Are we in the Revival now, as they were then? IF we are, there are signs to prove it.



If the Holy Spirit
within you gives you power, might, ability to be used with enduement of power, you are filled with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the MIGHT of the Trinity. The prophets of the Old Testament did miracles and spoke by the power and inspiration of the Spirit. Jesus came as a Man, and did mighty miracles by the power of the Holy Spirit. Today, we are to be empowered by the Holy Spirit.


Micah 3:8
"BUT TRULY I AM FULL OF POWER BY THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD AND OF JUSTICE AND MIGHT."

For us to have power, we need to connect to the Source of Power. The power of the Spirit changes us. Before Pentecost, the disciples were unsure, unsteady, and unfaithful. They forsook Jesus and fled during His arrest and trial. They were weak and fearful. Yet, after Pentecost, they were brave, faithful, steady, sure, able to stand in face of persecution, victorious, enthusiastic, and bold. The change was effected by the arrival of a Person known as the Holy Spirit.

Zechariah 4:6
"NOT BY MIGHT, NOR BY POWER, BUT BY MY SPIRIT,' SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS."

We do not just go out to cast mountains into the sea, or leap over tall buildings. We have a ministry, and enduement of power aid us to achieve what the Lord wants us to do. The Holy Spirit imparts power for a reason. He wants to have a work done.

Without the Spirit, we are powerless. One may have a cannon, but without the gunpowder and a cannon ball-- it is powerless. Even the gunpowder is powerless, without a spark. So it is with the church. If the Spirit can get the cannon, the ball, and the gunpowder together and provide the spark -- there is power. If we ignore the Spirit, we ignore the power.

If we have a powerless religion, a form of godliness with no healing power, no communication with God power, no spiritual enlightenment power, no miracles, no discernment of spirits, we may be filled with a different spirit.
