Ac 2:37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
Ac 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
The gift we all shall receive is the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost is a part of the trinity...Father, Son and Holy Ghost. The three are one, yet have separate offices or functions...all working together...but with individual missions. The Father is Creator...In Control of All things, Oversees...the Son...He is Redeemer and Deliverer...the Christ, the Messiah...God-man, our interceder...It is in the NAME of JESUS where POWER is imparted from us...the power imparted to us is ...THE HOLY GHOST.
I am disappointed I have lived the first ten years of my walk with God unknowing or not taught the necessity and need of the Holy Ghost. BUT GOD...who is faithful...man didn't teach me the power and need for the Holy Ghost...God did! Man cannot live the abundant supernatural filled with power life without recognizing the Holy Ghost. How is it so many rarely even acknowledge His part in our lives????
Satan the great deceiver has stolen from the believer their power to walk IN Christ...that power is the Holy Ghost...
We are sealed with the Holy Spirit Eph. 1:13, He is our Comforter, He is our teacher for ALL things, He will help us remember the Word John 14:26, He will guide us into ALL truth, and will show us things to come John 16:13 He anoints us, He abides in us, again teaches us all things 1John 2:27, He has given us ALL things pertaining to life and godliness 2Peter 1:3 and as today's verse tells us He IS THE GIFT of naming JESUS.
If you are not trusting or relying in Jesus and enjoying the Gift He has given you...START TODAY!!
Don't put God in a box, they very same Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever along with God and the Holy Spirit. He wants to fill you daily to the over-flow, He wants to empower you to do things you can not even imagine.
Who said Paul and Peter, James and John are the last of the Mohican's?!!! God can use you to do the like or even more...Don't let man discourage you or tell you any different. God has great plans for you, we need to embrace the equipment He has given us to achieve His work in and through us. Our work has nothing to do with us, and the Holy Spirit does the work for one purpose and that is to glorify God...we cannot glorify God on our own. The Holy Spirit has God's back and He assures God's work, God's purpose and agenda and helps us to be obedient to our call!
I would rather die than to have the power of Holy Spirit removed from me...living without His power is like a dry waste land, like a hamster on a wheel...working and never getting anywhere.
Mind you, If you have claimed Jesus you are sealed...however their is much more to the Holy Spirit that meets the eye! Ask God to show you more!!!
YOU ARE POSITIONED BY GOD AND HIGHLY FAVORED!! WALK IN TRUTH AND IN THE POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST!
