TITLE: Teach us more dear Holy Spirit
By Donald Ford


Lesson plan for today:

{GOD is STILL in the PHYSICAL HEALING BUSINESS. HE is still performing physical miracles today. DO NOT BE DECEIVED!!!!.} Come Holy Spirit!

Hi friends, fellow prayer warriors, those of like precious faith. We have been given such a rich and precious gift in our Faith. We serve an awesome, all knowing God. That before we were conceived in the womb, or were even thought about. He knew who we were and who we would become. Thank you Jeremiah for sharing those wonderful truths.
We often forget that we are surrounded by 'so great a cloud of witnesses", the believers who have gone before. We are (as believers today) called priests and kings before our God and Creator. We need healing and miracles today as much as any people in the church’s history - in fact the gospels have been so WATERED down and its words left so lifeless that others who seek Him will not find Him as they are lead astray by the doctrines of men, not GOD. He is still in the HEALING business and He is still feeding the 5000 today, make no mistake about that. There are a multitude of believers who experience His healing touch in such miraculous ways every day in our country.
I continue to stand on the Word of the Lord that refers to Him as being the same yesterday, today, and forever. We live in the last dispensation of God. The Father came before, followed by His Son and now we live in the age of the Holy Spirit. But how many really know the Third Person of the Godhead?
God made man like Himself in that we are a three part person also. We have a body –like Jesus, a mind - like the mind of God the Father and last but not LEAST a Spirit - like
guess who? Are we afraid of the Holy Spirit? He is rather ghost-like, but He is also God.
Well, folks I do not want to burst your bubble, but the Holy Spirit wants in. That's right. If you are reading this and don't know what I mean, begin to ask Him to reveal Himself to you and ask Him to come in to your life. We need Jesus to live in our Hearts. but we need the Spirit who is with us, to be in us, as Jesus put it. Let the Holy Spirit come in. Scary, you bet ya.
Do not go on your own intellect or even on what was drilled into you as a child, but seek the Holy Spirit. It is the age in which we live and after He is taken out (scripture warns us this will happen) There is NO ONE COMING AFTER THE SPIRIT. You can know the Holy Spirit and you really do need Him. He will not speak to you of Himself but reveal the Son of God more fully to you. He is the Comforter and many need Him today in the ravaged world we live in. His own followers need Him most.
Let God complete the last and final work in your life by allowing the Holy Spirit of God in to your life. Seek Him and He will be found of you! He is with you or along side of you now you must ask Him to come in. You can have an upper room experience right now where you are. Prayer was for back then and it is for now also. Healing was needed back then and is needed more so now. Miracles, my friend, are for today and for our lifetimes. Let’s bring Holy Spirit back into the churches where He has not been welcome for a few decades. Spirit of the Living God, fall fresh on us.

Your passion comes through loud and clear.

I'm not sure about how it ties in to the topic of Sunday School--are we supposed to be "eavesdropping" on a teacher's lesson? It lacks a bit of focus--it started out to be about healing, but strayed a bit.

Thank you for sharing your heart with us.

This was very interesting! I liked the idea of it being a 'lesson' plan.
Just a tip-add a few more spaces between paragraphs to make for eaiser reading.
Good job!
