Here are some nuggets
that I've learned about flowing with the Holy Spirit:
* Contrary to some wacky theology,
the Holy Spirit is not a tongue. He is a person ... a person who
thinks, feels, and manifest His presence in a very real, tangible
* You'll never have to wonder if
the Person of the Holy Spirit is present. He is an extrovert who
loves to make His presence known!
* The Holy Spirit is so desirous of
an intimate relationship with you. He longs for conversation with
* The closer your relationship is
with Him, the more intimate His voice will be with you. In other
words, the further that you are from Him, the louder that His
voice must be. When you are up close and passionate, His voice
will become just a mere whisper.
* Conversing with the Holy Spirit
isn't restricted to just a church setting. He longs for you to
talk to Him throughout your day. Talk to Him. Ask Him questions.
Why? Because Jesus said that this Paracletos is called to walk
alongside you. You wouldn't dare ignore someone who is sitting
beside you in your vehicle. You wouldn't keep the radio playing
for the whole trip. Instead, you'd converse with them. This
Person, the Holy Spirit, desires to become so real ... to quotes
Kathryn ... "He (the Holy Spirit) is more real to me than you
* The more intimate that you
become, the greater that His anointings and giftings will become
in your life. Why? Because He desires to flow through you. (1
Corinthians 12 & 14).
* His giftings aren't reserved for
the 5 fold ministry office. There's not a single verse to
substantiate that. He desires for the Gifts of the Spirit to
manifest in those who have drawn nigh to Him. That means that
Royal Ranger and Missionette leaders can be mightily used by the
Holy Spirit. Wouldn't it be radical to have your 5-year-old class
teacher to allow the Holy Spirit to flow through them and impact
their entire class?
* There's much more to share ...
I'll do that at the Ignite
Conference. DO NOT COME ALONE! The fire ... the passion ...
the impartation .... MUST be caught by your leaders. Some things
are better caught than taught. Listening to a CD or watching a DVD
at times is just a poor substitute for being under the spout where
the glory was poured out. Sacrifice. Ask your staff to sacrifice
if necessary to be here. Again I say, DO NOT COME ALONE! I'm
bringing at least 25 of my staff. I can't even imagine what will
happen in my Royal Rangers, Missionettes, Sunday School classes,
and children's church after this conference!!!
