Open Heaven 10 October 2021 TOPIC: Are You Baptized in the Holy Spirit

MEMORISE: But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Acts 1:8

READ:  John 7:37-39 (KJV)

37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.

38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Kings 15:1-34, 1 Kings 16:1-34, 1 Kings 17:1-24, 1 Kings 18:1-46, 1 Kings 19:1-21

Open Heaven 10 October 2021 MESSAGE:

The Holy Spirit baptism is very important to every heaven-bound Christian for many reasons. The first is the personality of the Baptizer – the Holy Spirit Himself. The Holy Spirit, being the third person in the Trinity, plays the role of the preservation of the believer after salvation. The Bible says and grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption Ephesians 4:30.

There are lots of virtues the Holy Spirit imparts on believers when they receive His baptism. For example, in our text today, we read of the flow of the rivers of living water symbolizing the Holy Spirit. Just as water is very important for the survival of the physical well-being of man, so also the living water or water of life is very important for spiritual well-being. The spirit of a Christian can get dehydrated and ultimately become dormant due to the lack of this living water. Another fundamental blessing from the Holy Spirit is what we find in the instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ in today's memory verse - power.  The disciples of old would not have been able to face the Jewish elders had they not received power from the Holy Ghost. Without the baptism of the Holy Spirit there can be no power or boldness for Christians to evangelize and witness to the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible says in Acts 4:31


Open Heaven 9 October 2021 – OPEN HEAVEN FOR TODAY


“And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.” 


The Holy Spirit also enables a believer to pray without ceasing when he or she speaks in tongues. This is the promise of our Lord in the Great Commission – that we shall speak with new tongues Mark 16:17. Beloved, do you lack boldness as a Christian? Are you hesitant about sharing your conviction on the Lordship of Jesus? Are you rising and falling into sin because you think it is impossible to withstand the wiles of the devil? Are demonic forces tormenting you? Pray earnestly for the baptism of the Holy Spirit today and you will receive power and boldness for victorious Christian living, in the mighty name of Jesus.

Open Heaven 10 October 2021 PRAYER POINT:

Lord, please send Your Holy Spirit to empower and embolden me now and always, in the mighty name of Jesus.

Open Heaven 10 October 2021 HYMN: Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!

1.    Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning
our song shall rise to thee.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

2.    Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee,
casting down their golden crowns
around the glassy sea;
cherubim and seraphim
falling down before thee,
who wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

3.    Holy, holy, holy!
Though the darkness hide thee,
Though the eye of sinful man
thy glory may not see,
Only thou art holy;
there is none beside thee
Perfect in pow’r, in love, and purity.

4.    Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise
thy name in earth and sky and sea.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!
