Jeff: hi, I’m Pastor Jeff Lane and there are many people that are requesting the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and I said, and if the Lord leads me, I would begin to teach you, and I’ll begin to teach you tonight.
If the Lord has me to teach something different, and do not get upset, and will do a little series, and it will take some time. but I want you to see the reason and the purpose for the baptism of the Holy Spirit and why, we have the Holy Spirit, and why we have things differently.
Now in the Old Testament, in the Old Testament, the Holy Ghost would come on the people, however, the Bible would say the word came to them and you see it, and the Holy Spirit came and maybe spoke to them or inspired them and then he would leave.
The Bible says, and he baptized Jesus in the Holy Ghost when he received the water baptism, and it remained on him, and that would be a big difference, and how the Holy Spirit was working in the Old Testament, and he came and he went and he came and he went, however now, he remains. But why is that? I’ll explain. Continue reading The Baptism of the Holy Ghost.→
>>Jeff: hi, I’m pastor Jeff Lane and I’m so happy to be with you tonight, and I was feeling like Christmas, and I am waiting for the Lord, and I feel like I’m a kid, running down the stairs, to see what is underneath the tree.

There were some builders, and one built a house on the rock, and one built the house on the sand and when the storms of life came, and one fell, and one collapsed, and if you don’t know the foundation of the word and you don’t know the Old Testament, you will have a hard time, you need the foundation and you need the understanding that God is still working with his people in a very similar way like he always has, and the same way.
