My heart is thrilled as I anxiously anticipate a move of the spirit of God in our church. We have focused our attention as of late on ‘What Is The Holy Ghost’. Our journey has led us through a number of scriptures which provide a basis for our expectations. One of those scriptures is found in Acts chapter 2 and verse 39. It states, “For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.” That includes you, if you will mix your faith with the scripture. Another scripture is found in:
For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.
What a wonderful promise. Again, we are included if we only believe and apply our faith with what God has already spoken. The following quote was a perfect fit with this scripture.

Now, but now, let me just not get away from that now, because I don’t want to dishonor a great gift that God has given. See? And I believe that a Spirit-filled man, or woman, or a child, that lives under the altar of God, won’t live there long until they’ll be speaking with tongues. See? I believe that he will do it, or she.
Now, you can receive the Holy Ghost, and maybe you didn’t speak with tongues when you get It. See? But if you constantly lay there before God all the time, with baptism after baptism striking you, something’s going to take place. See? You’ll get so full someday till you can’t talk nothing else. See, you–you–you try to say something; you just can’t say it no more; and you just can’t say it. And many times if people realized that that was the Holy Spirit they’d go ahead and just open their heart up and let God speak to them.
I am under a greater expectation to see the entire church consumed with the power of God just as it were on the day of Pentecost. Let’s pray and fast as God leads until we see the dynamics strike our mechanics.
