TITLE: The Power of the Holy Ghost

Romans 8:26 

Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.

Romans 8: 19

For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

Acts 10:38

How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him. 

Romans 8:14 

For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

Galatians 5:16 

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 

  1. Ezekiel 37 vs 1 – 10:
    • He prophesied in the spirit
    • That which was impossible became possible
    • The bones were very many and very dry 
      • Breakups – in relationships with family and friends
      • Failures – not meeting your goals, the sense of worthlessness, negativity associated with failure
      • Divorce
      • Losing a job
      • Getting older
      • Death of a loved one
  2. Exodus 14 vs 27-31: Moses and the Red Sea
    • The Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh after the Israelites had left
    • Pharaoh followed the Israelites thinking that they would be trapped by the Red Sea 
    • Pharaoh made he’s chariot ready and 600 other chariots and went for them
    • As the Israelites saw the Egyptian as they encamped by the sea they became afraid and cried unto the Lord and murmured against Moses saying why did you take us out of Egypt; were there no graves in Egypt.
    • Moses then said stand still do not fear you will see the salvation of the Lord. The Egyptians you see today you will not see them again
    • Tell the people to move forward and stretch forth your rod over the red sea
    • Then the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh and the Egyptians to follow in to the red sea 
    • The angel and the pillar of cloud that was in front of the Israelites then moved behind them
    • This created darkness for the Egyptians and light for the Israelites during the night
      • May the Lord bring darkness to those that hate the saints
    • Then Moses stretched out he’s rod over the red sea and a very strong east wind divided the waters to bring about dry land
    • As the Israelites crossed they were followed by Pharaoh and the Egyptians and the Lord removed the wheels from their chariots so that it was difficult for them to move
      • May all the devices of the kingdom of darkness perish with them.
  3. 2 Kings 7 vs 6-8: The 4 Lepers
    • If we say, We will enter into the city, then the famine is in the city, and we shall die there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die.
    • And they rose up in the twilight, to go unto the camp of the Syrians: and when they were come to the uttermost part of the camp of Syria, behold, there was no man there.
      • When you walk and peak the Holy Ghost speaks to you
  4. 1 Kings 17:14–16 > The widow of Zarapath
    • Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee.
    • So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering of sticks: and he called to her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink.
    • And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand.
    • And she said, As the Lord thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.
    • And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.
      • The super natural becomes the norm as you work in the spirit
  5. 2 Kings 4 vs 32-35> The Shunamite woman who had her son dead
    • And it fell on a day, that Elisha passed to Shunem, where was a great woman; and she constrained him to eat bread. And so it was, that as oft as he passed by, he turned in thither to eat bread. And she said unto her husband, Behold now, I perceive that this is an holy man of God, which passeth by us continually.
    • Let us make a little chamber, I pray thee, on the wall; and let us set for him there a bed, and a table, and a stool, and a candlestick: and it shall be, when he cometh to us, that he shall turn in thither. And it fell on a day, that he came thither, and he turned into the chamber, and lay there.
    • 12 And he said to Gehazi his servant, Call this Shunammite. And when he had called her, she stood before him. And he said unto him, Say now unto her, Behold, thou hast been careful for us with all this care; what is to be done for thee? wouldest thou be spoken for to the king, or to the captain of the host? And she answered, I dwell among mine own people.
    • And he said, What then is to be done for her? And Gehazi answered, Verily she hath no child, and her husband is old. And he said, Call her. And when he had called her, she stood in the door. And he said, About this season, according to the time of life, thou shalt embrace a son. And she said, Nay, my lord, thou man of God, do not lie unto thine handmaid.
    • 17 And the woman conceived, and bare a son at that season that Elisha had said unto her, according to the time of life. And when the child was grown, it fell on a day, that he went out to his father to the reapers. And he said unto his father, My head, my head. And he said to a lad, Carry him to his mother. And when he had taken him, and brought him to his mother, he sat on her knees till noon, and then died.
  6. Numbers 16:28–33: Korah and company
    • Korah incited all the people against Moses, arguing that it was impossible to endure the laws Moses had instituted. 
      • Those going contrary to the word of God be swallowed up by the earth
  7. Numbers 16:46–49 >> Plague must cease
    • Korah incited all the people against Moses, arguing that it was impossible to endure the laws Moses had instituted.
    • They came as a group to oppose Moses and Aaron and said to them, “You have gone too far! The whole community is holy, every one of them, and the Lord is with them. Why then do you set yourselves above the Lord’s assembly?”
    • In the morning the Lord will show who belongs to him and who is holy, and he will have that person come near him.
    • So the Lord sent a plague on the children of Israel, they said why did you kill the people of God
      • When those that stand with the Holy Ghost the plague will end
  8. Judges 16:27–31 > Samson
    • Some time later, he fell in love with a woman in the Valley of Sorek whose name was Delilah. 5 The rulers of the Philistines went to her and said, “See if you can lure him into showing you the secret of his great strength and how we can overpower him so we may tie him up and subdue him. Each one of us will give you eleven hundred shekels[a] of silver.”
    • So Delilah said to Samson, “Tell me the secret of your great strength and how you can be tied up and subdued.” Samson answered her, “If anyone ties me with seven fresh bowstrings that have not been dried, I’ll become as weak as any other man.”
    • Then the rulers of the Philistines brought her seven fresh bowstrings that had not been dried, and she tied him with them. 9 With men hidden in the room, she called to him, “Samson, the Philistines are upon you!” But he snapped the bowstrings as easily as a piece of string snaps when it comes close to a flame. So the secret of his strength was not discovered.
    • Then Delilah said to Samson, “You have made a fool of me; you lied to me. Come now, tell me how you can be tied.” He said, “If anyone ties me securely with new ropes that have never been used, I’ll become as weak as any other man.”
    • So Delilah took new ropes and tied him with them. Then, with men hidden in the room, she called to him, “Samson, the Philistines are upon you!” But he snapped the ropes off his arms as if they were threads.
    • Delilah then said to Samson, “All this time you have been making a fool of me and lying to me. Tell me how you can be tied.” He replied, “If you weave the seven braids of my head into the fabric on the loom and tighten it with the pin, I’ll become as weak as any other man.” So while he was sleeping, Delilah took the seven braids of his head, wove them into the fabric 14 and[b] tightened it with the pin.
    • Again she called to him, “Samson, the Philistines are upon you!” He awoke from his sleep and pulled up the pin and the loom, with the fabric. Then she said to him, “How can you say, ‘I love you,’ when you won’t confide in me? This is the third time you have made a fool of me and haven’t told me the secret of your great strength.” 16 With such nagging she prodded him day after day until he was sick to death of it.
    • So he told her everything. “No razor has ever been used on my head,” he said, “because I have been a Nazirite dedicated to God from my mother’s womb. If my head were shaved, my strength would leave me, and I would become as weak as any other man.”
    • He awoke from his sleep and thought, “I’ll go out as before and shake myself free.” But he did not know that the Lord had left him. Then the Philistines seized him, gouged out his eyes and took him down to Gaza. Binding him with bronze shackles, they set him to grinding grain in the prison. 22 But the hair on his head began to grow again after it had been shaved.
    • Now the rulers of the Philistines assembled to offer a great sacrifice to Dagon their god and to celebrate, saying, “Our god has delivered Samson, our enemy, into our h While they were in high spirits, they shouted, “Bring out Samson to entertain us.” So they called Samson out of the prison, and he performed for them.”
  9. 1 Samuel 5:1–5>The overturning of the god, Dagon.
  10. 1 Samuel 5:6–12 > Philistines in Ashdod smitten with tumors.
  11. 1 Kings 17:17–24 > Elijah raises the widow’s son.
