WHAT IF SOMEONE WAS WITH

YOU ALL DAY LONG, AND, GUESS

WHAT, YOU COMPLETELY IGNORED

HIM?

THAT'S WHAT AUTHOR

WELLINGTON BOONE SAYS

HAPPENS EVERY DAY TO THE

MOST IGNORED PERSON IN THE

WORLD.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter:Y$@ BISHOP

WELLINGTON BOONE IS A

BEST-SELLING AUTHOR,

NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED

SPEAKER, AND THE FOUNDING

PASTOR OF THE FATHER'S HOUSE

CHURCH IN GEORGIA.

THE REASON HE SENT US THE

HOLY GHOST IS SO THAT WE

DON'T HAVE TO DO THIS GREAT

BATTLE BY OURSELVES.

Reporter: IN HIS

UPCOMING BOOK "HOLY GHOST IS

MY FRIEND," THE BISHOP URGES

CHRISTIANS TO GO BEYOND JUST

AN EXPERIENCE, AND TO ENGAGE

THE HOLY SPIRIT IN A REAL

AND LASTING RELATIONSHIP.

WELL, PLEASE WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB" OUR

PERSONAL FRIEND BISHOP

WELLINGTON BOONE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR COMING

BACK.

THANK YOU.

WE LOVE IT WHEN YOU'RE

HERE.

I HAVE A GREAT TIME.

I'M EXCITED ABOUT THE

TOPIC, THE HOLY SPIRIT.

AND YOU SAY THE MOST IGNORED

PERSON IN THE WORLD.

WHY DO YOU SAY THAT?

WELL, HE WAS SENT BY

JESUS.

HE CHANGED HIS RELATIONSHIP

WITH THE DICIPLES BY SAYING

I NO LONGER CALLED YOU SLAVES.

I CALL YOU FRIENDS.

HE SAYS I'M GOING TO SEND

YOU SOMEBODY ELSE THAT IS

JUST LIKE ME TO RELATE TO

YOU.

BECAUSE HE ESTABLISHED

HIMSELF AS A FRIEND TO HIS

DICIPLES, THE HOLY GHOST

WILL COME TO BE A FRIEND TO

US.

THAT WAS HUGE FOR ME.

I LOOKED AT WHAT HE COULD

DO, BUT I NEVER REALLY SPENT

TIME CULTIVATING A

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM LIKE I

WOULD A FRIEND.

SO I'M KIND OF USING HIM

RATHER THAN RELATING TO

HIM.

AND THAT'S HUGE.

A LOT OF CHRISTIANS DON'T

EVEN KNOW THAT THE HOLY

SPIRIT IS FOR THEM.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

IT IS LIKE THEY SAY, I

ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS MY

LORD AND SAVIOR, AND THEY

CONFESS WITH THEIR MOUTH AND

LIAR THAT' -- AND THEIR

HEART, BUT THEY DON'T WALK

WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.

IF A FRIEND COMES OVER

YOUR HOUSE EVERY DAY, THE

NEIGHBORS WOULD SAY, DOESN'T

THAT PERSON HAVE A HOME?

BUT THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE

ONLY PERSON WHO COMES TO

STAY.

WE'RE SUPPOSED TO CULTIVATE

INTIMACY WITH HIM SO WE CAN

GET TO KNOW JESUS.

BECAUSE HE IS THE PERSON

JESUS SAYS HE IS GOING TO

TAKE OF MIND AND SHOW IT TO

HIM.

PEOPLE MAY KNOW THE LETTER

OF SCRIPTURE, MAY READ THE

SCRIPTURE, BUT THE PERSON OF

SCRIPTURE HAS TO BE REVEALED

BY THE HOLY GHOST.

HOW DO WE GROW WITH THE

HOLY GHOST?

HOW DO WE GROW WITH THE HOLY

SPIRIT?

WHEN I REALIZED THIS, HE

IS THE ONE WITH ALL OF THE

ANSWERS.

SO I STARTED TO SAY, WHERE

DID HE SHOW UP IN THE BIBLE?

WHAT WAS HE DID THERE?

WHAT IS HE SHOWING ME TODAY?

AND HOW DOES IT RELATE TO ME

TODAY?

THOSE FOUR THINGS ARE HUGE.

GIVE ME SOME OF THE

ANSWERS.

EVERYWHERE HE SHOWS UP,

WE HAVE TO LOOK AT IN TERMS

OF JUST BIBLICAL

INTERPRETATION, WHAT WAS THE

SCENE ALL ABOUT.

THE EARTH WAS OUT IN A VOID,

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THE

SPIRIT OF GOD MOVES.

SO HE THEN BECOMES THE

ANSWER TO THE VOID AND THE

EMPTINESS THAT WAS ON THE

EARTH.

SO LATER ON WE UNDERSTOOD

THAT HE CAME WITH THE POWER

TO MANIFEST WHATEVER THE

WORD DECLARES.

SO THEREFORE THE WORD, WHICH

IS JESUS, AND THE SPIRIT

WORK TOGETHER.

SO FATHER -- GOD THE FATHER

IS OVER THE OPERATION.

JESUS IS OVER THE

ADMINISTRATION, AND THE HOLY

GHOST IS OVER THE

MANIFESTATIONS.

SO THEREFORE HE IS THE ONE,

WHEN WE START LOOKING TO

WHAT GOD WANTS TO DO ON

EARTH, HE IS THE PERSON THAT

MAKES IT ALL HAPPEN.

HE IS THE GREATEST RESOURCE

PERSON ON THE EARTH BECAUSE

HE IS THE ONE THAT BRINGS TO

PASS WHAT JESUS HAS

DECLARED.

SO I WANT TO KNOW, WHAT DID

YOU DO?

SO YOU LOOK AT CREATION, AND

THEN YOU LOOK AT MARY AND

THE CONCEPTION, THAT GABLE

SPOKE TO HER.

AND THEN IT SAYS, AND THE

HOLY GHOST CAME UPON HER.

AND JESUS GETS BAPTIZED BY

JOHN, AND IT SAYS "AND THE

SPIRIT OF GOD COMES UPON

HIM."

AND THE THEN THE HOLY GHOST

LEADS HIM.

WHO RAISED HIM FROM THE

DEAD?

THE HOLY GHOST.

AND THEN GOD SAYS, I'M GOING

TO SEND HIM DOWN HERE FOR

YOU.

AND I SAID, WOW, WHEN I LOOK

AT ALL OF THE STUFF HE DID

IN HISTORY, AND WHAT HIS

ASSIGNMENT IS, AND THEN THE

POWER THAT IS BEHIND HIM, I

SAID, WOW, HOW CAN I IGNORE

SOMEBODY LIKE THAT.

WHEN I LOOK AT ADAM, HIS

STINT WITH HIS WIFE -- HE

WAS IGNORING.

AND YOU LOOK AT THE AVERAGE

MAN WHO SAYS, I DON'T

UNDERSTAND MY WIFE.

YOU'RE IGNORING HER.

WHEN I LOOKED AT JESUS AND

THE HOLY GHOST, I REALIZED

I'VE BEEN IGNORING HIM.

SO YOU KNOW WHAT I DID?

I REPENTED.

I'M SO SORRY THAT I IGNORED

YOU.

I'M SORRY YOU WERE SENT HERE

AND YOU'VE BEEN A FAITHFUL

FRIEND AND I'VE BEEN THE

UNRELIABLE AND UNFAITHFUL

ONE.

WHAT DID YOU DO TO HELP

THAT RELATIONSHIP.

SO YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH

THE LORD WENT FROM HERE TO

HERE.

FIRST OF ALL, ADMIT WHERE

I WAS.

SECONDLY, I DON'T PRAY TO

HIM, BUT I CERTAINLY CAN

COMMUNICATE TO HIM AND TALK

TO HIM.

AND THIRDLY, I STARTED DOING

WHAT HE SAID.

THE INDICATORS.

AND IT WASN'T INS

INSTANTANEOUS, LIKE INSTANT

GRITS, BECAUSE I KNOW IN

THIS COUNTRY IT IS INSTANT.

I KNEW I NEEDED TO START

TALKING TO HIM, AND SEEING

WHAT COMES TO PASS AFTER

OBEYING HIM.

AND I FIND HE STARTED

TELLING ME WHAT I LOOK LIKE

IN THE FACE OF JESUS.

I STARTED GROWING AND SEEING

MORE IN SCRIPTURE.

IT STARTED OPENING UP TRUTH

TO ME LIKE I NEVER SAW.

IT IS ALL ABOUT "THE HOLY

GHOST IS MY FRIEND," THE

BISHOP BOONE'S NEW BOOK.

IT IS AVAILABLE WHEREVER

BOOKS ARE SOLD.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING

HERE.
