Does a person who hasn’t been baptized in the Holy Spirit “have” the Holy Spirit in them nonetheless? We often tell non-tongues talking believers they need to “receive” the Holy Spirit. Does this mean they don’t already “have” the Holy Spirit? It’s a matter of nomenclature but the common language in which this is discussed can be confusing to people who haven’t come up in a Charismatic, Pentecostal milieu… Let’s look at some scripture to hopefully find some clarity: Before His ascension Jesus met with His disciples and imparted the Holy Spirit to them: [Jhn 20:22 KJV] 22 And when … (click link or title to continue)
Morning Light – Isaiah 30 Today: [Isaiah 30] Learn to Limit Your Counselors: In Isaiah 30 Isaiah reproves the people of the city of Jerusalem for giving heed to wrong counselors. It was the common consensus at this time that Jerusalem needed to form an alliance with Egypt in order to avoid being invaded by Assyria. Isaiah in effect says it doesn’t matter if “everyone is saying it” this is the wrong course of action. Just because all those around you are in agreement about what you should do next doesn’t make them right. The promise of God through Isaiah … (click link or title to continue)
Do you know someone who needs to repent? [Rom 2:4 KJV] 4 Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? If you know someone who needs to repent – give them God’s goodness. If you speak to the sinner of something other than the goodness of God then your agenda is something other than their repentance. Christian culture has been lambasting and excoriating sinners for centuries and the mass of humanity is plunging headlong into hell while the church smugly concludes they are getting what … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – Isaiah 29 Today: [Isaiah 29] Woe to Ariel, the City of David: In this chapter Isaiah calls the city of Jerusalem “Ariel” which means “Lion of God”. The people of the city considered themselves the very expression of spiritual fervor but in fact Isaiah points out how cold hearted they have become toward the message and the messengers that the Father sent to them. The warning from Isaiah is that the entrenched self-interest of the people would eventually lead to their run. Yet in the midst of what Isaiah describes as a total destruction of Jerusalem there … (click link or title to continue)
Morning Light – Isaiah 28 Today: [Isaiah 28] The Stammering Lips of God’s Deliverance. In this chapter Isaiah declares that the northern kingdom has erred in its counsel like drunken leaders who have no wisdom. He then turns to the southern kingdom and exhorts them to learn from the bitter lessons of the northern kingdom. We may not be drunk with alcohol but Jesus warned us in Luke 21:34 not to allow our hearts to be drunken with worry and fear thus leading us to make decisions that exclude God and result in our own failure. Then Isaiah points us … (click link or title to continue)
Morning Light – Isaiah 27 Today: [Isaiah 27] Leviathan, the Piercing Serpent. In this chapter Isaiah steps back into the deepest spiritual perspective yet seen in the book of Isaiah thus far. He speaks of a time when Leviathan, the king of all the children of pride (according to Job), is ultimately brought to judgment in the earth. Leviathan is a serpent that swims in the troubled waters of unredeemed humanity. His scales are his pernicious opinions that refuse to yield to the reality of God’s truth. Unbelievers are completely blinded by pride and believers as well if we are … (click link or title to continue)
