He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. —John 7:38

Jesus said when the Holy Ghost comes in, "he shall testify of me," then you shall be witnesses. In the mouth of two or three witnesses, every word shall be established. When the Holy Ghost comes in to abide, He comes into the body like rivers of living water. The power comes from the heart, not the head. We talk through the intellect. The Holy Ghost talks through the Spirit. The Holy Ghost testifies when it is God's work.

Peter said, "This is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel" (Acts 2:16; Joel 2:28-32). "This" special thing is referring to speaking in tongues. The apostles, acting like drunken men, were talking in other languages—all this is "that spoken by the prophet." God said when His Spirit was poured out, He would speak with stammering lips and another tongue, but some will not believe it.

The cloven tongues have been seen. In Dallas and Chicago fire was seen upon the heads of some. It is the same Holy Ghost speaking in other tongues. Why not see the cloven tongues of fire?

When the Holy Ghost comes in, He will take possession of the house, take the uppermost seat, and speak Himself.

Lord Jesus, baptize me with Your Spirit, that out of my
heart and spirit might flow living waters. Take
possession of me, and speak
of Yourself. Amen.
