listen to me.Fifty.
  • 00:06:30.639 --> 00:06:36.311
  • Isn't it scary?
  • 00:06:36.411 --> 00:06:37.446
  • It's a scary word, isn't it?Fifty.
  • 00:06:37.546 --> 00:06:39.681
  • Well, actually, it is ifyou're talking about a birthday.
  • 00:06:39.781 --> 00:06:42.217
  • But anyway, itmight be scary then.
  • 00:06:42.317 --> 00:06:46.488
  • Why would you ever be scaredof the word Pentecost,
  • 00:06:46.588 --> 00:06:50.959
  • and a word that's in the Bible?
  • 00:06:51.059 --> 00:06:53.261
  • Now, it was 50 daysafter Passover.
  • 00:06:53.361 --> 00:06:58.400
  • But God knew that His Son wasgoing to resurrect on the day
  • 00:06:58.500 --> 00:07:03.371
  • after the Sabbath, and thatJesus would be on the earth
  • 00:07:03.472 --> 00:07:07.542
  • 40 days -- 40 is an importantnumber in the Bible,
  • 00:07:07.642 --> 00:07:09.878
  • and that theywould be praying ten days.
  • 00:07:09.978 --> 00:07:11.513
  • That's 50.
  • 00:07:11.613 --> 00:07:12.614
  • So I want to show yousomething that, because
  • 00:07:12.714 --> 00:07:14.282
  • if you're like me and numbersadd up in your mind, you think,
  • 00:07:14.382 --> 00:07:17.118
  • "Well, the Holy Spirit didn'tcome 50 days after Passover,
  • 00:07:17.219 --> 00:07:20.956
  • 'cause Jesus died on Passover."
  • 00:07:21.056 --> 00:07:22.991
  • The Holy Spirit came 50 daysafter the resurrection
  • 00:07:23.091 --> 00:07:26.061
  • and He raised on the firstday of the week, Sunday.
  • 00:07:26.161 --> 00:07:28.563
  • It was the dayafter Sabbath.
  • 00:07:28.663 --> 00:07:29.865
  • I want to show you somethingthat God did in the law.
  • 00:07:29.965 --> 00:07:32.267
  • Alright?
  • 00:07:32.367 --> 00:07:33.335
  • Because Passover couldhave fallen on a Monday,
  • 00:07:33.435 --> 00:07:35.370
  • a Tuesday, a Wednesday,Thursday, whenever.
  • 00:07:35.470 --> 00:07:37.806
  • So Leviticus 23:15-16 says,"And you shall count for
  • 00:07:37.906 --> 00:07:42.377
  • yourselves from the day afterthe Sabbath, from the day that
  • 00:07:42.477 --> 00:07:47.649
  • you brought the, sheaf of thewave offering: seven Sabbaths"
  • 00:07:47.749 --> 00:07:51.920
  • Seven Sabbaths;that'd be seven weeks.
  • 00:07:52.020 --> 00:07:54.523
  • Sabbath is one day a week.
  • 00:07:54.623 --> 00:07:56.091
  • "Shall be completed."
  • 00:07:56.191 --> 00:07:57.325
  • Now, watch verse 16, "Countfifty days to the day after
  • 00:07:57.425 --> 00:08:02.430
  • the seventh Sabbath; thenyou shall offer a new grain
  • 00:08:02.531 --> 00:08:05.400
  • offering to the Lord."
  • 00:08:05.500 --> 00:08:06.334
  • Okay, here's just --I love the Bible.
  • 00:08:06.434 --> 00:08:09.104
  • I just love the Bible.
  • 00:08:09.204 --> 00:08:10.972
  • Think about this.
  • 00:08:11.072 --> 00:08:11.973
  • They were celebratingPentecost.
  • 00:08:12.073 --> 00:08:13.808
  • The giving of the law came50 days after Passover.
  • 00:08:13.909 --> 00:08:16.711
  • But God knew that His Sonwould die on Passover
  • 00:08:16.811 --> 00:08:19.014
  • but would resurrect on theday after the Sabbath.
  • 00:08:19.114 --> 00:08:21.516
  • So, in Leviticus, Hesays, "I want you to start
  • 00:08:21.616 --> 00:08:23.518
  • celebrating this feast.
  • 00:08:23.618 --> 00:08:24.953
  • Don't start counting untilthe day after the Sabbath."
  • 00:08:25.053 --> 00:08:27.389
  • It doesn't matter whetherPassover is on Tuesday
  • 00:08:27.489 --> 00:08:29.291
  • or Friday or what.
  • 00:08:29.391 --> 00:08:30.559
  • On the day after theSabbath, that's when you count
  • 00:08:30.659 --> 00:08:32.661
  • the 50 days, because God knewJesus would be here 40 days.
  • 00:08:32.761 --> 00:08:36.565
  • The disciplesprayed ten days.
  • 00:08:36.665 --> 00:08:38.300
  • And so, He wanted the HolySpirit to come
  • 00:08:38.400 --> 00:08:40.535
  • on the exact 50th day.
  • 00:08:40.635 --> 00:08:42.837
  • Now, I just think that'scool that God likes math,
  • 00:08:42.938 --> 00:08:46.908
  • too, like I like math.
  • 00:08:47.008 --> 00:08:48.209
  • Alright, so itall works out.
  • 00:08:48.310 --> 00:08:50.478
  • So what is Pentecost?
  • 00:08:50.579 --> 00:08:52.047
  • Alright, you ready again?
  • 00:08:52.147 --> 00:08:53.081
  • Don't be scaredwhen I say it.
  • 00:08:53.181 --> 00:08:54.583
  • Fifty.
  • 00:08:54.683 --> 00:08:57.285
  • That's all theword means is 50.
  • 00:08:57.385 --> 00:09:00.589
  • Fiftieth.Okay?
  • 00:09:00.689 --> 00:09:01.856
  • So here's thesecond question.
  • 00:09:01.957 --> 00:09:03.458
  • What happened at Pentecost?
  • 00:09:03.558 --> 00:09:06.595
  • What happened at Pentecost?
  • 00:09:06.695 --> 00:09:07.896
  • Alright, we stop there andwe'll come back and read
  • 00:09:07.996 --> 00:09:10.131
  • verse three and fourin a minute in Acts 2.
  • 00:09:10.231 --> 00:09:12.233
  • But look at versesfive and six.
  • 00:09:12.334 --> 00:09:14.269
  • "And there were dwelling inJerusalem Jews, devout men,
  • 00:09:14.369 --> 00:09:18.039
  • from every nation underheaven," from every nation,
  • 00:09:18.139 --> 00:09:22.577
  • every nation under heaven.
  • 00:09:22.677 --> 00:09:25.413
  • "And when this sound occurred,"this mighty rushing wind,
  • 00:09:25.513 --> 00:09:29.217
  • "the multitude came together,and were confused".
  • 00:09:29.317 --> 00:09:34.623
  • I want you to remember theword confused 'cause we're
  • 00:09:34.723 --> 00:09:36.691
  • going to come back to that.
  • 00:09:36.791 --> 00:09:38.026
  • "Because everyone heardthem speak in his own language
  • 00:09:38.126 --> 00:09:43.198
  • 'Kay, so there arepeople from every nation.
  • 00:09:43.298 --> 00:09:46.434
  • They're confused and they hearthis, their own language.
  • 00:09:46.534 --> 00:09:53.008
  • They understand this.
  • 00:09:53.108 --> 00:09:56.111
  • Think about this.
  • 00:09:56.211 --> 00:09:57.679
  • Back in Genesis 11 is thestory of the tower of Babel.
  • 00:09:57.779 --> 00:10:02.951
  • You remember that?
  • 00:10:03.051 --> 00:10:04.586
  • They all spoke one language.
  • 00:10:04.686 --> 00:10:07.288
  • But they weregathered in rebellion.
  • 00:10:07.389 --> 00:10:10.892
  • On the day of Pentecost, theywere gathered in submission.
  • 00:10:10.992 --> 00:10:15.430
  • At the tower of Babel, theywere gathered in pride.
  • 00:10:15.530 --> 00:10:18.633
  • Pentecost, they weregathered in humility.
  • 00:10:18.733 --> 00:10:22.037
  • On the day, on the towerof Babel,
  • 00:10:22.137 --> 00:10:24.506
  • they all had one language Godcame down and confused.
  • 00:10:24.606 --> 00:10:29.444
  • That's what it says.
  • 00:10:29.544 --> 00:10:30.712
  • Confused their language and theyscattered to every nation.
  • 00:10:30.812 --> 00:10:33.448
  • On the day of Pentecost,they all came back together
  • 00:10:33.548 --> 00:10:35.884
  • and God restored a purelanguage to 'em and they heard
  • 00:10:35.984 --> 00:10:44.125
  • the wonderfulwords of God.
  • 00:10:44.225 --> 00:10:45.627
  • Pentecost is the blessedreversal of the cursed
  • 00:10:45.727 --> 00:10:51.299
  • judgment of Babel.
  • 00:10:51.399 --> 00:10:56.438
  • Every nation, every tribe,every tongue -- if you want
  • 00:10:56.538 --> 00:11:00.909
  • to know, by the way, thisis what Heaven's
  • 00:11:01.009 --> 00:11:02.744
  • going to be like.
  • 00:11:02.844 --> 00:11:03.845
  • Every nation, the Greekword nation is ethnos.
  • 00:11:03.945 --> 00:11:06.581
  • Every ethnic group praisingGod, that's what Heaven's
  • 00:11:06.681 --> 00:11:10.618
  • going to look like.
  • 00:11:10.719 --> 00:11:12.087
  • And it started at Pentecost.
  • 00:11:12.187 --> 00:11:14.789
  • 'Kay, so, when the law wasgiven, there was a loud noise.
  • 00:11:14.889 --> 00:11:20.895
  • The cloud descended.
  • 00:11:20.995 --> 00:11:24.632
  • There was fire.
  • 00:11:24.733 --> 00:11:27.368
  • God wrote His lawon tablets of stone.
  • 00:11:27.469 --> 00:11:31.239
  • And on that day when the law wasgiven, 3.000 people died.
  • 00:11:31.339 --> 00:11:38.646
  • On the day of Pentecost,there was a loud noise.
  • 00:11:38.747 --> 00:11:42.717
  • Whole multitude heard it.
  • 00:11:42.817 --> 00:11:44.652
  • There was fire.
  • 00:11:44.753 --> 00:11:45.787
  • We're going to read aboutit in a minute, the fire.
  • 00:11:45.887 --> 00:11:47.188
  • There was fire.
  • 00:11:47.288 --> 00:11:50.558
  • God rode, thecloud descended.
  • 00:11:50.658 --> 00:11:53.661
  • They were led by fire by day,they were led
  • 00:11:53.762 --> 00:11:55.764
  • by the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:11:55.864 --> 00:11:57.599
  • The Spirit descended.
  • 00:11:57.699 --> 00:11:59.467
  • God wrote His lawon men's hearts
  • 00:11:59.567 --> 00:12:04.572
  • and 3.000 people were saved.
  • 00:12:04.672 --> 00:12:09.711
  • If you haven't figured itout yet, this is a good book.
  • 00:12:09.811 --> 00:12:13.948
  • This is a great book.
  • 00:12:14.048 --> 00:12:16.284
  • And it's just amazing howit all comes together like this.
  • 00:12:16.384 --> 00:12:19.788
  • So the day of Pentecost isthe fulfillment of that.
  • 00:12:19.888 --> 00:12:22.457
  • Listen.
  • 00:12:22.557 --> 00:12:23.558
  • When God gave the law,they couldn't keep it.
  • 00:12:23.658 --> 00:12:28.963
  • Maybe you haven'tread the book,
  • 00:12:29.063 --> 00:12:30.465
  • but maybe you've seen the movie.
  • 00:12:30.565 --> 00:12:33.735
  • Moses is up on the mountaingetting the law and one
  • 00:12:33.835 --> 00:12:36.538
  • of the laws is "Thou shalt notcommit adultery,"
  • 00:12:36.638 --> 00:12:38.873
  • and you know what they're doingat the bottom of the mountain?
  • 00:12:38.973 --> 00:12:41.409
  • Committing adultery.
  • 00:12:41.509 --> 00:12:43.978
  • Before, pardon the expression,but before the ink is even dry
  • 00:12:44.078 --> 00:12:48.817
  • they'd broken the law.
  • 00:12:48.917 --> 00:12:52.654
  • But when the Holy Spiritcomes, He writes God's
  • 00:12:52.754 --> 00:12:56.724
  • righteous standardon your heart.
  • 00:12:56.825 --> 00:13:00.829
  • Let me put it another way.
  • 00:13:00.929 --> 00:13:02.330
  • Jesus came to make us inright standing with God
  • 00:13:02.430 --> 00:13:05.433
  • because we could never bein right standing with God.
  • 00:13:05.533 --> 00:13:07.635
  • Holy Spirit comes so thatwe can live righteously.
  • 00:13:07.735 --> 00:13:12.507
  • He comes to empower us.
  • 00:13:12.607 --> 00:13:14.042
  • If you think you could livein this fallen, sin-filled,
  • 00:13:14.142 --> 00:13:17.512
  • demonic world without thepower of the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:13:17.612 --> 00:13:20.448
  • you're in for arude awakening.
  • 00:13:20.548 --> 00:13:22.584
  • You need the powerof the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:13:22.684 --> 00:13:26.187
  • So here's thethird question.
  • 00:13:26.287 --> 00:13:28.556
  • Can I experience Pentecost?
  • 00:13:28.656 --> 00:13:32.961
  • Can I, can you, can I, can wetoday experience Pentecost?
  • 00:13:33.061 --> 00:13:38.066
  • Because see, we'reliving today.
  • 00:13:38.166 --> 00:13:39.601
  • The Holy Spirit came2.000 years ago.
  • 00:13:39.701 --> 00:13:41.769
  • So can we experience it?Alright?
  • 00:13:41.870 --> 00:13:43.705
  • Well, back in Acts 2,look at verse three.
  • 00:13:43.805 --> 00:13:47.342
  • It says, "Then there appeared tothem divided tongues"
  • 00:13:47.442 --> 00:13:50.645
  • Now, leave that up for justa moment,
  • 00:13:50.745 --> 00:13:52.280
  • just so you can see this.
  • 00:13:52.380 --> 00:13:53.748
  • See the word divide there?
  • 00:13:53.848 --> 00:13:57.151
  • Look at di-vid, di-vid.
  • 00:13:57.252 --> 00:13:59.287
  • Alright, look at thosetwo syllables, di-vid.
  • 00:13:59.387 --> 00:14:00.855
  • Okay?Di-vid.
  • 00:14:00.955 --> 00:14:03.791
  • Think about anotherword, in-di-vid-ual.
  • 00:14:03.892 --> 00:14:08.129
  • In-di-vid-ual.Okay.
  • 00:14:08.229 --> 00:14:10.265
  • So when we think of divide,we think of something bad.
  • 00:14:10.365 --> 00:14:13.334
  • This just means, divided tonguesmeans individual tongues.
  • 00:14:13.434 --> 00:14:17.272
  • Everybody got one.
  • 00:14:17.372 --> 00:14:18.606
  • That's what it means.Okay?
  • 00:14:18.706 --> 00:14:19.841
  • So, "there appeared to themindividual tongues,
  • 00:14:19.941 --> 00:14:24.479
  • as of fire, and one satupon each of them."
  • 00:14:24.579 --> 00:14:30.618
  • Notice, each of 'em.
  • 00:14:30.718 --> 00:14:31.819
  • Everybody.'Kay?
  • 00:14:31.920 --> 00:14:33.955
  • "And they were all filledwith the Holy Spirit and began
  • 00:14:34.055 --> 00:14:38.326
  • to speak with other tongues, asthe Spirit gave them utterance."
  • 00:14:38.426 --> 00:14:42.130
  • Now, let me go back again,because tongues is a scary word
  • 00:14:42.230 --> 00:14:46.000
  • to many people.
  • 00:14:46.100 --> 00:14:47.535
  • Tongues comes from theGreek word glosses.
  • 00:14:47.635 --> 00:14:51.172
  • Glosses.
  • 00:14:51.272 --> 00:14:52.307
  • Can you think of any wordwe might get from that?
  • 00:14:52.407 --> 00:14:54.175
  • Glossary.Just means language.
  • 00:14:54.275 --> 00:14:58.079
  • And they began to speak withother languages,
  • 00:14:58.179 --> 00:15:01.015
  • as the Holy Spirit gave themutterance.
  • 00:15:01.115 --> 00:15:02.850
  • Alright, listen again.
  • 00:15:02.951 --> 00:15:04.552
  • You don't have to be afraidwhen someone says tongues.
  • 00:15:04.652 --> 00:15:08.423
  • You don't have to be afraid ofthat 'cause it means language.
  • 00:15:08.523 --> 00:15:11.759
  • And all these people heardthe wonderful works
  • 00:15:11.859 --> 00:15:13.962
  • of God in their own language.
  • 00:15:14.062 --> 00:15:16.731
  • You see what I'm saying?
  • 00:15:16.831 --> 00:15:17.832
  • Don't ever be afraidof reading the Bible.
  • 00:15:17.932 --> 00:15:22.136
  • Whatever religiousupbringing you have, if it ever,
  • 00:15:22.236 --> 00:15:27.308
  • if it made you afraidof the Bible, something's
  • 00:15:27.408 --> 00:15:29.644
  • wrong with it.
  • 00:15:29.744 --> 00:15:32.180
  • You should never beafraid to read the Bible.
  • 00:15:32.280 --> 00:15:34.449
  • So these tongues came andthere was a tongue of fire
  • 00:15:34.549 --> 00:15:37.218
  • on everyone's head.
  • 00:15:37.318 --> 00:15:39.854
  • 'Kay, so it's ontop of your head.
  • 00:15:39.954 --> 00:15:41.456
  • Let me say it this way.
  • 00:15:41.556 --> 00:15:42.657
  • If it happened today, youcould see a tongue of fire
  • 00:15:42.757 --> 00:15:45.793
  • on top of my head, and I'dbe able to see a tongue
  • 00:15:45.893 --> 00:15:49.163
  • of fire on top of your head.
  • 00:15:49.263 --> 00:15:51.099
  • Now, my personal opinion isthat you couldn't see your
  • 00:15:51.199 --> 00:15:53.868
  • own tongue of fire, 'causeit'd be up here,
  • 00:15:53.968 --> 00:15:56.404
  • and every time you'd look, youknow, it'd be like that.
  • 00:15:56.504 --> 00:16:03.444
  • Now, here's the reasonI'm telling you this.
  • 00:16:03.544 --> 00:16:05.680
  • It's because you have tobelieve by faith
  • 00:16:05.780 --> 00:16:10.718
  • there was a tongue of fireon your head too.
  • 00:16:10.818 --> 00:16:14.255
  • Do you know howyou receive Jesus?
  • 00:16:14.355 --> 00:16:17.158
  • You have toreceive by faith.
  • 00:16:17.258 --> 00:16:18.760
  • Is that right?
  • 00:16:18.860 --> 00:16:19.994
  • You know how youreceive the Holy Spirit?
  • 00:16:20.094 --> 00:16:22.964
  • By faith.
  • 00:16:23.064 --> 00:16:24.332
  • You've got to remember,there were 120 people
  • 00:16:24.432 --> 00:16:26.200
  • in the Upper Room.
  • 00:16:26.300 --> 00:16:27.502
  • So this baptism in the HolySpirit wasn't just for the 12,
  • 00:16:27.602 --> 00:16:32.273
  • wasn't just for thepeople on the platform.
  • 00:16:32.373 --> 00:16:34.709
  • It was for everyone.
  • 00:16:34.809 --> 00:16:36.577
  • Everyone got atongue of fire.
  • 00:16:36.677 --> 00:16:38.613
  • But you have to believe it.
  • 00:16:38.713 --> 00:16:39.781
  • You say, "Yeah, well, I knowPastor Robert's got one
  • 00:16:39.881 --> 00:16:42.850
  • and I can see so-and-so's gotone and so-and-so's got one.
  • 00:16:42.950 --> 00:16:46.754
  • I don't know whetherI have one or not."
  • 00:16:46.854 --> 00:16:49.891
  • No, everyone got it.
  • 00:16:49.991 --> 00:16:52.160
  • Are y'all following me?
  • 00:16:52.260 --> 00:16:53.027
  • It's very important.Alright?
  • 00:16:53.127 --> 00:16:54.462
  • So the question is can I.
  • 00:16:54.562 --> 00:16:58.266
  • Can I experience this?
  • 00:16:58.366 --> 00:16:59.634
  • Okay, look at Acts 1;just maybe back one page.
  • 00:16:59.734 --> 00:17:03.838
  • Look at verse four.
  • 00:17:03.938 --> 00:17:05.506
  • This is right beforeJesus ascends.
  • 00:17:05.606 --> 00:17:07.975
  • "And being assembled togetherwith them, He commanded them
  • 00:17:08.076 --> 00:17:11.312
  • not to depart from Jerusalem butto wait for the promise
  • 00:17:11.412 --> 00:17:17.685
  • of the Father."
  • 00:17:17.785 --> 00:17:18.753
  • Do you see the word promise?
  • 00:17:18.853 --> 00:17:20.488
  • Okay, everyone seethe word promise?
  • 00:17:20.588 --> 00:17:22.056
  • It's very important.
  • 00:17:22.156 --> 00:17:23.224
  • "Wait for the promise ofthe Father, which, He said,
  • 00:17:23.324 --> 00:17:26.461
  • you have heard from Me; forJohn truly baptized with water,
  • 00:17:26.561 --> 00:17:29.530
  • but you shall bebaptized with the Holy Spirit
  • 00:17:29.630 --> 00:17:32.934
  • not many days from now."
  • 00:17:33.034 --> 00:17:34.068
  • Okay, so Jesus says, "Waitfor the promise",
  • 00:17:34.168 --> 00:17:36.938
  • and then He tells them whatthe promise is.
  • 00:17:37.038 --> 00:17:38.773
  • It's the baptismin the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:17:38.873 --> 00:17:40.775
  • Does everyone see that?
  • 00:17:40.875 --> 00:17:41.676
  • It's simple.
  • 00:17:41.776 --> 00:17:42.677
  • I mean it's clear.
  • 00:17:42.777 --> 00:17:43.945
  • You can't make thatbe anything else.
  • 00:17:44.045 --> 00:17:46.414
  • Wait, wait, don't go anywhereuntil the promise comes.
  • 00:17:46.514 --> 00:17:50.585
  • Well, what is the promise?
  • 00:17:50.685 --> 00:17:51.619
  • Well, you, John baptizedwith water but you're
  • 00:17:51.719 --> 00:17:53.154
  • going to be baptized with theSpirit, so the promise
  • 00:17:53.254 --> 00:17:55.256
  • is the baptism withthe Holy Spirit.
  • 00:17:55.356 --> 00:17:57.358
  • Alright?Now, look at Acts 2.
  • 00:17:57.458 --> 00:18:00.528
  • The Holy Spirit comes.
  • 00:18:00.628 --> 00:18:02.029
  • Peter stands upand preaches.
  • 00:18:02.130 --> 00:18:04.699
  • And then some of 'em say,"What do we have to do?
  • 00:18:04.799 --> 00:18:07.735
  • What should we do?"
  • 00:18:07.835 --> 00:18:09.103
  • Here's Peter's answer.
  • 00:18:09.203 --> 00:18:10.338
  • Acts 2:38-39, "Then Petersaid unto them, Repent, and let
  • 00:18:10.438 --> 00:18:15.877
  • every one of you be baptized,"this is water baptism,
  • 00:18:15.977 --> 00:18:19.447
  • "in the name of Jesus Christ forthe remission of sins,
  • 00:18:19.547 --> 00:18:22.316
  • and you shall receive the giftof the Holy Spirit."
  • 00:18:22.416 --> 00:18:28.756
  • You've got to understandthat it's not one gift,
  • 00:18:28.856 --> 00:18:30.725
  • it's the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:18:30.825 --> 00:18:31.926
  • He's the gift.
  • 00:18:32.026 --> 00:18:33.194
  • You shall receive thegift of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:18:33.294 --> 00:18:37.064
  • Now, watch verse39 carefully.
  • 00:18:37.165 --> 00:18:39.400
  • "For the promise", Jesus calledthis the promise.
  • 00:18:39.500 --> 00:18:44.705
  • And what is the promise?
  • 00:18:44.805 --> 00:18:45.940
  • The baptism in theHoly Spirit, right?
  • 00:18:46.040 --> 00:18:47.642
  • "For the promise is to you,and to your children, and to all
  • 00:18:47.742 --> 00:18:53.881
  • who are afar off, as many as theLord our God will call."
  • 00:18:53.981 --> 00:19:01.689
  • See, we're trying to answerthe question,
  • 00:19:01.789 --> 00:19:03.191
  • "Well, can I receive it today.
  • 00:19:03.291 --> 00:19:04.992
  • See, I wasn't alivewhen Acts 2 happened.
  • 00:19:05.092 --> 00:19:07.195
  • I wasn't alive back then.
  • 00:19:07.295 --> 00:19:08.196
  • Can I receive it today?"
  • 00:19:08.296 --> 00:19:09.430
  • Jesus said the promise isthe baptism of the Holy Spirit
  • 00:19:09.530 --> 00:19:12.800
  • and "this promise is for you andfor your children and to all
  • 00:19:12.900 --> 00:19:17.738
  • who are afar off."
  • 00:19:17.838 --> 00:19:19.106
  • Now, if you didn't realizethis, when it says all who
  • 00:19:19.207 --> 00:19:21.542
  • afar off, that is a directreference to Robert Morris,
  • 00:19:21.642 --> 00:19:28.449
  • because I was afar off.
  • 00:19:28.549 --> 00:19:32.853
  • And you were too, even ifyou were a church member.
  • 00:19:32.954 --> 00:19:37.058
  • You were afar off.
  • 00:19:37.158 --> 00:19:39.727
  • "As many as the Lordour God will call."
  • 00:19:39.827 --> 00:19:43.798
  • Did God call you?Yeah.
  • 00:19:43.898 --> 00:19:47.301
  • So the promiseis still for you.
  • 00:19:47.401 --> 00:19:49.737
  • 'Kay, so remember threefeasts: Passover, Pentecost,
  • 00:19:49.837 --> 00:19:53.374
  • Tabernacles.'Kay.
  • 00:19:53.474 --> 00:19:54.909
  • The fulfillment of Passover,Passover was fulfilled
  • 00:19:55.009 --> 00:19:57.912
  • on the day Jesus died.
  • 00:19:58.012 --> 00:20:00.047
  • On the day Jesus died,remember, it was Passover,
  • 00:20:00.147 --> 00:20:02.717
  • Unleavened Bread, andFirstfruits in that first feast.
  • 00:20:02.817 --> 00:20:05.286
  • Passover is when a lamb,a spotless lamb was shed
  • 00:20:05.386 --> 00:20:09.056
  • for the sins of the people.
  • 00:20:09.156 --> 00:20:10.558
  • That's Jesus.
  • 00:20:10.658 --> 00:20:11.726
  • By the way, on the very daythat they were cutting
  • 00:20:11.826 --> 00:20:14.028
  • the lamb's throat, they wereto cut the lamb's throat
  • 00:20:14.128 --> 00:20:16.163
  • at nine o'clock.
  • 00:20:16.264 --> 00:20:17.231
  • That's when they nailedJesus to the cross.
  • 00:20:17.331 --> 00:20:18.666
  • At three o'clock, they wereto take the lamb
  • 00:20:18.766 --> 00:20:20.534
  • then and prepare to putit in the oven.
  • 00:20:20.635 --> 00:20:22.203
  • At three o'clock, they tookHis body off the cross
  • 00:20:22.303 --> 00:20:24.205
  • and put it in the tomb.
  • 00:20:24.305 --> 00:20:26.407
  • He completelyfulfilled Passover.
  • 00:20:26.507 --> 00:20:29.110
  • Then, they would take aloaf, the unleavened bread,
  • 00:20:29.210 --> 00:20:31.779
  • a loaf of unleavened bread,and the father
  • 00:20:31.879 --> 00:20:33.447
  • would hide it somewherein the house.
  • 00:20:33.547 --> 00:20:34.982
  • And you know whenyou pulled it out?
  • 00:20:35.082 --> 00:20:36.284
  • He pulled it out themorning after the Sabbath.
  • 00:20:36.384 --> 00:20:40.688
  • And he would wave it beforethe Lord as a symbol
  • 00:20:40.788 --> 00:20:43.591
  • of the firstfruits harvest.
  • 00:20:43.691 --> 00:20:45.726
  • It was a firstfruit.
  • 00:20:45.826 --> 00:20:46.794
  • It was a symbol ofthe harvest to come.
  • 00:20:46.894 --> 00:20:49.397
  • When the father is pullingthe loaf out of being hidden
  • 00:20:49.497 --> 00:20:51.999
  • somewhere, Jesus is comingout of the tomb as the symbol
  • 00:20:52.099 --> 00:20:56.170
  • of the firstfruitsof the harvest to come.
  • 00:20:56.270 --> 00:20:59.507
  • It all lines up.
  • 00:20:59.607 --> 00:21:03.944
  • So Passover hasbeen fulfilled.
  • 00:21:04.045 --> 00:21:07.615
  • 'Kay.
  • 00:21:07.715 --> 00:21:08.582
  • Let's -- we'll comeback to Pentecost.
  • 00:21:08.683 --> 00:21:10.284
  • Tabernacles.
  • 00:21:10.384 --> 00:21:11.152
  • What's Tabernacles?
  • 00:21:11.252 --> 00:21:12.353
  • Tabernacles includesthree feasts:
  • 00:21:12.453 --> 00:21:14.021
  • the Feast of Trumpets, the Feastof Atonement,
  • 00:21:14.121 --> 00:21:17.491
  • and the Feast of Tabernacles.Okay.
  • 00:21:17.591 --> 00:21:19.193
  • You need to understand, oneday, the tabernacles has not
  • 00:21:19.293 --> 00:21:22.063
  • been fulfilled yet, but itwill be fulfilled one day
  • 00:21:22.163 --> 00:21:24.332
  • because a trumpet'sgoing to sound.
  • 00:21:24.432 --> 00:21:27.068
  • And when that trumpet sounds,there's going to be a judgment.
  • 00:21:27.168 --> 00:21:29.570
  • But because of the atonementof the Lord Jesus Christ,
  • 00:21:29.670 --> 00:21:32.273
  • we're going to get to tabernaclewith God for all eternity.
  • 00:21:32.373 --> 00:21:36.310
  • See, that's goingto be fulfilled.
  • 00:21:36.410 --> 00:21:38.679
  • 'Kay.
  • 00:21:38.779 --> 00:21:39.513
  • So, I have aquestion for you.
  • 00:21:39.613 --> 00:21:42.149
  • Can you experience thefulfillment
  • 00:21:42.249 --> 00:21:45.820
  • of the Feast of Passover?
  • 00:21:45.920 --> 00:21:47.655
  • In other words, can youreceive Jesus
  • 00:21:47.755 --> 00:21:49.390
  • as your spotless lamb thatdied for your sins?
  • 00:21:49.490 --> 00:21:51.559
  • Can you?
  • 00:21:51.659 --> 00:21:53.327
  • But wait a minute.
  • 00:21:53.427 --> 00:21:54.161
  • You weren't alive back then.
  • 00:21:54.261 --> 00:21:57.832
  • See, this is the argumentagainst the baptism
  • 00:21:57.932 --> 00:22:00.134
  • in the Holy Spirit,which is ridiculous.
  • 00:22:00.234 --> 00:22:04.538
  • It's ridiculous.
  • 00:22:04.638 --> 00:22:05.873
  • That's all there is to it.
  • 00:22:05.973 --> 00:22:07.375
  • It is ridiculous.
  • 00:22:07.475 --> 00:22:09.410
  • Because we weren'talive back then.
  • 00:22:09.510 --> 00:22:12.446
  • We sure missed out onsomething really wonderful,
  • 00:22:12.546 --> 00:22:14.315
  • didn't we?'Kay.
  • 00:22:14.415 --> 00:22:17.318
  • You can experience thefulfillment

  • of Passover right now.Right?
  • 00:22:19.387 --> 00:22:22.990
  • Well, what about whenthe trumpet sounds?
  • 00:22:23.090 --> 00:22:24.825
  • What if you're not alivewhen the trumpet sounds?

  • Explain it.
  • 00:22:40.641 --> 00:22:42.443
  • Please, explain it to me,why we can experience
  • 00:22:42.543 --> 00:22:46.313
  • the fulfillment of the Feastof Passover and we

  • can experience the fulfillmentof the Feast of Tabernacles,
  • 00:22:48.816 --> 00:22:51.685
  • but we can't experience theFeast, the fulfillment
  • 00:22:51.786 --> 00:22:54.088
  • of the Feast of Pentecost simplybecause, well,
  • 00:22:54.188 --> 00:22:57.425
  • we weren't alive then.
  • 00:22:57.525 --> 00:23:00.194
  • I'm telling you, youcan experience it.
  • 00:23:00.294 --> 00:23:03.864
  • You can be filled with theHoly Spirit
  • 00:23:03.964 --> 00:23:06.567
  • just like the disciples were andthe 120 were in the Upper Room,
  • 00:23:06.667 --> 00:23:11.038
  • even though you weren'talive back then.
  • 00:23:11.138 --> 00:23:15.676
  • I have a friend,Dr. Peter Lord.
  • 00:23:15.776 --> 00:23:20.648
  • Some of you mighthave heard of him.
  • 00:23:20.748 --> 00:23:22.416
  • He pastored for 30 years,Park Avenue Baptist Church
  • 00:23:22.516 --> 00:23:25.219
  • in Titusville, Florida.
  • 00:23:25.319 --> 00:23:28.022
  • And great man of God.
  • 00:23:28.122 --> 00:23:30.691
  • And he's preaching a serieson the Holy Spirit
  • 00:23:30.791 --> 00:23:33.661
  • and he had been trained by histheological upbringing
  • 00:23:33.761 --> 00:23:37.832
  • that was back then and wecan't receive it today.
  • 00:23:37.932 --> 00:23:42.770
  • So he's studying, and allof a sudden, the Lord said,
  • 00:23:42.870 --> 00:23:45.706
  • just spoke to him in hisquiet time and said,
  • 00:23:45.806 --> 00:23:47.875
  • "Have you received theHoly Spirit?"
  • 00:23:47.975 --> 00:23:52.746
  • And he said, "Well,of course, Lord."
  • 00:23:52.847 --> 00:23:55.416
  • He said, "The HolySpirit lives in me.
  • 00:23:55.516 --> 00:23:58.052
  • When I got saved, the HolySpirit came to live in me,"
  • 00:23:58.152 --> 00:24:00.621
  • and that is correct.
  • 00:24:00.721 --> 00:24:01.989
  • "The Holy Spiritlives in me.
  • 00:24:02.089 --> 00:24:03.958
  • Of course I'vereceived Him."
  • 00:24:04.058 --> 00:24:06.494
  • And at that time, it'dbeen just a few months,
  • 00:24:06.594 --> 00:24:10.531
  • his mother-in-law, his wife'smother, had come --
  • 00:24:10.631 --> 00:24:13.100
  • She needed to comelive with them.
  • 00:24:13.200 --> 00:24:14.869
  • She'd come tolive with them.
  • 00:24:14.969 --> 00:24:16.237
  • And the Lord said, "Yourmother-in-law lives
  • 00:24:16.337 --> 00:24:18.472
  • in your house, but haveyou received her?"
  • 00:24:18.572 --> 00:24:22.109
  • "Not fully."
  • 00:24:22.209 --> 00:24:26.914
  • And the Lord saidto him, "Uh-huh.
  • 00:24:27.014 --> 00:24:30.384
  • And the Holy Spirit lives inyour house; but because
  • 00:24:30.484 --> 00:24:34.455
  • of your upbringing, you havenot fully received Him."
  • 00:24:34.555 --> 00:24:42.530
  • And I'm asking you, have youfully received the Holy Spirit?
  • 00:24:42.630 --> 00:24:50.471
  • PASTOR ROBERT: So I want to askyou a very simple question,
  • 00:24:51.305 --> 00:24:53.974
  • have you receivedthe Holy Spirit.
  • 00:24:54.074 --> 00:24:56.677
  • I'm not saying does the HolySpirit live inside of you
  • 00:24:56.777 --> 00:25:00.147
  • because you've acceptedJesus as your Savior.
  • 00:25:00.247 --> 00:25:03.117
  • Of course He does.
  • 00:25:03.217 --> 00:25:04.652
  • But have you received Him?
  • 00:25:04.752 --> 00:25:06.353
  • Or have you heard somenegative things about Him
  • 00:25:06.453 --> 00:25:09.323
  • or maybe you've seen somenegative examples out there,
  • 00:25:09.423 --> 00:25:12.326
  • and it's caused you to be alittle tentative
  • 00:25:12.426 --> 00:25:14.094
  • or a little fearful.
  • 00:25:14.194 --> 00:25:15.563
  • I know I was.
  • 00:25:15.663 --> 00:25:16.864
  • But there came that daywhen I said, "Holy Spirit,
  • 00:25:16.964 --> 00:25:19.667
