“The Promise Of The Father”

Key Verse

  “And behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with the power from on high” (Luke 24:49).

Text — Luke 24:49-53


The desire of our Lord, Jesus Christ is to replicate Himself in all believing youth. He desires to empower them to be fully useful for the kingdom work in effectively preaching soul saving good news to all sinners through the power of the Holy Ghost. .

How can you receive this promise? Oswald J. Smith wrote, “God will never pour out His Spirit on the flesh. Sin and spirituality cannot co-exist. The Holy Spirit will not occupy a dirty heart.” The Bible therefore says, “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out” (Acts 3:19). After this, then you take the next step of praying for the possession of a pure heart (Psalm 24:3-4). 

Finally, receive this promised power by waiting upon the Lord in earnest prayer. “…wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you” (Acts 1:4,8). As you pray with all your heart by faith, you will experience this promise (Acts 2:1-4).


Take the next step of praying


Be holy and pray to receive the promise
