The Presence of the Holy Spirit

One may ask who is the Holy Spirit? He is the Spirit of truth. He’s God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Each operation has many functions.  The Holy Spirit is a person.  When we talk about the Holy Spirit, we are actually talking about God and His Son, Jesus Christ.  When Jesus ascended to Heaven He said He would not leave us comfortless, but He will send us another comforter or helper.  If you have been born again, (given your life to Jesus) the Holy Spirit now dwells on the inside of you. He will lead and guide you by His Spirit.  He will never leave you or forsake you; He’s with you all the time.  The Holy Spirit came to complete us.  Holy.Spirit.1.The Holy Spirit enables us to know the truth and to live the truth. The Holy Spirit will convict us of our sins. And when we allow our lives to be control by the Holy Spirit we will have the power to live a life that is pleasing to God. In creation He was called the breath of God or the wind of God.  The Holy Spirit is very sensitive and He will make us sensitive to the Word of God. The Holy Spirit will help us to do the Father’s Will for our lives if we listen and follow His leading.  Romans 8:10-11 says And if Christ is in you your body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of Him that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He that raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit that dwells in you.  Romans 8:14 says for as many as are led by the Spirit of God they are the sons of God.  John 16:13 says Howbeit when He the Spirit of truth is come He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on his own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak and He will tell you things to come. The very presence of God Spirit lives on the inside of every born again believer and He is called the Holy Spirit. He is a person not an “it” He is more than just a mere influence He is the infinite God residing within our hearts.  According to 2nd Corinthians 4:7 (World Wide English version) it reads, this is something of great value within us, but we are like pots made of earth and clay.  This power is greater than any other power but it comes from God not from us. The Holy Spirit reveals Jesus to us according to John 16:13-14. The Holy Spirit is a Comforter, Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, and Standby (John 16:7). Paul said in 1st Corinthians 2:4-5… And my speech and preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power. It is that power of the Holy Spirit that’s working on the inside of you that Paul is speaking of here. When you give the Holy Spirit free course to move in your life it is not about your ability (what you can do) or your intellect (how much you know) it is about being led by the Spirit of God. Romans 8:14 states, for as many are led by the Spirit of God they are the sons of God.  In order to be led by the Spirit of God you must know God.  And that come by way of spending time in the presence of God. Developing an intimacy relationship with Him through the Word of God, Prayer, Praise, Worship, and Thanksgiving. The Holy Spirit is a Teacher. 1 John 2:27 states, But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you, but as the same anointing teacheth you all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you ye shall abide in him. Holy.Spirit.2The Holy Spirit is so much more. However, the reason why many believers of God do not experience the power of the Spirit though He actually dwells in their hearts is that they lack reverence.  We must trust the Holy Spirit the same way we trust Jesus the Son and God the Father. Because it is God’s desire for each believer to be filled with His Spirit to the fullness.  The plans God has for your life can only be revealed through the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 2: 9-11). God has prepared things for you before the foundation of the world. And the Holy Spirit knows God’s plan for your life. Only through a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit will you discover all God has prepared for your life. No one knows the things that God has already prepared for those that love Him. It’s very vital for you to get to know the Holy Spirit for yourself. We thank God for your Pastor and those in leadership positions but your pastor cannot be replaced for the Holy Spirit.  Spending personal time in His presence will grant you access to the Holy Spirit. You’ll be more in tune to hear His voice and follow His leading when you’re not sure about some things.  Also, you must be careful not to grieve the Holy Spirit. For example, the Holy Spirit is grieved when He shows up to bless you or impart to you but He finds blessing blockers in your life. Such as un-forgiveness, strife, pride, fornication and so forth. These things are blessing blockers and will grieve the Holy Spirit. Without the Holy Spirit you are living another life. Without the Holy Spirit you are busy doing things you were not born to do. Without the Holy Spirit you are misusing time, talents, and gifts. The secrets about you is in the Holy Spirit. Only the Spirit can reveal the secrets about you. The Holy Spirit will reveal the revelation about you and who you were created to be. The Holy Spirit will tell you the truth about you even when you don’t won’t to hear the truth. In the Presence of the Holy Spirit you’ll find peace, joy, and happiness. I encourage you to get to know the Holy Spirit for He will be your best friend for life!

Why Win Souls?

It started with Adam and ended with Jesus. Romans 5:12(AMP) says, “Therefore, as sin came into the world through one man, and death as the result of sin, so death spread to all men, [no one being able to stop it or escape it’s power] because all men sinned”. Adam’s sin separated us from God in the beginning. “For just as by one man’s disobedience, (failing to hear, heedlessness, and carelessness), the many were constituted sinners, so by one Man’s obedience the many will be constituted righteous, (made acceptable to God, brought into right standing with Him)” (Romans 5:19 AMP). We were helpless in getting back in fellowship with God, so Christ came at the right time for the ungodly (Romans 5:6). God showed His love towards us while we were still sinners Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). Go ye.png

God’s purpose is to bring man back into fellowship with Himself. James 5:20 states “let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins”.

God has given the believer the ability to be an effective soul winner through:

  1. The Holy Spirit, which gives us the power to be, witnesses. (Acts 1:8)
  2. The Name of Jesus, which gives us the authority. (Philippians 2:9-11; Matthew 28:18-20).
  3. The Word, which gives us the knowledge.

We are a part of changing people’s eternal destiny (2 Corinthians 5:18, 19). The harvest of souls is great and the laborers are few, so we must pray for more laborers (Matthew 9:37, 38).

Therefore, we cannot allow anything to hinder us from winning souls even our negative thinking. Let God use you to change nations for the Glory of God!

YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN

There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born [a]again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter    the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” John 3:1-18 TO BE BORN AGAIN YOU MUST COME THROUGH JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF! John 14:6  6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. Romans 10:9-10  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead,attention thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:13  13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Know that your mommy can’t save you. Your daddy can’t save you. Your friends can’t save you. You got to give your life to the Lord today. He’s the only way. He’s the only one that can help you. He’s the only one that can deliver you. Jesus is the “only” way to the Father. There’s no other way. He can do it for you if you trust Him. If you believe Him. If you confess Him. If you give your life to the Lord today. He’ll walk with you. He’ll talk with you. Give your life to the Lord today. And when you give your life to the Lord. You don’t have to be in fear. You don’t have to be in fear of anyone hurting you. You don’t have to fear anyone abusing or misusing you. When you give your life to the Lord He will help you. He will remove the fear. He will remove the doubt. He will remove the hurt, the pain, the disappointments, and so forth. He wants you to be sold out to Him. He wants you to walk in Holiness. He wants the best for your life. He wants you to lay it all down at the Altar and surrender all to Him so He can help you. He wants every spirit of Heaviness to be stripped off of you. Let go of the disappointments. Let go of the pain. Let go of the Hurt. Let it go and lay it down at the Altar so He can refine you to be meet for the Master Use. When you’re going through different things, trials, and situations in your life and you don’t know what to do or what to say. That’s when you got to get desperate and cry out to God. You got to be desperate! You got to say SAVE ME JESUS! Save me Lord! Desperate faith says, I’m tired of this devil messing with my mind. I’m tired of this devil trying to destroy my family. I’m tired of this devil trying to destroy my marriage, my children. I’m tired. I don’t know what to do, what to say, which way to go, I don’t know what’s going on in my life. Save me Lord Jesus! I’ve tried to do it on my own and I just can’t do it. I’ve tried to do it my way but my way isn’t work. I’ve tried the rest now I’m ready to try to best! Save me Lord Jesus. Here I am Lord. I give my life to you. You got to cry out just like Blind Bartimaeus. He said Son of David. Have mercy on me. They tried to tell him to be quiet. He got even louder and cried out even the more. Son of David have mercy on me. And in Mark chapter 10, Jesus said go your way your faith has made you whole. In Luke 8: 43-48, there was a woman who had an issue of blood for 12 long years. And she pressed her way through the crowd and said if I can just touched the “Hem” of His garment I know I will be made whole. How many you need a touched from the Lord.  Surrender all to Him. Better yet, learn the faith of the Canaanite woman in Matthew 15. She cried out saying have mercy on me O Lord, Son of David. My daughter is severely demon possessed. Jesus said, it’s not good to take the children bread and give it to the dogs. And the woman said Jesus, Son of David, even the little dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master table. (Paraphrase) She said, I know you was sent to the children of Israel, and I know you’re the Son of God but you got something we need. We need you Lord. These demons are tormenting my daughter and YOU GOT THE POWER! And Jesus said, O Woman! O Woman! GREAT I YOUR FAITH! GREAT IS YOUR FAITH.  Let it be to you as you desire! And her daughter was healed that very hour. YOU GOT TO PRESS IN ON JESUS AND GIVE IT ALL TO THE LORD. LAY IT ALL DOWN! LET HIM SAVE YOUR LIFE TODAY! GIVE YOUR LIFE TO THE LORD! YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN! Deuteronomy 30:19 He said 19 This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live. This day you must choose. This is the season. This is the time. Jesus is coming back and you don’t won’t to be outside the Ark of the Covenant when He return. And you must choose what side you’re going to be on.

  1. The Lord side or the devil side
  2. Righteousness or UN-righteousness
  3. Holiness or UN-holy.
  4. Darkness or Light.

Choose whom this day you will serve. He is the Savior of the World. He is the light of the World. When God said let there be Light (who is God); and Light (who is God) became. And He who is the “Light” saturated Himself all over the World because He is the Light of the world and the darkness comprehend it not! This world can’t function without God. YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN! And when you get born again. You have to work out your own Salvation. Meaning you got to get in the Word of God every day. You have to study the Word of God every day. You have to fast and pray. You have to watch and pray. You have to work out your own salvation. God is not going to make you read the word of God. He’s not going to make you pray. He’s not going to do it.  You are a free moral agent. You Choose.  You got to pick up your bible and read it so you’ll know what God is saying to you. But this is what happen many times. We get save and we leave it at that thinking we can live in this world and this devil not whoop our tail. The enemy will rip you a part if you don’t know who you are. And the only way you can know who you are is by spending time in the Presence of the Lord. Read your Bible, Pray, Fast, lay in His Presence and fellowship with Him. Stay in the Word of God until you become the living Word that can be read by any man. It’s your manual of instructions. You got to eat it, chew it, swallow it, and digest it.

Prayer of Salvation: Say Lord, here I am, standing in the need of Salvation. Take me as your own. I need you. My life is nothing without you. I can’t make it without you Lord. I cry out to you right now. I repent of my sins. I asked that you forgive me. According to Romans 10:9-10 I believe in my heart and confess with my mouth that you raised Jesus from the dead and He is the son of the Living God. And in Romans 10:13 you said whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. I thank you Lord for saving me and accepting me as your beloved child. In Jesus name! Amen!

What should we know about Outreach International Foundation Ministry and Tamike Brown Ministries? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
And what set me apart from others. My heart burns for the things of God. My heart burns to help God’s people by reaching out to bring them into the Kingdom of God using whatever method possible the Lord will allow me to use as I’m led by the Holy Spirit. And one of the things the Lord told me is to preach out of passion for the souls. Preach as though I see the people coming into the Kingdom of God. So sometimes, when I’m preaching or teaching so hard I’m preaching and teaching out of love and compassion for the souls! It’s rooted!

Living by Faith in God

Unbelief can be one of the greatest enemies to our faith. As a matter of fact, in the book of Hebrews 3:12 The Word of God calls it an evil heart to be in unbelief. In Matthew 17: 15-20, here’s a story where a man who came to Jesus to cast out several demons out of his son and he told Jesus I brought him to your disciples but they couldn’t do anything.  Here, you got people walking with Jesus every day, witnesses the mighty miracles He performed, but yet, they didn’t tap into that Anointing because they were faithless and in unbelief. So Jesus called them a faithless and perverse generation. They were without faith and twisted the truth of God’s Word.  Jesus ask His disciples how long shall I be with you before you grow up and believe in me. God can only work to the degree that you believe.  So if you don’t believe, it may not be possible for you, but if “Tamike” believe it’s possible for her.  God is no respecter of person however; He is a respecter of your faith. The Word of God will work for anybody that will put it to work. The Just Shall Live by Faith 4Believing is our job and the doing is God’s job. Because of the fall of Adam man has been trying to do all the work, but once you come into the Kingdom of God we have been redeemed and the Word of God does all the work when you work the Word.  Living by faith is not an option for the Believer it is a way of life. God’s Word is the governing force of His Kingdom, and this Kingdom operates by faith. Faith is your currency transaction for Heaven blessings. Jesus was a preacher, teacher, and healer. He was a man always on the move to do God’s Will for His life.  He went everywhere healing all manner of sickness and diseases throughout all the regions, countries, cities, and villages performing mighty miracles. However, when He got to His hometown He could not do any mighty works there. Although, He wanted to and He was able to but He couldn’t because of the people unbelief. He was only able to heal a few sick people but no mighty works. Instead of believing Him they begin to examine Him and question Him (Matthew 13:55) so He couldn’t do any mighty works among the people in His hometown. God can only move according to your Faith in Him to believe.  So don’t allow unbelief keep you from receiving God’s best for your life. You have to stretch your faith pass the norm. Stretch your faith pass what the natural eye can see. He loves you and wants the best for you and I. Put your faith to work so God can use you on a greater level to reach multitudes of souls for the Kingdom of God. The Just shall live by faith.

Free From the Spirit of Fear

So many people are surround by fear. Fear from family members, friends, love ones, the church, fear of failing, fear the future, and so forth. Fear will cause you to become a slave to anxiety and pressure. Fear will leave you when you know who you are in Christ Jesus. When you know that you are a child of the Most High God; you will be free and loose from everything that has kept you bind. Being in bondage to fear will cause you to miss out God’s best for your life. It’s will hinder the Will of God for your life. When you live in fear you’ll never step out to do nothing for God because you fear failure. You fear your critics. You fear the nay-sayers, and so forth. But when you get in the Word of God and know who you are in Christ Jesus fear has to leave your life.  You will begin to discover that you can do all things through Christ that strengthen you. You begin to see that you’re more than a conquer. You begin to see that greater is He that is in me than He that is in the World.  You’ll begin to know and understand that God has not given you the Spirit of fear but of power, love, and a sound mind.  fearless

Fear, worrying, anxiety are tormenting spirits from the devil. The devil is afraid. He’s tormented and he wants to torment you. The devil is trying to create his mindset in you. Take for an example in the book of Exodus; the reason Pharaoh didn’t won’t to let the Israelites go because he became afraid as to who they would become. In reality he was really fearful of God’s Children and their power. He knew they were skillful and knowledgeable in all things. And because he was tormented; in return he tormented the Israelite children.  But God had to show Pharaoh that He is God and he had to let God’s people go. When you don’t know who you are in Christ Jesus you will be controlled by anyone and anything. It’s called a controlling and dominating spirit.  It’s not leadership it’s controlling-ship to keep you bound to the snare of the enemy. The ultimately goal of God freeing His people from slavery so they can be free to serve Him.  They don’t have to walk in fear.  He wanted to show them that He was their Father.  He wanted to give them the best. He wanted to bring them to a land flowing with milk and honey.  He love them so much until He was willing to do whatever He needed to do to set them free.  He fought for His children so you and I can be free.  That’s exactly what a father does right? He fight for His children. When you bombard your mind with the Word of God His Word becomes truth in your life and every lie the devil said about you have to leave. Staying in the Presence of God and in His Word the devil becomes totally dysfunctional in your life.  He becomes defeated. He’s utterly destroyed.  The same tricks he has always thrown at you will never work again because you’re so rooted and grounded in the Word of God. The Word of God will transform your mind. God loves you more than you’ll ever know and He wants the best for you.  And anything that’s not like God is a lie from the pit of hell. Fear is a bondage and you can be free from condemnation, shame, and guilty. Let it go so you can be free to do God’s Will. It’s about your identity in Christ and right standing with Him. When you know what God says about you people are no longer your problem anymore. Because you know who you are in Christ Jesus. You have to start seeing things as God sees it. And believe what God says about you. You don’t have to worry and you don’t have to fret when you know who you are in Christ Jesus. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty (2 Corinthians 3:17). If God’s Spirit is not there it’s bondage.  God’s love for you is not based on people opinion of you. The enemy wants to bury you with fear and lies to make you think you are a nobody and you’ll never mount up to nothing. He wants you to think you’ll never walk out God Will for your life.  The devil is a lie and the father of lies. When you know the truth as to who you are in Christ Jesus it will set you free. (John 8:32).  The devil can’t take that away from you when you know in your knower.  Intensify your relationship with the Father so you can be free. He wants you to be free to serve Him. Regardless of what they may have said about you or think about you don’t allow it to cause you to walk in fear.  You are who the Word of God says you are. fear.notPeople can’t label you when you already been label by God. You been stamped and approved by God. So whatever the devil says about you is a lie.  Receive the Love of God and stop looking for love in all the wrong places. Let go of the fear and crossover. Just say, Father forgive them because they know not what they do.  You pray for them that God will begin to open their spiritual eyes so they can see who they are in Christ Jesus too. The truth of God’s Word will change your life forever. When you know what the Word of God says about you your life won’t be a temporary fix.  You become eternal life in Him. Whatever you fear will come upon you.  When you fear you give the devil access into your life.  When you believe the Word of God you give God access into your life. When you know and believe the truth of God’s Word it will set you free. Worrying all the time, depress, stress and so forth is nothing more than Fear.  And fear is design to paralyze you. It will paralyze your ministry. It will paralyze your marriage, your household, and it will paralyze the Will of God for your life. Don’t let the life of your past determine your future in God. Don’t allow your past failures and sins to hinder you and cause you to walk in fear. Take it as a learning stone and keep moving forward. If you repented and ask God to forgive you.  He has already forgiven you. Now you have to forgive yourself. And if the devil tries to throw a punch at you by bringing up your past again, throw a punch back with the Word of God. Let him know he’s so focused on your past until he can’t even see your future. He may try to throw everything at you to stop you, but he’ll never be able stop or knock you down because the Word of God wins every time.  Start seeing yourself as God sees you. Aim to please God and don’t look to get Praise from man. Because if you look to get Praise from man you set yourself up to be criticize by man. Free yourself from the spirit of bondage and release yourself to the Spirit of the Almighty God.
