POURING OUT THE SPIRIT

 

Joel 2:28-32

 

May 20th, 2018

 

Listen to Message

 

 

 

Intro – There are 2 major events in Scripture when we are told God will pour out His Spirit. Acts 1:8 is the one we are most familiar with. It deals with NT believers. The other is our text today and it deals with the Jews.

 

 

 

I. The 2nd out-pouring, the OT prophecy. Joel 2:28, Is.44:3, Zech.12:10

 

A. People error when they apply this to the Gentiles.

 

1. Look at the time and events. Joel 2:20, Eze. 38:1-8, 15

 

2. Look at the people who are spoken of.  “Your”=Joel’s people, the Jews.

 

B. The Jewish people will preach to the world. Rev.7:4, 9-10

 

 

 

II. The 1st out-pouring or the NT Pentecost was different. Acts 1:8, Lk.24:49, Jn.14:26, Jn.16:13

 

A. He came to the Gentiles also. Jews had difficulty accepting that. Acts 2:15-16

 

B. All believers are empowered by the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:28-39

 

C. However, God would limit certain powers.

 

1. Apostles had special gifts.  Acts 19:11, 2Cor.12:12

 

2. Some gifts would cease. 1Cor.13:8-10

 

3. In Joel’s prophecy these will be restored.

 

 

 

III. Until then we should be living a Spirit filled life.

 

A. The Spirit will dwell within us until the Rapture. 2Thess.2:7

 

B. We should reflect that truth in our behavior. Gal.5:22-24

 

 

Con. – Take comfort in knowing the Holy Spirit dwells within you as a believer. And He gives you gifts that enable you to grow and to edify the other believers in their walk with Christ.

 

WHAT DO YOU FEAR

 

Luke 12 4-12

 

May 13th 2018

 

Listen to Message

 

 

 

Intro – sickness, no friends, poverty, rejection, pain, death?  Jesus gives us some advice on fear in our text today.

 

 

 

I. If you are saved, you don’t need to fear those who may kill you. Ps.56:3-4

 

A. There is something more important than life here on earth.  Mt. 16:25-26 

 

B. The worst a man can do is take your life, not your soul.  Mt.10:28

 

 

 

II. If you are not saved you should fear the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

A. He alone has the power of life and death.  1Sam.2:6

 

B. He alone can cast you into hell. Jn.5:27-29

 

C. Hell is for those who:

 

1. Reject the work of the Holy Spirit. 1Tim.1:19

 

2. Refuse to repent.  Rev.9:20-21

 

3. Deny Jesus as Lord of their lives.  Mt.7:23

 

 

 

III. If you are saved you don’t need to fear any circumstance because God is in control. Ps.8:4

 

A. He is aware of everything, even the smallest bird.  Prov.15:3, Job 34:21

 

B. We are more valuable than a bird. Rom.8:32

 

C. You are His child, he will take care of you.  Lk.12:30-32

 

D. He forgives, protects, enables. Ps.103:12, Ps.139:5-6, Phil.4:13

 

 

 

Con. – Come to the One who said “fear not” and you can have peace and hope for eternity. Or will you choose to face Him as your judge? Jesus wants to be your Savior, Protector and Refuge. When you come to Him for salvation you will no longer need to fear Him.

Intro – Prayer will be something you find to be a useful tool in your walk with the Lord. In Luke ch.11 the disciples had asked Jesus to “teach us to pray”.  So He taught them this prayer.  Three things are said in relationship with our Father in heaven.

 

 

 

I. Hallowed be Thy name.

 

            A. Hallowed means to sanctify, to set apart as holy. Jn.17:19, 1Cor.6:11

            C. When you pray this you are asking Him to come and set up His kingdom. 1Thess.4:16-18

            C. We are asking His will be done in the world.  Rev.22:3-5

 

 

 

Con.  May all of us hallow God’s name. If you have not, welcome His kingdom into your heart. If you have then seek His will to be done in your life each day.
