Bring It On: Witnessing

Can you please tell me why many people refer to the Holy Spirit as the Holy Ghost? I have done some research, and to me this is totally incorrect. I can never refer to the Holy Spirit as the Holy Ghost. How do you know when it's the right time ... Read Transcript


Terry: SUSIE WRITES AND

SAYS, "CAN YOU PLEASE TELL

ME WHY MANY PEOPLE REFER TO

THE HOLY SPIRIT AS THE HOLY

GHOST.

I HAVE DONE SOME RESEARCH

AND TO ME THIS IS TOTALLY

INCORRECT.

I CAN NEVER REFER TO THE

HOLY SPIRIT AS THE HOLY

GHOSHOLEHOLY GHOST?"

Pat: IN EELIZABETHAN

ENGLAND, TRANSFERRED, THE

HOLY SPIRIT IS THE HOLY

GHOST.

YOU'RE EXACTLY RIGHT.

PREACHERS HAVE PREACHED

SERMONS ON THE DIFFERENCE.

THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE.

Terry: BUT IT IS AN

OLDER TERM.

I THINK WHEN THE CAS

CHARISMATIC MOVEMENT CAME

ALONG, THE TERM SPIRIT

BECAME USED.

Pat: IN THE KING JAMES,

HOLY GHOST.

THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE.

YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

Terry: THIS IS MIA WHO

SAYS, "HOW DO YOU KNOW IT IS

THE RIGHT TIME TO WITNESS TO

AN UNBELIEVER?"

Pat: THE SPIRIT BEARS

WITNESS WITHIN YOU.

THE ONE THING WE DON'T WANT

TO DO IS GRIND THE GEESE

GEARS WITH NO LUBRICATING

OIL.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE

ANOINTING OIL OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

WHEN THAT IS PRESENT, THERE

WILL BE RECEPTIVETY.

THESE PEOPLE WHO SAY YOU'RE

SAVED, BROTHER -- YOU TALK

ABOUT A TURNOFF, IT IS

TERRIBLE.

THEY SAY THEY'RE OUT

WITNESSING.

YOU'RE NOT OUT WITNESSING.

YOU'RE BEATING PEOPLE UP.

Terry: I REMEMBER

BEFORE I BECAME A BELIEVER,

PEOPLE WOULD COME UP AND DO

THAT TO ME AND I HATED IT.

Pat: OF COURSE.

BUT ANOINTING -- HOW DO YOU

KNOW WHEN THERE IS OIL IN

YOUR GEAR BOX?

I MEAN, YOU JUST HAVE TO

KNOW.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO

TELL YOU.

YOU JUST SENSE THE MOVE OF

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

AND YOU NEED TO HAVE OIL IN

YOUR LAMP, IN A SENSE.

WHAT ELSE?

Terry: THIS IS JENA WHO

SAYS, "I KNOW THAT GOD HAS A

PLAN FOR OUR LIVES, BUT HOW

CAN I FIGURE OUT WHAT MY

CALLING IS.

I DON'T FEEL LIKE I'M

GETTING ANY DIRECTION FROM

GOD WHEN I ASK.

I REALLY DON'T KNOW WHAT TO

DO WITH MY LIFE AND I DON'T

WANT TO MAKE THE WRONG

CHOICE."

Pat: ALL RIGHT,

DARLING, WHAT DO YOU LIKE

DOING?

WHEN YOU WERE FIVE YEARS

OLD, WHEN YOU WERE SEVEN OR

EIGHT, WHAT DID YOU LIKE TO

DO?

DID YOU LIKE TO RUN?

DID YOU LIKE TO PLAY GAMES?

DID YOU LIKE TO SPELL OR

READ?

THAT WILL HELP YOU GO

FORWARD.

GOD MADE YOU TO ENJOY DOING

WHAT HE WANTS YOU TO DO.

SO DON'T LOOK FOR SOME

STRANGE MAN TESTTATION

MANIFESTATION FROM

OUTERSPACE.

ASK GOD WHAT DESIRE HAVE YOU

PLACED IN ME AND WORK IT

OUT.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM JEREMIAH 17:

"BLESSED IS THE MAN WHO

TRUSTS IN THE LORD AND WHO'S

HOPE IS IN JEHOVAH."

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW,

AND MAY THE LORD GIVE YOU A

GREAT DAY.

BYE-BYE.

[APPLAUSE]
