Be filled with the Holy Spirit by Jackie PullingerTopic: Filled With The Spirit Description: Coming from her own experience, Jackie explains what we pray for when we pray for the Holy Spirit. While trying to reach the lost in the Wall City in Hong Kong, she saw that her approach to sharing Jesus did not work. She was passionate to reach the lost, but she realized she did not have the power to make Jesus known. Her words did not work. This prompted her to seek God and she prayed: "Dear Lord, please give me whatever it is that helps me make Jesus real to the lost. Because the words don't seem to be working." This led to her receiving what is often called the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. She points out that our part as believers is to allow Jesus to reveal Himself to men. She teaches how we must expect and pray that the Spirit of God will meet the spirit of man. God wants us to share spiritual truth with spiritual words (communicating spirit-to-spirit), instead of reasoning with people (communicating mind-to-mind). A final note: The first five minutes of the recording contain a word in tongues with interpretation as well as a prophecy in Chinese that is being translated into English. This may seem unusual if one is not accustomed to the exercise of the gifts of the Spirit. Please let this not keep you from listening on. What follows is a wonderful message on the working of the Holy Spirit that shows that "evangelism" really is not our job but God's.Parts 1, 2 and 3:http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/visit.php?lid=14429http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/visit.php?lid=14430http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/visit.php?lid=14431
Excellent, very much blessed by Jackie and the ministry of the Lord through her.
"but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth." (Acts 1:8). Jesus has called His discipless to be His witnesses, and He did not send them out until they were filled with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit knows how to get the job done, and we don't. It doesn't matter how well organized your church or ministry is, if the Holy Spirit is not the one initiating the work, then it is by the flesh and it will not produce any fruit unto God. The one thing that we need to know as ministers of the Lord Jesus Christ is that without Him we can do nothing, but whatever it is that the Lord has called us to do, He will supply us with the power and the anointing of the Holy Spirit to get the job done.

I almost missed this post as I did not notice it once on the front page.Why are these things not taught in today's Western Christianity?This message should be feature message on SI.Someone needs to write the transcript for this message.
At 22, Jackie Pullinger wanted to become a missionary, but no society would take her on. So she went on her own to Hong Kong and began a pioneering work among drug addicts and Triad gang members that continues today.http://www.rejesus.co.uk/site/module/jackie_pullinger/P2/
Jackie's message from GO2013 missions event:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9XcE1icT6TYSome points covered in the message: (courtesy of http://www.clifftam.com/jackie-pullingers-sharing-in-go2013/)1) We can learn how to pray for healing and cast out demons.2) We need to be very intentional about missions. Are we doing for the people or are we doing it for our own experience?3) We need to see mission more than just a two weeks trip. Transformation takes time. The people we are reaching are not dumb. They know we just come and go. In order to share the Love of Christ they need to know we love them.4) Facebook and smart phones can be a distraction to doing the Lord’s work.5) It ain’t about just going but willing to STAY!
