Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel, If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole; be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him do this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of the builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:8 – 12).
Some of us has the Holy Spirit but the Spirit is being grieved. Some of us has the Holy Spirit but are not filled with the Holy Spirit. When you are filled with the Holy Spirit there is a boldness about you. There is a confidence about you. It cannot be contained. There is no fear of man in you. Under the influence of Almighty God, you will declare his truth. You will stand up against the viles of evil and the ways of corruption. You will regard vanity as vanity. You will give it its rightful name. You will call it death, even when others call it life. Truth shall come out of thy mouth and it shall spring forth like rivers of living water. The LORD God Almighty will be glorified. And men who stand up against his servants will not find joy, lest they repent of their sins. REPENTANCE IS GOOD FOR THE SOUL. God sheweth mercy to the repenting soul. Let all who have the indwelling hope of Christ our LORD and Savior, rejoice in the hopeful glory of the Holy Spirit. God has ways of using the rejects of this world and exalt them before men. He has ways of lifting up the lowly, the unlearned, the weak. He has ways of silencing those who consider themselves wise in the sight of man, yet they are foolish before God. The wisdom of God will be magnified today. O Hallelujah. It will be magnified in all the land. In the four corners of the earth they will know that the same Christ they rejected is alive today. The same Christ they crucified liveth evermore. The glory of the LORD is upon me; his mighty hand beseech me. Christ, the Son of the living God will be magnified today. He has risen from the grave on the third day. The hope of the living God will be hopeful indeed. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, all the bondage is broken. All the shackles are fallen off. Freedom has come to the lame, the impotent shall be potent. The broken shall be made whole. The name of our LORD shall be magnified in all the land. I declare it. Let all stand up before God and acknowledge his authority. Let all humble themselves in the presence of the Almighty God. Let all who desire to corrupt and destroy, cease today. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I say cease.
