As Pentecost draws nearer, I found this post.
It’s a lovely testimony from my old mentor, sadly no longer with us. I believe this will be the expectation, if not the experience, of many this coming Pentecost! Food for prayer!
“And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.” Acts 2:2.
I was speaking recently on the subject of the word: suddenly.
As I was speaking about The Upper Room, suddenly, The LORD took me into The Upper Room during the time that the disciples were waiting on the promise.
I could hear the conversations and see the faces of those there and this what The LORD showed me.
The disciples, didn’t really know what to expect, and there was a discussion going on about what to expect.
Some were expecting Jesus to return. Some were expecting another person to come and lead them. In actual fact, nothing was settled in, because of the different expectations.
The LORD then showed me that with all the possible scenarios, there was a real problem.
Then on the day of Pentecost, there was an Agreement between all of them. They said, whatever God wants for us, we know it’s for our best, and they surrendered to that and were all in Agreement.
It was then that I heard the sound of the wind. It was like walking near an aeroplane, as it’s getting ready to fly away .
Then the Flames fell.
The flames were translucent, and they didn’t sit in their heads, but they covered all their heads and the upper shoulder — like from the chest upwards.
I just couldn’t understand how they were not being burnt.
There was such a mighty rush, that they couldn’t find words in their own language to speak, this is when God gave them tongues, to be able to express the unimaginable, as no human words could express what was happening to them.
I just want to say, this is what happened to me. I’m not asking you to accept what I’m saying, but in the meeting, as I was sharing the Vision, as it was being shown to me, there was a mighty move of God and I had never heard such praise from that Church until that day. (P.R. Barnes – 2009)
