Do Not Quench The Spirit – Part 1
The Scriptures tell us in 1 Corinthians 12:1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant. In 1 Thessalonians 5:19 – 21 we are told, “Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good.” From these passages of Scripture, we can readily see that the Lord does not want us to be in the dark when it comes the ministry of the Holy Spirit in His church today. Jesus told us in the book of John 14:16-18 that He would be leaving but that He would send us another helper, the Holy Spirit. Many in the church today do not understand the operation of the Holy Spirit. In this series we are going to discover from the Scriptures the importance of a Holy Spirit filled church. A church that has knowledge of the gifts of the Spirit. A church that lives in intimate fellowship with the Holy Spirit and senses His promptings in ministering to the church and the world around them. Let’s come together and desire, discover, and develop in the giftings of the Holy Spirit.
Part 1 – God desires that the move and gifts of the Holy Spirit be operative in His church. Many in the church today know very little about the gifts and move of the Holy Spirit. In this message we discuss the importance of this move in the church, God desires that we not be ignorant of His gifts in order that His church may profit from them. You will be challenged to extend your faith and desire earnestly the best gifts!
