LISTEN NOW! John, Greg, and Pat discuss stories of the manifestation of the glory of God. John begins by sharing and encounter that occurred first thing that morning. He shares that while he was in his office abiding he heard a knock on his door and it was his 13 year old son Elijah. Elijah came in and asked his dad for the next discipleship booklet as he has been abiding with the Lord daily before school. He then shares with his dad, John; that he had been abiding and wants to be filled with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and wanted to receive this gift. He says I have the faith dad. So John asks Elijah to pull up a chair and he prays for Elijah to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. John shares how they began praising God and worshiping him and then Elijah stepped out in faith and began to pray and was filled with Spirit of God and began to pray in the Spirit. John shares how his son is not a talkative young man but God overtook him and he prayed on his own for over fifteen minutes. He describes how the glory of God filled his office. As Elijah finished praying he begins to say Holy, Holy, Holy; Come Jesus Come. They describe how important it is not to go in your head and try to figure out what God is going to do. They also share how Pat was filled by the Holy Spirit the night they anointed the borders of Escambia County. Up until this point, Pat had been praying for three years to receive the baptism of the Spirit. They continue to share how this night of praying over the four borders of Escambia County and how it was Pat’s time. They share how while they were driving to one of the borders to pray for the blessing of this county and dealing with spiritual wickedness in the area Pat had an encounter. Somehow Pat’s 32 ounce ice cold cup of soda fell right into his lap and almost at that exact moment he got out of his head began to pray in the Spirit. They share how that night was powerful for so many reasons. They shared the importance of getting out of your head when it comes to the things of God and to receive what God has for you by faith and watch God move on your behalf.
John answered them all, “I baptize you with water. But one who is more powerful than I will come, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
13 If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it. Mark 16:20
