Understanding and Using the Gifts of the Holy Spirit

Presented by Rev. Tim Sullivan

IN THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT, formerly titled "The Weapons of Our Warfare", is a comprehensive seminar (and book) that will assist you in understanding and using the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit.

What is it about?

This class is a presentation of the Biblical precepts to walking in the power of God's might.

The book of Hebrews contains a stern warning to the people of God:

Hebrews 4:1:
Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.

Here, a Christian's "entering into [God's] rest" is equated to Israel's entering into the Promised Land. There is only one valid explanation for falling short:

Hebrews 3:19:
So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

The Israelites failed by reason of unbelief. But what did they fail to believe? They did not believe God would help them defeat their adversaries. Therefore, they feared facing them on their own and would not enter the Promised Land. They failed because they trusted in their own might and not in the power of God.

Ephesians 6:10:
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

God does not want you to be a strong Christian. God wants you to be strong in him, and in the power of his might. That is what the gifts of the Spirit are for – they grant you access to the Lord's strength. And this is the goal of Rev. Sullivan's class – to teach you how to be strong in the Lord and walk IN THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT. Through sound biblical instruction coupled with his own experiences, you will be led into a greater understanding and use of the gifts of the Spirit.

Clear and complete answers are given to such questions as:

  • What are the scriptural guidelines to understanding the Word of God?
  • Why does man need to be saved? Saved from what?
  • If God is loving and all-powerful, why do so many people suffer in this world?
  • What is the new birth? What does it mean to be "born again"?
  • What is the "armour of God"? How do you put in on?
  • How does it benefit a Christian to speak in tongues?
  • How can we know the difference between true prophecy and the mere words of man?
  • How can we "walk by the Spirit"?
  • How does the devil deceive us?
  • How can a person get more faith?
  • Why does God ordain miracles?
  • Is the power to heal the sick and cast out devils still available to Christians?

This seminar has been presented in countries around the world from the Swiss Alps to the Maasai villages of Tanzania. Christians from diverse denominational backgrounds have left behind the frustration of trying to manage their problems and have entered into the rest known to those who live IN THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT.
