The pattern was set in Genesis 2:7. God breathed into the nostrils of Adam, causing him to become a life-giving being. Every child that came into the world after that had the same breath of God in them, causing them to become life-giving beings. In other words, Adam’s experience was reproduced many times over in others.
The Bible itself is God-breathed (2 Timothy 3:16). This means that God inspired it, but it was men who got ink on their fingers. Even though it was a work of God, man always has had his part to play in the process. This was true in its formation, and it is just as true today in the sense that this life-giving Book needs to be passed along, producing life in others.
After His death, burial, and resurrection, the Living Christ stood in a room with His disciples and breathed on them (John 20:22,23). I believe that this was the very moment when they became born again. It is clear that Jesus expected this experience to be passed along, causing them to become life-giving beings.
On the Day of Pentecost, the sound of a mighty rushing wind filled the room (Acts 2:4). God breathed His Holy Spirit into the spirits of 120 believers who had gathered together, clearly expecting them to pass their experience along to others. In fact, that very day, through the preaching of the word and by the power of the Holy Spirit, they passed along their experience to 3000 people. They were saved, baptized with water, and baptized with the Holy Spirit, which has been reproduced many times over all over the world.
Since then, many people have been baptized with the Holy Spirit, praise God! However, it is not enough that we have had this experience ourselves; we must become life-giving beings, passing along our experience to others. This is where things quickly break down. As I work with people today, I often find that while they revel in their own experience, even pointing to it with pride, they rarely lay hands on others, imparting their experience to someone else. When the power of their initial experience fades, it causes them to seek a rebaptism. I don’t believe we need to reproduce our initial experience again. Nowhere do we see the disciples going back to the Upper Room for a repeat experience or find them looking to be “topped up” again and again. We never need to seek a rebaptism once we have learned how to pass our experience along to others. We will never wonder where the power went once we begin letting the Holy Spirit out, day-by-day. That is what this seminar is all about. Just as surely as we need God to breath His Holy Spirit into us, we need to learn to breathe Him out to others. If we don’t, the process of truly being a life-giving Christian is incomplete. It is my hope that this seminar will inspire us to begin letting Him out. It is as simple as breathing!

HOW TO PREPARE FOR THIS SEMINAR
It would be good if you could miss some meals ahead of this time, as it could help you become more sensitive. You can even fast your phone and schedule, for the same reason.
I would suggest you read 1 Corinthians 12,13,14 as much as you can before you come.
Begin reading the Book of Acts as soon as possible.
My notes on this subject will be available on my website and on Amazon for purchase, if you want to read them before you come. There is something powerful about the combination of reading and hearing a message.
