Acts 4:13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
PETER WAS A REAL IDIOT He had a free & fearless confidence He had an uninhibited and unreserved manner He caused even the religious elite to marvel He lived his life in such a manner that people knew he had been with Jesus He had a free & fearless confidence He had an uninhibited and unreserved manner He caused even the religious elite to marvel He lived his life in such a manner that people knew he had been with Jesus
How Did He Get To Real Idiot Status?
1. He Got Up He did this by himself (IT WAS HIS CHOICE)
2. He Stood Up He did this with believers (IT WAS HIS COMMUNITY)
3. He Spoke Up He did this before unbelievers (IT WAS HIS COMMISSION)
4. He Gave Up He did this for others (IT WAS JESUS COMMAND)
You can have all this, and still not have the REAL IDIOT thing happening…
YOU MUST HAVE THE FIRE!
Without the FIRE, you are just a FALSE ALARM!
5. He Was Filled Up He was filled with FIRE! (IT WAS FROM THE COMFORTER)
5. He Was Filled Up Matthew 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
5. He Was Filled Up John 14: And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
5. He Was Filled Up John 14: Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
5. He Was Filled Up John 14: I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
5. He Was Filled Up Acts 1:8 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.
5. He Was Filled Up Acts 4:8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,
You can have the alarm going off all day, but if you dont have the fire, then you aint ON FIRE!
A lot of church people today think that they are On Fire, but they are not! Its just a bunch of Bells & Whistles! A lot of church people today think that they are On Fire, but they are not! Its just a bunch of Bells & Whistles!
I Call It…
Lets Look At A Couple Of 3-Alarm Fires That Peter Was Called Out On
Acts 5: But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, 2 And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet.
Acts 5: But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? 4 Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.
Acts 5: And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things. 6 And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him.
Acts 5: And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in. 8 And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much.
Acts 5: Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out.
Acts 5: Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband. 11 And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things.
PRIDE SAYS: Look At Me!
Being full of yourself is not the same as being full of the Fire of the Holy Spirit!
Possession IT USUALLY INVOLVES SOMETHING YOU HAVE OR SOMETHING YOU DO
Part THERE IS USUALLY AN APPEARANCE OF GIVING IT ALL YOU GOT
Privacy IT REQUIRES YOU TO KEEP CERTAIN THINGS ABOUT YOURSELF A SECRET
Production IT REQUIRES A LOT OF ACTING AND PUTTING ON A SHOW
Nobody Produces Phony Fire But You!
The Greater Sin Of Phony Fire Is NOT The Fooling Others, It Is The Lying To The Holy Spirit Of The Living God!
Phony Fire Matters A Whole Lot More To God Than It Will To Other Folks
But We Make The Grave Mistake Of Focusing More On What Others Think, Rather Than On What God Thinks
POWER SAYS: Listen To Me!
Acts 8: Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:
Acts 8: Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: 16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)
Acts 8: Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.
Acts 8: And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,
Acts 8: Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.
Acts 8: But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.
Acts 8: Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.
Acts 8: Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.
Acts 8: For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.
Acts 8: Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the LORD for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me.
The Power Of The Holy Spirit Cannot Be Purchased With Money!
It cannot be obtained by being clever or by using trickery!
It Does Not Come By Getting Into An Emotional State Or Frenzy!
The Power Of The Holy Spirit Will Never Be At Work In The Heart Of Someone Who Is Not Right With God… NEVER!
Repent Of Wickedness Pray to God for forgiveness Realize it is Gods decision to give power, not yours Be terrified about exercising your own power, and serving in your own strength Repent Of Wickedness Pray to God for forgiveness Realize it is Gods decision to give power, not yours Be terrified about exercising your own power, and serving in your own strength
Being REAL Doesnt Say Look At Me Or Listen To Me
It Says: It Aint About Me!
Look to Jesus! Listen to Jesus! Its all about Jesus! Look to Jesus! Listen to Jesus! Its all about Jesus! BEING REAL SAYS…
