why has for prayer in our father in heaven as we consider material it is through your profit I asked to give us the very same spirit that inspired these words they could do for us what you intend not ask for this gift in the name of Jesus amen I feel like not giving you references just because you're going to e-mail me and ask for the fifth this is the testimony 's ministers we may have had a measure of the Spirit of God in prayer and faith we are continually seek for more of the spirit it will never do it to cease our efforts if we do not progress if we do not place ourselves in an attitude as will former and latter rain we shall lose our souls and responsibility will be at our door your level said as you have therefore received Christ Jesus so walking and is not an optional idea the same way I became a Christian by confession by repentance by turning away from my sins my apologists all of you for some early for coming in even before I told you I receive Christ Jesus by repentance and confession and that is how I am to maintain my experience with him I needed those Holy Spirit is the very beginning and I need some more in my experience continually it just won't do for us to think nor what Jesus had to say about the list what he's saying hello John sixteen are full of this is illustrated that if a son to his father you learn something about Middle Eastern diet finally said they were with the sun asked for three things you had a fish in a piece of that something of very severe diet is because children tend to thing others is available of the last four and woman asking for their so you might wonder why there is one New Testament about about diet noncitizens are some reasons it wasn't a lot of variety there that they could be so even the children were asking for a value of fish for a piece of bread and use of the father is not going to give them a stone or a scorpion or a snake because he loves them and while some things might be unnecessary when they're asking for nutrition of course he's going to see them which is illustrated asking for the Holy Spirit in every case there was illustrated by hungry and thirsty so I should have listened that is one of the conditions of receiving more of the spirit saying Isaiah out for my outdoor water on him that is Thursday floods upon the dry ground help for my spirit one of the conditions receiving the Spirit is to hunger and thirst we cultivate a hunger and thirst by asking what meaning to say it will never do to cease our efforts is from the same source only those who are living up to the light they have will receive greater life and lastly our daily advancing in the exemplification of the active Christian virtues we shall not recognize the manifestation the Holy Spirit and the latter rain is so manifest testimonies and ministers somewhere around page five hundred and seven let me say this about again when the lottery and cons it will not be such that you just look at Safeco that is the letter read those who are not living up to the life that is given them was coming down around them will not have even been times of fire it may be falling apart all around us we shall not discern for receiving at no point in our experience can we dispense with the assistance of that which enables us to make first start at my house understand more about the metaphor of rain because you are ever involved by Ray does not refer to as a case that is the in this metaphor these were murdered by his Spirit in my life I will say what again I will see the incorruptible even on the tacit the word of God which lives in advice throughout the only comment on this illustration is version is in an is is that in my life I is that while there is little him will him and him I is for you I feel my ranges not give life to death I latter rain right things living in and this is why we are the searching in our experience playing away our sins by receiving more of the early rain experience are preparing to receive the ripening process I say is is that guy said he euthanized each even now he is now a certain measure of the spirit that exactly matches the duties he is usually enough of his spirit to his job as a presentation I have a deficiency spirit that was is because he has not made available however it had not taken advantage of these opportunities today yesterday and tomorrow and when that is now in great measure I won't have any spiritual mind and so the lightning rain and wind the writing reason the following are they doing right and deftly they ripen living as an him I received forgiveness of sins absolutely but though you might try to reach Ms. of the plan I have to cooperate and that our emphasis one is about how this cooperation analysis on the fact that without the early rain were not receive a Christ declares that the divine influence of the Spirit was to be with his followers unto the end but my son this promise is not appreciated as it should be his fulfillment is not realized as it might be learning countless eloquence every natural or acquired endowment may be possessed but without the presence of the Spirit of God no heart will be no center Mister Christ when his disciples are connected with Christ when the gifts of the Spirit are the heirs even the poorest and most ignorant of them will have power that withheld upon hearts God makes them the channel is now working of the highest influence in the universe is not that God is one that he has raised and this is another man and he has very little yet he will do is this a just are not in it we don't have the Spirit even as he is a you just want to trust to excuse ourselves as there is no notice him was after the disciples had gone into perfect unity when they were no longer striving for the highest place that the Spirit was poured out they were of want all differences that had been put away and the testimony born of them after the spirit had been given is the same market word the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and one soul acts four thirty two the Spirit of him who died for sinners my layout animated the entire congregation of believers the disciples did not ask for blessings for themselves they were wasted for the burden of soul when we just read what I'm asking for that or not the spirit that you are not asking myself on asking with this picture the reason why this is I have no a is is is I cannot help father for the sake of the dear people please give me the power of his office that was the spirit that animated the prayers that we just read about this massive house to rent there also that there was a work of coming into your home and community is a complex the you know you you half years Jesus is down many days it was it would have taken nearly that long of the unity they were seeking for was one a brief history we see that there was a unity of thought and spirit it kind of unity I don't mean that in him by them all agreeing on every detail of everything but it was the absence of a strife for supremacy for notoriety are an effort to win back was gone the inhibitions the spirit and their experience was removed let me know last forty five seconds summarize the most part of life from this last ten minutes we should be reading my own life size of a flattering to summarize if you we should be reading my own life has to say about the A really the reason that further processing was given was to help us to achieve this we were given the task by the spirit of Jesus we could be filled with the spirit of Jesus and since that's what it's for and that's what it is all and if we would go there we find just what summary is think over the last two quotes for half off because I don't have is organizing a very nice way to five pages long and I don't have a bro Mark and limitless for you one was lying do we not hunger and thirst for the gift of the Spirit since this is the means by which we are to receive power why do we not half as him for a brief surname you know there's no good answer for that but if our father in heaven I ask that you would fill us with your spirit I don't suppose that we have satisfied the conditions referred about this morning would like to begin by satisfying the first would like to ask that you will give us the latter reign in this time of the latter rain you would fill us with
