Episode Notes


 We need HELP in this life.
 If we are going to live according to GOD’S PURPOSE, we
need God’s POWER!

Romans 8:9 NIV You, however, are not controlled by the sinful
nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone
does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ.
1 Corinthians 6:19 NIV Do you not know that your bodies are
temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received
from God? You are not your own;
 If you and I want to live an extraordinary life for
God, a supernatural life for God, then we need

Acts 2:4 NIV All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to
speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.
Acts 10:44-46 NIV
While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on
all who heard the message. 45 The circumcised believers who had
come with Peter were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had
been poured out even on Gentiles. 46 For they heard them speaking
in tongues and praising God.
Acts 19:1-2 NIV While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul took the road
through the interior and arrived at Ephesus. There he found some
disciples 2 and asked them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when
you believed?”
They answered, “No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy
 Acts 19:6 NIV When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit
came on them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied.

Acts 8:12 NIV But when they believed Philip as he proclaimed the
good news of the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they
were baptized, both men and women.
Acts 8:14-19 NIV When the apostles in Jerusalem heard that
Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent Peter and John to
Samaria. 15 When they arrived, they prayed for the new believers
there that they might receive the Holy Spirit, 16 because the Holy
Spirit had not yet come on any of them; they had simply been
baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 17 Then Peter and John
placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.
18 When Simon (a sorcerer/magician) saw that the Spirit was given
at the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he offered them money
19 and said, “Give me also this ability so that everyone on whom I lay
my hands may receive the Holy Spirit.”

Acts 9:17-18 NIV Then Ananias went to the house and entered it.
Placing his hands on Saul, he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord—Jesus,
who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here—has
sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.”
18 Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he
could see again. He got up and was baptized,
1 Corinthians 14:18 I thank God that I speak in tongues more than
all of you.
John 7:37-39 “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink.
38 Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his
heart will flow rivers of living water.’” 39 Now this he said about the
Spirit, whom those who believed in him were to receive, for as yet the
Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

1 st Term: “The BAPTISM in the Holy Spirit”
Acts 1:4-5 ESV And while staying with them he ordered them not to
depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise of the Father,
which, he said, “you heard from me; 5 for John baptized with water,
but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”

2 nd Term: “CLOTHED with Power”
Luke 24:49 ESV And behold, I am sending the promise of my Father
upon you. But stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on

3 rd Term: “RECEIVED the Holy Spirit”
Acts 8:17 ESV Then they laid their hands on them and they received
the Holy Spirit.
[In John 7 Jesus said, “drink”] That action is very simple, for we drink
every day to quench our thirst. It is the first thing a newborn learns to
do. Drinking does, however, require some action and effort on our
part. Drinking is an act of the will. It is exactly the same in the
spiritual sense. It seems so simple, and yet it marks the point where
many stumble and fail to enter the spiritual experience for which their
souls long. They expect their thirst to be quenched without their own
act of drinking. The gift has already been promised and is, therefore,
ours for the taking from the hand of Him who loves to give good gifts
to His children. We ought not to wrestle and work to receive the Holy
Spirit. We may know believers who have come that way or may hear
testimonies that run along that line, but the reason for the struggle
resided somewhere in the recipients and not the Giver. Peter says it
is receiving a gift. Nothing should be more simple and wholly
delightful than that.

One word to those seeking this blessing. Continue until you
receive it. We cannot baptize ourselves, neither can we do more
than lead one another to the place of blessing. It is Jesus glorious
work to immerse us in the Holy Spirit. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit
is a real, definite, vivid experience. Do not be satisfied until you are
