BURSTING FORTH

August 08:2020

When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. Utterly amazed, they asked: “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language? Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs—we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!
Acts 2:1-11 (NIV)

`

You cannot have an encounter with the Spirit of God and still remain the same. Major life events always follow divine encounters, which will often result in significant shifts. These manifestations of God usually result in our “bursting forth” into unprecedented experiences and possibilities.

The Holy Spirit is the Master of manifestations; He will faithfully manifest the will, the love and the glories of God whenever and wherever the right atmosphere is created for Him. By the same token, we should endeavour never to put Him in a box through limiting thoughts, ideas and expectations.

What happened on the day of Pentecost, as revealed in the second chapter of Acts, can be referred to as the “early rain” outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Now, the body of Christ is about to experience the “latter rain” outpouring of the Holy Spirit, which will usher us into the second advent of Jesus Christ to the earth.

The manifestations of the latter rain will totally supersede those that were written in the book of Acts. They will be more glorious, and characterized by the greater works that Jesus promised would be the experience of believers as a result of His resurrection and ascension.

Beloved, I pray that your life will become a testimonial of God’s glorious manifestations starting from today. Amen!
