Same Today as Yesterday and Tomorrow?
Some would say that the gifts of the Spirit passed away with the first apostles. Some would say that the gifts of the Spirit are active today, but not in the way they were in the early church. Some would say that the gifts of the Spirit are active today as in the early church, but there are certain clear and orderly restrictions on his activity.
To determine where we stand and to stand with truth, we must go to the final authority on truth -- the Word of God as found in the Holy Scriptures.

The Last Days
A prophecy is recorded in the Old Testament about the "Last Days," saying that God is going to pour out his Spirit upon all flesh. They will see visions, dream dreams, and prophecy, and whoever calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.
Most Christians will agree we're living in the "Last Days." But many of those same Christians will claim that there is no longer any true prophecy or Godly visions. And yet we're not interested in speculation or the result of the fear to fully surrender to the Holy Spirit. Our focus is the Word of God as our sole source of spiritual truth and the Christian walk.
Jesus told his disciples that when they received the gift of the Holy Spirit, they would then be endued with power from on high, and would be witnesses. And we see the result of this in the second chapter of Acts, as the Holy Spirit descended, people came to see what all the ruckus was about, and the Good News of reconciliation to God through Jesus Christ was proclaimed and accepted by many.
It is our desire and aim to remove the boundaries we have set to the working of the Holy Spirit, including the boundaries inside ourselves of fear and pride. And we would like to encourage you to examine yourself and do the same. And as we step out of the way and allow God's Spirit to have his way in and through us, we'll see more and more of the harvest come in as a result.
Currently there are more than 13,200,311 people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number continues to grow by 150,000 to 300,000 per week. Help us reach as many of those as possible with the love and life-changing Good News of reconciliation with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
