Proverbs 9:10, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.”
III. THE FILLING OF FAITH IN VERSE 8.
Galatians 5:22, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,”
Ephesians 2:8, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:”
- Faith for salvation. Mark 16:16, “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.”
- Faith for service. Look at Hebrews 11:1-6.
- Faith for sanctified living.
- Faith is believing.
- Faith is responding.
- Faith is receiving.
We want to receive and then believe that is humanism. Look at the examples of Abram and Sarah with the baby.
IV. THE FILLING OF GRACE.
1. Grace towards others.
2. Grace towards self.
V. THE FILLING OF POWER.
- Power in prayer.
- Power in persecution.
“FIVE BIBLE FILLINGS” – it all starts with salvation!
Please read Acts 6:5-6.
The laying on of hands has absolutely nothing to do with receiving power. It only means that these men are set aside for and were together in service.
Having said that, I want to get into the heart of the message:
FIVE BIBLE FILLINGS:
I. THE FILLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Look again at verse 3 and Ephesians 5:18.
- He comforts in trouble.
- He empowers in service.
- He encourages and gives boldness.
II. THE FILLING OF WISDOM VERSE 3.
1 Corinthians 12:8, “For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;”
Luke 21:15, “For I will give you (Jesus) a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.”
