It includes information on the baptism of the Holy Spirit and receiving the power of the Holy Spirit. Your faith will be encouraged as you read about the power of God as described in the Bible.
How to move in the power of the Holy Spirit
1. WALKING IN THE LIGHT:
1 John 1:5
“God is light in Him there is no darkness all.”
1 John 1:7
"But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus Christ His son cleanses us from all sin."
“For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
2. Sin list:
The Bible describes sin as follows:
1 Corinthians 6:9-10:
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived.
Neither fornicators (sex outside of marriage)
Nor idolaters (putting other things ahead of God)
Nor revilers (cursing other people)
Nor extortioners (taking other people’s money by threat)
will inherit the kingdom of God.”
Using bad language
Licentiousness (indecency) e.g. pornography
(Galatians 5:19, Ephesians 5:3-4)

Also those who are…
Cowardly (refusing to follow Christ)
3. Dying to self:
Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.”
4. Loving God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength:
“And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.”
5. WHO IS THE HOLY SPIRIT?
6. The Holy Spirit is God:
a) The Trinity is God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit.
b) To deny the Holy Spirit is to deny God.
"God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth".
7. The Holy Spirit is God because:
a) He is eternal.
b) All powerful (omnipotent).
c) All knowing.
d) All wise (omniscient).
e) Everywhere (omnipresent).
The power of the Holy Spirit is tremendously effective today because He is in all places and at all times.
"Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?"
8. The Holy Spirit created this world:
"The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light".
9. Our body is His Temple:
1 Corinthians 6:19-2
"Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?" For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's".
10. The Holy Spirit is Helper (Paraclete means called alongside):
"And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever".
11. The Holy Spirit is our Comforter:
"And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever - the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you".
12. The Holy Spirit is the Teacher:
"But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you".
13. The Holy Spirit Convicts:
"And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment of sin, because they do not believe in Me; of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged".
14. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth:
"However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has 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".
15. The Holy Spirit is the river of living water:
a) He is the river of living water:
"but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life".
16. The Holy Spirit is our Intercessor:
a) His mercy endures forever:
"Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God".
b) Through him we have access to the presence of God.
17. The Holy Spirit gives us power to witness:
"But 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".
18. Power to Heal:
And in Lystra a certain man without strength in his feet was sitting, a cripple from his mother’s womb, who had never walked. This man heard Paul speaking. Paul, observing him intently and seeing that he had faith to be healed, said with a loud voice, “Stand up straight on your feet!” And he leaped and walked.
19. He Gives Gifts:
1 Corinthians 12:7-11
"But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills."
20. BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
21. Receiving the power of the Holy Spirit:
Jesus said to His disciples after His resurrection “But 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.”
Result: Acts 2:1-4“When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 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 one 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.”
Result: A lame man walked when Peter prayed. (Acts 3:7).
The sick were healed when Peter’s shadow touched them. (Acts 5:15).
Baptism of the Holy Spirit is essential in order to operate in the power of God.
22. HEARING THE VOICE OF GOD:
“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has 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. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.”
“And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever.”
“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”
23. POWER OF GOD
I have set the LORD always before me; Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.
And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all.
And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.
in mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God, so that from Jerusalem and round about to Illyricum I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.
1 Corinthians 2:4-5
And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.
1 Corinthians 4:20
For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power.
The Immense power of God within us:
“…immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength, Which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places.”
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
1 Thessalonians 1:5
For our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit and in much assurance, as you know what kind of men we were among you for your sake.
24. The anointing:
The more we yield to God the greater the anointing.
1 John 2:20
“But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.”
1 John 2:27
“But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.”
26. By His stripes we are healed:
“Surely He has borne our pains And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.”
27. Keys to healing:
Idolatry (Putting other things ahead of God.)
Honouring our father and mother.
Knowing God's compassion
Our sin separates us from God.
“Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear.”
Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith. (Hebrews 12:2).
Jesus cursed the fig tree which withered from the roots. The disciples were amazed.
“So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.”
29. Reading the Word:
We should discipline ourselves to use a Bible reading plan that takes us through the Bible in a year.
30. God's Word is a creative force:
“God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;”
Any natural condition can be changed by the Word of God which is supernatural power. As we lay hold of God's promises and simple faith we become partakers of the divine nature. (2 Peter 1:4).
31. Proclaiming the Word:
We should proclaim the Word of God aloud daily. This will increase our faith and the closeness of our walk with God. At the end of this pamphlet you will find some very powerful scriptures which are very effective as they are proclaimed. Even if you speak out only a few each day you will find it increases your faith.
32. Prayer cloths:
“Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them.”
God puts power into objects e.g. rod of Moses (Exodus 4:3-4), rod of Aaron (Exodus 7:10), hair of Samson (Judges 16:17), mantle of Elijah and Elisha (2 Kings 2:14).
