HOLY GHOST GOT A HOLD ON ME
The Day of Pentecost
Why tongues of Fire? Tongues symbolize speech and the communication of the Gospel. Fire symbolizes God’s purifying presence, which burns away the undesirable elements of our lives of others. “Holy Ghost Got a Hold on Me” People spoke in other languages—God works all kinds of miracles to spread the Gospel, using many languages as He calls all kinds of people to become followers. No matter what your race, color, nationality, or language, God speaks to you. Are you listening? 2 When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place, 2 And suddenly a sound came from heaven like a rushing violent wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 There appeared to them tongues resembling fire, which were being distributed [among them], and they rested on each one of them [as each person received the Holy Spirit]. 4 And they were all filled [that is, diffused throughout their being] with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues (different languages), as the Spirit was giving them the ability to speak out [clearly and appropriately].
8 But you will receive power and ability when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be My witnesses [to tell people about Me] both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8
John the Baptist spoke about the Holy Spirit’s baptizing with Fire. (16 John answered them all by saying, “As for me, I baptize you [only] with water; but One who is mightier [more powerful, more noble] than I is coming, and I am not fit to untie the strap of His sandals [even as His slave]. He will baptize you [who truly repent] with the Holy Spirit and [you who remain unrepentant] with fire. Luke 3:16).
God made His presence known to this group of believers in a spectacular way—a Mighty rushing wind, Fire, and His Holy Spirit. Would you like God to reveal Himself to you in such recognizable ways? He may do so, but be wary of forcing your expectations on God.
And it shall be in the last days, says God, that I will pour out My Spirit upon all mankind; and your sons and daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.
REMINDER: HOLY GHOST GOT A HOLD ON ME!!!!
Love you and the Blessings of God be upon you
