For those who do not know about the Holy Spirit or need to learn more, go to this webpage.
The first thing you have to understand is that the Father is more willing to give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him than we are to give good gifts to our children. Jesus said in Luke 11:13 ‘If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!’
So you see, it is very easy to obtain this power of the Holy Spirit from your Father God.
Yet……. How little evidence have I seen of Christians having this Holy Spirit power that is so easy to obtain. The Lord Jesus clearly states that everyone who asks receives.
Christians have been praying constantly for as long as I can remember, but yet I read or hear of no testimony confirming the answer to their prayers.
This next paragraph is not meant as a boast regarding myself. However, if you read my Testimony you will see that I received the Holy Spirit very early on in my new life as a Child of God. My Father was using me to witness for his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Clearly, it had to be the Holy Spirit that enabled me to achieve this.
An excerpt from my Testimony
After my spiritual conversion in September 1977 I was to discover that Christianity is an exciting and fulfilling experience. A consciousness, where personal communication or exchange between a divine God in three persons and a created human being is the secret of the whole of it. Jn 14:23 Jesus replied, If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. (NIV holy bible) and Rev 3:20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me. (NIV holy bible)
WHERE IS THE PUBLIC TESTIMONY OF CHRISTIANS THAT PROVE HE WAS TELLING THE TRUTH?
When I studied the Holy Bible over a period of time I saw with great clarity that it describes those who are right with the Lord Jesus Christ, as having a living relationship with Him, His Father, the Holy Spirit, and each other. It puzzled me as to why Christians shouted up to God.
Jesus is Lord! God uses us to witness for Jesus! As a desperate husband and father striving to cope with all the social penalties having a suicidal wife and mother to care for brings, I responded to the gospel of Christ with the result that the Lord Jesus, His Father, and the Holy Spirit came and made their home with me, as Jesus had promised.
We have been used, despite our obvious weaknesses, throughout the world in the fight against evil by allowing Christ’s light to shine out of us into the darkness of this evil age where even unborn babies are allowed to be killed by doctors who are trained to save life.
If our Leaders cannot protect an unborn child, what protection can we expect?
I provide real testimony that backs up Jesus’ divine teaching and promises given to us in the Holy Bible.
As Jesus said: John 14:11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. 12 I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. 15 If you love me, you will obey what I command. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counsellor to be with you forever– 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. (NIV holy bible)
If you then read on from my Testimony, it is also clear that Most, if not all, local Christian Church Leaders have not been receptive to my ministry and have denied themselves and their Church Members the benefit of my Holy Spirit empowered gifts. This despite God wanting them to be blessed to their advantage.
Christians who pray for a spiritual revival in my City of Birmingham and elsewhere, while seeking to quench the Holy Spirit from doing God’s will. May God have mercy on them and may the Lord Jesus act to correct them before they go before Him to be judged.

Whatever your problem is on this matter, I can guarantee you, it is not God’s fault, but yours.
