Pentecost

But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me. —John 15:26

He is the Holy Ghost. The Lord speaks of the Holy Ghost as a person as much as He would of one of the apostles. On the day of Pentecost, they were all of one accord, in one place, and something happened.

It will happen every day if you have the Spirit. "Suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a mighty rushing wind." This was the Holy Ghost when He came to stay. "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" (Acts 2:3-4).

When this was noised abroad, multitudes came together. What was noised abroad? That these people were all speaking in other languages. The news went through Jerusalem, and the multitude came together and were confounded because every man heard them speak in his own language. Those who came were men out of every nation under heaven.

They heard these hundred and twenty speak in their own language wherein they were born. This is what gathered the people and confounded them. "They were all amazed and marveled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galileans? And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? . . . we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God" (Acts 2:7-8, 11).

Fire of the Holy Ghost, fall on me that I might speak
in other tongues and testify of the mighty
and wonderful works of God. Amen.
