Chapter 3 – The Holy Spirit

THE HOLY SPIRIT Has Blessed Testimonies and Miracles!

THE HOLY SPIRIT Has Given Approval — Chapter 3  is dedicated To THE HOLY SPIRIT!

 

Do you remember when THE HOLY SPIRIT led me into the phone booth in Testimony and Miracles?

You, too, can have THE HOLY SPIRIT.

 

Too many men, erroneously, think they’ll buy a ticket to Heaven by going to seminary.

Too many pastors in the United States have been “taught” by men against THE HOLY SPIRIT in their “prestigious” seminaries.

Among other corrupt arguments, some theologians try to argue that THE HOLY SPIRIT went to Heaven and is staying there only (which is nowhere in The Holy Bible), when Paul was murdered by Nero.  Some theologians say this lie and that no miracles, except possibly Salvation, have occurred since Paul.  The evidence otherwise is overwhelming.

Another small-intelligence lie by theologians, because their mortal minds cannot control THE HOLY SPIRIT, is twisting what Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 13:8, (their theology falls right in the middle of Paul’s continuing statements in 1 Corinthians 12 and 1 Corinthians 14 about THE HOLY SPIRIT) saying that Speaking In Tongues (not phony babbling) also ceased when Paul died, instead of at the end of time on Judgment Day.  However, years after Paul died, the Apostle John still had THE HOLY SPIRIT, and, he was told by our SAVIOUR JESUS about THE HOLY SPIRIT’s activity in a number of churches (Revelation Chapters 2 & 3}.   These  theologians are leading people astray — especially, our future pastors.  Where are these theologians’ faith?  What does GOD say about the faithless in Revelation 21:8?

Some people fake Speaking In Tongues in church.  They may want to feel like they’re “with it” or important.  They may think they are helping the church — they are not helping the church — they are doing the opposite by faking Speaking In Tongues, for they are, effectively, lying.  If it is not by THE HOLY SPIRIT,  I do not want to hear it!

Do not restrain THE HOLY SPIRIT; do not despise inspired messages.  1 Thessalonians 5:19,20 (GNB).

Instead of going to a church where the pastor is filled with himself, instead of THE HOLY SPIRIT, and listening to his dry & inaccurate theology, it is much better to go to a Church where you can actually feel THE HOLY SPIRIT.

An ounce of experience with THE HOLY SPIRIT is worth more than a ton of theology.

The HOLY SPIRIT is alive and well on planet earth.  Thank You GOD!

May you be baptized by THE HOLY SPIRIT as I have been, Chaplain Phil.

 

Is anything too hard for The LORD?  Genesis 18:14a (NCV)

Who has believed our message?  To whom has the LORD’s power been revealed?  Isaiah 53:1 (GW)

_

“But you are not to be called teacher. There is only one TEACHER, and all of you are Brothers.  Matthew 23:8 (NLV)

_

JESUS answered:  I tell you for certain that before you can get into GOD’s kingdom, you must be born not only by water, but by THE SPIRIT.  John 3:5 (CEV)

_

Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey GOD rather than human beings!  Acts 5:29 (NIV)

_

And we are witnesses of these things, and so is THE HOLY SPIRIT, Whom GOD has given to those who obey HIS laws.  Acts 5:32 (TBIBE)

“How stubborn you are!” Stephen went on to say. “How heathen your hearts, how deaf you are to GOD’s message! You are just like your ancestors: you too have always resisted THE HOLY SPIRIT!  Acts 7:51 (GNT)

_

And so the church…had peace and was made strong; and, living in the fear of THE LORD and in the comfort of THE HOLY SPIRIT, was increased greatly.  Acts 9:31 (TBIBE)

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness to GOD.  As it says in the book of Job, GOD uses man’s own brilliance to trap him; he stumbles over his own “wisdom” and falls.  And again, in the book of Psalms, we are told that the LORD knows full well how the human mind reasons and how foolish and futile it is.  So don’t be proud of following the wise men of this world.  For GOD has already given you everything you need.   1 Corinthians 3:19-21 (TLB)

_

 Not that we lord it over your faith, but we work with you for your joy, because it is by faith you stand firm.  2 Corinthians 1:24 (NIVUK)

_

 Feed the flock of GOD which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; neither as being lords over GOD’s heritage, but being examples to the Flock.  And when the chief SHEPHERD shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.  1 Peter 5:2-4 (KJV)

“The chief danger that confronts the coming century will be religion without THE HOLY GHOST, Christianity without CHRIST, forgiveness without Repentance, Salvation without Regeneration, politics without GOD and Heaven without Hell.”

My dear friends, do not believe all who claim to have THE SPIRIT, but test them to find out if the spirit they have comes from GOD.  For many false prophets have gone out everywhere.

1 John 4:1,2 (GNB)

 

But you belong to GOD, my children, and have defeated the false prophets, because THE SPIRIT WHO is in you is more powerful than the spirit in those who belong to the world.

We are of GOD.  He who knows GOD hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us.  By this we know THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH and the spirit of error.

For there are Three WHO bear witness in heaven:  THE FATHER, THE WORD, and THE HOLY SPIRIT; and these THREE are one.

And there are three that bear witness on earth:  THE SPIRIT, the water, and the blood and these three agree as one.

1 John 5:6-8 (NKJV)

 

These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not THE SPIRIT.  But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in THE HOLY GHOST.

Jude 19:20 (KJV)

 

“Anyone who is willing to hear should listen to THE SPIRIT and understand what THE SPIRIT is saying to the churches.  Everyone who is victorious will eat from the tree of life in the paradise of GOD.

“Anyone who is willing to hear should listen to THE SPIRIT and understand what THE SPIRIT is saying to the churches.  Whoever is victorious will not be hurt by the second death.

“Anyone who is willing to hear should listen to THE SPIRIT and understand what THE SPIRIT is saying to the churches.  Everyone who is victorious will eat of the manna that has been hidden away in heaven.  And I will give to each one a white stone, and on the stone will be engraved a new name that no one knows except the one who receives it.

Anyone who is willing to hear should listen to THE SPIRIT and understand what THE SPIRIT is saying to the churches.

Anyone who is willing to hear should listen to THE SPIRIT and understand what THE SPIRIT is saying to the churches.

Revelation 3:6,13,22  (NLT)

 

And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this down:  Blessed are those who die in THE LORD from now on.  Yes, says THE SPIRIT, they are blessed indeed, for they will rest from all their toils and trials; for their good deeds follow them!”

Revelation 14:13  (NLT)

 

And THE SPIRIT and the bride say, “Come!”  And let him who hears say, “Come!”  And let him who thirsts come.  And whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.

Revelation 22:17

Some people think that they are automatically baptized by THE HOLY SPIRIT when they are baptized with water.  When anyone is actually baptized by THE HOLY SPIRIT, it will be vividly known and not falsely justified by theory.  Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of JESUS CHRIST for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of THE HOLY GHOST. Acts 2:38 (KJV).  GOD decides whether a person receives THE HOLY SPIRIT, if ever — not finite minds in a seminary theology school.  The apostles and myself (re-read the first testimony in the Home Page) were baptized by THE HOLY SPIRIT — years after being baptized with water.   While the Apostle Peter was speaking, Cornelius [as in  Page 2, Courage …] and his family were baptized by THE HOLY SPIRIT — before they were baptized with water.  And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.  If ye the, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children; how much more shall your heavenly FATHER give The HOLY SPIRIT to them that ask HIM?  Luke 11:9,13 (KJV).

The first supernatural experience I had with THE HOLY SPIRIT was right after I Prayed and Asked GOD, THE FATHER to forgive me for all of my sins and right when I Prayed and Asked JESUS, THE KING OF KINGS to Come Into my heart — I was Baptized By THE HOLY SPIRIT right then.  I was not Given the gift of Speaking In Tongues, but was Given the Gift of wisdom from being Baptized By THE HOLY SPIRIT.

To one person THE SPIRIT gives the ability to give wise advice;

to another the same SPIRIT gives a message of special knowledge.  

The same SPIRIT gives great faith to another,

and to someone else the one SPIRIT gives the gift of healing. 

HE gives one person the power to perform miracles,

and another the ability to prophesy. 

HE gives someone else the ability to discern whether a message is from THE SPIRIT OF GOD or from another spirit. 

Still another person is given the ability to speak in unknown languages,

while another is given the ability to interpret what is being said.  

It is THE one and only SPIRIT who distributes all these gifts. 

HE alone decides which gift each person should have.

1 Corinthians 12:8-11 (NLT)

THE HOLY SPIRIT’s Gift of wisdom is before even Speaking In Tongues.  The Gift of wisdom is the first Gift before the other Gifts.

College professors were surprised by what I was saying from the wisdom THE HOLY SPIRIT had Given me, and they would meet with me off campus.  They kept in contact with me after they retired, as well.  When I visited a city hundreds of miles from where I lived, a Dean of a university welcomed me to stay over in his house.  He & his wife insisted I sleep in their master bedroom, while they slept in a guest room.

. . . for he who is honouring Me,

I honour . . .

1 Samuel 2:30 (YLT)

There is more wisdom with THE HOLY SPIRIT than all of the colleges and universities.

When I was 28 years old, I obeyed the Greatest Commandment for the first time.  I had trouble with doing the “all” part in Loving JESUS, my LORD with all of  my heart, all of my soul, all of my mind, and all of my strength, and I was not successful.  I Prayed to and Asked THE HOLY SPIRIT To Help me Love JESUS with the “all” in Loving JESUS with all of my heart, all of my soul, all of my mind, and all of my strength; and THE HOLY SPIRIT Helped me completely and successfully Love JESUS with

all of my heart,

all of my soul,

all of my mind,

and all of my strength.

THE HOLY SPIRIT Has Done the same thing for me with GOD, THE FATHER.  [Also, JESUS, my LORD Led me directly To HIS FATHER, GOD, THE FATHER after I successfully did the Greatest Commandment with JESUS proving, when I was 28 years old, John 14:6, “JESUS Said Unto him, I Am the Way, the Truth, and the Life:  no man cometh unto THE FATHER, but by ME.”]

When I completed obeying the Greatest Commandment, I had and have direct Communication with GOD.  I Ask HIM questions and HE Answers me, as GOD Has Done for other Christians.  I continue to obey the Greatest Commandment on a regular basis.

THE HOLY SPIRIT, also, Helped me with the Greatest Commandment letters, and HE Helped me write the book, How To Love GOD More — Experiences In Obeying The Greatest Commandment [which is in this Testimonies and Miracles in Chapter 5 — Experiences In Obeying The Greatest Commandment and Love].  Since these, THE HOLY SPIRIT Has Helped me with all 14 Chapters of Testimonies and Miracles.

Joseph, Jacob’s son, went through a number of bad troubles (Genesis chapters 37 thru 40), but GOD Used Joseph and Honored Joseph.  In my early and mid 30’s, I had bad troubles, but I stood true to GOD.  In my mid 30’s THE HOLY SPIRIT supernaturally sent wild animals to be with me and to comfort me.

And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook;

and I Have Commanded the ravens to feed thee there.

1 Kings 17:4

For years I wanted to have the Gift Of THE HOLY SPIRIT of Speaking In Tongues; I did about everything I could think of for this to happen; but I was not succeeding.  Even the former mayor’s daughter would come by and asked me if I was Speaking In Tongues yet.

Later one night, I had a temperature, but I went ahead and Prayed in fervent Prayer and around midnight GOD, THE FATHER and JESUS and THE HOLY SPIRIT graciously Gave me, which I did not deserve, the Gift of Speaking In Tongues and it was wonderful.  GOD Has Granted me the Heavenly Language of Speaking In Tongues through the years to this day.

Now at this sound,

the multitude came together and were confounded

because each one heard them speak in his own tongue.

Acts 2:6 (JUB)

Years later, being a chaplain in the emergency room there was a patient there whose legs were darkened and thrashing about because of lack of blood flow to the legs.  The doctor did not know what to do and left the room in the emergency room she was in.  I went to her next to her bed and Prayed for her in the Name Of JESUS and THE HOLY SPIRIT immediately Healed her!  Normal color came back into her legs immediately and her legs instantly stopped thrashing around!  Her son was there, too.

Rev, Bill Bathman, the famous missionary, and I were talking again on the telephone, but this time he had a chronic cough.  I Prayed for him in JESUS’s Name and THE HOLY SPIRIT immediately Healed him of the chronic cough!

There are other people, whom THE HOLY SPIRIT Has Healed when I Prayed for them In JESUS’s Name.

Then Peter, filled with THE HOLY SPIRIT,

said to them,

“Rulers of the people and elders of Israel:

If we today are being examined concerning a good deed done to a crippled man,

how this man has been healed,

Acts 4:8,9 (MEV)

THE HOLY SPIRIT is

my HELPER and my COUNSELOR,

my COMFORTER, and

THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH.

When Christian individuals and groups of Christian people have before GOD deeply repented with no compromise, THE HOLY SPIRIT has come down on them working miracles with THE HOLY SPIRIT’s presence felt — in the United States from the Great Awakening in the 18th and 19th Centuries;  some of the true HOLY SPIRIT revivals from that time period thru the 20th Century were the Cane Ridge Meeting (which was the very 1st Camp Meeting) 1801 (near Paris, Kentucky), Landis Park Revival 1867 (Vineland, New Jersey), Manheim Revival 1868 (Lancaster, Pennsylvania), Parham Bible School Revival 1901 (Topeka, Kansas), Azusa Street Revival 1906 (Los Angeles, California), Cashwell Revival 1907 (Dunn, North Carolina), and the Asbury College (not the proud seminary school next to the college — as Pastor Ross, who was a seminary student at the “prestigious” Asbury Seminary in 1950, told me) Revival in 1950 (Wilmore, Kentucky).  Another one of the true HOLY SPIIRT revivals has occurred in Pensacola, Florida during the 1990’s with Steve Hill and Glen Gerhauser  [Pastor Glen Gerhauser has been following every new post in this Testimonies and Miracles for over 5 years, and you can read about him later in Chapter 8 Glen Gerhauseer of Australia];  I had the privilege of attending this revival; and, Daniel Kolenda attended this Revival, too, and became the successor to the much loved Reinhard Bonnke, and Daniel is now President of  the Christ for all Nations.

The Revivals in the USA pale in comparison to the Revivals in Africa, with many thanks to Reinhard Bonnke for knowing and obeying THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Because of THE HOLY SPIRIT being with Reinhard Bonnke over 76 million people have dedicated their lives to  JESUS, THE FAITHFUL AND TRUE WITNESS.  Sad for many people here on earth, Reinhard Bonnke passed on December 7, 2019 a D,

 

 

If you want to receive THE HOLY SPIRIT, go to JESUS THE CHRIST.

If you read the first testimony in Chapter 1, you will see that when I first received THE HOLY SPIRIT, I had sincerely Asked GOD,  THE FATHER To Forgive me for everything I had done wrong and then sincerely asked JESUS CHRIST into my heart and immediately I was baptized by THE HOLY SPIRIT!  Neighbor, I hope this happens to you, too.

If THE SPIRIT OF GOD, WHO raised JESUS from death, lives in you, then HE WHO raised CHRIST from death will also give life to your mortal bodies by the presence of HIS SPIRIT in you.  Romans 8:11 (GNB)

Breathe on me, Breath of GOD,

Fill me with life anew,

That I may love what THOU dost love,

And do what THOU Wouldst do.

 

Breathe on me Breath of GOD,

Until my heart is pure,

Until with THEE I will one will,

To do and to endure.

 

Breathe on me, Breath of GOD,

Till I am wholly THINE,

Till all this earthly part of me

Glows with THY fire Divine.

 

Breathe on me, Breath of GOD,

So shall I never die,

But live with THEE the perfect life

Of  THINE  eternity

“Call to mind our numerous offences against The Most High GOD, confess them before HIM with the sincerest penitence, implore HIS pardoning mercy, through the Great MEDIATOR and REDEEMER, for out past transgressions, and that through the grace of HIS HOLY SPIRIT, we may be deposed and enabled to yield a more suitable obedience to HIS righteous requisitions.”

  1. I love The Holy Spirit! He tells God what I need in words only He can understand!

  2. Happy is the man who finds wisdom,
    and the man who gets understanding;

    The LORD by wisdom has founded the earth;
    by understanding HE has established the heavens;

    Solomon
    Proverbs 3:13 & 19
    The Holy Bible

  3. After looking at Brother Phil’s work here,
    I was almost instantly given the spiritual tools I needed
    (and which I prayed earnestly for) in battling my mental battles.

    Thank you, Holy Spirit!
