You MUST receive the Holy Spirit - Pastor Kim, Yong Do

2011. 2. 4 (second service)
 Acts 2:1-4 AND WHEN the day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all assembled together in one place,2When suddenly there came a sound from heaven like the rushing of a violent tempest blast, and it filled the whole house in which they were sitting.3And there appeared to them tongues resembling fire, which were separated and distributed and which settled on each one of them.4And they were all filled (diffused throughout their souls) with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other (different, foreign) languages (tongues), as the Spirit kept giving them clear and loud expression [in each tongue in appropriate words].

Acts 1:7-8                                                                                                     
7He said to them, It is not for you to become acquainted with and know what time brings [the things and events of time and their definite periods] or fixed years and seasons (their critical niche in time), which the Father has appointed (fixed and reserved) by His own choice and authority and personal power. 8But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth.

Within the food chain, there is a “natural enemy” in the ecosystem. In order to prevent a particular animal from reproducing infinitely, God created a natural enemy to control the number of animals on the earth. He created a natural enemy for all living creatures except man to balance and be in harmony with the natural world.

In the spiritual realm, Christians have a natural enemy as well. An obstructive relationship is formed with the evil spirits. The evil spirits drag and throw ambiguous souls who do not know God to the bottomless pit of hell. God has given me a mission to expose the operations of hell. For this mission, I had to first learn how to tolerate and endure the pain of my physical body. As the demons traverse around the world like as if it is their house, do you know how many Christians are being legally deceived and deluded by the demons?

DO YOU KNOW WHO FEEDS THE DEMONS? IT IS US WHO FEEDS THEM. We commit sin and open the pathway for demons to legally come in to us. But then, we blame all the wrong doings on the demons and we give all kind of excuses. If you have a spirit of anger that particular spirit will prompt you to get angry. But instead of suppressing that moment of anger, if you decide to burst out in anger, you have just fed the spirit of anger in you. Demons are like parasites. They live in us as they feed on us. Do you have a spirit of lust? Then you must know that if you think of lustful thoughts and perform lustful behavior, you are now feeding the spirit of lust. Do not blame your actions on the devil or demons. YOU MUST UTILIZE EVERY EFFORT AND UTILIZE ALL OF YOUR STRENGTH TO CRUCIFY ALL OF YOUR DISPOSITION AND DESIRES OF THE FLESH ON THE CROSS! You must be broken! You must be fully changed!

The churches gather together and do bible studies. They do disciple training and through this process they also raise seminary students. There are too many churches and pastors only teaching salvation and how it is easily obtained. BUT SALVATION IS NOT SO EASILY OBTAINED! They would use scripture such as Romans 10:10 For with the heart a person believes (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Christ) and so is justified (declared righteous, acceptable to God), and with the mouth he confesses (declares openly and speaks out freely his faith) and confirms [his] salvation.” There will be no one who cannot be saved if we only have to confess it with our mouth the Lord is our Savior once in our life time. When I had visited hell, I witnessed the countless number of Christians who were in the bottomless pit of hell.

Please read Galatians 5:20-21, Idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, JEALOUSY, anger (ill temper), selfishness, divisions (dissensions), party spirit (factions, sects with peculiar opinions, heresies), Envy, drunkenness, carousing, and the like. I warn you beforehand, just as I did previously, that those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. How can it be clearer than this that they cannot inherit the kingdom of God? This explains the condition of Christians who cannot enter heaven. We must always check ourselves. Are we in any of those conditions? There are too many Christians who have falsely secured themselves with salvation after they had just and only confessed the Lord is their Savior. But that is very wrong. They think salvation is so easy.

YOU AND I MUST GO BEFORE GOD DAILY WITH A TREMBLING REVERENT HEART FOR YOUR SALVATION. In my past experience with the Lord, when the Lord showed me different churches, He compliments certain churches by saying, “Ah! I’m so pleased, I am very pleased~” But when He looked at the other churches, I see the wrath in His eyes; I saw the flaming fire from the Lord’s eyes.

One time, a African girl was invited to one of the churches in America. She was gifted with spiritual eyes. She was able to witness what was going on in the spiritual realm. As she came up on the church pulpit to give her testimony, she became frozen. As she held the microphone with one hand she could not speak a word. The people in the church gazed at her face. The African girl had a fearful facial expression. She was trembling!! The pastor of the church asked her why she wouldn’t speak; she then barely opened her mouth.

When she came up to the church pulpit, the Lord showed her a scene and it shocked her, and she became afraid. Oh my brethren, can you even guess what she had saw? The faces of people in the church all had faces of wolves. When those church people got together, they were busy back biting and slandering one another. They would gather within their own sub groups and cause divisions. They all even acted like wolves as if they were looking for a prey to tear down. The Lord then showed the other part of the church members. The other part of the church members had a face of a pig. Those people only knew about their possession such as money. They were greedy for money. This is the look of the modern church! Our churches are in a big danger!

The Lord commanded had me to thoroughly keep Sundays Holy with proper tithing. In today times, the pastors and their congregations throughout most churches freely spend money on Sundays to entertain themselves. They spend for their luxury and to please themselves. They dine out and go shopping on the Lord’s Day. Please read Matthew 5:17, “Do not think that I have come to do away with or undo the Law or the Prophets; I have come not to do away with or undo but to complete and fulfill them.”

I have witnessed a countless number of Christians being thrown into the pit of hell. I do not care if anyone tells me that I’m in a cult. I would be more than happy to be called a cult if people do not have to go to hell.

Keeping Sundays holy with proper tithing is not a just a law but it is a commandment! God in fact came not to undo the law but to fulfill them. Even if we cast out demons and manifest God’s power, if we break the law (10 commandment), we will end up in hell. Please read Matthew 7:23, “And then I will say to them openly (publicly), I never knew you; depart from Me, you who act wickedly [disregarding My commands].” He commanded them to depart from Him! It does not matter how beautifully one confesses their faith to God. If our confessions are not assisted by God, then our confessions are only human creed.

Look at Peter. (John 13:37) He confessed passionately to the Lord that He will lay down his life for the Lord. But remember, even before the Lord was actually crucified on the cross, he denied Him three times. A confession without the Holy Spirit’s help is only human creed. After Jesus was crucified on the cross, Peter was devastated. He went back to his home town to be a fisherman once again. Since Peter was a central leader among the other disciples, when Peter was shaken by devastation, the other disciples also went back to their home town as well.

So then the Lord came to Peter. After He had prepared lunch, He asked Peter three times, “The son of John Simon, do you love me?” Even though Peter denied the Lord three times, He did not rebuke Peter but instead He checked his love for Him. But Jesus already knew Peter’s heart. He was asking Peter that ‘Peter! Do you possess the faith in you that I can work with?’

Even though Peter had denied the Lord three times, the next step was waiting for Peter. The day of Pentecost was waiting for him. The incident when thousands of people had repented through Peter after he was full of the Holy Spirit. The Lord was asking, ‘just because you had denied Me, how long will you be in self pity? You must go and feed my sheep!’. So what should we do? We must come before the Lord and we must be on our knees! The next step is waiting for us. You must not wander around between the day of Pentecost and the day of resurrection.

What would the Lord say about the modern churches who have made the churches into cafés and a sports center? He would say, ‘why would you stubbornly keep such a service in which I will not manifest Myself  or My work?’ THE ECCENCE OF THE CHURCH IS TO OVERCOME THE POWER OF HELL! The Church must be a church where people can spiritually live righteously, and be changed through prayer. But in these last days, the people go to the church to rest and relax. The church is now perverted into the place to hold meetings of their pleasure. It has become a bazaar place. If the humanistic pastors capture the church, the essence of the church will become dim. They will all go under and perish.

Your family can be blessed if you act and move yourself first. You must start first. The word of the Lord must be pierced into your heart. You must be changed first. In order to receive the power of the Holy Spirit, you must prepare yourself. Even though the Holy Spirit lives in you, He will not do the things that you have to do or required to do. You must pray. You must change. These things are the things YOU must do. When you try and you put in all of your effort, God will grant you strength to perform and overcome. God will not touch our freewill. God did not make us into robots. God respects our freewill as much as possible. The moment we believe onto Jesus our Lord, we instantly became spiritual soldier and we have to engage into the spiritual battle ground. The test is now waiting for us.

The moment we believe in Jesus, the trials, tribulation and tests will be waiting for us. As you go spiritually go deeper, the stronger test will also come. If you are not prepared to go through discipline, you will not be able to receive the power of the Holy Spirit. If you receive the power of the Holy Spirit, you will be witnessing Jesus Christ to people without hesitation. You will become bold. You will be able to boldly preach the gospel even at the places where there is a presence of absolute (negative) force. But current day Christians have lost their identity. If we cannot handle and fulfill the mission as a Christian, how can we enter into heaven?

There must always be the devil’s blood on our swords. We must have his blood on our Holy sword of word and prayer. We must bear the fruit of the Holy Spirit which is “Love”, “Joy”, “Peace”, “Patience”, “Kindness”, “Goodness”, “Faithfulness”, “Gentleness”, “and “Self-control”. The churches and individuals must prepare thoroughly in order to receive the power of Holy Spirit. But if our character is not changed, even if God granted us the power of the Holy Spirit, it is more likely to be perverted (degenerated). Even though you receive the gifts, there is a possibility for you of going to hell.

Unless we resemble the Lord’s character who loved us unto the death of the cross, all the gifts we receive will be only in vain. By the grace of God, even after a person received the power of the Holy Spirit and if a person’s character still does not resemble Jesus Christ, that person is a fake! I witnessed so many people in hell who had visited heaven by the grace of God, they had received the gift of prophecy, spiritual insight, a gift of healing and all other types of gifts but they ended up in hell.

After we received the power of the Holy Spirit, if we use it to earn money or use our gifts to judge and condemn others, I know where that person is heading when he dies. We must claim the promise of God which is in the bible. We must claim it as ours and we must target the promise of God. We must grab His promise into our palm. Please, create the circumstances, Lord. If you pray for the condition or circumstances which God can work, it will be created.

In the early Church, even though they classified saints by their position, all of them possessed the same power of God. All the people at the Lord’s church (South Korea) are all Fire ministers. In the book of Joel 2:29, “Even upon the menservants and upon the maidservants in those days will I pour out My Spirit.” After Jesus was ascended to heaven, He promised to send Holy Spirit. In order to receive the Holy Spirit, they must not leave the Jerusalem.

We must have victory over our desires of the flesh and we must struggle to live according to the word of God. This way, the condition which God can work in us will be created. In order to be filled with the Holy Spirit, we must put down which we used to depend on and maked our decisions. Read Acts 19:2, “And he asked them, Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed [on Jesus as the Christ]? And they said, No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.”

Those two disciples knew gospel but did not know about the Holy Spirit. Even though we know scripture, if we do not claim it as ours and experience it, all the work of the Holy Spirit in the book is irrelevant to us. In order to experience the power of the Holy Spirit, we must claim it with our prayer before God. When are we desperate for the Light? When it is most dark. If you do God’s work without the power of the Holy Spirit, your work will be vague and will stray from the core. You must accurately discern your problem which you are facing now. You must cling on to the core. In order to see through the core, you must be filled with Holy Spirit.

When Elijah brought the Fire from heaven, what was the fire burning on? Water caught the Fire. The impossible was then possible. The Holy Fire dried and sucked up the water. Fire will not come down on an empty alter. You must become a sacrifice in order for the Holy Fire to engulf us. You must become a sacrificial offering in our work places and businesses. We must have a whole hearted dedication of sacrifice.

Even though this is the age of Holy Spirit’s unlimited power, it looks like His power has been exhausted. Brethrens, the forces of demons are unlimitedly multiplying; people who believe in Jesus can’t even properly receive the power of Holy Spirit and be multiplied! You must powerfully pray in faith. Do not boast your faith just with your mere word, but you must observe within yourself if God’s power is practically being manifested in and from you! Whatever you do, do it with love of the Lord.

In order to understand the supreme order or counsel of Jesus, you must receive the Holy Spirit. When you have properly received the power of the Holy Spirit, the proper vision (your mission) will be given to you by God. When we are baptize by the power of Holy Spirit, we can become the Lord’s witness and will go to Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and to the end of the land. We are God’s living vessel. We must receive the power of Holy Spirit so that we can powerfully spread out gospel.

When we cry out in prayer with faith, the Holy Spirit will lead us into the deeper part of the spiritual realm and will pour down the power. I pray that you will unceasingly pray with endurance. Amen.

  1. Pastor Kim, I love your article. Thank you for writing it. I have experienced the baptism of water for the forgiveness of sins. I believe I received the holy spirit when I came up from the waters of baptism. I do agree with you and believe in obedience to the scriptures especially sin scriptures such as Galatians 5, Ephesians 5, Colossians 3, Revelations 21, Mark 7... I believe in confession of sins and repentance because I am not perfect and will sin even as I do my best to obey the scriptures. I would love for God to pour His Holy Spirit of fire in me. I feel like I don't know my place in the Church or mission besides simply living the scriptures. I do have insight when I'm in His Word, but I don't have the gifts. I want more.
