Pentecostal Power--Church Return to God!!!

I have been re-reading the book of Acts recently myself. I am seeing again that signs and wonders were not the exceptions, they were the norm of the early church. Healings and supernatural happenings were expected and occurred regularly.

Some explain this by saying we are living in a different dispensation and that the age of miracles is over. That was for a specific time and place to authenticate the message of the apostles, but we no longer need that today. Really!! Does God really divide history up into neat little segments where he acts one way with one generation and a totally different way with another? If so, then God is not, “the same yesterday and today and forever” Hebrews 13:8. If he does respond differently at different times, then he is one kind of God at one point in history and an entirely different God at another.

The church today needs to discover once again that we have an unchanging God and an unchanging kingdom. We need once again to discover the power of Pentecost. We need to become a Pentecostal church — I am not talking about a denomination — I am talking about an Acts 2 church. We need to be filled with the Spirit. We need to be operating in the gifts of the Spirit. We need to see people’s lives turned around. We need to see people healed physically, emotionally, relationally, socially and spiritually. We need to experience the unity of the Spirit as the early church did. We need to be living in genuine love for each other, and when we fail at that then we need to seek reconciliation. We need to have the fire fall and the people of God to rise up.

If that is going to happen in our church certain conditions need to be met and certain perceptions need to be changed. We need a major shift. Pentecostal power comes when you realize:

Point 1. The Christian life is not about keeping rules, but about knowing Christ.
John 14:6 “Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life, and that no one comes to the Father except through him,” Pentecostal power comes when you realize:

Point 2. The Christian life is not just about salvation, but transformation.
If you think that the Christian life is only about being born again, think again. It is not just about salvation, it is about transformation. Pentecostal power comes when:

Point 3. You overcome apathy (lack of enthusiasm) with zeal.
You have to grow. You have to want to be transformed into the image of Christ and want to be made like him.

Let’s go to A NEW DIMENSION!! ”
