What DO we believe? Lesson 4 (page 3)
Holy Ghost and Fire!!

John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

Jesus said, “I will pray that the Father send you a Comforter.”

“The Comforter is the Holy Ghost.”

The Father will send the Comforter in My Name.”

“Whom I will send unto you from the Father.”

Then states, “I will send him unto you.”

Jesus explained the mystery of who was coming and who the Holy Ghost is when he concluded, “I will come to you.”

John 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you .”

Jesus is the Holy Ghost, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace, The Mighty God. He is the Word, Flesh and Spirit. This is the reason he could breathe on his Disciples and say, “Receive ye the Holy Ghost.”

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.

John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

This is the reason Jesus could breathe on his disciples and tell them to “receive ye the Holy Ghost.” He was God, (the Word), manifested in the flesh.


GOD’S SPIRIT GIVES STRENGTH TO HIS SERVANTS TO SPEAK

2 Samuel 23:2 The Spirit of the LORD spake by me, and his word was in my tongue.

Isaiah 28:11 For with stammeringlips and another tongue will he speak to this people.


STAMMERING LIPS AND ANOTHER TONGUE IS EVIDENCE THAT YOU BELIEVE

John 4:42 And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world

John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: (His Name is Jesus).

John 3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.


JESUS SAID THESE SIGNS SHALL FOLLOW THEM THAT BELIEVE

Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

Many people say that they believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and this “believing” is enough for Salvation. I ask you as Paul asked the followers of John the Baptist in Acts. Have you received the Holy Ghost since you believed?

Acts 19:2 He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.

Acts 19:3 And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John's baptism.

Acts 19:4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.

Acts 19:5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

Acts 19:6 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.

So “new tongues” is the initial sign of the Holy Ghost or the Spirit of God dwelling in you. These tongues are the sign that you believe. This is the sign that You have received the breath, spirit, or wind of the Almighty God.
