“And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this? 13Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.” Acts 2:12-13
When the Holy Spirit fell on the day of Pentecost, the Spirit gave utterance to them all and they spoke in tongues. There were two responses from the people. The first responders asked, “What does this mean?” The second responders accused them of being drunk. The first responders wanted to know more, they were open to know what it was all about. The second responders were doubters and skeptics. What group do you the most identify with?
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” John 14:26
Everything that Jesus said that the father wants us to know, is recorded in the scriptures. The Helper, the Holy Spirit, will help you know the scriptures when you read them. He will help you make sense of them and understand them. Though you may not understand all you read (no one does), He will help you understand everything that God wants you to know in proportion to the light you walk in. Trust the Helper, He will help you.
“And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.” Ephesians 3:19
If Paul prayed for the believers in Ephesus to be filled with the fullness of God; and this was written for us, then we therefore can be filled with the fullness of God. Let’s not be just Sunday Christians, let’s be everyday filled with the Spirit Christians.
“And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that are wise hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded thee; Exodus 31:6
The instructions were already given by God on how to make the ark, the tabernacle, the priestly garments and the artifacts for worship. Then God gave the ability to man to carry out the work to the finest detail. So too with the New Testament church, God spoke His will, go and make disciples, and then He gave the baptism of His Spirit to carry out His work.
“While Peter thought on the vision, the Spirit said unto him, Behold, three men seek thee. 20Arise therefore, and get thee down, and go with them, doubting nothing: for I have sent them. 21Then Peter went down to the men which were sent unto him from Cornelius; and said, Behold, I am he whom ye seek: what is the cause wherefore ye are come? 22And they said, Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and one that feareth God, and of good report among all the nation of the Jews, was warned from God by an holy angel to send for thee into his house, and to hear words of thee. 23Then called he them in, and lodged them. And on the morrow Peter went away with them, and certain brethren from Joppa accompanied him.” Acts 10:19-23
What we see in these verses is the Spirit of God at work. In a vision, an angel told Cornelius to go get Peter and The Spirit told Peter to go to Cornelius. What cooperation we see here. While one is called to go get, the other is called to go to. Saints of God, we need the Holy Spirit to move amongst us and make such divine appointments and give such clear orders.
