Of the gift of the Holy Spirit, Acts 1:8 says: "But ye shall receive power, after the Holy Ghost is come upon you...."
The power Jesus promised His disciples manifested itself in some startling ways on the day of Pentecost. Those twelve men suddenly shot into public awareness like comets burning with the incandescence of divine power...their remarkable preaching, invincible courage, unshakable confidence, and miraculous healing are because of the Holy Spirit indwelling them...The One whom Jesus sent to be our helper and to transform our lives."
Make no mistake or excuse: Jesus desires EVERY one of His children to be filled with His Holy Spirit! Time to cast off the lies and seek the face of the LORD.
ARE WE full counsel saints? Well, the New Testament message in Christ is repent, believe, be water baptized, and be baptized with the Holy Ghost. Undeniably. Acts 1:8; 2:4, 38-39, etc. Are you baptized with the Holy Spirit? BEING filled with the Holy Spirit simply means after being born again, coming to a fresh surrender, asking Jesus to fill you and take complete control and empower you with HIS power. Read Acts 1:8: Did He say before or "AFTER"? JESUS says "Don't you dare attempt to do MY ministry work until you've been to the cross AND experienced Pentecost!" (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8)
