The Holy Ghost Difference | Pastor Chuck Salvo

The Holy Ghost Difference

  1. “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; Acts‬ ‭1‬:‭8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬
    1. Dynamite Power to be a witness
    2. Witness- One who can give a firsthand account of something seen, heard, or experienced.
  1. The disciples no doubt were eye witnesses of His Resurrection
    1. Paul gave testimony of His resurrection on his way to Damascus
    2. Jesus called us believers to give a first hand account of something we have seen and experienced!
    3. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” II Corinthians‬ ‭5‬:‭17‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬
    4. The work of the Holy Ghost first off makes the believer a new creation
    5. Not the same! Has there been a change?
  1. Realizing who is now in you!
    1. “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.” Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭11‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬
    2. God is in me to testify of His reality
    3. Holy Ghost comes in to make me new, and to testify of a realm that is not of this world
  1. Not of this world
    1. “They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.”John‬ ‭17‬:‭16‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬
    2. “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.” I John‬ ‭2‬:‭15‬-‭16‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬
    3. “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans‬ ‭12‬:‭2‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬
    4. “Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” James‬ ‭4‬:‭4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬
    5. “If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” John‬ ‭15‬:‭19‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬
    6. “Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul,” I Peter‬ ‭2‬:‭11‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬
  1. The Holy Ghost makes the difference!
    1. The person of God through the Spirit dwells in the believer
    2. To what measure is based upon surrender and obedience
    3. He is power and upon surrendering He empowers to over come the devil and all evil.
    4. He empowers to live a holy life upon surrender!
    5. Surrender- To relinquish possession or control of (something) to another because of demand or compulsion
