Outpouring of the Spirit
“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” Acts 2:1-4KJV
The Believer’s Bible Commentary makes the following observations, “The Feast of Pentecost, typifying the pouring out of the Holy Spirit, was 50 days after the Feast of First fruits, which spoke of the resurrection of Christ. On this Day of Pentecost, the disciples were all with one accord in one place. The coming of the Spirit involved a sound to hear, a sight to see, and a miracle to experience. The sound, which was from heaven and filled the whole house, was like a rushing mighty wind. The sight to see was divided tongues, as of fire, resting upon each of the disciples. It does not say they were tongues of fire, but tongues as of fire. The miracle to experience, connected with Pentecost, was the filling of the Holy Spirit, followed by the speaking with other tongues.”
Let us pray for a mighty move of God in these last days!
