Today is Pentecost Sunday! This is the day, over two thousand years ago, when the Holy Ghost was first poured out on the one hundred and twenty in the upper room (Acts 2). This holy Ghost is an amazing experience. It was powerful then and it’s still powerful today.
Some say the Holy Ghost isn’t being poured out anymore. I beg to differ. I received the Holy Ghost as a seven year old child and have been refilled numerous times since that day. Acts 2:38-39 tells us what we must do to be saved and who it’s for. It’s for whosoever will, come and drink of the Water of life freely.
How do I know when I have received the Holy Ghost? The Bible says we will speak with tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance. This is still how it happens today. A study showed how the frontal part of the brain lights up when we talk. Anytime we speak this part of the brain responds. The study did an experiment on people who speak in tongues. They were connected to the proper wires to measure brain activity. They were told to worship God as they normally would do. As they did this, they began to speak in tongues. The frontal part of the brain lit up when they were just worshipping, but when they began to speak in tongues, the frontal area went black. The words in their language were coming from their brain, but the words from that Heavenly language were as the Spirit gave the utterance. It can’t be taught or learned. It must come from God.
If you haven’t received the Holy Ghost since you believed (Acts 19:1-6), I urge you to seek for it today. There is no better day than Pentecost Sunday to experience this great Salvation!
Until next time, have a healthy and blessed week!
