The Theme to be Filled by the Spirit Has Been Suppressed in Many Churches

May 9, 2010

The practice of being filled completely with the Holy Spirit had been suppressed in the majority of the Christian churches. However, one of the themes in Paul’s the letter to the Ephesians is to be filled by Christ. Look at these examples:

• Ephesians 1 says Jesus Christ is “…the fullness of Him who fills everything in every way” (Eph. 1:23).

• Ephesians 2 says that in Jesus Christ we are “being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by His Spirit” (Eph. 2:22).

• Ephesians 3 tells believers to be filled “to the measure of all the fullness of God” (Eph. 3:19).

• Ephesians 4 says the saints are to attain “to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ” (Eph. 4:13).

• Ephesians 5 says believers are to “be filled with the Spirit” (Eph. 5:18).

• Ephesians 6 tells believers, “Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that…you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand” (Eph. 6:13).

It appears as if the theme in Ephesians is that we need to do everything to stand our ground, and that is to be sure that we are filled with the Holy Spirit. In Ephesians 5, the verb in the phrase, “Be filled with the Spirit,” has the meaning in Greek “to be continually filled” (Eph. 5:18). Therefore, being continually filled by the Holy Spirit is doing everything to stand our ground, which is the meaning behind Paul’s metaphor when he said to “put on the full armor of God” (Eph. 6:13). 

 I was not taught to be filled with the Holy Spirit in graduate school, but I was taught in the school of the Holy Spirit as the Lord wanted to transform me by the power of God.

In my book: Transformed by the Power of God: Learning to be Clothed in Jesus Christ. I will teach you how to be filled and how to be clothed so you too so you can become transformed and walk out in your birthright in Christ. It will be published in September 2010 by Destiny Image.

Why Should you Become Surprisingly Supernatural?

November 21, 2012

Why should you become Surprisingly Supernatural?

Why get and read the book: Surprisingly Supernatural?

Well, if you are a believer, a Christian, you have been

under an attack by the evil one, who has deceived the

Body of Christ from becoming true Christians. True Christians

are completely filled by the Holy Spirit; know how to

Hear the Lord’s voice; know how to heal the sick; know

how to discern evil spirits; and know how to cast out spirits.

But most believers are never been taught that. This book:

Surprisingly Supernatural: A Practical Guide to Releasing

the Gifts of the Spirit will teach you how to do all those things.

Become a true believer, a believing believer, and demonstrate

that Jesus Christ is God into the world around you.

Get the book and give it to some other believer who has been deceived.

Get Ready For the Wedding Banquet–Get Dressed!

April 4, 2012

Jesus tells us the parable of a king who prepared for his son’s wedding banquet

and servants invited people to the wedding banquet telling them to come,

“but they refused to come” (MT 22:2-3). For the wedding it says,

“For many are invited, but few are chosen” (MT 22:14). There is

a time in scripture that speaks of the falling away

Be sure you

are Clothed for the wedding! My book: “Transformed by the Power of God”

teaches how to be clothed the Wedding Clothes. Google the title, get the

book, and get clothed.

Books to Prepare the Bride of Christ

April 4, 2012

Tranformed by the Power of God: Learning to be Clothed in Jesus Christ” is the first of three books the Lord has had me write. At the end of the third book I realized He was having me write about what the Bride of Christ needs to do. Step #1 was to be clothed in Jesus Christ (see Rom. 13:14). The Lord did say in Rev. 16:15 that you are blessed if you keep your clothes with you! He was not talking about street clothes, He was referring to being clothed in spiritual clothes. .  . in the armor of light (see Rom 13:12). When you are clothed you can demonstrate who the Lord is. The 2nd book which is coming out in 60 days is called “Wake Up! Preparing for the End-Times Outpouring“…. Rev. 16:15 says to stay awake and keep your clothes with you. I suggest if you are interested in becoming the Bride of Christ you should get both of these books to prepare yourself. Wonderful time we are in. When we demonstrate we can do things like this… heal the sick and cast out demons.

Here is a video for you to watch. It’s short, only 1:46.

Wake Up! Is About . . .

March 29, 2012
  • My new release, “Wake Up! Preparing for the End-Times Out-Pouring” is a prophetic trumpet!

    It calls for Christians to awaken to the call of real faith. Wake Up! looks at Daniel and his friend’s lives

    and also at the first disciples lives and it implores believers to embrace the life of true believers.

    Neil calls the true believers “Believing Believers” because Christiainity has lost its meaning.

    Christians were known for releasing the gifts of the Spirit and impacting the world around them.

    Christians were continually fillled by the Holy Spirit and that’s why they could release the gifts.

    Wake UP! shows how we are in the post-defeat of the saints era, and we need to Wake Up!

    Go to Amazon.com and get the book and Wake Up!

Get Dressed for the Wedding Banquet

June 8, 2011

Jesus tells us about the parable of a king who prepared for his

son’s wedding banquet. His servants invited people to the

wedding banquet and told them to come, “but they refused

to come” (MT 22:2-3). About the wedding banquet the

Scripture says, “For many are invited, but few are chosen

(MT 22:14). There is a time mentioned in Scripture that speaks

about a falling away that will happen (Jude 18-19;

2 Pet. 3:3-6). The result is that some fall away, others fall

asleep, and others refuse to come to the wedding banquet

(Rev 16:15). Therefore, as a true believer you need to be

sure that you respond and get ready for the wedding

banquet. The Scripture says we need to be wearing the

wedding clothes (MT 22:11-12). I believe the wedding clothes

represent the Glory of God, being clothed in the Armor of

Light, which is being clothed in Jesus Christ Himself!

(Rm 13:12-14). When you are clothed in Christ, you are

wearing the wedding outfit and then you can demonstrate

who Jesus Christ is to the world around you. You must get

 dressed and demonstrate Jesus to the world around you

(JN 15:5). Those believers are the only ones invited into the

wedding banquet. Those believers who are clothed in Jesus

Christ will demonstrate who He is to the world around them

at the very end of the end-times. Then it is those believers

who are invited into the wedding banquet. The believers

who get into the wedding banquet will have stories to tell

about how Jesus worked through them to heal people,

cast out demons and give prophetic insights to others as

they get to share how Jesus was with them to the very end

of the age (MT 28:20).  My book: Transformed by the Power

of God: Learning to be Clothed in Jesus Christ”  by Neil Gilligan

is a prophetic word to the body of Christ to get dressed in this

hour! You can Google the title to get the book,  read it and be

transformed yourself. You can also go to book stores to get it

or ask your local library to carry it. The bottom line is to get

dressed in Jesus Christ and then demonstrate who He is to

the world around you.

Answered Prayers!

May 20, 2011

Jesus told us how to get “Answered Prayers” He said,

 “If you remain in me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and I will give it to you” (John 15:7-8).

 His word remains in you when when you read the Bible and take it to heart. But how do you remain in Him?

 The Lord Jesus gave me the revelation that I wrote about in my book: “Transformed by the Power of God: Learning to be Clothed in Jesus Christ” by Neil Gilligan.  I was lead to discover that believers are literally supposed to be clothed in Jesus Christ.

 Then I discovered that then when I prayed for healing or for deliverance or for justice the Lord was there and acted on it. My prayers were answered.

 When you are clothed in Jesus Christ that is how you remain in Him and get your prayers answered.

 My book teaches you how to remain in Jesus because you will be clothed in Jesus Christ.

 Google the books title, get the book, and then get your prayers answered!
