4 And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me;
5 for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”
6 Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?”
7 And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.
8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Sermon Notes: Promise of the Holy Spirit
1. The promise is His Power.
He will give you his super-natural power to go through storms, sorrows, and all situations. Christ told his disciples in Acts 1:8, "ye shall receive power.
2. The promise is His Presence.
He will give you his presence that's closer than any family, friend, or fellowman can give. In Acts 1:8, Christ said, "ye shall be witnesses unto me,".
3. And His Promise is the Holy Spirit. He will give you his promise that he will not fail, falter, or forsake you. Christ tells his disciples in Acts 1:8, that through the Holy Spirit he would be with them "unto the most uttermost part of the earth."
What will the Holy Spirit do for you today, whatever you’re going through today!
The promise of the Holy Spirit is with you!
