Something For Your Spirit
Tom Burgess The Journey
A long time customer over my 23 years at Lexus of Memphis has become a great friend that I share our faith in God with. He asked me last year if I would be one of 72 men from Memphis that has shared their life's journey with men all over the world. My immediate answer was "YES".
The intent of the interviews is to let young and aged men know that in spite of lifes issues and uncertanties, you can and will make it. I hope you will enjoy my journey.

Acts 1:4 & 8...
Acts 1:4 KJV...And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. 8...but ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Acts 2:1 KJV And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 4...And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
We are still in the season of Pentecost, I have been praying that you dared yourself to become endowed with God's Power from on high...The Holy Ghost. This message is to help you remain focused with your brothers and sisters in Christ with His Gift to empower you as never before. The Power Of Togetherness with The Holy Ghost is an unbeatable force and needed for you to witness to those who need Jesus.
Notice in the book of Acts the reference of unity with POWER. There is nothing like being on one accord (tho some use togetherness for destructive purposes), God's intent is together taking His Word and POWER to win souls for His kingdom.
After being filled with The Holy Ghost, Peter preached Jesus Christ to men and women from all over the then known world and 3,000 joined the Church (Acts 2:41). Acts 2:46 KJV...And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 47...Praising God, and having favor with all people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
Acts Chapter 3 finds Peter and John together into the temple for prayer when they meet a lame man from birth begging for alms (money). They tell him they have none but they have a name and tells the man "in The Name Of Jesus Christ Of Nazareth" rise up and walk. Not only does he walk but is walking, leaping and praising God. Acts chapter 4 finds Peter and John arrested by the church folks...(the Sadducee's) and Peter filled with The Holy Ghost preaches again beginning in verse 8. By the time he gets to verse 32...And the multitude of the believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things in common. 33...And with great POWER gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.
Satan's grip is strong, many believers are compromising and twisting God's truth so they can fit in with the crowd and find nothing wrong with what they are doing. The Holy Ghost is a convicting POWER making those who's intent to misuse it insignificant and powerless while the ones who have been anointed prosper in ministry. The Holy Ghost gives the powerless POWER. It can not be bought (Acts 8:9-25) and those who He resides in change the world. Together (strength in number) on one accord (everyone focused on one thing) with The Holy Ghost makes those who had been fearful...fearless. Makes the meek and mild bold. And will keep you focused on God's purpose for you and not your own.
Lastly, there is obedience to The Holy Spirit and what He leads you to do. Your hunger to do whatever God say's will leave people wondering how do I get this. When you witness to them about Jesus and they accept Him as their Lord and Saviour, The Holy Spirit will tell you...well done and your life will never be the same. That my friends is a good thing.
God Bless you all and Thank You Lord for Your Word.
