How to Lead People into the Baptism of the Holy Spirit - Evangelism Toolbox



Jesus was born of the Spirit in the womb of Mary.  He never needed to be born again by the Holy Spirit as we do.  But Jesus needed to be baptized in the Holy Spirit for ministry empowerment.  John wrote of Jesus baptism, "I saw the Holy Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and remaining UPON Him."  (1:32)  This UPON Holy Spirit is the baptism we all need to be empowered for life and ministry.  Then John said, "Upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit". (1:33)  For us His people the church, this initial baptism or the "baptism of the Holy Spirit in fire and power" happened on Pentecost. Jesus had already given the Holy Spirit to the disciples in John 20:21.  So Jesus said to them again, "Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you."  And when He has said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit." (John 20:21-22)  So Pentecost does not represent the initial giving of the Holy Spirit but the "baptism of the Holy Spirit". You need this "baptism of the Holy Spirit" to witness with power and move in the supernatural gifts like healing, word of knowledge, word of wisdom and other signs Paul talks about in I Corinthians 12. Luke wrote in the book of Acts 1:8 "You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." Remember you are indwelt with the Holy Spirit at the time of your salvation.  This indwelling Holy Spirit, however, is not the second work of the Holy Spirit...empowerment.

Here are the principles:
1. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is received by faith just like your salvation.  You simply "believe and receive".  

2. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is released by confession with your tongue and mouth. You can pray something like, "I believe Lord Jesus, that you want to empower me for ministry by giving me Your power of the Holy Spirit.  I now receive by faith this wonderful gift you promised me.  Take my life completely and I ask the Holy Spirit to come upon me and anoint me with your fire. Loose my tongue to speak praises unto your name." 

3. The early church and today's church often evidences this baptism with the supernatural gift of tongues.  Most people have the freedom to began speaking in tongues immediately following their baptism in the Spirit.  Acts 2:2-4 says, "And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and sat upon each of them.  And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance."

4. If you are leading someone into the baptism of the Holy Spirit, you want to encourage them to begin speaking in tongues and worshipping God by speaking in tongues with them. It often gives them courage to release there own gift from Jesus.

5. God often transfers giftings through the laying on of hands.  I have taught Christian workers to lay hands on those receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

6. The gift of tongues has often been different languages of the world.  We have witnessed people speaking in a language they have never learned with others in the room knowing that language.  The interpretation is always one of exalting Jesus and praising God.

I cannot over emphasize the importance of being "Holy Spirit" empowered for ministry.  The gifts of the Spirit are always given for effective witness.  Jesus used the "word of knolwedge" with the woman at the well.  He used the "gifts of healings" to bring people into the kingdom. Remember Jesus never performed any miracles until He was empowered by the Holy Spirit at His baptism.  He is our example for all ministry.

How to heal the sick - Evangelism Toolbox

Sickness in people's lives comes from a variety of sources.  Violating simple health rules by improper diet can cause disease. Sickness can come from generational curses and many people inherit their diseases of their parents and grandparents. Sickness can also come from "spirits of infirmity" sent by Satan to disrupt our lives and take away our peace.  The bible says, "Jesus healed them from many diseases..and cast out many demons"  If you know how to pray for sick people you can find a wonderful answer to their desire to be well.  In over 50 years of ministry and years of street ministry in San Francisco, Seattle and Tampa, I found that I moved into an effective method of healing that really saw results.  I have seen totally blind people healed.  Many of my friends remember the girl deaf from birth that was healed here in Tampa at our outreach.  I want to share this simple approach God has shown me as to how to pray for the sick.

1. Healing operates in an atmosphere of "Faith" "Jesus seeing their faith said to the man, rise and be healed, your sins are forgiven you."  I always ask people before I pray for them, "Do you believe Jesus can heal you right now?"  Jesus practiced this same principle with blind Bartemaeus.  Jesus said, "What would you have me to do?"  It was evident that he was blind, but Jesus was releasing this man's faith.  "O, that I might receive my sight.."  was Bartemaeus's answer.

2. Healing happens through their declaration of faith.  I always have the sick person participate in their healing.  I ask them first if they have faith for it and if they do, second I ask them to declare that faith.. have them repeat....."I receive my healing NOW in Jesus name... I AM HEALED!"  Remember the power of life and death is in our tongues!
Speaking over that sickness in Jesus name has awesome power over disease. I believe we should also follow the biblical pattern of anointing with oil and laying on of hands.

Notes:  Not all healing manifests immediately.  Jesus prayed for a blind man and he didn't receive his full healing.  He saw men walking as trees...ie. could not see clearly. But continued declaration and obedience of this man's faith brought him to total healing. If people don't see an immediate manifestation, don't let them be discouraged... just continue to confess and believe.  God keeps His word. 

3.  God can also use doctors and natural means for healing like changing your diet, or discontinuing certain habits like smoking, drugs, etc.  So don't discount a variety of ways God can heal people. But I love to see the miraculous hand of God through immediate supernatural touches of God's love in "signs and wonders".  So join with me and have courage and pray for the sick to be healed!

How To Cast out Demons... Evangelism Toolbox


Almost 1/3 of Jesus ministry was casting out demons.  Jesus gave this same authority to His original disciples and then to us. Mark 16:16-17 Jesus said, "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature...and these signs shall follow them that believe, in my name they shall cast out demons."  Jesus clearly gives us His authority. Having ministered for over 50 years and bringing many to freedom from demon control, I want to share some very simple tools that really work. Casting out demons can become somewhat a strange ministry with some people.  They make way more of it than God intended. Many people are also afraid to perform this ministry because it seems beyond them.  I strongly suggest you can do this.  I always surround myself and my family with the covering of the blood of Jesus and make sure my personal life is tuned to God's love and control.  If you follow these simple principles you will find it absolutely simple to do and effective: 

Principle #1 - Demons operate only by their legal authority given to them by taking territory.  First, they are territorial!  Eph. 4:27 says, "Nor give place to the devil." 
Remember, demons cannot operate in this natural world without a body or place to operate. They also know they are operating illegally.... so take authority!

Principle #2 - Demons operate by permission.  Someone at sometime in their life have given demons permission to operate because of disobedience to God's word and commands. Also participation in the occult, witchcraft and other demonic activities can bring demon control. Practicing habitual sins with unrepentance can also give permission to demons to indwell our bodies, souls or minds.  Demons simply observe our lives and enter when they witness a heart of unrepentance and rebellion.  Also remember your "spirit man" can never be touched by demons.  (see post spirit, soul and body)

So How do you cast out demons?  Simple....
1. Take away their territory by bringing our bodies, souls and minds under the absolute ruler ship and blood of Christ through genuine repentance and confession.  Demons know their legal rights over you and know when they lose them.  Repentance LEGALLY closes the door to demons.  Have the person pray this prayer... "Father, I confess and turn away from this sin, I yeild my body totally to your authority and control.  I break every tie that I have had with demonic control in the name of Jesus."

2. Take away their permission by commands!  Jesus never played mental games with demons, but simply commanded them to leave.  Declare in Jesus name... "I command every demon to come out of this person.  You have no legal right to remain.  This person is now under the ruler ship and authority of Jesus Christ.  The blood of Jesus against you demons!  In Jesus mighty name be gone!"

       NOW BEGAN TO PRAISE GOD FOR YOUR NEW LIBERTY AND FREEDOM!
                                               CASTING OUT DEMONS - TOOLBOX
                                                                       

True Discipleship - What is a true disciple?


True disciples are believers that have learned to "walk in the Spirit"The key to spiritual growth and true discipleship is a full understanding of spirit, soul and body.  If you don't see this truth you will not experience the kind of spiritual growth you want. You must learn to not trust your mind, will and soul, but trust your "spirit man". The bible calls it "walking in the Spirit". Your "spirit man" trusts God's word alone and not what you think or feel. Your mind, soul and body will always lead you into deception.  Satan and demons operate only in the areas of mind, soul and body.  (read Genesis 3:6 - Eve used 3 of the five senses)  To learn how to get free from demonic influence, see the post below.."How to cast out demons"  Demons in Christians can only operate in the mind, soul and body..not the "spirit man". Your "spirit man" is protected by the presence of God.

 What are the principles?  
1. The only thing that gets saved is our spirit.  "That which born of the Spirit is spirit and that which is born of the flesh is flesh". Our mind, soul and body do not get saved or born again when we receive Christ.  We still have the same old lusts, habits and mindsets. 

2. Our spirit man comes to life the moment you receive Christ and your spirit man is delcared complete in Christ, holy, acceptable and perfect in His presence (read all of Eph. chapter 1). God has now placed in your spirit man everything you will ever need to be fully conformed to the image of Christ.  Your spirit man is now perfectly complete and completely holy. 

3. You must learn to "Walk in the Spirit" and not in the flesh.  Now your spirit man, empowered by the Holy Spirit, begins to SANCTIFY your body, soul and mind through daily renewal of your mind, submitting your body and conforming to His will. (read Romans 12:1 - 2).  This is a lifelong process as you grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ daily.  It is a slow, but powerful, transformation. (Read II Corinthains 3:18)   Remember your soul is your mind, emotions, will, imagination & conscience.  Your body is your five senses...sight, hearing, feeling, touching & tasting.  

Please watch this powerful teaching for more details on how to become a true disciple through this revelation of spirit, soul and body.

Can You Raise The Dead? You Might Be Surprised!

Having traveled overseas to foreign mission fields these last years, I noticed a distinct difference in operational faith between nationals who live on the edge of life and those of us in America enjoying our comfort zones. These simple nationals who totally depend on God daily for everything, also have operational faith at a high level.  Here where we can drop by a local medical clinic and most of us are within a short distance of emergency medical care. Not so in 3rd world countries.  There they may easily die for lack of care.  But that releases a whole new exercise.  RAISING THE DEAD!  At a large crusade I held north of Mumbai in an area called Navapur, India I met an unknown pastor, short in stature, but big in faith.  He has raised 10 people from the dead, and six days before we arrived he had raised a lady who had been dead for sometime.  She was brought to his village in a wheel barrow.  After prayer and commanding faith, she came back to life.  He accompanied her with her family back to her village and the whole Muslim village turned to Christ.  I asked him, through an interpreter, what affect has raising the dead had in his ministry?  He said he has baptized over 22,000 Muslims.  Entire villages have turned to Christ because of demonstrated miracles, signs and wonders. We in America are comfortable to not put such demanding faith into action. Remember Jesus said, "If you believe, the works that I do, you shall do also, and greater works than these shall you do because I go to my Father."  John 14:12 Perhaps we are afraid it will not work and we might appear embarrased.  We might even think it could weaken our faith if it does not happen.  It is our fears that keep us from stepping out of the boat.  Not so around the world.  We will see more signs and wonders, even in America, among those that are willing to exercise God's transmitted authority on earth. Remember, you have authority if you are under Jesus authority.  It is not our works, but His work through us by faith.

You Can Raise the Dead.. You Might Be Surprised!

Key To Faith is "Receiving"

There is a lot of talk about faith these days. We are told you must believe. I say, "You must receive"!  John wrote, "I am not that light, but have come to bear witness to that light (Jesus)....  That light has appeared unto all men, but as many as receive Him, to them God gives the right to become the children of God."  John 1:12  Amazingly the light of God's presence can be all around you, but you may not even understand it or know it.  The atmosphere of faith can help you come to God, but an open heart to God must accompany knowing what God has said.  The religious leaders of Jesus day witnessed miracles, the resurrection of Lazareth, and healing of blind men, healing people with leprosy, setting the demon possessed free, and many other miracles. Yet they hardened their hearts!  Their religious mindsets kept them from receiving.  It really is a matter of the heart.  Seeking hearts find.  Resisting hearts loose.  Open hearts see.  Closed hearts are blind. Little wonder Solomon of old in his wisdom said, "Protect your heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life."  Proverbs 4:23  What can we do to sharpen our spiritual "receptors".  It's like tuning your radio into a clear station.  If it is just off a little from the proper frequency, you get a lot of static!  Our lives can have a lot of static. To remove that static you can do the following:  

1. Ask God to open your heart where there have been dissappointments, failures, fears.
2. Have others talk with you and help guide you to greater faith.  They can tell about their
    own journey through unbelief to real faith.
3. Music is a softner of the heart.  Certain worship songs and sounds tune us to the
    frequency of heaven.
4. Walk in forgiveness toward yourself and others.  Nothing will choke off faith like bitterness
    and unforgiveness.
5. Read the bible.  It has intrensic power and is life giving.  Just reading it can bring opennes
    to God's voice.

I have included with this post, a short section of my teaching on the book of John.  This 10 minute teaching will help guide you to the importance of not just believing, but "receiving".

                                             POWER OF RECEIVING BY FAITH

Jesus Is The Light

The book of John makes some remarkable statements.  This books gives us revelation on our relationship with the Father and Jesus himself.  John says, "I am not that light, but I have come to bear witness to that light (Jesus Christ), and that light has appeared to all men.  But as many as receive Him, to them God gives the power to become the sons of God."  John chapter 1.  The key to faith and life is "receiving".  Jesus struggled all through this book to get the religious leaders to "receive".  Yet they continually rejected God's revelation.  It was the broken, hurting, hungry, sick and demon possessed that received.  It was those that Jesus called "poor in spirit" and opened their hearts. It is still the same today. Those who are self reliant and proud have no time for Christ.  Their world is filled with themselves and their religious bias and vain philosophy.  Jesus declared, "Come unto me all that are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest."  This short introduction of the book of John is just a piece of the total message you can receive through our Kingdom Life University.  You are invited to consider registering for our school and receiving your training and teaching for "life and ministry".  All of us are in full time ministry if we are a Christian.  Even though we may work a "secular" job, just living our life for Christ in this world puts us in some kind of powerful ministry.  Kingdom Life University is designed to bring the knowledge of Christ into your daily life.  Practical, powerful truth sets you free to find and follow Jesus.

God legally destroyed DEATH!

1. Death's Power.  The first promise God gave to man was a promise of death.  Genesis 2:15 "Then the Lord took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it.  And the Lord God commanded the man saying, 'of every tree in the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die".  Unusual as it may seem God gave a word, a promise to Adam that death would surely follow disobedience. But when God created death IT HAD NO POWER.  Adam would have never tasted death if he would have just obeyed God's word.  Death was created by God without power.  The only thing that could enforce it's power would be if Adam ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Adam did eat and God was obligated to justly keep His word.  God cannot deny Himself. He exalts His word above His name!  He is faithful to Himself and always keeps His word.  So Adam died...that day that he ate along with Eve.  That death was separation from God's presence even though Adam physically lived over 900 years.  But that death was from the daily fellowship of the Father walking with His created man and women in the garden. Death is separation. Spiritual death is man's separation from God's presence.  Physical death is the separation of man's spirit and soul from his body. Adam's sin empowered death's sentence... justice prevailed.

2. Death's Provision.  Leviticus says, "Without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sin."  The only way to removed sin's power was through the shedding of blood... or death itself.  "And the Word (Jesus ) was made flesh."  John 1:14  Jesus had to become flesh to legally removed death's power!   Romans 5:21 "So that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Jesus must bear in His own body the full payment of all mankind's sin and sickness.  When Jesus cried out on the cross, "It is finished", He was declaring that the full legal payment was now made in His body of flesh through the shedding of His blood... sin's power was broken... so death's power was again powerless.  Jesus obedience removed sin's penalty and the power of death was broken. What the first Adam lost, the last Adam reclaimed!  Now we can live our "Eternal life" even before we pass from this earth... Oh the grace of God!  Jesus said, "He that hath the Son, hath eternal life abiding in him already." Are you afraid of death? Then you still under it's sting!  Get set free through the liberty that Christ brings.  receive Him today and believe that He is that eternal life you are looking for.

The power of death..how was it deactivated?
