Walk of the Spirit

07 Oct Let’s Get Personal

In reading through the Bible, there are many, many promises that are what I call "general" promises. In other words, they are "everybody" promises. We see these with the scriptures that use words like "whosoever", "all" and "every one". But, in addition to the "general" promises, there are some very specific promises, ones that I call "me" or "personal" promises.  Here are just a few scriptures that list God's promises concerning my personal relationship with the Holy Spirit ...

23 Sep Facebook Quotable Quotes – A Collection

Just in case you've missed a recent blog post, for the past few weeks, I have borrowed an idea from Mary Poppins and shared “a few of my favorite things”. I'm referring to some of my favorite posts from my Billy Burns Ministries Facebook page. Three weeks ago, I shared a few of the Holy Spirit Realities that appear each Tuesday. Two weeks ago, I shared several of the Benefits of Speaking in Other Tongues that are published each Thursday. Last week, I shared a compilation of what I call Billyisms (things that only my brain would think of) that I post each Wednesday. This week, I want to share a few of the quotes that I have posted on Mondays. These quotes are presented to fan the flames of your passion for the Person and work of the Holy Spirit. In these posts, I share the picture of one of my spiritual heroes and a powerful quote from that man/woman of God. Here are just a few of my favorite quotes ...

16 Sep Facebook Billyisms – A Compilation

Knowing that not everyone sees every post published on my Billy Burns Ministries Facebook page, I decided a few weeks ago to share some of its highlights. First, a couple of weeks ago, I shared a few of the Holy Spirit Realities posts that are on the ministry Facebook page each Tuesday. Last week, I shared a few of the Benefits of Praying in Other Tongues posts which appear each Thursday. This week, I want to share a few of the Billyisms that I have posted over the past few months.  Don't worry. The clothing of power promised by Jesus comes in your size! (Luke 24:49) Instead of saying an "Amen" when vocalizing your agreement with the preacher next Sunday, affirm what the preacher says with a "Hot Diggity Dog". I call God's anointing the "Campbell's Soup Anointing" because it is "M'm! M'm! Good!". Exponential church growth happens when God's exponential power is put on display. The Book of Acts tells of an "explanation-needed" signs and wonders Church. When the Holy Spirit showed His presence, the signs made people wonder. The Gospel is a Show & Tell message. If you think that I am being too emotional in my praise, you evidently don't know where Jesus brought me from or where I am going! Do you like these? Want to read more? New Billyisms are published each Wednesday at www.facebook.com/billyburnsministries. Do yourself a favor. Like the Billy Burns Ministries Facebook page so that you might possibly see (Facebook’s algorithm actually dictates who sees what) the new post each week. ...

09 Sep The Benefits of Praying in Other Tongues – The List

In last week's blog post, I shared what I called Holy Spirit Realities Nuggets. This was actually a compilation of a few of the Holy Spirit Realities posts that I have previously shared on Tuesdays on my Billy Burns Ministries Facebook page. I felt compelled to share these because of Facebook's crazy algorithm which dictates who sees what. I am fairly confident that many of you hadn't seen these nuggets before. This week, I want to share another compilation of posts. Every Thursday, I share what I consider to be one of, if not the most important series of posts that I publish on Facebook ...
