The Gift of God that's Within You

Part 1: Introduction: Power, Love, & a Sound Mind

Audio Written Summary

Not everything in the Kingdom of God is first intellectualized and then acted upon. A lot in the Kingdom of God is EXPERIENCED and THEN understood! God is saying “if you will let me go outside your intellectual box, I will take you into places that otherwise you’d limit Me from taking you.”

Peter’s been touched by God more powerfully in the last couple of weeks than he ever have been in his entire life - including having the most profound encounters with the love of God that he has ever had. Being “slain in the Spirit” is pretty new to Peter. While it had happened a couple times before when he was praying for people, in the last month it has happened about 25-30 times when he prayed for people. He knows there is something different happening when he prays for people now - a new normal. Each member of Agathos is going to start flowing in the same power because you receive the grace on a minister’s life when you honor that ministry. So, we need to have spotters when people pray.
 
Jesus told the Sadducees that they do “err” - knowing neither the Scriptures nor the power of God. “For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power.” God has given us a Spirit. It is not a spirit of fear, but of power! If you want to operate in power according to God’s Holy Spirit, you need to operate in two other things as well - love and a sound mind. The Scriptures and the Spirit cannot be separated!
 
There is NEVER any shame in someone being demonized (in other words, oppressed in some way by a demon). The only shame would be them not wanting to be set free. The truth we know will set us free, but sometimes God appoints a time to deliver us from lenses and triggers that have held us back from total freedom. Praise God we can partner with Him for each of His children’s total freedom! It’s here - we are going to minister in more power than ever before!

Part 2: Activating God's Fire through Impartation!

Audio Written Summary

We already have been, but more than ever before, the people of Agathos are going to be doing the works of God WITH POWER. God spoke to Peter that this is a season of “Activation!” And that He wants to activate “My fire!” through the “laying on of hands!” 

The gift of God that was in Timothy was in him through the laying on of Paul’s hands. (2 Tim. 1:6) Hebrews 6:1-3 also makes it clear that “laying on of hands” is one of the 5 elementary principles of Christ. Impartation can be for blessing, baptism in the Holy Spirit, spiritual gifts, leadership transfer, and releasing healing. The impartation is through us but ultimately from God. Children qualify (Jesus laid hands on them to bless them), and God gives us what we are ready for. 
 
The kingdom of God is by faith AND impartation can accelerate your trajectory in the kingdom! Listen to this message to hear two testimonies of the amazing impact impartation has had in just about a month’s time. 
 
We see from the start (with Adam and Eve) that God did not just speak to man. He laid His hands on man! God is saying “until you’ve been touched by Me, you will not see your destiny!” God can raise up children for Abraham from the stones. God can raise up ANYONE that He can touch! 
 
This is beyond our intellect. He wants to activate HIS FIRE. Fire falls on sacrifice! Romans 12:1 says we should present ourselves a living sacrifice. Fire falls on sacrifice! Peter had his own zeal and denied the Lord 3 times before the rooster crowed twice. The fire fell on Peter and he comes out of hiding and preaches to thousands of people from whom he had previously been hiding! Jesus told us to be a lamp on top of a stand! We are supposed to be a lamp on a stand and they did NOT have incandescent bulbs! What was on top of that light? Fire!!!! Fire fire fire! You may have been baptized in the Holy Spirit, but fire is supposed to come with it! Receive God’s fire today!
