Acts 2:14; 16-17; 39 The effect of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is TRANSFORMING POWER! Acts 2:14; 16-17;39 "But Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them, Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and heed my words.""But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams."......."for the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call." AND as a result, Acts 2:41, "Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them." This Baptism does not happen in secret! We know it! Not only are we empowered, but we're also given our undeniable evidence of this Baptism! In His wisdom, God took the Baptism of the Holy Spirit out of the theoretical by giving the believer the evidence.....the initial physical evidence of the Baptism, speaking in tongues! Without the physical evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, all you have is a Promise. Take time in prayer today and wait on the Lord, don't be in a hurry. Seek His heart and ask for Him to fill you to overflowing with His Holy Spirit! Come Holy Spirit, Come!
