Are you praying to God, or has prayer become your God? Through prayer and fasting a believer can exhaust their resources and become poor in Spirit. Today on A Study In The Word, Evangelist Jimmy Swaggart and panel discuss the finished work of Christ. Brother Bates shares his personal testimony of prayer and fasting and how God showed him to get his eyes off his own self-efforts, and to rely solely on the fact that Christ already accomplished what He was trying to achieve through his own works. The panel explains the sanctification of the Holy Spirit that comes at salvation, and the second subsequent work of the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
