The afternoon of this Friday, 12 -26 -2014 is opened by the performance of the hymn Nº 372 « To you the Glory…. » followed by the prayer of the Man of GOD.
Acts 19, 18 -19:«Also many of those who were now believers came, confessing and divulging their practices. And a number of those who had practiced magic arts brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted the value of them and found it came to fifty thousand pieces of silver».
This morning I spoke to you and the Lord has healed patients. We have not imposed hands, but in an action such as this, the Lord also works.
In this passage, those who believed destroyed things that were not of GOD. But you say you believe and you keep all the old stuffs and you want that GOD gives you the HOLY SPIRIT; Which HOLY SPIRIT? If you want to receive the HOLY SPIRIT, you must absolutely become a new creature according to2 Corinthians 5: 17.
Acts 19, 1-6:«And it happened that while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul passed through the inland country and came to Ephesus. There he found some disciples. And he said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” And they said, “No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.” And he said, “Into what then were you baptized?” They said, “Into John’s baptism.” And Paul said, “John baptized with the baptism of repentance, telling the people to believe in the one who was to come after him, that is, Jesus.” On hearing this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they began speaking in tongues and prophesying».
John’s baptism was not the first baptism. The first baptism was through the waters of the flood.
Genesis 6, 1- 22:« When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them….This is what Noah did according to all that God commanded him».
Noah, a mortal man, walked with GOD. This is what GOD wants from you; that you should be fair and honest. The Earth was rotten, filled with evil deeds. But Noah was a righteous man and he walked with GOD. You too, do this. GOD showed Noah how to build the Ark; this is the Christian faith, it is not that you’ll do what you want to. If Noah had not complied with the dimensions given by GOD, the water would have been coming in to destroy him.
We must work according to GOD’s dictation. You also do this and waiting to see what God will do. Man must live as God spoke to him, according to GOD’s dictation. Whatever the situations that come, you suffered these situations, The Lord is there.
GOD asked Noah to get supplies when he entered in the ark. If it was you, you would have taken nothing and you would have said: As GOD is Almighty, He will provide.
If you too you obey to GOD’ dictation, the path will be easy. See your work, see yourself as you work; difficulties on difficulties. What is your work? Noah shows us in 1 Peter 3, 21:«Baptism, which corresponds to this, now, saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ» This is how we should serve GOD and enter in heaven.
GOD saved Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. If you serve Him like that, GOD will save you too. Even in difficulties, he will save you.
Noah didn’t want to be destroyed; he obeyed to GOD to build the ark. You too, obey to build your faith.
A beloved from Texas said that he was baptized in his native religion and he was not convince that it was the true baptism; he wished to know whether he should be baptized again in the True Church of God. The Man of GOD responded by saying that the baptism without truth has no value.
There’s no place to keep the sin in the Christian faith, there is only Holiness and Holiness. With the healing that God has made through his word, you do not need even a judgment to go to hell if you refuse this word.
Proverbs 22, 6: «Train up a child in the way he should go even when he is old he will not depart from it».
You who do not teach your child, you whose child by becoming a thief has seen your way of life, you are impadonnable.
The Lord has confirmed the truth of the teaching of this Friday afternoon by healing 50 patients.
