It’s Time to Grow Up!

It's Time to Grow UpBy Kenneth E. Hagin

Growing up is a process. No one is born fully grown. Everyone comes into the world as an infant and progresses through different developmental stages until he reaches adulthood. The same is true when you become born again. It doesn’t matter how old you are physically. When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you are a spiritual babe in Christ, and you must learn to grow in the things of God.


‘It Won’t Take Me Long To Receive!’

Long to ReceiveBy Kenneth E. Hagin

Once I had decided that the baptism in the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues was as much for me as it had been for Jesus’ early disciples, I went right over to the Full Gospel parsonage and told the pastor that I wanted that experience. And he told me to wait.


How Important Is Speaking in Tongues?

How Important is Speaking in Tongues?By Kenneth E. Hagin

There is more to being filled with the Holy Ghost than speaking in tongues, but tongues are an important and inte­gral part of receiving the Holy Ghost, since they are the initial evidence of the infilling of the Holy Spirit (see Acts 2:4). Also, speaking in tongues is an integral part of the believer’s devo­tional prayer life, for as the Apostle Paul said, “I thank my God, I speak with tongues . . .” (1 Cor. 14:18). I, too, can say with Paul, “I thank my God I speak with tongues.”


Have a Song in Your Heart

Have a Song in Your HeartBy Kenneth E. Hagin

And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

—Ephesians 5:18–21

In writing to the church at Ephesus, Paul encouraged the believers to “. . . be filled with the Spirit.” We see in Acts chapter 19 that the believers in the church at Ephesus had already been filled with Spirit.


Growing Up, Spiritually

Growing Up, SpirituallyBy Kenneth E. Hagin


8  Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.

9  (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?

10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)

11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:


14 THAT WE HENCEFORTH BE NO MORE CHILDREN, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

15 But speaking the truth in love, MAY GROW UP into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.

Evidently, Paul didn’t consider the Church at Ephesus to be grown up, for he said, “But speaking the truth in love, MAY GROW UP. . .” (v. 15). And in verse 13, he said, “Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto A PERFECT MAN . . . .”


Godly Guidance

Godly Guidance

By Rev. Kenneth E. Hagin

Too often, we seek guidance every other way except the way God said it was to come. We judge by our physical senses, but nowhere in the Bible does God say He will guide us by our senses. Or, we often look at things from a mental standpoint. But God said, “The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord…” (Prov. 20:27), which means that God will guide us through our spirit.


Feed on the Word

Godly GuidanceBy Kenneth W. Hagin

You can distinguish your spirit from your soul and become sensitive to God’s leading in your spirit by renewing your mind—by continually feeding it with God’s Word (Rom. 12:2).


The Dividing of Soul and Spirit

Open BibleBy Kenneth W. Hagin

Are you having trouble distinguishing between the voice of your re-created spirit and the voice of your soul? Your spirit and soul are two different entities, but only God’s Word can separate the two. As you begin renewing your mind with God’s Word, you will position yourself to follow your heart—your spirit—with confidence in every situation of life!


Finding Your Place

BoatBy Rev. Kenneth E. Hagin

I don’t know a lot about the anointing of the pastor even though I pastored about twelve years. You might say, “Well, you pastored — you ought to know.” I would have to reply, “That wasn’t my office.” I did function in that office temporarily as God permitted me to, but I didn’t have the anointing to pastor. It’s a different anointing. It’s the same Spirit, but a different anointing.


Heeding God's Voice

By Rev. Lynette Hagin

Oklahoma has what many refer to as “storm season.” We often hear the local warning siren, alerting us to impending storms in the area. These storms can quickly evolve into tornadoes that destroy everything in their path.


Becoming Spirit Conscious in a Physical World

EarthBy Rev. Kenneth E. Hagin

In a time when people are searching for answers, children of God can rest assured of getting the right answers. While others turn to false religions, psychics, or friends for guidance, the Spirit of God will lead us. But in order to be led by the Spirit, we must learn to be more spirit conscious.
