Watch Brad Long explain three reasons why Jesus needs you and me to be baptized in the Holy Spirit.
This is some of the teaching that is further developed at length in the Dunamis Project, a 6 part conference series where you can discover what we mean by the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
What is the Dunamis Project
The Dunamis Project is the central training of PRMI to help you cooperate with the Holy Spirit. We can not be very effective in any kind of ministry unless we have received the empowering work of the Holy Spirit (the baptism of the Holy Spirit).
Thousands of Christians around the world have experienced a dynamic change in their ministry as they have learned how to cooperate with the Holy Spirit.
They have stepped into a deeper relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and found new life and joy in more effective ministry to others.
Thank you for the work and teaching you have “Long” communicated. Rev. Sandy McClinton and Marge VanMeter (sp?) were early advocates of PRMI in Ann Arbor Michigan and it was in a “Spirit Alive” event in Rev. McClinton’s church that I first encountered teaching and stories about the Holy Spirit I could relate to. Around that same time I had come across the thinking of Dutch Reformers like Abraham Kuyper. It was Kuyper who, during his Stone Lectures on Calvinism at Princeton, famously argued “There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, Mine!” Since charismatic and culture forming emphases are rarely found together this left me with a choice. Which would I choose? I chose both which meant I would never be fully affirmed in any faith community. I hope, then, you will understand why I would want to encourage you and others to look, if you haven’t already done so, into the Kuyperian Reformation. Kuyper was not only its key figure but, though not Charismatic, has been seen as a forerunner of the championing of the Holy Spirit’s role in the work of redemption and renewal. Jan H. Boer’s You Can Do Greater Things Than Christ: Science Without Faith Is Dead makes that case. It might be available at the Institute for Christian Studies in Toronto. ICS is a graduate school operating out of and refining the insights of the Kuyperian Reformation.
