Be Filled with the Spirit

Pastor Don Coleman pours out his heart about what the Lord has shown him on the mountain top during the 45 days he was on sabbatical. About a third of the way into the message Don uses a popular song as an example of being used by the Lord.  And then he uses several scriptures which are also included below. It is a moving message through which we hope your heart will be stirred by the Holy Spirit as you listen.

Here are the Lyrics to the Mali Music "Jack in the box" copied from


Romans 5:29, 32 (Amplified) And I know that when I do come to you, I shall come in the abundant blessing of the Gospel of Christ.... So that by God’s will I may subsequently come to you with joy (with a happy heart) and be refreshed [by the interval of rest] in your company.

Luke 12:32 (ESV) “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

Romans 14:17 (ESV) For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

Ephesians 1:17-19 (ESV) that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might

Ephesians 3:19 (ESV) and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Luke 3:15-16, 21-22 (ESV) As the people were in expectation, and all were questioning in their hearts concerning John, whether he might be the Christ, John answered them all, saying, “I baptize you with water, but he who is mightier than I is coming, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire....Now when all the people were baptized, and when Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, the heavens were opened, and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form, like a dove; and a voice came from heaven, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.”

Acts 8:15-17 (ESV) who came down and prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit, for he had not yet fallen on any of them, but they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then they laid their hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit.
