All the biblical references to Him refer to an overtly supernatural work, which is to continue until the completion of God's purposes on the earth (John 15:16; 20:21-22; Acts 1:8). The power of the baptism of the Holy Spirit was so crucial to New Testament Christianity that the apostle Paul asked new converts in Ephesus if they had received it after they believed on Christ (Acts 19:1-2).

The Holy Spirit of God is the divine delivery system, God's own hand extended to man in the earthly realm. He transfers the riches of heaven to God's vessels on the earth.

He does this so that you and I can be witnesses to the life-changing power of our supernatural Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Never underestimate the power of the Spirit!

God is waiting for us to adjust our sails to the wind of the Holy Spirit and be transported into the center of His purpose. Listen to the promise of God spoken thousands of years ago by the prophet Joel: "I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit" (Joel 2:28-29).

If you have said yes to God's fiery baptism in the Spirit, then Someone holy dwells in you—Someone who is the Anointing. His presence brings divine revelation, strength, comfort and power. His strength can be made manifest in your weakness (2 Cor. 12:9).

This Power Is for You
God commissioned all of us to preach the gospel and make disciples of all men. Instead, we preach a form of godliness and deny its power.

He anointed us to lay hands on the sick and see them recover but many of us preach (or at least secretly believe) that God doesn't heal anymore. But God wasn't caught off guard by our humanity or by our doubt and unbelief.

Apostolic authority is coming back to the church. The church is again receiving the power to unleash revival because God intends to cover the earth with His glory (Num. 14:21).

The first time God covered the earth, He flooded it with water unleashed from above and beneath (Gen. 7:11). I am convinced it will also take a flood from two directions to cover the earth with revival and release God's glory.

You already know about the anointing of God that falls upon men and women. As for the "fountains of the great deep," Jesus said: "He that believeth on me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water" (John 7:38).

Christ told His disciples in Acts 1:8: "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth."

The Greek word for power here is dunamis. According to Strong's Exhaustive Concordance, it means, "force, miraculous power, ability, abundance, meaning, might, strength, violence, mighty (wonderful) work."

Are you prepared to live life without this power just because someone said God stopped keeping His promises? What can the baptism in the Holy Spirit do for you?

The Spirit Will Make You a Wonder
Many of us still believe that if somehow we "pray right" or "do right," then "He might." But God, the Holy Spirit, is out to do nothing less than make you a wonder, by living inside your body and showing up in every area of your life.

I am a bona fide, Holy Spirit-filled, fire-baptized wonder because of Him! I live when I should die, and I shout with joy when I should cry.

He feeds me with spiritual food that the unredeemed know nothing about. I am a wonder of His grace, His mercy, His majesty and His healing power.

Acts 2:1-4 describes the first time the Holy Spirit came in power: "And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

"And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance."

Once the Holy Spirit touches you and endues you with power, you find it nearly impossible to be quiet and still. Power changes things!
