“One” by Bishop Chris Paul
The Godhead and Gospel were a mystery prior to Jesus revealing himself to his disciples and their subsequent preaching of Him and it. Comprehending the truth of the Godhead is essential to the doctrine of the Bible. The truth of the Oneness of God is indispensable as historically monotheism is the very first thing the children of Israel are taught from ancient times to this very day. Deuteronomy 6:4 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord”
We are dealing with the souls of men and women who will spend eternity somewhere forever. Therefore, the most important part of your service is THE ALTAR CALL! The call to alter someone’s life. It is or should be the climax and pinnacle of the entire church service.
For us to be effective altar workers and have an effective altar service, there are two very basic ideologies that must be established. First is God’s anxiousness or His apprehensiveness. Understand that when someone receives the Holy Ghost, they haven’t overcome God’s willingness to give it but rather they have received his gracious gift. The Bible is very precise that the Holy Ghost is indeed a gift. Inferring that purchase and payment has been made by another. Secondly, we must look at the candidate’s hunger. Make no mistake that unrepented and undecided people are a major restricting factor for someone to receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost. You simply cannot pray folks through to the Holy Ghost that don’t want it! You cannot pray folks through to the Holy Ghost that have not repented!
