When The Spirit Has His Way


Spiritual power, Spiritual companionship and Spiritual Fulfillment! Those are just a few of the gifts given to us by the Holy Spirit who was sent by the Father to continue the work of Christ in our lives and experience.

These messages explore this basic doctrine which has suffered at the hands of extremists who associate the work of the Spirit with various manifestations. But these distortions aside, if we wish to personally and corporately know God’s special blessing, we must understand the Scriptural doctrine of the Holy Spirit and its application to our lives. These messages are not merely doctrinal, but intended to transform our personal lives and the corporate life of the church. When the Spirit has His way, we can expect things to be different–very different!
