Baptism In The Spirit - CD or DVD
Baptism In The Spirit
Father’s Teaching was given at the National Shrine of the Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, MA during a Life in the Spirit Retreat in 2017 the year of the 50th Anniversary of the Charismatic Renewal. Baptism in the Holy Spirit brings Jesus and a relationship to Jesus and the reality of Jesus. Know Him in your heart, know Him in your soul, in your spirit. Have a personal relationship with Him. Jesus is the center. The Spirit of Jesus is the Spirit who is the life giver. In Him is life and healing is life. Baptism in the Holy Spirit brings Jesus and then Jesus brings the Fruits of the Spirit and the Gifts of the Spirit. The Gifts of the power of the Spirit are poured out and Jesus is glorified and shared.

Spirit of Truth - CD or DVD
Spirit of Truth -Father’s Teaching was given at the National Shrine of the Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, MA during a Life in the Spirit Retreat in 2018.
Everyone can receive the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of Truth is poured out on everyone and everyone can receive gifts of the Holy Spirit. God is our Father and wants us to be in a relationship with Him as His children. Receive the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth and love in your heart. Know always that Jesus takes away the sins of the world and that we are not blocked in any way from having a relationship with Him. Jesus is the Lord and there is no other.
He brings salvation to the world because He brings about the forgiveness of sin. He brings us into relationship with God. See Jesus, see the Father. He brings us the Holy Spirit, which is the consolation and peace and in His name we minister and function. Everything is done in the name of Jesus. Jesus says “come to me”. We don’t have to go looking. The Baptism in the Spirit is the light of truth and it shows us the importance, the essence of the Gospel, and the essence of the Gospel is Jesus. The Lord sends out His spirit and enkindles in us the fire of His love and renews the face of the earth. Receive the Spirit of Truth and with love in your heart be on fire for Jesus.
