Suddenly

And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house. —Acts 2:2

At Pentecost, suddenly they heard a sound like a mighty, rushing wind. This Holy Ghost we are holding up is a mighty power. He came suddenly from heaven, like a windstorm, like floods of water filling the vessels, and as fire upon the heads of one hundred twenty people.

As it were, cloven tongues of fire sat upon their heads. Then the Holy Ghost went in and took possession of the temple. He took full possession of the machinery, wound it up and set it running for God. They staggered like drunken people and fell. This mighty power took possession of their tongues, and spoke through them in other languages.

It said away back in the times of the prophets God said that through men of "stammering lips and another tongue will He speak to this people." Think of that! God's doing such a mighty thing! But some do not want to believe. That is the way the Holy Ghost came, and still comes today; and people say it is some other power.

They did not lose their minds; they had just found them! They had the spirit of love and of a sound mind. We never have a sound mind until we get the mind of Christ. People who cannot understand, say these things are foolishness. We are told the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. This is the power and wisdom of God, not the work of the devil; people saying so doesn't make it so.

God had complete control. Suddenly, He came in and took possession. The Holy Ghost is in the world today.

Suddenly come over me, Holy Spirit, and
transform me with Your fire. Amen.
