“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions”
If you are a Christian, then you have been called into charismatic ministry, regardless of your title. The man Ananias for example, was just a disciple, a pupil, a learner…like you.
Yet see what happened to him in Acts 9:10-12: “And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord. And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas forone called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth, And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight” (Acts 9:10-12).
This wasn’t Pastor Ananias. He was a brother. Yet, he saw a vision, healed the eyes of a blind man and filled him with the spirit. You have no excuse not to walk in the supernatural!
Since that is settled, here are some steps you can take to get people filled with the spirit.
- Teach well and settle misconceptions
People cannot be filled with the spirit if they are not properly taught. Many people will not speak in tongues because they have quite a number of misconceptions about it. We treated most of them in earlier articles, so brush up on your studies.
- Assure their hearts: Let them know that the promise of the spirit is for everyone who believes in Jesus. (Acts 2, John 7:37-39)
- Lay hands: Ananias laid hands. Peter laid hands. John laid hands. Paul laid hands (Acts 8:14-17). So you can lay hands and pray along.
