Pastor Justin Adams in his very own breath and words of the Lord our God. Homeless Mission 200 lunches, 56 men's personal products, 50 women personal products, 10 cases of water, 110 pairs of socks, shoes, and flip flops. 2 people gave their lives to Jesus 1 Lady received the Holy Spirit. The team even paid for a weeks stay in a hotel for a homeless single mother. The team wants to thank everyone for their donations and support. This was the best homeless mission to date, God really out done Himself this time. Glory to God Almighty. Building a Life Part 2 1 Corinthians 3 : 10 - 11 According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it.But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Last week we discussed the foundation which is Jesus Christ. There is no other foundation. He is the rock, He is the chief cornerstone. All that we do must have the firm steady unchanging foundation which is Jesus Christ. If your foundation is the rock Jesus Christ when the rains come, when the wind blows, and when the floods come Your house will still be standing. Amen. Today I want to talk about the building that will sit on the foundation. After you build the foundation there is several things that will come into your life that when you build up they always have to be supported by the foundation which is Jesus Christ. One I want to talk about the day is the Holy Spirit, the spirit of the living God. The Spirit of God is that which point us in the right direction. You need to get this today. The Spirit of God is not miracles even though that is a gift of the spirit that's not what it is. The Spirit of God is not faith even though that is a gift of the spirit that's not what it is. The Spirit of God is not wisdom and knowledge even though that is a gift of the spirit the spirit of God is not that. The Spirit of God is not speaking in tongues and have a miraculous healing's even though that is a result of the Spirit of God that is a gift of the spirit. But the Spirit of God is that which points us in the right direction. Give me a minute let me explain. The Spirit of God is a helper in that comes in pointing us to the son Jesus Christ. Jesus said that the Holy spirit is a comforter. John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. He points us in the direction f what ever Jesus has said John 15 :26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: Which means the Holy Spirit will point us back to Jesus Christ. The Spirit point me in the right direction and that is always towards Jesus Christ our foundation. The Spirit can only pint us to the foundation because the Spirit testifies of Jesus. Jesus said when we receive the Spirit of God we will receive Power and we will be witnesses. That means the Spirit pushes me into sharing my faith in the right direction. I want to teach you something today hopefully you understand this Here it is. The Holy Spirit's first priority the Spirit of God first assignment is to point us to Jesus Christ. God the father sent God the son and God the son send God the Spirit and the Spirit points us back to the son just as God the father points us to Jesus. The Bible says in Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spoke unto them saying All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. The Spirit of God will point you back to the foundation which is Jesus Christ because He has all power in heaven and in earth. If your spirit is not pointing you back to the foundation which is Jesus Christ then you don't have the holy spirit. The Spirit of God which is the Spirit of the Christ, always points back to the sacrificial foundation of Jesus Christ. Even the Spirit of God knows that without the foundation in your life you will not, cannot, and you will never be able to withstand the flood, the rain, and the winds that beat against your house. But if you are build upon the foundation which is Jesus Christ the Spirit of God is there to help you, comfort you, lead you, guide you, and direct you all back to the son, Jesus Christ. Somebody oughta shout Amen. Empowers us to Build. In the account of creation at the very beginning of the Bible, we are told: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Genesis 1 1-2 The Hebrew word for Spirit here means breath. God spoke it into existence through His breathe - The Holy Spirit. The Spirit not only points us to the foundation but it is essential in building upon the foundation. Without it the building, your life, will be incomplete. I want you to think about the creative and building power of the Spirit. The world was made by God speaking things, or breathing things into existence. The Spirit is the Breathe of God. Then when God created man and woman, look what the Bible says, Genesis 2 :7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul. Without the Spirit breathing into us, we could not live, we became living souls when God created us through His breathe, his Spirit. You are unable to build your life without the Spirit. The Bible teaches we are being built by God's Spirit. Look at Ephesians 2:22 And in him you too are being build by God's Spirit. Amd in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit. You are being built by the Spirit to be a dwelling place of God. Get this now and receive this word. The Spirit of God is building you right now the Bible says so that the God of creation can dwell in you. One translations says to beome a habitation. It is onloy by the Spirit of God that we are built so that God can dwell in us. The Old Testament prophets did not have God dwelling in them. King David did nto have God dwelling in him. Saul & Samuel did not have God dwelling in them. Moses, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob never had God dwelling on the inside. Because the spirit had not descended yet. But te Bible says that on the day of Pentecost the Holy Spirit was poured out and has continued to be poured out since then. Look at Acts 2 2 -4 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. Look how the Spirit built the church that day. And look how it first came it filled the house what filled the house, the wind or the breath of God filled the house then filled the believer. Some here me today, i order for the Spirit to fill you, it must fill the atmosphere first. The foundation is there but the spirit won't build if you don't have the right atmosphere. They were in onemind inone place praying and then the spirit came to build. Prayer is crucial for the building of the Spirit. Look at Jude 1;20 But ye beloved building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost. This verse says that we are to build ourselves up but by praying in the spirit. Under the anointing of the spirit and through the power of the Spirit. I don't know about you but I know I need to help in the power of the Holy Spirit to help me reach the throne of God. When I don't know what to pray the Bible says the spirit will make intercession for me. When I don't feel like praying the spirit empowers me to build myself up so I can pray. When I'm tired the Spirit gives empowers me. When I'm with the spirit strengthens me. When I'm Brokenhearted the spirit mends me so I can pray. When I am broken the spirit encourages me. When I can't find inspiration the Holy Spirit inspires me to build myself up. The Spirit of God will not let me quit. Because the Spirit of God is a builder and the builder does not stop until the project is finished. Praise God fort he Holy Spirit that will not stop until I'm complete. Let's close today as the singers come I wanna close with this verse about building, Philippians 1:6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it onto completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Look at this subtle reference to the Spirit he who began a good work where at in you He who started building you will continue to build you up. The Spirit of God completes what is starts The Holy Spirit will complete what it has started in believers of Jesus Christ cme on somebody. The Spirit of God empowers us to build. The foundation is Jesus Christ but it is his Holy Spirit that is the builder in our life. As they begin to sing can we just pray for the Builder to empower us. Just lift ya hands or come to the altar today. The builder is in n this please. Amen. He's working on me He's completing what He started in me Maybe the work has grown cold but the builder can stir up the gift that is in you. Maybe you've been ignoring the Builder, today won't you listen to his voi8ce. The Spirit of the Lord has been trying to build you. Trying to mld you. Trying to shape in the image of Jesus. Today, let's lift our hands in surrender. Have your way sweet Spirit. Have your way mighty God. You are welcome Holy Spirit. Come into my life. If you need the baptism of the Spirit will you come today. If you need Jesus will you come today. If you need the Foundation.
