Stillness in the Spirit

Stillness in the Spirit

Somehow, we’ve been led to believe that praying is always about the words we speak. As you study God’s Word, however, you will discover that it is often our silence that the Lord desires. The prophet Zephaniah wrote:

“Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord God…” (Zephaniah 1:7)

As you pray and God begins to fill you, the abundance leaves no more room for words. Yet in your silence, you […]

Releasing Fear

Releasing Fear

The power and authority the apostles received began to touch lives at every turn. Their ministry was followed by “many signs and wonders…among the people” (Acts 5:12). And what was the result?

“Believers were increasingly added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women” (Acts 5:14).

The signs that followed the coming of the Holy Spirit led people directly to Christ. That’s an important fact to remember.

What happened in the Upper Room was […]

Brazilians Greet Pastor Benny Hinn in Packed Estádio do Canindé

Brazilians Greet Pastor Benny Hinn in Packed Estádio do Canindé

From the first refrain of “How Great Thou Art,” sung in both English and Portuguese, to the final “Amen!” it was obvious to all in attendance that something special was happening. The front of the pulpit proclaimed “JESUS,” and truly our Lord was lifted up from the beginning to end of this remarkable service.

“The Lord has been speaking to me in dreams,” Pastor Benny taught, […]

Total Dependence on the Savior

Total Dependence on the Savior

What does it mean to be totally dependent upon the Savior?

Let me go back to the Old Testament for an undeniable example. King David, considered by historians and scholars to be one of the most powerful and successful warriors of his day, was very willing to openly declare that without God he could do nothing.

This thought runs throughout the longest chapter of the Bible.

When I saw what the psalmist […]

How to Gain Authority in Your Faith

How to Gain Authority in Your Faith

It is impossible to predict where your walk with the Holy Spirit will lead.

The story of Stephen, as recorded in Acts, is a good example. He was not an apostle before becoming a deacon. Stephen was simply active in the church in Jerusalem, a man full of the Holy Spirit, and faith (see Acts 6:5).

It is apparent that the Holy Spirit was moving in a great and […]

One Touch From Jesus

One Touch From Jesus

Saul, who later was called Paul, is a prime example of the way the Holy Spirit can transform your walk. Can you imagine calling someone who is a blasphemer, a persecutor, and a murder, “Brother”?

To the natural ear, that sounds impossible. But that’s what the Holy Spirit can do. He makes the impossible possible. When God told Ananias to go and pray for Saul, he argued:

“Lord, I have […]

Great or Small Faith

Great or Small Faith

Do you remember the story of the centurion who came to Jesus for the sake of his servant? It’s one of the clearest descriptions in the Scriptures of exactly what “faith” entails. Read Luke 7 to see if I’m telling the story correctly.

The centurion was a powerful man who commanded an entire garrison of men. Yet one day he faced a problem he couldn’t defeat on his own, and he […]

Saving Faith

Saving Faith

Two things are necessary for evangelical or saving faith. The first is intellectual conviction after hearing the truth. I do not mean merely the abstract truth but its bearing on you. The truth, in its relation to you, or its bearing on your conduct, must be received intellectually. The second thing that is necessary for saving faith is a corresponding change of heart. When a man’s mind is convinced, and he admits […]

A Burden for Souls

A Burden for Souls

Your heavenly Father desires to give you what you hunger for. The Holy Spirit actually “strives” with you. He is actively making plans to fill your life to overflowing.

Just look around and you will see a world that desperately needs Jesus. Millions surround us who are driving full speed on the highway to hell. We must wake up and say:

“Lord! Give me a double portion of Your anointing, that I […]
