When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on tem , and they spoke in tongues and prophesied. Acts 19: 6
What I heard from Jesus today is: All started with the filling of the Holy Spirit
It is so easy for us to focus on the two years of Paul's daily teaching in the lecture hall of Tyrannus and how the Word of the Lord "spread widely and grew in power" (v. 20). But Jesus led me to look at what happened before that. I deeply believe that what happened for those twelve men to be filled by the Holy Spirit happened to most of those Paul taught and that Ephesus later became a centre for training missionaries.
We, a group of four people, just witnessed how powerful it was of the power of the Holy Spirit in the International Alpha Conference two weeks ago. We were surrounded by archbishops, bishops, priests, pastors, leaders and Christians speaking and singing in tongues. 160 archbishops and bishops and more than 1,500 priests, pastors, leaders and Christians. I was being prayed for at least a few times by prayer warriors speaking in tongues and being renewed, strengthened and anointed. We experienced quite a number of times when people sang in tongues and I joined in by singing in tongues too. It was so powerful!
When I visited Nicky Gumble's home this January asking him of what he thought of about some churches removed the three Holy Spirit sessions from their Alpha Course. He said, "It's just like to have a Mercedes Benz but without an engine. It can be put to a showroom but cannot be a real car for it cannot move." I think Nicky's word may give us a true picture of why the early church was on fire, why International Alpha was on fire and why there are more than 18 millions people completed Alpha Course all over the world. 18 millions, can you believe that? It is the Holy Spirit! We need to be with Jesus daily and to be filled by the Holy Spirit daily!
Without the Holy Spirit everything would just be "information". There are too much "information" around you everyday and you don't need to have more and more "information". What you really need is "transformation"!
Dear Holy Spirit,
Come and fill us that we can be filled, anointed and strengthened to do God's Kingdom work. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
