When they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men...and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. —Acts 4:13
When men and women come in contact with this work of the Holy Ghost, hearing His words and seeing His works, there is danger lest they attribute the power present to some other agency other than the Spirit of God.
There is a danger lest they condemn the power and condemn God's servants. How often have we heard ministers say, when they heard men, women, and children speaking in other tongues, "Oh, it is the work of the devil."
Now hear what God says about that. They are speaking against the Holy Spirit. God has been working in our cities and will work in much greater measure. We expect to see greater signs and wonders. If the saints stand together as one, pray together, and shout victory together, then God will show Himself as our mighty God and Savior.
Lord God, as we praise You and give
You glory, do signs and wonders in
our midst that others may come
to Christ as Savior. Amen.
