I have always enjoyed reading and preaching on the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. God promised to pour His Spirit out on ALL flesh; male and female, young and old. This promise is to every born again believer. Acts 2:38-39 declares, “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. 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.”
As I’ve already mentioned on a previous post, I spoke at APEX last weekend. Many of the youth that were in attendance received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. On Sunday morning I left APEX and was scheduled to preach at Beaver Falls Christian Assembly. Pastor Dale Russo and his family were visiting relatives in Missouri to celebrate his mother-in-law’s birthday, and I was filling in for him.
After ministering the Word of God, we had a wonderful time in the altar. An elderly lady came forward and said with great eagerness, “I want to receive the Holy Spirit!” We laid our hands on her, and the power of God came upon her. Instantly, she began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave her the utterance. Many others were ministered to as well. To God be all the glory!
After the service, I was informed that the lady was a visitor that morning and that she was 94 years old! 94! That was awesome! That took on a whole new meaning to me of ALL FLESH! These are the days of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and God is filling all those that are hungry and thirsty.
John 7:37-39 declares, “In the last day, that great day of the feast, 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 believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)”
On the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles, Jesus stood up and cried aloud, “If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.” No matter how young or how old you are, Jesus wants you to be filled with the Holy Spirit and serve Him with all your heart. Don’t allow satan to convince you that your best days are gone! The Lord said, “The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing . . .”
