The Spirit And The Word Agree

Have you even known anyone who knew the scriptures inside and out, but didn’t seem to get it?
. . . on the other hand . . .
Have you ever known anyone who was so “full of the spirit” that they were goofy?

The Spirit And The Word Agree

I love what Mike said in church a couple weeks back .. that many churches (and denominations) have taken God’s provision for healing and put it in a closet. I will expand that notion by saying that MANY churches and denominations have put the Holy Spirit and His gifts in the closet.

Educating the HEAD ONLY with all of the knowledge of God’s word without learning to follow the Holy Spirit only produces dry, even prideful teachings and attitudes!!

On the other hand, trying to follow the Holy Spirit WITHOUT the knowledge of the Word produces .. well, how shall I put it .. a little craziness. Doc Hagin (spirit of rocking)

First of all, realize that the Holy Spirit WROTE the Word:
2 Peter 1:21 ESV
For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

Knowledge puffs up
1 Corinthians 8 New International Version - UK (NIVUK)
8 Now about food sacrificed to idols: we know that ‘We all possess knowledge.’ But knowledge puffs up while love builds up. 2 Those who think they know something do not yet know as they ought to know. 3 But whoever loves God is known by God.[a]

I have LONG loved a particular verse in Acts:
Acts went about doing good ..
Acts 10:38 New International Version - UK (NIVUK)
38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.

For all of you electrical engineers out there, I stumbled across the formula for power ..
For someone who is all Spirit and no Word, he is like voltage ..
You can have a high voltage with no amperage and it it all spark .. like static electricity .. (when I was in 9th grade electronics, they pictured voltage as a light weight fast skinny guy)

For someone who is all Word and no Spirit, he is like amperage ..
So on the other hand, you can have high amperage with no voltage and it won’t harm anyone (when I was in 9th grade electronics, they pictured voltage as a heavy weight slow fat guy)

But if you combine high voltage with high amperage and it can kill you .. its like getting that big fat guy moving like that skinny fast guy ..
As I was discussing this topic recently, somebody reminded me that Voltage times amperage is the formula for ….. power!!

So is having the spirit AND the word !!

I was asked one time, “What GOOD is hearing from the spirit?”

Acts 8:26-40 NIV
26 Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, “Go south to the road—the desert road—that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” 27 So he started out, and on his way he met an Ethiopian[a] eunuch, an important official in charge of all the treasury of the Kandake (which means “queen of the Ethiopians”). This man had gone to Jerusalem to worship, 28 and on his way home was sitting in his chariot reading the Book of Isaiah the prophet. 29 The Spirit told Philip, “Go to that chariot and stay near it.”
30 Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. “Do you understand what you are reading?” Philip asked.
31 “How can I,” he said, “unless someone explains it to me?” So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him.
32 This is the passage of Scripture the eunuch was reading:
“He was led like a sheep to the slaughter,
and as a lamb before its shearer is silent,
so he did not open his mouth.
33 In his humiliation he was deprived of justice.
Who can speak of his descendants?
For his life was taken from the earth.”[b]
34 The eunuch asked Philip, “Tell me, please, who is the prophet talking about, himself or someone else?” 35 Then Philip began with that very passage of Scripture and told him the good news about Jesus.
36 As they traveled along the road, they came to some water and the eunuch said, “Look, here is water. What can stand in the way of my being baptized?” [37] [c] 38 And he gave orders to stop the chariot. Then both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptized him. 39 When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord suddenly took Philip away, and the eunuch did not see him again, but went on his way rejoicing. 40 Philip, however, appeared at Azotus and traveled about, preaching the gospel in all the towns until he reached Caesarea.

Lastly, there are 3 wonderful benefits to being filled with the Spirit:


There are 2 ways you can become born again:
1. You can pray and receive Jesus there at home, or
2. You could go to a church that believes the Word of God and repeat a prayer with the minister there (as long as you mean that prayer and speak the words), (Pastor, why is it important to speak the words?)


Rom 10:8-13 NKJV
8 But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart" (that is, the word of faith which we preach):9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the Scripture says, "Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame." 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. 13 For "whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved."


(BENEFIT #1) But YOU SHALL RECEIVE POWER when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and YOU SHALL BE WITNESSES to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."

2 More BENEFITS of receiving the Holy Spirit:

The FRUIT of the SPIRIT
The GIFTS of the SPIRIT

The FRUIT of the SPIRIT
Gal 5:22-23 NIV
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, 23 GENTLENESS AND SELF-CONTROL.

The GIFTS of the SPIRIT
1 Cor 12:4-11 NKJV
4 There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
. . .
7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all:
8 for to one is given the WORD OF WISDOM through the Spirit, to another THE WORD OF KNOWLEDGE through the same Spirit,
9 to another FAITH by the same Spirit, to another GIFTS OF HEALINGS by the same Spirit,
10 to another the WORKING OF MIRACLES, to another PROPHECY, to another DISCERNING OF SPIRITS, to another DIFFERENT KINDS OF TONGUES, to another the INTERPRETATION OF TONGUES.
11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.
POWER GIFTS
REVELATION GIFTS
INSPIRATION GIFTS

But BEFORE we can have these spiritual benefits in our lives, we must have the GIVER of these benefits in our lives:

John 1:12 NKJV
12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name
Here is how to receive Jesus – Believe and Receive
Believe He died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures
Receive – pray with me now to receive Jesus :D
For those who are at home listening, follow me in prayer and mean it from your heart:
Those who are here today, repeat this prayer after me and like those at home, receive Jesus as your Savior:
Christians, pray along as well to help those who are praying aloud for the first time:
Father I believe
I call upon You Jesus
I receive You Jesus
