The Spirit filled life of Hubert Lindsey...(a former Baptist)

Hubert’s witness of the Spirit filled life always revealed the power of a Living Christ and the holy standard that is taught in the word of God. There were no limitations on the power of Christ that Hubert Lindsey preached about. Souls were saved and changed under the anointing of his preaching. Many were healed through Christ that he ministered. Many scholars had theologies changed and set in order under the right division of the Brother Lindsey’s teaching. What makes this biography so interesting is that everything Hubert taught and preached had the potential to become real life in any man or woman through the Spirit of Christ. Both the Bible and the work of the Holy Spirit confirmed what Hubert preached concerning the Spirit filled life. Hubert Lindsey was a man totally given to the Spirit filled life. Hubert was confident this truth was confirmed in the Holy Scriptures. Hubert Lindsey taught the Spirit filled life in all of his teachings to all of his listeners. In the following verse Biblical records prove believers in Christ (not unbelievers) were “filled with the Holy Ghost” on the day of Pentecost.

• Acts 2:4…And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance

The subject of the Spirit filled life is a foggy subject in the religious world. The reason the Spirit filled life is not taught in the mainstream like it should be is that man’s opinion is divided, traditional teachings are divided, religious beliefs and practices are divided and man’s religious ideals are divided. Nothing tells the truth about Spirit filled life accept the Word of God and the Spirit of truth. Both are in unity and both agree that sanctification is of the human soul is necessary! It is the intention of this writer to magnify the truth about Entire Sanctification through the Spirit filled life of Hubert T. Lindsey and the records of the Holy Bible. Remember, Hubert wasn’t “filled” with the Spirit until after he “put off the flesh” and received the Baptism with the Holy Ghost like on the day of Pentecost.

• Col 2:10-11…And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:

When Hubert put off the flesh, “Control of the physical body” he died to all that he was. Then, the Spirit “filled” him. When Hubert Lindsey “died to self” the Old Hubert got out of the way. Then, the fullness of the Indwelling Spirit took control of Hubert. There was no more struggle with the Old Adam. Inwardly, through the Baptism with the Holy Ghost Hubert was cleansed from the Adamic nature. Outwardly, Hubert’s physical being was taken over by the Holy Ghost which enabled him to speak in unknown tongues. Remember, Hubert Lindsey was a former Baptist and Baptist’s forbid speaking in unknown tongues.

From a Scriptural standpoint both the inner and outer work of the Holy Ghost in the heart of man is the same today as it was in the Early Church. The inner and outer evidences of Entire Sanctification take place in any man of any denomination that’s “filled” with the Holy Ghost.

• Rom 6:6…Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

• Acts 19:6…the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.
