I love the workings of The Holy Spirit in God’s people! If you have never asked to be baptized in the Holy Spirit you may never know the potential that you have been given by God here in earth! I believe He was saying in these scriptures here that. His disciples didn’t need to be thinking about when the time was so much as they just needed to be filled with the Holy Spirit, and empowered to be able to be the witnesses that they needed to be !! It is time to occupy!
“He answered, “You don’t need to know the dates or the times; the Father has kept these under his own authority. But you will receive power when the Ruach HaKodesh comes upon you; you will be my witnesses both in Yerushalayim and in all Y’hudah and Shomron, indeed to the ends of the earth!” Acts 1:7-8 CJB.
I dare you to ask Him to Baptize you with this power from on high! I know that it will change your life because I know how it changed mine! I have never been the same.. Oh some of you might say “I am afraid I may get something from the enemy if I ask..” Well I did the same thing but when I got home, I cried out to God and said Lord, I just want to see that what I just experienced, was really you, and I opened my bible and this is what my eyes fell upon. Oh yes, He wants us to have this power!!
“Is there any father here who, if his son asked him for a fish, would instead of a fish give him a snake? Or if he asked for an egg would give him a scorpion? So if you, even though you are bad, know how to give your children gifts that are good, how much more will the Father keep giving the Ruach HaKodesh from heaven to those who keep asking him!” Luke 11:11-13 CJB.
