Let This Mind Be In You (41 min)

A Forbidden Friendship (37 min)

PART 5 – David West preaches on the command of 1 John 2:15 – “love not the world”. In expounding this topic he poses three questions: 1. What does the Bible mean by the expression “the world”? 2.

The Baptism and the Filling of the Holy Spirit (33 min)

PART 6 – David West preaches on the difference between the baptism and the filling of the Holy Spirit. ‘Spirit baptism’ is not a ‘second’ experience subsequent to salvation. In fact, the baptiser is the Lord; He baptises ‘in’ the Spirit. This is true of every believer positionally. The ‘filling’ of the Spirit does not mean one person can have more of the Holy Spirit than another. It simply means that a believer should be controlled by the Holy Spirit…
