PRAYER TO POSSESS THE HOLY SPIRIT
How To Receive The Holy Spirit?
Why the Holy Spirit is important to me?
Bible Reading: John 14:13-18
“13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
16 And I will pray for the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” John 14:13-18
Possess the Holy Spirit is our prayer bombs for today. We need to discuss and have much time to pray for the possessing of the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit is a Gift that many so-called Christians of this generation do not serious about. Those that serious spent less time to ask for this wonderful power from God.
Holy Spirit is the only Spirit that God promised His children to possess. But today, many are possessing the spirit of snake, scorpion spirit as well as dog and animal spirits, and this has made our society an environment of satanic activities. The power behind every successful Christian on this earth and in heaven, at last, is the power of the Holy Spirit.
“But when the Comforter comes, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.” John 15:26-27
IMPORTANCE OF THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
Possess the Holy Spirit is the reason why you are a child of God: “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” Romans 8:14
Enables you to become a powerful witness of the Gospel message: But ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost comes upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me, both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Acts 1:8.
The Holy Spirit gives you the authority to overcome other powers. “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover.” Mark 16:17-18.
The Holy Spirit is our teacher that know everything and teach us everything: “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” John 14:26
The Holy Spirit gives you special spiritual gifts and develops spiritual fruit in your life.
STEPS TO RECEIVING THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
The following are steps for receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit:
Repent and Be Baptized: “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.” Acts 2:38.
Believe that the Holy SPIRIT Is For You: For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. (Acts 2:39)
Desire It: Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (but this spake He of the Spirit, which they that believed on Him should receive; for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.) (John 7:37-39)
Accept It As A Gift From God: The Holy Spirit is a gift, and it was given to the Church on the Day of Pentecost.
Because it is a gift, you can do nothing to earn it. You cannot buy it, or borrow it. Remember the Simon sorcerer who desired to buy the Holy Spirit and how he was disgraced.
“And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.
But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.
Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee. For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.” Acts 8:18-23
Yield To God: Yield your tongue to God in praise and worship. Set your heart and mind unto Jesus Christ. [Colossians 3:1-2].
Begin to praise and thank God for the gift of the Holy Spirit:
“And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” Acts 2:4
One thing is certain when praying for the Holy Spirit, you will experience a change of atmosphere. As you praise Him audibly you may first experience stammering lips. As you continue to yield your tongue to the Holy Spirit and He will speak through you with strange language to your understanding.
This is the confirming physical sign of Holy Spirit baptism: “For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.” Isaiah 28:11
Through the laying on of hands. You can also receive the Holy Spirit through the prayers of other believers: This can also be achieved through the laying on of hands as it happened in Acts 8-9, 19. Also without the laying on of hands like Acts 2, 4, 10.
