69SFCD3-7 - Derek Prince - SALVATION (THE CROSS) AND THE HOLY SPIRIT - DONATION $4.00 - Christianity is a religion of experience not theory based on the historical fact of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The resurrection is one of the best attested facts in human history. This message is about the experience of the baptism in the Holy Spirit and the new birth. On the cross Jesus took all the evil due the sinner that the believer might receive all the good due Jesus, the Son of God - a perfect substitutionary work. Derek relates his divine healing experience while in the service during WWII and quotes a missionary's work -consider the work of Calvary a perfect work, perfect in every respect, perfect in every aspect. This is the truth to be experienced. John 19:30 - it is finished, II Cor 5:21 - made sin, Isa 64:6 - filthy rags. Derek next relates "a New Birth experience" as pictured in John 20:22 and Rom 10:8-10 similar to the making of Adam and goes on to relate the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. John 7:39 - fulfill-ment, as the Gift of the Holy Spirit - I Cor 6:19 - Derek shares "experiences", intended by God, happening in the world today to people everywhere. Before closing, Derek explains how to enter into salvation and the baptism in the Holy Spirit: 1. Are you thirsty? 2. Let Him come unto Me - John 6:37. 3. Drink, receive, breathe in - taking in that which is offered. You cannot pray and receive at the same time. Breathe in from Christ; a mouthful turns into a miracle. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. You have to yield to the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:4 is the pattern; divine and human cooperation. Luke 11:13 - if you ask for the right thing you will not get the wrong thing. Your Spirit is infinitely wiser than your mind. The baptism of the Holy Spirit dethrones your intellect. With regard to speaking in tongues, Derek quotes a brother, "you cannot do it without Him and He will not do it without you." In closing Derek prays and calls for all desiring to receive Jesus and the Holy Spirit to repeat the pray he prays, come forward and then the river flowed.
