TO BE EMPOWERED

Old Pentecostals and even Charismatics, spoke of ‘the anointing’ on people etc. We were wrong. Christ is the Anointed One and we participate in His anointing though gospel belief. Then occurs: ‘God has anointed us’. 2 Cor.1 the only place in the N.T. where such is stated. There is an older A.O.G. author, Gordon Fee, who wrote a wonderful book on being empowered – not anointed. One forgets much. Now I began to see regarding anointings becaue it came up in our meetings and I had to look into it. We are given power dunamis when filled with the Holy Ghost through speaking supernatural languages. ‘Dunamis’ means – Power to do a miracle, the miracle itself. When being filled with the Holy Ghost as in Acts 2:4, the large body of disciples received dunamis and each one of them did a miracle. It was not to heal the sick. It was to speak in supernatural languages, ‘they began to speak’ not the Holy Ghost began to speak. His was the supernatural action but theirs was the action of faith to surrender to Him and to open their mouths and speak. As they did this, the Holy Ghost put the languages in their mouths – throats, tongues, lips and out came His language of heaven. Not all beievers believe or surrender enough to the Lord to even believe the possibioity for today. The apostate, rebellious so-called church or churches, have led them all astray. It is for today. Paul had this dunamis that he called ‘the seal of the Holy Ghost (Ephesians 1). Peter did not have that understanding. Peter was inspired on Pentecost day. Paul was taught directly by Jesus. However Peter and the other eleven went out to all the ends of the Roman Empire and Jesus personally was with each one. Glorious glory – Jesus said ‘Lo I am with you always even unto the end of the world’. We discover this through the Lost Books of the bible that the believers had for a first three hundred years – as shown by later church fathers who wrote of it. It is said in one translation: ‘Paul’s power increased’. We should have that experience also.#Christian #BibleStudy #IreneBonneyFaulkes #Truth #wordofgod #HolySpirit #Quotes
