A message on how to keep the balance between Holy Spirit experiences and
walking in the Integrity of God's Word

Word and Spirit - Partners in Purpose

Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! They walk, O LORD, in the light of Your Countenance - Psalm 89:15
The purpose of this message is for us to come to a more full understanding of how God wants to use the Holy Spirit and the Word of God
to seize our destiny and become more whole as Christians. Just as the Word and Spirit partner together, we must partner with them
if we are to be successful and fully inherit all that God has for us.

The Word of God gives us instruction in every area of our lives as to how we should be conformed into the image of Christ. It is the standard of which our lives must adjust to.

The power of change comes through agreement. When we are applying the Word of God to the areas the Holy Spirit is speaking to us about there is an agreement there that releases the power of God to activate the change.

Biblical Examples of the Word and Spirit Partnering Together.

Acts 2:1-4 (NKJV) When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. 4And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

The Scenario of what took place on this historic day

  • People from all nations were present and heard them speaking in their own languages – Verse 5.
  • They were all confused – Mass Confusion.
  • They were all amazed and marveled – Verse 6
  • They were perplexed – Verse 12.
  • Others mocked – Verse 13.
God revealed in us: One of the most encouraging and faith building scriptures is found in Ephesians where it eludes to the fact that we have an exceeding greatness of God’s power working in us. This happens because of the anointing of the Holy Spirit that is always at work within us. This is the same anointing that Jesus walked in when He was on earth and dependent upon the Holy Spirit working in Him. How is the Holy Spirit working in you today to bring God’s power to those around you?

These were the initial responses to the working of the Holy Spirit before the Word of God came alongside and partnered with what God was doing through the Holy Spirit.

Notice what begins to take place as the Word of God is introduced to this scenario:

Peter quotes from the Book of Joel and the Book of Psalms.

Peter Speaks with confidence andassurance – He has been able to discern from the Word of God, the prophetic purpose concerning this situation – Acts 2:29-33.

The Results of the Word Partnering with the Spirit.

  • The Conviction of the Holy Spirit is Released - Verse 37.
  • Repentance and Deliverance as well as the call and promise for everyone to be a partaker comes forth – Verses 38-39.
  • A harvest of 3000 souls were added to the church – Verse 41.
  • They all continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship – Verse 42.
  • They entered into an atmosphere of community – A commitment to Body life Verse 44.
  • Total Commitmet - They totally sold out to the Lord – Verse 45.
  • They continued in one accord praising God and having favor with the people – Verse 46-47
  • The church was launched into its destiny as were each of the individual members.
