Taking a Closer Look at The Baptism of The Holy Spirit Part 1

Pastors have indeed, become business men and experts in fund raising activities and networking. They are praying very little, they are worshipping very little; and yet, they are out there doing a million things on their own strength. Many of us can do great and mighty things on our own strength; even as those abilities were giving by God.


“A Look at the Attack Against the Prophetic Sound”

            It amazes me how spiritually dry some church services
are. I am also equally amazed concerning how out-of-touch some of our leaders
are from the Holy Ghost’s Presence. It seems like their focus is completely strayed
of what is truly important. Their focus is on the size of their buildings, how
broke they really are and how they can manipulate people into giving more money
to keep their ministries alive.

Pastors
have indeed, become business men and experts in fund raising activities and
networking. They are praying very little, they are worshipping very little; and
yet, they are out there doing a million things on their own strength. Many of
us can do great and mighty things on our own strength; even as those abilities
were giving by God. It does not take them supernatural manifestation or anointing
to get things done; they just exercise their God-given gifts.

The
last time I checked, Oprah Winfield and Donald Trump are not Christians; but there
is no doubt that these two individuals have achieved much in life. The people
that were building the Tower of Babel were doing so, without God’s approval or
strength. It took God himself to come down and stop their project. So, much of
what many ministries are achieving is not really by God Will; it is just their
own natural abilities in action.

With
this short, five part series, I want to take a closer look at the Baptism of
the Holy Spirit. I want to address the attack against the manifestation of the
Prophetic Gift and its detrimental results in the church.

Five months later he lost his first wife to cancer in December of that same year. This initiated a deep valley of suffering in his life, a mountain of costly mistakes and the embracing of lifestyles of sin that are well documented through this blog.

In Alaska, Angel continued his social work-related career and his ministry of preaching, teaching and writing.

  1. You are my righteousness to the world. Do not be afraid to speak the truth to those around you. My glory will shine like righteousness through you as you minister to those around you. Step out in faith, knowing obedience is rewarded in heaven. Mighty men and women of God. I am building an army to wage war against evil. By your obedience you will be part of my army.
